  1. Got it, and that is how Mishawaka was able to join, thanks for the clarification.
  2. Is there any reason the NLC wouldn't allow Elkhart to stay in, given that they already have a couple of 5A and one 6A school, what's wrong with adding another 6A school.
  3. Mishawaka to NLC

    I’m not sure if this is still the case, but the chair of the DAC is rotated every year, I think it’s MC this year. Also, gymnastics was a required team to be part of the conference as it usually has the top teams in the state for that sport. The principals have changed a lot over the years, but the ADs have not, so they are really running the show in terms of who gets in the conference. Even though they have fallen off, of you want to know which way the DAC is going, ask the Queen from Merrillville, she has the mit clout.
  4. Mishawaka to NLC

    I can also see Penn and Elkhart joining the DAC, they all play one another in many non football sports already. Yeah, distance *%#!?*s driving through the snowbelt and time zone change, but for those two it is reasonable. None of the DAC schools are currently bringing fans in droves with them anyway, maybe MC and then next LaPorte. Penn has had an open invite to join the DAC for years, so if they wanted they could get in, the extra 20 minute drive on the toll road would make it almost two hours between Lake Central and Elkhart. Still not a deal breaker. I know the lake county DAC school teams travel up and down 65 or across 30 to the Warsaw in other sports. MC and LaPorte have no reason financially or for competitive reasons to join the NIC, even with some of those schools closer than Crown Point or Lake Central.
  5. Cathedral and Penn

    Person after you posted made the comment. Former HF coach Tony Lombardi.
  6. Cathedral and Penn

    HF is definitely on par with BD and WC in terms of talent and athletes but I don't think they were light years ahead of BD from last year. They play Michigan City this year in Michigan City, last year Michigan City went over to their and took a beating, the only loss they had all year that wasn't a last minute one. HF will no longer be playing Michigan city after this year which opens them up for a good non conference non Illinois first game of the year and for them, quality of opponent matters for playoff purposes.
  7. Slicer 28, I wasn't implying or trying to, that MC is recruiting. All I'm saying is that there are parents who see a team doing good things, and may want to send their kids their, regardless of if coaches and players are telling them to come. There is a RB on MC's team with ties to a few DAC schools whose parent did this. People said the combine displayed their talent, not that they were recruiting other teams players. In terms of parents scrambling, look at their qb this fall and reevaluate that comment.
  8. Cant confirm 100 percent, but I know that more parents are interested in playing for a team that can make a deep run in the playoffs in NWI, since no other DAC schools are trying to do so. From what I heard from area coaches, they had a great looking group of skill and down lineman at their combine last month.
  9. Speaking of an administration going hard for a title, just heard that MC hired another former head coach to add to Mason's staff and that they may have more transfers like they did last year to help them make a deep run. The coach's name is similar to the person the Super Bowl trophy is named after I heard?
  10. 6A Football

    Dont forget Mark Hurt at Ball State
  11. I'm not sure you understand that it's not taking money from the academic budget of the school or the district, but only from the athletic departments budget. Being that South Bend has a city-wide AD, I assume he probably oversees distribution of money raised as a whole to each buildings athletic department. Im sure each building generates some type of revenue as well. The majority of your best students play sports, so if the central office admin decided to move sports away from a school and since South Bend has themed schools, I'm sure many of those tops students would leave. Long winded way of saying just like Hammond and IPS, no contraction.
  12. 5A - 2018 Edition

    From the DAC LaPorte and Michigan City will be strong. While MC looses its leading rushers and three year starter at QB, and leading wr, they being back their online and host of other skilled kids. On MC looses their best player this season Vasquez but get back Robinson in dl who missed the last part of the year. Also Triplett and Wozniak at DE will be back. They will be fast and bigger next year and one more year with Mason as their coach. I expect for them to be back in the semi state next year,
  13. Watched the stream of MC game and you could see that MC had chances early throwing and often running, they just couldn't get out of their own way, especially when rain started. MC played that aggressive defense all year, daring teams to beat them over the top and Kokomo did it in the first half, but pretty much stopped in second half. Kokomo is a slow plodding team, on offense and as everyone saw, threw to #6 every single play until MC finally adjusted. A team with speed and committed to running like I'm hearing East is should have success.
  14. Rick Wimmer should be added to the list, close but no cigar in Merrillville, but he has won two with two different schools, most recently Fishers and then also Zionsville. Unfortunately he was ran out of Merrillville, go figure, the current AD who has run the program into the ground got rid of one of the best coaches in the state of Indiana and also passed on Phil Mason amongst others. Also, don't think Homewood Flossomor has made it to the title game in Illinois.
  15. I remember him, he ran through Mville like Swiss cheese in a game that year. Spicer or Jackson were there backs that year.
