      Corrupt files   07/26/2017

      The server files for the forum were lost early in the morning 26,July 2017.   I restored the forum but using a fresh install of the forum software but we lost all of the images stored on the server. The way I see it... no big deal as it gives us a fresh start.   Over the next couple days I will restore the images I have saved for the forum. but I do not have everyone personal image. You can easily restore that yourself. Any pictures shared in a post that were stored here are also gone... again a fresh start of no clutter.    I just wanted to let you know what was going on. This will display until 1, Sept 2017.

    I thought you were telling us all how the PAC was trash. Now you wanna jump on the HH bandwagon. Quite honestly I'm much more impressed with HH than Memorial. They only get to pull from little ole Spencer County, and have put several players in the league. You however have got to pull kids from Evansville, Newburgh, and Henderson, and those teams in the 80's and early 90's prospered when you had all the Robbie Kent booster money.

    Not sure if this is reference to EMD , HH or both but this is just one fans prospective on the HH equation. Prior to 1996 we won our share of games but couldn't get past Memorial in sectional and sort of like Gibson did we started the tackle football youth program and made other changes then we won back-to-back sectional and a regional but those seasons we lost close games to State Champions losing to Zionsville by a point on overtime and losing by 3 points to Bishop Chatard in a odd regional matchup with Chatard then in 2000 we reached the hard work and dedication to continued improvement from the coaches and paid off with a state title . 98 and 99 we lost in sectional but the 1998 season was a start of a special run for Heritage Hills that included 59 straight regular season wins, 11 straight PAC titles, 6 straight sectional titles, 6 straight regional titles , 2 semi state titles and that 15-0 season, For a 3A public school that's a special run at one time we were the only 3A school to beat Chatard and Roncalli in the tourney and it was a special time. after a run like that its hard to not decline somewhat but still from 2006-2015 we have 4 conference titles, 4 sectional titles and 2 regionals the last coming as recently as 2014 and a majority of the teams in the state would be thrilled to have done what we have the last decade even if it was a big decline from the previous decade. To go from worst record in school history to semi state in a year you have to have tradition and pride in your program and all Patriots are proud of the tradition and 2014 told the critics that we wont fall off the face of the earth after coach Clayton like so many on here predicted and that's part of what was so sweet about 2014 after all the we told you so's after 2013. The past might not mean anything as far as wins and losses for the current season but programs that have TRADITION are proud of that tradition. Gibson is building their own tradition now and if it continues 5-10 years down the road I'm sure you guys will be just as proud of these past 5 years that formed that winning tradition..

    I would like to add my input as well........like gowesdel said above, as a whole I think the PAC is a better conference top to bottom this year. But I also think the SIAC top to bottom is better as well. Which I would hope means a better class of football with games not so lopsided. As to the reference of this so called "terrible" Jasper team. I think we must put it in perspective........Jasper had owned Memorial for a long time, therefore I think they went into game one thinking the status quo..........we all know that output. Fast forward to week two and week four, those opponents to Jasper are close in proximity and highlighted every year as "want to win at all cost" games. Consequently they are played with great effort and energy. Yes SR and HH won close games, but they were hard fought games as well. Please keep one thing in perspective ATTC, there are some Titan fans that think football didn't exist until 2012 and anything before that was folly. Furthermore any team that they play is unbelievably talented. But in the end they (GS) are just THAT good. Like Princeton for example last week.......all week long the talk was GS in a blow out.......... but the next morning after a close halftime score......the GS faithful were claiming that the Tigers were so amazingly athletic blah blah. blah. In the end I think these two sectionals, 31 and 32, could be very competitive with some "can't miss" kind of games. It will be fun to see who meets up in the regional finals. PS Don't be a fool

    You are right none of this does until Thanksgiving weekend!! That when a champion is crowned. Some of us on here know exactly what that feels like, and what it feels like to lose that one too. Even though it was before 2012.......I think we should refer to that from now on as football BG!! Ya know like BC is "before christ", this will be in football terms BG, "Before Gibson"!!!

    The bartender at Bernies told me that he heard from the waitress,who heard from the local farmer, who heard from the cow, who heard from the chicken, who heard from the great granddaughter of Charlotte from Charlotte's web, that only one player got a P.F. and only one player was ejected. But I could be wrong.

    Off topic but as far as Jasper they are real young and their first 5 games were against teams with a combined record of 20-4 so the Cats could possibly be better then some people think.

    Captain Obvious here - but I think we'll know a whole lot more about the relative strength of the top 3 Sagarin teams in 32 this week. HH @ GS Jasper @ Princeton Reitz @ Memorial I could see 3-0 just as much as I could see 0-3.

    Seriously,HH is a well coached determined team with plenty of community backing. Always a recipe for success. Something we have worked hard to mimic for the last decade. I believe our boys are well coached and determined as well. This game seems pretty simple to me. HH will most likely try to control time of possession, force GS into errors in the passing game, and salt in an unforeseen play of some kind. GS needs to take care of the ball and get the HH offens off the field. Whomever enforces their will on the other has the best chance.

    You know it is a shame that the PAC is pretty weak once you get past the top three teams. I don't think you can find many people from Gibson Southern that don't wish we had a schedule more similar to yours. I think that's why we try to pick up Evansville teams when we have a chance with our younger groups. Fact is pretty sure we would have been much more competitive than you in your conference the last 3 years, and we don't expect that to change much in the future.

    That 2010 game is another example of how comparing scores often fails that Gibson Southern team only won 2 conference games beating last place Pike Central and 1st place Heritage Hills, Patriots were 6-0 and Titans 1-5 VS. common opponents yet Titans won the head to head.

    Both. Our first regional title was year 11 of the youth program. We are strong down through 5th grade (actually down farther but those kids haven't played outside the league yet.). Hart and staff are amazing.

    Only 7 teams from siac would be 5-0 playing the teams GS has played. All 7 would most likely finish 9-0. You have no clue!! Your schedule is cupcake city except for the team that owns you and Southridge. Both of whom struggled vs Jasper.

    I remember back when we were in middle school. The majority of us South Gibson kids were Catholic, yet the only one receiving calls daily to attend Memorial was a star pitcher with Major League talent. He even had a "recruiting" visit to Memorial. It was interesting that the valedictorian in the class didn't receive one call. It must have been nice to pull from 5 counties in 2 states. Oh and I prefer the time period AC.

    Yes it is exactly how teams scout. They watch tons of film. The coaches go watch teams live if possible. They contact coaches. They develop game plans. They practice. They watch more film. They even go as far as putting motivational messages on bulletin boards and lockers. Sometimes even circle calendar dates! AND yes you never said that GS would beat HH, that is correct. But where you are misinformed is the fact that you would make a comment about athletes from different schools, publicly, online based solely on video. Again I ask you 1. Were there kids hurt you didn't see on video? 2. Was there inclimate weather to affect the athleticism of said players. 3. Was someone ill? 4. Before the video did the athletes line up and run timed 40s, or bench press 225 lbs as many times as possible, etc. for a more conclusive answer Therefore I consider it a dumb statement. Better yet, comparison. AND I don't need to see Princeton play this year, I didn't make the statement. PS I learned my lesson from Titan20 this year. Crow tastes awful

    I'm pretty sure we are about the next team to move up due to enrollment. If I'm not mistaken, we were very close last time. Yeah we still have this year to finish and another semi-state win would push Linton to 2A through the success factor. Health is a big deal especially for the smaller programs. Just ask North Vermillion and Springs Valley. Both of those teams have had a TON of injuries this year (knock on wood). I always hate to see the kids get hurt. It is really sad when it is a senior. They don't get another year. Underclassmen can always come back next year. I can't speak for everyone, but I feel most Linton fans are knowledgeable about football and are good sports at least the ones on the GID. We like a little banter here and there too. Makes things more fun.

    Mikey Kidwell : He absolutely should be involved in the conversation without hesitation. Indy Star had him on the pre season watch list for reason. Opened up week 1 vs Tri West 30-54 575 7 tds. got his 8th on the ground. This past week, we had him for 20-30, 296 I think and a couple of TDs. http://www.maxpreps.com/athlete/mikey-kidwell/qvOyyxWCEeOZ5AAmVebBJg/gendersport/football-stats.htm Also is one whale of a PUNTER as well

    I asked that in 1A thread few days ago. Didn't know if enrollment was going to push you guys up or.not. As I said last year I'll be rooting for yOU guys in every game.but 1 if we are fortunate enough to meet again. You guys are always fun to read/chat with and are always a force. Southern 1A will be crazy open next year it seems pending who moves down. But we still got.this year. Stay healthy out there gents.

    North Knox lost that Sullivan game near the end. Dunno know how the Eastern game went down. Last week against North Central Fields and Ballew each had 200+ yards and 4 TD's each. I remember Fields from last year. It would appear that North Knox has a tandem to recon with this year and the Miner coaching staff has their work cut out for them next week. This week? Not so much. I would imagine just coming out of the game healthy is a priority. The final score is a moot point. Which leads me to ask: what's happened to North Daviess' football program? At this point it looks like Springs Valley might be the only game they have a chance to win this season. Is it their numbers are down? Injuries? Seems like they haven't been very good the past couple of years. Rather surprising as there were some years they made some noise in the sectional and were usually a tough out. I was wondering if it would be one of those two. 40 has Mater Dei in it who usually has a say in who wins that sectional.

    Other options are clearly Circle City Conference, North Central conference, or go Independent. What would 21 Banners do as School AD/Leader for LCC? Especially since those involved within the youth programs are saying that the current middle school group is struggling.

    HAHAHA, stop... Where did a Columbus North coach call East soft and laugh? Ironic because East was leading until about 2 minutes left in the 3rd. I watched some of the highlights of the Castle - NA game, looks like Castle had all they could handle on the lines... Pretty weak in my opinion. As for BHSS, I won't comment because I didn't see them play. All I know is we were pretty equal with New Pal, and Castle had a cakewalk only to be way overpowered by a New Pal team. Again, congrats on your big win over New Albany, truly a dominating team you have. Let them whine, they have a few problems down in "Paradise"

    Muledriver New to the forum. I wanted to respond to your Aug 6 remark on Mrtvl Artesian 2016 football prospectus. Losing to Franklin was one of our only shots this season. I thought we might have a chance against Mooresville until they tied with Greenwood a couple weeks ago, and as you know, Greenwood put it to us. This year is a total rebuild year with almost half the varsity being sophomores. My son is a sophomore whose grade won the conference in eight grade and beat Southport in a travel tournament with the freshman class also at the top of the conference the last two years. The current sophomore class and freshman class have a ton of potential coming up provided the football program can retain the players until their junior and senior years. The program is having a tough time retaining seniors for multiple reasons. These last two varsity seasons have been devastating and demoralizing to players, parents and the community. We have a relatively new coach staff and a new AD at MHS with minimum senior player participation. This has to be rectified. I'm not sure if it is just a cycle or goes deeper. I can't speak for last year but this season we have a lot of 15-16 yr old competing with 17-18 yr olds. That is tough any program let alone 5A. The concern from the parents at freshman and sophomore level is extremely high given some of the talent coming up. We have a great opportunity in the next two years if the program can function in the best interest of the team/program and not in the best interest of individuals. On another note, the players no longer run up the hill at Jimmy Nash park...........

    I can't speak for all Castle fans, but I left early Sat morning & drove to Fishers for Coach Lidy's Memorial Service, didn't return until late. I never get on here on weekends, I don't have it on my phone & would rather enjoy family/friends. Coach Lidy used to always say "it's never as good as it seems & it's never as bad as it seems". I was disappointed Friday night but still think Castle will be fine by playoffs. Castle came out flat for some reason, Central won, Castle had it's chances. Personally I'm not going to spend a lot of time worrying about last week, we have a tough game at Mater Dei, never easy to win at the Bowl & especially against a Goebel coached team.

    Well its about time we won 1. Heck of a game by both teams. Might see a round 2 if both teams can make it to semi-state. (No i am not discounting Center Grove because they are gonna be a force to be dealt with for the Warriors.)

    I haven't seen a North Daviess fan on here all season, so I don't expect much from them. Linton fans know this game is only worth mentioning because of last year's debacle and subsequent forfeit. The Miner coaching staff showed class in that situation and I'm sure they will show the same class Friday night by pulling the starters in the first half to not make this 96-0. Show up, play hard and execute for the few plays you are in and stay healthy. That's all that really needs to be said IMO

    Will the trend for GS being a very good team continue? I know since Coach Hart has been there the team has been good. Is that a coach thing or is it that the youth program had gotten better years ago and those kids finally made it to the Varsity level? If that makes sense? or what is it?

    "Commonly" used by whom? If at least 2 of us haven't heard of it, evidently it's not as common as you think. Veiled insults aren't very effective if you have to explain it. Only problem is, when you did explain it, we don't understand that either. Are you a slap when it comes to grammar? Asking for a friend.

    I don't have to "see Castles score against New Pal." I sat there in the snow. I watched the game, so I don't need you coming to rub my nose in it again on two different threads... in relation to the performance of a completely different team. Shady. By the way, what was your score in last year's semi-state? Oh, that's right. Hater. Oh, and hey... congrats on your big win. We're all very proud of you.
