The Weather Strikes Again
Well, Old Man Winter has struck again. The Blizzard of 2013 has come and wreaked havoc with the High School Schedule. Teams are scrambling to try to fit in their games. The CIAC has already given permission to play on Sundays. The problem again will be the Conference Tournaments that are scheduled to begin on specific dates. The teams will have to realize their regular season games come first before the Conderence Tournament games, so if the Conference Tournaments need to be amended, then so be it. Instead of taking 16, take 8, instead of 8 take 4 depending on the time availability. I know teams like the Conference Tournament(actually so do I) but they have to realize, if anything gets adjusted, it's that. Some conferences actually base their champion on this tournament. So we'll see what happens over the next couple of weeks, but in the end, it all works out - all the games are played, Conference Champions crowned and the CIAC State Tournament begins.
