  1. The number one goal should somehow get schools to vote. That is what should be figured out. I just talked to IHSAA and our crew did not receive a sectional only because school votes. He said all votes we received were good, but we did not receive too many. I wonder if our problem is we did smaller schools and some Charter schools and they may not have voted. I know last year four of the IPS charter schools did not vote. If so much emphasis is going to be on the school votes then, something should be done to encourage them to vote. As a new crew when you have only been together for a few years and the same schools want you back you are limited to who gets to vote for you. Looking at we only have had about 30 total school worked for in 3 years. That eliminates several votes and then when some choose to pay the fine and not vote we pay the price. Maybe find an incentive for the schools that vote. I think that is where it starts. We were observed, went well, met all requirements, did some 4A to !A games, the votes we got were good and yet it all came down to coaches who just did not vote.
  2. Well you can't get experience if you do not get selected. We again did not get one and we as a crew are done playing this game. We will wait to see what our votes looked like this year and move on whenever they come out, but I am in my fifties and this process is not beneficial to young guys or old guys. So I am done doing the meetings and pay the association fees. I will just work our games we have for the next three seasons and be done with trying to brown nose the right person. You look at who gets sectionals in all sprots and its the same guys year in year out many times the same guys from sport to sport. Yet there is those that say the good ole boys club does not exist..
  3. The assignments are released today. Have they been or are they supposed to be?
  4. The goal should be to be fair. If a crew works a state they should not be eligible for a state again until they meet the requirements of a first year sectional crew. How ever long it takes that crew it should take a crew to return to state. That is one of the reasons there are less officials and many crews that do not even apply for tourney because of this. We are in our fourth year and our ratings have been pretty good, we jump through all the hoops, watch the silly videos, go to meetings where many times they are talking about things other than football (one meeting I was part of talked about drinking alcohol throughout the entire meeting as well as the cussing used), pay an association fee and not get more than a first round sectional. It is not worth, we may as well be a crew that just works Friday reg. season. Not jump through the hoops and not be held as accountible.
  5. I know in a few states after you get a State you have to start over and go through the steps again.
  6. That is not my question. If only 7 schools vote, and are all 2's and higher. You technically did not get enough votes. Would a one qualify you. Too many schools do not vote, that is why I am asking.
  7. One of the coaches from this game told me the crew was the 5A state championship crew from last year. Sometimes mistakes are made and that is just what it was. I am sure each of us have made mistakes in penalty interpretation.
  8. Per the IHSAA from an email I read about another crew. You do not have to have a 90% to get a first round sectional if you meet all other qualifications. You just won't have that member if you advance to second round. I was surprised by that from the IHSAA. On the voting, I think coaches should have three days to vote on their recent crew following the game they did. With all the technology that could easily be done. When they submit their film they do a quick vote. Too many coaches either don't vote or forget. Some schools the ADs vote and get no input from the coach others, the coach just doesn't vote. There should be a penalty for coaches who do not vote for anyone good or bad. My question it says you must get 10 school votes. I have been told a "1" is not good. But is a "1" better than a no vote when counting towards the ten?
  9. When will officials getting tourney be announced. Last year the release date changed like three times. I mean it always the same guys anyway and that is why there are fewer crews because of the BS.
  10. The receiver coming off the line and running a short flag is where to focus on. The LJ was not part of the question. Even though he was on the field, slow to get there, etc. LOL
  11. After I get some input. I will let you know what we were told by the IHSAA office. https://photos.app.goo.gl/fJ3CnvHhd8EGvxX16
  12. When are rankings for crews released. Not sectional assignments, but just the rankings?
  13. Few questions. 1. How did the IHSAA get permission to have more fans. We just played in a Marion County School and they said only two parents per kid allowed at any Marion County Game? 2. Would it have made more sense to just put the fans in the game before in opposite corners, then have the fans in the next game use the other opposite corners and they could clean during the next game? Just asking because there was NO social distancing in line waiting to get back in and we were in line for at least 30 minutes. People without masks, shoulder to shoulder. IHSAA is telling the schools to do this, but then when it comes to them making money they seem to disregard it. 3. Is there a reason no running clock in the State Finals?
  14. I thought success factor could not cause teams up to move down. I swear I heard last time they put all the classes together then move the SFs up, but no one down due to that?
  15. So is CC Ben Davis and Pikes JV kids? 4 of the 6 state champs will be private schools
