IHSA Football 2021 Fall Season Preview Biggest Headlines and Questions With Coach Big Pete

Well 2021 Fall Season Is Here And There Are Plenty Of Storylines/Questions

Covid Took Our 2020 Fall But Now We Are Back IHSA Football Family

Make Sure To Watch Video On The Bottom For Full Preview

How much do you take the Spring Season into the Fall Season?

I don't take anything..... Spring was a weird, crazy ride that no one wants to do again. It was pure chaos and it was anybody's game during the season. This Fall will bring back a sense of normalcy to IHSA Football

Can anyone stop Montini, East St. Louis, ICCP, Rochester, Lincoln Way East, Mount Carmel, St. Rita?

These teams are going be something special this season. Especially with the reclassifications of Montini to 3A and ICCP to 2A. East St. Louis has a young QB but has one of the best WR cores in the Illinois not if the Midwest. Mount Carmel looks ready to rock this season and Coach Lynch wants another title. Lincoln Way East looks for another ring under the Zvonar dynasty. St. Rita wants that IHSA state title and everyone should be scared. That is a grown man's offensive line right there.

Ref Shortage

Helicopter parents, snowplow parents, yelling coaches mix for a horrible future of getting refs for youth sports and high school sports.

TELL ME WHY? Why Have Some (very few) Chicagoland Area Prep Reporters Become More & More Defensive On Twitter?

Can't be critical of them or they will block you. Can't bring up a fact or they will block you. Can't mention a tweet that is not factual or they will block you.

Thank You Central, Southern Illinois reporters for being good reporters and not giant snowflakes.


Looks like some teams got a lot a gains in the IHSA Transfer Portal. But I'm sure the IHSA is paying attention (I'm Joking). Of course not....

TELL ME WHY 2? Why Does Wheaton Warrenville South Feel Like A Team Ready To Win A Title?

That Sean Norris hire by WWS was one of the smartest hires in the IHSA. Coach Norris brings energy and youth to the Tigers.

Will the IHSA do something about these reclassifications in the future?

Montini at 3A what in the blue hell? ICCP and Bishop McNamara going to 2A is like grown men playing against children. Many more horror stories of reclassifications that need to be looked at by the IHSA. (I'm Joking).... Its not going to happen LOL!

2 Big Name Coaches Leaving After 2021 Fall

Brother Rice Head Coach Brian Badke & Bishop McNamara Legend Head Coach Richard Zianni. Coach Badke one hell of a guy and a true leader to those kids. Coach Zianni a legend and a king in the Kankakee area. Both will be missed and both have help boys become men.

Warren Township Is HUNGRY!!!!!

Coach McNulty has got his players wanting that IHSA Title. McNulty got these kids ready to go to DeKalb

It Has Been A Long Time Old Friend......


Bolingbrook, Wheaton St. Francis, Wheaton Warrenville South, Hersey, Glenbard West, Geneseo

NEW Illinois Head Coach & Illinois Native Bret Bielma Is KILLING IT IN ILLINOIS!!!

Coach Bielema has made his staff available to all the IHSA Coaches and impressed Illini Recruits

Tell Me Why We (INCLUDING ME) Continue To Overrate Illinois QBs?

Illinois is a beef state and will always be a beef state for recruiters. We produce the big boys. We don't really have a good history of production with QBs in College.

Batavia, St. Charles North, Morgan Park, Edwardsville, East St. Louis, St. Francis Scare Me In The Future

Have seen nothing but 2023, 2024, and even 2025 recruits from these teams. They are going to be good in the future

How Long Will It Take For Sandburg's New Head Coach Troy McAllister To Turn Things Around?

You Remember The Book "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie", Well If You Give Derek Leonard A Skilled QB. He Will Want A IHSA State Title!!!

Rochester Hank Beatty is the complete real deal and Pre-Season nominee for Deep Dish Football Player of the year.


Why are people sleeping on Naz this season? They have a highly skilled QB and dangerous group of athletes. Oh, and look Tim Racki is still head coach.. Come on IHSA Football Family

Montini Wins 3A Title..... No Need For Other Teams To Show Up

Its Over!!!! Montini moves to 3A and all the teams have no chance. Does Montini have talent, yup no doubt about it. BUT, some of those rural schools that run that Triple Option, Wing T, Double Wing could give the Broncos a run for their money. You can have all the talent in the world but if you don't have technique.... ITS GOING TO BE A LONG GAME

Glenbard South IS THE REAL DEAL.....

GBS & Coach Crissey are Illinois best kept secrets in the IHSA. GBS looks like a huge contender that people need to be talking about.

Morgan Park Football Right Now

Coach James has got a team that is going to take IHSA by storm this Fall and in coming years.

Some Of The NUIC Going To The 8 Man

NUIC lost some big teams to the 8 Man Football. This will be case for a lot of the smaller teams in the IHSA due to low participation.


Remember Deep Dish Football Is Just Not About Recruiting

But About The Love Of The Game Of IHSA Football
