We'll chat at 9 tonight and there's plenty to blabber about:
* My Prep Talk column today on the role of high school sports in light of some recent disappointing incidents.
* The 2012 Section VI football schedule has officially been released.
* The Power 10 is back for the spring ... with a twist: We rate the best teams from ALL sports.
* Tuesday's Scholastic Spotlight, which included my story on boys lacrosse players making verball committments to colleges extremely early.
As always, anything in the world of high school sports -- or our coverage of it -- is up for discussion.
I promise I'll get to your question or comment -- but please be patient. It can get busy fielding all of the questions and I can only answer one at a time. And PLEASE don't enter your question/comment multiple times -- that only makes things more hectic.
