Heard wrong? That's how the radio announcer said it. Martin from SW went down with cramps in the third, and two of Galena's, including the Decker kid. Yeah, not as bad as in D-ton but it was also 5 hrs later. Didn't sound to me that SW had any business losing it on the last play either, w/o Martin it was over long before that...

I don't think its a mutual decision when one coach walks onto the field and says we're done.

I guess you must have been on the field when that happened defense wins. Did you just observe or did you talk to the coaches? I did talk to the coaches. I'd also like to know what game you played in that had a higher humidity with no wind. I've been at a lot of games in SW Wisconsin over the years and don't remember a game as brutal as this.

True, there were some water breaks, but most of the breaks were because someone was down. I know that many of the Platteville kids had been eating bananas, most had OJ (it works like bananas) for breakfast (at least were advised to), and did drink a lot of water.

Can we stop talking about this now? In order to properly hidrate a player must start the night before by drinking plenty of fluids, or like we say, til you pee clear. Humidity is humidity. It has been a lot hotter and humid in practices this year than it was in the games on Friday. It is due to a lack of proper hydration that this happened whether you want to admit it or not. You can't be reactive, which is what it sounds like happened. You can't start drinking water and gatorade 2 hours prior and pickle juice during the game to try to stop it from happening. You have to prepare a day ahead. It's done, the games over. Enough of the excuses just move on to next week. Whether or not they stopped the game or not, Darlington wasn't going to come back. They did it for safeties sake. We all know the game was over anyway. Why add injury to the throttling as well. It was the best decision on the part of the coaching staffs whether it was 1-sided or not. Glad to see we are starting the petty arguing already in Week 1.

I thought the officials did a good job at D-ton, they gave extra breaks. Personally, I've been apart of other games in WI that were much hotter and higher humidity. But maybe.....Darlington should play their games at night like everyone else...seems fitting I guess. and Pioneer Fan, I don't think its a mutual decision when one coach walks onto the field and says we're done.
