once upon a time, this game would have generated a couple pages of commentary on here during the run up to kickoff.

I would expect the green machine to be jacked up for this one. It won't be enough and Sterling should win rather comfortably. I could see Sterling making a nice post season run in 5A. JCA and Montini will be lurking in that North bracket though.

Geneseo looks like it will struggle to get to the playoffs this year.

morris and geneso I think would create more buzz cause it appears they are similar caliber teams and both fighting for the playoffs

I expect sterling to win this game relatively easily

That's what happens when you banish yourselves to the Western Big Six! Poke the tiger

All kidding aside, Sterling should win easy. They're in a nice run of talent, and good coaching, too. Was up there for a soccer game last night. Great to see Kinger, but more impressed by the improvements to Roscoe Eades Stadium. Would love to see something similar at Morris.

It's difficult to get too much of a buzz going for a blowout game. I've seen Geneseo play twice this year, and if Sterling is anything close to what they have been the last two years, it will be running clock time again. The last two years Sterling easily could of put up 80 plus points on Geneseo, if they had wanted to. I have watched Geneseo for 40 plus years and I have never seen them so uncompetitive against a team.

How about a Geneseo vs. Rochelle game for old times sake?

I honestly had no idea they still played each other.

When I first came to Turk's that was the big HS game of the year. Over the years I have seen Geneseo play four or five times but I don't think I have ever seen a game that Rochelle has been in.

Just now seeing this. Thank you TC for paging me as I have some things I want to say about this years team.

Not necessarily referring to anybody here but there are plenty out there who think this years Geneseo team is a doormat. I understand it's easy to think that based off the scores from the Moline and Sterling games but that's far from the truth. The Moline game was only 14-3 with 7:00 left before the Maroons wore them down and the Sterling game was only 21-7 at half. Geneseo had a great opportunity to cut into the lead and keep the game competitive but it unfortunately didn't work out they way we hoped and the Warriors put the pedal to the floor. Not trying to make the games sound closer than the scores indicate because Moline is far better than most outside of the WB6 will give them credit for and Sterling is on a far different level from the rest of the NIB12 (-2) but these games were not a case of the Leafs getting beaten to a pulp until halftime then subbing in reserves to kill the rest of the game. Is this a Geneseo team that people are accustomed to? No. Are they primed to make a deep run in the playoffs? No. Will they even make the playoffs? Don't know but they are by no means a doormat.

I used to get much more excited about games, especially Geneseo-Rochelle, dating back to classic battles in the '70s.
Maybe high school football is losing a bit of its luster or prep sports message boards in general.

Message boards are definitely less popular. Passť really.

Most people have moved on to Twitter or other means of communication.
