  1. Hat's off to Penn. Played a great game against the Hounds! BTW smashmouth.. Viktrup was a 2 year varsity starter (not 3). He wasn't in the mix his sophomore year, although it does seem like he's been around forever. Isaac James and John Lampe were at the helm when Viktrup was a sophomore.(unless you're talking about his Freshman season)
  2. Totally Agree... I read that Central Indiana football was ranked 3rd in the Country 2 years ago. How Purdue and IU don't grab the top talent from the State is ridiculous.
  3. FINALLY!!! Center Grove (sect. 8) no longer gets a cake walk to the Semi Finals in 6A. Warren Central moved to sect. 7
  4. Totally agree with you on this one Coach. My son had issues with a particular math class. We had a paid tutor for the entire semester and he could only manage a D+.
  5. Great feedback from everyone. One reason I ask this question is every year, focusing on the MIC, is that there appears to be talented kids from this conference that don't go on to D1 schools. I assume that it's for academic reasons...
  6. You're bringing up old memories for me as well back in Tennessee. I had totally forgot about report card day and waiting in line for the football coaches to check grades... Man, those were the good ole days.. Back then, we followed Texas' no pass no play rule which I believe was 2-Fs and you're out for the season.
  7. Since the IHSAA is the "Governing Body", I wonder why it's not uniform? Could it be that the assumption is not all schools have the same educational standards? No sure... BTW, I like your school corps requirements.
  8. Great feedback. If I understand your schools policy using 5 courses (4-Cs and 1-F) that would put the GPA at 1.6. This is still well below 2.3 for NCAA eligibility. -
  9. Question for the forum: With the increase in academic eligibility requirements being implemented for NCAA D1/D2 participation, should Indiana schools increase their academic eligibility to prepare student-athletes for college. 2016 college bound athletes must have a 2.3 in Core classes (Language, Math, Science, Social Studies). I bring this up as a result of a tweet I read from a D1 college recruiter "U say you're D1 Bound, u talk a big game, tweet how everyone is sleeping on u, but when Coaches see your transcript.. " Currently at my local high school, the requirements for athletic eligibility are the following: ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY To be eligible for athletics a student must: • have passed five full credit classes or the equivalent during the previous grade period, with semester grades taking precedence; • be and remain enrolled in five full credit classes or the equivalent. (Audits and Incompletes CANNOT be counted towards meeting these requirements) If I understand this correctly, a student athlete at my local school would be eligible with as low as a 1.0 Semester GPA (5-D's). What's everyone's thoughts?
  10. Not a problem. I'm not a fan of these academies either. It has the appearance that one can pay their way to the top of athletics. Especially, when you enter the school at a young age. I think that the professional component has it's benefit. Sharapova (Women's Tennis) and countless pro golfers have received training at this academy. I wish Coach Wright nothing but the best. My son, who graduates in May, played 4 years for him at Carmel and Wright did more than just coach student-athletes. It was apparent from the beginning that he truly cared about the well being of the kids.
  11. Looking at their website. they are much more than a football factory. I first heard about IMG about 12 years when alot of US tennis and golf players were sharpening their skills there. Appears to have added a football team 2 years ago.
  12. From USA Today HS Sports: http://usatodayhss.com/2015/img-academy-names-steve-walsh-as-director-of-football-and-kevin-wright-as-coach
  13. IMG is a great place for a coach with his experience.
  14. Totally agree. The next coach will have huge shoes to fill....
  15. Hot off the presses from AD at Carmel High School. Head Coach Kevin Wright resigns from Carmel HS.
