When will Delphi learn? An 0-5 record under the same leadership that blew the season around 2000 under Vince Burpo. It was bad enough having him under the first ego reign, but he just cannot get the job done. He has no talent development skills, he berates players, demands they play in situations that are perilous to their health and against physician orders, and has threatened and tried to intervene in players private post-high school plans if they do not glorify him. He is living in some kind of deluded dream where he thinks he is the coach in Friday Night Lights... except that he has enough enablers that keep him on top of the pile. He has not performed to the standards that the community should accept and he does not produce the quality product he did at Frontier. He also has not performed like great classic coaches of the past... Tony Berto and Randy German. It is time for a change in Delphi athletics and it starts with getting the tick off of the athletic department. Let Vince live out his dreams elsewhere!!

This guy is an idiot! Probably has or had a kid that didn't want to work or lacked the skill to play a certain position on the Delphi football team. What has Delphi done since Burpo got the shaft? Nothing! It's not about the x's and o's it's about the Jimmy's and Joe's and Delphi for a long time has not had many Jimmy's and Joe's. Just wait, if under some miracle and Delphi wins, their current coach will bolt in a second. Burpo is a good coach, good person, and expects players to work hard. That's the problem! People from Delphi want everything handed to them without putting in the work or dedication.

Yep, I probably am an idiot but I know all of those things to be fact as I lived through them. No, thankfully I don't have a kid there and was smart enough to get out when I did but I did enough for that town for a lifetime. Facts are facts and that egocentric prick isn't worthy of the lauding he gets. I never claimed that Delphi has the personnel to play with the big boys but I know the heart. I know and expect hard work. Your personal attack without knowing me only proves your allegiance without objectivity. Get off of the tit before you start spitting out venom.
