Hey, I agree with "guard". It seems like all people want to do is criticize instead of finding out any of the facts. Mel has helped a lot of people in this town. Mel has every right to place his hand over his heart during the plege or not! That's what makes this country great - anyone has the right to to stand up for what they believes in.

I can't intelligently comment on Mel's school board or Hamilton Center performance, but as a former South footbal player, I can speak to his coaching. First of all, the guy is a dick. There is a difference between tough coaching and being a dick, and he definitely fell on the far side of that line, pretty much every day. He also really is a terrible coach. His methods and strategies were extremely outdated and ineffective. I also noticed that he did tend to favor some of the black players but I never really felt like it was racism, as he was still a dick to the black guys that weren't his facorites.
So while "Coach Satan" (as we called him) may in fact be good at his day job, I wouldn't vote for him as dog cathcer and I sincerely hope that I never have occasion to speak with him again.
PS. I am not religious, not political and not racist, so none of these things fueled this post. I just think the guy is really hateful and unpleasant and I don't wish success for any person like that!

I now live in Indy & can tell u 1st hand that Mel Burks is a racist & the worst coach I ever had in football or any other sport I have played. He is a control freak who must not have a happy home cause he is never home. School board, coach football, coach basketball if that is what u call it, & hamilton Center where he needs 2 actually get help instead of working there. If u add up all of Burks victories & losses he probaby has 65 victories & over 400 losses, I sh#t u not. He is a loser A racist & he will be beat the next time he runs 4 school board!!!

Smell Burks needs to be beat in the next school board race. Come Vigo County can't you find someone who is more qualified than a egotistical maniac in Smell Burks??? Really Vigo County, he is the best we have to offer. The guy cannot even speak, ya just can't undestand him. ILLITERATE!!!!

When my son played for him on the Junior Varsity he treated him awful. He has one set of rules for his black players & one for the white players. He would never yell at a black player when he made a mistake but boy ole boy he would scream at the white player.
That absolutely false he yells more at the blacks the. He does whites and this is coming from a player on his team right now. He is a horrible coach and has no idea what he is Doing but one thing he doesnt do is yell at the whites more. He prolly just yelled at Ike cus he was a joke. Don't get me wrong I'm not taking burks side but he has favs and none of them are black except Anthony McGill. Fuck burks and saylor they are both idiots
