  1. Kirk Kennedy Retires

    YES....and that is an understatement. Brookville is perhaps the most oddly insular community I have ever seen (and I grew up there) - outsiders need not apply. They don't even like people from other parts of the county. I was afraid that Kennedy would be fighting an uphill battle from the beginning regardless of his style. I had hoped he could change things there - but then, I still believe in Santa Claus. Strange little town.... East Central would totally "get" him if he were on staff there, btw. East Central is pretty much "Lowell South" (or Lowell is "East Central North") from what I can tell. Bummer to hear this. Edit - btw, he did manage to get his team to battle EC up through the 4th Quarter this year.
  2. One of the most "d!ckish" comments I have ever seen here...and I've qualified for some of them. BD93's comments as to Ralph were respectful and sensible. You're the guy who appears to wish career suicide on Ralph. If and when he moves, it sure as h@ll won't be to Tech. What IS your deal about Tech (aside from wishing career suicide on Ralph)? Tech had a pretty decent team 4-5 years ago (after funneling everybody there for football) and still couldn't beat a high end 3A team when Tech was at their apex. Tech is never going to be in the MIC unless it somehow implodes...nor should it be. Wishful thinking at best...delusion at worst. Seriously, Wimmer going from Greenwood to Fishers is somehow surprising, challenging, etc. etc. What coach with half a brain wouldn't jump all over that opportunity? Just a common sense move. Did the legislature legalize hard drugs north of Indianapolis and not tell the rest of us? Do you actually think about half the stuff you put on here?
  3. Got some really sensitive folks here. Southridge won - since they came out of the South I was cheering for them. I was and still am happy for them. BTW (not that he needs me to speak up for him), Irishman is one of the most standup guys here - think we all need to chill a bit.
  4. Wow, didn't realize it was the Mental Attitude award winner... I thought it was a very smooth weekend overall as well.
  5. I am willing to go against the odds and take the bet that the ping - pong" balls somehow find themselves with a Cathedral/Roncalli game in Round 1 of Sectional, though. Called it this year...usually easy money to make that bet.
  6. The mutual PF was a "tough" call...there might have been a few others. That one stood out...someone (from Brebeuf) might well have been ejected if they got that right. The 3A game kind of stood out to me and I thought of it immediately when I saw this thread. I thought it was a little "rough" as regards the officiating. That said, the best team won...perhaps not as easily. Takes something special to be a referee. They are truly rare people. Honestly, though...one of the calls I had the greatest objection to in the playoffs took place the week prior. One of the East Central players was ejected for a "targeting" call in Semistate -which wasn't even close to that. He couldn't play in the State Championship because of that. Again, I am sympathetic to those refereering the game...but it just seems to me you have to be 100% sure before you deny a kid the next game - particularly a State Championship game.
  7. Actually, Coach Streiff's last gig coaching, after he left North Central, (before he went back to Cathedral) was coaching the 4th grade team at St. Matthews. Since there are currently 3 NFL lineman (one a 3...maybe 4 time All-Pro) from the 2004-7 Cadet classes maybe someone needs to reach out to St. Matt's (and yet they NEVER won city during that time....lest you folks misunderstand just how tough CYO football can be). Actually CYOGuru knows...he's won a couple or so.
  8. My personal opinion is that much of the rise of Indiana HS football can be tied to the overarching influence of Peyton Manning...you guys up North and South can feel free to disagree but his influence in Central Indiana (accordant with the Colts success) was seminal in my opinion to the growth in popularity v. Basketball. Frankly, my opinion is that he provided a launching pad. How we stay in orbit is another question.
  9. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    My guess is that anyone human would have felt a little "raw" after being on the losing end of that game regardless of friendship or respect - despite BD being maybe the most dominating team I have ever seen. I credit Coach K for not shooting for the "record" - which he could likely have broken. Best leave that special record to the current recordholder. They seemed to have earned it. My sense is that no one is rabidly pursuing it.
  10. Lowell vs East Central!

    Congrats to the Trojans. They just do what they do. Justevitch was everything advertised and more. The type of game I expected but both teams put the ball in the air a bit more than I anticipated...but then, they had to given the tough run defenses on each side.
  11. Yes. They have 3-4 really impressive playmakers keeping them in the game.
  12. He is a pleasure to watch. It had to be great fun for Memorial fans to see him all year....and they have another year ahead with him.
  13. Lowell vs East Central!

    The 5th is a great Amendment. The 21st being my preferred one, though....5ths involved there as well. Its a great country.
