  1. * Week Six Scores *

    Snider 7 - Wayne 0 1st quarter Dwenger 17 - Concordia 0 2nd quarter
  2. SAC week 6

    Northrop vs Luers - Not as one-sided as most years, but Luers win this game. Luers 35 - Northrop 21 Homestead vs North Side - The bye week arrives for the Spartans. Homestead 63 - North Side 0 Carroll vs South Side - Carroll way too much for the Archers. Carroll 49 - South Side 14 Dwenger vs Concordia - I believe the Cadets will run over the Saints comfortably. Concordia 42 - Dwenger 21 Wayne vs Snider - This game could be closer then many expect. Like Wayne's athleticism, dislike their lack of discipline. Close into the 3rd quarter and the Panthers pull away. Snider 52 - Wayne 21
  3. Snider vs Homestead

    Don't let his little temper tantrum ruin his perception of what he believes was said, when in fact it was never said. I agree with the kicking game comments, the kicker has range to 55 yards from what I've seen. As far as Haupert goes, he is a good runner, I believe had over 100 yards rushing vs Homestead, but that doesn't change the fact that he must be able to throw the ball downfield with accuracy. Come playoff time and your playing Carmel, Westfield, Penn, Ben Davis, Warren Central, Center Grove, etc... one dimensional teams will get shut down.
  4. Snider vs Homestead

    Appreciate your insight as it is thorough, but I have watched the tape as well and watched other games from both teams and Honestead's defense can't stop the Snider running game. They get dominated on the line and pushed 5 yards back consistently. I will say this for all to hear, if you can't stop the run, you lose. You must make Snider throw the ball 20-30 times and hope your pass defense is decent to stop the offense. This is not the typical Snider team as it doesn't have the normal speed you see from them, it doesn't have the great receiver we have seen the last few years, and it doesn't have the game breaking speed from the running back position as normal. What it does have is great line play on both sides of the ball, a running back that runs hard and is tough to bring down, and the best defense they have had in ten years at Snider. Special teams is also improved over last year. Team speed is decent, but not where it has been recently. This team likes to hit though and will cause turnovers quite a bit. As I have said from day one this year, this team goes as far as QB Haupert takes them. With solid QB play, they will be playing for a state title. If not, they will lose in Regionals or Semi-State.
  5. Class 6A-2017

    Snider has beaten Carmel many times so don't understand the logic.
  6. Snider vs Homestead

    Good post!!! You are telling the truth, if I believe Snider will lose, I say it with no problem. There are areas on this year's team I think can be exploited, but I don't think any Fort Wayne area team can do it. Homestead got their a** handed to them in the scrimmage, which ultimately means nothing but gives you insight into how the teams matchup when they play for real. Homestead can't stop the Snider running game, period. Without stopping the running game, they won't beat Snider. You can slice it, dice it, and disect it any way you want, I just don't see Homestead beating Snider this year. As far as Homestead goes, they have a nice team this year, no doubt about it. Honestly, I think they would beat Carmel if they got the chance in Regionals, Wright is an all- state caliber QB and the defense is pretty good, but Snider is in 6A now and that changes everything. Just like Penn is the measuring stick in the Mishawaka area, Snider is the measuring stick in the Fort Wayne area.
  7. DAWGs Half Dozen

    This version of the Tribe would beat the 1995 Indians handily. The pitching alone is so much better then the 1995 team .
  8. Snider vs Homestead

    I watched the entire game and you clearly see 9 in the box trying to stop the Panther running game. Not sure what game you are watching. As far as me being the reason you root against Snider, glad I can serve that purpose for you. One difference between myself and some others on this site, I tell it like it is. I don't waste time sugar coating things , I tell it like I see it.
  9. Snider vs Homestead

    Snider will NOT lose to Homestead this year. They don't have the defense to stop Snider and unless they somehow figure out how to stop the Panther running game, they have zero chance.
  10. Snider vs Homestead

    Won't happen. Homestead was putting 9 in the box and still couldn't stop him. They were daring Haupert to throw. Only way Homestead beats Snider is a shootout type of game and I have serious doubts that will happen. When they play again, the defensive scheme will be different and they will contain Wright better. If they played 10 times, Snider would score 40+ points every time.
  11. Class 6A-2017

    Snider is legit....
  12. Snider vs Homestead

    Snider 52 - Homestead 31 - This is just about how I expected it to play out. I know my prediction was a lot closer, but I really felt this was going to be a 20+ point Snider win. I also knew Homestead would be unable to stop Snider's running game. The only lingering doubt I had was stopping Wright. It was possible that it could have been a 49-48 type of game as the Spartan offense is really good, but turnovers did them in. There will be a rematch come sectional time and that is the really big game. Only shot Homestead has is to win a shootout as they can't stop Snider.
  13. SAC week 5

    Carroll vs. Dwenger - 2 teams that have no good wins yet, not sure that whoever wins this game will still have a good win. I still can't get past Snider thumping Carroll 69-7 and Homestead pasting Dwenger 42-0.... Dwenger 28 - Carroll 21 Concordia vs. Northrop - At this point, Concordia has established that they are the third best team in the SAC. Northrop has established they are a cellar dweller... Concordia 42 - Northrop 7 Luers vs. North Side - Luers has not been very good so far this year, North Side has been abysmal... Luers 41 - North Side 6 South Side vs. Wayne - South Side continues its yearly struggles while Wayne is trying to re-establish itself as a conference front runner.... Wayne 49 - South Side 14 Snider vs. Homestead - Game of the year in the SAC. Line play will be the key in this game as whoever wins the line of scrimmage will win. Snider 24 - Homestead 17
  14. Get ready to be shocked then. Carmel will not be representing the North.
  15. Indy teams are legit so calling any of them weak is off base. They play a meat grinder of a schedule and beat up on each other. Snider will be a tough out come playoff time, but as I have said from the beginning, it will come down to QB play for the Panthers. If they get solid QB play, they will be playing for state title, if not, they will lose to Homestead in the sectionals.
