OK, I understand the sensitivity now.... I said he was "in my opinion, out coached this past weekend". I am not making an effort to imply anything. I didn't say that coaching lost the series. I said Rains followed a game plan and made adjustments throughout the series, and Carthage did not. This was a post intended to congratulate Rains and offer an "attaboy" to their coach. It was not intended to be a "passive aggressive" swipe at the high school coaching community or McFall.
Unfortunately, I have been privy to a several different coaches who were handed a winning hand. Sometimes a coach is the difference, sometimes kids make coaches look better than they are, and sometimes coaches make kids look better than they are. Sometimes, the moment overwhelms them. Sometimes opinions differ on just exactly what happened. Had I seen you at the games this past weekend, I'm sure I would've enjoyed discussing our differences of opinion with you.
