Good Old Days

October 14, 2013
By

Before I get into today’s topic, I would like to add a clarification to an article I ran last week.  In the conference football championships, the scenario I was trying to report that one team could win a championship in their division and wind up with an overall 2-5 conference schedule (I think I...

EIAC Football Split

October 11, 2013
By

Yesterday I explained the reason for the EIAC split in the football portion of the conference.  To me, when you have a 9-game regular season, it is not that difficult to schedule the other 7 schools and have a single conference champion.  Theoretically, someone could win a single game in their portion of the conference...

EIAC Football

October 10, 2013
By

When the EIAC added Connersville and Rushville, the question of how to play the football part of the conference became a sticking point.  An anonymous member of the EIAC inner circle told me that Lawrenceburg did not want to play East Central, and East Central in return did not want to play Lawrenceburg.  At...

Homecoming Week

October 9, 2013
By

We are in the middle of another Homecoming Week.  For most adults in the community, it is just another football game this weekend; but for the kids, it is one of the special weeks of the school year.  From the idea of building a float to finally getting it done, to the Powder Puff game,...

Should the Reds Keep Choo?

October 8, 2013
By

Shin-Soo Choo has certainly been worth the price the Reds paid to get him.  Now comes the task of deciding if he should stay.  When they traded for him, their plan was to borrow him for one year to win a World Series and then let him go to free agency.  However, he did...

Good Kids

October 7, 2013
By

One of the reasons there is so much push to reform education comes from those school systems where the educational goal for teachers is to survive the year rather than teach the kids.  Fortunately, we live in an area where the opposite is true.  Just recently, the test scores were released, and again, Batesville...

Oklahoma State

October 4, 2013
By

I suppose by now you have read about the mess at Oklahoma State.  Allegedly around 2005-2008 the football program was making their own profits by selling drugs.  Several players have come forward saying that drugs were so prevalent in the locker room that everyone had to know what was going on.  Like most stories...

Miss America

October 3, 2013
By

I guess I have lost my campaign against tattoos when a Miss America candidate makes the finals with a very visible tattoo.  If the Miss America pageant doesn’t have a problem with a tattoo, I guess pro-sports, college sports, and high school sports won’t do anything about it either.  I do not find tattoos...

Act Like You Have Been There

October 2, 2013
By

If you have been in athletics at all, you are more than likely familiar with the statement “act like you have been there before”.  It refers to when you score or when you make a good play you should not taunt the other team.  You go back on defense or move back to the huddle or...

Rushville & Connersville

October 1, 2013
By

It is interesting to me that Rushville joined the EIAC.  In the past few years, Rushville was dropping almost all of the EIAC schools with the exception of Greensburg and Batesville because they said it was too far to travel to play the rest of the league.  Then, all of a sudden, meetings were...
