Whats wrong with Granite City athletics overall is the fact that Granite City has a dwindling population - fewer students equals a smaller talent pool. Same reason Granite City doesn't get the new restaurants and stores - business owners/investors want to put their money in growing communities like Edwardsville and Collinsville. When I was a kid, Granite City had a growing population of around 45k, and now it's down around 30k.
