    HNAC Week 6

    LaVille 20, Knox 19 - HNAC Game of the Week . . . Gonna be a defensive battle. Big play, defensive stop, key turnover all could be factors tonight. North Miami 13, Caston 12 - I'd like to see Caston win this one, but it may come down to the final 12 minutes. Pioneer 60, Triton 0 - Panthers just too much for Trojans Culver 21, Winamac 20 - Cavs get the narrow conference 'W' North Judson 35, West Central 13 - Bluejays defense the difference in this game. WC can not outscore NJSP. as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007

    Yep! I can see that .... the Panthers early schedule doesn't do them a lot of favors in strength of schedule. And they are not the only team in the state that happens to. Just the way the sagarin ratings fall. Best To The Panthers The Rest Of The Season! Hopefully we will see them at Lucas Oil Thanksgiving Weekend! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007

    HNAC Week 5

    First off, never mentioned LaVille subbed early and often .... what I wrote was, LaVille subbed players in, especially in the second half. Secondly, I didn't ride the team bus or go to the JV game between LaVille and Culver Academy. LaVille could have had 13, 14 or 15 healthy guys or guys that had quarters available to play. Next, I am not a coach on LaVille's team. I don't know why LaVille did not play a JV game against Pioneer or Winamac or whoever. For some teams, numbers are tight and a couple players injured, on quarter watch or whatever affect JV games from week to week. It may have been that this week was that injured players were back, which give another player(s) an opportunity to play. Since we are there and continue on this road of running up the score .... Let's take a short look at some of these scores from around the state and I refer to as others that look like the score has been run up. These scores are compliments of John Harrell web site. Are these listed final scores considered running up the score? Maybe not to you, maybe to some others. New Palestine 77-0 West Central 72-6 Gibson Southern 73-0 NorthWood 71-0 Tipton 72-6 West Central 70-6 Delta 84-20 New Palestine 81-13 Northview 70-0 If you'll notice, never bothered to mention Pioneer in any of these scores above. As I never mentioned Pioneer in the past several posts regarding the final score. My post a few posts ago was "I grant you this, it was not 70+ - 0 like some other teams have done to various opponents this season." No place in this post suggests Pioneer. Notice the word is other teams . . . So, no, I'm not the guilty one of accusing Pioneer of anything ... I am guilty of complimenting Pioneer of being a very good football team, with very good coaches. I believe, based on scores from the John Harrell web site, at least one school has put up at least 70 points each of the first five weeks of the season. This will be my final post regarding "running up the score" As nicklebackjack said: LaVille didn't run the score up on Caston. Judson didn't run the score up on Winamac. Pioneer didn't run the score up on anyone. Any coach who saw those games knows that. Good Luck The Rest Of The Season! May your respective team(s) stay healthy and have much success! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007

    It's amazing how playing one opponent in one week changes your schedule strength significantly! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007
  7. This is for anyone that has the time and desire to be an IHSAA Official. The game of football, and many other IHSAA sports, needs IHSAA officials. The numbers are dwindling and the ones that suffer the most are the student-athlete. We have veteran officials that will take young officials under their wing and help you. Simply go to the www.ihsaa.org web site. click on officials, take the test and get your license. There is some money needed up front, but work a few games and the money comes back. All I ask is that you seriously think about it! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007

    I cheated ... I looked at your profile. Coach Pioneer Royal Center, IN. It's called logic .. simple deduction. Look .... let's call this what it is ... you are a Pioneer fan. The Panthers have a great team, a coaching staff. You are loyal to your team and that's great! Hope you guys continue a great run in the regular season and make some noise in the state tournament run. I honestly hope you guys win the 1A state title again. Good Luck! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007

    And once again, you are mis-informed or speaking when you do not know what you are talking about. I checked the LaVille JV Football schedule. They played at Culver Academy Saturday. According to a twitter account, CMA defeated LaVille, 12-0. as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007

    No shot fired against Pioneer .... that's on you. There have be multiple teams that scored 70+ points this year and beat up on its opponent ... and badly I might add When one team is far superior to another, and it shows, a the score can be controlled. Applause, applause, applause .... I'm glad you figured out that Caston's opponent scored less than 55 points. And yes, Kudos to ALL the Caston players, coaches and coaching staff. Could not have nicer kids, and great coaching staff that wants to teach the kids the game of football and much, much more!

    Never mentioned that anyone accused LaVille of anything. And, to boot, NEVER typed the words Pioneer in anything I mentioned. Sounds like we have a guilty conscience somewhere!

    HNAC Week 5

    Shout out to Coach Slocum and Coach Hostrawser and the coaching staff and players. Watched Caston at LaVille game. Caston plays hard, works hard ... came to play and did so for 48 minutes. Keep your heads up, Comets! At no point did it look like LaVille was trying to run up the score. LaVille subbed players in, especially in the second half. In fact, after looking at the scoring summary, seven LaVille players scored. People can say what they want to about 53-8 .... I grant you this, it was not 70+ - 0 like some other teams have done to various opponents this season. That is a fact and undisputed! Proud of both Caston and LaVille for good sportsmanship and the way you play the game! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007

    HNAC Week 4

    Take nothing away from LaVille ... then why the explanations? Pioneer .... just looked disinterested, no fire whatsoever . That speaks volumes. Lack of respect for the opposition. Pioneer tried some things defensively they've never done before and it bit them.... ok, Great. Thanks for telling the rest of us. The opposition didn't know that. Bottom line is, 19 points were scored against a team that had not been scored on. Let's blame an effective game plan from the opposition on being disinterested and defensive things not done yet. Tell us some more.... WOW! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007
  15. You are worried about Caston .... !? Why not worry about whoever Pioneer plays? Pioneer was up 60-13 in the 4th against LaVille, 9:03 to be exact, and Coach Berry still has starters in and wants more points. That's a mentality! It wasn't until 4:02 left and Pioneer had 66 points that subs were put in. Coaches can control the score! That's a fact and uncontested! as always, the game is better from_the_sidelines007
