Belly ache after homecooking

For all the officials I know around the valley, I’m sorry. This column has been brewing for a week and a half. Yes, it’s a knock on a group of officials. But thankfully it’s not directed at anyone I know.

Either way the column had to be written.

 

Grin and Barrett: The clock has struck midnight

Is it March already? With the Oregon football team not having a stellar season, I’ve mentally moved on to basketball season.

As much of a college football fan I am, my first love is basketball.

The weather’s getting a little chillier and it is time to move inside.

 

Hard Facts: Freshen up with a little potpourri

Can the Rays out National League the Phillies?

It wasn’t a matter of if the Rays would win at home, but when.

It looks like nobody beats Cole Hamels in the postseason.

 

Tis the weekend for volleyball

I found the title appropriate since some stores are already putting up Christmas displays.

But seriously, if volleyball is your cup of tea then get ready for a wild weekend.

Actually, how about tonight.

It all kicks off in La Grande and Elgin.

The Tigers host Baker at 7 p.m.

 

Hard Facts: Camp sets up at Eastern Oregon

Sorry it say it, but the smell of death lingered out from the football coach’s office last season at EOU.

A 1-10 season continually dumped fuel on the putrid fire.

What has Tim Camp brought to the program in the first half of his debut season at head coach — a lot of fresh air.

Anyone who’s gone to an EOU home game this year can see it. Better yet, they can feel it.
 

Grin and Barrett: BCS - The Big Cash Society

I’ll begin with a shocking statement: the University of Oregon football team still has a chance at this year’s national title.

I do not believe this, I have to have some credibility.

Following one of the worst Duck losses in the history of the program, I could not help but think of this humorously.

 

Grin and Barrett: ESPN Gameday where are you?

Chris Fowler, Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit should be in Imbler Friday. ESPN Classic needs to have cameras at the high school for this instant classic.

Head coach Rusty Eschler leads his undefeated Joseph team into powerhouse Imbler Friday.

 

Hard Facts: Trips to win

Joseph realized it had a decent hand to start the 2008 football season — even if others didn’t.

After losing three seniors that saw time, the Eagles were loaded with returners.

Sure, the loss of a Division I linebacker — Ben Garnett — hurt.  

 

Grin and Barrett: Crazy 8’s

When I first heard that there was eight-man football, I wasn’t sure what to think. I grew up in Florida and the closest thing we had to that was flag football on a Sunday.

As I mentioned in my introductory column, I went to a high school with 2,700 students.

I spent the last two weekends in North Powder and Cove and experienced true small town athletics for the first time.

 

Hard Facts: A potpourri of football

Potatoes, anybody?

Well you might want to think about it a little more seriously.

There may be something to the meat and potatoes diet. At least for high school kids that play football.

Over the last two seasons Eastern Oregon high school football teams are 1-9 against teams from Idaho. Our area teams have been outscored 391-158.
