  1. Any news out of Linton?

    I wonder who will be quarterback this season. Dyer?
  2. Haven't heard a peep yet on how the team will look this year. Anyone got anything? Who will be the starting qb? I am thinking it will be Dyer.
  3. Jack Kiser Commits to Notre Dame

    Very possible. Nick Zackery played in 4 while at Sheridan unless I am mistaken.

    Oops, my bad.

    Haven't posted in a while. Just wanted to comment on how well Ballard has done with the offensive line this off season. Of course my comment is purely speculation, but talent wise, the line has improved dramatically over what it has been the past several years. I think the Tight End group got better with the acquisition of Ebron and loved the pick of Hines at running back. I believe he will be a Sproles type of guy for the Colts. They are going to use him all over the field and probably as a returner on special teams. He isn't all that big but man is he quick! Have heard he is already Reich's favorite toy on the offense. And Luck is actually throwing a football. Only a few more weeks until camp starts! Lots of promise for the Colts this year.
  6. Jack Kiser Commits to Notre Dame

    Saw this young man play in back to back state title games. You could see a big difference between his junior and senior year. Although I am not an Irish fan, I wish him great success in his career.

    My guess was Dyer. He is more like Meurer and Cox as far as the running game goes. I don't see the MIners changing their offense any time soon so I would imagine he is best suited to start. Then again, he would be killer from a wingback spot again. I had a chance meeting with Coach Oliver at the 1A state final game back in November and asked him if Dyer would be the QB next season. Of course he replied that the staff would look at who they have and make the decision later. I didn't press him on anything. I think there are a couple of scenarios that could happen, but the Miners will probably stay in the Wing T offense and for the past few years, the best running back on the team has been the QB. On a side note: this will be the fourth consecutive year the Miners have played a defending state champion on their schedule. The previous three were: North Vermillion, Monrovia, and last year, Ritter. Looking forward to an exciting year in Linton.

    Any rumors coming out of Linton yet like who's going to be the QB this year? I have a guess who it might be. It was tough to replace Meurer last year but Cox did a really good job. Now that Cox is graduating, I'm wondering who steps up and keeps the winning tradition going for the Miners. Southridge will have to replace their QB also, but have a stud running back returning. Southridge, Linton, and Mater Dei all being in a top ten says a lot about that sectional. I said last year that the state champ could come out of that sectional and Southridge won it all. Could see the state champ out of that sectional again. Should be a great season this year in 2A.
  9. North Davies...

    It will take time, but I hope he has success with the Cougars. They've been down the past few years. At this point, the program could use a shot of "new energy".
  10. 2A Sectional 47

    Well that was quick. Linton got behind and had to play catch up and couldn't quite get there. South Knox was a team on a mission and now that they thrashed Eastern Greene, they are sectional champs. Best of luck in the regional!
  11. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    Well the coaching staff is set for the Colts now. I guess the next step will be Free Agency. Ballard still says he is building this team through the draft so I don't expect too much excitement from any signings, but you never know. I saw that Ansah (Detroit) and Lawrence (Dallas) got franchise tagged so they aren't on the market. So in that regard, I think it's looking more and more like the Colts will draft Chubb with their third pick. They NEED an edge rusher. I know they drafted Basham last year, but he didn't 'do well in the 3-4 defense. Eberflus is changing the defense to a 4-3 so maybe Basham will have a better year. And who knows? Maybe Chubb and Basham will turn into the next Freeney/Mathais duo. And no I haven't forgotten about Sheard. He'll be in the mix too for edge rusher. I've also heard Nelson's name being dropped as the third pick (offensive lineman from Notre Dame). From what I'm hearing, this year's Colts team won't be close to what it was last year. Still don't have a warm fuzzy feeing about Luck coming back. I think Brissett is a good backup. Hopefully he won't have to start many (or any) games this year. Also think Quincy Wilson will have a good year at CB now that Pagano is gone. Getting Hooker healthy and back will be a big plus for the secondary. Still going to be thin at CB though.
  12. 2A Sectional 47

    That depends on what your definition of "unknown" is. Weren't they suspended just before the Linton game? If so, you can look at their record up to that point and see how they were. I'd say even with those players, the point differential is close to being correct. Whether people like it or not, this sectional is Linton's to lose. They will have to play REALLY poorly to lose it. Weird things have happened before I guess. It's a shame they drew South Knox in the first game. IMO they are the best 2 teams in that sectional. I also believe one of the best wins that the Miners had this year was at Vincennes Lincoln on the second night of a back to back. That game was expected to be close and Linton won by what? 16, 17? The thing that really gets me about a Coach Hart coached team is they get a bit of a lead and normally will never lose it. Reminds me of Dean Smith back in the day at North Carolina. They got a few point lead and then went to a four corner stall. Of course, that was before the shot clock. It was exasperating to watch!
  13. 2A Sectional 47

    According to the current Sagarin ratings, Linton is an 11 point favorite over South Knox, 20 point favorites over Mitchell, 23 point favorites over Eastern Greene, 24 point favorites over North Daviess, and 43 point favorites over North Knox. Having played (and beaten) all of these teams except Mitchell during the season, the closest game was 15 points (South Knox). Linton finishes their season this Friday at home against Sullivan. This should be a good test right before the tournament. The Golden Arrows are a solid ball club. On a side note: After last night's win over West Vigo (76 - 41), Coach Hart needs 2 more wins to reach 300 in his career.

    I'm curious to see what happens with Foles You know he isn't staying in Philly now. Wenz is "the man" there and should be back healthy. Foles just won a Super Bowl so I would expect he'll get paid by some team needing a QB. Maybe Arizona?
  15. 2018 Indianapolis Colts

    LOL Sad, but pretty close to the truth! Ballard did say it's a 3 - 5 year process. After only 4 wins, it' a bit difficult to wrap your mind around that. However, the Colts did have quite a few injuries last year. To qualify why I mentioned Ansah's name: he had 41/2 sacks in 10 games before the injury. There IS promise there. Of course I'd want to see what he can do in a workout, post surgery before I'd talk with him.
