I remember a period of time when these two schools played in everything, then SVSM dropped Benedictine in basketball so they could play a more national schedule. Bitterness from that may perhaps be...

While I think that the way you've connected the dots from "separation of church and state" to vouchers for all students is a stretch, if we go this route it would only be logical if state and Federal...

I've actually pointed out Pareto to this guy several times and he usually has no response. I even pointed it out to him that it appears in every level of competitive sports, including MLB, NBA, NFL,...

If I coach a team, and a kid has character issues, I have no obligation to put him on the roster even if he's talented enough to warrant a spot. A school can't be sued for a coach that chooses not to...

To counter a point I read earlier in this thread but don't care to to look for at the moment, even the best private schools have down years.

Not "above," but not a good fit with those schools. Maybe their long-time (but recently dormant) rivalry with Maple Heights might be worth salvaging, but not if it means also adding trips to Lorain...

I certainly don't have my finger on the pulse of the Mahoning Valley, but it seems like there is a lot of politics revolving the AAC and particularly the sport of football. That might be why Harding...

Warrensville Heights has a "Notre Dame deal" with the LEL it looks like (although for significantly different reasons than ND). They're still definitely a member of the league, however both sides...

He was the athletics chaplain for years and years. Beyond that, I'm not sure what his title was within the actual abbey.

I still have a really hard time believing that they would do this, on a wide-scale basis, for the benefit of football. Do you at least have some evidence that it's happening?

This is probably the silliest thing I've read here. Sillier than the allegation that MAC schools make kids stay an extra year in 1st grade so they're bigger in high school.

Look up the Pareto Principle (or the 80-20 Rule). It's actually pretty interesting, but it seems to imply that even if private schools were somehow "neutralized" or even taken out of the equation,...

Taking it a step further, trying to make the divisions more competitive is a far cry from "giving everyone a trophy." That's taking the argument to an extreme. It's akin to asking Big Red fans and...
