  1. Conference Indiana 2018

    "Strongly confident"... I think I maybe understand. You certainly run into some kids in Hamilton county that are over-coached. i.e. been in youth leagues or on travel teams since they were 5, think they are smarter than coaches and/or officials, have strength coaches, nutrition coaches, etc. I think this is a big part of their "confidence". Part of what I love about Tom Dilley as the Head Football Coach at Guerin is that he has no tolerance for kids who think they are entitled, smarter than their coaches, or bigger than their team. A side note... One of my concerns about youth sports in the north Indy 'burbs is that coaches are starting to expect that kids get their development and training somewhere else versus developing athletes in the school programs. i.e. If you want to be a soccer goalie on our team, here's the name of a good goalie coach who can give you 1:1 lessons (at your expense). If you want to play baseball, here's a hitting coach you should work with. If you want to play Lacrosse, here's a training facility and a travel team you should join in the off-season. I think we create monsters sometimes with all of the money and extra coaching that we put into Hamilton county athletes. I'm an old fart, but I miss the days in my (rural) high school where athletes switched sports with the seasons and high school coaches developed talent. Part of what I love about football as a sport is that it's one of the few sports where coaches still do a lot of development. The skill advancement from freshman to senior year is huge and the bulk of an athlete's development is done inside the high school program. This may be controversial... but I don't think high school soccer, baseball or basketball can make the same claim. Especially in the 'burbs. In those sports, the best athletes take time out from their (often better) travel teams to play on their high school team. And sometimes you catch an an attitude from that type of kid that's along the lines of "my high school team is lucky to have me... I'm taking time away from AAU / club team right now". I'm going to predict right now that CN and Guerin are not going to become rivals any time soon. ;) It can be a cool opportunity to play bigger, better schools though. There were a few years there where Guerin had a bigger, better Martinsville program on the schedule and I think it's good for the development of a program that's trying to build.
  2. Best Chances for 2018 Title

    Guerin? Not sure about that... The Golden Eagles were undersized and young on both sides of the line last year and had a rough season in 2017. The situation might be improved this year, but probably not entirely solved. The defensive secondary was also rough last year, and that could be significantly better this year. There are some pretty interesting Junior and Senior role players this year for Guerin. I don't think Guerin will be able to pound the ball on offense the way they did in 2016, but they may have a decent passing game. With the more difficult schedule this year, I'm hoping for 6 regular season wins out of Guerin and a good showing in the post-season. I think it's pretty early to imagine Guerin beating Brebeuf in Sectional 26, much less whoever emerges from sectional 25 (West Lafayette?)
  3. Conference Indiana 2018

    I'm not sure if "Carmel Attitude" is a good or bad thing? In any case, you aren't too for off. Carmel Middle (not OLMC or another area K-8 catholic school) is the #1 feeder school for Guerin. My early read is that Guerin will be better this year than last, but the matchup against Columbus North in week 5 is a rough one. Hopefully that game will toughen up the kids for the post-season and not break anybody in the process.
  4. Indy Kicking Camps

    Why are we posting stuff about kickers in a forum about football?
  5. Sorry about that. Life has been getting in the way of fun things (including high school gridiron) for the last few weeks. The most interesting game to me this week is Brebeuf @ Guerin. Brebeuf is the obvious choice and should absolutely win this game, but crazier things have happened in these matchups. I think the Guerin loss to Brebeuf earlier this season was not as bad as the score differential would indicate. I also thought Guerin played a respectable game against Roncalli to finish the season. (Knowing full well that we were not seeing the full Roncalli squad). I'll give Brebeuf a 14 point margin... but would not be shocked if Guerin hung in the game for a while. Hoping for a big, rowdy Guerin crowd. Friendly tip: come early... I'm betting that there will be few (or no) parking spots 30 minutes before game time. Not sure what make of the Milan - Heritage Christian game. Don't know much about the Milan team other than the stat line, which favors Milan. Chatard will undoubtedly provide a clinical beatdown for Northwestern. Can't wait for the Roncalli / Cathedral matchup next week and cannot even predict what that one will look like. It's hard to go against Cathedral in a 4A sectional matchup, but I really do like Roncalli this year. Should be a great game.
  6. Harrell Football is absolutely the best. It occurred to me that the Guerin - Brebeuf matchup this weekend could be a preview of Sectional 26. I was going to crunch the numbers to see where the different teams in that sectional currently stand... but helpfully Harrell is already doing that. Here's the current standings: SECTIONAL 26 SECT RANK STATE RANK TEAM OVERALL RATING SCHEDULE STRENGTH RANK RECENT RATING RANK PREDICTOR RATING RANK 1 48 Brebeuf Jesuit 73.10 75.91 20 70.73 55 71.65 52 2 100 Guerin Catholic 59.67 42.55 171 62.27 91 62.01 92 3 164 Southmont 46.38 37.79 213 46.75 159 46.14 162 4 189 Northwestern 39.92 40.57 195 41.12 183 41.44 182 5 203 Hamilton Heights 37.76 56.53 83 38.51 198 38.39 198 6 209 North Montgomery 35.72 41.90 177 34.90 211 35.17 211 7 254 Blackford 22.41 30.11 260 23.35 251 21.89 259 8 260 Crawfordsville 21.44 49.24 130 19.91 264 20.63 262 Also note: Brebeuf and Guerin moved into the North this year... Chatard is with Ritter in the South - Sectional 29. Still unclear if Guerin has the raw talent to compete with CCC teams this year, but I predict both teams will be especially focused for this game. Some of the backdrop going into the game is: Brebeuf may view Guerin as just another Indy-area Catholic school rival, but the Guerin kids typically view the matchup as big rivalry... maybe the biggest for Guerin. A tough, emotional matchup last year. Brebeuf had a huge offensive series late in the game to tie. Guerin hit an improbable 54-yard field goal to win in the final seconds. A win for Brebeuf pulls them up to 3-3 on the season. The winner of this game becomes the favorite for Sectional 29. The loser of this game is likely the loser of the conference this year. I think both sets of kids fight extra hard in this one.
  7. RESULTS FRIDAY, SEP. 22 Indianapolis Chatard 35 Guerin Catholic 7 Indianapolis Roncalli 45 Brebeuf Jesuit 18 Heritage Christian 55 Covenant Christian 0 Thoughts: Guerin not at all competitive with Chatard. It's not going to get any easier with Brebeuf and Rocalli still remaining on the schedule. Solid win by Roncalli guarantees a share of the CCC title. Guerin will have to beat Brebeuf and Roncalli to share the title... that's "highly unlikely". Guerin travels to 86th street on Saturday. Fun fact: Brebeuf has only lost to Guerin at home 1 time. (2011... Guerin's semi-state run) The biggest question about Roncalli seems to be how they might match up against Cathedral in the 4A post-season. CalPreps (which evaluates out-of-state games, unlike Sagarin) currently ranks Roncalli as the fifth best overall team in the state... only behind 6A powerhouses Ben Davis, Lawrence Central, Warren Central and Center Grove.

  8. The Sagarin ratings don't have much info about out-of-state teams, so definitely a challenge for that system to evaluate Cathedral effectively. The Calpreps ratings (which are used by MaxPreps web site) are probably more accurate for answering the question "where does Cathedral fit?" Calpreps has scores and ratings for every team in the country and can probably do a better job of evaluating teams like Cathedral that play lots of out-of-state opponents. Here's where Calpreps ranks the same three teams that you highlighted. This is certainly up for argument and the final verdict will be provided when these teams get to the post season... but the list below feels pretty accurate to me. 1 Davis [Ben] 2 Avon (IN) 3 Warren Central 4 Center Grove (Greenwood, IN) 5 Lawrence Central 6 Snider [R. Nelson] 7 Roncalli (Indianapolis, IN) 8 Carmel (IN) 9 Valparaiso (IN) 10 North Central 11 Cathedral (Indianapolis, IN) 12 Pike (Indianapolis, IN) 13 Homestead (Fort Wayne, IN) 14 Penn (Mishawaka, IN) 15 Lawrence North (Indianapolis, IN) 16 Bishop Chatard (Indianapolis, IN) 17 Franklin Central (Indianapolis, IN) 18 Reitz [F. J.] (Evansville, IN) 19 Brownsburg (IN) 20 Westfield (IN) So here's where I'm going to open a can of worms.. Roncalli looks really, really good this year. I like their chances if and when they play Cathedral in the post-season. The CalPrep ratings seem to agree. Other thoughts: North Central #10 on this list. How about that! O'Shea for President! My Guerin Catholic Golden Eagles play #16 Chatard this weekend and #7 Roncalli in week 9. Ugggg.
  9. There are a lot great backs out there, but #22 Thomas Kaser at Guerin has been a lot of fun to watch this year. We expected a rough season this year, but he has provided quite a few bright spots. Averaging 142 yards per game. He also kicks KO/FG/PAT and handles kick/punt returns!!! Slippery, low to the ground, good field vision. http://www.hudl.com/v/27jRJB

  11. RESULTS FRIDAY, SEP. 15 Brebeuf Jesuit 17 Culver Academy 14 Guerin Catholic 56 Indianapolis Broad Ripple 14 Indianapolis Chatard 42 St. Francis DeSales (Ohio) 7 Indianapolis Roncalli 38 Indianapolis Scecina 7 Lapel 28 Heritage Christian 20 Thoughts: As others have noted, the resounding win by Chatard is impressive. Prior to the Chatard loss, SFDS-OH was assumed to be one of the better teams in Ohio. Chatard may be firing on all cylinders. They have also may have discovered an innovation that some refer to as the "forward pass". Roncalli continues an impressive ride toward a CCC crown and a potential post-season matchup against another Catholic school that shall not be named. Guerin freshman get quality minutes against an underpowered Broad Ripple squad. Brebeuf notches their second win of the season against another preppy school. I have nothing creative to say about the Heritage Christian game. :) Other Thoughts: I've never been good at math, but it seems like Roncalli could lock the CCC football title this weekend, no? undefeated Guerin faces their first significant competition of the year as Chatard travels to The Nest. This one might get ugly. Brebeuf travels to Undefeated Roncalli. Ditto. Brebeuf Jesuit (2-3) at Indianapolis Roncalli (5-0) GAME TIME: 7 pm ET, Roncalli Field.

At 4-0 against a mixture of opponents, Guerin still has some things to prove. Chatard and Brebeuf take another loss to tough opponents. Heritage may not be ready for CCC-level football competition.

  13. Week 4 Schedule in the CCC: Thoughts: Roncalli establishes a big lead in the CCC championship race and continue to be impressive. Guerin continues to roll, but toughest competition will come at the end of the season. Howe has been a solid team in prior years, but their program hasn't recovered from loss of Coach Chambers for the the 2016 season. Tough loss for Brebeuf against Ritter. Things won't get easier this week against Zionsville. " " " Chatard " Roncalli. " " " " " " " Cathedral. (See what what I did there?) Heritage Christian looks to rebound from Guerin loss.

  14. Results from Week 3 - Friday, Sept 1: Guerin Catholic 27 Heritage Christian 0 - Heritage actually kept it close early on, but unable to stop the running attack later in the game. Indianapolis Ritter 21 Brebeuf Jesuit 14 - This game probably says more about Ritter than it does about Brebeuf. Indianapolis Roncalli 21 Indianapolis Chatard 7 - Roncalli now the clear favorite to repeat for CCC championship.
  15. All three games this week could go either way, but I'm going to say: Roncalli, Brebeuf, Guerin
