Upike what a joke this place is, They have the Doctor school but yet you see no good doctors in pike county, I read the paper the other day and saw where doctors are getting in trouble for selling samples to their patients, how sick that is.

Plus why don't they help our own people here more, They seem to want to give all the free money to outsiders, What is wrong with you people, We have so many good players right here at home, But you go looking somewhere else, You are a joke to the people of pike county kids.

Your school is hurting the people here right at home.

SO SAD THAT YOU DON'T CARE FOR OUR OWN KIDS.

They have players from this area. Do you think you can put together a team of all local players and beat UPike? I gotta hear this, do you think you can?

Not today but i will guarantee that a few good ole boys back in the later 70's could for sure go there and have their way with them. A few from Virgie, one or two from Millard, one from Dorton would spank them with their head low due to a defeat.

also one from Phelps, Some Campbell guy(joking about that) as he tried to play then tried to coach. He had the same results at both(failed) could send them back to the locker room hanging their head
Take the Millard and Virgie players at that time and put them together and watch the Bears get spanked.

Laughing, What a Hell hole you are, First our kids could beat anybody if they EVER got the chance, But Upike wants to go get outsiders down south to take our kids free money. That is wrong, You most likely are not from here, So i bet you just love it, Well the people of pike county are getting sick of it. If this shit of a school can't do any better then move DOWN SOUTH AND TAKE YOUR TEAM WITH YOU.

First of all, the year now is 2012-13, not 1981-82, which is the years you most likely ment to say with the places of the players I think you was referring to.

Alice Lloyd recruits only local players, Pikeville spanks them by at least 50 without even trying. Plus, there are local kids on UPikes team, so know what you all are talking about before you start talking.

So True, I know we could, Why do they want to always go elsewhere? This is crazy we have so more to offer here, Plus we around here don't give a shit if they win or not, We want to see LOCAL KIDS PLAYING whether they WIN or NOT.

Again, ALC only recruits local players, look at the scoreboard after they play UPike. UP will win by 50+ points. If a player is good enough, they can play for UPike. College basketball is not just a sport, it is also a fundraiser and a job. Even though schools give out scholarships to players, they most of the time make their money back plus some from the proram itself. YOu only do that by winning. No one comes to watch losers play. All you people talking about local kids can beat out of area kids, put your money where your mouth is. Lets say bets when UPike playes ALC, UVA at wise, and any other close local school you can think of. Will you put your money where your mouth is?

I agree. keep the locals close to home at U-Pike. These mountains have been loaded with talent for years, and the local college just lets the good one slip right through. Keep our kids local, maybe attendance would even pick up

Hard to argue with a couple sad Parents who just little Junior to stay at home. If Junior would spend a little time in the Gym maybe he could earn a spot on their Team, but to just give it to him even though he can't even dribble down the Court is ridiculous. This is testament to what is wrong with this Country, and definitely what is wrong with this part of the Country. Want it given it to them whether they deserve it or not. The people whining are probably the same ones who didn't speak out for UPike when when they tried to become a state University. Tuition would have dropped and a lot more local children would have been able to attend. Schools like UK fought it tooth and nail. Back to Junior and his free ride. The Boys they recruited have devoted their lives to playing BB, and probably spend every minute they can practicing, instead of out running around getting in to trouble. You could get the best this area has ever had to offer, and even go back fifty years, and still not stand a chance against UPike. Probably get beat by a hundred points or more. You can't just throw a few people together and expect them to play as a team. Furthermore, if a single one had been any count they would have played beyond high School. The only one I can remember is Todd May. How long did he last? The comment that this area has so much to offer is beyond silly.
