CHUCK $ 39 95 CAR STEHEO WINTHER MUSIC n7-13lhAv».So. By WAYNE CORNELL No one could pay me to be ahigh school coach. The man that heads a prep team has more worries than the old woman in the shoe. Take for example, atypical case of aclass Bbasketball coach in the immediate area. At the start of the basketball season last fall this coach had what looked like one of the better small school teams around. TTie squad had experience, talent and almost s.ll of the other ingredients of a winning season. Things looked rosey until arinl Christmas time. The team was winning, most of its games and-.cama within a couple of points d beiflng an opponent which was considered one of the beS B squaBs'fn the state. After, the holidays were over the picture changed. Several unexpected losses oceured and rumblings began to be heard. First of all there were several members of the squad that sat on the bench through most of the season. The parents of these players began to complain that "their boys" weren't getting the chance to show their talent. "The coach wasn't handling the team the way it should be handled." The coach in question was very likely one of the better mentors In the area but the talk continued and the members of the team found it very easy to blame their lack of success on the coach. When district tourney rolled around the B school squad was eliminated by a dark horse before the finals. Before the game was over the critics were analyzing all the mistakes that had been made and talking about a "new coach". What the critics couldn't see or didn't want to admit was thai certain members of the team decided that being a "hero" was the most important part of basketball rather than teamwork. This, among other things, and not the coach was responsible tor the losses. Moves were male to oust the coachbutthey were unsuccessful. In my opinion it would have served the community right If the man had pulled up stakes and moved away. All coaches liave to live with this sort of thing. In the case mentioned, the man was criticized when he was winning for not playing boys that would have left the contest in doubt. Then later daggers were thrown because the team lost. It was a cause of "damned If you do and damned If you don't." Next season !t will be that much harder for this man to put together a winning combination because of the doubt that has been imbedded in the minds of the returning players. Maybe a way could be invented for losing mentors to clear themselves In the eyes of the public. We could take a bed of red hot coals and make the person In question walk the length of it barefooted, Hhlsfeetdidn'tbllster, he could sip another year's contract. The men who risk their llvelyhood on the gridiron and hardwood floors of the nation's high schools deserve a medal. It keeps onhappenlngandlkeepcomplaining. "Sandbagging" is the name of the game and it is fast becoming a greater sport than racing at Meridian Speedway. Last Saturday evening at the Meridian oval a C class pilot timed in at 17.89 to rate front position In the main evenl. When the main got underway this driver evidently found that he had forgotten to put his choke in during She time (rials. He corrected the situation immediately and lo and behold, started turning race laps of 16.60, a full second better than his qualification run! Needless to say no one was able to catch the gentleman In question and he coasted home an oasy winner. Everyone likes a winner, at least If the win was fair and square. A stop watch wasn't needed to tell that the C victor was running an entirely different race. An official would have had to be blind, deaf and at home reading a mystery novel to be unable to read the writing on the wall. It would appear that the only way that the practice of sandbagging will ever be stopped is for the spectators to let the offending drivers know without a doubt that things aren't being done right. Tnwird the end of the A main last Saturday evening, Jim Dillon of Nampa spun No. 93 car :omlng out of the south turn en the Meridian oval One of the Boise hotshots, who always has an excuse for his mistakes, hit the crash wall during the meelee and later claimed that another iriver deliberately knocked him ait of contention. Ttie ar;;m!lon sounds good but if the truth be known |iii.i»*, JMS( didn't happen that way. Actually during the mlxup, the driver mentioned spin onto the infield pass.
