Mayweather vs. McGregor, named fight of the century, some people disagree. Many people were unsatisfied with the fight as many people say the fight was “rigged” and “ended too early”. The fight managed to last to Round 10 where the referee stopped it and gave Mayweather the win, which people classify as a “rigged decision” which made many people mad as it was one of the most bet on fights ever.

Young Thug was never told that he won a VMA. During the VMA’s Young Thug was the winner of one of the awards, however he was never told this in advanced so he wasn’t there to accept the award. Imagine winning something and not even knowing about it, thats exactly what happened to Young Thug. He didn’t know about the award until the day after when he was told by one of his managers that he won a VMA. Young Thug said himself “At first I thought he was lying, but I was excited to find out it was true. It would’ve been nice to know in advance though.”

The Mississinewa Indians come into the 2017 season off of a stellar performance in 2016 going undefeated in the regular season and winning the CIC Conference making them 9-0. The Indians then went onto win the first round sectional game against the Logansport Berries making them a perfect 10-0. The very next week the Indians traveled to Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger for sectional round 2 where they would lose their first and final game of the season ending them at 10-1 on the year.

Now for the positive side of things The Indians are returning Senior Cade Mccoin for his fourth season at the QB position with the cousin duo of Junior Heisman Skeens and Sophomore Cade Campbell joining him in the backfield. Mccoin ended the 2016 season 89/139 completing 64% of his passes. Mccoin also threw for 1,500 yards for 21 TD’s. Rushing Mccoin had 225 yards and 8 TD’s. The Indians also return Senior Dustin Patton to defensive side of things, Patton comes off of a 2nd place finish in the conference tackles just shy of his teammate the graduated Nick Barrett. Patton ended with 135 tackles and Barrett ended with 148.

With the new sectional draw the Indians have been moved from Sectional 20 to Sectional 21. The Tribes number 1 goal is to win the conference but they are really hunting that Sectional title. Curt Funk Returns to the sidelines as the head coach for the Indians 46-29 coming into his 8th season. The team motto for the 2017 season is DAT 63 Discipline, Accountability and Toughess 63 stands for 6 second player with 3 great efforts.
