  1. We believe that this move is going to be a good thing for PC football as well. We knew for a couple years out that the numbers for the 2019 season would be small as there were two classes back to back that never had a lot of numbers and resulted in 1 Jr. High team when they were in Jr. High. PC Football numbers should start to return to normal in the 2020 season as we expect 35-45 players in grades 9-12 for the upcoming season. Our youth program is strong and in 2019 we fielded two junior high teams, two 5/6th grade teams, two 3rd/4th grade teams, and had 70+ students participate in our k-2

  7. Well, Bosse and Harrison were the 7th & 8th place teams in the SIAC compared to Mt. Vernon and Boonville being 2nd and 3rd in the Big 8. We played both Jasper and Boonville and I would not characterize either as being "far more" physical than anyone in the SIAC except Harrison.

  8. So just to make sure I am following along I want to make sure I understand your post. You are saying that the MLB proposal of increasing the amount of teams that make the playoffs teaches us that we should reduce the amount of teams that make the playoffs in high school football.

  15. Seeing what friends on that side of the spectrum are posting, I think Bloomberg is becoming more of a target for attacks than Bernie is. It has definitely divided the party as far as which one they hate more. Crazy thing is, if they focus too much on one, the other could get the nomination. I still see a Hillary contingent raiding the party either just before, or at the convention.

  16. I found it interesting that no one has heard from Tulsi Gabbard since she sued Hildog, and after Tom Steyer was lauded by the pundits of having a good debate Friday night, he barely beat her last night. Bloomberg is the wild card in this thing. I will admit that I have found this whole process interesting. I think it will take some twists and turns along the way. I think Bernie will ultimately have the support to win the nomination, but the D's won't allow it, he'll get screwed again. He is the Democrat's worst nightmare.

Bobref took it in a different direction Major League baseball post season play used to be sacrosanct There was one division per league, and winning the grueling 154 game schedule won you a league pennant and a trip to the World Series When baseball expanded to two divisions per league, still only the four division winners advanced to the post season Now we have 3 division winners per league, two league wild cards, and it's still not enough BULL Hockey and basketball expanded due

  22. You can’t possibly be that unaware. Currently, 1 out of 3 MLB teams make the playoffs. This proposal would expand that to just under 50% (14 out of 30) and, thus, keep more teams in contention for the postseason longer, resulting in a better and more competitive regular season. An all-in format doesn’t have any teams “in contention,” because they all make it. Surely you can see the difference?

  23. Columbus HS, later North was a founding member, 1936, of the South Central Conference. At the time the conference included Greencastle, Connersville, Franklin, Martinsville, Rushville, and Shelbyville. Within a couple of years Greensburg, Indianapolis Washington, and Seymour joined. Washington left in pretty short order, like 3-4 years later. I'm not sure any of that qualifies as "Indy" connections, as I recall back in the day, there were clear distinctions as you headed up 31 between Franklin, Whiteland, Greenwood, and Indy. It's not like today when you get to Franklin, you're in Indy.

A tape recording of that speech has come to light and Bloomberg, now running for the Democratic presidential nomination, was heard discussing crime and minorities.

  27. It was a logical change that should have been in the rules all along. It won't likely happen very often but there is no reason to not allow it. I've been working college football for several years where this rule existed, and i don't remember ever seeing it in one of my games.

  28. In my opinion, the number of in-state PWO's you have in your program signifies the health of the program. If Purdue/IU has just a couple, it means that they have been losing so badly the last few years that high school kids - even though they were raised Purdue/IU fans - will go elsewhere and play versus walk-on for their favorite college. If the program is poor, its not worth the sacrifice of your body and your grades to play as a walk-on, and most would rather just enjoy being a student at that same university. If the program is strong, and has been winning, kids will take the PWO, an

  31. Why couldnt it be just as rewarding for that guy who never sniffed action? Maybe they are at their dream school, suiting up for the team they have wanted to play for since they were little? Every day they are out there practicing, weightlifting, attending meetings, etc....maybe the role on Saturday's isnt what they dreamed, but they are still there, living out the path that 18 year old them led them down. The same could be said for the guy that chooses a smaller school and ends up starting for 4 years instead of taking the WO route. It is rewarding because it was his route and his choice

  32. Quite frankly, this entire conversation is ridiculous. If you were a casual fan and ventured into this conversation, you might think that IU now has like 50 PWOs or something. This is not an issue worth debating. Until one of the coaches from Marian, St. Francis, UINDY, Franklin, Hanover, or anywhere else comes into my office crying the blues about not having players to offer, I will not buy it. There are plenty of kids, and plenty of schools for them to attend to play. END OF STORY!

  33. I don't understand your argument here: School A - "we like you and want you to be a walk on" School B - " we like you and want to offer you a full sholarship" Student-Athlete - " i want to take my chances at school A" The student saw what options they had and made a choice. Until Saban turns a kid down in order to boost Chattahoochee Valley Community College's program, i think this is a non-issue.

  34. This is the same model that Coach Frost is using at Nebraska and that Nebraska used in the 80s & 90s. The idea is to build a strong walk-on program, and get a few quality players out of it, but more importantly build excitement and a mindset in Indiana High School athletes that they WANT TO stay home and DREAM of playing for IU growing up.

  35. I too am disappointed and dumbfounded that a Big Ten coach would go out and try to get the best talent in the state on his roster. 🙄 First IU didnt recruit enough in state, now he is taking too many guys. Can't have it both ways. Some of these kids have D1/Big Ten dreams and this may be the only route to pursue those dreams. More power to them!

  39. Big changes to the MLB playoff process are being proposed now. What does that have to do with Indiana high school football? It just confirms something that some of us have been saying for years. If you want to make the regular season games more exciting, ignite fan interest, keep people and teams engaged to the greatest extent possible, you take steps to make those regular season games more meaningful with respect to post-season opportunity. MLB has obviously realized that changing the playoff protocol is a legitimate and effective way to do that. In order to make regular season games mor

But the officials who carry out and enforce said policies do not always exercise good judgment. Instead, they over-comply with the policy and follow it to the letter, which produces absurd results like these. Margot's situation is a good reminder that unthinking public panic about safety in schools—divorc
