  1. This job is posted as “Possible AD/Assistant AD”…. Interesting.
  2. This thread shows a major problem in the coaching world and the communities around it. If this is true and has been "leaked" before official it means someone trusted to conduct business behind closed doors can't keep their mouth shut. Most likely a school board member that likes everyone to know how much they know and how much power they have. I have seen these "leaks" happen before the head coach even knows. Nothing like getting a call about your job being open from someone who's already heard down the grapevine. Imagine waiting for your meeting with the superintendent to find out if you have to uproot your family, and you find out from a guy who read a smoaky thread.
  3. Tough place to build for a lot of reasons outside of coaching. Not a ton of athleticism compared to the district. I believe they were wing-t already, so highly doubt there is a better offensive system for them. And a community where kids have to work. Don't know how it has been recently but know there was a time it was a struggle to get kids to practice/ workouts because of the dairy. Maybe just the idea that they need a new voice, new spark, but Green is a good coach.
  4. This happens every year. And by THIS I mean someone gets on here and tries to prove a point about 4 seeds and playoff structure. Someone then shows evidence that the opposite can happen. Someone then says something involving "Back in my day". Mismatches will happen in every round, some districts are stronger than others, nothing is wrong with more football, and why give a team a bye instead of giving a team a chance.
  5. GS played West Rusk within 3. I saw West Rusks speed last year at regional track. They've seen NB speed or faster already.
  6. Can’t believe those snowflakes didn’t play in the tornado like we would have back in my day.
  7. Can’t believe I forgot Joaquin. They run slot-t extremely well. I didn’t know Cushing was flexbone seems to be the right move for that program.
  8. I think they've all been hit on here it comes down to what size program. East Texas: Pleasant Grove Wing T 4ADII, Paul Pewitt Slot-T 3ADII, Waskom Flexbone, 3ADII, Pittsburg Slot-T 4ADII, Vidor Slot T 4ADII, Centerville Wing-T 2ADI, Hughes Springs Slot-T 3ADII, Tatum Flexbone 3ADI More towards Dallas: Terrell Wing-T 5A DII, Centennial Flexbone 5A DI, Bells Slot-T 3ADII, Gunter Pistol Flexbone 3ADII, Holiday Wing-T 3ADII Centex: Franklin Slot T 3ADI, Liberty Hill 5ADII Slot-T (considered THE Texas Slot T), Shiner- Split back veer 2ADI
  9. You're right old man you're smarter than every coach and every school district in East Texas. You're tougher too. If thunderstorms happen Thursday you're good for a normal week pushing it to Friday. If they happen Friday everyone gets playoff week cut into. So if we are dealing in your what ifs. Moving the game is still smarter than your "show up wait show up again scenario."
  10. So your plan is to show up wait, literally in a thunderstorm to the point of moving it to Saturday. Go home. Come back Saturday. Instead of show up Thursday and play. How is the later more inconvenient?
  11. If there is a lightning strike within 10 miles or so per UIL rules (and basic human logic) kids aren't allowed to be outside playing for 30 minutes from the strike. Every strike within this radius resets the 30. Per UIL rules a game can not be started after midnight. If the forecast is THUNDERstorms (big difference from rain from last week that still had lightning delay games), knowing the rules teams can make adjustments to get the game in. Week 11 noone wants to push it to Saturday. Stop making everything about a "soft generation". If having kids out in lightning is how "you did it in your day" maybe you and everyone else were just stupid.
  12. Pewitt may be the best 1 win team in the state. Seems they need to get defense worked out. They've put up a good bit of points for a slot t team.
  13. I didn't see that at all. What I saw was Winny can't throw or RUN unless its Finney. I also saw Winny doesn't want to run. Threw against multiple 7 man coverages. The three man front of MV controlled the run game if it wasn't Finney. Now Finney's use of his legs was surprising and he's going to give defensive staffs worries, but I saw no ground and pound outside of him. Winny will need more than that to beat Potts by 14. I also imagine Potts' offense is a little better than wildcat left, wildcat right.
  14. Hughes Springs gets the dub in that old boring offense Harmony wanted to leave behind.
  15. Capitalism at work on both sides. Ads make money. People using the app makes the ads make money. If the people using the app aren't happy they stop using the app no money. App then must adapt to make consumers happy and make money. Complaints are relevant, free or not. The biggest issue is there isn't a competitor to the Friday Night Lights app. If enough people aren't happy there may soon be one. I don't think it would take a computer genius to create the old format (that people were happy with), and combine some sort of ad interface that is efficient and profitable. At the rate of complaints and lack of compliments the most profitable thing for the Friday Night Lights app may be to change.
  16. The Liberty vs Coastal Carolina Bowl game, this created a wild finish.
  17. Historically a tough place to play for some.
  18. It is exhausting to you because obviously reading is difficult for you. You named some of the top programs in the state as the places with community support. No poop man. Its easy to have community support when you are a top 5 program every year. Bland was your closest example to what I was asking for and shocker they fired a community guy that called that place home for two decades. Not because of his buy in to the community but because of WINS. Tell me one place (5 was too hard) that the coach has community support without that support being linked solely to wins.
  19. We can not argue both that a good coach invests in kids and the community over wins, and state wins is what shows a place has it "figured out". That's the mindset that leads to coaches being fired for not reaching expectations. Because if it doesn't look like its figured out fire the coach. Winning is all that matters. No community cares about a coach putting in time with kids, investing in the community, caring about kids, maxing out the potential of your talent etc. Wins. And even more specifically a progression of wins. Winning coaches have been fired for a town feeling like they've become stagnate. And lets be honest, there are only a few schools that come close to having the talent to compete with the first 5 schools on your list. I was specific in what I asked for a reason. There is a reason the saying "There are two types of coaches, those that have been fired and those that will be", rings true for 95% of the coaching world. Outside of the perennial powers that keep towns happy by winning, can you name 5 towns that have not fired their HC for a relatively long time? How many towns exist that understand their potential, and set their standard for their coach around that potential, and his care for the kids?
  20. At this point in the year if you have someone that can limit coaching turnover, and is invested in the community and kids already, give him his shot.
  21. Can you give some examples of these communities? Can you name 5 towns that have not made deep runs in the playoffs are not firing coaches for it?
  22. Any good coach will tell you the first thing is to build relationships and care about kids. Xs and Os second. Your split between what you call a crappy coach and a good coach is a major disconnect. It shows you think coaches are focused on the X's and O's and wins and losses. Coaches prioritize relationships, communities don't. Look no further than the Childress thread. At the end of the day good coaches are fired over wins and losses. A sad reality for young coaches to look forward to.
