  1. I'll take a raise, but all I want is 48 minutes with an oblong ball and 22 of my friends.
  2. Staff and students will be required to wear masks in schools when they return. It's a done deal in my district that was discussed with staff yesterday. Students must wear masks in order to receive free transportation, free breakfast and lunch and 7.5 hours of free childcare for their parents. This is the "ultimatum" laid out for students' return to school. Now, if someone said, "If you wear a mask today, you will give a young man the unique opportunity to participate in the greatest game in America. If you don't, they will not." Would you wear a mask? No one has said it yet, but I'm saying it now. I have to look at it through this lense for it to make sense to me. I encourage you folks to as well. Wear a mask for football, please.
  3. That is a good question, is TMU better suited to attract more/better kids from across the river in Cinci? But that may be a topic for a different thread. Regardless of school or level, it is an accomplishment to even be on the list that has been compiled. First, that these athletes have decided to further their education and, second, that they have also dedicated themselves to intercollegiate athletics, because it can be a job at times. Congrats and good luck to each of these young men and to those that will be added.
  4. I guess I've finally reached that point in my life, or that age maybe, so I'll say it for my very first time...BACK IN MY DAY...lol I was once apart of an NAIA squad that had some success. Each year, about 35-45% of the gameday guys were from NKY. I speak mainly offense because that's what I played, but there were a few NKY guys on the defense as well. So out of about 18 guys, 6 or 7 were from NKY. Out of a freshman class of about 50 or 60, there were more than a solid dozen of us that were NKY boys. Like you say, not everyone stays. My point however, is that the other NAIA schools do recruit NKY hard, as evidenced above, and that TMU now has the ability to retain players it would not have been able to in the past, thus getting quality kids amongst the fodder that will inevitably fall out. So TMU has a great advantage. Alternatively, if the NAIA schools, including my beloved Tigers, have shifted strategy and are failing to recruit NKY they have made a grave error if the favor of TMU.
  5. So far from the information in this thread, IMO, it would appear that Thomas More moving to NAIA and being able to offer athletic scholarships has improved its ability to recruit the NKY region. It has also reduced the number of signees going to other NAIA schools in KY from the NKY region. Only one Gtown and Union signee apiece. Alternatively it could be a matter of strategy, an emphasis in recruiting closer to home while the other NAIA programs just aren't recruiting NKY as hard. Either way, I believe its good for TMU and bad for the rest of the MSC. There is much talent in NKY; Talent I would love to see end up at GTown that has now shifted to TMU.

  7. Love it Coach. Great post, sometimes you have to show the guys a different side of yourself. No one loves and wants to play for a stone wall or statue, however they will run through a stone wall for men they have great relationships with. Constantly build and rebuild those relationships. Now my question is this, who is the baker/decorator?
  8. You are obviously a parent that is involved with their child on most, if not all, of the activities he is involved with, including academics most likely. Unfortunately, for a great many children, parental involvement is next to nothing. I have had kids tell me this year that they must quit because their parents won't transport them to and from practice anymore (see the thread about poverty and football from last week for more understanding). I have also had kids tell me that their parents encourage them to quit so that they, the parent, no longer are burdened by the sport. No amount of culture changing with the kids will fix adults who have no buy-in themselves, especially those that are not invested in their own children.
  9. Boys were jacked up and ready for this one. Running clock started late in second quarter. If they continue to play like this...whew...let's just say that everyone involved with this program wants another run at Mason County
  10. With soccer season coming to a close in Pendleton Co, we went under the lights 7-9 last night for practice. Might try to do it the same way for fall break next week. The kids seemed to enjoy it and the field can't get much worse than it already is. We just tried to stay on the periphery most of practice and salvage what we can. It gets a 2 week break while we are on the district road trip, so no more games on it except football games (thank God).
  11. They have in the past but one would think you'd vary the schedule since the new postseason play has you playing within your district. That would mean there is the chance to see Bellevue vs Dayton 3 different times this fall.
  12. I wouldn't trust the khsaa schedule for Dayton just yet, it shows Bellevue on there twice right now so it's not accurate.
