The Groves kids are legit. Need to stay more composed in games but that’s on their coaches to reel them in. Talent for all of them is undeniable though. I am just keeping it real

I agree that part of it falls on coaching, but it’s not the whole problem. You can only discipline, run, practice, preach, advocate, beg, and drill discipline into these kids for so long before it’s up to them to get it. It’s not a matter of technique or talent but of having a mind and will for it.

I’ve never been a coach, but that’s my perspective on it.

The charter busses they got for the trip to Chattanooga last year was around $3000 this year just the busses have more than tripled in price plus hotel last year they stayed a night at MTSU and a night at Chattanooga with about 100 staff/players plus food. That’s the cost won’t get on my soapbox but I think it’s a bad look begging for money that’s being used on non essential things like a charter bus 

Actually cost last year was 7000 for charter this year was 10,000

as for using school buses that’s not a option with no extra buses to use 

They didn’t stay a night Murfreesboro they drove up the Thursday morning had practice then left for Chattanooga

I get the sentiment, but you have to remember that it's voluntary, and my information was that no one connected directly to the school system nor team started the account, so it isn't begging. It's obvious that people want to help out, so just enjoy the benefits of their generosity, and as an old coach with ties to both Scotts Hill and Riverside used to say "don't knock someone out of their blessing" if they want to feel like they've helped the kids in some way. Enjoy the ride Riverside...you've worked for it, now go get it!

    • Just saw I on Channel3 app. Absolutely hate that happening and hopefully nothing comes of it, 
    • Gibson County's Point Guard Club Tournament will have Gibson County, South Side, USJ and Dyersburg among others I am pretty sure and it will be Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving. 
    • It was reported on wrcb news channel  4 in Chattanooga tonight. He is on currently on leave. Hate it for Ulric and can’t see him covering up anything illegal. Very Serious investigation though.
    • I haven’t seen any news reports of anything but maybe I’m blind. I did hear about their elite coach leaving because he wasn’t going to be paid as much as he thought he was worth. But hadn’t heard of an investigation yet.
    • News reports of a police investigation going on into Soddy Daisy wrestling. 3 detectives on it. Heard some rumors about this last week and a wife that was removed as the account manager for the program which is an entirely separate issue from the investigation. I have a lot respect for Ulric and very surprised by this.
