Trade Deadlines

July 30, 2013
By

Baseball’s trade deadline is here. This means if your favorite team is not in competition for the playoffs, some of your high-priced players will be gone. Instead of re-signing them, the team trades them for cheaper minor leaguers or first-year players who have no bargaining power yet. If you are in contention, you buy...

Dave Porter

July 29, 2013
By

When Dave Porter died recently, he left behind quite a legacy in coaching. Dave was not your typical high school basketball coach. First of all, he was in his thirties before he got his college degree, so he started coaching later than normal. Secondly, he became a legend even though he coached in very...

Homer Bailey

July 25, 2013
By

When Homer Bailey pitched his second no-hitter earlier this month, he joined a pretty elite list of pitchers. I think this list is under 30 names in all the years we have had Major League baseball. He has a ways to go to catch fellow Texan, Nolan Ryan, however, who is credited with seven...

Happier Thoughts

July 24, 2013
By

Batesville swimming is off and running for another summer. This program has been a success story for a long time. Nearly 100 kids have fun every summer swimming for the local club. They not only have all these kids on the team, but most of them actually score in most of the meets. Not...

Scheduling

July 24, 2013
By

Yesterday I wrote about what is happening in scheduling in Indiana because of the Class System in school classifications. Coaches do not want to lose the natural local rivalries, but are sometimes required to do so as to keep up with expectations of their programs. This is happening a lot in this area. It...

Another Season

July 23, 2013
By

The 2013-14 high school athletic season is ready to kick off. Some, like golf, get underway on August 2nd. Don’t forget that this year the EIAC will add Connersville and Rushville, so I would assume most of the bugs have been ironed out in the scheduling of all sports. Football and basketball obviously took...

Pick-Up Game

July 22, 2013
By

When we were kids, we could always find some way to play a game of baseball. First, of course, you tried to round up enough kids to play some kind of regular game. If this didn’t work, then you went to your imagination and found some way to get a game going. One way...

NBA Draft

July 19, 2013
By

It was amazing to most experts how the NBA draft unfolded this past month. Few thought that IU would have two of the first five draft picks. This did not surprise me as much as how far down some of those “sure bets” were dropped. Kentucky’s Noels was the big drop for most, but...

Marvin Wood

July 18, 2013
By

Marvin Wood coached Milan in 1954. If you ask most of his players, they will tell you it was his style of coaching that allowed them to win the state. He didn’t try to reinvent the wheel, but he fine tuned the one that was already in place. He wanted to play man-to-man defense,...

What do they want?

July 17, 2013
By

Do you ever wonder what it takes to keep some school’s athletic boosters happy? Some fans crumble when their coach wins at an 80% level because he/she doesn’t win the sectional every year. I think I recall a couple of coaches like this. Others grumble because he/she doesn’t win games by a large enough...
