  1. 2017 Hoosiers

    As I said earlier in this thread don't think we can base a ton on what Ramsey or the team did off these last 2 games because of the talent level one bad , one solid (UM is without a doubt a too 25 team) . I think there is more cause for optimism from taken UM to OT even if they have their own issues (GIVE PETERS A SHOT JIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) I'm really excited to see what IU does vs MSU in East Lansing I really think they can shock Sparty who make be a little over confident
  2. I really wish Harabaugh would wake up with offensive struggles don't you think its time to give Brandon Peters a shot? I mean I just think you know what your getting with O'Korn and its not anything special not saying Peters is the answer to all the offensive issues BUT considering you got beat at home by a rival and your QB threw 3 INTs weather or not, and you have former 5 star QB just sitting on the sidelines waiting don't you think its time to see what he can do? However good for Hunter Johnson if he does at least get his shot next weekend/ getting him in on a drive against WF at least you have some game tape to evaluate him on. Its all you can really hope for.
  3. Indy area teams need to start having overall more consistent success against teams from Cincinnati and Louisville before we go after the nations top teams in Florida, California, and Texas
  4. Jet Sweep/Pass/Fumble

    My guess would be forward pass like the overhand, the point is that the ball is moving forward not backward. But like us if you run the Jet sweep this way its important that you tell the ref this before the game some of them are very aware and will say they know, but some tend to see the ball on the ground in the backfield and just assume fumble. He has this issue once in one of our middle school games this year even after we explained to the ref. It wasn't that it was a lack of knowledge of the rule they were just too lazy to fix the mistake after because well they were doing a middle school game same reason they started the game with 3 guys on the crew instead of waiting 10 extra min till the 4th guy who was stuck in traffic to there.
  5. Romeo cuts list to 7

    Smart by Miller I would spend every sec I wasn't with this years team watching and talking to this kid till he is signed. Especially considering that IU is without a doubt in the top 3 and with U of L out of the mix the local team.
  6. Should the IHSAA mandate that if you beat a non conference opponent by a specific margin that you have to drop said opponent? Been through this argument before with people but after the Monrovia Dawgs put 74 and 82 on the Cascade their Hendricks county and former WCC "Rival" in 2014 &2015 it was time for them to find a new week 2 team I understand if its a conference opponent its there is not a ton you can do, but no reason for lopsided non conference games especially considering most contracts with non conference schools are generally just 2 years. You might even be able to impose a fee for those schools that keep smaller or weaker opponents on the schedule that goes to the team you destroy yearly (like in college or if its an away year game for the better team make the visiting team pay for officials and workers ect.... that would motivate ADs to go out and find more competitive games.
  7. Romeo cuts list to 7

    http://www.courier-journal.com/story/sports/college/kentucky/2017/10/10/romeo-langford-visit-north-carolina-kentucky-big-blue-madness/750894001/ Romeo Langford will visit UNC this weekend instead of UK's Blue Madness event(though he did visit it last year as a Jr). Not a huge surprise as it has been reported that mutual interest cooled heavily over the summer and Langford did not have a good experience playing for Cal with the USA U19 team Uk has downplayed this but with thier commits and guys they may yet land can't blame them for not being too upset. Still my guess this all but puts the list down to 5 IU, Kansas, UNC, UCLA, and Vandy. has already been out to Vandy I believe? and to see Alford last weekend in LA, UNC this weekend IU on the 21st and Kansas on the 28th. I think it will come down to these last 3 UNC, IU and Kansas. I think he will surprise people and commit before the start of his senior year or early during. Of course I am hoping and pleading its IU BUT for some reason this whole UNC visit over UK has my gut feeling that Roy and the Tar heels may come in a swoop him right out from under IU and Kansas.
  8. He has a youtube channel that has some other good ones relating to sports like: Degenerate Football coach gets hired at a Christian school (pretty funny) Every golfer after a match interview (pretty close 2nd to this video) Every NASCAR driver after a race (Has a few good one-liners)
  9. Most of us who have coached at any level have most likely been there at one point or another very light and funny comedian John Christ says what most struggling FB coaches are thinking Its been tossed all around social media if you haven't seen it take a min and watch pretty funny stuff!
  10. Avon Junior RB Sampson James (1,053 yards, 13TDs) picked up offers from Cincinnati and Minnesota to go along with his IU offer over the weekend. Added Iowa yesterday to the list yesterday 10/12

    Hey that was Tom Crean's thing though don't get me wrong I'm glad to see IU guys succeeding in the NBA , but I would much rather have had a program known for being a consistent Big 10 title contender and a possible final 4 contender and had at least 1 trip in his 9 years (especially with the talent they had in 2011). Agree I am 100% bias and that makes watching them win THAT much better to quote Lil Wayne "This a'int a dis song .....I just love my team"
  12. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO math!!!!!!! We like football that's why us coaches became Social Studies and PE Teachers
  13. Indiana Crossroads Conference Week 9

    Week 9 Pick em Lutheran @ Shortridge Ritter @ Park Tudor Monrovia @ Scecina U of I Mooresville @ Beech Grove Triton Central @ Speedway Whiteland @ Greenwood Rushville @ Greensburg Tri-West @ Southmont Heritage Christian @ Knightstown Union County @ Tri North Putnam @ Cloverdale Indpls Washington @ Paoli Hagerstown @ Cambridge City Lincoln
  14. Romeo cuts list to 7

    THOUGHT (key word) Trending up? He has been in the league for 6 years now... calling him a role player is generous on my part. I see Eric Gordon as a role player as well and he has had a vastly superior NBA career thus far. (but hey Moore will always have the state title right?) Would have to do some digging but gonna say he was not on any big board even before the ACL's maybe a late 2nd rounder but definitely not a polished NBA prospect. Will Sheehey had more NBA upside (not as good of a shooter, but far superior athlete and defensive skills) Agree he still has a ceiling IF he can stay healthy (keeping his body trained for duration of 82 games is something he should have at least began to learn in Purdue strength and conditioning program) Agree again a very nice NBA caliber prospect but because of his natural attributes maybe learned how to shoot a little better at Purdue but thats about it. Possibly could have developed into a lottery to top 12 pick with 2 years in East Lansing instead of West Lafayette IMO. Just thought if you develop NBA level prospects your best PG in the last 15 years would have developed into one after 4 years in Matt Painters world class NBA system
  15. I'm not sure why someone down voted , but I would up vote 1000x's if I could i agree with you 1 million percent! Same can be said for Muda as well people complain and call these guys "trolls" but their topics and comments produce the most replies, reading and overall traffic. Honestly before Driven-T came back last couple of weeks I was waiting for the thread were everyone is just posting the lyrics to Kumbaya , it was really getting a little on the boring side I was on the college basketball, OBO, and College FB forum more than the HS one.
