  1. I just got a chance to read this and I am so thankful to be able to meet people like this and work with some top notch school systems. A Positive Story.docx In this strange unpredictable world of Covid-19, I have a very positive story I would like to share with you. Last week my team, the Rensselaer Central Bombers prepared very hard for our next opponent, the Lafayette Central Catholic Knights. We were scheduled for a major Hoosier Conference showdown to be played at their place. My team came to school wearing their game jerseys all fired up for the big game. At 9:00am after my fir

  2. Just wanted to give a hug shout out to the players, coaches, cheerleaders, and fans from Eastern Hancock last night. After the tragedy of having one of students passing away in the stands before our game last week, the EH faithful brought a sign to the coin toss honoring her. These kind of acts are what makes the game worthwhile. Need more of this kind of being humane to one another on and off the field.

  3. considering 95% of the "drama" and "reports" stems from that section of the website that truly serves no purpose, @DK_Barons pulled the plug on it which I fully support. It truly has turned into a personal political playground for about 7-10 users and continue to go around and around and then it goes too far and lots of energy is used to to moderate that section that serves no purpose to our sport of Football. Coach Tim Adams original foresight into that section was a place where you could put on blast your favorite sports teams and players and to a lesser extent a place where fo

  6. I think there are more than a few P/P supports left. That said, the same old arguments year after year got old and only takes a page or two to burn out now days when it comes back up. Perhaps everything that can be said regarding contraction has been said as well, I'm not sure. I think the GID has played a large part this season it helping to coordinate Covid Replacement games....that is a huge value add in my eyes.

  9. Numerous players on our team have been hit by “close contact” quarantine about 4-5 times this season. (Not to mention the regular injuries.) We have had a cancelled game and opponent changes as late as Wednesday, so this has been a difficult year. Please keep in mind no matter what we are going through, we have an impact on these kids. The tweet below has been the a bright spot for us this season.

  14. Wanted to take a second and give some props to the Fairfield Falcons and their 8-0 undefeated regular season. Heck of a job by Coach Matt Thacker going 8-0 in his third season at Fairfield. After going 1-9 in each of previous coach Bob Miller's final seasons, the Falcons went 0-9 in Coach Thacker's first season in 2018. That season Fairfield only averaged 3 points per game on offense while giving up 55 points on defense. Last year saw improvement to the tune of a 6-6 record and a sectional championship appearance. This season, the offense has averaged 38 points per game while th

  15. Congrats to: 6A Westfield 5A runner up in 2013. 5A champion in 2016. Now a solid contender and the sagarin favorite in 6A to represent the north at Lucas Oil. Jake Gilbert is building a powerhouse program. They ran the table in the HCC including an OT win over the pre-season favorite Brownsburg. And it appears he’s doing it like Eric Moore, as football up and down the school system is very successful. 4A Mooresville Only an OT loss to 5A #2 Whiteland has kept them from being #1 or #2 in Sagarin 4A.

  16. The fact we are having a season at all, to me, in light of all the earlier naysaying and the fact that some school systems literally were declaring that there would be no fall sports is, frankly, nothing short of miraculous and will always be what folks will remember about this “year that almost wasn’t”. With that, the season is far from over and the virus might still lay a heavy hand on what the final outcome of the championship season might look like.

  18. Imagine if you @DT were not seen as the thin skinned one, and rather, all of the people whose feelings get hurt just read your commentary for what it is. I do not agree with a lot of what you post, but that is actually a good thing. We need more positive disagreements in our society, rather than the, "You are wrong, you suck, so shut up and go away!" mentality that has infiltrated so many areas of our lives. Imagine where our game would be today if there were never any dissenters and everyone was ok with just going with the flow. Kuddos to you and your unpopular opinions Mr. @DT!

  20. What is the point of that statement? And no, I didn't know (personally) that Southridge has a 2A enrollment. Is Southridge in the 3A tournament? Why, yes they are. Doesn't matter if they have a 1A enrollment. I don't keep track of 320 teams enrollments. But if they are in 3A, why do I need to say they have a 2A enrollment? The bottom line is they are playing in 3A. Dude, what exactly is it that you want???

  21. That's pretty crappy to say DT. One of the kids that played JV at Winamac In 2017 is now defending yours and my freedom in the military. That one that played this past year is going to college to be a cop. All four of the kids that played JV here are outstanding young men. If you have a daughter, they are the type of boys you would want her to date And marry.

  22. I believe that there are some on this site that overestimate their importance. Arguing to argue kind of ruins the flow of a thread...there were a lot of valid points until personal attacks come into play I try to respect all in here and accept their point of view...Many here do not. Maybe the administrators need to set up permanent conference threads so people can talk about what they want. Maybe some want to have debate over general football topics. Jeeze

  25. I’m surprised that someone hasn’t. I was never a believer in school extracurriculars (including sports) as regards keeping kids out of trouble when I played simply because I was never going to get into trouble - it just wasn’t part of my make up. Admittedly, the fact that sports allowed me to go to college was a bonus, though. In the rear view mirror of life, having raised kids and seeing others grow up with them, I now have little doubt that sports and other extracurricular activities are an absolute salvation for many. I’ve seen more than a few kids that fell into the cracks of life

  26. Last night, after a hard fought game, Jasper lost its first SIAC game since 1978. That is 42 years between loses in the SIAC. For perspective, the median age in the US is 38 so over half the people in this country weren’t alive the last time Jasper lost a SIAC game. That is a phenomenal accomplishment and a testament to the hard work and dedication players, coaches, and parents have made over that time. Congrats on the accomplishment and to the next 42 years.

  27. Two years ago Fairfield played a varsity schedule with basically no seniors except one (he was a cross country runner), a small handful of juniors, a nice group of sophomores and a handful of freshmen. They gave up 493 points and scored 27. They gave up over 70 points twice and over 60 twice. This current group of seniors that are 8-0 never quit. Coach Thacker has done a remarkable job.

  28. I’d have to agree. I was just telling my wife last night that just a few years ago they were on the verge of not having a team and I think they may have only played a JV schedule that year to undefeated this year. Great story.

  30. not even close to what kids feel They want to play, they do not care the level. They enjoy being part of a team, other amazing factors that go into this great game. We have had many seniors who are just great kids, but not very good football players, however, they have a blast, great teammates and play the game as hard as they can, even on JV. But sometimes with our roster, those SR allow us to get a 3rd game in for the week with our "C" team playrs. I know the person started the thread is more looking at it from huge school perspective.

  34. Exactly right, MC. ...and even if the newspaper finds out, no news organization is going to post the name of an underage player who is ineligible for the local football team and detail why he is ineligible. Under 18 folks are rarely named in news stories... Its just not something you do to a kid.

  42. Good move. And good riddance. For a quality guy like Trojan Dad to be lost to the football forum because of some OOB shennanigans is preposterous. I often thought it was just a race to see who could stack up the most posting points on the scoreboard. There is not much to moderate any more on the football forum. There are no high level extended fights or arguments. Its quite peaceful actually. Might be time for me to crank up some fresh contraction talk. That always brings some of the beasts out of their dens.

  43. Those are all definitely some good stories.. I have to throw Silver Creek into that mix. They were a brand new program 8 years ago. They just completed their first undefeated season and conference title in school history. Naturally, they get rewarded with a 7-2 East Central visit for the first round of sectionals, but that is for another thread 😆. Congrats to Coach Papenhaus and co.

  47. I am hoping not to speak too much out of school (and yet I will). My kids played at Chatard some years back but I have been around long enough that I think I have some sense of the ethos for kids at Chatard. My oldest son played against Merrillville at the St Joe Camps for some years back in the day. His comments would be long outdated and unhelpful in evaluating Merrillville these days no doubt. Nonetheless, Chatard’s goal is to win (fairly, btw) every possible game placed in front of the kids. Maybe it’s a regular season game. Maybe it’s a Sectional. Maybe even more...
