    I only was able to partake one time thus far in the mysterious Knepp Field, what a dandy it was in 2005. Saw this come across my wire recently, Pretty Awesome idea by the Jimmies, kuddos

    Lincoln. Jasper’s biggest rival. In a conference that is falling apart in front of everyone’s eyes. Uncertain future if they stay, but willing to step up and play “the big boys” unlike another that has been discussed here. Makes sense. Gibson Southern. No affiliation with Jasper in football. Conference is stable and strong. Showed no inclination of wanting to move until the last hour. I personally could care less which school the SIAC took with Jasper. I like both schools that were mentioned here. So to me, I’ll go to Lincoln and Jasper when Reitz has games there, and you know what? I won’t gripe about them being brought into the conference. I am ok with driving an hour to see a game. Heck, been doing it for a very long time, and won’t be stopping anytime soon.

    I've seen Road Atlas' in use twice in the last year. Once in a hotel lobby, the other was just last week by 2 ladies at a gas pump. It's the strangest sight. I used to purchase a new one every year and had quite a few Indiana city maps I carried with me. Along with all the Hotel books from the different chains. Now all that stuff is in my pocket.

    This is a great summation by Andy Rooney "There have only been a handful of days since the beginning of time on which the direction the world was taking has been changed for the better in one 24-hour period by an act of man." https://www.cbsnews.com/news/andy-rooney-on-world-war-ii-d-day-a-day-unlike-any-other-60-minutes-2019-06-06/

    As a former coach, I would much rather have a 10th game instead of the scrimmage.

    Any numbers or is this like your opinion man? Because your opinion ain't worth spit: 5/14/18 “I think Jeffersonville will be 2nd place. 5/15/18 “Jeff upgraded their coaching significantly. They have a ton of talent” 8/5/18 “Jeffersonville wont be any good this year......." 7/15/18 "“He (Glesing) absolutely is the 2nd best coach in this conference." 8/31/18 “But this Floyd Central team is pretty good. They're bigger. They're faster. And I honestly feel like they are coached better defensively. And I like their offense.” 8/24/18 “Providence won't have 4 first downs” 8/25/18 “Great adjustments by coach Bragg. Good win (over Providence).”

    The ENTIRE success factor promotion and "stay up" factors are 100% arbitrarily set. The success factor points and 2 year count process could easily be changed a number of ways which would yield other results. @Bobref claims the system is designed for when teams 'consistently' overwhelm the competition. Really? Is TWO years consistent? Or is it the byproduct of a good class of athletes attending a school at the right (or wrong, depending on perspective) time? East Central High school from 2015-2018 is a great example. Those four years: state runner up, Regional Champ, State Champ, Sectional Champ. That's 10 points in a 4 year span. 6 points in a two year span. But because it's a two year cycle that resets, they never bumped up to 5A. Meanwhile Indianapolis Scecina has losing seasons in 2009 and 2010. Then they are state runner up in 2011 and 2012. That's 6 points in two years - the RIGHT two years by the arbitrarily set standard and they get bumped up. So which team consistently played above their class? So the system currently in place tells Scecina they've had "enough" success while East Central hasn't. Got it. Making a change like a rolling 2 year count, a 4 year cycle count, adding a bonus to a state championship - making it worth 5 points instead of 4. All of these tweaks could be made to the current system. Would we say teams that get promoted under that system would be more or less representative of consistent success? And both @BTF and @slice60 feel Snider has been competitive enough in 6A. Perhaps. I am not downplaying any team that wins a sectional, representative of a good season and lots of hard work by the teams. But my biggest beef is that sectionals are somewhat geographically constructed and teams are blindly drawn. Being best in your local area is good enough, and not when judged against the entire state. The problem is not all sectionals are created equally, and it's more noticeable in 5A and 6A when there are four teams. New Pal is currently playing in 5A. So winning Sectional 14 should be viewed the same as winning sectional 13? And both of those are the same as winning sectional 16 two years in a row? Southridge is playing up in 3A. They were put in sectional 32. Winning sectional 32 is the same as winning sectional 30? And those are both the same accomplishment as winning sectional 28 in back to back years? No, I don't think being the best around and winning your sectional in two years is "enough" success to keep you up, when you had to be one of the best in the ENTIRE state to get promoted. And as the East Central/ Scecina comparison proves, even getting bumped up is more a matter of timing than continued success.

    https://www.elkharttruth.com/sports/high_school/an-open-letter-to-ihsaa-commissioner-bobby-cox/article_841397d2-7b3c-5682-880d-c3a3017a275e.html Here's an article that backs up your point that the bigger schools are dominating 4A & those other sports like tennis, track&field, cross country, soccer, etc. *** Here are my own thoughts on why Football has more than 4 classes. 1) Fewer schools play football. 320 currently, compared to over 400 in Boys Basketball. By placing no more than 64 teams in each class for football, state finalists play no more than 6 tournament games & the tournament always takes 6 weeks. With 9 regular season games, nobody plays more than 15 games. Conversely, all other team sports can play multiple games during the same week or even 2 games in the same day sometimes. And it's no big deal for a team to play 7 or more tournament games in those other sports. 2) In general, enrollment is more important to Football than other sports. Smaller schools with 3 or 4 very talented basketball players or even just 1 super-phenom pitcher can compete with anybody. In Football, you need depth to compete in the higher classes-- teams with a solid 22 almost always beat a team that has a lot of players playing Off & Def plus injuries wreak havoc as the season goes on. When the IHSAA looked closely at who was having success in 5A Football from 1985-2012, they realized that the larger enrollment schools were completely dominating. And that's why they added 6A. Check out the 5A results from 1997-2012 - it's almost all 6A names here.

    Currently the median income in the US is 59K and some change. According to the chart linked 10% of our population is living in deep poverty that is defined as less than 40% of the national median income, 23,6ish. Or roughly an $11 buck an hour job. You can probably survive in rural Indiana on that income but you're going to be in a lot of trouble in a metro area or on the coasts. My salary is above the median income, yet I still spend time doing other stuff to make additional money. I like toys, I spend money on stupid stuff at times. My point being while I don't necessarily have two or three jobs, I do stuff for pay in my spare time to earn more money. I'm responsible, I show up when I'm suppose to, I do what I'm suppose to, I don't require supervision, I am at times required to handle fairly large sums of money, and it all makes it where it's suppose to. When our kids were younger, my wife and I both worked 2nd jobs to provide for our family. In many cases our kids had, and we went without. This is the problem as I see it in today's world, people aren't willing to take responsibility for themselves and their families. It's easier to blame the system, the government, the man, whatever for your lack of success.

    Hello everyone, my name is Cory Smith and for the last year ( started August 2018), I've run a Pro-Warren Central Warriors Football Podcast called, True Warrior Football. In the time that I've done this show, I've learned so much about the history of the program that I have loved for so long. If you want to see the work I've done so far, here is the link to my podcast website, https://audioboom.com/channels/4970501 The show is also available on Apple Podcasts and all major podcast apps. Just search "True Warrior Football" Last Saturday, I did a live podcast show at Indy PopCon and I had a livestream that can be viewed below. In that livestream, I announced that I am going to expand and do True Football: Indiana. My goal for that show is just about the same with True Warrior Football. I want to talk about the history of Indiana Football. I want to talk with the greats of high school football from across the state and have them share their stories with those that don't know them. I also want to cover the teams that are great around the state that don't get the promotion and coverage that they deserve. I'm looking to cover the teams from The Region all the way down to Evansville and everywhere in between. I'm very excited about this venture and look forward to working the many high school programs from across the entire state. If you have a great story about your team and would like for me to interview you for the show, so you can share it with others, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I have always felt like high school football here in Indiana doesn't get the credit it deserves for being really good and my mission to change the mind of people all over about what goes down here on Friday nights at stadiums all across our great state! Thanks for your time folks and enjoy your day!!!! https://twitter.com/TrueWarriorFB1/status/1137384496146341889

    From what I have seen in games across the state, the QB playing defense is most prevalent at the 1A and 2A levels because of numbers. It occurs occasionally at the 3A level on a situational basis. I have not seen any QB's play defense at the 4A or 5A level. At those levels, why would you put one of your most valuable and important players at risk?

    Some years it rains more than others. Farmers are at the mercy of the weather. I don't make the rules, I just follow them. Of course if our backwards thinking governor would get off his hands, Hemp could have already been in the ground and thriving with all the wet May weather.

    I know Kevin Davis. Great guy and he is doing a great job as AD according to everyone I've heard from in the school district. Let's be careful and not assume what was written is what was actually said or meant to be said in the manner it was written. We see it all the time and knowing Kevin the way I do, I highly doubt it is accurate.

    I can remember when I was a kid, these folks were mid-late 40's...early 50's, they were old people to me, who seemed to be living in history. It's only come to me over time the sacrifices that were made. Fortunately as I have grown older, I've been able to be antiquated with several of this generation and had the opportunity to hear some of the stories, not necessarily of the war itself, just the times. It's sad that most of this generation are now gone, and with them the stories, the lives, the history and the lessons of the great war. I think now more than ever, it is important that we remember and learn from, not only what happened on the coast of northern France 75 years ago, but from the entire time in human history.

    Jimtown is nothing but pure class. Our crew worked our last regular season game there before we called it quits, and they treated us like kings ... as always. So many great experiences at Knepp over the years.

    I can't see any appetite from any of the DAC schools to add Penn to the conference. The DAC likes being the big school conference for the "region" and adding a school from St. Joe county, let alone one that would be the big dog as soon as they got in, isn't going to be supported by any of the schools. Also, going to a 10 team league would screw up lots of traditional rivalries that these schools like to maintain. I don't see the DAC being interested in adding a private school like Andrean either. There really isn't a whole lot for the DAC to gain by adding anyone.
