      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. I think Brebeuf is going to surprise many of you guys. I don't think there is any doubt they are a top 10 team this year ( they did knock off Cathedral last year). They have some pre-season injuries but I think they are going to be formidable. Guess we will know more next week (Chatard v. Brebeuf). I think Guerin will be good but, as I understand it, they lost most of their O-line and D-line via graduation. Add that they lost one of the best backs I saw all last year and one of the the best kickers I saw as well (likely one of the 2-3 best kickers - all classes). I think Danville might surprise some....they certainly surprised Chatard last year. Add that their coach is in his second year there. I'm a big fan of Ritter and Monrovia but I think they will find 3A formidable. Last year, outside of Concordia Lutheran (who was heads above anyone in 3A and probably 4A), it was probably the most competitive class overall in Indiana....with the possible exception of 6A.
  2. GID poll??

    Just for the record, I have little doubt that our poll is WAY more thoughtful than any you will see anywhere else.....but Week 1 is going to be an educated guess for the biggest of us HS football geeks mixed with a little bit of "Homer" optimism.... Go Franklin County!
  3. Conference Indiana 2017

    I plan on watching Perry Meridian live a bit this Friday.
  4. Clearly Brebeuf (No. 5 per Sagarin at year end last year but then he is a well-known Id!ot as compared to the Football Digest Einsteins), Chatard (No. 2 per Sagarin at season's end last year) and Guerin (No. 10 at season's end last year per Sagarin) are well outside the discussion in 3A per the intellects involved with The Football Digest. Hopefully, with prayer, one of them can claw and strain their way someday into the Top 10. Probably not in my lifetime....certainly not this year. Its a generational struggle. I may not ever live to see it.
  5. New Cathedral QB

    Not to put too fine of a point on it, but my guess is that Coach Kennedy in Franklin County (Brookville) would be as surprised as I that all this talent had roots in Franklin County (Brookville)....as someone who has long and continuing roots there. My guess is that somehow Cincinnati has now somehow become defined as Brookville West. I'm sure that all that great talent from Moeller and Elder are proud Brookville residents as well per this criteria. But then, why wouldn't they be? It's God's country.
  6. Awright Coach......sign me up for 4A and 5A too. I'm likely to stink it up for the first 4-5 weeks in those classes, though. I'll do the best I can in my brief moments of sobriety....very brief moments. BTW, if "Dan Jones" isn't taking part in some of these polls he should be. He has often amazed me about how much more he knows about teams (including my beloved Trojans) that I follow closely...and several dozen others I don't follow closely. I honestly don't think anybody tracks teams as well as he does. Its scary.
  7. Sign me up for 3A. I'd like to do 2A, 4A and 5A but I'm fundamentally too lazy.....though, I will be the first to criticize those rankings if I disagree. Did I mention I am a hypocrite as well?
  8. I didn't realize Brebeuf (who defeated Cathedral last year) and Guerin had left the IHSAA.
  9. Nada. Love Chatard's schedule. Edit - one change. I, like Guru, would like to see Ritter back on Chatard's schedule.
  10. = then Senior not = then best player I think we all know this...am I smelling an agenda?
  11. I understand....and can't really argue it. In looking at Chatard's schedule of the late 2000s you can see that scheduling was difficult with the result being some of the IPS teams on the schedule who weren't particularly competitive at the time. Even so, the new conference, so far, hasn't added a single team that the larger 4 CCC teams weren't already playing. That said, I really like Chatard's schedule this year....although I am not as familiar with St. Francis DeSales (Columbus, OH). The reality of the conference as it now stands is that the schedule might end up looking more like the late 2000s schedule. The Conference Indiana teams clearly allow for the schedule to be maintained at a higher level. As to Ritter and Scecina joining the conference, it makes sense particularly since it would now include all the Archdiocesan teams (Chatard, Ritter, Roncalli and Scecina) but bear in mind the Scecina game was cancelled by Scecina (as I understand it) after 2010 because it was not competitive at the time (I think Scecina was 1A then). As to Ritter, well they are now 3A...just where do they fall in the divisions? My guess is that they don't fit into the "smaller" school division quite so well. Plus, unless there are some "alterations" at Ritter they appear to have no intentions to play Chatard any time soon. To be clear, I am a huge supporter of the conference but there issues that need resolved.
  12. I have to agree with Coach G and Bitterbean about travel. Travel isn't that big an issue. Heck, Chatard doesn't even have a field - even home games involve a certain amount of travel - depending on what field they are able to procure. New Pal is literally next door. Columbus is, what, maybe another 30 minutes further South of Roncalli? Frankly, not even Bloomington is that big of a deal as regards travel. I'd still like to see a regular season Evansville area trip (GS, Reitz, Mater Dei). I miss the Dwenger game that was played for a couple of years. I do agree with Dante in that I don't see the value in conferences with divisions - particularly when those divisions are centered around size.....as opposed to location. I know the EIAC is using that model now but I'm not sure fans think much of it (and I wonder, in general, as to its benefits).
  13. Yes, I have heard much the same. I also agree with your thought regarding Covenant. Barring someone new entering, I think it's a 4 team football conference for some time. I also think the very fact that HC and Covenant are in the conference make it even more difficult for a Southport and CN entry. I can see Roncalli, Guerin, Brebeuf and Chatard being comfortable playing Southport and CN in football and other sports but I would think that HC and Covenant would not be in favor of their addition.
