  1. I mean, just watching the first handful of plays, I'd say if the rule states an offense must be set a full 1 second before the play, yeah they clearly appear to be in violation.
  2. East Noble and Columbia City were going to be my next two suggestions before the Mishawaka conversation took the thought out of my brain. Part of me would rather the NLC just stick to 7 teams and allow for an extra out of conference game.
  3. I will vote again for the second straight year. Classes 4A, 5A and 6A. Really enjoyed doing this every week last season!
  4. Obviously they have been in conferences with teams from EST, but is that a scheduling headache or no?
  5. Is New Carlisle/New Prairie High School in the Central Time Zone or Eastern Time Zone?
  6. I'd argue it's not a weak conference to begin with and I'd hope schools value giving their student-athletes the maximum opportunities to participate while preaching sportsmanship and teaching the valuable life lessons participating in athletics provides as an enhancement to their educational experience. If schools value that and make that their focus, the two things you mentioned will take care of themselves. *edit/addition - and if Penn makes the conference stronger, why are you trying to pawn them off onto us!
  7. 3,373 reasons why everyone but MAYBE Warsaw would not be interested.
  8. Fairfield could be interesting as well, being a 3A football and basketball school (and play Goshen/NorthWood in football recently along with Wawasee, Goshen, NorthWood and Northridge in basketball consistently). I couldn't tell you one way or another their desire to be the smallest school in the NLC by over 300 students (Fairfield 565/NorthWood 883). Future reference for any posts concerned about newest NLC enrollment figures: 2,176 - Warsaw 1,866 - Goshen 1,716 - Concord 1,392 - Northridge 1,147 - Plymouth 945 - Wawasee 883 - NorthWood And for what it's worth, "Elkhart High School" is 3,321 if you take Central's 1,673 and add Memorial's 1,648.
  9. Now THIS is the type of off-season banter I like to see and have fun with! It's funny you ask these questions, because I was just thinking about it the other day when I was reading something regarding the SAC in Fort Wayne not fully accepting Carroll and Homestead in all sports (specifically the "country club" sports) because AD's/school administrators or school board members (can't remember off the top of my head) did not want the Chargers and Spartans to go off an win conference in those sports each and every season. So when I read that (and with Warsaw's previous sectional assignment including both of those schools for a number of years) I pondered two options for a 10 team NLC that included both Carroll and Homestead and then 1 other team. FIRST - there is the possibility Elkhart stays in the NLC. With the gate opportunities in the NLC compared to those in the NIC, and the ability to probably seriously compete in just about every sport in the NLC (not that they wouldn't in the NIC, but you obviously dodge the behemoth PENN). So let's say Elkhart stays in the NLC with the addition of Homestead and Carroll. All schools play each other in every sport except football. Football gets split into 2 divisions: BIG/SMALL Big - Carroll, Elkhart, Goshen, Homestead, Warsaw Small - Concord, Northridge, NorthWood, Plymouth, Wawasee In what would be a proposed scheduling nightmare in my case , I say each team plays all 4 of the teams in their division weeks 6-9, a rotating cycle of 3 teams from the other division weeks 3-5, and whatever the other teams want to schedule in weeks 1 & 2. SECOND - the NLC wants nothing to do with a megaschool Elkhart and show them the door. In my scenario of wanting a 10 team league, who does the NLC look to? In an effort to appeal to the smaller schools in the NLC with the additions of 6A/4A schools Carroll and Homestead, the NLC also brings back founding member and solid all around athletics program Bremen. Same as the first scenario, but the football divisions are split as follows: Big - Carroll, Concord, Goshen, Homestead, Warsaw Small - Bremen, Northridge, NorthWood, Plymouth, Wawasee
  10. The Warsaw Tigers men's track & field team fell 5 points shy of defending their regional title last night. One interesting thing that pertains to football is Tiger athlete Tristan Larsh. He finished 2nd in the 100 (10.99) and 200 (22.66) and was part of the winning 4x100 relay team. With he and fellow track speedster and Will McGarvey and a number of athletes from the track team, hopefully some of that speed will translate to the football field.
  11. The school board approved the hiring of new Warrior football head coach Michael Eshbach earlier this week. Coach Eshbach spent the last 9 years as the head coach at (1A) Eastside High School in Butler, IN, northeast of Fort Wayne. http://www.inkfreenews.com/2017/05/24/board-approves-hiring-of-new-warrior-football-coach/
  12. Update on the NLC All-Sports Trophy Standings. The girls title is unofficial, but I believe it is correct. The boys will be finalized this evening following the 9-hole NLC Golf Championship in Plymouth after rain Saturday postponed the event. Girls Final (unofficial): 113.5 - Warsaw (Track & Field, Cross Country champions) 112 - Northridge (Soccer, Swimming, Basketball champions) 107.5 - Concord (Volleyball champions) 67.5 - NorthWood (Golf champions) 66.5 - Plymouth (Tennis champions) 64 - Elkhart Memorial 61 - Wawasee (Softball champions) 56 - Goshen *The reason I say this is unofficial is because I am unsure how exactly the Girl's Tennis standings are determined. In the only article I read that actually listed scores, it had the team standings as: Plymouth 15.5, Concord 13.5, Warsaw 12.5, NorthWood 10.5, Elkhart Memorial 8, Wawasee 5, Northridge 5, Goshen 2. It is the only sport that I've seen with decimals, and I'm assuming it comes from a combination of regular season standings and NLC tournament results (I think golf does as well, since Northridge girls received 11 points from golf, even though they finished in 6th place [typically only 6 points] at the NLC girls golf tournament in the fall). Either way, the half point doesn't change anything among the top 3 schools, and the only effect on the standings is NorthWood and Plymouth girls would tie for 4th. Boys with only Golf left (5/22): 105 - Northridge (Wrestling, Swimming champions, Cross Country co-champions) 98 - Warsaw (Track & Field, Basketball champions, Cross Country co-champions) 97 - Goshen 91 - Concord (Soccer, Tennis champions) 78 - NorthWood (Baseball, Football champions) 73 - Plymouth 58 - Elkhart Memorial 48 - Wawasee *Northridge, Plymouth and Warsaw all tied at (6-1) in the NLC golf regular season standings. I'm assuming (based off what I've seen looking into girl's golf) that all three of those schools scored 7 points a piece for their regular season championship. I believe that means Warsaw can add a maximum of 15 points (7 regular season plus 8 for outright tournament win) and would put them at 113 points. Northridge already sits at 112 points with their 7 regular season points, and is guaranteed at least 1 point no matter where they finish tonight. The only chance there is a shared title on the boys side will be if Warsaw wins and Northridge finishes in last this evening. Otherwise (and extremely likely), it appears Northridge take the Boy's NLC All-Sports Title this year.
  13. You'd mix up when the matchups would occur though, and you'd basically have no regional round. Example if you combined 7 & 8, you're sectional bracket could look like: Avon @ Columbus North Southport @ Franklin Central Brownsburg @ Center Grove Perry Meridian @ Jeffersonville or whatever... basically, exactly like @DanteEstonia said, it makes all the 6A sectionals the same size as most of the other sectionals in classes 1A-4A and give more "parity" (might not be the exact word I'm looking for) to the 6A tournament.
  14. Northeast Corner Conference Big Division - Angola (4A), Fairfield (3A), Garrett (3A), Lakeland (3A), West Noble (3A) Small Division - Central Noble (2A), Churubusco (1A), Eastside (1A), Fremont (1A), Prairie Heights (2A)
  15. Done deal? Any idea when it'll be announced?
