  1. The coach is a scapegoat for whoever scheduled the game, the team that lost should never play teams that are completely out of their league. There’s a why sports have different divisions and leagues, and that is to insure that the games are competitive. Whoever let that team into that division is the one to blame.

  2. The coach should put in the back-ups and run plays that let more time expire. Don't be too aggressive in play calls. Let the clock run out in the final minute or two. Otherwise, tell your players to play hard with good sportsmanship. If you do those things there's nothing to apologize for. The suspensions and media attention just add further embarrassment to those who lost by such a lopsided score.

  3. Then make a mercy rule you snowflake fucks. What’s he supposed to do, tell his team to turn the ball over every time so they don’t score more points? Score was 92-4 they had the game one after the start of the second quarter. Blame the officiating

  4. Every game should end in a tie. All players should get the coveted "Participation" medal. Schools shouldn't give marks. Years ago I was on a hockey team that lost 35 out of 36 games. The game we won was by default because the other team didn't have enough players.

  5. What everyone seems to be missing here is that junior high/high school sports are supposed to be for FUN, not for demolishing your opponents by as much as you possibly can. It doesn't matter if the score is 100-0 or 51-50, a win's a win. In college or professional sports, that's fine. But in games that involve minors, the point of sports is to encourage teamwork, build up fitness, bond with your teammates, learn valuable life lessons, and beyond all else have fun. These priorities change once you graduate from high school, so kids should have the opportunity to enjoy them while they can. It's also essential that everyone has a chance to participate, not just the star player and a few others who are decent. Yes, you can win that way — but that's not the point. The point isn't to steal as many championships as you can at the expense of only using 2 or 3 of your players for a few minutes each game. And a game where your opponent is constantly scoring — or you are able to dunk again and again with no substantive challenge being offered — is not fun for anyone. This coach deserved what was coming to him. To think otherwise is to commit oneself to a one-dimesional mode of cognition.

  6. Then why didn't the officials stop the game at a certain point via ref or student body official. Suck it up, train harder or establish a rule that won't embarrass them as much if they are so concerned about embarrassment. What part did the other coach play in allowing his team to get to that point he deserves to be suspended to then, you think?!?

  7. Perhaps they were running up the score to enhance rankings. That's still no reason to suspend the coach. Perhaps this other team was that bad. I saw something about how they were only averaging about 31 ppg. I'd still like more back story before I get to judgemental.
