    Ouch, congrats Warsaw on the big win, hoping Grabers knee isn't too serious.

    I think Lakeland and Angola turns out to be fairly close

    Last week I went 4-0 on my picks, making me 19-4 on the season somehow. It looks like the weather will be perfect tonight, so no excuses not to go support your teams. Memorial @ Plymouth - After an OT win by 3 over Warsaw and a loss by 3 at Northridge last week, I think Plymouth will be ready for Memorial, although I think it'll be another nail biter. I think Memorial is turning things around and are far better than people give them credit, but getting a win at the Rockpile is always tough. Tonight is Youth Football Night for the Rockies, and I'm guessing the atmosphere will be great. Plymouth by 3 Goshen @ Concord - Although I still think Goshen is better than last year, and Concord is a bit down from their great team last year, I think it will be a somewhat competitive game, at least through the first half. Junior High Night at Concord for their kids and Jake Field will be packed. Concord by 14 Northwood @ Wawasee - I loved Wawasee's military uniforms a few weeks back. I was incredibly impressed by Wawasee's punter Brayden Johnson, but he unfortunately won't be enough to keep this close. Northwood by 45 Warsaw @ Northridge - As others have mentioned on here, I think this will be the game of the week. My thoughts are if Warsaw's defense can stop the Northridge run game they will win. Either way I think it's close, but going with the homer pick and they're playing at home. Northridge by 3

    Glad to have a Coach Funk sighting, haven't seen you around here since last year during sectionals. Looks like another great year for Angola, wish the same was true for your kids down in Benton 😞 As for Coach Nowlin, I think we can all agree that he does a great job on this site, and we should all be incredibly thankful for having a place like this to come talk about Indiana High School football. I've visited several other high school football sites from different states, and this one is at or near the top (I've been lurking here for 10+ years, but forgot my old log in a few years back). Having read the comments before they were removed, I can read between the lines and figure out at least a good idea of what was going on. Coach Nowlin is right in calling out the bad behavior,, especially when our teams are already fighting an uphill battle to get kids to stay involved in youth-high school football. I do tend to agree that it should in most circumstances be dealt with directly with the person or people being a knucklehead rather than a broad statement. That being said, the NLC thread (as well as several others) has been really slow compared to years past and that doesn't sit well with me. I'm afraid some people may misinterpret his statement and be hesitant to post on here as much as in the past. Keep the personal attacks/beef out of the GID and you shouldn't have to worry about anything, otherwise let's get back to the predictions/trash talk as we've been doing for years. (Northwood, your white helmets are ugly, just sayin) I'll be throwing my 2 cents on the NLC games in a little bit...gotta make sure I don't lose my spot in line for the Garth Brooks tickets at ND Stadium. Otherwise my wife may kill me.

    Always appreciate your insight on the Tigers and the rest of the NLC. Although I have to add, Fairfield has only played 3 games this year since they had to cancel the game last week against CMA. I think the biggest battle to watch tomorrow night in Middlebury will be can the Warsaw defense slow down the Northridge running game. If so I think Warsaw wins, but I'm still thinking Northridge in another close one if they can clean up the dumb penalties.
  8. Dolphins vs Colts on Thanksgiving weekend at LOS, take it to the bank. Not sure if they qualify for 6A, but they'd probably be the best chance at handing Warren Central their only loss this year, and that is assuming Lucks arm doesn't fall off midseason and his newly formed wall in front of him gets and stays healthy. Otherwise I like: 6A - Warren Central 5A - New Pal 4A - East Central 3A - Memorial 2A - Eastbrook 1A - Pioneer

    definitely haven't counted them out in any game yet this year, simply believe they'll continue to grow and be more consistent after a little time under their new coach

    Would have loved to see some NLC talent like Yoder sign with an Indiana school, but.... William & Mary had the inside track all along Trevor Andrews (brother of current Northwood Coach Nate and son of NW Legend Jim Andrews) is the William and Mary Defensive Coordinator. Trevor was the Northwood QB on the 93 3A State Runner up team for the Panthers that lost to Roncalli 14 to 12. Former Northwood Coach Rich Dodson's son Wes (and step brother to Trevor), also spent 2 years coaching at William & Mary. Some time after the elder Andrews died in 92 in a car accident, his widow Sheri (Nate & Trevor's mom) married Rich Dodson. Wes was the QB on the 1996 Semi State Northwood team that lost to Dwenger. Both Wes and Trevor played some college ball before becoming coaches. Also Jon Andrews (cousin to Nate & Trevor) who used to help coach the Panthers, became the team Chaplain a few years back.

    I think it was more of a statement for Memorial heading in the right direction. I'm sure Warsaw will be much more consistent after a year or two of Coach Curtis' system. I follow he and his son on Twitter and I'm really impressed with their community involvement already. Northridge looked really good in the first half against Plymouth, but came out flat after halftime. I think if they could clean things up and play good Raider football for 4 quarters they'd be dangerous. Too many penalties week in and week out so far though (not surprising with as young of a team as they are).

    On paper, 3 of the 4 NLC games this Friday should be fairly lopsided, especially the Northwood/Wawasee game. I think the Warsaw @ Northridge game should be the closest of any of them. I'm curious to hear any thoughts from the Warsaw faithful after 4 games.

    It was a great atmosphere and a great game, wish we had the great facilities that you guys have! Maybe in a year or two.

    48 points through 3 games to be exact.... gonna depend on public/school board approval

    if you're looking for a game to come watch tonight, come up to Middlebury, should be a great one... I think West Noble actually competes with Angola tonight... Also I saw that the Fairfield Youth players were out active with the High School kids last night, hoping that can help draw more interest in the younger guys coming up through the system.
