  1. I’m impressed you have knowledge about a school in a county that borders Tennessee and Virginia. That’s nowhere near Indiana. Lol
  2. Didn’t know much about Bell County except that, like Mount Vernon (Posey), their enrollment is in the 600s. Maybe I’m not giving those schools enough credit, but I penalized them both for that.
  3. 2021 Non-Conference Schedules BNL: at Martinsville, at Bloomington North, vs Madison Columbus East: at Whiteland, vs Columbus North, at Indianapolis Chatard Floyd Central: at Louisville Male, vs Louisville Manual, vs Silver Creek Jennings County: at Norwell, vs Brown County, vs Madison Jeffersonville: vs Bell County (KY), at Mount Vernon (Posey), at Silver Creek New Albany: at Bloomington South, vs Gibson Southern, vs Bloomington North Seymour: at South Dearborn, vs Brownstown Central, at Madison If you had to rank these non-conference schedules, w
  4. Still wouldn’t work for conferences with an odd number of teams. There’s always going to be a week where a team doesn’t have a conference opponent.
  5. More than nine-team conferences with eight conference games?
  6. Yeah I completely understand. By no means was I favoring a nine game conference schedule. On the positive side, it’s super easy to schedule and you don’t have to worry about finding a non-conference opponent for a certain week. On the other hand, you don’t get a good grasp of how you measure up to other schools in the state. I know the Summit Athletic Conference has had a ten team, nine conference game schedule since 2015 and the Southern Indiana Athletic Conference started doing the same this past season. Nevertheless, the consensus from the players, coaches, and fans in the SAC is
  7. @DanteEstonia What’s your opinion on ten team conferences in which you play everyone and don’t have non-conference games? Like it? Dislike it?
  8. They were somehow able to make it work for four years but I’m sure each year provides a new challenge due to the fluidity of the scheduling throughout the state.
  9. Thought I’d post this article from the Seymour newspaper. http://www.tribtown.com/2021/05/14/three_local_conferences_to_have_different_look_in_fall-3/?fbclid=IwAR2Uoava93zYpYlYU-8n55TYDwdi-vp7sgkPI7KkgH9Ud9qdFCg08X8NC8Y The two main points as it relates to the HHC are: 1. Madison applied for membership to the Mid-Southern Conference. With Clarksville leaving the conference at the end of the school year, the MSC will be down to eight football schools (Brownstown Central, Charlestown, Corydon Central, Eastern (Pekin), North Harrison, Salem, Scottsburg, and Silver Creek). The M
  10. Crazy to think Steve Cooley is now the longest-tenured coach in the HHC. He’ll only be in his fifth season.
  11. As much as I hate to compliment our rival, I have to agree. They have such a good athletic program and there’s a lot of value to the school overall.
  12. What’s the reasoning for why they wanted separation?
  13. Yeah but Columbus North is the Bull Dogs (two words) so there’s that. 😂
  14. Interesting. I had seen the student population had shrunk greatly over the last ten years but I didn’t realize they were considering going away from the three-school set-up.
  15. What do you mean? I guess I’m out of the loop on this one.
  16. Maybe. I’m surprised they didn’t try to apply. Conference Indiana feels like it’s on shaky ground. Maybe Columbus North has a lot of power within the conference. I don’t know.
  17. It’s just a consequence of two teams being in the same conference. Didn’t bother me one bit.
  18. Because we’re apparently supposed to treat it like collegiate sports where all the best teams form power conferences. I figured the “East needs to leave the HHC” talks would end after a state title in 2013 but they didn’t. Kept hearing how we only won because Cathedral was moved up to 5A due to the success factor. So, when we beat them en route to a 5A state title back in 2017, I thought the talks would end. They didn’t. It died down a little but never went away. We’re used to it with the Columbus North crowd. They never shut up about it and never will. As for everyone else, not sure what else
  19. They already tried breaking away from Conference Indiana to join the Mid-State Conference, much to the surprise of a lot of folks. I’d be curious to know if they’d even be interested in returning to the HHC.
  20. They already tried. They applied to be the eighth team in the Mid-State Conference but Perry Meridian was chosen instead.
  21. My whole confusion right now is trying to determine whether my Columbus East Olympians are staying in 6A or moving back to 5A. When the IHSAA said points earned through the tournament success factor from the last two years will still be applied, does that also mean the teams that were moved up due to tournament success but failed to garner enough points to remain playing up will move back down? If anyone with full knowledge of the IHSAA’s ruling could clear that up for me, I’d greatly appreciate it.
  22. If Columbus East and FW Snider are falling back to 5A then who will be replacing them in 6A?
  23. The IHSAA needs to hurry up and release the new enrollment figures. Don’t they know I have some sensible sectional alignment predictions to get wrong?
  24. I don’t like saying it. I try to be respectful on here because I truly do love this conference. Overall, I think it’s a great conference and I enjoyed competing against the other schools as an athlete and as a fan. However, the football side of things is rough and I hate that nothing has changed in 15+ years. Obviously I like that East is the top dog year after year but I’d also like to be able to see the other schools find success in the state tournament. I’d like to hear the Hoosier Hills Conference spoken about positively by other folks throughout the state. I get tired of hearing how “East
