  1. I'm currently driving this point home. Had a bunch of kids with happy feet.
  2. Hey guys, after about a decade of retirement from basketball coaching I've decided to throw myself back into the fray. I'm used to coaching kids who are a little older (11 to 14 year olds). This time I took on a younger group, more introductory basketball. I got 2 to 3 kids who are fairly skilled with the basketball, the rest are a work in progress. So, I was wanting to lean on my BGP brothers and sisters for some advice, tips, drills. Anything that will help with the progression of getting these kids to a more polished level. At this age, winning would be a bonus but ultimately I don't really care about that right now. I'm more so looking to get these kids ready for the next jump in competition.
  3. Calm down. Florida game was locked up in the first half too.
  4. Oline came to play. Let's go D. I want a shutout!!!
  5. Going to go on a limb and say...."mark it down"....Cats will cover the spread. Yes, the dreaded "mark it down".
  6. #11 for Brossart is a monster football player. He's got heart, speed, and talent. As a new Brossart guy, I look forward to his development. At a small school like that, if kids can learn from him then the future is bright.
  7. The team lacks attitude and identity. I pointed it out in a preseason thread (not meaning to pat myself on the back). Say what you will, but Touchdown Terry would have made a difference in this one.
  8. As someone who has been in the trades since the age of 16, I'd say that some of the biggest issues is repeatability and prefabrication. In my subdivision, I'm watching homes being built in 2 months. Carpenters are basically given prefabricated kits to assemble. Homeowners have a limited choice on the construction of their homes. It's taken originality out of the building process and it just seems boring to me. As a side note, I've talked to one of the general contractors that's been building homes in this area for awhile. He's been telling me that the builders in this area are planning for yet another housing recession that he expects to hit within the next year or so. Modifications from original plans cost way too much. I suspect a major cause of this is the limited availability of skilled craft workers that are willing to accept the challenge. Ultimately, I'm not sure what the fix is, but I suspect that wages need to increase for the skilled craft worker. But that does nothing to help the housing market. As a parent, if my children (who are 9 and 5 years old) show limited interest in their education then I will push them into the trades. It has worked for me. I started out as a mud man for brick layers, moved on to firefighting, then installed industrial remediation systems and now work as a pipeline control technician for a major utility. It took me some years to make the wage that i've wanted, but where I am now I'm able to support my family on my job alone. I'll be honest, I don't see this trend stopping anytime soon. Not to paint with a large brush, but no one wants to come out of high school and turn wrenches.
  9. Pretty much exactly where I was at as well.
  10. I would have never recruited a kicker with the name of Chance Poore. Dude just has a scared face at all times. I hope he can get some confidence going. A kicker without confidence is a soccer player.
