  1. And now the big announcement today. Any lowered head to initiate contact is a penalty. That's going to add some flags. I think if they enforce this in full, the games this season will be impossible to watch.

    CG isn't going anywhere. The athletes naturally may be better at LC but parents invest heavily in their children at CG and develop their talent. The bantam program is outstanding and community support is over the top, neither of which can you really say about LC. I remember watching an away game with LC a few years back that was all of 15 miles away and they were coming off a state finals appearance and there was maybe 50 people in the visitors stands. That wasn't that long ago, and not that much has changed. Not to mention they either kicked out or suspended their IEFA coaches just a few years ago for their behavior and that's the best their youth program has to offer and how their being developed. I'm not sure this coach really knows everything he's getting. It ain't Moeller.
  3. Maybe just something casual like this would work.
  4. BigTime I think your about right as to what middle of the road is to get a decent financial aid package at the d3 level. Your gonna get some type of scholarship but likely no grant money. Still 30k to go to Hanover unless mom and dad are buying starts that person off with significant debt. A 3.5 and 1200 would bump that scholarship money and likely bring grant money in to play. That's where if your a good football player and they want you, that grant can be significant and keeps the school out of trouble. If they give a 10k a year merit grant to a kid with 3.0 and 950 they are going to get dinged by the ncaa.
  5. They've struggled with LCC the last couple years and Marion Local is much better. Commend them for paying those schools, it will make them better for the tourney. Very much the model that has for worked for one particular school here in Indy.
  6. I certainly don't want to offend anyone and I'm not specifically talking about any one person and BigTime if Johnny is your kid, I apologize up front. Sounds like your son made an excellent choice to choose education first at the college level and that's commendable. But, the key statement you made, was Johnny Footballs "middle of the road grades". Let's be honest, middle of the road grades doesn't impress anyone, including college football coaches. Not at any level. Now at some point there is trade offs, but in general, there's enough talented kids out there that do have good grades, that the colleges/universities will recruit them even if they're lesser talent. My point is, if a kid that everyone think can play at the next level, and he's not, it's likely because of grades. Transcript requests are standard procedure up front. At the D3 level you can go to a 50k+ a year school if they want you to play football and pay state school type tuition if you took care of business in the classroom. So many parents these days pay all this money for their young athletes to perform better on the field with this pipe dream that little Johnny is getting a D1 ride when in 7th grade he's 5'2" and 120 lbs. DB. Their thought is his growth spurt is coming...you don't know what you don't know right. He's awesome in 7th graded, because he's fast and plays hard and all that but the high school comes and maybe he's the 5'9" 165 lbs DB that is all conference and by all rights a good player at the high school level and can absolutely go play D3. But the problem is, the parents were investing in the wrong thing when he was in 7th grade. If he was putting the time then on his grades that he was spending at speed and agility training and focusing on his education first and sports second, he would be playing out his dream. Maybe not at the D1 level but reality sets in with most when they just know they don't physically match up to play at that level and that's pretty easy for most to accept.

    Yeah, I'd be real worried. It's six months on a throwing program for a pitcher after the four to six months of healing time. And realistic time is 18 months to get back to previous form if there's no set backs. My guess is from the time it's taken, he's either had decompression surgery which is why it's taken so long to recover, or he didn't and now the pain is caused because the healing tissue doesn't have room to expand and that's the "procedure" they keep talking about, he might need. It's a coin toss for pitchers to recover from. Far lower percentage of success then UCL reconstruction, which has become production line type procedure. All in all, I'd have rather had Tommy John. Shoulder still hurts 25 years later. I will say, football throwing was a big part of my rehab and could throw a football much harder than I could a baseball, sooner in the process. Arm speed was very hard to get back without pain. Strength wasn't really an issue.
  8. He's created an amazing culture with that program that really extends beyond the playing field.

    I would agree for both those same reasons. And would add that the players closest relationship is with their position coach which may not always change out with the head coach.
  10. Well that's one big stout dude no doubt. He doesn't get inside very well that's for sure and he's consistently in the facemask which is a problem. He never once works back down. It seems like he's going against the same couple dudes every time which at the opening means they're studs. i'm sure his friday night tape is dominant. Hands, hands, hands...it's been that way for a while. Keep the head out of it.

    Only as long as they declare the transfer immediately to give the original school a chance to account for the departure. Definitely before the early signing period, and I'd say small window, like within two weeks of the coach fire or resignation. And as long as the season is complete. And no way on the sixth season. Move on with your life. Hilarious the example by the author states exactly what would not be the case. OSU player transfers to Mich and wouldn't need Urbans approval to play right away. Well if he was eligible for the rule, Urban wouldn't be the coach at OSU.
  12. IU-Purdue Recruiting Deadlock

    PU will continue to need to increase assistant coach pay if they want to recruit and compete, otherwise their better assistants will get pilfered by the higher end programs especially if they continue improving. Only Rutgers and IU pay their assistant coaches less. Which that's after a half million bump Brohm was able to negotiate when he came in as they were dead last. They're over 2.5 million less than Michigan who's tops in the conference in assistant coaches pay. These are the guys recruiting and developing the players and if they're good, they will absolutely leave for another 100k-250k a year. Purdue is sandwiched right in between those two powerhouse big12 teams of Kansas and Kansas St on the asst pay scale so I think there's probably pretty good evidence that there's a correlation. And this is just for the 9 full time assistant coaches this year so now that they're allowed 10 moving forward, the discrepancy probably just got bigger. IU lost the bucket and they're in the bucket from this perspective. Only two power 5 schools (Texas Tech and Iowa St) pay their assistants slightly less. So IU says they want to compete but they don't and PU is only marginally better at this point. If some assistants can get paid more at App St, Troy, Georgia State, Arkansas St, etc. your not really competing as a high end program.
  13. We did talk to the actual coach who's name was used and he confirmed it wasn't him. Also wasn't a single incident as he reported many schools from the area had reported the same and all using his name and contact info. He didn't have any clue why. I did also find out that there have been a number of local players go there in the recent past. Current staff is all new this year and as he stated, they're not recruiting here. Weird.

    Spot on!
  15. It's complicated and with a very saturated market, everyone looks for an angle. Personally, I think seasonal participation policies are going to be the future and they won't be cheap. I'd hate to say I didn't have personal experience but you have to be very careful with your policy now and what is covered and what is not. One ambulance trip after leaving the field on a stretcher, CT, MRI, xrays and emergency room expenses push it close to 10k so when you insurance refuses coverage, at least initially, you get nervous. They tried hard to push liability to the school.
