agreed. Blair-Taylor....population of what 2,000?? playing against an Eau Claire school......population of 60,000 plus. Regis shouldn't be playing all these small towns in D6 of which Blair-Taylor was the smallest.


Eleva - Strum had no problem beating Regis in basketball last year? That was a D4 playing a D3. B- T can't beat a D6 vs. D6 matchup?

Families that pay extra for their education are also usually more motivated and involved in the school. It's the case of 100% family participation in privates(ok, maybe that is a bit much) vs. the maybe 50% of publics.

For more on this debate, you can check out the Cloverbelt forum from the years 2001- present...[:-]

But seriously, nobody talks much about private schools unless they lose to one of them. When you beat them, they are just another team, when you lose to them, its because they are from a huge city and recruit. Not saying these things aren't true, but it seems to be a recurring effect.


The highlighted is false. I prob have been one of the most active posters on this subject for about 5 years. MY team has never lost a playoff game to a private. I have links up the wazzo to support my opinions. Not only from wis discussions but from National debates on this subject. One can not discount the advantages the privates have in the divisional placement. IT is real, it is proven and it will be another heated topic in D3 in basketball this winter. It is also one of the important issues the the WIAA needs to consider in hiring a replacement for Doug C. Not that they need to have litmus test but those on staff now have seemed to only want to tip toe around the subject. ( FOR YEARS )

I'm not saying its not an issue, because it obviously is. But my example was for this board in particular. They have a private school in EC Immanuel. You barely ever hear anything about them and having an unfair advantage. But when a team from this conference plays a good private school the topic is an instant hit. Believe me, I do not like the advantages that private schools have. I dealt with them my whole high school career playing in the Cloverbelt. All I am saying is that the issue, esepecially in the case of this board and the c-belt board, comes up mainly when a private school beats one of their teams.

Gotcha, thats the thing on the internet and forums. Sometimes intent is hard to decider.

Perhap what sometimes comes into play is that if someone in the private sector/school, is very good at a sport and in the same town there are two private schools. I'd guess that they would nearly always choose to play for the traditionally better small private. Look at E.C. and LaCrosse and the privates there. One us usually in the D3 hunt and and the other seldom. If you are a very good player which school are you going to attend all things equal ?

EC Immanuel is different than Regis and other privates in that you pretty much need to join their Lutheran denomination or pay alot more money to attend that school. Immanuel is also different in that some of their athletes have home addresses outside of the state of Wisconsin and that is why they always have a 3-4 week break in their basketball schedules every year around Christmas time.

At Regis you don't have to be Catholic to attend.......they'll let anybody in.

Perhaps the two Catholic schools are a better comparison.

Notice where it says their are different policies for Non-CLC (church of the Lutheran Confession) students and those policies include a higher tuition. Also notice in the non-discrimination policy where it does not say religion.

It looks like Regis couldn't beat a D6 either, Necedah is just too well balanced, Regis relied on the running game only against B-T, and used it well along with some B-T mistakes but Necedah had too many wepons for Regis, looks like the Cinderella run is done for Regis for this year in football.
