THE STORY JUST KEEPS GETTING BETTER: COACH OF OVERSCORING TEAM IS FIRED


The saga of the team that ran up the score on another Christian Basketball team 100-0 has been fired after refusing to apologize for his team's poor sportsmanship in the debacle. Well, frankly he should be fired for not setting a better example to his players and as a representative for the school. I don't think it's the Christian thing to do to continue to beat your opponent when they are down. The score was 59-0 at half time, I don't think there was a chance for the other team to come back from that. Anyway good riddance to him, the school and players will be betrter off in the long run.

I agree the coach and administrator should have been fired. Why would you scheduled a special ed school to play a normal team?

Yes if the teams are unevenly matched they should be fired for arranging such a game.

In CT, a similiar law was passed at the highschool level, I think specifically for the Coach it most affected, Coach Cochran. If his team beat another team by more than 50 points the coach was penalized....wtf? That's crazy. If your team gets beat they need to practice more and play better, period.
