You must have hurried home to make that post carrots. I am always proud of the team every night, but exceptionally proud tonight. Great effort tonight from all the players. Continued effort like that will result in wins. Scoreboard aside, they were winners tonight because of how hard they played.

Well well well. Almost everyone blame KT for our losses the last 2 years. They all yelled fire KT we want a new coach. We now have a new coach and we are still losing. I am not blaming the new coach or the boys on the team. I hope they improve and we start to win. I still like KT as the COACH!!!

have you even been to a game this year, because I've been to EVERY game so far this year and I went to EVERY game last year. If Toney was still our coach this year the scores probably would have been a 30-40 point difference. This year the boys can actually play and don't get slaughtered at games, its about time someone new got in there, I must say I am proud of the boys, and not to mention they have started off the season with some tough teams. Good job boys and keep up the hardwork.

He choked 3 times in the sectional when he had the BEST teams by far. Losing to Bluford with a total enrollment of what 55 kids. Wake up Been there done that you HAVE to be KT or a cronie. Kt is on these blogs more than anyone. The players HATED him.

Kevin Toney is the best coach to walk the Redbird sidelines. He lost 3 sectional championship games, right? How many other coaches in the history of FCHS took a team to 3 sectional championships. And those "great" teams he so-called had didn't always have the most talent but they played well together and played to their strengths because of one common factor: Kevin Toney.
I'm sure Coach Toney is happy where he is and the new coach is happy where he is. I'm sure the kids play hard and the coaches are coaching hard. Sometimes when you aren't very talented, you are not going to win many games.
I don't know who stated that if Toney was the coach they would lose by 30-40 but over the past two nights they surpassed that and lost by 50 and 53. Not the coaches fault but if it was Toney it would be his fault right?
And for someone to make a broad statement like the players hated Coach Toney is ridiculous and ignorant. I'm sure many people and fomer players, who are actually successful and not shit bums would come forward and speak in Kevin Toney's favor as well.

KT never lost a game by 50 and 53 points in 2 nights. If KT was still coaching he might of lost, but at least the loses would be respectable and the kids would not feel so defeated and down on themselves.

I don't know what the answer is. All I know is you can't just blame the coach. Sometimes it does not matter who the coach is or how hard the boys work or good or moral they are. There has to be a winner and a loser and unfortunely we are on a losing streak. To me that does not make the team a loser. Like I have stated in the past. Everytime the pratice and try hard and in the game try as hard as they can they are WINNERS to me.
