  1. Lawrence Central Filled

    Well he was coaching a pseudo-college program at Moeller. Good hire for LC though.
  2. Marion Local is on another couple of levels from smaller Indiana schools. Woodlan will likely be in for a long night.
  3. And he should sit out next year, like all transfers CLEARLY for athletic reasons, should. Or maybe Warren Central is a better academic institution then Cathedral?
  4. If you were a Big 10 caliber player and had options, why would you go to Indiana or Purdue anyway?

    I think if a player wins the Mr. Football Award at his position, he probably ought to be good enough to be the class representative at said position for the AP All State team.
  6. Markese Stepp

    No it won't be fine. IU's offense was good when Kevin Wilson was coaching there. He's gone and we'll never see them approach what they had. IU is going nowhere but backward. Others in similar situations (Purdue, Nebraska and Maryland) all either have better head coaches or recruit better players. And they'll never approach Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Northwestern and Wisconsin anytime soon. Very soon they'll be much closer to Illinois and Minnesota then they are the legit teams in the conference. Congrats to Stepp going to USC. A former IU assistant (who also left when Wilson was canned) gets a good prospect to tutor.
  7. Mid State

    You might see it. But it ain't gonna happen.
  8. Mid State

    Mooresville isn't going anywhere.
  9. Markese Stepp

    IU's offense has gone downhill (and will continue to go that way) because they lost their 2 best position coaches (OL and RB) and because like him or not, Kevin Wilson knew offense. IU is on the downslide from mediocre. Which isn't good.
  10. Peebles to Cathedral

    Good move. Peebles is a Cathedral guy and knows he can win big there. In 6A, if you aren't at Ben Davis, Warren Central, Carmel or Center Grove you are just wasting your time if you are trying to win a state championship. Its a 4 school class.
  11. Best Chances for 2018 Title

    New Palestine should be better in 2018 then they were this year. And they were a top 6-8 team in 5A this year.
  12. Best Chances for 2018 Title

    6A only really consists of Ben Davis, Warren Central, Carmel and Center Grove so if its anyone outside of those 4 who win the state, it would be a minor miracle. Those others "chasing" can chase all they want but they are better off taking a nap and saving their energy.
  13. Mercy Rule

    Again, that is on the coach to make those decisions. If he doesn't want his QB running the ball, he can call plays to make sure he doesn't run in a blowout. He should have been frustrated with himself for allowing his QB to get hit like that in that situation. So he likely earned his trip to the IHSAA offices. Still could happen with a running clock mercy rule situation too. I just don't see what the reasoning is for this "rule" to begin with. Besides giving the players fewer plays, the paying customers less for their money, speeding games up (to save electricity??), and pretending 42-0 "feels" better then 56-0 does. Or that JV players, who get the crap beat out of them at practice for 3 months, don't deserve to play in varsity games. And with many programs (even in 4A-6A schools) struggling with numbers to begin with in this day-and-age, that's not good to keep those kids interested.
  14. Mercy Rule

    What if he was being serious? Again he's the head football coach of his team. He should be able to run it as he sees fit. Its not about whether the officials think the game should speed up because the score on the scoreboard is "out of hand." They are officials that have no idea about what's best for a particular team anyway. What's the IHSAA sportsmanship mantra? Let the officials officiate. Let the players play. Let the coaches coach. They should follow their own commercial soundbites.
  15. Mercy Rule

    As is letting 60 year old former school administrators who don't know a football from a tennis ball, legislating what is "right" and "proper" and what isn't. I still would like to know what is so ingenius about a "mercy rule"? And what it actually "solves"? Again, you get 10 guaranteed football games a year if you are a varsity football player. Ten. For kids at most schools, you get 2 or 3 years in your life maximum to play varsity football. Is it asking too much to play 48 minutes of football in those 10 games? Coaches are already criminally underpaid as is for the amount of hours they put in YEAR-ROUND. You want to take more gametime away from these guys? If the football coaches and AD's at schools aren't equipped to handle blowout situations, on the good end or bad end, then they probably aren't equipped to be coaches or AD's to begin with.
