Probably not accurate as Harrell's also has Carmel's schedule looking like the following with their games against Pike, NC, WC, and CG listed as MIC games.

Can you elaborate on what Dunlap means?  It should read Concord, correct?

Correct.  Concord HS is technically in a small town (?) called Dunlap.  But is basically the southeastern part of Elkhart.

Concord has historically been the “little brother” that typically beat up on his older brother/brothers of Elkhart (or Central & Memorial before the merger).  
 

Has always been a rivalry there…my guess is someone at Elkhart was trying to make a statement.

Yes, Elkhart always refers to Concord as Dunlap as a diss lol

The new week nine games starting in 2022 will be Warsaw vs. Northridge, Concord vs. Plymouth, Goshen vs. NorthWood and Wawasee vs. Mishawaka.

Looks like only 1 of which has much potential at being competitive.

Yes, my understanding is that Elkhart needed to find a new week 2 opponent due to Carmel changing conferences and not being able to guarantee a week 2 game in 2023.

Correct - what @NRRaider2001 said. It's much like Ohio State referring to Michigan as "That Team Up North" and Michigan referring to Ohio State as simply "Ohio". It's Elkhart's way of trying to build a rivalry with Concord as I do not believe either Central or Memorial had a very big "rivalry" with the Minutemen, but makes sense geographically and perhaps back in the day when Elkhart was previously 1 high school they did have a rivalry with Concord.

Warsaw moves Michigan City to the first game of the season and brings in 6A foe Chesterton to beef up their non-conference schedule. Then with the NLC schedule shakeup take on rival Plymouth at home before arguably the most difficult 3 game conference schedule any team will face at Concord, at NorthWood and home against Mishawaka.

The Chesterton series is a home and home before the Tigers add Warren Central to the week 2 slot for the 2024 and 2025 seasons 😳

Good to see some NLC contenders beefing up their non conference schedules.   Should pay off during tournament time.

Usually not too much news this time of year, but obviously wanted to call out in this thread (mentioned in it's own thread) that Coach Barron resigned at Plymouth. That leaves two programs with head coach openings along with Goshen. Will be interesting to see/hear of any candidates that throw their names into the hat for both places. Both programs have had signficant levels of success in the NLC at one time or the other, but each have their respective challenges this day in age.
