Here we are in the second week of March and we are still wondering whether spring is really going to come this year.  Just last week at this time we were still dealing with a March snowstorm.  Two  years ago we had 80 degree days already.  In just one week it will officially be spring...

Selection Committee

March 10, 2014
By

The teams that make the field for the NCAA tournament are always controversial in one aspect or another.  There is a way to take all the human bias out of it but I don’t think it has a leg to stand on.  Power conferences have their post conference tournaments to make money so they...

Are They Crazy?

March 4, 2014
By

I thoroughly enjoyed the recent Winter Olympic Games.  I am still amazed at what some people will endure in the name of a sport that affords them the chance of winning an Olympic medal.  Sliding down an ice covered track at 80 mph on a glorified hubcap (luge) is one of those events.  I...

Athletic Code

March 3, 2014
By

Every high school today must have an athletic code in writing or they will be open to all kinds of court proceedings.  The olden days of the principal handling each case as he sees it cannot stand up in court today.  Most schools will upgrade their codes on a regular basis to keep up...

February 28, 2014
By

Recently I learned that Curt Clawson is running for a congressional seat in Florida vacated by a congressman who was forced to resign.  Curt has always had a flare for doing things in a dramatic way.  His entry into this race is no exception as witnessed by his Super Bowl add to announce his...
