    Most of the time we just stand there and take it when getting berated by a coach. And that’s the way it should be. But every once in a while the opportunity to get in a zinger presents itself, and you just can’t resist. What’s your best comeback — delivered in a totally professional manner, of course? I took advantage of one such opportunity last night. After calling back the home team’s kickoff return TD for a block in the back while they were getting blown out: Me: “Coach, that was my man, and I watched him chase that kid for 30 yds., and when he caught up to him, he crushed him from behind.” Coach: “What are you talking about? There wasn’t even a [visiting team] player anywhere around there. Only my players.” Me: Coach, I know you’ve got an iPad over there. Go look at the play and you’ll see what I mean.” Coach: [after watching the video] “He had his head in front. That makes the block legal, right?” Me: “Had his head in front of who? I thought it was only your players there.”

    Bombers won 66-0 Eastbrook has a very very nice team from what I saw when I visited vs Ole Miss. Can't wait to get into film over the weekend, probably be having some serious night terrors with #22 speed !!! Mercy he looked fast a few weeks back and his stats are video game numbers. Have a great week Panther folks: Hit me up with any questions about the way of the land in Jasper county. But if you come over and do not HAVE a wagonmaster, well thats on you!!!

    While I respect the fact that DT and Muda like to throw mud on the wall to see what sticks/generate discussion. I feel pretty strongly that getting rid of a sport because of wins/losses is just plain asinine. As Blu mentioned, sounds like a broken record, repeating their same crap. Having worked in Law Enforcement/Corrections for 13+ years, I can 100% say that pulling the plug on many of these teams would be taking the only good thing in many of these kids lives away. Many of the teams DT mentions that should be cut are inner city, poor, minority, or otherwise crime ridden areas. Many of these kids have been in trouble with the law/school, and do not have a positive role model in their lives, or if they do, it's their single parent working 3 jobs to put food on the table. Take away the game/coaches from their lives and what do they have left? How many will turn to drugs/theft/even worse without the coaches in their lives and something to live for. I would say just the opposite, don't give up on these kids, they need good role models and to stay busy doing something positive....going 0-10 for 5 years in a row is still better than getting shot on the street corner while slinging dope.

    I don't know, I was pretty excited seeing that 1-8 Evansville Bosse beat 5-4 Boonville Friday. And those kids who faced a ton of adversity all year and didn't quit looked pretty darn excited too.

    Just for clarity, St. Joseph's College closed, the football program did not shut down. The closure of the college had absolutely zero to do with the football program. The story is concerning, but I feel they should really take a long look at 8-man football at the high school level and give them a separate class. But this is Indiana, where they are very slow to change.

    I've always hated showboating or other unsportsmanlike conduct in games. Whenever I get a sack/force a fumble/whatever, I just jog back to the line and hand the ball to the official if I have to. One major appeal of football is the modesty involved. The lack of individuality works in the sport's favor. Uniforms where it's hard to see the player's face work. Players feel more like a team instead of feeling like they are individuals. Teamwork is not as prominent in any sport as football. Victory requires 100% cooperation from each and every player. What would you do without a line or DBs? Modesty is important in football. You play the game, you win. That's how you show off, not a 10 minute touchdown dance.

    Let me say this about LCC if there are any haters out there glad to see them down. I had three sons play varsity football against those guys every year. In those years, we were a building program, and we lost badly most of the time (although, also made some good plays - just sayin). But all three of them said that the most sportsmanlike team they ever played against was LCC. Says a lot about the class of the program. I hope we beat them every time, but they will be back, sooner than some might wish, and I wish them well. They do it the right way, I think.

    Mississinewa @ Frankfort Mississinewa beats up on Frankfort. Game over by half. Ole Miss 54-7 Blackford @ Northwestern At the beginning, I would have said Blackford but they have dropped a little to far down for me. Northwestern wins 27-7. Eastbrook @ Eastern This one will be close for the first 8 minutes and then Eastbrook unloads. Eastbrook 48-14 (come on XStar, go ahead and down vote me) Oak Hill @ Delphi After watching Oak Hill play Frankton, I don't think this will be much of a game. O.H.'s offense is brutal. Delphi 21-7 Alexandria @ Elwood Elwood does not care enough to win this game. I think they potential could if the team was still fully together but it not going to happen. Alex 34-14 Frankton @ Madison Grant Frankton big. The question is when do they pull the starters? McGuire could score 60 on his own but not sure the extra hits are worth it. I am going modest and saying Frankton 48-0.

    We currently have an "all in" format. In my opinion lobbing for less than all in at this point is a solution looking for a problem. In recent years we've had championship scores of: 56-14 34-7 33-6 31-7 77-42 56-7 56-6 42-7 54-0 52-0 What is the point of this thread? We're suppose to pass judgement on all these games based on the fact they lost? Perhaps even do away with their Football programs. As is evidenced with these numbers the losers in these games had great seasons. They made it to the ship, and for whatever reason the wheels fell off. My suggestion to DT, Muda, and those of their ilk, put a proposal together, poll the principals, gain their overwhelming support, present it to the IFCA, get their blessing, present it to the IIAAA, get their approval, and lastly present it to the IHSAA's Annual Meeting.

    Can't speak for Dan Jones on this (despite the fact I consider him one of the most astute observers of HS football around here)...but his comments, admittedly, weren't related to evaluations, etc. That said, I do find it painful to see coaches get ripped on publicly - particularly in a year where those in the know realize a team is going to be down a bit. I appreciate that certain cultures have high expectations and those expectations often lead to great results...even in down years.....but there ARE down years...and it just seems hugely inappropriate to rip a coach in that circumstance. Lest there be any doubt, LCC has arguably been the best program in the State pound for pound the majority of the last 10 years. Knowing some few people from there, I wouldn't expect them, the coaches and the kids to be anything less than classy on and off the field. To rip into a coach like I have seen on this thread seems the antithesis of that.

    He must not follow high school basketball. Based on Sagarin Ratings, 09er's team will be ranked number 1 in the state for class 2A. They play Cathedral, Lawrence Central and Broad Ripple in the first two weeks. If they win just one of those games and keep the final score close in all three, their Sagarin Rating will be so far ahead of any other 2A team in the state that they'll remain the top ranked 2A team for the entire season. 09er believes his team can win all three of those games.

    You know he's the head basketball coach at Howe right? Team that went to State two years ago and has most of its team back from last year. Would not be shocked in the slightest to see them win. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2017/07/18/howe-names-kristof-kendrick-new-boys-basketball-coach/489662001/

    Wouldn’t matter either way to me. Frankly, I never paid any attention to the ratings I got from coaches for two reasons: I don’t consider coaches competent to rate officiating performance. I never met a coach that knows the rules even half as well as I do, and they know even less about mechanics and philosophy. A simple numerical rating, given without any standards by which to rate the officials, is useless. Immediate feedback after a game, when you have the video to watch, could be helpful. But a simple number, which might be the product of several experiences over the years, provides no useful information. Now, what would - and did - bother me was when we’d see a coach 3 times in 5 seasons and he couldn’t be bothered to vote for us. That happens frequently, and is one of the major reasons the rating system is a farce.

    My dad, Henry S. Easter, Jr., was a Continental through and through. He was proud of going to "Warshington". My immediate family are all Westsiders. My brother & I went to Ben Davis. Mom went to Pike. My dad and aunt to Washington. My pop got a lot from his education. He went on to scrape by at Indiana Central where he starred in baseball, football, wrestling, and golf. Then, he got hired to continue to build the football, wrestling, and boys golf programs at Avon. After that, he went into IPS as a teacher at School 75 and then into counseling. He got into administration where he was at Howe as the dean of boys and then was Vice Principal at Broad Ripple for 18 years to close out his career. He would never talk much about the games he played, but he passed the lessons he learned from his coaches like Frank Luzar and Bill Bless and others on to me. If not for my dad and his experiences at Washington, I might not be a teacher. You know, dad got a shot at the principalship of Washington HIgh School right before it closed the first time in 1995, and he was disappointed he didn't get it. In retrospect, I'm glad he didn't because it would have killed him to close that building.

    There is plenty of talent on this year's team to win games in the tournament.

    This is always a ridiculous argument. Players aren't going to feel any better or worse if they get beat 42-0 or 56-0. I think some "adults" get much more bent out of shape over this topic then the actual players and coaches do. I seriously doubt many 16 year old high school kids are going to cry themselves to sleep because another team beats them by 56 instead of 42. Most of them can't remember the score of the game 45 minutes after the game ends anyway. Play the game. You only get 10 guaranteed games a year. This isn't little league. And remember there is a paying public to think about. People who pay money to watch their child play, whether they are a starter or a backup who actually gets to play in a varsity game during blowouts. And also with the 5 quarter rule and some programs being short on numbers to begin with, its not like you can start putting JV players in so early in games anyway. Let the coaches of the actual teams run their teams like they see fit and manage the game as they see fit. And if the opposing coach has an issue with how another coach manages his team, take it up with him after the game or in another manner in the offseason. Part of being a head coach.

    Don't know how to handicap this game. I think it will be a good one.

    Killa - so much for "staying classy", huh? When the going gets tough, the (not so) tough point fingers at somebody else hoping to deflect the attention, I guess... I have been around Evansville high school football for over 40 years, as both a player and a passionate fan. In my experience, there is simply no basis for your accusations that Reitz & Memorial "are two of the dirtiest teams" and that it "has always been that way". Honestly, it is confusing why would even you chose to take the conversation in this direction. I have not read where anyone has called the Bears "dirty" but perhaps I missed it. What I and many others have seen with our own eyes & what makes the bears "hard to like" - your words, not mine - is their lack of discipline. Playing with a chip on your shoulder is one thing, constantly mouthing off & getting an extra shove in after the play - to the point where even the fans in the stands can see it, is too much for anyone but die-hard Bear fans like yourself. You say the kids have a lot of respect for Owens, certainly one would hope the Bears have respect for their coach. However, what they seem to lack is respect for their opponents and, to some extent, the game itself. You say that most of the kids you know "are respectful and carry themselves fine" but even you have admitted that this doesn't always carry onto the field. I think that is what many local fans see when they watch the Bears. Most of us want a local team to cheer for at LOS and the Bears certainly seem to have enough talent to get there - if they can play with more self-control & discipline and let their play do their talking. When teams get deep in the playoffs, there is a certain element of "not beating yourself" that comes into play. This is where many feel the Bears' lack of discipline & self-control could hurt them. As a fan of ALL Evansville teams once the playoffs begin, I sincerely wish Good Luck to da Bears, the rest of the way.

    Don't know about the rest, but definitely a big old chunk. The following picture was provided courtesy of @Coach Nowlin for RCHS when they played WL at LOS earlier in the season. If you look closely, you can see the RCHS bus parked behind #70.

    No offense to VL, but this one is over by halftime. GS is on another level.

    Central will blow Jasper away. Only chance they have is to get that turf up to about 8 inches.

    In the second round, the team that played away in round 1 hosts round 2. Unless both were away or both home, then the bottom team hosts. For the championship round, the team that hosted the fewest games in rounds 1 & 2 gets to host the final. Unless both hosted the same number, then the bottom team hosts. Someone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is how it's determined.

    Memorial will get to rest their starters round 2 also.

    Disagree. Gerry DiNardo was a dumpster fire that Hoeppner inherited and improved almost overnight, both in terms of W-L record and competitiveness, similar to what you're seeing at Purdue with Brohm. IU screwed up promoting Billy Lynch after his interim year, the year they went to the bowl game with Hep's players. The IU administration saw a positive result, got complacent, and offered the bare minimum to keep Lynch for his services. Had IU made a Kevin Wilson type hire immediately following Hep's passing who knows what happens.

    If Cathedral, or any school for that matter, used an ineligible player then they automatically become ineligible for postseason play on that technicality, not W-L record.

    Yes it's high school football. Where coaches can lose their job for poor performance. Where kids can get full ride scholarships based on play. High school football should NOT be just a participation league. That's what youth and rec leagues are for. That's the problem, everyone thinks everyone should be handed a trophy. Believe it or not, you can still enjoy playing football and learn valuable life lessons without an all-in format. 47 other states have it figured it out. There is absolutely ZERO logical qualification systems that would exclude an undefeated team for postseason contention. Not one. The one I have proposed, a format that eliminates half the field after the end of the regular season, would include many teams with .500 and sub .500 records. I'm a troll for advocating a postseason that rewards regular season success? Gee how evil of me. Are you really that soft? You should try and stay away from these boards.

    Mississinewa wins big over Frankfort. Where are you from? Frankton. Oh you're a hot dog. Nope I said Frankton, I'm an Eagle. That conversation has happened to me at least 100 times. Northwestern over Bruins. I hope I'm wrong but it looks to me like all of Northwestern's losses are "good" losses if there is such a thing. Except for getting smoked at Tipton, NW was in every game they played and they played some really good teams. Eastbrook over Greentown. All 6 Comet wins have been over significantly inferior opponents. This game is over at halftime. Delphi wins at home against OH. Oracles can see/predict the future, therefore their defense knows every play Oak Hill will attempt to execute. Alexandria wins a close one again. I miss Bernie's, hopefully the Panthers fans will drink a few High Life's for me and play some Tom Petty on the jukebox if they make the 9 minute drive South Frankton over Rigdon/Fairmount/Summitville. Hopefully MG gets a lot better next year, I hate to see my FIL's alma mater suffering like this. MG only needs about 25 less HS students to drop down to 1A. Is that going to happen MG folks?

    Yes good points Coach. Remember the Clinton Prairie debacle from a few years ago? There was speculation on here that the CP program could be cancelled. They turned it around and have been successful since then. I am NEVER an advocate of cancelling any sports program. It's a bad deal for all involved.
