Hart does not lay in bars and make a fool of himself. He works very hard for his players, and raises his family in a town that does not care about basketball. He probably should quit at Linton and just help his wife's cousin at Bloomfield. Go Cardinals!

How can you say he doesn't lay in bars when he was doing it DURING THE SEASON?
But I agree, he should quit Linton. But he should never go near a school again.

People are exaggerating on this guy like they do most coaches. The guy used to be a great coach, but he has mellowed too much for me. I would not be surprised if he quit. He does not look to me like he likes coaching anymore.

What makes u think this group is so good cause they
were bigger than everyone in Jr high and never developed any bball skills or it because they beat all these little schools at by 80 points a game.

He actually does have a winning record at Linton, and he has won everywhere else. But something is not quite right here. It may not be coaching at all, or it may be a case where they are just still building a program.

Hart is one of the best coaches in the state. He is one of the most prepared and knowledgeable basketball minds around. The other coaches in the area respect him very much.

And you know this how? Who else saw him "laying in a bar"? I would like to call them liars too. I have never seen him out and I know he won't go out for fear of public perception. I also go to the bowling alley frequently and have never seen him in there. The past is the past. Did he make mistakes, yes. He is a better person because of it too. But he has moved on and I think some of you should too. He is doing good at his job. He will build a succesful program, it will just take a season or 2 for a breakout. They "ALL" have to buy in to his philosophy.

heard some lintonians around the water cooler today say linton is the team to beat in the Swiac and sectional this year. let the humor begin!For starters your coach is ok but makes excuses a lot. No wonder there big kid acts out on the court. he's coached for a long time has he won a sectional yet? Is he above .500 as a coach for his career? Shakamak, Turkey Run, Linton are all small schools who play other small school. In lintons case they pretty much play schools smaller than them all year. Last year they were supposed to be a force also, at least that's what the water cooler experts thought. One of my buddies hunts with a big miner fan (not a hart fan though). He said at Joeys previous schools they always struggled the 1st year but made huge turnaround in year 2. HAHA looks like that was another Hart myth. did they even beat 1 of the 4 other schools in little ole Greene Co? What was their record in the SWIAC? those other schools dont play football (except Eastern & it didnt seem to slow them down). Yeah I know the officials homered you on the road. I bet JB Neill laughs everytime he hears Linton will win the SWIAC. Hart has what were supposed to be WRV's 2 best players,and WRV still beat them. I ask all of you Linton fans this; what other coach in GC is Hart better than? Hes done less with more than any other coach around yet so many think he's great. keep thinking that and the rest of us will keep putting the "L" in Linton for you. Oh and isnt Sullivan in your sectional? Sullivan's JV looked better than your varsity this past season.

Im sure you linton fans will find this in Novemeber, after football season. Ill do some research between now and then. maybe im wrong maybe hart won a sectional at chicken walk. he's still pooped his pants at linton so far though

I think the miners will be very good this year the two studs looked great during summer ball if they get decent guard play the SWAIC is a walk in the park.Watch out for number 24 for the Eels Cesinger will put up big numbers but the Eels will not be near as good as last year.I honestly think that Linton could beat any Terre Haute team and play even with Rockville on a good night and I don't see them having any problem with Sullivan the Miners are just to big if they don't get in foul trouble

Free crowe for all the haters!!

Linton AD did an awesome job getting a coach (and entire staff) from... wait for it... every EXCEPT Linton.

MinerBlow / Miner Fan... how does that crow taste? 10 games?!? bahaha... How about 24 wins! And the Miner bucket. And the Greene County keg. And the Greene County Invitational trophy. And the outright SWIAC title. And the Sectional championship. And the Regional title. And don't forget about the semi-state crown! And one impressive performance on the big stage vs. a lineup comparable to IUPUI!

In Joey's 3 years, the team has won 47 games. The 3 years prior to his arrival, they won 14 games. And he has built a feeder system that will make Linton basketball competitive each year. I can assure you that area teams no longer look at Linton as a "gimmie" or "easy W" game. Since the mid-80's, save for a season or two, that is exactly where Linton basketball was.

Laughing,

If you knew anything about athletic programs, you would know it takes more than 1 year to turn a program around. Maybe you need new friends because someone lied to you. In fact, what Hart did with this team in terms of work ethic, fundamentals and chemistry in just his 3 year is astounding. Regardless of talent, it takes a coach a lot of time and effort to build a team, and Hart went above and beyond any expectations that could have been bestowed upon this program.

And you asked what coaches was Hart better than in SWIAC? I would rather list those better than him, because I have them listed here:

...and that concludes the list. Who is laughing now?!?
