    Tough to find anything to be happy about ...disappointed for all college and high school athletes ....one decent bit of news for next year ...in addition to playing at new Albany Blackford was invited to the HOF classic and will play what would have likely been the final four of 2A had regional played out only swapping Linton Stockton for barr Reeve.....if anyone has doubts about Luke playing against high caliber teams then check out that tournament ....Blackhawk Christian BR and shanandoah can play against any team from any class and acquit themselves especially next year as SHS and BR return their top 3 scorers each ( barr Reeve essentially replaces Keegan oniel with Curt hopf )....should be a really fun 3 games and a good showcase for Luke hopf and furst

    Shame for the fans and shame for the players having to play in a strange low attendance environment but still thankful for the IHSAA not rushing to cancel and leave these kids and seniors with a disaster end to their dreams. My step son will get to go but it’s likely I’ll be watching my second Blackford game in three years from a stream rather than live ...good luck to the bruins and all the regional competitors around in the State stuck in this strange situation !

    A lot of them stick around to talk to ted and the coach and have been pretty interactive with fans ( jovial, personable, etc) if nothing he likes better comes along I’d be thrilled with ISU ball state or Akron ....the former two would allow me more opportunity to watch live games and the second I think would be his best ncaa tourney shot ( to have both regular chance to get in and chance to do some damage ) and it’s still close enough to make a game occasionally. thanks for the well wishes with regional the ticket riots caused a lot of community stress yesterday but other than that little controversy it’s been a really fun experience and you can tell the kids are thrilled i would doubt you’ll see much return action from the schools that Already made of their mind to offer they can call him to show him they are still interested but I’ll start doing pictures and posts for any new teams or return visits ( at the risk of escalating behavior which has already been termed nicely as “over zealous “ lol )

    Regardless of who it is ....it makes me sick ...id rather he only get offers from Oakland city DIII then get even a call from Purdue

    All the schools I mentioned have sent assistant coaches except ball states head coach came to the game at Burris ( it’s on their campus ) Purdue has sent reps that are not on the coaching staff ......I did post on several of these and was mostly ridiculed / given a “ big deal” attitude ....I have also posted on each offer he has received when received and gotten basically the same reaction because they are schools most people consider to be “ beneath iu “ ....I’m not arguing against their argument or lack of interest in the info simply justifying why I haven’t added to my already high volume but I will absolutely provide more on those topics as they continue to occur if you mean legit D1 as in playing someone that will go to a power 6 school for SURE I will say zero and he won’t unless he makes semi state where he will be against Blackhawk and that’s a fair point on your part but also a fair point is he gets those in the summer but the teams he plays (15-20 of them ) are competitive enough or competent enough that they can stop even D1 talent from scoring 30-40 points per game with 2-3 defenders and no one has been able to keep him from doing that ....I would say in season 1-3 players that COULD play D1 and then he plays a handful of your Wesleyan / Marian/ U of I players

    Not just unique ...it’s never happened for a player of any age according to every conceivable report I’ve seen ....he has several accomplishments that no one has ever duplicated in the history of our states most beloved prep sport and things like that will create attention

    I agree entirely with your perspective on the thread two things I will point out : 1. All the offering schools have had reps at games that I have noticed personally other than Milwaukee ...Toledo has been present more than anyone else but most have been more than once 2. I would agree 100% that I would be the first to quickly change Blackfords 3 or 4 worst opponents ( they could swap for Norwell delta and new castle , be competitive , and instantly have one of the strongest schedules in 2A ......it’s a misconception that their schedule is horrible or that they are chasing the scoring record ...if you take out the 3-5 cupcake games you see the rest of the schedule measure up at their size. They have a tough conference and their schedule last year had 7 sectional champions this year it has the past three state two A champs to go along with a top ten 3A all year and number 1 and number 6 ranked 1A teams. Next year they add new Albany and possibly a tournament at new castle. The scoring record I truly believe he could care less about ...watch him play ...when games are firmly in hand he looks to pass ....he played several games the last couple years against teams he could easily put up 50 or more points and especially towards the end of the session he has scored some of his lowest totals (17 pts last year against Anderson prep and lower totals against Burris this year ). I could see from the outside it looking that way but he really only cares about winning I don’t think he has any desire to beat bailey unless it’s en route to state or semi state appearances where his scoring is necessary.

    I THINK he means me ...I might be offended if he doesn’t for letting someone else show more interest than me

    I agree it’s set up well they couldn’t have asked for a better path ...if they don’t advance it’s on them I have seen Blackhawk and furst a couple times and know how dominant they look ...I know nothing about bowman ....would bowman even have a chance against BC ?

    I think you are spot on ...there have been several games that have gone that way and I think he’s very forward thinking for his age about trying to get the other players involved and get their confidence up moving into the next game .....I think it’s probably also correct about iu being a foregone conclusion however with the contact Purdue has made and with the offers they’ve made to people in the past ( foster loyer most recently ) I think if Purdue had more than one open slot left for 2021 he’d be in the running for it....absent getting to a legit 6’3 ( right now he’s not the listed 6’2) I don’t think iu will have interest even if he makes a state run and carries them there ( which also isn’t possible with Blackhawk Christian at the semi state match up) lol the tv guys people either love or hate I know lots of people that watch it on mute and I know some Blackford people that done come to the games specifically to hear them ...they are interesting characters
