I know Campbell aint cheating or else they would be winning more games. McEachern is definitely cheatin. They beatin everyone by 30 points.Some games they are keeping close just to mess with teams. You watch. They gonna win it all and easy. It is just the way it is. SInce they won a championship it is easy for Omar to get people over there.
Speak up Poeple

When good people remain quiet, the bad ones will be heard. If you don't want McEachern to get away with breaking the rules, let the papers know and call Cobb HR. The schools themselves are too soft to ruffle any feathers. It is the parents who have the power to get things done. Speak up, people! Let's get back to focusing on the teams who are doing things the right way, not those wining by cheating.

Seriously! McEachern is hoping this goes away and that everyone will just ignore them cheating? Seriously? Anyone watching hem play can tell they are sandbagging it out there until the game gets too close. Seriously McEachern Coach? You don't think people can tell you are allowing your team to slack off so they don' beat teams by 60 and draw even more attention to themselves? Seriously? You think you will just stroll into the State tournament and then turn it on? Seriously? Are you hoping this investigation will blow over or go so slow that by the time it is over you will have another state title? Seriously? Do you that because nobody seems to care that what you are doing is okay? Seriously? Do you support what Omar Cooper did to get Caliya over to McEachern? You ave a chance to make this stop and still salvage your team's chances at a productive season. Why don't you do the right thing? This will not go away! You can't say you aren't aware of what occurred at this point. Don't let this be what people remember you for.

Don't count on any coaches to speak up for a few reasons. First, a good number of them are cheating also. Second, their principals won't let them because they are either cheating in another sport or they just don't want to throw their buddies under the bus. It is sad that school officials would actually tell their employees not to speak up when they know something is wrong. We have lost sight of why we have our children play sports, people. Aren't they supposed to learn how to play fair and act honorably when they are defeated? We learn our greatest lessons though losing or failing from time to time. You may be winning state titles now McEachern, but your children will fail later when the real world actually hands them consequences. Their high school State championship doesn't have to be the greatest accomplishment in their life.

Good job Campbell and Hillgrove. It is nice ot see teams being honest and working hard. So, have you both given up on first place since there is no possible way for anyone in your region to beat McEachern? How do you feel about that? Why aren't you doing anything to protect the integrity of your region? McEachern is just toying with everyone. Don't you want a chance to win a region title? If you don't do anyting or speak up, this will continue to go on because their recruits will be back next year and then they will recruit some more. It has been almost two weeks since a formal complaint was field with Cobb and the GHSA. Why don't you look into it and help bring some more attention to this cheating. It is happening in YOUR region!!! Unless you are cheating too??
