Not changing what I’ve said all year. New Pal wins the 5A state title. Don’t care if it’s by 1 or 152. These are the 2 best teams in 5A (maybe in the state), it’s a shame this is a Regional match-up. I’m predicting a hard fought game by 2 tremendous teams.

I like that it's at New Pal.   I've seen a couple Irish games and listening to tonight's it's very similar.  Lots of big plays but against good defenses they struggle a bit to move the ball.  It will be interesting to see how New Pal defends them.  And can Cathedral make the Dragons throw it and limit Spegal. Should be an instant classic.

Are “WE” allowed to talk about it now?  

Seriously though, this should be the game of the year regardless of class (sorry MIC fan boys).

Good, there will be plenty of seats available on both sides there.  Won’t be the case at New Pal.  (Hell, they may be lining up already.)

Agreed, def the game of the year and it’s not even close.

Remember, CG is the only MIC team that travels well! 😉

That's true.  But even with that there will be about 3 dozen max on the home side.

If it ends up being a blowout for either team and the Warren CG game comes down to the last play like it did lst year would it still be the game of the year?

It’s easily the “game of the year” on paper.  You’d have to be blind to disagree.

Nothing is guaranteed once the ball is kicked off and 16-18 year old kids are battling it out.

And I'll be one of them cheering my ass off. New Pal fans seem to think that just bc they had some success lately that they are the measuring stick for high school football. We may not have huge crowds at our games as of late but dont you dare look down on us.

No one is looking down on Warren.  There are 2 inarguable facts, 1) Warren has a great program,  arguably the best in the state  2) fan support at games is embarrassingly bad 

 

I don't pretend to know why, but the stands are at best half full, usually significantly less

Struggled to move the ball? Against who?

They hung 600 yards on St. Xavier and moved the ball up and down the field at Elder. Center Grove wasn’t their greatest game, but most of their drives stalled due to penalties. If there’s on Achilles heel with this Cathedral team it’s penalties. They aren’t the most discipline team.

This I do belive was the 1st time I have ever said anything about anyone looking down on Warren and he was. No whining here. I said where I would be and I'll be there with an eye being kept on the Cathedral game. 

Go Irish!!!!

They should remove 75% of the seats on the home side and 80% on the visitors.  Then it will look like beech Grove and will be full.   Easy fix.

How much you want to wager? A $50 for the GID? @Coach Nowlin I think I might have some action.

Negative, I think New Pal wins the game, although it wouldn’t be a shocker if Cathedral does win.
