  1. So they go from Knowles to HIM? Why did they let go of Knowles in the first place?  This move wasn't even a LATERAL one in my opinion. Had to be some sort of personality conflict.

    Over Marquis Saveat? Interesting hire. Thought this one was a one horse race..

    No secret on the boys hire. It's David Green. From the info that I have gathered, they had to repost the position due to adding "assistant athletic director" to the title, so that they could justify the money. They had to follow protocol on the hire. It takes time. Have some patience, folks! Tammy Walker-Brown is going to be the girls choice, and that was easy to see as well.

    Cats out of the bag...wonder why are they waiting so long? Is North Shore going to up the ante?

    OK I get it now. It takes a special talent to win 3rd place at Ozen after all they did was win in basketball over the last 17-18 years, winning 12-13 district titles outright in a ROW during that span  I get it now. My mistake. I thought that Beaumont was the largest area in SE Texas with the largest pool of kids to pull from and they somehow managed to have a surplus of talent since the school opened up, but suddenly the tank was empty, and he was the only coach that could manage to squeak out a third place finish, because certainly there were no other coaches in the UIL to come in third and beat a second place team in the first round of the playoffs in another district. What was I thinking? 3rd has got to be the new 1st place. PLUS I must have been crazy to think that Temple is not the same because after all, they DID win 8 games last year. My apologies for just not knowing the real deal about this situation.

    I certainly wasn't trying to make you angry, and I have nothing against Thomas or Dickie V, I was simply asking a question.  The bottom line is 1) Temple IS NOT the job that it once was, and 2) what was done at Ozen WAS very average. It was 3rd place. Ozen at one point won like 10 or 11 district titles in a row. So, yes, there would be no parades for a 3rd place finish, although Coach Thomas may have done a good job getting them there, it was no special feat. Not saying that its not IN him, its just not been shown yet. Its very early in his career and quite honestly he was at the right place at  the right time to get Ozen. I hope he does an outstanding job at Temple, my question was how could you be so sure?  That's no knock against him, its a legit question.  I wish him the best, but I think you're being a bit over zealous.

    Ok I’ll bite. What makes you so sure he will do that? In his one year at Ozen they finished 3rd in district. Yes, they won a playoff game, but many coaches have done that. I’m not being cruel towards your guy, but I’m just curious to know what makes you so sure he will turn Temple around, other than the fact that he is obviously your friend? The fact is, Temple is a job that no one wants anymore, otherwise, there would have been more qualified applicants from that area vying for that job. Again, no harm towards Thomas, he’s a super person, but, this wasn’t Duncanville we are talking about, it’s a program that’s been down a really long time, and Thomas won the gig. That’s it.
  10. I hate to say that I told you guys that this was coming, but.....I TOLD YOU GUYS THIS WAS COMING! So, now who gets PAM? I say Marquis Savaet is the easy choice.  What do you guys think?

    I will assume it will be over in about 2 and 1/2 hours.  I was wondering if anyone knew who it was going to be beforehand. Any good guesses? lol
