      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.

  1. NECC 2017

    It is hurting me that the numbers are down all over the place. FUTBOL is not the same as FOOTBALL. I am totally convinced that the Eagles will be fine once the 1st whistle blows! They always are, and always will be! Boy do I love the NECC! Its a fantastic Conference full of rivalries and loyalty that makes Friday nights fun......
  2. I brought up this condrum a while back... got voted down....smh. Time to schedule Saturdays for VARSITY Football
  3. NECC 2017

    Lol. Roflmao. Good guys and all into our kids. Plus it's "Porkburger Alley".... yummy
  4. NECC 2017

    I am NOT drinkiing the kool aid I know the coaching staff...
  5. The Dragons (KY) have been down lately. Warren County schools have added additional HS, and it has contributed to the FB program not being as strong as in past years.... Go Dragons...!!!! If you 2 guys who voted down don't get with the 3rd team on the field and understand the concerns.... I really don't know what to say. We have extremely serious problems happening with crews in many sports at the amateur level in multiple states.
  6. A pleasure to be a part of both logos this past fall.... small part. Congrats to the class shown on both sidelines and can't wait to start 2017!!
  7. Who Misses the Jamboree? I do

    Again, as an official ... The Jamboree is much more "educational" to us than the current format. Then incorporate the Scrimmage format to the JV players exclusively on a Monday night..... Have the Jamboree on Friday or the previous Saturday night.
  8. New Turf In 2017?

    Hopefully NOT Papa (well ya know).... Go Blaze Pizza (and introduce it to the FW Area)
  9. As an official. The suggestion that I would make is 2 fold: We have a significant dearth of officials that is happening now, and will not get better in the ensuing years... Move some games to Saturday, and allow Sundays as a "makeup" day if needed...
  10. New Turf In 2017?

    The perception about the public schools' field; , Is that there was a 'benefactor' that would have turfed Spuller (Northrop/Snider). But in the absence of doing all 4 FWCS public fields... It was turned down, as showing bias to one over the others. Kinda understandable actually. As for Zollner, I truly cannot believe that a private source hasn't stepped up to help out BD and CCHS. We need turf on those fields. Homestead has turf and Carroll's grass field is IMPECCABLE....
  11. Jersey Numbers

    Coach, I don't disagree at all..BUT.... That's what we are told to enforce, and honestly it is something that we sometimes get "gigged on" later by schools. Bison has eloquently expounded on my observations, I will go with that...
  12. Jersey Numbers

    Sorry it took so long to reply, long week at work and haven't checked in lately. Obviously I am not blind to understanding that kids like to "look good" when they take the field. When I played HS FB, our uni's were basically carbon copies of Penn State, with a logo on the helmet, and cut off mesh shirts. Would I have liked a 'flashier look' of course.... But that is not what I am getting at. That is really not the thrust of my discontent. This moreso has to do with: Exposed knees; Pants which are basically 'bicycle shorts'; Shirts tucked under the shoulder pads; Exposed/Untucked Rib protectors; NO Knee Pads; (the belief that you can wear extended girdles) and REMOVE your knee pads because they are 'included in the girdle'; Eye Black that basically is applied to be a "Jr. Al Jolson"; Wearing of Jewelry; Bandanas extending beyond the helmet; Illegal Eye Shades on the facemask; Illegal facemasks; Play sheets attached to the pants/waist; Shirts that do not extend beyond the shoulder pads; Towel colors; Writing on towels..... the list goes on and on. Everyone of those I have had to deal with in the past year, and I would guess that they will all come up again in the future. Bandanas, seem to be 'cause-celeb' thing that is going on now.
  13. Seeding the tournament

    This is also the MO system. both of which I was a part of while in HS. Either you "qualify" within a series of district games, or you don't make the tournament. The difference in KY and MO systems: Is that in MO, you play ALL games in the tournament at a neutral site. In KY, games are played at 'home' until the State Finals. And while in KY, we regularly played 11-12 games in the regular season. Similarly, we played more than 9 in MO when I was there also. But did in fact play within a conference, but scheduled our district opponents on the outside of conference weeks for qualification purposes. This is also the MO and KY playoff system. both of which I was a part of while in HS. Either you "qualify" within a series of district games, or you don't make the tournament.

  14. CIC questions

    I don't have any thoughts or feelings on this situation: But where would Ole Miss go? Is there a conference in the general area that would give them "better" competition in all sports other than FB that would be a better alternative than the CIC? And why would the CIC expand, when expansion has occurred all over "Northern/Central IN" recently? Please provide more info, other than a 'might this happen' scenario.....
  15. I am all for it Bob!!!
