    Seems to me that Cooper got their best two players in school history as transfers from WV.
    AJ Collins wasn't from WV


    You do know what I mean though.

Cordia knows who is against them, it's an assistant at Perry Central and some other people who are no longer there. Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions but it's like you people think that he's so deep in the game that he can convince college players like Malik Hines or Emmanuel to come to Cordia knowing that he has the experiences of all he's been through but doesn't know how to play the game right? Keep underestimating him if you want but know you don't get to where he's got by being as blatantly stupid as some people are acting like they know him to be. No one is saying he will get off scottfree but he has a good team of lawyers representing him and you can look that up if you don't believe me.
    to the bolded...you mean coaching high school bball in eastern KY?

I just can't and don't believe that happened.
    Then how is he eligible at Hazard?

    The list of approved transfers by the KHSAA is long and lengthy....and openly debated here. There have many that I have questioned and still don't understand why they were ever approved. The KSHAA should have never let the kids at Cordia play if there was a concern.

    How did you know I was referring to them? You're right...on a technicality. Both were in WV schools and made the move to Cooper.

    BTW...big AJ Collins fan here.

    Of that your guess is as good as mine and I'm not familiar with that particular situation. However, I would bet a paycheck that the KHSAA didn't make any sort of "give us dirt and we will let you play at Hazard" deal with him. That would be the ultimate in stupidity for the KHSAA. Now, the KHSAA has it's faults, of that there is no question, but the leadership and the association as a whole isn't THAT dumb.

    I don't have any say in this mess, that's just what I was told. I do think it would be weird for him to get eligible at Cordia for a year then transfer to Hazard and be eligible without having to sit out...Something is up I think

    Yep, I don't remember the particulars but I remember a LOT of people being upset over that and calling the KHSAA out over the decision.

    Hopkinsville, Scott County, and Trinity have me thinking otherwise.

Even you talk about his past and all his connections and how he could see how things are run from a perspective of being on the inside and yet he still got caught which tells me he isn't very smart.

    Or maybe everyone is assuming all this stuff that people have on him and don't realize that it might not be as strong as they think.

    The way people talk, you'd think Rhodes had some assistant that was ready to jump anyway, holding up a birth certificate and set of dental records while the assistant was filming.

    I mean building up a school that's never won anything to the point that the rest of the teams in the region, including the one that has transfers from New York, Philadelphia, Sheldon Clark, Buckhorn, and Breathitt County over the past few years will let an assistant build a case against them, then yes.

    Don't understand the knock on east KY. What other school have former NBA players and college assistants coaching?

    Does that warrant a pass? You act as if that alone warrants them a get out of jail card or something. Who cares? If they were so great why haven't they won anything worth while?

    Hey, I you and others a chance to prove me wrong by simply listing last years starters and where they were from ( born and raised) and then I may believe you if they were or the majority of them were from that school district or even that county.

    Prove me wrong, prove to me that Cordia didn't recruit players from out of state etc. You could do that pretty simply by showing the starting 5 from last year and where they were from. I don't know, maybe all 5 are from there, I'm just asking for you to give me that information.
