    SF was remembering the same set of circumstances from back then before the game, but didn't want to post anything and jinx the team. My initial thought after the game was "is the NLC talent just that poor this year, or is CMA just that tough"? Truth be told the CMA football team is a stout team and early mistakes, followed by the Raiders inability to unbury themselves proved to be their demise. BUT - great regular season, and hopefully the NR team will continue their growth into an NLC powerhouse.

    In football......NR has dominated in a few sports and been very competitive in many for a long time. Even winning the all-sports title a few times. Will be easier to get that title with the football program contributing like it is now.

    Well congrats to the Raiders!! Does ole SF's heart good to see them bringing the game they have had in them out. There is a very good chance they will claim the NLC football title outright this Friday night and remain undefeated. Awesome season gang. SF is headed back to the depths......
  4. NLC 2017

    Very interesting game in Dunlap coming on Friday. GOTY for the NLC. It can be said that either team could finish the regular season undefeated by winning this game. Sagarin has Concord pulling off a close one by one TD. SF doesn't want to predict anything since I haven't seen Concord play this season but I hear from multiple sources their size on both of the lines is impressive compared to Northridge, and I know they always seem to be strong clutch players. NR is certainly solid and while not error-free, seem to be disciplined and not prone to losing their cool in adverse situations. Sooooo - We will see........ Best year so far in the HISTORY of NR football, so it is exciting to say the least to see the boys doing so well. Go get em Raiders!! Best of luck to both teams for a great game - Play hard and stay safe.

    It's refreshing for SF to finally (after all these years on the GID since 2005 and the Kirkton years) be able to say with conviction that the NLC game of the season will be coming down to NR and Concord meeting in 2 weeks. Well deserved recognition to the Raiders.
  6. NLC 2017

    Perfect example of Hyperbole.......In case anyone was wondering...... Northridge @ Plymouth: Game of the week - will tell a lot about both teams for this season and how well they react. Wawasee @ Concord: Concord should roll. Warsaw @ Memorial: Toss-up of the week. Tigers should win, but both teams are typical shaky. Goshen @ Northwood: Northwood should roll, just need to shake off last week.
  7. NLC 2017

    SF's NLC Week 3 Picks - Elkhart Memorial, Northwood (SF's pick for GOTW), Plymouth, Northridge. (IMHO) BTW - Heard there were 3 TD's called back at the NW/Fairfield game on NW, so the score could have been worse......
  8. NLC 2017

    2nd week of the season - way too soon to make viable predictions based on anything but hyperbole (which SF usually has plenty of). Really looking forward to seeing the box scores tonight before real conference play gets underway next week. BTW - Sagarin has Northwood ranked 14th in the entire State if you want to believe in hyperbole.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/tag/_/name/jason-spriggs Indiana's Jason Spriggs growing into one of B1G's top left tacklesJason Spriggs never got a chance to ease into his college career. Indiana opened the 2012 season with Spriggs as its starting left tackle. Never mind that the true freshmen weighed a listed 268 pounds and had played tight end the year before in high school. Welcome to the show, kid. Five weeks into that season, the Hoosiers played Michigan State and Ohio State in back-to-back weeks. Spriggs' assignment was to contain the Spartans' William Gholston and the Buckeyes' John Simon, both of whom would go in the fourth round of the NFL draft the following spring. "To go and do that as an 18-year-old, and to have some success, that was pretty impressive," Indiana offensive line coach Greg Frey said. Spriggs not only survived that baptism by fire, he more than proved himself in the process. And now, entering his senior season with the Hoosiers, he's one of the most experienced and dependable offensive linemen in the Big Ten. He has started 34 out of a possible 35 games at left tackle during his career, and he's now listed at a sturdier 305 pounds on his 6-foot-7 frame. Asked how far he's come since those freshman days, Spriggs says simply, "leaps and bounds." According to Indiana, Spriggs allowed just two sacks in 689 snaps in 2014. The team's normally potent passing game fell off a cliff after quarterback Nate Sudfeld's midseason shoulder injury, but Spriggs and the offensive line helped pave the way for Tevin Coleman's school-record 2,036-yard campaign. "In hindsight for Jason, it's going to be a blessing," Frey said of the run-heavy attack. "His strong suit was always pass protection, and we had to take him and say, 'OK, let's get you into run blocking.' So this spring, what you're seeing from him is a little bit lower pad level and more confidence. It's been fun to watch." Coleman eventually earned national accolades for his performance last year, but few people outside of Bloomington noticed the job that the IU offensive line -- which has been one of the Big Ten's most underrated units for a while now -- did in opening some daylight. Spriggs doesn't mind. "Tevin gave us our due, and it's nothing that we expect," he said. "We don't really look for recognition." The Elkhart, Indiana native didn't draw major recognition on the recruiting trail. Most of his offers came from MAC schools, though he said Penn State showed some interest before he committed to Indiana the summer before his senior year. Frey and the Hoosiers prefer lean, athletic linemen who can keep pace in their no-huddle spread offense, and they saw in Spriggs who excelled in basketball, lacrosse and track and field as well as football. That athleticism hasn't gone away as Spriggs has gotten bigger and stronger. Check out these workout numbers that head coach Kevin Wilson tweeted out last week: Frey said Spriggs compares favorably to former Michigan All-America left tackle Taylor Lewan, whom Frey coached early in Lewan's career. Last year alone, Spriggs squared off with such pass-rushing behemoths as Missouri's Shane Ray, Ohio State's Joey Bosa and Michigan State's Shilique Calhoun. And he continued to stand his ground against the best the opposition had to offer. "He's been able to hold down that position and do some really nice things here," Frey said. "And I still think there's a lot ahead of him as he matures. He's still got some development left, so that's the encouraging part." Spriggs is excited to have Sudfeld back at quarterback and for the Hoosiers to rev up their passing game once more. He and guard Dan Feeney -- who also started as a true freshman back in 2012 -- are leading an offensive line that is working in a couple of redshirt freshmen (Tim Gardner and Wes Martin) into the mix this spring. Another solid season could make Spriggs an intriguing NFL prospect. But he's more interested right now in helping get Indiana to a bowl game for the first time in his four years. "I'm on bettering myself as much as I can, tying off my career here and getting as far as we can this season," he said. He's already come a long way himself. Congratulations to Spriggs - Great representation of the NLC at this level.

    SF wishes all the best for Coach Dawson and his family.
  14. 28 - 10 NP. Congratulations on a great run this season Raiders.
  15. SF estate has a dusting - guessing the field will be snow-free. SF recomends a butt-pad though, those aluminum bleachers historically aren't known to be warm.......SF still has 2 of the old Heritage Knights pads at home and can endorse them as able to keep the grill-marks from the frozen bleachers off the bum.....
