I believe they are in the central time zone just barely but i'm not positive.

Obviously they have been in conferences with teams from EST, but is that a scheduling headache or no?

I imagine it is somewhat of a headache, whether or not that would be significant enough of an issue to keep them out of the NLC i'm not sure, i'd doubt it but who knows.

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.

It is NOT New Prairie. Like I said, I was surprised when I heard the school, but they make a lot of sense in terms of size, location, & make-up. Again rumor, but supposedly this long standing NIC member will be interested if they are pursued/invited.

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

Mishawaka? Really.....trying to get out the shadow of their rival.  I could see that working.  Where does that leave Penn?  Very intriguing.

Assuming they would still play Penn in one of their two non-league games. Coach Curtis prefers to play against those type of schools in the non-conference.

The more you think about it, they really are very similar across the board to most NLC schools.

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.

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.

When the remaining NSC schools invited Wawasee to join a new conference I am told the answer was a resounding no and one of the arguments was that New Prairie was too far away. Mishawaka would be an attractive addition being a 4A enrollment school and realtively easy travel. If Penn would be an option, then why give Elkhart the boot? Including either St. Joe or Marian is not all that attractive in my opinion. South Bend - we played Washington in football last year and the 10 fans they brought were spirited. I am not sure Fairfield would want to leave the NECC, but they do not have all the sports. A couple of teams that might be attractive to add are both 4A and are pretty good in many sports are East Noble (20 miles from Wawasee - same distance to Northridge for Wawasee) and Columbia City.

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.

The only issue back in the days after Bremen left, before Memorial joined is to find an opponent in your "Bye Week".  I remember Northridge traveling to East Chicago Central once.  Another year we had a true "Bye Week" with no game - that was miserable.  In the NECC before Garrett came back each team had a Bye Week and I remember some people having to go to the Thumb of Michigan.
