  1. Hobart Head Coach Ryan Turley has resigned and the job is now open. The Brickies finished 6-4 this season, 3-2 in the Northwest Crossroads Conference. Hobart has a storied football history, with 11 state finals appearances and 4 championships, all under legendary Coach Don Howell.
  2. I was reading some of the comments regarding his retirement and it appeared as if his methods were a bit "harsh" for the locals. I thought he was originally from that area?
  3. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21693372/former-smu-patriots-colts-coach-ron-meyer-dies-age-76 Meyer had movie star good looks back in his prime in the 70s. Seems like everything went in to reverse for him after the SMU death penalty, despite the fact that he had an NFL career. His star was never as bright as it was when he was leading the "Pony Express." He definitely got out of Dodge, or Dallas, when the poop hit the fan. Seemed like a great guy, who liked to live life on the edge a bit.
  4. IPS really should just cut down to 2 football playing schools. I big (Tech) and 1 small (Shortridge) Attacks and Washington should be contracted for competitive reasons based on the attached Sagarins. The programs are simply not competitive, and given the cost cutting trends at IPS, the right thing to do financially for the district in this case is to contract. http://sagarin.com/sports/hsfsend.htm
  5. LC job opening

    The Hart interview would be interesting. I would particularly be interested in his explanation for leaving Warren Central. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2015/12/30/brownsburg-hires-former-warren-central-football-coach/78054262/
  6. LC job opening

    I would stay away from both. Able stepped down from big school football. Doubt he wants back in to the grind. Hart moves around too much. Id look closer at his son.
  7. I would like to see an older, experienced and successful head coach come in and take this position. Brad Smith had already had great career success and was well established when he came to Highland to take over in the 1996 season. Local candidates like Jeff Cain, Roy Richards, or even Kirk Kennedy should be considered, although Highland may be too soft for Kennedy's harsh style.

    https://247sports.com/Season/2018-Football/RecruitRankings?InstitutionGroup=highschool&State=IN You should also personally advise him to keep Kurt Ferentz and his staff out of our state!!! He is doing some serious damage to our in state college football programs with this recruiting prowess.

    Is Brohm making Indiana a priority in terms of recruiting?

    Agree. I'd like to see some upside, but not much there. Allen saved himself from disaster in the final 3 weeks of the season. But I think it just postpones the inevitable. Id almost prefer to see them completely ditch the pro style passing attack and install Indiana Mr Football Reese Taylor and run the Ben Davis offense. That would at least give IU some identity on offense and a recruiting philosophy for targeting specific needs.

    We've got some real smart asses on this board. I miss the old days.

    http://www.ourlads.com/ncaa-football-depth-charts/depth-chart/ohio-state/91533 I much prefer the collective size of this group of defensive backs. Receivers are getting bigger, not smaller. If we continue to put 5-9 DBs in our secondary, we will always be overmatched physically.
  13. 2017 Hoosiers

    Taylor is a special player. Have a feeling Allen has big plans in mind for him. Personally, I would like to see IU move away from the drop back passing attack and go to more of a read option approach, assuming they can find the right personnel. Its easier to coach and easier to find athletes for this offense. Texas is loaded with these types of players.

    Just what we need. Another 5'9" defensive back. LOL
