  1. Explain Western Boone... or Seeger Memorial? Both have multiple small towns and multiple elementaries that feed into 1 Jr High and High School. There isn't a parade from homecoming around the "town". I think you will find instances of both support/pride and instances of programs that stuggle to get that. It really is what came first the chicken (success) or the egg (support/pride/identity)?

  4. There obviously isn't just one answer, but I think for SOME of these school's Admin either doesn't care or have given up. First, make practice convenient for players. Have an athletic class. Students no longer have to find a way home after workouts, plus it allows them to work after school during the off-season. Adding an activity bus would also increase participation. It would allow students a way home after practice in-season. This doesn't have to be difficult. Coaches can't drive players home after practice in their personal vehicles (at least aren't supposed to). So get them lic

  5. New Prairie is a rural school. Every time the Cougar's make a deep tournament run both the towns of New Carlisle and Rolling Prairie go all out. There is never a single business that does not a show of support for the team displayed on their business marquee or store front window. Many will take out full page ads in the newspaper. Restuarnt owners often host the team for a meal or breakfast prior to going downstate on the road for their tournament games. That is one of my favorite things to see concerning high school athletics.

  6. In my opinion any award given by the IFCA, has more meaning than any award given by the media. The media shows way to much bias when giving out awards.

  7. I don't think I'd go that far. Jay County will be far more competitive in the ACAC within a couple of years, but to go from 3 wins per year since joining the ACAC (1 in the past two years) to being too strong for the conference in 3 years is an exaggeration. The potential might be there eventually, but the conference is usually top heavy with strong teams recently from SA, AC and, a few years ago, Woodlan. Those 3 teams have had stretches of consistently winning lop-sided games in the conference. Since Jay County joined the ACAC, here's how their 3 wins per season stack up with the top 4

  8. Football and wrestling coach here - I will tend to agree with the above statement just in the fact that with Club Wrestling and RTC's now-a-days - the time commitment it takes to be an elite level wrestler is just astonishing and something I don't think many people realize. I'm talking State Championship material here, not just State Qualifier (which is still awfully tough) Now, bigger guys (195 +) can get by on sheer strength/athleticism - but in your "prime" weight classes, it almost takes a year round commitment. Life was definitely simpler not so long ago....and I'm not so sure

  14. The conversation over in the County school thread has reopened the door to discussion concerning implementation of the Failure Factor. For purposes of political correctness, lets call it the Non Success Factor. NSF. For all the reasons that we can point out that schools like Center Grove, Cathedral, Carmel, New Pal, Jasper, Westfield, etc etc have continued and sustained success, we can also point to schools like Jay County, Rushville, Connersville, Madison, Frankfort, Owen Valley, etc etc who are on the other end of the spectrum and experience very little success on the high school f

  17. Any Non-success list would have to include Pike Central. Has the IHSAA football tournament been around in its current format since 1985? 1986? Pike Central has won one sectional game in that time span. Not won the sectional. ONE GAME. So their postseason record is 1-35. If that doesn't define a team that can't be competitive as a 3A school, I don't know what does.

  20. Apologies to you and @Donnie Baker I glanced at the Membership Map https://www.ihsaa.org/Portals/0/ihsaa/documents/calendars/MembershipMap.pdf and confused I-74 with the county line between the two. It appears then Seeger (Warren) is the single HS exception and not Fountain Central. Great point. It's always easier to support a winner.

  21. It was difficult in my early years, but very manageable. We were on tri-mesters. A LOT of planning the 1st year. Coached football, basketball and softball. I attended all off season work outs for all sports that didn't interfere with my in season sport. I was also the student council co-advisor. My advice....DO NOT try and reinvent the wheel.

  22. I am not trying to make it anything... Seeger is the only school in Warren County. They have had success. My point was/is that does the success come from good Community support or does the community support come from the success?

  23. I feel "county" school may be better replaced with Rural. Where I'm at is not the only school in the county, but the only corp that is experiencing excessive student population decline, I think that factors into it more than anything. Other factors involved for sure, but enrollment and participation is key!

  24. Also while Carmel is still growing at the high school it has begun to shrink at the elementary levels. The community is built up, very few places for a new home to be built. As this group of parents graduate their kids the high school will begin to shrink too, you wont get enough in the move in/move out exchange to keep up with the size. You already see Carmel closing elementary schools. Carmel isn't going to drop to 2000 kids or anything, but it's very likely they fall well into the 4,000's in the next decade. A question I have is how long until Westfield, and Noblesville st

  26. This is huge for Jay County. Coach Zgunda should be able to turn them into a solid program. A school the size of Jay County should be much more competitive in football in the ACAC against schools around half its size. I'm assuming the primary hurdle will be to get kids to come out and to get the community to buy in to what it takes to build a winning program.

  28. Interesting that we are talking about symmetry of classes. I’m thinking they don’t care much. IHSAA just released the boys sectional draw. Some have 5 teams, most have 6 or 7, and a few even have 8. Tell me how that is symmetry for that tournament?

  29. I used to track these changes in conference schedules for the SIAC, Big 8 & PAC but haven't in the last several years as it takes up a lot of time. In 1992, the SIAC switched to having the rivalry games in the last week of the regular season. The schedules pretty much stayed the same and they used to rotate weeks 3-6 (week 3 would become week 4, 4->5, 5->6, 6->3) for a while. With the addition of Jasper & Vincennes, they pretty much had to blow the schedule up, but did keep the rivalry weeks intact. Back in the day, the city schools would rotate who played on Thanksg

  30. It is really an odd decision because it works against the success factor. If you stick them in separate sectionals, Chatard probably never drops to 3A. (See the Dwenger situation.) Same could be said for putting Cathedral and Roncalli in separate sectionals in 5A.

  42. Unless your name is Lyndon B. Johnson. Probably the most racist president ever............until he signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Then he was deemed a hero. Allegedly, after signing the new law, he turned to the two governors in the room and said to them..........."we'll have those n-----s voting democrat for the next 200 years." It's all about the vote. Always has been, always will be. Last week, while at that gym, I was watching FOX and CNN side by side.
