  1. It is interesting how much it has thrown a hitch in the sagarin ratings. I compared Sagarin top 10 to Calpreps top 10 over all the classes and it was pretty interesting. 6A Sagarin 6A Calpreps 1 Ben Davis 1 Ben Davis 2 Avon 2 Avon 3 Center Grove 3 Warren Central 4 F.W.

  2. Roncalli doesn't just look really, really good this year they are very good. As far as a Roncalli vs Cathedral match-up. I think it depends on which Cathedral team they play. Do they play a rather healthy Cathedral team? RB Stepp and FB Mencer did not play in week 5 against Cincinnati St. Xavier, and WR Collins went out with an injury. Stepp also had very limited carries (9) against Chatard, in the previous 3 games prior to that he had 18, 17, and 13 carries. There are areas I think Roncalli has an advantage against Cathedral, but other areas Cathedral has more of an advantage. Cathedral will more than likely have the biggest and strongest Offensive Line that Roncalli has seen if they get to play each other. Below are the strength advantages (just from watch both teams) in my own personal opinion (assuming both teams are healthy). RHS Off Line vs CHS Def Line/LB's 6 = Advantage CHS RHS Off WR's vs CHS Def DB's = Advantage RHS RHS Off Run vs CHS Def Run = Advantage CHS RHS Off Pass vs CHS Def Pass = Advantage RHS CHS Off Line vs RHS Def Line = Advantage CHS CHS Off WR's vs RHS Def DB's = Advantage CHS (slightly) CHS Off Run vs RHS Def Run = Advantage CHS CHS Off Pass vs RHS Def Pass = Advantage CHS (slightly) CHS Special Teams vs RHS Special Teams = Slight edge to RHS When Cathedral elected to stay in 5A some on here felt it would be a walk through for them. This is not the case Cathedral will be challenged by some 5A schools and very possibly could lose to one on any given night. Make no mistake Cathedral is a very good football team despite the current 1-4 record. I have not seen a 5A school yet that would fair better than a 1-4 record against the 5 teams Cathedral has played thus far. I do however feel there are teams that will compete very well with Cathedral in 5A
  3. Class 6A-2017

    I think Snider can hang with most of the teams in the MIC. Ben Davis however is on a different level this year. They have been very dominant. I did get to watch Snider play Homestead they are very good, but I personally feel they are not on a level with Ben Davis. Of course like I said anything can happen from now until Thanksgiving weekend so there is a lot of football to be played.
  4. Class 6A-2017

    Yes they have beaten Carmel. The last time they beat Carmel was 2004, and Snider went on to play for the 5A state championship falling to Warren Central 35-23. F.W. Snider is in my opinion the favorite to be in the State Championship from the North. Carmel is not as good as they have been in the past but they are not terrible. Ben Davis is in my opinion the favorite from the South and they will have tough match-ups along the way. This is of course barring any injuries. Right now having been able to see F.W. Snider play and Ben Davis play, my opinion is that Ben Davis would win 9 out of 10 times. That being said this is High School football and anything can happen on any given night, neither team could make it to the State Championship and if they did Snider could upset Ben Davis. Still more football to be played hopefully all the teams stay healthy from here on out.

    Harry Doyle: In case you haven't noticed, and judging by the attendance you haven't, the Indians have managed to win a few here and there, and are threatening to climb out of the cellar Love that movie
  6. Ben Davis at Center Grove

    Yes Cathedral beat Lawrence North (3-7) and 2nd to last in the MIC in 2015 and Lawrence Central (3-6) 5th in the MIC in 2015. They were a wisker away from beating Avon but they still lost. In 2016 they beat Lawrence North (4-5) 6th in the MIC and Lawrence Central (6-4) 5th in the MIC both games went to OT. I'm not saying that Cathedral is not good. They are very good and last year although you want to keep mentioning those D-1 prospects they were without them a majority of the year. You are correct Mr. Yeast did not throw passes to himself, the QB dumped of some short passes and he turned in some major YAC. He also played as a Defensive Back breaking up a few passes. My point is both teams (Cathedral and Center Grove) played a a team and not individuals. CG had their D-1 prospect and he put them over the top. Having Mr. Stepp more than likely would have had an impact on the game for the Irish. Do you agree? They didn't have him and still competed very well. In the BD game Mr Stepp saw limited carries and Cathedral was forced to throw more when they needed to run the ball to keep BD's offense off the field. Something Center Grove did very well against Ben Davis when they played them.

    Just to be clear I do agree with your post. I just wanted to add to it the out of state opponents. It bumped Chatard down a few spots but they will climb a little more. You enjoy the rest of the season as well!
  8. Ben Davis at Center Grove

    Trojan Dad, I will state that the best TEAM usually wins. That being said there are years where individual talents of a player or a couple of players gives enough for the team to win. Having attended last years Cathedral at Center Grove game. Cathedral had more D-1 prospects (mind you not all of those D-1 prospects were playing but most were) than Center Grove, but in that 44-41 OT victory for Center Grove it came down to an individuals effort and play. That individual was Russ Yeast. Center Grove had 276 yards total Offense and 6 TD's, Yeast accounted for 231 of those 276 total yards and 5 of those 6 TD's (Rushing -13 carries 19 yds, Receiving - 7 Rec 212 yds 5 TD's). That wasn't the best example of a team effort. Granted Center Grove had a very good team and so did Cathedral. Center Grove played no better as a complete team than Cathedral did as a team. Center Grove while having a good team, the talents of Mr. Yeast pushed them over the edge to be a great team. The night that Cathedral played Ben Davis, BD pretty much beat them in every facet of the game a total team effort it was very dominant. The offensive performance they put on Cathedral was pretty much what we have seen in each of the last 4 weeks from Ben Davis this year. Last year they were more inconsistent. This year they have been for the most part consistent.
  9. IFCA Poll Week 5

    I agree with pretty much everything you've stated. I will also add to your statement that the Strength of Schedule is from Sagarin which does not incorporate any out of State competition. There are 13 plus teams with 1 or more out of state opponents. You can look at Calpreps which gives a SOS like Sagarin but includes out of state opponents in the calculation. As it stands right now (it will constantly change as opponents of teams win or lose) here are the top 10 SOS. 1. Warren Central 62.4 2. Cathedral 51.6 3. Center Grove 51.3 4. Pike 49.0 5. Carmel 46.8 6. North Central 44.6 7. Bishop Chatard 44.5 8. Avon 43.4 9. Lawrence North 43.2 10. Lawrence Central 41.8
  10. I remember being at that game final score was 4-3 Ben Davis.
  11. IFCA Poll Week 5

    I personally would have Bishop Chatard at #4. I don't care about records or tradition. I base that solely on the way they have played on the field. Offensively and Defensively. Chatard plays differently now than they ever did in the past scheme wise. I think they played very well in the games they have played. Even in the losses they have had to Larence Central, Roncalli, and Cathedral they did a lot of things very well. I love their QB he is a good one.
  12. IFCA Poll Week 5

    I'm not sure what you mean. Yes Chatard was a tough opponent last year even for Danville who beat them in Sectionals 40-35. I don't think I stated they were going to win anything just stated they would be a nightmare for any team in 3A. This holds true for a few other teams too.
  13. IFCA Poll Week 5

    Sagarin rankings are good, but it has a flaw in it doesn't account for any of the Out of State opponents. Calpreps accounts for all opponents and gives a very good idea on where teams are.
  14. IFCA Poll Week 5

    Where did you see Bishop Chatard at #3? I will say though that Bishop Chatard played well against 6A #2 Lawrence Central and 5A #1 Roncalli they will be a nightmare for teams in 3A even sitting at 1-3 (losses to Larence Central, Roncalli, and Cathedral) 3A1.
