  4. thanks....sounds like we had different experiences as it was more than comradery for my children and myself. I guess my expectation is that good coaches should teach you more than the game, as most people will stop playing the game when high school ends, so what does a person really take with them to apply to life? I don't think it matters if the entity is a private or public, as I think we'd all agree that much of education occurs outside of the classroom. Maybe call it a tangible benefit, such as icing on a cake.

  6. My belief is that it should be a rolling 4 year cycle...not just 2. With a two year cycle in a specific window (what we have now)...you will always have MORE of these instances. Exactly what I think you are trying to point out. However it is also accurate that MOST of the success factor examples are p/p's. 100% true that a public can also skate through our current SF cycle rules. To keep the p/p apologists from soiling their diapers I heretoforth declare I shall always utilize Western Boone as my first example of any success factor flaw for the entirety of my existance on GID. If not, may my next bowl of lucky charms be without marshmallows! I hope this calms the hearts of the holy fathers 🤪

  7. Think it's more of a highlighting teams from last year. I'm not highlighting Lutheran because they are private....I'd highlight Linton I'm sure over last few years if they were in 1A. I think it's also highlighting teams that haven't moved up. Scenia webo and pioneer just like LCC have moved up. I'd be just fine if WW moved up due to success factor. I do however 100% think you should have to win at least 1 title in order to move up. 2 runner ups shouldn't matter. Just my opinion

  8. I find it interesting that folks are highlighting p/p schools as something that this would impact most. Realize that WeBo won three consecutive 2A titles in 2018-2020. Of interest is that Luers, who WeBo beat in their third-straight appearance, said nary a word about the supposed "injustice," but I do recall a few public school posters giving WeBo a hard time about that. Also, Pioneer had three visits in a row to LOS in 2016-2018 in 1A and actually had four visits in five years 2014-2018. In contrast, Scecina had only two visits in 2011-2012, lost both, and got bumped to 2A ... the only team, in the history of SF, to get bumped without getting a blue ring in the process. While Lutheran and Mater Dei COULD indeed join the club, the programs that have ACTUALLY benefited from the set periods re-evals are public programs.

  10. I would assume (and you know what that means) that the last two years would be used instead of resetting every two years. Think about how absurd the SF currently is. We don't know if Mater Dei has achieved enough success points to be bumped up to 3A. Despite being a runner-up in 2021 and winning 2022, if they lose their regional game this fall, they will remain in 2A. A rolling success factor puts them in 3A for the next two years, regardless of what they do this fall.

  11. I think taking a preferred walkon is great for some tweeners and not so good for others....it depends on many many factors. For example, I might try to persuade some kids to take the DII or NAIA money especially if the school is strong in a field of academic interest for the kid. Getting on the practice field for an FBS school and starting at an FBS school are two different ball games.....so it really depends on a kid's goals are what the right choice is. I am sure Clay made the right choice for him.

  14. I have just been designated to fix the conference realignment issue in central Indiana. By the way of breakfast and a round of golf with all AD’s and principals of the schools, everyone is on board and there are no more hard feelings. Conferences are now set based on enrollments, location, and competitiveness in not only football, but in all sports. Here we go! HCC: Carmel, HSE, Fishers, Noblesville, North Central, Westfield, Zionsville. With the departure of Avon, Brownsburg, and FC, HCC adds Carmel and North central. It becomes the true Northside conference of Indy. HCC also becomes the best conference in the state in all sports MIC: Avon, Brownsburg, Ben Davis, Lawrence Central, Lawrence North, Pike, Warren Central. The “new” MIC adds Avon and Brownsburg. This conference is able to keep many of the same great rivalries that have always been there. Plus the great rivalry of the 2 suburbs on the west side. Southside Conference: Center Grove, Columbus North, Decatur Central, Franklin Central, Perry Meridian, Southport. With Conference Indiana folding, the Southside conference is created by CG. They take some of the CI schools and mid state schools to form with the addition of FC as well. A true Southside conference bringing back old rivalries and close travels. CG will start off being way ahead on the gridiron, but give it some times and FC and Columbus with figure out competition in helping them for the future. Decatur will rise as well, as their enrollment is almost at 6A level. Mid-State: Bloomington North, Bloomington South, Franklin Community, Greenwood, Martinsville, Mooresville, Plainfield, Whiteland. With Perry and Decatur going back to their traditional roots, the Bloomingtons slot in nicely to the ultra competitive mid state conference. Very similar sizes of schools all coming from nice communities who back athletics. With Whiteland growing, look for them to potentially reach out to the Southside conference down the road. 3 out of 4 of these conferences are under 8 schools. This is perfect from a football standpoint in allowing availability for non conference matchups. It’s too bad something like this couldn’t be developed in the future. What are your thoughts? Where did I go wrong? What changes could be made? Are there other schools that could fit? Only 5 more months until football season!!!

  23. I don't think you can convince anyone it's the logical answer if you don't have proposed details on its implementation. I'll stick by my assertion that it's a nice catchphrase with no practical application for Indiana high school football.

  28. I was just giving the breakdown of how many football schools fell in each classification. Not an actual proposal. I started to type a longer post but figured no one really wanted to read it. But since you asked (not really, but just go with me on this...) Those breakdowns could go a few ways. Top-down. Use the 1400+ hard cap for 5A/6A. That leaves 248 for 1A - 4A, or 62 per class if divided evenly. 6A would have 32 and 5A would have 37. Bottom-up. Use the under 325 for 1A - which leaves 50 schools for 1A. Go ahead and make 6A top 32, which would leave 235 for 2A - 5A, or around 59 per class. As a math guy who comes from a small town, I kind of like the 'floor' of under 325 is 1A. 50 schools. Then make 6A the biggest 32 and 5A the next 48. This leaves 62/63 for 2A, 3A, and 4A. What makes basketball so "easy" is they have 16 sectionals and they really don't care about # of teams. There are 5, 6 7 and 8 team sectionals and no one bats an eye. If 5A were 48 teams, that makes 6 team sectionals. If that were the case, should the bye teams face each other in week 2, or both go on the road vs week 1 winners? Competitive balance is important IMO. But then again we're talking about an organization that uses ping-pong balls, so maybe it's not that important???

  29. Personally, I think that we should get rid of the success factor all together. I'll never understand punishing future teams for the successes of those that came before them. I don't care if you're a public or private school, you classify based on your enrollment and leave it be.

  30. I’m one of those posters from back in the day. And will say, Reitz should make a run this season. thing that I will say about the next tier is this. Look at who plays where. Lincoln played most of their games from those tiers at home (Reitz, MD, North, Memorial). This year they play them all on the road, with a game at Harrison between North and Memorial (ask Jasper about playing there). Truth is, Lincoln could quickly fade into the bottoms of the conference if they can’t figure out winning on the road against quality opponents.

  31. No troll. Just not convinced last year or this years Panthers have a big gap on the competition. SWI has had some dominating teams in recent years. I would not put last years Reitz team in that group. They could prove me wrong in 23’. They certainly have a lot of talented dudes Memorial and Vincennes should have great QB play and lots of good athletes around them. North has dudes if they can ever figure out consistent offense. Jasper and Castle are always tough to play, especially on the road. MD will find the pieces by rivalry week and possibly have a say in SIAC title.

  32. Clay Conner, a 6’5” Quarterback and Safety out of Boonville, has committed to play with the Indiana Hoosiers football program next season. Conner is being recruited as an ATH, and plans to play on the defensive side of the ball. He committed with the program on February 25th, 2023. Full story with quotes from Clay at: https://southernindianasportsnetwork.com/2023/03/03/boonvilles-clay-conner-commits-to-play-football-with-the-indiana-hoosiers/

  33. I'm with Screagle here...they had a great season given the depth of the conference last year. I have learned over the last dozen years or so that sometimes it's more about the depth of the field year over year.

  38. Have some unique perspective on Beimemy, as I have a real good friend who is good friends with Chiefs former QB coach, who is in NY last year and didn't have a lot of great things to say about Biememy from his time with KC. Interesting enough, same coach interviewed for all 6 NFL openings and had some interesting things to say about 3 teams for sure: Arizona, Colts, and Texans. Believe it or not Texans he felt were really well ran organization now that they got rid of some guy a year ago, they had their stuff together and could see them make huge steps moving forward. Colts interview, was told he couldn't do anything with the defense or special teams and that those staffs were locked in and couldn't be touched. Arizona, DUMPSTER FIRE. New Owner was an idiot, literally asked the coach this question, "What are your thoughts on President Trump". Then called him a midwest liptard, assuming he was being from Chicago, then went on for 90 mins about politics, turns out his best friend is current speaker of the house, he couldn't get out of their fast enough. Literally, NFL owner and that is what he is doing, smh, sad really

  39. -Reitz should be tops in SIAC but not ready to say Big Gap. Committed a lot of bad penalties last year and they were no-shows in the tournament. Certainly the favorites on paper. -VL should be in the top 4 with all the returning talent. Great athlete at QB. Need to finish games this year. -Memorial. I trust Hurley will be just fine with Fisher/Bryant, a top notch RB and athletes on the outside. Possibly one of the more athletic teams Memorials had in recent years. Worth noting..there’s also a Combs entering 10th grade. -MD and their staff always find a way to be physical and tough regardless of the names. -North is always scary but unless they replaced their OC they will be middle of pack. Always have dudes but just seem to fall short of expectations. -Jasper is just different than any team in the siac. Never underestimate the Cats. Tough to beat Jasper in any sport. -Castle played much better than I expected last season. Expect them to be very competitive most nights. Never short on QB talent or WR talent. Bosse, Harrison, and Central. just stay healthy in these games.

  40. Forest Park High School is looking for a skill position coach. Open to best fit. Positions within the corporation may come open throughout the year. Lay coaches are encouraged to send their materials in as well. We are a 2A school that competes in the PAC, and we return most of our starters from last season. Please contact Head Coach Terry Riggs at terry.riggs@sedubois.k12.in.us for more information or via message.

  41. I will give you coach speak here. We will be running the systems which fit our players. I have a system I want to run, but if the players do not fit that system, then I will have to change. The only aspect I can tell you for sure is we will be attacking where we have the advantages. 14 years Varsity Football coaching experience- Jasper, Forest Park, Springs Valley 3 years AD- Vincennes Rivet 6 years Varsity Track and Field Coach- Jasper, Vincennes Rivet 5 years Middle School Basketball Coach- Holy Family (Jasper feeder) Hope that answers all your questions!

  42. Perhaps there is a lack of appreciation for the fact that coaches are teaching when they are coaching. There have been innumerable posts on this Forum extolling football as a sport that teaches valuable life lessons … a contention with which I wholeheartedly agree. Coaches direct that instruction.

  45. Would have guessed the state's largest school would also be the pettiest? This looks like an overreaction by the Carmel administration. It appears they got beat, so they are taking their ball and going home. At least they can find some swimmers in a school of 5,000 and remain dominant in something.
