    That was a great game by 2 great teams. East would've easily rolled New Prairie as we did. It was a pleasure watching both teams. Highest regard for the high consistent high level of play from the East program. My kid was the senior RB for New Pal on that team, only time I've seen him smile coming off the field of any game ever. Lol. I think there's a realistic shot of a title game matchup this year. Good luck to East this year, here's hoping we meet at Lucas Oil!!

    Felt weird not playing you guys last year after we'd played each other the four previous years. The winner of that game ended up in the state championship each time. Maybe we can make up for it and meet up for the state championship this year. The series is tied 2-2 and both teams are 1-1 against the other at home and 1-1 against the other on the road. Maybe game 5 on a neutral field would make the perfect rubber match.

    The problem with a qualification format is that there would be arguments for why, hypothetically speaking, a 3-6 Pike team deserves to be in over a 5-4 Crown Point team. The argument for Pike is that they play an extremely tough schedule because they're in the best conference in the state. The argument for Crown Point is that they were over .500 and won the games put in front of them. Do we really want to put ourselves in that situation? I don't.

    This isn't just a football issue - participation in many sports has dropped to the point where schools that once fielded three teams now field just a V/JV. I was the last freshman girls basketball coach our school had - 10 years ago. Numbers have dropped thanks to specialization and impatience (if I can be varsity in Sport A as a sophomore but won't be varsity in Sport B until I'm a senior, I'm going to specialize in Sport A. Back in the day, I'd play both).

    With Indiana being a bball state, it could well be the mentality that you have a basketball game for every one football starting team that doesn't take the field ... so there's less love for the idea of anything other than "traditional football." On the other hand, in a football-first state like Texas, the idea is to find any and every way to play football ... thus the affinity for less-than-traditional football.

    If they cannot field a full varsity team and are that young, out of respect to their opponents they need to cancel their varsity schedule and play a JV season. This stinks for the seniors, but at the same time what about their opponents that will not be able to schedule an opponent on weeks notice. On Caston's away games the home schools will lose gate and concession revenue and the home players are robbed of a game. Caston's situation is unfortunate but they shouldn't be allowed to drag other teams down with them.

    Good stuff here from Jon Gruden. "We love high school football and you know I think it’s smart for everybody at this level, pro football, NFL, to give back to youth football. We’ve got a problem I think in this country. The game is under siege by a lot of people who don’t think it’s a safe game. They don’t think it’s a good game anymore and I think that’s hogwash. We’ve got to encourage kids to play, get the benefits of being on a team, and try to support these programs because they’re not getting much support anymore. We want these kids to come out, see some of the guys they look up to, get some autographs and get excited about their season,” said Gruden. Gruden was then asked if he believed the pro game was affected by attitudes toward youth football, and if he felt fewer young people were getting into football. “I don’t know. I have a strong opinion on that. I just drive around the streets and I don’t see kids playing in the yards like they used to. So, that’s for another day. I just want to encourage kids, if they do play football, you’re going to learn about mental and physical toughness and teamwork and sportsmanship and accountability and all the qualities that make a young man a man,” he said.

    What I'm telling you is that I'd rather the players of those teams decide whether it's worth it or not. They're the ones playing the games.

    Seed the top 2, put them in opposite brackets and ping pong the rest.

    I agree FT, seedlings Sectionals, while.not perfect, would solve the big problem you describe. But even if the seeding is imperfect, a team who was maybe seeded lower than they should have been can prove it because they are in. A team who is wrongfully excluded under a qualifier system can do nothing but play another meaningless regular season game. Big difference...

    Doesn't matter to me what type of scheme you run, as long as you do so with efficiency, are technically sound, and play to the strength of your personnel. Heritage Hills ran double tight bone for years, and they did it very well. They also had some creative wrinkles, were technically sound, and would make you pay if you weren't. So no, I have no problem with whatever offense. Experience against NC says that is not the case......

    if Caston did the right thing for all involved and cancelled their season, the teams in the GSSC could fill in for their varsity games. Or maybe Caston and Noll could just play every Friday night.

    Why aren’t there 8 man or 6 man teams? My guess is that there is a round ball that only requires 5 players that draws too much attention in Indiana. And it can be played year round as well.

    I will also add that Pioneer has been there before, and it can be turned around with time. In the fall of '88 Pioneer had 19 players on the roster - just 3 seniors - started 4/5 freshmen - and were not able to compete with other varsity teams while going 0-fer. I was one of the seniors. It was not a fun season at all.

    Best argument ever against seeding. Seeding would kill any remaining competitive balance left in the tournament. Outside of possibly the first round sectionals, bad idea.

    High school basketball absolutely does have a success factor in Indiana. Every sport with classes does. Baseball, softball, volleyball, soccer, etc. The only sports that don’t are the one class sports (wrestling, track and field, etc.) because there isn’t a class to bump to.

    Chatard had roughly 45 boys on the Freshmen team last year. Typically, they seem to run in the 30s to low 40s. Typical Freshmen class will probably range between 80-90 boys. Frankly, Freshmen teams allow for a smoother transition from Jr. High to HS WITH your classmates versus being mixed in with Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors since there is no separation between JV and Varsity in practice.

    The only thing I disagree with is the nudging of Gene Smith. The NCAA is paying a LOT of attention to OSU athletics. There are multiple issues and programs being investigated; all on his watch. Now, he may beat them to the punch and resign; but if he tries to stay put, he will be fired.

    Meyer and the big bucks OSU boosters are playing a masterful game of "wait and see" and forcing the initial shock of this issue to pass over. The Trumpian news cycle environment we live in is so fast that even an issue such as this will pass by quickly. The investigative council assigned by the University will chastise Meyer but not fire him. He will likely see a 3 game suspension and be back in time for Big Ten play. Win - win for all. Zack Smith gets fired and walks away with a pile of University cash, to be shared with his soon to be ex wife. Buckeye players and fans keep their coach. Meyer keeps his job. Gene Smith is nudged into retirement and taps into the Buckeye slush fund. The OSU machine rolls forward.

    Yep. Pack up the kids and lets head to the buffet and gorge ourselves for two hours. Then wash it down with 48 ounces of fully loaded soft drinks. Just disgusting. Cant believe our society has so little self control. Take a look at many high school rosters and you will see a lot of 5-9, 265 pounders. And those are the little guys. LOL

    You'd think that Northridge as both the 12th and 13th best team in 4A could put both those teams together and end up in the Top 5.
