  1. According to school board agenda, Mark Hidalgo will be the Whiting HC. https://go.boarddocs.com/in/whiting/Board.nsf/Public
  2. Ben Davis made it to the Semi-State 5 out of the last 6 years. I'll take that over regular season wins.
  3. There were 2 sectionals where all the teams were from the same conference and they're all from around Indy. They could have been split up. I'm not saying there has to be zero repeat games, but it can be reduced. Lafayette Jeff as in the same sectional as Merrillville. It's doable.
  4. It would be nice to see 6A sectionals made up of teams that didn't play each other during the regular season.
  5. Seems like it is final. They were voted out/released by the MIC. https://cbs4indy.com/sports/carmel-center-grove-voted-out-of-mic-petition-to-join-hcc/
  6. The ref's call on whether or not the player/ball is in our out of the endzone gets more complicated with the player's decision to down the ball or run it out. It will create more controversy since it could have a major impact on a game.
  7. When you play 2 bigger schools (that are good) back to back, that can be a lot of wear and tear on a football team and increases the risk of injury. They get to play Merrillville while they're still fresh. Andrean definitely gets better kids than the average 2A team, but depth can be an issue when a key player goes down. Being early in the season, may not be a factor come tournament time.
  8. When Andrean moves to CP and drops Merrillville from their schedule, it will be a rivalry. The game will be competitive most years, but it's tough to establish another rivalry.
  9. Too many coaches confuse hamburger drills to see who's tough with teaching tackling. The kids are too far apart going at full speed with no preparation. I don't care if you work on tackling for 6 months, if that's the form a player is going to use, they never get in a drill like this. Video the drills that are much more controlled and show mom and dad why their child is not ready for tackle football. If they still insist on getting their kid killed, show them this video. #NotOnMyWatch
  10. True, but then you play in the sectional championship after 2 weeks off. That's a long stretch for high school kids. I think one week off does a lot for the bigger schools (that play a big school schedule) especially if you're playing a team for the second time.
  11. The old Hobart Brickie Bowl. They were the team to beat. The game day watering of the field (it was so wet, I slipped and fell and I was coaching.). A full house back in the day. Concrete bleachers with another set of bleachers stacked on top just seemed like big time football. Very first varsity game I started as a player was there and a couple of games as a coach. A lot of memories.
  12. We'll know football has arrived if those schools start adding football. Maybe Texas 6-man or 8 man.
  13. I know of one officiating crew at a Northwest Indiana game that had a female ref. We need more, so we better start getting them from wherever we can find them.
