I believe NJSP will go undefeated in the conference. They are returning 10-11 starting seniors. They are the strongest I have ever seen a team be across the board. From freshman to the seniors. They have put the Time in the weight room and most of them have been to several camps this year . Definitely gonna be a awesome season. My hat goes off to Coach Lambert and his coaching staff. They are definitely leading the team in the right direction 

Pretty bold statements. I agree that NJ will have a fantastic season. I just remember hearing/reading similar comments like this from NJ fans on social media and radio coming into the semistate game against AC last year. The game was over by halftime. I think Winamac fans were also saying similar things last year and NJ came in and humbled them. 

My point is it’s pretty early to be declaring “undefeated” and “strongest I’ve ever seen.” Good luck to NJ in what should be a fun season.

My point was more about what seems to be a tendency for NJ fans to put the cart in front of the horse than it was about living in the past. At AC we don’t worry too much about living in the past because we’re ready to compete every year no matter what is lost to graduation.

To each their own. Act as a fan/player/coach as you see fit. I just know the same attitude was shared last year heading into SS. Complete underestimation of their opponents. I don’t think the NJ people had any clue what they were getting into. Maybe it’s different this year.

Enjoy the success that you’ve already made up in your heads. I’m sure after a solid season in 22 (which should apparently end in a state championship according to the NJ fans on GD), NJ will return to winning sectional every 4 years or so. Hope to see the Bluejays again in semistate.

1st, if you take Spanky’s posts as anything but NJ comedy, then you don’t get the point of his posts.

2nd, NJ could be very good this year. Everyone knows that who pays attention. Luckily, the staff and players do a good job of focusing on one game at a time.

3rd, everyone involved in the program last year knew that Adam’s Central was really tough! I would guess that you guys will be really good again this year. To say that the coaches and players were looking past AC is a false statement. However, there are always fans that look one step ahead, which is what is fun about being a supporter of a team.

From what I saw last season and from what I recall teams lost vs what they have returning I think Laville will have the most talent and should be the favorites to win their first conference championship

Been a few days since we had any posts . . . 

Any first-week happenings in the land of the Hoosier North?

 

Anybody pick up any move-ins or any incoming freshmen making a run for some playing time?

 

Just a week away from the scrimmages, ya'll!

 

Speaking of scrimmages, was driving by a local high school last week and the truck was at the football field.  Not sure if they were replacing lights, or fixing lights, but the truck arm was up and the guy working in the bucket was tending to a bank of lights!

A good sign that Friday Night Lights are drawing near . . . 

 

as always, the game is better

Where’s Andy and the stat boy from Winamacs? They usually have a lot of input. Maybe scouting at McDonald’s, I gotta go 

I've been mostly lurking for a while now. 

I'm curious to see if Pioneer can reload this year.

When I last talked to Coach Lambert's dad, he was very excited about this NJ squad. The NJ/LV game will be a dandy.

I think this is the most intriguing year in football since the HNAC began.  For the first time Pioneer is not the overwhelming favorite to win the conference title.  And there should be some very solid teams when it comes to tourney time in October.  I agree that Judson and LaVille should be at the top.  But Triton and Pioneer won't be far back.  I'm not sure what Knox returns, but I'm guessing Radke will have them playing good football as well.  

Someone earlier in this thread suggested that Pioneer could actually finish in the bottom half of the conference this year.  Now that would be a shock!  I think in the eyes of other HNAC teams, the loss to LaVille in the sectional last year instantly brought the Panthers back to being "beatable".  I suspect the loss didn't sit well with the returning Pioneer players and they likely worked their backsides off this summer so that doesn't happen again!  So it will be interesting to see how it all shakes out.  I'm excited to get things going.
