    They must not have cheated skillfully enough. (I say that with all due sarcasm.) The CIF’s lax transfer rule, and its poor enforcement of that lax rule, are turning high school sports into an even worse travesty than they already were.
    It’s also way past time for the private high schools to be put into divisions that are completely separate from those for public schools.

    Sondheimer of the Times is reporting that Dylan Thomas, the Colorado-bound receiver from Santa Fe, has been granted a transfer to Cathedral. I guess it’s not always true that the team which cheats together stays together.

    Does Bagley III’s move mean he can turn pro quicker than other one-and-done guys, or does the NBA have a minimum age?
