  1. If the property is prone to flooding the Elkhart schools need to relocate their facilities to drier ground.
  2. Good thing the school is going to close and consolidate with Memorial. Happened to the Brickie Bowl all the time...
  3. Hanover Central is still very much a fledgling program, I've attended a youth football game at Hanover Central High School a few years back their facility was pretty much what you would find a a middle school (no visitors stands, home and visiting sides in the stands was separated by a press box, no restroom facilities inside the stadium, attendees had to exit the gate and use the restrooms inside the school building gymnasium area and then reenter the gate and the concession stand was operated out of a portable storage shed. The game was so lopsided in the visiting teams favor that it had to be called at halftime. The facilities at Highland are much more established.
  4. Pete Koulianous is leaving Hanover Central and taking over at Highland. Sounds like a good move as Highland is a much more established program. http://www.nwitimes.com/sports/high-school/football/highland-picks-hanover-central-s-pete-koulianos-as-new-football/article_cbd67f61-84e5-5742-b1a3-fdf3abcba463.html
  5. Kokomo Open

    Some interesting football notes from teams that Michigan City has ran into over the last couple of years. -Valpo's football program's coaching mess. -Kokomo's coach just resigned -Mishawaka's coach just quit and took the job at Warsaw.
  6. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:fMzWxO5KTWAJ:www.inkfreenews.com/2018/02/12/warsaw-tabs-curtis-to-guide-football-program/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us Per the Ink Free News: Hope Tiger fans enjoy wishbone option football.
  7. I agree with bobref. Valpo started playing football in 1929 and Dave Coyle was only the 6th head coach in program history now it looks like it will become another program that cycles through not only a new head coach but an entirely new coaching regime every 4 or 5 seasons.
  8. That incident is still fresh in people's minds now they have coach Buzz Cut coming in posting signs around the school that read “Execute with violent precision” .
  9. [Crime & courts on NBCNews.com Search Five teenagers slashed at Indiana high school Freshman student held in knife attack on classmates Below: x Jump to discuss Loading comments... discuss related Share8 Advertise Tasos Katopodis / Getty Images Parents picks up their children after the knife attacks Wednesday. updated 11/24/2004 5:06:57 PM ET Print Font: + - VALPARAISO, Ind. — A student carrying two hidden knives slashed five classmates Wednesday morning as they watched a videotape in Spanish class, authorities said. Eight students at Valparaiso High School were taken to the hospital, including the accused attacker, identified as a 15-year-old freshman, police Chief Michael Brickner said. All but one of those injured were released by Wednesday afternoon, he said. Five suffered cuts, and the others complained of pain from other injuries, authorities said. Authorities released no information about a possible motive for the attack, which happened as classes were starting about 8 a.m. at the school about 20 miles southeast of Gary. Students described a struggle in a hallway and said they saw blood on the floor. “The kid, after he stabbed them, he ran out of the room, and a bunch of teachers tackled him,” said Clark Hogan, a sophomore. “I saw the lady kick the knife down the hallway. She kicked it against the wall.” Brickner said that one of the knives was a machete and that the other was a serrated knife. The youth accused in the attack remained in custody. School Superintendent Michael Benway said that the school did not have metal detectors but that school staffers and volunteers monitored the two doors through which the school’s 2,000 students entered the building Brickner said that when police officers arrived, school administrators were holding the suspect, an A-B student who started in the Valparaiso school system this year. The uninjured students were allowed to leave school about 3½ hours after the attack. Until then, they said, they were kept locked in their classrooms. “The teachers wouldn’t tell us what was going on,” said one of the students, Danielle Boer. “We were scared.” Jeni Bell, a spokeswoman for Porter Memorial Hospital, said that some students suffered severe cuts and that one suffered a hip injury. She said the injuries were not life-threatening.
  10. Maybe Mueller was not aware of the Valparaiso High School student Machete attack in 2004. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/6575855/ns/us_news-crime_and_courts/t/five-teenagers-slashed-indiana-high-school/
  11. Never heard the guy answer what is it going to take for Valpo to beat Penn in the sectionals and for the Vikings to get deep in the tournament and compete with the Carmel's, Ben Davis, Warren Central's, Cernter Groves, Avon's and Lawerance North's of the world.
  12. I believe Lake Station is the only 1A school in region 1 (1A sectional 41).
  13. When is the state coaches clinic/meeting going to be held which selects the 2018 North/South All Star teams players and what is the date, time and location for the 2018 N/S/ All-Star game? I am sure that at least one of our three Michigan City players will be on the roster along with coach Maurek.
  14. This legislation only targets "tackle football": Actually by its definition section, it affects only American football. So rugby or even Canadian football would be unaffected. Actually since it doesn't define "American football" further, you could just say your proprietary version of football isn't American football. It also only affects only an "organized entity", which seems to mean if you don't have a separate bank account but just fund everything personally, you can offer American tackle football to kids even under this legislation. Wait a minute, just noticed this: The act is written as a prohibiti0n on a child's participating in such games or practices, & it provides no penalties for violating it! The organization doing it is not affected. This bill is purely symbolic. This bill is almost similar to the recently repealed Cook County penny an ounce sweetened beverage tax which proponents claimed was for youth health and safety reasons:
  15. I believe the Region I coaches will have their meeting this weekend. I believe last year it was the weekend of the pro bowl. National letter of intent day signing day is just 5 days away.
