  1. Thanks much. No cane but I'm a bit unsteady on the bleachers, especially without a handrail. We'll be hitting the road in about 15 minutes.
  2. This may seem like an odd question but it's not really for an 88 year old. Are there hand rails on the bleacher steps at the Reitz bowl. I looked at the field on Google Earth and couldn't tell for sure. Certainly a great looking field BTW. If I don't get an answer soon, I'll find out for sure in a few hours. :-)
  3. Both flocks of Thunderbirds are badly crippled this season so it's only fitting they can end the regular season going at each other. Eastern's Sag predictor rating is 2.6 while NC is at 4.2. Eastern is winless and NC has one win, that over the Indiana Deaf School. The two teams combined for 39 wins over the past two seasons so such a fall must be unusual to say the least. John Harrell has the game 28 - 27 Eastern at home. Sounds about right to me.
  4. That is true. It was his successor, Travis Wray, that was not renewed after one year.
  5. I have no idea about the future prospects the PH football program, but if this year's success is an indication of future success, then yes, I agree PH would be a nice addition to the Miner schedule. But as someone previously stated, PH had the opportunity but declined. I don't personally know that to be a fact. FWIW, I think the Miners would have the edge this year.
  6. The Eastern program has always been very fragile. This latest coaching change fiasco along with senior graduation losses has caused a real setback.
  7. Well, you all know how I love the Miners, and I would love to see us make a long run in the playoffs but realistically I think the season would be a success if we could win our first 2A Sectional title. Anything beyond that would be icing on the cake. We have a good shot this year but Mater Dei will be a tough out, not to mention a couple of others.
  8. I think the Miners will begin to pull away with their first offensive possession. Look for running clock in second half.
  9. In the West Vigo game, North Daviess QB Tanner Reed was injured and carted off the field on a stretcher with about 7 minutes to play. Anyone know his status?
  10. I would have edited the darn thing. I don't like making mistakes like that but there was no edit function on my post for some reason or other.
  11. I think when they built the former high school building in 1921 They officially added Stockton to the name. including Stockton Township. However, until recent years it was always called Linton High School. I don't like it either. Some folks think we are a consolidation.
  12. I was down to Booneville the last time the Miners played the Pioneers. It was 1945. Undefeated Linton, 9 - 0 - 1 defeated the Pioneers 21 - 6, one of two Booneville losses that year. The Miners were Southern Indiana Athletic Conference champions in 1945. Linton's only blemish was a 6 - 6 tie with Terre Haute Garfield. The Miners only gave up 24 points in their 10 games. I was a high school freshman and was in the band. The band traveled to all out of town games and performed on the home field in those days. We traveled with the team to South Bend to play SB Riley in the opening game the next year. Stayed overnight in SB. Great days to be a Miner. (And it still is) 😎 Another thing special about that year was a victory over arch-rival Sullivan 22- 0, the first win over Sullivan in 13 years. It was the traditional season ending Armistice Day (now Veterans Day) game, played at Sullivan that year. Touched off one of the wildest celebrations in the annals of Linton football. Several Linton fans remained overnight in the Sullivan County jail. 😁 Back to the 1945 Booneville game, an excerpt from the Linton 1946 yearbook states, "Our boys showed what they were made of in the next tilt by outscoring a fine Booneville team that lost only two games all season. This was perhaps the roughest game of the season, with Booneville outweighing our players at every position. Bud Peterson scored all three touchdowns in the 21 - 6 victory." (Peterson was a two - year, all - state halfback for Linton.)
  13. I was impressed with the Falcons offensive game. I think they will be back at Lucas Oil in November with a good shot to win it all. I don't see anyone in 1A stopping them.
