  1. I think the clear favorite in this sectional is whichever team gets lucky enough to get slotted in the opposite bracket of the other two. But, I'm sure 2 of the 3 teams will be playing each other in the opening round, with the winner facing the 3rd the next round. It seems like that's how it always works.
  2. How many youth league teams does ND have in each age group?
  3. That's unfortunate. Small schools can't afford to have kids specializing in a single sport. The exception would be a kid who has an opportunity to have his/her education paid for in a particular sport, I get that. I'm sure that's not the case for the majority of players. Does ND have a lot of college bound baseball players? I hope these kids aren't being influenced by the other coaches/administration.
  4. What happened to ND football?
  5. Ritter Raiders @ Linton Miners

    Will both teams enter the contest at 100%, or close to it? I know Gretlein is questionable, but are there any other injuries/issues?
  6. Ritter Raiders @ Linton Miners

    The track was open during the Monrovia game last year.
  7. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Rumor yesterday was that next year Oolitic and Shawswick will combine to form 1 middle school team. Step in the right direction.
  8. Ritter Raiders @ Linton Miners

    I'd bet money that Week 5 Ritter is a better team than Week 1 Southridge...Week 5 Southridge could be a different story. We'll let you know Friday night.
  9. Ritter Raiders @ Linton Miners

    Our LB's have to play lights out if we want a shot at winning this game. I think we can score points, but we can't aid their O by missing tackles.
  10. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    Agreed! Not consolidating the Jr. High teams is a disgrace. The administration is failing those kids. Without BOSS in the spring, the handful of kids who attend St. Vincent would go 2 years without playing football, and the Shawswick kids would only know how to run the wishbone. Weber has an uphill battle, and he's finally making some headway. As for the game, there will be a bigger crowd there. Like you said, the weather's going to be perfect, and the youth league players are getting introduced at halftime. In the short span I've followed NA, last 5 years, they've never impressed me. The potential was there, it just wasn't utilized to the fullest extent. I think this game will be a battle as well, with a BNL win by 11-12 points.
  11. Hoosier Hills Conference 2017

    The difference I've seen this year for BNL versus that past 4 years under Weber, these kids don't give up. They're tough kids who seem to be finally buying into what he is selling. If they can continue to win, maybe they can garner more support from the administration and community.
  12. 1 sack registered....and how many times have we hit the QB, or the RB for that matter, in the backfield and not brought him down? Even in the Monrovia game, that happened 3 or 4 times. I think the pressure's there, we just can't finish the job. And I'll give credit to those QB's/RB's, except the Sullivan guys ;), they've been tough athletes.
  13. That's exactly how I look at it Tut. This team is improving. Keaton looked more comfortable as each game progressed. The backs looked like they trusted their linemen more, and look more confident with their assignments/responsibilities. I still saw more missed tackles in the Monrovia game than what historically we're accustomed to, but there were a lot less than the previous two weeks. For a young team, "improvement" is the most important. As for this game, much like the first 3 games, I don't know what to expect. I'd like to say it's a 3 score W, but this is a young team who hasn't had enough time to establish an identity yet. I'm fairly certain they won't overlook NV, and I guess I don't understand why they would. NV has won every game the way the were supposed to, correct? I haven't seen them on film or in person yet this year, but they're well coached, and I'm assuming, still disciplined...I just don't know what to expect.
