Anybody that’s been ridin’ with TheJayGravesReport for more than two days knows that I’m goin’ to keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! So you aleady know how I feel about the “Powers That Be” that set up this dull Indiana High School Athletic Association football playoff format. I wrote a crazy Hot Joint when the playoffs started a little more than a month ago talkin’ about this foolishness entitled “Unacceptable.”
I told boyz straight up that Ben Davis was bein’ mistreated because they were, first of all, bein’ sent to the east side to play in the sectional with both No.2 Warren and No.3 Lawrence Central and they live the far west side. So that was foolishness in and of itself. Then to top things off they were travelin’!!!
The No.1 team in the state and No.5 team in the COUNTRY that was UNDEFEATED was playin’ road games in the darn playoffs. Wheredeydodatat? So now all you’ve done is stuck a screw driver into the hornets nest. Like some real G’s they didn’t complain. They just handled their business. They played two tough ball games against the two next best teams in the state in the sectional.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! No way should the teams in the M.I.C. be playin’ each other early in the playoffs. No matter what the geography is bruh. The tournament needs to be seeded with the top teams playin’ the worse teams first.
The state championship was played three weeks ago when Warren Central and Ben Davis went at it. No way should Avon have been in the Semi-State because they should have gotten dealt with in the sectional by Ben Davis. Warren Central and BD should have battled for the state title on Saturday night and certainly not Penn.
Bruh…it was clear in warmups that Penn was goin’ to get ran out of the joint and they did 63-14. It was 49-7 at the half!!! That’s NUTS!!!! The ISHAA could have saved them that gas money from comin’ down here for that beatin’. As a matter of fact, I blame them for wastin’ everybody’s time comin’ to see that foolishness. It was over in the first 4 minutes. Ben Davis was up 21-0 before a boy could get his seat warm.
There were at least three other teams (Warren Central, Lawrence and Central Center Grove) in the M.I.C. that were far better than Penn and they got knocked off in the sectionals and regionals. I’m not so sure they would beat Carmel again. They just shot themselves in the foot with turnovers. Heck, Pike would blow the doors off of them too. It makes no sense!! Seed the darn tournament so that the best teams have a fair shot at playin’ for a title.
Now on some real talk, Ben Davis was goin’ run away with the trophy either way you slice it but it wouldn’t have been the foolishness we had to watch on Saturday night. They put up 49 points in two quarters!!!! Penn only gave up 69 the ENTIRE season!! So what does that tell you playa? It tells you that they AREN’T playin’ anybody and that 12-1 record was smoke and mirrors.
If you’re goin’ to have a playoff then do it right. Seed only the teams that deserve to make the playoffs. What sense does it make for a boy to win EVERY game on his schedule and then have to travel across town to prove that they score score 50 points in the regional then put up another 57 the followin’ week only to put up 63 in the title game.. The playoffs structure makes no sense and everybody and their baby’s momma found that out on Saturday night. Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
2) Wheredeydodatat?: Hood for “Who does that?”
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
