    The wagon master was excellent! Thanks for bringing the bag full to share!

    Postseason is mostly done by sectional vs conference. It doesn't have to be. So feel free to start one if you want.

    Problem is that Judson at 4-4 is the best team Pioneer will face in the next few weeks. Don't imagine Coach Berry will be resting any starters. To the contrary, he might push them further into the 2nd half to test their conditioning as they have had enough rest so far this season!

    Weather forecast (cold and rainy) looks to favor the home bone team. If the school crew didn't mow this month it might help slow the Panthers too.

    Let's hope Judson goes 5 wide and throws the ball all over the field instead of running their bone... it's way easier for the defensive stat guy!

    The Purdue student Kiser is in prime form... I think he said he can now put down 40 oz in like under 2 sec! (He is 21 now so can do it legally too) Oh the good ole college days! The Pioneer football Kiser hasn't been officially clocked since Berry took a group to TCBoost Sports Performance in Evanston, IL around a year and a half ago - actually maybe 2.5 years ago! He ran 4.68 on their laser system. All the college coaches who hand timed him at camps or workouts would just smile and say "fast enough" when we asked how fast he ran in the linebacker group.

    I'm good Coach! I have some farming to do tonight after practice - no time to break down SN film dang it!

    We do not have any South Newton film yet. 😳 Sagarin does not anticipate a running clock or switch to JV players in its calculation of the point spread, which is odd that it wouldn't be factored in.

    Sorry I didn't ask for your approval FP, but I'm the one who added those games/file folders to our hudl account and did so about 3-4 weeks ago as those opponents films became available to us. I did not realize that Max Preps would pull them from hudl, so there was no intention to "show" those pubically. I work as far in advance as possible to set up the scouting films for breakdowns and such for our core coaches group. We prepare for every scenario. Its nothing new or that anyone else isn't doing if they are 100% committed to do their best to give the kids the best chance to succeed. If you think other high schools don't have guys working in advance of this week's game you are naive. That doesn't mean our players have access to it, because they don't. But our coaching staff constantly looks back at our own game break down data to do self-scouts on our tendencies, as well as keep and eye on what's coming so we can adapt and prepare personal wise or scheme wise as far in advance as possible via individual drill routines or scout team period. Is Pioneer fortunate enough to currently have a larger margin of error which allows a bit more of this, sure. But we are not going to apologize for having a great coaching staff that puts in a ton of hours (our DB coach had 15 hours on hudl last week alone) preparing to be the best and leaving no rock unturned. There's a reason Coach Berry is 37-1 as a Varsity coach! BTW... I added more games since the time you noticed, so you may find that interesting if you want to take a look.

    Probably the same amount LCC will focus on North White. Work smarter, not harder.

    I've seen the statement somewhere.. prepare to win, or you're preparing to fail.

    Agree with this. Until you have been intrinsically involved in the Power 5 recruiting cycle, it's very difficult to understand. Its a dog-eat-dog world, and its totally fluid for both the recruit and the college. Parents & kids must look out for themselves and their own interests. I'll add that if SJ was interested in OSU and needed more time to evaluate, then he did what was best for him by verbally committing to OSU and holding that spot. The IU offer wasn't going anywhere, but the OSU offer would have moved on. Now that he was able to gain more information or evaluate it longer and he knows where he wants to go, then he switched. This process and the way its maneuvered isn't the same for everyone, but like mentioned above a kid and his family shouldn't have to apologize or explain themselves and try to justify the decision to anyone. I'm sure IU Head Coach Tom Allen has to be excited for sure with the final result! And congrats to SJ and his family on this difficult decision.

    Interesting Triton/Winamac week 9 and week 11. Be interesting how both coaches play their cards this week.

    Agree it was a great competitive physical OT game regardless of who won. Hope we see another Pioneer/Judson game like that soon.
