New Field for New Pal

Recommended Posts

Saw the old field tore up, looks like New Pal gets field turf this year.

That is great the only bad thing is CG just got new red pants to play on the grass field lol

Not sure the color of pants will change the outcome.  CG is a completely different level of competition that New Pal sees.  The closest they ever come to that  is when they played Cathedral some time back in the playoffs.  Of course other New Pal opponents Roncolli  and Columbus East are really good, I wonder if they would have been a better team for CG to pick up in place of Whiteland?

New Pal has earned their shot to play a big team like CG. I wouldn't be so fast as to put this as an automatic W in the CG column. Still a lot of inexperience incoming this season.

I agree! I think New Pal will put up a fight. I would have loved CE to pick up somebody like Roncalli or CG for thier opener. The CE vs CG games have been good games. A ton for respect for New Pal and CG

Maybe if CG is way down and New Pal fields a solid team they may have a chance but the numbers don't work toward their favor.  CG is almost three time New Pal in student population and i would guess the amount of bodies in their football program from freshman to seniors would be about the same.  Odds are good that CG can fill skilled graduating players positions better then New Pal.  If i were a betting man i wouldn't bet against CG in this one.  Who knows, guess thats why the games are played.

Getting back to the field, I understand to change to field turf but i've always thought natural turf adds factors to a game that coaches need to keep in mind. CE's loss to New Pal in the mud?  Way back in my high school days our coach made sure the grass was tall during game day.  Guess he thought it helped our team out.

Never understood this concept, if true, isn't it going to make slow kids slower too?

somehow my coach had this idea, of course this was the early 70's and high school coaches for the most part were part time coaches at best.  we ran two plays from a wishbone offense.  Triple option and quick pitch.  Maybe a screen pass once or twice.

Don't we hear this exact same story from the CG people every year?

Hilarious!

This goes back to 2005

The CG fanbase are the best in the business when it comes to lowering expectations and creating the illusion of brewing trouble.

They are masterful.  

Its an important part of the overall strategy that keeps them competitive with the Big 3.  I give them credit.  Its a solid tactic when properly utilized.  Timing is the key.

2,500 vs 1,119

Its a big difference but it isn't three times.

Regardless I applaud NP for playing CG.

I was going from memory since in my advanced age recall is getting rougher.  I tried to do a little homework from last years rosters.  I looked at both high schools websites and noticed the following.  Just FYI

From last years varsity CG roster they had 100 listed but i couldn't tell how many Freshman were on it.  Freshman roster was 47.  I'll guess that JV is just made up of varsity non starters.  Giving CG approx 150.

New Pal was a little harder to get numbers since they don't have a freshman roster posted but the varsity showed 51 but 6 were freshman.  

I don't think any programs limit rosters so i would guess that CG's total high school program 9-12 grade is about 150 rounding out.  If they do limit then that would indicate they get to screen for talent.

NP maybe 70 on the high end depending on freshman.  Guessing about 20 freshman total so add the missing 14 from the varsity roster.  From the varsity roster the Soph and  Jr class were about 15 to 20 each and the Sr class was 7 from my count.  I think NP fielded a frosh team, maybe somebody out there can provide info.  If not then NP's numbers are pretty small then, dropping them back to the 50's.
