  1. Too bad you can't make "football only" conferences, and go back to your normal conference for everything else. Football is probably the only sport where enrollment size can really effect your competitiveness. Smaller schools, at times, can compete in basketball, baseball, and track with the bigger schools. Unless you are like Jimtown in football and can get 100 guys out for your team, it's hard for a small school to compete in football with the giants. Fairfield does not have swimming, soccer, or gymnastics....any of those additions would take participation away from the current sports offered. We just need more student athletes.
  2. I enjoy this as well. Thanks for taking the time to do this.
  3. I come from tiny little Fairfield, where there are about 60 to 70 boys in each grade and we struggle sometimes to get a lot of them to play football. A class of 20 seniors is BIG for us....so this is why I am posting these facts: Warsaw High School's enrollment is listed at 2114 students(25th largest in our state and a 6A football school)....about 500 students per grade. Assuming around half are boys, there could be potential for a lot of sporting candidates. Let's say about 35 of those 250 boys are interested in playing football. (I really don't know what the football numbers are like at Warsaw). 35 guys per grade for only 22 positions (offense and defense). You could really have some battles for the starting spots. Elkhart Memorial and Goshen would be the next two largest schools at around 1,800 students each...then Concord at 1600 students...all 5A schools. (that gap from 2,100 to 1,800 and 1,600 is the main reason that Indiana made a class 6A, I know Warsaw is one of the smaller 6A schools, but 500 students per grade is a HUGE school). Northridge - 1300 Plymouth - 1100 Wawasee - 962 Northwood - 841 All of this to say that at our tiny little school, when numbers are up, we have really competitive teams. At a school like Warsaw, the numbers "should" be up every single year. The sheer numbers alone should be reason enough for Warsaw to be near or at the top of the NLC football championship every year. I obviously don't know how the program operates, but number do not lie. Warsaw football should be the king of the NLC. In the last 10 years, Warsaw has only had 5 season above .500. They also haven't won more than 7 games in any given season within the last 10 years. I know Warsaw has always been the "basketball school", but why haven't they done better on the gridiron? So...as an outsider looking in (and I have tons of respect for Warsaw and the NLC), to say Warsaw "underwhelmed" is an accurate statement. They have "underwhelmed" for a decade. Only my opinion. Fairfield had a class two years ago where there were only 5 seniors. (It's tough to get these guys out and keep them out.....it's seeming like a trend for high school athletes to stop playing sports...I think this is across the state in every sport...not just football)
  4. Definitely late, but congrats to Garrett on their 12-2 season and LONG playoff run. One win away from state.

  7. Maybe it's time for Fremont to consolidate.
  8. That is crazy.
  9. Last week of the regular season! What are your thoughts and predictions this week? Central Noble (2-6) at Garrett (7-1) Eastside (6-2) at Angola (6-2) Fremont (2-6) at Lakeland (4-4) Fairfield (1-7) at Churubusco (6-2) West Noble (2-6) at Prairie Heights (0-7)
  10. Rooting for Northwood, but I think Warsaw might have the edge....I am basing this off of a game by game basis...which is really not a great way to look at things. I feel like the performances from these two teams vs. Northridge tells us a lot. From what I heard, Ridge gave Wood everything they could handle, it doesn't look like Warsaw struggled that much against Northridge...however looks (or scores in this case) can be deceiving. Good luck to both teams...though my heart is at Fairfield, I pay very close attention to the NLC. Obviously, if starters are missing, this will greatly impact the outcome of this game.
  11. Week 8 Concord at Northridge Plymouth at Goshen Warsaw at NorthWood Wawasee at Elkhart Memorial Culver Academy at South Bend St. Joe Jimtown at Bremen Mishawaka Marian at Mishawaka New Prairie at John Glenn Penn at Elkhart Central South Bend Riley at South Bend Clay South Bend Washington at South Bend Adams Chesterton at Crown Point Lake Central at Merrillville LaPorte at Michigan City Portage at Valparaiso Culver at Pioneer Frontier at West Central Knox at Triton North Judson at LaVille Winamac at Caston Lakeland at Fairfield Hanover Central at South Central (Union Mills)
  12. It's already week 8...what are your thoughts and predictions about this week's matchups? Angola (6-1) at Garrett (6-1) Churubusco (5-2) at West Noble (2-5) Eastside (5-2) at Central Noble (2-5) Lakeland (3-4) at Fairfield (1-6) Prairie heights (0-7) at Fremont (1-6)
  13. My picks minus the FF game: Angola BIG PH 0.....Angola has things going in the right direction.... Churubusco 21 Central Noble 20.....close game....CN misses an extra point. Eastside 42 Fremont 21....I have seen neither of these teams this year, Lakeland 28 West Noble 27....another missed extra point in Noble County...Lakers by one.
