    man this looks like it could be a 6A schedule and the Irish are just a tiny 4A school. How ever do they survive.

    Based on the Lowell folks on the other thread, we may as well just hand them the trophy! This Dwenger team does’t have Any D1 talent in the senior class. Defense is good. Offense not so much. I’m sure we will give it our best shot! Glad we don’t have to travel for our “beat down”. Have you all booked your rooms in Indy as you said you would?

    The Mic as a whole not as dominant as so many Indy people think? They may be more dominant than ever. Using the Sagarin ratings, every single team in the MIC is ranked higher than every team but 1 from the NIC & the SAC combined. Since the 6A class has been around, 7 of the 8 teams that have participated in the final game, has been a member of the MIC. With all 4 champions being from the MIC. There is a good chance both teams in the 6A final this year will be MIC teams. Using Sagarin ratings, the MIC's 6th place team is in the 6A semi-state this year. Using conference standings, the #6 team made it to the regionals this year. Nobody is even close to the MIC right now. The only conference that you can even think about comparing to the MIC is the Hoosier Crossroads....another Indy area conference. As long as those 2 conferences are playing each other and making each other better, the Indy teams will continue to dominate the state tournament.

    It is an impressive schedule. However you listed 6 teams, they lost to 5 of them. Is it really that impressive? Obviously Cathedral has an outstanding program (one of the best in the state), but I’m not going to pat them on the back for scheduling tough teams and losing.

    I’ve now looked at the punt play. That’s roughing, not running into, the kicker. If you’re going to hit the kicker while attempting to block the punt, you better get the ball, too. Here, although the contact is on the kicking leg, which is not considered as serious as contact on the plant leg, the severity of the contact warrants a personal foul. The kicker never did anything to give the impression he was going to do anything other than kick the ball. That makes it roughing. Yeah. And we should make the QBs wear tutus. And while you’re at it, get off of my lawn.

    What Central fans and team had no idea of what they were in for playing EC, since this was only about their second regional they have played in. Past Reitz teams and fans knew exactly what they were in for. I have watched EC play Reitz in the regional since the late 80's. The SIAC is a good conference but there is no team in the SIAC year in and year out as physical as EC. They will battle you till the whistle blows and if you don't keep your composure they will get in your heads, just like they did last night. With Central being the worst disciplined team I have ever seen in the SIAC it reared it's ugly head last night. Bottom line the long drive had nothing to do with Central getting beat last night. They would have gotten the 5 or 6 unsportsmanlike penalties if they were just driving the 10 min drive to the westside of Evansville. And to answer the question about Coach Owens being the new AD, this Reitz fan is scratching his head. Central has the most athletic team the SIAC has seen in a long time and maybe forever but there is a black mark on their program right now after their antics from this year. Just one persons opinion.

    The only mention of Indy Hotels, was by an angry women from NP, who posted a few rants and disappeared. I don’t think you will find any disrespect for BD amongst the Lowell fan base. Should be a good game. What is BD style of play?

    Has nothing to do with the 2 conferences “playing each other and making each other better.” Has everything to do with resources, facilities, demographic, populus, talent pool, importance of football within the schools, etc, etc, etc. No one in the state of Indiana outside of the Indy metroplex can compete with these FACTors (Penn may be the only exception). MIC dominance will never change and it’s not really that difficult to understand why that is the case.

    This semistate matchup reminds me of 2000, when the Giants hosted Center Grove in the same round. Going into that particular game, the Trojans had never beaten Ben Davis (at the time CG had been 0-4 vs. BD). Very few people outside of Johnson County's White River Township thought that Center Grove would beat Ben Davis. But the Trojans defied the odds and beat the Giants 30-28 on a cold night at Ben Davis' Giants Stadium. Fast forward to 2017. I'm sure very few people outside of Hendricks County's Washington Township (where Avon is located) are giving the Orioles an opportunity to beat the Giants. Avon is in the football semistate for the sixth time in school history. Oriole fans are fed up with the "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride" talk about their football team. I'll tell you something: Avon will come out firing on all cylinders. The Giants cannot underestimate this Oriole team; otherwise Avon will wind up with its first semistate championship in football, just like Center Grove did in 2000. Speaking of the 2011 game, the Orioles committed five costly turnovers, which led to 24 points by Ben Davis. The 64-41 Ben Davis win is the highest-scoring game in the history of Ben Davis Football.

    Also goes to show you that the Mic as a whole is not as dominant as so many Indy people think they are . Usually the Mic has 1 , sometimes 2 dominant teams . This game and Avon pounding Center Grove is proof of that . This game had nothing to do with Indy metro area competition yada yada yada .It had more to do with Snider self destructing with Mistakes and Penalties .

    *highest rated skill position player. Emil Ekiyor and McGrone from LC are the two highest rated players in the state but would guess they don’t have a shot at winning. My guess is that it goes to Reese Taylor from BD.

    I know that Danville is undefeated at this juncture 11-0 I believe, and as you say they gave Chatard a good spanking, should be a good one! Wishing the Blue and White Tigers the best (hopefully) the next two weeks. Just wondering who everyone on this board that cares about this game thinks will probably win it? I won't pick a winner, but I'll predict a final spread of less than 10 points! JMO.

    Claim the enrollment excuse? It’s the IHSSA that classifies schools by enrollment, not Cathedral. And Cathedral is still playing a class up. If you don’t like how teams are classified find another solution. But stop claiming that Cathedral is using it as an excuse, they aren’t even playing 4A.

    And to those of you that support the teams not playing in this game, that were so deeply offended by my post earlier in the week, I’m sorry you didn’t like it. But you have to admit I was pretty spot on in that pre-game assessment. At least you got the satisfaction of hitting the dislike button. Got me good.

    Trojans battled last night. D was without 3 key starters (Daming, Hays, and Gephart) that impacted DLine, LB's and secondary, yet never quit. (Not blaming loss on that as Avon was so explosive with best throwing QB I remember this season. Receivers were outstanding as well). Hope some of the incoming seniors and juniors dedicate themselves during the offseason and step it up with a chip on their shoulder. This team won a sectional and that's not a given or a walk in the park. Congrats Trojans on a fine season!! Congrats to the O's on a fantastic regional championship. Good luck next week!!!

    Excellent question, and one that always results in lots of debate in the officiating community. By rule, a player does not become a “kicker” until he legally kicks the ball. Once he becomes a kicker, however, he is entitled to protection until he’s had a chance to recover and defend himself, or until he moves to participate in the play. Under the high school rules, it is important to keep in mind two things: (1) the onus is always on the defense to avoid contact; (2) if contact can be avoided, it must be avoided. So, to answer your specific question, the player is a runner, and remains a runner until he legally kicks the ball. Then his status changes to “kicker.” Contact against such a player is a foul, unless the contact is unavoidable because “it is not reasonably certain a kick will be made.” When I worked the referee position, a guideline I used most of the time when I observed contact on the kicker was “was he trying to block a kick, or was he trying to tackle a runner?” If the contact resulted from an attempt to block the kick, it’s pretty tough to say it was “not reasonably certain the kick was going to be made.”

    Congrats to Eastbrook for advancing to the Semi-State. Congrats to Mississinewa for a great season. Many thought they would never get out of sectional and to take a very good Greenwood team to wire was impressive. Greenwood players said that Mississinewa was the best team that they had played all year. Coach Funk said "They got the respect of Indianapolis football tonight. They know who Mississinewa football is now." Mississinewa advanced starting several sophomore's and junior's. The future is bright for Mississinewa.

    Good question. If anything, it should have been a "running into the kicker" penalty, not "roughing." Again, another of the many questionable calls that extended Carmel's life last night.

    This is more a question, rather than bashing the crew. There was play where Snider was given a pentalty for roughing the kicker after Carmel’s punter dropped the ball, then regained possession and attempted to punt the ball. At what point does he become a runner?

    Is France #11? Did he not pick the kid up off his feet and slam him into the turf? It sure looked that way on video and if so, that is a penalty.

    The more I think about this game the more pissed off I get. I thought Snider was penalized a lot, but Carmel was actually penalized more. Carmel had 13 penalties and Snider had 11 penalties. I would say half of the penalties for both teams were hogwash. I can tell you both coaching staffs were upset with the officiating. While I will not blame the Snider loss on the officials, I will say this was a horribly officiated game for both teams. Very sad to see in any game much less a regional championship game.

    Are the underlying digs and snide rude comments really necessary on a Sophomore QB? I've seen several snide comments from you and its immature at times. I don't see anything positive out of degrading backhanded comments. Support your team. Brag how you feel your teams big o-line will play or how you feel your team will win. Heck spill your dislike of the opposing team or even make your predictions. Just remember there are 15-18 year old kids playing and there is absolutely no need in making degrading backhanded comments about players.

    Too many athletes on the FW Knights side for Mishawaka Knights to match. I expect a big game from one of the Luers RB or maybe even both as long as Coach Lindsay stays committed to the run. Last week Luers contained Anderson-Drew and Morrow. Tonight they’ll have to keep Hemmingway in check. If Marian is forced to throw, this game might not be close. Luers by 14.
