94-1.

On Tuesday night in Colorado, Greeley's Frontier Academy defeated Justice High School by a score of 94-1. The score was 48-0 at halftime. Here's a quote from the winning coach:

“I’ve had 100 points scored on me before, and I think it’s important to respect the game and to respect your opponent,” Frontier Academy coach Nathan Buxman said. “We show the most respect for our opponents by continuing to play hard.”

Bullshit.

Nathan Buxman (I refuse to call him "Coach') is an idiot, a moron, and several other things that I won't mention on a fine website such as this one. And please, spare me the "I'm not going to tell my players not to play hard" load of garbage. Here's why.

A team learns nothing basketball-wise in humiliating a team by 93-points. Here's a novel idea - tell your second team to work on their offense, turn it over, work on their cuts and screens. Sure, play defense hard but for God's sake don't press. The fact is that any team, no matter how good, will be forced at some point (by a well coached team) to slow it down and run their offense. I hope that when this happens to Greeley's Frontier Academy they won't be able to do it because they were too busy making layups against inferior opponents to work on that aspect of their game.

My guess is that Buxman got a huge thrill out of burying a team 94-1. He was probably smiling inside as it helped him forget, at least for a moment, all those years of being being dominated by his wife and being picked on in grade school.

Respect? Nathan Buxman doesn't know the meaning of the word and should be ashamed of himself. His team learned absolutely nothing on Tuesday night about basketball, let alone sportsmanship or God forbid, life.

Pathetic.

  1. Belichick got hosed alright. At his 4th Super Bowl, right? Where was Shanahan? No idea but I do know this year he was losing to the Bills at home with the playoffs on the line, then getting fired. And replaced with a Belichick assistant.

    Interesting that my comments are disappearing...afraid of the truth?

  3. Shouldn't you be out beating some poor school by 93-points? LOL. You must be very proud of yourself.

    We lost several comments, by the way. Feel free to repost. Everyone gets to talk here.

Man, that chick beside me is smokin'.

Imagine waking up and seeing this on ESPN. I look like I'm having a stroke back there. Good Lord.
