Happy Father's Day to all the guys out their who are fortunate enough to have kids and for all those coaches out there that fill that role and become father figures for their players that don't have a real dad in their life.  

I got like 5 kids.

Amen, not only fortunate to have kids but also 5 grandkids with 3 grandsons in the military at present time.  But more importantly,  those coaches fill such an important void in their players lives as many of the young men who play sports are fatherless today.  A tremendous blemish on our society as our leaders don't emphasize that situation enough and give credit to what coaches contribute to it.   Bless all of the coaches out there on Fathers Day as many have to balance that role with their own children.

    • I can get behind some version of this idea. Want to transfer to a school you're not zoned for? Show a minimum G.P.A., or state an interest in a program available at the desired school that's not available at the current school. If both schools offer football, then football can't be the reason for transfer.  Of course, the "equity" monsters would fight it vigorously.
    • And something like this could probably only work, if at all, with the larger counties. Although I'd love to see the look on Jesse's face when the Madison County District School Board designates James Madison Preparatory High School (the only other public high school in the County other than Madison Co. H.S.) as the Magnet Football School. 
    • And what self-respecting school and athletic department wants to be considered a "have not"?  I don't think it would ever pass the smell test' but you're thinking outside the box; that's good. 
    • "Just once I would like to see a couple of these kids say that they are transferring to another school due to the other school having a better academic rating" I hope that you're not holding your breath waiting for that to happen.  I would love to see the FHSAA put an academic requirement on all transfers wanting to participate in athletics at the new school; say a 3.0 or a 3.5 cumulative GPA verified by the former school, or in lieu of that, a waiver by the previous school allowing the transferring student to play immediately. The only exceptions would be either (1) the student transferring as a result of his/her family physically moving to the new school's zone and the family establishing permanent residency there, (2) transferring from a private high school to his/her new school's zone where the family has established permanent residency, or (3) transferring to a private high school with eligibility based upon meeting the GPA requirement listed above. 
    • Just once I would like to see a couple of these kids say that they are transferring to another school due to the other school having a better academic rating with the fans praising them for declaring it.  Something that was the main intention behind the legislature passing the transfer ruling.
