LC Bears ranked #1 in HS FB

This the first time Warren Central, Ben Davis and Center Grove were eliminated in the first round of Sectionals since Indiana tournament football started in 1985.
I witnessed the mighty Warriors (defending State Champs) fall to Lawrence Central last Friday and surprised how fun it was to watch HS football. Tre Roberson is the QB - and he just might be the starting QB for the Hoosiers next year. I had gone to two whole games in the 10 years since I graduated, but I'll probably be doubling that total this weekend as LC hosts Perry Meridian. I felt as much pride as I do attending IU football games and its awesome to have a solid team to support. I'd be a real treat to see them make it to Lucas Oil next month.
Some interesting matchups this Halloween weekend:
  • Fishers @ Carmel
  • Valpo @ Merrillville
  • Avon @ Brownsburg
  • Bloomington North @ Columbus North (Week 3 rematch, Cbus won 27-24)
  • Terrible Haute North @ Pike (Patriots beat a good Zionsville team last week, Pike took down BD in OT)
  • Laf Jeff @ HSE (Jefferson won its first game of the season last week. This game will be a blowout)
  • Whiteland @ Columbus East
The final regular-season Coach's poll had these 5A teams ranked:
[WC, Valpo, Carmel, Mishawaka, CG, LC, HSE, Merrillville, Fishers, Pike] but the Freeman Rankings have da Bears ranked #1 - followed by WC, Carmel, Evansville Reitz, HSE, Pike, Bishop Dwenger, CN, Fishers, Cathedral, CE, CG, Elkhart Concord, Avon, Valpo, Mishawaka, Brownsburg, BD, Whiteland and Zionsville.

Hyperbolic Obit for Hyperbolic Orbit

Did you see the lunar eclipse this morning? Did you see the one last month!? Do you even watch the sky, bro?? Comet Leonard [named after Colts All-Pro Darius Leonard] aka c/2021, the year's best & brightest, will make it's first and only appearance in the East before sunrise (between Big Dipper's handle & Arcturus) and then in the western sky after sunset starting on the 14th, looking towards the sun (ouch!)  I say "only" appearance because this happened 80,000 years ago but let's be honest they didn't have the tools we have now, and we're not yet positive this'll be visible to the unaided eye. But we do know it's hyperbolic orbit will soon fling the comet out of the Milky Way, and possibly into another solar system lightyears away.  RIP Comet Leonard 12/12/21 You're a Star (& comet)

64-team bracket BLANK

Go ahead and knock yourself out with this blank bracket, but I ( and Joe Lunardi ) find it more enjoyable setting the field before Sunday...

Indy vs. Boston battle for America's best suburbs

Joining Carmel as one of the best places to live in America (and the world), neighbors Zionsville and Westfield are now also ranked in the top 10 in the newest ‘Best Small Cities’ study, according to WalletHub: Boston & Indy suburbs dominated the top of the list, with Lancaster (PA) taking the top spot.  Not only is Indianapolis one of the fastest growing cities in America, it's the only city on the list not located in the South or West:
