  1. I just noticed on John Harrell's site that in week 2, Cass will travel to Coldwater, MI, to play the Coldwater Cardinals. Does anyone have a backstory to why these two schools are playing one another? I did a bit of research on Coldwater here. http://michigan-football.com/f/cwater.htm It appears that Coldwater was perennially a weaker program until the past four years, featuring a record of 33-11, including an appearance in the semi-state two seasons ago. Enrollment wise, Coldwater has an enrollment of 933, making them the equivalent of an Indiana 4A school.
  2. Purdue is currently putting together a great recruiting class by their standards. They are currently at 14 commits and are ranked 41st by rivals and 42nd by 247sports. I expect that number to settle to around 50 once other established programs fill out their classes. With being said, it looks like Brohm's first true class is going to be ranked higher than all of Darrell Hazell's classes. Hazell's were normally ranked in the 60s and 70s and he normally didn't have 10-12 recruits until around December. The best part of this class is that there are currently four offensive linemen in it.
  3. I was checking team recruiting rankings yesterday and scrolled to the bottom, expecting to see Kansas there. I didn't. I kept scrolling up and up on Rivals.com until I found Kansas at #13. Kansas at #13!?!? I then found out that Kansas has a five star commit and a four star commit, both from the same high school in Louisiana. Apparently Kansas has a former longtime high school coach from Louisiana on their staff and they pulled in six commits from LA in one weekend. Upon further research, the five star recruit, #21 overall and #4 WR Devonta Jason, was heavily recruited, especially by the SEC and Alabama, and many expect him to still commit to a powerhouse. Many feel that Jason committing to Kansas is too crazy to be true. Jason has been quoted as saying that he wanted his commitment to "stick out." He has certainly accomplished that. Had Jason committed to Alabama or another SEC school, it would have been a great place to springboard his NFL career. If he helps turn around the Kansas program, though, it will make him a legend. Kansas's current class has 12 commitments, one five star, one four star, and 10 three star commits. Even without the top two recruits from this class, it would still be the best Kansas class in many years. This is far greater than Kansas's class from two years ago, in which there were more 2 star commits than three star commits.
  4. As of roughly ten days ago, Purdue had zero commits for the 2018 class. Purdue now has six! Recruiting has picked up and Purdue is finally tapping the surrounding region. Notice that 5 of the 6 commits are from Indiana or surrounding states, with Kentucky looking to be a major resource. http://purdue.247sports.com/Season/2018-Football/Commits
  5. Better call cousin Brett too.
  6. Congrats to the Kiser family on a huge track state finals! Madison repeated as state champion in the 800 and Jack finished 7th in discus and 8th in shot put with two personal record throws!
  7. I attended Pioneer, a Jr/Sr HS in 7th and 9-12, and I attended Winamac in 8th grade, which had a middle school and a HS. At Winamac, the two schools were in the same building, but had separate wings. At Pioneer, it was impossible to not intermingle with all grades. 7th and 8th graders shared the halls with seniors and on very rare occasions took classes with high schoolers. I remember an 8th grade history class that, if failed, had to be retaken, and I can think of two sophomores who were taking it because they had failed it twice. A locker room was shared by 5th (for cross country) 6th, 7th, 8th graders, JV athletes, and the varsity swimming team, while all other varsity athletes had their own locker room. At Winamac, I remember seeing high school students every so often, but it wasn't a normal occurrence. At Pioneer, most teachers taught classes for 7th and 8th graders as well as high school level courses. That's why it is considered to be cheaper. At Winamac, only elective teachers taught middle school and high school classes, such as home economics, PE, art, music, and drama.
  8. No. Wishful thinking on my part.
  9. I was wondering that as I posted, but wasn't sure where to research it. Thanks. Success factor classification shouldn't come in "cycles." Any given two year period should be added up.
  10. I think that LCC will be, for the most part, fine. They might suffer through a few "down" seasons, but they will only be considered to be down years in the eyes of the LCC faithful. If, and it's a big "if" in my opinion, Pioneer beats LCC this year and is moved up to 2A via success factor, they will be in a similar position to what Pioneer was in a few years back. The year that LCC moved to 2A via success factor, Pioneer went through a "down season." They finished 10-3, losing twice to Winamac and once to Cass, finishing second in the MWC to Winamac. Around that time numbers were very low. There were only roughly 30 boys on the roster, if I remember correctly. The silver lining to this was that even a down Pioneer team was better than the majority of 1A. With LCC gone, Pioneer was even able to win a sectional, something that they hadn't done in five years. LCC might go through a down cycle, but they will still be able to at least compete in and win their sectional and probably more.
  11. Good for Clay Scott. He was a good color commentator on the radio for Pioneer and a great contributor to Panther athletics.
  12. I hear that Darrell Hazell is currently unemployed.
  13. I heard that Ryan Leaf was the manager for the Montana State Prison rec team.
  14. Bobby Cox has said that all transfers will be turned down due to being for athletic reasons.
  15. Missed in all of this is the fact that Barr is a two-time state champion head coach. He won two state titles at Chatard in the late 1990s.
