  1. Sagarin has the line at Brebeuf -12.5. Having seen the first game, both teams against Roncalli, and both teams against a different opponent, I wouldn't touch that line with a 50' poll. No outcome for this game would be truly surprising to me. Really excited to cover it tomorrow. For what it's worth, there are a ton of great kids and wonderful people on both sides (and at all of the CCC schools). They have been a fun group to cover.
  2. For what it's worth, I've been told Brebeuf will not be broadcasting the game. There is a real possibility The Cube was simply overlooked. Either way, it will be available on a variety of platforms.
  3. I've floated a similar idea on here before (several times). Go to a 10 week season. 192 teams make the playoffs. The others get a bye week followed by the chance to play an opponent of their choosing on the Saturday of Sectional finals. You could host them at different locations around the state with 3-4 games per location. The plus side, all teams get to practice for at least 12 game weeks instead of the 10 roughly half get now. Also, bad teams get to have a fun road trip experience playing against either a rival or team of similar ability instead of getting their doors blown off. Integrity of the tournament remains.
  4. Cathedral vs Roncalli

    He is no longer there.
  5. It’s more review than preview this week, so I apologize for the lack of insight provided. At worst, it gives a “Previously on...” and up to date offensive stats. Shout out to Shawn Crull for the original template.
  6. Driven T without the Horde is just Tim Phillips posting on some podunk Region board with 15 members. Wonder how many potential IPS kids wore the Flashes White and Blue over their 20 years of relevance. - FTFY
  7. Jebus, people. Let me explain the joke. FC people love to talk about the good old days. Sadly, they have had only a few above average teams since the early 90’s. Every year, they brag and boast about how they are back. Sadly, with the exception of a few Lance Scheib years, they have always gone on to losing records. Yet, hope spring eternal. So, see, the joke is that they haven’t been good since the glory days of the eighties and that since then, they have been so bad as to have only won 50 games in 30 years. See, that’s the joke. They have clearly won more than 50 games in the last 30 years, like at least 65 or so.
  8. In all seriousness, congrats to the Franklin Central Flashes on their 400th victory tonight. There are some really good things going over there.
  9. I don't have have the stats but I remember going to meetings where USA Football stated youth football participation was declining at a rate of close to 10% each season. These meetings occurred three-to-four years ago.
  10. No. I’m talking about Franklin Central. It’s a South Side thing.
  11. Krauthammer’s going to weigh in?
  12. I remember when they got to 350 back in October of ‘84. Was quite the party.
  13. Every year I say this, but what the hell. The all-in tournament is *Deleted*ic for a number of reasons. I was not originally in this camp, but then I did the research. Then I spent time coaching on teams who had absolutely no chance of getting out of a sectional. There is no sound logic behind it. There are really easy ways to cut it down to 32 teams per class. One could make a pretty strong case for cutting it down to 16 since no team lower than 13 has ever made it to the state finals. Cutting two rounds off of the tournament gives everyone an 11 game regular season. How much better would it be to end your 2-8 regular season run with a rivalry game you have a chance in rather than getting run off the field 66-0 by a team everyone knows you can’t beat? Plus, half the teams in the state are getting a bonus 11th game instead of the ten they normally get.
