  1. Article in USA Today in Nov 2017 paints a slightly different story. Slight decline yes....Texas, and other states yes. But HS participation rates up in the south including Florida. This article talks about football participation moving....and that football still far and away top sport for participation. http://usatodayhss.com/2017/football-participation-decrease-high-school-pop-warner I think declines at the youth age is what needs to be monitored for future impact...and the article closes with that summary.
  2. IU-Purdue Recruiting Deadlock

    Perhaps its more how good the Big 10 is getting at recruiting. IU was ranked 48th last year, but 10th overall in the conference. I don't know IU's history, but 48th in the nation recruiting doesn't seem horrible for them. https://247sports.com/college/indiana/Season/2018-Football/Commits 43rd this year...but 11th in the Big 10..... https://247sports.com/college/indiana/Season/2019-Football/Commits I get your point....not great in their conference, but better than some pretty dang good programs....although its not over yet. But I don't disagree that IU needs to improve in its own conference or the road will be a tough one...especially in the Big 10 East. https://247sports.com/Season/2019-Football/CompositeTeamRankings
  3. IU-Purdue Recruiting Deadlock

    Doesn't seem like the sky is falling DT...... https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/college/indiana/2018/06/19/iu-football-recruiting-2019-class-gaining-momentum-under-tom-allen/713442002/
  4. School Fight Songs

    I believe BNL's originated from Give My Regards to Broadway..... https://www.tmnews.com/sports/bnl-pep-band-plays-school-fight-song/video_cf523c08-2585-545a-b43c-541f7e0fb8ab.html
  5. I concur...Lots of public weigh-in and documented support before the SAC was approved and constructed. Much more vetting as the SAC was a much bigger project.
  6. I'm a little bummed at your disappointment in the investment....is this why you didn't show up at the Student Activity Center opening?? https://goo.gl/images/F6yiAK https://goo.gl/images/1gGL74
  7. You are really grasping now Muda.....I think you are safe of that risk in your county....and you know it.
  8. I don't give a Tinker's Darn as to what your county officials decide. I'm not sure why you care about mine.
  9. LOL....you could have saved time by reading the article in the first place instead of repeatedly asking. Then when you are spoon fed, then you challenge the school board's decision. No matter the answer you received, we all knew the response coming. Do you think the WRT school board pays much attention to the opinions of a Clinton County resident?? Do you vote in Johnson County?
  10. It was the 2010 team that battled Warren the last game of the season (week 9) going to OT, in which they beat each other physically. Both teams were nationally ranked during the season and both ended up losing early in the playoffs. They physically wrecked each other last game of the season. The change to CG and WC playing the first game of the year occurred in 2013. http://pastfb.homestead.com/logs/CenterGrove.htm#loaded
  11. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Maybe it was... CG had some really nice W's. Tied for the MIC crown....beat Zionsville at their place. But lost to Franklin twice, Indian Creek once. 17-10-1 I believe.
  12. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Franklin also beat CG earlier in the season 9-3. CG had a solid year...but was up and down.
  13. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    What year? I thought your quote said this year. That is why I was puzzled.
  14. Way too close to home

    Very few want to talk about the demographics of males, white and young....... http://www.businessinsider.com/why-most-terrorists-and-mass-shooters-are-millennial-men-2017-11 Your comments are spot on. We think bullying just got invented. Well, it was alive and well back in my day....a day at a large rural HS in which student had guns in their truck gun racks parked in the high school parking lot, and never dreamed of carrying that weapon into school and opening up on their classmates. What we attempt to rationalize and explain today is beyond comprehension. Its easier to put it on the government, and to blame a tool (guns) and an organization (NRA) than to look in the mirror and challenge ourselves as to why the culture has changed, and changed for the worse. After all, we are the generation that is always smarter than the people that came before us. Why can we ever learn from them? (sarcasm) And most of society certainly doesn't want to hold themselves accountable for this problem.
