Yes. Tindol was a drunk and was fortunate enough to have good athletes at a time when Early was actually up in erollment and playing in 2a. There have been several teams from Early that could have made deep runs in the playoffs if they weren't in the district with Abilene Wylie and several other 3a teams.
what a joke. Tindol was a leader he came into Early and rewrote the script, he had a system that the kids bought into and he had a great coaching staff who actually knew what they were doing and he led the Early teams to the playoffs. I tell you what if a kid ever EVER acted like that one kid did for Early (#6) that Friday night in Clyde coach Luker would have made that kid drop all his pads and go sit his a$s in the stands. What a disrespectful kid, you have to realize you can't get ejected from all of the games. You are representing a school and everyone inside of a town. I have seen a few games this season and Friday night against Clyde was absolutely the worst team I have seen in Early since the '03 '04 teams. I mean how unmotivated, emotionless, and careless can one team play. No offense to the band but they were actually more aggressive than the football team with their drama filled half time show. (fun show BTW). No offense to Clyde but they are a subpar team and not any better than that, so you rank Early how you want. Next question that still lingers through out the community...why this Bowden guy? you have over 150+ applicants and you pick this guy who Early use to beat like a drum and has a 3-348 record before coming to Early (ok that stat may be off a little). But seriously what did yall even work on in practice last week? the Pistol formation where you run the counter over and over and you get blasted for a 3 yard loss? or the little Pistol screen pass that gained 0-1 yard every time?...btw was there even a defense out there? On the other note of you saying Bowden is teaching these kids something...what how to continuously get 15 yard personal fouls? ha. a complete embarrassment. with this final note...it sure is sad Early had a few groups of kids come through and really provide hope to this town, actually played with class, and were fun to watch (they actually scored and played defense), and just in the last two years Early is back to another 50 years of no playoffs...man what a sad day to be from Early..
Coach Luker was a good coach and wouldn't put up with any nonsense but his boss was like an ostrich who would put his head in the sand when dissention arose.
This years class at Early has some talent, but it's a shame that only one or two players can disrupt a whole teams chemistry with their selfish play. I think Coach Bowden is doing a good job and if you, "Go4two", are so fed up and disgruntled, then cross the river and jump on Bwds bandwagon. Or sit by wp1178, he was a Tindol worshipper too. Bowdens here and it's the job of the community to support him, I do. Just like I did Tindol when he was here. I didn't like what he did, but I sure as heck didn't get on a message board and bash him while he was here.
