  1. Freshman football is more about keeping attrition at a minimum after middle school. It's important to keep the morale of a class together... Keep that core of 15 or so players playing together so they will have chemistry as seniors. Freshmen vs Sophomore scrimmages were the most intense and hard hitting practices and only occurred once a week.
  2. I'll be visiting home around mid October, hopefully I can make it to a game. I would watch or listen, I'm 7-8 hours ahead here, so that's not possible. I need to bribe someone for a Hudl login. Lol
  3. The late Tom Goldsberry ran the conditioning program at Heritage Hills. Mundy took that role when Goldsberry retired after the 2001 season. Mundy knew his stuff and was a huge reason why Heritage Hills produced so many strong and agile players from 2000 until he left (around 2009?) to go teach for the US armed forces in Korea and now Bahrain. There are many socioeconomic factors that have changed in the area, as well. But I'm happy to see Heritage Hills is addressing the need for an experienced strength coach, who will likely benefit all athletes especially in track and football.
  4. I'm curious as to why you would take the argument in that direction. Why not argue vouchers become private funds once they are redeemed by parents?
  5. Lifting was always supervised by a coach.
  6. Academically, high school wasn't very challenging for me...I didn't have straight As, but I never really had to study if I paid attention in class. I can only imagine it has gotten even less challenging with the advent of the 5.0-grading scale, expanded standardized testing and common core. For example, I took AP English, AP Calculus and AP Physics my senior year, but because my high school didn't get its courses accredited through an Indiana college, none of those credits transferred to IU. I took English 101 at Vincennes University Jasper Campus during the summer following my senior year, so I wouldn't have to take it at IU. If I could've graduated early and taken four core classes at VUJC during the Spring Semester, I may have considered it. It also varies high school-to-high school -- many students coming from larger high schools (like my cousin, who attended North Central) had more than 30 college credits when she graduated high school. That translates to $18,000 in room, board and tuition at IU. I think there is a maturity argument to be had. I wouldn't have been mature enough at 17 to live on my own in Bloomington (not that I was any more mature at 18 ).
  7. State associations (i.e. IHSAA) typically adhere to the NFHS rules. Some states like Texas, I believe, adopted the NCAA rules. I like the fact that good kicking is rewarded.
  8. The top 87 teams in FBS get at least 20 yards per kickoff return: http://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/fbs/current/team/96/p2 I realize that's not exactly what you're asking.
  9. Can't even see Harrell's board until you register. And our forum software (Invision Power Boards) doesn't cost thousands of dollars per year. What costs is owning our own server (computer) and its requisite bandwidth. People love to complain about our model, but it has worked.

  11. I guess it's all about how you define cut blocks. When I was a player, if the play called for a cut block (mostly short pass plays), we were to aim above the knees ... not for the actual knee caps. I don't think most knee injuries occur from cut blocks between offensive and defensive linemen (no matter how low you go). I think knee injuries happen when linebackers cut fullbacks and running backs or pulling guards get cut on trap plays or when cut blocks come from the side (reach blocks) on sweeps.
  12. Mount Vernon (Fortville) had a kicker about 15 years ago who could kick the ball right into the ground and make it pop about 40 feet into the air. They did this on every kickoff and I think successfully recovered about 50% of the time. I think, especially in high school, having possession is more important than field position. Often when a team scores in high school, it comes off of a very long play ... teams don't drive the ball 15 plays, 80 yards. Even on long drives there is usually a long play, so in my opinion the probability of an offense scoring from the 50 or (-25) isn't statistically that different. I have to statistics to back this up. Just observation
  13. I definitely saw teams appear to abuse the PI enforcement ... not necessarily in the red zone, but when DBs were trying to defend a faster wideout, realized they were going to get beat deep, they'd reach out and grab the receiver ... Who knows if the players were coached to do this, but I do think defensive PI enforcement is too lenient.
  14. This is true. Fourth-down-and goal from the 8-yard-line? Tell your DBs to hold on any close pass play. Rinse and repeat from half the distance.
