  1. Agree. I would be surprised if it goes beyond the Power 5 for that very reason.
  2. After further review, Notre Dame would still have Navy on the schedule and possibly Western Michigan. That would put them at 8 games.
  3. Does Notre Dame go to the playoffs with a 6-0 record if they run the table against Wake Forest, Pittsburgh, Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville, and Clemson?
  4. After two mediocre years, one would think the Kingsmen are due to bounce back. Good luck to them.
  5. They're still Snider regardless of what anyone says. Sure they lost to Homestead last year. But they were 15-1 against them over the past two decades. Sure they've gone 2-2 against Carroll the past two seasons. I still remember recently in 2017 when Snider beat them 69-7 in a game that would have mercy ruled Carroll in the first half had that rule been in place. I'm not taking anything away from Homestead and Carroll, but lets stop this nonsense that Snider has fallen on hard times. Do people really think that much has changed at Snider since 2015 and 2017 when they were Top 5 programs regardless of class?
  6. All that makes too much sense. In the meantime we will just continue to make fun of the IHSAA and why they do things so backward. A 9-0 team goes on the road to play an 0-9 team in the first round. Or even better, two 9-0 teams square off in one game and two 0-9 teams square off in the other. An 0-9 team earns the right to play another week while a 9-0 team cleans out their lockers. Everyone except the IHSAA knows this is stupid, but I'm sure we'll get some politically correct responses.
  7. I can understand why NW Indiana is on CST. It's basically a burb of Chicago. It only makes sense to be on the same time zone.
  8. I think we have to move forward. We are already trillions in dept as a country. Another shutdown will make recovery impossible no matter who is in charge after November. I still think we let the parents, coaches, kids, and fans decide. We all know the risks. No one will force a kid to play. No one will force a coach to coach. No one will force a fan to attend. I saw this coming. Football is the money sport for most schools at the high school and college level. Not having a season will be absolutely devastating financially. Start the season and go from there. If it get's out of hand the season can always be cancelled. I promise you and every reader on this forum.................if this country shuts down again, the next recession will make 2008 look like a joke. According to some financial experts, our economy is already a bubble waiting to pop. Covid could be the needle that does it. I sincerely understand your concern. People going to die from Covid, just like they do from the flu. The only difference is that instead of 1 death, there will be 3. That's a big number, I get that. But is it worth total financial devastation? That's the question we have to ask ourselves. It's kind of like voting for the President. Fifty percent will go one way and fifty percent will go the other. So which is right? I reside on the side of re-opening our economy...........including sports.
  9. I guess that would up to the grandparents. I wouldn't recommend it. That age bracket has another set of rules. If I'm over 65, I'm probably watching the game on TV.
  10. Young men playing high school football are in an age group that represents less than 1/2 of 1% of Covid-19 related deaths. In other words, of the next 200 people in Indiana who die from the virus, only one will be in the age range of a high school football player. It's basically twice as deadly as the flu. Are we going to allow a total economic collapse by shutting everything down again? It's time to get back to normal. Let the kids and parents decide and sign a waiver.
  11. I didn't know Carmel had a good following for football. It seems like whenever Snider played at Carmel, the Snider side was just as packed as the Carmel side. Granted, that was 15 years ago when fans still traveled. Homestead, Carroll, or Warsaw making the state finals would be a big deal for those communities. They would travel well I'm sure.
  12. His email is on his website. Maybe just email him directly.
  13. Sagarin seems to be the way to go. Although somewhat comical weeks 1-9, it does seem to have a pretty good grip on things entering the regional/semi-state level.
  14. Maybe you are basing that on Snider going 2-3 against Dwenger, Homestead, and Carroll last year? Don't forget, they won the state championship in 2015 and was one of the top 3 or 4 teams in the entire state. Snider was also one of the ten best teams in the state in 2017. Let's not pull the plug on them yet, lol.
