If those schools are leaving the NWOAL, where would they be going? I don't think there is a conference that would be able to accommodate 3 teams joining up (the TAAC would be the natural one given the schools involved, but do they have room for 3?or do evergreen, delta, & swanton leave the NWOAL .. & Napoleon, defiance, and maumee could replace them??? cause i’ve heard a few rumors that them 3 schools are pretty unhappy in the league.
I think the NLL just asks Wauseon, Bryan, and Defiance to join instead of Maumee and Napoleon leaving the stronger setup with BG and Southview. I don't think Maumee leaves the NLL for the NWOAL if they declined the NBC unless they're forced out...that would be a weird fit, and I doubt Liberty Center and Patrick Henry would want to be in a conference with Maumee and Defiance given how significant that size discrepancy would be. Not outside the realm of possibility by any means, but I don't think that's anywhere near as likely as the two scenarios I laid out.
I could easily see Swanton, Delta, Evergreen, Liberty Center, Patrick Henry, and Archbold seeing what Ottawa Hills and Northwood think about jumping in if Wauseon and Bryan leave though. I think that would be a pretty great conference setup for all involved, would remove the long drives to Williams County for OH and Northwood, the private schools gaming the system the way the TCS and Stritch have been doing lately, and would have a pretty steady identity as far as size and school demographics (with OH being the obvious exception who couldn't find a home anywhere else.
