    There may be something I’m missing here, but I wanted to offer the following as food for thought: change the JV eligibility rule from 5 quarters to 3 halves. The current rule is often sighted as to why starters have remained in the game late into blowouts. This would easily solve that issue at seemingly no cost. Thoughts?

    That's a joke right? IU has had a 1st team AA lineman in consecutive seasons. I'll give you that IU's line isn't very good this year but when you lose a 2x AA like Dan Feeney and then two other seniors it's bound to struggle, they are extremely young up front. IU has had 4 different 1000 yard rushers in the last 3 years. Tevin Coleman (2000+ yards), Jordan Howard and Devine Redding.

    So if a kid plays 2 plays in the first quarter and 3 plays in the 4th, does this constitute 2 halves? I like the idea, but it might be better to just expand it to 6 quarters, rather then 3 halves.

    I have not heard. He was walking around during the game but had a good limp. It was the knee. It may be sore but I bet 7 days was enough to get him ready for the game. Gipper you sound like a Ft. Wayne(fill in the blank) fan. Don't be so cocky. I agree you have the advantage this Friday but it will be your last win.

    It was actually 1998 when the Giants' all-time record climbed above the .500 mark (defeated Indpls. Northwest 38-20 in the sectional opener on October 23 of that year). That put Ben Davis' record at 300 wins, 299 losses and 12 ties, the first time in history (save the season opener of 1937, when the Giants beat Warren Central 32-9 at Indpls. Washington, during the first year of Ben Davis' modern football history) that the program had been above .500. The Giants are now 485-355-12.

    Many years ago, when my son was playing, my wife brought a sleeping bag for each person in our group. We each got in a sleeping bag, still wearing our winter coats. The temperature was in the upper thirties, but the wind was a steady 20-30 mph. We were nice and toasty and anyone that laughed at us thought differently by the start of the second quarter.

    I picked the wrong date, Picker. I actually have 1998 in my files (probably thanks in part to your research). Someone had talked about the Ben Davis program's relative futility from the wins and losses perspective prior to the arrival of Bob Wilbur. That's what brought up this discussion. Frankly, knowing what Pick the Picker has done to research not only BD's past, but the past of Central Indiana high school football, I find this disrespectful. Sorry Stax.

    Believe these teams still scrimmage each other. CP RB Gomez is a beast, but I'm sure the Penn defense will find a way to contain him and make someone else beat them. I think it will be a slug fest in the first half but Penn will eventually wear down the CP defense and win by at least 2 scores.

    Observations from South vs Martinsville and have seen broadcasts of Cathedral-South has SOME very good players but had gaps on defense and hurt many times on contain by mobile qb. Artesians not often known for a lot of team speed and would say that Cathedral has much more, which would emphasize the breakdowns, holes. South will have to be able to put up a good number of points and hope to get some unexpected stops/turnovers to have chance I would estimate. Now, if South had their whole compliment of players without the injuries, etc. Then, this may have been a much different game.

    I think they would seed before they up and reduce the field. I agree w/ your last comment. I think the current system is here to stay in both sports, especially basketball.

    I was wondering if this game and Terre Haute North vs CE might hurt the attendance for IU vs ISU? Not often the High School teams from either of these towns make it this deep in the playoffs even though both are pretty big underdogs. I would argue with the popularity of High School Football in general in the state why would IU schedule their first game of the year on a Friday?

    lol Michael will be the best QB you have seen all year believe that. He is easily one of the top underclassman in the state. I am not doubting your D, but i hope they are ready to contain this kid. if he decides to be hes a true dual threat kid. There WR are phyiscal kids so CB have to play big. it should be a good one though

I called some of my boyz down in the Ville....they tell the Clown, those Tigers are for real. My boyz have also watched the real Tigers play, and they say, we are in for a good day! So tip up your Tiger BL's and get ready for a great game! Orange & Black Tigers FOREVER --- Blue Tigers NEVER!!!

    I honestly have low expectations for the Lady Tigers this season. New head coach and coaching staff. With no disrespect to Coach Krebs who seems like a great guy and has brought some good energy to the program and community, he has a .426 winning percentage in 14 seasons. All 5 starters will be replaced. Last year, all 6 seniors who graduated accounted for 974 of the 1,192 points (82%) scored. Granted, the JV team was very good last year, but that seems to be the norm for most of the Tiger athletics programs. We'll see JV and Freshmen teams be extremely successful, and then when it comes to Varsity competition it fluctuates. It's only 1 game, but the Lady Tigers lost on Saturday to FW Bishop Luers 42-30 and only managed to score 10 points in the 2nd half. The Lady Tigers beat Luers (who went 7-16) last year 63-50. The Manchester game should be a good one tonight, as they are 2-0 on the young season but haven't played and probably won't play a team like Warsaw all season. Without knowing too much about the rest of the NLC and just basing it off last season and history of the programs, I'd have to say Warsaw finishes 3rd behind Northridge and NorthWood this season, and could even be 4th or worse depending on what is happening at Plymouth, Memorial and Wawasee.

    I recall a certain Hamilton County school club President citing club fees of $650.00 about 3-5 years ago for a sport requiring a lot of equipment - which no one seemed to blink at. A sport requiring much the same equipment as football...whatever that sport might be. In this club world future as regards football, my sense is that a coach might benevolently "guide" a kid to certain universities via their shoe contracts and that the club fee for "that" kid might (as in "ABSOLUTELY") be "waived"....plus a truly, truly nominal (lest there be any doubt...outside of the IRS) referral fee for the "coach". Travel and club soccer (men and women), girl's softball, etc., etc., would, no doubt, be as clean as a whistle. Boy's football, basketball and baseball.............well.......

    I think the drop in participation for pay for play is exaggerated. It comes down to fundraising. I've worked at some poor, rural schools. In some senses, we were pay to play because of camp fees and equipment fees. There were kids we knew did not have this money. But through fundraising efforts, we were able to raise the money for those kids to be able to participate anyway. Could it affect some? Sure. Will it be completely disastrous? Only if the coach is unwilling to work hard and lead fundraising efforts. BTW, I am NOT a proponent of pay to play.

    Just not gate receipts, but the whole 'pay to play' movement in government high school sports. Here is an example: https://www.a2schools.org/domain/1642 I can virtually guarantee that if the Pay to Participate fee at Frankfort High School was $200+ you would see participation plummet, most families simply do not have that kind of disposable income.

    Tipton's QB got cocky and got shut down easily? He's the most humble kid I've ever been around. He also had over 300 yards of offense that game and was hands down the best player on the field. Also, you clearly haven't seen WL play or even checked their scores. Whole different animal!

    Don’t disagree with the personnel being the same. However, the offensive approach and offensive play calling is night and day different this year, at least in my opinion. Everything is ultra-conservative. 3rd and long, we run draw or a route 4 yards from the first down marker. It’s almost as if IU is playing to have the defense win them the game. It’s a complete 180 from Wilson. Wilson was a riverboat gambler. It backfired more times than not, but you could be assured he was going to beat his opponent before he let them beat you. Case in point was the MSU game this year. IU leads 6-3 early in the 4th and is faced with a 4th and G from the 2. Allen and Co. kick a FG which I vehemently disagreed with. You’re a TD underdog on the road against a ranked team, win the ball game right there. Wilson 100% would have gone for it. Im sure there are more specific examples but to me the offensive approach is just night and day different.

    Just watched the game on youtube and Pioneer's o-line was incredibly fast coming out of their stances. I sincerely hope that Walker and Nic R. are not seriously injured. I feel Walker is the best center in Class A. I noticed Pioneer was using him to pull block during the game which isn't something you see everyday at the high school level. I felt Pioneer had more depth at the line positions this year in comparison to the 2015 team for example, and now that might be sternly tested. I have no problem with the time out at the end of the game. If I was a LCC coach I wouldn't worry about trying to get to the end zone I would want my guys to end their season on a clean properly executed play.

    LC Was coming off a big W vs WC and got caught looking ahead to Center Grove whether they admit it or not this happens with HS teams, the win vs WC proved they were a top tier team in the MIC and they got a little over confident I think. I have seen Fisher live and some film on Pike, I think Fishers especially the 2nd half of the season is more physical of a team than Pike. Like I said I think BD comes out a little over confident (and for good reason) and a little sluggish (which they have done before) and I think this has a surprising close score at half maybe like Fishers only down 7 or 10 points. I agree that BD will overwhelm Fishers thats what they do and this will be a blowout in the second half. However, if it is a route from the first 2 min of the game I wouldn't (nor anyone on here) be surprised. BD has earned that right to be the class 6A favorite it is up to the rest of the remaining 6A teams in the state to prove otherwise. Halftime score BD 21 Fishers 13 Final BD 54 Fishers 20

    Football is all about matchups. I think Pike matches up better with BD than Fishers even though they beat them.

    i can tell you now if LB has problems in their secondary this will be a long game for them. Memorial QB is legit and best in the conference. if he get going with his legs too. Memorial wins this game. Mem D is also very very stout against Run and Pass. I know LB is always a force. just curious to see how LB matches up with Memorials athletes. DO NOT FALL ASLEEP ON THE RUNNING BACK HE WILL MAKE YOU PAY

    I won't say that CG will win, just because their play has been inconsistent. However, if CG does lose by more than 1 score, I will be very surprised. The only team to do that this year has been Ben Davis. No matter the outcome, I hope this is another classic between the two schools.
