There's just no denying it. But this culture has been present even when they were still good at football. It's not about attracting more Akron students as much as it's the surrounding cities being better at football AND coaching.
Well when Marhofer Chevy is one of, if not THE, biggest donors to your school, that's going to happen. That usually happens around POWWOW - Which is WJ's annual alumni auction. They have done that for years. Nothing new.

Now that girls can grab a bit of this Jesuit education there is the new type of family from all over NEO that want the school on par with an elite prep school and maybe are less welcoming to those from different back grounds.
Hudson's kids chant, "...you're gonna work for us some day!!", the agrarian communities get to hear, "Start your tractors!!" everywhere they go. It's just noise. Kid stuff.

You can't answer the question. That says everything. That and your obsession with the word idiot. That's what people say when they can't defend their position.

You are the official “fake news” of Yappi.

You have no proof or you would have posted it. I have asked you for 2 days to clarify or answer your allegation of schools paying athletes and giving special favors in the classroom. You said it, So back it up with facts or shut your pie hole.

I believe you are plagiarizing the "fake news" label that was given to you by me months ago. No surprise there either.

-That was started by Trump.

-I’ve proven you wrong about your “diversity” post.

-You’re just too easy to rile up.

It’s simple..you’re just an idiot.

What was wrong about the diversity post? You posted a picture of a new program claiming to want diversity. Ok that's great and I acknowledged that. But the problem is still there and not improving. All you have to do is look on the field, court and diamond as I said. It's a tough issue for Walsh due to their location and demographics. And the fact that many public schools around them have improved dramatically in the athletic programs while offering a great education, Woodridge, Stow & Hudson as have been mentioned before.

You haven't answered anything except that you can spell idiot. Calling someone an idiot does not make a point. It may make you feel better but it only shows your inability to express yourself.

I can't decide if I am more surprised that this thread has 10 pages worth of content or the fact Walsh isn't any better than it was last year.

Oh well. It almost feels like they need to gut it all but I am not sure they care enough to do so.

It seems odd that the school would make the commitment to the improvement of the facilities yet not be concerned with the quality of the product. I think some changes are probably forthcoming, after the season.

I wonder if the school initiated the change or the donors came forward and said "here you go, do something please."

But I agree. What changes though? AD dismissed? Barb Salata is Karl Ertles right hand lady. He hand picked her for the AD position. I find it hard to believe he will tell her to walk.

Does a coach change do anything to help bring talent in? Unless you are bringing in a Rotsky type coach, I don't see it.

Oh God no, you used the "R" word.

Already received multiple DM's regarding the R word.

Just to clarify, I am not asking for Walsh to go after Rotsky - they won't fork over the cash he demands. I am advocating for someone who will hit the pavement and dare I say, recruit what Walsh has to offer.

*This is IF Walsh decides to make a change*

I would be fine with Scott and the staff staying as long as change were to happen elsewhere.

They might want to lure the coach across the street back. It looks like he is doing really good things this year.

I think that ship has sailed. Bridge has burned. Could be wrong though.

One thing is for sure - Dan would not be okay with the losing going on if he was in charge. He took his lumps last year but it looks like he is getting his kids and they are buying in.

CVCA has always been open to diversity. That sure does help.

Brock Jones easily could have gone to CVCA, and it actually would have been more in line with his family's faith. Someone or something got him to the other side of the street. He didn't graduate so very long ago. I'm sure there are other recent examples, even with the program in a funk. Is there a common thread ?

Brock Jones was at CVCA for Jr High. He had a kid named Utley that was in front of him there at RB.

You would hope. It’s sad to see Walsh go down the tubes like that. They just beat STVM and Hoban in 2014..

His older brother, Chase, attended Walsh. Might help explain why.

If they could get Vassalotti at Walsh, he could turn things around pretty quickly.

No one transferred to CVCA, not even after the wrestling fiasco. The majority of CVCA'S current team has been there since 7th grade.

I can't imagine Vass coming to Walsh without a sweet deal like the one Boarman had when he came back to SVSM, allowing him to continue his STRS employment while he coaches at a private. I can't see APS being down for him being their primary sports administrator while coaching at Walsh. Great coach, good fit, too many hurdles.

Larlham is not coming back across Wyoga Lake Road. That bridge is beyond burned.

Walsh has had three coaches in its entire existence. They won't do anything hastily. The process that resulted in Beigie getting hired was deliberate and detailed and they went with the guy that was dedicated to the school that they thought could follow in the footsteps of Ricco and Rardin and be there 20 to 30 years. This isn't a place like Massillon where the coach gets canned every time the boosters and fans get riled up.

This appears to be a case of the "Jimmies and the Joes" rather than bad coaching. I don't hear complaints about a lack of discipline, bad play calling or poor technique. It could plausibly be a situation where Beigie isn't the type of guy kids want to play for and that comes back to him, but it seems to me that it goes deeper to the perception of the school outside of its present established community and that's a PR problem well beyond the fault of the head football coach.

Long story short - Scott's hands are tied by the administration. He is playing checkers while every other surrounding school is playing chess. He has no help.
