  1. SW Indiana football 2018

    Doesn’t the Evans RB have to sit a game anyways no matter where he goes in Indiana for his ejection from the regional?
  2. SW Indiana football 2018

    He was. But the sophomore coming in this year might be able to surpass him. Why I’m glad I don’t have to make those decisions? Well, not bad mouthing because I really liked the kid, but he had some deficiencies that would have kept him off the field behind others. But I am not going to be a gossip monger, so I will leave it there. Will wish him luck and move on. Not the first player Reitz has lost to transfer, and I doubt he will be the last.
  3. SW Indiana football 2018

    Nothing much to tell. Biggest news was the transfer of a RB to Central. Nothing else. Biggest questions are going to be who will start at QB (if it is a true competition), and how will the secondary hold up (hit hard by graduation.)
  4. SW Indiana football 2018

    This topic should have been called Tigers V. Titans with some Central love sprinkled in.
  5. That would give 30 yards on a non play. Solution to that 50 yard walk off is simple. Don’t hold.
  6. All holding should be previous spot fouls. I hate seeing a holding called down field on say a first and 10, and after marking off the penalty, it now becomes first and 2. Basically, the offense gains 8 yards on a non play. So, I believe that it should be previous spot on all holding calls.
  7. Central vs East Central

    First, New Tech is a “charter” school that is run by the EVSC, but any student in the state may attend (class size of 100 students). That is a totally different can of worms that I will never wish to get into, as my son attended New Tech. It is a school that does not offer extracurriculars. AIS is a school that kids who have been kicked out or have discipline issues are sent to. It is also run by the EVSC. These students may or may not be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities. If they are eligible, they must participate at the school that their home address is in the district of. Evansville has a “limited” open enrollment policy. Students (and parents) must decide where the child will attend before their freshman year, and then, there are other small factors that go in to it, but that is the deadline. A student may live in Bosse’s district, but could choose to attend North. If all criteria is met, that child would be a student at North, and would be counted as a North student for school classification. If the studen would then after that point get kicked out of North, they would be ordered to attend AIS. Now, that student would be counted as a Bosse student since his address is located in Bosse’s district. The EVSC turns in the numbers for the public schools in Evansville to the IHSAA for school classifications. That is why the big debate over AIS, the students, and the counts.
  8. Central vs East Central

    AIS students may play for whatever high school district their home address is located in. That has been the problem with those kids being counted, as schools have kids counted for them that have never even stepped foot in the school.
  9. Central vs East Central

    Wink, wink, nudge, nudge
  10. Central vs East Central

    He used to be an assistant coach at Central.
  11. Seeding pretty much not happening

    It is a lot of moving parts, but it is a real possibility in sectional 24. We almost saw it happen this year. It broke down like this: Team A, Evansville Reitz Team B, Evansville Central Team C, Jasper Team D, Northview Team E, Evansville Memorial Reitz, Central, and Memorial all play in the SIAC. Jasper plays Memorial in their non conference schedule. Plays in Big 8 Northview plays no common opponents, and plays in the WIC. Thanks for for your answer.
  12. Seeding pretty much not happening

    A question for you. More like a situation. Let’s say it like this. You have four teams in one sectional that finish the season 8-1. Team A beat Team B, Team C and Team D do not play any of the other teams in head to head match ups. Now, three teams listed above play Team E (in a different class). Team A lost to Team E, Team B beats Team E, and Team C lost to Team E. Team D plays no common opponents to the other three teams. Question is, who would be the 1 seed, who would be the 2 seed (and receive home games) and which two would go back into the draw? Why would it be this way? I ask because this scenario can very easily happen this coming year.
  13. Seeding pretty much not happening

    While I have gripes about the top 2 teams meeting early, my biggest complaint has been that we in the south typically see the same teams time and again in the tournament. Example: Evansville Central, Reitz, Bosse, and Harrison all play in the SIAC, and all 4 are in sectional 24. Evansville North (also a conference member) is on the cusp of dropping to 4A, and Evansville Memorial (another conference member) could be bumped up to 4A putting 6 teams from the SIAC in sectional 24 (since I know the IHSAA won’t put North or Memorial in sectional 22 or 23). Just in SIAC teams, you would (most likely) have to play two teams that you have already played to win the sectional. While us down in the Evansville area and in eastern Indiana have to play the same teams over and over, we watch as Indianapolis high schools get split amongst several sectionals. Yes, more schools, but there is also more shifting in sectionals every two years. While it might be an unpopular choice, I wish they would seed the field 1-32 (north and south). I really don’t see what the big deal of playing some games on Saturday. At least teams would get to see teams that they don’t normally see.
  14. 4A schools remaining

    EC is the same that they always are. Big, mean, and nasty up front (no lineman goes less than 200), and is not a big play machine. They are very happy chewing up 3 to 5 yards per carry, and their tailback would much rather run you over rather than run around you. They will keep the clock running and keep the chains moving. Oh, and they will not hurt themselves with penalties.
  15. Reitz vs Central Part 2

    Something else that hasn't been mentioned is that for the MD game, Reitz was without both starting cornerbacks in Dunham and Fox. We saw mostly Spain and Elder at CB, with Sargent filling in some. While both did have decent games at cornerback, it wasn't the same. However, now it is survive and advance.
