I think it's time to change the offense. It's definitely not working!!! When Dieterich first got here two years ago, the offense (triple option) worked at the beginning of the season, but was shut down as the season went on. Once the chances of him changing the triple option to a wishbone or even he Power-I? These kids are not motivated anymore and want a change. These are a very competative group of kids who deserve a chane!!!

Why are you posting this on topix? This is one of the biggest gossip things around ! Every month there is a Backers Club meeting. Why do you go to it and voice your opinion or concerns? Better yet, call the coach and maybe suggest some of your concerns and ideas...Everyone wants a change but until it is being looked at, nothing will change

I do go to the backers club meetings.. I'm not saying he's a bad coach. I'm just saying a change in the offense wouldn't hurt. But I'm told that will not happen. The players would even like to see a new formation.

I will just ask you a question. Have you ever voiced this to the coach or brought it up to any of the coaches? I can understand what you are saying in your post and I will not disagree with you there. Hopefully something good can start happening with the Bobcats

hi all, my name is Chris Hebert i am the president of the Erath Backers Club. And for EHS Graduate please stop coming to the meeting. We don't need another Ass talking about the coach or coaches. You know it's a shame a coaches life is in the hand of a 13,14,15,16,or 17 year old kid. Its that way because of people like you talking shit all the time but to scared to post your name. It's always the coaches fault and thats not a problem, but they cant go and tackle, and they can't go and catch the ball for them or the can't run the ball for them. Every week the coaches give those kids and chance to win and put them in the right place to make a tackle or catch the ball. If it don't happen it's the coaches fault. We made this bed so WE need to sleep in it. And please EHS graduate don't come back to the meeting cause i will look for you. I think i know who you are. Chris Hebert have a good. day

Way to go Chris. My son plays on this team. I have seen a young man start highschool with no confidence and now has confidence in himself. He talks highly of the coaches and the program and loves football. To the people out there who have a problem with the offense or the programs, as Chris said go to the meetings, talk with the coaches, they do listen. Erath has a great sports program all the way around and is building. Give it a chance. Look on the sideline and see the kids who care about football and then take a look in the stands and see how many kids could play but do not. Erath has a lot of talented kids in various sports so give this program a chance. It will work out. Oh and like Chris I am not afraid to say who I am....Kenneth Touchet proud supporter of Erath Athletics...

Chris, I don't think that EHS graduate was slamming the coach. As the president of the backers club I would hope that you would have taken a different approach to his opinion. I am not sure what goes on at the meetings but I would hope that the opinions of the supporters are important. I have a child on the team also. I believe that we have a great athletic program at Erath. But I would also hope that if I did have some concerns, and decided to voice my opinion that i would be able to do so and not be threatened ("I will look for you"). Every coach is going to be judged by the fans and supporters, its the way the world works.

You are right Another cat fan. But we dont need those kind of supporters at the meeting if you talking about the coaches behind their backs and then you will shake their hand at the meeting. And the comment about "i will look for you " was not a threat i guess what i wanted to say was i will be watching out for them. And if you have a kid on the team you should come to see what goes on at the meetings. And if Erath graduate would know football Erath has various number of formations, but if they wouldnt be complaning all the time they would see that. Just my opinion!!!!!!!

Erath's offensive system really IS terrible.. First of all why run the Wing T when your O-Line isn't the focal point of your team..? It seems to me that the focal point is the speedy back; whenever he touches the ball good things happen.

I really like the power I way more than this boring/PREDICTABLE offense (Which just so happens to seem to run 5 different plays..?

No diss to the coaching staff intended. Just a THOUGHT

Since when did Erath start running the Wing-T? I think that would be news to even the players and coaches.

Hey Chris!!! Before trashing your supporters, why don't you read my comment again. I never once trashed the coaching staff. I just merely made a suggestion or a thought like you would say. I go to every football game and I am a big supporter of Erath High School Athletics. I think Erath has a great athletic program. Look at the fans in the stands. Look at the players on the field. we once dressed out 70-80 kids. What we have now? maybe half.

For being the President of the Backer's Club and calling me an ass for just voicig my opinion, it goes to show you how much class you have as a leader.

I admire what the coaches do on the field and criticism comes witht the job. That's not what I was trying to do here as you implied. All I was saying/suggesting was that maybe a change in the offense wouldn't hurt. Didn't say get rid of the triple option.

You have Coy who is nicknamed the TRAIN who is powerful and explosive and you have Cole who is one of the fastest guys in the Parish/District and his talent is being wasted with this offense. This guy might average 5-7 carries a game. Just a thought, with Coy and Cole in the back field (Power -I), you would have a double threat and an explosive backfield. Both of these guys can run the ball and we have the line to run this. Again, I'm not saying get rid of the triple option all together. Just throw something different at the defense. Don't you think?

I hate to say this, but as the lost add up the comments will get stronger and louder. Nobody likes to watch their child get waxed every Friday night. Winning builds tradition. Until their are more wins than lost this thread and others will become more popular. Also, whether you like it or not, the more we lose the more the coach will be questioned. Just my thoughts as an Erath alumni with all my children out of school.
