  1. Very true. You might as well maximize it for recruiting. I dont understand how social media folks make the money they do and I worry about outside influencers pitting players against coaches. But if this keeps college athletes in college for four or 5 years, I can see a benefit
  2. Public school - private school. If Chatard was in 3A, 3A in the north would be weak, too..right?
  3. Thanks, everybody. Next up. I'll need to know 'What is Tik Tok?"
  4. As I know you know, DT, Merrillville went through the same racial and demographic changes a few years earlier. It affected their baseball and softball teams, which were state class in the 1990s and are now at the bottom of the (DAC) conference. But it didnt affect the Merrillville football team, obviously. . Griffith can play with Lowell. They schedule them. They fit in the NCC. Thats where their tradition is. Everybody in the NCC will look up to Andrean when it comes to elite players but Griffith and Highland are so close they are almost the same place. .
  5. I'm old. What exactly is Facebook, everybody?
  6. Good question. Winning a lot obviously does not necessarily mean your kids get o the 'next level' It does at big schools but not at small ones. If you want to run a single wing misdirection offense to win in 1A or 2A, that has great value to the boys, the school and the community. Your guys may not be big or fast enough to play in college anyway. To win in 6A you have to run a college or pro style offense and the 'next level' will be within reach of some of your boys. But a coaches' basic job is to organize, teach and win.
  7. You gotta love the eyes of the Wildcat. This is great news and the first Hanover-Lowell game (Hanover is Lowell's border neighbor to the north) will be standing room only.
  8. But you are ALWAYS better of with a bye than a game. You cant be eliminated on bye week. Nobody can get injured on a Friday that you dont play. Ask offensive linemen who play every offensive down for nine weeks if they want a bye week (or) two before the playoffs.
  9. Thanks, NLC............But it is hard to grasp. Why did 3 teams drop out of 6A? I dont think there were 29 teams in 6A the last 2 years.///I'm pretty sure there were 32. If exact enrollments fluctuated, why did some teams drop to 5A?
  10. Andrean did not move up to 3A like they were supposed to so everybody in Sectional 33 has a problem. 😒
  11. There should be 32 teams in 6A.. The 32 teams with the biggest enrollment. A 3-team sectional isnt a sectional. Its one game for somebody Let Class 1A have the byes/ They need them. There's five eight teams sectionals in 1A
  12. DT; As you know the Hammond schools have little chance to compete against Crown Point, Merrillville and Lake Central in football. Morton was state rated in 4A And DAC teams are not going to drop natural rivals CP-Lowell, LC-Munster, Merrillville-Andrean to play Hammond or Elkhart. Why would they?
  13. I hadn't seen her play before this year. She's good defensively at 3B and her bat is coming around. I think next year she'll probably be their shortstop. The big game now is (barring a sectional upset) Crown Point at Lake Central....for the regional title on June 1...I think the winner of that game gets to the state title game.
  14. They could've called their gym 'The Ice Box' And if they could build a dynasty..it could be 'The Ice Age' 😉
  15. It was a weak choice, DT....and there are two others Wolves already in NW Indiana. I wanted the school to continue to be Hammond high as well. (and as you know, 'Bulldogs' is taken. I just wanted to send you a couple of photos of someone you may know. The battle for softball supremacy in Lake County goes on!)
