  1. Oh boy, here we go! As a 1A fan I love the MIC vs. The World discussions. 3,2,1....
  2. How about a contest where we all predict our teams total points over/under each week and for each point we are off we donate $1 to GID. We could call it the Put Up or Shut Up contest. If you are off by more than 25 points you are blocked from commenting for the next week.
  3. Good point Coach! It is a recent development. Interesting that it continues even when the coaching fraternity corrects misstatements and show each other respect as you all do. Thanks for commenting, I was beginning to think I was the only one who saw it. Thought maybe it was my bias as a fan showing. Oh well, we will know in a few weeks if it’s just a down year for the conference, or if our injuries kept us from our full potential, or we make a habit of running up the score, OR if you really can build a team in the middle of a cornfield. Personally I’ll take JQWL, btownqbcoach, and others assessments as accurate until proven otherwise.
  4. Week 4 Games: Charlestown at North Harrison Eastern Pekin at Silver Creek Providence at Clarksville Salem at Brownstown Scottsburg at Corydon Crawford County at Rock Creek Eastern Greene at Mitchell Paoli at Perry Central Springs Valley at West Washington
  5. Am I allowed to be excited, hopeful, under anticipation for more good news after a 30 point win? or do I have to consider it was only the Browns we beat? this team has built up my hopes soooooooooooo many times, I just don't know whether to trust them or not.
  6. I have seen on several threads a reference to a rule interpretation or clarification was basically being handed down by word of mouth. IHSAA to chair(?) to local official to chain gang to ballboy to game official. And nearly every time an official responds with “no one told me”. Doesn’t seem professional on the part of IHSAA. A systemic problem. That’s just from the outside looking in. Doesn’t the IHSAA have a data base of all authorized officials? Seems like it would be better to go directly from IHSAA to the official on the field. In order to have uniformity of rule application. Am I missing something?
  7. I was surprised by how much we moved up in the Sagarin ratings off this one win. From low 20’s to 7th in our class. Must be because it’s so early on the season.
  8. Just SMH. Arrogance or ignorance not sure which one.
  9. My exact thought as well. You beat me to it. 😂😂😂
  10. If there is one thing I have learned in my time of following GID and then joining the forum it is this: it is incredibly shortsighted of me, having never played football, coached football, or officiated football to sit in the stands or stand on the sideline during the game and believe that my opinion or perspective of any particular play is the correct and absolute opinion or perspective. As to officiating I would ask how do you expect another human being to make 100’s if not 1000’s of split second decisions during the course of a game and get every one of them right. If we take the low number of 100 and say they miss 5 calls during a game. That is still a 95% success rate. I doubt any of us can claim that success rate on our daily tasks, yet we expect it of semi-volunteer people just like us every week. I hope we never put the underpaid individuals, that offer their time and physical strength to make this game as fair as it is, on a podium so we can question every call that we didn’t like. That would be the ultimate insult a real slap in the face. Players play, Coaches coach, Officials officiate, and Fans cheer. I’m a fan!
  11. It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. commonly attributed to Abraham Lincoln
  12. I’ll ask, what good does ANY camera do, If you don’t know what to do with the information the camera captured? If you don’t know how to block and tackle, or how to teach someone to block and tackle. Then it is useless to have film proving we need to block and tackle better Just sayin...
  13. He may be attempting to set a new record for negative rating. Down vote magnet!
  14. I always thought the Catholics fought each other in the backyard and stood shoulder to shoulder in the front yard. 😊 Guess somebody forgot the memo. 🙄 This is UGLY! 💩
  15. To paraphrase an old manager of mine, The guy with the striped shirt and whistle may not always be correct, but he does have the striped shirt and whistle and that makes him right! 😂😂😂 Don’t know how you guys do it and keep a sense of humor, but we appreciate you doing it.
  16. As a fan that occasionally gets insight into the goings on of IHSAA thru this forum, it is obvious that “IHSAA” and “makes sense” do not belong in the same sentence. 😂😂
  17. So which game was the toughest to pick this week? For me it was the Salem/Silver Creek or Valley/Mitchell. Just think they are very close in talent. I finally went with the home team both games. @JQWL you messed some people up when you recused yourself from the game involving your team! 😂😂
  18. I've heard the rumors as well, still think Salem has the depth to weather the storm and beat the Creek. Standing firm with my choices.
  19. Not going to repeat rumors and that’s all I’ve heard to this point. I’m sure Coach can and will release info when it is prudent.
  20. Wow! Clubhouse leaders at 70%. Not sure if I should be happy or be looking over my shoulder. One week does not a season make! My best impression of coachspeak “We were just fortunate to have the ball bounce our way from time to time last week. Got a lot of things we need to address this coming week. We’ll get back to the basics and hit it hard Friday night. Just feel real good to be in the position we are. Can’t take our foot off the gas. Go Senators!”
  21. Coach you are right! Sorry, misinterpreted your concern with the rule. This issue does need correcting. Don’t want any trouble with the “Mayor”. 😂
