Jones could not coach a wet dream. He has no clue. Larry ricker is rolling in his grave if he saw what that school has become.

Really ? Have you watched a game ? They are not having fun. They are embarrassed and getting discouraged. This is hurting there chance to get a decent scholarship. Someone needs to step in about coaching. And yes I blame that no good piece shit principal. Softball coach 2 years ago had team signed up to play in all kinds of games and tournaments for practice and she said no..that's bullshit.

Why is it that when SG starts losing you have to hear their fans whine an complain. What about all the times you were winning? The shoes on the other foot for a change and you cannot stand it. You have rubbed the mighty SG in every other county schools faces for years. Well guess what, KARMA is a bitch, get some of it. Its way past due!!!

SGHS has won outstanding awards sooooooooooooo get over it. Yeah sports not so good. Jones and Gregg need to be replaced. But the school is doing as good as GHS in a lot of other areas. Remember it is about getting an education.

Dr. Cindy Bowman is a good principal. She has proved that more than once. Kids are just lazy and lack drive.

Lets be honest with ourselves and take a good look at this. For the lst 6 years the feeder schools for South Greene have been awful at best with the exception of last year at Debusk in football. Before that they were awful and no offense but was coached by a lady for a couple of years. Camp Creek was coached a few years by Bandy Thompson for gods sake and have used 5th graders to fill their team. The coach at Nolichucky throws the ball all the time and runs no resemblance of anything South Greene does. Glenwood has 14 players this year after not having a team for a couple of years.. Now to this years squad they have a few athletes the Waddell kid who unfortunately got hurt the Shufflers kid, Lightfoot is ok. Their line is slow and not very strong therefor can't hold blocks, their linebackers give good effort but are definitely undersized, their secondary is scared to hit anybody just to name a few. You mix this with some questionable coaching and it adds up to disaster. Game 1 they had 4 turnovers and lost, Game 2 they had 4 turnovers and also dropped right in the hands a touchdown with less than 3 minutes to go in game to win game, Game 3 they played without 1 of their 2 best players and once again turned it over. I am neither a fan or a critic of the coach but I am a realist. The truth is our feeder programs are lacking, we really don't have as many athletes like we used to and no Coach Jones isn't Coach Ricker. But in no way can you put all the blame on the coach,he hasn't missed a tackle or block, hasn't turned the ball over, dropped a pass. We're jut not very good were not very fast or very strong and for us to get better we have to change our feeder programs and we have to work a lot harder than we are in the weight room all year round.

<quoted text>First, if you are Truthspeaker then I am definitely your opposite. Coach Jones on numerous occasions has gotten penalties which have hurt his team, so he is part of the problem. In the last game he called a timeout with a minute and a half left in the 1st half and the team was on their own 20, 3rd down and 10 to go. That kind of decision making can hurt your team bad, fortunately this time it did not hurt the team. Late in the game he made the worst decision of all when he chose to go for it on 4th and 5 from around the 50 yard line, failed to pick it up, gave up field position and the opposing team scored the winning touchdown. Give me a break about feeder schools, the last team which beat them is using home schoolers to get to 16 athletes, they beat South Greene with 3 good athletes, 1, 4 and 11 and a QB who did not hurt his team. Their coaching was far superior. I will add 38 was a good kicker who hit a 48 yard field goal, but Jones again had an opportunity to send his kicker in to win the game at a much shorter distance and decided not to. He has two kickers, I would have at least given one of them a try. He is coach, of course he knows best.
Like I said no doubt part of the problem lies with coaching mistakes but to say its all his fault like you are trying to do in your whole post is mistaken. You obviously don't want to analyze the whole program or find that improvements need to be made in other places. Let me put it this way. Whoever in your opinion is the best coach around couldn't win 4 games out there this year. Now go ahead and continue to lay all the blame in one place and in 10 years after their is a new coach unless they are willing to make some changes for these players leading up to high school and in the offseason conditioning then you will see the same results. This is just my opinion I would love to see SG win every game.

It is always hard to tolerate how people like you just have to say something positive about the kids with the name stuff going on. Yulk and yulk! We could spend quite a bit of time talking about those you named above who have added greatly to our losses. The problem lies a lot within the fact that those named above and kids like them always get first dibs on playing. Look at your bench coach you have talent beyond these kids. That has always been a huge problem with south Greene. Playing the so called named kids of parents with names. Good enough when you lose. The man upstairs don't take kindly to treating the kids different just because of who they are NOT. Yeah we will all get to watch them same during basketball and baseball.

SGHS football will continue to suffer & decline as long as Jones is the head coach. He has the largest team in years & he can't pull out a win. He will only use a handful of players that he likes or likes the parents & ignore other players for whatever silly reason & he has absolutely no idea how to communicate or motivate a team. That's how he's done it since he took over & it hasn't changed. The assistant coaches he's had that knew what they were doing have all left or quit because they couldn't stand him & how he does the boys. It's not as much that he doesn't have any talent to chose from as the fact he doesn't know what to do with them or will give anyone but his chosen few a chance to prove themselves. I'd love to see SGs football program get back to where it used to be but Jones will not be the coach that gets them there. I don't understand why Ms Bowman will not get them a real football coach especially with so many complaints every year & losing students to other schools. And yes, she's tried to break down school spirit & Rebel Pride.

<quoted text>I am a realist, based on talent alone, South Greene should be 1 and 2 this year and looking at the possibility of being 7 and 3 and making the playoffs probably losing in the 1st round due to the strength of Knoxville area teams. That is the reality based on the deck you are dealt which is what you are trying to say, I understand what you are saying. I can accept that. However, bad coaching has got this team 0 and 3 at this point in the season and if bad coaching continues then you are looking at a team at best who is 4 and 6 and not in the playoffs. I accept your premise on talent but results from that talent could be much better with better coaching. The question for people in the South Greene area is 4 and 6 and sloppy, disgusting play acceptable or do you want 7 and 4 and a team showing the traditional Rebel Pride we all once knew existed at South Greene, the pride which could produce a win over GHS in a very good year, not the attitude which causes you to lose to homeschoolers.
unfortunately we don't see the same talent level. You have not once spoken of the feeder schools nor the off season workout program so what is your answer to those two problems as well. I just don't lay all the blame on the coach. SG should have won the CD game all we have to do is catch the ball. In the Central game all we have to do is not fumble the ball. Two basic parts of football and they are 2-1. They should beat NG, Hancock, Unaka and Cosby which would have been 6 wins.

As for LNR yes it was the SG people. You had some parents of lady rebel basketball players who didn't like his in your face coaching and hands on approach. They thought it was to rough and complained to Parkins who in turn got rid of him not Bowman. Those girls were born and raised south of the river and their the ones who forced the action. Once again the truth speaker has spoken.
