HNAC Week #5 Picks

Recommended Posts

There has been a lot of talk on here about North Judson and how they haven't beaten a quality opponent yet this year.  I would think that Rensselaer fans would think differently about this.  I am wondering who are the quality teams that LaVille has beaten this year?

Exactly! That is precisely my thoughts. You know as soon as Judson beats Winamac they get knocked down to no longer a quality team.at least that seems to be conventional thinking here. I wouldn't say any team is low quality.but#lowquality seems to be trending here

If Winamac is a high quality team, then why wouldn't Rensselaer be one?  I think that Winamac and Rensselaer would be a good game.

Agreed!! I thought RC played a tough game against us. Edited by Sandman55

Great! Then you should have no trouble beating the Warriors tomorrow!

I would say Winamac, RC, and Knox would be quality or semi-quality teams against NJ so far, for the conference. Gave them a good look I should say. The Winamac and Judson will be great, period

As for LCC, they are in 1A because that is where their enrollment places them.  I'd bet you 1A is every bit as strong as 2A this season, so what's the difference?

We have quality players, just need to put it together, started last week with inserting soph at qb and wb, Soph at RB for ahler in 3 quarters went for 136, so its getting there.  

 

Agreed!! I thought RC played a tough game against us.

 

We did before we ran out of gas in the 2nd half, weight differences on the Judson O line vs our front 8 was huge in the 2nd half.  Also fumbling the 5th play of the game, after we marched it right down the field was a killer for us as we were off to a good start, could of changed the complection of the game, but to Judson's credit, they stripped the ball and made the play, we didn't.  5 turnovers won't win many games.  9-8 at half, 16-8 in the 3rd quarter and once again we were driving down the field, get inside the 20, 4th and 2 and our center snaps the ball and it falls out of his hand and dribbles 2 yards back, we jump on it and series over, Judson hits big run and scores shortly after, another HUGE momentum killer for us.   But as alluded to earlier, with 9 new guys on defense and 8 new guys on offense and LOTS LOTS of new guys on special teams its a building process, one that I am very excited about.  Need to be playing our best ball week 10-11-12, history has showed we have done that, see if 2015 group does it too.

That big strong front we have is a huge factor that many teams don't have. We use it to our advantage.We don't have a bunch of big fat guys up there either.theres some real muscle up there. Most teams have fast guys but most don't have big athletic fronts

From research and hearsay (some quality, some probably not).  This is what I know.  First, I am excited for this match up and I hope both teams stay undefeated until they play each other (Pio/NJ).   When it comes to size, just by numbers, North Judson trumps Pioneer.  Pioneer has 1 - 2 kids that are large, strong kids.  Physicality--> Physicality I think both are physical and both like to hit and would probably call it a wash there.   Speed-->  Pioneer gets the nod here.  The two Kiser boys are incredible when the ball is in their hands.  Scheme-->  Both Offenses are run heavy require disciplined defense to stop it.  Outside looking in, the X factors will be special teams play and passing game.

I would say Cass would beat RC this year... unfortunately they don't play, but will have common opponents to look at.

I will say Cass is probably better in week 5 than they were in week 1, but so is everyone else, including Pioneer and RC.

We have enough speed in the backfield and a stud fullback we have guys that can catch and also stop the pass.I think we're a lot tougher than were getting credit for.

Do I also have kids in the backfield and defensive backs and receivers?

Our success thus far is a team effort. No one person is the team. No one man show here

Sorry for interrupting the north Judson thread.

Knox over john Glenn 21 to 14

Culver over triton 28 to 7

As much as I love the Trojans pioneer 60 to 7

Winamacs passing game to much for the jays 28 to 21.

Laville dominates 44 to 7

Back to the bluejay show.

Longtime Bluejay fan Was watching the Jays when they were really good but also there when they were bad.

Had sons that were on successful Bluejay teams and not so successful teams

But when I watch this current team though vastly improved I get this impression

Fools Gold

I hope they prove me wrong

Sounds like the Jays are scary tough and dominating in the trenches. Look forward to watching them play.

Lot of football between now and then.

Good health and good luck to all HNAC teams.

Am I missing something here?  Winningisforthebirds just said your (his) North Judson team is not as good as you think (which is what "fools gold" means to me), and you're saying what he says is legit (in other words, you agree).  What gives?

GIGANTIC dose of sarcasm there! I figured that was self evident
