I would question why a high school would agree to play them.

The MHSAA is counting COF as a real school so I assume that Brother Rice played their starters and took the game seriously.

Was going to ask the same thing. This team dropped off the face of the Earth. It sounds like they are nothing more than a homeschool team with some kids that probably aren't getting any schooling at all.

They played last week and are scheduled for three more games. There's been no indication that it's a school at all. Why someone doesn't stick a microphone in Jay Richardson's grill I have no idea.

Kids who thought there was going to be a school attached to the football team?

As P.T. Barnum once said, "there's no such thing as bad publicity."

USA Today: IMG Academy cancels penultimate national game after opponent's registration revoked

I believe he also said "there's a sucker born every minute."

I like this last quote from the article:


If nothing else, IMG Academy proved that it was more responsible and committed to playing opponents from legitimate academic institutions by calling off the Christians of Faith matchup.

Love that after basically going silent for the past few months they responded to articles written about them with a series of GIFs...Think they did have the record this year for having opposing teams pull out of scheduled games with them. And don't see anyone scheduling them next year even if they can somehow continue to take advantage of kids.

Agreed! It is like a bunch of high school kids running the twitter account...maybe it is?

The whole thing is just so confusing. Quickly checked out the twitter of one of their best players, #13. RB/WR from New York City who graduated from HS over the summer. I don't understand how he can play in Ohio.

The thing that is really interesting, is go to their Twitter thread, find the Instagram post that shows the players in class. Closely look at all the photos. It appears that they are holding their online classes in the free computer section of a local public library.

COF forfeited their final game at St. Frances Academy (Baltimore, MD) last night. Don't know what happened but apparently St. Frances only figured it out a couple hours after the scheduled kickoff. Judging by the video of their last game, COF should have ended this charade long ago. Hopefully the high school kids can get their education back on track.
