  1. Penn safety Paul Moala picks up an offer from ND at the Irish Invasion.

  3. David Perkins transferred from tOSU to Illinois State. Signed as an UDFA by the Seahawks last season, pretty sure he didn't make the 53 man, but not sure if he was on the practice squad?
  4. Franko House from Concord played basketball at Ball St. signed with the Bears to be a TE.
  5. Gehrig Dieter (SBW) signs as an UDFA with the KC Chiefs.
  6. Franko House (Concord - Ball St. basketball) signs as an UDFA with the Bears (TE).
  7. Speaking to this year, Yeast and Hip. The other two I don't know I would classify as "letting them get away" so much as tOSU is tough to beat in recruiting and Robertson, well, it's probably a moot point in hindsight.
  8. No offense to those guys, but ND had better guys committed at one point... then they went 4-8, had staff turnover, and had to scramble. What ND has been terrible at over the years is staying on top of their plan B guys while not treating them like plan B guys. With all the obstacles ND faces where kids routinely drop out late bc they can't get their grades up or just flip, they should pursue the SEC strategy and over-offer. Take 30 commits bc you know 3-4 won't make grades and another 4-5 will flip. I'm curious to see Allen at IU with a full year to recruit. You can build a solid foundation in state, yet no one has seemingly tried it. I think the MIC is underrecruited in that middle tier of prospects. Pluck a few under the radar/developmental guys from around the state, hit up JUCOs in the south, and you're cooking with grease.
  9. Unless there's a mass realignment, a 1 for 1 replacement of Snider for NE Indy catholic school doesn't really change my point. 4A north has more quantity and quality compared to 5A as most of the 4A north schools won't be realigned south due to location.
  10. Fair enough, likewise I'm not trying to slight LP or MC. Just going off what I've seen/picked up over the last few years. Maybe I didn't word it well. Although Snider's record is consistently respectable to good, there's a difference between the quality of their teams that lose 2-3 regular season games and the ones that go deep. My point was good or less good, Snider was kind of the only roadblock in the 5A north and in the years they're "less good" they're by no means insurmountable. 4A north, although none of those teams at their absolute best may be equivalent to Snider at their absolute best; they're usually solid-very good, consistent, programs. A lot more landmines to get through in the 4A north landscape.
  11. Then everyone would voluntarily bump to 6A.
  12. But the road to state in 5A north is much easier without Snider/Westfield. You might not win it, but Mishawaka will stand a better chance of getting there.
  13. Yeah, I don't know, kind of hung up on the world "ample". I need to see more from them. They could provide some competition in the same way the occasional 6A DAC team does Penn, but Mishawaka has been closer to Penn than anything the DAC has produced the last few years; so I tend to think Mishawaka won't have that much trouble with them. I still think Mishawaka is in a tier by themselves in the 5A north.
  14. 5A north... woof
  15. Probabaly an easier road to state most years. In the 5A north it's pretty much Snider and they've been up and down in recent years. I don't really see any teams west of Elkhart that'd consistently challenge Mishawaka before regionals. 4A the northern half has Northwood, Lowell, New Prairie, Dwenger, New Haven, East Noble, Andrean, Plymouth... more consistent programs and earlier in the playoffs. 1-2 tough games to get to state or 3-4? *Are Snider AND Westfield both getting bumped to 6A? If that's the case, then Mishawaka is probably the prohibitive favorite to rep the north.
