    I agree... To be successful, you must have a staff that works hard - and I didn't mean to imply otherwise. What I am saying is that, at some programs, that hard work produces more. Imagine a football program as a 4-wheel drive truck. Gotta have a great motor (coaching staff), but there are places that, all things being equal, the tires just get better traction.

    I forgot Beechwood... I don't know if there are any county schools I would add. Boyle is as close as you can get, I suppose - but there will still be fluctuations in talent. I would argue that Danville is similar - they have ebbs & flows. Even Sam Harp had a 4 win regular season, there. If a coach as top notch as Coach Harp can lose 7 games, then I wouldn't say it was a "cruise" control kind of job.

    Some of the discussions about job openings brought to mind something a few coaches have said to me, over the years: "There are really only about 10 good jobs in the state, the rest you have to MAKE good jobs." So, I ask BGP, what are the 10 jobs in the state that are "good" jobs - where even an average coach would be successful (W-L, NOT fan expectations)? My attempt, in no particular order. I kind of petered-out at 7: 1) Trinity...

    Let's go to 1 class... And forget all this "participation trophy" crap - let's not have a playoff game, at all. The number one team can play against itself, Bugs Bunny-style. I am tired of all the whining from losers who want everyone to be in the playoffs. Just work harder.

    This is my favorite thread, every year... I love to hear all the different traditions that teams have for Thanksgiving practices.

    All blowouts... I guess we need to just let 4 teams in the playoffs.

    I am honestly not sure a Bye week is really a good thing for a team. Especially one that is on a roll. So, I am not sure that it is really much of a reward. At any rate, I think all the hand-wringing about the playoffs is overblown, anyway.

    I agree... The staff at Boyle obviously speaks for itself. Mercer has a quality staff. Coach B has a good group of young coaches who work their guts out and are quality men in the community, too. Coach Perry does a great job at Garrard. Although Lincoln has struggled, I think Coach Leffew works his tail off there, and gets a lot out of a tough situation.
