  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. I agree. I think Fort Wayne and Indy do a pretty good job of developing talent. The Region, population of around 500,000, is a complete failure. Mishiana and Evansville are "meh." I've traveled alot, especially in Southern states, and IMO, the rural areas are what set the Southern states apart. Large states like Ohio, Texas, California, Pennsylvania, etc. are going to produce a lot of D1 talent as they have mutliple major metro areas. Places like South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia will have athletic freaks that live in rural areas. You're not just limited to recruiting Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh, NOVA, Hampton Roads, etc. In Indiana, our rural areas typically only produce a lineman once in a while.
  9. Yeah, and this is just the early signing period. I'm to busy to research who did and didn't sign, but I'd be willing to bet IU and Purdue get more in February.
  10. Free Big Ten education, playing time, ability to develop into an NFL player, etc. Not everyone can play for Ohio State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Alabama, Georgia, etc. Purdue and IU have certain areas of study that rank among the best in the country. Some guys, who see the NFL as a pipe dream, may find that appealing.
  11. Bears 2016 and NOW 2017

    So, how about that Jimmy G? Can't believe the Bears and many other NFL GM's coveted college QB's instead of dangling a 1st round pick in the face of NE for him. And Lynch didn't even have to give up a first rounder.
  12. Markese Stepp

    So, one prestigious academic private school is willing to take him but another won't? Are Notre Dame's admission requirements for football players THAT high or was ND turned off by his lingering hamstring issues? I alwasy thought Isaac was better suited to play LB. At Joliet Catholic you could tell he was dominating based on his size.
  13. IMO, it's amazing that Hobart completely fell off the radar after Howell retired. In '95, they blew a huge hafltime lead in Semi-State to eventual State Champ Fort Wayne Wayne. They lost to Cathedral in the State Championship in '96. In '97 they had 1 loss to eventual State Champ Griffith in Regionals. In '98, Howell's last year, they went 4-6. Since then, they have 1 Sectional Championship. What did Howell do so well and what is keeping Hobart from having the same success as Lowell?
  14. 2017 Boilermaker Football

    Yep. I was a Junior that year. One of the guys in our group was was from the Bay Area. To this day I hear stories of them flying out to see his family in San Fran and driving an RV down the coast to eventually setting up next to the Rose Bowl.
  15. And Noblesville. I would think a team struggling in the HCC would want to some gimme's on the OOC schedule to teach the kids how to win. I hope they don't have Carmel in week 2 again.
