Well before ya go and quote me...i didnt post any names..sounds like maybe one that got in trouble was yours..the point is simple..this school system..specifically the a.d. and varsity coach do not seem to care about the team as much as individual athletes..that is proven each losing season we have..if the starters werent chosen by name and fathers then you could guarantee a turn around..until then..enjoy the losses

Maybe they could have. I bet their problem had less to do with coaching and more to do with the fact that their work ethic and attitude wasn't on the same level as their talent. That's probably the biggest problem with CHS athletics.

OMG, there's a realistic thinker on Connersville Topix!!!
I'm going to sport my gray hair and report that back when I was a student at CHS, Myron Dickerson (a tough guy who taught me to drive a car) coached a State championship basketball team, Jim Loeds and Joe Heavy terrorized football players who later had a winning season (ask Jerry Ellis), and there wasn't a baseball field south of the currently-wasted real estate aka: the football stadium. These were REAL COACHES who were allowed to DO THEIR JOB. The now-departed Pam N had a different idea, and drove some away that could mentor these young men and re-focus their minds from Twitter and the latest cell phone of choice. Coaches are NOT "friends" to those they over-see - they are "mentors". There's a difference. The FCSC needs to hire an old school consultant to define what a "Coach" is - then hire that person - then let him/her DO THEIR JOB!

'Gotta do a DITTO with the post offered by "reality". I'm not a baseball follower, so I'm shortchanged with regards to this topic, but I'll toss-in my support for "tough Coaches". Last Fall I came here to support the embattled Mark Kirk—who inherited a downright dysfunctional CHS football program. After a beating (yet dozens of "agreements" with my posts here), it was edifying that the 2011/12 team managed a sectional victory for the first time in over a decade. Like him (or-not) Kirk can add that to his resume. Furthermore, as the uncle of a CHS student athlete, I hear that the student "vibe" on Kirk was POSITIVE. They "respected him". That is usually the case when a "tough guy" manages to motivate a delivery of the goods. I tend to land on the side of "tough guys" who coach tough sports, and I liked Kirk - "barefoot hillbilly" comment aside!
CHS has some highly-successful sports teams and quality coaching that is associated with them (see: Soccer and Wrestling to cite a few). They are not marquee sports though, and the BBall and FBall past continues to allude the former criterion of notoriety here. I can only comment on football—as I am a former college club Rugby player... CHS needs to draw heavier (but FIT) men to run the ball. When I see a starter who weighs 170lbs (allegedly fit), I'm shaking my head. Get the big boys off Facebook and onto the football field! Interestingly, a tough Coach is often the best motivation for a young man to venture on to the team. Boys (secretly) look-for and desire commanding adult guidance.
I can't reliably visit the politics of the FCSB, but it would appear that "Reality" has a fair appraisal, and those that govern our school system need a lesson in the role and conduct of a Coach. Tough = GOOD, so GO FOR IT!

A minute after I posted my comment here, I realized that Jery had passes-away in his prime. Topix does not provide for a comment removal or edit (they should). I am sad also (and embarrised). Apologies :'(
Jerry and Marty attended CHS when I did, and it is difficult to share their age and not expect to see them at a reunion. I didn't hang with Marty B, but I knew Jerry well. He helped me learn to lift weights in Jr High gym on Grand Ave. in the 7th grade. He was an AWESOME MAN!

I see a few here have awarded me with a "heart". I don't deserve that. I read earlier in a News Examiner series online that Jerry and Marty had passed. It was obvious that I was orbiting a distant sun when I callously made my former post. I am sorry – as Jerry and I were Jr High friends, and I should have been better informed and more respectful.
In the 7th grade, Jerry and I shared a gym class hosted by the notorious Joe Heavy [a CHS football Coach]. Jerry was black in an era of racial conflict [1967], yet I accepted him as my friend as he screamed "common, lift 150-pounds, small-Tom!" He was my coach of sorts, and his race mattered naught to me. He was one that a scrawny white boy could take a few pointers from – I was an underdeveloped yute lunching with Barr White before 1PM gym class—where Jerry Ellis introduced to weights. Many years would pass before I appreciated their value. I should have remembered his premature passing before I clicked "post" in this thread. PLEASE allow me to take this opportunity to fondly remember Jerry Ellis.

Jared's group only liked Gable because he let them do anything they wanted to do, they even smoked at practices.

If they would pick the best, in all sports, not who you are, they might be able to do something in good old C'ville. World series will be the same thing!!!! Come on pick the best, not your kids or just a name. Really we have the talent out there, lets see it!

The best athelete I've ever seen from C'ville was Phil Cox.He had the most perfect jump shot I ever seen by a high school player.And was very good at the high jump in track.His jumping ability enhanced his basketball skills.I know he too went down the road of desrtruction due to drugs,but he could of been a good college player,and maybe pro.Who knows?
Bullington may still make it to the majors.He was playing in Japan last year.Havnt heard about this year.

Due to budget cuts this year, Connersville and Laurel are sharing one baseball for the whole season. It's told that anyone hitting a homerun and losing it will be suspended.

Zat true?
