Geez! Looks like a lot of things are shaking up coaching wise in the area. Had heard a few rumors of possible openings but you all have brought a few new ones up. Will be interesting to see how things end up.

I agree with you, John. There does seem to be a down trend going on across the board over there. Itís hard to put a finger on the cause. The typical knee jerk response is the ďcrazy parent, lazy kidĒ syndrome that seems to be prevalent these days. Not sure if thatís all there is to it or if maybe thereís something more going on? I know there does seem to be a trend of pretty successful groups in the middle grades not panning out once they get to high school. Will be interesting to follow what happens with it, thatís for sure! Theyíve replaced a football and baseball coach this year so weíll have to see if they go for the trifecta.

100% agree Waterloo Wonder and Von. Bath needs to find a coach who has the energy and interest to build the program from 5th grade on up. Thatís the biggest complaint Iíve heard. A lot of frustration that the kids arenít being developed. No offseason skill/shooting program. Little to no open gym time for any other than varsity in the summer. Then add in that the MS teams are being taught a whole different philosophy than the varsity, then the JV running a completely different offense than the varsity, then the varsity looking lost on the court. Hard to watch and hard to understand what the coaches are trying to do there. Iíve noticed that the teams donít seem to get any better from the beginning of the season to the end. Truth be told, I think they actually look worse as the season goes on. Sounds like parents are going to the board if Allen doesnít resign first.

. Really?? Bath is getting rid of Allen? You sure about this?

Heck, Iím not sure of much of anything any more! I try to get to a few games when Iím in town and itís definitely not a good situation. Iím hearing that heís out. I think heís been there 5 years or so and that program is none the better for it.

You might be right, Von!

I know there are some area schools that bowed out of the tournament early and had pretty rough seasons, so wondered if there is any word out yet of coaches who may be either resigning their positions or are expected to be non-renewed by the administration?

I know my alma mater of Bath has certainly had a rough go the last few years and I am expecting a change there!
