  1. What you're doing now is making excuses. The point is for you to see that it's not so easy to just pull your starters. There are reasons why a coach doesn't just pull his guys out. Now that the shoe is in the other foot, one would hope you could see that.
  2. They're not back ups and jv if their starting. By definition they're starters and, by your own rules, they must come out in a blow out situation. No excuses and no exceptions.
  3. The only question is how long will Winamac leave their starters in?
  4. Leaving the starters in is a two way street. If I'm coaching I'm not sending my under sized and not completely developed freshman out there so your seniors can feel better about themselves and say yay we scored. I've seen that done and seen the freshman's career ended by a gruesome knee injury. Also, saw the senior who hit the kid stand over him and celebrate like he'd just won the Superbowl. There are ways to attempt to hold the score down without pulling all your starters. Like not giving the ball to v for best player/s. I don't have the stats in front of me but if be willing to bet Jack and Danny didn't have 25 second half runs in the second half of games all last year. Most games 0. So, here's an idea. How about we leave player personnel decisions to the coaches on both teams? They know more about their respective players than you it I do.
  5. What were they being called out on exactly? You don't want the score run up? Play better defense. You don't want shutout, play better offense. It's not Pioneer's coaches job to worry about your feelings. Their job is to put their people into the best possible position to be successful, both in life and on the field. Part of that is setting goals. If their players have goals that you don't want them to achieve, then try and stop them. It's really that simple. I really have a hard time understanding how their attempting to set records is so offensive. Why do they keep the records for if not to give teams something to shoot for?
  6. You guys who continue to point out that Laville had guys out as well are missing the point. The reason I brought up the injuries to the Panthers was becausev someone said before the game that the Panthers haven't any depth. The fact that they had those guys out disproved that theory. No one question whether Laville had depth or not so the defensive post that " we had guys out too" is meaningless. But if it makes you feel better, fine. Whatever.
  7. Right in front of ref who is looking right at him and whose job it is to watch for that. You'd almost have to purposely turn a blind eye to it. Only one bad call or non call among several.
  8. By the way and for the record Pioneer won without their starting guards, TE, OT, middle linebacker and SS and still won by 3 TDs So much for not having any depth
  9. It's referring to the fact that refs in the tournament are assigned and not hired locally. That one last night was one of the worst officiated games I'ever seen. And I've seen a lot of poorly officiated games.
  10. I think the Panthers would be fine with a rematch. I mean, the IHSAA assigns officials in the tournament still, correct?
  11. How many teams are? Those teams are a few of the best in the history of 1A football. Those teams were blowing teams out by 50 points at halftime. Sometimes earlier. Had running clocks in nearly every game for two years straight. So if they beat teams by fifty now in four quarters, are they half as good as last year? I know every fan of every other team is anxiously awaiting their chance. This isn't it. Look, the seniors on this team have played in three state championship games. The juniors have won two straight state championships. You don't do that with one or two guys. Some of these guys talents were subsumed by the presence of the greatest player in 1A history. Now, is their time to shine.
  12. I think if you look back at the stats for the past several years, you will see that the Panthers have not had a bugaboo for several years. Don't look for them to start one now. Panthers pull away in this one. Again.
  13. Pioneer 2017. Fullback/middle linebacker broke his leg at semi-state.
