    This is standing up to it. The fact that Doss made the choice to not play the game because of the volatile racial climate in Corbin is what MAKES the discussion of the racial climate in Corbin happen. Going down and playing the game might as well just be to Doss community ignoring the Corbin players comments and acting as if they never happened.

    I guess my comment to this would be we are letting one high school kids words sway an entire community.

    Granted i dont know the whole story, but on the surface of this thread thats what it sounds like to me.

    According to Corbin Athletic Director Andrew Roark, Corbin had a scheduling conflict with Doss. "We had a scheduling conflict with them," Roark said. "They called us and asked us about changing it, letting us dissolve on the contract. We ended up agreeing to it and going for it."

    According to Corbin Athletic Director, Andrew Roark, the decision to cancel the Doss game was talked about weeks ago. "We talked about it a month or so ago," Roark said. "We made the decision a while back--- it was actually made before all the mess."

    I live here. The "volatile" racial climate is a figment of the imagination of people from outside of Corbin.

    Doss secured a 61-57 OT win @ Collins in the replacement game. It appears as if they probably made the right call from a W/L standpoint.
