Oh boy more basketball blunders in P-Town.

Amador:
Looks like Amador will be a doormat in EBAL this year. Wow... seems like the memo is out on the new coach. The ticker is running on how long Sax will last. Expect him to blow out or be let go before 16/17 season.

Foothill
Continued musical chairs... coaching foothill, no surprise... (portion removed)

Amador varsity beat San Ramon on January 9, 2015 by 4 points. This was with playing 3 to 4 sophomores on the court at most times. Everyone knows this is going to be a rebuilding year with so many seniors graduating from last years team. Go Dons!! They had a great game.

Begin rant:

It seems many high school coaches are a joke, they think that they are there for some grand purpose like winning the NBA or the World Cup. They lose sight of the fact that they are there for the Kids and not viscera versa. They tend to be narcissistic with their power,poorly trained on the intricacies of their games or must have been poorly treated in high school.

When as parents we see teams of highly skilled athletes play at a sub-par level it is disheartening.

I think both high schools athletic directors should perform survey monkey review of all of their coaches - one survey for the players and one for the students. (many parents pay their fair share, another topic 'why do rich families think it is ok not to?)

Currently too many crappy coaches wield too much power.

End rant;
