  1. Has the IHSAA put out anything that eliminates the minimum number of games stipulation? I saw @Bobref mention the 4 game minimum. I participated in a Zoom meeting, for an association that I'm not a member of, last week, and the guest speaker was Mr. Faulkens. This question came up and I could've sworn he said there would be no minimum to play in the tournament. Apologies if I mis-heard. On a side note, I do appreciate all of the associations that are holding on-line meetings. It's good to hear from officials in other parts of the state...…..and the refreshments are much better at home.
  2. Like the NBA player that left and went to a strip joint? But they support a Marxist organization, so that's cool to you......
  3. In the various meetings I have attended, I haven't heard anything different for this year. I would guess that masks will be a personal preference. Not much they can do as far as social distancing. When I worked the H, I made sure they were able to work unimpeded.
  4. The only option I know of, besides a regular whistle, is the handheld electronic whistle. Some officials I know have purchased them in anticipation of possibly being required to wear a mask. Our crew will be using regular whistles. If masks are ever required, I know I won't be working.
  5. October 14, 2016 - Kickoff. Runner is hit by multiple defenders. When the pile hits the ground, I blow the whistle. Next thing I know, another R player picks up the ball and runs about 50 yards before he is tackled. As the HL, I get to feel the eyes of R's coach burning through me, as I give him his options, one of which is not getting the ball at the other end of the field. Needless to say, those plays stay with you. 😟
  6. Does baseball, or any of the sports that expand the number of officials in the tournament, require special certification, on those mechanics, to qualify for the tournament? Or are those mechanics covered in the testing process? I ask, because speaking to a Florida official a few years ago, I was told that they go from 5 to 7 as soon as the playoffs start. They, of course, can do that because they have a (sensitive word coming.....) qualifier for their tournament. In order to work the tournament, they have to be certified in 7 man mechanics.
  7. This is the "advantage". The P/P schools that win big are in the states most populated cities: Indy, Lafayette, Evansville, Ft Wayne...... It doesn't guarantee you'll win, but the resources are there, that draw the families.
  8. Gelsosomo's - US6 and County Line Rd 2.9 mi from HHS AJ's Pizza - South of Chesterton on 49, near the toll road entrance. Good selection of craft beer.
  9. Q. Restrictions Please inform your students and fans that during the game: 1. Banners and posters are not allowed. 2. Battery powered or electronic noise makers, fireworks, recorded music (permissible during‐ quarter breaks, halftime, and post‐game) , sirens or whistles are not allowed. 3. Throwing of articles, including toilet tissue and baby powder, is not allowed. 4. No live animal mascots are permitted at any time. 5. The facility should be as neutral as possible without any enhancements that emphasize a home team.
  10. Always October at ND (even though this one was a little earlier than usual) and November at SC.
  11. Yes. BTW, they lost to that opponent on their home field. It was just a thought and not going to happen. I'll, HOPEFULLY, be working the first 4 weeks of the tournament, so I wouldn't be able to see it anyway. As a grad of Pioneer, that typically only gets to see them in deep tournament runs, I can't speak with any certainty. My guess is that they don't mind playing at Cass and, if they're healthy, it's probably just as well that they do it in the 1st round.
  12. I can only go by pictures, since I haven't been to Cass in years. It's not going to happen, just thought it would be cool. Personally, I'd like to see all championship games (sect, reg, semi) played on a neutral field. I've seen too many fields that had no business holding a first round game, let alone a championship.
