  1. CIC Pick Em Semi-State Week

    Hahaha!!!! Wow, jacked that up bad. Gotta go with public school either way, Southridge to win! Geeeeezzzz
  2. CIC Pick Em Semi-State Week

    Eastbrook Carmel Kokomo East Central Lowell (One would have to be crazy to ever pick against coach Kilmer, he's got 22 district titles.) Eastern Greene (It'd hurt me too much to pick a private school, 5 sectional titles and 2 regional titles for a Lutheran program that's been in existence for 11 years? Yah, no advantages in recruiting for this private school at all.................)

    It looks like Frankton will be limping into basketball season a bit, I guess McGuire and Weins are in a sling/boot and will be for several weeks of the season????? I imagine the OH kids that are on the team and are home-schooled live well within the district limits (as if it mattered anymore) But yah, I could see them having 1 or 2 home-school kids being starters, but darn, 4 out of 5??? That's one hell of a recruiting job by OH and I applaud that.

    Wow, I did not realize OH was pre-season No. 1! That's got to be a first for the CIC? I think Mississinewa had several starters coming back too right? They should be tough as well, they were the only team to beat Oak Hill last year in the CIC, albeit in the Grant County Tournament. Any truth to Blackford rumor mill regarding new coach bringing 1 or 2 of his very talented grandkids to Hartford City with him to play basketball? Are they going to be competitive/relevant again soon? I may be able to start a weekly thread, just depends how busy work is............
  5. CIC Pick Em Regional Week

    Hell yah! You've got it rolling already on HS BBALL forum, come on CIC folks contribute.
  6. CIC Pick Em Regional Week

    Greenwood (as much as I'll be rooting for the Indians, Greenwood's SOS looks to be 10x tougher, they beat four 5A/6A schools in regular season) Eastbrook (perhaps a preview of years to come if Lapel can join CIC? Eastbrook by 3 TDs) Evansville Central (better casinos in Evansville compared to the ones near East Central : ) Woodlan (they've been highly regarded in 2A all year) Southwood (both teams coming off of huge road wins at Adams Central and at Sheridan, I'm still not a MC believer yet)
  7. CIC Regional

    Both teams on the road = both teams at home for semi-state? So happy for both CIC sectional champions! 2/5 on the pick 'em games last week........ "Samsonite I was way off" Lapel was probably the biggest surprise win in the area, they didn't just squeak by either, apparently they took it to the Raiders at their house.
  8. CIC Sectional Finals

    Good luck Eastbrook and Mississinewa!!!!! Get some hardware tonight!

    Frankton should be pretty tough again, bringing back 3/5 starters from last year's CIC 2nd place team. ; ) The freshman class is pretty good but unsure how many will play up at varsity level. Key (Jr) will probably be the leading scorer now, he can shoot really well and has been starting since he was a freshman. I imagine HC Brobston had a huge exhale after McGuire made it out of football season alive, he'll be needed on the court 30 minutes per night. Detling should be the go-to big man underneath, I guess we'll just have to wait and read the paper to figure out the rest roster.

    Hell yah! I'm down for a weekly CIC hoops discussion! It's shocking to me actually that in "the basketball state" this forum isn't nearly as popular yet compared to HS football forum. 19 days until tip-off.
  11. CIC Pick Em Sectional Championship

    Ole Miss Eastbrook Jimtown Shenandoah Sheridan
  12. CIC Sectional Finals

  13. CIC Sectional Week 2

    Ole Miss Brebeuf Eastbrook Lapel Shenandoah PHHS Nice to see so much Madison County representation in the 2nd round!
  14. CIC Sectional Week

    I'm excited/happy for the Bruins even though I picked them to lose, post-season wins are huge when you're rebuilding a program! There were no other shocking scores or upsets from week 1 CIC sectional games, but I think the 2nd round has the potential to have some classics: Shenandoah @ Frankton Alex @ Lapel Brebeuf @ Blackford Marion @ Mississinewa Eastbrook @ Rensselaer
  15. Sectional 36

    No real surprises in the first round other than maybe Winchester putting up a good fight against Lapel and the total combined points of the Elwood vs. Alex game (98). I did that Math without a calculator, pretty good for a Frankton Alum. Alex @ Lapel Shenandoah @ Frankton Here's my predictions for Friday's games: I'll be hoping and praying my Eagles can get it done, but the Raiders have about 3 athletes too many and beat FHS by 3 TDs 40-20 and this time there won't be any broken locker room windows after the game : ) Lapel recovers from sluggish play last Friday on the road and wins big at home 41-13, although deep down I'm rooting for the Tigers to pull off a huge upset.
