  1. Mishawaka to NLC

    So if Bart takes advantage of his new found pool of talent, which is larger than Mishawaka's....and begins to run the NLC like Penn does the NIC, how fast will the other league members push Warsaw out. Seems like the NLC is ok with a big school as long as they can beat them. Will NW, Concord, Northridge and Plymouth be ok with not winning conference titles year in and year out? Mishawaka is already use to that situation so it shouldn't bother them too much....
  2. Mishawaka to NLC

    Mishwaka does not need the NIC, but Mishawaka having Penn on their schedule helps prepare them more for tourney play than Mishawaka helping Penn prepare for tourney play. The rivalry will live on, just need to see how Penn works out their nc games at that time. Maybe at that point Penn will have decided to go Independent and wont have to worry about working the Cavemen in.
  3. Mishawaka to NLC

    Agree 100%
  4. Mishawaka to NLC

    PENN will dominate any Northern Indiana conference they join.
  5. NIC 2018

    Clay is in recent years has been stuck in reverse. The program will not be competitive in the "small school" division, based on lack of competitiveness in games against current members of that division. It is unfortunate to see this because they used to have some good teams. I am excited to see what New Prairie has to offer in the "Big" School division. Interested to see the new look Cave folks in Mishawaka. Is the new coach going to run Bart's system, or are they going to a new o? I anticipate Marian being solid even with a new head coach.
  6. Cathedral and Penn

    I was at that game and it was phenomenal. Saginaw was very entertaining with their band and they traveled very well.
  7. 6A Football

    If Penn can stay healthy and find some more explosive receivers they will be very tough to beat. Penn has lacked any really speed on the wings of the O in recent seasons. As of right now 6A North goes through Mishawaka. Time will tell.
  8. They aren't taking anymore space then what is already there as a part of the stadium. This new building if anything will eat into that field to the south of the stadium which is where they practice. The biggest club sport that Penn has is rugby and there is a field over by the soccer grounds that they use to practice. LAX I think practices at a PHM elementary school field.
  9. A lot of the reason for this renovation or modernization of the football field is for safety of the athletic teams competing at Penn. Both teams have to cross the street multiple times to get to the stadium, this prevents the possibility of any chance of someone getting hit or hurt. Also, imagine the large squads of Ben Davis that had to use a hall way in a then 5A school. That is pretty sad for a 5A school to not have a locker room for a visiting team.
  10. Penn v Ben Davis 6A Title Game

    So, in short it prepared them for adversity in future competitions. Similar to how St. Joe performs in the NIC vs how they do in the state tourney against there class.
  11. I want to start of by congratulating both Avon and Carmel on great seasons, I believe that the Carmel came was much more competitive then the score says it was. Penn capitalized on mistakes and turned them into points. I am very excited that this state title game comes back down to two rivals. I remember after a tough loss down at Ben Davis my sophomore year the entire Ben Davis team and staff waited for us in the cafeteria and applauded us. They won by 14 points, but the respect that they showed made an impact. Love this rivalry very excited that it has come down to this. I look forward to seeing how good Ben Davis is and what Penn can do to win this game and bring their 6 title home. This will be the 4th time these two schools play for a title game, Ben Davis is 2-1 so far.
  12. Penn/Carmel

    Wasn't the 99 championship the year BD beat Penn like 24-3 or something. I prefer to party like it is 1996, if that is the case lol.
  13. Penn/Carmel

    Valpo in game 1 benefited from bad penalties and Lynch being hurt. Valpo's O not as explosive as Carmel and evenjoy though the score doesn't reflect it I thought Carmel played better on D then Valpo. I think Carmel beats Valpo head to head. But Valpo is a good football team.
  14. Top 32 Teams

    switch LaPorte and Mishawaka and I would agree with that.
  15. Top 32 Teams

    The question was the top 32 teams not the teams most likely to beat the MIC schools. You don't count Cathedral as one of the best 32 teams in the state?
