  1. I was told at the ALL athlete conditioning days they were averaging 25-30 and some days as low as 17. That was TOTAL athletes. So numbers are down in all sports when it comes to conditioning and summer workouts.
  2. I think everyone is just going by what the article said. Pretty much about the assistant coaches not the players. No need to prove it. Getts has a proven track record. I'm pretty sure there are a few here that could say what went down. As a fan do you know, or what you were told? I'm pretty sure Coach Getts will coach again. No desire to retire from what I was told. As far as proving it, I'm pretty sure Coach Getts has plenty of text messages from the players to prove whose a fool.
  3. I guess it is all about the assistants and what they wanted. Yes, very interesting.
  4. WOW, Never heard of a Coach being forced out because of his work ethic.
  5. Unfortunately times have changed. Coaches getting to stay at a school for long durations won't be as common as the past. Parents/schools, whomever may be at fault do not support coaches as in the past. Yes, there are still some that do but as those long time coaches retire you start to see the turnovers. Another concern is the long time coaches who have had no parental issues for many year-- are now being accused of this or that. Times have come that schools will insist coaches coach the parents, not the players. Some of you will understand what I mean. When coaches are told whom to play or not play, when they can hold weights/practices etc., it makes the coaching professional life short lived and tough.
  6. Have to agree. Many years coaching and no complaints and then all of sudden BOOM. HMMMMMMMMMMMM Appreciate your last sentence............... very true.
  7. By all means lets show both sides of demeanor. “We stepped on the field, we weren’t going to be intimidated and the kids held their ground,” Braves coach Larry Getts said. “They said, ‘We’re just as good as you,’ and they played that for four quarters. That’s what the games are about right now. So many times teams come out against Luers and just fall apart because they get caught up with the helmet, they get caught up with the championships, our kids just said, ‘Let’s play football.’ That was after his Bellmont team upset Luers for a sectional title. Now on a side note I thought the Gridiron Digest prided themselves on "no rumors" Lets continue the talk about the teams in the conference and not the gossip.
  8. Maybe administration doesn't see a situation that needs rectified. HC that are forced to retain old coaching staffs sometimes need to make changes and improve. Some coaching staffs see that others are set in their ways and quit. Choice is theirs. Hurts the kids but it happens at schools all the time. New HC's come in and many times don't retain old coaching staffs, sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn't. Hard to say when you bring a coach it that has had success turning programs vs. old staff with little winning success. Sometimes HC bring in their own compatibatible staff and its a whole new ball game. Yup rumors always are a flying.
  9. my call is he will land at Law Central
  10. Thought both days were officiated very well. The only hit I saw was knee pads. All season long the pre-game meeting between officials and coaches centered around the knee pads covering the knees of the players. In some cases officials made claim that players that don't abide by this policy will not play. Yet in the 6A game I see a player from Penn and from Ben Davis that clearly did not have their knee pads covering the knees. Must just be a regular season rule!
  11. Dead Snap

    In the dead snap (shotgun snap) the center holds the ball at the point. what angle does the ball have to be in order to make it a legal snap?
  12. Free Blocking Zone w/ Shotgun

    refresh me on cut blocking when in shotgun: QB aligns at 4 yds and steps forward to receive the snap; meshes with dive back at 3yds; what is the rule for cut blocking?
  13. Free Blocking Zone w/ Shotgun

    just checking again. the free blocking zone allows for cut blocking and not clipping, correct? if in gun what constitute cutting immediately especially with the QB inside 4 yds when he catches the snap and meshes with the TB
  14. thought you couldn't do any football related stuff this week....just workout????? can anyone clarify?
  15. only thing that we want are players who compete! Without that element speed and strength matter very little
