November 25, 2013
By

Much has been debated about the situation with the Miami Dolphins.  We do not know all that went on in that locker room and probably never will.  However, the ordinary person has no idea what language goes on in any locker room much less one with athletes playing at the highest level of their...

Fifty Years Ago

Today is the anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.  Like most events of this magnitude, people my age remember where you were and what you were doing.  I was working at Purdue University as a graduate student, and I was just coming back to campus from one of the experimental farms.  My...

Rebuilding

November 20, 2013
By

Everyone knew that Purdue would not win a lot of football games this year.  No one realized how far the program dipped with Coach Hope at the helm.  Everyone, including me, wonders how he ever got the job even if he was a good friend of outgoing Coach Tiller.  From the looks of this...

Game Management

What a difference the 3-point shot has made in basketball.  This, coupled with the North Carolina State NCAA Championship Game when they fouled the opposition and made up a huge margin to win the game at the buzzer, has led to a total change in how you play the 4th quarter or second half...

Girls Basketball

Some time during this week most of the girls basketball programs in this area will be underway or very close to starting.  This always brings back the memory of those first girls’ teams in the 70’s when the IHSAA opened the doors for girls’ sports.  Rita Foster was the first recognizable name from southeastern...

Bill Erne

November 13, 2013
By

Whenever I hear a litany of statistics given during a break in an athletic contest, I think of Bill Erne.  From some time in the 50’s through the 80’s Bill was a fixture at many BHS athletic contests.  Even though Bill was handicapped, it didn’t keep him from keeping accurate, readable statistics.  We used...

Concussions

November 12, 2013
By

Have we over reacted to concussions in every level of sports?  I am not in any way questioning the need for quick and complete care for anyone who suffers a concussion.  I think the problem has become that all hits on the field of play now are considered concussions.  I am not advocating going...
