July 1, 2015
By

Roger Goodell’s name has certainly appeared too often in the media this year.  If you do not know, he is the commissioner of the NFL.  He is really the owner’s puppet, not a leader.  Most of his decisions seem to favor what the owners want and not what is best for the sport. Domestic...

Congratulations to the area schools who made a great run in the softball and baseball state tournaments this year.  Milan and Franklin County girls both made it to the semi-state in softball.  Ironically, both schools lost 1-0.  I know in the case of Franklin County they were a very young team and should be...

You have heard me complain on this blog about Indiana and Purdue allowing “Blue Chip” basketball players to go out of state to play.  In the past couple of months, both IU and Purdue have done quite well in the recruiting wars.  Recently, Purdue received a commitment from a Texas Juco guard and garnered...

Unlikely State Champ

June 22, 2015
By

When Hamilton Southeastern’s Francis Ehigbai came out for track this spring, no one expected him to be a state champion.  After all, an ACL injury in his left knee kept him from playing basketball his senior year.  Since his leg was still not as strong as he would have liked it to be, he decided...

By

I know I am prejudiced when it comes to school facilities for sports, because I spent most of my career coaching.  However, all people in the medical fields keep telling us that our young people are not getting the exercise they need.  With the fact that all school activities are done with computers and almost...
