  1. Whiteland @ Columbus East

    I don't know but, if we're basing this on history, Whiteland should be above .500 this year. If I recall, they lost some really good players after the 2015 and 2016 seasons but they are generally over .500 with Darrin Fisher at the helm. This will be his 14th season at Whiteland and last year was his worst season there ever. It was one of only three seasons in which he has had a team below .500. He has averaged 7 wins and 4 losses per season there. I imagine Whiteland will run the same offense. Usually they'll have two wideouts and load the backfield. Lots of pre-snap motion with a wideout running towards the backs. They'll fake hand-offs and the QB, one of the backs, or the receiver that was in motion will end up with the ball trying to pick up yards on the ground. Sometimes the receiver takes the hand-off and sometimes he ends up with it on a reverse. Lots of moving parts to keep a close eye on. East got burned real bad by this in the 2010 5A sectional semis. We struggled in the first half against it in the 2015 sectional semis and in the first quarter of the 2016 sectional championship before pulling away. The defense will have to play very disciplined and try not to overpursuit on the fakes. However, if we can get ahead big early or if we can get a two possession lead late, Whiteland will have no choice but to abandon this offense. If so, and if the QB play is as bad as it has been for them in the past, the wheels will fall off quickly for them and they'll be in unfamiliar territory.

    @btownqbcoach Did you guys get your turf installed in time to host the scrimmage with Jennings County?
  3. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    I heard East didn't look too impressive. A guy told me we looked undersized and gave up two easy, long touchdowns. I'm hoping someone can refute this as I wasn't there to witness it.
  4. No I get that. What I'm saying is that we can't look at numbers and stats and say they're the gospel truth. Numbers and stats are based on the past. They can be used to predict the future but that doesn't mean it will happen.
  5. That's why they play the game though. 16 seeds don't ever beat 1 seeds either but that just happened in March.
  6. Cinderellas are teams that complete a series of upsets, not just one. Also, the competitive nature of some players isn't going to allow you to talk sense into them and tell them that it isn't possible to pull an upset or go on a Cinderella run.
  7. What you said isn't what I said. You're implying that I'd be waiting until the final game to "give it my all". What I actually said is that I would want to give it one more shot. Maybe, just maybe, we can all put it together for one game to shock the state. All it takes is one game. Maybe that would be the game.
  8. I just know the competitor in me would want to give it one more shot. Even if we had no chance to win state, all I'd be thinking about is making the season last as long as I could. Maybe at the very least we win one game and shock the world. Heck, sometimes a crappy team upsetting a really good team is as much of an accomplishment as a state championship because that's the best they can do anyway. But to be, let's say, a 2-7 team that knocked off a 9-0 team, that would make my entire season because you know everyone is going to be talking about it.
  9. What I'm telling you is that I'd rather the players of those teams decide whether it's worth it or not. They're the ones playing the games.
  10. To me, it's about the kids. I'd rather they tell me what's best for them than any of us.
  11. Smack Talk

    There's a very, very fine line between being hard enough that it shreds the roof of your mouth and being soggy.
  12. I'd love to poll the players from the schools in the bottom 25% and ask them which one they'd rather have. If they agree with you then that's all the evidence I need.

    What? It's got lots on your "boy". It doesn't shred the roof of your mouth when you eat it.
