  1. This made me chuckle a little. A lot of truth in your statement. And trust me, the home locker rooms were just as bad at that time. Fortunately they are no longer in use. Both locker rooms were relocated to either new or revamped buildings at the same time the field was resurfaced a few years ago. Still probably not great by some schools' standards, but functional and with proper plumbing!
  2. I just hope Coach Morris will hold a little more sway when it comes to potential upgrades to the football facilities, as Hatchet Hollow is in desperate need of some. I realize this is easier said than done, but removing the track to extend the sideline along with a resurfacing job and new grass would completely change the entire complexion of the field. VL was in a similar situation with Inman Field a few years back, although not as dire.
  3. I was just talking about the open Washington position a week ago. I hadn’t realized Jake Durnil stepped down at the time. What’s strange is some of the parents I spoke to last fall seemed to feel he had some things going in the right direction, mostly pertaining to the younger incoming classes. Yet, the on-field product and varsity numbers were not encouraging signs. Good luck to Coach Morris.
  4. We might sneak another 1 or 2 in there. Should a pretty veteran group for Lincoln in 2020. And yeah sectional 30 is what it is. Might as well take advantage while we can. I'm sure realignment will bring us back together soon!
  5. The Vincennes community and Lincoln football family recently lost a monumental figure this past week. Doug Roberts passed suddenly on Friday, February 7th at the age of 55. For me to put into words what Doug meant to his family, his friends, co-workers, and the football community would be impossible. The man was just a larger than life human being that could fill a room with his positivity and kindness. You could've met Doug just once and feel as though you'd been friends for years. Doug was active for 20 + years coaching and promoting football at all grade levels, but mostly with the youth. He was a positive influence for countless young players throughout his time (myself included), and he didn't have to be on a practice field to make an impact. Everyone knew Doug was a football guy and you could bring up the game in any conversation. He had such a way to motivate and give confidence, not just when it came to football, but with any of life’s challenges. The man genuinely cared about whatever your situation was and wanted to know how he could help. You would never know it, but Doug never actually played a down of football for Vincennes. He grew up in Pennsylvania outside of Pittsburgh, where he played in high school and collegiately. Football, though, was a way for him to transition to new surroundings in Indiana. By getting involved with the YMCA and youth programs in the early days, he forged friendships that have lasted to this day. Given time, his infectious personality made him a well known face throughout the community. If you didn’t know the man personally, you’d have thought he was born and raised here. He planted such deep roots in such a short amount of time. Today, Doug’s life will be celebrated at historic Adams' Coliseum, where so many influential people and notable teams have walked the floors for 100 years. Seems fitting that this mountain of a man be honored in such a place. RIP my friend
  6. I'm interested to see how VL and Jasper handle the overall physicality of a full SIAC slate. Not saying they can't/won't compete on a weekly basis, but the toll on the body will be a little different than that of a Big 8 schedule.
  7. Thoughts and prayers for the family and WW community.
  8. One has to wonder..I can guarantee he didn’t bow to the opposing sideline though, unless of course he was conceding defeat. Congrats to the Patriots. I’ll be gorging on left over sweet potato casserole and dumplings anticipating this showdown.
  9. Whether the penalties were warranted or not, looks like HH just needs to stick to their game plan. No reason for panic.
  10. Their young QB is good. Picked us apart last week in 2nd half.
  11. Where were all the Danville folks a week ago!? 😆 The fun could’ve started sooner! Ok..so I realize VL is not HH, but to refer to them time and again as inferior and then automatically discount Danville’s chances is unfair to both those teams. Lincoln was downright ugly on offense early in the year, I admit, with 3 returning starters from 2018. And the one guy (Haislip) they were counting on to carry them battled an ankle injury all year. Danville saw a healthy #2 running behind an young O line that had come into their own. To the Warriors credit, they adjusted and made Lincoln very uncomfortable in the 2nd half. They forced VL into passing situations against what I felt was a very good Warrior secondary. Fortunately for HH, they don’t care about your secondary unless they’re stacked in the box. I have no doubt Danville will have a good game plan for the flex bone, but it really comes down to whether you have the personnel to stop it. The HH big men are no joke. Much respect for the Warriors, but I’m taking HH by a couple scores.
  12. The best way I can describe the Warriors...a well rounded team that plays within themselves. Nothing flashy. As Dave pointed out, they own a nice +18 turnover ratio. They wait for you to make a mistake and capitalize. Their QB Payne is a sophomore and is duel threat. On film he displayed some inaccuracy but was on point last Friday. They’ve got good size at the receiver position as well as in the secondary. Defensively they did struggle stopping Lincoln on the ground at times, which would play right into hands of the Pats.
  13. Vincennes had success moving on the ground against Danville. Of course this bodes well for HH. If you get behind though, good luck throwing it. Much talent in their secondary. Congrats to HH on a regional title
