I don't think we are on the same page here...not once did I mention anything about affirmative action. It has nothing to do with the comments I made. I personally have direct experience with the recruiting tactics of some of the coaching over there...they tried to get a few of my players to come to school and play for them, so don't tell me that it doesn't happen.
I coach in a predominately black school district (and am a white male), and we have our up and down years. Kids come to our school from Ursuline tell me it happens (recruiting). All I'm saying is that if we exempt parochial schools from state testing and funding, then why include them in state athletics? If we are leveling the playing field, as you put it, let's keep everything on the same level across the board.
