What a joke. The guy acts like he knows alot about football and weight lifting but all he does is scream and strut around like he's a real bad ass. He made my football experience at NC miserable. He's also a terrible teacher. I'd like to punch him in the mouth.

If you wouldn't have spent your football experience sucking dicks in the locker room the coach may not have screamed quite as much! HOMO!!!

Jones is the weakest link in the coaching staff. Has no clue what he is doing and will teach nothing. McDowell and Jones are a perfect fit as they are both alike. Get ready for another 2 win season. And Guest your comment tells me that possibly you might be involved with the program. Either way, I dont think there is a Jerry Sandusky problem here. Idiot.

Not sure which Coach Jones you're talking about. There are 2 at NC. I can only comment on Coach Brian Jones, who DOES know what he is talking about regarding teaching & coaching. Granted, he's not had much to work with in the last few years in regards to dedicated, hard-working players. Before you comment, no I'm not related to either Jones coaches, nor am I employed at NC. I am a parent who follows their football program & players. If some of the parents would realize their son is not NFL material & quit backstabbing coaches, maybe they could do a decent job with the team.

While students may not be NFL material there is talent there. How many games did NC give up in the 4th quarter? That's not lack of talent that's a lack if coaching. How many games were there more than 5 plays used within the offense? Again lack of coaching. How games did the quarterback run the ball more than the backfield? Really bad coaching displayed right there. There is no player developement in the lower ranks. Blame under coaches. Put the blame on lack of talent. I say a good coach develops good players.

U can't blame coaches for the quarterback running the ball too much, and giving up losses late in the game! Last I checked the coach wasn't out there in pads playing the game! And the comment coaches develop good players??? Yes coaches make kids with athletic ability better players but if u have no athletic ability at all there is absolutely nothing a coach can do to change that....sorry!! And from my years of playing NC and getting my ass absolutely pounded.... It kind of feels good to see them on the other end now!! And p.s McDowell is probably the best football player to ever put on a NC uniform so I think he knows a little bout what he's doing out there!!

McDowell is clueless.And there is just enough talent there, that they should win more games. It is a 5 play offense and no one wins running only 5 plays. And good coaches will get the most and more out of what they have. There is no desire here. That is how they keep their jobs. They blame it on the kids. And once again Jones is like the rest, he has no idea what he is doing. There are R.J.F.L. coaches who could do a better job with these kids. My son played for some of these guys like Cole, Gibson, Vaughn and a few others. No joke, these guys knew what they were doing. I have lived my entire life watching NC Football and this is by far the worst. And to add my 2 cents, Will Compton was the best player to come out of North County. By far. Face it folks, it will be anoher long season.

Some teams have won the state title running 5 plays, but those teams have talent!! Let's all agree that the competition NC Is playing now isn't any where close to how tough it was less then 5 years ago! All those schools are down and the whole area is down in football except for Farmington! No Jfl football coach can step up and coach a varsity football team I'm sorry, if they thought they could they would have the degrees to do so! And I'll agree with Compton he's playing D1 football but McDowell is the best qb to ever play at NC! and I am not a NC guy I went to a school that NC used to pound!

Really? teams have won state on 5 plays? Name one team that has. Also a coach can put a boot up a players A$$ if he is not doing as instructed. so yes a coach has a lot to do with plays and who runs the ball. I am sorry if you dont agree but the sun sits and raises with a coach. NC just doesnt have a good coach to lead the students who have the heart to show up and play. I agree there is plenty of talented coaches on the RJFL level. There is a lot of good talent that comes out of that level too. BTW a college degree does not make a coach a coach.

Get you head out of the McDowell cloud. Big deal that he lead a team to loss a state game. Plenty of players do that. So what that he played on a D2 football team. D Gibson plays for that same team. I played basketball with a boy who played D2 college basketball. He only saw 2 minutes of play time during any high school basketball game.

Well put. Like I said 2 wins this coming season. I am glad someone else understands the big picture.

First off semo is where McDowell played and last I checked that was d1! I'm not on mcdowells dick, I don't even know the dude what so ever! I just love the fact that every parent thinks they can coach the team! U guys don't see what goes on in practice everyday and the effort the kids put out! NC has always had a lot of pride in their football program and it's sad that they are continuing to loose bc little more then 5 years ago they where pretty successful, but do they have the athletes now that those teams did?? I'll give u Compton but besides that anyone go on to play at a higher level.?? Just saying man the whole area is very poor at foot ball that's why west side of the state wins state championships!!!! I got rolled by NC all high school so I'm not doubting with the right athletes coming through with the tradition in place you guys can turn it around! Not hating man just stating the facts

It's still on the coach. There are plenty of good athletes at NC but they are just not being motivated and pushed correctly by the coaches. Which brings us back to NC needing a better coaching staff. If the coaches did a better job at getting those boys into shape and wanting to try harder, maybe we'd see more guys continuing to play after high school.

My bad Semo is NCAA D1 AA. That's a step above D2. They play in the Ohio Balley conference with schools such as Murry state. Guys can walk onto such teams and play.

It is being said that football in our area is weak. Ste gen valley marched to state this year. Didn't Farmington make it to the final four in state this year? NC had to pethetic wins this year and gave up how many games in the 4th? I don't blame the students. They can only play as good as the coaching they receive. I watched a southern Illinois basket ball team a few years back go to state 6 years in a row. No one on those teams went on to play college ball. That was because the coach turned a bunch of simi talented players into a team. The coach left and the school hired a new coach. The team that went to state the prior year never went back to state. It's in the coaching.

I think most of you guys are missing the main problems at NC. 1)It's not so much Coach McDowell is a bad coach. From talking with a very good friend of mine that he coached with at Farmington, The problem is how he relates to players. He knows his x and o's, but seems to have a hard time getting players to buy in to his "program".2)Absolute lack of quality assistants and facilities. Has anyone been over to watch the "coaching" going on at the junior high? Someone please explain to me why the jr. high doesnt run the same system as the high school. The only coach worth a shit at the jr. high is Chad Easter. He's not Vince Lombardi, but I would hate to see if the other 3 guys(I won't call them coaches)ran the show. The RJFL does a good job getting our kids ready, not great but good. I know most of the coaches personaly and played with a few. Not all are good coaches, but some are.As my buddy at Farmington said "We hire coaches and let them teach NC hires teachers and hopes they can coach." Last few things Farmington's commitment to football from the kids to the admininstration is much better then our's right now. Until we stop bitching and do something nothings is gonna change. To the bitch that said he would like to punch coach Jones in the face nothing is stopping you big boy. Go ahead see how that goes for you. I suspect you're a little mommas boy that didnt get his way when you tried to play and he called you out. To the guy that said Mcdowell was the best player at NC, you're wrong. He was very good but not even the best player on that team PJ Jones was. No question. We need to come together as a school and stop bitching. Get involved be it the school board, RJFL or just suppporting the team on Friday nights. Go big blue!!

Yeah I am clueless. Coach Jerry Kill, University of Minnesota, was my next door neighbor for several years and help trained my coaches in a local kids football league. He had several walk on's in his football program. Many programs have walk on's because they dont have the recruiting budgets to go on national recruiting campaigns. Those players end up in major D1 programs playing for national titles. So yeah I will set home an live with my clueless self. No actually I will set with you in the stands and cheer on NC next 2-0 season. Cheers.

You are truly right. It is in the coaching. And the kids here will never experience that feeling. Atleast not with this coaching staff. You think this staff would step down before they ruin the program completely. They need to realize they are easily replaceable.

Interesting enough when coach Leads lead NC to 6 wins over 2 season he wasn't allowed to claim that he had no under coaches. Leads really didn't because all the coaches jumped ship including coach McDowell. Leads was run out of town by those who wanted McDowell to Coach. Hope your happy because you got what you wanted.

If my next door neighbor was a surgeon and told me how to operate then I guess I'm certified. Who cares who you lived around. Just to let you know nearly every program, Division 1 through NAIA has several walk ons on the team. Doesnt translate to playing time. I will be in the stands next year, but I'm the first to admit this program is in shambles. The coaching overall hasnt been good since Haug left and now that the talent is "average" it's showing. We couldnt win with a big 12 linebacker and a division 1aa signal caller.
