    We played in Illinois this year and 25 sec clock. GIVE ME 40 ALL DAY EVERYDAY and TWICE ON SUNDAYS

    Disagree. There are plenty of "old dogs" still out there coaching with success. This comment is specific to your post and not a knock on Kennedy. I heartily congratulate him on a career full of making a difference for student athletes.

    Congratulations to Coach Kennedy on a fantastic coaching career. No doubt that those who were privileged to play for him learned many valuable life lessons. He held people accountable and had higher expectations for players and his staff than they had for themselves. I wish him the best of luck in retirement. His run from 2003 to 2009 is nothing short of impressive.

    As a coach I like the 40 second clock. I think that it helps with rhythm offensively from a play calling stand point because you have a set amount of time that is constant between each play. In the past, you would have some crews who would be able to set the ball quickly or vice versa and as a coach you would have to adjust like-wise. Now, the spot of the ball is almost an after thought.

    His last year at North Judson, in week 3 I think I remember seeing 20-23 some players in uniform 9-12th grade. His style wins if buy in happens. Lowell bought in. Bloomington South, Judson, and now FC seems like they didn't. Lowell still buys in.

    As always, a great representation of Indy area players (with a sprinkle of northern IN)....

    I don't see how adapting to the culture and kids you are coaching is a bad thing? Obviously there is a line between player and coach, but just because it isn't the same as it was in the "old school" days doesn't mean it isn't successful or productive.

    Great list, but I am willing to bet that some of the names on that list are already in ideal situations, and are not interested in moving anywhere.

    Actually DT teacher salaries when adjusted for inflation are less today then they were in the 1990's. Also, because of the New rules put in place by the state, a new teacher in Indiana will take 25 years to double their salary, where it used to take 15. While some stipends are very fair, most of them if adjusted to hourly wage are awful ( mine adjust to hourly is around 15 Cents/ hr). if you think Teachers are over paid in Indian in this day and age, you are horribly misinformed.

    Like Coach Nowlin said - many of the Evansville schools played in Kentucky week 2. It was noticeably different in a bad way. Close games, blowouts, high scoring, low scoring, you name it. The game is more consistent, has a better flow, and it makes figuring out end of game scenarios much safer and easier to figure out (unless your Southridge... lol). I would HATE for Indiana to go away from a 40 second clock. We may not be able to figure out a playoff system, but at least we can get the game clock management right.

    Stars don't mean anything. Most of the NFL's best were 3 stars or lower. Kentucky had two guys make all SEC last year that was a 2 star(Brebeuf's Jon Toth) and a kid that had no stars(Josh Allen). It's funny how guys get more stars when Alabama/USC/Texas/Ohio State/LSU is recruiting them. Nebraska has always needed a Husker to fix the program after Zolich got fired for winning 9 games to unify the fan base. Frost is exactly the guy for the program esp at this time when it seems to need it the most. And Frost is one of the best coaching prospects in college football after taking a winless UCF team and turning them into an undefeated one in less than 4 years.

    How do we know this is the reason? He has been coaching a long time. He has had success in many seasons. Maybe he just wanted to call it a career and do/be something besides a football coach. Just because someone doesnt coach until they die does not mean they are unable to adapt with the kids along the way.

    You know who else will buy in around the area? East Central. He'd be a great addition to the coaching staff if he wants to go along for the ride next year.

    Can't teach an old dog new tricks. I doubt Kennedy was doing any flying chest bumps with his players or his assistants during games this season. He just doesn't fit in anymore. Out to pasture.

    Heard an opposing coach say they felt this was the best team that Coach Hart has had while at Linton. That is saying something when you consider the 2012 - 2013 team played for the state championship.

    Part 2 - #2. I'm amazed at the number of fans (and probably HS QB's as well) who don't understand the difference between the NCAA/NFL rules and NFHS. If I've heard someone in the stands yell "He was out of the tackle box!!!" once, I've heard it 1,000 times. #6 - I don't see that as being a problem. If I'm not mistaken, isn't the spike attempt required to bring the ball above the waist before spiking downward? It seems like that is rarely enforced, probably because of the uproar it would cause. But I've seen plenty of HS and college QB's spike attempts look more like dribbling a basketball.

    I saw on the Twitter's today. Someone suggesting taking that Crossroads Classic and getting more involved: Valpo/Ball St/IUPUI/ IPFW to go along with PU/IU/Butler/ND Make it a 2 day tournament style. FUN!!!

    As a FC fan, I can tell you there were a number of kids that quit throughout the year. Heck, some quit before the season started because of his style. Now, is that the reason he quit? I don't know. But I think it's a good assumption.

    I love the 40 second clock. I think if some other states adopted it they would quickly see the benefits. I'd like to see it permanent here.

    So it really has nothing to do with them being short or undersized. If you say what you mean, you will avoid looking like an uninformed message board gnome. To each his own. I suppose some still get some jollies by posting drivel.

    Come on down Wes Gillman! It's a shame. He was demanding and old school and probably hadn't changed from his Lowell days but he had a number of kids quit on him during the year. My guess it was a combination of the admin asking him to step down / things are just different at FC. He's a very good coach when kids decide they want to buy in.

    If I'm the athletic director at Lawrence Central, I can see that my football program is on the crest of breaking thru to elite status in Class 6A. I am in my principal's office and pushing hard for the resources to recruit and sign the strongest possible candidate I can find to take my program to the next level. I am focusing my in state efforts on the following group of high quality, accomplished coaches, in no particular order : Kyle Ralph / 60-4 at New Palestine - 5A is nice, but 6A is King. Nick Hart / 67-9 at Gibson Southern - ready for his first shot with the big dogs. Phil Mason / 16-8 at Michigan City - 129 - 69 overall - Region guy gets his shot in Indy Kyle Enright / 17-5 at Decatur Central - Nice program. Develops athletes/players. I want to talk to him. Shane Fry / 53-12 at West Lafayette - Tremendous success at the small school level. Can he translate his success with the big schools? Scott Marsh / 8-2 at Roncalli - I want to talk to a PP to get a different POV. Jake Gilbert / 50-33 at Westfield - solid program builder. Hangs tough against bigger schools. That's important in The MIC. What do I (LC) have to offer : * Deep roster with some Big Ten quality talent * Great size and speed, as good as any in the state * Excellent facilities * Deep staff resources * Administrative support - they want a winner! * Excellent ties to college recruiting If I can get one of the guys on the above list, my program will be positioned to push forward towards its ultimate goal.

    You are neither local or region (now). Have you spoken to people in the know presently at Highland?

    The fact that Purdue was able to hang on to Brohm is a huge win for Boiler football. The west is very soft and PU can be competing with Wisconsin and Iowa for a division title as soon as next year. I see Brohm hanging on at PU for 3 to 5 years, then off to the NFL.

    *offensive talent. Unfortunately Sudfeld, Lattimer, Coleman, Howard, Spriggs etc didn’t get to play with a defense coached by Tom Allen. There’s 3 aspects to the game of football. Doesn’t matter how good your offense is if you can’t stop anybody. And again you’re speaking out of your a**. IU is on the cusp of a top 40 recruiting class under Allen this year with the majority of the top talent being OL and a RB. They aren’t short, undersized, and undermanned, they are simply inexperienced. When you graduate 3 seniors (1 being an AA) you’re bound to have a down year in the trenches.

    In regards to finishing the semester, year, etc. The previous HFB coach at a local school left at thanksgiving break. He took a job in the private sector. Said school hired a long term sub. Nobody's business but the teacher and the schools.

    Yep. I was a Junior that year. One of the guys in our group was was from the Bay Area. To this day I hear stories of them flying out to see his family in San Fran and driving an RV down the coast to eventually setting up next to the Rose Bowl.

    I'm going to have to call BS on you here. Your quote was: Peebles has a reputation as a builder. There's nothing to build at Cathedral. It's a maintenance job at best. I am sure he will do well, but there were greater rewards and more personal satisfaction to be gained by seeing the job thru at Lawrence Central. I feel bad for those LC people. They've been jilted, after making a major investment. Rightfully, they escorted him off the premises immediately after he delivered the news. Now, maybe you "jumped to a conclusion" and hit post before inserting the words, "In my opinion" or perhaps inserting the words "should have" in front of "escorted", but you didn't.

    Wow, DT, wow. You think he's fleeing LC because of pressure, by taking Cathedral. Obviously no pressure there. Do you even listen to yourself?

    Assuming that is accurate, that does not bode well for IU's front 7. Because that group of "misfit toys" blew open holes all day for their RB's. 200+ yds rushing for Mr. Jones. Perhaps Purdue's OL coach is the real deal.

    Coach Peebles' move certainly goes against the recent trend of PP coaching retirements or moves to the public side. My immediate reaction was surprise and then disappointment, for the reasons I mentioned earlier. In MY view, a public school state championship in 6A at LC is the more impressive accomplishment than any state title Peebles will win at Cathedral, regardless of class. Peebles has a reputation as a builder. There's nothing to build at Cathedral. It's a maintenance job at best. I am sure he will do well, but there were greater rewards and more personal satisfaction to be gained by seeing the job thru at Lawrence Central. I feel bad for those LC people. They've been jilted, after making a major investment. Rightfully, they escorted him off the premises immediately after he delivered the news.

    The grammars Police/Nazi's are out in force, nitpicking on a minor statement. This thread is a prime display of the disdain & vitriol many of this forum have for individuals with strong opinions that don't mirror the mainstream. I guess they would prefer that the GID be nothing more than a naval-gazing echo chamber.

    The Ole Dog Changed His Offence, You know the kind that Kids want to run now days. Team Numbers are down and so is the Enrollment Millennials are a different breed. You do have to coach different of they will not respond. Can one put the blame on them...NO AC in every home, Internet, Cell phones, Computers, Why would a kid want to go out side and sweat work hard. Now the Concussion deal has parents worried. NFL has changed ( the games are boring ) Coaching in an area where you are not from is hard when the community will not open up to your ways. Franklin County ..... UNIQUE to say the least
