Re: What makes some schools good every year and some not so good every year

All I'm saying is, in the hierarchy of program success, good coaching, in my opinion, is not at the top. Again, it is not negligible, but not the greatest determining factor of overall success. Does a coach have to be very competent, absolutely yes.

Re: What makes some schools good every year and some not so good every year

Coaching is vastly overrated. Not saying it is negligible. But overrated.

Re: WK 7: Wheelersburg (5-1) @ Waverly (6-0)

To be fair, on our way home from the game it was hammering lightning pretty good from Piketon to lucasville. Big flashes air every 20 secs or so.

Re: 0-3 East @ 3-0 Green

I always love when people say "you haven't played anyone" crap. Greens the second smallest program next to Notre Dame... Who the hell do you expect them to play????

Re: Wheelersburg 28 Ironton 6

My take without being there: Ironton is much improved. Wheelersburg still won by 3 scores. Am I missing something? No you’re not. Ironton is much improved. Did make burg play hard and burg won by three scores. Both teams played a solid game but both have things that they can improve on. Both should...

Nine lane track.....top four clocking from each location of each division. Four locations for each division make 16 runners plus the next two best clockings making 18 runners. Two heats of 9.
66 is correct. First year for the "wild card" additions. Imho, should've included field events as well.

Two of them also made the regional podium in the 1600 as well running 4:35 and 4:36 respectively. They actually qualified in the 4x800 with a foreign exchange student from Swed...

Re: 2018 Ironton Head football coach

You guys make it seems like running the spread is extremely complicated. When run and taught correctly, it’s not. It’s a handful of plays that can be run out of multiple formations. Just because you change a formation or tempo doesn’t mean the assignment or fundamentals change. In college, we had o...

Re: 2018 Ironton Head football coach

If you think basic, physical offensive schemes limit the ability to beat top notch talented teams, I must vehemently disagree. If you think every team needs to run a "modern" or "diverse" scheme to win, you watch too much TV and probably haven't tried to implement one without the pieces. A good coac...

Re: Future of Green Bobcat Football

This is just sad.. I know football brings in money for the school. If they decide not to have football next season, how will this financially impact the school? Would think the majority would go to Burg or Ironton due to geography . Hope it doesn't come to that. Tough situation. The district would ...
