  1. NFHS Rules Questionnaire

    In the first group, yes to #3 & #4 Second group, yes to #1, #4 only at state games, & maybe #7 only on plays starting within the redzone.
  2. LC job opening

    Exactly what I was thinking, except for maybe to the next level...
  3. Financially, no question... not sure about your reasoning however...
  4. I think it's a good fix, but now we will just hear how #3 has to play #1 in really competitive sectionals. There will always be a squeaky wheel. Which ones will get the grease?
  5. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    Congrats to BD for being the first 2-time State Champs in 6A football!!!
  6. Agree with them or not, the IHSAA is the governing body of varsity football, and every other varsity sport in Indiana. They do so much more than just decide if teams should be seeded. The opportunity they present these kids is incredible. Without the IHSAA, there is no tournament at all. Sectional champs, Regional Champs, Semi-State Champs. There is no Lucas Oil. There is no rule placement to protect the players from injury. There is no officiating crews to cover every team. There is no structure... etc... If you are bashing on the IHSAA, I DARE you to have a conversation with Bobby Cox. The dude is in it for all the right reasons. Agree or disagree with how he goes about doing things, but don't be saying he doesn't care. We are lucky to have someone that genuinely cares about the kids. If you don't know what you are talking about, that's fine, but don't drag people through the mud that don't deserve it. I don't agree with everything the IHSAA does and says, but I sure respect the crap out of their mission to give ALL student-athletes a chance to compete and succeed. Again... If you haven't talked to him or even heard him speak in person, stop bashing the man for "not caring." He has good intentions for all players, coaches, and refs. Rant over. Good luck to all the teams at state! Even the ones that had bad draws in sectionals!
  7. This may be a big or small part of the stance against seeding... People are already arguing seeds when we don't even have them!!! Yes, it is his opinion that keeping this format is best for everyone involved. Unfortunately, many disagree, but if you've ever met the guy, he means nothing but great things for the players, coaches, and refs. Sometimes what is right is not always popular, and what is popular is not always right.
  8. Game of the weekend?!?

    3A and 4A could be the closest games. Really excited to watch them all though. Very interesting match-ups!!!
  9. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    Watch the video on page 1 of this thread. Plenty of passing.
  10. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    I hope you are right!!!
  11. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    14? Yowsers! BD will score 14 in the first half, and possibly the 1st quarter. Penn will have to "outscore" BD to win (channeling my inner-Madden). They won't be holding them to a low score.... at least not as low as 14
  12. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    BD has been held to 31 only one time this season. I'm going to venture a guess that you will need to score at least 40 to beat those dudes. Maybe 50. I hope Penn makes it a game. Good luck to you guys!
  13. Crazy that these are the only 2 P/P's in the Finals Congrats to both schools!
  14. Had to get one in there! Was happy to back you guys up though if needed. Was ready to drive my 3 month old 20 minutes to our school and another 30 to Danville! Got a good friend on the staff at Memorial. Am very happy to see him get a shot to stand on the turf at LOS! Congrats again!
  15. Anyone that has seen the strength and speed of Southridge was certainly giving them a chance.
  16. Memorial coaches, make sure you leave your headsets in Evansville for Lucas Oil. Gotta use theirs! Congrats Guys!!!
  17. Haven't seen him play, but apparently you haven't seen BD's QB play either...
  18. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    After watching BD first hand, it's clear that they are the best team in the state. They appear to be one of the most talented teams I've ever seen in the state of Indiana. Would be fun to see how they matched up against the likes of the mid 2000's Warren Teams. As for the state game. Penn better bring it. Hope they have an answer for this QB. Otherwise this could be a long game. I won't count them out (being that I haven't seen them play) but I gotta believe these Giants are too much to handle. Either that, or we'll see the biggest upset, maybe of all time! I'll go BD 44-20
  19. Strange, since it's not turf
  20. That's pretty cool. I will admit that I fear change a little... I also don't think that the crowds would be as big at a neutral site though. Road teams travel with less fans than a home team has sitting in the stands (typically) In my opinion, the people from that host town wouldn't make up the difference of 2 "away" teams in most cases. I'm sure it would work out great for some schools, but I think the improvement would be underwhelming if at all. I'll listen to the semi-state debate all day. But sectionals and regionals... Nah!
  21. I've seen one Danville game and the kicker missed 2 or 3 in that one... that may be indicative of the rest of the season, it may not. I don't know
  22. It's a matter of opinion, like most other topics on this site. Unlike your first post states, it appears you actually do have an opinion. Stand by your opinion and be proud of it! I completely understand why you have that opinion. I think it's ok to play in a muddy mess, and you don't. It's ok to disagree... Yes, it's fair to think it's unfair. Life will never be 100% fair. What's next, neutral sites for regionals? Sectional Champs? etc... Someone will always think something is unfair. Especially in today's world. Have a great day!
  23. Both teams have to play on the same field. Whoever can handle it better will win. BD/Avon playing on turf does not affect Pioneer/MC playing on grass.
  24. Ben Davis vs Avon

    Avon- 41 BD- 40 Two late touchdowns by Avon and a two point conversion to take the lead! Wishful thinking but anything can happen!! Good luck to both teams, have fun and stay healthy!!!
  25. Center Grove @ Avon

    It is pretty scary to think of what Steele will be in 3 years... Dude is QUICK! And strong (for a frosh)
