I think I admitted that from the get go.

I agree. I said they looked average in the way they played vs copley.

Well, we might not have gone 2-21 this year had two of the starters from Hoban stayed home.

Because the flight of talent to greener pastures is ruining my hometown sports program. It's one thing to move along to a new school quietly. It's another to beat your chest every time your team does well. Had Cougar chosen to do the former, we wouldn't be having this conversation. He chooses to glow in the fact that his team has assembled the best talent in the state, which they have. Congratulations on that. Don't expect those of us in the wastelands of high school sports to sit on the sidelines and cheer you on.

Why would they have stayed home as you call it? Home school as you call it had a ton of talent in the past only to underperform and exit in the first round. Coaching was terrible, and itís gotten worse with new coach. Also what happened to the rest of the kids who stayed home to play? They all left the program. 2 seniors this year (1 moved in this year) and a couple of JRís. So 2 kids might have won a couple of more games but not much more. Program is in the crapper. 3rd coach in 5 years. This one is the worse and will be gone soon.

Kids have been leaving Kent for years. 2 of the beat athletes in the 2017 class left for St Ignatus and St V. I didnít hear a word. 2 more in that class left for Stow and Woodridge their sophomore year. Why? And I didnít Hear anyone complain when the best athlete in decades came to Kent from a private middle school to attend At Kent? Fact is that kids come and go and 1-2 kids donít ruin a ďprogramĒ.

Pounding their chest on social media??? Really?? Thatís what grinds your gears that our decision to sacrifice $$ and send our son to a private school that affords him better opportunities academically and athletically. Sure they have more talent, they also play a much tougher schedule.

So if I get you correctly itís that we brag on the success of our kids?? Is that it? If we didnít boast of their success you wouldnít have a problem?

Sat in the middle of the Hoban section. The crowd was not happy with the officials. Brian Roberts was incredible and fun to watch. Hoban returns bigs in Dom, Salopek and QE. Frosh Daryl Peterson could make impact (clearly the top player on the JV squad) at the wing. Snyder will remain a sharp Shooter from the outside. The Knights will need to find a true PG and develop some depth. Overcoming the loss of Their senior guards will be a huge hurdle.

Kent used to be better in the past, I'm not sure what happened to them. Football was respectable once upon a time, I think they used to be good at basketball. I dunno, they seem to have had trouble ever since they left the ptc, for the suburban. It seems to me that Kent Roosevelt has far bigger problems then private schools poaching their talent. I mean, look at Green. Hoban and SVSM get all kinds of students and athletes from them. And yet in spite of it, Green's football team is holding its own...and getting better in the Fed, I think they knocked off a respectable Glen Oak team. And Greens basketball program has been pretty good as well, they held on pretty good against Hoban. Seems to me that kids are leaving Kent for a reason, and I'm not sure if I blame them.

You hit it on the nail. Why are they leaving is the question that roughridersports needs to answer.

I went to Saint Paul's when I was a lad. I was bullied a lot there, unlike my high school years at Coventry where I've had no problems making friends. I would say my experience with Saint Paul's is chiefly the reason why I struggle to have any respect for "a catholic education". Don't get me wrong, I am still a devout catholic myself, I have a hard time believing "a catholic education" means anything anymore. If I were to send my kids to a private school, Id probably send them to CVCA over SVSM, Hoban, or Walsh, and I say this as someone who has two sisters that went to SVSM.

Truly sorry to hear that, I was bullied at public and then when i went to an area Catholic high school had no problem, which is why I in return have a bad view about public education. Each person has a different experience and walks down a different road in life. Glad to read that you are still a devote Catholic and it didn't turn you away from the faith. Godspeed.

What athletes or students came from Kent to Green, confused?

You would be surprised how bad it is at private schools with bullying...especially with top athletes getting away with everything!
Cool you disagree with me and I'll continue to disagree with you, that plus other things are major reasons why I have a bad view about public schools. It's my opinion just like the other poster stated theirs about "catholic education."

Maybe try to listen to other people before stating that their views are stupid, it will help in the long run. .

It's not personal towards the people for choosing private schools. It's frustrating losing the best athletes to private schools. Privates have the luxury to not have to deal with that frustration as they are welcoming all the best to their schools. You can surely put yourself in the public's situation and understand why the publics are a little salty.

Nobody transfers to Green. I was using Green as an example of a school that loses a lot of students to private schools, and yet manages to do ok athletically. I was using that to point out that Kent Roosevelts athletic woes is not because of their students leaving for private schools.

Sad news, I used to walk down Mission to Brown St. every school day, until we outgrew our little bungalow on Sunset, and moved to Stow. Sorry to see it go.

You are selling your kid short, which is unlike you. He is likely to be an all-state basketball selection (at some level), and the other is also very good and will be a D1 football player. Did you ever think that perhaps, had you stayed, that some of the others wouldn't have left? And that you (along with the rest) could have helped turn the program around?
