The drive to CH is definitely more cumbersome than the drive to Euclid from the westside, but I just mapped it out and the drive times from all of the western schools are identical in time for both...

I'm not even sure that Cleveland Heights made a strong push to join the new GCC, but I'll check on that. However, they're going to wake up tomorrow in a vastly different LEL without Euclid and quite...

Is is possible for you to discuss things without ad hominem attacks?

FWIW, the new GCC is very similar in size and mission to what the LEL was 15-20 years ago, so in some regards maybe I am wrong in...

Agreed. But this is also true for just about every school in the new GCC, there are some good arguments for and against inclusion. Really the only two current GCC schools that have been linked...

It's not "doom and gloom," you now have a nice conference but one that has many of the same flaws as the NOC and even the old LEL. I don't think it's a stretch to continue to talk about what might...

Fair enough, that's mostly true, but I just wanted to dispute the idea that Cleveland Heights as a community is one gigantic "ghetto."

As for Euclid, it's not a bad addition to the league in a lot...

The fringes of Cleveland Heights, particularly near the East Cleveland border, are going to continue to deteriorate unless something is done. But the areas of CH taht I mentioned earlier that border...

A couple of points:

-Cleveland Heights has not insignificant pockets of wealth that Euclid does not have. Take a drive down Fairmount Boulevard (and its side streets) and you'll see fully-occupied...

The defecting NOC schools should probably have gone off and formed their own league rather than going to the SL.

Nordonia isn't likely to be booted from the SL. But I do think that what has transpired does make it more likely that the SL will give Medina a more serious second look.

As for Cleveland Heights,...

Soccer and lacrosse should be givens. And speaking of the latter, Bengal lax has come storming out of the gate to a 5-1 record including wins over NDcl, Gilmour Academy, and CVCA. I think they play...

I still like Korb Field (Brush High School), though you can probably make similar arguments against it.

One thing to remember is that Cleveland Heights is officially renovating its field in the next...

I'd be all for it. Years ago when Benny was an independent I thought a conference of Benedictine, Walsh, Lake, SVSM, Mooney, Ursuline, etc. made sense. The NCL as it is currently constituted is...
