The only time Ive ever known a coach to write a letter to his team, is when he is on his way out. Though it is a hoax, something seems really strange about this.

Good night, the grammar on that letter might have been the first clue it was a hoax!

You're right. It was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too well written to have come from Brian Castner

My guess is, it came from Sycamore. You send out this letter, it stokes the fires for some retaliation from Withrow and Mason responds accordingly. This leads to ejections on BOTH sides of the ball and players ineligible for the next week. Advantage, Sycamore. Nothing would surprise me when it comes to Mason/Sycamore.

Jim Place used to write fake letters like this from "opposing teams" to fire his team up. Did it quite often.

Possibly, part of the Charlottesville fallout, since it involves Mason HS.

It would be way funnier if it wasn't at least somewhat believable.

But... that wouldn't matter if none of the students knew the grammar was bad.

The Myth is on a distinguished road
This is textbook Jim Place, I didn't know he was the HC at Withrow... But I cannot believe the media bit on this. They have less journalistic integrity than I thought. They used a screenshot of a Snapchat from a student...If I was Mason I wouldn't have released a statement or done any interviews. This is ludicrous. But I don't think Place had any intentions of this getting out and being an issue but hey social media these days. I was under the impression Mason was focusing on Sycamore already and they were getting the seniors who don't normally get to play ready for Withrow. But after all this attention I have a feeling Mason comes out full force and makes a statement.

I don't think there is any ill will. But that conspiracy 3D chess theory about Sycamore doing it is my favorite one yet. No doubts in my mind that this was Jim Place just trying to motivate his team.

Jim Place used to be the HC at Withrow, current HC is Nathaniel Snow. I'm not sure Coach Place did this when at Withrow, but I knew he did things like that in the past. Place is at Ponitz in Dayton now if I am not mistaken.

Oh my bad, yeah I didn't know he was still coaching. I knew he was at Withrow but I thought he left. But this is something he used to do at Hamilton back some time ago.

"Two Miami University College Students Acquitted in RaceCase
Defense points finger at Black administrator, both sides still smarting
OXFORD, Ohio The acquittal earlier this month of two former African American students accused of faking a racist hate crime at Miami University here has left faculty, staff and students split in their interpretations of the decision.
The jury, with seven White and one Black panelist, deliberated eight hours before finding Nathaniel Snow of Cincinnati and Brad Allen of suburban Cleveland not guilty of criminal trespass and criminal mischief. Later the university issued an formal apology to both students. Tentatively, both Snow and Allen will re-enroll spring semester.... "

Speak what you know

My apologies for googling his name and posting his photo. Both Snow and the other student accused were acquitted at trial. Strange coincidence, though.

Seems to always be something "odd" going on in Mason.

Enough already......

See how the snakes among us operate?
This propaganda is evil.
Anyone who fakes this garbage to inflame peoples emotions is a POS.
Over a game?

I was once in a locker room before a game and a coach was yelling and trying to get the team fired up by saying how the other team didn't respect them because of the color of their skin.
Three of us called the guy out and told him it was BS and wrong and he told me "whatever works".
He was way over the line.
What a demented SOB.
....
Whoever put the fliers in the building at Miami U is also a POS.
Young people on campus were scared that violence could break out because someone in the shadows was obviously trying to inflame racial tension.
Yes Snow was acquitted of the charges along with his friend.
This is fact.

However their controversial attorney smeared a faculty member in the process and caused damage to this person without any evidence at all against that faculty member.
When Snow and the other guy were originally confronted with the evidence against them and questioned, Snow and his pal dropped out of school.
Why would they do that?
They never offered any explanation of how THEIR FINGERPRINTS got on the fliers and refused to testify.
These are also undisputed facts.

Whomever typed that letter needs to have bright light shined on them so they can be exposed.
The dividers and propagandists in our society are getting away with it.
A lot of good people are getting hurt.
The country is getting damaged.
It's just wrong in every way.
