Welcome to Podsville. I wonder when I retire maybe I can volunteer at the IHSA and dream up crazy things for the high schools to do.

This is version 10 of the IHSA does some nutty stuff.

Let’s say a year ago, the area basketball coaches would get together around this time and seed the teams for playoff action. They could also trade stories and have some fun. That’s gone. It’s off to the internet. Fill in your ballot. No time to argue about how good your team is. There goes bragging about your big upset.

Part 2 is Podsville. Let’s go to class 3A hoops. Let’s sort out the best and worst teams. No, that plan is gone, too. Our pals from the IHSA have done the work for us. No more fair seeding of teams. The IHSA has gone science fiction with something called a pod.

Let’s go directly to the North Chicago Sectional for girls hoops. Focus in on the Grayslake North Regional. No seeding mind you. It’s already been set. Antioch, Grayslake Central, Grayslake North, Lakes and Richmond-Burton are heading over there. It doesn’t matter what their records are.

Nutty? Of course. It’s the IHSA comedy team.
