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,...

Starting Football Programs

September 9, 2013
By

Two of the areas’ young coaches are learning how hard it is to either start a football program from scratch or revive one which has taken its lumps for several years. In the case of a new program, like OA, you will fight the numbers game. When your enrollment hovers below 200, you are...

Latin Ball Players

September 6, 2013
By

The Latin American ball players are much more involved in the drug allegations over some of their counterparts in MLB. Part of this is a language barrier and a lack of good advisors to explain to them what all these rules mean. However, some of it is the age-old “how can you accuse me...

A-Rod

September 5, 2013
By

I am sure by now you are aware of the saga of the Yankee’s Alex Rodriquez (A-Rod) and his continuous struggle to prove or disprove his involvement with PED’s. Personally, I am like a lot of Americans and dislike the Yankees. The Yankees are so intent on qualifying for this year’s playoffs that they...

High School Girls Sports

September 4, 2013
By

How many can remember when Title XI burst on the scene in the 1970’s? All schools scrambled to try to find a way to meet the equal opportunity for women as compared to their male counterparts. This year at Batesville High School the girls’ soccer team had 50 girls come out for the sport....
