So, did UIL catch this error before or after they handed Humble Kingwood the state championship trophy?

Boy, I sure wouldn't want the job of going over to them afterwards and ask for it back ...

Oops. My bad.

And wrestling should NOT be a sport in Texas. Leave that for the kids from Iowa. Hey, by the way, I heard the other day that TAPPS had to rule on a violation of the inducement (ie "recruiting for athletic purposes") rule with a WRESTLING team. Now who is going to waste their time cheating and recruiting private school wrestlers in Texas?

If you're going to cheat and recruit, wouldn't you do it in an "important sport," like football, basketball, baseball or even softball/volleyball?

I got to disagree with you on wrestling. Wrestling in Texas is better than Iowa, Texas is the hot bed of recruting right now and our kids are going all over the U.S and winning. The only problem is that none of the Texas colleges have varsity programs but WTSU is going to start one in 2009. Wrestling would be great for kids that go to 6 man schools that don't like basketball and are looking for something to do. The best thing to ever happen was when it went UIL. I know that would be hard to have a team because there are 13 weight classes but I would rather have a sharp stick in my eye than watch basketball. :D
