  1. That suggests a net loss in existing kids or in the incoming freshman class since the numbers from last year showed roughly 208 with the 8th grade class, this year's 9th grade class, at around 57. If the high school has less than 200 now, that's a net drop of over 12% from last year.
  2. https://compass.doe.in.gov/dashboard/enrollment.aspx?type=school&id=9137 Assuming a 50/50 split, last year, they would have had the following: 9th - 28.5 10th - 27.5 11th - 27 12th - 21 They've had girls that have played in their youth football program, but I'm not sure if any have/will continue through to the high school level.

    Plenary indulgences?
  4. I would too. My son's first sport was soccer when he was roughly four or five years old. He switched over to football when he was in 3rd grade and played football over soccer for the last four seasons. We only let our kids play one sport at a time so that they aren't robbing Peter to pay Paul and dropping the ball on one or both teams. This season, in 7th grade, he's going back to soccer instead of football, although when he gets the chance, he comes out and helps with coaching youth football. As to your assertion that teams with basketball possibly getting more focus, does basketball get that much negative impact from soccer? Would switching soccer in the spring possibly have a similar impact on baseball if it has a negative impact on basketball?
  5. Tricky Penalty Enforcement

    Is it no beanbag because it's going to be a previous spot foul which is already defined by the box, thus no need for the beanbag which may actually add confusion to the call?
  6. Aren't Jeff and West Lafayette both considered the "city" schools? Harrison and McCutcheon are the "county" schools.
  7. My guess is that some knowledge of the coaching staff comes in to play ... for example, the letter-picking acumen of the coaching staff.
  8. Mayor Dennis mentioned Adams being a new QB, but he saw plenty action last season throwing for over 78% completion over 11 games including playing against Crete-Monee. He might be new as a starter, but I think Mr. Adams will be fine.
  9. Hoosier Conference Pick 'Em

  10. I think with Hood in the backfield, Jeff will have no options other than to try to blunt his impact early. WL will need to capitalize on this by picking up early passing TDs when/if Jeff exposes itself. The game is going to come down to Jeff's line size vs. WL line speed. It will look like WL's outings against Crete-Monee. If WL's DLine can get pressure, it will give some relief to their secondary. Last year, Crete-Monee exploited WL's secondary with stop-and-go routes for some long balls. If the WL line can get penetration this time around, those routes become less productive. Should be a good game. If WL's DLine can get the pressure and blunt the long ball against its safeties, I think WL wins this one. If Jeff can keep Hood to less than 100, then Jeff wins.
  11. West Lafayette's kryptonite is playing Lafayette-area schools when both are undefeated: 38-20 to LCC in 2015 45-37 to McCutcheon in 2014 27-26 (OT) to LCC in 2013 21-14 to LCC in 2011 22-13 to Harrison in 2004 28-17 to Harrison in 2003 36-6 to Harrison in 2002 Edit: Gotta go back to 2001 when West Lafayette beat Harrison 29-22 and 2000 when they beat LCC 33-30 in the first games out of the gate.
  12. I didn't see LCC last night, but folks who did said, while there's lots to work on, there's also lots to be excited about. There's definitely a pep in the step during practice. With the new tennis courts relocating the youth teams to right next door to the varsity practice field, it's been fun watching them practice.
  13. Are we starting up next week after the scrimmages and jamborees?
