      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. Soutridge @ Linton

    Good to see you posting, Tut. Glad to hear you are doing well. Sounds like the Junior High Miners are off to a good start. I wasn't aware that half the juniors aren't on the team this year. Weird. Most years, Linton always has talent. I think this year it will be the inexperience that will have to be overcome. From what I remember about the JV players last year, overall they played well against other teams' varsities. I read a couple of articles about the scrimmage last week. There wasn't much about the defense, but heard they only gave up 2 scores. Not too bad for an inexperienced group. Heard the offense turned it over twice (for scores). Taking care of the ball will be a big factor with the younger/inexperienced team. You know how mistakes can change momentum. Once it's lost, it's hard to get it back. Looking forward to the start of another great season.
  2. 2017 Hoosiers

    You can bet there will be a HUGE crowd. Ohio State fans travel well and since Columbus (Ohio) is only about 3 - 4 hours away and it is a night game, there will be a ton of scarlet and gray in the stadium. By the way, ESPN is doing a special night edition of College Game Day. It is scheduled to be from 6 - 8 p.m. It will be the first time they have ever done a College Game Day in Bloomington. Should be crazy.
  3. Soutridge @ Linton

    This schedule change was made a couple of years ago. They have played twice (week 8 in 2015, and 2016) and also in last year's (2016) regionals. Mistake free football or not, the Miners still won those 3 games by a combined score of: 174 - 14. That's an average of 58 - 4.6 per game. There have been several years when a team will beat another team during the season and the same 2 teams meet in sectionals with a totally different outcome. It happens. I would agree the Miners are always ready and usually playing their best football in October (tournament time). I am expecting a good game from both sidelines. Haven't seen Kingtut on here in several days. Hope he is okay. GO MINERS!!!
  4. Soutridge @ Linton

    It's already Wednesday. Where are all of the Linton fans? This isn't normal. This isn't normal at all. SouthNZone is the only one who has commented. It's the start of a new season and a new chapter in Miner football! I noticed the A.P. poll has the Miners at #5 and Southridge at #7. A little added pressure for both teams to play a ranked opponent in week 1? Also they are in the same sectional now. Loving it!!! I'm a little envious of Cathedral fans. They get to watch playoff type games practically every week. I'd love to see the Miners get to that point. It's just my humble opinion, but I'll take playoff type games every week over 50. 60, or 70 to nothing blowouts. Obviously Linton would never have a schedule like Cathedral's. I was merely pointing out their competition, week in week out is playoff type games. Linton's schedule is way different than it was just a couple of years ago but I think there are still a couple of changes that could be made to get it to that "playoff type game every week" during the season. I realize it takes time to get schedules set and maybe more changes are in the future. It is far better to watch a game (and seeing the fans stay to the end) that is say a 28 - 24 score than it is a 60 - 0 blowout and seeing the stands empty by halftime. Or in some cases, fans not coming to the games at all. Over the years, I have heard many fans claim they weren't even going to the game because they already KNEW who was going to win. I would hope fans will come to the games because they DON'T know who is going to win. Love it! Looking forward to a good one Friday night at Roy Williams Field! GO MINERS!!!
  5. Linton starts their 2017 season as a new member of class 2A football. Additionally, they start with Southridge, the #10 ranked team (coaches poll) in the state. A lot of new faces are on the Miner squad this season. Harrell's website is predicting a 42 - 21 win for the Miners. I'm sure that is being based off of last year so the score (and even who wins) is rather a moot point at this time. I am expecting a good game from both teams. Southridge plays in the always tough Pocket Conference, so they are no stranger to playing good competition against the likes of Gibson Southern and Heritage Hills. From a "homer" standpoint, I hope the Miners shake off the turnover bug from their scrimmage last week and protect the ball. Good luck and good health to both programs. GO MINERS!!!
  6. 2017 Indianapolis Colts

    Preseason game or not, the Colts offense looked VERY weak yesterday. 10 points and 230 yards of total offense won't win ANY games. I thought the #1's on defense looked much better than last year's fiasco. Wilson (rookie CB) did give up that first TD, but only because he lost sight of the ball. I thought Hooker silenced a lot of people yesterday with his tackling. Many people felt he was a poor tackler coming out of college. I believe he had 4 tackles yesterday. While that isn't many, one saved a TD. The offensive line is still a mess. I know a couple of starters were out, but where is the depth we heard about from training camp? I certainly didn't see any. There were ZERO running lanes and pass protection was lukewarm. Our receivers couldn't get away from a 70 year old woman with a walker. It was sickening to watch. Again, I know it's the first preseason game, but it was pretty much a dumpster fire. Tolzein needs let go RIGHT NOW. Anyone for signing RGIII? LOL
  7. IT'S SCRIMMAGE TIME!

    Linton's scrimmage last night was a learning experience. It is understandable that a young team will make mistakes and they made a couple. Don't know how much the rain affected things but it rains on both sides of the field. At any rate, the mistakes can be corrected and knowing how the coaching staff is, those mistakes will be fixed. Glad to see Chance Howard score (12 yards out). They are going to need strong play from the fullback spot. The past couple of years the Miners got great production from Garrett Mason. I hope Howard fills that spot and has a great season. Things begin to get real next Friday.
  8. I was replying to the fourth post (by JQWL) in this topic They were the one who posted, "even basing it off last year's polls". I was just pointing out if you did that, West Washington should be ranked higher. Nothing more.
  9. That may be true but it wasn't part of the criteria. Nothing was said about head to head. If you go off that one game, then you could make an argument for Eastern Greene but just going off last year's polls (as the poster said), West Washington was ranked #4 in both polls and Eastern wasn't in the top ten.
  10. If you based it just off last year's poll(s), then West Washington should be ranked ahead of Eastern Greene. In the final polls from last season: AP - West Washington ranked #4, Eastern Greene ranked 14th.....in the IFCA Coaches poll - West Washington ranked #4, and Eastern Greene not ranked at all. At least Eastern Greene is in the others receiving votes this year. It's just preseason. You know it's going to change.
  11. IT'S SCRIMMAGE TIME!

    Lagrange......my favorite ZZ Top song. LOL
  12. IT'S SCRIMMAGE TIME!

    I'm pretty sure they were in 1A the past couple of years. (2015 and 2016). Now I know they were. I just checked their past schedules and they played in sectional 43 the past 2 seasons. Also they were ranked 10th in the last 1A poll last year.
  13. IT'S SCRIMMAGE TIME!

    Linton scrimmaged Cloverdale for years. Last year they scrimmaged Evansville Bosse. I assume they are playing Bosse again this year. However, I haven't heard one way or the other. Didn't realize the Raiders got moved to 2A. Enrollment?
  14. Is Anquan Boldin a future HOF WR?

    I would agree. For several years now, I've noticed he seems to be a top 5 guy about every year. Not saying he is, just it seems he is. As you said, he's one of those "under the radar" type of players. Maybe it has to do with the team they play for or the market they are in. I'd guess he'll make the hall, it will just be a matter of when.
  15. Jay Cutler to Fins ??

    It was already reported he (Cutler) wouldn't sign with the Dolphins unless he was named the starter. With the ties to Gase, beating out Matt Moore isn't much of an issue. I think it doesn't matter what type of season that Cutler will have. He'll be the starter week 1.
