Last year, the Tri-8 Conference added a new school to their schedule; The Panther Creek Catamounts joined the conference, but only played JV Football. This year, the Catamounts will compete for a conference championship and the right to play for a state championship in December, but they'll have quite the challenege.

Indiana Basketball Coach in Major Trouble

I subscribe to an online newsletter called “Bad Jocks,” a web site that focuses on athletes and coaches breaking the law.

This coach, Matthew Hensley (24), was charged in federal court with using an Internet chatroom to entice a 13-year-old girl for sex. Just for any other stupid criminals out there, it’s not hard for cops to pretend to be 13-year-old girls, and that is exactly what happened in this case.
