LHSAA goes full retard

Advocate

So instead of recommending to keep the the system the way it is, the committee recommends to divide the 70 or so private schools into 5 divisions.

I can't help but think that the LHSAA is blatantly trying to destroy itself to force the private schools to separate.

This is going to be interesting, by which I mean "this is a major clusterfrick".


This waters things down so much that you'll be seeing 0-10 teams going to the playoffs and having to drive across the state to get ass-raped by West Monroe, Curtis, Evangel, etc.

The only thing I know about this are the few Moscona rants I've caught, but basically they are blowing up high school football in Louisiana because a handful of private schools are taking advantage of the system? Is this just mass grass roots stupidity or is someone actually benefiting from and manipulating the situation to split the LHSAA?

I have to imagine at some point the Catholic league says enough is enough and jets. Also in the recommendations is to have a private investigator show up whenever they want. Who do you think will get the brunt of the investigations?

You've read the hype, not the truth. Go look at all the schools caught up in recruiting violations that made the news this year. West Monroe, Helen Cox, etc. All public schools. And don't even get me started on Orleans Parish public schools. Karr is the biggest recruiter in the state.

A handful of private schools are taking advantage of the system more efficiently than public schools are taking advantage of the system.

These measures are an attempt to level the playing field.
Where the team you face in the playoffs has to follow the same rules concerning resindency as you do. Makes sense, if they can follow the guidelines. The LHSAA will find a way to screw it up.

Level the playing field? You realize about 80% of NFL talent in LA comes from the public schools right? The field is already level athletically. It's the coaching in pubic schools which is inept.

So, all the kids that go to private schools live in that district?

To be honest with you it's not about public vs private. It's about women principals that have no business having a voice in football meetings.

They're blowing up the system because a few public schools like Winnfield got butthurt that they were stuck in the same classification as John Curtis and Evangel, meaning the chances of winning a title were almost non-existant.

This is an outgrowth from long-term issues involving mainly Curtis and Evangel, who have been shuffled from classification to classification because no one wants to play them.


The issue has opened a whole barrel of additional issues.

One major one I feel needs to be addressed is letting non-football schools vote on issues that deal solely with football. Specifically, there are a lot of allegations that Class B and Class C schools were leaned on hard to vote for this proposal under threat of having their classes abolished.

Do people pay to go to public school?

In addition to that, there are allegations that this whole clusterfrick was done in part because the teachers opposed the governor's voucher program and the push toward charter schools.

The blurring of the lines here has made things an even bigger clusterfrick than on first glance, as you have schools which are traditionally seen as public, like Istrouma and Capitol, which could be classified with the private schools because they were turned into charter schools to avoid a state takeover.

What does it matter? The number of students at the school are relatively the same. Plus, you didn't address the issue that public schools overwhelmingly produce the elite level talent. Obviously the athletic talent is already even. Where do you look to next?

Add Byrd and Neville to those that would have to play in the Select group.
