  1. Have to start with the greatest player in Indiana history: Rod Woodson
  2. 6A Football

    There will be some new blood, but it’s too early to say if it will make a big difference. I expect a lot more of a dual threat quarterback this year with less passing and more speed. I think the Panthers will be stout defensively and will try and run the ball down teams throats. We will see if it is successful...
  3. 6A Football

    Agreed about Homestead. I think Snider will be just fine this year. Actually, I think you will see more atlhleticism on the offensive side of the ball then last year. My concern about Snider is the same as it usually is, lack of discipline year in, year out. Usually one of the most penalized teams in the SAC and, while they get away with it vs SAC teams, come regional and semi state time, it bites them in the a** most years. I would expect 9-0 or at worst 8-1 during regular season then a tough matchup in regionals. Unlike most on here so far, I think Penn is the clear favorite out of the North.
  4. The question Snider fans need to ask themselves is it more important to win the SAC or compete for a state title? If the answer is the SAC then keep playing the schools you are playing and be happy with sectional titles , if not, then play the 4-5 SAC teams that are competitive and schedule the rest of your games against top flight competition to get ready for a state title run.
  5. I think Homestead and Carroll have fit in nicely with the SAC so far. Both teams are middle to upper tier teams in the conference and get far more competition then they use to in their old conference. Having said that, from a Snider perspective, it hasn’t benefitted Snider at all. Yes, I think the kids enjoy beating up on Homestead and Carroll for a couple reasons, but as far as helping to improve the team come playoff time, it doesn’t help. Would love to see the conference divided in half and then also schedule 1-2 non-conference games as well. Forget about playing all the conference members, what good does it do for all the teams involved other then saving money???
  6. Best Chances for 2018 Title

    That is more then 75% of the rosters in Indiana
  7. While I agree that their is a ton of D1 talent in the SAC, I am in disagreement about Homestead and Carroll being added. The reason for this is that added 2 games to the SAC schedule and took away the ability to schedule out of conference games for teams. I would love to see Snider playing some really good 6A teams from Indy that would be competitive rather then pounding Carroll 69-7 or drubbing North Side, South Side, Wayne, etc... I am pretty sure Dwenger could gain by playing some good 4A teams outside the conference as well. Concordia and Luers as well. There is just too much dredge in the SAC for the elite teams to get better throughout the year....
  8. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    Been saying the same thing for years. Just dumb for Snider to play North Side, Wayne, South Side, Northrop, etc... You can count on one hand the amount of times they have lost to these teams in the last 25 years combined. It does nothing for them to play these teams. Play Penn, Carmel, Ben Davis, etc... Quite honestly, it means zero to win the SAC in football, would rather play competitive games.
  9. He did a great job at Dwenger!!!
  10. Class 6A-2018

    Everyone has dreams about next year, but only one will hoist the trophy...
  11. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    21-0 already, speed kills
  12. Jerry Baker

    100% agreed!!!!
  13. Good game from both teams. I knew Kokomo wasn’t going to stop CE and I also thought it would take time for CE to adjust to the Kokomo attack, which it did though I thought CE never really stopped it. It is very tough to defend, especially when you don’t see it the rest of the year. The fumble late in the 2nd quarter was huge and gave CE some room on the scoreboard. Having watched Snider play Kokomo 2 times a couple years ago, you basically wait for turnovers and capitalize when you have the chance. Defensively, Kokomo wasn’t stopping CE so not a hard game to predict, but a fun game to watch for sure.
  14. CE 14-7 and then turnover by Kokomo CE 21-7, could be getting out of hand
  15. Kokomo answers dominating the line of scrimmage, 7-7. Kokomo offense is hard to defend as you don’t see it often. I know Snider had issues with it when they played a couple times.
