    Wow, Cardsrule, shots fired at CoCh Gairher at Collins. You stated that you don’t think he could do the same as coach Burns with the talent level Spencer has in last 5 years????? What has Burns done? Has he beat Gairher? Has he won a tourney game? What is it that you are looking for? Yes, Burns has a good rep, but let’s be honest, is Burns even in this discussion if a certain player does not “transfer” from Shelby to Spencer? So not sure you can play the transfer card...

    Talent disparity mentioned above is the head to head disparity.

    If you presume that the transfer from Shelby County is the only player Spencer County has then you haven't been following the program. Spencer County has had one transfer EVER. How many has Gaither had?

    Cardsrule, did you just take to time to write a book so you could inform us about Burns “almost wins” and “close losses”?

    Or was the purpose of the book to accuse Gaither of winning with transfers while your best player came from Shelby Co?

    Must be a different mentality over there in Taylorsville?

    Y’all stay happy about never winning a postseason game.

    Somebody woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Enjoy the upcoming season and we will revisit this message.

    I think Spencer is good, but let’s not pretend that Conley is not the best player they have and have had for a long time. You take him away and Spencer is not in discussion. The Pg is good, however, undersized, and the 2 shooters are solid high school players but very wirey and have not proven they can do more than spot up shoot.

    You don’t have to be so defensive while you throw so much shade at Collins. Spencer has had major improvement with the transfer they got and I know they almost got another from Henry that would have made them a ton better. I am one of the guys that thanks Spencer could have a big year, but if your wanting us to anoint Burns COY for an 0-5 post season record, not going to happen.

    Let’s just agree that the battles in the 30th will all be good, and even though you don’t see Shelby as a threat they have a great shooting Soph, a solid Pg that is a Frosh named Toole,who I would stack up against Spencer’s any day of the week, and Gordon, tingle, and TJ down low which you will have absolutely no answer for!!!

    I will agree that Spencer and Collins will have some battles for sure. I understand that you are a Shelby County fan and you are being optimistic to say the least. Your analysis of Spencer County is way off other than the fact that Conley is their best player.

    Who are some dark horses for the region this year? I predict South Oldham will be way better than some people are thinking. Does anybody know the name of the freshman that I saw playing for them over the summer? He was awesome! I thought he looked like their second best player! Very impressive.

    There will he battles with all 4 teams. Please provide facts on why Spencer should be on same level as Collins. This is great bulletin board material for the Rockets. I think all 4 will battle. Lots of people sleeping on Shelby. Lots of size down low to deal with.

    I don't think teams look at message boards of fans for bulletin board material. If so you better watch out for Anderson because you were bashing them all over this thread.

    All jokes aside if Conley and Whitlock can stay healthy Spencer County should do fine.

    Is the Whitlock the PG or the wing? I hope every kid stays healthy, even Burns with all this pressure you are putting on him.
    Not sure if teams look at it but I am making sure Shelby does so they can use it!!
    Anderson needs all the motivation they can get. Coach Ryan Huat is suppose to be a great coAch at Anderson and they will play hard for him. Gonna be a fun season.

    Do the Spencer County players have a history of injury? I see quite a few posts saying, “If Spencer stays healthy”, they can achieve this and they achieve that.

    Like I said--I don't think fan message boards put pressure on anybody or provide bulletin board material. Yes Whitlock is the point guard and Conley plays all five spots. The biggest thing is that you will be surprised to find out that there are several more high quality players on that team than just those two. Senior combo guard Seawright had one heck of a summer on the AAU circuit. I believe senior Jackson Cole was 5th in the state in three pointers made. Sophomore Lucas Hornback should open some eyes. I don't have anything against Shelby County but realistically you have to have great guard play to be very good. Their guards do not match up to Collins and Spencer County. Actually Collins is loaded with quality guards. Sure, anybody can get lucky on a given night.

    Yes there have been a few injuries over the past couple of years.

    As we will be surprised with Spencer players, which maybe we will, can we not be surprised by what Shelby has at guard?? They have the best Frosh in the district, Secori Toole, and the Griffin kid can shoot it with anyone Spencer has, even Cole!! Get Cole out of corner and let’s see what happens.

    I stopped by Shelby practice today and read entire thread to them and man they went that much harder.

    I like Spencer and there team but I feel like I am arguing against the Houston Rockets when in reality we are discussing the Orlando Magic.

    I'll save your comments for discussion after Spencer and Shelby play. Take off those glasses friend. If a team needs motivation from a fan message board then they have motivation issues. After reading your comments it's obvious you don't know much about the other teams in the region besides what Shelby County has and you really don't have an unbiased view of that. I'll discuss any other team in the region with you but we clearly will not agree with what Shelby County and Spencer County has at his point. Have a good day!
