October 28th 2011 will be a day of firsts.
Your Grandview Bobcats will be facing Liberty Union for the Mid State League, Cardinal Division Championship.
It will be the first time in the history of the known universe that the Grandview Bobcats will play for a regular season record of 10-0. And the first shot at an undefeated regular season since 1955.
"Good morning Grandview campers." was 9-0-1 in '79. That was the first year we played Liberty Onion and we won 40-6.(The tie was a 0-0 barn burner vs. W. Jeff.). Can anyone guess how many of those we've had since 1915?
As always it's byob & chair. I'll have cooler space and the large grill out. I'll do at least 40 Hotdogs. Fire pit will be going so bring 1 log from your pile if you have one and we will be good all night. Those of you more vulnerable to the fall chill should bring 2. Dress accordingly. This is a rain or shine event.
If anyone has particular requests or questions please contact me via text.
P.S. - If any of you multi-vehicle homes would like to park a vehicle on Fairview during the day that would be great. The more parking we control in front of and adjacent to my house, the better. It will be at a premium tomorrow night and we can move cars to improve the view or charge for parking.
And if you guessed 11 all time 0-0 ties you were right. Robin Priday, '55-'66, managed it twice. Both times to Urbana, in '57 and '65. He and Bill Brown hold the record for tenure as coach at 12 years.
Worst of all time you ask? None other than Harry Hauenstein. One win in two years, '74-'75.
