    I would say there's the door, don't let it hit you on the way out

    The players had a quick meeting with Coach Biggs last week, have heard a few complaints about their first impression but only time will tell. Know he sent Garrison a message this weekend saying he looked forward to meeting him at open gym this week, Garrison was at the meeting and spoke with him, guess he didn't know who he was

    I don't personally know Coach Biggs. Know the conversations I overheard while playing at Ashland last season were very negative about his ability to interact with the players. I would be lying if I said I wasn't nervous about the change, but will make my own judgements as the season begins.

    You need to respect your leader,not necessarily like them. That got lost at Ashland. Parents need to be respected not necessarily liked, you do not need to be your kids best friend. My generation of parents for some reason did not raise great parents. I say it again, if the coach is not abusive or lying to your kid you need to support them both and not trying to pacifie your kid.

    I am in no way trying to pacify my child, nor did I say that I disliked the coach. I stated that I had not formed a opinion on Masons decision for head coach, regardless of the things I've heard. I personally hope he puts some fire in them.

    I've spoke with several players from the team, and not one of them have mentioned transferring. Did they tell you personally that they wanted Brian as the head coach?As I've said before, I can't make a judgement about the head coach decision because I do not know the new coach. I hope he has great success and gets great results from the players.

    No player in particular. Just different people that follow Mason County basketball closer than myself share the same concerns as you expressed in your previous post.

    Someone else spoke of transfers i have not heard that yet. But tis the transfer season during the summer AAU leagues is when transfer rumors start heat up. May be nothing come of it but if there is it will be to no ones surprise.

    Appreciate your response, I had actually ment to ask the gentleman that responded to your post saying he heard this from a player himself.
    The only concern or worry that I have is that the same issues that arouse in Ashland, whatever they were, arise here. No one wants to see kids that live and love the game walk away from it. As I also stated, I'm not saying that I have a issue with Masons decision to hire him or that he is a bad fit, just that as a parent of a child who plays, I hope Mason athletes do not have the same issues that Ashlands athletes experienced.

    Yes, sorry not not replying sooner. Didn't have a chance to get to my computer the past few days.

    Hopefully the player changes his mind, he just told me personally he was considering transferring. Coach Biggs has his hands full as far as attitudes and that type of stuff go.

    Summer ball and camps at a lot of schools should be interesting

    If only he could have gotten Stacey to take the ball inside during the Cleveland Macker tourney! (inside joke, ). Congrats to Buddy, from a former fellow West Covington lifeguard!

    13/14 the 40th had 3 new coaches at Montgomery, Bourbon, and Paris.
    14/15 the 40th had 3 new coaches at 2 schools, Montgomery (1) and Bourbon (2)!
