  1. Drop in football participation

    I have coached 7th and 8th grade football for 8 years....I also have 3 varsity years prior to the last 8. Jr. High football is about fundamentals and learning how to play multiple offensive and defensive positions. We have no idea how these kid's bodies are going to change...we had a 9th grader one year come in at 5'2" 200lbs...a complete marshmallow/chunker....who could not bench 70 lbs. Well..as said before...puberty hit and this kid was 6' and 255 lbs by the time he was a junior. He ended up starting at offensive guard halfway through his Jr year and started whole senior year on the O-line. He maxed 320 on his bench his sr. Year....we don't even know in 9th grade how these guys will change. (That's also why I hate sports that cut players... but I get it... but some of those cut guys end up being studs after their body changes) We try to have or kids learn many positions so in the future they can fit into the one that matches their body... winning is fun, but so is learning football. Unfortunately, our numbers are way down in the high school level and lower than normal in Jr. High. We have also had undefeated Jr high teams be average in high school, and low winning Jr high teams be successful in high school... it 's all about having fun and keeping kids out for football. At FF, we are trying hard to do these things... hopefully our numbers will go up.

    Or maybe Ridge just deserves some credit.
  3. NLC 2017

    I'm just wondering when people on here will start to admit that Northridge ain't too bad. Just gonna go ahead an quote myself.
  4. NECC 2017

    Ridge > Wood

    Good job to the Angola Hornets so far. Sectional 19 is loaded...good luck on Friday. Hope all stay healthy.
  6. NLC 2017

    Here you go...maybe this will help you pass the time: (From Jokes4us.com) Q: What do you call a 350 pound Packer fan? A: An anorexic! Q: Why can't Matt Forte get into his own driveway? A: Someone painted an endzone on it Q: What do the Indianapolis Colts and possums have in common? A: Both play dead at home and get killed on the road! Q: What do you call 53 millionaires around a TV watching the Super Bowl? A: The Cleveland Browns. Q: How do you stop an Atlanta Falcons fan from beating his wife? A: Dress her in a Patriots Jersey! Q: What does a football player do when he loses his eyesight? A: Become a referee. (Sorry Yuccaguy and Bobref) Q: What does a Carolina Panthers fan do when his team has won the Super Bowl? A: He turns off the PlayStation 3. Q: Did you hear that the New York Giants football team doesn't have a website? A: They can't string three "Ws" together. Q: Where do you go in Chicago in case of a tornado? A: Soldier Field they never get a touchdown there! Q: Why doesn't Toledo have a professional football team? A: Because then Cleveland would want one.

    My picks minus the Fairfield game... Central Noble 28 Lakeland 21....the Cougars have a nice thing going. Eastside 56 PH 0.....PH needs to make some big adjustments. Fremont 0 Churubusco 63...there is a big difference between these two teams. West Noble 28 Garrett 13....Garrett comes back to reality. Fairfield....by the way....is REALLY banged up. This season might go down as "the plague".
  8. NLC 2017

    Geographically, doesn't Mishawaka make the most sense? (However, I don't see them wanting to travel so far for games, when most of who they play is not that long of a drive right now).
  9. NLC 2017

    Great point....I did forget about that. Hey...no biggy, you were just letting them feel better about themselves...and NW has done the same to FF EVERY year so far.
  10. NLC 2017

    Last year, Northwood put up big points on EVERYONE in the regular season and most of the post season....except Northridge....Wood won 14-0 last year. Northwood scored 43.4 ppg in 2016...and Ridge held them to 14. Coach W must have some insight on a way to stop the "shenanigans" of Coach A. I know this is a new year, but Northwood's offense is not as potent, and Northridge's defense is a little more stout. Same coaches...I'm assuming the same schemes are there as well. All "shenanigans" aside....I do think it might be close at first...but the Ridge ground game will be the difference. Northridge 28 Northwood 14

    It's cool if you want to be "that guy"...there's always one. Anyone can see I was talking about strength of schedule and not out-right rankings... Regardless of your nonsense, there is no question that Northridge has played a tougher schedule to this point.
  12. NLC 2017

    Enough said.
  13. NLC 2017

    Obviously you can't go by opponent records when determining strength of schedule. Northwood has played Jimtown, Goshen, Fairfield, Wawasee, and Concord. (Concord is the best team that Northwood has seen so far, and Wood lost) Also, remember that Concord only beat St. Joe 31-30...a team that Northridge beat the next week 27-10. Northridge has played Adams, St. Joe, Wawasee, Plymouth, and Warsaw...I would say that Plymouth is the best that Ridge has seen so far, with St. Joe (Concord equivalent) the second best, and Adams might be the 3rd best team they have played, though Adams is 0-5, they have had a brutal schedule 44th toughest in the state including Penn, Mishawaka, Notre Dame (IL), and Ridge, of course. There are 3, maybe 4 teams on Northwood 's schedule that aren't as good as the 2nd best team that Northridge has seen. Kind of a long way to make a short point. (Like when Hester used to return punts for the Bears... run 150 yards to go only 45 yards down field. )
  14. NLC 2017

    Angola is 5-0 Beat Dekalb 30-7 Beat Leo 41-35 (Leo's only losses are to Angola and New Haven by 2...Leo just spanked East Noble last night.) Beat Jimtown 31-14 (who is 3-2 and just beat Marian 7-0 last night) Beat West Noble 72-21(West Noble is 3-2 and beat Wawasee 31-14) Beat Lakeland 51-13 Aren't you also pretty Jr heavy? I agree with your comments about the conference, but I like their resume. Plus the Hornets are angry about losing 26-23 to Plymouth last year in the Sectional opener. Chip on the shoulder.
