  1. NLC - 2018

    A quick 50 minutes later, first half is over, and the Tigers lead 10-0 in a first half played completely in rain. I believe each team has had two fumbles a piece and a number of penalties. Definitely a work in progress on offense, but the Warsaw defense is stuffing Columbus City every play.
  2. NLC - 2018

    Also as a side note I saw the Warsaw freshman team beat Concord 22-6 last night. I know the NLC is down some frosh teams this year but were there any other scores to report from last night?
  3. NLC - 2018

    Hopefully I can provide some more color in the coming weeks, but work has been brutal the last few months. Here are my picks for Week 1: St. Joe at Concord - St. Joe by 8 Elk Central at Elk Memorial - Elkhart Central by 17 Fairfield at Goshen - Goshen by 28 Adams at Northridge - Northridge by 6 Northwood at Jimtown - Jimtown by 2 Plymouth at East Noble - East Noble by 7 Warsaw at Columbia City - Warsaw by 24 Wawasee at Lakeland - Wawasee by 4
  4. NLC - 2018

    Interested in who you would suggest. I've thought about this for a number of years, however, Columbia City has been on the Tigers schedule for the last 21 years. Even though it's obviously been lopsided in Warsaw's favor (they lead the series 17-4), it's made for a nice opener and been easy for travel purposes. Plus Warsaw competes against Columbia City in a number of other athletic seasons. I would love it if they could snag a Fort Wayne team, but the SAC schools are taken due to their 10 team league and no non-conference schedule. Other Northeast 8 schools Huntington North (for size as a 5A school) and Leo/New Haven (4A, but more competitive than Huntington North or Columbia City) could be options. The other options would be making the trek to The Region and schools from the DAC, NCC or New Prairie.

    My mistake. I edited my original statement to accurately reflect what I was trying to say. Thanks!
  6. NLC - 2018

    Complete and utter guess into how the season goes: 1. Northridge - May have lost some, but should still be really good on defense and their QB has plenty of experience. Arguably the best coaching staff in the conference. 2. Warsaw - A bit of a homer pick, but belief in Coach Curtis as well as the fact that this offense is not one teams in the NLC have had to deal with much in recent years. If the Tigers grasp it well, it could help them surprise teams and overshoot expectations. 3. Concord - A bit of a step down for the Minutemen this year after an excellent 2017 season. But they're Concord and have been in the mix for the NLC crown for well over a decade season in and season out. 4. NorthWood - Another team that will take a step down post Trey Bilinski and Co. They've still got plenty of kids who have seen the groundwork set before them to be the successful program we all know and love from Nappanee. Can they sustain it? 5. Plymouth - @always a rockie might disagree with me here and that's okay :P as he said, they lost 14 starters from last year, and that team went 3-4 down the stretch after starting 3-0 last season. 6. Goshen - The RedHawks might have taken a step back last year, but they were better than their 2-9 record indicated. They were competitive in losses to Elkhart Central, NorthWood, Northridge and Concord (sectional). Will be a tough out this season. Could see them win 3 conference games. 7. Wawasee - Team should improve from last season where the injury bug bit the Warriors hard. It doesn't help that they don't play Memorial and Goshen until the final 2 games of the regular season. Makes for a brutal start to the conference slate. 8. Elkhart Memorial - Not much to say here. Crimson Chargers are on an 18 game NLC losing streak dating back to a 42-33 win over Warsaw in 2015. They've only won 5 conference games in the last 6 seasons. Can't imagine they'll pick many more up before their merger with Central and move to the NIC. In all honesty, this is a year I wouldn't be surprised if we had 2 or 3 teams share the title with a 5-2 record and a slew of others at 4-3/3-4 in the conference. The only one I have trouble seeing with multiple conference wins this year would be Memorial. After that, who knows what could happen.
  7. NLC - 2018

    Any news on how the teams looked in their scrimmages last night? Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it to the Warsaw scrimmage last night so I don’t have any input there. Where are all my fellow NLCers???
  8. @WCGrad92 I’d love to do 4A, 5A and 6A again this year! Sorry it’s a late add
  9. Anyone willing to add/attach high schools and positions to these players?
  10. Football-Basketball Win Percentage

    Very cool! Nice work! I'm sure it would be hell, but it'd be neat to see like a 4 year rolling average, especially for some of those smaller schools that have stud classes of athletes rolling through.
  11. True. Very good point on football scheduling, but the NLC was 7 members from when Bremen left in 1988 until Memorial joined in 2001.
  12. My first preference is that the NLC just stays at 7. Having said that, if they did add an 8th, I believe Mishawaka and East Noble would make excellent additions in raising the the competitive profile across all athletics in the conference. New Prairie would be a good fit, but the distance (and time zone difference) are hurdles that Mishawaka and East Noble do not have to overcome. Not just speaking from "Warsaw-tinted" glasses, but I personally see little to no reason to seriously consider Jimtown or Bremen. I've discussed that in other threads previously, but considering Jimtown is around a quarter smaller than the current smallest school in the conference... I understand football wise Jimtown could and would be competitive. But in boy's basketball, they've gone 2-22 against NLC squads (NorthWood, Concord, Goshen, Northridge and Plymouth) over the last 6 or 7 years. Girl's basketball has been trending down the last 6 seasons following a decent run in the mid to late 2000s and haven't necessarily been historically successful. The only other thing that historically (outside of football) that comes to mind with Jimtown sports is wrestling.
  13. One last challenge? I have zero idea why Coach Curtis made the decision, but I'm glad he did! I believe coaches, by nature, like the idea of going somewhere and rebuilding a program. Sure, it'd be great to step into a place that already has things moving along, but I'd have to say most coaches (if not ALL) are highly competitive people. Maybe there was just something about the opportunity to go to a 6A program in a great community with great facilities (Warsaw is making some athletics additions to their building soon) and elevating a program to the level that many (my friend @DrivenT being one) believe they should be; at the top of the NLC and being competitive and winning in the 6A tournament. One huge plus to Coach Curtis, he's beaten Penn, something Warsaw has never done.
  14. Has Hell froze over?

    I don't think the NLC competitiveness is the reason behind Warsaw's lack of gridiron success IMO. Schools like Concord, Goshen, Plymouth and NorthWood have been extremely successful at various times over the last 30 years. Are they smaller than Warsaw? Yes. Is that the reason Warsaw hasn't done well in the IHSAA football tournament? No.
  15. Has Hell froze over?

    My point was that the NLC is and has been plenty competitive throughout the years. The NIC, not so much. Hopefully, that will continue to change and in a positive direction with the additions and changes that have occurred. Very good point about Center Grove being an excellent role model school for Warsaw to look to. The success of their program really revolves around the hiring of an amazing coach (only 1 sectional and regional title before Coach Moore took the helm). However, it does help them that they have a number of 6A/5A schools within their geographic footprint (maximum of 45 minutes to Carmel). You can't fault Warsaw for where they are located geographically. Sure, they could join the SAC like you enjoy spouting... but that means 50-65 minutes of commuting one way. And you have to take into account the SAC is already at 10 members. Hopefully you'll be impressed with who the new Tiger coach is. Not in the news breaking business.
