  1. Numerous players on our team have been hit by “close contact” quarantine about 4-5 times this season. (Not to mention the regular injuries.) We have had a cancelled game and opponent changes as late as Wednesday, so this has been a difficult year. Please keep in mind no matter what we are going through, we have an impact on these kids. The tweet below has been the a bright spot for us this season.
  2. I heard an ESPN analyst say he would welcome NCAA football making the permanent move to the spring. That way you could see football year round. There are obvious questions with this. Will the number 1 pick (or top guys) play in the spring? However from the school perspective it should be a no brainer! Play Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays. The tv revenue for the schools would skyrocket so no programs would have to be cut. If high school were still in the fall it would allow coaches to watch more players in person. It is an interesting thought and I would love it, but I
  3. HS English position open also. Apply sooner rather than later.😀
  4. Coach Leitzman is a great coach and the Springs Valley players are saddened to see him go. We know he will be successful in the future. I don’t coach basketball but I knew we could always chat about the game anytime. For those interested in the head coaching position, we have teaching openings in Social Studies and PE/Health. If you have any or all of these licenses check out the posting on the IDOE site.
  5. I remember playing at Hanover College and losing on average 12 lbs each practice. I was a d-lineman and sweat a lot, but still players have to consume a lot of water!
  6. With the school year winding down, I am checking to see if there are any confirmed boys basketball coaching changes? Hopefully we will have sports in 2020-2021!
  7. 2001 South 4A Semi-State Jasper vs. Cathedral Jasper was down 21-7 with about 10 minutes to go and came back to win 27-21 in regulation. Cathedral had fumbles on back to back possessions then had a 3 and out to give us a chance.
  8. You never know what a district’s policies are. Maybe wanted too but couldn’t. Maybe he was MS coach. If you have information please tell us. Reckless is bad.
  9. Congratulations to Coach Scott Buening who was named AD at Southridge. It looks like he will continue to be the program’s football coach. https://www.14news.com/2020/03/20/buening-named-athletic-director-southridge/
  10. Springs Valley Jr/Sr. High School currently has teaching openings in Social Studies and Special Education. At this time, we have a paid JV/Varsity assistant football opening as well. There will be opportunities to coach other sports as well. Please see the school website for application instructions. http://www.svalley.k12.in.us/sv-employment
  11. Pardon me, but I might be a bit ignorant. @Muda69 makes a great point. Speaking purely from a former AD perspective, basketball and football keep other sports alive at many schools. Hence the reason many schools don’t want to cut football even if they aren’t Conference or Sectional contenders. Swimming, wrestling, tennis, golf, track, etc are not paying the bills, or coaches salaries. Football and basketball do that.
  12. Both positions have some positives and negatives. I am interested to see the direction each school chooses to go. MTV- can the new coach (whoever it will be) build on what Coach Brunson was building.? Will the move to the PAC help or hurt them? I would guess help, but you never know. SS- can the new coach turn things around? Will the shakeup in the PAC help them? I am not sure it will. I know SS has had success in the past.
  13. Evansville Reitz has to be a top contender. The bowl is pretty sweet but not the best venue for opposing fans.
  14. So long as those students enroll at Reitz before they attend one class at MTV, I am pretty sure there is nothing MTV can do.
  15. Putting on my old AD hat... Transfers from MTV to Reitz would be subject to the “past link” rule making them immediately ineligible or limited eligibility. If that’s what MTV wanted to do, and assuming that is still a rule.
  16. Please remove this post due to the poor spelling of the word lose!

    My concern would be the physicality of professional football over high school football. Will an 18-19 year old body be able to hold up for an entire season? What position would be the easiest to transition from HS to XFL? Personally, I think WR or DB. Physically they could be comparable. Mentally the OC or DC will be in their ear telling them what to do up until the snap so not too much you have to learn.
  18. Admittedly, I do not know very much about travel baseball, so you point is taken. Can you also answer me this question: What restrictions are put on travel baseball after the season is over? I am not trying to be an @$$. I do not know. Is it up to the coach? Is there more oversight? I would love more information so I am more knowledgeable about more sports. Thanks.

    I personally thought the XFL was pretty entertaining. I like many of the rule changes and transparency. The speed of the game was great and it felt like there weren't too many commercial breaks. The product on the field was much different. There is a clear drop off from the NFL to the XFL (Lots of dropped passes and too many missed tackles just to name a couple). I think it will be a fun season, serve as a NFL minor league, and I hope it will stick around for some time. Thoughts????
  20. In the words of legendary Jasper Football coach Jerry Brewer, “I teach PE. Gym is a building or a person.”
  21. Michigan State, Oklahoma, Utah? Looks like all their QBs are seniors.
  22. This entire situation has made education even harder for educators and coaches who are the opposite sex as their students. I know many teachers feel as if they must always have a witness with them after school hours. This isn't a sad situation. It is a depressing one.
  23. Oops! Illinois should be ashamed! Haha! I think the change was still good for the majority of the Big 8 schools. Moving to the PAC and SIAC is going to benefit these schools especially in the postseason tournaments.
