    Spb think u made a mistake i dont think he coached at ND in 1988 because if he is 29 that means he was a HC when he was 4 years old lol

  2. @NMbill – He’s not 29. He’s a 29-year vet, as in 29-year veteran coach. I guess I should clarify

    This coach is pathetic. I feel bad for my son and the rest of the young men play in for this idiot.

    I aggree freddie. This is very sad. I have seen better coaching with better results in grades 6-8. I feel sorry for the kids, many of which WILL NOT play for him again. We will see how they handle this one. Like big mac said..
