  1. Believe Zachery finished 2nd to Morgan Newton. Zachery's team lost to Ritter while Newton's Carmel team beat Pike. That possibly was the deal breaker.
  2. Don't necessarily agree that this weekend is due to the success factor. I think you are severely discrediting some of the public schools who have "gotten better and worked harder". What really has changed? LCC is usually a formidable 1A foe who played in 1A this year and just had a down year. Dwenger and Lowell are very familiar with one another and have played at the SS multiple times, Lowell was just the better team this year. To my knowledge Cathedral and Roncalli are the only p/p's playing up a class this year from their technical enrollment, Columbus East was just the better team this year. Good minds think alike, saw your post pop up as I was typing my reply and knew we would be saying the same thing.
  3. The Dream is Alive!

    Certainly happy for you that a bunch of 15,16,17 year old boys losing a football game brings you such joy, especially in a game where you have no dog in the fight. Congrats.
  4. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    Yep. I believe it was the first year of class basketball. RebelDad was inquiring about the last 15 years and to my knowledge was the only sectional title they had in that time frame.
  5. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    They’ve won 1 back in 2013. Actually made it to the state championship but lost to Carmel. But yes the basketball program, while it’s been solid, is nowhere near as good as the football program.
  6. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    An all P/P class would have less parity than 6A.
  7. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    Man you came out of nowhere and came in hot. Serious question, did Cathedral play a single game on WHMB40 before tonight? Genuinely asking. Have not seen the replay nor care to but just seems like you’re nitpicking just to nitpick.
  8. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    Great points. Kind of sums up Cathedral the last 3 years. This 2018 class without a doubt is the most talented class (in terms of D1 talent) to ever go through Cathedral but they just could never stay healthy as a group. Ekiyor’s injury had nothing to do with the final score tonight, you’re gonna struggle to beat anybody turning the ball over 5 times but you’re going to get buried by a good team like East, but it just makes you wonder what Cathedral could have accomplished playing with everyone healthy. Didn’t happen many times over the last 3 years and it’s all what-ifs and what could have been. Anyways congrats O’s, I expect them to roll next week and they will have the target on their back next year. Cathedral will definitely use this as motivation and should definitely be a wake up call that no matter how good somebody tells you you are, you have to earn it. People crowned Cathedral as 5A champions the second they bumped down.
  9. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    Disagree. In this instance no, Columbus East was that good. But SOS 100% plays a part in some cases. In my opinion.
  10. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    In all fairness it was a lot of the non-Cathedral crowd predicting an Irish blowout. Anyone who has seen Cathdral play this year knows their defense has been susceptible. Combine that with a couple early turnovers that East was able to convert on and the final score is what it is.
  11. Columbus East @ Cathedral

    You had East -21 right? Haha. Well deserved, Olympian’s superior in all facets of the game.
  12. West Lafayette

    Don't know much about WL either but I'm guessing many just underestimated Brebeuf. They struggled early but played a hell of a schedule (for anybody) and were better for it. Guessing WL hadn't faced much, if any adversity all year and were shell-shocked once the Braves didn't give an inch. After a tough 2-4 start they rattled off 9 straight including a pair of back to back wins over 6A HSE and Westfield. They are my pick to win 3A from here on out.
  13. I think the biggest disconnect whenever the word "recruiting" gets thrown around is that everybody has a different perception of what actually constitutes as "recruiting". I do believe some think that P/P's offer full ride scholarships similar to how it works in college athletics. I don't know one private or parochial school that offers athletic scholarships, it just doesn't work that way. There are other forms of recruiting such as open houses, bulletins, TV ads, etc but P/P's have to advertise their school because they have no inherent feeder schools, especially a private school like Cathedral. They have to take kids from all form of demographics from all over their city because if they didn't, their doors would be closed. When you aren't guaranteed X amount of students a year you have to in other words "recruit". You can technically claim that every student attending a P/P in some form was "recruited". But the biggest advantage that Cathedral, along with other P/P's have, is that athletic success, academics, etc recruits itself. It's no different than girls from all over metropolitan Indy wanting to go to Carmel because of their swimming program. Success recruits itself in these instances.
  14. Right? Guy picking a nationally ranked top 10 team to win their state tournament is really going out on a limb. He's actually been wrong because he's predicted BD to blow through the 6A tournament and they've had to come from behind to win 2/3 games so far.
  15. Don't have a clue about what? How the IHSAA has jurisdiction over athletic transfers? You don't think Purcell transferring to Warren Central to play QB because Cathedral doesn't throw or have a D1 WR is anything but an athletic transfer? If the IHSAA deems your transfer was athletic based you aren't playing varsity for a calendar year. There's a precedent already set, many already involving Cathedral. I suggest you get a clue pal.
