  1. I hope so, he has helped me more than once over the years. Great Coach and always been a great friend to me. Tim Miller
  2. When I coached in North Carolina there was something where I believe each school had a choice between scrimmage or extra regular season game. If you chose the extra game 33% of the gate went to what would be the IHSAA and the schools had to split the other. Think is was called an "endowment" game.

    Nate Andrews To Western

    He is still at Lapel. Great hire for Western. He is a great coach, great person, and great role model for his players. Best of Luck.
  5. Article in today's Decatur Daily Democrat ByJim Hopkins What a welcome to Decatur for Nate Andrews, and his family, received Tuesday night when he attended the North Adams School Board meeting. Wow! I wish I could say I was surprised. The way things have gone for this school board, something like this was almost predictable. It was supposed to be a big night for Nate, who was to have his picture taken as the next head football coach at Bellmont High School. Somehow, he was drawn to this job, this community. He was drawn enough to leave a place that has been a happy home for him and his family for four years. He has kids that he loves and hates to leave. He has a program he brought up to a high standard, winning a sectional. His wife had a full-time teaching job, which she would not have in Decatur. He made the Lapel wrestling program matter, raising it to 30 grapplers from five. He was leaving all of that, and maybe 40K a year, to come to Decatur, to be a football coach to many, and a weight and conditioning coach to athletes in all other sports, and a mentor and friend to many more. This quality man was ready to jump in and give his all, and add to the greatness of sports in Decatur, at Bellmont High, and his goodness to the equation of our community. And how could you keep him out of the wrestling room? A quality guy and a former state champ ... well, he would fit perfectly with the best wrestling staff in the state. I can't think of a better fit. I can't believe Bellmont could get a better guy. This man could bring Bellmont football right back. He's a builder and a grower. What a perfect choice by our administrators! And he came to Decatur looking for a sign, something which would tell him his very difficult choice to come to Adams County was the right one. Now .... after his credentials being questioned, and the 3-2 vote ... I just hope, somehow, he finds a way to look past all of that and come on in. If Nate Andrews backs out — and absolutely no one here or anywhere could blame him — it will be a huge setback for Bellmont football and for Bellmont sports in general. It's something that will be very difficult to recover from. Maybe impossible. Thanks to the board action, the damage it did on Tuesday may be irreparable. Since that fiasco, which again puts Decatur on the state map for the wrong reason, a lot of area men have reached out to Nate, including a friend of Nate's at Ball State, Steve Schumm, who was looking forward to coaching with Andrews here. Maybe those contacts were the positive sign Andrews was hoping for on Tuesday. Those two who voted NO on Andrews are obviously agenda driven, though figuring out Michelle Stimpson's agenda is a bit harder. Basically, it seems she votes NO. She voted against Dale Manis as Athletic Director, thinking that would be a position to eliminate! Deb Bergman ... what is Deb Bergman, wife of the coach that quit and started this whole chain of ridiculous events, doing even voting on this matter? She should have disqualified herself. It could be that these two either want to control things, like being in on interviews, or to run off some very talented administrators. There have been administrators in the past at BHS who needed to move on. They did. They guys we have now — Scot Croner, Dale Manis, Aaron Baker, and Superintendant Wiley Sirk — get very good grades from me. After talking with them, it is obvious to me that they are not ready to hand over their keys and head for the exit. Toney Bergman was upset with his teaching assignment. He got mad and quit. He's gone, and unless they get rid of the current administration, he's not coming back. Ironically, one of the items that was a complaint of Stimpson at the meeting was the fact that Andrews would have to take a "practice" test to gain the history credential he needed. Toney Bergman did not have his credential to teach health, and put it off for years before getting it, with some prodding. Bellmont has won a state title in football. We know it can be done. If it can be done, Nate Andrews, the former state wrestling champ, can do it. We have the people here, the tradition of excellence, that make it possible. I'm betting that Andrews is a tough guy, that he's come through the smoky maze before and emerged with a successful nod. I'm still hoping he's buying Decatur, and Bellmont High. We need him!
  6. Kyle Johnson is a great person and great coach.
  7. I have Greenwood before also. I guess my question is how long until 3A Yorktown decides to jump out for the same reasons Greenwood is looking. And then how long does it take Delta to leave? Its the end of May got to have something to talk about:)
  8. I think some possible canidates are Jay County Muncie South

    Indiana Applicants in Ohio

    If you would read the newspaper it said that listed next to the applicant is there most RECENT school. Tim Miller
  16. I do not know all of the details surrounding Coach Stirn's situation but surely you can move past taking a shot at him with verizon jokes Tim Miller
  17. I would like to see the following: All sports will fall under four classes that exist in every sport other than football. In football one or two regular season games will be added to the schedule ( this will be the extra income for travel during the tournament one of them could be an endowment game where the IHSAA gets the gate). At the end of the regular season 64 teams will be chosen out of each class for the football tournament. A panel will be formed to pick these teams. Saggarin can be a factor. After the top 64 teams from each class are picked they will be diveded into "Big"school and "small" school divisions. Example Big 4A and small 4A. The thirty two teams then will be seeded with geography not being a factor. We would then have 8 tournaments instead of five. The bad part from my standpoint is the eight state champions but we would have six when we add another class. It also keeps all sports consistent among classes. It means we do not need to add another class. Some teams would not know if they were going to go big or small in their classes until it was determined who has made it. Thoughts

  19. I agree this is a dead issure. The nations capital is named after Washington and he owned slaves his entire life. Examples like this are everywhere.
  20. I know in NC during the spring we could have kids in Shoulder pads and helmets. We were not allowed to do this until 2 weeks after all spring sports had started. A player who practiced one day for another spring sport was not allowed to participate in "spring football". There were a few weeks mixed in during the spring and summer where we were only allowed to "no pad" practices. In all the workouts in the spring there were not allowed to be more than 21 players on the field at a time.
  21. I know that anyone that is interested in seeing the two player rule being broke just show up at SOS camp, schools 2A-5A are breaking it. To his credit Coach Scheib reminds everyone about the rule. Regardless the rule is broken.

    What if...

    How about this. We have four classes in every sport except football. Football should be no different. Then for the state tournament (football) it gets divided. Big 4A and Small 4A. Big 3A and Small 3A. Big 2A and Small 2A. Big 1A and small 1A. That would give us a couple more regular season games. The class division which is done by enrollment then can be updated every year. I would love to see the pairings seeded in each class also (just my opinion).
  24. I know that they used too and then dropped it in the 80's
