  1. In all these situations that have involved coaches in our state, I caution folks on a few things,  

    1.   Due process 

    This is why I hid a topic last week talking rumors of something at Glenn with Coach Barron 

    2.   What is reported by WNDU is just that, what they reported.   Which is summary of charges, nothing more, nothing less.  

    3.   We've always taken stance going back to Coach Tim Adams days , to allow due process and sticking with to reported facts that become available if they do.

    can the hope be to change course ?  


    i know, pipedream, and IM on the side of Until MCaskey's sell.....well.... but its ok to still have hope, even if Morgan Freeman believes it will kill you 

  3. For sake of conversation:  here is the breakdowns from 2 years ago (I left off Success Factor bump downs, like Kokomo in 4a) 

    https://www.ihsaa.org/sites/default/files/documents/2022-23 2023-24 Football Alignment.pdf

    4a:  Greenfield Central  1475 to Angola 795 

    3a:  Norwell 790 to River Forest 511 

    2a:  South Vermillion 510 to Eastern Hancock 379

    1a:   Park Tudor 378 to Indiana Deaf 94, or Traders Point 124

  4. Should 2100 body schools play schools of 1000 kids in tournament play? 


    That was the #1 reason to split into 6 classes, the discrepancy of Carmel to Munster was 3k kids 


    So, the question is what is the most realistic top end to bottom end enrollment wise that keeps the schools in competitive classes?

    I think I could get on board with this.  Too lazy, but can anyone outline what that would look like?

    I just did 5a into top 32 4a to show what that would look like 

    thats an awful lot of kid difference from Top to Bottom

    Makes sense, but for Fields’ contract situation. The Bears have until this May, I believe, to pick up the 5th year option, at a cost of about $25 million. Do you want your starting QB to be playing on an expiring contract? That’s a guaranteed “pulled hamstring.” 😉

    Quite a wild scenarios that could play out in Chicago

    This much I do know, if anything is leaked out of Chicago Hallas hall its because Poles wants it out there, other than that, Bears Brass is pretty darn good at the cloak and dagger under POLES, unlike PACE who was buffooned into bidding against himself in the infamous Tribusky draft.  


    August 2024, I believe Fields to be a Pittsburgh Steeler 

    August 2024, I believe Bears to have Caleb Williams 

    but as I have stated, I believe in Ryan Poles over everything, so if he decides to move off the #1 and trade down and keep and Fields or even extend him then im in and lets go and coach him up

    I believe they also have one guy specifically designated to monitor the line to gain equipment. You know, to make sure no one gets hit in the eye …


    VITAL part of any game!!


    Sadly that was not the most dangerous part of my night, the Halloween party ongoing in the WIRT gym that was being shared with our locker room took that prize.   However, I do remember a couple of Halloween costumes of gals in referree stripes, they were heading into the community bathroom as I was heading out, needless to say, we may have just grabbed all our stuff and took it to the track on our sidelines.

    Not everyone is outraged coach....just might have different preferences as to the focus on TV during a sporting event.  I am guessing most don't lose an ounce of sleep about it one way or another, but is water cooler talk to many.

    At the end of the day, I truly don't care much what other think about it...pro or con.  I just know I turn on a game to watch a game.  Others obviously are seeking more.

    We do agree on Tony Romo...

    I do like water cooler action

    A controversy most likely created by the media.  Not the Bears management and coaching staff.  Mr. Williams could be drafted by the Bears with the understanding he would be the backup to Mr. Fields.   

    This whole expectation that "elite" college quarterbacks are ready to play at an NFL level on practically day one is a fantasy.  For every C.J. Stroud-like rookie season there are a dozen rookie QB seasons that are mediocre to poor.


    CJ Stroud doesn't happen often and some say because of the infrastructure already in place in Houston was a good reason why he was successful

    Josh Allen was AWFUL early in career 

    Patrick Mahomes sat a year behind Alex Smith 

    Tom Brady Sat behind Drew Bledsoe 

    Drew Brees Sat 

    Lamar Jackson, Sat 

    Justin Herbert should of sat, but Ownership told trainer to stab Geno Smith in lungs with a needle 

    Love sat for YEARS behind Rodgers and Rodgers sat behind Farve

    If Bears end up drafting Williams 1st, he should SIT a year, if they trade down, stick with Fields and draft lets say JJ McCarthy (that is scenario I hope for) then JJ sits and you get a better OC in for Fields this year and we get to see what this guy actually can do with proper coaching.  Something IMO he has yet to be able to experience

    I can’t help but think that if it had been an official making a mistake of that magnitude he’d have to get a new identity, complete with plastic surgery, and move to Paraguay.

    Speaking of Striped folks 

    1.  Thought they did great, some early flags, but overall great

    2.  GLAD they held the hankeys in the pockets on those 2 holding calls late

    3.  What did you think about what seemed like 4 extra.crews on the sidelines?

    No, because Paul Rudd is cool:


    CORRECT.  Only answer that is acceptable !!! 


  10. NOW, onto actual GAME that was played


    HOW does NO ONE on 49ers staff understand the playoff OT rules.......and you LET MAHOMES have the ball last.   

    When you have the chance to bury one of the GOATS , you cannot MISS, or else,  you see what happens.

    Eh, it'll likely end in a train wreck like most of Hollywood's romances.

    Then she will write about the break-up in her next album.

    Wash, rinse, repeat.

    Her batting average speaks for itself.  Failed relationships have made her a ton of cash.

    Cynical approach on the eve of Valentine's Day,    Why not believe in romance and true love?

    Coach...I am going to surmise you are a big time "Swifty".  I can feel the emotion when you go into defense mode.

    You paint kind of an extremist view.  Can't it be somewhere in the middle?  How about I don't care who a player dates, but do I really need to see their face plastered on the screen when they catch a 7yd pass?  I'll live one way or another, but my preference is to keep the view on the field with the people competing on it.

    Its not the views of the celebrity...its the volume of the views especially when there is nothing meaningful that occurred to prompt the view.  Many of us grew up watching Jack Nicolson and Spike Lee on the sidelines for the Lakers and Knicks.  But they didn't get near the looks of Taylor in her suite jumping up and down for a first down.  

    I wasn't alive, but perhaps the TV camera's for the networks did pan to Marilyn Monroe every time Joe DiMaggio caught a fly ball or grounded out to 3rd.  Somehow, I doubt it though.....welcome to the age of social media.

    Less than 40 seconds of total tv time

    Less than 2minutes in the entire playoff run of Chiefs


    Giselle got the same treatment by the TV producers, who ulitmately are the ones in charge of the camera angles used in all games.   


    I attempted to get my daughter Swift tickets for Indy in Nov 24, fell short on lottery, couldn't tell you name of any songs, but could recognize a couple Im sure based on care rides with soon to be 15 year old, so don't think I am a swifty per the rules of Swift fandom.   


    This is nothing more than selective outrage and our nations newest click bait anger talking point to fill the internet spaces, I am just hear to show the facts that 30 seconds of TV time is enough to get folks to comment on this site, is just laughable considering the amount of similar shots that were on display for the Gisselle Pats days.....   but now its a problem for folks.   

    I think a true concern should be why they let Tony Romo ruin the broadcast for everyone, now that has merit

  12. odds at less than 50%?>. what does that even mean?   

    The fascination of folks commenting and "caring" about 2 adults and their choice of being together in a romantic relationship is quite amazing.   And yes, if you make a comment about it, then you care. 

    I just enjoy pointing out the hypocrisy of the selective outrage over Ms. Swift and Mr. Kelce.   


    They used to show GILSELLE ALL THE TIME too when Tom was doing his thing.   


    Lets see the archives around here lambasting that?   Oh right..... Not Taylor

    How many times did they show the other celebrities in the crowd and how many of them were allowed on the field for the postgame celebration?

    Hell, how many of the players n’ SPOUSES were permitted on the field during the trophy presentation?

    Lets just call this what it is…

    don't know, dont' care, literally has ZERO impact on the production and on field sporting event.   

    I pretty sure I saw Pat Mahomes holding a child on the stage receiving a trophy......wonder how a 3 year old got into his hands.  Impressive stuff.   


    Here is one from PRE TAYLOR SWIFT, as in LAST YEAR


  14. BIG fan of healthy competition when you have position battles. 

    Justin Fields has never had to worry about actual QB competition, you telling me a dude from the streets as a unsigned FA from D2 school is someone he had to worry about?   No chance.   

    Nick Foles?  Andy Dalton?   cmon man.   


  15. no sir,  that Gees had worked in Indiana previously was correct, Part of a powerhouse staff at Rensselaer in the 60's,  Coach Geesman, Coach Sidewidz, Coach Hummer, all future State Champion coaches and all in the Indiana Football Hall Of Fame.  

    4 Hall of Fame Coaches on that staff, Steve Brandenburg Rensselaer also on that staff, iFCA HOF as well, but not a state champion 

    Coach Geesman left Rensselaer to OHIO for the HC job before taking over PENN.

  16. Let this sink in:

    Andy Reid fired by Eagles on 12-31-2012, same day Bears fired Lovie Smith 

    Chiefs took 4 days to hire Andy Reid, Bears took 16 days to hire Marc Trestman

    Fun game to watch, other than all of the cuts to Taylor Swift.  I know she's America's Sweetheart, etc., but still...

    The whopping 30 some seconds was that crushing for you?  

    Literally every Super Bowl has cut aways to celebrities, etc.    There is like only 18 actual minutes of actual football plays on any given NFL game.    

    Just sayings


    Chiefs defensive improvements throughout the year was really something,  Hats off to now 4 time Super Bowl winning coordinator Steve Spagnola,  master class playoff run
