  1. Wow, great. Now, what about the schools well below the poverty line that have to fight tooth and nail just to get lines painted on the field...Let alone find parents with enough gas money to get players back and forth to practice.
  2. The adrenaline dump, playing condition climate, fluid intake...all has to be taken into consideration when playing later into the year at LOS. Better believe experience plays a big part in preparation for those. This. What is legal, is legal. OL coaches teach proper technique/angles for issuing and DL coaches teach proper technique for defending...Or in most 1A/2A football, the line coach handles both
  3. Woodlan pretty much crapped the bed on that last possession. Great coverage and pressure by SR on the pass attempts. With decent field position and more than enough time, I don’t like Woodlan getting behind the sticks with chucking the ball. QB should have had an RPO to at least have a chance to gain some yardage if no one was open, especially with 2 timeouts left.
  4. SR touchdown on a Middle screen with 1:22 left. Looks like a 2-pt try coming up. Have to question the Woodlan defensive back not playing the sticks on the 4th and 5. 2-pt conversion good on a sprint out pass.
  5. Funny how the football Gods often show up any time a QB throws back across the field. Tough break there on that INT. I haven’t watched all of the game, been flipping back and forth. With the way Woodlan is sending pressure off of the edge, SR needs to drag the backside wing on a mini-sprint out by the QB. The safety is too deep and Woodlan is going to be drastically outnumbered with sending personnel
  6. Big call here on 4th and 6. Offense is at a premium for Woodlan. TOUCHDOWN!!!
  7. Still 7-7. Game is a little sloppy.
  8. What you posted is what I was trying to say, clearly didn’t come out correctly. I was not beating the parochial bush, I was speaking of Lutheran in particular. The semi state game was played in Lutherans backyard and they had very few fans. Granted, it was freezing but I’d say NV alone nearly tripled the fan base, and that’s included with the casual Indy area fan likely sitting on the home side due to availability. The following year at the Regional wasn’t any better, especially considering I knew how Scecina traveled back to back years prior. Again, wasn’t a parochial bash, just a hunch specifically with Lutheran.
  9. I picked Lutheran to represent the south over the summer, always with an asterisk, though. I’m beginning to wonder if there is true unity amongst those on that roster. I won’t get into the parochial school recruiting, etc, as that is a beaten horse. But, watching teams like North Vermillion, Linton, and Eastern Greene make it to Thanksgiving weekend, really makes me ponder if growing up with your friends and playing for a community is making the difference here? Pasch (spelling) appears to be a good coach with good assistants around him (and a lot of them) so what’s the difference maker? In my limited experience watching LuHi over the years, it sure seems like when the chips are down, the cards are mucked and it’s basketball season (2015 regional at NV is a good example of being front runners). EG took advantage of that (and the Jones injury) but that won’t happen at LOS. Congratulations to Eastern. Enjoy your experience, it is one for a lifetime. Pioneer 34 - Eastern Greene 13
  10. Always wanted to sit in that yard on the visitor’s side and have a cold one watching a game
  11. Pioneer made a tunnel and ran through a banner in the 2014 state game. When you're as good as they are, you do what you want. Or should I say...."The Pioneers" as the majority of our fans from North Vermillion called them for a year straight
  12. Better than the head of the FB if the center on midline doesn't create a path. Or the center's midline, for that matter.
  13. I had the chance to listen to Coach Johnson speak about his offense (and overall program) in a small group setting. That guy had a fire in his eye that left zero thought about why his program(s) were successful. I walked away thinking there was no other offensive concept in the world to even consider.
  14. Agreed. Clearly getting to LOS is a great feat, but EH really chit the bed that game. Apparently it was enough to get their coach a huge increase in football classification and likely pay at Zionsville.
  15. Nope, Pioneer wins 1a again in 2018
  16. I bet you $0.82 and Reb’s stack of Jerry Seinfeld DVDs that you can’t make a football-related post without mentioning Linton.
  17. Definitely an oddity that Lutheran doesn’t pack that parochial prowess. In fact, just the opposite, being knocked out of the tournament by a rural public school for several years that I can remember. Congrats to EG!
  18. 2014 1a south semi-state North Vermillion at Indianapolis Lutheran was played at Indianapolis Roncalli. If memory serves, I believe that may have been due to a combination of seating and playing surface at LuHi's old facility; perhaps primarily seating but remember grumblings of bad field conditions too. I remember the boys taking the field at Roncalli and having ice still on the turf - it was a cold one.
  19. Does the kitchen sink include wearing flip-flops to work year-round? I think that’s a +1 to stay at NV.
  20. Meurer was one of the best high school football players I’ve ever watched. I just wanted to cast a wide net to do exactly as you stated, poke the bear. All in fun, MP. Linton, as a whole, will forever have my respect from on and off the field interactions.
  21. Wow, it’s been 3 hours since Hops’ post and there is only one reply defending a guaranteed Linton legend on a 1a thread?? The 2a smackdown has Miner Nation slipping!
  22. North Vermillion was lucky enough to catch LuHi early in Andre Jones’ career. I still can’t figure out why he didn’t get the ball more his freshman year during the semi-state game. Having the ball in his hands on every play was a great move by the coaching staff. I don’t know the demeanor of the Lutheran team this season, but I can tell you that size didn’t equate to success in the past. A kid with great measurements can quickly be compromised if he has a poor motor and a lackluster attitude. Even with that being said, I’m sticking with my summer prediction of Pioneer vs Lutheran in the finals.
  23. http://www.gcdailyworld.com/story/2458925.html Good grief, it looks like that QB may have injured his hand in a bar fight. What is he, 35?
  24. So would a weak(er) overall schedule, according to Sag, hurt EG? WRC fan but if what I have read about the T-Birds is true, I have to go with them by 2+ scores 38-20 or somewhere in there.
