Everyone keeps saying that this issue "needs to be addressed"...

Page 5 of Is the way to address this to simply kick the privates out? What kind of message does that send? Advertisement Last edited by 98NCCalum; Sep 21, 05 at ... 74 comments | 2267 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Disagree.

    Although potentially all public schools are effected athletically because nearly all would have some players added to them if Private schools ceased to exist, I would not say any have been impacted to any great degree.

    That is what I think.

    Public school single A basketball in NKY has been weak for a while and it has nothing to do with private schools.

    They are, but I can't think of how they have been harmed in any real way competitively by private schools.

    OKAY, you have confused me. You said they were against the proposal but they are one of the sponsoring schools.

    If I did, I didn't mean to.

    Just for clarification Llloyd is in favor of the proposal, but I don't know why.

Would that be a double standard being employed?
    Where here have I asked Dayton, Bellvue or Danville for this matter to get more competive and compete with Trinity. Again you anaylzye these things as apples and oranges and they are not similar.

    Saying a school of similar size should be able to compete is one thing, to tell a schools 4 times smaller to compete is a whole different issue.

Now obviously they are sending letters to middle school kids in catholic schools but why do coaches attend certain games and talk to certain kids after those games, why not talk to the whole team? Because you don't want the whole team but you sure do want that good player.

    In the public schools those players automaticly go to the high school. But if a coach went to another middle school and talked to a kid people would raise the roof. But the privates can go to several middle schools and talk to several kids. So what you have many times is an all-star team.

    A private school coach can't go to a public school and talk to the players and that goes vice versa with a public school coach. I really don't know where you get your information.

    The difference between Holy Cross and Cov. Cath. is smaller than the difference between Holmes and St. X.

    NCC might get kids from those cities, but how many actually ever attended the public feeder system in any of those cities and how many who go to NCC are Catholic?

    I really don't think any school in NKY is really hurt by any private school. Most kids who attend private school have been in the Catholic school system from a younger age. Only a very small portion decided to switch to private school system entering High School.

    But not near the difference HC and St.X. Plus Holmes is a bad example when it comes to school enrollment due to the drastic changes in student class sizes from freshman-senior year.

    Holmes is the perfect example they are class AAAA and have to compete against St. X.

    Look I don't support any of these proposals, however, don't tell us the reason it is a bad idea is that HC can't compete with much larger catholic schools.

    My best guess would be Ludlow. Typically most kids from Ludlow attend the public school, but then quite a few of them head off to Park Hills or Latonia or wherever else...at least that's what the Ludlow fans will tell you.


    EDIT: I don't think Ludlow is really a great example, it's just the best one that I could come up with, and probably the most reasonable example in NKY. FWIW, I don't think there are many schools that are dramatically effected in NKY, and I have a hard time believing there are many in the state.
