GCL Coed Shakeup?

Seems to be the theme this week...

Hearing rumblings that the ADs want to bring the GCLC back to one division, but RB & PM aren't happy about it and threatening to leave.

Hard to believe that 2 founding members would leave.

Anyone have insight as to why they aren't for it? Seems like it would make scheduling easier in the round-robin sports. I know travel would be an issue, McNick -> Carroll, and other similar trips, every year is trek, but it was one division before Fenwick & Carroll joined. Why the uproar now?

If they do leave, is the GCLC going to stay at 6? Add Summit? Lehman? Springfield Catholic? Royalmont (if they ever join the OHSAA)?

Where will RB and PM go? GMC obviously won't have them. ECC only wants D1 schools. CHL won't have them. SBAAC won't have them. SWOC? CMAC, MVC? Make a 3 team league with Winton Woods?

I'm not sure what difference it makes if its One division or two. All the teams play each other as it is. In football once, alternating home/away each year, in basketball they play teams in there own division twice and the other division once. (10 games) Mcnick has been traveling to Carroll for years in all sports. Its not that big of a trek maybe one hour (I've done it many times) Am I missing something? Are you talking about something else?

That's my point. I don't see the big deal either. Not sure why RB & PM would leave the league over having to play Carroll, Alter, CJ & Fenwick twice a year in the round robin sports. Unless travel(cost) is the issue. Adding 4 trips from McN, RB, PM, Badin to Carroll, CJ, Alter, Fenwick in every round robin sport will add up....I guess...but to leave a league you've been a member of since it started??? I'm confused, has to be more to it. Any RB/PM people have insights?

Doesn't make sense since they are already traveling to the Dayton area for Mens/Womans volleyball, soccer, softball, baseball, maybe track, golf, lacrosse etc. Whats one more trip? By the way I hadn't heard of this and although I'm not as close to the situation as I had been in the past 8 years I'm not sure its legit. Where did you get this news?

It has nothing to do with travel, because they all play each other now. You have to understand this, PM and RB battle for last place in the central year after year. One of them gets to brag that they finished 3rd in the central, the other one finishes last. In their mind 3rd out of 4 sounds better than 6th or 7th out of 8.

What other logical reason could it be for them to be opposed to this?

Lets just say horse's mouth and leave it at that.

I am curious to hear what the alumni and boosters of RB & PM have to say about leaving the GCL.

Would McNick join the SBAAC larger school division?

I highly doubt the Archdiocese would let this go down. It seems to me the AD's suddenly forgot who they really work for.

McNick wouldn't go anywhere they will stay in the COED . If RB/Purcell would leave my guess is that they would still be on the schedule. RB/Purcell have to play someone. Not sure the SBAAC would want them (Mcnick) other than football where McN would still be ok. McNick would (most years) be pretty dominant in the SBAAC, especially in Womans sports.

My bad, thought this was the GWOC shake-up thread.

However, perhaps it stills applies to the GCL... everyone is a racist these days so why not the Catholics too.
