  1. The SIAC Conference 2018

    Yes. It’s not Lent, so it’s ok.
  2. Yes and no. North kicked a FG with about 5 min to go. South had a FG as time expired that was blocked. Anybody know what the kicking rules were? Most all-star games allow no or very little rush (max 4-5) on kicking downs. North brought the house.
  3. The SIAC Conference 2018

    So maybe tell T20 that Henderson County isn’t the only high school just across the river that needs to close practice. Glass houses and all that. I think that dead horse of a joke has run its course and am done with it.
  4. The SIAC Conference 2018

    I tell you what. The Singer kid for GS is gonna be a beast this year. You would think with that kind of talent he could have played for the Titans as a sophomore. I wonder why he didn’t?

    @Bcaster Bosse - Illinois Loyalty Central - Minnesota I’m almost positive someone in the SIAC uses Ohio St, so by process of elimination that would leave North. But i’m not sure on that.
  6. Curious what his title/responsibility will be. Pike County paper reported he was leaving to be ‘Co-defensive coordinator’ and track coach. I’m not sure what a co-coordinator does.
  7. I agree. The 2 platoon discussion seems like a pot/kettle comparison. To me it seems both teams do pretty much the same thing. I didn’t see where two platoons hurt GS last year, but that was just from seeing one game. And Memorial only played one player both ways - Combs- and we pretty much can agree he needed to be on the field. Griffin Scheller was used the same way a few years ago. Both teams used defensive guys at FB and extra blockers during short yardage and goal line situations. The biggest issue wasn’t the system; it was the GS schedule - and we have had that discussion before.
  8. Here’s a crazy stat for you regarding Evansville teams. Mike Goebel (21 years at Mater Dei) Add up all the other 6 coaches tenure at their current schools and you get: Hurley (10), Hape (5), Schnur (3), Oxley (1) plus Burgess and Paridaen being brand new equals 19. There’s obviously experience at other schools and as an assistant as well, but just odd how the city coaching landscape has changed over the last few years.
  9. I remember the good ol' days... when a thread could actually stay on topic. And why go to the trouble of writing a coherent, persuasive post when a meme can do all your talking for you?
  10. Muda has issues with that study, because the subjects were HS football players in 1957. I would surmise the original study of this post, from Annals of Neurology, would have similar sample problems. I cannot find the full article as it has been accepted for publication, but not yet published in other than abstract form. The full article should be available in about a month or two when published. It might be available sooner, but that would require me talking to the school librarian, and frankly, the old bird scares me. I did spend some time Saturday reading similar articles, especially about the age 12 issue. One study I found concluded that age 12 was a cut-off point for the likelihood and severity of CTE, but its subjects were brains donated in Florida between 1997-2007. These were 2,000+ donated brains of individuals who were a median age of 65 at death. So if they were on average 65 at death, and that was in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when would they have been playing HS football? Point being, if you will give credit to studies who examined players who showed CTE for exposure prior to age 12, you cannot then DISCREDIT the Wisconsin study above who examined players from 1957 on that issue alone. Both studies have the same questions of generalizability.
  11. Actually all 246 subjects are dead, so are you saying you don’t care about the other 35? How inhumane and uncaring of you. (I can play the re-direct with a strawman argument game too.) Tragedies occur, and each and every one is sad. Here is southern Indiana we had a high school student killed when her snow sled went down the hill and out into the road. Categorizing her death as an ‘acceptable loss’ for playing in the snow would be ridiculous. The notion that football coaches, parents, and fans who love the sport are knuckle-dragging Neanderthals is a lazy stereotype. That unfortunately doesn’t sell newspapers, just like studies citing concussion statistics for soccer and playground accidents. Funny - I criticized the Neanderthal stereotype before I even read your last post. I guess it’s not an original argument.
  12. I found the abstract of the scientific study. I hope to read the full study tomorrow if I can access it. The n = 246 and 211/246 had CTE. However it still has a self-selection bias that all these studies have. An analogy: I go to a Lexus car lot, interview all the people there to buy a car. I then publish a study - 211/246 respondents said price did not matter when buying a car. The popular press picks up on my findings and run the headline, “Americans shouldn’t care about price when car-shopping” and they cite my study as proof. Is that a valid conclusion? I hope to read the full study and analyze it. The point remains - these are 246 brains of individuals who donated their brains to science out of the hundreds of thousands who played football over that time frame.
  13. Agree 100%. I think the evidence speaks for itself that any coach who encourages a player to concentrate on one sport has only his/her best interest in mind and not the player's.
  14. Noblesville (and only Floyd Central from your list) is a community whose tax dollars were used to help support the financing and construction of the stadium. Shouldn’t those taxpayers reap the benefit of a publicly funded stadium before the other teams you listed? Whether it’s uninspiring or not - I have no problem with that taking priority.
  15. So you don’t answer Tango or anyone else’s question - just imply people smarter than you don’t have a problem with it and google it yourself. I’ve got no problem with someone being compensated for his time out of season. I think it would be great to teach all elementary school kids proper form and speed drills. Let’s say I’m a lawyer, accountant, or consultant. I have a pretty good business working out of my house. Can I start meeting my clients at the local school library so I can save on lights, utilities, and print documents for free? That is all that is being asked. Where does the money go? Is the cost of inputs free?
