      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.

If Southport does join the MIC. The MIC should play 8 conference games and still play 2 non conference games. They can play their week ten games while the rest of state plays the first round of the sectional. The HCC could potentially do the same thing. 

HCC with have 8 with FC so that will mean they will still have 2 weeks for non conference opponents in the 9 week regular season this would apply if they decided to add a 9th member

As the HCC schools grow, they will be right on line or surpass many of the MIC schools in enrollment. It would be interesting to see if the MIC and HCC (or even some or all of the Mid State schools) merge into a mega conference like I've suggested before, which would be Indianapolis' version of what Columbus, Ohio has in the OCC. This would put schools into divisions like we've talked about before.

When the Lafayette schools left, there was an attempt by the MIC to combine the two conferences and the HCC schools declined.

The IHSAA does not allow that.

Just to give a little perspective from Illinois

If the Terre Haute schools tried to join a conference over here, It would have to be the Big 12. They would fit, but there would be some absolutely terrible road trips.

Big 12

Bloomington 1,341

Champaign Centennial 1,421

Champaign Central 1,218

Danville 1,591

Normal Community 2,052

Normal West 1,641

Peoria Central 1,267

Peoria Manual 642

Peoria Notre Dame 792 (enrollment)/1306.80 with the multiplier

Peoria Richwoods 1,275

Urbana 1,069

 

The shortest road trip would be to Danville (1 hour)

The longest road trip would be to the four Peoria Schools (at least 3 hours)

Would this conference be receptive to adding Indiana schools that are so far away?

The Terre Haute schools are in a tough place, both geographically and as attractive conference members.  From conversations that have been relayed to me, Conference Indiana would drop them in a heartbeat if it benefited the rest of the conference.  There are no schools in west central Indiana for them to go with to form a new conference.  I doubt Conference Indiana will look like it does now in the future.  Whether that's sooner or later, only time will tell.  What TH South and North do then will be interesting to see.  There aren't many good options for them.

What do you mean by "as attractive conference members"?

I think one word describes being unattractive and it doesn't have anything to do with competitiveness. . . .   location!  

People see it's as too far.  Unfortunately for TH, that's not going to change.

I think it would be a 50-50 vote, so probably not.

At one time, I know that the Danville AD talked with the Terre Haute people, but that's when the Big 12 was only seven teams. Since the Peoria teams have been added things have been pretty stable.

In the Mark James era, they were consistently good in boys hoops. They had a few 20 win seasons and regularly finished +10 in W/L. They haven't had sustained success since 2010 or so.  The girls were very tough from 2012-15 but were mediocre to terrible before that. Both teams were around .500 this past season. 

Pam Taylor was a good coach at FC her last few years were a struggle, but they won four Sectionals between 1999 and 2010.  Brian Hacker's done a nice job (protege of Pam's).  John Rockey's done a competent job with the boys program since Mark left.  In fact, they had won four straight Sectionals before this year's loss on a last second shot to Center Grove.  

Football was once FC's calling card.  They've been through several coaches as we know since Lance Sheib left.  The Chuck Stephens days are remembered fondly at the Ordinary in Wanamaker or at a Wheatley's Fish Fry.  FC won state in cross country in the late 90's.  Track program typically has been solid...not great.  Wrestling same.  They are usually very good in softball under Kathy Stricker.
