High scoring: Breaking down football's offensive bonanza
Waco Tribune
If Baylor offered Football Philosophy 101 as a fall elective, it could probably fill the new McLane Stadium with hopeful coaches in the first hour. The lessons on winning games would be straightforward, and it wouldn't take long for two camps to emerge: Those who believe the key to victory is scoring more than the opponent and those with the conviction to keep the opponent from having as many points as them.

Football stadiums tackled by taxpayers and donors: Fields of green
The Plain Dealer
Lights blazing, bands blaring, communities congregate Friday nights at the high school football field. How much has that field cost you? How much have you paid for artificial turf and an all-weather track, or even a grandiose $9-million stadium? Who pays for Northeast Ohio's stadiums varies as widely as the facilities themselves.

Sports and the age fraud menace
Grantland
The Danny Almonte story was one of the splashier examples of age fabrication, with its media-ready blend of immigration, youth exploitation, a perfect baseball game, and, oh yeah, New York City. But for as long as organized sports have set constraints on participation based on age, there have been people — sometimes the athletes themselves, often their handlers — trying to smudge the ink.

To keep kids on teams, district rethinks athletic academic policy
The Oregonian
Oregon's Beaverton School District is reconsidering its policy that penalizes athletes for failing grades. Currently, athletes with less than a C average or an F on midterms or report cards, are ineligible to play a sport until they improve their grades. But that would change if the school board agrees to modify the policy based on the recommendation of the district's high school athletic directors and principals.

Using technology to make college football better, faster, safer
USA Today
In a small meeting room on Nike's campus in early July, with the simmering field turf to their backs, college football's top quarterback recruits received an introduction to the next phase in sports training. There were no footballs involved, no passes and no pads; it was simply a computer program, one embedded within the framework of a playbook, and it took members of the prestigious Elite 11 quarterback camp by surprise.

FITNESS AND CONDITIONING


Physical activity in our schools isn't a frill
The Hamilton Spectator
So, a new study from McMaster University's Child Health and Exercise Medicine program and a Burlington charitable group called Start2Finish finds there is a clear connection between fitness levels and improved school performance. Why do we need another study to tell us what we already know? We need academic and scientific work like this because, while we know in general terms that more exercise is better, we don't necessarily know to what extent that is true, nor do we have quantifiable data.
