  3. Agreed. I'm hoping this season isn't a fluke and Seiss has the Pirates back to where we would expect them to be: In the hunt for a playoff run and some quality talent on the roster. Their Senior class has 2 D1 commits in 6'7 320 OT Martes Lewis (Minnesota) and 6'0 WR Jeremiah Howard (Northern Illinois). 5'6 JR WR Armani Glass is popping up in the 247 database as well as 6'4 335 SO DT Kenneth Grant. You would have to go back to the Zac Well's era of competing for Regional and Semi-State Titles for the last time the Pirates had multiple D1 prospects on their roster.
  4. I really like this idea, except for the Saturday games. It seems like an attendance nightmare, a.k.a, revenue killer. Long term, I cannot imagine the Lafayette schools are thrilled to be in the NCC. I would limit the Saturday idea to a once a season extravaganza that can push the needle.
  5. Interesting. Mt. Carmel may have bolted the Big 8 prematurely. Of course, their exit created the domino effect of the SIAC and Pocket absorbing what was left of the Big 8.

  8. Jamaal Williams was a dominating RB for Merrillville. He ended up starting at Safefy for one of the best college defenses of all time, the '94 or '95 Nebraska team that annihilated Florida. I think one of the DL on that Nebraska D was from Lake Central.
  9. Carmel would walk away with the 6A title if D1 prospects were the deciding factor.
  10. Is Prather coming back this year for Morton? Man, I think they had Highland beat in OT if they wouldn't have missed the PAT at the end of the 4th Quarter. Morton controlled that 2nd half and was pushing Highland around by the end of the 4th.
  11. Some renovations made sense like CG, Westfield, Brownsburg. They needed the capacity and fans show up. It’s not always a packed house, but the crowds are large. Ben Davis and Warren were cosmetic makeovers. The current visitor side (old home seating) at each stadium is more than enough to accommodate the crowds each school brings to home games. The funding may have been private, it it doesn’t change the fact there was no real value added by building new home seating at BD and Warren.
  12. They’re primarily moving into downtown. I don’t see how that’s going to benefit the townships that still have a suburban feel to them. At the end of the day they’ll still move out to the ‘burbs when it’s time to raise kids.
  13. I don’t know if they made improvements over the years, but I used to have to sit through the madness of The Hillside Strangler back in the early 2000’s when I lived in Downers Grove and wanted to take the Eisenhower into the city at night. That’s where 290, 88, and 294 traffic merges to form the eastbound Eisenhower in Hillside. Now that’s traffic! I once got stuck in standstill traffic at the 94 and Congress interchange in The Loop at 10 PM on a Sunday night. Friday night on 465 is a racetrack minus some congestion on eastbound 465 between Keystone and Allisonville. . Honestly, for us Hamilton County folk, getting out to Avon is probably more time consuming than taking 465 around to the south side for CG, which is pretty easy to get to from 37 or Meridian via East Street/Thompson Road. Avon is about 100 stop lights on Rockville until you get to Dan Jones Road.
  14. This isn’t Chicago, LA, Atlanta, etc. I could get to CG from Noblesville within an hour on a Friday night. That’s a piece of cake for such a long distance.
