  1. Hey all! I realize I've been lame and absent for quite abit. Life summons I guess, but football season is upon us...so I plan to be active as I can! Anyway... I was made away of the passing of Tom Dawson. The name prolly doesn't shake any thoughts, but he was very active as well as a moderator at some point as "ItIsWhatItIs" and before that as "USNAVRET". You might have been aware that he had been fighting cancer for a long time. He wasn't able to go to games last year because of the Covid scare. I feel badly that I hadn't kept in touch with him. But this medium was our main pla

  2. Ive had a small school epiphany Plus Im really starting to enjoy discovering a whole new world of small school football. If Im going to promote the sport, I have to promote the whole sport, not just segments.

  3. Certainly a candidate from a few for "contraction", it certainly looks like the Lancer football program has risen from the ashes: http://www.dailyjournal.net/2021/07/12/edinburgh_football_building_momentum_on_off_field-2/?fbclid=IwAR3Dd4apO5XWBpLLB9FI4ejJEhM2pbm_7HKNHRMG5kjeafbOTh9Qfl17LTs#.YOyg-PyTslM.facebook http://indianahsfootball.homestead.com/logs/Edinburgh.htm#loaded

My only reason for posting this is to break up the seemingly uninterrupted string of Tiger fan posts...that, and to give a shout out to Tango, patriarch of the eastern branch of the family tree who floated across Pigeon Crick awhile back and never found their way home...🤧 Hope your Summer is going well, Tango!

  5. In my opinion you get a great view from up top. If you are an OC the top view helps with game day alignments, coverages and depths of the 2nd level players. You can also find the game day "human tendency" Meaning my Jimmy is better than your Joe, so run the ball here or throw the ball there. Or a certain player over runs the flow of the run or jumps a given pass route, Thus you can make your adjustments accordingly to capitalize on these areas. As a DC it helps to know offensive formations, depths, and alignments. I will give our up top coach a list or I will verbalize what to

  9. IMO, @DT has done more to pump life into the GID than the next 3 posters anyone can name combined. The idea to obtain interviews from all these coaches was brilliant, worthy of TA. We all owe DT, whether you like the point of view he takes in other posts or not.

"Its become abundantly clear to me that maintenance of the status quo is the new mantra of the IHSAA, as well as the vast majority of fans, supporters, coaches, admins, etc. Change is neither needed, wanted nor desired. So Im cashing in all my activist chips at the casino cash station, and trading them out for fan chips, so I can enjoy the game like the rest of you and not concern myself with multipliers, contraction, realignments, reorganization, etc, etc, etc. This rainbow trout will no longer swim against the current. Getting too old and too tired for this. Im going with th

  13. This week the St. Joe community said good by to Fr. Cam a long time supporter of St Joe and who was on the sidelines for many years. He died at the age of 90 and was buried yesterday in his hometown of Cleveland. He touched many students and athletes lives while he was involved at SJ. Up until last year every game we talked before the beginning of the game whether it was home or away. It will be a little strange to look across the field and not see him there. RIP Fr Cam, you lived a good faithful life as a servant of Our Lord.

  14. GID Friends and Foes (Im sure there still lingering out there) 😁 I am letting you all know like I did the others on the leadership team a few weeks back, that come August, I will be beginning a new position within Rensselaer School Corp, going into El Ed PE which was my original degree 18 years ago, so will finally enjoy getting myself back into that, but leaving behind 13 years of running our Alternative School and Credit Recovery program which allowed me to be in front of computer 8 hours a day running our lab for all of that, so being a primary member of the leadership team made sense

  16. There used to be something like this in the Summer in South Bend. 4 teams from the area: South Bend City, East, West, and a team of Michigan kids. They would play two games in a day. I arranged for our crew to go over there to work one of those games one year. I figured this would be a piece of cake, low intensity, no pressure way to spend a day during the off season. Midway through the first quarter we find ourselves in a bench clearing melee when one kid spit on another. The rest of the game was brutal, one personal foul or unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after another. My crew never let me

  20. Hoosier High School Football Responses 1. I played at Evansville Reitz in the early 2000s. Went to Kentucky Wesleyan to play and had a shoulder injury and decided it was time to start my coaching career. I knew at a young age that I wanted to coach. I was fortunate to grow up around the game and fell in love with it very early. 2. Our first year here we really got the program jump started with that semi-state run. I really believe that success breeds success in a program and an athletic department. That 2012 team is one I’ll forever

Coach Shattuck and his staff look to build on that momentum despite the loss of a big senior class Question 1 : Year 1 of the consolidation of Central and Memorial could not have gone any better for you, your staff and your program. Can you walk us through some of the challenges and obstacles you faced during the integration process, and how you and your team managed to work your way through those challenges?

  29. I think the Qb play in the state game was really eye opening. I think that without weather factors really showed what this kid could do. He dropped some dimes. I think it’s easy to compare scores between teams ,and see the result of the state game and say that other teams would have been a better match up for Roncalli. That Qb was on a different level that day compared to what his tape would show. Hobart definitely sold out to stop the run game and did a decent job.. but the efficiency ( and big play ability)of Roncalli passing game was unexpected and no fluke, they just had some great c

  30. There's a growth explosion in Fort Wayne right now and most of it is up north in the Carroll district. Sitting at just over 2400 students currently, their enrollment will continue to climb. With a new 8 million dollar stadium and facilities and socioeconomics that could rival any in the state, it would be crazy to think that Carroll isn't trending up. But until they get that SAC title, they take a back seat to Snider, Dwenger, and Homestead.

  31. SF has opined since last March that Dr. Fauci is a brilliant bureaucrat who has the ability to spin both sides of the argument as the truth depending on the question or topic at hand. I have felt sooner or later he would get caught up in a situation like this where he was attempting to justify something questionable. (IMHO) In this situation before the Senate he realized he overplayed his hand relative to the funding Senator Paul is questioning, and his answer was a definite denial and a brazen rebuke of the Senator by telling him he doesn't know what he is talking about.

  32. Up here in the Fort, I'm looking forward to two games that first week: Luers vs Carroll.........We find out if Carroll is better than they were last year. If so, the rest of the SAC may be in trouble. Luers fans are as excited about this team as they have been in a long time. If that's the case, look for the Knights to give the big SAC schools some competitive games. Wayne vs Dwenger........Wayne is looking to get back to their championship ways with a state champion coach at the helm in his second year. Dwenger apparently is going through a rebuilding year. Could be a good game.

  33. I suggested to Coach Nowlen that The GID do an email blast to all current and former members, alerting them to the start of the new season, and inviting them to come back and check out the new content (interviews) Nothing has happened as of yet. My biggest concern, on behalf of GID members, is that without Coach Nowlen's involvement, it is highly unlikely that GID will raise the funds needed to keep the site running. We may very likely be in the midst of our final season here.

  34. I believe this - The Democrat party stole the 2020 election by using the loopholes in the voting system to place unchecked and unverified votes from people on the voter roles who actually didn't even show up to vote. Pretty hard to prove anything was illegal without physically going to each voter to verify. These loopholes in the system are being closed with common sense laws meant to ensure that anyone who can LEGALLY cast a vote can actually do it securely and those that don't want to won't have to worry about it. Case in point, my father passed away in 1988. When I showed up to vote

  37. Children? Really? Cmon Dude. These are young men. I think it is fantastic that affluent suburban communities are investing taxpayer dollars to enhance infrastucture that provides additional educational benefits for students Why should we penalize or demonize a great school district like FW Carroll because they choose to spend money on better facilities that will benefit their kids, and in turn enhance their property values? Youve been living in Hotdog land way too long my friend.

  44. If you want to talk to me about the sale, leasing and disposition of office buildings then I guess you somehow (apparently) have an “interview request”. With that, I have no interest in discussing it. I made that money years..even decades ago. I barely want to talk with my better half, why in God’s name do you think I would want an interview with you? Really not following your point.

  46. I will rephrase my tongue-in-cheek comment. One P/P team will eliminated quickly from the tournament, which I think is the IHSAA’s intent. The unintended consequences like you have mentioned are why I agree it would be a bad thing for football in the state. As it is, Chatard must win sectional in 2021 and 2022 or win a regional in one of those years or they would return to 3A.
