  1. 6A Football

    I think Avon will be very good. Defense returns nearly all of its starters. Offensively they do have to replace QB and receivers. They have some good options and expect the transition to be made easier with James in the backfield and a very solid returning O-line. Time will tell. Curious who you think the other 2 teams are that will compete for the HCC title?
  2. I understand and respect everyone’s right to an opinion but give Coach Simmons time. What were anyone’s expectations for the ‘18 season with Kirchner or anyone else at the helm? It make not be the sexy pick of Hart to Brownsburg but I don’t think many thought that Herbert at Carmel or Marsh at Roncalli were the best hires either....those don’t look so bad now, do they? Bottom line....Jason a Simmons is a decent man with a lot of football knowledge that is passionate about this program. I’m not saying that this will go down as a great hire. I just think he deserves a chance. Also consider that this is not an easy job. I know that their are some great coaches around that had ZERO interest in the job. 200 players and staff, high expectations, a tough schedule and playing in the south semi-state....not an easy job!
  3. From what I have heard and seen the IHSAA has become more passive on transfer athletes. I think if both schools are good with it, the athlete generally is granted full eligibility. The process involves an application from the new school that is sent to the IHSAA. That should be done as soon as possible after the student enrolls. Depending on when Warren was able to submit this, he is: 1) already fully eligible 2) has been denied eligibility and pending an appeal that could happen at the next meeting (I believe that would be tomorrow) 3) the IHSAA has not yet received or been able to process the application. This is all very interesting as the ruling should confirm or deny the IHSAA’s willingness to become involved in the review of transfer situations. Assuming that Cathedral did sign off. If eligible, does this mean he plays next year? (Enter Roman Purcell thread #2)
  4. 5a

    Wouldn’t rule out a run by Concord either
  5. Yep...every good 3A conversation should included West Lafayette
  6. You are correct...I forgot that they left that sectional last year.
  7. 1A- PIONEER and everyone else 2A- WEBO or Mater Dei. Southridge and Tipton have a shot too. Southridge lost a lot for a 2A school but has a strong group of rising sophomores 3A- MEMORIAL, Danville or Guerin. 4A- EAST CENTRAL and Lowell 5A- COLUMBUS EAST or Cathedral. Zionsville could be a dark horse. New Pal too it if can find a way past Columbus East in the sectional. CE will have a different look but should be a very solid bunch 6A- WARREN CENTRAL, Carmel, CG or Avon...Its too early to tell with BD and LC. Columbus North probably doesn’t have a great shot but could make things leading up to LOS interesting. 6A has the fewest teams but may have the most possibilities. Warren probably has the deepest roster if that becomes a factor. Carmel and Avon should both be very good defensively. On offense the top teams seem to have the most consistency at RB. Many will have new QBs, WR’s or both. Warren looks to have the most back in offensive skilled positions...ironically Dean Tate played both QB and WR at times and will be missed but they do return the leading passer, rusher and receiver.
  8. Columbus north

    Everyone on this forum knows what happened at Columbus...both coaches were out of line in the heat of the moment and that was unfortunate. The fake news is you creating a post that infers that his job is in jeopardy because you know a guy that knows a guy that would like him replaced. Perhaps you also know a guy that knows a guy that would like to be the HC there Coaches have families and it is unhealthy for programs to create speculation about their head coach. These are the reasons that the “coaching changes” thread has a no rumors rule posted.
  9. Columbus north

    Stop with the FAKE NEWS!
  10. Columbus north

    There are people in every community want their go coach to go. (Including yours) I don’t have a dog in the fight but I think it would be a loss to the kids and community if he were to leave.
  11. LC job opening

    Coach Moyers would be a great fit and was on the LC staff early in his career. He has a son in the Plainfield program so I don’t expect his hat to be in the ring.
  12. Mid State

    While the ICC decision is interesting and makes some sense, I don’t agree that Mooresville needs to look elsewhere. A quick check shows that Mooresville has the most conference titles since 2000 when looking at football, boys basketball and girls basketball. If only considering football, the last couple of years have been less than stellar but not an outlier amongst conference teams. I have also heard that they finished this past season playing younger players and feel pretty good about some of next year’s freshman and sophomore talent. I don’t disagree that there may be some other options but don’t see this a dire need for Mooresville. I’ll also add that their enrollment is very near that of Martinsville and Franklin.
  13. Mid State

    Don’t disagree with any of that! And a second year in Moyer’s offense is a wild card for them. I was only offering an opinion as to where I thought they would be next year. The picture is likely brighter for Plainfield in 3 years when the 7th grader’s are contributing.
  14. Mid State

    Just my opinion based on what they are losing: 8 defensive starters, leading rusher and QB.
  15. Mid State

    Trending Up - Martinsville, Whiteland, Mooresville, Franklin Trending Down - Plainfield, Decatur Central, Greenwood That said, I look for DC to be the top team again this year. I also look for PM to have a better record via the combination of a lighter schedule and many returning players. Also, the Bloomington’s would make the most sense logistically of schools that may be accepted. (Roncalli has been turned away previously)
