  1. This is what I know, on Bomber Golf practice round, Coach Nowlin Shanked a Wedge, got thru a tree, hit a Tee box and bounced and hit a fella in the buttock. That fella was Lewis Cass Head Coach, I would say that is Karma working !! 🤣

  2. Just like seeding the sectionals- it really is NOT that hard. Just bump the P/P up one class and be done with it. They have built-in advantages over Public schools and anyone who denies that is just delusional.

  6. Not to hijack this thread - but the title of it reminded me that we are almost to my "favorite" (SARCASM) part of the football season - the PLAY TO THUD/QUICK WHISTLE portion of the summer with these 11X11 scrimmages or whatever you want to call them Some annoyances to try and avoid for you new coaches - or advice for coaches that just don't get it: 1. This is NOT the Super Bowl 2. Your actions (Coaches) a lot of times will "fuel" the problems that will arise in the scrimmage. (Hooting/hollering, chest-bumping, etc...) 3. Football is already a combative and emotional sport, don't egg it on by inappropriate actions - AND, if you have a player taking it over the edge, remove him/her until they understand no trophies are handed out in June/July 4. As you can probably tell, I DESPISE these things cause I don't really think football can be played at THUD level...someone (either an RB lowering his shoulder) or a safety running full speed downhill will start it...then the next play someone else has to get it back, and on and on. - That said, I know they are not going away - so here is to hoping everyone stays healthy and understands the purpose of these things.

  7. The issue with long drives isn't fans or Varsity Football on Friday nights.....its kids spending 2.5 hours in a bus on a school night to play a JV Tennis Match and all the other sports that don't exclusively play on Friday night. Commuting for football doesn't bother me at all......but go talk to the baseball coach that has to play a double header 80 minutes away and then teach the next day. That burns out coaches and their families very quickly

  8. The problem is not that the FBI is bad at what it does. In fact, they’re very good at their law enforcement responsibilities. The problem is that the Bureau is now wielded as a political instrument, not a law enforcement agency.

  9. Why should the NLC blow up their conference to help SB area schools???? This would be stupid for Ply/Waw/NR/NW. Say bye bye to a large amount of your athletic gate, and quite a few of your JV/Frosh contests in a lot of sports. Several MUCH smaller athletic programs want nothing to do with the SB schools for those exact reasons. Why should 4A NLC schools want to hitch themselves to those SB schools???? You could argue that the NLC is holding back Warsaw, but they have a much better situation in the NLC than they would in a South Bend/Elkhart conference.

  10. What does Jeff, Harrison and McCutcheon and the NCC have to do with the topic of Lewis Cass leaving the Hoosier Conference for the Three Rivers? Start a new thread if you want to dig deeper into what's going on in the NCC.

  11. You know that, and I know that. But nevertheless, I give you the Roncalli Royals. And I don’t think the prominent display of the Confederate battle flag at Roncalli events over the years helped.

  16. Of course it can be - but my point in my original post is that during these 11X11 "competitions" - someone most always takes it over the edge.

  17. Not to dig up any old dead horses...but these so called academics need to take statistics 101 again....As has been pointed out ad naseum....The advantage in P/P demographics is not who they count.....but who they NEVER have to count. The fact this went unstated in the article is due to one of more of the following: Poor quoting of the researchers statements from the Indystar. Ignorance of the researchers on the issues relavent to their study Some type of bias in study's collection methods. A "clearinghouse" method of counting students would account for this, and may have possibly precluded any need for SF.

  21. School boundaries are already set and are not changed by annexation. If the area is part of the WeBo school district and is annexed by Lebanon, the school districts would have to agree on the boundaries being changed. I believe in Indiana school boundaries are determined by township lines. Those are not affected by annexation. For an example, look at Noblesville and the number of Noblesville residents who attend HSE Schools.

  23. Not complaining about enrollment. Simply stating that what you were saying about enrollment is no longer true. We have been in 6A for seven years and for us to have post-season success, we will have to beat teams that have 1,000+ more kids than us. Did the eastern NCC schools have an issue with enrollment of HHS/McC? Not sure. Ask them. It is not my position to speak further on the “why” behind Jeff’s vote in favor of these changes. I can tell you that searching for regular season wins in football had absolutely nothing to do with it. I can assure you that we will continue to find/seek the best teams that we can play during the regular season in order to prepare ourselves to be at our best for the playoffs. It is my hope that HHS/McC remain on our schedule in football regular season moving forward.

  24. My comment was mildly facetious, but I will respond with earnestness. We will probably never completely agree on the topic, and that is fine with me. I respect your opinion and understand your viewpoint. My contention is that I do not find the term "Indian" offensive. I say that acknowledging I am neither the perpetrator (Catholic) nor aggrieved party (Native American) in this scenario. If someone wants to change names, focus on things like Angel Mounds. Can you name the group or tribe who inhabited the area and built the mounds? I had to wikipedia it myself, and I have been there numerous times. The name Angel comes from the family who owned the property in the 1800's. That seems like a more noble cause for a name change. I can't tell you off-hand the name of the Mississippi Indians and how they inhabited Angel Mounds (to save people from googling) but I could tell you there once was a chief named Tecumseh and the Kickapoo Indians once inhabited Indiana. I may never heard those names or had a curiosity sparked, if the people of Lynnville or Owensville had changed them. Indian names and imagery are completely imbedded in the language of this state, Indiana. Mississinewa, Wapahani, Maconaquah. The merging of cultures and histories, warts and all, is something I would rather see embraced than erased. I will end with another facetious comment. According to Ludacris and Missy Elliot, "Minuteman" is as about a derogatory term as a someone could be called. Hey-ooo.

  25. I heard the NN Spartans were originally supposed to be the Yankees, but they backed off and settled for Spartans. I do understand the use of Indians if it is cartoonish or disparaging can be offensive, and Redskins is going a bit far. I would personally be more offended being called a Minuteman. That could get you a bad reputation!

  26. Redskins I'll give you. Perfectly fine with that getting removed, that was the only derogatory one. Braves/Indians mascots should never be removed... there is nothing derogatory there. If so.... absolutely Irish, Quakers, etc need to be removed as they are just as offensive, as Braves/Indians are. Pendleton Heights? yeah you're giving your mascot name back too. Yankess+Texans, nope you gotta give yours up, as well. Cowboys.. you too. THE BOSTON CELTICS!! Can't have that. But we do live in a society that found Aunt Jemima+Uncle Ben offensive lol ... Land O Lakes butter--- HELL NO!!! Crazy, soft times we live in. Same! And the Nebraska Cornhuskers!! don't get me started there. The Floyd Central Highlanders, Minnesota Vikings are a few that sticks in my crawl.

  29. Foxbat: I can assure you that having "the inside track" for NCC/regular seasons victories in football had absolutely nothing to do with Jeff being part of the 70% to vote TSC out of the NCC. Additionally, your continued posts stating that Jeff is the largest school in the county is not factual. Look up the Fall 2022 ADM enrollment numbers. HHS has officially surpassed Jeff. Look for Jeff to be hanging out in the range of 1,980-2,090 students moving forward. HHS enrollment growth or the highly competitive games dating back to 2017 had absolutely nothing to do with why we are where we are today. It is my hope that those within the Lafayette community will continue to see Jeff/HHS/McC continue to play each other on the gridiron in the future. It is unfortunate we are we are. However, the kids and the communities deserve to be part of those games.

  31. Ahhh I'm glad you brought up PETA, excellent point... and in some cases, they put "fighting" in front of the mascot's name. So not only do they mock/make fun of animals, they want them to be dangerous! The horrors!

  32. Don't forget the Kokom Wildkats. And let PETA show up in Frankfort to protest the Hot Dogs. They will get run out of town on a rail, guaranteed.

  33. Has this become the Nickname Hall of Fame 2.0? Will religious leaders find problems with Red and Blue Devils of Lowell, Pike, Richmond, Tipton, and West Lafayette? Even Pappy Gipper's Alma Mater was the Blue Devils before consolidating into South Newton and becoming the equally politically correct Rebels. I wonder if PETA will show up in Oxford sometime this fall to protest BC's Bison. They may also go after the Bronchos of Lafayette Jeff for the mere fact they can't properly spell it. Safe schools would include the Hanover Central Wildcats, Lawrence Central Bears, Rushville Lions, and Seymour Owls, The ancient worlds of Greece and Rome have been glorified, too as many schools have chosen Athenians, Spartans, Titans, and Trojans as their moniker. The Pendleton Heights Arabians would probably be on PETA's list as opposed to that race of people who seem to hate everything.

  34. Different in my opinion. I'm not aware of the Catholic Church running assimilation schools (under the guise of missions) in Ireland the same way they did in North America and other places that contributed to the persecution of native people (culture, language, etc.). Plus, ND's mascot is the leprechaun (a fairy in Irish folklore) and not a depiction of a person from Ireland. Indian mascots are often based on inaccurate, derogatory and/or stereotypical representations. That's my soapbox for the day...

  35. Considering all sports, wouldn't Loganstport dominate most of the current HC? No they will not- they haven't won a basketball sectional game since 2014 I believe- they will at least be competitive in new conference but dominate? No way- wrestling not what it used to be-soccer, track, cross country, swimming will just be a competitor- girls sports just another competitor- baseball is their thing at Logan- always talented-always competitive- the new conference won't be a pushover though with very strong programs at Western/NW It's a good move geographically for Logan, but they won't dominate this conference any more than they did the NCC- they are a 4A school with 2 or 3A athletes other than baseball.

  38. Logansport has great athletic facilities and is a good fit from a geography standpoint. Looks like an hour or so to their furthest opponent. Teams who haven't played hoops in the Berry Bowl is a pretty cool experience, good move for Logan IMO.

  42. Yep. Thanks Biden. At the same time the assessed valuation the government puts on my modest home, which has stayed within about $5k of what I paid for it over 20 years ago has now somehow mysteriously increased in value over the last 2 years by over $55,000. This has of course the intended intention of greatly increasing my property tax burden so the city of Frankfort can pay for a new park, a new swimming pool, err excuse me aquatics center, and a new police station. And also tack on the bill coming due for the $30 million dollar renovation to Frankfort High School a few years ago. Yet the city politicians can crow "we didn't raise the tax rates to pay for all this". All I see is collusion between the city government and the county government, who is in charge of the property assessments.

  45. I was pointing out the absurdity of how the regular season has no bearing on how the post-season is done. When I tell people from other states about how Indiana does this, they think I am joking. They can't believe anyone would ever set up a system like this. We have a competitive 9-week exhibition season.
