Re: Girls High School Basketball Coach Fired After 100-0 Game
I think there's a difference between not trying and not pouring it on.
There are lessons of sportsmanship that can be taught in victory and defeat.
As a high school coach, more than anything you are a teacher. Apparantly this guy wasn't teaching the lessons in keeping with the school's mission and he was fired for it.
I'm curious as to what the "reward" is for the team that lost 100-0, other than the humiliation of getting crushed. Sure they've gained admiration for how they handled the defeat, and again it's good to know there are lessons that can be learned in getting thumped too.
But if you think that team "won" anything, wait until they have to face another opponent. An opponent who knows they just lost 100-0.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
