  1. Being a football forum, I'm only viewing potential conference membership through that sport. I simply think Elwood, MG, Frankton, Alex all seem to be trending down in football. Obviously, Eastbrook/Mississinewa are quality programs in my opinion. I think Oak Hill is competitive in the CIC, but isn't in the upper tier in regards to schools of similar size in the area, which is hidden by the fact they are members of a weak CIC. Schools I see as potential conference partners through some type of realignment are typically Lapel and/or Tipton...could throw in a handful of others like Hamilton Heights, Doah, Yorktown that could potentially make sense geographically, but make zero sense from a competitive standpoint as Elwood, Frankton, MG, Oak Hill, and Alex do not consistently provide adequate competition in football. Success in other sports should be taken into account as well, which is something up to each individual school's admin, but I simply do not see some football head coaches/AD's thinking it vital that they seek out competition against the CIC schools I mentioned unless it is for a homecoming game or to maintain a rivalry like Tipton/Elwood or Frankton/Lapel.
  2. I don't see the Madison County schools (+MG) in the CIC ever splitting...I don't see other schools wanting to join them either. They seem to be the weak link in the CIC. Hope their fortunes change this upcoming season...
  3. My bad on the above, must have spaced which tab I had opened when replying!
  4. https://www.hipod.com/home/ We use the hi-pod lite. After a couple of years we can set it up in 10-15 minutes and tear it down in the same amount of time as well. First time doing it was fairly lengthy, but its been a pretty good system for us. Captures Film to a mini-SD card, need to remember to delete each game before filming the next one to make the upload easier/quicker. I'm fairly tech savvy and that process is easier because of that. Company is great to work with. They quickly replaced a part that was under warranty, had it within a few days. We also had our custodial crew accidentally toss out the tv screen used with it and the company replaced it, but it did not fall under warranty. Also, gave us new sand bags at not extra cost. Hope that helps...
  5. Brewery is only a year old so be sure to swing in if you ever make it back down...It is right on Main Street!!
  6. Lapel has a new brewery called Pax Verum that serves excellent craft beer. Variety of food trucks on Friday nights as well for before or after game dining as well.
  7. 36 looks to be pretty competitive in my eyes as well. Eastbrook would obviously be the favorite. But Tipton, Blackford, Eastern (Greentown), and Lapel all have had strong records of late. Any of those schools get hit with graduation or have solid jv years recently?
  8. I was simply going on what made the most geographical sense and tried to look at a couple different scenarios versus what has been the precedent and perhaps if certain teams might shake up how it has been done in past years. Seeger for instance went South in the last 1A cycle, but they had been North for previous years. Will they go North and pull some teams that typically go up to Gary? Or will they stay South and keep some sectionals largely intact? Frankton/Lapel in the same school district pairs them together if the precedent remains and will that impact either being pulled to Ft. Wayne, possibly Lafayette, or will they stay South? Just some interesting geographical scenarios and I enjoy the conversation...hoping to get it started!!

Curious about thoughts as we get closer to the sectional release date... 5.pdf 4.pdf 3.pdf 2.pdf 1.pdf
