  1. Congrats to Coach Simmons. Simmons has some strong ties to BD. Former assistant there, former assistant AD, understands all that comes with working at BD. Has head coaching experience, has school admin experience, and leadership experience in the state coaching association. Checks a lot of boxes.
  2. BD is a great job, but it’s a unique job. BD admin is right to be cautious.
  3. Curious question here, is the combined Elk HS ruled out?
  4. I don' t think it's an issue of getting applicants bucksfan.
  5. They are the smallest school in their league, and open to a change. They might fit better in the NIC, replacing someone moving to the NLC. Niles has been a sub .500 team for a while, but like I said they are playing over their head enrollment wise. They've played Fairfield the last two seasons...winning both, one close one not. Edwardsburg MI would be a great get, geographically and competitively. However, they are the big dog in their league, and things are really clicking I doubt they want to change the current formula for no obviously important reason.
  6. Better bring your running game.
  7. Lawrence Central Filled

    Appreciate the post Hawk, but no worries, we all know what we get with DT on these threads. The Schtick is old, it’s nice to see virtually everyone tends to agree.

    No you don't, you just think their fan base is the one most likely to respond to your posts and engage in a debate with you.
  9. Kokomo Open

    Kokomo is going to miss Coach Colby. One of the most underrated coaches in the state. Solid success at Frankfort which is a very tough place to coach, and a state finalist at Kokomo. Who was talking about the state finals at Kokomo before Colby showed up? Congrats coach.
  10. Valparaiso Head Coach

    Isn't it just as telling to quit over signs, as to have the signs cause a commotion in the first place.
  11. 2017 Indianapolis Colts

    Beyond excited, my only concern is that leadership thought it was a good idea to hire him, which doesn't bode well for their next choice.
  12. Valparaiso Head Coach

    So obviously they said no to the DragonSlayer class
  13. Bill Belichick

    If they had never teamed up I think they both may have won a ring or two. If they split up now for some reason, I don't think either would win another. I still think like many, they are going to end their careers at the same time.
  14. Interesting data, but until we have significantly more data sets it's not valuable yet. The attention to detection is also at it's highest level, so until we see anything beyond expected direct coorelation it's hard to draw a scientific conclusion that concussions are actually rising or falling. But of course you already knew that
  15. College Free Agents

    Today coaches are fired extremely quickly at the college level. This would almost completely reverse this, and you'd see a lot of schools keeping head coaches, even as puppets at schools to prevent an exodus. You'll see coordinators now hired and fired left and right instead.
  16. In addition they often are studying people who have donated themselves for study because they believed they had CTE. Not a true random sample.
  17. If you follow state government at all, you know that whatever Illinois does the correct course is the opposite. There is no other state so upside down right now than Illinois.
  18. Can we pin this thread, seeing that it's the most productive DT post in history.
  19. It’s not worth the time sadly.
  20. I agree the new version of Ducktales is significantly inferior to the original.
  21. Personally I think the battle of Antietam was a bigger turning point in the Civil War than the battle of Gettysburg.
  22. Begins I thought you said it’s been happening for years.
