  1. Michigan City have totally dominated the Lake county schools lately. Last two seasons the Wolves have gone 9-0 against the Lake County schools and that will bump up to 10-0 after the Wolves dispatch of Munster next Friday night. After Friday night Phil Mason will be 13-1 against the Lake County schools in three seasons at Michigan City.
  2. Valpo (5-2), Andrean (6-1) and Lowell (6-1) here in the region. Valpo essentially went through 4 head coaching changes in less than a year and is in all likelihood going to run the table on the Duneland Conference. The Vikings are looking to win their first sectional game since 2010. Played Penn really close in the opener. Lowell is at 6-1 and there only loss was 7-3 to 6A Portage in week 2. This is after losing most of their key players of the state finals run last year and their quarterback being out since week 1. Andrean is at 6-1 with their only loss being to 6A Merrillville 21-14 in the week 1 battle for Broadway game. 59ers went thought a major coaching change a year ago and has had some internal issues to deal with but the football program seems to be back on track.
  3. Welcome to Homecoming week! This series has become one of the marquee match ups in the state. The 2016 Homecoming game was a sellout before the gates were even opened. Not a single ticket was left for sale by the time the gates opened for the 2016 edition of Michigan City versus LaPorte. With the historic season Michigan City has had, plus their biggest rival coming to Ames Field this Friday we fully expect that this game will be a sellout again. Due to this expected demand, we are recommending that everyone who wants to go to this game to buy their ticket EARLY through the Michigan City High School Athletic office. These tickets will be $6 and will be available (as long as they last) at the Michigan City High School Athletic Office during normal school hours. Drive to the back entrance of the Wolf Pack gym, and hit the intercom button to be let in by the Athletic office. Tell them you are there for a ticket to the football game. Again, we HIGHLY recommend all Wolves fan pick up a their tickets early this week. Finally please share this post on your friend lists with all of the other Wolves fans you know. As people learned two years ago, once the capacity of Ames Field has been met in advanced ticket sales, there will be no more tickets available. GET YOUR TICKETS EARLY! And as always GO WOLVES!!!
  4. I have not heard not heard anything about Penn or Elkhart wanting to join or being invited to join the Duneland Conference since 2002. Penn and Mishawaka submitted proposals to join but backed out because they wanted Elkhart Central and East Chicago to join as well. There will never be any double header event take place at Ames Field or any where else.
  5. Michigan City is going to spoil Portage's Homecoming on Friday night. It will be 4 in a row for the Wolves over the Indians and none of the Michigan City schools (Elston, Rogers or MCHS) has ever won back to back away games at Portage.
  6. MC has two remaining away games on the DAC schedule. Friday @ Merrillville and @ Portage in week 7. None of the Michigan City schools (Elston, Rogers and MCHS) has never won back to back away game at Merrillville and Portage. The win over Chesterton was the first time Michigan City won back to back away games against the Trojans since Rogers in 1976 and 1978, 40 years ago. The kids at Michigan City always tell me that they want to do things for the school and community that has never been done before.
  7. At age 68, Time has come to pass for Bucs AD Janis Qualizza to retire.
  8. Region football has always been cyclical. Andrean, Whiting, La Porte, Lowell and to some extent New Prairie and Renselaer all have made recent appearances in the state football finals. Michigan City just fell a touchdown shy of making it last season and it looks like they are going to make another deep run. I like what the guy said about not having any contraction issues when it comes to playing fortnite.
  9. Jim Peters writes for the Michigan City News Dispatch now. Just about the entire sports writing staff and The Times has moved on except for Al Hamnik who had the recap of the David VS. Goliath tilt.

    New IHSAA officiating PSA

    I really like this new IHSAA officiating PSA. Hit the nail right on the head. highschoolrefs.com
  11. Did you officiate that game in 1903?
  12. One thing that Crown Point has proved to me is that there is no direct correlation between community growth and success of the high school football program. Over the last 20 years people kept telling me that Crown Point is growing leaps and bounds and this will lead to the Bulldogs challenging the big boy down in Indy for state championships.

    5A North collision course

    That walk off TD in the H-F-MC game was one that Buzea always ran that same play during his years at Portage. He also used that same play to beat Valpo in the final seconds in 2009 when he was at Michigan City. He had the ball a the 6 but took a DOG to give the QB more space to execute the play.
  14. Look what the H-F human resources director rakes in (the person listed above Buzea), she also gets 20 vacation days and 15 sick days in addition to the summer off.
  15. Given the opportunity I would jump at it. Here is the 2017 administration and teacher salary report for Homewood-Flossmoor High School: https://www.hfhighschool.org/assets/1/24/2017_EIS_Admin_and_Teacher_Salary_Benefit_Report.pdf
