When will the bobcats finally get with the times and groom a quarterback that can run the spread offense. This is the offense of the future. We are so easy to read.. Gage Arnold under center we will pitch or handoff cause the boy can't throw accurate 10 yards. If Kegley is under center we will throw but to 1 receiver and he isn't accurate either. We are so damn predictable and I don't need a coaching degree to see that. WE should be grooming quarterbacks and recievers in the 7th grade to get ready for high school. We will always have the runnning backs to run out of the spread. The Dead T is exactly what it implies "DEAD". This is not the 70's or 80's. Teams are going to the spread and hurry up offense and I see quarterbacks in Jr. high that can throw accurate and timed passes better than any Sr. High player or Jr. high quarterback that we have. It is time to wake up and make the change. If we don't change we will be at the bottom of the conference year after year for along time. Don't tell me I need to get my degree if I don't like the way things are being run, cause I have played football and now how the game is played. It doesn't take a freaking rocket scientist to figure it out.

We don't have the talent or the numbers to run the spread. We need to use traps, hot passes, middle screens and hurry up. This will best use the talent and speed we now have. It's not in the complexity it's in the execution and taking advantage of the other mans mistakes. The young men also need to be taught how to block and pull block. They don't know how to drive and stay low until the whistle blows. They stand straight up. This is not the players fault! Place a 2" pipe one foot in front of the line and just over their helmet and they would all get put in the hospital due to neck injury. Love ya Cats

Well no playoffs this year!!! Cats lose 26-21. The best they can do is ruin Piggott's chances next Thurs. at home. I bet Coach Hendrix will be smiling all the way to Corning next week. Get the basketballs ready!!!! All the big talk before the season started on how we were going to dominate the conference came back to bite them in the ass. You can't half ass practice and eat at McDonald's everyday and expect to compete with the heavyweight teams in our division. Our off season weight program is a joke. We don't play in the 7 on 7 league program in the summer, which is basically running pass plays and learning the spread offense. I know of 7 or 8 teams around N.E. arkansas that play in that league and it shows on friday nights. If Corning wants to get back to the top they are going to have to rededicate themselves to working at getting better and the coaching staff has to have the dedication to see that it gets done. I as a former player and fan am getting tired of going out on Friday nights and watching our kids and coaches play and show no emotion. I know I am not the only one who agrees. I know there will be supporters who say the kids play hard and the coaches do their best, but they are just lying to themselves and everyone else who are true bobcat fans.

I agree with some of your points big cat. But we do have some talent and alot of the other schools that are running the spread have the same numbers as us. We just need to start teaching our 7th graders to learn how to catch a football the correct way and find a quarterback that can learn to throw the ball. Yes we don't know how to block or pull block cause we don't spend enough time teaching this. We will always have the power backs, but we need to learn how to play pass and catch also. We are so predictable, that a coach from another team can come and scout and leave the game by the end of the first quarter or call another coach from the conference and scout us over the phone. It is time to try something new whether it is good or bad. The Dead T is DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!!!!!

A Power I with 2 wide outs and a 1&1/2 yard split on the line would give you more flexibility. You could pull and trap or pass from this formation. You always have a larger risk of turning the ball over if you pass in a high school game more than 30-40 % of the time. Let the other team make mistakes and take advantage.

This sure is a "touchy subject". think about it. if you were a member of the coaching staff here is what you would be thinking, "gee that seventh grader sure shows natural talent, but best I can tell has no family or business or financial connections, so my local standing and future benefits will not be much if I work with this one!

on the other hand if I'll work with this one or that one,do the best I can with them, win or loose I'll be treated nicely, and when it is raise or bonus time I'll be the first one in the easy chain setting in the corner office being patted on the back"!

welcome to reality and the way things work here.

some call it brown nosing. others say it is simply knowing which side of your bread is buttered. the simple truth is we all would like to eat buttered rather than dry toast.

I'm not bitching at the school board or coaching staff, but the reality is we all like to eat well and will fallow the path of least resistance when it comes to our jobs and careers.

when you walk into the corner office you wish to be treated well!
sorry if I offend anyone, but reality is something we face each day.

Larger towns have/stand a better chance of finding & developing talent than the small ones with their little tight nit social click.

any of us can see what we could become if we had free rein, but the reality is we are not allowed this freedom.
we are forced to deal with life as we see it day to day and make the most of it.

which one of us wants to be turned down when it is income related bonus time? are there any of us that wish to come home and tell our families it didn't go well in the office,'cause we went with what is best, but sorry no Christmas bonus this year and I'll be looking for a new job next year.

look they may not have talent there but you can develop them into it. if you have the program to do it not just play the season then shut down till summer practice to start up and think u will make it to playoffs. they think that all they do is play football from august till november and that is all they needed. when i went there we thougt about football all year long after the seaason was over we still lifted weight if you wasn't playing basketball or baseball and in the spring we would run track and lifted weight it was mandatory. in the summer we would go and workout at the feildhouse on our own. if you start at a younger age and teach them how to run the spread offense then when they are in high school they will compete and maybe even win a state playoffs

You're full of crap! If you win all of the above will come. If you win and it doesn't, because of the false statements above, then you can go elsewhere with a winning record then the rest will come. If you don't do what is right because of money you have lost before you play. Know what you are talking about before you write.

Corning has opened the application process up for both the high school and junior high head coaching positions. They are looking for someone that knows the spread offense, is willing to have a summer workout program, will do 7 on 7, is willing to help start a peewee program in corning, and is enthusiastic. Has anyone heard yet who has applied? Is their any names out their that they are talking to or want to get? Are their any of the present coaches talking to people they know?

I remember Corning running that darned sweep in the 80's even the QB would lead block - Don Campbell became a legend running the football

I hear Jerry Evans is putting in for the Head Coach Sr. He Knows how to run the spread very well and knows how to put his players where they need to be. I think if he get the job we will see a this bobcat program turn the corner for the best.

He coaches in Searcy, AR. he is from corning and i'm sure he would love nothing more than to turn this team around. the dead T is dead for a reason and Evans runs the spread now so it won't be a problem to do it here.

Yes Jerry Evans coaches in Searcy and they went 1-9 this year. They even have 3 times the talent we do. I don't think this would be a good fit. He may have played here but we need someone that the players will respect and want to play hard for. I am not saying that the players wouldn't play for him but why would he want to come and build this program when searcy has some of the best facilities and talent around. I am sorry but I think the fans would eat him alive especially if he doesn't win. Remember this is Corning!!! Whoever it is, it will take 2 or 3 years to implement his style of play. So it may be a few years before Corning is back to the top of their conference.

i guess you don't know what the hell your talking about. are you a coach? Did you go to college and get a masters like Evans did? If you didn't you don't know. He was the def cord of the Jr.High. He knows what he is doing. that 1-9 record isn't him so you can suck it. The players will play for him I've talk to some of them. so unless you know what your talking about you can shut it!
