Recently at the Ripley County Hall of Fame Banquet I was able to relive many memories from the days when I was coaching basketball at Batesville. John Galle was inducted into the Hall, and I sat a the table with John’s family which included Bill Wanstrath. John is an accountant and works in Indianapolis....

Can You Remember?

May 8, 2013
By

How many of you remember going to practice in high school with your clothes and shoes in a white cloth bag or pillow case? If you were “rich”, you might have had a crude gym bag. Most kids’ practice gear included a plain white T-shirt. We did not get those fancy practice outfits you...

If you can figure out what goes on in the mind of a teenager, you can make a mint by writing a book about the process. Why can some kids go to the line in the last 10 seconds of a game and write beautiful music with the rippling of the nets while another...

Why They Leave

May 6, 2013
By

There has been a lot of talk recently on the mass exodus of Indiana basketball talent from the state’s high schools to out-of-state colleges. I have been quite vocal on this exodus. It really grips me that Purdue and IU get most of their star players from states other than Indiana. IU did have...

By

This is the day before the famous Kentucky Derby is to be run. I have been a race fan for a long time, and I still enjoy going to the track several times a year. I am one who is glad Indiana does not allow TV betting or I am afraid I would be...

More Equaling

By

Yesterday I gave you a glimpse of what the Ohio Athletic Association is dealing with in the area of private school enrollments. A few years ago there was a movement to totally take them out of the association and have a private vs. public dual system. In other words, Moeller could not compete against...

By

How many of you are following the Ohio Association of High Schools and their proposal to try to put private schools and public schools on level playing ground? This proposal figures the private schools enrollment based on the entire field of school districts where students come from to enroll in that private school. This...

Olden Days

April 29, 2013
By

I was reminiscing about how it used to be when I was a kid growing up on a farm, and what it is like today. Most kids today either have a part-time job or they spend a lot of time on some electronic device. I spent my time doing farm chores and/or working at...

Greener Grass

I know I have commented on this before, but it keeps coming up. Why do athletes think going far away from home is going to make their college experience better? If the Michigan players who came from Indiana had decided to play their college ball in Indiana, any of the Indiana colleges would have...
