  2. 1A Title Eastern Greene vs Pioneer

    It is refreshing to see that some programs and kids have that drive. Too many times, we have players and parents that are riding that middle school success train like it means anything 2 and 3 years later. "Just wait until this groups gets up there playing varsity". Hear this way to often. Kids listen to how good they are going to be, many fall by the wayside because they are not seeing the field their freshmen and sophomore years. I see this expressed on this board many times...Not sure it always pans out. Here is a case where it has and it is neat to see a group of kids respond in the right way.
  3. There are 26 job openings now! I think that is a big number for this time of year especially since the shuffle has not taken place yet. I just think everyone sees the Hobart job as just another job. It does not hold the credibility that it once did.
  4. Hamilton Heights

    Yeah, I did and they do not post them.
  5. Hamilton Heights

    Need HH's season stats for the game tonight. Anyone have them or have a link?
  6. The Hoosier Conference 2018

    Has LCC started their coaching search?
  7. Best Chances for 2018 Title

    Barajas is a great player, but they return a healthy number of their starting defense that is very good.
  8. Did anyone else notice that the Kokomo qb never put his mouthpiece in? He just placed a portion of it in the side of his mouth. Is this illegal? If it is, it was never called.
  9. 1A Title Eastern Greene vs Pioneer

    So it wasn't my point that speed was the only noticeable difference in the game, and maybe I didn't explain very well. I felt that much of Pioneers success in all aspects of the game was won at the line of scrimmage. It was glaring to me that EG played very tall up front the entire game. Not that speed wasn't a factor, but Pioneer had any downhill play they wanted because their oline had better leverage. I'm not sure Pioneer needed to run anything but trap. if you take #5 out of the game on offense I think pioneer still scores 35 points or better just because of winning the battle in the trenches. On the defensive side, it is nice to have a front 4 that allows Pioneer the flexibility they have in the lb/secondary alignments and responsibilities. Again, feel that pad level was a huge part of this. Pioneer just played with better leverage. So not saying Pioneer didn't have a speed advantage. I felt the speed difference was closer than the difference in the trenches every down.

    You are missing the point and that is ok.
  11. 1A Title Eastern Greene vs Pioneer

    Good observations, but I did not seem to see a glaring difference in speed as it seemed that Pioneer had most of its success running midline, trap, and power read. It seemed that most plays were right through the heart of the defense. I did not feel the point of attack was the edge of the defense.
  12. 1A Title Eastern Greene vs Pioneer

    One observation from the game, it seemed that big difference in the game was pad level. I thought the two teams were very evenly matched, but as you watch the game up front, it seemed that Pioneer played with a much lower pad level than EG did. Would like to know if anyone else felt this way. To me it was a big difference in the game.
  13. Saw a few other conferences getting things started. Who are the front runners from each side? Who will surprise teams this year? Who graduated a bunch of seniors? Who are the players to watch? Feel free to add comments or observations to the discussion.
  14. A Primer on Holding

    But in your analysis you are punishing a player for being better. You have decided that an overmatched player gets to hold every play that is a pass play. Sorry but I don’t think you should do that. Call a hold one time and maybe he will stop holding and try to block him in a legal manner. I’m not sure the rules allow for you to make judgements like that. I don’t want 50 flags, that is not my argument. And we aren’t talking a state championship game either. But I would not want to have a player go through an entire game frustrated at being held every play and have bobref just shrug his shoulders and say “sorry son, you have him outmatched, deal with it”.
