Head Coach Opening 2019 Read more... ×

Recommended Posts

Just  few short weeks to the start of the 2018 season

NIC will see a few new coaches, turf at Rice Field and School Field (Have not heard if this has started yet)

New Prairie moves up to the bigger school division and Clay moves down which resulted in some scheduling changes.

So, thoughts on the upcoming season..........................

NIC South will be a dog fight.  I expect Bremen to be very competitive. Glenn will be better, don't know about Riley or Washington. Jimtown will be Jimtown, and Marian has a new coach with a great mentor guiding him.  Clay? It is a good move for them, but I don't know if they will play a factor yet.

Clay is in recent years has been stuck in reverse.  The program will not be competitive in the "small school" division, based on lack of competitiveness in games against current members of that division.  It is unfortunate to see this because they used to have some good teams.  

I am excited to see what New Prairie has to offer in the "Big" School division.

Interested to see the new look Cave folks in Mishawaka. Is the new coach going to run Bart's system, or are they going to a new o?

I anticipate Marian being solid even with a new head coach.

Penn just added Cincinnati St. Xavier to 4 rotating games starting in 2019!  I believe they are Ohio's state champs i  their division.

Whoa! That is a serious upgrade in their schedule. Good for them.

Not currently.  Pickerington Central won it in 2017.

It is the school that produced ND linebacker Rocky Boiman and NFL star Luke Kuechly

Interested to see what everyone has coming back?

NP loses several linemen to graduation.  Have some big guys stepping in to fill the spots, but will be inexperienced until Russ and staff coach them up and they get some games under their belts.  Have some good skill position players returning.  Overall expecting another successful season.  Switching sides of the conference will be interesting as mentioned.  Had good success against Mishawaka and St. Joe last year, but as always it's a new season.

The other side should be wide open with NP moving and Riley graduating their QB that was a big part of their offense.  I think Bremen was pretty young last year if I remember correctly.

Mishawaka ranked 5th in the 4A Preseason poll. HMM.... Very team last year. 5 seems high to me.

Heard that since South Bend High Schools are getting out of school @ 4:00 p.m. this year,  Football teams will not be able to get a bus on Friday for games until 5:30 p.m.  This will cause many games to start at 

7:30 p.m. instead of 7:00p.m.  Has anyone else heard this?

New Prairie scrimmaged Michigan City.  NP never shows much in scrimmages and sat several key players.

Starting two massive young kids at offensive tackles.  As they gain experience the Cougars will get better and better.

Friday cant get here fast enough.

What are they going to do with volleyball that normally starts at 6?  This whole thing rammed through at the last minute did not take into consideration anything but lack of bus drivers
