Old Pal Wes,

Where is the Beech Grove QB if he's so amazing?

ACL. On the shelf for the year. Just happened last week. He was #2 on the depth chart.

Had moved up the depth chart pretty steadily since camp. Got named the backup last week. Parent told me it was literally the same day.

EDIT: You scoff. You don't think I'm right about him, it appears, based on your little cheap shot there. Go ask somebody else, then. If you choose not to believe me, that's fine. Do your own research. His film is out there. Ask literally anyone else that's seen him play. DePauw got a player they never should have gotten because he insisted on playing two sports and a lot of places wouldn't let him do that.

Yes! Why not Hiram? By the way, that same Arkansas HS coach also onside kicks after every score.

I remember seeing some news story about that coach. It seems like the football version of Grinnell's basketball system.

He's also got a ton of D1 studs to make stops after they don't convert. It helps that whole system work when you make stops.

I realize what the data says. I'm 100% on board with the concept on paper. But giving up 60+ each week because you turn it over on downs 7 times in your own end is a real good way to get fired. There's a bit of self-preservation in punting, too.

Just for the sake of discussion, I think it's interesting that one voter thinks Wabash is better than both Denison and DePauw. Denison might be the best of the three, truthfully. They're second in the country in scoring and fifth in total offense. That said, I also get that there's no concrete evidence of how good Denison might be because they've played 3 pretty bad teams. We'll learn more about Denison this weekend in Springfield.

DePauw A) just beat Wabash last year and B) DePauw and Wabash played Hiram a week apart. DePauw beat them by 27. Wabash beat them by 4. I think that matters when it comes how those two are ranked.

The twin and I have long dreamed of a bell game played on acres of Indiana farm land half way between the schools, standing room only.

Not sure you intended to describe North Putnam High School to a T, but that's what you've done.  ;D ;D ;D

No, they are not.

Oh. Good talk then. Thanks for your feedback.

You may not be but they quite literally were.

I don't think there's any shame in giving the Pups 21 yesterday. That's a pretty good offense.

Wabash's offense certainly isn't a world-beater. Truthfully, it isn't designed to be. They grind people out with ball control and whichever ridiculously talented RB stands back there and win with defense. Y'all probably don't want to hear this, but that's what happened yesterday.

Couple of turnovers got Wabash behind schedule on the scoreboard. Defense played poorly for a quarter. Gave up 7 in the last 3 quarters. It happens. The other team is allowed to make plays, too. Make some adjustments and play ball. I give a ton of credit to the Wabash D staff for making great adjustments.

Scouting report has been out on the LG's for a long, long time. Anything more than 3-4 empty possessions really increases your chances of beating them. If you turn them over (2 yesterday) or force punts (3 yesterday) you've got a chance to squeeze out enough O to sneak out with a win.

Not sure if this is the right place for this discussion...but here goes...

Watching Coach Creighton this past weekend got me thinking about Coach Raeburn.  He is in his second season at Savannah State.  I saw that this past spring, Savannah State decided to drop down to D2 for financial reasons.  Do you think Coach Raeburn knew that was coming when he took the job?  If not, I would imagine he is a bit miffed about it, because I would think he would see it as a setback to his moving up in the coaching ranks.  Am I all wet in thinking this?

The check still cashes!

You are going to like Andries, kid is just a solid athlete, should do good things over his career.  Just based on pedigree I am interested in O'Connor for Wabash.

Coached against him twice. Kid is more than an solid athlete. He's incredible. Broke something like 50 tackles combined in the two games he played against my former team.

Are we all reporting this week?

Most of the Indiana schools are in. DePauw, Wabash, Anderson, Franklin, Hanover, RHIT, and Trine are all already back.

Bit of a humble-brag there, Wes. I like it.

We didn't win a lot at my last stop, so you better believe I'm gonna brag about the ones we did get! Haha.

Here's a quick look at one of DePauw's new QB commits - Chase Andries from Beech Grove HS. Says he intends to play basketball, as well.

Here's film of him as a junior against the team I used to coach for. We played some good ones against him. Beat him 41-37 in the game you see in the film after we were down 25-0 at half. If memory serves, we missed something silly like 50 tackles just on him that night. Couldn't get him on the ground to save our lives. Beat him 42-34 the year prior after we were down 14 in the 4th.

He can ball. Excited to see him in Greencastle.

I really, really disagree with the thought that recruiting Florida is a trap.

It's the most talent-rich football state in the country with no D3 schools to recruit those kids.

I've got one outstanding ballot, gang. I promise this is coming.

If it's that good, then hurry up and post it.
