  1. As some others have mentioned, our district is just going to find a way to incorporate these into the PD that we already offer in house on our PD days. It is silly and unfortunate, but I imagine many districts will do the same.
  2. I realize that I am being sucked in by the resident troll, but I refuse to let the program be spoken of in such a manner. Numbers are numbers, and that is fine, but what is most important is what you don't see in the significance of the sport to the many student-athletes who participate. The community loves football and supports it dearly. Like many rural communities, Madison has been hit heavily by the drug epidemic and has one of the highest rates of suicide in the state (did you read the article??). Football is all some of these kids have, win or lose. If you follow the Hoosier Hills Conference, you will know that the schedule has in fact been adjusted to allow the smaller programs the opportunity to schedule an out of conference game. Other conference affiliations have been considered but such a move isn't as simple as it seems. There aren't many programs in southeast Indiana with which to pair. Coach Morrison is a Madison alum and has been loyal and given everything he has for the program. Someone else will come in and do the same. Regardless of record, these kids and the community will support the coach and the student-athletes that participate. These points have been argued to you many times and you fail to consider anything besides shear numbers. If that is all we ever consider, we fail the young men we try to support with this game. For some schools with very small enrollments and low participation, perhaps it is something they must consider. Madison has nearly 900 students at the high school and regularly has 60-70 kids on the team. Football isn't going anywhere, nor should it.
  3. I know the travel issue is a complaint, but it will be neat to see some new matchups with the new sectionals.
  4. I was going off of the IFCA website. Homewood is a great program. I think a former Indiana high school coach is or was there. I agree with btowncoach that a Louisville or Cincy area team would be a nice addition.
  5. Penn has an open week 3 as well. That would be quite a good matchup. Perhaps they can arrange a neutral site in Indy to play.
  6. North Harrison job is posted on the school website.
  7. Yes, indeed. He was announced on Thursday as the new HC at Paoli.
  8. What will Jeffersonville do now that Coach Glesing has moved on to Paoli? The fact that they will be in 5a now will help their playoff prospects immensely.
  9. Coach Glesing is a great one. Congrats to Paoli.
  10. Charlestown It is on the district website.
  11. I like it but I personally think it would be better if the success factor took four years into account instead of just two. I think we have seen small public schools get penalized for having a rare crop of great talent, having a great run, then getting bumped. This has been across the board in other sports. I think 4 years gives a better idea of the consistency of a program and its need to be bumped up or not.
  12. Overall, SD has had a fair amount of stability. Wendling, then Martin, then Bell. Those are the only coaches since at least 2002. Not bad, especially compared to a lot of places. Sauley only being there one year is odd, but perhaps he decided to retire again. He's a good coach and has been in it a long time. As I recall, the other coaches left on their own volition. School boards can make a mess at many places, and perhaps this is one of those cases, but recent history doesn't seem to point in that direction.
  13. That is one man's opinion on Twitter, the land of all opinions. Parents need to get away from trying to dictate their children's lives. I hope my son plays, but if he doesn't I move on with life. I hope he finds something he enjoys, works hard and does well at whatever it is. Plus, Legos are cool.
