  1. What are the objectives? Is it all about travel or is competitive balance in sectionals and and the state overall a factor? A couple of those scenarios really stack the north half the state.
  2. I think many would argue that 3A is the level playing field and not the 2A where they go to the state finals every other year no matter what. They were very competitive with some great 3A teams. Really, I think the decision should be left to the returning players. I can respect that they'd rather play better teams and more competitive football where success is a bigger challenge and not as much of a guarantee.
  3. Assuming some sort of relation to former North Montgomery stud QB BJ Schlicher who graduated in the late 90's? I believe he was runner-up for Mr. Football as well but opted to play baseball after high school.
  4. Just tracking the movement in 2A for fun. 6 teams leaving 2A North (2018 Sag Rating): Oak Hill (46.41), Madison Grant (25.75), River Forest (11.28), Gary Roosevelt (7.83), Taylor (1.32), Lake Station (0.00) 7 teams leaving 2A South (2018 Sag Rating): Southridge (53.14), Milan (38.28), Knightstown (36.99), Perry Central (30.26), Cloverdale (22.09), Indianapolis Washington (12.74), Park Tudor (6.92) 13 Schools Coming into 2A (2018 Sag Rating): 1. Pioneer 85.47 2. FW Bishop Luers 73.22 3. Andrean 71.11 4. Monrovia 51.87 5. Blackford 51.67 6. LaVille 50.4 7. Southmont 45.03 8. Eastside 42.21 9. South Vermillion 30.71 10. Wheeler 29.72 11. Seeger 20.08 12. Howe 16.45 13. Fairfield 6.57 2A is losing none of the top 10 Sagarin ratings from last season and only 2 of the top 25. The top 3 Sagarin ratings coming in would all be in the top 5 of the class based on last season and all 3 of those would figure to end up in the north part of the state. I bolded the 8 incoming schools you would assume will end up in the north half of the state which means at least 2 of the returning 2A schools will probably shift from north to south since only 6 of the schools leaving went north. The bottom line is that the northern route to state figures to get much, much tougher at least based on the very recent history of programs. Of course, things can change quite a bit year-to-year so who knows.
  5. It would be interesting to compare the teams moving out of 2A to the teams coming in but just by looking at a map I would guess Tipton is a lock to head north. You have teams like South Vermillion, Southmont, Monrovia, Seeger, and Howe coming into 2A as well that would all seem more likely to head south than Tipton would.
  6. If true, that's too bad. That rivalry is as good as I've seen in high school sports. Got to be disappointing for many players on both sides in the Class of '22 who may never get the chance to play in it. I'm surprised nobody has found a way to get that game scheduled still.
  7. I think I saw that Penn and Mishawaka won't be playing in 2020 or 2021. Is that true?
  8. I took a shot at 2A based on one of the iterations posted here: REGION: Whiting, Andrean, Boone Grove, Bowman Academy, Wheeler, Rensselaer Central, North Newton, Delphi NORTH CENTRAL: Bremen, LaVille, Rochester, Pioneer, Lewis Cass, Manchester, Wabash, Fairfield FORT WAYNE: Prairie Heights, Central Noble, Eastside, FW Luers, Woodlan, Whitko, Eastbrook, Bluffton MUNCIE-ISH: Eastern, Blackford, Lapel, Alexandria, Elwood, Tipton, Frankton, Winchester EAST CENTRAL: Centerville, Northeastern, Union County, Shenandoah, Triton Central, Eastern Hancock, Scecina, Heritage Christian WEST CENTRAL: South Vermillion, Speedway, Western Boone, Southmont, Cascade, North Putnam, Howe, Seeger SOUTHWEST: Evansville Mater Dei, North Posey, Paoli, Crawford County, South Spencer, North Knox, Linton-Stockton, Forest Park SOUTHEAST: Monrovia, Mitchell, Eastern Pekin, Clarksville, Tell City, Switzerland County, Providance, Milan Sorry for using geographic labels rather than the numbers. Please nobody jump my case if there is some stupid error here. I was bored and started trying to piece things together and a ton can change if even 1 or 2 teams shift classes. With these 64, the most compelling decisions seemed to be which team gets pulled into the Region sectional from outside of that area (I chose Delphi over Bremen/LaVille) and which central team gets pulled to go south for sectionals (I chose Monrovia over Trition Central). If you were to choose differently for either of those, you could draw a very different looking map.
  9. I assume this has been discussed on here before, but the two Elkhart high schools (Central and Memorial) are due to merge starting for the 2020 season which is the 2nd season of this classification. Each high school has about 1600 students and should be in 5A for next season. Combined in 2020, their attendance would be in the top 10 in the state and put them solidly in 6A. How is this going to be handled?
