  1. DAWGs Half Dozen

    Weren't you member #1 of The Toolshed bro?
  2. DAWGs Half Dozen

    Would be interesting. Ultimately determined by end result if you ask me.
  3. DAWGs Half Dozen

    Have a new vested interest in the Milan program so I wish them nothing but the best. A competitive schedule improves everyone. Still got my number? I figured you would be on Roncalli sidelines. Slide in my DM's if you want to catch a game sometime.
  4. DAWGs Half Dozen

    1.) As I enter into another year of time spent mostly away from TGD and high school football in general. The last few weeks of activity to the forum has almost in short, rejuvenated a passion that was slightly… lost. I was thinking about this. How did this happen? Is this from the new generation of the forum not having an appeal? Is this due to moving away from a program you were apart of that’s altered? I challenged myself to find which one is the correct answer. Coming around here and recognizing hardly anyone who posts it is difficult to have an appreciation for their work and time they put into their thoughts and harder to enjoy the arguments and the laughs that presented themselves. Ahhh, indeed they were the glory days. Just sitting back, trying to recapture. I chose to go the Carmel / North Central game last week. The result was about expected and I did not really have a preference in the result. Friday nights never get old. Let’s go home to Batesville which has not truly been my home in about 8 years. I don’t know this coach. I don’t know this system. I don’t know these players. I don’t really even know this program. This was the same as the Carmel game with more of a small town feel and a few close friends. Then it hit me. The answer is easy. Simply put… both are correct. I was a lost DAWG… Until. 2.) Last week I loaded up TGD and saw it. “DT’s Week 5 Upset Special – North Central over CG.” I saw the score and said humbly, “it’s nice to see DT back.” Not that I had a say in allowing this ;)... I will give credit where credit is deserved. DT really brings out the best in conversation and I personally cannot wait to see the reaction to his first DD in about 10 years. I would generally hope time heals all wounds and egos – perhaps to see 12 of his thoughts from the years away compared to the “current events” of IHSFB. Who’s coming next? That hack Jim Rome? 3.) I also want to personally give a thank you to the 2007 Gridiron Digest Most Valuable Poster, THE TW… and Coach Nowlin who appeared to have kept the spirit of the forum alive. This is not a “quick filler” as much as highlighting a well deserved number for you both. My appreciation is there. REAL recognize REAL. BTW – One could assume the lady judge from the GGG/Canelo fight was also the person who tallied up the 2007 “MVP” votes. It all makes perfect sense. 4.) Recently stumbled across a video of a post game speech by Ben Davis head coach Mike Kirschner after the Warren Central game with a message I would describe as extremely powerful. As an adult now – I hope these kids were and are able to take this message and use this to take the right paths in life. Really important to note here this is all putting the kids first. For anyone curious here is a link to the full post game speech 5.) From one powerful message to another. I couldn’t help but have to take a step back recently and think about a Cleveland Indians baseball team who won 22 straight Major League Baseball games. My thought process as an Indians fan in short is “this is meaningless unless they win the World Series.” While I do believe that to an extent, I cannot help but take a breath and understand no matter what happens… it was history. 6.) This thought process takes me back a few years. If I recall correctly it was after the 2004 season where Heritage Hills lost to Andrean in the State Championship. My good buddy HHPatriot04 made a post about celebrating the accomplishment that was a terrific season and something I would hope those guys involved are proud of. An old Chatard jabroni champ7 chimed in with his personal belief. “Life is determined by the amount of state championships you have.” I'm not sure he physically was apart of any. In most cases I would go for 12 but I’m choosing to hold onto some ammo for next time while also not wanting to get too off topic. I realize Coach Nowlin might get a little too jelly of the DAWG and relegate this thread to his own personal playground, the Out Of Bounds forum, or as I like to remember. The Gridiron Nation. I am extremely proud to have created this alongside TA and am even more delighted to have given Muda a place he finally feels comfortable enough to come out – with his political views. Until next time which I hope to be soon - Always and forever – your favorite posters favorite poster. -DAWG
  5. Is that why you twisted his ankle?
  6. Roncalli Head Coach Opening

    Congrats to "The Hurricane" on a great career.
  7. Batesville Football

    Not really a surprise by any means. My understanding is a lot of applicants looked as the job as a 2-4 year stepping stone to bigger programs either around the area (OH) etc.. One of key questions during process was future plans and level of comfort in area. Younger guy with a great opportunity in a great community. Will be interesting to see changes in offensive/defensive philosophy. Maybe no more early morning headaches for Stink Town Clown from all the "spinning"... at least from the film.
  8. Batesville Football

    Heard an announcement should be made this week.
  9. Batesville Football

    Probably a few weeks before an announcement.
  10. http://www.foxsports.com/college-football/story/alabama-crimson-tide-wr-gehrig-dieter-star-transfer-mac-bowling-green-021316 Huge move for Indiana and I'm sure lots of hard work. Congrats to Gehrig and family. Tough road to get that point. Two years of eligibility.
  11. I'd rather have an 8-12 year career and struggle with the higher % of disease and make millions than tear my leg up and never be the same player in said career because some jabroni was "looking out for me."
  12. Odell Beckham Jr. deserves suspension, huge fine

    It's 50/50... we criticize the refs for being to flag happy and then we criticize them for when we don't make the calls? While I agree it should've been a "no more" situation after the first scuffle I'm sure the group of refs logic was we'll call the game how it should be called any extra curricular stuff can be handled by the league. I don't blame the refs for anything other than letting it happen consistently.
  13. Batesville Football

    It's possible - but I don't think it's a good fit.
  14. Batesville Football

    A lot of great memories circling around in the last 24 hours with myself and a few former players including one that includes getting chewed out in front of a class for posting something that didn't represent Batesville Football how it should be on this forum. I appreciate what the entire group of coaches have done for me personally specifically Coach Heppner & Coach Nobbe who not a lot of people know - but I am positive is (was) one of the best JV Head coaches in the state. Big loss for the school from a coaching standpoint. As far as candidates I'm not sure they already have a guy in place as was the case with the Basketball program a few years back. It will be interesting to see if they can bring in someone or keep someone who the community will stand behind which is always a tough thing to do in Batesville.
