  1. What's Sheridan looking like?
  2. Fairfield is a good job for a young coach looking build a resume.
  3. Noblesville hires new HC

    Look for Nobelsville to take the next step in the competitive 6A. What a great hire in Roden, who has taken East Central to the top of the SE heap.
  4. It was inevitable. I think It should just be semistate and state. i would think additional revenue would be needed extra camera work which could be an issue for small programs.
  5. Any thoughts on the NCC and KV this year?

    It was 7-6. after one. Then they returned the ensuing kickoff and rattled off 44 straight for the final. To be fair we were coming off an 0-10 season and Renssy had a nice season for their standards not terrific like all Meeks teams it seems like.
  6. Any thoughts on the NCC and KV this year?

    But coach just for fun you would agree the matchups i suggested would be pretty good right? Also let's not let coach Nowlin get away with his shameless plug of a certain Rensselaer disciple at a certain Laffy school that happened to play yours truly in 2002 thrashing at FJF 51-6 final score. Busted kind sir...
  7. Well New Pal is probably the prohibitive favorite now but the 5A north but what does Zionsville bring back? Being a five team sectional New Pal could still have to play three games and with depth issues another good Zionsville team with a relatively easy semifinal could present at least a challenge in the title game especially if the Eagles play at home. That being said I was simply playing devils advocate. Coach Ralph has shown the ability to get his teams prepared to simply embarrass teams if they can't keep up.
  8. I can appreciate the upgrades for those who are disabled being bound to a wheelchair myself...a big thumbs up to HH for complying with ADA guidelines
  9. Dwenger defends coaching hire

    I'm just surprised he would get the nod with that incident having happened just a few years ago, with Dwenger being such a great program you'd think they'd be in a position to hire a terrific coach without that baggage. That being said I'm all about second chances. If something like this would surface again I would imagine that would likely end his coaching career so he will finish his career essentially being on probation.
  10. I hope Kiser keeps his talents in state at one of the big 10 schools, but he would likely be starting quite a bit earlier if he joins a MAC school such as Ball State. Duke is a pretty cool opportunity though.
  11. Any thoughts on the NCC and KV this year?

    Well played sir. Maybe we should have an NCC challenge? Kokomo v Munster Lafayette Jeff vs Lowell Harrison vs Andrean Muncie Central vs KV McCutcheon vs Hobart Logansport vs Highland Games on Saturday to allow for appropriate travel
  12. 6A Football

    I know they aren't in any great positions but looking at the 6A Duneland squads I wanted to do a quick early capsule. Here's Sectional 1...admittedly the easiest sectional in the state and it really isn't close. Sectional 2 is probably the second worst because Warsaw, Valpo, and a Chesterton all fall out of the top 20. That means seven of the lowest rated 12 teams comprise those two sectionals along with Penn of course. Lake Central Last Season 2-8, Sagarin - 41.65 The Blue Indians enter the second full season for coach Tony Bartolomeo, and with the lowest Sag rating in 6A there is really no place to go but up. This is the largest school in the Duneland so you would think if they can keep some continuity on the coaching staff they can get this team back to competing for titles as the were just a few years ago. LC represents the DAC well in most others sports and the dearth of athletes should if nothing else help propel this team to get back on track next season. Merrillville 2017 record - 1-9, Sag - 49.68 Merrillville has the unfortunate distinction as the second worse Sag rating in 6A, finishing just a couple points below FW Northrop and Jeffersonville. It shocks this region fan to reflect and see a Merrillville football team with just one win for the season. That's the second straight losing season for the Pirates after having just 2 losing seasons from 1973-2015. That's quite a blow for a team with that kind of tradition, and one has to think Coach Brad Seiss entering his fourth season with a record of 26-37 is probably under pressure to take some strides back to at least being competitive in the DAC. The Pirates struggled with injuries in 2017, but with QB Cameron Wright entering his senior season as the presumptive starter the experienced signal caller should help this team with at least 2-4 more games...however I don't expect it will be enough to win Sectional 1. However favorites Portage and Crown Point have some holes to fill. Portage 2017 record - 5-6 Sag - 63.73 Four teams in 6A outside of Duneland schools own worse Sag Ratings (Jeffersonville, FW Northrop, Warsaw, and Perry Meridian) which doesn't scream success for many schools. But Portage had really fallen on hard times before the arrival of Darren Rodriguez via Culver Community, with the Red Indians. In addition to having just one winning season in the six prior to Rodriguez, the Indians won just one game apiece in the final two years of those six. So 5-6 was certainly a good step In the right direction. I believe this to be an important year for Rodriguez as we will get to see how his developmental skills have translated to a much bigger program, and that will start at QB with the graduation of star athlete Anthony Maceo. Zach Warchus will come into his junior year looking fill the shoes of Maceo after taking most of his Varsity snaps at RB. Senior Jacob Beehn is also listed at QB so he looks to be in the mix as well. Portage churns out quality backs often so not worried there. Optimism should be high here with Sectional 1 being so winnable and if they can get their line play to gel by regionals maybe give the mighty Kingsmen if nothing else at least a decent football game and keep the program on the rise. Crown Point 2017 record - 7-5 Sag - 65.67 Well being just one spot ahead of Portage and landing outside the top 20 of the class doesn't say a lot about being the best team according to Sagarin in sectional 1. However I think many factors play in their favor. Coach Enright enters his seventh season with a winning record (36-30) despite a tough 2015 campaign when the Bulldogs went 1-9. This is a school with ample resources and beautiful facilities, and an enrollment that benefits from some of the best youth programs and facilities in the area. I like the Bulldogs to take that next step and start to make more noise in challenging to make it past Penn.
  13. I was looking at the road Pioneer might take if they were to head back to state and noticed that sectional 42 (Pioneer sectional) had five teams with higher sagarin ratings than the best team from sectional 41.
  14. Any thoughts on the NCC and KV this year?

    I certainly agree that Boone would be a bit small for the conference in terms of football, but the program is quite new and they are equipped to handle the rigors of going up against those schools in many other sports. I mentioned Boone as a sort of package deal if they were to get Wheeler involved because those two schools enjoy a district boundary and a rich rivalry in most sports.
  15. Any thoughts on the NCC and KV this year?

    I would think now that Boone Grove has added football too that they are probably tied at the hip with their old Porter County Conference pals the Wheeler Bearcats.
