Who is the new Coach that replaced Dan Wall? Why is it that all the players don't get to play? I always thought Basketball was a team effort. If all the players are required to practice, then all the [layers should be allowed equal play time during a game. I has been attending FKHS Basketball games and have noticed some of the team players remain suited and seated the entire game. I f players practice they should be allowed equal playing time. I'm sure players are better than others so if this is the name of they game why do you need so many ? Seems like five would be enough. Just a thought..........Anyone else ??

Perhaps some players are benched due to grades, behavior, injuries?

The new coach is Tyler Thompson, and he has done a good job with those young men.

Sounds like to me, you are a mama who thinks she has a superstar player who is not as a player as you think he is. Well, at least on the court.

some players are bench fodders because they arent as good, they play reserve minutes to give the MUCH BETTER players a breather, their job is to come into the game and do just enough to keep the lead or maintain control of the game while stars rest for 3-4 minutes

sorry about your son being a failure, he will get over it

Or when the starters get in foul trouble. Does FKHS have a JV team? Maybe baby doll's kid needs to be on it. This is not rec league. At this level, playing time is not guaranteed and must be earned.

FKHS is 16-3 this year and 7th in the state rakings. Thompson is doing a much better job with the team and players then coach Wall. Nado has already won the SEK district in Thompsons first year as coach. Results on the court=playing time, very simple facts I don't know why it's so hard to understand.

It is high school basketball not rec league not all players deserve or are athletic enough tonplay. You havenronplay to win at this level. FKHS has alot of talent and have a very good chance at another state appearence. But the showboating and talking they do before and during the gamebis embarassing to the school. Just play the game and let that donthe talking.

I don't have a son, but I do go to the games. If their grades are bad they can't even suit. Just saying Nado has a good time but seems all the Jr's are benched and I think it wise to play them more because they will be the team next year if there is one.

I think Coach is doing a great job. Some times I notice we lose our flow when he subs but I understand some starters need rest now and then. I agree with Knight Rider that the show boating needs to go. Ever wonder why the officials always seem to call more crappy calls on us than the other teams, I think it's because they see the show crap themselves and thinks, well I will show them. Start acting like gentlemen on the court.

The game was a blow out last night. Coffeyville has talent on the team but too much attitude and not enough discipline. You have to nip that the minute you take over coaching a talented team like C'vil has. You can't just allow them to play street ball and hope that just their athletisim wins the game. It doesn't work like that last nights game proved it. That isn't teaching those boys anything and the attitudes they have will not be tolerated at the next level so they are really being set up for failure. Even if you have to sit one, 2 or 3 of your "stars".. that's what you have to do in order to get control back over your team.!

Stupid. Nobody on that team is going anywhere so shut up. Not good enough and their attitude doesn't change that. You can tell which of you are chicks by how little you know about sports.

Have to agree. Anyone one that questions the talent and athleticism of Nado Basketball team has either not watched them or knows nothing of talent or athleticism. However, seems a bit harsh to jump on the coach over one bad beat. They are conference champs so I'd say they did pretty well so far. Hell even the best of teams have bad nights.
I will say that you are correct, that Nado does seem to get a little out of hand at times. Their game really starts w their defense and most of their points are scored in transitions before the opponent has time to set up the defense. Once Nado plays shoddy defense, they are in trouble because they cannot run an offense against a well set up defense. Nado's speed and athleticism make the transition offense their strength. Lack of discipline on the other hand, kills them if they cannot work of the fast break and have to penetrate a set defense. If a pud knocker like me can see this, I am sure Coach can see it too and is doing his damndest to get the kids to see it. Maybe this game will serve as a good lesson. Still have a great shot at going to state. Readjust, Refocus, seek revenge, GO NADO!

AGREED.. and I should have worded it different about the coach. I just think he needs to be comfortable enough to discipline those boys. It's hard to come into talent and attitude all at once and to discipline but try and earn respect at the same time. He is young and inexperienced.. but have no doubt he knows the game and will get better each year.

i totally agree that everyone has bad nights. as for the coaching i think he is doing a good job and he is trying to put discipline into the program and earn respect at the same time, you can see that in his coaching. don't you think thats probably why the knight kid didn't play in the game last night?

No talent that will take them anywhere other than CCC's bench, and that's only for Newton. You idiots will find out the hard way and nobody will listen to that young punkass coach either.

And no girls don't know shit about sports. If it wasn't for men chicks wouldn't know what sports are.

I believe the KNight kid sat out because he got two T's in previous games.. and has to sit out a game.
