Look, I don't begrudge anyone for wanting to earn a living and provide for himself and his family. But look at his resume. There is no question that Mr Shields has compiled an outstanding won-loss record over the years -- but the way I look at it, that's not the issue at all. Where's the longevity? Heck... forget simply bringing a sense of stability to the young men that he had come…

QND would have been his sixth coaching stop in seven years. Now it's seven stops in seven years. He shouldn't have been given a second look, State championship or not.

Obama attacking a problem that doesn't exist. It's just another power grab by the tyrant Obama, whose sole goal is to destroy America. There is no climate change, there is no global warming, it's all a lie. You climate change alarmists are hypocrites if you aren't living in a cave and riding a bicycle. No, 2015 is not the warmest year on record but in fact there has been no warming…

WB6 votes against expansion; football merger in doubt

WB6 votes against expansion; football merger in doubt

1 year, 8 months ago From qconline.com

From From qconline.com:

Agreeing such a move would not be a good fit, Western Big 6 Conference officials earlier this week voted against an all-sports merger with the Peoria-based Mid-State 6 Conference.

Rock Island principal and Big 6 president Tim Wernentin confirmed on Thursday morning the conference will move forward with its current membership. Wernentin would not reveal the final voting total, but did say "it was a majority, not unanimous." League bylaws state such an action requires two-thirds majority.

Based on that, at least four schools were against expansion.

"Simply put, some of our schools felt that we could be at a competitive disadvantage at some areas," Wernentin said. "It has nothing to do with anything negative from the Peoria schools at all."

Closing the door on expansion will significantly impact the football-only agreement between the two leagues. Within the last year, they formed the Mid-West 10 Football Conference with the goal it would start this fall. However, there was no league this year since Peoria Manual could not break its contract with Eureka for the regular-season finale. Moline played Chicago Marist that week.

The football arrangement was created with the understanding the two leagues would talk about expanding in all sports. With expansion not happening, the football scheduling may not continue.
