  3. This week the St. Joe community said good by to Fr. Cam a long time supporter of St Joe and who was on the sidelines for many years. He died at the age of 90 and was buried yesterday in his hometown of Cleveland. He touched many students and athletes lives while he was involved at SJ. Up until last year every game we talked before the beginning of the game whether it was home or away. It will be a little strange to look across the field and not see him there. RIP Fr Cam, you lived a good faithful life as a servant of Our Lord.

  5. There used to be something like this in the Summer in South Bend. 4 teams from the area: South Bend City, East, West, and a team of Michigan kids. They would play two games in a day. I arranged for our crew to go over there to work one of those games one year. I figured this would be a piece of cake, low intensity, no pressure way to spend a day during the off season. Midway through the first quarter we find ourselves in a bench clearing melee when one kid spit on another. The rest of the game was brutal, one personal foul or unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after another. My crew never let me

Thanks for visiting with us at Hoosier High School Football Coach Pelley , Question 1 You've had a good look at your team through summer drills and 7 on 7 competitions over the past two months. What are your observations as you head into the final month of preparations before the season opens, where do you see this team's strengths, and what areas are defi

  8. There's a growth explosion in Fort Wayne right now and most of it is up north in the Carroll district. Sitting at just over 2400 students currently, their enrollment will continue to climb. With a new 8 million dollar stadium and facilities and socioeconomics that could rival any in the state, it would be crazy to think that Carroll isn't trending up. But until they get that SAC title, they take a back seat to Snider, Dwenger, and Homestead.

  9. I can comment RE #3. There is no more gap between Elkhart and Penn IMO. Gaps yes, but they more than equal out. Im not sure people understand the demographics and size of Elkhart and should start to think more along the lines of Warren Central when you think of the type of athletes Elkhart has at the skill positions. There isn't a skill position player that isn't a starter on a MIC team. Even prior to the consolidation, Shattuck had Central closing in on Penn. This is likely the last year where Penn will have a real shot at beating Elkhart as they are very young due to being SR dominated

Condolences to his family and friends. Rest in Peace, sir. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2021/05/14/center-grove-pa-announcer-jason-mueller-fights-colon-cancer/5018903001/

  11. Would Texas forfeit their Longhorn Network since SEC has their own Network? https://texassports.com/sports/2013/7/28/GEN_0728134519.aspx Seems this would eliminate OU almost being automatic as a 12 team college playoff qualifier and make the road back for Texas much more difficult.

  12. SF has opined since last March that Dr. Fauci is a brilliant bureaucrat who has the ability to spin both sides of the argument as the truth depending on the question or topic at hand. I have felt sooner or later he would get caught up in a situation like this where he was attempting to justify something questionable. (IMHO) In this situation before the Senate he realized he overplayed his hand relative to the funding Senator Paul is questioning, and his answer was a definite denial and a brazen rebuke of the Senator by telling him he doesn't know what he is talking about.

  13. LOL.. well I can at least laugh at myself! Can't help it fellers...we get talking football and I get all caught up. I haven't gotten in depth LOL really because I haven't talked to coaches yet this year, and there's always something not accounted for. Such as last year having 2 multi year starters not play their senior year. I've watched a couple scrimmages, but it's hard to really know who is who in some cases. I want to be more active this year on the Gridiron. I was lame last year. I gotta get my information in order!!

  14. I haven't delved into my Miners yet... but only 5 seniors from last years 8-4 team that lost only to Mater Dei (9-5), Southridge (13-1) North Knox (6-3)and in OT to 4A Boonville (a game really was a dropped interception from a Miner win). Linton only lost 1 true skill player (WB Trey Goodman, who moved from QB in week 2). For me the biggest losses are of the twins on the OL... Landon and Damien Giles. As well at DE/TE Levi Grounds who alternated all year from TE to OL. His biggest contribution was at DE. We also lose an OLB in Brayman Lannan. I expect Jr QB Hunter Gennicks to be bigger f

  15. Up here in the Fort, I'm looking forward to two games that first week: Luers vs Carroll.........We find out if Carroll is better than they were last year. If so, the rest of the SAC may be in trouble. Luers fans are as excited about this team as they have been in a long time. If that's the case, look for the Knights to give the big SAC schools some competitive games. Wayne vs Dwenger........Wayne is looking to get back to their championship ways with a state champion coach at the helm in his second year. Dwenger apparently is going through a rebuilding year. Could be a good game.

  16. I believe this - The Democrat party stole the 2020 election by using the loopholes in the voting system to place unchecked and unverified votes from people on the voter roles who actually didn't even show up to vote. Pretty hard to prove anything was illegal without physically going to each voter to verify. These loopholes in the system are being closed with common sense laws meant to ensure that anyone who can LEGALLY cast a vote can actually do it securely and those that don't want to won't have to worry about it. Case in point, my father passed away in 1988. When I showed up to vote

  19. One injury-ravaged season in 2019 and a worthless, covid-ruined 2020 with a huge mistake at DC that has since been taken care of. It hasn't been good since 2018 but his contract is too good for him to walk away from, too much for another school to want to match right now, and too much/long for Purdue to buy it out. He's not going anywhere in the next 15 months whether anyone wants it or not, and as a Purdue fan I can only speak for myself but I don't. It's not like we're not even in games like the Hazell era. Let Hagen improve the defense. Let the offensive line mature. Stay healthy. Wi

  23. Coach Hart is a really good coach...cannot deny. Had some really loaded Warren Central Teams during his 4 years 2008-11. Won a state title 2009, but wasn't easy with sectional win over Franklin Central 14-13, regional champ Brownsburg 14-6, and a state title over Carmel 42-36 in 2OT. The fact does remain that regardless of strong regular seasons, Hart won 2 sectionals, 1 regional, 1 semi-state and 1 state at WC during his tenure with very talented teams. For example, his 2010 WC team was LOADED. That team included Nick Temple (Cincy), Deionte Buckley (Cincy), Sheldon Day (ND &

  25. Just don’t get why you are so insecure. This is a message board and it is the offseason so this is a great topic for debate. I’m not sure why folks get so sensitive. There is a classy way to compare programs and coaches without “trashing” anyone and you’re smart enough to do it. You watch the games, see the coaching adjustments that are made and speak to the coaches involved on a regular basis. What is so hard about comparing coaches and programs that you see week in and week out?

  27. Why would I start naming other programs? If I say well, BD has the advantage in coaching vs. X Team. Then that's a subjective judgement. I'm not familiar with what goes on exactly at all the other programs in the MIC. I'm not 100 percent sure what, for example, LC is fighting right now. You want to start a tit-for-tat, hot take back-and-forth that would force me to start throwing other programs under the bus, and I refuse to do it. Why make our guy look better by trashing someone else? All I know is that the last two years the Giants were left for dead, and they ended up in the Semi-Stat

  28. With 2000 fewer students, I might add. BD, along with Carmel and Warren, should never fall into the “its cyclical” argument with the pure numbers and resources they have available. A .500 season 1-2 times per decade? Maybe.

  33. The term scrimmage is defined by the IHSAA, as @Bobref posted above and occurs in August. However, players, fans, parents, even coaches will use the term scrimmage when the IHSAA defines it as a "competition day." Teams can play 7 on 7, 11 on 11, and engage in other competition activities - but it is done to thud and not tackling to the ground. IHSAA By-law 15-3.4 a. Students may not participate in any Full Contact Football Activities (any intentional football activity by a player where the goal is to take One (1) or more competing players to the ground as the result of a collision

And they met with a Republican vice president who then refused to even be tested for the virus. The media would lose their minds. Reckless lawmakers subverting democracy, spreading the Delta variant, and an administration trying to hide the truth! Of course, you don’t need to imagine the scenario. Three Texas lawmakers

  37. At my age, I kinda already know voter registration is local. I still believe (and will probably not be persuaded otherwise) that the Democrat party (in each of the states still currently under audit) was implicit in figuring a way to steal the election and was successful in their execution. BTW - is sharing a personally held opinion bordering on libel? We all better just close the OOB then........and never speak to anyone - ever again......Come on DE.....

  38. That was a JUCO playoff game at College of DuPage. After a bench clearing brawl precipitated by a play on my sideline, the R asked me where the out of bounds spot was, and I truthfully told him I had no idea. He told me to “Make something up … and make it look good.” The R was a guy named Tom McCabe, a long time R in the MAC.

I was made away of the passing of Tom Dawson. The name prolly doesn't shake any thoughts, but he was very active as well as a moderator at some point as "ItIsWhatItIs" and before that as "USNAVRET". You might have been aware that he had been fighting cancer for a long time. He wasn't able to go to games last year because of the Covid scare. I feel badly that I hadn't kept in touch with him.

  40. The December timeframe works in SEC country because of weather and also early HS graduates. (January entry to college.) As far as SW Indiana, there was some talk of re-starting the Hardee’s All Star game, but this time sponsored by Midwest Football Academy. The Hardee’s game was City vs Area. Players from the 8 SIAC schools at the time vs players from PAC & Big 8. It was always played at UE and fairly well attended. But UE dropped football, leaving the game without a venue, and domination by the SIAC team led to dwindling interest. The last game I attended was in the late 9

  41. Love the idea of an interstate all-star game. I actually did a project about an interstate all star game during one of my classes while getting my masters degree. Granted mine was one a much smaller scale with little actual research done (SW Indiana v. Western KY). I called it the Kentuckiana All-Star Bowl. I had it played in the Reitz Bowl due to the game being in June, but a winter all-star game would have to be played at LOS. I have a strong feeling that this sort of game was in the works to be conducted down in Evansville (but was curtailed by COVID) because I thought they stole my idea lo
