    ah, gotcha, my bad. I coach at the middle school level in NP, Shelbyville has had low numbers at that level for years. They've always seemed to sort it out and become competitive at the HS level until this season. I do know that Shelbyville had 18 players out with injury the week we played them. They have been bitten hard by the injury bug this season.

    This is my problem with you. Again, throwing out statements without knowing facts. In the last 11 years, Shelbyville has had 4 losing seasons. They were 7-3 in 2016 and in 2017. They were 9-2 in 2015 and in 2008. They were 9-3 in 2009. And they were 11-1 and lost in the Sectional Final in 2007. While Shelbyville is down this year, I think categorizing them as "historically bad" is dead wrong.

    I will worry about Michigan City if that time comes. Right now, Zionsville is who I am thinking about.

    Just out of curiosity, have you seen New Pal play? You keep saying "considerably better athletes" . . . CG did force New Pal to throw the ball on several downs.

    play clock

    If you don't have 5 officials it should be 25 seconds?

    clock was running at the time of the injury

    play clock

    Ok, I guess my question is, does the clock start after an injury? Does it matter if the injury is by the team that is leading? And as for the 25/40 second clock . . . is the HS play clock always 40 seconds?

    Nope. They instituted a 25 second play clock for the final two minutes. When we protested, the white hat said, “my game, my decision.” It’s this kinda crap that causes refs to be viewed as the enemy. This was a 7th grade game, btw. We’ve used the scoreboard play clock at most of our 8th grade home games. I don’t think I’ve seen one on the road this year. In the future, it is a question I will ask pre-game. what causes the difference between 40 seconds and 25? Also would like to know the procedure for an injury in final two minutes by wiinning team and losing team?

    You would think IHSAA refs would know better.

    play clock

    Middle school game . . . refs meet before hand and ask if coaches want a play clock. I've coached at middle school level for 5 years and can never recall this conversation happening. We either use the digital play clock (rare), refs keep play clock on the field (rarely), or no ref gives a darn about a play clock (most common). We want a play clock. Opponent does not. Refs do not enforce a play clock for entire game, until we are up 14-12 with two minutes to go. Opposing coach comes on the field and now wants a play clock. Thoughts on this entire scenario?
  11. wow NP JV just beat Shelbyville JV 80-0. Punt block for TD, INT return for TD, and two punt return TD . . . and that was midway through the third quarter.
  12. Greenfield Central is the only team in the conference that is 5A by enrollment, but have had 9 winning seasons in 46 years.
  13. Shelbyville had 18 players out on Friday. Lost their QB and LB at some point in the last 10 days. NP third drive, Bears align without a CB on the NP sideline. Shelbyville calls TO. They come out of the TO and still do not have a CB. Big pass play inside the 5. Still don't fix it. TD on next play, but they call ineligible man downfield field because QB throws to uncovered WR instead of running the run play. Due to numbers NP has had to play freshmen in fourth quarters vs GF and Shelbyville in order to not burn JV/Freshmen quarters. Just brutal. I coach at New Palestine Junior High. Shelbyville has always struggled at the youth level and middle school level. Last year they combined 7/8 and played down. But they always seemed to compete at the HS level. Seems to be catching up to them.
  14. Shelbyville. Ugh. Score was 46-0 after one quarter. Running clock started with 9 mins to go in THE SECOND QUARTER. Just awful pick sixes, blocked punts, you name it
  15. Wow. MV doubles up PH. I thought the Arabians would have a let down week, but not a home loss.
