  1. Jason Simmons will be highly effective at a school who, to be frank, needs his discipline. Will he win football games? I believe he will.. Will he produce quality young people who better their family trees and make generational changes? Undoubtedly. I would want my son to play for him and would be honored to coach on his staff. Mark my words, years from now people will reflect that Ben Davis was lucky to make such a quality hire.
  2. It's always interesting to me to see the contrast between the military's approach to discipline and athletics. Which one has been more successful at producing qualified leaders who can be counted on in the clutch?
  3. http://circlecityconference.com/2018/03/02/coach-smiths-golden-eagles-prepared-for-sectional-showdown/ Takes a look at Coach Smith and the Golden Eagles ahead of tonight’s game with Cardinal Ritter
  4. A year ago, Chatard had lost 23 of 25 games dating back to the previous season. Since then, they have split their last 20 (8-9 on this season). Read how Coach Brian Shaughnessy has changed their culture by empowering players and preaching accountability and service to others. http://circlecityconference.com/2018/02/06/shaughnessy-reframes-trojans-focus-to-one-of-service-and-accountability/
  5. ...and actually it’s “Who is” in this case, but I know you are not one to quibble over details.
  6. Daddy is going to be mad when he gets home and sees how you derailed his thread.
  7. Mercy Rule

    Watching my friend Jason Mensing lead the Ottawa Lake Whiteford Bobcats to a Michigan Div 8 State Championship, I noticed they run the clock once the lead hits 35. This is something we really should consider in a Indiana.
  8. Along the same vein, Brebeuf is working on a fairly historic fall as well. Their football team will also be their third to appear in a state championship (alongside Girls XC and Volleyball). They also had two Boys XC runners compete in the state finals. Depending on the source, their Girls Soccer team was the top ranked team in the state and a top 25 team in the nation during the regular season. Hopefully they can cap it off with a win Friday afternoon.
  9. Thanks for this. I had not been able to put my finger on why Coach Streiff decided to retire. Clearly, it's the success factor. Must have been what ran Coach Scifres off, too. It's all coming together now.
  10. State Title Games

    It would be interesting to see how many private schools are playing up right now. In other words, how much role did the success factor play. Obviously, Cathedral and Roncalli are up, but they would have been in the same 4A Sectional, playing "at" Cathedral in the first round of the sectional regardless. Ritter was playing up in 3A, but they were beaten by Scecina. Anyone else I'm not thinking of (admittedly don't follow the rest of the state that close)?
  11. No upvote? System is broke...
