  1. You hate that for the program, but it also really puts a lot of teams in a pinch at the last minute. I hope the teams are able to fill their open weeks. I did see at least Clarksville was able to fill their open date with Greenwood Christian. Salem has week 5 open and now so does South Decatur. Maybe that could work out.
  2. Thanks, Coach May. That is an overwhelming amount of support from all of the people who should be the most important in the decision making process when it comes to this stuff. How the IHSAA is unable to recognize this is quite unfortunate.
  3. They had upwards of 30 seniors on that team that went to semi-state. Many of them had been starting since they were sophomores. They had a lot invested in that group and it paid off. They will be very inexperienced this year.
  4. 3A in the far south looks pretty straightforward. They are really clustered pretty well together. Corydon North Harrison Salem Scottsburg Charlestown Madison South Dearborn Lawrenceburg Southridge Heritage Hills Mt. Vernon Gibson Southern Princeton Pike Central Washington Vincennes Lincoln
  5. Coach Kling was 20-11 in 3 seasons at Triton Central. That's a pretty solid run. It looks like a good hire for Mitchell. It doesn't appear as though there are any other changes in either conference. Who returns the most? I think I recall that WW was pretty young last year. Could they be the early favorite for the PLAC or does Paoli bring a lot back. SV was good as well. Do they return that talented QB? Can Brownstown repeat their championship performance? Does SC return enough to challenge Brownstown? That was SC's only loss in the MSC last year. Scottsburg had a nice year last season. Charlestown graduates an All-American at o-line. But they are always tough.
  6. Possibly. But as mentioned below, the IHSAA was discussing it to make it a sanctioned sport. Does that mean they'd handle it? In the thread, someone had posted a screenshot from the IHSAA minutes to discuss it.
  7. Agreed, there could be a lot to impact it. It may also depend if they decide to keep 34 in 5a again. For now, I see sectional 14 and 16 remaining the same, minus Jeff for 16. But depending on who gets in 5a, it could impact 14 with a possible additional team. I don't think there is anyone far enough south to add to 16, unless they wanted to bump East to it. It's just my opinion, but the all HHC sectionals just aren't as much fun.
  8. I saw this topic discussed some in a thread about a school shutting down their program for the time being and wanted to see if anyone had any additional info. According to that thread, 8 man football was on its way in Indiana. A few questions... When will this start? Which schools will be participating? Will they have their own state tourney? I think it is a great thing for the state and for smaller schools who may not have the numbers for 11 man football.
  9. How many are in each class currently? We could do a rough estimate of who's in each class. Also, if these are numbers from the fall count day, will they be accurate come the spring count day? And does the IHSAA use the spring count instead of fall? All the online schools and COVID stuff have made enrollments wacky at a lot of places. And spring enrollments in some places see bigger jumps after parents get tired of online school in the first semester.
  10. Are they going up the hill to Floyd since the hoops team is now better?? 😆 Kidding. Mostly... But that is really interesting. Just a few years ago, New Albany was over 2000. Floyd's enrollment seems to have been pretty steady around 1800. Looks like that sectional in 5a will remain pretty similar.
  11. 1 - I agree, but if the EIAC expanded to enough teams, they wouldn't necessarily have to play all teams in the EIAC. With the big school/small school split, they could stick to playing the teams they have to play in their division and playing whoever outside of that. Realistically, it's all hypothetical anyway because I don't see it happening. 2 - I also agree, but that is disappointing to hear what Frozen said about denial, at least for the time being. I do get it. Before Clarksville's exit, they only had 1 out of conference game and that was tough to schedule. Or at least the schedules were very locked in. Perhaps conference members enjoy the flexibility of 2 out of conference games.
  12. If you added JC & Madison without dropping Connersville and Rushville, those 4 schools would be competitive with each other. South Dearborn already plays both schools. They could be competitive with FC and, Greensburg and Batesville at times as well. No one in the EIAC is really competitive with EC or Lawrenceburg right now. Milan and Madison make sense from a location standpoint as well as the fact they are both independent, so it could make scheduling easier for both. Milan, though a very solid 1a program, is still a small school for that conference. Then again, they already play 4 EIAC teams plus Madison.
  13. Didn't JC try a few years back? Either they were denied or decided not to go forward. Or was it Madison was denied because JC didn't want to make the move and the EIAC wanted balanced divisions? That seems familiar. At least geographically speaking, I think it makes sense. JC would be the second largest school in the conference, I believe. I think Madison is enjoying their independence and freedom to schedule as they want. However, their week 1 opponent this year is the 5a defending state champ in Kentucky that would probably have beaten East last year, so there is a little irony in their new schedule.
  14. Looks like a great hire by JC. Best of luck to Coach V. Thanks for all the info, Tundra.
