  2. Sectional 27

    Anywho, I don't know too much about Marian. Although I've always snooped up on them with maxpreps when sectionals rolled around. There sectional runs are respectable. The only relatable information I know is their relationship with John Glenn. JGHS must have put up a fight for Marian to only put up 8 - 0. What kind of tactic does Marian run offensive and defensively? Key role players? Just to put this upfront, not anything against Marian, I'm hoping for a Jimtown and Knox championship, Knox to pound the ball in their guts for 48, since they clobbered us Junior year. In hopes of a first sectional championship victory Knox hasn't seen any Elkhart schools since 12/13'. Hendryx will be on his toes gearing up his tribe for the knights to travel to Community Field. Knox has had a stout defense and offense for the regular season, Pioneer was the real eye opener, anything can happen at this game, but I have faith my redskins will win through the sticks and stones. Knox 21 - 13
  3. Yet some believe it’s a mistake to start 21 or 22 kids at a young age. Especially if they are only practicing on that side of the ball all travel season. For example if you have a good athlete in 4 grade that only plays QB for the travel team, but you have a superstar 5th grade QB. Something will have to go wrong for that 4th grader to ever take a snap in high school. It may be limiting the 4th graders potential by not allowing him to learn a defensive position at a young age. Starting 21 or 22 at each grade level also reduces competition for spots. If kids know you are starting 22 out of 26 kids, then they feel entitled to that spot. I think you start your best kids, they learn both o and d positions and you have a good rotation planned out to get the others in. In high school when the classes come together, starting 22 kids is a huge advantage. Kids need to learn competition in practice because at the high school level with over 25 kids a class coming together, competition will be fierce to step on the field on Friday nights.

  6. NIC Teams 2nd Round Games

    What in tarnation is going on in Valparaiso? Valpo coach missing.....
  7. Some of.....(Not all) the GS fans make it very hard to root for that team. Everyone knows how good this team is this year, but the arrogance and down talking to other fans is ridiculous!
  8. Well, sorta... Keep in mind, this year's Linton team isn't quite at the same level talent-wise as the last five or six teams have been. In "previous years" I think the Miners would have fared pretty well... But yeah, you raised an interesting topic. And until this year there was no real basis for comparison at least in terms of head-to-head on the field competition.
  9. Although it was a definite upset, Wherler was also undefeated going into that game and ended up winning the sectional.
  10. Maybe not you personally, but it was implied. Either way sounded like excuses rather than giving credit where credit is due. Mute point anyway as it has no bearing on the upcoming game vs the Miners.

  12. About a play every 8 seconds or so. You explained it quite nicely. It’s a shame our friend from Jasper never gets to see it up close and personal...I know I would enjoy watching that. Think about practices as well...our kids have double the practice time at their position...and the number one offense and number one defense can be on the practice field at the same time getting reps. In 2015 I heard someone say that the best 3A game in the state was any time our #1 Offense was practicing against the #1 Defense. There is no argument against it. If you don’t have enough “football players”. Then your athetes must play both ways...it isnt a bad way to do things when you must...but it is out of necessity, not because it’s better. Another side effect is that so many kids play it strengthens the community involment and support. In most of our games this year we had around 50 kids get on the Varsity football field and play..that adds up to a whole lot of Grandmas and Grandpas and Aunts and Uncles etc. excited about the program.
  13. We received word today it is at USF at 7
  14. Yah but who is the new D coordinator for Lincoln now? Heard Heiden was pretty stubborn and wouldn't always take his assistants advice through the vine. And what's so hard to believe that Lincoln has a quality team again? They were pretty close to winning in the Jungle a few years back and that team beat GS on the road. I also heard this same talk about how unstoppable that GS team was back then.
  15. You quoted me, I never said anything about us being vanilla or not "giving our best shot"
  16. I've seen plenty of studs from Lincoln and surrounding schools have players go both ways and I didn't see it effecting their play. They were dominant regardless. I've seen kids at VL haul in 10 catches then turn around and playlock down DB for a whole game against quality opponents. Same with some local RBs who bruised then led the team in tackles. Case by case basis on that. When there's a lot going both ways that's when someone has a valid point. I think depth will be huge in this game. That'll it'll make the difference once we get to the second half assuming VL can keep it close. I am confident in saying this will be the best team GS has played all year to this date. I'm also pretty confident in saying VL has already played a team as good if not better than GS.
  17. Here is the thing about GS - their pace of play is unmatched by about anyone in high school football. They don't necessarily "ooze" athleticism at any particular skill position- a team can match up with them, but the question is for how long? If you have ANY players going both ways eventually it begins to wear on a team and those players...and before you know it they've put up 2 or 3 scores. Factor in the above paragraph- then factor in the fact that their DEFENSE is tough as nails - especially their run D. Makes it tough to sustain any drives and then you're in for a long night. They can be beaten, but I don't see it happening this Friday night. Maybe if Memorial doesn't have many 2 way guys it can get done. Otherwise they cruise till about semi-state.

  19. Hoosier Conference Pick 'Em Sectional Round 2

  20. I seem to remember an article published about mid-season quoting Coach Schnek himself about the importance of knocking off one of the "big 3" in the PAC conference - so to imply NP somehow played "vanilla" or didn't give it their best shot week 4 against the Raiders seems to be an easy-way-out type of argument. How about the Raiders just showed up and got the job done that particular week?? None of it really matters anyway this Friday as it's a new game and we know the Miners will be ready to play.
  21. Do Upsets Occur In The All-in Format?

    Just answering your premise. Don't care either way.
  22. Sectional 47

    Not sure where anyone really feels either game will be close. It'l be much the same as the first go around. The two clear cut favorites here will play next week for the sectional title.
  23. That issue had nothing to do with the contraction discussion. It was an internal personnel conflict.
  24. Seriously though, there should be some good sectional battles between these two for the next several years. Mishawaka is young and NP has some really nice athletes coming up too.
  25. It was discussed here on the GID that the program might end after the team voted to end the season roughly three years ago.
