It's Week 9 (podcast, chat, stats)!

On Friday, area teams wrap up the regular season including the Coal Bucket and a doozy in Gibson City (where we love listening to the games on the radio over the speakers in downtown). 

On Saturday, the teams lucky enough to make the playoff cut find out their first-round opponent.

The Road to DeKalb — sounds funny doesn't it? — is about to begin.

Prep sports coordinator Fred Kroner, sports editor Jim Rossow and college football writer Bob Asmussen were all over the playoff picture in their weekly 25-minute podcast (listen here).

Also, feel free to grill Kroner about anything preps during his 12:30 p.m. Thursday chat by clicking here.

Finally, our weekly stats are available here.
