Rinse and repeat... New season with the same 4 teams being mentioned as potential 6A champs... 6A has absolutely no parity... Maybe North Central can build on last seasons success and become legit contenders...

This is where Driven’s proposal makes sense.  CG is the only team in his proposal that can consistently compete with the other three.  It’ll never be “fair” but asking schools to compete in a tournaments against schools 2-2.5 times their size in terms of enrollment is asinine.

Which begs the question.  Why can CG do it with an enrollment of around 2500 (half of Carmel) yet no one else seems to have broken through and proven they can on a year in year out basis?

I have some theories but would love your input first.

You sure about this?  Results?

Am I sure he ran track?  Yes.  Am I sure he looks faster to me?  Yes.

I believe he ran 4x100 and 100.

Got it.  Just looked it up.  Thought he would be faster.  Didn’t crack the varsity lineup in the 100 (two can compete per event in the tournament) and ran on a 4x100 that finished EIGHTH at the sectional.

Where does he rank on the gridiron in terms of fastest players on the team?

What percentage of New Pal footballers compete in track in the spring?

Genuinely curious.

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 don’t think that can happen this year. With Carmel being moved to a south sectional, I believe all MIC schools are in the south.

Carmel moves south in 2020 I believe.

Ok...wasn’t 100% sure. So could be all MIC this year. Thanks!

If I remember correctly, there was an incident with the 4x100 team on the exchange at sectional. One runner stepped on another, rolling his ankle and shredding the shoe of the next runner.

As for ranking the players speed, I don’t know the answer to that. Top 5 at least?

Ralph also coaches track so there are quite a few football players that participate.

Not sure Spegal had ever run track before. It seems to have helped, as Ive notice a difference in spring and summer stuff.

In no particular order:

- Coaching staff consistency/congruency (length of tenure/early experiences) (Moore also coaching track)

- Facilities

- Athletic departments’ level of commitment

- Socioeconomics/home life

- Simplicity of playbook (I mean this in a good way.  Kids know it front and back early and they don’t try to be flashy and outsmart the room.  They know what they do well and they execute it to perfection.  Far too many coaches screw this up and make a simple concept complicated.). (Example:  The shotgun/spread on 3rd/4th and short.)

I would add a great feeder system is also needed.  One of the reasons young athletes know things front and back is because they've been running the system for years.  Plus, it feeds the culture at an early age.

That was sort of my intent with the coaching staff consistency/congruency portion of my statement.  Couldn’t agree more with you.

I would also add since they have been run the same off. starting in 2nd grade by the time they get to high school you can spend more time work on new things. Like the spread so in a since when you play cg you have to prepare for to total different off.

Maybe CS can transfer just before sectional time.. that sounds like a swell idea to me 🤪 

You know, give everyone else a fair shot in that sectional this year lol.
