  1. I actually made it to the final round of interviews when they hired Coach Funk. I sat in the conference room with the school board, A.D., and Principal. One of the board members asked my why I was such a "Bittergymteacher" and I told him a story about how my high school never had a swimming pool and it kept me from being a national champion swimmer (that and I suck at swimming). I knew their lack of pool facilities would cost me the job!!! In all seriousness, I did make it to the final round that year and it was the most pleasant interviewing process I had been through. I hated not getting hired but they definitely made a great choice in picking Funk that year. Ole Miss will do it right again and take their time for a quality head coach.
  2. NO WAY Chuck Pagano takes the Roncalli job with Anderson Prep is still currently being open. He is holding out for that one first.
  3. Rumor has it that this post will be shut down by noon.
  4. I have learned my lesson with Ole Miss. I am not counting them out. I say they win by 7. I thought Eastern was better than what they are. A last second win against Lapel and a close game against Alex. I don't see any way this game is close Friday. Eastbrook by at least 21. MG got a lucky draw to get here but that's okay! Unfortunately this one will be over by the 2nd quarter.
  5. Don't join the bitter side! It could always be worse, you could be an A.P.A.nite!!!!!
  6. This could be the best comment of the day!
  7. I'm not saying it is likely that Mississinewa will make it to state but honestly I don't see anyone in 4A that can't be beat on a great night. It would take near perfection to get passed East Noble or East Central but its not like In 3A where Chatard realistically can't be beat in the tournament. Just my opinion. (which if you look at all my wrong picks this year really doesn't mean much!!!)
  8. I agree. That was a very impressive win. Delta had a great team this year. Congrats to Ole Miss for getting the job done! High School kids stepping up in big game situations only happens with a great coaching staffs the kids believe in.
  9. Oak Hill vs Peru: Oak Hill is on a good roll right now. With home field advantage they win this one by 10. Delta vs Mississinewa = I really want to pick Ole Miss on this one but I think the strength of schedule is going to really play an effect. I am sadly picking Delta by 14 Tipton vs Frankton = NO words for Frankton getting beat 27-0 by Madison Grant week 9. Tipton wins this by 35. Eastbrook @ Blackford = Eastbrook remembers how close this was first half and unleashes this week. Eastbrook by 35 over Blackford. Alexandria @ Elwood = Even Alex can't screw this up. Alex by 450. Madison Grant @ Taylor = Great draw for Madison Grant. They go into this confident after pounding the Eagle and win by 21.
  10. CIC Round 1. Who is making in to next week? By the Saragin numbers: Delta @ Mississinewa = Delta favored by 10 Peru @ Oak Hill = Oak Hill favored by 4.5 Tipton @ Frankton = Tipton favored by 30 Eastbrook @ Blackford = Eastbrook favored by 22 Alexandria @ Elwood = Alexandria favored by 36.5 Madison Grant @ Taylor = Madison Grant favored by 29.5 Who are you taking?
  11. I was at a game Friday night and I am curious if the officials got this one right... Team 1 gets flagged for targeting during the play. Team 2 jumps up, says something and gets an unsportsmanlike conduct after the play and then Team 1 then gets flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct immediately after for saying something back. How do you mark of these 3 flags?
  12. Enough of this round ball talk. You want to impress me with winter sports talk, tell me Ole Miss has more than 2 wrestlers that can tie their own shoes! I will see PH in person tonight. Maybe they are better than I think but I am guessing Delta simply looked past them and didnt play well. The Delta/New Pal game will be a good one to watch. Although New Pal will still pound them.
  13. Man I have a great answer for this one but I had to delete it because you just cant post those kind of jokes anymore!!!! It was a good one though! I could beat him one on one easily. He's not even that good. Just a product of a move into an easy schedule so Grandpa can relive his dream of coaching and make the Bruins fell all warm and fuzzy inside. 100% joking of course. He might not be a big time D1 player but he will play for a D1 somewhere. Believe or not I have gained a lot more respect for Mississinewa since their back to back strong sectional performance. A few years ago I would have said they were a joke that just beats up on 2A schools. However, even with my new found respect I don't think they can hang with Delta. The Pendleton Heights win was good but I am not sold on PH. I have seen Delta play and they are big upfront and athletic at every position. I'm not going to say there is no way Ole Miss can win but it's going to have to be the best game they have played all year and Delta is going to have to cough up the ball at least once to help them.
  14. Interesting. Funk is 72-35 with a Sectional Championship in 2017 and running up in 2018. Prior to him taking over I believe Ole Miss was really struggling to hold on. Why do you think he is holding them back? Seems like he was doing pretty well there and could get something bigger and better if he wanted to. Alex on the other hand, I agree with.
  15. Now that the kind of juicy stuff I'm talking about. Unfortunately the word "Rumor' is banned on the GID and could get us shut down.
  16. WHERE IS EVERYONE???? There used to be some great battles and hurt feelings on the CIC threads. Now its as boring as a 6th grade girls basketball game!!!! I even tried to poke a little at the Tigers and got nothing. Halfbackpass, flying.I.know.nothing.but.say.everything.socks, C.J.B, Riverrats.......Anybody out there?
  17. According the the Prediction Tool: Eastbrook is favored by 23 Madison Grant is favored by 24 Mississinewa is favored by 33 Oak Hill is favored by 22 My Prediction: ( Its going to be rainy. Who can handle it and whose balls hit the ground?) Eastbrook starts looking to the future and plays a sloppy game against the Bruins. However they still pull out a win with a score of 28-14. Madison Grant wins the toilet bowl championship by a score or 54-21. Mississinewa puts it to the Tigers. I know the Tigers always think they have something special. Sorry fellas, the Tigers are privileged to play against some awful football teams which makes the Tigers record look better than they are. Still no match for Eastbrook and Mississinewa. UPSET PICK: Frankton is going to come out inspired to conquer the world tomorrow night. Its going to be a rainy night and their ground and pound offense will carry them to a 7 point victory. 14-7.
  18. Is the CIC so boring these days that no one has started the week 8 talk yet? It's Thursday already! Eastbrook at Blackford ©, 7 pm Elwood at Madison-Grant ©, 7 pm Mississinewa at Alexandria ©, 7 pm Oak Hill at Frankton ©, 7 pm
  19. So you are saying it is not due to lack of hot moms?
  20. Although in an ideal situation this would be nice but I don't ever see this happening. The question is, if these small schools are using the same athletes to win basketball, baseball, and other sports why can they not compete in football? I know that's a loaded question but just something to get a Friday conversation going. Is it lack of tradition, toughness, football knowledge, kids specializing in sports, parents attitude towards football, poor feeder systems, lack of HOT MOMS? Thoughts?
  21. Not a single close game once again this week. What is it going to take to make this conference competitive???? I didn't spend a whole lot of time looking but at first glance only 3 conference games have been won by less than 20 points. 13 out of 16 times this year one CIC teams has beaten the other by 20 or more points. These bottom feeders need to step it! Eastbrook Ole Miss Blackford Oak Hill All winning by 3 or more touchdowns.
  22. Blackford @ MG Eastbrook @ Frankton Elwood @ Alex Ole Miss @ OH Let's be honest, none of these games will be close. I think Oak Hill will show the most fight because they have a coaching staff that sets that expectation. My question is how many of the other 3 will go down swinging and how many of them will have "Pride" injuries hanging out on the sideline eating Dippin Dots? Come on Under Dogs let's see some hay makers!!!! Let's see if the CIC can avoid the Mercy Rule in all 4 games. Even this Bitter Ole Gym Teacher has hope. AHHHHH Screw it, NO I DON'T!
  23. Alexandria at Blackford-- This should be a good match up. I am going to with Blackford by 7. Injuries could determine this game. Frankton at Elwood-- This is huge! Eastbrook fans will be watching this match closely. The winner of this game has the potential to upset Eastbrook and take away their chance at an outright CIC title............. just kidding Eastbrook beats both of these teams by 50! Thanks goodness for the mercy rule!!! Anyway, If Elwood can take an early lead, they have a chance to take this one. I don't see that happening though. Frankton wins by 14. Madison-Grant at Missisinewa-- This won't even be close. Mississinewa by 35. Oak Hill at Eastbrook-- This won't be close either. Eastbrook by 36.
  24. Not so fast Captainobvious! Eastbrook still has to get through Frankton and Elwood. Let's not go crowning them CIC champs just yet!!!!
