  1. HNAC Week 6

    First the snoozers: North Judson 42 West Central 0 Judson should roll in this one. North Miami 35 Caston 7 Comets are just struggling. More interesting game: Knox 42 Laville 12 Could very easily see this as a close game. Knox has some weaknesses. Culver and NJ have exposed some of them. The question is can the Lancers take advantage and create some exposures of their own. In the end, I think the youth of LV will do them in. Knox rolls in this one. Game of the week: Culver 21 Winamac 7 I really thought Culver had a legitimate shot of entering this game with no losses or maybe 1. Talent is there. What is missing? That can only be answered by the team and coaches. At the rate they are going, this game will be much closer than it should be. Culver will hang on to win. Tough one: Triton 54 vs. Pioneer 54 What should be a game of excitement and a measuring stick in Trojan land, will be somber and full of heartbreak. My heart really goes out to the teammates, coaches and Bourbon community. Nobody should have to go through that. Kudos to the great gestures shown by everyone at Pioneer. Here's to everyone having a safe game and fighting through the emotions of a terrible tragedy. #54
  2. Prayers from Culver Academies.
  3. HNAC Week 5

    WOW. Thought I laid on the sarcasm pretty thick. If you actually read from the beginning of the thread, you might understand the post. I'll try and type slower next time.
  4. HNAC Week 5

    First the snoozers: Pioneer Whatever - North White 0 Really? More interesting game: LaVille 28 - Caston 14 LV youngsters continue to improve. Caston might hang around for a bit, but depth will eventually catch up to them. Rest of the games could all be Game of the Week: Knox 21 -.Glenn 14 Glenn is much improved but I have a feeling Knox has something to prove this week. Word on the street is Knox has found 5 referees that hate Glenn and have guaranteed a win for the skins with bogus penalties. The 5 referees were also spotted at South Bend Regional airport getting off of a flight from Vegas. My guess is they flew out to put money on Knox to win and cover the spread. Culver 28 - Triton 17 I think Culver run game will be the difference in this one. If the Trojans can go to the air, they have a pretty good shot. North Judson 28 - Winamac 14 Very interesting game here. NJ has been in 2 of the 3 losses. A mild rivalry game here to boot. I think Judson will put it together this week and hand the Warriors another loss. I am beginning to think that the coach Barr was misquoted and actually meant they will go 1-8 this year, not 8-1.
  5. HNAC Week 5

    They could make a good fit however, it would quickly become a clone of the former NSC. 4 schools at the top each year and the rest fighting for the bottom.
  6. HNAC Week 5

    Offense was unique. Yes, they went up 28-0. Lined up with virtually no splits on the line and ran it right at us. Kind of picket fence style. They ran some misdirection out of it and tried passing. Timing wasn't great. Once we loaded the box, they threw right over the top to wide open receivers. Took awhile for us to wake up and adjust. Once we played assignment football, we were OK. They went away from their power running to try and get outside. Didn't work too well. Their run D was tough. We had success through the air which opened the run game. Was a very exciting game to witness. Western has size. Freshman (JV player) is 6'6" 280ish. Several big dudes 6'3"+ 200-300 pounds.
  7. HNAC Week 5

    Just watched Western this past week against CMA. Great new coach they have there. Lot of size and some speed. Should be a great opponent the next few years for RC.
  8. HNAC Week 5

    Really? Were the officials all Knox grads with something to prove? Do they hate NJ so much that they made sure the Jays wouldn't win the game? Did they have money on the game? I know officials get calls wrong. Contrary to the opinions of some officials on this site, they do. However, biased? Doubtful. What do the officials have to gain by being biased against high school kids? A good team wouldn't put themselves in a position to have a bad calls affect them. A great team would overcome them and win.
  9. HNAC Week 4

    First the snoozers: Culver at West Central - I must be the only one that thinks Culver is not that bad. According to a some posters, it looks like Culver was blown out by Knox. I guess only leading by 2 scores for most of the game and Culver having 2 chances in the second half to pull closer constitutes a blow out these days. So couple that with WC getting 2 guys back and we obviously have one doozy of a game on our hands. So taking all of the poster's information, I guess I will pick the Cavs to come from behind andd pull it out 7-6. North Judson at Knox - Knox wins big 42-14 Pioneer at Caston - Caston's only chance of a win is the coin toss. Whatever they want to 0 More interesting game: Winamac at LaVille - LV is young but has some talent. Winamac is young and has some talent. Comes down to coaching. Lancers win 24-7 Game of the week: Bremen at Triton - Triton has been playing well but not against the caliber of a teams like Bremen. Bremen is "down" but their record is deceiving. Admit it or not, soccer has hurt Bremen in a big way. I don't know the specifics or numbers but when you have football and soccer at a small school, something has to give. I see this being close throughout. It will come down to turnovers. If the Tojans can pull this off, then I think they have a very legitimate shot at the #2 spot. Triton controls their own destiny right now. I'm going with the upset pick (yes, it's still an upset) Trojans 28-24.
  10. Second that. He was by far the best I played against.
  11. HNAC Week 4

    I think you have a valid point. Despite the score, Culver played Knox pretty close. A couple of timely turnovers ultimately did the Cavs in. Credit goes to the Knox D too. If Triton can bring their "A" game against Knox and get the W, it could make things very interesting in the 2,3 and 4 spots. Plus the Culver-Triton matchup looks to be very intriguing as well. Lots of what ifs, that's why they play the game.
  12. Michiana Pick'Em 2017 Week 4

    Man that was a brutal week. If I have another one of those, many of you guys will then be beating Off In The Yard.

  14. HNAC Week 3

    First the gimme games: Rennselaer 56 North Judson 0 RCHS will be too much Winamac 42 North White 0 Warriors finally get into the win column. Will be much needed as this looks to be a loooong season for Winamac. Pioneer 56 LaVille 6 Yep More interesting game: Triton 35 Caston 14 Trojans continue to roll. Game of the week: Culver 28 Knox 27 Knox is good. They have some size, speed, experience. Culver only has size, speed, experience. South Central is a good team. Not the caliber of Knox but could finish 3, 4 or 5 if they were in the HNAC. Culver left a lot of points on the field against SC. Defense is playing lights out and will certainly be tested this week. A starter will be missing from the Culver lineup. He's on the DL with a very bad case of stupidity. Drs are hopeful there will be a cure for it, but just not this week. Back to the game, this has been quite the rivalry over the last 10 or so years. Records haven't meant alot during this stretch. While everyone is underestimating the Cavs, I'm picking the "underdog" in this one. If I'm wrong, so be it, I'll admit it.
  15. HNAC Week 3

    The broadcast on youtube under the name of LVH1. Like FP said, they do a great job broadcasting their games. Students actually run the cameras and do the behind the scenes stuff.
