Re: state marching every year
I don't know...maybe you should ask the Athletic Director why the football team needs a Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, Defensive Coordinator, QB Coach, RB Coaches, Receivers Coaches, Offensive Line Coach, Defensive Line Coach, Linebacker Coaches, Defensive Secondary Coach, and a Special Teams Coach...when as recently as 15 years ago many coaching staffs were all of 4 people. PLUS...coach requires the boys to attend summer camps for their specific positions...at the kids' expense. I mean, with all those camps and coaches, what is the head coach actually doing? Right? Sound familiar?
While you are at it, you can also ask Coach how he would like it if he was only allowed to advance past bi-district every other year? And before anyone says it...the deeper a team goes in the playoffs, the farther away from home they travel. Fewer fans make the trip the farther away it is...which results in less gate revenue. The only way for a school to "make money" on a deep playoff run is if the school is in the DFW area where even the State Championship Game is only an hour away.
