There's a certain amount of barbarianism in the game of football a large amount of it I might add..and it requires a certain type of individual to get that out of these kids...they must play like barbarians and I don't see that at all from Mahan's teams like we did under the former coaching staff  (Nov 9, 2013 | post #40)

The respectful fear they need to have is not there..there's a certain amount of fear a child needs to have of their father...dad's discipline is always tougher than mama's and that's a good thing..that's why single mothers for the most part have a hard time raising kids when they hit the teenage years.. although there are exceptions to every rule....right now we have "mama" coaching our football team  (Nov 9, 2013 | post #39)

They know he's not respected by the players and he's never gonna take this team or any other to where they wanna be and they want to play for a winner..I've heard this from too many kids  (Nov 9, 2013 | post #38)

"Seriously "...let's just say I totally agree with your post...and all that is...is good coaching... I feel sorry for our kids having to endure the effects of poor decision making by our AD who obviously doesn't really know the sport inside and out like an AD should...all of these excuses she's offering up really puts that on display... such as her comments before the NLR game.." another larger opponent"... "out manned" she sounds ridiculous.. excuses excuses and how can our kids believe in what themselves and the coaching staff with her making comments like that..sounds as if she's consenting defeat before the game is even played..also sounds like she's trying to cover her a**..surely our superintendent,boa rd members, booster club members can see through the smoke screen she's trying to put up.  (Nov 6, 2013 | post #31)

WOW...I wish this forum could somehow filter out comments from people who know absolutely nothing about the topic being discussed..." duh" that's the most ridiculous theory I could have imagined someone posting on here... there's absolutely NO logic in your statement...what our program is suffering from is a coach and AD who are in way over their head and anybody who knows anything about the sport knows that if they attend the games...we have a coach trying to implement the wrong scheme for the athletes he has on the field which I don't think it would matter what scheme he comes up with...I don't think the kids have enough respect for him to execute it...there's a lackadaisical effort being put forth by these kids as result of that and I'm blaming the kids at all..when there's a lack of leadership it would happen to any team at ANY level..the kids don't believe in him and I don't see how anyone could expect them to..he's not head coach material and these kids ain't stupid...they know it.  (Nov 6, 2013 | post #30)

In the game of football you have two types of players/teams on the field...you have "hammers " and you have "nails". ..we used be "hammers " under our current coach we have become the "nails". ..plain and simple  (Nov 2, 2013 | post #27)

68-7 last night... SCHOOL RECORD 18TH STRAIGHT LOSS...SCHOOL RECORD IN POINTS GIVEN UP....I don't see how our coach and AD show up for work Monday morning... they're responsible for this NOT THE KIDS...and there's a lot of talk around town about this debacle...people are expecting CHANGES.. playing in a tough division.. having to play larger schools..tired of their excuses... which is exactly what they are.....EXCUSES!!!  (Nov 2, 2013 | post #25)

And I'm not speaking of just the Championship season in 06 (I was at that game)...the man was here for 7 yrs,...and again I say I'm not sure that he was a man of integrity maybe he wasn't... but the man knew how to coach the game of footbal...I witnessed it with my own eyes and to say he deserves no credit for the success he had here is just wrong...I would have to say that a program like Springdale did their homework before they hired him...I'm sure they brought someone in that knew the game and watched game film on him...he had a master plan and he was a master at implementing it and a master play caller....ALL INTEGRITY ASIDE  (Nov 2, 2013 | post #23)

I'm not aware of any of the accusations your making and I'll concede that they may be true... but the man knew how to coach..and knew how to calls plays...exploit a weakness in an opposing team...knew his teams limitations and the things they could do and out coached the opposing teams coach almost game in game out...his worst seasons were when he first started his tenure here... K watched our numbers grow from day one because he convinced the kids they could win..he implemented the strategy talked about earlier about getting all grade levels on the same page even down to the pee wee level...our program was growing under his leadership and even When we lost games we were competitive his teams fought down to the last play of the game.. I never saw a Patrick coached team lay down on him (and his assistants)which deserve some credit for all this no doubt about that and so does Shane Patrick no doubt about that either.. not saying he did everything the right way but the job got done..and what Patrick was good at and in my opinion we won most games this way...he lured a teams defense to sleep with good play call in and then hit them with the home run...I watched this time and time again...once he saw he was getting the opposing teams defense out of position he called the right play for big yardage and touchdowns...again I credit the whole staff  (Nov 1, 2013 | post #22)

"Really" you made a.good point about the amount of kids walkin the halls at the high school.. and some with some size in them that could help this football team...but I've been hearing from the.kids is that won't play ball because they don't believe that they can win with this coach and they don't want to play for him...I will say that's just what I've been hearing from several kids..just hear say but I can't come up with a reason for them to lie about it... and what's this about the coach won't let them participate in any other sports... now that's really counter productive.. that keeps wrestlers off the football field and football players off the wrestling matt..where's the logic in that?...and I may be giving coach Patrick a lil to much credit but it does seem that your not willing to give him ANY credit...which leads me to believe there's an underlying issue???  (Nov 1, 2013 | post #18)
