    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.

    Congrats to Lowell and good luck the rest of the way. We just had too many plays where we didn't execute and left point on the field. Can't do that in a tight game like that one.

    I really wish you would stop giving other programs bulletin board material. Any given Friday... Please let the Giants prepare without them having to worry about what others will post to fire up other teams.

    I'm not an official, but that one seems pretty obvious. I didn't see a block. The Carmel punter kicked it and the Snider player ran into the kickers leg. I do admit its very bad luck for Snider how it ended up and was not intentional on the players part, but on the face of it from video certainly to this fan it seems like a proper call. I'd love to hear bobrefs take.

    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!!!

    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.

    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?

    Sagarin nonsense? What way would you use to compare teams and conferences? If past history, results on the field, your eyes & Sagarin ratings don't tell you that Indy teams are dominant, then I don't know what does? Sure they can be beaten on occasion...anybody can. The 6th place team from the conference got beat in the regional last night. The 3rd place team won the regional. You can't take mistakes and penalties out of the equation. You do those things against MIC teams and you're probably going to lose. FW Snider is a great program, so is Penn. If they played that type of competition week in and week out, they would be right there at the top of the MIC.

    France is 11. If the definition is lifting and feet off ground I agree, but it looks to me he just twisted and rolled with feet off ground. JMO, I guess it could go both ways. He didn't pick kid up and slam him into ground.

    Two surprises last night. Avon beating Center Grove being one of them. I agree with Goldrush, the MIC looked vulnerable and might not be as good as everyone thinks. The other surprise was Carmel beating Snider. I really thought this would be a 3 or 4 touchdown game, and for a minute, I thought it was going to end up that way. As much as I want to say "great job" to Carmel, I just can't bring myself to it. This game was more about Snider mistakes and pitiful officiating. To even think Snider had a chance with seconds to play, considering the amount of penalties and mistakes, just goes to show you how much talent this Snider team had. I will say this about Carmel. They are well coached, the kids have heart, and they played with class last night. Unfortunately though, Penn's toughest competition will be sitting at home next Friday night instead of competing on the football field.

    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.

    Note * I said 'if' east is as good as they were last year. I have not seen east this season . They seem to be doing the same things they were doing last year. But this cathedral team for whatever reason did not impress tonight. If east can contain their running game east should win . I saw east up close last year when they played at bhss in the semi-state , i saw east back 10 years or so ago vs. cathedral and the east program is noticeably better than they were 10 years ago.

    Your not making anyone angry , but usually when people make predictions ,they have some knowledge of all teams involved in the current season . Just because you seen a team on film from prior years, that has nothing to do with this year and at that point your just guessing . You stated that Zionsville has a tougher schedule , do they have bigger , stronger , faster athletes than Michigan City ? Michigan City just beat a pretty good Laporte team and Barely lost to 6A #5 Valporaiso . I won't pick City to come out of the North because I know nothing about Zionsville's team .
