  1. Which conference would Lafayette Jeff go? I think they tried the "greener pastures" before

    Eastern Michigan 20 Purdue 19

    That game just made me cringe. I just felt like everything was out of control. The Purdue forums are being pretty brutal right now. Not showing much mercy.

    It needs a lot of TLC!!! Goal is to be ready in two weeks
  8. You can cut on the LOS at the snap, correct? Head just has to be in front.

    Please confirm

      The rules don’t say anything about head position. But yes, blocking below the waist is permitted by offensive linemen against defensive linemen as long as it is in the free blocking zone and the ball is in the FBZ. For teams running shotgun or pistol, this has been interpreted to mean that the block must be immediate at the snap, with no delay or set by the offensive lineman.

  9. FC started slow, but recovered well and showed some fight! Need to clean up a few things (like all teams do) but over-all played well against a very good Webo team
  10. Webo is big and strong on both sides of the ball. Skill positions are solid. Seemed slightly out of shape

    Urban Meyer Death Watch

    Sounds like his job will be saved if in fact it was true he sent the info up the chain to the AD's office. That part of the investigation will be critical.

    Urban Meyer Death Watch

    I have to go with what ESPN was discussing yesterday. The OSU brass will be in touch with their high-powered money people. If their decision results in lots of lost money -----he will go. But if the big money dudes will continue to support regardless, the folks in Columbus will care less what the country thinks----he will stay.
  14. I'm sure there was a good reason for the Frankfort HC to leave at this point. Hopefully we all don't start rumors until we know the facts.
  15. I know plenty of guys who are lay coaches and started their careers as lay coaches. bottom line-a good coach is a good coach. being a in-class teacher does not make you a good coach. yes there are advantages to being in the building, but schools need coaches. let's face it the money given to coach high school football is a drop in the bucket. the money allotted to assistants is an embarrassment as it pertains to time put into coaching. if you are a lay coach you don't do it for the money, you do because you love the game and like developing players into productive young men. in fact there are a lot of coaches out there who are not lay coaches and the only reason they do it is for the money. its a point you can argue all day...….but truthfully in this day and age with our game under attack...….the game needs coaches who care!
  16. I was told at the ALL athlete conditioning days they were averaging 25-30 and some days as low as 17. That was TOTAL athletes. So numbers are down in all sports when it comes to conditioning and summer workouts.
  17. I think everyone is just going by what the article said. Pretty much about the assistant coaches not the players. No need to prove it. Getts has a proven track record. I'm pretty sure there are a few here that could say what went down. As a fan do you know, or what you were told? I'm pretty sure Coach Getts will coach again. No desire to retire from what I was told. As far as proving it, I'm pretty sure Coach Getts has plenty of text messages from the players to prove whose a fool.
  18. I guess it is all about the assistants and what they wanted. Yes, very interesting.
  19. WOW, Never heard of a Coach being forced out because of his work ethic.
  20. Unfortunately times have changed. Coaches getting to stay at a school for long durations won't be as common as the past. Parents/schools, whomever may be at fault do not support coaches as in the past. Yes, there are still some that do but as those long time coaches retire you start to see the turnovers. Another concern is the long time coaches who have had no parental issues for many year-- are now being accused of this or that. Times have come that schools will insist coaches coach the parents, not the players. Some of you will understand what I mean. When coaches are told whom to play or not play, when they can hold weights/practices etc., it makes the coaching professional life short lived and tough.
  21. Have to agree. Many years coaching and no complaints and then all of sudden BOOM. HMMMMMMMMMMMM Appreciate your last sentence............... very true.
  22. By all means lets show both sides of demeanor. “We stepped on the field, we weren’t going to be intimidated and the kids held their ground,” Braves coach Larry Getts said. “They said, ‘We’re just as good as you,’ and they played that for four quarters. That’s what the games are about right now. So many times teams come out against Luers and just fall apart because they get caught up with the helmet, they get caught up with the championships, our kids just said, ‘Let’s play football.’ That was after his Bellmont team upset Luers for a sectional title. Now on a side note I thought the Gridiron Digest prided themselves on "no rumors" Lets continue the talk about the teams in the conference and not the gossip.
  23. Maybe administration doesn't see a situation that needs rectified. HC that are forced to retain old coaching staffs sometimes need to make changes and improve. Some coaching staffs see that others are set in their ways and quit. Choice is theirs. Hurts the kids but it happens at schools all the time. New HC's come in and many times don't retain old coaching staffs, sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn't. Hard to say when you bring a coach it that has had success turning programs vs. old staff with little winning success. Sometimes HC bring in their own compatibatible staff and its a whole new ball game. Yup rumors always are a flying.
  24. my call is he will land at Law Central
  25. Thought both days were officiated very well. The only hit I saw was knee pads. All season long the pre-game meeting between officials and coaches centered around the knee pads covering the knees of the players. In some cases officials made claim that players that don't abide by this policy will not play. Yet in the 6A game I see a player from Penn and from Ben Davis that clearly did not have their knee pads covering the knees. Must just be a regular season rule!
