He said losing doesn't matter, only in tournament time. And I`m comical ? How about the kid who started and subbed last year, than didn't play a few games. When he ask why , Tackett said , sorry I forgot about you, have a lot on my mind. So that kid is not playing this year, and would be a nice player that would help team. I`m comical ?..
    Tackett this year called a time out with 10 sec left after Greenup scored, the only problem is Greenup was down 10. I`m Comical ? Last 2 years Greenup didn't play man to man, cause Tackett said didn't match up. Same kids this year , for most part and no 6`7 player Jair Jackson who is playing college. So you lose at 6`7 athlete , but are able to play man now. Hard to understand. (difference Kidwell). So I guess , I`m just crazy to think he`s not a good coach. Like I said ,ask around the 16th or teams they play.
    1. Coach Tackett voluntarily left Logan. He was literally living in an RV and driving home every weekend to see his wife in Eastern Ky. Once Twin Lancaster graduated, he went home.

    2. Obviously you have no idea how traditionally terrible Logan County had been until his arrival. He took that school to the region tournament for the first time in decades.

    3. As far as saying he forgot about putting a kid back in, Coach Tackett is a smart aleck. He wouldn't forget to put a kid back in.

    4. Coach Tackett always switched his defenses at Logan. I guess his refusal to play man is due to a lack of personnel. When we had long athletes at Logan County we played plenty of man. Jair Jackson was always in foul trouble when I saw him so maybe he played zone to keep him from fouling.

    5. Your personal vendetta gets old. Why don't you step out from behind your keyboard and address your issues with Coach Tackett?

    You'd have to remove him from Greg Logan first.

    1 - He lived out of a R.V. , he didn't move to Greenup so why leave. Sounds like he was turning thing`s around. A trip to region tourney ( win district ?) cause if they didn't , in my book not much to brag about. Or did he leave because he lost Region Player of Year, and I`m sure another or two good players. Then it would be back to loosing . So 1 good year out of 4, put that with Greenup 1 for 7, not counting this year.

    2 - If a player comes to the head coach with a serious question , the coach smarts off to them. That's so respectable. So that made the kid not play this year, and he would have been a starter (in my book) or 1st guard sub. This right here shows even more how big of a joke he is.. There are times to joke and time`s you shouldn't , he must not know the when that is.

    3- Tackett did switch defenses, 2-3 or box-1, triangle 2, and 1 I don't know the name of 3 guys man ,2 zone. Cant say I have seen the last one much. Greenup didn't play a team they couldn't match up with, and if Jair got in foul trouble put the next 6`8 guy in Marten. Had speed , and size. He has no clue how to use what he has. On "O" or "D" , like I said ask anybody in the 16th, they will say the same. Last year Gage Hughes was getting a Box-1 played on him a lot, It was brought up to Tackett, (buy a non coach) to try and do more picks or plays to get him open. Tackett said , we don't need our leading scorer, to score for use to win. That didn't work real well. Maybe he was smarting off . And as far ,as me talking to him. Wouldn't help a bit, I just sit and hope he leaves real soon. Nothing I say would help. All I know is a lack of coaching , has cost Greenup a lot of games and maybe a trip to RUPP. I hope you don't go around telling people (that know Tackett`s coaching ) how great he is. That's something you need to keep , to your self.

    Call it what you want, doesn't bother me at all. I have a lot of respect for Greg and Steve , and the rest of his staff. They win, he teaches the game and treats each kid the same, form the D`1 players to the backups . Tackett could learn a lot from the way they coach. Different sport , but a lot is the same in coaching. I do show respect , and point out when things are done right. I just don`t bash all the time, just call it as I see it.

    You can already see change, just wish coach Kidwell was the head coach. One of the worst things about Kidwell being ast , is if Greenup makes a big run in the tourney . Tackett will get the glory, that's a shame

    I know this has nothing to do with the issue, but no way Shauntavian Martin was 6'8". And subbing him for Jair would not give you the same caliber of player. I don't care where he transferred from, he wasn't that tall or good.

    He is as tall as Jair. He was a big body kid, played a different style than Jair. Jair was a shot blocker, that can jump like crazy. A Good coach would know how to use them , put them in the best spot to get there best. Martin had a few good games, and most subs are not as good as starter. If used right , they could have played at the same time, and there wasn't a team in the 16th that had the size to handle both. I seen Martin show he had a chance to be a player, but wasn't worked with and didn't get to play much. Tackett is bad about playing kids a little one game , than the next 3-4 you don't see them. The way he subs is some thing I cant figure out.
