First of all I think this team should be allowed to use the breathitt coliseum. But a couple things bother me about it. For the most part the students and adults that are making their opinion known that they think they should be able to play rarely come to the breathitt county boys basketball team games. They show no support for their own high school basketball team. Second of all, at the recent WYMT mountain classic every other school was represented by a strong student section except for breathitt. Now how do u think that made the players feel and how that appeared to the other schools and the viewers on tv? I know some of you will say something negative about the basketball team and how they played but does that mean you shouldn't support the team? So for those of u that have taken this so seriously about supporting this 22ft academy team why not try to support your own high school team as well. And, I know some of the adults that have been very vocal about wanting the team to play at the coliseum but if their child was still playin for breathitt high school they would pitching a fit. Sometimes when u no longer have a dog n it people tend to jump on the bandwagon one that they never would have if their circumstances were different. My opinion is they should be able to play in the coliseum but support the high school team as well. I'm sure the basketball team would appreciate the support
Well

No reason why all can't benefit From 22ft being here. Must put aside jealousy though If its to work. Can't compare teams. Prep teams are WAY better. No comparison at all. Fans can support both teams just as they do girls team and boys team. Prep teams are gaining popularity over all the country. It's a reality sooner or later.
Not the point

Placing the blame on the state is a smokescreen tactic.

One that should not be tolerated.
I sorry but

I don't see the state mentioned in any of the post. Did I miss something? Someone asked a question. The decision maker was on the front page of the paper 3 or 4 weeks ago and evidently did not read the board policy.

I say take care of our kids. If were going to open up the gym lets let communities form basketball teams and I bet people will come watch them play. I'm like the other poster on here...why did they chose Jackson all of a sudden? It didn't take them no time to locate here.

They picked Jackson because of the Coliseum. Maybe they should instead go to Leslie Co or PCC and use their gyms. Breathitt County's loss.
Good bye

People coming to town to watch these future college players play. Spending money in restaurants and buying gas and anything else they spend money for while in town.
