    MD did indeed play @ Danville in 2000 Semi-State. I can tell you from that experience, you will not find a better bunch of fans & hosts. Everyone we met was a class act and went out of their way to be friendly and helpful from the ticket takers to the concessions folks. Mater Dei was fortunate to come away with the win and at the end of the game, the entire Danville team formed two lines and made an exit for the Mater Dei team. Danville held their helmets up while MD players walked by and they congratulated the entire team. I have never seen a classier display of sportsmanship on a football field and will never forget it. Best of luck to the Tigers next week. Wish I could be there but it will have to be in spirit only. Hopefully this game will be streamed online as well. Anyone with info, pls post.

    As a big fan of HS football (have attended tourney games at Beech Grove, Franklin Central, Cathedral/Tech, Greenwood past 4 weeks), I'd love to be able to go to 2 or 3 Semistate games next weekend. Heck, 6 of the 12 games next Friday are within an hour of my house. And with the NCAA encroaching upon HS football with televised football games every Friday night & MANY basketball openers last night, fall Friday nights do not belong to HS football anymore. I am aware that a few tourney games are played on Saturdays due to distance (example: Ev Memorial-Lawrenceburg today). So how can we convince the IHSAA to work with all of the member schools to institute a 2-year trial with a staggered schedule for Regional & Semistate football? It would be great for neutral fans & coaches/players of area teams. I sat near some Roncalli players on a bye week at Beech Grove & some Whiteland kids at Greenwood. Most importantly, it would make it a lot easier for visiting fans to make a long drive (sometimes with a time zone switch) for a Saturday game instead of a Friday night game. And since the IHSAA gets the gate receipts for Reg/SS/State, it could benefit their coffers too. Wouldn't this be FANTASTIC next weekend? Avon at Ben Davis -- Fri 7pm. Columbus East at Cathedral -- Sat 2pm. Penn at Carmel -- Sat 7pm. I would absolutely go to all 3 of those games. Here's my idea. Keep the Sectional as-is since extended travel is relatively rare. But at the Regional & Semistate levels, split games into 3 time slots: Fri night, Sat early afternoon, Sat night. They already do something like this for Semistate basketball games so why not football? After a team advances & knows their next opponent/game location, each team submits their time slots ranked 1-2-3 to the IHSAA by Sunday morning. At that point, the IHSAA football committee gets together to determine the following week's schedule based upon each team's time slot rankings, travel distance, days between games for each team, nearby tourney games & nearby college games. On Monday, the IHSAA announces the day/time of each game for the following weekend. I think the positives would outweigh any potential negatives that could be viewed as an unfair advantage (1 extra day to rest & prepare for 1 team over the other, the opportunity to scout in person if you win on Friday & your next opponent plays on Saturday). Obviously, the football committee would need to get buy-in & approval to try this out & agreement from all member schools to accept the committee's scheduling decisions.

    What? East Central was in semistate last year and state the year before that.

    Agree 100% tango! Win or lose, respect is the name of the game, Memorial is a classy quality football team, and so is Lawrenceburg!! My hat is off to them for having a great football season... best to Memorial next week!

    I counted and there are only about 20 high school officials who work small college football on Saturdays. I estimate there are about 800 officials eligible to work the playoffs. 20 of them not being available wouldn't create a problem for the IHSAA. Yes, there is a shortage but that does not affect the last 4 rounds of the tournament where only 48 crews are needed. 7 of the 20 I mentioned are referees on their high school crews with 3 of them working this week and all eligible for next week. There are several from the remaining group eligible to work regional or semi-state. It would be challenging for them and affecting them more than the teams or IHSAA. Semi-state gets more tricky because it's the first round of the college playoffs. But those officials aren't available Friday or Saturday because they have to travel on Friday to be at the game site. There could be other officials who have non-football conflicts on Saturdays, but you would probably have to make yourself available either day if you are eligible for those rounds or be ready to find a replacement for your crew on those days. Bottom line. Officiating is not a reason to not do this.

    I like reading BobRef's opinion and really respect all that he has done for the game and his judgement is usually spot on. I disagree on this one 1000%. Once the kicker dropped the ball and started to move to his right it was not certain that he was going to kick it. The defender coming in is trying to tackle him like he would a runner. I've asked several officials and everyone that I've asked says "no call". It is a bang bang call and in real time you have to make a decision but once he drops the ball like that and starts to move it's gonna have to be really late to be a foul. This doesn't, to me look like a foul.

    Just keep this in mind.. YOUR interpretation of what happened is not at all relevant when it comes to the officiating on the field. It is the officials assigned and entrusted with the interpretation (and judgment) of the rules that matter...ONLY. Not trying to sound crass, but the tet a tet, that seems to "want" to happen really isn't needed. Almost 100% of the time when a flag is thrown, at least 50% of the fans will disagree. It kinda goes with the territory. Remember, at this point of the season.... You are seeing what is judged to be (by schools and administrators) the best of the best when it comes to officials in this state.

    Hope the best for Greenwood, but I watched the Roncalli game last year and the Evansville Central game this year. Playing EC is like getting in a bar fight against a sledgehammer. Ev. Central was a pretty big team, but EC just steam rolled them on the ground.

    Speculating on a transfer of a 16 year old HS kid is dumb and negligent, especially when there’s no merit to it. He could potentially be ruled ineligible to play varsity next year as a transfer would clearly be for “athletic” purposes and sitting out a year could be damning to his recruitment. Cathedral also graduates a D1 RB and a D1 and AA lineman this year so wouldn’t be surprised at all if Cathedral opens up the playbook. Stop throwing out outlandish statements and hoping they stick.

    Well said! Looking forward to a good game. The thing that I think Cathedral will be okay on is conditioning, over the past 3-4 weeks especially last week against THN, the uptempo East offense had THN’s defense sprinting to positions as East was already hiking the ball. East is usually waiting for the referree to put the ball down and is basically instantly hiking it. I saw the referee back peddling and almost tripping over himself trying to get in position sometimes. East isn’t going to do anything special, you will get a few passes here and there, maybe a little more if Cathedral gets a lead. East will run their normal offense that they have ran all year, a lot of QB reads, and RB running off tackles. QB Major runs very well, and avoids a lot of sacks when it looks like he might be caught. As for the East defense, they would actually rather have Cathedral run the ball. Yes, it’s Cathedral’s strong point, but the run D is also East’s strong point. East is much weaker on the Pass D. It has improved over the last 5-6 weeks tho but not enough to say I would feel comfortable.

    That is Running into the kicker....should be 5 yards and replay 4th down. The contact was not to the plant leg, and that is a key in roughing or running into......

    . . I can remember my father being transferred from Homewood ,IL. when I went to Homewood-Flossmoor HS, to Ft Wayne, IN back in the mid '70s. . My father wanted to make sure we moved into a school district that had all the academic and sports cultures we were looking for. . Ft Wayne is a city that has many people relocating in and out of. . I thank him for loving me enough to do this, not to mention he enjoys being part of a community that really cares about maintaining a high standard of success on and off the field.. and beyond school. . If I was being relocated to Ft Wayne, with kids still in school, Snider is where I'd want to send my children. .I'm sure there are others out there that feel the same..

    You realize that high school football was ALWAYS played during the daylight for most of its history. What is good about a fan base traveling in the dark on a school and work day to a site 100 miles away Why would you not want to play Saturday afternoon...in situations like Lowell-Dwenger or Carmel-Penn?

    never heared that phrase and I been familiar with Kokomo all my life... Kokomo does have a big cow they idolize and I strongly suggest anyone from Michigan City coming to the game arrive a little early and check it out...its not far from school and it is really something to see !

    *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.

    So what? Cathedral’s schedule has absolutely no bearing on where they are classified. Cathedral could play the Colts every week or Broad Ripple every week and it still wouldn’t change the fact that Cathedral is a 4A school playing in 5A due to the success factor. Cathedral did not accumulate the necessary points to stay in 6A. Cathedral is not the only school under this criteria either.

    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.

    The east side holds 2,500. That was our side the last time you all came to Town. This year we switch sides to the west side. It holds 2,000. Be safe driving to Fort Wayne. Good luck to the Red Devils. Where can one find video of some of your games? You can see some of ours on YouTube. Search for summitcity sports. I love to study film before i give my 2 cents.

    Regardless if you love or hate them, you have to give them credit. They could schedule all indiana teams, weak teams, etc... and likely go undefeated or only lose a few games each year. But they don’t, they test themselves.

    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.

    I looked at the video. That is a dead ball personal foul for unnecessary roughness 100% of the time. Keep in mind that one of the specific examples of a “defenseless player,” is “A runner already in the grasp of a tackler and whose forward progress has been stopped.” Thus, what we have here is a defenseless player getting his head slammed into the turf. Easy call.
  42. 1 point
    You said it was "not intentional." Doesn't that mean it should have been called "running" into the kicker and not "roughing?" If they called running into the kicker, Snider would have gotten the ball back, I believe.

    It just reminded me of Major League Baseball umpires who really think fans pay to see them with their antics. Joe West, Las Diaz, Angel Hernandez come to mind. The game is suppose to be for the kids with officials mediating to keep things fair and objective at all times. if anyone really thinks that players, coaches, and to a lessor extent fans want to see a micro managed game with a slow pace of play because of multiple marginal penalty calls then they are sadly mistaken. Again, Carmel won congrats to them, no sour grapes from me on that, my issue was with the crappy quality of officiating and inconsistent at best enforcement of the rules. If a punt is partially blocked, running into the kicker can’t be called. Holding can’t be called on one play and then you let a holding go that results in a long run when literally the offensive lineman tackles a defender trying to make a tackle. When a player is clearly on the ground and a defender dives into a defenseless player helmet first, last I checked that was spearing. No, all these calls were not against Snider so save that argument. As I have said from the beginning, it was a poorly officiated game for BOTH sides.

    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.

    Romeo and Garland both are looking more and more like IU may be at the top of their favorites, or at least their parents preferred choice. Crossing my fingers IU can pull in both great prospects with hoosier ties.
