    It has been a remarkable season for the Raiders up to this point. Hats off to Coach Wogoman for what he and his staff have accomplished with this group.

    Well, whatever the case, Plymouth let a very bad Wawasee team stick it to them up front. I am pretty sure that the Rockies were not missing their entire offensive and defensive fronts. Plymouth went for it on 4th down several times only to be stoned by a defense giving up an average of over 400 yards rushing per game. Like I said, for a ranked team and a conference contender, not impressed.

    Watched Plymouth play Wawasee and was not impressed with the Rockies. Wawasee held Plymouth in check in the first half by manhandling Plymouth's O Line. The wheels came off for the Warriors in the second half when they fumbled a punt snap in the endzone and Plymouth recovered for a TD. It was not until the 4th quarter when Wawasee's 8 two way starters were gassed that Plymouth was able to impose their will. The Rockies were up 22 with 6 minutes left and recovered an on side kick they converted into a late TD for the final margin, but the score is deceiving. Wawasee was able to move the ball on the Rockies with a third string freshman QB after the starter was knocked out of the game and was able to rush the ball against the Rockies. I would think Concord would have a clear advantage against the Rockies from what I saw. I think the epic showdown for conference supremacy will happen.

    Yep, we in K co are wet blankets. Seven is not ideal, but it is better than 9, 10, 11 certainly. It is better than traveling to New Prairie on a snowy Tuesday January evening for a girls basketball game. What makes more sense is discussing who the NLC should be targeting for inclusion as their eighth team. The NLC needs to actively pursue those teams. My top three are Mishawaka, East Noble, and Columbia City. Already disqualified are those schools who do not participate in all the NLC sponsored sports.

    Just letting you know he is playing because he practiced all week. My reference about the long passing td's is referencing your mention of Wawasee putting up 29 points on the Minutemen. The scores were largely due to Concord turn overs and poor defensive alignment rather than the Warriors having an offense that could drive the field. As I sit at Andrews field I see a very sloppy game by both squads, but Wawasee's defense is so bad that 2 Northwood backs have about 200 yards rushing each. I wonder if Wawasee practices tackling because they sure are poor at it.

    Wawasee is not down 2 quarterbacks, Evans is starting. As for those looooong touchdowns the Warriors threw against the Minutemen - they were both slants and Concord had no safties in the middle of the field. One on one coverage with no one over the top=two easy touchdowns.

    QB not so much of a factor. The starter was mediocre at best. TD passes were basically slants the WR's took to the house. The backup was projected to be the starter until the coach's son showed up, so they are an equal trade off. Wawasee's problem is that the offensive line is horrid and the defense is even worse. This is the second game into this coach's era and I remember when the previous coach began his head coaching career there was chaos on the sideline. There is chaos on the sideline now....and this guy is a veteran head coach. Not sure where this program is headed. Things may get real ugly in the NLC for the Warriors.

    Wawasee looked aweful in every phase of the game. They burned all three time out early and the coaching staff was tagged with several delay of game penalties because they could not get a play in on time after they burned their time outs. They lost some players to injuries and they lost their starting QB for the season with a broken elbow. Defensively they could not stop anything, especially the run. In two games the defense has given up nearly 600 yards rushing and close to 70 points. Give West Noble credit, they played tough football and stuck it to the Warriors and they deserved to win from the opening whistle. The bright spot is that the back up QB for Wawasee is much faster and more athletic than the kid they had in there before, but they are going to need more than just a QB to make any serious progress.

    Well, the Warriors fell a few points short of 70......
  12. NLC 2017

    Apparently the new Wawasee coach told his kids to go out and hang 70 on West Noble. Your prediction may go by the wayside - we will see.

    What does the probable future hold for Bremen, Jimtown, and John Glenn?
  14. NLC 2017

    Do the Eddies have swimming? Their events for track and field are slightly different. I think their girl's basketball season lines up differently as well as volleyball. It would be better to try and poach a team from another conference in Indiana. Culver Academies?
  15. NLC 2017

    When the remaining NSC schools invited Wawasee to join a new conference I am told the answer was a resounding no and one of the arguments was that New Prairie was too far away. Mishawaka would be an attractive addition being a 4A enrollment school and realtively easy travel. If Penn would be an option, then why give Elkhart the boot? Including either St. Joe or Marian is not all that attractive in my opinion. South Bend - we played Washington in football last year and the 10 fans they brought were spirited. I am not sure Fairfield would want to leave the NECC, but they do not have all the sports. A couple of teams that might be attractive to add are both 4A and are pretty good in many sports are East Noble (20 miles from Wawasee - same distance to Northridge for Wawasee) and Columbia City.
