    That didn't take you long......what a week??? Lets see in a week you have managed to highlight the "poor' programs in the state, advocating removing football from schools, called for multiple head college coaches to be fired already or on the "hot seat' This place has not changed from the days of Coach Tim Adams as it pertains to coaches and their families. We allow what is reported, nothing more, nothing less. I know shall go in the shame corner for allowing myself to get *%#!?*ed into the DT vortex of ridiculousness

    Every year I say this, but what the hell. The all-in tournament is *Deleted*ic for a number of reasons. I was not originally in this camp, but then I did the research. Then I spent time coaching on teams who had absolutely no chance of getting out of a sectional. There is no sound logic behind it. There are really easy ways to cut it down to 32 teams per class. One could make a pretty strong case for cutting it down to 16 since no team lower than 13 has ever made it to the state finals. Cutting two rounds off of the tournament gives everyone an 11 game regular season. How much better would it be to end your 2-8 regular season run with a rivalry game you have a chance in rather than getting run off the field 66-0 by a team everyone knows you can’t beat? Plus, half the teams in the state are getting a bonus 11th game instead of the ten they normally get.

    Just so it's understood, the seeding dilemma in Indiana is not an IHSAA problem. It''s an IFCA hurdle. Once the collective heads in the IFCA can present a viable format and present it to state coaches and principals, then there may be football sectional seedings. I've had this conversation with heads of the IFCA a number of times over the years. Coaches have to come together to make it work. IHSAA will not force a seeding on football. Just a thought...

    Not very. Last 2 games have had a running clock for the second half. Brebuef and Western have been the best competition so far and we went 1-1 losing to Brebeuf by a FG. Had the ball 4th and goal from the 2 with a few seconds left, went for it instead of a FG to tie and wasn't able to punch it in. Decent talent but not really tested in most wins. We will have a better idea of where we stand in the next 2 weeks with St Joe and Bremen.

    I find it hard to believe anyone would ever say Wawasee "used to be a really big power house". Per Almanac Sports, since 1968 when Wawasee was founded after the merging of high schools from Syracuse, Milford and North Webster, the Warriors have had 16 winning seasons (an overall record of 219-275-2) and only have 2 Sectional, Regional and Semi-State championships in school history (1985 and 2004) and 3 NLC championships (1973, 1986, 2004). Also, Wawasee is not the smallest school in the Northern Lakes Conference, NorthWood is. And all the Panthers did last year (as the smallest school in the conference), was go 7-0 in the NLC while averaging 44 points on offense and 19 points on defense in those games and finished the year 14-1 as the class 4A State Runner Ups. Granted, NorthWood has always been known as a football power whereas Wawasee has had it's fair share of ups and downs.

    It got a little chippy in the 4th. A punch was thrown and a player ejected. Triton coaches removed players from the game after that to eliminate additional problems. I'm sure Judson coaches did the same. I don't think it was anything too serious, although I'm always disappointed when I see our guys running their mouths! I hate that.

    I'm cool with Sags. They generally get it right very late in the season (problem being the out-of-state games which CalPreps does incorporate....pretty broad range still between Sags and Calpreps....and I believe CalPreps is closer to reality at this point in the season). Regardless, if you are a contender and have a losing record or modest record (like some smaller teams can have in a tough conference or metro area) you get in. I'm about ready to sign on to BobRef's scenario. I still believe you can have the best of both worlds with an all-in tournament...just seed it in a reasonable fashion.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we had a tournament with only 160 teams, so these next two weeks would be filled with compelling late season games that have post season berths on the line. This would eliminate the need for seeding, because all the 0-9, 1-8 and 2-7 teams would be turning in their gear and getting ready for basketball season. Of course, this is the way its done in almost every other state in the union. But Indiana wants and needs to be different and "unique." And please, don't bring up Northwood. I've heard it a million times. Enough already.

    "I remain optimistic that, despite attitudes like yours, we can learn from other states and not need to reinvent the wheel. Will it be perfect? Probably not. Will it satisfy everyone? Don’t be silly. But will it be a vast improvement? " We had it, it *%#!?*ed, going to the all in was better than the cluster system when you had to qualify. Have not heard of one person who liked the old system in this state better than the new one. Can see no reason to change, many of the other states you mention also have a lot more High Schools as well meaning a longer tourney if all were in. Also be week 4 or 5 if you have been eliminated from playoff contention, and do not have a conference to play in, can not see a lot of intensity in those games either, so you can half many teams playing for nothing and their season basically being over by week 5

    Here is my original post and was a reply to a Mater Dei fan. I was talking about Mater Dei breezing through the first two games. Where does it say it is a given that Linton will make a deep tournament run? I never even hinted at that. They are in the conversation as one of the top three teams in sectional 40. That's all I said. Winning sectional 40 (for ANY team) will be tougher than winning the regional. That still goes. The Sectional 40 winner will be one of the four teams left the week before Thanksgiving.

    I think they called me out and accused me of saying that it is a "given" that Linton will make a deep tournament run. I never said anything close to that. I named the top 3 teams in sectional 40 (and gave them in the order of ranking: MD, Southridge, and Linton) and made the statement that any of those 3 teams could win sectional 39. Never said anything about any teams making a deep run especially the Miners. Can't think why they would say that.

    No. I don't know enough about Brownsburg or Salem to make a prediction. I will say Lawrenceburg is either bored or they're not as good as people thought. I think it's the former, but we'll see come tournament time. Greensburg is a midline option team that will grind it out, grind it out, and grind it out. They're very beatable though. From what I hear, Batesville is extremely high tempo. They're a true no huddle that will run a play every 15 seconds or so. They've given up a lot of points though so we'll see what happens. NH's coach is a former FC guy as well.

I kept the name bc many of my former players and friends still call me "Coach".

    Lawrenceburg is a team that just wants to physically dominate you this year in the trenches. They're running the Single Wing and don't throw much. Their defense is pretty physical as well. They have a bunch of nasty dudes in their front 7 and on the OL this year.

    [sarcasm] meeting one year in the state semi finals and the next year in the first round. Definitely a sign that blind draw is a great playoff system. [/sarcasm]

    I don't think this is the same team Brownstown faced in semi-state last year as they graduated a lot from that team. However, Brownstown did too. This is evident with close games for Lawrenceburg against Batesville, Franklin County and Greensburg. All are solid programs, but they did not play them close last year. It should be a great game. Best of luck to all teams.

    I like the blind draw the way it is, if it just so happens that the 2 "best" teams in a sectional have to play in the first round, that shouldn't diminish the magnitude of that game regardless of which week it's played on. Does it make a difference if that game is played 2 weeks later for the sectional championship? Wouldn't it theoretically be the sectional championship game either way? The last time I checked you don't get any extra "cool" points for being a sectional runner-up.

    We aren't getting a qualification based tournament any time soon IMHO. Just seeding the top two with Sagarin...maybe some head to head logic as well, will at least stop the majority of these complete travesties where two of the top teams in the state play in week 10. Not sure how you do the home field calculation there for the two seeded teams but it shouldn't be tough to figure out.

    Not sure I am following. But then, I haven't started drinking......it will be clearer to me then. Let me read this a couple more times. As to rankings based seedings - start with CalPreps or Sagarin. Next go to drunken Sailors on leave. Next go to my Aunt Alice who sees Jesus...daily. Then go to IFCA. Then, find a bunch more drunken Sailors. Finally, go to AP once you're desperate. Lastly, find me...I'll be drinking with the Sailors. Sailors are just good dudes to drink with. All of which beat ping pong balls.

    OK. Now that I have time to write a re-cap, I will. I know some BNL fans couldn't make it down. First of all, it's just a shame someone had to lose that game. BNL fans will be upset and feel they gave one away and they should. It was a game with about 6 fumbles. FC is usually stingy with turnovers but they coughed it up 3 times in this one. To be honest, I was extremely impressed with BNL. They looked like the better team in the 1st half. We didn't play well in the 1st half and really got fortunate on a 60 yd catch and run TD pass on a great play by Marshall Horner. McCall Ray was great. That kid can really sling it. He made some mistakes in the option game but we couldn't stop his passing. Deckard is a good WR. Floyd went to the Power I in the 2nd half and Jason Cundiff just ran wherever he wanted to. Sometimes Glesing goes back to our roots and pounds on teams, and it worked because BNL had our defense gassed. BNL looks promising. Definitely going to be #2 next season in the HHC. I see Floyd dropping back to 3rd-5th. We have talent returning but not like BNL. I hated that BNL had to lose and their fans are some of the best that come to visit.
