    Hats off to New Pal for being willing to play anybody.

    With the way the Summer rules are set, there are opportunities to get the looks you want to see in full 11 on 11 competition. We have been going to St. Francis for several years now. While there is a 7 on 7 segment, there is also an inside run period and a full 11 on 11. Last year, there were 6 teams. While that may be overkill, it still gives you the full look of a variety of offenses. My issue with 7 on 7 is with the club teams that travel. They are not coached by high school coaches and in a lot of cases (at least what we see in this area) is that there is no coaching experience, AND they are running systems that we do not run. Read progressions are different as well, and "coaches" are "tweaking" techniques, counter to what they are being told in our program. I have a friend who would argue with me about how a certain club here in the area would get kids exposure that the high school could not; traveling to Georgia and Florida, etc. I then asked, how many scholarships are being offered to kids that compete there? How many of the top recruits in the Southern states are even competing in these tournaments? Now, a clear sign that this type of thing is out of control; a college coach calls asking about a kid he had seen on film from these. The high school coach could not remember the player. Turns out, the kid was never eligible to compete on the high school team. The coaches are going to the facilities that are training these kids BEFORE they are going to the high schools, or before they even talk to the high school coaches; and the communication between the facility "trainers" and the high school coaches is non existent. Bottom line is that it is all about the money, and to make matters worse, the paying clients are being told that kids are definitely scholarship players; and when they see no offers come, guess who gets blamed?

    Both schools have tremendous coaching. The Dude wouldn't be surprised if these games are close and on the other hand the Dude wouldn't be the least bit surprised if CG ends up out matching NP as well. Good to see this series happen. Good for IHSAA football.

    I didn't read all of it but I think it states that "if a team wins conference in prior year and returns nearly all their starters, said team cannot add a all conference transfer from similar conference."

    Game is still over a year away so hard to judge what kind of matchup we'll see. Just glad to see it happen instead of debating what could happen if they played.

    7 on 7 is very important in my opinion. Your teams offense may not run a spread or a RPO offense. They may even be a run oriented team where 80% or more they run the ball. it's hard for your teams defense to under stand route combinations or RPO's unless they complete in 7 on 7's with teams that do. As much as your offense tries to give you a look at teams that run them the speed and accuracy is hard to duplicate. It helps you as a coach to understand where your team needs extra help.

    Similar in size of school (Mishawaka would be the 5th 4A school of 8 schools in the NLC). Similar in that they're a "one horse" town school (I.e Warsaw, Plymouth, Goshen) with a very good following. Similar in competitiveness as the NLC across the board in all sports.

    What happens when Elkhart consolidates and the NLC is left with 7 teams? What is the next step? 1. Who does the NLC proactively go after? Remember, the NLC by-laws state that each school must participate in all recognized sports. 2. Is there a chance the NLC disintegrates because there may be a push to form another conference poaching teams like Warsaw, Goshen, and Concord? 3. Is there a chance of forming a mega conference between the NIC and NLC with large and small school divisions? 4. Does the NLC continue on like it had in the past with 7 teams until someone comes along like Memorial and applies for membership? There are rumors the former NSC schools are not happy in the NIC...maybe one of them will apply? Interesting food for thought. The consolidation is coming and it will affect a lot of schools in one way or another.

    Poorly written queries were causing MySQL to crash. There were other issue but they were related to the above. Long queries were being logged and the hard drive filled to 100% which locked the machine up trying to ready and write to a full drive. I think I have things resolved but anything can happen.

    Hello everyone, It is about that time of the year again. Taking a list of who wants to take part in this year's GID Football Poll. Just list what classes you would like to vote in. If you are just going to vote to get your team a vote, then please do not bother. We are looking for mostly Un-biased voters to create the best poll out there. I will start things off, as usual I will vote in all 6 polls. Here is to another great year for the GID Poll

    As a DC, I love 7 on 7. Obviously I get to work coverage but it's also a great time to work force rules and secondary run support. We also work on communication and option rules. From my stand point, it's hardly lost its purpose. No one is saying it should replace 11 on 11 but 7 on 7 certainly has its place in practice.

    but if you truly want to see what type of Qb and O-Line you have 7 on 7 does nothing. The true test is the current 11 on 11 format. You get to see the physicality of the line and see what kind of qb you have once he gets hit. I know the 11 on 11 is not live but it gives a much better picture of what type of team you have and the one that you could have. Again just an opinion

Michael has a heck of a story, and this is really awesome that he's getting this opportunity. Good luck to the Legends.

    Ok, not Penn, not a city school, not Elkhart. But a long-standing member. Who does that leave? Hmm. Very interesting!

    We were with them in the NSC and are currently with a couple CST schools in the HNAC. Teams handle the time zone thing by typically splitting the start time. A game that may start at 5:00 EST would start at 5:30 instead. It's typically not a problem unless you run into situations where daylight is an issue, such as early spring baseball or softball.

    That would have to be New Prairie. It's a 65 mile drive from Warsaw, although all highway miles. This would be a good way for the Cougars to get into a better conference than the NSC was and avoid Penn in the process, which it seems they've been trying to do for some time now. It would be a nice fit as far as school size and make-up.

    I don't know if Penn would even consider the move. I just struggling with the fact that the NLC schools are afraid of 3,700 students. I look at those schools are places that are always pushing to be better.

    As a former athlete at Bremen, I would be adamantly opposed to going back to the NLC. The conference basically ran us out of town in the 80s, and yes, I am bitter! (I loved participating in that conference!) But, personal feelings aside, I don't think Bremen is a fit any more now than they were back then. Not that they could not compete in some sports, but just probably not enough of a challenger in all sports to make them worth having. I don't like a 10 team conference, so I would rather see the NLC pick up one replacement team. And the one that makes the most sense to me is Fairfield. I'm not sure if they compete in all NLC sports though. And I'm pretty sure they gave the disbanding NSC a resounding "NO" when they inquired about Fairfield moving from the NECC.

    "If I don't get out of town, I'll be dead tomorrow", sounds kind of ominous. It does pique one's interest.

    Great day today. Thanks to all the teams that came out. I spend most of the day with the linemen and there are some line coaches who are going to have a ton of fun with the boys I saw today!

    I want to thank Coach Jenson at Manchester University and his staff along with all the folks at Manchester University for the hospitality and making it a great week for Team Camp. We have had always held our team camp at Saint Joseph's College but with them shuttering the doors a new home was needed and Manchester stepped up and provided a great place to work with our teams. 11 teams participated.

    This kind of reminds me of Perry Meridian bailing out of Conference Indiana. Couldn't compete, so they looked for softer opponents. You either play the people in your conference or look else where. East finding opponents mid season won't be easy, especially when you figure the six remaining Confence Indiana teams are looking to fill their schedules with Perry Meridian and Franklin Central leaving that conference. Unless CE wants to step up and schedule CI teams. Moving the C. East - C. North game to mid season might be interesting.

    The article made it sound like CG called first. But this game will be during week 2, so unless there is a super rough Warren game then CG won't be in rough shape. But that is very possible and the WC game has hurt some of our studs in the first game of the season recently.

    New pal had a great great team for .two years, that 'may' have been able to compete with CG during those seasons for maybe a half or three quarters. I think the reason NP may have been able to compete with cg for a half during NP's run was because cg is usually beat up with the mic schedule. I am really surprised that CG agreed to this series Maybe if Eric Moore wasn't there and the cg program was like a franklin central program ( similar enrollments but just a ho hum h.s. fb program like fc) then yeah maybe it would be competitive.

    Any word on any assistants coach white is bringing onto his staff? His staff is very young and inexperienced. It is just him and his two boys. With all the success the jays have had over the years, there has to be some old time players that could help out.

    The reasoning in the article, for the end of the Whiteland series, is due to it not being a competitive series. You would have to think that the same will happen when these two teams face off. I am hoping for great matchups, and would love to see this becoming a rivalry, but would honestly be shocked if that happens. I do know that coach Ralph will have his teams as prepared as possible for these games.

    I think the four best teams in Indiana (Ben Davis, Carmel, Warren Central, and Center Grove) are all better than Cincinnati St. Xavier so their Ohio state title doesn't mean that much to me. St. Xavier always plays a tough schedule so it's not a matter of wimping out. So don't put words in my mouth. There is no reason this series shouldn't have continued between these two excellent programs. It's no coincidence that St. Xavier chose not to renew the series after the way the game ended last year. Warren won on a hail mary and St. Xavier's feelings got hurt because Warren celebrated on their field. And because of St. Xavier's hurt feelings, an elite program like Warren can't fill out their schedule and Warren's players may be deprived of a ninth regular season game. You only get so many Friday nights to play on in your life.

    Mishawaka similar to Nappanee and Wakarusa? Mishawaka similar Milford and Syracuse? Mishawaka similiar to Plymouth? Mishawaka is more similar to South Bend than anyone in MIshawaka could care to admit.
