    I could be wrong but I believe he follows the Paintsville Tigers. Just a lil hometown pride in the Eagles across town I imagine.

    Russell fans should be all too familiar with that argument.

    Sidenote: As a youth coach, I obviously didn't scout and prepare my team for the next opponent. I put in an offense and a defense and let the players play their position. With that said, my defense was put in place to stop the Wing T and the Wing T only. My thought process was, if we can stop the Wing T, we will stop just about anything. That's how important and difficult stopping the Wing T is. My team hardly ever lost more then one or two games with that defense and I think my justification for running that defense was validated.

    Since this has taken a tangent into the validity of the Wing T, let me ask a few questions: How many college teams run a variation of the Wing T? How many NFL teams run a Wing T variation on occasion? Spoiler alert, more then you think.

    It's kind of like the argument I get into on occasion about the best all-around-cartride. I always go with the 30-06 and people say, "that's an outdated round", "it's been replaced", blah, blah, blah. The 30-06 is more versatile going from 55 grain to 220 grain. And the people that argue with me always say the .308 is the best, where do you think the .308 came from? That's right, it's a shortened 30-06 with the same .30 bullet. New is not always better, it's just copied from something old.

    "Submission" That is some serious smack talk.

    Get in line. There are others threatening the same outcome for the Wildcats.

    I'm glad you said this(a version). What those teams do is use a version of the Wing T offense and create a balance between running and passing the ball. The version that most of those teams run no way resemble the lack of diversity that most high school teams run in the State of Kentucky. You are correct; it is used more often than we realize but again it's not the same version.
