  1. ...for the downtime this week. My main reason for making this post is really to test. This 'thing' has been a pain in my back side this week. Carry on, enjoy yourselves.

  5. This is a topic often not considered when schools are looking for potential opponents. It's probably THE most important thing that should be considered. If a school still has paper coke/Pepsi cups for soft drinks with real carbonation happening behind the counter. That school gets a +5 on the concessions list. You can usually tell a lot about the quality of opponents by how good food is at the concessions. If they have burnt popcorn or cold hot dogs and no greasy hamburgers or brauts like a college campus don't consider them. US parents like to eat a lot so quit making me stop at fast food on my way to the games and let me support the FFA club by buying a 1/2lbs heart attack burger they made on a grill donated by the local bar. Allow me to buy the 1gal slushy from the drama department. My point is concessions have gotten worse and I'm tired of cold popcorn terrible tasting better for your health hot dogs, and soft drinks that taste like they sat in an athletic department cooler since last year. I want greasy unhealthy foods with softdrinks in a paper cup and real carbonation. So what schools have the best concession stands?

  11. I'm assuming no less than "17 D1 players" since they are (reportedly) even better than last year. I wonder if they will also receive " 5 offers from army and navy" that "decided to go to marion (sic)" just like last year. With that, you can anticipate that if they lose to another team there will be "5" or "7" or "11" starters who didn't play (for a variety of reasons that only seem to exclude a mass kidnapping from ancient aliens)....regardless, the number of missing starters in any loss seems to be variable. But aside from that, they are the best team in the State of Indiana. I think I've covered it generally.

  12. What? I want kids to enjoy their senior year of high school. Those memories will outlast their playing career. I also want to make sure they are mature enough to handle what awaits them on a big college campus. Selfish? Hardly.

  13. Snapped their losing streak tonight when they defeated West Central. After watching them vs NN, I do not think it will be their last win of the year if they can keep getting their talented Freshman class up to Varsity speed and keep their Mr. Everything QB healthy Kuddos to my friend @CoachDurham and crew

  15. This is just a hunch, but perhaps Reb has access to the bird's eye view provided by a Hi-Pod X31 while everyone else is looking at an inferior shot. There's really nothing quite like an X31 fully extended on an October Friday evening, towering over all else in majestic splendor.

  18. Maybe those government school extracurriculars are not as interesting to the current student body as they once were? Maybe more students want or need jobs? As for parents being overworked, when more and more of your paycheck goes to the government to pay for state and federal entitlements you have to work more to have that nice SUV, McMansion, DirectTV w/ the max number of channels, multiple cell phones, etc.

  19. Respectfully disagree. This is a good football team that needs to run the football 75% of the time. Caleb is perfect for the job. Great leader and he has his teammates trust. JMO but we are in trouble if we ask a 9the grader to lead this group. He made a nice pass vs Central’s backups in a blowout.

  23. It’s a Husky tradition for the team to eat breakfast at Erika’s Place in Cicero on game day. They usually meet at 6 am before school, but since today is an elearning day, they met at 9. My kids brought brunch home for me, one of Erika’s famous Breaded Pork Tenderloins. The mustard is on the bottom side.

  24. Old Uncle Mark, Whatever our disagreement, I actually think you would be a fan of Chatard if you ever watched them. I'm not a Catholic but my wife and kids are and I adore the school.. I've often regretted not having attended there and felt some jealousy of my kids (even after writing the tuition check). These kids are quite often undersized but are fearless and will never back down. They will claw and scrape to the end...win or lose....most often winning. That ethos served my oldest well in college ball and, now, as an executive. I was fortunate enough to stumble into an athletic scholarship during college but my oldest son in 8th grade was a better football player than I ever was in HS because of CYO. In HS, he became even better.. Again, I think you would be a fan of our kids if you ever watched them Thank you. Bryan Miller

  26. If you have some "exceptions" to your theory, you need to post them so we all can see. It seems like you change your theory when its convenient. "Schools with lower enrollments and higher % of free lunches can't compete with the big boys.....unless they are a football factory...." Seriously??

  29. Still here. Dragons are very young this year. 4 seniors on defense and 2 on offense. Really should have beat DC, even with a ton of mistakes, it came down to a FG attempt. Brebeuf is a good team that gave our young secondary all kinds of problems. Time to head into conference play and see what we've got.

  36. This isn’t new information. It’s been stated here on the GID only about 1,000 times yet DT fails to mention it as the real CYO advantage. BTW, if there are 8 different North Archdiocese CYO teams in Indianapolis, they likely run 8 different offenses….none of them being Chatard’s. This isn’t Center Grove. Coach Doyle isn’t even allowed to speak to CYO kids or parents individually let alone direct what offenses they run. As some background, let’s also add that Chatard is lucky if they get 30-40% of their own CYO kids since they generally split them with Cathedral, Brebeuf, Lawrence Central, Lawrence North, North Central, and even Guerin. But again, like other posters, I’m not really covering any new ground in saying any of this - yet DT seems oblivious to it.

  39. I don’t like the word “soft,” since to me it implies less than 100% effort, and I wouldn’t accuse someone of that just because of the style of their offense. But there is no doubt that the game has changed dramatically. It’s now much more of a scheme, matchup, one on one game than ever before. Now, it’s all about getting the ball to players in space, so they can make a big play. Reminds me a lot of MLB these days, where record numbers of homers are being hit … along with record numbers of strikeouts. Both football and baseball now live by the big play. I halfway think that the reason is our video game, internet, text message, social media culture simply lacks the patience, and the attention span, to be effective at doing it the old way.

  41. The problem with us East fans is we’ve been overly spoiled by 17 seasons of tremendous success. I barely remember East football before 2004 because I didn’t have a reason to follow them. My love of high school sports didn’t begin until I was in high school. We went 7-5 my freshman year (2003 season) and then the team took off after that. I’m not going to get on here and bash Coach Vogel though. I know the guy and am aware of how much he contributed to the success of the team behind Coach Gaddis. To be fair to him, this team has the least amount of talent and depth I’ve seen (Again, I didn’t truly start following until 2003). We should’ve seen this downfall coming. I think we did but most of us didn’t want to accept it. On the flip-side, I’m not seeing the same amount of energy or swagger I’m used to seeing from East. I’m with @Olympian06 in that I also believe Gaddis would’ve figured out how to protect the lead last night and pull out a win. Regardless, this team was going to lose an HHC game whether it was last night or sometime down the road this season. The players are the ones that have to execute the game plan and they just seem to lack the talent to do so. My biggest concern about all of this is we have a very fickle fan base. When we aren’t winning, we don’t show up unless it’s the rivalry game against Columbus North. The new home stands that were built before the 2014 season, I’ve slowly seen them become less and less filled since 2018, maybe 2019. A bad East team is really going to hurt attendance. On top of that, there’s not a lot of excitement anyway because the students aren’t allowed to be. Not going to name any names for the reason why but, in my opinion, it’s ridiculous and only hurts us. Nevertheless, I’ll still be at East games when I can. That won’t change. And if we are going to fall off the HHC pedestal, I hope more fans of other HHC teams will join or return to this message board. I like the five of you or so who get on here and interact, but it would be nice to see fans of Seymour, Jennings County, New Albany, and Jeffersonville as well.

  42. They’ll get better coaching, nutrition, training, and education going to college early. Plus NIL money so why not go early if you can? we have selfish fans who care more about the high school teams then individuals so understandable why they might not like this trend

  43. This is actually a fairly common scenario, and the tip-off is that it was a QB sneak. By not coming set before the ball was snapped, the QB gets a rolling start … which is an unfair advantage. This is a foul. The more interesting question from the officials’ standpoint is: exactly what foul is it? The talk about stopping for 1 second is significant, but perhaps not for the reason you think. The QB was, in effect, in motion at the snap. His motion was illegal because it was forward. Even if he actually came to a brief stop, but not for a second, he would be considered to still be in motion. So, the proper call is illegal motion, not illegal shift, a live ball foul at the snap. Play continues until the down is over. But … There is also a school of thought out there with the philosophy that we don’t want to run unnecessary plays or replay downs. So, if you can call something a pre-snap dead ball foul — like false start — that is preferable. Proponents of that philosophy — including the rebel group’s leading proponent @JustRules — might call this a false start, on the theory that the QB’s movement was the “start” of the play, but the ball had not been snapped.

  44. You are a typical FC fan.....play a soft schedule so you can talk about your precious wins and losses, and complain when the competition gets ratcheted up to get better. If I gave a damn, I'd go back and find all of the mentions you have provided over the years about how much you love Bragg and the staff. You are the epitome of a Floyd Central fan. You know nothing of what you speak when it comes to personnel, you know nothing about what goes on in that locker room and in coaching meetings or at practice, but you sure seem to have all the answers. You provided numerous laughs among the coaches from your ridiculous rantings over the years. Voices from the Stands, starring Fkfootball. Go fill out an application and help coach since you know so much. But I know it's easier to just show up on Friday's, have a little bitch session with your buddies in the stands about how bad the coaches are, and then blast them sitting behind a computer screen.

  45. I ate food from the Parke Heritage concession stand and it made me crap in my pants by the end of the 1st quarter. When the Wolfs scored the first touchdown of the game, the fireworks display overstimulated me and the poop came cascading out like hot buttered lard through a sieve. It was a steamy August evening, perfect weather for wearing shorts. There were a couple of kids playing under the bleachers beneath me. The sounds of their confused and disgusted screams will haunt me for all of my earthly days.

  46. Hopefully this isn’t frowned upon but I thought it would be fun to create point spreads for some of the noteworthy games each week of the season and see what people think. It can seem too easy to pick winners in hs football in Indiana but with a point spread it’s a whole different story. I am attempting to cover all the “big” games I can but it’s certainly easy to miss a few with the large amount to deal with. This was not created to have people guess every single game (if you want to, go for it), but rather to garner discussion for games that perhaps had no other thread to be discussed in. Reply with as little or as much as you’d like. If you feel you know 1 game much better than the others let us know what you think will happen. Keep in mind I am creating these lines myself. If you believe I misjudged it badly please let me know and give your reasoning. I am creating these as I see fit, I have one favorite team who is not even included this week, no favoritism is used. This is being made to create discussion, nothing more nothing less, no hard feelings intended. Please take this lightly. I love this site and cannot wait for games to kickoff tomorrow night. GOTW: Cathedral (-14.5) at Westfield Ben Davis at Brownsburg (pk) Carmel at Louisville Trinity (-18) Center Grove (-27) at Warren Central Lafayette Jeff (-11.5) at West Lafayette Lawrence North at Avon (-5.5) Mishawaka at Mishawaka Marian (-3.5) New Palestine at Decatur Central (-5) Noblesville at Mount Vernon (-6.5) North Central (-14.5) at Fishers Penn (-3) at Valparaiso Pike at Zionsville (-15.5) Sheridan at Western Boone (-12.5) Lawrence Central at HSE (-19) LCC at Tri-West (-8.5) Homestead (-16.5) at FW Northrop FW Snider (-12) at FW North FW Dwenger (-20.5) at Fort Wayne Wayne Evansville Central (-17) at Evansville Mater Dei Columbus East at Whiteland (pk) Jesuit Brebeuf at Bishop Chatard (-29.5) Andrean at Merrillville (-9.5)
