  1. I'm fine with Luers and Dwenger being down for awhile. Helps the rest of NE Indiana out.
  2. Norwell has been. Bellmont has had a few stretches with their title run, but not really considered a powerhouse.
  3. Spring Football

    The basketball and volleyball mentions are one reason I wish athletic associations would do 4 sports seasons. Think they would do better in making sure the athletes are taking care of than clubs and etc. I'd make the schedule for an athletic year as follows: summer, fall, winter, and spring. So the summer season between 8th and 9th grade academic year would consider the athlete as a 9th grader. I'd keep the current rule that you need a waiver to do a sport outside of school.
  4. As much as Coach Minnich is loved, there are just as many who didn't like his ways. I always grew up wanting to play for him and did, though it didn't turn it out how I or my teammates had hoped. He's a great man and great coach. Remember going to that game as a 6 year old going on 7 that you mentioned. Everyone thought that was finally the year AC was breaking through, but it would be the 4th try in that span that changed things. It's a small farming community with a lot of pride and a chip on its shoulders. Basically Linton of the North in terms of all time success. The fans know how the 7th, 8th, Freshmen, and JV teams coming up are doing and what they should expect in terms of record. Anything less than expectations gets that negative buzz. As I mentioned, if you aren't an AC grad coaching, you have to double their expectations.
  5. Well that brings a smile to my face as a Jets fan for the respect we have in the area. However for those other coaches, it's probably not as grand as they imagine unless they are an alumnus. The community is big on wanting to hire within and outsiders haven't lasted long in other sports as coaches.
  6. Why seeding fixes both issues. Makes the regular season meaningful, and makes these stories mean even more if they happen. Easy solution.
  7. What is the size of the DBs? ML is tall and lengthy. They're usually very physical and quick for their size in the trenches.
  8. I know Stateline covers Mercer, Jay, and Adams counties in both states. Does anybody do something similar to that but expanded like Bob Lovell does for IST? I know some Buckeyes who only get Ft Wayne local channels that cannot see their highlights. Some Hoosiers have family in Ohio that cannot get Toledo, Lima, or Dayton. I'd love to cover a 40 county area if possible in some way. 20 Indiana counties: Elkhart, LaGrange, Steuben, DeKalb, Noble, Kosciusko, Wabash, Huntington, Whitley, Allen, Adams, Wells, Grant, Blackford, Jay, Randolph, Delaware, Madison, Henry, and Wayne. Ohio counties: Lucas, Wood, Hancock, Hardin, Logan, Champaign, Clark, Miami, Shelby, Auglaize, Allen, Putnam, Henry, Fulton, Williams, Defiance, Paulding, Van Wert, Mercer, and Darke.
  9. Interested to know how the Warriors are trying to match the size of Tangeman at WR. Habodasz is a good RB as well. I'm sure there are Muhlenkamp, Bertke, Huelsman, and etc to deal with.
  10. Two years ago it was a 5 pt game with a very bad "facemask" call that could have gave the Jets a 2nd chance to win the game. Official on your sideline called it across the field, while the one that was right there didn't call it, but it's done and over. It became 11 pts after a TD with the game already over and a few seconds left. After the 1st quarter that year it looked like it was going to be 3+ TD margin. South Adams shocked the world anyway.
  11. Might be just my thinking, but it was always going to be an internal hire for BD unless Urban, Harbaugh, Saban, or Dabo were applying. No, Woodlan isn't going to be upset. He's brought them back by their good fortune of Harding closing. Why beating them last year was awesome as we should have beat them the previous two years.
  12. Dwenger is in the Archdiocese of SB and in FW city limits. He's in East Allen district and the only opening was NH as he is at Woodlan and Heritage & Leo are filled.
  13. Really? Did you not read his first response? I'm sure you meant New Haven since Harding is closed and Dwenger is more than a mile from him.
  14. I'm well aware of MAC football as a state liner. Be nice if Woodlan wins, but Dirksen and crew are legitimate. No doubt it will make Woodlan tougher. Wonder if Coldwater or Ft Recovery would look for IN opponents. AC used to slaughter Parkway. Like AC and Crestview to play. Coldwater survived LCC last year, and ML handled Coldwater so food for thought.
  15. True and maybe keep Leo out and bring Blackford in.
