Bacon should have a good team. They hired more than 6 coaches and wives to get them here. Jobs given to them instead of people born and raised in Alma. The Booster Club needs to raise more money bec. they pay for all of their rents. That is Ok bec. we won. Who needs SS teachers or nurses for the other 95% of students in the school that does not play football?

Yes, it's sad that so much money gets pumped into football (and its staff) and the actual "education" suffers. I've heard there are so many cuts to schools from the state, but apparently the school gets money from somewhere...new coaches, teaching positions for coaches. Of course, I'm sure we'll hear that most of it comes from touchdown club or football game revenues. Hmmm! You can't make me believe it.

jobs were not created for these coachs. they filled vacant positions. touchdown club aint payin nobodys rent. and the gate $for the last 2 home games has averaged something like $16 k a game ( not counting concessions) I think new coaching staff was a great move but do wish some of that $could be used for educational purposes and not just athletics.

Musicman, I agree. I played in the band, BUT I also supported (and still support) the football team! On that note, good OR bad, if you CARE about having a good team, come out and support them. Don't be a fair weather fan! I didn't miss a home game for the last 3 seasons and stood by our Raiders, even though times were bad. NOW, the fans are being rewarded. The game against Irwin was AWESOME Friday night, and I'm so proud of these young men! Our Raiders are rising again.*sigh* Now, if only the Dawgs would do the same...

When i was in high school bacon county had an awesome band. Noland Bishop was the band director and we put on a heck of a halftime show. Also, we had a stage band at the basketball games. Bacon County was rockin in the 70's! As we marched to the football field, playin the street beat, Kenneth Seabrook lead us as the drum major, high steppin across the 50 yard line with a lil touch of soul! Interracial relationships were umheard of. Blacks stayed on east side of town and whites on their side! Bacon County was best known for their great basketball teams. I recall dunkin wasnt allowed back in these days. But Bobby Marion would ask coach RT if it was ok ((to slam one) after we had a big lead. Bobby would slam it home, the crowd would go crazy and technical foul would be called. Those were the good ole days

i think its sad that people are more concerned about football than the education of our children.These new coatches came with a heavy price tag. Did you know that our county has stopped prayer before the games now?
