  1. You've lost your dang mind. Their coach has no clue what he's doing and the kids look confused as hell. The Millican boy shot some of the worst shots I've ever seen and the coach says nothing.
  2. I heard from someone who has a son on the team that the kids think the assistant coaches do better than the head coach. At first I thought these kids just don't want to be coached hard, but then I remembered we've heard this story out of Lumberton before. Same parent told me that the head coach has a bunch of user names on some message board and posts about himself. I said no way on that one!
  3. Mitchell loses four starters and wins the district last year. He loses a division one player and immediately blasts a team that is in the playoffs every year. When Green, Boutte, or Sigler retires, those schools need to call this cat. He just gets it done. Silsbee better watch out for Lumberton.
  4. I am talking about your son. He is a good player and is strong!
  5. Crosby and United will be fun to watch. Still take United, but Crosby is a real good team. Silsbee vs Lumberton will be a good rematch for two teams who split last year.
  6. To go from unranked to top 10 before district is going to take beating some big names. Who does HF play that could propel them up the list? I know you guys played Coach Brian English and the Runnin' Bulldogs early last year and didn't quite pull off the upset. I like the Longhorns this year, but I don't think they're better than Nederland or a top 10 4A team. That one muscled up kid that can play inside and out is nice though.
  7. Those Fannett kids should have a good year. They have four really good players who have been through some adversity.
  8. I don't know how WOS only won ten games last year. Offensive player of the year, two 6'7 bigs, athletes everywhere, and a college commit (Jack's nephew wink wink) should get no worse than second in a weak district. The only time I saw them "dominate" in the summer they lost to Orangefield and the summer coach was trying to fight people. Is it time to shift allegiance to HJ maybe? I do think Chris Castille will right the ship and have them in the top two.
  9. I'd say Lumberton was far more talented than Huffman. A bunch of 6'4 plus kids led by a Lamar signee and they got absolutely run out of the gym by a Huffman club who only played basically five kids and were led by a 5'9 D3 kid. I'd say that is coaching, but lots of people were outcoached by Huffman this year.
  10. Massive oversight on my part! Sigler is easily a top tier guy and Joubert has to be in that second group. So the list gets stronger...
  11. Texas football fans thought Mack Brown was underachieving too. How did that work out for them? Clay does a fantastic job at HJ. Imagine how they'd have done had Parquet and the 6'10 kid stayed over there? I'd say they've lost more in transfers than they've gained.
  12. I feel like making the playoffs four times ever is the opposite of impressive. How long has Mitchell been there? What is his overall record? Where are the big, marquee wins? I think he's a good coach, but I just don't see him as a top 10 guy in the area. Maybe that is more of a reflection on how many good coaches there are. 1st Tier: David Green, Todd Sutherland, Andre Boutte 2nd Tier: Brian English, Scott Barrett, Kevin Foster 3rd Tier: Clay Davis, Travis Williams, Chris Pennington, Brian Whitmire, DJ Wilson
  13. If you want to be on the best coaches list then you need to have a lot of wins year in and year out. The scorecard of a good coach is literally wins and losses or win percentage. Good coaches find ways to get the job done no matter the talent level. Or they work their way into a position with better pieces, but there are no excuses and you can't knock someone for having talented players. Comes down to getting wins. You cannot bash Duane Joubert for having a couple of out of character rough seasons and then praise Josh Mitchell for having a couple outlier strong seasons. That's a double standard. I also don't think you can be an "up and comer" if you've been a head coach for over a decade. Lastly, a top coach in the area should be confident enough in himself and his program not to fish for compliments. Andre Boutte and Todd Sutherland are probably not too concerned with internet rankings.
  14. You really think Division 2 and 3 coaches aren't smart enough to tell their players to shade to the kid's only hand? Seriously, him being a functional basketball player is an amazing feat.
  15. People these days want to have life handed to them on a silver platter. Nobody wants to take the time to build a program and develop it. Rome wasn't built in a day. Not really the message to send to kids.
