    Please note that Trinity is #1 because new rankings aren’t out yet.

    Ugh, I can't vote.
    After this is JTown, I think T faces X 1-5.
    I hope I'm wrong, but something is off course on Shelbyville Rd.

    Not off course, it’s just that the road is a little longer than we are used to. Maybe it isn’t that the road is longer. Maybe we just aren’t quite as far down the road as we usually are at this point in the season. Coach Lampley said that every team had to build its own road to the championship. Trinity has the finest road builders anywhere. I trust them to get it right.

    It was a young team to start with that has been gutted by injuries. I was told we started 6 sophs on defense against Male. I haven't given up on them.

    And only gave up 17 points to a very good Male offense!

    Naperville Central's two losses were to Lincoln-Way East and Hinsdale Central

    LWE is the #1 team in Illinois and ranked #41 in America by Maxpreps. They won 38-19. LWE is the defending Class 8A Champions

    Hinsdale won by 1 point, they are the #24 team in Ilinois

    Everything suggests Trinity should win this one at home, but it should be tough

    Also for anyone wondering, Naperville is a very affluent suburb of Chicago

    It is almost a 5 hour trip by car going the speed limit, with traffic and school buses it will be a six hour road trip.

    Which is why I am more concerned with the end result than the immediate product.

    Yes. Some seem to think the sky is falling now. I'm not too worried about it. As far as end result, well, it could go either way. I don't like to see the Rocks lose but I don't expect to win every game every year either. I really like this team and feel they will see their share of success. Might be this year, might be further down the road.

    Naperville Central won’t be a cake walk. There QB is a Western Michigan commit I believe. I think Trinity will win but it should be close.

    Don't Trinity have 70 or 80 Juniors and Seniors?

    Truth be told - WE - T fans are spoiled.
    We have been blessed with "riches" far and above any other program - IMVHO.
    And we have achieved more than others.
    I am not saying it was not hard - earned

    We have been very fortunate in the past to escape major injuries, etc.
    Adversity is not something we usually encounter.
    This year is different.
    It's football - and it's kids playing a game to the best of their ability.
    Let's see how the rest of the season unfolds.

    Trinity is a one point favorite.
