Last season the Indians went 0-9 overall and 0-6 in conference play.

With the cancellation it will see 9 schools scrambling looking to fill their schedules. According to the posting they are hoping to fill a Freshman/Sophomore schedule for this fall.

New Idea had factories in Sandwich (Illinois) and Coldwater (Ohio), in the 1950’s the two schools played each other in basketball and in football.
