<quoted text>Well Central played the same too weak teams so evidently I'm not missing the point. Well Districts will show because I think they all play in the DIstricts.
What he is trying to tell you Golden if you would just listen is there is a huge difference in the competition in the 2 schedules. Central plays "every" Lexington team except Dunbar(the weakest). The only team they both have in common is Henry Clay who already beat Southern. Henry Clay is probably one of the weakest teams on Central's schedule while it's probably the toughest team on Southern's schedule. Switch their schedules and Central has about the same amount of wins that Southern does. Cant wait till the district matchup !

I don't think Golden follows High School basketball or he would stop making his self look foolish. I truly don't think he knows the difference between GRC or Mason Co and Model or Jackson Co. A 15 point loss to GRC this year will earn you more respect than a 15 point win over Jackson Co !

The only thing I see this year is that the team is starving for talent. Feldhaus is a good coach, but his people skills are lacking. They have had 6 players walk off the team in the last couple of months and the only thing that the coach said to these kid's was, are you sure that's what you want to do? If I were a coach and I had picked these kids for my team; why would I let them walk? In my opinion, he could have done more. He should have talked the kids through this and found out why they wanted to leave. Then he should have inspired them, which is not just his job, but also HIS responsibility!
These kids need a mentor to look up to and Feldhaus has failed to be that mentor. If you don't think a kid has the talent to play for you, don't pick him during tryouts and waste his time. Let him go on to do something more productive in life besides being just a practice body. All six of these boys had talent and had played basketball for many,many years. They didn't play for the fun of it, they were playing because their heart's were in it! Now you have six boys out on the street that should be on the court and your season will only get worse. Mr. Feldhaus, we know you have to have it your way and you take offense when parents question why their kid isn't playing, and that you punish the kid for the parents mistake of asking. It is only human nature for a parent to care about their child when their child is bummed about his playing time. So when a parent is getting worried about their son being down all the time, a parent will do what a parent will always do, and ask the coach why their son isn't getting any playing time. Then when the coach becomes offended by the parent asking him about their kids playing time and takes it out on the kid, the coach becomes the kid for lowering himself to be vendictive. In my opinion, your actions or the actions you failed to do by not asking these six young men to stay on your team, will only hurt you and your team in the future.
Be a man; Allen, and get these boys together and ask them why they quit THE team. Maybe you will be enlightened and learn something important about yourself that will help you in your future years of coaching. There is only one GOD, in this universe, and it isn't Allen Feldhaus!

If you or your kid can't take cussing or being yelled at, he doesn't need to be playing sports. Maybe join the band, play hop-scotch, or maybe the math club. There is definately nothing wrong with the coaching at Madison Central, there is simply not enough talent this year.
While i agree with most of what you said I would just like to point out the band comment saying the marching band placed second place this year in the state and spend hundreds of hours in the 90 degree heat with the band director screaming and in fact cussing at them.

I don't think any of the coaches at central should be fired for having a bad season. The students are the ones who are not putting in the effort it takes. when the basketball team made the sweet sixteen the madison county schools stopped everyone was concertrating on that, now people want to fire the same coach who made that happen.

Coaches at Central have to use the players in the system. There is no recruiting. I don't think Turner should've been let go but as said before you can't release one coach for a losing season and not the other.

Allen Feldhaus is a good coach. He really knows basketball. 2 state tournament appearances in one of the toughest regions in the state speaks volumes about his ability as a coach. But as some of you have said he's lacking in people skills. My son played for Feldhaus. He was a decent enough player. He played hard and practiced hard. Got plenty of playing time. So before everyone piles on about sour grapes over playing time, he saw plenty of time. My son became very sick when he was 16 and was hospitalized for 7 days during basketball season. He had something wrong with him that kills 25% of the people it afflicts. He lost about 20 pounds in the hospital. When he got out of the hospital he went back to practice after a few days. This was my fault for rushing him back. But I thought it would be good for him to get back on his feet as quick as possible. When he got back I guess Allen was a little hard on him. Mostly verbally. He told him he was slow and had lost a step and basically couldn't play anymore. He toughed out the rest of the season and the JV won the region that year if I remember right. But Here's the thing that really made me see what kind of people Allen Feldhaus and Kenny Roberts are. Not one time during the 7 days in the hospital did either one of them come by and see my son. His golf coach Drew Alexander came by 2 or 3 times. Drew is a great human being and I thank him for his time. If this gets read by Allen or Kenny they will know who it is. I've held this in all these years and now you know how I feel. Not that you care. So to answer the question should Feldhaus be fired? No he should not be fired for 1 bad season. Central plays tough in the 11th region year after year. And if Allen gets fired you may lose the best coach at central, Karen Feldhaus. If you want a coach fired start with the baseball coach. Now I can't say there's not sour grapes there. But thats a different story.

Fair weather fans need to sit down and stop typing smack on your computers. Leave it alone. Feldhaus knows more and does more for players than any of you will EVER KNOW. If you were real fans or knew him at all you would know this. It just goes to show how little most of you really know.

Yes. it's a bad record, but not winless. If you'd been following the whole post you would see that this conversation started with someone stating since Turner was fired for a winless season Feldhaus should be as well.... but 8 wins is bad, but NOT Winless.

We all know who you are with this post and 75% of Madison Central can say your son just dont have what it takes to get lot of playing time, he needs to stick with being in the choir at what he does best. Basketball wasnt something that he really wanted to suceed with anyways considering that football was his first choice. All 6 boys quit because as parents you have failed them to become what they are LOSERS. I can recall one of the kids going to play at a different school because basketball was in his heart and nothing was going to stop him. You on the other hand say its in your childs heart but continue to let him quit because thats what he wanted to do only because you were pushing him to play... basketball was never in his heart...football is...leave the coach alone
