    You sure defend the coaches.

    Discipline, attitude, effort. Those are the areas I question the most with the current program. I see things Castles and Sitton would have never allowed.

    This is false. There has been 1 transfer, and #8 can throw much better than griffin could anyway. That position isn’t the issue. The o-line has the size and strength. Talent is not the issue by a long shot. It’s an excuse predominately used by coaches.

    I don’t think Jug expects to fix it all on smoaky. Just sharing his thoughts and trying to get opinions from others. Jug is a lot like me and just doesn’t like losing, and doesn’t like the current trend. Also, I know Jug is very willing to sit down with the coach. As am I. Maybe we already have. This forum is to talk sports good and bad and that means problems will get discussed on here. Don’t think that means we want to try and fix things on smoaky, or that we are starting a witch hunt for the coaches, or that we think we know the absolute answer. I started this thread to get opinions of other fans in an environment where they could truly speak their mind. A lot of folks won’t tell you how they really feel in the stands on Friday night, because they might lose some friends. Right, wrong, or indifferent, that’s just the way some folks are. So at the end of the day we have a team that isn’t performing the way the community would like them to perform, and there are several reasons that I’ve heard as to why this is the case. I just want to explore this on here and see what others thoughts and ideas are. You say meet with the coach, which is a great step towards addressing concerns, and I agree should be done.

    I don’t know how to find the answer. I wasn’t in the room when the coaches were interviewed. You hear administration talk about things with a positive attitude. I just refuse to accept mediocrity and act happy about it. It’s not doing any of these kids any good to learn to accept losing. If I say I’m frustrated at how things are going and some changes are needed, I’m shunned for not “supporting the boys.” This is just a nonsense argument that leads to a downward spiral. At some point we have to get real and determine what the real problem is, and then we have to fix it. And I’m sick of hearing people blame it on talent level. I played on a very successful team at CH, so I know what talent it takes to win, and the kids on the field now are good enough to compete at a higher level than they are currently. Something is just not working, and I don’t know what it is.

    I’ve heard it’s because CH doesn’t pay enough for coordinators and other staff and participation rates. I just refuse to believe that CH has 6-10 year talent droughts and all these other schools are immune to it. These schools have talent, but they are also cultivating more talent, and maximizing the talent they have. You can’t tell me that just because a kid grows up 20 miles down the road to the east they are just simply more talented. I think the program plays more into all this.

    Good points. I’ve always heard it take 3-4 years before you really know what quality of “program” a coach is running.

    If he was at Carthage he would have double the offers. Your point was needing to have talent on the field. My point was that there is talent out there now. Carthage doesn’t even have Mathew Tucker talent every year, he was NFL talent level. Williams is plenty good enough to ride behind him to several wins. Thomas in the other side is just as dangerous. Most schools would love to have two WR the caliber that CH has.

    I wish I knew the answer to the last question. Theres also a line between supporting your current coach and being the bad guy making needed changes at the coaching position. How do you know which is right for your program?

    They expect wins. They are in uncharted water and are reacting exactly how I expected them. As far as the Matthew Tucker type kids, there’s one on the team now. Has 14 offers already.

    I was surprised too. I felt it was a reach, but that it was only fair to give him the benefit of the doubt. I wanted to see an up and coming guy. I was surprised that he didn’t show up to any spring offseason workouts his first year there, and I was disturbed by his article in the pigskin preseason magazine throwing the seniors last year under the bus stating that they didn’t learn his system, as his explanation for a losing season last year. I still gave him the benefit of the doubt, but it’s more of the same this year. I still give him the benefit of the doubt even today. At some point we have to start making progress. So what needs to happen to fix things in CH?

    Interesting. How so?

    There is hope with the kids on varsity now IMO. It looks to me like the talent is there.

    What do you mean? Dean and board support Hooker to the point of not holding him accountable?

    I would disagree with the timing of when it happened. More like 2014 season. In 2013 CH went 4 rounds and lost to Kilgore in their route to the title game against Carthage. CH had a very good team that year. It just seems to me like other programs seem to be able to consistently win with maybe an occasional down year. CH seems to be on a consistent below average trend with an occasional glimpse of potential greatness. I’ve heard people blame it on participation rate, talent level, coaching, play calling, administration, demographics, private schools, transfers, etc. Why can Kilgore, Carthage, Henderson, Gilmer, Tatum, Longview, JT, and several others make it happen, but not CH? Why did CH have such trouble finding a coach? 4 candidates withdrew their name after making the cut. I remember going to the to the games in 2004-2015. There was a winning expectation, packed house, lots of support, great atmosphere, playoffs were an expectation. All of that’s long gone. I hate it for the kids. The team has a lot of great kids that have incredible potential.
