    After this year, we drop Warren Central and pick up Warsaw to go along with East Noble. Joy. 

    Or did Warren drop Snider? At the end of the day, Snider needs an Indy team on their schedule to have a chance at 6A. That's the cold hard truth whether anyone wants to believe it or deny it. When it's all said and done with, they'll go 4-0 against East Noble. Maybe at that point they can pick up an Indy team. This program is on solid ground and their doesn't seem to be any sign of slowing down. Go big or go home, or it'll be exclusively 5A titles after this season.

    1.  Northrop has beaten Snider once that I can remember in the last 35 years, I completely do not consider them a rival.

    2.  North Side can be judged a rival in proximity only as games with them have been lopsided for years.

    3.  Luers over the years as been more competitive with Snider than North Side and Northrop. 

    4.  Dwenger is on the downside of what has been a great football school for years. I still had them as Snider’s top rival 5 years ago, but the downward turn has been steep recently. 

    5.  I would love to see Snider playing good teams every week, but the current teams in the SAC doesn’t allow for that.

    1.  Northrop hasn't beaten Snider since 1999. That's how serious Snider takes the Northrop game. I'm not sure if that's enough to dub the game as a rivalry since it's been so lopsided. But if it's not a rivalry, why does Snider take the game so serious?

    2.  Not only is North Side close in proximity, they have a hatred for Snider. Snider is the game they circle every year. The Panthers have to put their best foot forward, or they'll stumble. See 2011, 2013, and 2020. They darn near did it again in 2022. I've gotta say it.......rivalry. 

    3.  Luers has beaten Snider four times in thirty seven tries. They are a quarter of Snider's enrollment and is miles away on the other side of town. I'm struggling with "rivalry" here. 

    4.  Dwenger is still Dwenger and beat Snider in 2021. And 2020, 2019, and 2015. Rivalry. The Saints last two seasons have been unsettling, but I'm not ready to leave them for dead just yet. Make or break year for Jason Garrett. 

    5.  I'm actually ok with the occasional "bye" week. It's an opportunity to rest players and give the backups much needed reps including future starters. What Snider needs is a strong game in Week 8 or 9 so that they don't enter the playoffs soft. 

    At the end of the day, Snider's going to be involved in "the game of the year" most years, probably 90% of them. They are the benchmark of the SAC and have a target on their back every time they take the field. Snider easily has more rivalries than any other team in the SAC. This was a good topic.

    Wanted to get thoughts on who you see as the Panthers biggest rival today as compared to 5 years ago. Here are my thoughts:

    2019                      2024

    1. Dwenger            1. Carroll

    2. Homestead       2. Homestead

    3. North Side        3. Dwenger

    4. Carroll               4. Luers

    5. Luers                 5. North Side




    That's a tough question. The school district sitting adjacent to Northrop and North Side still make them rivalries in my opinion. However, Homestead and Carroll have been the more competitive games. Dwenger will always up there at the top since the kids from both schools share the same neighborhoods and churches. I feel like Dwenger, Northrop, North Side, and now Carroll and Homestead are all a toss up. I have Luers at #6.

    I’d argue the “vote blue no matter who” cult is worse as certain demographics of folks continue to simply pull the democrat lever every 4 years despite being used as pawns and empty promises that are never fulfilled being pushed in the campaign.

    That's a good one. In my opinion, the Dem's know they have a naive base of voters. They exploit that to a very disturbing degree.

    Why yes. Mobs are always right.

    I take it you an advocate for the elimination of the Electoral College?



    No, I believe in the Electoral College. The popular vote doesn't make any sense to me.

    Then he is calling out himself.   And his inability to "drain the swamp" just goes to show that Trump has just become yet another big government apparatchik.



    Trump didn't make a living out of being a politician. He's not part of the swamp. This isn't debatable.

    Trump is also guilty of cultural appropriation. He stole the Billy Jack salute! 😂

    Former President Donald Trump is rushed offstage during a rally in Butler, Pa.


    If you think I have anything but contempt for Biden and his ilk, you’re dead wrong. They are both ass hats in different ways. The only similarity between them is that they are both bad Presidents and bad for the country.

     A record 78 million legitimate voters disagree.

    Yea, strange that this game is pretty much an afterthought. I always look at as the beginning of the new season with some of last years top players.

    Many of the top players don't play in it to my understanding? I've never cared for All-Star games, they are a crapshoot. No conclusions can be drawn.

    But no one can deny that his rhetoric is polarizing. 

    Your views are clearly one sided. Not sure how you can say that Trumps rhetoric is polarizing without saying the same thing about ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN. He's got his back against the wall. It's Trump versus all media outlets but two. He'll do what he needs to do to defend himself, get his message out there, and call out the political elites (the swamp). You'd do the same. Left wing media is destroying America with Trump rhetoric, and especially racism rhetoric. Left wing racism saddens me.

    Wait until the bodies cool and they have the nerve to switch the argument back to guns.

    I am already hearing that the gunman was “a registered Republican.”

    The MSM has created this and will not stop now.

    A wise man once told me, "only believe 1/3 of what you hear."

    The left wing media and their anti-Trump “Hitler” rhetoric caused this and they have blood on their hands.

    They have advocated for this for years with their hyperbolic embellishment.

    No other explanation.

    Still confused about who the bad guys are?

    Not confused at all. One political party has changed over the years far more than the other. We all saw the writing on the wall with what happened yesterday. There is no other path to victory for the Dems. Sick world we are living in. We the people, lol.

    I think we all knew it was a matter of time. The political elites in this country do NOT want this man to be our president. Average everyday Americans should be asking why this is. Why do the political elites hate this man so much? Because he's not a member of the political good 'ol boy club? I'm not blaming anyone at this point, but the timing came when Biden hit an all time low after the debate and several attempts to put Trump in jail. I don't see any of this as coincidence.

    Possibly. That being said Snider was having a tough time stopping RB Darren Evans (166 yds 1 TD) and QB Dexter Taylor (104 yds 3 TD's). WC only threw 3 passes the entire game (one was a 99 yd TD). Snider still was productive without Lewis, LCJ Martin (123 yds 0 TD) and QB Hayden (107 yds 1 TD threw for 74 and 2 TD's).

    Nobody knows what would have happened, Snider played well in that game offensively without Lewis though.

    LCJ Martin was good, no one can deny that. But Lewis was a beast. He was scoring a touchdown once every four times he touched the ball before he broke his ankle in Week 9. The 99 yard pass was actually well defended. The Snider kid fell down as he was going up to defend the pass. That was one breaking point for Snider, there were two more. Snider blew up a WC play in the backfield when the DE tried picking up a fumble and taking it to the house. Instead he bobbled it and Evans picked up out of the air and took it in. Very much a fluke play. The other was Snider fumbling a punt at the 50 yard line down 21-14. They would have had great field position to tie the game. Those three plays were game breakers. Two evenly matched teams even without Lewis.

    Who F.W. Snider with 219? I only kid I know that Snider just moved up to 6A.

    What amazes me is that Carmel is only 2 games behind CG. Just seems like there have been many wins by CG would have been more separation.

    I maintain that with a healthy Quale Lewis, the 2004 team would be on that list. Or not. It's hard to come up with a list based entirely on Sagarin.

    From what I know they will be better, however the O-Line it small. They picked up a few transfers from Carroll. I have noticed a trend with Carrol players who won't start at Carroll switching. 

    Not a good look for Dwenger if they are getting Carroll's second stringers. Is Carroll part of Dwenger's downfall? With such a great program right up the street, are parents sending their players to that new powerhouse program with great facilities and saving money in the process?

    Well one thing we do know. If we were to go to Ben Davis football field and throw #24 Steve Holman (91 BD Running Back) and #21 Alijah Price (current BD Running Back) on the field in pads I know who I would put my money on.

    I know what your thinking, Price. Well to @temptation chagrin I am taking Holman because I am relying on the crafty ole' veteran to use a foot to trip Price! All kidding aside you are 100% spot on  BTF.

    Still haven't seen anyone as good as Vaughn Dunbar, and that was 1986. Those 80's and 90's boys can hang with the current "athletes." I have no doubt.

    After seeing them sucker punch the panthers last year I wouldn't look over them..their qb returns and have size up front..

    Zolman has been around long enough to know what it takes to beat Snider and Carroll. His struggle has been with the opponents he doesn't see so much. Homestead will have their uptick. I don't ever count them out. They've won four of the last six against Snider. Last year Homestead beats Snider after the panthers manhandled Warren Central. Then turn around and get manhandled by Noblesville. The Spartans are a headscratcher for sure.

    Good stuff but an absolute slap in the face to Ben Davis.

    Agree. I appreciate the numbers that are provided for us. It's all for fun anyway. It's hard to tell who really could beat who from one year to the next. All we really know are that some teams from Warren and Ben Davis are at the top.
