  1. NLC 2016

    I would say that right now, this is a safe bet. All three, though, have to replace a ton of offensive players who put up big numbers ... Concord might have the most offensive skilled people back, but they've got to hone a QB. NW has Bilinski and Bronson Yoder, who is going to be their featured weapon, IMO. Northridge with Hooley back, there are people they can put around him next year. Raiders will be better offensively. Snow melts, let me collect some softball checks. Let's kickoff. Bill B.

    Goshen entered the NLC in '77 as Manchester dropped out to join the Three Rivers Conference. Bill B.
  3. NLC 2016

    After Rochester dropped out in 86, Northridge joined in 87 to make 8. Then Bremen left after '89 to go back to 7. Memorial joined in 2000-01, so NLC went 11 seasons with only 7 schools. Bill B.
  4. NLC 2016

    No timetable formally set. But athletically, NIC is a lock. The start of the 2017-'18 school year wouldn't leave much time. Bill B.
  5. NLC 2016

    For the record, and I'm sure your source believes what he/she told you, but I have it on sound authority that when Elkhart goes to one school, it will remain in the NIC. Not even a question about this. Bill B.
  6. NLC 2016

    Honestly, this would really surprise me. Not saying it can't or won't happen this way, but I would be more than a bit surprised. Bill B.
  7. NLC 2016

    There would be no new building needed. A proposal being considered would be to put 10-12 at Elkhart Memorial, which is next to the Elkhart Area Career Center, an advanced educational/trades building. Elkhart Central would hold freshman for now, with the possibility of housing 7th and 8th graders. I could see 1 of the 3 middle schools closing completely or being used as a future academy program. Of the two high schools, Memorial has much more room to expand in years to come. Again, things being considered, but far from a final blueprint. Bill B.
  8. NLC 2016

    The movement is true and will eventually happen. If I had to hazard a guess, "Elkhart" would remain as part of the NIC and the NLC would have to go with seven schools until an eighth can be considered and placed. No hard information whatsoever, but i cannot imagine the NLC voting to keep a school of 3,600 students. My two cents. Bill B
  9. Kyle Shaw told me this week he wouldn't be leaving Mishawaka. He's the head track & field coach there, it's what he did in college. Football assisting with the Cavemen, but unless things really change drastically, he won't be joining dad in Elkhart.

  10. Elkhart Memorial HFB job...

    There's a lot of truth in that last statement. Certainly not enough do right now. I could ... I'll say again, COULD ... be a winnable program. Gonna take the kind of guy to sell the idea, help get the middle schools back on track (with the help of Elkhart Central) and get some continuity. Right now, there is none. Bill B.
  11. The field at Northridge was cleared of snow on Wednesday afternoon. Hasn't snowed since Tuesday. Two full days of sunshine have burned off all the clumps and little chunks. There wasn't that much to begin with... it's nothing like South Bend. Most of Elkhart County you can barely even see that it's snowed. It'll be firm, but nothing brutal. Should be a fun night. Bill B.
  12. New Prairie's official stat packs lists 5,454 yards. Don't know what's logged on MaxPreps. Bill B.
  13. Yup. Agree. Recognizing formations then literally eyeing the football is huge in this game for NR defense. Be an interesting game of adjustments on both sides. Bill B.
  14. It's early in the week, of course, but two things are quite clear ... New Prairie's signature is the offense. They way it's run can be dominating. It's very impressive to watch when running well. Cougars know exactly what they're doing. Agreed, NP is susceptible through the air, in my opinion, but run defense I believe is tough. Northridge's lead punch is defense, a great front seven with quick, physical athletes. Raiders haven't allow a second-half point in two months and they managed enough offense to win the last two games. Timely passing was key against Leo and Norwell. Run game is three-pronged and grinds it out, too. I don't see 31-28, to be honest. I see first team to three scores wins. Just my two cents. It'll be a fun week. Bill B.
  15. NLC 2014

    Don't know if you're asking me or just in general, but I would say Zickafoose, Fickert and Carson would be strong picks by the Raiders. Possibly Sven Johnson, the OLB. Just my thought. Bill B.
