      Corrupt files   07/26/2017

      The server files for the forum were lost early in the morning 26,July 2017.   I restored the forum but using a fresh install of the forum software but we lost all of the images stored on the server. The way I see it... no big deal as it gives us a fresh start.   Over the next couple days I will restore the images I have saved for the forum. but I do not have everyone personal image. You can easily restore that yourself. Any pictures shared in a post that were stored here are also gone... again a fresh start of no clutter.    I just wanted to let you know what was going on. This will display until 1, Sept 2017.

  1. NLC 2017

    It'd be nice for a compiled list of all the conference affiliated radio stations...
  2. Loved this article by one of Michiana's best and the voice of Warsaw Tiger Athletics, Roger Grossman.
  3. SAC Week One

    Anyone find it interesting that the Pigskin Prophet picked Wayne over Dwenger this week???
  4. 2017-2018 Donation Drive

    Will be making my donation once payday hits next week! lol
  5. NLC 2017

    somebody needs to pinch me... Warsaw received 2 points in the AP's Preseason Class 6A Poll... I'm in tears I'm laughing so hard In fact, every NLC school received at least a vote in their respective polls except Elkhart Memorial and Wawasee
  6. NIC 2017 - What lies ahead

    That wouldn't necessarily surprise me. Should be a good game!
  7. NLC 2017

    Thank you! Impressive only in the amount of time it took! We'll see how my predictions play out this weekend, but I can tell you what, I can't wait until I only have to put together 4 game previews! LOL
  8. NIC 2017 - What lies ahead

    In an effort to interact with more GID users, I've copied my NLC predictions for this week of the four NIC-NLC matchups. If I'm not welcomed here, I'll go back to the better thread #9 (5A) Concord (0-0) @ South Bend St. Joseph (0-0): In the third year of this season opening series, the Minutemen visit one of my favorite Michiana high school venues Father Bly Field to take on the Indians. Last year Concord crushed SBSJ 43-18. The Indians went 2-8 last year, their worst season since 1978, after winning a regional championship in 2015. They were bitten by the injury bug and played a number of underclassmen and bring back 12 starters. However, while I expect this game to be more competitive than last season, the Minutemen are bringing back 8 starters on offense and 4 on their offensive line alone. They say you win the game in the trenches... CONCORD by 17 Elkhart Memorial (0-0) @ Elkhart Central (0-0): In what appears to be one of only a few tilts left in the "Battle for the Mangy Lion", the Crimson Chargers and Blue Blazers are looking to start their respective seasons on a high note after both finished last season with 2-8 records. Unfortunately, it appears as though Memorial is trending down while Central is trending up ahead of their looming consolidation in a few years. Memorial's numbers are low, while the Blue Blazers have a new boss in charge (Josh Shattuck who took Seymour from 0-10, 2-8, 5-7 to 8-4 last season) and 21 seniors on the roster. While the Crimson Chargers might have won last seasons matchup, I don't expect them to win ever again in this series... ELKHART CENTRAL by 13 Jimtown (0-0) @ #1 (4A) NorthWood (0-0): Always a fun battle to start the season, the defending 4A North and NLC champion Panthers look to make it an astounding 5 in a row over their rival Jimmies. Jimtown leads the season opening series 11-9 over the last 20 years, but seem to be trending down while the boys from Nappanee continue to climb under Coach Nate Andrews. The Jimmies appear to be low on numbers after already losing quite a bit of production from last season. Even with a new QB under center for the Panthers and a number of new names and faces thrown in, I don't expect them to lose their season opener at home following their successful 2016 campaign... NORTHWOOD by 22 Northridge (0-0) @ South Bend Adams (0-0): This could be one of the more interesting games of opening week in my opinion. The Raiders are looking to rebound from their 3-8 season last year after going 25-10 the first 3 years under Coach Tom Wogoman. They will face a great test in the South Bend Adams Eagles on the road to start things off. Adams is looking to finish with a winning record for three straight seasons for the first time since the 1970's. The Raiders and Eagles have split this season opening series 3-3 over the last 6 years (not counting the forfeit Northridge received). Hopefully Northridge's defense has improved back to where it was a few years ago as Adams appears to bring a high scoring attack to this matchup. Unfortunately for the Raiders, I think I'll give the Eagles the close nod being at home... SOUTH BEND ADAMS by 6
  9. NLC 2017

    Well everyone... it's Week 1 and I suppose I'll give it another hack at making some weekly predictions for the NLC games. Last year, I went 31-13 in my regular season guestimates, so let's see how this year goes. Overall, should be a very competitive season in the NLC with Concord, Goshen, Plymouth and NorthWood battling it out among the top, Northridge and Warsaw being darkhorse teams, and Elkhart Memorial and Wawasee trying to get out of the cellar. #9 (5A) Concord (0-0) @ South Bend St. Joseph (0-0): In the third year of this season opening series, the Minutemen visit one of my favorite Michiana high school venues Father Bly Field to take on the Indians. Last year Concord crushed SBSJ 43-18. The Indians went 2-8 last year, their worst season since 1978, after winning a regional championship in 2015. They were bitten by the injury bug and played a number of underclassmen and bring back 12 starters. However, while I expect this game to be more competitive than last season, the Minutemen are bringing back 8 starters on offense and 4 on their offensive line alone. They say you win the game in the trenches... CONCORD by 17 Elkhart Memorial (0-0) @ Elkhart Central (0-0): In what appears to be one of only a few tilts left in the "Battle for the Mangy Lion", the Crimson Chargers and Blue Blazers are looking to start their respective seasons on a high note after both finished last season with 2-8 records. Unfortunately, it appears as though Memorial is trending down while Central is trending up ahead of their looming consolidation in a few years. Memorial's numbers are low, while the Blue Blazers have a new boss in charge (Josh Shattuck who took Seymour from 0-10, 2-8, 5-7 to 8-4 last season) and 21 seniors on the roster. While the Crimson Chargers might have won last seasons matchup, I don't expect them to win ever again in this series... ELKHART CENTRAL by 13 Goshen (0-0) @ Fairfield (0-0): After winning their first sectional game since 2011 and finishing second in the conference (8-3. 5-2 NLC), Coach Kyle Park and the Redsk... err... Redhawks appear to be flying high. Goshen is one of many NLC teams replacing their starting QB this season, and according to WNDU, that position is going to be filled by sophomore Dominic Sosa. Fairfield (usually a highly competitive squad under Coach Bob Miller) is coming of a down year of 1-9. It's been fun to see this backyard brawl occur recently, but much like the Plymouth-Bremen matchup, I expect "big brother" to continue to dominate the series... GOSHEN by 21 Jimtown (0-0) @ #1 (4A) NorthWood (0-0): Always a fun battle to start the season, the defending 4A North and NLC champion Panthers look to make it an astounding 5 in a row over their rival Jimmies. Jimtown leads the season opening series 11-9 over the last 20 years, but seem to be trending down while the boys from Nappanee continue to climb under Coach Nate Andrews. The Jimmies appear to be low on numbers after already losing quite a bit of production from last season. Even with a new QB under center for the Panthers and a number of new names and faces thrown in, I don't expect them to lose their season opener at home following their successful 2016 campaign... NORTHWOOD by 22 Northridge (0-0) @ South Bend Adams (0-0): This could be one of the more interesting games of opening week in my opinion. The Raiders are looking to rebound from their 3-8 season last year after going 25-10 the first 3 years under Coach Tom Wogoman. They will face a great test in the South Bend Adams Eagles on the road to start things off. Adams is looking to finish with a winning record for three straight seasons for the first time since the 1970's. The Raiders and Eagles have split this season opening series 3-3 over the last 6 years (not counting the forfeit Northridge received). Hopefully Northridge's defense has improved back to where it was a few years ago as Adams appears to bring a high scoring attack to this matchup. Unfortunately for the Raiders, I think I'll give the Eagles the close nod being at home... SOUTH BEND ADAMS by 6 #8 (4A) East Noble (0-0) @ #14 (4A) Plymouth (0-0): The new turf at the Rockpile will host the best matchup featuring an NLC team in week 1 as the Rockies welcome the Knights in a MUCH NEEDED UPGRADE to Plymouth's non-conference schedule (I know, I know, Bremen is a historic rival... but that series record over the last 20 years is 18-2 in favor of Plymouth). This will be a great non-conference series for these sectional foes. I know my Tigers have faced some stiff competition since they started their series with East Noble, and I imagine the Rockies and Knights will both benefit from this match-up come tournament time. Both teams are ranked in the preseason IFCA Coaches' Class 4A Poll, and while I expect both teams to be in/near the top 10 at the end of the season, it'll take Plymouth a few weeks to get into their groove. If these teams meet in the sectional, the outcome could be different by then, but... EAST NOBLE by 10 Columbia City (0-0) @ Warsaw (0-0): Speaking of lopsided season opening series, Warsaw has won 16 of 20 versus their US 30 foe Columbia City while outscoring the Eagles 57-10 over the last two years. Granted, the Tigers will be looking to replace a plethora of talent on both sides of the ball this season and will more likely than not turn to the run more often this season over their passing attack of the last two years. I don't expect Warsaw will be a ground and pound team like the Coach Jensen teams of yore, but hopefully they find a way to utilize their speed in a spread rushing attack. Hopefully this game will allow some of the first-year/less experience starters to settle into their roles and get some quality playing reps under their belts before the back-to-back matchups of East Noble and Plymouth follow... WARSAW by 20 Lakeland (0-0) @ Wawasee (0-0): The Lakers (who have no lake in the town of their high school) make their trip to the shores of Lake Wawasee to visit the Warriors and their new boss Coach Mike Eshbach on their new turf field. Lakeland is a 3A school with a schedule featuring 4 schools from 1A and 2A and seemed to have regressed in recent years after going 56-27 from 2006-2013 (with ZERO postseason accomplishments) to 12-18 over the past 3 seasons. Wawasee is squarely in rebuilding mode, but Coach Eshbach did a good job in making Eastside competitive in the Northeast Corner Conference. With emotions running high from a new head coach and new turf field, I'll give the slight edge to the Warriors... WAWASEE by 4 Well folks there you have my predictions for Week 1... we'll see how they go considering I haven't seen much of ANYTHING from any of these squads! For future reference: Concord by 17, Elkhart Central by 13, Goshen by 21, NorthWood by 22, South Bend Adams by 6, East Noble by 10, Warsaw by 20, Wawasee by 4
  10. NLC 2017

    I guess we'll find out this Friday night, but it was good to see they have about 74 players on the 10-12 roster and another 41 on the freshman roster this year for a total of 115 players. It's possible he just meant that there are about 25 on both sides of the ball still battling it out for positions? Here's an article I found: http://www.inkfreenews.com/2017/08/14/warsaw-football-tigers-look-to-hit-the-ground-running/
  11. Who received the other 4 first place votes in class 4A?
  12. IT'S SCRIMMAGE TIME!

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong... but Shenandoah has been 2A for awhile (lost to Heritage Christian in 2008 sectionals, who won 2A state championship that year), and won 2A sectional titles in 2012 and 2014.
  13. NLC 2017

    That's funny because I've never really considered us to be of the Fort Wayne area team (outside of the football sectionals occasionally putting us over that direction). News wise, for years we got WNDU (NBC), WSJV (Fox) and WSBT (CBS) all from South Bend (our house watched mostly WNDU and occasionally Fox 28). The only Fort Wayne station we got was ABC 21 for awhile, but even then I think I remember watching ABC 57 from South Bend. Because of that TV/news market (and being a member in the NLC) I guess that's why I've always considered Warsaw in the "Michiana" region team more so than a Fort Wayne area team.
  14. NLC 2017

    Interesting that all NLC teams besides Warsaw and Wawasee had a WNDU feature...
