    Sectional 19 Thoughts?

    Interestingly enough, Wawasee got their first win of the season this past Friday beating Goshen 13 to 10....Not saying it will happen, but with how we've played the 2nd half of the season and with all the injuries, it could be a more competitive game between Northridge/Wawasee the 2nd time around
  2. Congrats to the Wawasee Warriors on their first win of the year. They beat Goshen 13 to 10.

    NLC - 2018

    Since it's almost August I figured it's time to get some NLC Football discussion going. Anyone have any predictions for your schools, or the conference as a whole? I have been mostly out of the loop until the last week or two, so I have no real idea on how the conference might shake out. Northridge lost a whole bunch of seniors that contributed to last years conference title, but we do return our "backup/starting" qb that looked really good the last few seasons filling in for Nick Hooley. My way too early prediction for this season would be that we win 6-7 games and compete for the title, but I think the conference should be pretty even across the board minus possibly a couple of teams still trying to establish things.

    I predict a tough road through 19 again, but I see Northwood winning it this year (admittedly don't know much about Angola). I think Northwood would have a legitimate shot at beating anyone in 4A this year, although it's really hard to predict anything in the post season from the Ft. Wayne schools with their regular season nepotism. I think the winner of the Mishawaka/Hobart opener should be favored out of the other Regional, but New Prairie is always a tough go and you can't count the Red Devils out. My prediction (admittedly based on familiarity) would be a Northwood/Mishawaka Semi State

    Flippin Cow has a killer deal on steaks (I believe on Mondays)...me being a cheapskate, that's where I took the wife on our first date, made for a nice motorcycle ride around the lake too

    forgot about 41º North, only been there once, but always seems busy....Village Inn is a good bet too now that it's back to original ownership.

    NLC - 2018

    My favorites in the general area of each NLC school *minus the chain places you can find everywhere else): Concord: Volcanos or Ricky's Taquiera for pregame, Grandmas is a breakfast staple Elkhart Memorial: Simeri's or Heinnies (although I'm not sure it isn't in Central territory) Goshen: Hoppers, Tony's if you don't mind the Work Release crew chowing down with you Northridge: prior to the fire, Hilltop, now I'd have to go with Rulli's, unless you're an out of towner and like the sight seeing at Essenhaus Northwood: Hunter's without a doubt, BBQ from the Coppes building is a really good bargain for lunch as well Plymouth: not much dining experience from me down there, I've been to Christos and Wings Etc...The Brass Rail maybe? Warsaw: Oak & Alley, Mad Anthonys, Bennigans (mainly because I miss the one in Elkhart), or my personal favorite, Hardees Wawasee: Sleepy Owl, Gropps/Petes/Petersons Fish whatever it's called these days. Also a great choice, gotta love their Turtle Soup as well

    now this is a topic I can get behind! lol I'll add my 2 cents/suggestions in a few Also in Goshen, "The O" is closed for remodeling...gonna be a kid friendly hipsterish establishment when they're done I believe

    NLC - 2018

    They now play for the Warhawk trophy if I'm not mistaken....although I believe one of the Wawasee guys broke it the first or 2nd year they had the new travelling trophy. My wife is a Redskin, she even worked there the last 2 years and would wear her old Redskin gear just to prove your point. I have my step bro's helmet from the 88 championship team and occasionally bust it out to show my non PC friends at Goshen. I think I post about as much as anyone but you on the NECC thread as well, pretty sad year for local crap talking regulars lol

    at least it's a home and home deal, rather than both at the same place...I don't see Northwood having a problem either time though

    NLC - 2018

    Gameday and the NLC thread is almost on page 3, here's my quick thoughts on tonight's matchups. Concord at Northridge ©, 7 pm Plymouth at Goshen ©, 7 pm Warsaw at NorthWood ©, 7 pm Wawasee at Memorial ©, 7 pm Concord @ Northridge - I think it'll be close, some bad blood from last year's social media disputes between the two schools? who knows, but either way it should be a good game. Northridge by 7 Plymouth @ Goshen - Plymouth shouldn't have a problem, but they have had a lot of close games this year so who knows. Plymouth by 10 Warsaw @ Northwood - Game of the week, possibly season here, whoever wins should also at least share the NLC title this year. Warsaw by 3 Wawasee @ Memorial - should also be a good game, on the other end of the conference standings. I'll give Memorial the advantage at home. Memorial by 14 I'll most likely be going to the Three Rivers/Edwardsburg game tonight, hopefully we stay dry!

    NLC - 2018

    Northwood is crazy good this year, but having seen both teams I don't think it's out of the question for Warsaw to get the W. I came in expecting Northwoods Defense to dominate us, however with a slew of injuries, a QB who was starting his first Varsity game, we still put 30 on them (mostly from passing the ball), in Nappanee, we just had no answer for Yoder (nobody has yet). We looked to be off to a great start (1st few drives up 14 to 0) against Warsaw, but they bounced back and shut us out the rest of the game. Our special teams forgot how to punt the ball and the team looked lost without their leader and other key starters going down. If Warsaw want's a chance this Friday I don't think they can give up 2 quick touchdowns like they did to us and still pull off the win.

    NECC 2018

    Very true, but it didn't seem to matter last year in the meatgrinder of a sectional (19)....looks to be just as competitive this year as last year, depending on the draw I expect it to come down to Angola/Northwood
  15. NRRaider2001

    Most Surprising Teams??

    I second this, Warsaw has been a surprise as to how quickly they've been competitive this year. Can't wait to see the game this Friday night at Northwood!

    Sectional 19 Thoughts?

    Never thought it would be even close to last years competition level, but yet here we are. Northwoods only real chance in my opinion at a loss before Sectionals will be their match against Warsaw. Having seen them in person along with the rest of the NLC teams, they're the clear favorites out of that bunch. I haven't seen CMA, East Noble, or Angola since last year at Sectionals, but they all appear to be right up there. My way too early guess would be Northwood/Angola will be the favorites, but a lot can happen in a few weeks time to change that opinion.

    NLC - 2018

    I'm looking forward to a nice crisp cool fall evening in Goshen tonight. Going to grab some Hacienda after the game with some Goshen friends, and hopefully a little trash talk after a Raider victory. Hopefully both teams don't get any more injuries and it's a competitive game.

    NLC - 2018

    Good stuff I don't have the time to go through my normal rundown, tonights winners in my opinion will be Northwood, Warsaw, Northridge, and Plymouth with 2 close and 2 not close

    WEEK 7 - AP POLL

    nice to see Bremen getting some love with their 1 first place vote! Our area is pretty well represented in 4A as well.

    this is exactly what we need more of, with a few less schizo's lol

    NLC - 2018

    If a team could somehow figure out how to stop Yoder, I'm not so sure they're unbeatable. Warsaw is a wide FG away from a perfect record this year, hopefully they can make some noise in Sectionals this year as well, I don't think this year's Penn team is as dominant at this point in the season as they have been in years past. I think New Prairie hangs with them and possibly beats them this Friday.

    NLC - 2018

    Much appreciated, I can only scan through Colts/Notre Dame forums so much to burn time at work I think we're still young and we struggle with consistency so far this year (especially with the injury bug hitting), but I was happy to see our offense looked good against a really good Northwood team. How about the Hornets? are they looking as good as last years team? Sectional 19 looks to be a good one again

    My statement(s) were referring to how dead our fan participation in the NLC thread and in the GID has been. I'm not sure what we're agreeing to disagree on other than maybe a perception that my wording was a criticism of you, it wasn't intended to be. Both times you gave rules reminders in this thread it was warranted. I'm simply disappointed that we as NLC fans aren't representing as well as we have done in the past. I see @NLCTigerFan07 commenting in a few other threads and I try to do the same, but in general, I don't see as much discussion from us as I'd like to see.

    NLC - 2018

    yeah, probably worded it incorrectly, but regardless, you've had to come on here and crack the whip too many times for such a slow year in the NLC thread.
