    Let's be honest, we've seen much bigger upsets, ask bones.

    I can't see Phillips winning. I don't even know what either has back. I got LA by 2 scores. Maybe I'll come back and revise once the color and color scrimmages take place, but I don't know.

    Don't count out Phillips. The QB is crazy athletic and the skill players can flat out play. Only concern is the O line. What is back is the question

    They have a punchers chance but I'll say LA 35-21. They will come out strong with their athleticism but they will tire out and run out of gas in the second half

    LA wins by 3 TD's the game will never be in question.

    Maybe the top end talent at Phillips is better then the top end at LA but once you get to kids 3-20 the the talent gap will slide heavily to LA.

    The Illini divisions are by enrollment; also why not ask Simeon and Curie to drop the North Side tomato cans and play MP, Hubbard, Phillips etc

    If history tells us anything, special teams disparities that may exist between the 2 programs can not be ignored. I vaguely remember such being a factor in the Johnsburg playoff win against Phillips last fall.

    Saw some of the Phillips kids at the Lake Forest camp and had a chance to briefly speak to them. They are super pumped up for this game. Not only do they truly believe that they will win, but they don't think it'll be a close game. The will to win matters, many times more often than skill. Ask Maine South about that in the final game. If LA matches the desire and the motivation and avoids mental mistakes in that complicated defensive scheme, they'll be fine. Hopefully for them they remember the final game against Maine South as a tool for the motivation and fire they'll surely need and that its not always about the talent.

    LA graduated a lot of studs on both sides of the ball. Coach Holocek does not prefer to play his players both ways. It'll be interesting how they reload.

    I don't think people are questioning Phillips skill, but I may be mistaken. But I agree somewhat with @ClownBaby that LA will be better at more positions, most importantly along the lines.

    That said I think they'll compete.
