    This argument drives me crazy. Columbus East doesn’t have super water to create these athletes. Part of being a great coach is to run a great program in all aspects and that’s what Gaddis does. Floyd Central has in the past had several big kids who start playing as Freshmen and aren’t there as Juniors and Seniors. Several transfer to play elsewhere or quit. I know what’s coming next is the “well it was too hard for them.” I’m not here to explain why they lose several every year but it’s not that simple. In my opinion if Gaddis has the same talent as the other team right now he’s still up 2 touchdowns on anyone in the HHC. It’s disrespectful and wrong to just say he wins every year because of better talent. That’s on the other schools. Figure it out and find a way to be competitive.

    Live webcast with Greg Rakestraw and Lance Scheib on the call will be shown here... https://www.iscsportsnetwork.com/videos/2018-ifca-north-south-football-game As for watered down, I have 2 comments on that. 1) My oldest son was at Illinois State for summer school and summer conditioning after his senior year. He asked Coach Spack if he could go to the North-South week/game and he encouraged it. I realize Illinois State is not Ohio State, but I'm not sure how many of those top players WANT to play in it, or even ASK if they can. Obviously, there is some concern by the colleges of injury, which is understandable. 2) I personally choose not to focus on who is NOT there, rather attend and celebrate the kids who ARE there! They have all earned it, let them enjoy the moment, and just go support them! Other than the storm delayed shortened game in 2015, I have not heard of a player comment on a negative experience ever. It's a great week to be part of regardless if some top players are not there. Also, remember, this All-Star game is a representative All-Star game, meaning it's not just the best players period. It's the best players with respect to region, school, class, and position. So chances are you would never have the top 30 players in the state make the rosters even if they could play.

    Sounds like Coach Getts, who has a blue collar work ethic ( 2 sectional titles at Belmont) couldn't get the rest of the staff on board. There are certain elements required to compete at championship level. From Admins down to families, all must share the same vision for success. Wish Coach Getts a very restful fall!! Hopefully he gets scooped up again!!

    you are thinking of Hudson who never played at LCC, his brother just graduated and was a 4 year starter at LCC, but his older brother never played HS ball in Indiana. Dad was former DC under Hazel. If Jack played in MIC (and he would be a starter on every team in the state of Indiana regardless of the name on the front of the Jersey) there would be ZERO discussions of is ND offer and subsequent verbal commitment to play for the Irish.

    Yeah, but that’s too much of a hike to take on if the DAC is option. I think they need each other. The thought of going independent for football may sound intriguing, but that’s a scheduling nightmare for the AD. The DAC needs Penn to remind them how to play football. Maybe Penn winning the Duneland every year would put a fire into the bellies of some of those dormant programs.

    I think everyone is just going by what the article said. Pretty much about the assistant coaches not the players. No need to prove it. Getts has a proven track record. I'm pretty sure there are a few here that could say what went down. As a fan do you know, or what you were told? I'm pretty sure Coach Getts will coach again. No desire to retire from what I was told. As far as proving it, I'm pretty sure Coach Getts has plenty of text messages from the players to prove whose a fool.

    Think Penn would do well to win 1 of the 4 games . But win or lose , it will be a win for Penn because they get to see MIC caliber talent(or better) early in the year .

    Unfortunately times have changed. Coaches getting to stay at a school for long durations won't be as common as the past. Parents/schools, whomever may be at fault do not support coaches as in the past. Yes, there are still some that do but as those long time coaches retire you start to see the turnovers. Another concern is the long time coaches who have had no parental issues for many year-- are now being accused of this or that. Times have come that schools will insist coaches coach the parents, not the players. Some of you will understand what I mean. When coaches are told whom to play or not play, when they can hold weights/practices etc., it makes the coaching professional life short lived and tough.

    Using this article shows how little you understand Michigan. This article states a 53 team drop in 11-man teams in roughly a five year span. (Article written in ‘16) That is a statiscaly accurate statement. But the key part of that statement is “11-man”. In that same time span Michigan implemented 8 man football. Guess how many teams were playing 8 man in ‘16..... 52. For a whopping net loss of.....1 football playing school. It also stated a loss of over 4,000 in participation in 11-man We can safely assume at least 50% were playing 8-man Making Michigan’s stop in participation nothing to get excited about. When you factor in population decline/stagnation in that window of time, it’s barely worth mentioning. Luckily football coaching hasn’t fallen as far as journalism has.

    If you are going to call people racist, please actually understand the terms you use. Maybe you meant "inherent" racism or even "institutional" racism, but internalized racism would mean the Evans brothers are racist against other African Americans. Regardless of what type of racism you are acussing these folks of, I think the real problem people have with this family is with the lack of accountability. They try to run from the consequences of their actions rather than facing punishment and learning from their mistakes.

    Picture for the cover of courier and press football preview had QB theme. Weitop from Reitz is in the picture. Any truth to rumor he’s not playing QB this year? Not sure why the courier and press wouldn’t just pick the best senior players in area for the cover every year. Combs kid is the best football player in SW Indiana and it’s not close.

    Statmurp, I'm very familiar with the SAC and history. Grew up in FWA and attended Snider. I have made statements about splitting SAC into 2 divisions of 5, each team plays 4 teams in their division, have a yearly "rival cross over game" and then play one or two other out of division game, or a 2 year rotation of two teams from other division. Then at end of year have a seeded set of games for 1st, 3rd,, 5th, etc. That is seven or eight in conference games, leaving teams the ability to schedule a OOC "out of conference" game or two. Maybe I'm just "near sighted" in thinking of only Snider, Dwenger and Luers, but those are usually the teams from the SAC that make yearly runs on the postseason. Adding Homestead has been a good addition along with Carroll, but those two teams are usually playing for 3 to 4th place in conference it seems. I could see the two divisons being something like this: Snider Homestead Luers South Side Northrop Dweneger Carroll Wayne North Side Concordia Or Better yet, add New Haven and Leo to SAC and have 5 divison games, 1 yearly rival cross over, and then seeded tourney on week 9, leaving room for 2 or 1 (if you play another out of division game ) OCC games. If you like my idea, please vote me in as next commissioner of the SAC conference

    Just thinking out load. When we the SAC, if ever, scale back league play so teams can play out of conference calls. It was announced this week, or last, that Penn has scheduled a 4 year match up with St. Xavier, three time Ohio state champ. Penn has also scheduled Homewood Floosmoor in 2019 (IL power) and Indy Cathedral in a year or two. Those are some big time match ups. I'm thinking more and more that teams like Snider, Dwenger and Luers loose alot when having to play all leagues games, not prepared for deep runs in post season. JMO.

    Others can add and subtract to this list--and I'm too lazy to look these schools up to confirm, but: Indiana schools in the last 50 years that have dropped football: 2 total--Hamilton ('80's), Morristown (added & dropped in the 80's)----Hanover Central (70's dropped, now readded), Scottsburg (70's dropped, now readded) Indiana schools that have added football in the last 20 years: 20 total--Anderson Prep, Boone Grove, Bowman, Covenant Christian, Crawford County, Eastern Greene, Eastern Pekin, Guerin, Heritage Christian, Lutheran, Tindley, Lighthouse East, Monroe Central, Oldenburg, Rock Creek, Silver Creek, Switzerland County, Traders Point, Trinity Lutheran, Wheeler----Scottsburg and Hanover make 22 if you want to count them. 25 if you want Attucks, Shortridge, and Washington, but those may not be fair since they closed and have added football since re-opening.

    Honestly I can't see that kind of situation working anymore for it did for Stewart. I give that staff credit though they had the big season in which we tied for 1st but lost to a good Hobart team in the 1st round of sectionals. I would love for us to get our own coach Meeks like Rensselaer, someone willing up embrace the job and install a system that will hold up for a decade or more. He does a great job at coordinating the program from youth on up. That's pretty much the wish list for any struggling program I'm sure. It usually always pays dividends when a coach invests in the youth program.

    Pass for a 48 yard TD, or a run play for 48 yard TD. Coach Berry is in a tough place, because if he doesn't throw, he doesn't get to throw much at all because he is up by so much!

    You should probably ask Chatard and Memorial about the level of play that comes from GS the past 7 years or so despite being in a “weak” conference, or anyone in 2A about Southridge, or maybe talk to folks about Heritage Hils in the 2000’s. I had some respect for your Football insight until today. You obviously know little to nothing about Football here in Southwest Indiana. And, as much as it pains me to say this, WhoDat is spot on about the Evans kids.

    Exactly! I ran the high school radio station at Pendleton Heights for over 10 years. Started there with an income stream of $500/year school funding and my salary with 8 students. After developing a sponsorship program that included selling time on sports events and making ourselves known in the community, I had 16 seniors in my final year with over 10% of the school in one of my media classes that year (130+), winning National Radio School of the Year, and bringing in nearly $25,000 per year - including large deals with the Indianapolis Indians, Penske car dealerships, and a ton locally. Effort = success. Now I have a 5-time Emmy award winning sports documentary producer and many other successful former students. I bet A LOT of people said we were wasting money buying a $2,500 tent with our logo plastered all over it. It was from sponsorship and has produced many successful students that got interested in advertising and promotions industries. I absolutely can not stand people telling schools how to spend money - they know their students. That's one reason I don't teach anymore (that and salary and parents).

    The head injury issue obviously comes into play, there's no denying that. I don't think we can lay all the blame on that doorstep. I think there are other factors involved. Football is hard, there's work involved, there's discipline involved, as our society becomes less and less rigid when it comes to behaviors, adherence to rules/laws, the "it's all about me" attitude in general, that's not real conducive to Football. I "think" (my opinion) societal changes in general are more of a factor than anything else. The concussion data merely makes for a convenient excuse. I think the NF as well as the NFCA have done a great job of getting out in front of some of these issues. For the kids who are opting out, it's their loss, the game will ultimately survive, at least in the foreseeable future.

    According to the article an elementary school project came in under budget. Approximately 900K and the school system elected to spend the money on lighted signs and the new jumbotron. It is my understanding that in Indiana, capital project funds don't come from the state, I don't pay taxes in Johnson County, none of my business what they do. Per the article, they have not decided on advertising yet, but it was a "discussion that would be had".
