  1. 2A Football

    Tre was pretty good as a runner in the JV games. Had surprising speed and broke a few long runs. Agree though, Lance would continue what we've seen with Meurer and Cox.I've heard rumors that the offense may be changed up a bit from the past. I don't know if that's true. Maybe it's time.
  2. 2A Football

    I haven't heard anything officially, but I think Junior wingback Lance Dyer could be moved to the QB slot. Last year's Freshman JV QB Tre Goodman looked good and may be ready to move into the starting spot.
  3. You have every right to be proud. And yes, the T-birds are 14 - 0.
  4. True, but Linton also ran into Scecena twice, Ritter twice, North Vermilion on their way to the title and a couple of outstanding Perry Central teams. The only game that wasn't decided by a TD or less was the 17 - 0 loss to Scecena in '12 or '13. Yes, the south is down from what it used to be.
  5. I know that. If Pioneer beats LCC, I'm confident they also win the Regional.
  6. True, It's been a bit of a shock for us Linton folk to not be playing football in November. I didn't even get my cold weather gear out this season. Most of us are somewhat ambivalent about Eastern Greene. Torn between just naturally not liking anything on the east side of White River and feeling like we ought to support a fellow Greene County school no matter how difficult. It's been a long stretch between the end football and the start of the basketball season. BTW, the Miners are ranked #4 in the preseason 2A poll. Most of the Linton GID posters are struggling with withdrawal and just wanting this football season to go away. :-)
  7. Eastern is pretty good and Hamilton is outstanding as your post points out but when you started comparing backs and indicated that Hamilton is on a "whole other level" than Tyler Meurer, that was a bit of a stretch. However, if and when Hamilton carries the Thunderbirds to the 1A state title, I might concede Caleb is at least on the same level as Tyler.
  8. It's been a long time. Linton has a 19 game Sectional win streak going. Sure be nice to make it an even 20 tonight.
  9. For whatever it's worth, Having soph wingback, Luke Lannan back last week after being out 4 or 5 weeks with mono seems to have given the offense a boost. He was over 100 yards rushing on about a dozen or so carries. The double wing seems to go better with him in there. He's a tough kid with good speed. As coach said after the game last week, it looked like the MoJo was back. I hope it's still there Friday night.
  10. Both Linton and Perry were undefeated with outstanding teams. PC took Linton out in first game. Good case for seeding.
  11. Eastern Greene Thunderbirds

    A sticky situation has occurred concerning the Wood Memorial game. Apparently, Eastern hasn't had to forfeit that game because Wood had an ineligible player also. Seems to me that both teams would have to forfeit rather than both teams escaping punishment. The reason it matters is because Eastern would forfeit the conference championship if they lose the Wood game. Of course, wood can't forfeit a game that they lost.
  12. Thanks for the input. Sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to it.
  13. I know nothing about North Posey other than their schedule and scores. I expect Linton to have their hands full with the Vikings. Toss-up.
  14. I agree with your comparison post. The 2014 team had more potential up front but this group is probably more potent in the running game. It's true, Meurer didn't hit his stride until he took over as QB his Junior year or late in his Soph season. And, of course, no comparison in the schedule.
  15. In 1951, in a game on a very cold night at Marshall, IL, Linton was leading 50 - 0 at the half. Marshall received the ball at the start of the second half, didn't move the ball and punted. The Linton deep back took the punt and punted it back to Marshall. This continued the entire second half. Linton ran no offensive plays the second half. :-). Yes, I was there.
