  1. Does Hank Orkis drive a GTO? Haha I don't see Coach O coming out of retirement anytime soon. Brett Lambert and Evan Howard are both on the staff this season. Coach Lambert is a former Bluejay player/coach and Coach Howard is a former player. Not sure if there is a new defensive coordinator or not. Time will tell.
  2. Way too close to home

    I don’t pay much attention to the news. Have all of these school shooters been Trump supporters? Were there ever school shootings before Trump was President?
  3. Amen! I agree. In my experience those coaches are usually insecure jerks.
  4. One thing is for sure, this would be a very entertaining seminar. I'm not sure about the usefulness, but definitely entertaining. Sign me up.
  5. A debate that can't be won and probably shouldn't be part of a high school football forum. We will all see how important the Mueller investigation is soon. It could bring some big news when it's all said and done, but I'm guessing it's nothing more than a little bit of smoke without the fire that some expect. We'll all see soon. Your opinion on the tax break is obviously different than mine, but your brief explanation doesn't prove that you have your facts straight and that mine are wrong. I don't agree that your comment is correct By the way, I agree with you that the line between coaches and players has become increasingly thin. Social media, family structures, and parents making excuses for their kids, even when their kids are in the wrong, are major reasons for this.
  6. Typical weak response that you would normally find on a CNN/MSNBC forum. A liberal response based on half truths and false accusations. Instead of finding solutions to problems let's label every conservative or voter for our current President as racist, sexist, or ignorant. No solutions just mud-slinging. I don't agree with DrivenT that this ridiculous fight has anything to do with the "bro culture" that we hear so much about. However, I'm also not going to blame all of the ills of society on Our President. Ask people in the military if they like Our President. Has anyone paid attention to the stock market over the past year. I'm personally looking forward to a tax decrease next month. We need free thinkers in this country and not sheep who take CNN/Fox News/MSNBC for their so-called expert opinions.
  7. Somebody might want to let CNN know about the 5 W's...
  8. HNAC Week 3

    No problem. That would be my first choice for a place to eat in North Judson.
  9. HNAC Week 3

    Route 10 Bar & Grill
  10. HNAC WEEK 4 PREDICTIONS

    That night really spearheaded the start of the downfall of the Kirk Kennedy era at North Judson. If anything crazy could happen that season, it did. If a lesson could be taken away from that game it would be to not count your chickens until they're hatched. The Bluejays thought they were going to roll through Starke County that night, which they probably should have, but after losing their best defensive and best offensive players early in the game, it became a dogfight. Rest assured, Coach White and the troops will not be taking the Redskins lightly. Coach J. Hendryx, M. Hendryx, and D. Mcgowen are too good of coaches to take a victory at Knox for granted.
  11. New HNAC talk

    Well said and very true. NJ hasn't been in a conference since 1998 and their enrollment has dropped significantly over that time period. 15 years ago this might have been a bad fit for NJ, but it is a good fit today. I see some great opportunities in this conference for the Bluejays if they put in the work and effort that they are capable of giving.
  12. Great, and unfortunately, very accurate post for quite a few schools. Instead of teaching perseverance, instilling discipline, and being a positive role-model, there are way to many parents that enable their children by making excuses and putting the blame solely on the coaches. When little Johnny comes home complaining about the coaches, instead of looking into the possibility of there being two or more sides to the situation, some parents automatically blame/attack the coaches. Coaching is a profession that has become less-and-less desirable because of the negative influence that parents and the community sometimes provide. If your community isn't like this then you are very lucky. If it is, then it can be like a cancer that can quickly consume the body (school). I don't know any specific details about the Clinton Prairie situation, but I have seen this problem at quite a few schools over the years.
  13. Fair enough. I give Mannering enough credit that I think Cass would beat Whiting by a couple of TDs. Like you, it's just an opinion. It has been said many times before, but Whiting's schedule is HORRIBLE! Honestly, I think CC would have 42 by halftime against Whiting. As for Winamac vs. Pioneer. I say flip a coin because this game could go either way. I might have to put the long johns on and head over to Winamac for this battle.
  14. Lowell @ New Prairie

    I agree that Russ is doing primarily the same stuff and that the film reveals that. However, game-planning what you find off of the film, delivering the game plan effectively to the kids, and carrying out the game plan (with adjustments) during a game are all different talents. Stewart was able to effectively do all of those things more times than not. Maybe Lowell will be able to excel at all phases on Friday. However, that hasn't been proven in a major game since Kennedy, Stewart, and even Kiechle left. By the way, nice Granny Smith/Fuji apple example. That might be a more accurate analogy.
