  2. If you guys can make it where I don’t have to mess with PayPal you have my money. just need a simple interface that I can enter my card # instead of waiting 5-7 days for PayPal with my bank.
  3. @Irishmanalready let the cat out of the bag, but I was going to let you know these posts were from 2019. I have slept a lot since then. In all seriousness Sectional 14 is an intriguing sectional to me. The Sectional 14 championship could be Whiteland vs New Palestine. That being said New Pal plays Franklin and Whiteland plays Columbus East. Whiteland beat Columbus East 28-7 earlier this season Aug 20th, and Whiteland lost to Franklin 35-21 on September 10th. Sagarin has Whiteland as 45% chance of winning the sectional and New Pal at 34% chance of winning the sectional. Sectional 14 could be one of the most competitive Sectionals with 4 teams that could be a toss up. I will throw a prediction that both home teams win (Whiteland beats Columbus East and New Pal beats Franklin). Which will make for an interesting game as I am sure New Pal will want to avenge last years sectional loss.

  6. Did I just see that Elkhart set a home & home series with Carmel, starting next season? Kudos to Elkhart. Seems like they have decided to be a player.

  9. I wouldnt get too hung up on size in the trenches .... it can b overcome by quickness n technique on both sides of the ball.... still a firm believer that speed kills ........
  10. I think HSE definitely has a chance. Merrillville is real tough up in the region and is rolling right now. Westfield wouldn’t see Merrillville until semi-state I believe so HSE has first crack. (In sectional I believe) Westfield by no means is a foregone conclusion in 6A North.
  11. I’m open to Luers getting turf but to be completely honest I love that grass field, I think 9/10 nights it plays fast and is very well taken care of. As I stated previously, over an inch of rain will make even the best grass fields turn into pure slop.
  12. Having seen the City vs Valpo game in the regular season, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the Wolves did beat the Vikings in the regional. They were without Omarion Hatch and an offensive linemen in their loss to Valpo, and Tyler Bush was starting his first game on varsity. It was 28-28 before City gave up a long td and then fumbled on their very next offensive play. I think Valpo and City will play in the regional and it will be very interesting to see what happens.
  13. I think Hamilton Southeastern has a better chance of beating Westfield in the tournament than Merrillville does.
  14. AGREED...But FWCS is not 'turfing' a lower level field (Bowser)...... AGREED. Now back to the lecture at hand... As I feel that we are in a vortex that is outside of the Luersfield situation. Luers NEEDS turf...no question!
  15. I had no idea that the surrounding neighborhoods wouldn’t sign off on the rebuild. Wow. All I know is is that Snider should have it’s own stadium. I was just talking to a buddy about how Spuller Stadium doesn’t look right with that giant Bruin at midfield.
  16. Again, as I said earlier. the NEIGHBORHOOD will not allow a full on Stadium to be put in place at the Bowser Field location. That's fine, let's just begin construction on the turf field then. It only makes business sense. Snider's JV and Freshmen games are more likely to pay it off quicker than South Side or Wayne's Varsity games. Heck, the extended residents weren't in favor of the Layhmeyer Road facility either. And how'd that work out for those residents? Never mind, let's not go down that path. When they seem to be content with the current situation on Friday nights sharing a facility with Northrop? You're right, su casa mi casa.
  17. Again, as I said earlier. the NEIGHBORHOOD will not allow a full on Stadium to be put in place at the Bowser Field location. Heck, the extended residents weren't in favor of the Layhmeyer Road facility either. Even capitulating to the neighborhood to construct a Baseball facility off Long Road, they couldn't put in lights. I am befuddled as to where a full on FB Stadium could/would be constructed...perhaps off Coliseum Blvd.? (Old Home Depot location...) But now that brings us to the funding of the construction. Are you sure that the 'ultra-conservative' FW taxpayers would vote for a tax increase to give Snider a stand alone facility; When they seem to be content with the current situation on Friday nights sharing a facility with Northrop?
  18. Snider doesn’t just need a turf field out at Bowser, they need to do what Dwenger did and rebuild the stadium as a whole. Snider should be next and honestly should’ve been first. I do think, however, that FWCS knows that Bowser needs a whole rebuild and may be saving it for last because it will cost the most. Just me spitballing though.
  19. Oh I know they have. I’ve heard it has to do with an ongoing project within the school itself. Maybe there are other reasons idk. That’s great to hear that Wayne, North and South are getting turf. They need it. The grass at South back in the mid 2000’s was mostly dirt and stones lol. Can’t imagine what it’s like now.
  20. Snider's Turf Field is located off Cook Road, at a facility named "Spuller Stadium" You changed the entire narrative of "turf fields" by introducing lower level games. That is NOT the topic, nor the thrust of the original post. (Even if you are correct) Unless and until, the Fort Wayne residents on the near NE side agree and allow an expansion of Snider facilities to include a FB Stadium, the current 'sharing of a facility' on Friday nights will continue. I think it is much more incumbent upon FWCS to solve the situations with Wayne/North/South at this time, then deal with the Snider issues later.
  21. Someone was too short for the state police.....I kid I kid.
  22. We still need to raise over $1000 for the Gridiron Digest to cover this seasons bills. If you have not donated to become a booster now would be a good time.
