  1. I have said in every post that I will give you Edwards at Clay County, he is a good coach with good talent. All of his players play hard and are good young men so we will leave him out of this equation. In 2014 Monterey won 21 games which is good by any stretch of the imagination. So 4 out of the last 6 years Monterey has had good winning seasons. We will right that off as West being lucky. If my records are correct since 2014 Clarkrange has had 1 winning season, not making the Sub-State. Since 2014 Jackson County has had 3 winning seasons not making the Sub-State. 4 out of the last 6 years Monterey has had 4 winning seasons made it to the Sub-State twice and the State Tournament and could possibly make another appearance but some how West isn't near the coach that Pyle or Thomas are. I am missing something here. I am an old man and did not go to school at any of these schools but I believe in giving credit where credit is due. You will have to help me with your way of thinking sometime but I believe I have proved my point.
  2. The definition of a good coach isn't always defined by the win loss record. I gave you Clay County they have always been blessed with basketball talent. Gordonsville has some talented ball players, so please tell me what Bibb has done with that program. They beat Monterey when the post player was suspended a couple of games. When the season was on the line how did they fare? As far as when he was in Pickett County what did he accomplish. Ask Pickett County about him and they will tell you that he is an awful coach. I am not agreeing with your comment about Pyle either. The last couple of years he has had some good ball players and some pretty good teams but that hasn't got him anywhere but has done more with less, that is a load of crap. Thomas in Jackson County has had some pretty good teams with good ball players in the last couple of years but that hasn't got him anywhere either. I have listened to the parents in the stands the last couple of years and they can't stand him either. Peyton West is an above average ball player but the rest are not what I call great ball players but they play hard and win ball games even when West isn't having a good game, in my opinion he has done more with less than any coach in this district. For the last 5 or 6 years Monterey has been a handful for any team to play. Before that, Monterey was accustomed to loosing and it takes a while to get that mentality out of the program and it is not done over night, and I personally believe West has done a pretty good job changing that mentality without a Tyreke Key coming through the program. So you give me your definition of a good coach and then I will rank the coaches in District 6 accordingly
  3. Now grant it I am no basketball guru but I love to watch and have watched every coach in this District for many years now. I will say that Edwards is a real good coach and Amonette is a real good Coach but from there you are going to be hard pressed to convince me that Thomas from Jackson County is a better coach and that Pyle from Clarkrange is a better coach, that the coach from Red Boiling Springs is better coach, had Marsh not transferred there they would not have won a district game, the coach from Trousdale is not a better coach he just has a lot of athletes on his team and who really knows what kind of coach Bibb really is. Also it is really hard to compare apples to oranges. Clay County has always been a basketball school but in reality how many games would Clay County have won the years that Tyreke was there had he not been there. He was 1 of those players that come along once in a coaches career. He would have made any coach look great. So to say that he is the 5th best coach makes me think that you are (1) a hater or (2) a former player of his that must have been really bad and never got any playing time or (3) a former player from one of the other schools in the district. I am not saying that Monterey is a basketball power house but I do know that in the last several years that teams have dreaded playing them because most games they were going to give you all that you wanted and you would have to play your best to beat them and that mentality does not start with 16 year old young men so someone has been having to instill that in them. In closing I am not saying that he is the best coach in the district but he by far should be ranked higher than 5th. Just my 2 cents
  4. In my personal opinion it is not just Pickett County. How many other districts have 5 of the 8 teams that have been ranked in the top 20 all year and the other 3 teams that are not ranked could win on any given night. This is 1 of if not the hardest districts to be in. Just from reviewing the teams in the other districts and the games that they have played, there has been real lopsided scores. You review the scores from the district games played in District 6 and there are not many lopsided scores in district games. No team in this district can take a night off and still win.
  5. I guess you have not been to any of Monterey's games. To say that you don't recall West being double teamed on every possession lets me know you have not watched him play much this year. I should not have worded my first post as saying he was cheated because it did sound like I was taking away from Marsh and I didn't mean it that way, sounds like I was being a "homer", whatever that means. Marsh is a very dominant player and competitor. I am sure both young men come from great families and I never or would I ever insinuate anything any different. I also believe Woodcock was a very good player but I don't think he was as good as West then or now. Clay County had several players last year and have several this year that all contribute to their success. I felt like Silk was as important to their success as Woodcock. You are right Shaq was a very dominant post player but he was no Michael Jordan. Both Marsh and West are great ball players and I don't want to take anything away from either one but in my personal opinion West is the better of the 2 and I feel he deserves MVP. I am guessing he is averaging 25 points a game or more and he has to work his but off for every single one of them. You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine and I felt like West was MVP last year and I believe he is this year.
  6. Marsh is a very good ball player at 6'7 or 6'8 he is hard to handle because he is by far the tallest player in the district or in the Upper Cumberland area. However you get him a few feet away from the rim and he is not near the same threat. West is what 5'10 -6 foot at best and he gets double and triple teamed every ball game and he can hurt you from the 3 or he can drive in and score in the paint with the post players. He is by far the best and most complete player in the district and should be the District MVP. They gave it to Marsh last year because of his size and I don't believe West should be cheated again this year.
  7. We didn't exactly crawl our way back into the game. We had a gift horse. We had to start fouling and Monterey couldn't make their foul shots so we won. If they had 50 percent from the foul line we would have still lost by double digits
  8. I do not think that Woodcock is at a different level than the West kid. Woodcock is a great shooter while West is more than that. I do not think that Marsh is MVP material. He is dominant in the box because of his size. I don't think he is MVP material until he can develop a jump shot. The teams that have had success against RBS have been able keep him away from the rim and then he hasn't been much of a threat. I also think that every district game during the tournament in this district will be a competitive game. Every one of the teams in District 6A is capable of winning a game
  9. Yes even Monterey hasn’t lost a home game.
  10. One thing I enjoy about this District is that every team has to come ready to play every District game, because any team in this District could win on any given night. There is no easy win game like in a lot of the Districts.
  11. I agree with the fact that Silk is a very good ballplayer. He can play a lot bigger than he is and he can shoot or play post and he gives he gives 100% every game. I still disagree with Marsh being MVP. The only thing he has going for him is his height. I have watched him play several times and have not been very impressed with him. He does not have the supporting cast that Woodcock has and he has no choice but to try and do the majority of the scoring and the work. If Woodcock didn't have Silk or Ashlock or the rest of the good players he would or could score 50 points a game. I think that the Silk kid is closer to MVP than Marsh is. If he stays healthy I will give you another dark horse, Peyton West from Monterey. I have watched him play a couple of games and he is very good. I saw where he had 35 points last night against a good Gordonsville team. I was really shocked by the outcome of the Clarkrange / Pickett County game
  12. Marsh is definitely not District MVP. Woodcock is twice the player that Marsh is, if he stays healthy he will be District MVP. Monterey's big guy was not aloud to play Friday night against RBS and they only beat Monterey by 1 point with a freshman guarding Marsh all night. Jackson may have beat Pickett County but anyone can loose on any given night so I believe Pickett is still a better ball team than Jackson County. I do agree that Trousdale is very athletic and could be dangerous for anyone to play and the same for Gordonsville. Jackson County is very well coached and could also be dangerous for anyone to play. Monterey when they shoot well is capable of beating any of these teams. I haven't seen Clarkrange play with all the starters back but without them I don't see them winning a District game. So I agree with Medalist, in this District no one is guaranteed a win while playing each other. Every game played should be fun to watch.
  13. I am going to go out on a limb here and say that Mr. Basketball is not from Pickett County or Monterey, but could possibly be from Jackson County.

    you were the one puzzled by the York loss not me so I was Just letting you know that just because a school is smaller does not mean that they can't compete with a larger school. I thought this was a discussion board doesn't really matter what class it is I was just discussing basketball I didn't mean to offend you

    I have not has the opportunity to see RBS play yet. I know that Pickett County and Monterey could compete in 8AA. I know that Jackson County and Clarkrange have won games against 8AA teams this year I saw where Clay County came close to beating LA.
