May be beating a dead horse but...

Post by jujubean »

Listening to retired Portsmouth basketball coach, Eugene Collins on the radio. He expressed the desire of seeing Portsmouth join the SOC2 or 3 (Whatever the new setup is). Chuck Greenslate stated that every head coach in the current SOC2 wants Portsmouth to join. Geographically and competitively it makes sense.

My question is this: WHY is Portsmouth not joining the SOC, especially with new alignments?

(Coach Collins is giving a good interview btw)

No idea. Maybe possible scheduling conflicts with regards to Ironton? That’s an important rivalry to both schools.

So, was the Ironton vs Ashland game and we dropped it for a one year opponent. Would love to see it back on schedule.

Doesn’t sound like Ashland is interested.

Unfortunately, I think there's a non-athletics reason for PHS not being in the SOC

When the OVC pushed Ironton out of the league it was matter of time till things started falling apart.

Ashland won’t play you anymore because you recruit their kids

Didn’t Wheelersburg recruit their star quarterback ? Maybe that was Raceland.

Schools should be shut down for recruiting. Highly ILLEGAL.
