I hate to see all the bashing of SGHS. I agree with some of whats said, but one things is for sure...It takes only the 5 young ladies on the floor to loose a game. They have to listen to the coaches, if thats the problem and they dont know how to coach I know several ladies that played and graduated from there, that would make excellent coaches.
I for one, would love to see one or two former basketball players be coaches at SGHS. One is a coach in another district right now. There will never be another coach like Coach Larry Ricker, no matter how hard they try. You have to have girls that are dedicated to the game and not a bunch of prissy little girls that just want to be seen. I did not like some of Coach Larry Rickers methods of coaching but he got the job done. For the coaches now, quit trying to be like Coach Larry Ricker, because you will never be. Coach Chris will never be like his brother. You want a good coach, hire Whitney Tweed to coach, you might be surprised how things will turn around.
If the parents would let the coaches do their job, maybe things would be different. As for Cindy Bowman, She dont loose games, the basketball players loose games. any team that has one or two on the team who think they are better than the rest of the team need to sit on the bench for not playing as a team...I believe I would set coach Rickers daughter on the bench for a while, shes no better than any other on the team.
You people need to get off Topix and get in the stands and help support the team. Try to bring this team back together. seems to me the fans are a big part of the win...if you dont back your own players you loose as well, then you get on here and complain about Cindy and she is not the one on the floor loosing the game. You might think Im a parent of a player....WRONG...I did play ball there many many years ago. But my kids never went there. I have all the respect for the school. I have heard enough stuff negative about the school and their sports lately' that it makes me sick. Grow up...I was always taught that it takes 5 players on the floor and the rest of the team on the bench to make a team....
LEARN TO PLAY AS A TEAM, NOT AS INDIVIDUALS. ONE PERSON DOES NOT MAKE A TEAM. GO REBELS!
You tell'em sis I don't agree with all you say but the spirit certainly is in the right place. If they start interviewing for coaches I know Brandy Shelton (maiden name) beat Coach Gregg's mighty Nolachuckey team one night with only 5 players on the team. Now thats coaching. But I think the school made her quit coaching after that, probably a little too tough.
may be why

Addressed to Mad. . .When one takes time to read through this thread. . .your heading should have said I Hate Cindy Bowman. You truly do have an unhealthy hatred toward this woman. I am quite certain you read over your posts with pride. . .you being so much more learned in basketball and such. . .but I haven't read where you place any of the success...or lack thereof. . .to the coaches. Lessons from Coach Pearl are in order. . .his son sits... for the most part. . .on the bench. His own son. Your continued instruction for the parents, kids and Bowman to align behind the coaches and to . . .butt out. . .leaves much to the imagination as to what you mean. I believe parents picked up fairly early that one freshman. . .one. . .is getting all the chances. Parents saw. . .pretty early on. . .that this player was being positioned to take a senior's place. If Tweed had not kicked it in gear. . .parents knew who this spot was being vacated in favor of. I have ... unfortunately placed on this forum names which I should not. It would seem. . .that today. . .you are vacating even Mr. Ricker to take Mr. Gregg's place. . .thus your loyality seems true to no one. Mr. Ricker would have made a great coach. . .being more fair than his brother. . .hopefully. . .Mr. Gregg has messed that chance up for him. . .it seems.

This is my last post on Topix because I believe Topix is a bad habit. When uncertain, talk from the heart because the brain can play games with you. I have not felt this bad about a Lady Rebel team since the day Larry Ricker resigned as coach and that is real bad. I have blamed Cindy Bowman for a lot of SGHS's problems and I still think so but we need to get past that. I would suggest one thing in closing, this community needs something to bring it together and wash away the villains. Someone mentioned Coach Wallin and it didn't appear a whole lot of people knew about him or his teams, that is sad. I would suggest a Community Get Behind The Lady Rebels Open Practice in which 6 Lady Rebels will square off against 6 Lady Rebels, present players. I think Ms. Bowman probably knows the rules and could perhaps officiate this one game or at least give advice on how to play. The proceeds from admission could benefit the softball team or baseball team or tennis team or soccer team or the band, some of the lesser controversial sports. Cake walks, auctions and other fun things could precede and occur at halftime, sixties and seventies attire recommended but not required. The goal is to bring together before bridges are burnt and all is lost.

You have spent many hours stirring the pot and now you want peace? You are strange to say the least. Your recommending healing at the beginning of this thred and the other Gregg thread might could have done just that but after all the vile you and others have spread do you really think that is possible? You and others have pitted child against child and parent against parent and parent against coaches and so on and so on. The main reason these coaches are in trouble is because of the unfair tactics they have used. I have been to hundreds of ball games over the years and this year is by far the most unfair coaching me and my husband have ever seen. No player can get better without opportunity and that is where the coaches have messed up big time. These coaches will have to live with how they have been so unfair to a number of players. A few games are left. Fair coaching and equal opportunity. That is what the fans are looking for.

This is also the first year that me and my husband have felt so mad at the coaches. What are they doing to South Greene. We look forward to our girls and boys every year. Get it together or out the door you go.
just my opinion

I hope Bowman looks on this thread. Tonight was a disgusting display of favoritism for south Greene. While one can understand Ricker's dream of watching both his girls on the floor against CD, the fans can see what and know what I am talking about. Come up in the stands Coach if you want to know what we think. Yes you are the coach, this year, but you have failed miserably. This type of coaching goes way over the line. Can't you see the other girls on the bench? Don't you see their desire to be on that floor. Don't say they are not capable when so many mistakes are being made. How do you live with yourself when you KNOW you are not being fair to all the children. The Donahue kid, and no I am not her family, is just as capable as another player. Shipley is being ignored and what about Javan you have thrown her all over the place. Maci comes and goes. What the HELL are you doing to these children? Destroying their confidence?

And what's wrong with North Greene beating them? They also beat Chuckey Doak. They have their act together down there. Maybe THE REAL HEAD COACH should get those tapes and watch them over and over.

Bowman has heard from parents and I just hope she will listen to the people whose children will have to play next year. Gregg is not right for south greene and not sure Ricker is either. What ever you do any of the old 6 or 7 former lady rebels should not even be considered.
need a fair coach

P. Bowman if you staqnd behind theswe coaches next year, the parents, fans and children will not stand behind up. Not the most of them. You know that so please find the righrt staff for SG, please.

You need to shut it! I understand free speech and your right to your opinion but how dare you put that trash on here about someone who is no longer here to defend himself (as if he would to you or even need to). You are a classless jerk and a coward. I was around him my entire life and I assure you he was not any of your sorry description. Put your name on here COWARD and we'll critique you. You are a sad excuse for a human being!

It's all about winning Q SG ..that's the larry neal theory...the parents dont give a damn as long as they get the W...win win win win .....they think they are never suppose to lose. That's why I hate lady rebel basketball....The way people act as if it's theo only team that exist. And there again..all the parents and outsiders trying to get in think they can run the show.
If this hurts you to read it I Dont care...It's the truth, put it in your pipe and smoke it.
