  1. Uhmm, no, it isn't. A defunct school has no choice. They can't play football. See Spot Run. An existing school has a choice--football, or no football. Two in 50 years have dropped football permanently to this point--and both dropped 35, 40 years ago. I didn't include Fishers or Parke Heritage as "adding" football--that's gilding things a bit. But 10 of the schools on the add list are old schools--Boone, Crawford Co, Eastern Greene, Eastern Pekin, Hanover, Monroe Cnt, Scottsburg, Silver Creek, Switz, and Wheeler. And all added football the last 20 years, most much more recently than that. The others are newer schools, or in a few cases newer to IHSAA play. If football was on such a downward spiral, I doubt they would have done that.
  2. The schools closed. Odd way to look at "we dropped football"
  3. Others can add and subtract to this list--and I'm too lazy to look these schools up to confirm, but: Indiana schools in the last 50 years that have dropped football: 2 total--Hamilton ('80's), Morristown (added & dropped in the 80's)----Hanover Central (70's dropped, now readded), Scottsburg (70's dropped, now readded) Indiana schools that have added football in the last 20 years: 20 total--Anderson Prep, Boone Grove, Bowman, Covenant Christian, Crawford County, Eastern Greene, Eastern Pekin, Guerin, Heritage Christian, Lutheran, Tindley, Lighthouse East, Monroe Central, Oldenburg, Rock Creek, Silver Creek, Switzerland County, Traders Point, Trinity Lutheran, Wheeler----Scottsburg and Hanover make 22 if you want to count them. 25 if you want Attucks, Shortridge, and Washington, but those may not be fair since they closed and have added football since re-opening.
  4. Any truth to the rumor their deluxe model's going to be called, The Muda?
  5. That’s correct. The IHSAA has tried to salve member school’s laments of “we can’t win” for the last 20 years.Additional classed sports, additional football classes, success factors. Seeding flies directly in the face of that mantra. It will never happen with the current leadership.
  6. Neutral sites would require a rental fee which would take $ out of the IHSAA's pocket with no apparent return on that investment--so it's not happening. Not spending any more than is necessary. The IHSAA earned their bones on the cash-cow of a single-class basketball tournament---that revenue stream is only a trickle now. Got to make up the shortfall anyway they can. As an example, the $2000 it costs to now become an IHSAA member--used to be $1 not long ago.
  7. Paoli-Monrovia was moved to Plainfield a few years back. Monrovia’s field conditions were the issue, but they couldn’t have handled the crowd that night at home either.
