A whole month and a half later than this thread started last year. I figure it's time.

I don't know much about the MSC so feel free to help me out.

The only coaching opening in the two conferences was in Clarksville. It's been filled but I never saw anything on here so here it is. Looks like a good hire.

Is Brownstown the team to beat? I think they lost a lot but that may not be right.

PLAC wise Paoli should be really good again and Mitchell brinsg back a really strong Senior class. I feel like West Washington ended an era last year with some of those graduations. They bring back some good linemen and Holden Bowsman should move to QB with the offense being centered around Bobby Freakin' Stevens. Perry Central got better as the year went on and won't have a freshmen QB again. Crawford County got some new jerseys last year. They were nice.

I'm very interested in WW. I'm wondering if they move Steven's to RB. That dude was crazy good for a freshman last year. Lose all the RBs some lineman but I think they will be in good shape. Looking forward to seeing Bowsman at QB full time. I'd imagine so more QB runs are coming.

My 1st attempt at a Miner Pride breakdown. *Sizes are off last year's roster.

Paoli-They appear to return half-time starter Senior Ty Lawson (5-11, 165) at QB with All-Conference Seniors Ian Strange (5-9, 165) and Timmy Burton (5-10, 165) at Slotback. Senior Austin Carmickle (5-10, 189) would be my guess to fill the fullback spot. They also bring back 3/5 of their OLine with Seniors Michael Campbell (6-0, 206) at C and Jarrett Coleman (5-7, 195) and Jace Ingle (5-11, 185) on the right side. Defensively, Senior All-Conference Michael Campbell (6-0, 206) is back at DE with senior Jace Ingle (5-11, 185) on the other side. Seniors Austin Carmichael (5-10, 189) and Timmy Burton (5-10, 165)  at OLB along with Seniors Ian Strange (5-9, 165) and Ty Lawson (5-11, 165) on the Inside. They will have to find some new DB's with senior Carter Elliott (6-0, 150) being the only returner in the secondary. Paoli also bring back 2016 starter at ILB Zane Anderson (6-2, 215)  who missed last year with an injury. My guess is they move Lawson to DB and return Anderson to the middle. Last year's roster shows they should bring in 18 seniors this year and 10 juniors to start the 2018 season.

Mitchell-May have a QB controversy as 2016 starter Senior Tyson James (5-10, 162) missed last season with an injury. Junior Luke Lafevor (5-9, 132) started the last few games last season and the two may have to fight it out to decide who gets to hand the ball off 55 times a game. Senior All-Conference RB Brandon Brazzell (5-9, 192) and Junior Trey Speer (6-2, 170) will get a lot of those carries. I would expect Senior Ian Tincher (5-8, 185) and Juniors Levi Smith (5-6, 165) and Dorian Duncan (6-1, 194) to be in the mix in the backfield as well. Seniors Reid Marlow (5-6, 228), Noland England (6-0, 271) (All-Conference), Parish England (5-11, 260), and Shane Conley (5-6, 246) (All-Conference) all return. Junior Dane Pritchett (6-0, 181) will be back at TE or split end, depending on how they use him. Defensively, Mitchell brings back 5 starters. Shane Conley (5-6, 246) at DE is the lone DL returnee. Junior MLB Dorian Duncan (6-1, 194) and Senior Tristen Sites (5-8, 150) is at back at OLB. Junior Luke Lafevor (5-9, 132), Senior Leyton Allen (5-7, 124) return in the secondary. It looks like Mitchell will have 10 seniors and 9 juniors this season.

West Washington-Sophomore WR Bobby Stevens (5-10, 182) led the conference in receiving and Holden Bowsmen (6-0, 134) started the majority of the game last year but I would expect Stevens at RB and Bowsman at QB. Other than that, WW will be replacing all their skill positions. They return Sophomore Charles Madden (5-10, 224) and All-Conference tackle Caleb Murphy (6-3, 224) on the OLine. Defensively, WW bring back Juniors Caleb Murphy (6-3, 224) and Trenton Benskin (6-0, 230) at DE, Junior OLB Mason Armstrong (5-10, 178), Junior DB Chase Farmer(6-0, 158) (All-Conference) and Sophomore Parker Green (6-1, 146). WW should be thin in the senior department this year with only 3 coming back along with 10 Juniors.

Perry Central-Sophomore Cameron Bland (5-9, 170) returns at QB and  Senior Levi Simpson (6-0, 165) is back at FB. Senior All-Conference WR Clay James (6-0, 170) is back also. Perry Central bring back the majority of their OLine with Seniors Colten Bland (6-1, 205) and Ty Cronin (5-9, 200) returning with Junior Tackle Garrett James (6-2, 220). Perry will have to find a RB but I would think Simpson, James, Senior Gavin Poole (5-9, 180) would all get a look there. Defensively Seniors Ty Cronin (5-9, 200) and Colten Bland (6-1, 205) are back on the DL along with Junior Garrett James (6-2, 220). PC will have to find some LB's as Senior Gavin Poole (5-9, 180) is the lone returner. In the secondary, Perry bring back Senior Clay James (6-0, 170) and Junior Josh Smith (5-11, 140). Perry should have 9 seniors and 13 juniors this year.

Crawford Co.-Crawford actually showed improvement as the season went on. They scored 32 point against Paoli and lost their sectional game to Mitchell 20-26 in OT. Unfortunately for them, they lost 7 starters on offense and 6 on defense. It looks like they will have 10 senior and 9 juniors which I would think isn't bad for them. Seniors QB Tate Arnold (5-10, 160) and  TE Nick Stroud (6-5, 200) as the only returning skill guys. The left side of the OLine returns with All-Conference tackle Peyton Howerton (6-3, 220) and Daulton Stout (6-0, 175). Howerton played some in the backfield as well. Never know where you will find him. Defensive line is the same as OLine with Howerton and Stout as the only returners. Other than that, the only returners are in the secondary with Senior Tate Arnold (5-10, 160) and Junior Preston Coleman (5-10, 149)

Should be a fun year in the MSC.

You have to have North Harrison as the favorite with their entire backfield returning, but lose a lot of those lineman.

Brownstown losses alot of O-line and D-Line. JV squad was down also. However Reed May always figures a way to be good.

Silver Creek loses D1 recruit Garrett and alot of those good D-Lineman. Will be interesting to watch if they can reload or have to rebuild.

Salem loses Indiana All Star  6'4" speedy receiver Brishbauer. However they return maybe the best player in league in their QB. JV Team was best in Conference. Would not be surprised if this is the year Salem is "Back".

Charlestown suffered their first losing season in 10 years. Lots of young kids got starts and playing time. JV only suffered 1 loss. Have to disagree on the previous post stating 7 defensive starters gone. By my count  8 defensive starters return with 8 offensive starters return. Look for a bounce back for the Pirates as they looked good in a closer then the score was loss to Batesville to end the Season. Rember the name Marian Lukes.

Scottsburg had a great 1st full varisty season, but lose a ton of seniors. Senior to be Speedster Kaden Sparkman will be key to bridge this rebuild season.

Eastern had a nice season. Had alot of tough close losses. Lose a few key players. Coach Dean is doing a nice job.

Corydon was a young last season also. Coach Humphrey still has work to do but has them climbing back up the MSC standings.

Clarksville has a new coach. Maybe toughest rebuilding job in the state with the Indiana longest losing streak at 35 games. Small numbers and loses of best players will make it a tough uphill struggle.

You live in Mitchell, your kid goes to Valley, you love WW, I really hope you work in Crawford Co, and eat at Marcy's in Leopold regularly. You would be the perfect mascot for the PLAC.

Looks like WW currently has 2 openings in schedule in weeks 6 and 8. Guess series with Tecumseh has ended. I imagine it might be tough filling these games.

Not many options out there. Dugger has a week 8 opening according to John Harrell. I'd guess that's a step up from who they were playing in Week 8.

Well that's definitely new. Always fun seeing new teams. We only have 2 road games so far. Hopefully something gets done for week 6. Not sure how tho. Maybe out of state? Used to play Kentucky Country Day from time to time.

Bowman Academy went 6-3 last year but didn't participate in the sectional. I don't know anything about them. Wonder why they didn't play in post-season?

A quick google searched refreshed my memory.

Define "end of an era".

We simply call Stephens "Flash", and he will be the RB.

Very excited about our Sophomore and Junior classes. 18 of them saw significant playing time last season, pushing seniors for playing time.

I called it "end of an era" because I feel like  Farris, Tanner and Griffin Packwood are holdovers from the group of Sizemore, McPheeters, and all those linemen and big receivers you had out there in '15 and '16. The "Flash"/Holden/Green era feels separate from those guys. I would suggest going with the Bobby Freakin' Stevens nickname. The Flash has been done. Feels unoriginal.

I am much less tied in to what is going on at Brownstown since my son will be graduating next month,

but I did see that they bulldozed the sod off of the field yesterday in preparation for the turf.

It would be weird for you to say "Bobby Freakin' Stevens" every time we have a big play.
