Just my personal feeling is this:
Battle Creek Blaze: Will be average
Indiana Cutters: Always tough
Indiana Minuteman: New but old, will be interesting to see what they can do.
Noble County Wolfpack: Will be the strongest team in the IFL
Marion County Crusaders: Will be tough, but can they win like they did in the CRFL?
Michiana Thunderhawks: Will be better then last year.
It is the 'Pack and everyone else. The Blaze have a tough road ahead of them according to IFL history.
Interstate Football League (est 2004)
(teams that did not win a game on the field in IFL play)
2004 - none
2005 - none
2006 - none
2007 - St Joseph Co (MI) Thunder ... folded before 2008 began
2008 - Classic City Crush ... went 2-5 in 2009 ... folded before 2010 began
2009 - St Joseph Co (MI) Panthers ... went 1-7 in 2010 ... folded after first game of 2011
2010 - Elkhart Shamrock ... went 0-10 in 2011
2011 - Elkhart Shamrock ... folded after 4 games in 2011
2011 - Wanee Hurricanes ... became "Michiana ThunderHawks" for 2012 season and went 3-5 (only two on-field victories, both vs BC Blaze)
2012 - Battle Creek (MI) Blaze ... to be determined
I can only hope that the league is pretty even this year. It makes things more fun for everyone involved when there is great competition. Don't count us totally, we haven't proved that we can win the big game yet.
