  1. BiG rEd & BlAcK

    7979/KISS and the members of the EC staff he had lunch with at the clinics....
  2. Do they play any IN schools? The size isn't tragically smaller....it would be an interesting. ...and a great haunted house if I'm not mistaken ;) (thinking back to the 90s...lol)
  3. Spring Football

    Are you sure it was high school players? Several schools do a "camp" of sorts for they middle/school junior high programs in late spring.
  4. East Noble or New Prairie would be good "fits" from a competitive stand point....puts travel longer. East Noble has usually played at least 2 NLC teams on their schedule every year I can remember. Jimtown and Bremen are good "fits" from a geography/historical perspective. Most NLC schools play these schools in other sports. Bremen is a former member if I recall. Here is an off the wall idea that wouldn't happen....Penn???????? I think the conference schedule would be more competitive most years....especially with Bart now at Warsaw. The real monkey wrench would be only having two non-conf football games. This would limit the ability to play larger region schools or some of the out of state powers they've done historically. Most NLC schools already schedule Penn in other sports, so outside of football I think its an even better fit. From a competitive stand point...I think East Noble would be best across all sports. For a pipe dream perspective...Penn would be cool. If I'm betting actual money....Jimtown.
  5. Hardest hit I ever saw in person....1993 Goshen/Plymouth. Kenyon Hartfield of Goshen came free on kickoff coverage and blew up the Plymouth returner. The ball few several yards away from the impact. Can't find the video online anywhere but it may be out there.
  6. Has Hell froze over?

    I'm more curious if they will be adding a play clock??
  7. In this order.... 1. Kate Jackson 2. Jacqueline Smith 3. Farrah Fawcett Feel free to debate... (I don't recognize Cheryl Ladd officially....and only acknowledge Tanya Roberts in the context of Beastmaster). Those born after the last bicentennial will be lost on this one....
  8. Alabama vs. Georgia - Who Ya' Got?

    I'm boycotting viewership until they put the game on a weekend or start it earlier....of course if we were on central time like the lord intended none of this would be an issue. /end grandpa rant/
  9. I'm not a school finance expert, but I can tell you that current law does not allow schools to move funds freely between all "departments" of their budget. Certain funds must stay in specific "departments". They have some leeway in specific instances, but the "Money is Money" argument is not founded in current law regarding school budgets. Not saying this is right or wrong, but that argument needs to be made to your representatives.
  10. When grandparents are in town we go two deep, man under...that helps a lot.
  11. Time commitment is relative for a lot of reasons... Fresh out of college, new teacher young coach....I didn't give a lick about time commitment. I was at everything, worked as many summer camps as I could....early mornings, long nights....coached more than one sport....etc, etc. I loved it. Loved being around the team, the coaches. Coaches were my social circle. Fast forward (more than) a few years. I'm married. I have three kids, they are in their own sports, activities. Wife and I both work full time. Now I have commitments well beyond what I had as a single, young coach. Summers are a much busier time for football than they used to be (for better and worse). My wife understands, I was a coach when we met. She is a trooper and shoulders a lot of the burden all fall. But we are naive to think the time commitment today is the same as it was 15 years ago...maybe even less than 10 years ago. I (and my family) are very fortunate. A very understanding Head Coach, who prioritizes our ability to make time for our families, coach our kids teams, get to their games, etc. And a large staff that can spread the work load. The pressures for time, are MUCH greater on small/mid-sized staff's where they have less shoulders for that "burden".
  12. 40-Second Play Clock

    From my perspective, don't go back to 25.... Also curious...Officials, what is the biggest change on your end of dealing with "hurry up" types of situations? (i.e. fast tempo offense that wants to snap/freeze count as soon as possible, end of half hurry up situations, etc). Specifically mechanics, communication
