    Is it just me, or does the Penn football program appear to be going soft? Seems like whenever this team is involved in a big game, the results are not very good. There has been plenty of talk here about Penn possibly going independent, and adopting a more regional schedule with additional big names from out of state.. Typically, a program will look for tougher competition when it is dealing from a position of extended strength. Penn doesn't strike me as a particularly strong program, given results of the past 5 years, and the lack of higher level talent moving on to the next level. Based on regular season scheduling and post season geography, Penn and the Duneland Conference are starting to look like more of a matchup as time goes on. The consolidation of Elkhart Central and Memorial give Penn the perfect partner to move west and create a new 10 team DAC. The Duneland didnt appear ready for Penn over the past decade, but the gap seems to be closing. Valpo, Merrillville, and Michigan City are all at Penn level today, and several other DAC schools are showing signs of improvement. With Mishawaka leaving the NIC, and the new Elkhart considering its own options and future, Penn is no longer in the drivers seat, and not necessarily in control of its own future. A move west to The DAC looks like a much better option for the Kingsmen than staying in the small to mid size school NIC or rolling the dice on Independence.

    Played at WW. It was a hard hitting fun game to get to play. Our kids battled. We had 19 on the sideline and they had 33. It was 20-8 with 14 seconds remaining in the game. Our kids played hard and showed some real potential for the future. To me JV is like my golf game, only remember the good shots so I come back to play again. We had some really nice moments against a school much larger than us that has had some recent success. Win-Win from a loss.

    Most importantly go to the Ale Emporium (County Line & Emerson) before the game and get an order of Hermanaki wings. Then go to Long's Bakery on Southport Road just east of Madison and get some donuts (cash only). You can thank me later.

    Game has evolved, so has technology, most of it is welcomed and important. Such as not having to dub VHS/DVDs, then use your own gas money to meet a coach halfway point at 6-7 a.m. to exchange film. Though as a Fan, you can see it as a game played by children, which I understand your perspective, but for me this is my PROFESSIONAL CAREER CHOICE, and yes Football is viewed as Co-Curricular in my eyes and my #1 job is to teach lessons associated with football's X/O's life skills. which Football is just 1 avenue used to communicate and teach said lessons.

    Just to elaborate a little more on this game - Probably the two most accomplished programs in the Wabash Valley over the last 10 years. I'm sure there has to be a sense of frustration for NV in this game. They've dominated all other opponents on their schedule from a win/loss perspective during Crabtree's tenure. Linton is the exception to that. They get physically overwhelmed, and not much can be done about that. Against other opponents, even if the NV talent is not as good, they can negate it with being sound in their approach and scheme. I'm sure the Linton people feel similar about a team like Southridge. Most years they are going to better than Linton, which is what makes a game like this year between the two even more frustrating. Sounds as though Linton had every opportunity to come away victorious, but did not. You still have to respect the fact that Linton has played a very challenging schedule. And really that is the best thing about this game for NV.....they learn a lot more about themselves in playing Linton than any other game throughout the year. They get the acid test when playing Linton. Even if this does result in a Falcon defeat, which is the most likely outcome, they know that they've played the best team on their schedule. I hope I'm wrong but until they prove otherwise, it is what it is. I will say that a program that has been as successful as NV will not take the field thinking they are beat. They have kids that expect to win, and usually do. Unfortunately, if recent history is any indicator, Linton is the exception to that rule. Linton 45 NV 15

    The issue I think they have to address is schools (or more likely they boosters) use this as a recruiting tool. Come to State U and the local car wash company will pay you $300k/year to be their spokesperson. Is that where we really want college athletics to go? The NCAA is a good model. The NFL and NBA's inability to create a sustainable minor league system like MLB and MLS and NHL and rely on the NCAA to be their minor league is ultimately the root of this.

    Definitely a big game for both teams.. I'm sure the Falcons would like to turn the tide on the last several years in this series. Linton has put over 50 on NV in 3 of the last 4 games..but I think last year's 34-7 Linton win was the biggest surprise of them all. I think most people thought NV would come to the Roy and get revenge on the 54-18 and 55-0 routs in 2017 and 2016. Linton came in 0-3 amid a lot of concern and questions.. but put up 317 rushing yards (357 total) and held a vaunted Falcon offense to just 75 rushing and 72 passing (5 of 14) in a 34-7 dominant Miner win. THe only loss NV would suffer til the state final game. Linton would lose in overtime to Ritter the nextv week, and get big margin W's over NK, ND and EG the next three weeks before finishing 5-6. The names are about the same for Linton coming into this meeting. Lance Dyer ran for 137 yards and 2 TDs in his first game back after a shoulder injury had him on sidelines the week before, but he was a WB not QB. Luke Lannan ran 19 times for 123 yards and 2 scores. Cash Howard got in the action with 40 yards on 10 touches. TRey Goodman was in his 2nd start as a soph QB, and was 3 of 6 for 40 yards. Devyn Robertson and Clayton Hauser each had a catch. Brennan Ellis returns at QB and presents quite the challenge to the Miner D. IN last year's meeting you could not ignore that game condition involved, and how that affected the Falcon offense. I think Linton played inspired football for sure...but I know the muddy and wet field wasn't the most conducive for passing... and Ellis was just 4 of 12 for 56 yards and a pick. The same conclusion could be said for Linton's passing game...but Linton was a run orientated team compared to the wide open attack Coach Crabtree has with Ellis at QB. And it seems 2019 seems to be no different despite having to replace some big names the last couple seasons-- Jonathon Kilgore (who caught all four passes complete from Ellis last year against us); Christian Myers (50 yards on 18 carries), receivers Corey Buchhaas & Kirk Carron and 2-way Linemen Derek Foncannon & Gage Woodard. Kilgore (8 tckls), Buchhaas (9 tckles) and especially Myers (14 tckls, 4 for loss) were defensive studs for NV last year. Back is #52 Josh Little at LB. He ha 8 tackles as a soph against Linton, and 11 last year. He started on the line last year as well.. but I don't think he is this year.. saving him for Defense only perhaps. However I see 4 seniors on the Oline, 2 returning starters in RG Ethan Watson and C Kale Flynn. A huge Tackle in Junior Matthew Jackson (6'5 270). A huge difference will be with #12 Wyatt Reynolds on both sides of the ball. He was a transfer in last year who couldn't play until later in the season, and made an immediate impression. He was key to their post-season run coupled with Myers in the backfield. Ellis is also a potent runner, but only had 12 yards on 16 attempts last year.. He was held in check on getting out of the pocket, and sacked twice and accounted for 19 negative yards, but don't doubt his ability to run..and pass. BOth teams can light up a scoreboard and both can score quickly and from anywhere. Both defenses are going to be tested, and both likely to surrender yards. I've seen NV in a couple defensive formations.. so not sure on what they'll do against a Miner O that now passes with more confidence than in previous seasons. It still is close in rushing (189.33) Passing (138.33) for 327.67 per game. Little looks to be joined with fellow seniors Watson (#54) Reynolds (#12) and West (#24) and Ive seen a couple sophomores on the Dline with former LB starter as a freshman Edney (#44) and Rowe (#75). They'll have to contain a lot of weapons in Dyer, Lannan, Howard in the backfield, Puckett at TE, Hauser and Robertson at SE, and Goodman throwing and running the ball. Same scenario for Linton on D. Soph LB Eslinger (#2) merged as leading tackler, while last year's leader Lannan (#8) has been free to blitz and reek havoc. LInton has been using a 5 man front most of this season headed by Senior DE's Mongeau (#79) and D.Smith (#51). However...both Southridge and Sullivan put up big yardage in the pass game... 267 from the Raiders on 9 of 18...and some huge passing TDs, and 258 from the Arrows on 19 of 33. Sullivan did hit on a few deep routes but nothing went the distance. Still, the Falcons run the same type of wide open offense as Sullivan. Monrovia certainly didn't last week. It will be key to see if the Miners can pressure Ellis, but yet not let him run out of the pocket for huge gains. They will line up 4 wide, even 5 wide with#21 Lucas Cook, #24 Colby West, # 44 Carter Edney and #42 Nick Myers... and #12 Reynolds as well. There can't be blown coverages or bites for the run.. or it's a quick 6 for the Falcons. The Arrows QB I don't think is of the same running caliber of Ellis. Miner DB's will have their hands full-#23 House, #11 T.Dyer, #18 Robertson, #43 Howard..as well as #8 Lannan and #5 L.Dyer . Another area to look at are Kickers... I know Elmore is 10-11 with the one miss a block. I know NV's kicker is McKenzie Crowder...and I don't have any numbers on her. Another thing of interest for me is 2-way starters. Linton seems to have depth this year... 5 guys are always 2 way players...and a couple others are in rotations one way of the other. 8 or 9 of the Falcons play both sides of the ball...that I've seen. Will that play a factor. I know both teams are always in excellent football shape as always. I hope to have more Falcons stats in an update later in the week...

    Unfortunately the State of Indiana somehow believes that an Interstate Highway between Indianapolis and Evansville is more important than an interstate between Fort Wayne and Chicago.....................now you can get out of Indianapolis via interstate to the N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, & NW. In the meantime, US 30 from FW to Chicago is an ABSOLUTE nightmare.................and dangerous!

    Seymour has some decent athletes in the 8th grade. I'm not sure how that translates into V wins in 3-4 years. Juniors and seniors are a long way from 7th and 8th graders, a lot of things change in those years. I had SMS teams last week, and honestly I don't remember if they won, lost, or who they even played.

    Watched some the Elder Cathedral game on a stream. Cathedral looked very good and probably should’ve won the game. Looking at Chatard’s scores they look like the real deal as well. Gonna go with cathedral 21-14 though

    WW JV lost to Seymour 28-8. Our JV is kind of hard to ever get a sense of because we play alot of main young kids on Varsity (McPheeters for example). I will say our Jr high doesnt look good (I'm no coach I just see scores) but development and how they mesh with grades around them are more important as far as our future goes.

    http://www.calpreps.com/cgi-bin/2019/project_matchup2.pl Why? Curious what have you seen from Bombers to state that? Clearly the Transitive Property of Football puts the needle in the Bombers direction. Webo gave up 42 points and lost Rensselaer gave up 14 and won. Webo QB would be a handful. Love Webo's FB as well Size is similar based on film I have. (we have Webo/Western film) I would like to think we do some things that make it difficult for other teams as well.

    LOL the wolves aren’t even sectional favorites. They have played teams with a record of 1-8 I believe. Lutheran in regional right? Panthers did same to Austin Petrillo last year on a kickoff 25 yards away from play. He never went back in the rest of night. Typical Riverton Parke tactics. Have always been , and always will be the little brother in Parke County. Hope the falcons and wolves put up 120 if that’s how they play.

    You called me a liar from the confines of your home (which is lame) for an accusation I made of you. I then proved it by providing your exact comments back in March of this year that you did indeed do what I said. You could have owned it...could have apologized for the name calling....and stated your were obviously mistaken. But to no surprise, you didn't. And that speaks volumes..... You called someone else a liar, when you got caught in a lie yourself. Step up and own it....be a man.

    "other than a bad fourth quarter against Southridge, they could be 3 - 0 themselves." If we throw out the fourth quarter against Southridge, Linton loses 12-7. That was the score at the end of the third quarter. I have seen this or we gave the Southridge game away from several post made by Linton fans. Linton lead for less than 5 minutes of a 48 minute game. Southridge lead for over 27 minutes.

    As far as endzone camera's go we have one called "Hi Rise" It's just okay but I would not recommend. I feel like other people have better setups for the money IMO. Unfortunately Hudl as a company has been making some disappointing decisions all around lately.

    #22 for Western was a very good athlete. It was good for our guys to see them have success in pass game in week 2, helped them stay focused this past week on their Trip Flood package Western runs and of course the play action. Western and RCHS both run a version of the Gun Single Wing, with slight variations of it respectfully. We did a great job on the pass against them, held Western to 4-16 for 28 yards. They had a couple of 10 yard outs they dropped, but we were right in position on their vertical games. Webo QB still is the TRUTH, just saying
