In response to Spencer Hux's blog, "Michigan school board cancels football season: 'No child left behind' again fails our parents and students," which highlighted the decision for the Oscoda Area High School football team to cancel its season after not scoring a point in losing its first four games of the season:

As a member of the Oscoda Board of Education and the only member to oppose the Administrations decision to cancel the varsity football season. I agree and applaud your stance on this issue. The football coach quoted the Nebraska University Strength and Conditioning standards, having only two students that met these standards, as the reason to cancel the season.
