    Outside of 4A what class has really been affected as regards P&Ps? 1A-3A have the same teams. Frankly, 5A is simply the old 4A. Cathedral and Roncalli play in the first round of Sectional. The winner plays Columbus East (occasionally East Central or Reitz who remain in 4A). The winner of that game usually wins State. Columbus East was the better team this year and should win. The story would have been the same if they all were still in 4A. At this point, if P&Ps aren't winning it has nothing to do with the success factor. They simply are getting beat by better teams. If people want to magically attribute that to the success factor then you are simply disrespecting the quality of teams like Columbus East and Pioneer.

    Let's not lose sight of the fact Pioneer is one of the smaller 1A schools and are found where four cornfields meet. Its pure folly to say Pioneer would beat such and such Pioneer only wants to beat Eastern Greene in two days and that will be no easy task. They would be perfectly content being known as the worst 1A champs of all-time

    Thanks for this. I had not been able to put my finger on why Coach Streiff decided to retire. Clearly, it's the success factor. Must have been what ran Coach Scifres off, too. It's all coming together now.

    Didn't see the game but, once again, how did Woodlan "dominate the line of scrimmage " AND get 4 TO's but only score 14 pts? It would seem logical that Eastbrook had at least 4 more stops than Woodlan D since 2 TD's effectively cancel each other out on overall number of possessions in game.

    I was once told with a straight face, “We just have better coaching”. If everyone uses the same success factor, why do you think it targets private schools?

    its the best and worst weekend of the year all at the same time........ seeing the great numbers of young men compete and the amount of community support they have behind them and watching great football for almost 10 straight hours Followed swiftly by the realization its all over till next August........... its the true definition of bitter sweet Goodluck to all the teams and young men competing this weekend lets play some football!!!

    Cardinal Ritter moved to 3A based on enrollment. Their enrollment is slightly above Northwestern and Greencastle who remained in class 3A. http://www.ihsaa.org/Portals/0/ihsaa/documents/quick resources/021317Enrollments.pdf

    Don't necessarily agree that this weekend is due to the success factor. I think you are severely discrediting some of the public schools who have "gotten better and worked harder". What really has changed? LCC is usually a formidable 1A foe who played in 1A this year and just had a down year. Dwenger and Lowell are very familiar with one another and have played at the SS multiple times, Lowell was just the better team this year. To my knowledge Cathedral and Roncalli are the only p/p's playing up a class this year from their technical enrollment, Columbus East was just the better team this year. Good minds think alike, saw your post pop up as I was typing my reply and knew we would be saying the same thing.

    Who could Pioneer beat this year? Pioneer couldn't beat Brebeuf this year.

    A vote for Dwenger Dad to sing National Anthem at State Final games. I've listened to this 2-3 times now and it is awesome IMO!

    All I am reading about is the Ben Davis offense. How is their defense? Can Penn run 6 minutes off of the clock with each possession and march 75 yards? You know the old adage.... their team can't score if they don't have the ball. How are their special teams? Have they run kick offs and punts back for touchdowns this year? Have they blocked punts and extra point kicks? My heart says Penn will only lose by 10. My mind reminds me of Desmond Tardy and that freaking Warren Central game a few years back. Based on what I am reading, I should expect Penn to lose by 50. Either way, I am glad that I have one more week to watch this team play. Go Penn!

    An ABSOLUTELY class act!! And I know we throw that term around a lot. But I personally would like to thank him for helping make me a better official in the brief times we have met, both ON and OFF the field! I hopefully I will see him soon, and I will pass along this sentiment. Thank you for your helping move HS Football in Indiana forward Rick!

    Despite what he's on record as saying, the Commissioner would absolutely do a 180 if it turned out that there was a grassroots movement among the membership of the IHSAA toward seeding. That movement can only be led by the Indiana Football Coaches' Association. Quite simply, if the coaches want seeding, they'll get seeding. If there is no seeding, it's not the Commissioner's fault, it's the coaches. The Commissioner works for them. Not the other way around.

    I think the only way Woodlan wins this game is if Southridge fumbles the ball to Woodlan 4 or 5 times like we did on Friday night. The ball was just rolling their way! I'm rooting for Woodlan to pull out another upset this weekend! They are a hard nosed football team! They need to play defense as well as they did against Eastbrook! I think this will be a close game! Good luck to both teams and CONGRATS on your accomplishment!!

    Anytime you get a new coach their is going to be a transition period IU only lost 3 player (Blackmon Jr. , OG, Ananoby, and Thomas Bryant all to the NBA also were the top 3 scores from last year) IU does have seniors in Rob Johnson, Josh Newkirk, and Colin Hartman. Hartman is hurt yet again and begs the question should he really even try anymore? Johnson and Newkirk seem to be having trouble adjusting to Millers new system not a good recipe when they are also suppose to be the leaders. Juwan Morgan was injured last night again and could miss significant time, he would have made it more difficult on Howard inside defensively last night. The bright spots are Soph De'ron Davis 14 vs ISU and 17 vs Howard if he can give us 30+ min a game and stay out of foul trouble things are bright he could be 2nd team all Big10 guy. Freshman Al Durham and Josh Smith seem to be flourishing early in the Archie Miller system as said by many media guy.... they don't have Tom Crean coaching to unlearn (like Johnson and Newkirk). Another thing really hurting IU is Devonte Green lack of confidence he is in a full blown Soph Slump right now and he has the potential to be a great all around guard he he and pick it up and IU gets more contribution from Curtis Jones as well IU will be fine this year. The Howard game looked closer then it was because they honestly hit some ridiculous 3 threes late in the 2nd half the lead was as high as 18 for IU in the second half. The ISU game was a combination of many things from what I read but ISU shot 65% from three which they wont do again maybe ever in program history some you can blame of defense some you can blame on dumb luck. Think about really good 3 point teams usually hit around 40% for the game if ISU had shot that then they would have had 7 less 3's so that's minus 21 points the difference in scoring....... But thats still not an excuse despite making shots IU should have risen to the challenge Finally again transition year it happens IU has the 12th ranked recruiting class nationally for 2018 (guys Archie recruited) four 4-star and a really high 3-star and stand a real chance to sign 1 maybe 2 5-stars which (Garland or Langford might make that a top 3 class). This team has talent and they will improve trust me when I says they will win more games in Archie's first year than Tom Crean did in his first 3 years 6,10,12,

    Lord I miss those days, the entire community is better when the football team is a powerhouse. I really wish enrollment was the only issue but I think there are bigger issues then that. Bluejays always had an attitude that you'd have to kill us to beat us, but that seemed to disappear a long time ago. seems everyone is fine with losing and mediocracy these days. we got some real good kids now but they weren't trained and taught like we used to be. its a much more sensitive community then it used to be. Everybody wants a powerhouse program but very few people are willing to do the things that it takes.
