Kentucky high schools are no longer allowed to conduct post-game handshakes. I think this is shameful, and indicative of the inability of coaches to instill sportsmanship in their players. It's purely a discipline matter, and I think bailing on a tradition like this is taking the easy way out.

If these schools can't teach young men how to behave in public on the field, how can they be successfully teaching them the more important things?

Tweet of the Morning:

This is beyond cowardly.

Congratulations to Coach Mitchell and Jenna!  Love that middle name, coach.
