I agree with you the Upton girl is a good player but I don't see it in the other girls on the bench. Don't get me wrong they are good girls but to be able to play with some of these teams I don't think they can do any better than who is on the floor. Now the players will have a bad game just like you and i will have a bad day at work but to say they should be on the floor just because you as a parent thinks so, then it should be seen in practice also right.
To use your own words above you say "I don't think they can do any better than who is on the floor". Which means those on the bench need to be playing to. Practice is a whole can of worms by itself. The coaches should be reprimanded for allowing some of these smart azz players to harass and intimidate the other players. If the coach can't keep this junk in line then he needs to go home.

The O N L Y joke at South Greene is this coach. If you have a girl that loves the game you have no choice but to let her play for this stooge. Yes I said stooge. I will not apologize for saying what so many agree is true. Honestly where did the principal E V E R find this guy?
Give us A L L a break and go back to the drawing board and try again.

I have no ties whatsoever to South Greene. I am a basketball coach, however. I have coached against Coach Gregg before, though not in the last year or so.

The fans and parents want a South Greene team that will win games by huge margins and roll through the state. Those years are over. TSSAA rules and enforcement won't allow those type of dominant teams for South Greene anymore. If LNR in his prime were still here, it wouldn't be nearly as easy.

During those days, it was nothing for a player to decide where she was going to go to school and discuss it with the coaches of those schools. It was nothing to see coaches openly recruiting. Those days are over.

Greeneville is believed to recruit in certain sports. Other schools are believed to do the same. It is illegal. You get caught, you think get in trouble.

What I see is jealousy. I see nothing more, nothing less. Maybe he could go deeper into his bench, but for the most part, the ones out there are the ones who need to be out there.

lazy coaches make lazy players! he needs to get up of his little fat butt and work hard to make players WANT to come to SG to play. I am sick of hearing how those days are gone. Yeah there gone because of a lazy coach. And if you question if he needs to go deeper on the bench -- well you just are stupid to even question that. You might get lucky and get to state but you will Never win a championship without a deep bench. Coming in down the line may work for some of you but for the rest of us first is something we were use to for years!!!!!!!

If you get a coach that makes the girls work hard. Then you will have parents complaining about that. Done happened before and you got rid of the best coach you will ever have. I totally agree with you on the working hard part and the bench. Big games are usually won in the last two minutes. The more rest the players can get, the better your chance of winning in the end.

You don't get it. As I said, I am a coach. You get who you get. You can't just work to make players want to come to you. You get caught, you are probably going to lose your job as a coach. Some of these places can get by with it, but not all of us can. I imagine that with 5 schools within Greene County, that will be tough. The recruiting would have to be at the elementary level in getting the players to go to DeBusk and Nolachuckey primarily. Nothing can really be done to them. It seems GMS picks off kids from other schools because while they are in the association, it is limited what is going to be done to a middle school.

I don't agree that you have to have a deep bench to win a state championship. I have seen it happen before. It certainly helps. Girls especially need the deeper bench than in the boys, but you have to have the players there. I don't know that much about the ones on the bench, but I would guess he doesn't have the faith that they can handle it or they would be in there. Or maybe he feels his first 5 to 7 are that much better. Not all teams can be Science Hill and run a whole new 5 out there.

Have you asked to meet with him and see what your daughter can do to get better? Approaching a coach about playing time is a no-no, but you can always phrase things a bit better and get the same results.

Awe a no show. We can dream bout that. Maybe then we'd get a real coach. The better players are not getting the opportunity they need either.

There are at least 2 or 3 more Uptons sitting on his bench. The R girl should never have been put before the U girl. That is what is wrong with this coaching staff. They are stuck in the past. Just like the coaching staff has changed so should the coaching. You need to ignore names and get to playing the best players. Let their shoes on the floor B4 you get to their junior year and you just might have a state championship team on your hands. Otherwise, just stay stuck in the past with the same old names getting all the playing time. I could care less really.

I tend to agree my friend. When you have a kid with true tallent and the coach does not know how to recognize that tallent or worse yet what to do with it and how to help that tallent grow, that's a problem. There are always more than one and sometimes more than two on any senior team that has enough tallent to get a scholarship. With Gregg I don't see that happening. He has tunnel vision. Broaden your horizons man!!!

You all need to get over it! Coach Gregg is doing a good job!!! They are winning. They don't have the size to win State!!! He has them playing hard and they liked good at the Land Air Tournament! If he was undefeated you all would still Bitch! Just get over it!
