  1. I have never really thought about your PDF 1 option. I just thought for sure that Cass and Pioneer would be in the same sectional. I like that split. It would make for a possible late match up if Cass could win a few in the tournament.
  2. What are the terms of the Desir deal?
  3. I am indifferent about this deal. I think that they are using Devin as a buffer for Cain to come along. It is a one year deal, so it is off the books fast. I like the big body. Maybe Frank and the boys can get this guy up to 70+ receptions and 10-15 TD receptions this year. I am really shocked by some of the deals that are going down right now. CJ Mosely just received 85 million over 5 years with 51 of that guaranteed. If the Jets were one or two players away I would say bravo. But they aren't close in my opinion. The Redskins are spending money like they are in the hunt. Landon Collins is a good player, but I cannot see the money he received either. This market is crazy right now. I want the Colts to get CJ Mosely caliber guys in, but this type of movement will destroy a team long term.
  4. Team A up 1 point 39 seconds remaining on their 2 yard line and it is 4th and 25. Game clock and play clock are running. Team B has no timeouts. Team A in the huddle has no intentions of running a play. Team B has a legitimate injury on third down. Clock stopped for injury at 39 seconds. Team A has done everything right to run the clock down and win the game. Now what?
  5. Middle school is a different beast altogether. I know our guys play a team that always lines a 50 number up at TE. We are trying to teach our kids about the game. Identify ineligible numbers that cannot go out and so on. They always throw to him. Our guys complain and they claim they do not have any other number for him. Ref's buy their story and our kids get a cheap one pulled on them.
  6. Sounds like you are taking the approach that most coaches would expect. Do you feel that you represent the majority of officials and the way they approach it. I fear that we are going to create this perception among officials that all RPO teams are sending linemen 8 yards downfield on every pass play. As was mentioned earlier, coaches are putting bugs in officials ears prior to the start of the game. I anticipate more calls that might have passed last year being called this year. I just hope that we do not have officials that assume all RPO's or Playaction passes have linemen downfield.
  7. Good to hear. Pin and Pull RPO's often do not get lineman down the field as you are referencing. Take a look at some of those cuts on youtube.
  8. I will add that I think many officials are educated on this. I was trying to validate why RPO's are not going away, if the rule is applied correctly.
  9. This where many officials in my opinion need to educate themselves. Many RPO's never send a lineman downfield prior to the pass. Plays are often timed up so that pulling guards are used and double teams are engaged. Passes are gone and the play continues...then defensive coaches are yelling for linemen downfield. As the play continues the linemen do often venture downfield, but the pass is away and caught because of the timing of the play. I have seen RPO's that have lineman downfield 10 yards and it is an obvious call. But an engaged lineman will stay close to that 2 yard cushion.
  10. Can any officials expand on this? What is the point of emphasis? Why is run/pass option mentioned?
  11. I don't think anyone is arguing that TY was the Colts #1 receiver this season. I strongly feel he is a guy that needs a player like AB to allow him to reach his full potential. He has big play potential, but would be deadly if he was opposite a big time receiver type or motioned into a match up situation. This is need for the Colts to be able to beat the top tier teams in the NFL. I want us to improve the defense also. But I believe we have the cap space to sign back what we want and bring in a top CB/DE/WR. You may need to decide between a DE and CB. I just don't want us to sit back and stay the course. I am all in on Ballard and his drafting success, but even he said they were lucky this year. I think even he knows it is the right time to pull the trigger on a deal if it works for the team and locker room.
  12. Do we bring Slauson back? Still feel we could use a solid back up for Kelly. Has never made it through a season healthy. Boehm(sp?) performed well. I believe he is a restricted guy.
  13. I will comment as a coach that was at the meeting. The Cass athlete was nominated by his coaches. There are a healthy amount of good players in our region. The particular player did not necessarily stack up in the measurables as well as the other players. He was a kid that got better all season. He was an average player at the beginning of the season and made himself into a better than average player by the end. He received IFCA All State, AP All State, Kokomo Tribune, and All Logan Land. He was also Academic All State and Team Captain. Not a bad senior year. Region All Star would have put the cherry on top for his season. There were some teams with lesser records that got kids on. It does not mean that they were any less deserving. I cannot try to reason how a 6-4 team gets 3 guys on and a 7-5 none. It sometimes comes down to the number of kids nominated in a position group. I will also add that this is the first year in 2 years that any Cass coaches went to the meeting. There have been conflicts and miss communication at times that have prevented in coaches attending. This may not sit well with some coaches. I don't know. But there is a responsibility that comes with coaching, and representing your team when you have kids to nominate and when you don't is one of those. I will say it was disappointing, but it does not define this kid. I talked with him last night, and he was good with it. Like I said, it was going to be the cherry on top. Nothing more.

  14. Saw that. Maybe you cannot make both lists. Kind of like the top 50 thing.
