The 100-0 Backlash

First off, let me make this clear: When it comes to pouring on the points in any sports game this is how I feel.

In Texas, Covenant smashed Dallas Academy 100-0. The girls on the losing team didn't complain and the head coach of Covenant Micah Grimes lost his job. No, not this Grimes.

I don't see the problem with running up the score regardless of the fact that it was high school girl's basketball.

What is the winning team supposed to do, take a knee?

So the story goes Dallas Academy has been a bad team for a while while Covenant is one of the state's best teams.

If the program is that bad, switch conferences, fire the coach or shut down the program.

The only problem with the whole situation was that Covenant was firing up three-pointers in the latter half of the game. Other than that, I don't know what they were supposed to do.

Athletes are taught to be the best and that sportsmanship is still important but we constantly see on television that the latter is no longer true.

We live in a world of me-first sports driven by highlights of antics and big plays. Why should a team hold back? I bet if they got blasted by another team they wouldn't complain.

As a big Kansas State fan I remember football coach Bill Snyder getting blasted for running up the score against bad teams.

People forget his Wildcats were on the opposite end of the stick for a long time.

If you can't stop a team, how is that their fault?
