Did you know Bimbo Coles is going to be asst. coach for boys at East? He is a great guy, very nice, and I think he will do a great job.

This is like the crap on the (Hosey/Childers Sheriff's Race) who cares what Bimbo's wife did or didn't do... This is about Basketball... And hoping the kids of the Greenbrier Valley realize that the only one they are hurting by not playing for this coach or that coach is themselves...There is a lot of talent that is not being seen at the high school level around here... Scholarship's being lost

Is Kari B. the tall skinny black haired person? She seems like a huge snob. As for Bimbo's wife, she too, is a extremely nice person and I can't imagine her fighting anyone.

From what I heard, Bimbo did everything he could to get Kari, and she blew him off. Maybe you fat gals oughta get to know her.

Jerry Bradley is the reason you have the "talent" you've seen in the past. A lot of the boys refuse to play for him because he is a jerk! He does not know talent; there is more talent in the rec league. Yes, Bimbo (who knows a thing or two about basketball, football and baseball) would bring out a lot of kids, so they'd better be prepared to work hard.

I think that Bimbo Coles is nothing but an embarrasment to this community. He has everything that anyone could ever wish for, yet he goes around hitting on women all the time. His wife is NOT nice. She is basically blaming twenty years of infidelity on other women. If she seems nice now, it's simply because she owns a business (politics). She chose her life, and I don't feel sorry for her. I think that she is an ignorant woman. God forbid her daughters to grow up thinking that this is how a wife is supposed to be treated. Shame on you Bimbo, and shame on you Wes.

I as far as all the talented boys in rec. league there is a big difference between Greenbrier County rec. league and real basketball. Also you have to want to work. The boys have worked all summer and fall the rec. league guys want to show and play not work involved. As far as the jerk comment you are way out of line.

A snob? Ya'll must not know Kari. She's anything but a snob. Let's keep the focus on basketball. I think that it is a good thing that Bimbo is doing this. The kids like him.
I do not think so

I don't think I was out of line at all. You are correct, there is a BIG difference between Greenbrier County Rec League and "real basketball". The kids in the rec league don't have as much practice, but could run the "real basketball" players off the court! There are, maybe, three players that are good players on East's team (which shouldn't even be picked yet, btw.) One that is GREAT, but he can't do it all by himself. He needs 4 others to help him out.

In my opinion i believe you were also out of line. And As a parent of a player I know for a fact the the team is not picked beorehand. My son works his ass off all summer so he can make sure he makes the team again. Coach Bradley stresses to them all the time that they are never a shoe in for the team. I have been there when he has said this. East's team is definitely looking forward to a great season. With MANY GREAT returning players!

And also I believe that the East boys can not be run of the floor by a rec. league team!!

Who are these great rec. league players?
Played a little B-ball

I would agree that there are a couple of guys that played Rec. League last year that could make the East team... Josh Norman comes to mind along with the Accasio(sp.) kid who I thought has the ability to play... The reality here is that our "great players" are only mediocore compared to other high school programs... The record over the past 5 years proves that out... Most of those wins coming over A and AA schools... You have one of the largest AAA schools in the state yet unable to compete at the AAA level... like Obama says: "it's time for a change"... let's hope Bimbo can bring that... nothing against J-Bradley but some times you have to adapt your style to the type of players you have... not the other way around...

First: East is not one of the biggest schools in the state. East is a medium sized AAA high school in WV.

Second: Those rec league players have to carry a 2.0 in order to play high school ball. I know many blame coaches and whatever for not playing but quite a few simply do not have the grades!

Let's hope that the kids have a good season and that they have the support of the community and parents!

As for anyone whose talking about rec league. apparently none of you go to the games. there are so many talented boys AND girls that play rec league. alot of them go out for the team to HAVE FUN, apparently not found on the high school team.. and because they don't like the high school coaches!!

Embarrassment? Thats ridiculous. He has done nothing but try to help this town and our youth. He helped his sister open a salon, he has volunteered his time with youth sports, both soccer and softball, he is trying to get a rec league built, now he is going to try and help our high school basketball team get on track. What do you people in Lewisburg expect??? We need more people like Bimbo in this community and for you guys to bash him is ludicrous.
As for Wesley, I've known her for over a year now, talked on many occasions, and I didn't know that she owned a business, so apparently, she's not playing politics otherwise she would be promoting herself...correct?
And if its true that Bimbo tried to get Kari, he should be thankful that she blew him off because Wesley is much hotter and much nicer than her.
And one last note, all the kids are great kids, and they should be left out of this. Their doing a fantastic job raising them.
