    It's not illegal until you get caught.

    It's all reactive. Even the NCAA is reactive with enforcement. If you want to examine a smoldering case of high school recruiting, read up on Kennedy Catholic in Mercer County.

    Kennedy Catholic would finish 2nd or 3rd in the PSAC West every year. LOL.

    Alma mater of Joe Lombardi, btw.

    Legal or illegal... that kid wanted to go to Prep. His parents were just pissed that Prep wouldn't give him any assistance. Mom is a doctor... she can afford it!

    About $10k. Most Catholic high schools have a penalty if the parents aren't members at a Catholic church.

    The wise guys in Vegas have shared the following guidance with me:

    Clarion Hoops to finish to tops in PSAC West at +10000000 odds.
    SRU Football at +9 wins.

    Bold---but I'll take IUP men over. I really like this team that Bravado is putting together. I think if they advance to the NCAAs they stand an excellent chance of the over.

    I saw in the most recent issue of IUP magazine that there was a picture of the IUP men on the back cover in their borrowed Boro duds. I just had a cool idea---wouldn't it be kind of neat tradition to start each year that in one of the IUP/Boro games that the home team (alternating year to year) picks and provides the uniforms for the visiting team? It would be really interesting and perhaps provide some spark for fans to come out and see it. The home team could make them wear their old unis or get stuff made up like pink, or polka dots or crazy color schemes. It would be sort of a funny tradition to get started on the heels of what happened last winter up at the Boro. It would no doubt garner some national attention and maybe inspire other teams to do it.

    Or maybe the NCAA has strict regulations against this sort of thing. No doubt they do. Ho-hum.

    That wouldn’t be something I would be interested in seeing. Sorry for shutting the idea down lol.

    Woo! I'd hedge a penny on Clarion at those odds! Don't think they have a chance of winning the PSAC but at those odds the up side would be huge on even a small bet.

    Realistically I think the house would hold the line at 50:1 to limit their exposure on what would probably be a really small handle.
