The distance does matter when you are trying to make your point and your information is incorrect. Going up US 250 behind a horse and buggy can make 10 miles last for 25 minutes. The question isn't about Dover it's about the teams voting to add Dover. Much farther drives for some of them. Dover may have a short distance that the ECOL teams but it may be quicker for them to get to Marietta then it is for them to get to Mansfield Sr.The distance discrepancy is a glitch on the map app. It is about 63 mile but since they are possibly leaving I guess it doesn’t matter.
Those distances are not ideal but we really only have 1 option at this point and it is definitely shorter trips than the independent schedule of this past season and shorter than the ECOL.
There is little doubt Dover could be voted in. Yes votes would likely be NP, WH, Woo, Ashland for sure. Madison wants to start some weeknight contests at 4:30 and that cannot happen with Dover or NP. Mansfield is known for having bussing issues during the week after school which delays game starts to local schools. Lexington will probably vote no as they have been openly against going into a schedule that requires their students to be traveling past 10PM.
