  4. This is the LAST place to turn to if you are looking for this to be corrected. It is the AD's responsibility to lodge a formal complaint with an official's name.

  5. Perhaps a moderator could excise the officials’ name from that first post. You are correct that this is not something an official can take upon himself, and impose on the teams without their agreement. The proper recourse is to report this to Asst. Commissioner Faulkens at the IHSAA, as opposed to calling out the official by name on a public forum.

  7. I think 32 has represented pretty well the last few years. The winner won the next week in all but 3 years during this stretch. 2020 – Southridge (lost at semi-state) 2019 – Heritage Hills (lost at state) 2018 - Memorial (lost at state) 2017 – Memorial (won state) 2016 – Memorial (lost at regional) 2015 – Gibson Southern (lost at semi-state to state champ) 2014 – Heritage Hills (lost at semi-state to state champ) 2013 – Gibson Southern (lost at semi-state to state champ) 2012 – Gibson Southern (lost at semi-state to state champ) 2011 – Memorial (lost at regional) 2010 – Bosse (lost at regional) 2009 – Memorial (lost at state) 2008 – Memorial (lost at state)

  12. I don’t think my feeling’s have changed much about Chatard all year. Over the first four games, they played the most difficult schedule in the State of Indiana up to that point - Brebeuf, Warren Central, Roncalli and Cathedral. That was supported by BOTH Sagarin and CalPreps. Other than the Cathedral game, they were very competitive in the other games (they even lead a good part of the Warren game). In retrospect, I think they should have won the Brebeuf game but 4-5 turnovers against a great team is almost always terminal. I think they win that game today. I was never disappointed in this team’s record knowing just what they had been through those first four games. The fact is, after the Warren and Roncalli games, I was really impressed with them. Most teams their size would have huddled in a fetal position and taken the expected beat down. These kid’s didn’t. They gave back as good as they got. This is a solid Chatard team and as good as the majority of their prior State Champion teams…but, admittedly, not quite up to the mark of, arguably, two of the better Chatard teams ever that we witnessed the last couple of years. I stand behind my observation some weeks back when they were 0-4 and I asked that, other than Roncalli, what other 4A team in Indiana could have survived those first four games let alone have been competitive in three of them? I didn’t think there was another 4A team then (other than Roncalli) and my opinion hasn’t changed since. In fact, I think that Chatard has likely improved comparatively more than any of those teams they played in their early losses. I still believe Roncalli is at another level vs. the rest of 4A this year - but I also think that Chatard is the second best team in 4A this year and has an outside shot at them. God knows, no one else in 4A has fought the wars these kids did early on and they’ve earned a ton of respect from me in watching them (not that they needed it).

  16. Don't know about Tiptons, but it looks like LCC's bus got caught in the rain and arrived late and the refs started the game on time. Can't believe the IHSAA would allow such a thing to happen. And Tiptons could have waited and ... *whisper from the side* I've just been informed that this was a home game for the Knights. I got nothin'. I gotta go.

  17. So far the biggest outcry is from the largest blowhard (yourself). Honestly I don't care about other media sites etc that would be up at arms. Wouldn't have changed the outcome, just like anything said from the other side wouldn't change the outcome. It has been very well documented both teams have speed, both teams have a lot of talent, and both teams have depth. Just because you want to use narrative bias doesn't change that. They didn't change the venue because Arlington is their homefield and it was last year too. Honest question are you that dense? It doesn't matter if every football fan had the game circles since last October. I doubt Coach Moore or Coach Peebles care about every football fan circling it on their calendar, and I'd bet they care more about their team. That is what you don't get, they aren't there to cater to you or any other fan. They are there for their team if you come to watch so be it. They didn't need time to find another venue because the game was going to be played on their homefield rain, snow, or shine. They have already paid to rent the facility, they have already paid to resurface and upkeep the field. It will be there next week as well and any other potential home games unless the IHSAA forces them not to hold it there. No need to whine about it anymore. "Arlington is Cathedral's home field" doesn't matter if you like it or not, nor if CG or their fans like it or not. It is rented for the year and money put into what they can. End of subject.

  20. That 2012-2015 stretch…man was that a gut checker for the GS fans. I still remember that HH game in 2014 too. run the spread all year and no bone. People complaining about not sticking to traditions then pulled out the bone after leading 14-13 at the half and milked the clock dry…like of course you still had the bone playbook installed, how could you guys not HH/GS have some great games the last 10 years in sectional 32 Edit: I believe 2014 is when that Crews kid was playing for HH….man was he special.

  23. Gibson Southern vs. either The Preppies (Brebeuf for those unwashed) or West Lafayette at Lucas Oil. I don’t have a 4th Team. I’m slightly favoring Brebeuf v West Lafayette simply in 2 weeks because it’s a home game for Brebeuf (and the fact that Brebeuf has played a much more difficult schedule). As to who wins Thanksgiving Weekend, no idea….but I will be personally favoring one team….IB.

  24. Oh man! My last wagon master was a year ago tomorrow. I need to look up my basketball officiating schedule and see if I can get a post game master. The master would end up at center court if I ate it in pregame.

  25. This is the only thing I can think about before Friday. Double Wagonmaster for the win. It brought the Huskies good luck last time! Although I would like to see our DT get a pick 6 this week instead of the ball bouncing off his shoulder pad into the arms of another Husky. He had a clear path to the goal line. After the deflection, there was a return by the other player, but not a pick 6.

  26. Culver @ LaVille- Lancers- Lancer offense will need to eek out some points on the few possessions they get on the night. Culver doesn't do anything special, but they run their 6 play offense pretty well. Any body have any insight as to why they run the world's most boring offense? Knox @ Caston- The Knox High School Football Team- Caston is flat out bad. North Judson @ Pioneer- Panthers- Conference matchup of the week. I was pretty impressed with Judson after watching the LaVille game from last week. They are very physical up front and their backs run hard. Weather could be a factor this week that might limit their passing attack and make the mesh points tricky on their triple. If Pioneer can take care of the ball on offense, I like their chances. No matter who comes out on top I don't see it by more than 10 points. Triton @ Winamac- Winamac- Triton has the pieces to win this game but I think they're a year or 2 out. Unsure how good Winamac truly is as this point.

  34. I gotta say this game is the de facto state championship, for all classes. Winner of this game is the true king of Indiana HS Football. Which is why neither team should hold back. Each should cruise through their respective tournaments, regardless of which players they chose to field. So lay it all on the line this Friday. Final Score: Center Grove 19-16 Cathedral

  36. Chatard usually streams all home games on their YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJXyOqDVcWW-3V1uWn5YZqw I would guess they would do the BHSS game as well but I'm not positive. It's produced by the students, so the quality of the commentating and video is usually pretty suspect, but you'd at least be able to see the game. Safe travels if you do make the trip! And feel free to stop by the Trojan tailgate to say hello!

  39. For regionals, when both teams have were host in the sectional championship game, or both visitor, they go to a tie-breaker, higher or lower number sectional winner, ie sectional 31 is higher than sectional 32. That tie-breaker is reversed for the semi-state. For this example, think of each class as having sectionals 1 through 8. If the tie-breakers are higher # in regional and lower # in semi-state, sectional 1 (the northern most sectional) can only ever be the highest sectional. Sectional 8 (the southern most sectional) can only ever be the lowest sectional and has only one shot to win a tie-breaker each year. Sectionals 2 through 7 can theoretically win bot the highest and lowest tiebreakers in a given season, depending on how it all breaks out. I admit, on the face, it seems like a very small thing. I'm not an expert and can't tell you how statistically significant it is, because you'd have to figure out a way to determine how often those tie-breakers are used and how much more likely those middle sectional winners are to get that advantage. I do know it's not the reason HH has had two different trips to the state finals where they only got to play one post-season game at home. That is a direct result of the rule that states if a team plays both the sectional championship and regional on the road, they automatically host the semi-state. Both years, HH played only their sectional championship game at home through the regional round, while their opponent played their first two sectional games at home but played both sectional championship and regional on the road. That rule should be changed to use total number of post-season games hosted because, with a blind sectional draw, no one sectional game should hold any more weight than another. Your toughest game could very well be your sectional opener, or your sectional semi-final.

  40. Just wanted to point out that Brady Allen is 222 yards away from a big milestone of 10,000 career yards this Friday. Would be 1 of 7 people to achieve that in Indiana and would join Michael Lindauer to be a 10k passer just thought I would point it out as I know it’s week 9 and people really don’t care about this week as much since we are all looking ahead to sectionals.

  45. Arguably... what else are we supposed to argue about? 😄 First let's get through Boonville this week, (arguably) the toughest PAC opponent on paper (#2 in points scored and #2 in points allowed in the big PAC (113 and 40 respectively in 4 games, only behind GS). I think their 2-2 conference record is deceiving. They may not have the horses of 2020, but they shouldn't be overlooked. You give a team like the Pioneers a brush off in a week of practice and you may get a bloody lip come Friday night.

  46. Ok, I'll bite. 1v2 is not arguable. At best, 1v3. Arguably... 1v4. Exactly. There is a reason this is true, and not because HH is historically a thorn in GS's sectional side. It's because they are better that MV in 2021. Week one was a fluke. MV won, not taking that away from them. But plus five TO margin (memory there, could be different) and you win by one score? C'mon. HH silver plattered that one to MV, and then some. HH>MV 8 of 10 games. SR>MV 7 of 10. Anyone that says sectional 32 championship is being played in the bottom bracket of round one is either misinformed, ignorant of PAC football, or from Posey County.
