  1. IU-Purdue Recruiting Deadlock

    I can't recall all of the specifics, but it seems like the arrival of Mitch Daniel's jump started the upgrades. He truly understood the importance of a revenue generating athletic department.
  2. IU-Purdue Recruiting Deadlock

    And he should counter sue Morgan Burke for being the worst AD in the history of Big Ten athletics. One thing I will say about Brohm is he seems to really embraced Purdue. It's rumored that his family loves West Lafayette, whiich is a great community and school system. He's traveled with the basketball team on recent road trips. He did recently say in an article that he loves the idea of excelling in a place that isn't used to the annual success you see at Ohio State, Michigan, etc. Honestly, with his offenisve mind, I'm thinking Purdue loses him to the NFL before another college program.
  3. Kokomo Open

    Kokomo and Mishawaka now open. Colby and Curtis leave some mighty big shoes to fill.
  4. Lawrence Central Filled

    Why did he resign from Moeller after the 2017 season? I completely understand why this looks like a phenomenal hire on paper, but I would have preferred to have seen an Indiana coach get the opportunity. After losing West and then Peebles, LC needs to find their guy who will stay committed to the Bears. Admittedly, I'm naturally a sketptic, but I can foresee this guy going back to his native Cincinnati as soon as another prime job is available.
  5. Valparaiso Head Coach

    Interesting comment from Hutton's column regarding one of the finalists being a Statle Title winning coach. Could he be referring to St. Germain or Mason?
  6. Valparaiso Head Coach

    I hope Marshall is prepared to hand out participation trophies after each game and find a suitable safe space to cope with losses.
  7. Evans Brothers Leave Central

    Got ya. I agree with you. A good back still needs a good OL. I'm assuming someone thought I was referring to Evans when I received the downvote. Never seen the kid play. Just generally agreeing with greyhound that an OL plays a huge part in how good a RB is at the HS level.
  8. Evans Brothers Leave Central

    Agreed! I've seen some very good backs struggle as they were consistantly running into brick walls and some very good O-Lines make average backs look phenomenal.
  9. Columbus north

    I don't think your scorned friend holds sway over Columbus North's choice of coach. This thread needs to be deleted and dumped from everyone's collective memory.
  10. Alabama vs. Georgia - Who Ya' Got?

    That's an unbelievable stat. You almost have to feel sorry for LSU fans. No reaoson he couldn't have done the same in Baton Rouge had he never left for Miami. Here's a random tidbit: anyone notice former Valpo HS and Penn State kicker Sam Ficken booting FG's for the Rams on Saturday night? They said during the game he had just passed his Series 7 when the Rams called a few weeks ago and asked if he would tryout with a dozen other kickers. Nice little way to supplement your income as a broker.
  11. Bears Fire Fox - Harbaugh Up next?

    Unfortunately, I missed Chiefs game. I heard the play calling in the 2nd half was atrocius. I'm hoping Reid did take over playcalling in this one.
  12. Bears Fire Fox - Harbaugh Up next?

    I'm not sure I'm comfortable with giving Trubiski a HC with no NFL experience. I would prefer Nagy from Kansas City or the QB coach from Philly. Nagy would be my #1. He was supposedly really high on Trubiski last year, KC has been undefeated since he started calling plays, and Andy Reid''s coaching tree has been fairly sucessful. Nagy is supposedly a highly regarded offensive mind by those familiar with the Andy Reid lineage. I wouldn't be surprised if Pace had a complete wildcard in his pocket that nobody is mentioning. Afterall, he kept his intention to move up and take Trubiski a secret from nearly everyone at Halas Hall.
  13. Alabama vs. Georgia - Who Ya' Got?

    Giants, not even close. Mara Family >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> McCaskey Family. And then add in the Bears President, Ted Phillips, knows absolutely nothing about football, hard pass.
  14. Alabama vs. Georgia - Who Ya' Got?

    *Mythical National Championship Heart says Georgia. Mind says Bama. It's not good for a Pro Style offense to face this Alabama defense that's now healthy at LB. I hope Saban rides out into the NFL. The Albama story line is getting a little tiresome for me. I imagine this game will have awful ratings.
  15. I could also not win the Powerball this weekend. Purdue's first 5 games are as follows: Northwestern (home) Eastern Michigan (home) Missouri (home) Boston College (home) Nebraska (away) I feel worst case scenario is 3-2.
