    I've known many of students who would not have graduated high school if they didn't participate in extracurricular activities. It's what kept them going. They may have only gotten C's but at least they graduated. However you want to spin-it bobref, take away funding for those activities and facilities, which leads to these activities being abolished, and see what happens.......the "core academic mission" the school is charged with providing will take a step backward.......

    Did you know that it's a proven fact that kids that participate in extracurricular activities get better grades than those who don't? Why wouldn't tax payer money be used to promote all facilities that make up the educational process or at least help it? Whether it be the library, weight room, auditorium, band room, gym, or football field?

    With the way the Summer rules are set, there are opportunities to get the looks you want to see in full 11 on 11 competition. We have been going to St. Francis for several years now. While there is a 7 on 7 segment, there is also an inside run period and a full 11 on 11. Last year, there were 6 teams. While that may be overkill, it still gives you the full look of a variety of offenses. My issue with 7 on 7 is with the club teams that travel. They are not coached by high school coaches and in a lot of cases (at least what we see in this area) is that there is no coaching experience, AND they are running systems that we do not run. Read progressions are different as well, and "coaches" are "tweaking" techniques, counter to what they are being told in our program. I have a friend who would argue with me about how a certain club here in the area would get kids exposure that the high school could not; traveling to Georgia and Florida, etc. I then asked, how many scholarships are being offered to kids that compete there? How many of the top recruits in the Southern states are even competing in these tournaments? Now, a clear sign that this type of thing is out of control; a college coach calls asking about a kid he had seen on film from these. The high school coach could not remember the player. Turns out, the kid was never eligible to compete on the high school team. The coaches are going to the facilities that are training these kids BEFORE they are going to the high schools, or before they even talk to the high school coaches; and the communication between the facility "trainers" and the high school coaches is non existent. Bottom line is that it is all about the money, and to make matters worse, the paying clients are being told that kids are definitely scholarship players; and when they see no offers come, guess who gets blamed?

    Both schools have tremendous coaching. The Dude wouldn't be surprised if these games are close and on the other hand the Dude wouldn't be the least bit surprised if CG ends up out matching NP as well. Good to see this series happen. Good for IHSAA football.

    I didn't read all of it but I think it states that "if a team wins conference in prior year and returns nearly all their starters, said team cannot add a all conference transfer from similar conference."

    Game is still over a year away so hard to judge what kind of matchup we'll see. Just glad to see it happen instead of debating what could happen if they played.

    7 on 7 is very important in my opinion. Your teams offense may not run a spread or a RPO offense. They may even be a run oriented team where 80% or more they run the ball. it's hard for your teams defense to under stand route combinations or RPO's unless they complete in 7 on 7's with teams that do. As much as your offense tries to give you a look at teams that run them the speed and accuracy is hard to duplicate. It helps you as a coach to understand where your team needs extra help.

    Similar in size of school (Mishawaka would be the 5th 4A school of 8 schools in the NLC). Similar in that they're a "one horse" town school (I.e Warsaw, Plymouth, Goshen) with a very good following. Similar in competitiveness as the NLC across the board in all sports.

    What happens when Elkhart consolidates and the NLC is left with 7 teams? What is the next step? 1. Who does the NLC proactively go after? Remember, the NLC by-laws state that each school must participate in all recognized sports. 2. Is there a chance the NLC disintegrates because there may be a push to form another conference poaching teams like Warsaw, Goshen, and Concord? 3. Is there a chance of forming a mega conference between the NIC and NLC with large and small school divisions? 4. Does the NLC continue on like it had in the past with 7 teams until someone comes along like Memorial and applies for membership? There are rumors the former NSC schools are not happy in the NIC...maybe one of them will apply? Interesting food for thought. The consolidation is coming and it will affect a lot of schools in one way or another.

    Poorly written queries were causing MySQL to crash. There were other issue but they were related to the above. Long queries were being logged and the hard drive filled to 100% which locked the machine up trying to ready and write to a full drive. I think I have things resolved but anything can happen.

    Speer's has a history of denying transfers to ANY SIAC school. Funny how quickly he welcomed Hedgepath & Harvey from North, Stewart from Bosse, Shoulders from Memorial, along with McBride & Welder from Castle. Those were some key players for their 2015 Sectional Championship team.

    No...however, there was a time where we did lose baseball players to Memorial. The problem back in the day was that some of our better football players didn't play football in some cases. I like "Gibson Memorial Dei"

    Maddox, Lopez, Buse, Rea, Heeke,and Newton all are playing... picked up their Equip for the summer workouts. Add The 6-1 240lb Doyle to the mix at line or DE. Good size, very athletic, above avg line speed... there are some options to move some of these guys around... so where they will play is yet a mystery. We should have a fr team... approx 18-20 picked up equip. The frosh will take their lumps... I wouldn't play them at the JV level...size wise not ready! We did lose 7-10 in the younger ranks (9-10 gr)... Whoever said HH has less than 40 for the varsity is a bit shy on the guess... rumors are just that... rumors. All of the key players that we expected back are there! No surprises. I hope we are over looked this year... that will make it sweeter when a few opponents are left scratching their heads when the game clock hits 00:00! Line play . If we remain healthy, build on what we had last year, figure in the outstanding incoming soph class... HH will be just fine. A lot of young players but very skillful . Look forward to Yeager, Redman, and Rodgers in the backfield.

    Maybe, but from what I have seen the last few years GS makes the difference in the weight room, and with food. If anything impresses me about your program, it is that you are obviously getting your kids to understand the importance of not only the weight room but eating and eating right. From being a freshman to being a senior--that will make all the difference in the world.

    The more I think about doing it this way with out the regional game I like it. It would give you all kinds of different matchups and new place to go play the games. The only thing I see that would be a draw back for some AD's and coachs is that now they can say that they had a good season and won their sectional. In doing a way with sectionals they is gone.

    In the 'I know this would never happen' category, 6A would be the perfect chance to seed the whole darn thing. Or at least seed 1-16 north and south. A majority of the schools are clustered around Indy anyway. Factor in a bye week to start (round 1 for 1A-5A) and why not? After week 9, teams are seeded and have 2 weeks to prepare. At worst, with the above scenario, Avon/Jeffersonville gives you a 2 hr bus trip down 65. That is still better travel distances than some blind draw pairings for lower classes. But most will be of the Southport vs Franklin Central or Perry Meridian vs Center Grove variety. it will never happen. But logically I think 6A would set up nicely that way.

    As an alumnus of SJC i am thoroughly disgusted and heart broken that the school is suspending operations (It is most likely closing because there is no way they will raise $ 130 million in 2 years. The past 5 years has been totally mismanaged and the Board of Trustees did nothing to help find a solution. Not once did the alumni get a letter stating the sad state of affairs. I believe the C.PP.S. who sponsored the school want to close it and sell it to someone. Almosst 40 years to the day the Administration Building burned down the school is closing. But I am a Puma for life.

    No. I believe the core mission of a government school is to provide an education and anything they can do to help the student be successful in the classroom (whether it be a nice new computer lab, or a new football field) should be a priority. It ultimately benefits society when a child is successful (for some students, success means a "C", for others, it may mean an "A"). Really a pretty simple concept Muda (aka spin-doctor). I never came close to saying I thought the core mission of a school was simply to provide extracurricular activities for all prospective students. You're worse than the major news networks.......

    Any word on any assistants coach white is bringing onto his staff? His staff is very young and inexperienced. It is just him and his two boys. With all the success the jays have had over the years, there has to be some old time players that could help out.
