    If you truly transfer because of academics, then you shouldn't mind sitting out a year of athletics. That's the price to pay sometimes to get a better education.

    KHSAA allowing kids to play JV and practice is a great move on their part. It benefits the kids and the programs.

    Has nothing to do with academics and they never moved so not clearing is the right thing to do. I wish they would do it more often and maybe a lot of this would go away and make it an even playing field.

    These transfers are getting out of control and the state needs to step in and do something. I have to say I'm glad they finally said enough is enough in this case.

    HOWEVER, only time will tell if they stick to their guns

    So it sounds like Houston's family is not suing, based on the posts from @SSC and @Lawnboy13.

    Can you give us any info on what you have heard about the Macke suit, MU?

    Couldn't agree more!!

    Isn't this the same person that broke the news scandal on a certain baseball team a few years back?? I guess time does heal all wounds. I am sure all stops will be pulled to try to get their way, but I hope that KHSAA digs in and stands their ground on this!! There is more than meets the eye test with this one.

    Its def not for academic reasons. Otherwise, the Houston girl would have transferred too.

    I just think it is unfortunate the kids are put through this by their parents.

    Does Holy Cross have a "strings" program?

    For goodness sakes, it's high school sports. Who cares? The whole ordeal of having to sit out a year in high school is just absurd.

    The problem seems to be the khsaa is very inconsistent in their ruling, why get tuff now, let the the kids play and move on, a real head scratcher is a young man from Isiral moved to Covington and is at Holmes and they can't get him cleared, never bounced a ball the United States. I am sure the Macke's had their reason for going back to Highlands.

    IT would be the wild wild west if you allowed any transfer.

    The only people who care are Adults who care way to much about HS sports. If a kid wants to play somewhere else let him.
