    Man! Coach Stokes, you should have done the RIGHT thing and kicked those four “party” boys off the team. You wanted the win so bad, you forgot about what is morally right and Carma bit you in the butt!
    Best wishes to Hobbs and Barben, truly hope they heal quickly. Best wishes to Dixie, hope you get a new coach with morals.
