Open Job: Oldham County

Page 2 of The Oldham County Colonels release Head Coach Mike Shatzer after 3 years. I think this is a bad move but being just a parent my opinion really holds no... 45 comments | 6497 Views | Go to page 1 →

    And therein lies your explanation. Whether it be impatient new administration or impatient heads above that, there seems to be a pattern emerging. Shame. Someone above hit the nail on the head about the complexity of coaching at the high school level concerning cyclical talent. Leadership that doesn't understand that complexity is poor leadership at best. Now, if there is more to the story then I stand corrected, but that doesn't appear to be the case here.

    Oldham County has narrowed down to 5. Had a meeting with the returning "Leaders" on the football team, Friday. Interviews are this week. They expect to announce by Friday. Hope they get a good one.

    What's the scoop Jo-Jo?

    Looks like its down to 2. They are bringing them back in next week for 2nd interview. They are keeping it close to the vest. They are saying announcement before the end of the year.

    He was but he withdrew his name for consideration. It's the D-Cord & someone from Cincinatti is what I'm hearing

    Nelson Co & Jtown should not be included in any data-driven analysis.

    Those 4 teams combined on the year only averaged 16.5 points a game and had a combined record of 12-32. 3 of those teams combined for only 4 wins on the season. You can dress it up all you want...

    For arguments sake, if J'town and Nelson County are going to be discredited as I think we'd all agree Oldham is better than them; wouldn't it be wise to discredit the likes of CAL (state champions), South Oldham (5A Semis), Ballard (6A Top 10), etc who I think we'd all agree are on a much different level than Oldham right now as well?

    I agree, so in that case, North Oldham , North Bullitt, Bullitt east, Bullitt Central. That's 19.75 points a game?

    Little can be taken from a box score. Who knows if the defense allowed the points, how many points the defensive generated itself, what were the game scripts, etc, etc. It seems Jo-Jo has some insight here (and a penchant for positive spin) - what's your analysis coach? Is he the man for the job?

    Throwing in those four + Nelson and you get 14 pts/game. Add in Ballard & North Bullitt (7 games) & that's 20 ppg.

    Again, I don't know who deserves it. I mean, I have no clue...couldn't be further from the "goings on" in Buckner/LaGrange, but I think it's only fair to look at the total picture if we are going to start picking and choosing games. South Oldham was dropping points on everybody (including 55 on Pulaski in the semis), CAL is in the same boat (most notably 44 vs Central, 48 on Mayfield) & Shelby has been an offensive freak show in their own right the last two years with a 23-4 record to boot.
