  1. CIC WEEK 6

    I have to say that I thought this was an interesting comment too. Probably not the most tasteful way to be funny. Plus he uses the wrong "To" in his name. That bugs me as well. With Elwood, there was no way they were going to win their first 4 games. Between ALL 4 of their opponents, there are only 3-4 loses. Now Oak Hill on the other hand??? It sounds like they are pretty bad this year. Losing 21-0 sounds like there was not much effort on the Panthers part. Looking at the wrestlers they have, Cornwell, Morgan, Stone, and Wilson (I will always consider him a wrestler even though he quit), they should be able to do SOMETHING with those athletes against Oak Hill. I have seen Cornwell pick up legit 220lb wrestlers like they are rag dolls. Morgan has wrestled 182 while weighting in the 60's, and Stone is just an athletic big man. If you can't find a way to do something with this group, I am not sure what to tell you. Cornwell is athletic enough, I'm not sure I wouldn't put him at fullback and say "come and get some". Or even put Cornwell and Stone together and use Morgan as a fullback with Wilson?? Maybe they have tried all these and nothing works? Who knows?? I honestly have not seen them play this year, so I really have no clue. How are their injuries?
  2. CIC WEEK 6

    C'Mon Man! What next, you goin' tell me that Ball State's big win against Tennessee Tech is a turning point in the Card's program. The CIC has to be in the bottom 5-10 out of 38 conferences in Indiana. The way I see it based of the Saragin Ratings, Indianapolis, Mid-Indiana, Midwest, Patoka Lake, and Southwest conferneces, AS A WHOLE, are just below CIC. The rest, once again AS A WHOLE, have a better average ranking. If you compare small school conference to small school conference, look at Hoosier North who has 13 sectional champions in the last 10 years, compared to the CIC who has 5 (thank you eastbrook)! The truth is, the CIC is just not good football right now. We have some great kids, some really good coach, average coaches, and a couple not so great but as a whole it is a good mix. It is just not a solid football conference. Nothing wrong with that.
  3. CIC WEEK 6

    Alex @ Blackford Blackford wins this with its continued ground and pound football. 27-7 Frankton @ Elwood If the Elwood staff learned anything from the Blackford film, they might be able to keep this one close. I don't see that happening. Frankton 48-0. Madison Grant @ Mississinewa Although Ole Miss proved to be a below average 4A team last week, losing to a 2A public school 42-21, they will continue to flex their muscles on the weak and win 74-0. I don't care how good Eastbrook is. They can win the state championship in 2A. They are not one of the Catholic recruiting powerhouses. Ole Miss should not be losing to a 2A program and think I am going to consider them a legit solid 4A team. Put them in the HHC and they are not even close to being mentioned as a good football program! Oak Hill @ Eastbrook Sorry Oak Hill. Long night ahead for you. Eastbrook 56-0. Why is the CIC such bad football = Blame it on the Russians.
  4. CIC Week 5

    Elwood @ Oak Hill: Something tells me that Oak Hill is really really bad! This will be a close game of really bad football. Panthers 14-7 Madison Grant @ Alexandria: I feel bad for the MG staff. Hopefully the young ones stay strong and keep fighting but Alex gets this one Tigers 36-8 Frankton @ Blackford This one could get interesting. The Bruins are building confidence and the Eagles have a QB that just knows how to compete. It might come down to the Eagles receivers stepping up and making big plays and the D-line winning the battle in the trenches. If the Bruins can ground and pound and keep McGuire and Berkibile on the sideline offensively, they might have a shot. I don't see it happening though. I have too much faith in the Eagles senior group. Eagles 20-14. Mississinewa @ Eastbrook: Top CIC game of the year. It is hard for me to ever buy into Ole Miss when all they do is beat up on 2A schools. I know it not their fault but they have to beat someone for me to get to excited about them. Eastbrook is a great program but the 4A size might be tough for this one. Here is my prediction: Ole Miss 24-21. However, if Tom Wilson is back on the sideline and has a fully groomed Mullet, I will have to change my prediction to Eastbrook 27-21. The mullet makes the difference in this match up.
  5. CIC WEEK 4

    What is going on at Madison Grant? How can they only have 1 senior and 6 juniors playing on the team? Is it just the senior class and all across the school sports or it just a football thing? Their schedule is too easy to be getting beat 267-8 (math might be a little off). 1 touchdown in 4 games????? APA might be able to beat them with those numbers.
  6. CIC WEEK 4

    Thank you! I am very sensitive and need as much positive feedback as I can get. This makes me feel less bitter.
  7. CIC WEEK 4

    BTW CIC World...... Can someone give me some darn props on my prediction last week????? I said the running score for last week would be 197-25. The actual running score when the clock hit all zeros was 192-25. That is a pretty good prediction if I dont mind honking my own horn. Get those silly kickers better and maybe I would have been perfect!

  9. CIC Week 3

    Eastbrook at Elwood = Not even close 48-0 (only because Jeff pulls of the dogs early) Frankton at Madison Grant = 65-18 Mississinewa at Blackford = 63-0 Oak Hill at Alexandria = This one will be the most even of the week. It looks like Oak Hill is going to struggle this year. Possibly 4th or 5th in the CIC. Even with that, Alexandria will still not have enough to win this match up. 21-7 My prediction for the Winning Scores vs the Losing score = 197-25. CIC is such BAD football right now!
  10. CIC Week 2

    On paper this looks nice but you are under estimating the athletic ability and intelligence of McGuire (not to mention he is just an outstanding young man all around). He can break just about anyones ankles when he is healthy and I am assuming he is. Midway through last season he was playing on a bum knee and still getting yards on his feet. No one on the CIC schedule will give them a test until EB and Ole Miss.
  11. CIC Week 2

    I was going to avoid this thread as I have retired from high school football and now I am coaching 3rd and 4th graders. However, I will always take pleasure in pointing out my boys faults: It was 87-18 Pal! Don't rob us of those 4 points!!! I do not condone nor condemn the 87-0 score. I am pretty sure the APA coach would have done the same when he was at Anderson Highland. Either way, that was week 1 and you are still talking about it. Get over it and move to week 3. And for the love of mankind Cheifbabydiaperthrowingsocks do your research before posting!!
