You are right, you are not a coach

Just posing a question here...I was at the ballgame friday night, now keep in mind I am not a coach, don't claim to have any expertise in that field at all, i am not trying to be monday morning qb either. However, I was wondering why we did not substitute more players in to give our boys a break during various stages of the ballgame are the other 30-40 kids so bad we cannot even put them in for a play or two to rest our starters some. They looked as if they were spent towards the end of the ballgame.
Another thing why did continue going for two after we scored. It failed at least twice. We could have kicked the tying point to send it into OT. Live to play another day I say.
I can understand what your getting at.First our kicking was hit or miss and a two point cinversion attempt the odds were in our favor but also MARION was an improved team that stood out.As for substitution well the coaches may have felt in this game experience is a plus and the backups may have been near enough ready yet.The seasons not over we have SIGNAL to play as they are winless and its a TV game so lets show up friday and cheer the warriors on..

Why are the coaches not running the same stuff they ran the past 3 years? I heard we lost a coach to Rhea county but is 1 coach really that much to loose? I hope the current coaches get this season turned around, we should kill Signal Mountain as they haven't won a single game this entire season, So mabey coach Reel will get this season turned around. Is Jim Swafford going to replace Reel next season or just when his son get's in High School, I was told that was the plan anyhow, but now that Cobb is out those plans may have changed, anyone heard anything about this?

Coach O was a huge loss! Dont kid yourself. Signal is very good team. They will be near impossible to stop Friday.

I love my brothers in blue. They need to find that fire and feed on it. They are still trying to find theirselves. I think with over half of them with little or no varsity experience, they were thinking they were the team we were last year and went in with the big head. Leave it all on the field this week in practice we are heading to the signal mtn illegals nest Friday. GO BIG BLUE!
P.S. Fans you have no idea how much your support matters from the stands when you are on the field.

A coach should not let a team get to the point where they dont have no experience. That is a coach's fault for not looking beyond the week in front of him. UT coach has ridden that sad song for a few years just to keep his job...blaming the players. Well he recruited them, he trained them, it is the coach's job to get them ready.

It's natural to be curious and wonder what's coming. Let's cut him some slack. We lost not only a good coach but also some awfully good players. Both games we played really well considering we've only played, we haven't done that badly. Less experience does make a difference, but they'll come along. Give everyone a chance before piling on.

NEYLAND said it best about passing three things can happen and two of them are bad interceptions and dropped passes.GILBERT is a good QUATERBACK but hes not as accurate as HOLLOWAY.Now most fans know there gonna be a falloff as a lot of talent are gone but if we beat signal friday we stand a good chance of another title..

True, I give you that. I hope we keep getting better, but we aren't going to if Reel keeps playing names instead of talent. I thought "daddy ball, or buddy ball" was left in little blue, but I guess not. It's a shame there's so much talent and little to no opportunity. If he wants to win, he needs to play the best!!-just saying...see you at the game Friday. Go Warriors!
