These lulls in the conversation are not a good thing.
More schools are following the lead of traditional powers and playing games on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. If we had enough qualified officials to go around that wouldn’t be an issue. The marquee games usually get the best refs, so its common to hear complaints about whistles from parents and coaches of the up-and-coming and struggling programs.
Scheduling was a topic of conversation a year ago, but it seems little has changed.
Exposure is another thing schools need to consider. It’s hard to get a headline when you’re always competing for space with Yorktown, John Jay, Bronxville, Mamaroneck and Pleasantville.
