Celebrating Forty Years of Title IX

Plenty of good has come out of Title IX, right? Making sure there are equal opportunities and equitable budgeting were the intent.

What about the unintended consequences? We've seen plenty, haven't we?

Mike Drago of the Reading Eagle reminds us what it's done to Pennsylvania high school basketball here.

Oh, and before you send Gloria Allred after me, you should know: I don't dislike girls. I've raised two of them and have driven all over creation watching them play soccer, softball, field hockey and lacrosse.

I'm all for girls playing sports, and getting an equal shake at everything. I insist on it, in fact.

It's just sad that we've out-thought ourselves on this one and now suffer the unintended consequences.

Thanks, TF!

Remember the "good old days" when we'd try to figure out call-ups by calling buddies from around the state, buying newspapers from Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, etc.?

Good Bad news! Those days are back!! TISCA has agreed not to post call-ups. You'll have to wait for the official UIL call-ups list this time around.

Enough already! It's results time!!!!!
