HS coaches just don't get it

    I had to throw this out there...
    Our local prep editor and a TV sports guy were asked by the flak for the NM high school sports association to speak at a coaches association meeting regarding relating to the media.
    The seminar immediately prior on officiating was jam packed.
    The seminar in question, not so much. Zero coaches. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
    Ya gotta love it.

    Introducing, Gannett's newest creation:


    Careful what you ask for Tom.

    Gannett has high hopes for highschoolsports.net. Their fairy tale plans are to have 100 percent participation from all schools and have high school players, coaches, fans all blogging and submitting videos and photos.

    There's serious interest in the topic of officiating because of the officials shortage.

    There's no interest in the topic of media because there is no shortage of print, tv, radio or internet media (let alone fanboi blogs, booster websites, and the "bloggy spawn" that is scout.com, rivals.com, maxpreps.com, etc.) hanging on the every word of kids not yet old enough to vote.

    As of right now, nobody can figure out a way to keep players/fans/parents from updating (ie changing) their team's stats, so I can't wait for the first day to wake up and see right guard Tub O'Lard listed with 1,000 yards rushing and 28 TDs.

    I wonder if anybody ever thinks out ideas these days, or they just throw stuff out there and hope it sticks.

    Never knew Gannett ran that site.

    Until last fall, we didn't have computers with browsers that could open it. About half of our coverage schools refused to fax in schedules because "we could just get it from the site." Made assembling a tab much more fun.
