Pick On Someone Your Own Size

Whoa man! The Detroit Free Press is totally harassing ULS over the whole football debacle. Last week they railed against us for not being able to have a football team and this week they are haranguing us for "picking and choosing" the games we want to play. It's all very complicated (and somewhat boring) but the administration around here is having a fit over all the bad press. Here's an excerpt from the latest attack:

Liggett's actions last week were reprehensible. The school thumbed its nose at the entire Clawson community, not just the 24 players and their coaches. At the very least, Liggett officials owe the Clawson school district a big fat check for the revenue it lost in not having a home game. At some schools, that can be several thousand dollars. But this is about more than just money ... This is simply the arrogance of people running a school where juniors and seniors pay $17,000 in tuition and they think they are a little more special than everyone else.

Yowch! You just knew they were going to say something about money. I feel bad for the kids, they don't deserve to get yelled at in a major newspaper but I love that the administration is completely livid over this whole thing.

It's a circus, y'all ... and all this hoopla is over football -- we have always sucked at football! But hey, we've got a wicked golf team.
