You're right, there have been some very talented teams come through Rock Hill. '05-'07, Rock Hill went 22-8 in the regular season, won an OVC title, and earned 2 playoff berths. Those were talented teams. I distinctly remember a conversation I had with a couple of seniors on the '07-'08 team - friends of mine - during which they warned me that there would be a staggering drop-off in talent after that year. Sure enough, the following year Rock Hill ran the table to go 0-10 and they haven't climbed out of the hole since. And I'm sorry, but I've seen the athletes that Rock Hill has been fielding on Friday nights and they don't have nearly as much talent as some other OVC schools. The talent gap between Rock Hill and Coal Grove, for example, is mind-boggling given the fact that these are adjacent districts and same-sized schools but that's just the way the cards have been delt. And Rock Hill has a lot of kids on the roster so you can't blame non-participation. The talent is just not there. The coaching staff has proved they can win when they have talent at their disposal. There's no doubt, losing breeds losing and turning it around will take work and determination. But it can been done. Consistent winning has happened at Rock Hill before and it can happen again.
Now, I want you to wrap your mind around this and think about it long and hard: the OVC began in 1954. That's 57 years. Rock Hill was a charter member of the conference. Since that time, Rock Hill has won 6 of the OVC titles - 6 out of 57. That's about 1 every decade. Rock Hill has the least number of conference wins and the smallest conference winning pct. of any of those charter members still in the conference. Do not blame one man or a few men for nearly 60 years of mediocrity. The coach won the OVC one time in the last decade - right about average. Knipp and his talented teams of the mid-2000s spoiled you folks and now that the talent has dipped, you've resorted back to your fickle heckling and jeering and criticism.
Those are the facts. They are ugly and inconvenient, but they are facts and if you ignore them you do yourself, the kids, the parents, the coaches, and the community a disservice.
Good luck to Rock Hill the rest of the year.
