    My thoughts too. . It just seems like the right thing to do. . imho. .
  2. SAC 2018

    .. Thank you for the link. . I will ask them personally next time I'm around a practice. .If He is in the building, I will try to talk to him. .
  3. SAC 2018

    . . Yes, I was one of those that said they needed to schedule a game or two outside the conference someone of similar caliber, but what I'm saying here on this thread is about at least finding an out of conference SCRIMMAGE opponent, instead of playing someone Snider and Homestead will see at least one more time (regular season) and probably twice (playoffs, especially if Snider petitions to stay in 6A. . I don't see why that should be such a hard thing to do as an administrative decision. .
  4. SAC 2018

    . .Being that Snider will play Homestead again in the regular season, then probably again in the 6A playoffs, they may have decided to not show much of anything really. . They seemed to have gotten out physicaled in the trenches.. and didn't show much depth in the offensive backfield either.. It was not what I've seen talent wise compared to what I've seen usually for many years.. They have a LOT of work to do. . I wish Snider would find an out of town team to scrimmage after this year, especially if they are contemplating applying to stay in 6A. . It's bad enough that they don't play anyone out of town during the regular season like all the other 6A teams around the state do, so why not at least find someone out of town for a scrimmage?
  5. SAC 2018

    Thank you for your response.. I do believe if we do what I mentioned, they will have a better chance of going further than Regionals in 6A if they were to petition for 6A, and be accepted.. As the Regional and Semi State are set up at this time, it will be a a good bet that Snider would be playing Penn in Semi State if they win our Regional.. There are a few Region area 6A schools that play Penn already in the regular season.. It would be nice to see our Ft Wayne area 6A schools, plus Snider, play top tier schools of 6A, and 5A from outside our area (similar to what Penn is doing now during the regular season) to have a chance to compete with Penn (or whoever wins their Regional), but first Snider (OR whoever our 6A Sectional Champion is) has to get past Regional (an Indianapolis area powerhouse).. It would also be nice exposure for Snider (or perhaps Homestead, possibly Carroll, and even Northrop, if they were to develop their natural talent) to play outside the area, including out of state opponents that are of similar caliber.. This needs to be done to have a better chance of competing against the Southern Semi State winner, which have been juggernauts in 6A .. The Northern Semi State teams need to do something like this to better prepare for 6A State Title.. IMHO. .
  6. . . That was very nice of that family to donate that turf practice field for Dwenger. . Would also be nice if others in the Dwenger and Concordia community find a way to turf Zollner Stadium. . Seeing Dwenger already has a turf practice /JV/Freshmen facility. . Concordia (all levels) and Dwenger Varsity share Zollner.. It would make sense that Dwenger's Varsity should play their home games on field turf as well as their lower level teams . Both schools have excellent football programs that are likely to run deep into the playoffs for years to come.. Both schools have access to a stadium that has a large seating capacity (approx 6000), perfect location, and would go very well with the renovations recently made.. a Corporate sponsor such as a sports medicine group would be icing on the cake. . And they don't have FWCS to block that move. .
  7. . . I can remember my father being transferred from Homewood ,IL. when I went to Homewood-Flossmoor HS, to Ft Wayne, IN back in the mid '70s. . My father wanted to make sure we moved into a school district that had all the academic and sports cultures we were looking for. . Ft Wayne is a city that has many people relocating in and out of. . I thank him for loving me enough to do this, not to mention he enjoys being part of a community that really cares about maintaining a high standard of success on and off the field.. and beyond school. . If I was being relocated to Ft Wayne, with kids still in school, Snider is where I'd want to send my children. .I'm sure there are others out there that feel the same..
  8. SAC Showdown

    Penn was able to find solutions vs Snider as game went on, with speed being one issue. . Schemes on offense and defense being others. . Penn has smart coaches and player that made the right adjustments. ..I believe Snider's coaches and players are also capable of figuring out what adjustments have to be made to increase their chances of pulling off the next opportunity if it presents itself. One HUGE thing they will HAVE to change is the PENALTY issue. . Although Luers found a way to win vs Wayne, Wayne has made improvement and tweaks in their game as the season went on. . Wayne has made a statement, and Snider has heard it loud and clear. .It was the ultimate wakeup call. .
  9. Cathedral @ Center Grove

    Sorry I unfortunately interjected CE and Carmel in this thread out of the blue.
  10. Cathedral @ Center Grove

    I would like to see Columbus East vs Carmel.
  11. SAC Week 8

    Oh, slightly off topic, LaSalle who beat Dwenger 28-7,( with Dwenger missing an opportunity to score 7 more points, and giving up 7 off a turnover just before the half), beat Moeller , Ohio's #1 rated Div. I team last Friday 34-9.. LaSalle is now #1 in Ohio, 31 nation, #25 Xcellent 25. . . Next week, Concordia plays Brebeuf. .Brebeuf plays Chicago Brother Rice this week. . Brother Rice is #201 Nation, #12 Illinois, and is from The Chicago Catholic League Blue Division. . is 5-1, That conference also features Mt Carmel, Joliet Catholic, Providence (New Lenox), Loyola Academy, and St. Laurence. . This is one of the toughest HS football conferences in the nation. . I noticed there was no thread or mention of this match up on The GID . .( kind of wondered why Brebeuf fans or anybody never posted a thread or mentioned anything about this game being played @ Brebeuf tonight, 7:30) . .
  12. I don''t know if Wisconsin does right now or not, When I lived up thee, they had a P/P State Playoff . (don't know the format details yet).
  13. Two of the wealthiest (demographically speaking) schools in northern Indiana, Dwenger and Concordia, sharing same field, located in an area that gets some of the worst weather in the state most often, and they won't install FieldTurf. . .Mind boggling. . I don't care what excuse they use. . Same with FWCS with Spuller Stadium.(FWCS) . .They ignore the maintenance cost ussue. .I don't buy their excuses either. .Homestead (SWAC) just reinstalled new FieldTurf AND installed FieldTurf for Their Band to practice on too, with full markings and everything! . .
  14. Were there a lot of judgement calls? (like personal fouls, clips, and holds) Was it the same crew that worked the Luers/Leo game?
  15. That '93 semi state with Homestead, The weather was not fit for man nor beast. .Wind blowin about 50mph, chill factor must have about -20 or worse. .
