Come on now, this is a bit ridiculous. According to Sagarin, the Big Ten East is the 3rd best "conference" in the nation, ahead of the Big XII, both Pac-12 divisions, and the SEC East.

Agreed. It's the semifinals and championship games that need to be more geographically spread around the country. Indianapolis is an obvious choice and they will be hosting a title game in a few...

I know that this isn't a popular opinion, but how is the playoff supposed to be fair when all of the "neutral" sites are in the South and West? In the first 10 years of the system (including the...

I love the Buckeyes, but they don't deserve a playoff spot this season based on their resumé and regardless of what happens next week. I won't be upset if they don't get the nod.

I'm more surprised that the NCL hasn't adjusted divisions for basketball to put VASJ (and CCC) into the top division.

Fair enough, but my extreme example was still instructive. Because of how closely the state report card correlates with student demographics, I think it's safe to argue that even schools that "fall"...

You're making the assumption that these "failing" schools are not already increasing their students' level of competence. Since you've shifted the goalposts a bit, I think it's important to focus on...

I'm sure you've attended a high school basketball game or two over the years and so you'd know it's all fair game for student sections. "Cheaters" is pretty tame, actually.

Exactly my point. Firestone has strong programs and many of the elementary school gifted/advanced programs feeding it (and other high schools) is strong as well. The issue, of course, is that because...

I'm not "pissed" that Benedictine has struggled against a Catholic school that has been caught cheating (likely only the tip of the iceberg) and gives all Catholic schools a bad name. :shrug:

Let's not play the academics card here, please. There are at least a half dozen public high schools in Summit County that offer academic programs that are at least as strong as Hoban's.
