    New Pal vs Zionsville

    The Eagles have seen and competed against everything that New Pal will throw against them, but they haven't seen it all in the same game. Strength of opponents does matter, but I think New Pal survives.
  2. But, each year it still is a 40% probability. Just like flipping a coin. It could come up heads 4 times in a row, but the odds are still 50/50 on the next one. You DO however have a 2.56% chance of me googling "probability".
  3. Seems to me your odds are 40% each year. They don't go down just because it happened before.

    Sampson James

    When I said he'd never see the field at OSU, it was admittedly a knee jerk reaction to his performance on the field this year. Of course he's good enough to work his way up through the OSU system. Most certainly red-shirt as a frosh, then eventually a starting back Jr or Sr year. But I continue to wonder if he's as healthy as he was the 1st 6 quarters of the season. He was unstoppable against Plainfield and the 1st half of the Ben Davis game, then missed part of the 3rd quarter with an injury. He came back in but was used mostly as a decoy the remainder of the game.... hasn't responded since as I thought he would set the world on fire. Obviously defenses are keying on him, but I just expected more. This guy should be touching the ball 2/3 of the time..... Jet sweeps, screens, etc. Assuming he's healthy I think he immediately moves to #1 on IU's depth chart and would make a great compliment to Stevie Scott (perhaps the old fashion "I" formation?). Hopefully he's more driven and disciplined than his older brothers whom both were highly recruited but couldn't handle college life. Looking forward to watching the Hoosiers the next 4 years!

    Sampson James

    Probably a good move. He was never going to see time at OSU.

    What does PENN Have to do?

    I’d say Warren’s 4 straight state titles from 2003 - 2006 was the most dominating, but that’s just my opinion. It’s not that Indy athletes got better, the coaches built the programs and more athletes started playing the game. Kevin Wright at Warren is the perfect example.
  7. Congrats to the Bulldogs who outplayed Avon in every aspect of the game. On a night when you would think the running game would be the difference, the ‘dogs defense shut down Sampson James. I wonder if he did sustain some type of injury against Ben Davis as he doesn’t seem to be able to cut like he should. Regardless, Avon was well scouted and Brownsburg had answers all game long on both sides of the ball. Rematch looms in sectionals. Brownsburg is my new #2 team in the 6A poll!

    Gameday Scores

    Brownsburg 14 Avon 0 at half. ‘Dogs have dominated on both sides of the ball and as usual Avon is killing themselves with turnovers and penalties.
  9. Not really a must see. They are better known for closing multiple roads simultaneously and funneling all traffic onto Rockville road.
  10. The Avon Orioles head 5 miles north to challenge Brownsburg’s Bulldogs this Friday. This game is always circled on each teams calendar as it’s a long standing backyard rivalry. It means a little more this year as both are top 5 teams in 6A. Avon got caught looking ahead against HSE and the offense sputtered most of the night. The defense though stayed solid and kept the Royals frustrated all game. Brownsburg continued to dominate as they pounded HCC newcomer Franklin Central. But they feel there’s plenty to improve on. The winner will be the favorite for sectional 7 and the regional against the sectional 8 winner. Should be a classic! Who ‘ya got?

    I see you’re back in your “league”.

    AP Poll Week 3

    I think Avon is a top 5 team, other than that only Brownsburg next week and again in sectionals is really all that matters. I think whoever comes out of that sectional will win the regional and go up against either Warren or a vastly improved Ben Davis in semi-state.

    Ben Davis at Avon

    It will be interesting to see the stats. I'm sure Avon was over 100 yards in penalties and they were at critical times. BD also had ill-timed penalties and there were turnovers both ways. James tweaked his right knee in the 2nd quarter and wasn't effective the rest of the game. But he was nearly unstoppable for 1 1/2 quarters. Hope the knee is not serious. The Giants have plenty of weapons, they just need more experience. I think they will be top three in a more balanced MIC and provide more than Warren really wants come sectional time. Avon has a huge roady at Brownsburg in 2 weeks and they will undoubtably meet again in sectionals.
