    A thought for you

    I wonder if this has been thought out. So say that the whole Public/Private seperate championships played out. First off why would the Privates stick around with the KHSAA?
    If I'm a Private school I'm saying the heck with you all, if you don't want us then we will show you what dominant is. I would become a prep school and build a dynasty. I would now be in an Independant school where I could openly recruit without any reprecussions! I would make it a point to go into the feeder programs of those that turned their back on me and offer the farm to the top athletes. I would have Nike come in and endorse everything. We would put the Swoosh right in the middle of our new field that they paid for so they could advertise. I would take all the Nike Uniforms (home, home alternate, away, away alternate and special uni) and pust them to the community so they could see how much we were flourishing. I would push to be one of the teams that is on ESPN for the top High School games in the Nation. I would show the kids in the area that have never gotten away what the world looks like. Our school would be so dominant that we would have to turn away athletes etc etc etc. You catch the drift. Do you think that could be a reality if this were to happen? I never thought about it but a friend brought it up. I thought he made some good points that I hadn't thought about. If that could happen then I believe I would rethink my witchhunt if I were the ones trying to push this split!
    Just a thought for you.

    Good idea...but a prep school and a high school are two different animals.

    What is the difference? Can I still openly recruit since I'm not under the KHSAA? Can Nike still give us everything free etc? Can I become an academy like Oak Hill etc?

    Not since the late 90's. They win too much too, they should be banished
    So does Nike sponser them? Is that because they are an independant school?

    Have you ever noticed that there are all kinds of "prep schools" on the national basketball scene, but no one seems to take this approach in football? There is a reason for that ...
