What is the problem, the guys have won one game.

A school as big as Barren County should never be with one win and looking at their schedule they will be lucky to get four wins this year.

Is the problem the coaching, I can't believe they have an alum of Allen County coaching at barren county.

We need a barren county alum coaching. I can think of a few who are head coaches elsewhere in Kentucky - Brandon Combs (Cumberland Co.) Brad Johnson (Ohio Co. girls) Deron Breeze (Bracken Co.) just to name a few.

Barren County should never be this bad, we lost to Caverna for goodness sake .

In high school, sports is an extension of the classroom. The coach is a teacher first and foremost and the players are students first and foremost. The whole idea behind high school sports is for students to learn, not for fans to go crazy about how many games their team wins.

Although winning is the goal in most sporting activities, the ultimate goal of high school sports is for students to learn.

Keep that in mind when talking about your beloved Trojans.

I dis agree with you FYI and agree with Trojan HOrse.

I bet you are one of those people who like to give all the kids a trophy for participating.

HIgh School sports is to show kids that you have winners and losers in life just like the game you play. you have winners who sell more at their company therefore they get the better office, the better car and the better looking girl.

If these kids get used to being a loser now they will accept it all their life.

Obviously you don't know Warren Cunningham. He's a fine coach and a great role model for those young men. All the talent is simply young this year. Plus they lost a gob of seniors from last years squad. Give them a couple years and they'll be fine. Just because the school is big, don't mean that all of the students in the school are interested in sports. People seem to have a hard time understanding that concept. The majority of Barren's population is good ole country boys who have no interest in athletics.

if you are disappointed in this years trojan basketball team, then come across town to scottie gym and check out a good basketball team. this is a good sound team that has the potential to win the region this year. very experienced team back this year with the addition of the hall kid and coach hall. just hang in there , the trojans are young and they will be back in a couple of years. just remember they have been the team on top for years and now it is in a rebuilding stage, all it takes is time..

My response to Alumni is there is several boys at Barren County High School who would be playing basketball and would be better than several on that team problem is they do not have the right last name .This is not something that has just begun Coach Cunningham is a good coach this team was determined a few years back by previous coaches who chose to let potentially good players sit on the bench . There is some good players on this team but they can't play alone. As with most Barren County sports it depends on who you are and who you know as to whether you play or sit on the bench . No good basketball player or football player wants to sit on the bench watch their team get beat time after time when they know they could be playing and do much better than the ones out on the floor. Hopefully Coach Cunningham will turn things around and change this because I think in high school it the sport should be about winning not whether your friends child got to play or not.

AMen fyi..... there are lot of kids that set the bench that are just as good as the ones on the floor.....Seems there good enough to make the team but not good enough to play ..guess they are just used to practice the other kids....

How can anyone say that there are better players in the school...if they are good enough they will play, no one knows what kind of attitude players have at practice and other complications...you cant judge...however there has been a few coaching mistakes this year

Yeah someday be as good as Glasgow? I guess thats why Barren has beat Glasgow everytime hey have played them for the last seven years. And even though Glasgow in udefeated this year, the game coming up against Glasgow and Barren this Friday not shouldnt be any exception to the last seven years. Barren will come out ready to prove something to themselves and the community and will pull out the upset on their home court and keep the winning steak alive over the scotties.

Well, it will depend on which Refs that Barren can get to officiate for them. Remember it will be on their home floor; so it won't be easy for Glasgow to win there, but they should.

Funny. Yeah I pretty much agree with you on that one. But they do LOVE their diesel smoking dually's with those chrome stacks belching out black smoke and having the hottest chick sitting up beside them spitting his chew out the window. HA HA
