  1. SAC 2018

    Snider is a football school and the unfortunate truth is that the SAC alone doesn't prep Snider for the Indy big boys. It would be nice to drop a couple of teams and pick Penn and Cathedral back up. Yes they are. 6A is comprised of 32 schools and Snider is one of the best 15 teams EVERY year, Top 10 most years, and Top 5 some years. 6A needs Snider, and quite frankly, playing Carmel in the regionals is just a bit more intriguing than playing Westfield. No offense to the Shamrocks, but Snider/Carmel goes back almost four decades. Kinda like the 2004 team? Yeah, I agree with that statement. But they've made it to the state game (big boy class) 6 times. Won once, blew one, and fell to the injury bug in another. IMO, Snider was the best team in the state 4 times when the were in the biggest divison...........'87, '92, '97, & '04. It's special when Snider puts together one of those teams. And there is nothing better than taking down a Carmel, Penn, Ben Davis, or Warren Central. I would love to see a voluntary bump up to 6A for good.
  2. SAC 2018

    Snider should just drop the SAC..............period. If Dwenger, Carroll, Homestead, and Northrop want to schedule them, fine. If not, fine. The whole idea of a ten team SAC is ease of scheduling. Unfortunately, that does nothing for Snider's success at the 6a level. Will Snider have future teams worthy of 6a Top 3? No doubt about it. But if that tiny school of 1800 wants to compete with those 3000+ on a yearly basis, then they are going to have to do something about their schedule. The only team they played last year that was even remotely as good as Carmel, was Homestead. As a result, Snider bowed out in regionals to a team they should have beaten by 3 or 4 touchdowns.
  3. You obviously know more than we do, so enlighten us on what happened and why Snider's girls basketball coach deserved more than a one game suspension. All I know of the situation is that he was accused of battery. Definition of battery: the crime or tort of unconsented physical contact with another person, even where the contact is not violent but merely menacing or offensive. Maybe, just maybe the punishment fit the crime. I do know for certain that we're not talking about a coach who lifted a player off the ground, slammed her violently, and shoved her face into the ground several times.
  4. 6A Football

    And a very solid sectional it is. Never count out Westfield!
  5. This is a deep topic. There are many within the Dwenger community who are appalled by this decision. Coach Garrett has some serious issues that need to be addressed. Maybe he has, and if so, good for him. If he hasn't? Shame on him and anyone who thought that a 2 week suspension was enough.
  6. 6A Football

    I see the potential. They were young and beat a VERY solid Snider team. Granted, it was a MAJOR upset...................but still! I had no idea Penn was young. If that's the case, then Penn will be the team to beat given that they wasted Carmel last year. No problem. I love giving Penn credit..............unless they are playing Snider. So it's looking like a semi-state rematch between Carmel and Penn. Snider will be on the outside looking in. If history repeats itself, Snider will be good, but will lose to Carmel by a field goal..............0-6 against the Greyhounds in games decided by 3pts or less.
  7. 6A Football

    Absolutely! And Westfield will be a force to be reckoned with.............as always. But I saw a young Greyhound team come up to Fort Wayne last fall and somehow come away with a victory against a VERY good Snider team. From what I hear, most those kids return. Carmel will be the team to beat in the north.
  8. 6A Football

    Agree. Snider will give them fits, like always. But I see the Greyhounds going into 2018 as the team to beat in the north.
  9. Ryan..................sounds like he was complimenting your father. Your post should have been a simple "thank you."
  10. About ten years ago (maybe longer), Elmhurst dropped Snider from their schedule to pick up an easier opponent. That opponent was Coldwater. I remember that Coldwater's coach wasn't thrilled that his team was chosen as a game to soften Elmhurst's schedule. . The game was over at halftime. Coldwater isn't Snider (much smaller), but pound for pound they have always been one of the better teams in Ohio. I agree, it would be nice to see Coldwater cross the border again. They would be a good opponent for Leo, Woodlan, or New Haven.
  11. Marion Local will be favored to win this game, but there won't be anything comfortable about it. I agree with Coach H on that. Let's not forget that Woodlan is a state champion caliber football program, and they have been for the past three seasons. They are also one of very few Indiana football teams who have knocked heads with Ohio in recent seasons with success. I believe they are 2-1 against Lima Central Catholic............a pretty good football program. Personally, I'm looking forward to my first Woodlan football game when they host Marion Local on August 24. I hope the Warriors are 1-0 going into that game. If they take down Leo in Week 1, their game against Marion Local will get lots of media attention.
  12. Did I not say "Warsaw will still have a tougher road to the state championship than Mishawaka did?" I can tell you how it can get tougher than Carmel and Penn.................how about Snider, Carmel, and Penn?
  13. He goes from a school with an enrollment of 1476 to one with 2133. His pool of talent to choose from just got a 31% boost. Now, with that in mind, Warsaw will still have a tougher road to a state championship than Mishawaka did. Overall though, I think he can field a better team in Warsaw based on enrollment alone.
  14. Outside the Fort Wayne news coverage area, everyone thinks Snider is Fort Wayne Snider. It's just the way it is. I bet the people of Evansville refer to "Evansville" Reitz as just Reitz. The people of South Bend refer to "South Bend" Clay as just Clay. Lafayette Central Catholic as just Central Catholic. Muncie Central as just Central. If someone from Evansville was discussing North Side they would refer to them as Fort Wayne North Side, otherwise the other person in the conversation wouldn't know what the heck they were talking about.
