    This is a great read - Don Bunge's insight into high school football at 95! I still sit with him at a few of the games and the Coach is still as sharp as a tack on what's happening on the field. In fact, I was with him last night at Bremen's football kick off dinner and and have a great picture of him "coaching" one of his original players, Kenny Muncy! https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/sportshub2-uploads-prod/files/sites/303/2018/08/09120940/play-football-by-D.-Bunge.pdf

    Some coaches like to play everyone and get them on film in game action and some like to use the scrimmage as a warm up for the season. Such was the case at Avon tonight. First team to first team was pretty even but Cathedral subbed early and often as Avon played their starters a bit longer. It sure was good to be back in the stands on Friday night. Things start up for real next Friday night!

    I have officially switched sides and am now against any qualification and seeding initiatives. The tournament as structured best fits the Indiana style of post season play and generally yields the most optimum results.

    Tonight are the authorized controlled scrimmages that officially kick off the football season. Good luck to all 3 teams on the field. Stay safe out there. This is an adaption of one of the Play of the Day scenarios sent out each day of rhe season by the Indiana Football Officials Association, a great teaching and learning tool. First and 10 for A from its own 20-yard line. Receiver A1 sprints from his 20-yard line and cuts sharply toward the middle at his own 30-yard line. A1 makes no attempt to block defensive back B1 who is standing on the 30-yard line. B1 pursues A1 and pushes him from the side using his open hands. Contact is made on A1's upper arm before the pass is thrown. A1 was moving away from B1 when the contact occurred. QB A2 subsequently (a) throws an incomplete pass over the head of A1, or (b) is sacked at the A 15 yd. line. Ruling?

    Yeah im not sure. I thought last year would be a breakthrough season. Never can tell. I think i have finally accepted that this isn't the same as coach mo's first go around at bhss. A lot of things were different back then the town was a lot different. Things were perfectly aligned his first stint here. This time he has done very well but im not sure the culture and other variables are aligned as well as the first time he was here. Ill be satisfied if the program can continue to build itself up each season . State titles may not be in the near future but good/exceptional football can still be on the horizon.

    That sounds like a very sneaky predetermined slotting maneuver. The pps would shred that in a minute.

    I edited my post because I screwed up the opponent records on my first try, but I would argue the 5-4 team is far more worthy. But my gut tells me that an IHSAA proposal would more than likely go with the 7-2 team. Just FYI, the 5-4 team is Ev. Mater Dei, who plays bigger schools all season and took 2A state champ Southridge to OT in the Sectional final. The 7-2 team s North Posey, who mainly plays 2A & 3A schools and lost in Round 1 to Linton (who is 1A enrollment but got bumped up due to success factor).

    You think its tongue in cheek because you are fundamentally rational. Believe me, take a drive down US 52 to Franklin County and see what they have to say about it. The only thing "in cheek" there is Skoal.

    I get how some folks might somehow feel the idea behind this is ultimately to benefit Indianapolis area schools. As someone who grew up in, arguably, the poorest corner of the state we thought that anything coming out of Indy was for Indy...but that feeling doesn't make it true. Even so, I am still for the "all-in" but would like to see Sectionals seeded - at minimum, the top 2 teams. The reasoning behind seeding Sectionals in an "all-in" tournament is valid..and fair. Any argument against is based on "feelings" and far, far from "fair". That said, I do find myself leaning more each year towards where Bobref and Footballking are coming from. I think it would add some import to certain regular season games that often doesn't exist now. At the same time, I could see some schools just deciding to pack it in as regards football since they never see the light of day as regards playoffs. Alternately, it could have the opposite effect. If only 50% of the teams make playoffs it could be an inspiration for some of those schools that are usually poor in football - making the playoffs being the reward and goal in itself regardless how far they may get. Under the current system, for some schools, I imagine that the first round of Sectionals only offers up "one final Friday night butt-kicking" before hoops season starts. That said, I am still for the "all-in" but there are some valid reasons for a different approach.

    Why shouldn't a postseason format benefit the best teams? That's the question nobody has answered. Can you find me another sport at any level of competition where the best regular season teams aren't the most rewarded teams when it comes to postseason admission/seeding? Why should the postseason protect the undeserving teams and hurt the teams who did the best in the regular season? That's why the regular season is all for nothing with the current all-in.

    I apologize for his music choice... I would point him to Lil Wayne (before 2004), Cash Money Millionaires, Nas, Lil John and The Eastside Boyz (Kings of Crunk)... if he wanted some better Rap lol.

    Not an apples to apples comparison. PP freshman teams are preloaded with guaranteed feeder systems, which most public schools do not enjoy. We all know and acknowledge this fact. It is what it is.

    Roncalli's freshman Team numbers are usually 35-40. I haven't seen the final rosters for 2018. Freshman team serves as a good transition to HS football, allows lots of playing time for all, and it bonds the class since Roncalli has 9 middle school programs.

    I’d like to poll the ADs of those same schools and see how many would have no problem incurring the expenses of traveling to play a game in Wk. 10 and getting no gate, with no guarantee of a reciprocal game the following year vs getting a share of the Sectional pot as they would under the all-in system.

    Yes! And the counterpart cereal Quake ... although Quake was just a Cap'n Crunch knock off. Especially since HS had a salmonella recall over the summer.

    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!!

    My modern experience (not counting my leather helmet days) is that Freshman football's FIRST priority was to keep kids loving the game and having fun doing it. Don't run kids away from the game. By playing with those of similar size and age (and developing a sense of class unity), they have something to build on and develop comradeship and pride in their class. Its goal is to keep that certain small kid engaged so that when he has that 6" and 50lb growth spurt he hasn't left the game behind two years previously (or the short heavy kid that adds inches and turns into a tight end). There are so many stories about what kids looked like Freshman year versus what they became as Seniors. I get it if you frankly just don't have the numbers but I think you are at a severe disadvantage (at least in 3A upwards) if you can't or don't field Freshman teams. Its great to win games, etc., but if you really think that is the real priority of Freshmen football, I think it's a mistake. It's to keep kids in the game and playing the NEXT year.

    Trinity Lutheran and Southside Home School (Indianapolis Crimson Knights) are 2 separate teams. When Trinity Lutheran dropped football after 2014 season, the remaining Trinity players joined the Crimson Knights for 2 seasons. (And pretty successful, only losing 3 games in 2 seasons, and finishing #3 in the Nation among homeschool teams the 2nd season with an undefeated regular season with most games being against IHSAA teams.) Trinity Lutheran restarted their program for the 2017 season, and separated from the Crimson Knights. The former Crimson Knights Coach, Mike Wilson, leads the new program at Trinity Lutheran, while Jerry Rasberry took over the program for the Crimson Knights. Both programs are still considered a "club' team, as Trinity Lutheran will not join the IHSAA yet. Both teams accept players who are Homeschooled, or whose high school teams do not offer football. Both are great programs with some great leadership, and potential to grow as more High School programs drop their teams.

    The main story I see here is that we should all aspire to be the AD at Cathedral...some serious jack to be found in the athletic department on East 56th Street....apparently. ....and I had hoped my kid could aspire to run a hedge fund on Wall Street to make a shekel or so...
