  1. Yes, I did. I don't understand why that makes you so angry. Again, life throws you curveballs at times, and CG is not immune. Why is it a good thing? I care about the strict integrity of the IHSAA state tournament, and what is means to actually participate in it. And that at times may require tough rules. Get used to it. You obviously don't.
  2. Sucks to be them, then. I still don't think they should be allowed to participate in the IHSAA state tournament with a schedule containing less than 5 IHSAA member schools. Life isn't fair sometimes. Get used to it.
  3. Hence the "behind a paywall" warning. So an IHSAA member could schedule all non-IHSAA opponents for it's regular season then mop up against the IHSAA schools during the state tournament. Sorry, doesn't pass the smell test for me.................
  4. In a $788 Million Defamation Settlement, Fox News Admits That It Spread False Claims About Election Fraud: https://reason.com/2023/04/18/in-a-788-million-defamation-settlement-fox-news-admits-that-it-spread-false-claims-about-election-fraud/?itm_source=parsely-api Meh, Fox probably made that $ from MyPillow advertisements.
  5. All fine and dandy until an accident on I-65 causes that 1.75 hour trip from McCutcheon to Portage to become a 3+ hour death march. No thanks. Or maybe the teams could meet about halfway and play their games at St. Joseph's College old football field?
  6. From a Q&A article by the Indy's Start High School beat writer, Mr. Neddenriep: https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2023/04/19/indiana-mr-basketball-voting-bias-ihsaa-boys-coaching-changes-all-stars-selection/70126970007/ (Note. Story is behind a paywall) Interesting. It is my contention that unless a school's 9-game regular season schedule contains at least 5 IHSAA member schools that school should be ineligible for the state tournament.

  8. Exactly. "Conference of (State) Champions".
  9. https://www.cato.org/blog/where-did-tax-dollars-go-federal-budget-breakdown Get ready for some pain, fellow citizens. And probably even more pain for your children and grandchildren.
  10. https://mises.org/wire/arbitrary-use-power-punishing-those-who-expose-not-so-secret-government-secrets Taibbi adds that the Post labeled him as a “gun enthusiast” as a means to further discredit him. Unlike Ellsburg, Texiera will not have Ivy League law professors representing him, nor will the editorial pages of the nation’s elite newspapers defend him. Indeed, the NYT has boasted about how it found the identity of the alleged leaker before government authorities did. David French, who recently became a columnist for the NYT and since has used his new journalistic perch to shill for unlimited American involvement in the Ukraine war, has condemned both Texiera and his defenders on Twitter, calling them “repulsive.” The alleged leaks, declares French, “can do immense damage.” Tom Nichols in The Atlantic has declared him to be a “narcissist” endangering America. In the past, elite media has defended leaks of government documents, especially when it is clear that government officials have been lying. Unfortunately, in this new age of progressive media, the press now plays detective for the government if the leaks come from the "wrong" people. Taibbi writes: Of course, one must ask what it means to be “endangering America.” The Pentagon Papers did not change the outcome of the war; indeed, by the time they were released the Nixon administration already was looking for a “peace with honor” way out of the conflict. If anything was endangered, it was the reputations of members of the Lyndon Johnson and Nixon administrations that had lied to Americans about the conduct and outcomes of the war. Likewise, the document leaks that came from Chelsea Manning, Edward Snowden, and Julian Assange did not place ordinary Americans – or even American military personnel – in danger of their lives. Instead, they exposed how American politicians, military, and executive branch officials have lied to Americans, all the while claiming their lies were necessary to “protect” America. Before going further with the government’s case against Texiera, we also should address the fact that members of the national security establishment have been leaking documents for years, but that is considered good because the political goals of the leakers are seen to be sacrosanct. Taibbi writes: The sad irony continues as the Post editorial board, which now apparently believes that democracy needs darkness – or at least properly-orchestrated media blackouts from the truth – has denounced the leak in an editorial. There will be no protections for Texiera, no appeals from the media, as nothing is permitted to stand in the way of the Biden administration’s proxy war against Russia. Writes Jordan Schactel: In other words, Texiera does not fit into the favored media category and so he must face the full wrath of the government for allegedly violating the Espionage Act (Section 793 of the Federal Code) and Section 1924, unauthorized removal of classified documents. (Note that both Biden and Donald Trump have allegedly violated Section 1924, but it is doubtful that either will be perp-walked for their transgressions.) Taibbi further notes that not long ago, the New York Times was willing to expose much more sensitive material and even partner with Julian Assange, something that one cannot even imagine today: As we saw with Alvin Bragg’s indictment of Donald Trump, prosecutors can slice up charges to create a large number of separate “crimes,” and then insist that the guilty party serve each sentence consecutively, so theoretically Texiera could be given an effective life sentence. A violation of Section 793 can carry a maximum 10-year sentence, while violations of Section 1924 have prison sentences of up to five years. You do the math. As Texiera disappears into the maw known as the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, one can be sure he will be held without bond and will be spending much of his pre-trial (and probably post-trial time as well) in solitary confinement. Medical and psychological researchers have documented the pernicious effects of solitary confinement, but one doubts Texiera will receive much sympathy on that front, especially from the groups that usually denounce such punishments, but are silent when someone from the wrong side of the political and social tracks is the victim. Texiera is charged with the same “crime” that is regularly committed by those favored by American political, media, and academic elites. Ironically, according to the New York Times, the information that he leaked might prove helpful to the Ukrainian cause, since it points out the dire situation that Ukraine faces at the present time: One would think, if one believes the “Democracy Dies in Darkness” sermons we hear preached by American elites, that the Biden administration and the Pentagon should be telling people the truth about how far-reaching American involvement has been in this proxy war, especially since Russia has extensive nuclear weapons. But those folks really don’t believe their rhetoric. Instead, Jack Texiera will soon disappear for good into prison, and, like Julian Assange who still languishes without trial, their names will be forgotten. Mr. Texiera is a hero, not a villian.
  11. Agreed. They could maybe compete in baseball and boy's soccer but not much else. Is this mostly due to lack of demand, tightfisted farmers not wanting to sell their land, or draconian zoning laws?
  12. How many IHSAA basketball titles have McCutcheon and Harrison won? Basketball is and always will be the dominate sport for NCC A.D.'s.
  13. No, I mean the Hoosier Heartland. It has been my contention that a school with the socioeconomic issues that Frankfort has can only reasonably field most of it's athletic programs at a level far below it's actual enrollment. For Frankfort that means a mid-size to large 2A school, which should fit in with the Hoosier Heartland.
  14. The Hoosier Heartland. But the NCC doesn't have to know that. Nor would they care.
  15. Agreed. Using a Parks & Recreation analogy Frankfort is Pawnee, Lebanon is Eagleton.
  16. No room for Frankfort in this new NCC? IIRC they were a charter member of the NCC, and have a higher enrollment than any other school in your Small Divisions other than Lebanon and Logansport.
  17. Somebody better start the hard sell on the Lafayatte Jeff A.D. Zionsville is another obvious school to court.
  18. BTW the press has confirmed this: https://www.kokomotribune.com/sports/sports-briefs-for-friday-april-14/article_1b4445c6-da57-11ed-b402-5f0a2db75166.html
  19. It would be earth shattering if Kokomo would leave the NCC. The rest of the conference would dissolve.
  20. It's obvious the A.D's from the other non-Tippecanoe county schools don't want the power in the NCC centered in Tippecanoe county, with it's (no longer) three member schools.
  21. So goes Kokomo, so goes the NCC. If an athletic conference can have a hear and soul it would be the city of Kokomo and it's Wildkats. Both WildKat basketball and football are currently on the upswing so it's no surprise if it's AD used his muscle to out an upcoming threat like Harrison.
