Parents ruin sports..

Alan I agree. Parents coach to get their kids and kids friends a leg up. Kids are choosen too basedRead More on parents and kids being friends. Take AAU and All-Stars and positions in each sport. Parents coach because they want their kid in prime positions, kids are friends with certain kids or because a family does not like someone but the kid has talent not playing. You need "out of area" coaches to come and determine if a kid is "that good" to be at the next level not "locals" whom coach because that is the only way the kid will get playing time.

sportsnut: Seems like a perfect opportunity for you to get involved in coaching... If nothingRead More else, becoming a coach will give you a voice in the league to lobby for equal playing time for all kids, and rotation of positions--particularly at the lower levels.

I was watching the Indiana-Illinois game last night for two reasons. My son goes to Indiana and hisRead More friend, Tyler Griffey, plays for Illinois. Although Illinois knocked Indiana out of first place, we are SO happy that Tyler is the one who made it happen. Congrats, Tyler!

Well, I'm an Illini graduate myself and I was thrilled to read about it — although I didn'tRead More get a chance to watch the game. The poor Illini have been so dismal this season after a great start. Thanks for commenting, Melinda.

I am an Illinois grad and watched the game. For a team that is at the bottom of the Big Ten to hangRead More in and scrap against #1 ranked Indiana was terrific, Congratulations to Tyler on the final play. When it was tied I screamed, when he broke for the basket with the winning score I shot out of my chair, One of the best finishes I can remember! GO ILLINI

I am obviously a Packers fan and after watching Colin kaepernick eat up the Green Bay defense I haveRead More to go with the Fourty Niners. But both teams deserve to be here.I think it should be a good game to watch. BRING IT ON.

Yes, hard for us Packer fans...
