  1. On another note, Kevin Warren should be forced to make a public statement on how he continues to justify the imbalance of divisions. You could make a rational argument that the 6 best teams in the B10 are in the East, and that doesn’t include Indiana who already beat Illinois.

    Temp’s hot take…mark the tape…a MAX of 2 more wins for the Hoosiers in 2022.

    Not really a hot take.

    Tom Allen is a likable guy and it’s hard not to root for him, but he’s not a P5 head coach.

    But he won the social media recruiting summer national championship

    It’s why I laugh when guys like @BTFsay there are 20-30 guys who could do Day’s job better than him. Recruiting is one thing, and honestly it’s half the battle. But you have to be able able to coach. See Jimbo Fisher.

    Freeman’s young and I’m sure he’ll eventually figure out, but way too many ND fans refused to see the inherent risks of hiring a coordinator with no head coaching experience.

    LOL, “the chosen one” right @Bobref?

    Starting a lacrosse player at the most important position on the field hasn’t paid off.

    When does Tommy Rees start to feel some heat? Seriously, ND didn’t land a QB in the 2022 class and don’t have one committed for the 23 class.

    Yep, so far he's working with Kelly's choices. Not a good start.


    Kelly won 10+ games for 5 straight years with those “choices”.

    Freeman can’t beat Marshall. He’s way in over his head.

    You're looking good for a week, I'll give you that. 

    Call it like I’ve see it.

    Freeman has been SCHOOLED in all three of the 2nd haves he’s coached in. Glad he can recruit, going to need to develop that talent way ahead of schedule.

  7. BD obviously a lot better than some people gave them credit for to begin the year, myself included, but man that just feels like a game they needed to win. 

    Hats off to Coach Patterson and the Bears. Wasn’t that long ago they were the laughing stock big school Indianapolis football. 

  8. 38-0 Irish.

    Cathedral came out swinging right out of the gate. Down 14-0, Chatard was able to put a couple good drives together sandwiched into between a Cathedral turnover, but stalled each time. Irish skill position players too much for Chatard and a pick 6 to end the half ensured a running 2nd half clock. Pretty ho-hum from there.

    Can’t find much to nitpick other than a couple senseless penalties. Chatard will be fine rest the way.

    The reason I asked? Because I had no idea where Whiteland was. Quite frankly I had no idea where Decatur Central was. Originally I didn't think Indy had any representation in 5A this year. Now it appears they have two. Calling yourself state champs is a little sweeter when you can say you went through Indianapolis to get there.

    Decatur Central has an Indianapolis address. It's just south of the loop in the SW corner of the city. It's a 10 minute drive from the airport. Whiteland is a growing suburban school in Johnson County, not terribly far from Center Grove. 

    Plainfield is also a 5A school that most would consider Indy area.

    Five Notre Dame compliments in one post? Are you feeling ok?


    I don't like Notre Dame, that doesn't stop me from being objective. Notre Dame devised a wonderful game plan last week against Ohio State. Which is why Freeman just laying down in the 4th quarter is even more befuddling.

    I don't see any of the donut county schools listed as Indianapolis Area schools here: https://www.greatschools.org/indiana/indianapolis/schools/?gradeLevels[]=h

    All those schools in that link have physical Indianapolis address. "Indy area" in most peoples minds are schools that make up metropolitan Indianapolis (city/township/surrounding counties). I myself think all the city/township + suburban schools make up the Indy area. Some think any school that is located in a bordering county is considered an Indy area school. Tough to convince me that a school like Martinsville or WeBo is an "Indy area" school.

    Doesn't really matter.  They are an accident of geography.


    Don't think Sheridan is "benefitting" from urban sprawl. I think the reverse is more accurate. Sheridan has one of the proudest football traditions in the state. They haven't won a sectional in 10 years. I would categorize their enrollment as stagnant at best. Seems like they are losing families looking to move closer to Indy. Certainly don't fit the profile of a school corporation benefitting from urban sprawl.

    I get it. I can say with passion Mt Vernon (Fortville) does not feel by De Facto they are a part of INDY. Just a thought.

    Mt Vernon (at least to me) feels like an Indy school. Large parts of Fortville and McCordsville are very suburban.

    I would not consider a school like Lebanon or WeBo to be Indy area school but by some people definition they are consider Boone is a doughnut county.

    I’m not sure I totally agree.  Week 1 was huge for the SEC with Florida beating Utah.  

    A two loss Georgia or Bama or a 1 loss Utah?

    Very real chance OSU and Michigan are undefeated when they play. A 1 loss OSU/UM deserves to get in over a 2 loss Bama/UGA, in my opinion. SEC champion is getting in regardless, B10 champion is likely getting in unless teams like USC and Clemson run the table. Still have to factor in the B12 champion while they are still intact.

    That depends on what Ohio State does. Shouldn't be that hard to get in when they're taking 12.


    Well 4 years from now that may be ND's angle but this year a 10-2 ND team shouldn't sniff the CFP. CFP is still taking 4 teams for the next few years. Trying to figure out ND's best win the last 5 years and wondering how they've made it into the CFP 3 of the last 5 years.

    Yes, ND’s floor is still 9 wins.  10/11 likely.

    Can't wait for the end of the year spin that a 10-2 ND teams deserves to be in the CFP because they played Ohio State close.

    Stay on topic. This is the Notre Dame thread.

    Freeman get his first dub this week? Will his team show up in the second half? Hope it's not close at halftime.

    Day getting cute is exactly why I am hesitant to call him a top tier coach just yet.  This was debated in the other thread.  Once he decided to commit to the run and the ND defense was gassed, it was over.

    50+ and +20.5 is still on the table huh?

    You're on
