  1. Very disappointing if that's true. But if I remember correctly they only had about 8-9 guys on last year's team that were not seniors. And I heard they didn't have many 8th graders. So it's got to be an uphill battle. BTW - Congrats on the girls state title! They looked very impressive! I'd expect to see them back in the mix each year until that freshman battery graduates!
  2. I saw that Jack Kiser has now gotten an offer from Notre Dame! Congratulations! Well deserved!
  3. As amazing as Kiser is, if you take him off the Pioneer roster this year, the Panthers are probably still a very strong contender! That's how good that team is! But there are probably 30 other 1A teams in the state that would become instant contenders with the addition of Kiser. That's how good he is! Kiser with the Panthers... unstoppable.
  4. Oak Hill's defacto club basketball team

    Some parents rent their homes. Should their kids be allowed to play? Would the school be receiving the state funding that follows students these days? Does anyone know?
  5. That was incredible! I almost fell off my chair when he did that! Snyder's arm is good enough to throw it that far. Throwing it while on the run... doubt it. But did you see all of Snyder's throws last year? I know you saw one that was perfect. :-) What do you think about the topic of this thread?
  6. Yes I agree on the stats. It's also pretty easy to find open receivers when you throw less than 10% of the time and opposing defenses have to sell out to the run. It's a totally different game these two are playing. I just believe Snyder throws a better ball and Kiser's passing stats would be different if he was not a potent runner and did not have a rushing game that goes for 343 yards a night. I'm not in any way trying to say that James is a better football player than Jack! Nor am I trying to say that Jack could not be a fantastic passer if that was his focus. But I think if you ran them both through a set of throwing drills, James would come out looking pretty good.
  7. Triton's success will depend on its defense. The only person they will lose on offense whose shoes have not already been filled is all-state tight end Drew Stichter. But he only accounted for about 250 yards of offense, so I'm expecting very good things on that side of the ball. Shumpert and Orsund will be the two best receivers in the conference and Snyder is the best passer in the league. (Yes, I think he's a better passer than Kiser.) I can't think of who you're referring to on Knox's team. But whoever he is, he'll need a lot of support from guys that did not play last year. No doubt Knox will be very good! I just don't know if they'll be second-place good. I also think LaVille will be really good! They were a better team last year when Sauer was the QB, but Czarnecki will be improved for the 2018 season I'm sure. No doubt their defense will be stout again. Overall they were young last year, so they have to be in the mix. Culver loses a ton, especially with Tompos jumping ship! I just don't see them getting many W's, but somehow they always seem to win some even when you don't think they should. Winamac loses quite a bit too. But Judson should be better with Wilcox and company coming back. I think the question for Caston is if they will even have a team! Last year they had something like 9 seniors on the 15 man roster. And I thought I heard that they only had a couple of 8th graders. I hope they can pull enough together to field a team. I think you're about right with your prediction. The homer in me says that Triton beats Knox on senior night and finishes in a three-way tie for second with Knox and LaVille. I see the bottom half the way you have them.
  8. I would expect that to change a bit in 2018. LaVille and Triton both return most of their offenses for '18. Sectional 41 won't be deep like 42, but the top two or three should be pretty decent. Not that either will be able to give Pioneer a challenge, but they should be a little better than last year.
  9. I suppose the administrations have changed since Bremen left, so maybe attitudes have changed. My take is that the NLC schools did not want Bremen in the conference in the late 70s and 80s. (I played for Bremen in a football game against Goshen where the Goshen fans were chanting "Bremen out of the conference.") Bremen was too small, and even if they could compete, playing Bremen was a no win situation for the larger schools. So I suppose the burned bridges are more on the side of the other NLC schools. I know Bremen could be competitive in a few sports, but I don't see them as a good fit for the NLC.
  10. No chance the current NLC members allow Bremen back in the conference! They left once, and that bridge is destroyed. No turning back. My money is also on Jimtown.
  11. The not so subtle hints we saw coming from insiders the last few days makes this anti-climactic news! But it is a bit of a surprise! I'm happy for Warsaw and I could see this making a huge impact on the program!
  12. BigtimeDB, I know what you're saying about the end of the road. It's hard to see the dreams fade, especially if it's been a topic of discussion for many years. But the truth is that sometimes playing the game - even if you love it a lot - is not in a kid's best interest for the long term. My senior son has had quite a few calls and letters from NAIA and Dlll programs, but when you put the football opportunities side-by-side with the desired program of study, sometimes it just doesn't make sense from a time or money perspective. Now, I would never discourage a young man from pursuing football if he really wanted to do it on Saturdays! My oldest son chose a school where he could be on the team and live his dream. And I'm glad he did even though he didn't continue after his freshmen season. He decided the time commitment was not worth the return he was getting, but at least he gave it a try. As for reffing, I'm a believer that getting into officiating is a wonderful opportunity for college kids. Not only is it a way to stay in the game, but it's a great paying job compared to what most college kids are getting paid. My oldest son got his wrestling officiating license during his freshman year in college. He worked to get his name out there and began doing some middle school events. Now in his third year, he's done several varsity super duals where he earns $250 - $300 for 5-6 hours of work. It really is a pretty good gig!
  13. Has Hell froze over?

    Check your sources... I believe it's only girls soccer. Could be wrong though. Yup, I was wrong. Girls soccer starting right away, boy's soccer coming later.

    I notice there are no 1A kids on the all-star team. And I don't know the make-up of the region. Maybe there aren't any 1A schools in Region 1. But isn't there a requirement that each class be represented on the North/South rosters? If there aren't any on the region teams that's a problem, isn't it? Does anyone know how many from each class must be placed on the north and south rosters?
  15. 17-18 Region 2 All-Stars

    Triton did run a lot of spread formations. I'd say probably about 50/50 TE and slot.
