Time to make a change for the boys basketball team. The guy played in the Black Diamond, coached in the Black Diamond, and now needs to be sent back to the Black Diamond.

There is no one on the school board who cares about sports,so the coach will be there as long as he wants.
no talent.

It's not his fault this years team has hardly any talent and they are so young.

Shows what you know. He never played in the black diamond. He was a fox before Hamco was in the BDC. He played when Hamco was a power equal to or greater than the Rangers. For the most part his teams over achieve based on their talent. You're just butt hurt that they got schooled in the BIT. Realistic expectations would go a long way for you. This isn't the 60's - 80's when Benton could lure talent with coal mining jobs.

He is a nice guy and I know our team is young but he is not a good basketball coach. I have seen all the games. Makes some poor choices at crucial times.

Problem is people don't have their facts straight. Winemiller knows how to coach and works his tail off. Currently they are young and have 2 starters out with injuries. People are never happy no matter the result and are always looking to get rid of the coach. In the last 15 years its been Don Smith, Matt Wynn, and now Ron Winemiller. Who is the last coach to be at Benton for 10 years or more?? I don't know the answer but my guess is RH. That says a lot in itself. Hell you guys are right. Fire him. Fire all the coaches at the school. I'm sure they could be replaced with coaches who are more knowledgeable, work harder, and hold kids to higher standards.

Well said fan! Ron did coach in the BDC briefly at zeigler royalton. I believe it was his first job. He came to Benton after being an assistant at Marshall county KY to Gus Gillespie I believe.

Anther loss for Benton last night and looks like we are headed for another one tonight. That will put us 1-6 in our last 7 games and the latest injury happened last night and the other one during the B.I.T. So when can we get out of the R. to R. and get in the B.D.C. so we can win some more games.

Even without injuries they won't win. Last night against Herrin they were lost. Its the coaches job to get them prepared. That is on the coach. Looked like they had no idea what to do. Didn't look they had any set plays.

Who could they get to replace him? Is there someone on staff who could take over?

[QUOTE who="no talent. "]It's not his fault this years team has hardly any talent and they are so young.[/QUOTE]
It is partially his fault the team is so young. He was telling juniors last year they wouldn't have a chance of playing last year or this year. He was already preparing to have his "young" team on the floor. I don't know if he was pressured or if it's just Benton ball as usual. Everyone who has been to BCHS knows it's not about the athletes or their abilities. It has always been about the families social economic status in the community. Have you not noticed the freshman (bank loan officer's son, friends of Ron's that help get him hired) is a starter on the Varsity squad (he is good, I'll give him that much). Or how a sophomore last year was starting varsity with his arm in a sling (oh wait that was Ron Heads grandson). Maybe if we did away with the politics of Benton Ball the whole community could be proud of what they have and start filling the gym again.
Just firing Coach Winemiller would not solve the issue. There has to be more done.

Coach Winemiller cares about his players more than anything, we've had times when we were the best in the south(beating Harrisburg and Massac back to back) and times where we couldn't beat an 8th grade team. It's not the coaches fault when players do not play consistently. Dry spells happen and it can only get better. If you are coming to games just too criticize and think you know everything please do everyone and yourself a favor and stay at home.

That's funny "large unit" when Dakota head isn't starting. And as a former Benton athlete I do know that I did not start varsity because of my parents because my parents did not like my coach. You people love to criticize others. Why not take a look in the mirror. Winemiller is a great guy no one will ever agree with every single decision a coach makes so instead of judging why don't you put yourself in his shoes.

He is a good guy but is not not a good coach. No one is questioning that.
