Don't think wku would hire Wallace because doesn't David Jaggers and Leachman only support the county schools?

David Jaggers controls the football program - can you say $$$ in new cars for coaches. Elson had to ask David Jaggers how high to jump at one point, plus Jaggers was very thick with the old basketball coach that got fired. Jaggers son is a county baseball coach, Wallace probably isn't in there circle.

Steve, it takes a lot more than cars to control a football program. I'm not sure if these cars are donated or if WKU leases them, or what. But, even IF the coach gets a FREE Yukon from Leachman's, doesn't mean that Jagger's is in control of the program. I can guarantee you that there are a larger donors and contributors to the football program than the amount of a car! It's almost a laughable statement. And Jagger's son is what a coach of Greenwood baseball?? That is apples and oranges to BG football. Jason Jaggers is a great guy, not taking away from him at all. But, Kevin Wallace doesn't have to be in anybody's circle to be eligible for a job. He just doesn't. He can hold his own. I don't think that he's going to WKU this next year, but I think when he retires, he will be offered positions at colleges.

FYI, Steve, idk if you are a disgruntled employee of David Jaggers or what. There are clearly upset people on topix talking about him and his family. But, nothing against David, but he's only the general manager, not the owner...the last I checked!

Take away the assistant coaches at BG and see where the program ends up. They are the reason the Purples got all those wins.

The small minded BGHS sycophants are out in force.
Once again, very little logic being used to support their argument
Coaching a HS in KY is nothing like coaching an FBS program. Wallace may be good, but he ain't seen nothing.
Some JV programs from GA, TX, AL, SC or FL could clean BGHS varsity's clock. Just better programs and football.
He would need a position as an asst to move into a head coach job down the road. Just flat different animals.

Agreed. They have more asst coaches than other schools around. Plus, the caliber of the asst coaches are second to none. Great group of talented coaches.

Wallace is already recruiting players to play at BGHS. So has experiance at that, and it does help hes an egotistic jerk. Thats what it takes to a be collage coach, but he cant make that kind of jump. Kentucky high school football ranks up there with maybe Alaska with amount of talent. Maybe he should go one step up at a time. Heard that PJ's Beauty Collage needs a coach.
Who taught you how to spell college? Kevin Wallace?

and BGHS would clean the varsity clocks of multiple teams in those states. I lived in Florida for several years after leaving BG and the Purples would have been all right against a large number of teams there. In fact, a lot of the teams I saw were comparable to Logan County.

Kentucky has, what, 200 or 300 schools playing football amongst 6 classes. The states you mentioned have thousands of high schools, naturally, there has to be some much better than BGHS. BGHS is good, football experts have had them ranked high nationally for the past two seasons.

I don't think Wallace would be shocked by the level of competition in other states. BGHS has competed in regional passing leagues for at least the past 10 years.

Take a look at the FBS teams in the top 20 and look at the players from Florida alone. Your argument fails. How many BGHS players will even sniff a top 20 FBS team?
I made my point.

You sound a little biased there. I agree with Lateesha. The level of football in KY is sub-par to our southern neighbors. Just a fact. Basketball is a different subject.:)

Didn't Trinity produce a top 3 national prospect...and Wallace beat them at there place.

When Taggart leaves, wku will always be a 1 A nobody once UK steps up and Louisville continues to dominate. Harbaugh didn't have the best record until his last few years and he was never on the chopping block.

I'm a fan of Kentucky athletics for sure but this belief that these other states are football meccas just isn't true. Plenty of bad teams all around and I'd say the talent is in proportion to the population in most places.

I guess what I'm saying is that the top teams in KY can more often than not compete with the same top but similar sized teams in these other states.

Trinity was named the number 1 football team in the country in 2011.

BGHS has never beaten Trinity either.

Seriously,
You need to see the world. The athletes south of here are bigger and faster in football. Trinity being #1 was just a rating. Never believed that.
Only way to compare is FBS teams with KY players on a top 20 team. Few and far between.

Western will always be a stepping stone. Can't pay what bigger schools in bigger conferences can. Willie has a family how can you blame him for taking more money at a bigger conference school. Start writing bigger checks WKU. Those stands will be empty in 2 yrs. Fact!!

If we are talking Wallace I would much rather hire Mike Rogers. He could hire Wallace for recruiting.... Someone with no intellect started mentioning Wallace for the job. I think it is a good joke. Thanks for the laugh. Seriously, thanks for the laugh.

I vote Wallace. I mean give the guy a chance he has done very well with Bowling Greens football program and who knows he may even stick around for more than a year or two. It is sad that Willie Taggart is doing what he is doing after he said he wouldn't cause this is home!

You'd throw a guy with no college experience into a head coach position?

That's smart.
