Okay, if that's the case then the SVSM authorities that be need to man up and state the true reason rather than dance around it like some half-@$$ed two bit politicians.Now to the elephant in the room. The rivalry was stopped for one reason. The same person who ended the NCL and the relationships with all of those schools. Until that person moves on don’t expect any of those previous relationships to be repaired. I don’t fault the Irish. I watched this entire scenario developed since 2003. There are many factors but getting your players beaten down with injuries before the playoffs makes no sense. Yes it is true their could be a post season D2 matchup in 2022. I suspect the Irish will drop down to D3 in 2023. Hoban and STVM rosters have philosophical differences. The Irish don’t have a Pee wee system (5 different teams) titled Armour practicing at their facilities or players from 5/7 different counties dotting their Rosters. Hoban have very deep pockets and now field a D1 college prep academy type program. You can’t blame the players But the philosophy has all 26 schools in Summit and other area programs on guard to secure their talent. It has changed high school football for the time being in Summit and Stark county. Hoban fans will deny it or come on here attack me but they all know the truth. Folks I have been around this situation at the grass roots level since 2003. I don’t care what the ABJ scribes write my eyes don’t deceive me. If it walks like a duck then it’s a duck. Stopping this series is not about adult ego’s or students losing the experience of the rivalry. It comes down to down to common sense.
