    Ensworth Job open again

    Ingle will only leave CPA for MBA. Euvarard (sp) is not going anywhere. He wins. I agree with Roc Batten being a candidate. Good dude.

    Turf in Sumner County

    14 NFL teams have Fieldturf, 18 have natural grass. Colleges: Arizona, Oregon, Wisconsin, Louisville, Syracuse, Kentucky, Houston, Texas, Missouri, Cincy, Ole Miss, Washington, Texas Tech, Iowa, Washington State, Nebraska, Michigan, Navy, West Virginia, Oregon State, Rice, Colorado State......just to name a few. More and more school systems in TN are getting fieldturf as well. I hope this helps in your argument.

    Do you have data to back up your "facts" statement concerning injuries? Turf does not have to be replaced every few years. More like a decade, at the least. If it is not used like a community center, it will last loger than that. A lot of the schools you mentioned had turf before fieldturf became like real grass. It used to be hard with a concrete base. I dare say you will see some of these teams you mentioned go back to fieldturf in the near future. I played on the old turf of Birmingham, MTSU, Tenn Tech, Boise State, Northern Illinois, APSU, Chattanooga, ETSU in old dome, Murray State, Cincinnati & many others. It was awful. The stuff I coach on now is unreal. And it will only keep getting better.

    No. School systems are moving to turf for PR purposes as well as safety issues. With a turf field, schools can work year round with their teams. Junior Pro programs can also use it as a money driven attraction. Makes since on a lot of fronts.

    Actually, East Hickman has had a couple of very good coaches in the past. Frank King and Matt Jones. Both were in tough situations, but both are/were very good coaches. I think King actually won a playoff game and beat Hickman a couple of times.

    Metro Rumors

    I know of a very good 2 time head coach with multiple State championship appearances who didn't even get a sniff. He is even working in Metro as we speak.

    Why Yes, yes I did. I even said it out loud. When the culture of a program is as bad as it has been at East Hickman, then the culture needs to be fixed. Get the kids out and wins will probably follow, in due time. Not right away. Notice I did not say the "new coach" should not worry about wins. Coaches always worry about wins. That is a given. People in Lyles, Wrigley, Bon Aqua & the occasional kid from Santa Fe that may cross the border need to worry about their child being in a good culture.

    What? Creek Wood is absolutely loaded. They will have their QB back as well as their RB. Very good linemen returning as well. Not sure where you are getting your intel, but you are getting bad information.

    Which is exactly why I said I would be concerned as the interim moving forward. You said: Good man, passionate about the TEAM. That is usually what administrators look for in a coach. The last thing EH people should look for right now are wins. The last 6-7 years for East Hickman have been brutal. I keep hearing stories of great kids walking the hallway not wanting to play. They need to hire someone who can fix the culture and get kids out of the hallway and get administration on their side and share the same vision.

    Considering the fact that East Hickman has been open since Oct 27, or 112 days ago, and the 1st job open of the off-season, I am starting to believe as well no one wants the job. They apparently have an interim coach on staff that has been running the program since that time. If I was that guy, I would have some questions for sure as to why he is not the coach moving forward. We have also heard that maybe 3 guys have been offered and accepted the job recently. This is so Hickman Countyish. Never a dull moment.
