  1. East Central Approves to fund field turf

    I ain't going to lie, I NEVER in a million years saw this coming at EC.
  2. Middle School Football Consolidation

    I remember that field well, watch both of my brothers play there many times. I believe they moved to school in like 80-81 that sound right?
  3. Middle School Football Consolidation

    You are correct, near the Boys Club, a lot closer to down town than it is now.
  4. Middle School Football Consolidation

    You been around long enough to remember the high school playing downtown, at the old HS?
  5. Get out of the left lane with your blinker on papaw!
  6. 2018 NFHS Rule Changes

    Why get one now?
  7. Let me know if you take the next step, I'll be there to heckle!
  8. King of Pancakes - Watch #57

    Often wondered what happened to this kid: https://www.hudl.com/video/3/2122944/5721c090dfe23b2d68a2283b
  9. Middle School Football Consolidation

    No. You're the HC, the MS is your feeder program, it's your responsibility.
  10. Middle School Football Consolidation

    And having the HC also being the AD probably doesn't help that cause. Someone FINALLY said it. Bailey was a blessing during his playing days but has been a curse ever since for BNL. Some might argue his kid is probably a better athlete, not sure if he's as good of basketball player though.
  11. Middle School Football Consolidation

    Don't get too excited DT, I'm sure any mention of a consolidation in Basketball would be laughed out of the board meeting.
  12. I should have prefaced this by saying high school coaches, below that, MS and youth league, it's horrible. There are places I refuse to work because of such nonsense.
  13. I disagree with this. In fact I'd say it's more the exception than the norm. I would argue most coaches we deal with are professional, courteous, and very easy to get along with.
  14. Middle School Football Consolidation

    Totally agree with running the same offense, Weber had to be totally dismayed at the school board vote a year or so where he didn't get control of the MS teams. The big con as I see it uniting under one team, you start paring your team down in the 7th grade instead of the 9th grade. Multiple feeder schools have a big advantage over their single feeder counterparts. In BNL's case, 3 QB's getting reps, 6 RB's 6-9 receivers/slots, 3 centers, etc., all the way thru the 8th grade. Single school feeders only have 1 QB, 2 RB's, 2-3 receivers/slots, 1 center, etc.
  15. Rules Ideas

    I talk to coaches before the game. I have one wing who is pretty quick with a sideline warning, he has very few problems. My other wing for whatever reason doesn't like to use his freebie and complains constantly about his sideline. I tell coaches we can work with you, but when the ball's in play, no one can be in the white. When I worked the chains, I never had much problem with it. I was always up front about what my expectations were and most guys respected that.
  16. Rules Ideas

    Do away with pants covering the knee................I'm tired of being the uniform police.
  17. Meanwhile St. Francis and Marian have dominated NAIA in recent years with Indiana dominated rosters. UIndy has had a fair amount of success, Franklin is a consistent winner. I realize the NFL is the big dream, but for the masses it's a pipe dream.
  18. Use of a Guardian for Helmet

    Bloomington South used them in a lower level game I had at Columbus North, not sure if it was frosh or JV. Coach told me they wear them in practice and in all lower level games. He said they've had good results with them. He said they had used them for 2 or 3 years I don't recall. I was not the U or the R, I know nothing of the potential rule implications.
  19. What is a "catch?"

    Just to be clear, it wasn't the 13th time or the 15th time, it was the 14th time.
  20. Officials as independent contractors?

    It is my understanding from reading some of the posts, the point is their state association requires a certain amount of meetings, clinics, etc. Which also requires out of pocket expenses. The thought is by the time they pay all the necessary expenses, they are well below the minimum wage. I'm not sure how this justifies being an employee vs. an independent contractor.
  21. Officials as independent contractors?

  22. 40-Second Play Clock

    When the timing rules were changed however many years ago, that was the biggest difference I've seen. We had IC back in the Casey Gillin days, we had a first half that lasted like 1:30, we were kinda like that's the longest half of Football in history, and one of their assistants told us going in at halftime, great job guys, that's the fastest half we've played all year. Several years back had two no huddle spread check with me teams. Neither team could throw it or catch it. Nearly two hours for the first half. I didn't think that game would EVER get over. Aside from the fact it was two bad teams.
  23. Pat Parks Retiring

    Big loss for the high school game in Indiana, Coach Parks is truly one of the great guys in coaching. Congrats and enjoy your retirement coach Parks.
