IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE BRADWELL INSTITUTE ALUMNUS, PARENTS, AND FANS!!!


First of All, I want the citizens of Hinesville, Georgia to know that I am a HUGE Bradwell Institute Football Fan, I have a lot of passion for the group of young men who play their hearts out for Bradwell Institute, and I support the young men who play Football for Bradwell in it’s entirety. But when do we say enough is enough? Remember two years ago, I asked this question, was Bradwell Institute a Contender or a Pretender? I took a lot of heat from other alleged supporters from Bradwell Institute. But I can’t seem to elude from the fact that the Bradwell Institute Tiger Football program we have now, is definitely not as good as the Bradwell Institute Football we use to have. It is understood that sometimes we may have a down year for rebuilding. But to have disappointing seasons after disappointing seasons is clearly unacceptable. It seems as if the Bradwell Institute Tigers Football Team does not have the will, and desire to win any longer under the present Head Coach.


Lets face it everyone. Its is definitely time for a change in the leadership of the Head Coach & Athletic Director's Position at Bradwell Institute. Coach Walsh has entered more than likely his 23rd year as a Head Coach in the Georgia Public School System, and for the past 16 seasons since he has been at Bradwell Institute as Head Football Coach & Athletic Director, he has won one Region Title, and his success in coaching has been from terrible to mediocre saying it at best. For the past six seasons, once again, the Bradwell Institute Tigers Football Season performance has been what I call discomfited, disconsolate, disappointing, defeated, dismal, and just plain done under the current cadre of Coaches. If it wasn't for the way GHSA now having the playoff system aligned, Bradwell Institute would "NEVER" make a post season playoff appearance.


It is a crying shame as to how terrible the program has become. The Bradwell Institute that we use to know prior to Coach Walsh coming to Bradwell Institute, was known for it’s great football program under previous Coaches. Other coaches in the Region (3-AAAAA) used to say that Bradwell Institute was the “Goliath of the Region”. Bradwell Institute should at the very least be 9-1 by the end of the this regular season. But as we all know, we no longer have that, and it seems that the winning pride that Bradwell Institute use to have, will be long gone as long as the current head Coach is still there. Since Coach Walsh has been at Bradwell Institute, his win loss statistics is at best .500 on an average. This is very unacceptable. How does he as a Coach tell a player to strive for excellence when he can’t achieve this himself. You have to lead by example.


In the Pre-Season, The Savannah Morning News Reported: “Class AAAA GLYNN ACADEMY travels to Hinesville to play Class AAAAA BRADWELL INSTITUTE. ... The Red Terrors lost, 27-20, to the Tigers last season. ... The Red Terrors finished 5-6 last season. ... The Tigers finished 6-5 overall and 4-3 in Region 3-AAAAA last season. It was the Tigers' worst region record since posting a 5-4 mark in 2005 when the Red Terrors were in the Region”.


Looking at the teams that they will play, the Bradwell Institute that I know should have beaten everyone in their Region very easily with exception to Camden County. Yes, the teams on the regular schedule should have been no match for the Bradwell Institute Tigers. The "ONLY" team that will give Bradwell Institute some serious competition in the region would have been the Camden County Wildcats. (Two -time defending Class AAAAA State Football Champions) As hard as these group of young men of the Bradwell Institute Tigers Football team has performed, they don’t deserve another season of mediocrity.


This is absolutely no personal attack against Coach Walsh as he appears to be a nice man. I hear that he cares for his players. I also heard of some of the good things he has done for the players outside of football as well. That is great for Coach Walsh. His compassion for the kids are duly noted, and his good unspoken deeds that he has done for the players will probably get him the Kingdom of Heaven, but it wont get him wins on the gridiron, the Football Scoreboard, the record books, and on the field. Coach Walsh is getting out witted, and out coached each, and every game by other opponent coaches, and now by every team they play against. The young men that play for Bradwell Institute are not responding to Coach Walsh method of coaching, and now it’s time for a change at the Coaching reigns.

Coach Walsh, Jeff Miller, and the Offensive Coordinator are by far the worst cadre Coaches in the history of Bradwell Institute. Among my colleagues, Bradwell Institute is the laughing stock of the entire State, and it is true as much as I hate to admit it, and as I speak so passionately about this, that under this current coaching staff, and coaching system, Bradwell Institute can't win a game against any team outside of Region 3-AAAAA and now, and more than likely, no team inside of Region 3-AAAAA under this current staff of underachieving coaches. There is absolutely no more excuses from these coaches because there are none. I may not be a coach, as other bloggers may say, but I sure as Hell know what 0-3 is, and I know what it's meant to be at 0-3.

The Bradwell Institute Tigers Football Team are at it's worst start since 2006. It is unacceptable to lose to Glynn Academy, and Charlton County. But to even lose your very first Region Game to a Bottom Rung Team that has beaten Bradwell Institute in Football only once years ago in it's school's history until now says a lot about Walsh as a Head Coach, and Athletic Director. The program at Savannah's A.E. Beach High School hasn't changed much, and it's program is so poorly supported, that Bradwell Institute Junior Varsity could beat the Beach Varsity Football Team, whom Bradwell Institute lost to this past Friday night at home. This should have been a very tough pill to swallow for the fans as they all booed during the game as Bradwell Institute played so poorly as a result of the coaching, and as of the poor coaching, it resulted in the Bradwell Institute Tigers Football Team acquiring another loss.

The time has come for the replacement of Coach Jim Walsh, and his cadre of Coaches, and the time is now!!!!!!!!!!

Being the bigger of the two schools I would suspect that this is not a talent issue. It's difficult for me to personally review the team as I have not attended a game yet this year, but I do agree that given the current and past records, Walsh needs some personal reflection. The whole situation gives one the impression that he could care less if they win or not. Is around simply for the position? Maybe it is a good time for him to consider stepping aside and giving this squad a chance?

you talk about how good he is to the players, isn't that want you would want as a parent IF your kids were there? it is not pro football where winning is the only thing. it's high school football. keep in mind in a sport like football it is important to have the base set up for the team starting with rec ball thru middle school football. with a military town you don't get that base, most move here from another area, so the base they have is not that solid in most cases. and when they do move to the area, say as a junior in high school, they are NOT allowed to play that year. they are required to sit out out one year. it's a rule that's there to prevent players in city's like Savannah from going school to school till they get on a team, but the military gets caught in the middle of it.

gacpl commented on Sunday, Sep 12, 2010 at 10:10 AM

off all the people who are always on here complaining about coach Walsh every year how many of you go to the football booster club meetings? and how many of you have kids that are on the football team?

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Sep 12, 2010 at 15:20 PM

I have grown to like you gacpl since I first encountered you here on these pages. You seem to possess a lot of insight into things.

As to your point re: a transitioning community which with Coach Walsh must deal, Coach Johnson managed quite well during his tenure with players from Fort Stewart and played for Championships and turned out good if not great teams when he Coached under the same circumstances.

I think SF3 and Hollaback are right, we neeed better leadership at the Coaching spot. You also make a good point about attending booster club meeting forums. Well, some maybe do and some maybe do not. My boys are out of the system. But THIS right here is on these blog pages IS A FORUM for discussion and SF3 us right on in his thinking regarding this matter.

Valdosta with Moody Air Force Base and Warner Robbins with Robbins Air Force Base turn out champions year after year. Why can't BI???

Walsh must go.

hollabackk commented on Sunday, Sep 12, 2010 at 17:48 PM

Why do some of you continue to make excuses for dismal coaching. I may not attend booster meetings but i buy game tickets, coupon books, boston butts, sweatshirts,etc. I support B.I. football win or lose but im ready to see some wins now.

The military excuse, feeder system excuse,etc is old now. Kids want to play for a winning program. I have no doubt there are young men at B.I. who want to play football right now but don't because the dont want to play in a losing program.

This program needs a shot in the arm. We need a coach who is fired up about teaching football to a fired up group of young men. Excitement needs to be brought back. Olvey field needs to be packed full on friday nights again.

All of you B.I./Walsh supporters cant tell me you dont want that....

HMJC commented on Monday, Sep 13, 2010 at 08:59 AM

Something is definetely wrong there with the fundmentals, the backs are not blocking, they are also not hitting the hole full speed. I watched holes open up in the line but either a linebacker was unaccounted for or a back that was not carrying the ball did not pick up a block. Very little misdirection and the hand offs are not fluid. Not sure if it is different in practice but I know what I saw during the game. The same two plays were always ran on first down for the most part. You cannot win ball games like that. I was glad to see passing mind you but the back field to me does not seem to understand thier responsibilty for blocking if they are not carrying the ball. It would be nice as well if Walsh remembered that it is ok to run the ball outside as well....I don't know at this point but thet need to to something......

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Sep 13, 2010 at 10:57 AM

GACPL,

In response to you comment. you are really making excuses for the Coaches unsuccessful methods of coaching. The citizens, fans, parents, and alumni are sick and tired of the excuses. We no longer want to hear it. At of this day and time, all we want is a change in the entire leadership and coaching staff at Bradwell Institute. If you like them so much, go find them another place to coach. The majority here in this town want them all gone after this season. No doubt about it.

Now personally, I wish no ill will towards any of the Coaches. They can remain as a teacher. Let them teach Physical Education, Health, or any other course curriculum. But as far as being any type of Coaching at Bradwell Institute, the answer is HECK NO!!!!!! They all have to go. Like I said, these great group of young men that play their hearts out for Bradwell Institute deserve better. In case you don't know, last year in the State Of Georgia, more than 35 Head Football Coaches were Fired or resigned due to unsatisfactory game performance, and the majority of them do not have the tenure, and year that Walsh have in the School System.

Example: Rick Tomberlin, Former Head Football Coach, and Athletic Director Of the Valdosta Wildcats was fired after four seasons at Valdosta High School for mediocre seasons, and his winning performance there in the State's Toughest Region, (Region 1-AAAAA) was better than Coach Jim Walsh Jr's season at Bradwell Institute percentage wise where Bradwell Institute plays in the State's weakest Region. (Region 3-AAAAA)

Honestly Walsh, and his cadre of football coaches have been looked over, and have been given a pass for may years, should have been replaced a very long time ago, with a Head Football Coach with a proven, positive track record for winning. I waited until two years ago before I began to spoke out about it. If they are not shameful of last week's lost to Region 3-AAAAA Savannah's A.E. Beach High School here at Olvey Field, (A team that Bradwell Institute Junior Varsity could beat) I am embarrassed, and shame for the Coaches.

Lets just stop with the excuses GACPL. "Excuses are for weak and incompetent people that specializes in capables of nothingness".

Right now Coach Jim Walsh Jr, and his cadre of coaches are an excuse to the Bradwell Institute Football Program for their lack of success on the gridiron.

GACPL You will eventually see the financial support will now soon begin to decrease as the losses began to accumulate.

Greetings Jimmy "Mack" Darsey,

"Valdosta with Moody Air Force Base and Warner Robbins with Robbins Air Force Base turn out champions year after year. Why can't BI???"

"Walsh must go".

You are exactly right. Npw either he gracefully steps down, or we move into measures to force him out.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Sep 13, 2010 at 11:44 AM

Greetings Hollabackk,

In response to your comment, people who are close to Walsh (maybe GACPL) are trying to beat a dead horse by defending him. But the majority of the citizens here in Hinesville fee the exact way we feel.

I too support the program by purchasing food, and season tickets to attend the game. I also go to the away games to support them. I also was going to donate money to the program but at this point, why? Why would I waste my hard earn money to a program where a Coach that does not have the desire to win games. It makes me so angry to see this constant unchanging process of unsuccessful seasons under Walsh. No one will waste or invest their hard earn money into a dismal program bottom line. I am tired of it, and now they all have to go.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Sep 13, 2010 at 11:51 AM

Greetings HJMC,

In response to your comment, what is wrong, is that I believe that the players may be giving up under Walsh, and his cadre of coaches. Don't be surprise if they say that after this season is over, they no-longer want to play anymore for Walsh, and the other coaches. I have a feeling that this is where it is heading.

HMJC commented on Monday, Sep 13, 2010 at 12:47 PM

If you remember earlier this month I expressed that my own son was feeling that very same way.....hope this turns around, they need something and someone to believe in

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Sep 13, 2010 at 13:09 PM

Yes I do remember you mentioning that a few weeks ago. Walsh, and his entire cadre of coaches has to go after this is season is over. Just salvage what we can this season, and after this, we have to get him replaced with a younger coach who can relate to the players, and that have a proven track record for winning. They should have never forced Coach Ron Beachum out. We would have NEVER been in this position that we are in.

BI94 commented on Tuesday, Sep 14, 2010 at 23:10 PM

There are so many things that I could say to those who post about Bradwell football and Coach Walsh. But, there are just a few I will mention here. First, we have lost to Beach. Actually, it was under Clifford Johnson, one of Bradwell's best coaches ever. Second, if you really want to get something done, you can't hide behind a user name on a blog. Third, there are many things "broken" with our school system and community that affect everything, including football. Fourth, if you notice, things changed for the worse when the high school was divided. We don't have community support, involvement, or money to support two high schools.

Lastly, and most importantly, shame on you Truth31313 and SportsFan31313 for stooping to making comments about the coach and a board member. Truth31313, even if the word "girlfriend" was not meant the way it was taken by SportsFan31313, the comment was inappropriate. To spread such rumors on a public forum that could be (and probably is) accessed by students of the school is uncalled for and juvenile. I somehow doubt that you know either of them personally and need to keep such opinions to yourself.

SportsFan31313 commented on Wednesday, Sep 15, 2010 at 11:33 AM

Greetings BI94,

You say they are so many things that you could say to those who post about Bradwell Football and Coach Walsh.

Well great. I encourage you to do so. BI94, your focus is all mixed up here. Your concerns should not be who I am, but to help fix the current problem that exist at Bradwell Institute, and the Football program. That is the issue here, and what I am so passionately speaking about. You say that Clifford Johnson is one of Bradwell Coaches ever, but I must further say that Coach Hokey Jackson was the greatest Coach that ever Coached Bradwell Institute.

Now Coach Clifford Johnson was a great Coach, and I do agree with you, and that his success is duly noted. But there was also another one that was great, and although his time was short at Bradwell Institute, he is responsible for his successful seasons as well at Bradwell Institute.

That was Coach Ron Beachum. Since you are giving out credits to Coaches, lets put it out there, and give it to them all as well. BI94, I know my stats when it comes to Bradwell Institute Football. My question is do you honestly believe that the current status of the program is great under Coach Walsh? Please answer that question. Next, do you believe that Coach Walsh is great for the program at Bradwell Institute? I mean he has been there going on his 17th year there. Do you believe in your heart that he has taken Bradwell Institute to a higher playing level? To a team of contention?

Continued.....

SportsFan31313 commented on Wednesday, Sep 15, 2010 at 11:34 AM

Continued.....

BI94, my question to you is how can all of us be so wrong, and you are so right? Please tell me if Coach Walsh is good for the program there at Bradwell Institute, what has he done to make the program better? For two years, I have analyzed and spoken out about the program. If I am so wrong about what I have said, then prove me wrong. I will challenge you to that.

Continued....
Now if you are not one to join in to fix the problem by replacing Walsh, then kindly do us all a favor by staying off our blogs. Apparently you are not a solution to this on going problem that exist there at Bradwell Institute, but probably part of the problem. Maybe you are complacent with mediocrity along with Walsh. We are not.

You continue to mention the same old tired excuses as the having two schools being there as the reason why Bradwell Institute Football has gotten worse. Well let me address that for you if you don't mind.

Walsh went 10-2 in 1996, 10-2 in 1997, and had obtained one Region Title at Bradwell Institute "AFTER" Liberty County High had been built, and Liberty County was actively in session with a Football program. Your excuse is not only weak but a poor excuse, and untrue. You went on to mention also that Bradwell Institute don't have community involvement, support, money to support two schools. Again, you are being a bit disingenuous when you say things like that. I have supported Bradwell Institute Football Program, and many others have as well. But as I have mentioned earlier on my other blogs, (oh by the way, have you read any) that no one would continue to invest any financial support to a program that is dismal which is being ran by the current Coach.

It would be foolish to continue to do so. The community does not get involved because simply, Bradwell Institute Football is not winning. You should count your blessings that we are still buying season tickets.

Last, about me making comments, I was addressing Truth31313 comments to me. there is absolutely no shame on myself or Truth31313's part. Like I said, if that is true that Walsh is dating a BOE member, then she would have to recuse herself if such actions are brought forth to replace Walsh. Now I am not a Public Servant. When you are a public servant, then what you do out there is carefully scrutinized. Don't want to be placed out there, then be careful and mindful what you are doing. If you have read it correctly, Truth31313 was speaking about getting rid of Walsh may be difficult because he is dating a BOE member. That's all that was said about that. So again, there is absolutely no shame on my part or Truth31313's part.

SportsFan31313 commented on Wednesday, Sep 15, 2010 at 11:35 AM

Continued.....

I will tell you that is shame, and a crying shame as that. It's the consecutive years of terrible season after terrible seasons that Bradwell Institute football has become since Walsh has been present. Bradwell Institute has now become a team that every team want to have on their schedule for their Homecoming. They will be guaranteed a win. It seems as if the only two things we can agree on is that, Coach Clifford Johnson was a great Coach, and that beat beat Bradwell institute that last year that Coach Johnson Coached at Bradwell Institute. But I still remain correct as to the Beach football program, and Bradwell Institute losing to them.

In conclusion BI94, this is a blog. I can comment on whoever, and whatever I choose to talk about. I am talking about Bradwell Institute Football Program. If you don't like what I have to say, then don't read my blogs. Your inability to carefully read, and comprehend my comments are juvenile. maybe you should keep your comments to yourself until such time you can relate.

But graciously I will say BI94, thank you for your comments....

SportsFan31313 commented on Wednesday, Sep 15, 2010 at 11:43 AM

I aoplogize for my typos:

"It seems as if the only two things we can agree on is that, Coach Clifford Johnson was a great Coach, and that beat beat Bradwell institute that last year that Coach Johnson Coached at Bradwell Institute."

It should have stated:

It seems as if the only two things that we can agree on is this: Coach Clifford Johnson was a great Coach, and that Savannah's A.E. Beach High School beat Bradwell institute the last year Coach Johnson Coached at Bradwell Institute prior to his retirement.

BI94 commented on Wednesday, Sep 15, 2010 at 21:44 PM

In response to my lack of focus and my being part of the problem, I would like to ask you how many meetings you have had with the coach, principal, board members, or the entire board. We have met with Walsh, our board member, and the principal about the situation. My point about blogging is that it will do absolutely no good whatsoever if you don't back it up with actions. I never said in what I posted that leadership doesn't need to change. I don't know if that's part of the answer or not, but I do know that it is only the tip of the iceburg. I taught at one of the high schools in Liberty County for 3 years and have a little inside knowledge of the problems that lie beneath the surface. I also know that another head coach with a proven history of winning would be next to impossible to hire in our school system with the lack of support that the football program receives. There are things that were promised to Walsh when he came all those years ago that he is still waiting to come to fruition. Also, I know Bradwell's history (all aspects of it) better than most. My family has attended the school and football games for many years. My grandparents were alumni of Bradwell, my father is, and my brothers and I are as well. I can promise you that my opinions do not stem from a lack of knowledge of Bradwell. And, I know that Coach Jackson was a great coach. My best friend's father growing up told me many stories about playing for him.

I am really glad that people such as yourself are at least showing some interest in improving the situation, but just take time to consider what might be the best way to go about it. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that posting rumors about the personal life of the coach is NOT the way. All I ask is that if you feel that it needs to be investigated, go through the proper channels and don't help someone facilitate rumors about people, that I can almost guarantee you are not true.

Sincerely, thanks for your passionate interest in Bradwell football and, hopefully, the school in general.

Greetings BI94,

You did'nt read my comment in it's entirety because you have taken things out of context. You stated below:

"In response to my lack of focus and my being part of the problem,"

You see right there. You started off wrong from the beginning. This is what I said.

"Apparently you are not a solution to this on going problem that exist there at Bradwell Institute, but probably part of the problem".

Now I didn't make this a fact that you are part of the problem. The key word is PROBABLY!!!

As far as me attending meetings, your answer is no. Myself and other supporters and fans are working people here in this State, and more than likely don't have time to attend meetings. But here is a question for you. You are a teacher correct? If a teacher is not performing to an acceptable level in the classroom and students are failing, should the parent step in and take over the class? No things are not handled like that. If a teacher is not performing to acceptable level, that teacher is removed.

Greetings to all,

Let's all stay focused on the problem at hand. IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE WITH B.I. FOOTBALL. If any of you read my previous blogs or 31313's we saw this coming months ago. Let me say first that i am not hiding in my blogs. I have said how i support B.I. to the best of my ability as a single father.

I do agree with 31313 about supporting a losing program. No one wants to do that and i have been in those stands home and away for years. I can say now that i will not be attending anymore B.I. games this year. After the scrimmage and the first two games i have seen enough. I will probably attend the Camden game but that will be it. I have gotten more pleasure watching the highschool games on ESPN,ESPN2,ESPNU and CSS. (Carver-Columbus #1 in AA VS Lagrange #8 in AAA on ESPN2 tonite at 8:00 by the way)

To all those who feel that myself and 31313 need to attend meetings with boosters,fans, BOE, etc. Our presense at a meeting would not change the fact that B.I. is losing. The only people who need to be in a meeting are the ones who have the power to hire and fire."The powers that be"know whats going on with the program, they don't need anyone on this blog to bring it to there attention,beleive me they here the grumbles. I love the Denver Broncos and Mike Shannahan but i was not at the meeting when they fired his a**. They did not ask me for my input. They just felt it was time for a change.

I know the history of B.I. football starting with Coach Johnson. The program has had its ups and downs through the years but its been down for a while now and it has to end. I brought up Coach Beachum in one of my previous blogs and his name seems to always pop up. I brought him up because he was forced out.(The good ole boy network runs more than politics in this town) I DO NOT want him as the head coach of B.I. I would love to have him run the defense but NOT the head coach.

I would like to see B.I. get a young up and coming coach. Someone from a smaller school who is having success at that level and wants to take the challenge of AAAAA. Just no one who is local.

I hope all you enjoy your game tonite.

SportsFan31313 commented on Friday, Sep 17, 2010 at 14:47 PM

Greetings Hollabackk,

Thank you for your comments. You are absolutely 100% correct. I just hope that others read this particular comment that you have just written, and embrace it.

I have had it. There is just no more room here for Walsh being Head Coach, and Athletic Director at Bradwell Institute any longer. Personally, I have nothing against Walsh, but this is Business.

Like any company, if you are the CEO, if your are not performing well and the company is constantly losing it's profits year after year, the CEO is replaced. Walsh is the CEO of the Athletic Department, and he performed terribly over several years. He has to go.

Walsh applied, and was given this job with the expectation to build a great athletic program. However; all we got was the worst overall stats in the history of Bradwell Institute.

Walsh has the tools (players) to win, and he does not know what to do with it. He has speed ( #10) one of the fastest players in the State. He has the size, he has the strength. However; he seems as if he does not know what to do with the talent.

No one likes failure Hollabackk, and there will be times that we fail at thing. You get back into it and you grind until you win. If you can't achieve that, then this may not be for you, and you should step down, and do something else for a change.

When you are in a position, and you become an attraction for unsuccessful over and over and over again, a prudent person would be unselfish, step down from his position, and allow someone else to take over the reigns for the better of the team.

SportsFan31313,
If your going to sit here and pretty much talk trash about the coaching staff of a HIGH SCHOOL football team, and not reveal who you are, that makes you a coward. Have you ever even played in an high school football game? Have you ever been around a program and actually see how much work is put into coaching and how much time coaches spend going over film and strategies? If the answer to these questions is no, then you need to ask yourself are you really in a good position to dictate somone's career. I have been a faithful fan of Bradwell for many many years, and being a former coach in the state of Ga. I know exactly how much work and time is put into a football program. A good high school program is not all about winning, its about developing young men attitudes and teaching life long lessons, and if your going to just sit there like a coward and hide behind some user name and not reveal yourself well then you go ahead and do that, that just makes you lower then the spit I wipe off my shoe after a long day of work. What if someone started rumors about you and your personal life, how do you think your wife or husband or someone close would feel about these allegations. You probably played high school football and now you think your better than what you were and you think your a know it all about the game and what needs to happen. How about you go coach big shot if you can do a better job than do it. Now stop being a coward and reveal who your are, oh wait you wont do that because you are and always will be a yellow coward

bravefan,

There is no need for you to conduct personal attacks against SF3. He has presented a strong,knowledgeable and respectful debate regarding the replacement of Coach Walsh. It is his personal right as a U.S. citizen not to disclose who he is on this sight. Additionally, anyone working within the public eye will be subject to scrutiny, some good, some bad. How about debating him from your point of view why Coach Walsh should stay?

Greetings Bravefan,

Well to answer your questions, they are yes answers. As far as being a coward, nothing could be farther from your name calling. It appears to be that the best that you along with a very few others can say is why am I not revealing myself to you? What in the HECK that have to do with how the Coaching actually is at Bradwell Institute? It is definitely apparent that you along with a very few others have not taken the time to read my blogs, and read the comments on them.

If you did, you would not be here trying to evade the subject at hand, which is about Coach Walsh, and the dismal football program. Never in my entire life have I have seen the few such as yourself that is making excuses for failure. Please answer that question. It is one thing for me to actually say things about Walsh, and the Bradwell Institute Football Program and it is inaccurate. But it is definitely not. If I am not accurate about the things that I post here on the blogs, then I challenge you along with your bandwagon jumpers of poor excuse makers to correct me on it.

Now you are correct about what a good coach does. Since you are a fan (by your own admission) and not a supporter, how in heck would you know what Walsh is doing to promote to the players that you are talking about? I am a very proud graduate of Bradwell Institute. Are you? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see even from the outside that Bradwell Institute has a lot of problems in the football program. Maybe you need one to help you along the trail, but I am quite sure that no one else does.

As far as rumors about someone's personal life, I have not done so, and I suggest that you read my blogs before you go there, as evident that you have not. It seems to me that you you are going around all half cocked piggyback riding off of someone's comments, and then you decided to put your one cent worth of opinion in off of theirs.

Do us all a favor. Speak on behalf of yourself, and know what you are talking about before you decided to comment. You sound like more like the person that could never make it in life by your small talk, and worthless comments....

But even people with the persona such as yourself have the right to comment, and with that being said, thank you for your comments.

"WALSH MUST GO"!!!!!!

Greetings Funkentelecky,

Thank you for your input. You have summed up this entire blog correctly in just four lines. The very minute amount that has commented on my blog seem not to get it. All that they want to know is who I am, instead of them speaking on the subject at hand. It is obvious that what I am saying is true, and they don;t know what to say about it or refute what I say. It's because I am correct and the truth hurts sometimes.

Bradwell Institute won their first last night in a nail biter 21-17 over Johnson with a few seconds left on the clock. Johnson's defense dominated Bradwell offense the majority of the game. That is why I always say that "Defense" wins games. But a win is a win, and I can accept that. Congratulations Bradwell Institute Tigers.

Bradwell Institute have a HUGE game at home this Friday (September 24, 2010) against Perennial Power House Camden County. I can only hope that they (Bradwell Institute) don't allow Camden County to score 60 points or more on them on their home field.

Folks,
Several comments made on this blog were inappropriate. If they continue, I will kill the blog entirely because, frankly, I do not have time to monitor what should be a good-natured discussion of such topics.
Also remember that high school athletics is not primarily about fan expectations it is to teach our young people about loyalty, consistency, sportsmanship, etc. It is also used to keep some students in school. Everyone involved in the program, from fans, to coaches, to students, faculty and parents are responsible for fostering a winning spirit, no matter the results of games.

Greetings Ms Watkins,

If you are speaking of me, then I would like to say this:

I utilize this blog to speak freely, and accurately about the The Bradwell Institute Football program. Nothing other that. I do at times make comments on other blogs from time to time. However; I am not the person you should be directing this to. If you choose to censure me for speaking the truth, then that is your decision to do so. I assume that this is your News Paper, and Web Site I guess. I could just go to another Newspaper Site, and make my blogs nation wide. But if you have read any of my Blogs, it is not I with the personal attacks.

I am not on here making personal attacks on anyone, and I expect the same regarding myself. I will not tolerate anyone making personal attacks on me either simply because I report, and speak my opinion about the status Of the Bradwell Institute Program. I have been blogging on this site for at the very least 2 or more years now, and I will continue my Blogs as such speaking accurate information, and I will not allow anyone to make idle threats to censure me because I am on here speaking my opinion respectfully, and accurately to the citizens of Hinesville. This is my 1st Amendment Right as is yours.

If your comment was not meant for me, then I sincerely apologize. But if it was, then now you know where I stand.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Sep 20, 2010 at 11:01 AM

P Watkins,

I apologize for the Ms. Watkins. I thought that you were a female prior to checking your profile.

Well Mr. Watkins,

I guess you are clueless as to what the Sports program is about in it's entirety. What you are speaking of is all well, and good for a small portion.

This athletic program is Big Business: It is about revenue as well that it brings, and to make it a better athletic program than it is at this very moment. Do not think for one minute that it is only what you are speaking of. If you don't know what it is about in it's entirety, all you have to do is ask, and we can inform you as such.

Congratulations for the win B.I.

No disrespect to the Savannah teams but these are the games you should win every year.

SportsFan31313 commented on Thursday, Sep 23, 2010 at 15:13 PM

You are exactly correct Hollabackk. But as you know, Bradwell Institute is currently struggling even to win that those as well. But however you look at it, a win is a win. So now Bradwell is 1-3 instead of 0-4. Lets just see what happens tomorrow night. can Bradwell Institute stop camden County from scoring 60 to 70 point on them? The score may very likely be 50-0 by half time.
