High School Pranks

September 25, 2013
By

It was always a lot of fun (at least for the guys who did it, but not for the owner of the car) to pick up a small car from its parking place and either put it in an undriveable place or at least hide it.  We used to do this to a teammate...

Watching the Scoreboard

September 24, 2013
By

This, of course, is the time of the year baseball teams start watching the scoreboard every inning of their game.  They tell you they don’t, but I will guarantee you that if you ask them what their main rival was doing they would give you the score before they ever gave it a thought. ...

Old Football Field

September 23, 2013
By

The other day Jeff Miller and I were talking about press boxes at different football fields from which we have broadcast games.  A lot of you will remember the old field by the Intermediate School.  There was nothing unusual about this field, but the press box was a real gem.  It was set on...

EIAC All-Sports 2012

September 20, 2013
By

A big thank you to Mark Ferguson, athletic director at Batesville High School, for providing me with final statistics for last year’s EIAC.  There definitely is a pattern with both the boys and girls standings.  East Central and Batesville dominated the EIAC.  East Central was first in the boys and Batesville was first in...

Inconsistencies

September 19, 2013
By

There has been a lot of discussion on this year’s Reds baseball team.  One week they are the hottest hitting team in the majors and then they go a week without scoring a run.  Jay Bruce is hitting better against left hand pitchers than he is against right handed pitchers.  Last year he couldn’t...

Youth League Football

September 18, 2013
By

I know in the past I have shared my opinion of kids playing too many games at a very young age.  I still think, in most instances, they do.  However, I do like the Youth League they have here in Batesville for football.   You play a reasonable number of games and every kid must...

Play Offs

September 17, 2013
By

In two weeks we will know who will have that infamous one-game playoff to move to the next round in the World Series chase.  I like the idea of an expanded playoff, because when you play 162 games and you have one of the top records in baseball, you should be rewarded–especially the way...

Wrong Direction

September 16, 2013
By

I am sorry to say that my alma mater, Purdue University, is moving in the wrong direction athletically.  The football team at best is a disgrace.  With all the hype of the new coach, you would think that they would be ruling the Big Ten immediately.  After a great run in men’s basketball, last...

College Scene

September 11, 2013
By

As we move into mid September, many of you are spending your weekends following your favorite college football team. What started out to be simple rivalries in the Ivy League Schools has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry. I can’t believe someone like Alonzo Stagg could have imagined going to the University of Michigan...

Title IX

September 10, 2013
By

Although most people believe Title IX was created to equalize women’s opportunity in sports, it was actually brought into law by the 92nd U.S. Congress on June 23, 1972, to give women in the work place equal opportunities. The law was introduced by Indiana’s Senator Birch Bayh. Patsy Mink of Hawaii, a U.S. Representative,...
