Baldwin girls season ends one game short of state

Just a reminder of what you posted when Coach Toot resigned:

BHS boys basketball coaches resign together
You know sometimes the coaches don't always have the talent they need to compete the way they would like. They will always try differnt things to get a better outcome, but in the end it all comes down to talent on the floor. And right now the boys team has been down for the last couple of years. We are not like the private schools who can get the better talented kids. There is some talent coming in the future. I really don't think it would have mattered who was coaching these teams . they wouldn't have won like you expect them too. I think also this town needs to get behind the Girls team alot better. it seems like there always playing in a empty gym. They have had really good teams these last couple of years and some really good talent moving up to the high school next year. You never know with the full support of the community the sky is the limit for the girls high school basketball team the next few years. I just think parents need to let the coaches coach. and quit worring about who's playing and who's not . Coaches should always be playing the one's that give them the best chance to win. After all there job is to try to get their team to the state playoffs. and prepare the kids for the next level which is college, which ever level they choose. and not worry about which parent they ticked off this time.

Thomas returns Friday to Baldwin City

It was nice to see how busy the vendors were. This is always a great fundraiser for our local groups. The one that confused me was the BBQ stand. Is he fundraising for some group or was he allowed to make all of his profit for himself? I just thought that all the vending was for group fundraising. Maybe that was just when Thomas started coming.

Baldwin Bulldogs to play for championship of Baldwin Invitational

Who knew that when they fired all the people at the Lawrence Journal World they also changed the mascot of Baldwin. Remember when they used to be the Bulldogs?

BHS principal, boys basketball head coach hired

It seems to me that Torch was just warning the new coach of what is surely to come in his tenure as the new coach. Seemed appropriate when you look at the events that have taken place with our parents and coaches over the past couple of years.

Even though it was just one parent that sent out the email, only a couple of the other parents responded to Toot to let him know that they appreciated the job he was doing. The silence of the others said plenty.

1bulldog: if you think that Toot is not a very good coach because they only won 6 and 7 games the last couple of years then you way over estimate the talent pool that he had to work with. You would be hard pressed to find any one of those players that would put the blame on Coach Toot.

Kansas Highway Patrol investigates whether drugs contributed to double-fatality Saturday afternoon on K-10

You are an idiot and just lost any credibility for any post you have ever made.

This stoned loser took the life of a 5 year old that had his whole life in front of him. He nearly killed a 2 year old. He has changed the life of a family in a way that I hope no one of us has to experience. Can you imagine if one of your children was suddenly taken from you?

Knowing this, you are worried that the press said the accident could have been caused by a scumbag smoking weed? Cheech, you need to reevaluate your life and what you complain about. Stick to dogging Dorothy where you have your supporters.

BHS boys basketball coaches resign together

Here is the email that this parent sent to the other varsity parents:

Basically, I am deeply concerned about a few things going on with our BHS boy’s basketball program. The two most pressing issues for me revolve around program development and player development. I personally happen to think that we have had more talent and potential here at BHS over the last few years, and this year, than the six and seven win seasons show. And, clearly, we still have talented players at the 7th grade – 9th grade level right now that need to be developed properly.

I hate to say it, because I have been a staunch supporter of Coach Toot’s since he was hired, but I don’t feel he and his staff are effectively developing our players anymore, nor developing the program in such a way that it is capable of reaching its maximum potential. In short, I think it is time for a change. I realize that some of you are colleagues of Coach Toot’s, so I hope that you will understand that I still maintain a lot of respect for him, especially as a mentor to our kids, and someone who genuinely cares about them and has worked very hard for them. My concerns center only around basketball development and reaching our potential.

I am not entirely certain the best route to go about getting those in charge to agree, but I think the conversation needs to get underway. If any of you have any thoughts about this, please feel free to share.

He even went as far as letting people know that his dad should be the new head coach and mentor an up and coming coach for 3 years. This guy has harassed every coach that his kid has ever played for. I guess running the clock for Baker games makes you a basketball genius.

Slates set for spring elections

Where is Torch? BaldwinDad is going to take over your position as the most spiteful, ignorant, Baldwin hater if you don't start posting.
