    Seeded sectionals

    Doesn't the HS postseason tournament benefit from a generous agreement with the Colts/powers that be on the use of Lucas Oil Stadium?

    Seeded sectionals

    Six rounds of state tournament football is too long. That's a total of 15 games to the championship for the lower class, smaller schools who have the highest percentage of players playing both ways. More than college ball.

    Most Surprising Teams??

    I see your point, but this is an opportunity for Austin to develop himself slowly as a HC. Papa Brett won't let him move on until he's ready for something bigger, but you're right. He's eventually going to reach for a higher rung on the ladder.
  4. Did you just screen-capture "Blue Chip"?! 😮

    Favorite Rivalry games

    Oak Hill has been probably Southwood's best and closest rival, both geographically and in competition. They first met in 1964, and after a five-year break in the late '70s, the series between these two state-championship programs is led by the Knights, 28-26. For several of those years they were conference rivals, both in the Mid-Indiana and Three Rivers -- although not since 2005 -- and only a few times when both were considered tops in their league. But being a border battle, it was always pretty heated after Southwood finally broke through in the early '70s.

    Seeded sectionals

    Yeah, I get it, guys. And I know the Man in Charge measures change with a sundial. My post is as much an "Oh, my!" for how top heavy this sectional is as it is about yet another plea for seeding. But I have been an advocate for that, and for a playoff system, in the past. I know some would say, hey, I want AC or SW in the first round, but the vast majority of fans for those ranked teams are all gonna have their collective fingers & toes crossed on the day of the draw!

    Seeded sectionals

    Assuming that rankings indicate seeding, I'm sure as a fan I'd rather see Southwood take on a rematch with Northfield rather than draw AC or 'Busco.
  8. How soon can we make that happen?!

    0-9 and 9-0

    Plus+1. Maconaquah is no joke, though, with the Colbys in charge.

    IDK what you were thinking! :-P
  11. Here in Michigan, all semifinal/semistate games are on neutral fields, presumably with FieldTurf. It should be seriously considered in Indiana, which has seen an explosion of artificial surfaces at schools who would be capable of hosting such an event. As for the scenario above, our school across the street has traveled to 3 semifinals in the last 7 years while hosting a lower-class semifinal on their FieldTurf. Doesn't seem to be a problem.
  12. Uh, it's a steer, thank you! 😱😄 Great win for coach Colby & the Kats, who are peaking at the right time. He is a class act through and through. Michigan City has been a sleeping giant up there sort of in the Region for a while now. Mason would be wise to stay with this one for once.
