  1. Linton was actually in the SIAC before Memorial. They were members from 1936 until 1951. Memorial was finally allowed in 1947, five years after the IHSAA bigots finally allowed Catholic and African-American schools into full membership. Now you're not just a hat rack...
  2. Castle 42 - Lincoln 10 (expect a tough night for the Alices) North 24 - Bosse 18 (Bulldogs should make this game close) Memorial 41 - Harrison 0 (Coach Moe said the Warriors are banged up this week) Reitz 24- Central 7 (if their QB is out Central may not score, things not sounding good out on 1st Ave) Mater Dei 28 - Jasper 17 (clear Game of the Week in SIAC - let's GO catechized Cats)
  3. Me neither. Give QB1 all the reps until the starters are pulled. The schedule gets a little softer the next few weeks, so he'll get the kinks worked out and be ready for Castle in Wk. 9.
  4. I don't think I can remember a time when MD did not come out ready to play the week after a game like last week. Coach G seems to have soften a little bit (at least publicly) but I suspect he peeled some paint off the walls the last few days.
  5. I haven't seen any film and won't, but playing past the whistle is not inherently dirty in my opinion unless its coupled with something more, like taking a guy backwards over the pile, etc. Finishing a pancake block after the whistle is not dirty. I tend to think that with the increased emphasis on player safety, officials seem to be keeping a tighter reign on things and are generally pretty quick to call a PF to keep things in check.
  6. Castle, Memorial and Reitz won't have any problems. Bosse at North could be a good game. The game of the week is the battle of Wildcats at the Bowl. My Tigers need MD to bounce-back and beat Jasper. I'm guessing Coach Goebel will have them ready to go.
  7. I would have MD above Castle based on the MD win.
  8. Pretty dominating performance by Memorial. Other than the bad punt snap the game was never really in doubt. Nice win for the Tigers. 5 in row feels good.
  9. If I see you watching GS on your phone I will punch you in the throat....
  10. I heard he apologized to Coach Hurley. LOL. Guessing that won't ever happen again...
  11. That's how my predictions usually turn out too. That 2018 game was the "dart" game, when a few MD players had the brilliant idea to snapchat pictures of Branson Combs and Michael Lindauer with darts in their faces the week of the game. Of course our kids printed them out and had them all over the locker room. Branson had 5 catches for 200 yds & 3 TDs (74, 24 & 55 yds.), plus a pick 6 (all before halftime). Probably the most dominating performance by 1 player that I've seen in my lifetime in the MD-RM series. He reminded me of Jefferson in Fast Times at Ridgemont High that night... LOL. You are 100% correct... the last 2 games have definitely been very evenly matched and could have easily gone either way. Thankfully we have been much better since we laid the egg in Wk. 1 against Jasper. Getting 2 D starters back against Central who hadn't played the first 2 weeks also helped us. Should be a good game. I haven't seen any film on MD but I know you guys are very, very solid and will be a big challenge. Just wish the game was at Enlow...
  12. No radio OR stream. Rumor has it that Bishop Siegel will be parachuting down with the game ball and the Knights of Columbus Airborne Division in full formation just prior to KO.
  13. This might be the toughest week of the season so far to pick the games. Jasper and Castle should have no trouble, but the other three games could go either way in my opinion. Unlike past years, I haven't watched any film, so I know little about a few teams, but here's my thoughts: I would not be surprised to see VL beat Central. Central has played a tough schedule so far, but whether it was players out with injury, contact tracing, or whatever, they really struggled Friday night. I expected a much closer game, especially after MD only scored 24 and gave up 14 against the Bears in Wk. 1. Being 0-3 will challenge the morale, so let's see how Central responds. Seeing some posts that may suggest things are unraveling a little bit. I would favor Reitz over North, especially if the game at Jasper was closer than the score indicated. North doesn't seem to have that break-away kind of player this year. It's really a shame. Enlow would be rocking this week, but instead we get Memorial hosting MD at Harrison's Romain Stadium. The last 2 years this game has been very low-scoring. I agree with TigerFan20 that it will come down to the trenches. Memorial has an explosive player in Xavier Tyler, who MD will have to key on. I'm not sure why, but Memorial doesn't seem to be calling many WR screens this year. Memorial has a nice kicker, but the snap & hold have been a little spotty so far. I could see the game coming down to a FG.
  14. Didn't the Lee brothers all give up their final HS wrestling seasons and head to Penn State after Christmas?
  15. Central must have COVID issues. Only 35 players? I was a little surprised this wasn't more of a game. Big game at the Bowl.
  16. Everybody looks good against Washington.... GS is good, but this is no surprise...
  17. That's the plan. Me, wife, and my pack-mule Doberman.
  18. Boonville basketball concession is the best I've ever seen.
  19. Have you done the Adventure Hiking Trial loop in Harrison Crawford SF?
