  1. 1. Just depends on how many crews apply I guess. 2. God I hope not. 3. You gotta know, hey we’re young, we’re learning, we’re getting better, this crew sucks and it’s not going anywhere. I would think it would be pretty easy to tell and make the determination based on what you know.
  2. Sagarin, MaxPreps, and CalPreps all agree that the top teams in 1A, 3A, and 4A are all better than the top team in 5A. Did you guys enjoy the debate last night?
  3. My debate is spirit of the rule vs advantage gained? Do we have a definitive ruling yet? This is a local team, local crew.
  4. Pretty sure I’d have my own file cabinet in North Meridian. 😉
  5. BNL NA Seymour BHSN FC is going to have to prove they can win a game when it counts to me. Not passing judgement just looking at history.
  6. My fire pit is always open, and I’m always down for some ice cold Coca-Colas around the fire. But there are rules: 1) No effing phones, embrace the atmosphere and fellowship. 2) Farts are encouraged because farts are always funny 3) Feel free to embellish any story, so long as it adds to the story. 4) You will be made fun of, you will be laughed at, as will everyone else, don’t be a twatwaffle.
  7. I wasn’t replying to you, just some general observations. Glad Coach Bragg got them headed on the right path.
  8. It might pain some of you guys to know how dire the situation is with officials. There are several school each week using throw together crews, many times with guys who lack sufficient experience to handle a V game. No clue who the crew was at East or if this was even the case but I can tell you East was one of those schools. Example my crew retired after last season, we had games scheduled into 2028. We were one of two crews in our small association. Larger associations lost even more. IOA guys have told me they’ve lost 12 in the last three years. That’s a ton of experience, mentors, trainers, etc. leaving the profession. I have had several long time officials ask me about my experience, have I missed it, etc. because we’re all old and frankly I’ve reached a point in my life where other people’s children are no longer a priority for me.
  9. The situation at BC has been a long time coming. Revolving doors in the AD’s office and from what I understand the principal’s office is what leads to this. I made the comment to some friends after working a MS game over there last year, how long before they give up on Football? It was clearly seen as something to just get over. I’m a Football guy, I want to see Football thrive, and that’s clearly not the case at BC.
  10. FWIW Castle High School is it’s own school corporation. It’s in Warrick County, Evansville schools are all in Vandenburg County.
  11. I’m just trying to help. FWIW I thought the crew at Seymour/Brownstown did a great job.
  12. Put your money where your mouth is: https://www.ihsaa.org/become-official
  13. IHSAA ADDRESS & PHONE NUMBER Indiana High School Athletic Association 9150 Meridian Street Indianapolis, Indiana 46260 (Phone) 317-846-6601
  14. You’re not the only one having issues with NFHS website and app.
  15. I'm behind, need to gamble a little. East BNL BHSN Seymour Silver Creek
  16. I seem to recall a trip in my early years of officiating to a certain southeastern Indiana school known for both football and band being told by the AD: ”the band will not be off the field before halftime is over, but you can’t flag us, because nobody effs with our band.”
  17. I was down there at the beginning of the season for a MS game. Played two games and I don’t recall an issues with numbers, but frankly I’m old and can’t remember what I was doing five minutes ago.
