Weird Endings

November 8, 2013
By

Normally you would expect that the two best teams in baseball would bring their A-game to the World Series.  The first five games of the 2013 series proved to be just the opposite.  One game ended on an obstruction play at third base allowing the winning run to score for the Cardinals.  Not to...

Fall Successes

November 7, 2013
By

Batesville High School had quite a fall season in all sport categories.  Football went 9-1 with a perfect EIAC conference winning record.  The girls cross country team made it to the semi-state and had a 7-week undefeated stretch to start the season.  The boys cross country team made it to the regional.  BHS boys...

World Series

November 6, 2013
By

It is November, and I guess the World Series is over.  I lost interest when the Reds lost the wild-card game.  I still advocate playing the season games in a 2-week shorter period of time.  The old timers could play double headers, and they weren’t even making $100,000 a year.  It seems if you make...

Private vs. Public

November 4, 2013
By

Only you as a parent can decide what type of school is best for your children.  Whichever you choose should be one that offers your child the best possible education.  Neither type of school has a corner on this solution.  Either could be the best choice for your child.  That is not what this...

Memorable Game Broadcasts

November 1, 2013
By

When you sit down to broadcast a sporting event, you never know what kind of day it is going to be.  Marty Brennaman is hosting a reunion with some members of the Duke/Kentucky game in the NCAA Tournament where Chris Laettner of Duke sank an impossible winning basket.  I am sure Marty knew it...

Certified Teacher vs. Lay Coach

October 31, 2013
By

With the number of sports that a school offers today and with the limited number of faculty members willing or able to coach, it has become quite common to hire lay coaches.  Many people worry about who a school might hire to coach their child.  In schools the size of Batesville almost all the...

Mercy Rule

October 29, 2013
By

By now everyone has probably heard about the high school football game in Texas that wound up 91-0.  Some parent on the losing team has brought some type of legal action against the coach for “bullying”.  I have not read the legal papers, of course, so the exact nature of the action is speculation on my...
