  1. Looking at the state of Texas, where qualifying is a WHOLE bunch tougher, there are similar types of "blowout" games. As a comparison ... in Texas 4A ball last season, 19 of 64 first round games ended in differentials of 35 points or more ... just under 30%. Second round ended up with 8 of 32 games, or 25%, with 35 or more differential. 3rd round only had 1 in 16, but 4th round ended up with 2 of 8 ... or 25% and 5th round was 1 in 4 ... or 25%. All told, there were 31 out of 126 games in 4A post-season that were decided by 35 or more points ... or an overall post season rate of 24.6%. By contrast, Indiana's all-in format produced roughly 31.7% "blowouts" across 63 4A post-season games. Note that, to qualify for post season in Texas 4A, you have to be one of the top four finishing teams in your district. Most districts are 8-10 teams in Texas ball. If roughly 25% is what the top 40-50% do to each other, I suspect that Texas "blowout" rates would be bigger than Indiana's if you turned the top 40-50% loose on the bottom 50-60% ... and my guess is that quality of Texas ball would outweigh Indiana ball in most eyes.
  2. I expect that young Mr. Schoonveld is happy that CP isn't throwing in the towel.
  3. Sectional scores

    Don't know about the rest, but definitely a big old chunk. The following picture was provided courtesy of @Coach Nowlin for RCHS when they played WL at LOS earlier in the season. If you look closely, you can see the RCHS bus parked behind #70.
  4. Sectional scores

    Well, it was spotty early on ... just like the HH game, LCC gave up a long-pass score with under 30 seconds to go in the half to give TC a TD lead. Came out with a purpose after the half. I think part of it was just it took a whole half to get back into the feel of the old LCC ... did pretty good though shaking off nine games in a half. They did a much better job keying on TC's QB, who was fast as lightning, and were better able to contain him. The game tempo was much quicker, the guys had some swagger, they were much more easily excitable, fans were even more boisterous ... even some of the more qualitative items seemed to be back ... blue on blue uniforms, the "CC" on the helmets ... and even the end of game "We love, football ..." Holding on to the ball for the better part of the entire 3rd quarter and into the 4th with a sustained offensive attack also doesn't hurt your defense any either. Still got to get through a bunch of adversity just to get out of the sectional, but there was certainly some charge in the air last night that seemed to indicate that the call to bring out the dead, won't get LCC on the cart easily.
  5. Sectional scores

    LCC 35 - Tri-County 28 --- final LCC puts up 21 points in the second half after trailing TC 21-14 at half. TC gets a last-minute TD after a series of end-of-game penalties. with its first win under interim Head Coach Jeff Onken. Edit: I believe that LCC's defense may have only allowed TC 9-10 plays in the second half until the last drive.
  6. Hoosier Conference 2017

    You mean @Coach Nowlin and crew haven't been taking a knee for the last hour? Lord, I apologize for that.
  7. See ... the branding is working perfectly. There'll now be wolf sightings in the area along with the stories of the elusive silver wolf, the scary wolf howls that campers will swear that they hear, the stories of the wolf with a hook for a paw ... might even get Michael J. Fox to come in and do a celebrity appearance as Teen Wolf too. The mystique around the name begins!
  8. We'll see how it plays out on grass. LCC has the third worst record of the eight teams in its sectional, but ends up holding the 3rd place ranking in its sectional while sporting a 2-7 record. It plays the 4th rated team, Tri County, who is sitting at 8-1. We'll get to see how that grinder HC schedule sets up the Knights in the tourney.
  9. Hoosier Conference 2017

    He comes to the LCC-Guerin game ... sits one half on one side and the other half on the other side to watch two sons of the diocese play. Now that there's funny. I don't care who you are.
  10. Hoosier Conference Pick 'Em Sectional Round 1

    1 Point Games Benton Central @ West Lafayette - Hopefully the West Lafayette game won't put a damper on BC's season. Good progress seen this season, despite their record; culminating in a nice statement game last week. Rensselaer @ Taylor – All Bombers in this one. Tipton @ North Putnam – Tipton continues to get better. Expect a minimum of a regional title out of these guys. 2 Point Games Western @ Yorktown – The Russkies go on the road, infiltrate Yorktown, and tip the fate of the first sectional game outcome. Calumet @ Twin Lakes – Taking the Indians at home so as not to break the all HC picks so far. Also, they have two lakes, not just one. Hamilton Heights @ North Montgomery – Neither team has won a game at home. That’s a strike against the Mounties. Heights finds a way to win again on the road. Lewis Cass @ Rochester – The Kings have it their way … extra mustard on this one. 3 Point Games Blackford @ Northwestern – Can you say PO’d? I knew that you could. Wildcats take out their frustrations on Blackford keeping the HC streak alive. Attica @ North Vermillion – This is a tough one. Pretty evenly matched, but given NV’s tight game with FC last week, the really close loss to Attica, the fact that it’s hard to win a pair in a season against the same team when evenly matched, and the fact that this one is at NV, I’m taking the Falcons in a game decided by a field goal or less. Tri-County @ Lafayette Central Catholic – Not sure if Thin Lizzy or Aerosmith applies here … might just be coincidence with Chil’s rebranding efforts, but the Knights are back with new leadership and, hopefully, the return of the full playbook arsenal along with possibly a new face. In town, in the saddle, or ribs, it’ll be nice to see … and on that beautiful field no less. The HC sectional streak stays intact.
  11. Hoosier Conference 2017

    It's not someone that the regular person on the street would think of first, but those who know LCC well and have coached against them would probably pick up in a heartbeat.
  12. Hoosier Conference 2017

    For LCC football players, probably as revered as the Pope.
  13. Hoosier Conference 2017

    Certainly some buzz in the air. Passed by one of the varsity players after practice yesterday and asked him how it's going ... his response was "state, baby." Uphill climb for sure with the recent regular season looming and Pioneer, among others, standing in the way, but was good to hear the enthusiasm/confidence in his voice. Probably didn't hurt that they had a special visitor to the team yesterday either ... to remind them where they come from, who they are, and who's still in their corner.
  14. Definitely enjoyed again this year. Put me down for 1A next season.
