Totally agree!!

<quoted text>I will agree with you it may not be the coach's fault re: commitment & laziness, however that kid should not be playing (or possibly not be on the team). A kid has to have the inner will to want to excel & do well. If that kid does not & is lazy & lacks commitment, his or her attitude will rub off on their teammates thus causing major problems for the team. I'd rather have a less naturally talented kid who works their butt off than a talented lazy kid who doesn't give it 100%. A lazy, non-committed talented kid will eventually be a cancer to the team. Attitude is everything. jmo.

0-7 great start , how much can the fans take. I hope the A.D. Has eye for new coach these two guys are joke. Not trying to be mean just honest. I hope we look farther than their teachers for a coach? Where's the old coach may be if you beg him he will come back.

And as bad as they are, they probably wont win a game, and with the team he inherited from the previous coach, he can't be expected to win a game this year. I will agree the JV coach is an absolute moron. This was the biggest mistake the new head coach made,was picking this guy. And no we don't want to beg the old coach to come back.

I don't know much about Pat but I can say that I took my team to a shooting class that the varsity coach put on and I think Pat is moving in the right direction. You have to understand things aren't going to totally flip around in a year or two. When girls get to the high school level they shouldn't be doing the basic stuff that these girls should already know. Half of the girls that are on the varsity team shoot differently every time the ball goes to the hoop. So what do they have to work on is shooting drills at varsity level? They should of had this instilled into them since 3rd grade. Instead of teaching them plays and zone defenses they work on basics.you can a credit that to the horrible coaches in the past. He is trying to get these basics taught to the young girls we are coaching so they can work on what they need to like plays and defense once they do get to high school. Give him a break and a little time. If they can keep that horrible football coach you guys can at least give pat some time to get things turned around.

Agree - Not too familiar w/ girls BB program, however do we have any kind of feeder system or girls teams in the lower grades? Need to start them young if they are interested in BB. Agree re: UCHS varsity FB coach. Looks like the only way we'll get rid of him is if Purdue offers him their vacant head coaching position. Our AD & school board don't appear to care that high school FB program is in the crapper.

Bad news UCHS football fans - Purdue just hired Kent State's coach. Guess we're stuck w/ our coach until another opportunity arises. Thank God he's a fantastic Ass't principal??

Hey PITIFUL, I got an idea. Since the football coach is so terrible, I think you need to go to his office and explain your expertise and maybe you can become an assistant. Then you can pull that program out of the crapper.

0-8 , What are we going to do. If this coach is doing a lot with the younger girls, maybe that's where he should have started his coaching career. Lost to a team that was very beatable, last night . Hope all the girls don't give up,on the program.

Terrible these two guys are joke. Just watched the game tonight,5 in and 5 out is what you do in 3rd grade not high school. Let me give these two guy some advice keep your best 5 on floor and till someone needs a break and sub accordingly. Or when someone makes a mistake sub, and explain the problem. Just don't let continue. Because the girls only learn if you teach them. I know people say give him a chance, I see known improvement from the first game to now. Ten games in and still can not break the press. What do we work on in practice? Oh that's right we only practice two times in the last 10 days. This would have been valuable time to work on things to try to the second half of season around. Sorry I got to keep beating up these coaches but this is what happen when your A.D.hires someone with no experience. LET HERE IT !!

As a memer of the UCHS girls basketball team we DONT need new coaches . They're trying their hardest to improve the team since Mr. Gulley left . We're trying our hardest to improve and the teams not going to be undefeated when hes only been in the program since April. The team has improved trust me. & we don't need new coaches.

Maybe instead of blaming the coaches or the school politics we should focus on the people actually on the court. Everybody wants to blame the coach or w.e it is, but the true reason is that ur kids don't put in the work. Do they really deserve to win?

Tony Gulley is a nice enough person, I am not sure about his basketball coaching abilities, don't watch. But he is not a golf coach. He does nothing to help the kids learn and do better. He just sits in the club house and yaks. We have had some very talented kids in golf and where are they. The ones that have advanced did it on their own, not with any help from Tony. It is time for a new golf coach!
