  1. Curious as to the format of this event? Do defenses just “tag off” on the runner, or how is a play supposedly blown dead since there isn’t to be any live tackling to the ground, nor full pads??
  2. Any football guys have success at the Track State Finals?? Always interesting to see how the 2 sports correlate- especially in the Sprint events
  3. I apologize if this has been discussed in another thread and I just missed it - but has there been a resolution in the Coach Moore situation at Center Grove? Seemed like that was all the rage a couple weeks ago, then discussion just kind of stopped? Thanks for any information....
  4. Every coach on here is shaking their head. Would love for you to go through a typical "in-season" day of a coach. Leave the house at 7am...hoping to return by 7 pm. Those aren't exactly "plumb hours" ....
  5. You're generalizations are _____________ I can't even think of an appropriate word - offensive? might be the word I want to use....but they sure are exhausting to say the least. Being in public education is very much a "thankless" and tiring profession that the likes of you wouldn't understand, having probably never had to lead a classroom and teach 5 or so periods a day. Are there individuals who milk the system ?? I'm sure...but most companies could say the same thing. I'm assuming you've had a bad public education experience/coach and you've had an ax to grind ever since. But, you are a mighty fine sh$% stirrer.....so stir away.
  6. The days of the Bobby Knight-type coach are long gone....just can't operate that way anymore.
  7. Actually forgot this was taking place. Seems to me if one was going to pump that much $$ into the football facilities- you’d wanna make sure those plans included field turf??
  8. Ok Mr. Know-it-all...I was off by a yard (which in my defense- I was actually told by an official this year it was 3) but wasn't off in my "understanding of the rule" . My original premise- with the rise of RPO teams this rule needs to be more strictly enforced and isn't. In fact it is often just blatantly missed/ignored...as explained to me above, I guess officials have too many other things to be watching- like a coaches placement on the sideline.
  9. Well - I played in a RPO scheme in college so I have a pretty good idea of it's concepts as well as the rules regulating them. As I understand it, at both the College and High School level the lineman are allowed a "3 yard window" downfield when it comes to pass protection. I would be more in favor of the NFL's 1 yard ...but I digress. Most of the RPO schemes are built around a "zone-blocking" concept which in some cases, keeps the lineman moving laterally for a good bit...however when an uncovered lineman is trying to reach a LB, yet the ball is flying over his head for a pass - to me something is wrong there. I've seen it too many times to count - yet the officials I've encountered seem to give the benefit of the doubt to that "3 yard window" ...... To me its more of a problem of the way the rule is written I guess - to much in this direction and you'll have chaos all over!! We'll look like little 3 graders out there just running around playing ball.

    OK - switching gears from the sideline debate. I brought this up in another thread that was on the regular forum, but it didn't gain much traction nor generate any response from any officials, so I'll try again on this thread. Illegal men downfield?? With the advent of all these RPO teams and having built-in pass plays packaged with runs ...why isn't ineligible man downfield called more often? Seriously, I don't understand why officials seem to refuse to call this rule? Most of these RPO plays are packaged with a "zone-blocking" scheme in which the lineman are taking more "lateral" steps than gaining any ground...I get that. But when the uncovered lineman...say the Center..is trying to reach our ILB and is standing right next to the middle official when a pass is thrown?? I don't get it?? Does that play happen to fast that the official just doesn't want to throw his flag?? I could show examples of numerous plays from our past season...to me it is sort of becoming an epidemic that if not handled will change the way the game is played, turning it into a sort of playground mess.
  11. Yup - I get the fact that officials have a million things to watch - but this - in my opinion- is the MOST missed call among officials.

    I gotcha ...and am in total agreement with you. When the play is LIVE, officials should have their area. They shouldn't have to worry about me as a coach on the sideline. If you go back and read my entire post...my issue is with the official who has a problem with me trying to communicate with a DB on the opposite side of the field when no snap is innement.
  13. Rules Ideas

    I just don't get the "purpose/why" . I get the safety issue of the official. If he runs into a coach, by all means, flag the sideline and make it a 15 yard penalty. If the official is getting unfairly...or fairly for that matter, berated on the sideline by coaches, sure, toss the flag and give the team a 15 yard penalty. What I do NOT get, and get frustrated with....is when I'm trying to COACH. Yes, we coaches try and be as prepared as possible leading up to the game so that instruction is minimal during game time...but believe it or not, situations come up where my voice is needed...and is needed to be HEARD. 3 feet may not seem like much...but what is the big deal if the play/ball isn't "live" and I'm trying to yell instructions to my Defensive Back across the field?? I personally appreciate the officials who "get it" and allow a little leeway within the rule.

    HA!! Good luck with that
