  1. Give me a case of Zimas and some boner pills and I’ll show you performance enhancement. I swear to God I will

  2. I’d be willing to bet that most kids are referring to creatine and weight gainers. When asking kids if they use anything to enhance their appearance that leaves a lot to interpretation. “12% of boys reported using products to enhance appearance, muscle mass or strength” vs “12% of boys reported using steroids” would have been more in line with the clickbait headline. The author clearly doesn’t know the difference. And he refers to “one study” for his data set. A quick peek at his LinkedIn says he has “research experience”. This article might be the full extent of that experience. This is the actual cited reference from the article “According to a 2016 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, the prevalence of PED use among high school athletes in the United States ranged from 2.7% to 4.0%, depending on the specific sport.6 Another study found that 8% of girls and 12% of boys used products to improve appearance, muscle mass, or strength, and 3.3% of high school students admitted to using steroids.7 “3.3% of high school athletes admitted to using steroids” is the actual number. This is the cited study: Dandoy C, Gereige RS. Performance-enhancing drugs. Pediatr Rev. Jun 2012;33(6):265-71; quiz 271-2. doi:10.1542/pir.33-6-265 It’s from 2012. Not sure that it qualifies as “still a major issue”. Why did I waste my time going down this rabbit hole? I must be bored out of my skull this morning.

  5. It should have been left at 2 points to start with rather than the current 3 points. If you can move up a class and either win a Sectional two years in a row or a Regional one of two years then you are in the appropriate class…..insofar as the purpose of the SF was intended to be.

  8. Sheridan's turf work has begun. These pictures are from last Wednesday I believe. On Friday, I saw about 70% of grass completely gone. Also, the design for the completed turf.

  9. For those in the PLAC/MSC world. Steve Matheny a.ka. Clarksville Steve, passed away Sunday. Steve was Clarksville's biggest supporter. He attended almost every Football and Basketball game for the last 40 years. He was also known for making PLAC/MSC Football schedules. The last few years he wore out anyone who would listen that Clarksville should join the PLAC and would probably have what the schedule should be on a napkin or newspaper. It was a pleasure to know him for 6 years. He will be missed!

  10. As long as there is no undue influence, I support this. Coaches can leave for better opportunities, so why not kids? I like that it takes the IHSAA out of the process for determining whether a transfer was for athletic reasons or not. Why does it really matter? Coaches leave for better positions all the time.

  14. That is not exactly accurate. The IHSAA has been found to be a “state actor” in a number of legal decisions. It depends on the issue as to whether the IHSAA is considered an arm of the state, or a private association.

  15. Always been our forever home !!!! See you in a few weeks Excited to back home in 2a North, 219 Sectional !!! My Brothers!!! Literally been with HOF Coach Meeks from his 1st game in 1999 when he called a timeout and threw the kicking block back to the sidelines to WIN THE GAME with the 2 pt conversion for Victory with a Chris Yenna Belly if Im not mistaken. Film guy then, paid staff when student taught in 2003, OC in 2024 and counting......... Wouldn't have it another way. Goes for our DC as well, and Varsity Assistant in Coach Stevens, heck he was on staff my SR in 1997!! I've been known to deliver

  16. I'd be a little bit careful predicting future successful/rebuilding years based on MS classes. There have been many programs across the state that have crowned MS groups "state champs" before entering HS only to see that same group fall short of the ridiculous expectations people build based on the performance of 12-14 year old kids. On the other side, there have been unsuccessful groups in MS at AC - as recently as the seniors that started the state appearance run - that have gone on to earn success when it matters most.

  17. My top three (in order) are: 1. Michael Lindauer (Evansville Memorial) 2. Jordan Scheller (Gibson Southern) maybe a hair over a decade 3. Brady Allen (Gibson Southern) (Senior Year was really special) Jett has a shot if the coaching staff actually develops passing concepts in their offense other than "go deep".

  18. I don't think it was an overreaction. You can't say what he said. If he had left it after the gesture (which was weird in itself), then it would have been just awkward. This was more than awkward. It was creepy and unnecessary.

  19. All I know is this, a ticked-off administrator or coach from the sending school should have zero say in the matter. A system that allows them to have a say is fundamentally broken.

  20. Nah, I’m not there yet. Noblesville is always much better than their record indicates. They play a top 15 schedule annually.

  21. If you’re driving past North Central to get to Warren, you’re doing it wrong. BD/Warren are slightly closer geographically than BD/North Central. Just busting your chops. I get your point.

  22. You would have to admit this is a false equivalency though correct? With the sheer size of rosters and number of rounds in the NFL draft compared to the NBA, its an apples to oranges comparison. I am not saying your statement is wrong, but how you are choosing to support your statement is. Just my two cents.

  25. If Speedway refuses to travel to Lutheran for JV games, what are the odds they'd entertain trips to Linton?
    2 points
  26. Monrovia will bring back 6 on Offense and 8 on D, have to deal with Lutheran twice, and the Sectional seems brutal, but if any team can figure it out, it might be Monrovia. Tough schedule througout the year will help build this team. Week 1 vs Greencastle and Week 2 @Linton is always a great opener, then 7 weeks of ICC play. We shall see what the Bulldogs can bring to the table.

  28. The kid can do anything they ask him...they just need to ask him to do the right things. I'm not so worried about the whole route tree as I am route combinations and reads designed to defeat the defense rather than trying to beat the defense with athleticism alone. None of our QBs over the past 12 years can even tell you what a route tree is.

  30. Here are some thoughts: 1. I have witnessed too many kids to even count that have transferred from one school to another without having to sit out a year. I have seen everything from this school doesn’t have the specialty class I like, to kids supposedly being bullied with zero evidence of any bullying, to parents literally moving across the street to be in another school district, to parents renting an apartment in a school district just to say they lived there when they didn’t. 2. When does the school have the students best interests in mind when deciding to try and fight a transfer? I have seen where some kids are allowed to transfer without penalty and some where the school fought tooth and nail to try and make the kid sit out. It seems when the parents have money and threaten lawsuits and court, the school caves in 3. Finally, why is it that schools fight over a supposed athletic transfer but not over an academic transfer? At the the end of the day, kids need to put themselves in the best possible light to further themselves to go to college for as cheaply as possible, whether it’s thru sports, academics, or financial aid Since I graduated in the 80’s, the landscape is night and day different now. I was a hardliner on this topic until a few years ago and have softened my stance on kids transferring schools. I still get mad when kids take major advantage of the system and lie about why they want to transfer. I don’t know, need some more beers in me to clear my head….🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺

  31. Do you think the IHSAA doesn't regulate transfers now? Do you think having a 1 free transfer rule helps p/p schools more than public schools? I'm interested to hear your opinion. A rural school like SR probably doesn't run into this very often, but in Evansville and the immediate area we do. Titan32 knows the situations better than I, but a couple of years ago 2 Castle kids switched to GS. One had to fight the IHSAA all the way to the top. The other didn't. As I understand it, the only difference was 1 had some family support that allowed him to jump through the right hoops and the other kid didn't. I use that example only because it was 2 kids leaving the same school, going to the same school and at the same time. It was crazy. We've had a few kids transfer in or transfer out in the past couple of years. Some had to fight and some didn't This kind of rule eliminates the BS and takes the decisions from the hands of people who are sometimes not looking after the best interests of the kid (regardless of what they say). I feel very strongly that at Memorial we should NEVER block a kid from having full eligibility somewhere else, even if the reason for the transfer is purely due to athletics. Why punish a kid because he/she wants a change of scenery?

  33. We used to have one school wide one (totally parent ran)...it kind of died off with lack of leadership in the past few years. Individual sports one have taken it's place in recent years (again totally removed from the school). These groups are incorporated for purposes of 501C3 reporting and the school really wants nothing to do with it. From my understanding this is more the norm in the land of publics. Finding money can be challenging if a sport that doesn't have a strong booster group and makes a deeper than expected run in the playoffs. Said another way, the schools do nothing to raise private funding. In some cases Coaches choose to take it upon themselves.

  34. All those teams should like that sectional, honestly. First of all-- removing East Central cannot be understated... Mooresville gets out too? Huge.

  37. Ahh I was not aware of that - I thought both had converted to the 21st century ! Are SR and VL the only schools on EASTERN time as well?? (That's honestly how they should determine sectionals...if you are on stupid....er I mean Central time - then you all get grouped together!)

  38. Really tough draw for them. I saw your and @BTF's exchange on the topic. Going to be a tough challenge for them to get ANY of those teams even on a down year. As BTF stated, not necessarily a slight to Harrison as much as it is a credit to the Indy suburb schools and how good they've gotten over the years. Nothing would be better for Indiana football, in my opinion, than if Harrison proves us wrong and can do what we're assuming (based on previous data) they will struggle to do.

  40. Agree. I was thinking a 28-14 type game on an off year. That's not a slight on Harrison by any means. It's more of a testament of how good Indy suburban schools have become over the last 15 years. I like my idea better of sticking two FW teams in Indy and two in SB. That would have pushed Harrison to the northwest. Crown Point is no slouch, but that sectional would have been easier with Penn being pushed to SB/FW.

  46. 1. Didn’t say it was all athletic scholarship money. Academic scholarship money and forgivable grants are nice, too. 2. Indoor track is a thing in Indiana 3. Do some research into the cost of private HS tuition after the $7k state credit and other incentives. You will find that it is less than $6k/yr. If you choose the right school 4. Played a few years of 7v7 but that cost is nothing. No private trainers or coaches, no workshops, no paid recruiting consultants, 2 single day college camps (about $150 total). 5. Club VB is a killer (mostly due to hotels) but Title IX should make that a low risk investment in the future. (I offset 2/3 of that cost by coaching for the club) 6. Don’t make this an us vs them competition, dude. It’s possible to want every kid to succeed.

  47. I am still waiting on Doyel's apology/retraction article for claiming fans at the Indianapolis 500 would be the most irresponsible thing ever, that there is no way that college football could be played safely in 2020, that JJ McCarty was unworthy of anyone's Heisman vote and that Carson Wentz was the most selfish person on the planet. Dude is a fraud. But he is protected because he is a southpaw. A righty would have already been fired.
