    When the weather is good early on in the season? I think it's very important. As the weather gets colder, the less and less people that come out. At that point in the season, I don't think it matters if it's small town or the big city in regards to being on the road....crowd(s) are usually small. At home? I think it just depends on the program. If its a blue blood, even small towns/county's, crowds are dependent on who the opponent or game...

    That's going to be the hire & should be IMO. Ross deserves his shot. He's been with his dad at John and then has been running the defense ever since going with him to E-town. Offensively they'd still the same. As the old saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Ross is also in the building and has been as a PE/Health teacher. His dad was just coaching since retiring from the classroom/admin at John Hardin. So, in a smaller school...

    Jeff Hester is still there. His youngest son will be a senior next year. He can retire from teaching either at the end of this year or next, now whether or not he will keep coaching after that I'm not for sure. The defense will still be in great hands.

    Considering their levels of talent- they win. I never said win titles, I just said "it wins".

    I agree. I love the hire from one standpoint because it's Mike Leach and his whole persona. They'll win 6-8, maybe a 9 or 10 here or there- but, it will be around that 7 win average like Morehead. Still blows my mind that some of these schools like Mississippi State and other mid tier Power 5 schools think they are "to good" to hire guys like Jeff Monken from Army, Niumatalolo from Navy, Troy Calhoun from Air Force or even Paul Johnson who...

    I totally agree. There is nothing more that I love than watching college football, but it's becoming one of those things where I'll just watch the highlights/cut ups on youtube the next day. Or I find myself watching the service academies (along now with UK even more) because of their style- it's throwback, it wins and it doesn't take up an entire afternoon/evening to watch their games.

    I want to say they’ve only had one winning season in the last 12 years or so. Had a couple .500 regular seasons.

    Ty Scroggins had a below .500 record at Doss before getting Louisville Central. Kevin Wallace was 10+ games below .500 after a 10 year stint at Warren East- also never having won a playoff game, before going to BG as an assistant and later getting the job. Robbie Lucas had two bad years at Lincoln County for his first head coaching stint, then like Wallace, goes back to Somerset to be an assistant. Gets the job. The rest is history. ...

    They definitely care about those two sports there and are successful. That's for sure. Most know what their gym looks like- a Taj Mahal of sorts, and their Soccer complex/stadium is as nice as many football facilities across the state.

    You would have thought. That was already going to be a 6 team district, an I believe it was thought they would end up with Christian, Bowling Green, South Warren, Greenwood which would have made it a 6 team district as well (although geography wise would/should have meant Marshall would have swapped out with Grayson, Breck, Ohio, Muhlenberg) Then again, I could completely be wrong with all of this. I thought they had released the...

    They are actually are 5A enrollment wise and elected to play up in 6A, which I didn't blame them for that. It was either Bowling Green, South Warren, Christian County & Greenwood or (and, no offense to these programs at all, but I think we'd all agree they're much more similar to) Daviess County, Apollo, Henderson County, McCracken County. I agree with what you said though in regards to talent level/numbers wise compared to the actual class....

    Correct. Classified (ie: coaching) compared to Certified (ie: teaching).

    It gets tricky. But a coaching position is considered a classified job, so the 30 day rule doesn’t apply. Now, of course the new coach will have a teaching position, but that side of the thing can be drawn out to meet the 30 day requirement. Unofficially official kind of deal.

    It is, although they’ve had it before in the past. Probably no better place to live, though in the state if you are a fan of the outdoors and recreation. They do have facilities.

    I agree. If it’s going to be cold, then it might as well snow.

    Add CAL to the list as well as LCA, from a football side of things. Financially, retirement/benefits if you are actually a teacher? That I’m not sure. As good as being a public school teacher w KTRS? Not even close. LCA- hired from within, correct?

    I’ll throw out some other “bigger jobs” that have come open that fit within that criteria- they also hired from within. Not exact on the years, but: -Owensboro -Madisonville -Paducah Tilghman All three in house hires (Tilghman most recently was an in house hire after Steve Duncan had to resign due to to health issues. Interim tag and then later tabbed the HC following the season). I think Henry Clay is a good job that came open and...
