  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  4. 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.
  5. 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

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.

  9. 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. They should be more well matched this week against Indy Arlington. Game Capsules: Indianapolis Howe (0-3) at Guerin Catholic (3-0) GAME TIME: 7 pm ET, Guerin Catholic.

  10. 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.
  11. All three games this week could go either way, but I'm going to say: Roncalli, Brebeuf, Guerin
  12. Definitely a good win for Guerin and the kids were super excited. This should really help build confidence. Thomas Kaser is a pretty interesting running back. Where Carter McGinnis was a big beast who could run over the top of you, Kaser is low to the ground and slippery. It seemed like he made some good yards after contact in both of the two first games. I'm feeling a little better about this team... especially if they can develop a consistent passing attack that keeps teams from loading up on Kaser. I still think it could be a while before we know how good the Golden Eagles really are. Their next three games are: Heritage Christian Howe Broad Ripple Howe and HC are not slouch teams, but they don't represent the level of competition that GC will see at the end of the season and in the post-season. Like most years lately, Guerin runs the gauntlet on the back end of the schedule with Chatard, Brebeuf and Roncalli the opponent for three of the last four weeks. Talked to some LCC fans and alums before and during the game. My biggest concern for this team would be that community disappointment doesn't ruin what could be a good season for the Knights. With no O'Shea and no more Anthrop boys on the horizon, LCC may have to be content to grind away with more modest success for a while.
  13. Results from Week 2 - Friday, Aug 25: No huge surprises in the Week Two scores... Lawrence Central 24 Chatard 16 Guerin Catholic 28 Lafayette Central Catholic 14 Roncalli 37 Franklin Central 21 Brebeuf Jesuit 37 Indianapolis Tech 0 Heritage Christian 63 Noblesville HomeSchool 16 Thoughts for Week 3: As Lysander notes above, there is a very good chance that the CCC champion will be determined on Friday night in the Roncalli / Chatard game. Both teams are led by new coaches. Does the reconfigured Chatard offense (now with forward passes!) have enough horsepower to help them unseat the defending CCC champion? Fun fact: According to Harrell, this series is tied at 20-20. Brebeuf looks to keep their season on track as they visit a very solid Ritter squad that has moved up into 3A for the 2017 & 2018 seasons. This matchup gives Ritter an early sense of how they may fare in Sectional 29 where they could face Chatard. Who will prevail? After bringing home the Bishop's Canon for only the 2nd time in school history, Guerin now travels to Heritage Christian. At 2-0 is Guerin a legitimate contender in the CCC?

  14. Results pretty much as expected: FRIDAY, AUG. 25 Brebeuf Jesuit 37 Indianapolis Tech 0 Guerin Catholic 28 Lafayette Central Catholic 14 Heritage Christian 63 Noblesville HomeSchool 16 Indianapolis Roncalli 37 Franklin Central 21 Lawrence Central 24 Indianapolis Chatard 16 And then this happened... holy smokes.... North Central (Indianapolis) 37 Hamilton Southeastern 14 My thoughts are: Guerin and LCC both looked sloppy at times and solid at times... the edge came from Guerin's defense, which came up with stops at key times. QB play and good running by Thomas Kaser will keep them in some games this year. LCC committed uncharacteristic penalties and was less fundamentally sound than what I have seen in prior years. All in all, Guerin looks like a "pretty good" 3A team and LCC looks like a "pretty good" 1A... we will see in both cases if "pretty good" is good enough to get wins in the Circle City Conference and Hoosier Conference (respectively). Kevin O'Shea for president?

    Meanwhile, Coach O'Shea leads North Central to a 37-14 win over Hamilton Southeastern. Wow.
