December 18, 2015
By

There are 40 Bowl games this year in college football.  Since there are less than 160 teams playing Division I football, more than half of them made a Bowl game.  I think 3 teams actually have losing records for their Bowl appearance this year.  Why then do we need 40 Bowl games?  I think...

Crazy Routines

December 17, 2015
By

I was reading an article written by Zac Keefer of the Indianapolis Star the other day and found some really unusual “training” procedures.  In the first case, Amer’e Stoudemire, and NBA player, soaks his body in red wine in his bath tub.  He says after taking a pounding in an NBA game it is...

Open Enrollment

December 16, 2015
By

In Indiana and many other states, high school students can change schools if they feel that school offers a better chance of improving the education they can receive.  Some of you might know that this process has helped organizations like the IHSAA fend of groups who wanted a separate state tournament for non-public schools. ...

When Lou Alcindar decided to change his name back in the 80’s, it did cause some heads to turn and tongues to wag.  His reason, of course, was because of his change in religion.  Can you imagine what kind of reaction this would bring about today?  According to one of our presidential candidates, he...

Congratulations to Eric Heppner who announced last week that he is retiring as the Batesville football coach.  In his 20 years at the helm of the Batesville Bulldogs his teams won 148 games.  When you consider that you are only guaranteed 10 games in a year, this means that Eric won approximately 70% of...

Sports vs. Laws

December 9, 2015
By

It seems like every day when you pick up a newspaper or follow the news by any outlet, someone is being accused of domestic violence.  Unfortunately, most of these reports involve well-known athletes.  This type of violence is never justified, but when it becomes a pattern the leagues involved must be doing more to address...

Batesville Building Plan

December 8, 2015
By

Batesville is planning to remodel part of their high school and add to the present facility.  It is hard to believe that the high school is nearly 50 years old.  When this project gets underway next spring, most of the construction (as I understand it) will be on the East side of the present...

Athletic Trainers At All Levels

December 7, 2015
By

It is becoming quite obvious that we need an athletic trainer available at every level of amateur sports.  If the games are sanctioned by a school, then there should be a trainer at the games.  The obvious problem is “can the school pay the bill for the trainer?”  Also, are there enough qualified trainers...
