  1. I think this job may scare away some really good candidates. Expectations will continue to be extremely high, as they should...but it seems talent is relatively low compared with the expectations. This seems like a very difficult situation to walk into. Coach Coller has an impressive football resume, and he suddenly resigns prior to sectional?
  2. Hoosier Conference 2017

    Thoughts on Western offense - QB runs the ball 40 times per game, often into the mouth of the defense. At some point does this become too much to ask of a hs kid who will most likely be a div 1 baseball guy if he doesn't get broken down in football? Granted, he's a tough kid and physically can hold his own. I just can't imagine asking a hs kid to do this week in and week out without being concerned about the physical toll it is taking on his body. This is not a slam on the Western staff by any means. They physically kicked our butts - we knew Knep was running the ball right at us and not a thing we could do about it. Has anyone else seen an offense where 1 player is featured so heavily, getting 40+ touches per game?
  3. Hoosier Conference 2017

    Yes - Fred Armisen is a comedic genius - the show is very quirky and a little weird, much like Portland. He was fantastic on SNL as a major player - you just can't beat The Californians....Sturart, whhhhhhhaaaaat are youuuuuuu doing heeeeree???
  4. Hoosier Conference 2017

    Couldn't agree more. Tipton always has a well coached, talented, and physical team. I suppose when you are of LCC lineage, it's difficult to not look down at us lowly publics trying to keep our heads above water. :)
  5. Thank you for the reply. It was a good snap, holder caught with knee down, stood to make a scramble to throw and play was blown dead. The refs got it wrong, had no bearing on outcome of game, but wanted to know the rule for certain moving forward.

  7. Question for Bobref and other officials. Cass vs Heights on Friday. After Cass td, Cass attempts to run a fake PAT. The holder, in his position with knee down receives snap, stands up, and scrambles to the right to attempt to throw a pass. Play is blown dead and ruled as an illegal play. Since holders knee was down he cannot get up and move with ball. I was under the impression that the holder was the ONLY player that could have their knee down at time of possession and not be ruled down. Can someone please verify?

  9. 2012 Regional Lewis Cass vs Gary Andrean went 5 OT's with Andrean winning 67-66. Cass had many 2 way players who never came off the field. Playing 5 OT's at a high level was something special to witness.
  10. Very proud to say I coached with him, along with many other great people on the staff in Logan during his time there. Great coach, better man. http://www.southbendtribune.com/sports/high_school/football/britton-finds-perspective-for-hall-of-fame-career/article_8df2f0ed-7ac3-5e1e-adbd-9c920a5872ce.html
  11. Bowman Academy

    This is really embarrassing...how can adults let this kind of thing happen. Cmon man.
  12. Sorry to hear of his passing. You hit it on the head, we seldom appreciate the people in our lives as well as the time we have here.
  13. Helmet Visors

    Thanks fellas
  14. Can someone shed some light on this please? Are HS kids allowed to wear helmet visors during games? I was under the assumption they could, but said visor had to be clear. Is this the case? Thanks!
  15. 1A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

    Wowser, the fact that you know so much about another grown man's football stats (who is not a pro) is a tad on the creepy side if you ask me. "No wonder he lives through his sons football careers" translated from jealous phycho means - It's great to see a father who is willing to invest time and energy into developing his sons into champions.
