  3. D3 College Cancels Remainder of season

    I don't understand Butler, I never have and I never will. Do you have any data to back this up or is it just an assumption? The St. Joe thing I think has been covered.
  4. Rating question

    We have never been told how a coach votes. After the season we have in the past got a list of schools who voted. All we can see right now is our vote average, it's just a number that doesn't really mean anything without the rest of the scores.
  5. Could Be The End Of A Program

    I'm not showing up to any Chatard game until: 1. They pay me to attend in an official type capacity. 2. @Lysander entices me with some exotic elixir.
  6. Could Be The End Of A Program

    So agreeing with this particular rule make you a sheep....interesting. 1. Have you polled the principals? 2. Have you presented this or ANY proposal to the IFCA, IIAAA, IHSAA? 3. Is your plan written down some place? 4. What is the goal of this plan? Make the tournament more exciting? 5. What does this plan cost? How much gained revenue for the schools by adopting your plan? How much revenue gained by the IHSAA? 6. Barbershop or Internet forum we're still just a bunch of guys loafing.
  7. Could Be The End Of A Program

    This is like the guys at the barber shop, you know the ones who have all the answers to the world's problems, unfortunately no one knows because they're just a bunch of guys loafing at the barbershop.
  8. Could Be The End Of A Program

    No, I'm not talking about the cluster system that was used in 83 and 84. I'm talking about the playoff system. I never said it was the only way to determine qualifiers, I'm merely stating that's what happened when we had a qualifying playoff system. 73-82 Used a qualifying playoff system based on points earned and districts. 3 classes. Teams were penalized for playing smaller class schools. 83-84 Cluster system where you basically played your sectional during the regular season. 4 Classes. 85-current All in tournament format, 5th class added. 6th class added in 2013 Delusion or not, perhaps you should understand the past a little before you start planning for the future.
  9. Could Be The End Of A Program

    lol....sure I realize your friend at work said their kid was getting a ride. As to the rest of it, I never said anything about anyone getting a participation trophy. And yet undefeated teams were left out of the old play off system. The tournament is set to start Friday night culminating on Thanksgiving weekend. Lets enjoy the tournament, then we have ALL WINTER to rehash this crap again this year.
  10. Could Be The End Of A Program

    I would guess that most of the people talking about our "flawed" system, haven't been around long enough to remember teams going 10-0 and not making the playoffs. This is HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL, the be all end all measuring stick isn't necessarily wins and losses.
  11. Rating question

    Yes, I believe crew chiefs only. You should be able to see your individual portion.
  12. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Clarksville was a much different school during their tenures. I believe Glesing was in the building at Clarksville, Cooley was not. I seem to remember you questioning Glesing's competency a couple of years ago at the end of the season. Coaches at the high school level are fair game I suppose, but this is a bush league post in my opinion.
  13. Mark is a LEGEND! He's quite a bit older than me, but grew up in the hood, the stories are still classic!
  14. Funny you would mention the Hustler and Pat McAfee. Newly formed local brewery, Seymour Brewing Company https://www.facebook.com/The-Seymour-Brewing-Company-1609705355737033/ , has brewed a Hibiscus Wheat, simply called "the Hustler" after none other than Seymour's own Hustler Rip Rogers. Rip gave his blessing to the name, and a date is trying to be agreed to for the tapping party. Rip is coming and he wants to be bring Pat McAfee with him. I can't wait!
  15. Agreed, if the IFCA wants a mercy rule, all they have to do is tell the IHSAA what they want.
