    The arguments made on here would be great if we were all in a room together. I think we could get a lot of stuff ironed out. As far as the committee/no committee thing goes, I can see positives and negatives with both. I reckon that whatever system your school uses, you gotta just hope that the best decision is made. Sometimes the best coach isn't the best applicant. Sometimes the best coach is not as strong in the classroom. I think athletics provide so much for a school and a community and I am a big fan. I do think there needs to be a good balance between education and athletics for them both to thrive. Saying a school can only be good if X coach is hired is kind of like saying there is only 1 person on this planet that you are compatible with. I think the major problem we have today isn't that Ag takes away a lot of our "big uglies" or that the Principals' buddies are getting hired, but it's the players we have to work with. Think about how many kids now don't want to put the work in during summer practices or off-season conditioning. I think this, like many problems we have, goes back to the way these kids are raised. Now, I'm not saying all the blame is on the kids, but even when I was in school (graduated in 2000), the attitudes and work ethics were different. They are products of their environments, both home and at school. I just think our expectations have been lowered and they are now comfortable under-achieving. Here at Lewis County, we have several kids walking the halls that would help our team, when we ask them about football they just don't seem interested. I think it takes a special person to be a football player. Not everyone is cut out to be a football player. We are just running out of kids that want to put the work in. Why? I'm not sure, but I have a feeling that parental expectations are WAY lower than they used to be.

    That little part about "summer practices" I'm telling you is more to this equation (both players declining and coaches getting out) than most want to accept (and, understandably so from both ends).

    Coaches control the amount of time spent on football in the summer...maybe coaches feel as though they have to practice because others are, but each coach/program decides their own practice schedule.

    Coaches have to do what is best for them and their program... maybe you aren't as sharp the first few games of the season because you take more time off in the summer...but maybe that leads to more in the tank come playoff time.

    I won't disagree with any of that. Definitely two sides to that coin.

    Very true. There are way too many variables here just to isolate one. We have a lot of work to do to get Kentucky Football where it needs to be.

    Heard that the committee voted 6-2 to hire Kevin Mays, a head coach at a 7A school in Florida, but that the committee went with Ryan Sizemore as new head coach. Not sure if an announcement has been officially made as of now.

    Why would Kevin Mays come to KY.

    I know a couple of his guys from Viera signed with EKU this year. He is also friends with Pulaski Football on Twitter. Maybe there is a connection there?

    I was told that John Hines (Pulaski Head Coach) once coached in Florida long ago, and actually coached that guy.

    Did anyone read his bio? Looked at the website where he is? If he was legit and really wanted to come to MoCo....and the football committee wanted him....and the SBDM council didn't hire him........not much left to say. They took the railroad tracks up in Mt. Sterling 30 years ago but somehow there is a train wreck there time after time.

    I think Kevin Mays has been looking to coach in KY for several years. Probably not the first job he was offered.

    Like I said Montgomery county Administration are bunch of clowns. Hire the Best coach and move forward, to many hidden agendas anymore.

    You are correct, for what reason it escapes me, but Coach Mays has been trying to get into Kentucky for quite some time.

    If all goes well we will have a coach by the end of the week. I'm sure they will make the announcement on Friday at about 4 o'clock.
