  1. A Question for Bobref

    That rule change was made a few years ago (Fall 2016 I think?). To answer your question it definitely makes sense inside the 10 if a sure TD can be prevented. I thought for sure you would definitely see defenses use it any time there was a goal - to - go situation but it really hasn’t happened. I would also say HS offenses are generally more run first inside the 10 anyway so it really isn’t as common as you would think.
  2. This is the DAY!!!!

    Good luck and good health to all teams tonight! I would much rather see some football talk and encouragement on this board rather than those who gleefully promote the destruction of the sport. If this thread stays above theirs I would be happy.
  3. Wood Memorial

    Why aren’t there 8 man or 6 man teams? My guess is that there is a round ball that only requires 5 players that draws too much attention in Indiana. And it can be played year round as well.
  4. Wood Memorial

    So the players (or at least most of them) on the Jasonville Community team attend Shakamak HS? Or is it a separate charter-type school? Either way, that's great. I'm all for more HS students getting the ability to play football.
  5. I don’t know why I’m shocked, but your example is the complete opposite of the point you are trying to make. You are speaking out of both sides of your mouth. Wood Memorial had a FT employed coach in the building, who even was a second generation educator, and an egregious hazing incident happened under his watch. In fact, he was a young, energetic coach - some might even call him a “bro-coach”. So are you saying that arrangement is better than their current lay coach. Which one is bad for the game?
  6. The SIAC Conference 2018

    Yes. It’s not Lent, so it’s ok.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. School Fight Songs

    @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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
