    Needless to say there is a ton of outrage in Somerset right now over the football field and its condition.

    So random side thought from this:

    Coach Hines has proven himself to be a top notch Coach who can build a program from the feeder system up and develop Quarterbacks.

    One would think that if any high profile job in Kentucky came open and Hines was interested that he would have a very good pedigree to be offered the job.

    Does this decision create a little emotional erosion with Hines and the Pulaski County job?

    It's not like Pulaski is already blessed with the best facilities..but for a Coach who utilizes a spread offense who is fresh off the first State Championship in Pulaski County History one would think a turf field would be very advantageous to helping sustain future success and building the program.

    If I am the AD at a school with resources or a strong history who may have to replace a retiring coach I would think this helps make Hines a lot more approachable and open.

    Not sure. I'll see what I can find out. I only saw outrage from Pulaski County.

    Dang, the funding was in place and they still said no? That's crazy.

    I haven't seen Southwestern's football field but I do like their campus layout. Very impressive looking.

    If they can't get a new field I could see him leaving after this season. This group of seniors is way too good to leave. After this year I could see him leaving if the school board doesn't right this wrong.

    What reasons did they give for denying the funding?

    What type of financial resources did they have in place to fund the renovation?

    The crazy thing is everything else about the stadium is great. I loved it there when I filmed a bowl game there in 2012. Press box was nice. It has nothing to do with the game, but the view from the pressbox looking out over the countryside was awesome.
