  1. Hunter Johnson to transfer

    That's true. I listen to ESPN Chicago and a little of 670 The Score all day while I work. Northwestern is doing a lot of marketing around their home schedule. Of course, the downside is that with Chicago being a major hub for ND Subway Alums and Big Ten Alums, they should expect to see a lot of Michigan, Nebraska, Wisconsin, and ND fans in Ryan Stadium. Not sure Illini fans care at this point.
  2. Hunter Johnson to transfer

    Plus, Bryant still has 1 year of eligibility. Way too early to say Johnson will not live up to the expectations of recruiting analysts and fans. Northwestern is a great choice. Solid academics, great location in Evanston/Chicago, great coach in Fitz, and an unbelievable newly built athletic complex on the shore of Lake Michigan.
  3. I'm guessing Warren may reconsider scheduling a conference foe in Week 1 in the future.
  4. 262 views and no replies. Should that lead us to believe Warren still doesn’t have anyone lined up?
  5. Kevin Wright comments from IMG

    Am I the only one who thinks IMG would pummel whomever our 6A State Champion is on a yearly basis? No thanks. They're a multi state All Star team. The likes of Ben Davis, Cathedral, and Warren Central struggle to beat Cincinnati teams, let's not throw them to the wolves in Florida, Texas, etc. My only interest is to routinely see our state's best play the best from Louisville, Ohio, Chicagoland, and Michigan.
  6. IU-Purdue Recruiting Deadlock

    A Rivals 4 Star Safety out of Detroit verballed to Purdue. Brohm is rolling!
  7. Cathedral and Penn

    Are you referring to size of school? The housing values in the villages that feed into New Trier make Carmel, Zionsville, Valpo, Munster, etc. look like paupers. You're more likely to see a hockey rink in someone's back yard in the New Trier area than a football player that resembles the type BD and WC get. I know Phillips is pretty good, but I doubt they would have the depth to hang in 6A in Indiana, let alone the higher Illinois classes. Reminds me of the Saginaw, MI, team that Penn clobbered when they had Lamar Woodley and a few other D1 recruits. They tried playing literally everyone both ways against Penn and were gassed by the 3rd quarter.
  8. Cathedral and Penn

    DuPage Valley is pretty tough. One of their bottom feeders came down to Fishers a few years ago and smacked HSE around. Personally, I think top tier MIC teams could fair well in any Midwestern conference. A lot of talent, good coaching, and very large enrollments. From a pure raw athletic standpoint, only Bolingbrook and H-F in the Chicago area can compare to Warren or BD. Though I think both of those Illinois schools are smaller in enrollment. The Naperville schools, Glenbard West, New Trier, Hinsdale Central, Maine South, Lincoln Way East, etc., are more similar to a Carmel. It’s been quite some time, but Maine South came down to Indy and got the everlasting crap beat out of them by Warren. I think that was during the Wright dynasty. Some of the Chicago Catholic league teams like Loyola, St Rita, and Mt. Carmel are bigger (in enrollment) versions than Cathedral.
  9. Cathedral and Penn

    Easily? I don’t think so. Definitely on par with BD and WC in terms of talent, but they haven’t cashed in on an 8A Title. The year they lost to Loyola in semi’s has prob been Buzeas best team there.
  10. Hunter Johnson leaving Clemson

    Potentially. It's definitely a good problem for a program to have. You just never know though; I remember when people thought Grossman was wasting his time at Florida because they were getting Brock Berlin and he was one supposedly one of the best QB's the South ever produced. Maybe Johnson pulls a "Gunner" and never performs up to the hype.
  11. Seems like, per capita at least, Ft Wayne produces more NFL talent than Indy. Just my perception, don’t have time to do the research.
  12. Lawrence Central Filled

    Honest question, does that matter? I thought kids in Lawrence Township can attend LC or LN. Maybe I'm wrong. It seems like at the end of they day LC will get talent if they're winning as it's no secret kids will play for schools outside of their Township. Personally, I work with someone who lives in Washington Township and has made it clear her 6'3 twelve year old phenom will be using Grandpa's address to play for Warren.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Kokomo Open

    Kokomo and Mishawaka now open. Colby and Curtis leave some mighty big shoes to fill.
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
