Very interesting to see high level coaches openly admit how terrible the product is.
Has Hiland ever benefited from girls basketball transfers?

Oh yeah. the past 3 years they had a girl from New Phila. who as a freshman led New Phila to the D1 regionals. Hiland is a 35 minute drive from New Phila. They also have had girls from West Holmes, who were all good players.

Total attendance is down about 15% from 30 years ago, despite 33% more games and 40% more seats. We've gone from selling out every game every year to averaging 50% empty.

The D1 semifinal featuring two suburban public schools yielding <8,000 definitely did not help the cause, either.

I went pretty much every year from the age of 9 or 10 until I left the state to go to grad school in '84, and I don't think I ever was able to buy a ticket from the box office. I learned to work the scalpers' market pretty young; it was the only way to get in if I couldn't get a ticket from one of the coaches at our school if they weren't there yet or had decided to take a game off and go get some pizza.

Thanks, would sure be nice to get that magic back but I think once it's gone it's gone.

I thought the attendance for this game would have been higher. They had almost that many last year in their semifinal match up.

Agreed. The Association may say that one of the purposes of interscholastic athletics is to "sponsor a sense of community" but they either don't mean it or they're powerless to encourage it.

So it's not coming back, and neither are the big crowds.

All this talk about the privates schools not having enough support and it ends up that the public schools are the reason why attendance was down.

I don't think kids like watching high school sports anymore.
I went to all 12 games,saw more kids playing on cell phones than watching games.

When public teams are assembled like Deer Park, why would the student body invest an entire day to support kids that they have no investment in (and vice versa). I’m guessing MSML—an opposite case in building a team—had plenty of support.

And Fizz is correct: despite the effort and commitment we saw amongst young people in Washington DC yesterday, the vast majority of kids in our society never leave their home any more. It’s way too much effort, and if it doesn’t involve them, they could care less. That type of kid wasn’t attending ANY games this year—even If they were played at their high school a mile-and-a-half away.

These d**n cellphones will be the downfall of Western society! Karl Marx said "Religion is the opiate of the masses". But nowadays, I'm thinking it may be Facebook...

The same argument applies to the community at large. Would I drive to Columbus to watch the neighbor's son I've been watching play in his driveway for the last eight years? You bet. But ten kids from out of town who happen to be wearing the school's name on their shirts? Forget it.

I feel like I'm sounding like my parents but when I was in high school we came out for basketball and football games in full force. It's very enjoyable the few times a year you play a team that still does. I totally agree kids don't watch games like they used to for the most part - I as well blame phones.

Solon's support for being D1 was embarrassingly low. Trotwood's was really low as well. All-around community attendance this week was rather weak except for a few rural/small town publics (Meadowbrook, MSML, PG, Lexington), Moeller and St. V's.

Did you see the press conference where Mike Leach said they'd be the end of humanity itself because eventually nobody'd look up from their phone long enough to even procreate?

Moeller's student section was super hype, but I'd expect that from a GCL school. I loved when Warren G. Harding used to play them & Elder in football. I may not ever see anything like The Pit again. That game brought the best out of both fan bases, I miss atmospheres like that. Many of today's kids have no idea.

In 2009, Warren G. Harding's fans outnumbered Columbus Northland's at the Schott. WGH made teh Final Four without their leading scorer, but that was a fun ride. My seats at OSU were awful though.

Dover kids really support well and won the golden megaphone as the best student cheering section for the 2nd straight year.
Dover adult fans seem to be more addicted to phones,I see them typing stuff,not watching the game for a couple seasons then they just stop coming to the games.
I think the loss of hometown newspapers has also hurt,we used to get a couple pre game stories for big games that I think got the community pumped up for the game,then a big game story and possibly another follow up story.

The local newspaper thing is so true. I miss the game stories and profile stories on the local kids. Not to mention box scores, statistical leaders, athlete of the week etc. It was always exciting to read about a friends kid or a neighbor who was profiled in the local paper.
