Proposal 23: Travel times, less revenue a concern for all schools
Tally the travel time from Round Lake to Rockford on a Friday, from Wheeling to the West Side in rush hour, from the Quad Cities to a faraway city on a stormy night. Count the dollars lost at ticket gates. Add it all up and the IHSA’s Proposal 23 might sack football at some high schools or, if nothing else, deliver a blow to athletic budgets. Winning at all costs just might have taken on a new meaning.
