    Welp, it's settled then. Coach Wallace will do what no other coach in Ky., Ohio, IN., TN., Fl., etc.. has been able to do. Wowza, I can't wait to see this.

    I stand corrected...Wright started the game and then came out.

    Why not think he can have success against T? He has shown his teams can play toe to toe with them, so no reason not to think he canít do the same.

    You're right...no team will ever beat Trinity for the rest of history. Absolutely impossible.

    One can only aspire to be allowed on the same field as the mighty T program.

    Congratulations, Xavierians! I am excited about this hire! I'm really looking forward to epic battles again, and for that rivalry excitement to return. It's been far too long. This is good for us too! Kids want to be a part of something great. And it looks like this could be a matter of returning to 2 GREAT traditions. Looking forward to the Coach Wallace Era! See 'ya at PJCS!

    I am very happy you understand. Kidding aside, I expect Coach Wallace to have more success against Trinity than the other coaches have had in the past few years. Trinity has held the top spot in big school football for 50 years. I don’t expect that to change. Coach Wallace played has played Trinity close during his time at BG. I look for that to continue.

    I think the games will definitely be more interesting and more competitive. I said before I think it's a good hire, and I'm kind of surprised that X went outside their house for the hire.

    Ok. All kidding aside. Congratulations on a great hire, X. I hope the games against Trinity do become competitive again.

    Thought never crossed my mind. Doubt if it did anyone else's either. Fact of the matter is he wasn't available, not under the conditions HHS would be able to offer. It's a dream set up for him at X and he's certainly earned it.

    How long, realistically, can coach Wallace lead X? Taking over a program like that at age 57 is no small task.

    Good question, I would think five to eight years. Collecting a full pension to go along with the salary he'll collect will give him the opportunity go salt away a nice little nest egg in that time.

    Congratulations to X.
    Didn't take long for some Trinity fans to make this all about them. Give me a break.

    How old is Haywood (Belfry coach)?

    How old was Bob Schneider when he retired at Newport Catholic?

    If things go well and Wallace enjoys the job, I don't see why he wouldn't be there at least 10 years.

    I don't know, how old are they.
