  1. ANYONE would be "remiss" to count out Sheridan. They still have that legend patrolling the sidelines. Linton has North Daviess, Sheridan, and North Central left on their schedule and ALL 3 teams have "stud" running backs. Don't know the running back's size from Sheridan but do know that the NC and the ND running backs are built like tanks. Hopefully Linton's defense stays healthy throughout the season. Also want to mention that everyone seems to be overlooking North Knox. The Warriors are off to a really great start this season. Speaking of N.K., they have a good test this week at Sullivan. If they win that game, people had better start taking them seriously. Just sayin'.
  2. Grant Stamm, WR for Linton. He's only played one game: 6 catches for 105 yards and 2 td's. With him on the offense, he stretches the field. ANYONE who doesn't respect him WILL get burned. He's not overly tall but has springs in his legs. Kid's got ups!
  3. Linton vs Sullivan

    Thanks a lot Puff. You're too kind. Coach Oliver isn't afraid to take chances, is he? LOL I sort of like the gamblers approach. I remember Stamm started showing up in the offense about halfway through his sophomore season. I was talking with someone about him and mentioned back then I thought he was going to be a great one. With him back on the team now, it will force other teams to respect the Miners passing attack even more. Even if other teams try to double team him, it will just open up things for some of the other guys. One on one, the majority of the time, Stamm will win those "battles". I really like seeing 4 solid backs and spreading out the carries. Big props to Rupska for moving to QB this year. If he stays efficient in the passing game, opposing defenses are going to have to play REALLY well to stop the Miners. Not to mention that Rupska is a load to tackle when he carries the ball. I hope the offense gets the kinks worked out as the season progresses. I feel like they left some points on the field last night. Still a long way to go. Sheridan, NC, and ND are all lurking and each of them have stud running backs. Should make for an interesting season! Looking forward to seeing the Miners play at the Oil Can (again) in a couple of weeks.
  4. Hey Coach, here's ten bucks. Buy me some powerball tickets. LOL Nice job on the forecast!
  5. Linton vs Sullivan

    Puff - Before I forget it, I wanted to say a BIG thanks for your help in my getting back on here. Couldn't believe how many times Coach Oliver went for it on fourth down! I believe it was 8 (or 9) times during the game. I think in high school football turning the ball over on downs goes in the turnover category or do they not consider it that way any more? If that is the case, then Linton had 8 turnovers in the game. I know they turned Sullivan over 6 times (3 fumbles and 3 int's). I understand why Coach Oliver went for it. It was just the number of times it happened that was so crazy. It was really great to see Stamm in the Miner red and blue again. Looks like he left off where he did last year: 6 catches for 105 yds and 2 tds. That one catch he made on 4th and 15 for a first down was highlight reel material. Great hands, great "ups" and a tough kid. It seems (to me) his attitude on the field is, "you can't stop me and I'm going to catch this ball".
  6. Linton vs Sullivan

    Thanks MP! Have had one heckuva time since the crash getting back on here. Still having issues with work computer. On the laptop at home it's okay. Will try to say howdy before the game tonight. If not, have a great broadcast, bro! Miners defense needs to play four quarters! If so, they win. If they don't show, Sullivan wins.
  7. Linton vs Sullivan

    Linton's defense: play for 4 quarters. Linton's offense isn't built for comebacks so they can't get down by 2 scores even early in the game. They are more of a grind it out offense this year. Anyone heard if Stamm is only playing offense? It would be great to see him in that defensive secondary also at least for a while. I'm expecting a much closer game this year. Something like 34 - 27.
  8. Maybe not this season. This could be that type of year that the #1 spot in the polls and such is a revolving door. A sign of parity in 1A? Maybe you could argue that, maybe not.
  9. Hoosier Nation

    Have to agree with The Dude. It really doesn't matter who IU has at qb they can and will score points. They proved that last season. Roberson at QB would just be "icing on the cake". Their success (or failure) this season will depend on the defense. If it has improved, then I can see them getting to that magic 6 wins and a bowl. If it hasn't improved, then I am thinking it's another year of frustration and heartaches for Hoosier Nation.
  10. If North Knox can stay away from injuries this season it will be interesting to see what they can put on the field. The last 2 years its seems they've had tons of concussions. Hope they got that figured out and all of the young men are doing okay healthwise.
