Scheduling

July 24, 2013

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 is still better than the football system in Ohio which requires you to accumulate points to make the playoffs. If you do not play large schools, you can’t make the playoffs even if you go undefeated. This means if you are a larger school in a conference, you are penalized for playing your conference teams. This has broken up several conferences in the Cincinnati area. Anderson, with Jeff Giesting as head coach, fights this every year. They are a small school in a large category in Ohio. They won the state when they were the large school in a smaller category. Oh, what a few students will do for you! This is minor compared to what is facing athletic programs all over the USA, though. The emergence of club sports may eliminate high school sports soon if states do not get help from the state associations quickly. These sports clubs would make their own rules, and thus, do almost anything to attract athletes. They might even pay kids to join their club. I understand this is happening in several states with California leading the way. High school kids get agents and are promised a quick jaunt to the pros. This is really scary.
