Happys recruiting

United States

#1 Nov 30, 2012
I had heard Happy had recruited players in and MCHS had stooped to the level of cheating. Wow is all I can say. Everyone who think they are someone kids play varsity and JV . I'm guessing the parents are the check writers to Happy. Who is paying for the rent of jones who lived by himself. I heard Richard Fuller and the Walkers were footing most of the bill. Is this true? MC wants to their best player to go to the state tournament so they hire Happy Osborne who has always been perceived as being on the Shady side. He in return recruits his players and he tells. T hem he will get them a college scholarship. Montgomery County you're school system has gone to hell! is a trip to the state tournament worth getting called cheaters from other schools? You can blame Phil Rison who orchestrated this lousy cheating scandal. It's going to blow up in their faces pretty soon. I bet Richard fuller will be glad when it does because he said happy was breaking him and his other banking buddy. It's coming people waitt and see! Phil Rison needs to go as soon as possible. He needs to be ran out of town along with his purv brother. These people make MCHS basketball as the joke of the 10th region. He even lets one hall boy play when hollby hall should get his minutes. Lets wait and see what happens. I promise happy is here for 1 year and that is to get Pruitt to the state tournament. Wait and see what happens. Not going to happen this year,

If you feel that unethical recruiting is taking place then this is what you need to do, contact the KHSAA and file a formal complaint. The complaint cannot be anonymous. If it is then the school system only has to respond. If you give them your name and the facts you know then the KHSAA must investigate the transfers. Nothing is accomplished if all you do is complain on topix.

Happy has always been perceived as a cheater. Phil Rison is buddies with Julian Tackett and it will be covered up. I wondered myself how the kid from Las Vegas ended up in Mount Sterling, KY. I figured if Phil Rison had anything to do with it it would be shady. You are right about Rison not getting a superintendent job is true. No one wants a crook. He will never get the job here. The way I look at it, I don't think cheaters win and karma will bite you. Happy will be here one year and he will go back to a small college job where he can recruit all the div 1 flunkies that can't pass at major colleges. That's all he has ever done. By the way, what's up with all the coaches? Does he really need 15 assistants. Enjoy this year Indians fans because you will never have a mother like it.

I was told that Phil Rison is going to be ran out of town. Be patient his time is coming. MC is tired of the shady people. Those kids deserve so much better. It's not about all the wealthy kids getting to play, it's about everyone getting a chance if they are good enough to play. I hope the new board members will take the trash out.

Anyone who has went to see a game can see what is going on. It is as plain as day. Everyone should boycott the games and not pay to watch them cheat. We should band together as a community and file complaints. It is sad that high school sports has come to this. High school sports are about playing for the school and community that you love win or lose. You definitely do reap what you sow. I feel badly for those who feel the need to stab a child in the back for their own personal gain.

I'm not sure how the new kids got here but I will find out. I didn't know that they were recruited here only to play basketball. I think it's fair to ask how they got here and who paid for their transportation. Who is paying for the kids rent if his parents live in Vegas. I have heard some very bad rumors about the basketball team under happy. If I find out a single one is true I will never step foot in the arena again. To have a reputation as being a cheater is very sad. I'm afraid this is where it's going. The new board members need to look into this.

The people behind this is Phil Rison , Josh Powell, Pruitt family, along with little man fuller and the walker company and a few others. The people who work for the school system needs to be fired right away. MCHS is the talk of the state. Little man fuller high fives happy before a game and then slipped him a check the next game. MCHS is full of corruption and most parents know it but are afraid to speak out.

I do not know the ins and outs of this discussion, but i see it a little different.....The kids that have not played for the last 2 years are now playing and playing well....To me this is about the development of ALL players reguardless their financial situation.....Not one kid has fallen through the cracks since Happy has taken over....I see confidence...i see team work....i see the future for the Montgomery County program with or without Happy....I also did not agree with kids comming from other schools....but they are class acts and deserve being treated with the same....Just fun to watch, come see for yourself!!! Its just a game....For the kids!!

If those kids were recruited it is wrong period. It's nothing against the kids at all. The people that did this is who needs to pay not the kids. I don't know of a kid out there that fell through the cracks. I think there is a couple that is playing that wouldn't play on another team. Happy is putting Juniors on JV which is wrong also. JV should be for Sophomores and Freshmen. MC has some talent but not enough to take them to State Tournament. You have a 6.10 Freshman who can hardly run down the floor and a 5.4 point guard. The Tomlin kid is the best player on the floor. If you have to cheat to win the Region I would just as soon lose every year.

One more thing. Who has MC played? Menifee and Nicholas county who are dead awful. We will judge them when they play some competition. I can tell you right now that Mason county will more than likely give them a good beating along with several other schools. This goes for Varsity also. They are going to lose some games because they play some stiff competition. Bottom line is happy has cheated the system and MC will pay for it sooner rather than later.

I don't care if we have to cheat to win. We are going to destroy Clark County this year and go to the state tournament. Lets bring a 6.8 stud in so we will have a good big man. Get to work Happy.

Has anyone contacted KHSAA? Or the paper? Or the local news? Sounds like a very corrupt operation here. Is it true Happy doesn't ride the bus? It is sad because we are not a private school and we are acting like one by recruiting.

Those are good kids out there playing. Happy Osborne is a very good Coach and these kids will learn a great deal from him. I agree some things has gone on that probably shouldn't have but don't hold that against the kids. I think it's an honor for my son to get to practice under a man who has won an NAIA Title. Happy knows his basketball. What's important is that the kids learn as much as they can while he is here. I don't expect him to be here forever because he won't be. That's the nature of the business. I wish my son got to play more but that's not for me to decide. I agree with some of the things said but a lot of things are just rumors. I am going to be cheering for the Indians all the way to Rupp Arena.

Fact of the matter is we are not a private school or Scott County. I feel for the boys on the team that is overlooked for out of county players. If we do somehow win the 10th Region and go to the state it is like Barry Bonds, Sammy Sosa, and Roger Clemens going into the Hall of Fame. For some of the fans, they will pretend nothing has happened and will cherish it. I speak for most of the community when we know it has been tainted.

What are they teaching the team? If you can't achieve it on your own we will bring in some that can. It's ok to cheat the system for a victory? No it's not ok. In the end the victory of winning is tainted. I am sure that those boys are class acts and it is not their fault, but it is the school systems and the parents. How many transfers has Montgomery County had in the past of this nature? None that I can remember. Lets see how much time each one gets when they play a good team. There is a game being played here and it is not basketball and the only losers here are your children and your too stupid to stand up for what is right.

Honey Blame the parents also. They are the one's who got their last coach fired because he cursed. Happy has the dirtiest mouth I have ever heard. He don't care what anyone thinks of him. He will still come and shake you're hand just showing you how two faced he is. I know a sr on the team and he said he has never seen a coach that lies as much as Happy. Happy has no morals what so ever. He promised a regional title this year and he will jump ship next year. Wait and see! MC has the top recruiting class in the state. He even got Keith peirsaw nephew to transfer com Owensboro catholic and promised him playing time. He 's not very good but he will play. I can't believe the KHSAA let's this go on.

I went to the game last night and it was like looking at a totally different team. Their defense was great, they played as a team, not 1 kid was a ball hog, not 1 kid racked up all the points and a lot of the bench got a chance to play. It wasn't just "Happy's recruits" as some say playing. Clark county had people there watching, when has Clark ever worried about what kind of team Moco has ever had? Happy is awesome, he is a great coach, a pusher of academics & he wants our children to have a future. The "one" that everyone says lives by himself is not true, that child has family here that he lives with. I met his Uncle last night, so stop spreading rumors come to a game & ask to meet him. He will be happy to come over & shake your hand. In the past years their have been parents from here that drove their kids to another school, cause of our lack of "coaching" for a better chance its no different. Until these rumors become facts stop spreading them instead reach in your pocket pay the $5 & come support our team. Their schedule is great this year Lexington teams, lots of tournaments & a big steps above the little school we always played just to boost are record.

The KHSAA don't care! Julian Tackett and Phil Rison are big buddies. Don't waste your time.
