  2. The fact that we beat the virus for the most part. I didn't believe we could get past week 5. great job by administrators, coaches, players and officials to get us to this point!

  3. Wanted to take a second and give some props to the Fairfield Falcons and their 8-0 undefeated regular season. Heck of a job by Coach Matt Thacker going 8-0 in his third season at Fairfield. After going 1-9 in each of previous coach Bob Miller's final seasons, the Falcons went 0-9 in Coach Thacker's first season in 2018. That season Fairfield only averaged 3 points per game on offense while giving up 55 points on defense. Last year saw improvement to the tune of a 6-6 record and a sectional championship appearance. This season, the offense has averaged 38 points per game while th

  4. Congrats to: 6A Westfield 5A runner up in 2013. 5A champion in 2016. Now a solid contender and the sagarin favorite in 6A to represent the north at Lucas Oil. Jake Gilbert is building a powerhouse program. They ran the table in the HCC including an OT win over the pre-season favorite Brownsburg. And it appears he’s doing it like Eric Moore, as football up and down the school system is very successful. 4A Mooresville Only an OT loss to 5A #2 Whiteland has kept them from being #1 or #2 in Sagarin 4A.

  5. The fact we are having a season at all, to me, in light of all the earlier naysaying and the fact that some school systems literally were declaring that there would be no fall sports is, frankly, nothing short of miraculous and will always be what folks will remember about this “year that almost wasn’t”. With that, the season is far from over and the virus might still lay a heavy hand on what the final outcome of the championship season might look like.

  7. Imagine if you @DT were not seen as the thin skinned one, and rather, all of the people whose feelings get hurt just read your commentary for what it is. I do not agree with a lot of what you post, but that is actually a good thing. We need more positive disagreements in our society, rather than the, "You are wrong, you suck, so shut up and go away!" mentality that has infiltrated so many areas of our lives. Imagine where our game would be today if there were never any dissenters and everyone was ok with just going with the flow. Kuddos to you and your unpopular opinions Mr. @DT!

  8. Two years ago Fairfield played a varsity schedule with basically no seniors except one (he was a cross country runner), a small handful of juniors, a nice group of sophomores and a handful of freshmen. They gave up 493 points and scored 27. They gave up over 70 points twice and over 60 twice. This current group of seniors that are 8-0 never quit. Coach Thacker has done a remarkable job.

  9. I’d have to agree. I was just telling my wife last night that just a few years ago they were on the verge of not having a team and I think they may have only played a JV schedule that year to undefeated this year. Great story.

  10. It should be reversed. LCC could be the dark horse but they’re a huge unknown and only beat Benton Centrals 28-14. SA is definitely the North favorite. I swear to God they are

  11. It has taken many times thinking about posting this. My dad was my coach for many years. He was always harder on me than anyone else. He knew what the perception was of a dad coaching a son. It wasn't easy but it was worth it. Some of the old timers on here might remember him as HuskyWarrior. He passed away about a month ago and as I am preparing for our first round game this week I could not help but think of him. Those from Nobelsville, Warren Central, and Hamilton Heights might remember best. But if you ever went to a Bishop Dullaghan camp from 2000-2010 there is a good chance you met him c

  12. 6A: With only 32 teams, and an overwhelming favorite in CG, it's hard to find a dark-horse contender out of the South part of the bracket. Carmel & LN are the only two teams that come to mind to challenge CG in the South. In the North, it's going to be fascinating to see what shakes out...Can Homestead come out of a brutal sectional and then beat Westfield in Regionals? Can Laf Jeff, with an awful schedule, pull a shocker against a loaded Merrillville squad and then defeat presumably Elkhart in Regionals? Loads of intrigue in 6A North for the first time in a while! 5A: Again, wit

  16. Don’t have any brothers Sherlock, but nice try... Also, at Pioneer we don’t wait for the classes 5 to 10 years down the road to start winning games. Get excited about youth league and jr high scores all you want... Those leagues are for teaching fundamentals, not win-loss records. If our freshman come in knowing wing t fundamentals and how to get to the ball on defense I’m a happy camper. We know the conference is going to be more competitive in the coming years. Judson is going to be a problem next year. Hendryx will get Winamac turned around. Laville has a gre

  17. Honestly don’t remember what I said or when I said it. Why would I quit though? The next few years are going to be a lot of fun as a coach getting to see the next reload of Panthers. We were supposed to be “down” after the seniors in 15 graduated. We were supposed to be “down” after Jack’s class graduated and still were able to run the table in conference. Will we be a different team after this season? Absolutely we will, it would be ignorant to say otherwise. We’ll be losing a senior class that has been a part of 2 state championship teams. However, we always have guys ste

  18. Those are all definitely some good stories.. I have to throw Silver Creek into that mix. They were a brand new program 8 years ago. They just completed their first undefeated season and conference title in school history. Naturally, they get rewarded with a 7-2 East Central visit for the first round of sectionals, but that is for another thread 😆. Congrats to Coach Papenhaus and co.

  23. Congrats to: 5A Whiteland (Darrin Fisher) who ended the season as #2 in 5A per Sagarin. My only thoughts are: (a) job well done; (b) sucks to be South in 5A with Cathedral (otherwise a likely Lucas Oil trip) and (c) Jet Sweep, Jet Sweep, Jet Sweep. 4A Roncalli (John Rodenberg) who ended the season as #2 in 4A per Sagarin. Between their coach (who has some modest experience with parochials) and their constant team improvement, I consider them the favorite to represent the South at LOS. In any event, I expect the 4A South Semi-State to be the State Championship....don’t le

  29. All the momentum shifted to CG on that play. All Jackson could see was blue sky ahead. And the CHS defense was not ready to go back on the field. It was a helluva game. CHS staff just F up the ending . It happens. Good luck in the tournament. Nice solid team. I will add that I persoanlly believe Cathedral should be petitioning to play up in the 6A tournament. That team is loaded with great players from all over the city. Its kind of a joke that they are playing in the 5A tournament.

Really Really Really Really happy I personally do not have to see Jerry Padgett again. Or Erb or Tuggle or #75 or #8. Congrats to Panthers Gave it a go tonight. Proud of our boys who so gritty in some serious size mismatches.

  32. Cathedral will have at least 4 D1 Offensive Linemen (Woods, Farah, Sizemore, and Koers) in the class of 2022. Woods and Koers will be to a Power 5 conference. Wouldn’t shock me if all 4 went to the Power 5.

  33. Totally agree! It’s the same conversation that was had last week. Judson didn’t score on Knox in week 4 so how could they ever score on another team in week 9? I dunno maybe we practice and get better. It’s like every team is in stasis in the eyes of the trolls. Coaching is fluid. You’re either getting better or worse as the season goes on.

  38. Your claims assume that there are no other models to use as an example. 1. If you use the IHSAA state basketball tournament as the example, EVERY round of the tournament is played at neutral sites. 2. The hosting school keeps 100% of the concession revenue, which at a packed facility, which is hosting 4 schools rather than 2 is a considerable amount. 3. Both teams travel because each team earned the right to play at that level and there should not be some type of home field advantage. 4. There is a strong argument that attendance would/could be greater if each team has

  39. If it is truly to protect the player from returning too early, why can't the IHSAA give Athletic Directors waivers for guardians to sign off on any liability? There is nothing fair about a kid having to sit out 14 days because his sister had Covid, then add on another 6 days before he can compete when he has been heathy the whole time.

  41. Just making a general observation about the SIAC folks in general (Memorial more specifically) being less than optimistic as to their team’s prospects in recent years despite still taking hardware home at seasons end. I recall when Reitz was on that roll from 2007-10 and were legitimately a Top 10 team All Classes some of that time and they had that fierce rivalry with Cathedral. If you even questioned Reitz’ superiority back then a Panther with dueling pistols was at your doorstep. Apparently a league memo was issued sometime in the last 5 years. These past few years the gene
