  1. With the KING back at the helm of Bearden, they can't be anything but good.
  2. What is wrong with Peanut or are you not at liberty to say?
  3. What has all this garbage got to do with Lynn Burkey resigning @ SCHS? Back on topic, please.
  4. It looks as if Lenoir City girls hire as gone the way of the Oak Ridge boys hire. They went from hiring someone with character to hiring a character. Just one person's opinion like everthing else on here.
  5. GovMan, Does he have a thing for Coke machines? Is Cleveland HS short a Coke machine?
  6. Sure hope that the OR administration is not disappointed. Maybe he has matured since his days at Cleveland.
  7. The only money that OR is throwing at Mark Blevins is monopoly money.
  8. Here is an interesting name for the OR job. Steve Shipley!!!!!! Something to think about for all you soothsayers.
  9. In all seriousness, I would have to say that the best coach of the last decade, without question, would have to be Jim "I am in charge" Davis.
  10. All of you crying babies, just shut up and let the girls play the games. Some people are not happy unless they have something to complain about or they make up something to complain about. Here's to the rest of us enjoying the games and let the complainers stay at home.
  11. The real question is, Which A-E player will be arrested for assaulting their teammate after the game? The tradition continues.
  12. I think that it is a combination of things that has caused the decline of girls basketball in the area. Tallent and coaching certainly have something to do with it. I have watched many players that have an over abundance of tallent and zero in the area of fundamentals. The tallent carried them the through the younger years and they were never taught the fundamentals. When they get to high school and maybe play against someone that has less tallent and better fundamentals then they become frustrated and the parents cannot understand why they are not the dominant player or why they are not winning. Of course, to the uninformed parent, it is always the coaches fault. Yes, many good coaches leave because of parents and unruly kids. Why would you choose to put up with all that crap when you don't have to. There are not many youth programs where a young girl can be taught the fundamentals of the game mainly because most of the teams are "coached" by a parent that has no clue about teaching fundamentals and good sportmanship. Yes, sportsmanship is part of the game. A perfect example is the way some of the athletes act out when they lose or are disqualified for some reason. Also, some of these pro athletes have the sense of entitlement and all of that filters down to the young kids at a very early age. The chest pumping, the jersey flipping, etc. I could go on but I will stop. Just one persons opinion and I am sure there are many out there that will not agree and that is okay by me. We as a society have been headed in this direction for years and it is not going to stop until we change our philosophy about raising our kids. I don't see it happening anytime soon. The parents of today are the kids of yesterday where all this started and as far as they are concerned nothing is wrong.
