    Mr. Cupp knows, There's more than one ROACH in the House of WB. I get intel daily from many sources. When Shadroach is gone it'll just be Next Roach Up.

    Can't improve year over year when the talent pool goes down the drain. Folks talking about more players leaving the program. Wondering why they're leaving? No you're not. You know why.

    Dang it CDad! Have you been in a coma or just not paying attention? He must go to 7on7 to teach the basketball players the rudimentary skills of football. There's certainly no time to teach them how to be linemen so they will attempt to displace their current skill position starters and plug in the bball players. And it'll be even better watching Spring practices this year than last. Last year the Field Generals would practice 22-25 kids while 22-25 kids stood on the sidelines picking their posteriors. THIS year they'll be focused on 14-16 players while 35-40 guys wish they were somewhere else. Fundamentals and contact drills are way overrated.

    17-0 Maryville? That sir would be considered an upset by WB this year!!! Sounds more like the box score for the first quarter nowadays.

    Response to Coach Cupp: Sir, I feel your response is heavily one sided in defense of a dismal situation that is partly your creation. While it may be true some boys may enjoy playing for the coaches and some parents may laud his virtues my observation is quite the opposite. I've heard parents in the stands and around town speak much different opinions. For the most part they are kind, well meaning and demure people who publicly would rather not create waves but in private conversations paint a much darker picture of the program. The feedback you receive is from an insulated world you have created by surrounding yourself with boosters and mommies and daddies that hope their buying in will allow Jr. more playing time. My questions are, Have you given the players and parents an opportunity to anonymously voice their opinion? Maybe try a team & parent meeting with a questionnaire. First ask questions to be graded 1 to 4 instead of 1 to 5 so people will not fall safely onto 3 "average". Then allow a space for "Please respond with suggestions for improvement". And last but not least "Are there any past or present situations that I the Athletic Director need to address?" Every year players disembark from the WB Ship to play at other programs. Is there any process in place where you as the AD do an exit interview? There is not. Companies generally require such an interview to glean important information to improve their HR relationships and in a broader sense the company as a whole. In summary Sir, You have much to improve on and staying inside your self made comfort zone of back patters and yes men is not the route to improving the program. Your position as AD is to represent ALL of the athletes and parents no matter how unpopular their opinions are to your delicate ears. Press the flesh in the stands on a Friday night. Introduce yourself to the silent majority. Take a physical note to review later of dissenting opinions. Commission a group to mix in with the crowd to hear the general concerns. The information they return with will shed new light into your decision making processes. As a staunch WB fan I wish you well in your endeavors and much success in righting this listing ship.

    Copy that Barney, I to pull for WB. They have EVERYTHING it takes to be a great program. Except leadership. I liken them to a battleship. Solid, heavily gunned and capable but alas can do nothing because the rudder is missing. Its like it has The Skipper & Gilligan at the bridge.

    Barney, I agree with your post especially on Rick but acting like Shadroach is a villain is sort of like the pot calling the kettle black. I remind you sir of your post putting down a community and by proxy the football program as it was posted on the thread Morristown East Hurricanes on the 5-6A board in which you posted the graphic of a crack/meth pipe insinuating the area was incorrigible. I however I saw it for what it was, a good natured jab meant only to irritate the subject poster, made me laugh. You're kinda of like the Sheriff that rustles cattle on the side when you call people out. Love your posts, you're a fave at The Roach Nest.

    Au Contraire My Dear Friends.... Your paranoia Has led you to yet another rabbit hole. Monsieur Young is not The Shadroach. Such a shame a good and kind gentleman has been implicated with no facts to bolster such an accusation. Although Monsieur Young is both brilliant and widely held in high esteem by all who know him his wit, candor and wordsmithing are not on par with The Roach. It is however my opinion he is a superior leader and knows more about football on Monday morning than the combined knowledge of those that attack him know all week as they are mere charlatans posing as football coaches.

    No "Coach" Childs I haven't been. Probably just a rumor. You don't have anything to worry about. Just keep doing that fantastic job you've been doing.

    I don't like repeating rumors so you better listen closely the first time, Did I hear rumblings of a group of interested higher ups are asking questions on an "informal basis" about WB Football? Possibly the beginning of something we've all been hoping for? If you're asked for input just tell the truth. The facts will speak for themselves.
