First, a word from Leslie M. Shoals:
One would have to ask "Why punish these kids for getting caught in Destin for doing what they are allowed to do in MSC?"
I remember a "surprise" drug dog brought in to MSHS one day, Only problem was that all the athletes that were drivers checked out before the "sweep". The administrators were so proud only a couple of under-freshmen were identified and "dealt with".
For those who believe the stories of grand test scores and graduation rates MSCS publish, you need to read the children's story, The Pied Piper, or the Emperor's New Clothes.
A senior that misses over 30 days in one semester with a failing grade miraculously aces a final exam and graduates?
Another senior stays in ISS most of the first semester, is failing and miraculously has all the credits when he turns 18 and is told he will get his diploma in the mail. No need to come back after Christmas break?
Employees having affairs, and then promoting one to the central office? Who believed Coach Lindsey when he said the principal had "administrative tenure"? There is no such thing - read the law.
Coaches recruiting - yes, another year ahead. Solution, lobby AHSAA to change the rules.
Teachers that can't teach - yep - math isn't that important in life after all.
Girls trying to out dress the teachers - after all, it's all about style.
Students know and are laughing at the teachers and administrators. Do they really think the kids don't know what they are doing? Nice, people. You're really preparing these kids. But, for what? They sure won't be real contenders for success in the REAL world.
Coach Lindsey trying to get the County Commissioners to raise taxes behind your back?
OH - You didn't know this?
Better keep watch on this one too. Does Coach need more money for recruiting and getting that coveted state championship since that is the number one goal of MSCS.

Some personal observations about the suspended Muscle Shoals players:
1. These players didn't just break team rules, they broke the law. If law enforcement had found them, they would have been arrested. Those who were 18 would have had their photo and name published.
2. A curfew of 1:00 a.m. for 16-18 year-olds is entirely too late. (We will happily publish comments from those who disagree.)
2. The suspended players are blaming the school for also suspending Coach Josh Fowler. It's not the school's fault, young men. It's mainly your fault (and Fowler's if he knew), and you should learn to take responsibility for your actions.
We'll update our previous post that those suspended were:
Is there anyone left on the team? We hear that junior varsity has been recruited. Does this not place undue pressure on them? Just a thought...
Please remember that we do not publish comments with profanity. To the person who wrote the comment on the UNA blog, please rewrite it, and we'll happily publish it.
