Well said. I do love this debate. Much more heated "back in the day" before the success factor. Was the Chief part of the banter back in the day? It would be great to have all of us get together and have an annual "bump up the P/P" GID Conference. Dead serious. Maybe have it downtown Indy before one of the state finals (pick the sport) Think of the people we could invite - Muda69, DrivinT, Warren05, Olympian06, Impartial Observer, Footballking16, PhjIndy; Lysander, Chief Flying Bear,- add to the list. We can have Bobref and Coach Nowlin keep order. I can have a side discussion with Footballking16 and PHJIndy about the advantages that Cathedral has over Roncalli :).
And here I thought we all agree back in the day that it was social-economic conditions that was the main reason for success. Like there is no way a team from Kokomo could beat a team from Zionsville right?
Median average income city of $104K will always beat a team with an average income of $36K.
Or maybe it is just how good is the Program. Yea, that was my argument back in the day. Might need to go with that one. Or could it be more than just one reason? I mean let's look at one school and try and determine their success in one sport verses another. Pick Cathedral for example. How many State Titles in Football verses Basketball? Exactly how many Sectionals has Cathedral won in boys basketball the last 15 years? I think none (PHJindy will correct me if I am wrong). Program, Program.
