Re: Zion Williamson

I am near ZW's hometown and high school. Got to watch him play on occasion for Spartanburg Day. He has always had a rep of being only out for himself and lazy. Thus it would not surprise me that his college career could be over, even though his injury is not serious and is considered by many down he...

Re: Ten schools announce intention to leave Cross County Conference (CCC)

Competitive balance, enrollment balance, travel balance. I can understand the why, but achieving those goals thru conference realignment seems to be about as impossible as finding the treasure on Oak Island. Demographics in communities throughout Ohio are always changing, thus conference realignment...

Re: Seriously Reviving The SEOAL

The only schools within the old SEOAL footprint that are looking for a new or better conference affiliation are Logan, Marietta, and Warren. You might see an informal scheduling alliance among those schools but the old SEOAL schools who have moved on are happy with their new circumstances. As to loo...

Re: #5 Waverly vs #4 Greenfield McClain 2/22

Following Waverly from afar, no possible outcome of the game would be surprising. The game appears to have the most evenly matched teams of all the sectional games in SEO.

Re: 2019 Cincinnati Reds

Although I do not think Puig and Kemp will be with the Reds past the trade deadline, I am encouraged the Cincy front office has made the effort to improve the lineup, especially pitching. Will it be enough to get the Reds above a .500 finish, only time will tell, but spring training should be intere...

Historic HS football proposal reduces contact in N.J. to lowest ever - anywhere

Proposed rule change in New Jersey limiting contact in high school football practice to 15 minutes a week. I believe the rule in Ohio is/was no more than 30 minutes of contact practice per day: A groundbreaking new football rule is on its way toward bringing fewer players to the ground. The New Jers...

Re: 2018-19 Ohio State Buckeyes Men's Basketball

The Buckeyes (16-8; 6-7) were stunned at home on Thursday night, losing 63-56 to Illinois (10-15; 6-8). OSU trailed at both the half and obviously, the end of the game. CJ Jackson led the Buckeyes with 17 points. The victorious Fighting Illini were led by Trent Frazier and Ayo Dosunmo with 15 point...

Re: Your schools best team(s) ever!

Waverly I would say would be 2006 season probably one of best teams the schools ever had, also the last time they won the SOC I think you would have to include the DR Robinson Tiger squads of the very late 1980's. Record wise the Tiger squads of 1967-69 would have to be mentioned. 27-1-2 over that ...

Re: Could Parker be the next "Great SEO Hope" ?

Mr. Parker's chances of an OSU offer have improved with Ryan Day at the Buckeye helm. Day will not abandon a national recruiting strategy, but circumstances will dictate also having an Ohio strategy until he is more established. Parker appears to have the talent, character, and work ethic to earn an...

Re: What are your ideas on realignment for college conferences?

Although I long for the non ESPN college football landscape of 1975, my thoughts are that the major football schools are likely to break away from the NCAA and form their own governing body to facilitate the college football playoffs.
