    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 flag football program.

    Evansville Reitz has to be a top contender. The bowl is pretty sweet but not the best venue for opposing fans.

    this is the best post in this thread Turning down an FBS offer to walk on is probably not a great move. But if money is not an issue (and with some families, sometimes that is the case!) it's not unheard of. The thing most don't know is the scholarship offer percentage to each athlete. It is likely to be very good at an FCS school. Maybe even a full ride. But it may only be 50%. Walking on at IU may actually be cheaper than playing d2, d3, or NAIA. Making a blanket statement that it's a bad idea is just uneducated.

    The comments about farming and manufacturing by Bloomberg are illustrative of what created Trump, and obvious that the D party has not learned any lessons from 2016. What I have seen of the debates, and stump speeches by all of them clearly show they're pandering to people where they're already going to win. Honest question does Bernie's message play in OH, PA, MI, WI, states anyone has to win?

    Spent last night at the Wyndham in Westfield, apparently there’s a big soccer show case at Grand Park. You’ll be happy to know I saw many folks of Asian descent at the hotel, apparently paying for Grand Park supersedes the dangers of Corona Virus. I went ahead and drank copious amounts of Knob Creek rye, just to be on the safe side.

    I love this idea. The only reason these kids don’t have a shot at the NFL is a provision in the collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the players. Other kids their age have the right to go out in the world and try their hand at their chosen pursuit. Why shouldn’t they?

    For the life of me, I cannot understand why so many people are so eager to post before school makes announcements. It is so baffling.

    What about a kid who opts for a smaller school over a D1? My daughter had multiple D1 offers and opted for Marian. In her words "dad I don't want this to be a job, I want to experience college as well." Smaller schools offer varying degrees of that. When she went on her visit, she said "it just felt like home." I told her all along forget sports, find a school you would just like to go to school at. We all knew there was no million dollar contract at the end of this rainbow, Softball was a means to an end. As I've stated many times, Marian University is the best college athletic program in the country you've never heard of.

    According to 247, Indiana has 10 players who have agreed to accept the PWO opportunity. 1 is a kicker, 1 is a LS. That means 8 are position players. 10 a year is a good number. Even if they took a few more, it would be good as 2 are special teams and if you use the average % that scholarship classes lose players over 4 years, that number of PWO position players is likely 6 at best. Coach Allen is smart to offer PWO to players he has seen on film and knows what kind of player they are and extend his connection to more Indiana HS’s. The other way to reach 125 man full capacity roster is take walkons who just show up Frosh year and you get to see for a day or 2. NAIA programs who can basically offer an unlimited number of players and have grant money to offer that pays for most if not all of their school is a much bigger detriment to the small schools you are bent out of shape about.

    You're still missing it. The number of teams they've decided to go to is not the significant part. The significant part is that they're using the playoffs to make the regular season better. You can only do that with a qualification format or, to a much lesser degree, seeding because, otherwise, regular season games have no connection to the playoffs.

    When you refuse to acknowledge the very words you post, there is no point for anyone else to try to reason with you. You're being willfully ignorant. And that's fine. I'm just not going to invest a ton of time explaining why you're wrong when it is self-evident to anyone who reads this thread.

    I think you’re still not getting my point and I apologize for not being able to state it more clearly. The lesson we can learn from MLB on this topic is that an effective way to increase the competitiveness of regular season games is to tailor the post-season process to the goal of making more regular season games meaningful with respect to playoff qualifying. That’s the lesson we can learn, and that’s the only point I was trying to make.

    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/video-shows-black-woman-shouting-she-is-uncomfortable-by-too-many-whites-at-uva-multicultural-center A video shows a woman announcing that she felt "uncomfortable" by the presence of white students at a new Multicultural Student Center on the campus of the University of Virginia. The clip of the incident was shared Wednesday on social media by the Young America's Foundation, a conservative youth group. "Public service announcement," the woman, who appears to be black, said as she paced in the center. "If y'all didn't know, this is the MSC, and, frankly, there's just too many white people in here, and this is a space for people of color, so, just be really cognizant of the space that you're taking up because it does make some of us POCs uncomfortable when we see too many white people in here." "There's a whole university for a lot of y'all to be at, and there's very few spaces for us, so keep that in mind," she added. The comments were met with applause by people not visible in the video. YAF confirmed to the Washington Examiner that the group obtained the clip from the Twitter account @WafaFlafa_Flame, which lists UVA in the bio field. YAF also said the original video source was deleted on Wednesday. The video has hundreds of thousands of views and grabbed the attention of Rep. Chip Roy, a Republican from Texas. "Hey, @UVa, this is what a 'multicultural center' causes. More race-based thinking and segregating. One of many reasons I have not contributed to UVa in 20 years (which of course means not on the most-favored list)," he said in a tweet on Wednesday. The Washington Examiner has been unable to verify the identity of the woman seen in the video or if she has any affiliation with the university. University of Virginia spokesman Brian Coy confirmed he is aware of the video before forwarding a statement that outlined the goals of the Multicultural Student Center. "I believe deeply that we need to build a community that is not just diverse, but also inclusive," read part of the statement provided by Coy. The Multicultural Student Center at UVA opened this week is intended as a "student-centered, collaborative space that supports underrepresented and marginalized communities, while cultivating the holistic empowerment of all students." Yet she isn't racist? So a POC (People or Person Of Color) is now a thing/class? And I was so close about a decade ago to being colorblind......

    The grow them big up there. All those big bovine's that are up on all the restaurants have to be put up and taken down everyday. The treat replica's of Babe the Blue Ox the same way we treat the flag. Hence why they are so big.

    I believe that's what he was saying. The cost difference can vary as well. I know a football player at Franklin who was given enough scholarship money likely due to his ability to play football (he's a good student too) that he's paying very little to attend. My son had a friend who was a good swimmer and recruited to Wabash. His academic scholarships, grants, and work study got him down to $14k/year. He was also recruited to UIndy and looked at Purdue but received no scholarship offers from them. Purdue would have been more expensive than Wabash for him.

    I’m so happy with that. Football is very important, we all know that, but this whole sports dynamic is for the kids and not us. Sure, it’s fun to draw up maps and postulate scenarios that border on the insane, but it’s really about making them better people through sport.

    The question asked about CG, BD and WC was "where's the talent?" The question was based on the fact that The Attached Indiana 2020 Top 50 Prospect list only includes 1 player from the 3 schools "combined" Its almost unfathomable that BD and WC both have not a single player on the list. Yes, talent is cyclical, but this surely is an anomaly. With regards to CG, there is a huge stable of talent in the lower grades. 2021 looks a bit thin for the Big 3 as well. https://247sports.com/college/bucknell/Season/2021-Football/CompositeRecruitRankings/?InstitutionGroup=HighSchool&State=IN https://www.scout.com/Season/2020-Football/RecruitRankings/?InstitutionGroup=HighSchool&State=IN

    Definitely not true. For the longest time LN and LC would not allow Chatard or Cathedral to use their football stadiums. Both schools recruit students (and thus athletes) heavily in Lawrence Township (Cathedral lies in the district boundaries and Chatard is very close) and the athletic staff of both schools don't appreciate their potential athletes getting poached from the LT middle schools. I don't know if that relationship would prevent them from wanting to join a conference with them, but I do know the Lawrence Township schools are very happy and very much a part of the MIC. They have no interest in looking at any other conference.
