    NFHS Rules Changes

    If you want to get rid of the kickoff you have to have something. I think it’s a reasonable alternative and way better then having no chance at anything

    Interesting. So in theory a team could score 21 points in 20 seconds or less.
  5. Wow this thread is a beast.....

    So what happens if they score on the play?
  7. Today
  8. I’l state the obvious. It is not a coincidence that the states that have these extremely well-compensated coaches are also the states that seem to produce the best teams and the most talented players.

    Asking for prayers

    Thank you. Today was Owens awake and tomorrow is his funeral The kids and staff will be getting out of school early. I believe the boys basketball team will be wrapping their wrists with the words "warrior strong" and "owen" for the rest of the year. Hope both bball teams can help rally the community!

  11. I personally don't care for it, but my opinion doesn't matter. I don't think enough Indiana ADs and admins would support it. If faced with downsizing to 8 man or going the contraction route, I believe the majority would choose contraction. Just my opinion.
  12. So you don't think there would be interest from any schools? or you just don't like it? I get it if you don't like it. Personally, I think it's great. It's certainly different, but it can be fun to watch.
  13. Football is much more ingrained in the state DNA in Oklahoma than it is in Indiana. The state is also much more rural and wide open than Indiana, with fewer main population centers. 8 man and coop programs make more sense there.
  14. Oklahoma also has 2 classes of 8-man teams made up of up to 80 teams. http://ossaa.net/docs/2015-16/Football/FB_2015-16_1617Classifications.pdf

Oklahoma, like Indiana, is very top heavy with mega schools in OK City and Tulsa. They have 32 schools in class 6A, and split into 6A Division 1 and 6A Division 2 If Indiana were to adopt this setup using enrollment, you would see something like this : 6A DIVISION 1 1122 Carmel High School 1282 1299 1174 1245 5000 2211 Ben Davis High School 1225 1094 1035 1008 4362 3444 North Central (Indpls.)

It does, however, make a strong move to address the 6A enrollment variance and put more deserving football programs into the playoff mix
  16. 6A will NEVER be a good class as long as your biggest school in the class is twice as big as the smallest school in the class.

    NFHS Rules Changes

    Had a situation where a kid came out of the backfield on a pitch sweep to the end ... with his mouthpiece tucked in the top of his facemask. He was flagged. He'd also been given a before-start-of-play warning, with no penalty or yards imposed, earlier in the game. While I certainly appreciate that there would be no way to discern if a mouthpiece had been knocked out during a play, seeing it tucked in the helmet takes out several "uncertainties" about whether it was there at the start of the play. Maybe that's considered a "bad call," but given the previous warning and the mouthpiece tucked in the facemask during the game, there was no argument from anyone on the field.

  19. Agree I think you would find widespread support for coop programs I expect you will find very little support for 8 man. Its not real football and there is little appetite for this version outside of a few rural states in the country.

    NFHS Rules Changes

    If you don’t see the mouth piece out before the snap it shouldn’t be a foul. If you see it after the snap but aren’t sure when it came out it’s not a foul just to let you know. So bad example
  22. The IHSAA should immediately begin exploring an 8/9-man classification as well as allowing co-op programs between multiple high schools. The goal should be to get more kids an opportunity to play the sport. Not to make football a sport that only kids who go to big schools can play.

    Lindauer comitts to University of Cincinnati ! Congrats to Michael ! Well deserved #FTF
  24. We have folks right now playing in their assigned class getting griped at for playing in their assigned class instead of one or two classes up. I can't imagine petitioning going down being welcomed graciously unless a team is 0-9 for several seasons in a row.
  25. All of the contractionist and all of the playoffist need to get together, share some fellowship and come back to us with an answer.

    I don't have a problem with stopping play before it happens and making correction with no yardage walked off. But I've also seen situations, like mouth pieces, that aren't caught until after the play starts. In the case that it's caught before the play, you take the player off for the play ... no yards. In the case that it's caught after the play starts, there's a yardage penalty involved. We've used that type of similar rule for over a decade and a half and it's worked well for instruction as well as reinforcement.
