  1. I saw that in the recent EVSC hires.
  2. I haven't seen or heard much of anything about North. Saw they were at ISU team camp this week, but nothing else. QB is a great kid. Should return a decent RB. Struggled last year but might be able to snag another W or 2 this year.
  3. School Fight Songs

    That's pretty cool...
  4. School Fight Songs

    In the SIAC, 6 schools use Big10 school songs (but not IU or PU). Memorial uses Notre Dame. Castle has its own original.
  5. I would agree with you, Greyhound, that offensively there is nobody in the Big 8 or PAC (or SIAC) with the speed and athletic ability of Torjon Evans. I never saw Trejon on O, but he obviously has a wealth of talent too. I don't know anything about Princeton, but what made Central so tough was the talent all over - the QB could throw it, the WRs could catch it, the OL was very good, so you couldn't just load the box and try to stop Evans. If Princeton has some complimentary players (and the Evans brothers stick around) they will make a big jump. If they don't and struggle, I could see things imploding. I also agree that Central could very well be better than last year. They have some holes to fill, but return a lot of very solid players and have a lot of talent in the program overall. The big ? for me is whether the new coach will instill some discipline, which hasn't seemed to be a priority in recent years.
  6. I’ve seen him. He’ll be a very good player.
  7. Memorial had a great day at the Colts 7 on 7 today in Westfield going 7-0 to bring home the title. Defeated Paoli, Brebeuf, Ritter, Scecina, East Central, Westfield and Brownsburg.
  8. Coach Fitz is pretty awesome. My son was there for a the specialist showcase camp and I inadvertently wore an ND t-shirt. He walked by, stopped, told me I needed a new shirt and had a manager kid go get me a Northwestern shirt on the spot. It was pretty funny. I still have the ND shirt though....
  9. Heck, I'm just glad we can finally talk football or anything related to football again..
  10. Dang, that's a lot. Didn't I see somewhere they are leaving the Big 8?
  11. IMO, the talent level of GS - EM was nearly equal in 2012, 2013, 2016 & 2017 (in 2013 and 2016 injured QBs had big impact). GS was clearly superior in 2014. That is a product of families that have to make huge financial sacrifices to send their kids there. The sacrifice breeds accountability. My kids know I'm not paying $6,000 for Cs (or Bs for that matter). The Castle comment is interesting. If you're a parent of a frosh swimmer, weigh your choices.....Castle is free and has a pool...Memorial is $6,000 (even more if you're not Catholic) and you have to drive across town to USI everyday for practice after school. Where is the advantage? Or, I'm a parent who realizes weight training is vital to athletic success. I look at Castle's weight room (or GS's...) and then Memorial's, which is about the size of a college wrestling mat. And, oh by the way, you have to take 8 semesters of Theology so your elective options for weight training class are limited to 2 semesters. That is no advantage... Or, my kid isn't Catholic and has to take 8 rigorous semesters of what? No advantage there. Memorial's enrollment has dropped by over 120 students in the last five years, mostly because many people simply can't (or won't) make the financial sacrifice when free options exist with more and better facilities and more academic diversity. Even with the athletic success of this year (11 of 19 varsity sports represented at state) we are not seeing a throng of non-feeder school kids wanting in. In fact, the enrollment was higher when we weren't having great athletic success in the major sports. If there was a huge advantage the place would be full. We had vouchers and all that back in 2012 and 2013 too.... One GS parent tweeted last winter that a parent from MD (I believe) said something to the effect of "GS has what we have, but we have to pay a lot of money for it." I disagree somewhat, because faith is a core value that can't be a part of academic instruction at a public school, but I get the point - Like MD and Memorial, GS has a rock solid community, great kids, coaches & teachers, plus top notch facilities. BUT, I can definitely understand how people on the outside might see things differently. It just depends on your perspective...
  12. LOL. Moving on... Does anyone have any insight about Jasper for the 2018 season?
