I'm back people. I present a new thread: MIC 2019. What a season it was for the Warren Central Warriors last year. They ran the table on route to the school's ninth football championship, a 27-7 victory over the Carmel Greyhounds. Can the Warriors repeat? Or will someone else have a say in it? I want your opinions for this coming season. 148 more days until high school football is back!!!

Go Warriors!!! 2018 6A State Champions

Some preseason rankings....don't mean a ton, but some expectations again for the MIC. 3 MIC schools in the top 100.

  • Carmel #35
  • Center Grove #74
  • Warren Central #81

https://highschoolfootballamerica.com/2019-high-school-football-america-preseason-100/

CG will find out real fast....at Warren and Carmel in weeks 1 and 3.  Sandwiched at home with New Pal and Ben Davis in weeks 2 and 4.

That is a gauntlet but such fun for all involved.

Where is Carson Steele at career rushing ? Will he be a threat to break all time numbers? Probably school record state record may be pushing it?

not sure why Stax.....

Avon is #13 and Brownsburg is #22.  7 of the 25 top preseason midwest are Indiana schools.  (all Indy metro area)

This is very exciting news for Indiana football. But keep it in perspective. For some reason, Ohio is in a different region than Indiana.

I would say the state record will be almost impossible after what Charlie Spiegle will put up this year.. I think he is only 500 yards away from breaking the record, he will run for 4000+ this year I’m sure.

Working fine today, thanks.  Funny they put Ohio is the east instead of midwest. Would have significantly altered the ratings.

No doubt and not sure why they did that.....

But its still good to see Indiana football hold their own when compared to Illinois, Michigan and Missouri.  Not sure we could have said that 10-20 years ago.

I see on 247 Charlie has offers from Army and Indiana State.  Can really see a fit with Army as a fullback, but not sure if he's interested in the military path.  Anyone with some additional insight about other potential landing spots following high school.

Love to see him run...when he's not playing CG!!  LOL!

Personally I see another dominant year from the MIC as four teams are sectional winners and among the last 8 standing (Carmel, BD, WC, GC).

I then see another all-MIC state title game at LOS.

Anybody honestly disagree?

I would like to see the IHSAA split 6A into two separate groups of 16.

6A - 16 schools

Super 6A - 16 schools

This would create two 4 week tournaments for each class.  Add a 10th regular season game and a bye week after week 10.  The week 10 games would pit all 32 schools against each other, avoiding potential sectional matchups, and encouraging intersectional games.  Example :  Center Grove vs Merrillville   

For starters the breakdown will be enrollment based.  Going forward, the classes will, be populated based on merit.  Schools in the Super 6A Classification will earn their status based on post season results.  Schools can move up and down from Super 6A to 6A based on results from year to year.

This format will break up the monotony of the the all MIC 6A final every year, and give other big schools a chance to play for a title.

Initial format based on enrollment would be as follows :

Super 6A

1112 Carmel High School 1359 1338 1267 1322 5286 2221 Ben Davis High School 1263 1075 1100 1061 4499 3433 Warren Central High School 961 962 960 938 3821 4344 North Central (Indpls.)

Arsenal Technical High School 614 716 696 582 2608 16 17 19 20 Lawrence North High School 702 607 632 655 2596

17 16 15 17 Center Grove High School 648 640 630 603 2521 18 18 20 23 Perry Meridian High School 626 619 605 595 2445 19 15 14 9 Portage High School 620 586 621 609 2436 20 19 18 21 Homestead Senior High School 678 580 586 580 2424 21 21 24 28 Carroll (F.W.)

Many schools who previpously had zero state title aspirations are now in the hunt for a blue ring.  Excitement and partiicpation are on the upswing.

CG would roll annually in this proposal.

Let me also add that I believe that BD would be a decisive underdog vs the sectional 5 champion.

CG, not necessarily.  Based on merit, they would likely bump up to Super 6A very quickly.  And there are some challengers in this 6A group :

LC

LJ

CN

Homestead

Solid programs.  With Coach Moore winding down his tenure, anything can happen.

I see what you are saying but in the case if LC, do we really want to see the 6th best team in the MIC in a potential “state title game” while the super 6a heavyweights battle each other and eliminate one another one by one?

I do actually like the proposal.  Just playing devil’s advocate.

I’m sure this is tongue in cheek.  Ohio football from a pure depth standpoint crushes Indiana.  As it should considering the population difference.

Does that mean Indiana teams can’t compete with the best from Ohio?  Absolutely not, but come on man.
