School is dismissed at the regular time just ahead of the worst of the storm. That school has a basketball game scheduled that night. Under the rules in place for some of the school systems in this area, the game should be played rather than postponed. After all, the kids went to school so why can't the games be played?
Silly, isn't it.
I don't want any athlete, coach, parent or fan to be put at risk for a basketball game — even one from an important events like the county tourney.
But what I do want is for the athletic directors to have the power to make a decision about a Thursday night game on Thursday afternoon and not have the decision made for them on Wednesday afternoon.
That isn't being done now. For that reason, I will wait and publish the schedule for Friday night on Friday morning. It is the only reasonable thing to do under the current system for making such decisions.
