MARCUS GRAHAM HIRED AS BEAUMONT UNITED FOOTBALL COACH!

You own it, but anyone doing hiring or with any sense of the landscape of HS football on a statewide level knows some jobs are simply impossible to succeed at....Graham has clearly demonstrated he's capable of leading good teams...as much as we like to put importance on coaches, in the end you've got to have the personnel to compete...he'll have the personnel at United at the 5A level

Along my line of thinking on this subject...

and I'm not saying coaches dont make a difference because they do...

But if Team A has 50% better personnel than Team B....Team B better have a 50% coaching advantage....and to be honest in most gigs in Texas teams are too well coached to be at that sort of disadvantage when it comes to x's and o's.....

I've said this for years on this site. I think most realize it's true but it always seems to rub the fans of teams a little light on personnel the wrong way.

Smh, I don't understand why BISD didn't hire Jeff Nelson? I know he has some warts and would probably be hard to get by some in the administration but to me you need a guy that fits the culture . . . who also happens to be able to be a solid coach. Not someone who looks at the job and says, "Dang, with this talent all I really have to do is be a competent coach and I can use it as a stepping stone to get me somewhere else."  Again, I know he probably wasn't even seriously considered but there aren't any coaches on that list with noticeably better resumes. I will say I may have reached for Tyrone Carter at Huntsville before giving Nelson another shot though.

Not knocking on Coach Nelson because he is a good coach, but wouldn't you want someone to come in and change the culture of the program instead of just fitting into what is already there?

I think winning games would be the culture change though. Right now I would imagine kids are playing because of the love of the game and potential scholarship offers. If you can put some pelts on the wall I think you would have kids that come out/become more dedicated just because they want to be part of a winning program. That “filler” is what I think helps to separate our teams from some of the more elite teams in the DFW and Central Texas.
 

Considering the situation he was in I always thought Nelson did a good job at Ozen and to me Ozen was just as tough as some of those HISD jobs. I think it’s a little easier to sell the kids what Nelson would bring versus trying to sell them 0-30. I hope it works out though, we need more powerhouses in this region.

No doubt 409 teams have some grit that you don't get at other parts of the state. Honestly don't really think either of them will turn the tides at BU but that's just my 2 cents.

Well if we're giving a dude that lost 30 games in row a pass, then I'm sure we can extend that same logic to a coach that always found a way to win some games.

I'll take the wait and see approach.  All is speculation right now as to who the finalist are, but as far a Graham goes,  I know he's better than the current DC from West Brook and I'm hearing it won't be him.  I also know that El Paso area in general is not really good at football and really don't produce the athletes you see in abundance here in SETX and Houston area.  He had a string of 3 pretty good season in El Paso, then I believe he switched to another EP school and sucked.  I also know that same school, after Graham left, they put up another 0-10 season.  

Hopefully, If Graham is the guy, maybe he learned a great deal from Coach Samples (darn good coach) as an assistant there.  I'm also sure that Graham is a better coach than A.L.

Bait and switch  fake news interviews here we go again smh...jmo...

I mean, you kind of pointed out what I was saying. He had a difficult job and was trending in the right direction. More than that though, I think he's the right "fit". I would put him on the level of someone like a Sadd Jackson if given the right tools. Hiring a guy like they just did I would imagine the win/loss record wasn't as important as hiring someone with a cleaner background.

You wouldn't say that if Broscoe was at United...  🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️🤷🏾‍♂️

I think I would faint if I ever saw a post from Soulja that was at least 6 words long and all were spelled correctly.

It's Briscoe. Not Broscoe

I really wouldn't be worried about me misspelling kid's names.  Obviously, predictive text messed up.  That's my excuse.  What's  your excuse for messing up (mispronouncing) kid's names on broadcasts? 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • Vidor will be the undefeated DC and make a deep playoff run! It's our year, this is our best chance to do something like that in a long time anyways. That is if we play football next season...
    • Well, I wouldn't go that far.....  The thing to remember is that the news media's first priority is generating revenue by selling ads.  More eyes, more ratings, pricier ads.  That's what they're concerned about.  However, that doesn't mean that they're totally wrong.  "Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean that nobody is out to get me" is a good way of looking at it. However, this thing has been totally over-hyped for the most of us.  The media is literally creaming their panties over the fact that they have a constant stream of bad news to send our way. This is in red print on Drudge today. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/experts-trumps-advisers-doubt-white-houses-240000-coronavirus-deaths-estimate/ar-BB1263eT Big news... experts and Trump's advisors doubt white house figures is the headline.  So I read it.  It basically says that "we don't like the predictions put out, but we don't know if they're high or low... We just know that we disagree" with a heavy dose of "Trump bad." I also read a similar article a few days ago that predicted 100,000-240,000 American deaths due to Coronavirus... Within hours I was seeing headlines that read "Experts predict 240,000 American deaths." I'll be the first to admit that there's some bad things going down in NYC and NOLA right now.  I think it'll continue to get worse, then get better.  When you go back over time, you can see Black Plague, Bubonic Plague, Swine Flu, SARS, Spanish Flu, etc.... the one thing that they all have in common is that the human race persisted.  Sometimes we just need a little reminder that we're still a part of the animal kingdom and disease (regardless of how far modern medicine advances) is still a fact of life... and always will be.  My opinion is that a year from now we'll all be fighting off some nasty bugs that were forced to adapt based on our new obsession with antibacterials.  I expect that we can all expect a ferocious round of stomach bugs and common colds next winter.  
    • Hey, I agree.  But, we can't see in the bag (s).  Plus we can't see in the semi-trailers.  Not saying it's not true, though.  But, which media do we trust?  Again, there's been reports from the media about over flowing hospitals that turned not to be true.  So much to point that the media that's maybe trying to fool us, now refuses to name the hospitals.
    • Great news. I'm starting to hear about many recoveries. But if you were never infected, dont think you are immune. Be safe my friend.
    • https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/04/new-york-refrigerated-truck-bodies.html I don't know, man... any time that they start loading the bodies in semi-trailers I get a little concerned.   But that's just me.
