  1. While the percentage of Americans playing football is trending down, the number of participants is still up from your glory days in high school. People have ever increasing options, this is the biggest reason for the dip in market share, but make don’t doubt that football is still an option and will be for the foreseeable future. Now if you want to talk about a dying genre, journalism. What a sad state of affairs it has become. Murrow would be turning over in his grave.
  2. It's clear you don't understand how spring football works in "spring football states"
  3. But they have spring football DT, isn't that the judge of a healthy football state :)
  4. Thanks for the info. I will plead ignorance on national wrestling understanding.
  5. There are people in every time and every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future, mistrust the present, and invoke the security of the comfortable past which, in fact, never existed. - Robert Kennedy
  6. If this were true, which it’s not it would apply nationwide and therefor be moot to this conversation. In reality coaching quality is what it’s been for decades. We often look at the past and think of better days and have rosey colored glasses thinking about a better time that never really existed. The truth is coaching is what it’s always been. There are some rockstars, some turds, and a whole lot of medicore coaches that really care about developing young men. It was that way in the 60s, it was that way in the 80s, and it’s that way in the 2010s.
  7. Indiana produces well above it’s fair share of basketball top rated kids. Indiana is in par with NY, CA, and TX. In that regard. If you look at states comparable in size to Indiana....Massachusetts, Maryland, Minnesota...I think Indiana stacks up favorably. I’d take Indiana’s top 11 vs the top 11 in any of those states. Statistically Indiana is average per capita in talent in football. In basketball it fights well above it’s weight.
  8. Your statement was focused on the idea that Indiana doesn’t produce elite athletes, I contradicted that assertion.
  9. Super Bowl 49 had zero players particiapte who were 5 star rated out of HS. And over 40 that were rated 3 stars on down.
  10. Martin is the highest paid Guard in NFL history, and started multiple years at ND. Stop talking out of your butt.
  11. Kevin Wright comments from IMG

    Your 4th line is a flat out lie. The other lines are conjecture.
  12. Again that was not the intent. My motivation and others was to end the potential for a 1.5 multiplier. I was strongly against any plan that targeted certain types of schools. A class system is designed to put like schools together. That is exactly what our plan does (in an improved manner than before). New Pal and Cathedral were treated exactly the same in this plan. Didn't matter who their players were, where they came from, how much they paid, etc. I and many others are quite proud of this forward thinking, proactive plan. The drama has died without targeting a group. I know the reduced drama has decreased the attention your posts have received, so I understand your desire to try to find a way to stoke that fire when you get a chance.
  13. You can disagree all you want, but I'm one of the architects of the plan, so I'm kinda speaking from a place of knowledge here.
  14. No PC in the Indiana plan. It's not a plan focused on private schools, just competitive balance.
  15. So in essence the Alabama plan is two different plans. 1 is a multiplier plan for all privates, and 2 has a success factor in addition to that.
