  1. Offense flagged for holding at own 20. (This is the spot of the foul, not the los.) On the same play, offense also flagged for personal foul, illegal contact to the head (sorry if that’s not the correct terminology) at own 45. Ball is downed at the 50. How is the penalty assessed? Does defense have the choice of which penalty to accept? Where should the be placed for the next play. This scenario happened Friday & I was admittedly confused. Thanks!
  2. GS’s press box is very nice. But it is not a hands down winner any longer. Got to see HH’s new one tonight. It is every bit as nice as GS’s. Btw, the film area up top at HH is now covered.
  3. I’ll reserve my rankings until upgrades till I see all the upgrades in person. FWIW, SS has a new home/visitors locker room, concessions, restroom building set to open this season. Bleacher upgrades supposedly coming next year. As for separating NP, TC & PC, the tie-breaker for me would be access to locker rooms for visiting teams. TC & PC have visitors locker rooms close to the field. NP visitors dress far enough away that most teams choose to go onto the practice field behind the visitors bleachers at halftime.
  4. I knew there would be a walkway in between the two sets of bleachers, but I like the fact that it appears plenty wide enough to have a complete row of wheelchair/handicapped accessible seating behind the lower bleachers. Often times (and almost always out of necessity), handicapped-accessible seating is at the bottom of a set of bleachers. It's nice that those folks will be able to watch a game at the Jungle with a good view of the field.
  5. School Fight Songs

    Tango, do you happen to know which B10 songs Bosse, Central and North use? I'm pretty sure I know the others in the city (and surrounding areas). Memorial -- Notre Dame Victory March (as Tango mentioned) Harrison -- Hail To The Victors (Michigan) Mater Dei -- Go, U Northwestern Reitz -- On, Wisconsin Castle -- original, but I don't know the name PAC Forest Park -- Go, U Northwestern Gibson Southern -- Minnesota Rouser Heritage Hills -- original: Onward, Onward, Heritage Hills North Posey -- Go, U Northwestern Pike Central -- Go, U Northwestern South Spencer -- Hail, Purdue (school song) / Minnesota Rouser (fight song) Southridge -- On, Wisconsin Tecumseh -- Go, U Northwestern (seriously, why the obsession with this fight song in the PAC???) Tell City -- original: Tell City, We're MIghty Proud of You Big 8 Boonville -- original: BHS Fight Song (Here's To Our Team Boys) Jasper -- Indiana, Our Indiana Mt. Carmel -- don't know Mt. Vernon -- University of Kentucky Fight Song (I'm fairly certain this is correct, but not 100% sure) Princeton -- On, Wisconsin Vincennes Lincoln -- Illinois Loyalty Washington -- Notre Dame Victory March On a side note...I've noticed whether it's high school or college, the older the lyrics the cheesier they tend to be. Boonville's original fight song is pretty old and, as a result, starts off with a terribly cheesy line: "Here's to our team boys! Here's to our school! Here's to the place where good feelings rule!" As a BHS grad, I am able to both love the song and cringe at the cheesiness all at the same time! Side note #2: Speaking of old fight songs and lyrics, I believe Tell City has the oldest original fight song in SW Indiana. I have read somewhere (in a TC program or on their school website) that their song was written by a student or graduate back in the early to mid 1920's.
  6. John Edge's record at Owensboro Catholic: 14 years: 130 wins, 50 losses. (.722 win %). Only 2 losing seasons. 8 seasons of 10 or more wins. (At least) 2 appearances in the Ky 2A State Championship game.
  7. Yep. South Spencer just issued a release this afternoon. The release was careful to note that Edge has not yet been hired, but that "the search committee...has named John Edge as its recommendation to the board as the new Rebel Head Football Coach. A public board meeting will take place on March 12th, 2018, where the board will give the recommendation official status." So that means an agreement in principle has been reached, nothing has yet been signed and nothing is yet 100% official. But I cannot imagine South Spencer issuing the release today if it weren't confident that the board would accept the recommendation. IMO, this (pending) hire is pretty much a home run for SSHS. Edge has been extremely successful at Owensboro Catholic. They are a perennial power in Kentucky and from what I can gather, he is very well respected as a head coach.
  8. HH wins 29-23. Tell City made a concerted effort to limit possessions & try to slow down the Patriots. But Heritage Hills was up to the task. Both teams were very good defensively as expected. Patriots were perhaps a little better as they held TC to just 35% shooting and forced 11 turnovers by our unofficial account. Blake Sisley hit 4 huge ft’s in the final minute to lead all scorers with 11. Mitchel Becher added 8. Murray Becher battled foul trouble & finished with 6. Scherry & Jones each had 2. Braeden Beard led TC with 8. Hunt had 5. Arnold & Blake both had 3, Lyons & Fest each had 2. Burying the lead a bit here, but the win ensures HH it’s first PAC boys basketball championship since 04-05 and the program’s 15th overall, the most of any PAC member.
  9. I’ll try to post something after the game if you can’t Dave. I’ve seen TC twice & been impressed with their defense each time. TC is also a relentless rebounding team when they are at their best. Those happen to be strengths of HH too. It’ll be interesting.
  10. Forest Park at Heritage Hills

    Thanks. I missed that score.
  11. Forest Park at Heritage Hills

    Arguably the best game Mitchel Becher has played. Great decision-making on offense and very, very good defense. His 3 at the end of the 3rd was a real dagger. Took a 7 pt lead up to 10 & put momentum squarely behind HH going to the 4th. overall, the defense for HH was very good after giving up a few things early. Patriots cannot rest on their laurels. Another opponent undefeated in conference awaits tonight at Pike Central.
  12. Heritage Hills 44 Jasper 29

    Very impressed with the Patriot defense today. Not a good shooting day for HH, but they were locked in on D. The performance on that end of the floor was how they were able to win by 15 at a place that is not easy to go into & win.
  13. PAC Conference 2017-2018

    Boonville had a nightmarish night in Lincoln City. They’ve been w/o starting guard Rylan Hicks for a few games. He has a cast on his wrist. Ross Kirkland injured an ankle during the week & was in street clothes. Then, during warmups, their all-Area, USI-bound leading scorer Glen Rouch hobbled off the floor with a leg injury & was done for the night. And if that wasn’t enough, guard Kenyon Bruner suffered an apparent knee injury 9 seconds into the game. That’s 4 of their top 6 or 7 players down before anyone had broken a sweat. Never seen anything like it.
  14. 13th annual PSC Holiday Classic

    Yeah, I’d say that’s probably right. But I don’t actually know it for a fact.
  15. 13th annual PSC Holiday Classic

    Also need to acknowledge a performance in the 3rd-place game. South Spencer’s Dylan Kelly was electric as he poured in 33. He was flat unstoppable in the 1st half as he scored 22 of his team’s 27. Sounds weird to say, but both teams were actually playing really good defense, despite Kelly going off. In the end, Tell City got a few more stops & gritted out a 5-point win
