  1. School Fight Songs

    Based on what I'm seeing on here, seems like half the state uses Wisconsin's fight song as their own.
  2. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Team camps have begun. Where does each HHC school go for team camp? Columbus East goes to Hanover College.
  3. School Fight Songs

    Columbus East- USC fight song Columbus North- Notre Dame fight song Jennings County/Seymour/Greensburg- Wisconsin fight song And if I recall correctly, Batesville uses IU's fight song. My favorite thing about Jennings County is that they traditionally welcome the visiting team/fans to their field by playing their fight song for them. Then they turn to the home crowd and play the Jennings County fight song as the team runs onto the field. It always made things weird when they play Seymour or Greensburg and they play the exact same fight song twice. It's really silly that their rival, Seymour, shares the same fight song.
  4. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    They don't want any of that famous Brownstown Central wing-T offense.
  5. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Oh come on. Don't you know football is the only sport that matters? Who cares if all of the other sports are competitive. We should make rash decisions on conference affiliation based on the current state of affairs in football!
  6. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    His comment was that adding a third non-conference game would appease Columbus East, Jennings County and Madison to stay in the HHC. That's what I responded to. Would his format work? Yes. I actually liked the alignment. However, Silver Creek has no desire to step up to the HHC and Columbus North has no desire to step down to the HHC. If Conference Indiana falls apart I believe Columbus North would rather join a conference full of Indy area schools than play in the HHC.
  7. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Not sure if you've heard but the HHC has moved to a six game schedule for its teams which leaves three weeks for non-conference opponents. So having the extra non-conference game is already a reality.
  8. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Well, yeah. They'd win it with 4A enrollments. Take away 300-1,000 students (depending on the school) and then see if they could win in 3A. Was Madison the best team in the HHC that year? Don't know. Probably not. However, with their 3A enrollment, they were able to win a state title and that's impressive. Can't take anything away from that. I'd rather have that state title than an HHC title. Nobody is going to look back and say, "You may have won a 3A state title but you didn't win the HHC." Nobody would remember or even care to remember. See what the offseason does to me? lol
  9. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Madison won the 3A state baseball title in 1999. Won't happen. 1a. Madison has to make the decision to leave 1b. The HHC has to make the decision to invite Silver Creek to take Madison's place OR invite them as a ninth member 2. Silver Creek has to make the decision to accept. Guys, we've gone over this crap time and time again. We've mentioned Columbus East, Jennings County, Madison, Seymour and/or BNL all leaving the conference and we've all mentioned Silver Creek and the like as replacement members. It's time to let these hopes and wishes die. We've beat this dead horse as well. Let's just let things play out. They'll happen if they're meant to be. "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."
  10. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    I saw him play plenty of second halves last year so I know how good that kid is. lol
  11. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    There will come a time when East loses an HHC game and there will come a time when East is no longer on top. Personally, I hope it doesn't happen anytime soon but I'm not dumb enough to take it for granted. I still remember the dark ages of East football in the late 90s. We went 6-5 in '03 (my freshman year) so I was there during a time when East wasn't the dominant HHC football team. I just hope our younger crowd continues to show up when they see East losing for the first time in their lives. And I hope the older crowd isn't short-sighted and remembers to support the team through the tough times once again. They leave it up to the schools to decide and I'm glad they do. Their job is to worry about education. Leave the athletics to the respective schools.
  12. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Two different mentalities in the schools. North looks at themselves as an elite school/program so they think they are above the HHC. Some of them still think they're above Columbus East as well. They have more money at that school and have more of a white collar attitude. As for East, there's a lot of pride at the school but there's a more blue collar mentality. They're more willing to accept things as they are in athletics. This is just me looking at it through my eyes and experiences but North really puts forth an effort to strive to be one of the elite athletic programs in the state. I don't get that same sense of urgency from East. Personally, I feel like that's why both schools can't get on the same level and agree to be in the same conference.
  13. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    I can promise you Coach Gaddis doesn't let them look past conference play to sectionals. If that was the case then they would've lost an HHC game or two by now.
  14. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    I'm not saying it can't be done. I'm just asking why. It's HIGH SCHOOL. It's not that big of a deal. @fkfootball Wasn't referring to you when I made my post. I agree with your statements.
  15. Hoosier Hills Conference 2018

    Are we really discussing this again? Columbus East tried to get in the Mid-State Conference. The Mid-State took Perry Meridian instead. Jennings County and Madison have considered leaving but the HHC scheduling changes have delayed any decision on that. From what I understand, leaving the conference still isn't off the table for them though. And why does Columbus East NEED to leave the conference @DrivenT? As it has been stated before, there are 19 other sports teams between boys and girls (20 if you count unified track). East doesn't dominate in every single sport. Floyd Central is the class of the conference athletically. If East can win state in football in 4A and then make the 5A state title game in consecutive seasons (winning one of them), why do they need to leave this "lackluster conference"? They've already proven the doubters wrong that say their schedule/conference doesn't prepare them for the state tournament. Who cares if it's "convenient" or not? Are you in charge of the athletic accounts? If the school wants to save money by not actively pursuing another conference then that's their right to do so. This isn't college athletics. Give it a rest. P.S.- Thanks for making your point political at the end. That wasn't needed. Your point came across without that nonsense. We hear about politics everywhere else. Can we, at the very least, please keep it off of here?
