  1. South Bend isn't a destination site. I don't see a football savior on the horizion.
  2. He read the writing on the wall. SRO's are going to be out in South Bend
  3. I was teaching at Elston the last year before the consolidation and was at the high school for a few year after. I remember voting for the school colors. Navy was the choice and the students got to pic the secondary color. Teal, white and gray were the choices.
  4. Retiring after 57 years being the voice of High School Sports in the Kankakee Valley.
  5. Just because they don't get paid doesn't mean they aren't quality coaches. Case in point is the dominance of the Fort Wayne CYO against the South Bend/Mishawaka ICCL over the years.
  6. Interesting take. Is Friday Night so sacred that no one ever thinks to play varsity football on weeknights. It would seem easier to find officials that way.
  7. Then explain Fort Wayne's dominance over South Bend/Mishawaka ICCL over the years
  8. Just Curious: How many Catholic high schools are in each city. South Bend/Mishawaka currently has 2 with another school mostly Catholic and a new start that will have a high school in 2 years.
  9. According to WHME, Coach James' will be reconsidered for the Head job. There seems to be some school board members that may change their minds. Go figure
  10. Conference alignment may come down to geography in the near future. With lack of bus drivers throughout the state and the price of fuel, schools may opt for shorter drives for athletic contests. In addition, with the referee shortage, crews may not be willing to make the drive to officiate if they think they can't make money. These are facts, especially in the Southern part of Indiana.
  11. I am not as tech savvy as most on here, but there is a great youtube video by coach Frank Martin (then of South Carolina) about referees and coaches. It is worth a listen.
  12. When I first started teaching, there were some positions that were more "coach friendly". Today, that isn't the case. I have seen coaches leave because they can't do their teaching and coaching jobs to the level they want. Getting to know the kids outside the field is very important. If you only see them at practice, it's hard to develop relationships with them. There are many head coaches that can't find decent assistants to help, so he does most of the coaching solo. Not good for one's sanity.
