  1. D3 College Cancels Remainder of season

    Just for clarity, St. Joseph's College closed, the football program did not shut down. The closure of the college had absolutely zero to do with the football program. The story is concerning, but I feel they should really take a long look at 8-man football at the high school level and give them a separate class. But this is Indiana, where they are very slow to change.
  2. sectional 42

    North Miami over South Newton. If they don't win by a bunch, they have absolutely no shot to win this sectional. Saw NM scrimmage before the season. They're good, not great by any means. Tri County over LCC. I believe in those kids, and most importantly, they believe in themselves and each other. Win or lose, they will represent themselves well. Pioneer over Carroll. The Cougars size and offense may give the Panthers some trouble, but not enough to gain the victory. Frontier over North White. I'd rather watch the Directv message about Channel 13 not being on the air than watch this game. The winner earns the right to be slaughtered by Pioneer next Friday.
  3. Hoosier Conference 2017

    I checked in on occasion but never posted. Things haven't really changed much on here. Have made a lot of road trips the past three years or so to North Newton, Tri County and Delphi following the sons around. Looking forward to Friday. Think the Cavs can compete, just hope they aren't in awe of the Knights and the tradition. They have a really great group of kids and it has been fun being around them. As for sleeping on a couch just for a free breakfast, I can't do it this weekend as I have to take the Mrs. to the airport Saturday morning for a business trip. Maybe another Friday.
  4. Hoosier Conference 2017

    Looking forward to the visit. Hope everyone is doing well.
  5. Hoosier Conference 2017

    Doing good. Retired from coaching, except for Friday nights at TC. I'll be on the sidelines Friday, trying to help as much as I can and staying out of the way. The boy is a good coach. He's got a really bright future. He's done a really good job with his kids.
  6. Hoosier Conference 2017

    Hire that kid at Tri County. I heard he's a good Catholic kid.
  7. From what I was told, Red Stanley was credited with helping promote football in Westfield. Wasn't a coach, but a very dedicated citizen. Sheridan - Bud Wright Stadium Noblesville - I believe it's Swanson Field at Hare Chevrolet Stadium Both complexes in Fishers (Hamilton SE & FIshers) are Reynolds Stadium (after Reynolds Farm Equipment).
  8. North Dakota Name Change

    You know, the next step in this will be animal rights groups protesting the use of animal mascots. While this is funny, it is also sad. On a local level, I'm offended by the name Indiana Fever, primarily because it's an *Deleted*ic name. Maybe Freddy Fever will be replaced by a thermometer. NOTE: I guess idi@t is a word you can't use around here
  9. Concussion Survey

    Haven't seen them in a long time. I would think probably not in the trainer's medical bag anymore.
  10. Concussion Survey

    Never diagnosed with a concussion, and can't remember anyone I played with having one either (late 70s-early 80s). There were a lot of us who had our 'bells rung' though. It wasn't anything some smelling salts wouldn't cure, right?
  11. Turf fields

    Grand Park in Westfield will allow HS softball and baseball teams use of their turf fields if they are rained out on their grass fields. Someone had commented that they can handle 6" rain per hour and still be playable. Don't know if that's true, but 6" rain would wipe out 1-2 weeks of the season waiting for the fields to dry out. They can basically play there as long as it is not pouring down rain or there is lightning.
  12. If the weather denies And the Ballhawk flies The Saturday thrill Wagonmaster to kill!
  13. Have they ever approached St. Francis about using their field? Is that even something that either side would consider?
  14. Pretty Cool Story out of New Pal

    Great story. Who said there's no crying in football? This is what sports can do in the much bigger picture.
  15. Thinking the same thing. To quote Mitch Daniels in the IHSAA commercial: "I'm definitely a fan!"
