There will either be a season or there wont be. There will not be a shortened season. If the Governor is not comfortable gathering until there is a cure or a vaccine, if there is not one that is well distributed in August or September, there will not be one in October either. Anyone who feels like there is going to be sports this calendar year is not listening to what Dewine is saying.

As for the practices at Coffman, I have no dog in the fight but I have seen the video and talked to people in the central office.
They were gathered with 20 current players on the 2020 Rocks Football team.
They were run by at least three adults, one was a parent volunteer for the varsity team, another is known as the Cookie Monster (I couldnt make this up if I wanted to)
Current wide receiver (senior to be) videoed the practice and posted it, this video was sent to central office.
They had been happening during the shutdown. Some people got word of them, and started to go watch, then video, then more did the same. There were several videos. I know that central office and OHSAA were both contacted and involved. This is not innuendo.

Before Harry gets mad and defensive, dont shoot the messenger.

Not mad or defensive , it's not my team . You as a source ? No comment . No dog in the fight ? You are pretty constant critic so what would it look like if you did ? You say you are the messenger ? Who gave you this message? Why are you compelled to give this message?

Ill try to answer your questions. If you have any more just shoot them out and Ill be happy to answer them. Ill try and be as direct as possible.

Regarding me as a source: You can take me as a source or not. It doesnt matter to me. I never thought I was 'outing' anyone. Im just giving facts as I have seen them and talked to administrators. I also know the kids and the adults involved, so I can identify them based on the videos.

Regarding having a dog in the fight: I have no dog in the fight. I havent been to critical lately. at least I cant remember being so. I have many friends involved with Coffman football. But that doesnt hide the reality of the culture of their program. Thats not being critical, thats being factual.

Regarding who gave me the message: I saw the videos. I think I have seen five different ones. Some from players on the team who were there and are seen in the videos. Some from Dublin community members who were concerned that this was happening. I also talked to Dublin City Schools Administration. Thats who I suppose 'gave me' the information. I dont think any of it was hidden, or if it was, it was not hidden well.

Regarding why am I compelled to give the message: I have nothing else to do right now and I was reading this thread, and you were asking about details of these videos, and I think trying to discredit those who were posting about this. You were wanting facts. I can still get all the videos so if you want them just let me know. They have been posted publicly. The adults in the videos were posted publicly, so just let me know Ill get them to you.

So you see the videos and call Dublin City schools? Talked to Dublin City schools administration ? Why ? Concerned? You live here? I don't need or want anything from you certainly . But I am curious as to what your 'reality " of what the culture of the program is. This certainly seems personal and emotional for you .

1. I saw the videos. I can get them to you if you want them. Just PM me an email and I’ll be happy to get them to you.
2.i talked to Dublin city school administration because I am related to one of them
3. I live in north Columbus not Dublin. I follow Columbus high school football pretty closely and know most of the coaches and administrators around. I have held many jobs in several school districts but am not retired.
4. Am I concerned? I don’t think to a high level? I haven’t been on yappi in a long time but got on today, saw your “knowledge” of the situation and responded, thinking I would add facts to it. I knew of this I think two weeks ago but didn’t really think of yappi? I’m not putting anyone. I just was browsing today.
5. I have zero personal interest and an unemotional. I’ll respond to any questions with facts. I think that makes me unemotional?
6. Maybe I should not have said state of the culture of Coffman football. Maybe it is something you don’t recognize or understand.
But I will say more and more Dublin administrators have voiced concerns over the culture of Coffman football. And I’m guessing-maybe someone has told me?-that this culture will not continue much longer.

that being said. There are other issues at the moment with sports as a whole and the corona virus

Groveport lost it's coach and graduated a bunch, don't see them being at the same level as last year .
They’ll be better than ppl think. They hired within the staff. The only key losses for Groveport is they lose their whole D line. They return their best 2 RBs and they’ll have a better QB this year . Return majority of the O line and return all but 1 in the secondary.

Oh so your just related to someone , sure. OK . Zero personal interest but called Dublin City schools and have bene critical of Coffman many times I have seen and read. So stop with the bullchit. Dublin administrators don't like what about the culture? You can say it , we're all adults here . What about the culture do the administrators feel is bad? What won't continue? Feel free to talk about it here. You have said a lot here, , seem to really care , so just tell us what it is people like your 'relative" don't like ? I am sure you won't.

O-Line majority? I see big losses on the D-Line and LB . Schedule is ridiculously easy to start , then they play Coffman in week 5 and won't beat them . But I suppose it's possible to go 8-2 { Pick C the other loss} ? I would guess 7-3 at best though and with the weaker schedule ? Harbins may be a problem .

Dude. I’m really not that invested. If it makes you feel better to think I’m incorrect or emotional or critical or whatever, then think that. Good for you. If you write long diatribes about hiow this is wrong, and that helps you believe it that’s great for you! We all need that optimism!

No diatribe, but you come here and posted for a reason and infer that the culture is 'bad" so instead of letting that just sit here, , tell us what your 'relative" or other administrators feel is bad about the culture? You imply it is a bad culture and something is wrong , so just tell us what you think is bad. Really weak to come here and drop this innuendo and then just let it hang in the air. What is the problem with the culture ?

If you look at the responses to the tweets it appears that the father of the kid who just committed to WVU is acknowledging that he was running a workout. And it also seems like they are blaming a kid from another Dublin school for posting the videos or sharing because he was mad that the Coffman kids ran him off their field. Or maybe I’m reading way too much into what’s being said...but I did go down the rabbit hole of reading responses to the Lacrosse Columbus tweets and it seems like that’s what was being said.

Ok. You are right. The culture is great. And everyone thinks so. Write long drawn out evaluations on yappi. And it will be even better. And more people will believe that! (Plot twist, bud, they won’t)

forget I brought up culture. I mean that. You see it your way. That’s great. It’ll help you feel better.

I really was just trying to give insight on the practices that had been happening. No more no less.

Regardless I’m just ticked that the rules are being interpreted differently from district to district. Pickerington schools have locked up all facilities and have directed coaches to tell their kids to stay away from all school property. They’re runnings kids off who are by themselves on a practice field running sprints, shooting lacrosse, taking BP, or kicking soccer balls.
Meanwhile other districts in central Ohio (I heard Hilliard is one too...I’m sure there are more) are leaving their stadiums and tracks open and are not prohibiting kids from working out on their own as long as they’re following social distancing guidelines.

he was one of the parents running the workouts. There were other adults. Some were volunteer coaches for the varsity. They had access to Coffman facility and football equipment

Kids from other schools videoed some of the workouts

The most profound post-and the one that forced administration and OHSAA to respond-was posted by a senior to be Coffman receiver

Reading responses to something like this needs to be taken with a grain of salt . There is and has been cases of Dublin kids and adults for that matter showing some disdain for lack of a better term for Coffman in general . Been prevalent for a long while .

Let me know if you want the videos and then we can eliminate any grain of salt.

I see at worst a 7-3 season. The only team I see them losing to forsure is Pick Central. Coffman is a toss up and maybe the burg but they pretty much lose a lot...

So what was the response and what is the big problem with the culture? You seem to know a lot about this but won't share ? Kids from other schools like just stopping by Coffman? Who knew .

I dropped the culture comment. Nothing I will say will make you feel different. Agree to disagree. We’re good. The culture of Coffman football is great and everyone is happy with it. We’re good.

yes opposing kids. Who knew.

But I’ll say this again-and imagine I’m saying it slower-the most troubling evidence of this-and the post that most clearly indicated all involved-was by a current player at Dublin Coffman high school

again. If we want to eliminate any grain of salt or innuendo or anything like that just pm me an email and I’ll send the videos right away.

Again-imagine I’m saying this slow-I’ll date anything I have with you.

Coffman isn't a toss-up . Will it be 51-7 like it was in Leveon Bell's Senior year? NO . But Coffman has more back and more overall top talent . More consistent . Will be a excellent running team with one of Ohio's best few Running backs and will probably put up similar numbers that New Albany did last year? Now 2021 Coffman will be a major rebuild but this year? GPM isn't good enough to beat them or the game to be a tossup.

So you won't answer my questions ? I don't care about the video or need to see any videos. Weak to imply the culture is bad and use hearsay evidence to claim that many in the Administration are 'Concerned " about it and then not say what concerns them .

Also , making " ME" feel differently isn't the issue or shouldn't be , but you can't just come here , drop the culture is bad bomb , say that Administrators are not happy with the 'culture" and then just say never mind when asked what they think is bad. It's weak sauce , but I already knew that about you .

Yea. I backtracked.
The culture is great. I d never heard anyone involved with Coffman football say different. Not an administrator. Not a player. Not a parent. Not a community member. Not even(uh oh) current assistant coaches. None of them sees any problems with the culture. And neither do I. I’m officially backtracking.

So all those people see a problem . But your too much of wimp to say what all these people tell you what they see as a problem? Extreme case of being weak . What are you afraid of ?

I can not speak about the culture of the Coffman program but the results over the last 20 years are:
* 174-61, 74.04%
* 17 playoff appearances
* 1 Final Four appearance in 2007 losing to eventual champ St. X 10-7

Tough to dispute the results. A lot of talent has gone through Coffman over the last 20 years. I'm sure there is a season or two that everyone in the Coffman program felt they should have done better but that happens to all programs. I'm sure there are some in the Coffman community who believe the results should be better but they should be very careful what they wish for. A coaching change may make things better but it could also end up like a Upper Arlington.

Regarding the video, it is a bit distirbing assuming it was shot in the last month. Every town/school district is handling the social distancing as best they can. Lets just hope we all have a 2020 football season.

I never asked you for videos or information on this supposed major crime , so it’s clear you had an agenda . Everyone can see this . You said the culture will not be tolerated any longer by administrators concerning a coaching staff that has had excellent continuity and success for two decades now .

Kids have been high achievers in many areas including the classroom and have been very high character kids as a group overall for how long now ? Gone on to top academic and some power five schools . Very little to much of any off field issues yet the culture won’t be tolerated anymore according to you and the administration , current coaches and players former and present . This isn’t the same feedback I have gotten from players and I parents i must say . But you have no dog here but talk with coaches for we players and have a relative in administration and felt compelled to post in a public forum .

and then refrain from actually saying what you or others feel is wrong with the culture despite the successes I listed above
