    Not Telling
  1. Slicer 28, I wasn't implying or trying to, that MC is recruiting. All I'm saying is that there are parents who see a team doing good things, and may want to send their kids their, regardless of if coaches and players are telling them to come. There is a RB on MC's team with ties to a few DAC schools whose parent did this. People said the combine displayed their talent, not that they were recruiting other teams players. In terms of parents scrambling, look at their qb this fall and reevaluate that comment.
  2. Cant confirm 100 percent, but I know that more parents are interested in playing for a team that can make a deep run in the playoffs in NWI, since no other DAC schools are trying to do so. From what I heard from area coaches, they had a great looking group of skill and down lineman at their combine last month.
  3. Speaking of an administration going hard for a title, just heard that MC hired another former head coach to add to Mason's staff and that they may have more transfers like they did last year to help them make a deep run. The coach's name is similar to the person the Super Bowl trophy is named after I heard?

    Dont forget Mark Hurt at Ball State
  5. I'm not sure you understand that it's not taking money from the academic budget of the school or the district, but only from the athletic departments budget. Being that South Bend has a city-wide AD, I assume he probably oversees distribution of money raised as a whole to each buildings athletic department. Im sure each building generates some type of revenue as well. The majority of your best students play sports, so if the central office admin decided to move sports away from a school and since South Bend has themed schools, I'm sure many of those tops students would leave. Long winded way of saying just like Hammond and IPS, no contraction.

    From the DAC LaPorte and Michigan City will be strong. While MC looses its leading rushers and three year starter at QB, and leading wr, they being back their online and host of other skilled kids. On MC looses their best player this season Vasquez but get back Robinson in dl who missed the last part of the year. Also Triplett and Wozniak at DE will be back. They will be fast and bigger next year and one more year with Mason as their coach. I expect for them to be back in the semi state next year,
  7. Watched the stream of MC game and you could see that MC had chances early throwing and often running, they just couldn't get out of their own way, especially when rain started. MC played that aggressive defense all year, daring teams to beat them over the top and Kokomo did it in the first half, but pretty much stopped in second half. Kokomo is a slow plodding team, on offense and as everyone saw, threw to #6 every single play until MC finally adjusted. A team with speed and committed to running like I'm hearing East is should have success.
  8. Rick Wimmer should be added to the list, close but no cigar in Merrillville, but he has won two with two different schools, most recently Fishers and then also Zionsville. Unfortunately he was ran out of Merrillville, go figure, the current AD who has run the program into the ground got rid of one of the best coaches in the state of Indiana and also passed on Phil Mason amongst others. Also, don't think Homewood Flossomor has made it to the title game in Illinois.
  9. I remember him, he ran through Mville like Swiss cheese in a game that year. Spicer or Jackson were there backs that year.
  10. Tommy the older McFarrin played for LaPorte in the late 80s, he isn't from MC
  11. Excited to see two team that appear evenly matched with regards to talent/athletes, so to me it comes down to coaching and the Wolves have five former head coaches and Mason has won a state title.
  12. Any live streams that anyone knows of this game. Also just noticed that MC has also lost two straight road playoff games, all of them on grass, and all in the Michiana area. They also lost to Northridge, albeit two seasons ago in Elkhart County on a grass field. Will see if history has any bearing on them. What are the field conditions like at that stadium, is it all muddied up orders it still have grass. I see this a a true advantage for Concord to have a team that doesn't play on grass doing so on the coldest night of the year two counties away from home and in a different time zone. Besides the fact that MC's losses have all come on the road this year. It shouldn't be the difference in the outcome, but it can help limit the decided speed advantage MC has.
  13. Not sure about the pop warner connection, all i know is that they have been the classic case of a team with some good individual talent and athletes but no structure or discipline. Well they are a totally different team the past two years with their new staff or should I say there is a different attitude. I watched the LaPorte game too, and that is how LaPorte plays, they are huge upfront, big qb, and their small rb's hide behind that line with the misdirection, MC after one time around, was able to figure it out and make it look like garbage, that is great coaching. I'm not sure of what the other schools have in terms of coaching, but it is very clear MC not only has the talent, they have the coaching.
  14. Being a DAC follower, Pirate fan, I will say MC was the fastest and most athletic team that we played this year. They were also physical, right up there with Penn and Valpo. Minus the Homewood Flossomor which is comparable to a top MIC team, they lost two games on the last play of the game, hailmary's. What is also of note, MC has a coaching staff with three people who have led teams to regionals, the head coach, Phil Mason, D-Cordinator Roy Richards, and line coach, Ken Bye. They have one top flight receiver who was also state finalist in high jump last year, and a bunch of small but very quick/fast skilled players. Other than the first game against LaPorte, their D shut down everyone, and then they shut down LaPorte last week. As pointed out their two best DL have been out for most of the season, neither one of them played against us.
