  1. Tomlin punted on 4th and 1 down two scores with 8 min left and one TO and only saw the ball once after. Steelers didn’t win. Shameful.
  2. Didn’t see it so can’t really comment on it, but saw they blew a 22 point lead and then later a 13 point lead with less than 2 minutes to go. Credit Warren for never bowing out but that question kind of answers itself. They’ll likely outscore LN next week before losing to Carmel, then win big against two bad teams in LC and North Central to get above .500 for the first time this year, but I just don’t see any progression out of the Giants.
  3. Is there serious progress? He has a losing record through 4.5 seasons. Is 2-3 this year with a team yielding almost 40 ppg and just inexcusably blew multiple double digits in a single game against an arch-rival that he’s 1-3 against. Highlight of the year is playing Center Grove close for a half. The two teams he’s beaten are a combined 0-10. Is that acceptable at Ben Davis?
  4. At what point do we come out and say Simmons is in over his head? I’ve reluctantly given him the benefit of the doubt the last few years, but there seems to be no progress being made over on the West Side. Pretty inexcusable to lose that game in that fashion.
  5. 37-13 final. Bulldogs made it interesting there for a minute. Irish we’re up 17-0 early in the 2nd with blowout written all over it before CN recorded their first 1st down which also resulted in a TD on a 4th and long pass. From there, and stop me if you’ve heard this before, Cathedral sputtered multiple redzone opportunities due to lack of execution and penalties. Need to credit CN for hanging tough and making it a 4 quarter game. Most people, including myself, believed this would be a walkover and it certainly wasn’t after it appeared that way through the 1st quarter.
  6. It should be a penalty if you punt inside your opponents 40 yards line. I see it happen every Sunday.
  7. To be fair, it was a Roncalli fan who started the post. Cathedral may not have their own home field on campus, but they ought to rename Roncalli's stadium "Cathedral South" as the Irish haven't lost there since 05.
  8. Nobody is going to be sitting any players in this game as has been the case the last 6-7 (or however many) meetings that have all been classics aside from the one CG blowout. This is a huge game for both teams and for the second year in a row will be the marquee game in Indiana by a large magnitude. Agree with everything else though, playing surface won't have an effect on the game as both teams are playing on the same surface and the field is well-kept anyway. Should be another classic.
  9. I think Tech has one of the best atmospheres in the city. Very, very cool stadium on a very nice campus that has an extremely old school feel. Playing surface is fine and there is more than adequate seating on both sides. As a fan, not to concerned with the locker rooms or press box, just there to watch football and Tech is a great place to do it.
  10. They have a field that they pay to service and maintain professionally. It's located at Arlington, hence why the game is being played there. Try again.
  11. I agree, Tech has a phenomenal facility. Not sure it is an option to Cathedral anymore. Just thought it was ironic for a Roncalli fan of all people to chime in. Roncalli dropped Cathedral after a few drubbings awhile back and now wants to dictate where Cathedral hosts a game?
  12. Just be glad Roncalli has ducked Cathedral for the last decade and get over it. The playing surface at Arlington is fine. It is a smaller venue but what other choice does Cathedral have? It's where they play their home games.
  13. Played La Salle last year and in 07 at the Herbstreit Classic. Won both. Edit: I see you said at LaSalle my apologies. 07 game was in Cincy but played at UC's Nipper Stadium.
  14. No chance I’m letting my kicker attempt a game winning on the road in front of 100k fans at the expense of not scoring a TD to take the lead while trailing. Hindsight is 20/20 but you just don’t do that.
  15. I think they're very well-coached and have some serious individual talent. IU is going to have to play extremely well to win this game.
  16. Cathedral “could” have beaten Penn by a lot more than 37-0 had they wanted too, however they chose not to. I think a similar outcome will be in the works Friday against CN. Not sure why St. X isn’t on the schedule this year, they’ve been a mainstay on Cathedral’s schedule for the better part of the last 20 years but there have been a few instances where they haven’t met. I believe they are back on the schedule next year. Moeller, Elder, as well as Louisville Trinity and Lakewood St. Ed’s have shown up on the schedule a few different times over the years but not teams Cathedral traditionally plays every year. It is unfortunate when a team like Morton shows up on the schedule but in almost every instance it is out of necessity not luxury. One of the downsides to not being in a conference I suppose.
  17. I’ve heard Urban coveted that job on his most recent “retirement” but the school chancellor wanted nothing to do with Urban so long as she was there given the issues he had at Florida and Ohio State. Luke Fickell and Matt Campbell I would think are obvious choices. Both can flat out coach football. Feel like James Franklin’s name has been mentioned the last 2-3 years as well. Honestly wouldn’t be surprised to see them make a run at Kiffin again. I know it sounds crazy but Kiffin is a ton more mature now than he was in his mid-30’s when he took that job the first go around, not to mention in less than desirable circumstances given the fallout from Reggie Bush.
  18. Feels like this should have been done 2-3 years ago but here we are. Outside Bama, I think this is the best job in the country. Beautiful location, fertile recruiting grounds, storied history, etc…for the life of me I can’t understand why this is so hard for them to get right. Job should attract plenty of suitors, interesting to see how committed the USC administration really is, I’ve heard they’ve been penny pinching for sometime.
  19. It'll be similar to the Penn game. 35-0, 42-0 at half, running clock 2nd half with backups running the same two or three plays every series with the score being similar to what it was at half. Only way it gets significantly out of hand is if the Cathedral defense is scoring directly off turnovers.
  20. The only way I'll start worrying about preseason polls is if they College Football Playoff (the only poll that matters) is directly influenced by either the AP or Coaches poll. I haven't seen that to be the case yet. Preseason polls are fun and meant to hype up early season match ups, all while being meaningless at the same time.
  21. That was IU's MO all of last year. Very stout and fortuitous defense that turned their opponents over at an extremely high rate that just simply isn't attainable over the long haul. IU's defense is good enough to keep them in most games this year, but they aren't going to win many if they turn the ball over and can't sustain drives.
  22. Saw what Iowa did, still not overly impressed with the Hawkeyes. If they are a top 5 team, college football is considerably down. Iowa has 476 yards of offense through 2 games and their QB is completing 50% of his passes. They are a well-disciplined and coached team and they have a very stout defense that will be good all year, but they've been just as fortuitous as they've been good. I have them with 3 INT's off tipped balls where defenders simply were in the right spot at the right time and 3 defensive TD's. That is simply an unattainable rate and will surely regress towards the mean as the season progresses. Iowa's offense at some point this year is going to have to win them a game, maybe a few, and their offense has been very average.
