    This REALLY bothers me. The stance is an absolute fundamental. Imagine a Little League baseball coach not teaching the kids how to stand in the batters box. Just the ramblings of a 35 year offensive line veteran...

    We need to do a better job of educating our young people on drivers education.... I have seen in the past 3 months a huge increase in the number of student athletes dying in car accidents. We lost 3 young people at North Central, Then Terre Haute lost a student, then East Central and now most recently, KeShawn Smith of Bethany Christian. Admittedly, I do not know the specifics behind each accident. In North Central case, excessive speed was the issue, I read in KeShawn's case his vehicle crossed the center line. I think we need to take a long look at our drivers education process. When I was in school, you had to log hours upon hours in the car with the instructor. Nowadays, parents are just signing off on drive time hours and kids are getting behind the wheel. I had to have a discussion with a student this year while I was at NC about stopping when the school bus arms where extended - even if you are on the other side of the road. I do not know the answers... but I am saddened and sickened that we are losing so many young people behind the wheel and I am left with 100 unanswered questions in the aftermath of devastation.. Its been 6 student athlete related deaths behind the wheel in Indiana since December that I'm aware of. Players reading this forum. Please slow down, Please wait to send the text, wait to change that song on your phone, Please do not drive distracted. We love you and when we lose you, please understand a piece of us dies as well. When I was notified by Kegan's mother he has passed, I collapsed, my soul and spirit was crushed. I can honestly say that it changed me as a coach, and as a man. Speaking at his service was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I know that I never want to hang another jersey in my office of a player we lost too soon - We need to do a better job as educators, parents, and adults of helping our young people understand and respect the privileged of driving. We need to take the extra time as parents to make sure we are truly preparing our young people as they get behind the wheel. We need to do a better job...

    http://www.sullivan-times.com/news/article/id/31128 Congrats to Brad Hudson! Brad was approved to be the next head football coach at NC ... Brad was a valuable member of my staff while I was at NC! He will do well for the TBirds!

    I don't normally post a lot on here, but this has me triggered... How is PABLO SANCHEZ a 5-seed? Pablo was a character in the OLLLLLLD Windows video game "Backyard _____ (fill in the sport)", and he was literally nicknamed the Secret Weapon. He was basically Bo Jackson. Also, check out that belly. He was promoting positive body images for us fat guys two decades before it became a big deal.

    Have fun gentlemen! And hoist a few for me!! I'll be missing the clinic for the first time in 20+ years and it really hurts. My brothers and I are hosting an 80 birthday party for my dad. Priorities, right?

    Please do not tell me that this is the football forum, as I am already aware, but last night in little ol' Boonville, IN! Hoosier Hysteria is not completely dead! Bosse beat Heritage Hills 66-62 in front of 5,000+

    Until such time as the whole Mr. Football “thing” really gives serious and legitimate consideration to lineman it’s, as often as not, a glorified skilled position player popularity contest. Personally, I think Bell is probably a better talent BUT Notre Dame didn’t....they chose Kiser. My guess is that they know a helluva better than I do. Until Purdue (whom I love) is spoken in the same breath as Notre Dame (whom I.....well....don’t love....I was going to make some snide comment about loving them like I love venereal disease but I won’t do that) then I think Notre Dame’s opinion trumps mine. That said, I’ve just never cared one way or the other about Mr. Football. Amazes me all the heartburn it causes folks.

    Pffff. Jack Kiser absolutely deserved to be named Mr. Football. Kid never really left the field and played lights out. if there was ever a chance for a 1A player to win it, it was Jack.... No 3A player has ever been named Mr. Football I believe and I think only 1 2A has been named....that being Jaylon Smith who is a star Linebacker for the cowboys. 26/27 years of Mr football....2 were for small schools. 1 of those 2 has proven to be one of the best linebackers. gimme a break *steps down off soap box* sighs*. Some of y’all schools need to chill with being entitled to awards and what not.

    I like it but I personally think it would be better if the success factor took four years into account instead of just two. I think we have seen small public schools get penalized for having a rare crop of great talent, having a great run, then getting bumped. This has been across the board in other sports. I think 4 years gives a better idea of the consistency of a program and its need to be bumped up or not.

    Eliminate these AD positions but then will create 5 new Asst. Superintendent positions at $100K to oversee these new Dean/AD positions. Usually how public schools work.

    I would agree the MIC is a great conference and easily the best in Indiana, but the best player on the best MIC team isn't automatically the best player in the state. Both are great players, but Bell wasn't "hands down" better than Kizer and finishing second in the voting wasn't a "crime".

    If daylight savings time really doesn't save energy and doesn't help farmers, then wouldn't it make more sense to lock in standard time than locking in the artificial daylight savings time? In another words, once we go back this fall, never change the clocks again. Worked for Indiana for a long time until it tried to keep up with the Joneses. Then again, maybe Indiana isn't the best state to use since, even as small as we are, we still have two times zones to start with.

    CG plays the MIC and Cathedral and New Pal are their non-conference games. Its a gauntlet. CG's first 5 games are Warren, New Pal, Carmel, Ben Davis and North Central.......

    Put the phone away. I wish the consequence for anyone under 18 who is caught texting and driving would be to lose their license for 1 year. I see it in our school parking lot every single day.

    So lemme get this straight. If a small school coach votes for a small school player it’s biased...but if a big school coach votes for a big school player it’s not?

    I believe in 1997, DuJuan Daniels won and he was from 3A Chatard. However, point taken that larger class schools have historically won the award. I'm not sure I have an opinion on that part, just wanted to chime in on the 3A comment Jack Kiser was more than deserving this year. Complete package and a beast

    Until you know what their jobs are not sure how you can do both. Deans are in the office dealing with students, academics, issues all day long They better have good and competent secretaries For larger schools this make no sense at all - the kids will suffer Hell, St Joe and Marian both have Assistant AD's and SB schools did not

    The ONLY way Hillary runs is if the Mueller investigation drops some bombshell that shows that Trump literally stole the election from her, through colluding with the Russians to hack voting machines in Wisconsin and Michigan and Pennsylvania. I rate that to be as likely to occur as Swordfish quitting his job to volunteer for Greenpeace to fight climate change.

    Bobby Cox is embarrassing as a leader. The IHSAA could have easily not granted the waiver. I agree that the bulk of the blame rests with the school and this kids parents but the IHSAA has quite a bit of culpability.

    My name is Jonathan Gess and I am a high school football coach in the state of Georgia at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy (ELCA). I have recently written a book about the struggle of pursuing the god of winning verse serving Jesus Christ whole heartedly. I did not write this as one that has it all figured out or am perfect, but one whose deep desire is to create a program that glorifies God but find myself struggling to not bow down this god of winning. As coaches, I think we all battle this god of winning. I wanted to share it in case anyone is interested. Thanks!

    How places still offer on site classrooms? I know at Rensselaer, Coach Meeks has continued the traditional Drivers Ed course as it was made for in the 80s. Full on classroom, videos, discussions, but what I think really is good is he brings in County/City/State police who come with the pictures of what fatalities look like, not from a movie, or cheesy video, actual photos from crash scenes and stories of HOW and WHY it happened. It is powerful stuff. He runs a session in Winter and Summer. How many families choose to have their son/daughters take it online?

    Am I the only one who finds "naughty language" like the least of our problems as far as retaining officials? I think this is a solution in search of a problem.
