  1. in the IHSAA eligibility rules, it specifically states that switching from private to public or vice versa is not a grounds for immediately eligibility, even in the case of financial hardship.
  2. LCC has a new coach

    But upon researching the program via Hudl highlights, Nay's excitement to inherit a program known for its dominance of Class A over the last decade was hard to hide. "That wasn't a 4-8 team. The film does not lie. Every coach knows that," Nay said. "Looking at the results and getting introduced to the players through film, some things just didn't go their way at times, but I felt like they were in positions to win all but probably two of those football games last year." I don't see where that answer fits your proposed question LCCAlum?
  3. LCC has a new coach

    He says in article he felt like CC was in position to win all but 2 games last fall. I'd like to know which 2 he felt those were? Obviously, he must have fast forwarded through a few of those videos of other games.
  4. 2018 1A

    Next man up! Thats where the program is right now at this point in time. That will change in another year.
  5. Follow up article in local paper with a couple quotes showing the mindset of the Panthers just a few weeks removed from the state championship game. I guess the celebration/rest & recovery phase is over. Time to get back to work!!
  6. Pioneer runs both midline and inside/outside veer... depending on the DL alignment our QB has full command to check to the best play. So in general terms we'll say we are a Wing-T and a "midline/veer" team. Mike Johnson was strictly traditional Wing-T at Pioneer. Adam Berry uses the Wing-T as our base offense, and then has deviated with some other plays like midline/veer that take advantage of some defensive alignments WHILE expanding the role of our best players.
  7. Who said the Panthers are wearing black? But if that helps hide the ball then maybe they should!!
  8. Well, according to some team mom's out there, it's all about the jersey color. Pioneer wore white in 2014 and 2016 and lost both times. EG won the toss and took white this morning, so the Panthers will be dark jerseys. Mom's are saying Panthers will now win for sure. LOL For the record, the EG whites are pretty sick looking - no wonder they choose to wear them.
  9. The fire works were set off by a former Pioneer football player from the 90's who has a friend who happens to live across the street from the stadium. It was independently done, outside of the stadium and off the school property, so the IHSAA has no way to govern it. Further, obviously the city of Logansport has no rules against it, or the police would have surely went to the residence and seized the fireworks.
  10. I will set the over/under on total combined pass attempts at 12. This game might set a record for quickest state game ever.
  11. Many reasons why moved, and why this late. Big one is that the field conditions were bad after 3 straight home games, and 7 home out of last 9 games - trodden down like a hog lot and lots of grass ripped up in spots that had little of it- and only got worse after the all day rain Wednesday. Certainly not easy to move at the last minute, but credit the Pioneer Administration, the Logansport Administration, and the IHSAA for putting the players and quality of the game first. And the Pioneer Admin had to attempt to move it on top of a social media threat this morning causing local authorities to search students when arriving at school. So a busy Thursday morning for sure. Sounds like the relocation came at the expense of the PHS boosters losing out on the concessions, as I believe Logan will take those over now. But again, it was the right thing to do versus playing a mudfest game for the semi-state. Both teams and coaches have worked too hard to get this far for that. Again, kudos to the Pioneer Admin for stepping up and putting the players and the game above the complications of it all.
  12. Pioneer should get 13 guys on defense based on your 2 for 1 deal!
  13. I would bet heavily that the IHSAA doesn't ever initiate a venue change, but rather only gets involved when an AD requests one. I do wonder the liability of the home team's school corporation if a kid is hurt on what some would call an unplayable field?
  14. Hmmm. Not so sure these 2 teams are alike at all. I would say Pioneer has VERY good 1A speed. Pioneer threw 0 passes in entire sectional championship and MC ran only 2 times in 2nd half of regional championship. OL and DL line sizes are exact opposite between the 2. Pioneer has 2 FBs over 200 lbs in backfield and MC has 0. Pioneer has 3-4 offensive formations, MC has unlimited. Definitely gonna be one where who dictates the style of the game has the best chance to win.
  15. Panthers with their 4th straight home playoff game out of the 5. Big advantage not having 2 hour bus ride. Familiarity with the surface at The PIT also helps. Players know where the holes are and know what to expect as far as footing. With forecasted rain this week, this one could end up a mudfest. Panthers tournament experience from last year could be big advantage as well (3rd semi-state for seniors).
