      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 it falls in line with the defenseless player protection rule since it hits the ground first the receiving player cannot call a fair catch , leaving them a sitting duck . The way I have seen this coached is on kickoff is guy 1 drills the receiving player on the return and guy 2 recovers the football. Really only an issue for teams with a good enough kicker to to pull off that type of onside off, basically coaches will just have to get more creative with onside kicks.
  2. My thoughts as well...... but we know the Bulldogs love to be the underdog they will will actually enjoy and embrace the role, I mean hey you get a shot at #6 week 1
  3. Agreed we are losing a terrific member of our staff , but NP gained a good one best of luck to Coach Carnes and the Cougars this season!
  4. 2017 Hoosiers

    Tough kid, from a powerhouse program in Cincy Elder could play a role similar to what Zander had last year then be handed the reins next year that gives 3 years as a starter and security at a very important position that IU can continue to recruit the athletes to put around him. I think this kid could have a bright future for the Hoosiers.
  5. Archie Miller hired at IU

    New broke last night that all 3 of IUs Signee's inn the class of 2017 will stay with the Hoosiers a win for Archie considering Cliff Moore will give some more depth at PF especially if Bryant does stay in the NBA so people have mentioned they think its a bad spot in terms of spots on the roster especially with Archies top recruit from Dayton back on the board (personally I think we will stay closer to home now and play for Pitino at Minn) will be interesting to see how it all plays out.
  6. I agree I don't think it is a big jump from Freshman to JV anyway so if you can keep a group of kids together that have been playing with each other since youth league (if your a small town school) or Begin to develop some chemistry with all of your kids coming from different middle schools (if your a 5 or 6A program) is going to pay dividends in the long run and you still get the same development on the field. IMO the only time you bring up a Freshman is if he is good enough to play Varsity which does happen at 4,5,6 A schools but not often its better to keep them with their classmates than play JV, plus its more playing time for your 10th and 11th graders that might not see Varsity action.
  7. Archie Miller hired at IU

    Agreed even if they don't land Langford which may be tough considering the proximity of his hometown to U of L , I would have to think priority number 1a would now be Kevin Easley Jr. from LN decommitted from VCU because of the coaching change... I have a sneaking suspicion hes going head south for college but Bloomington is a lot closer than Baton Rouge where VCU's coach ended up. I think when its all said an done Archie will end up with an Indiana Heavy 2018 that could include Easley, Jallow, and Phinisee, if that were to happen I would be ok with not landing Langford
  8. Archie Miller hired at IU

    Osterman wrote a joke of an article ( and I usually enjoy his coverage of the Hoosiers) saying OG declaring for the draft was "Archie's first loss" as Indiana head coach smh. And people wonder why things are they way they are at Indiana. This guy is 2 weeks in and 6 months away from even an exhibition game and still has a roster with some recruiting to get figured out and we are giving him a loss? I LOVE the mentality and approach thus far on Miller and he has the fan support 100% right now I believe, but its early April, guys are going to come, guys are going to leave. Hes going to win games hes going to lose games lets get to next fall/winter before we start handing him losses Mr. Osterman.
  9. Schools set to consolidate !

    Also trying to stick to the topic of football on a football forum.... who will be the head coach of the new school? I know Turkey Run currently doesn't not have a head coach and Rockville's Batty is entering his 2nd year will he be automatically granted the head coaching position or will they open it up to prospective coaches? Seems like the job would be a little more attractive with the added athletes even if only a few of the returning players from TR are good enough to start for Rockville or vice versa I don't know which school is currently better I know Rockville has had much success in football in recent years. It would also be interesting to see how this will work out for all sports, especially if the two schools have successful programs each in the same sport.
  10. a little bias but my old man delivered a speech to the 09 bulldogs before the regional with Ritter that still gives goosebumps, I know the Dawgs and Raiders have a ton more respect for each other these days now that they are conference opponents , but a lot of the material was provided by the GID lol attached is only about half of the speech. Then the next week before the Semi-State vs Paoli, former Ritter head coach and former Monrovia Principal Duffy Hagist gave a pretty inspirational and emotional pre game speech as well. All great memories
  11. Not to give a spoiler but When Jon Snow is crowded the king in North at the end of the last season was pretty intense set off my Lyanna Mormont
  12. I think 3A-6A HAVE to have a freshmen team in order to be a successful program they have the numbers of total kids in the school so if you don't have the numbers to field a Freshmen that would mean your program is lacking appeal for students in your school (can't win if large numbers your best athletes aren't playing football). 1A and 2A school can survive without but it certainly is a nice luxury to have if you have it at that level. My Jr year at Monrovia we maybe had 20ish kids on jv and 20ish kids that played Varsity only about 47 kids total and were 14-1
  13. http://eaglecountryonline.com/local-article/msj-lions-football-coach-rod-huber-retiring-after-27-seasons/ Congrats to Coach Huber on an amazing career at MSJ was honored to play for him, there was only one way to describe coach and that was "if you were walking in a crowed mall in the middle of the day and caught a glimpse of coach Huber you would know right away that guy is a football coach!" On another note congrats to Tyler Hopperton who will serve as interim head coach, Hopp was a senior my freshman year and joined the staff right after graduation he loves and is truly committed to the program!
  14. Parents or players thoughts on D3

    I did the HCAC tour while being recruited ended up at Mt St Joe (actually closer from Indy than Manchester just a straight shot down 74 and on the west side of Cincy), I would encourage you to look at all of them all have good things about their programs both academically and from a football stand point.
