  1. Like I said, I generally get along with all but 2 or 3 people on this site. Don’t sweat it. Just be better. You owe too much money for all the space I occupy in your head and I don’t want to jeopardize that. Sleep well.
  2. I generally respect all but 2-3 posters on this site. Your comment yesterday was out of line, opinionated or not.
  3. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. And I'm entitled to call out a misogynic opinion when I see one. If you don't like it you can leave.
  4. So just a wildly unfound opinion then? More schools might contract their football teams because a woman is in charge and they don't understand/care for football? How ignorant is that?
  5. What non-1A fledgling schools have contracted their football programs in the last 5 years?
  6. Evidence of this? How many schools in the last 5 years have relegated to a JV schedule or completely contracted their football programs? If anything I see more and more schools offering football than ones voluntarily choosing to shut it down.
  7. Cathedral is a private school that offers a Catholic-based education. It is true that Cathedral isn't as homogenous as the Diocesan schools and that is because Cathedral doesn't have any direct feeders as it not part of the Diocese. I'd still say Cathedral is 70-75% catholic but does tend to take a lot more kids from public schools as it really has to to keep it's doors open. Brebeuf and Cathedral both probably fall around the same split for Catholic/Non-Catholic, if anything Brebeuf has less % of Catholics, as well as SES. A lot of kids from Carmel and the affluent parts of Indy (Williams Creek/Meridian-Kessler) attend Brebeuf as it's just down the road.
  8. I'm not sure there is one specific reason as to why. I'd say looking at CYO over the last 10-15 years however is probably the biggest indicator. The northside deanery schools that feed into Cathedral, Chatard, and to an extent Brebeuf on average are usually significantly better than the average southside deanery schools that feed into Roncalli. Roncalli for the longest time ran an archaic offense under Coach Scifries that wasn't conducive to modern football that could have potentially been a turn off to prospective skill-position player. I can't tell you the last time Roncalli produced a D1 player at QB, RB, or WR.
  9. Roncalli having one blue chip recruit in the last 15 years doesn't equate to anything.
  10. Cathedral is 28-2 the last two years with two 5A state titles. The numbers say it all.
  11. And I'm still guessing Cathedral would have beaten Roncalli by 3+ scores any of the last two years and by more this coming year had they played. Roncalli isn't on the same stratosphere in overall talent as Cathedral.
  12. What on Earth does that have to do with anything? Every single private school in Metro Indy has the ability to draw from the same 2 million people and theoretically so does every public school in Metro Indy with open enrollment. Cathedral is playing in 6A the next two years because they accumulated the necessary SF points to bump up now a second class. Please alert me when the IHSAA starts classifying schools by the desirability of one of its members athletic programs. Your comment last night about drawing from 2 million as a reason why Cathedral belongs in 6A can literally be applied to every other private school in the state, none of which I’ve seen you advocate for playing in 6A.
