Empty threats from select schools to leave LHSAA


All this talk about selects leaving LHSAA and
forming their own association is pure bull.

There are about 80 select schools. Not all selects
would choose to leave the LHSAA, so how many would
actually leave? And where would they go?

Most high school football fans would not care if
selects left. The talk about selects providing
the bulk of LHSAA revenue is not true in my
opinion but if you have figures to prove
otherwise then provide them.

My guess is that fewer than half of selects
would choose to leave. I live in North Louisiana
and from my knowledge of this area any select that
left LHSAA would have a VERY hard time filling
out a 10 game schedule. The logistics of travel,
time missed from school and finding quality
opponents would be overwhelming.

Considering the margin of vote for the split I
think it will not be rescinded in the forseeable
future. The biggest objection to select schools
is not about recruiting but about the way they
are able to get their players and the area they
are able to get them from. A good example is
providing scholerships. This is a good thing
if a select student is provided a scholership
because they have academic qualifications.
But information about scholerships is a closely
guarded secret with selects so essentially they
operate under their own rules. Would somebody
tell us how many John Curtis football players
on their 2012 championship team were on
scholership? Nobody knows? That's my point.

The split will stay. An adjustment should be
made in the divisions of selects in the playoffs
but how do you divide up 80 schools into fair
divisions?

Selects won't split because not enough of them
will agree to do it. So let the "Biggies" go
their own way if they think they have have enough
appeal to go national or even regional. This will
be the end of them. Good riddance.

I am from Winnfield. It was hard to see one of the
best teams in Winnfield's football history get
beat by one of the best teams that money could
buy - yes, John Curtis - in 2011. And for those
that count heads Winnfield had about 4 times as
many fans there as John Curtis. YEAH, SOUR GRAPES.

Have a great day!

You could have put this shitty post in the other thread. You didn't need to start a new one.

No trophy but that shoots down the argument
that selects outdraw non-selects.

What are these "scholerships" you keep referring to?

No, it just proves that one non-select school out draws one select school. Nothing less, nothing more.

One public school outdrawing a select school means that the argument is dead?

I guess we can ignore those New Orleans HS games where the Catholic League has a full house and the public schools have 5 fans, then.
