I calling in about the fan who called in in the January 11th and 12th editions about Charleston fans. Let's get it straight. You all did beat Charleston, you beat us for the first time since 1991 on our floor. That is a great accomplishment. I would just like to say we beat Sikeston twice a year on their floor, every year and you all finally beat us since 1991. Let's get it straight. We lost to Bell City but you all don't play any of the competition we play. You don't play Webster Groves. We don't play any weak teams like Scott City and Oran and Kelly and South Pemsicot. These are the type of teams Sikeston has on its schedule. Before you get in the Bluejays shoes and talk about what we do and don't do, play some competition up to our competition. We have the toughest schedule in the area for the past 15 years. Get that straight.

You know Bulldog fans, even the sun shines on a dog's behind every once in a while. You did beat Charleston and that is a good accomplishment for a team that hadn't beaten them on their home floor since 1991, in 1999 in the the series period. Let's not get carried away I know Charleston used to beat Sikeston twice a year and most of them happened on Sikeston's floor. Sikeston has some good players. I will tell you this, Charleston has had three coaches in the last 30 years, the other two previous ones to the one we have now were all championship coaches. We are about winning championships. The banners will tell you everything. Charleston and Scott Central are the cream of the crop in Southeast Missouri for basketball. Scott Central is just starting to come back now but we will always maintain that level because we have the players and the coaches. We don't just have a couple with enough discipline and defense to get us over the edge. We have already broke Scott Central's record for the most championships in the state of Missouri. So let's not get carried away Bulldog fans, we will be in Columbia in March, will you?

Rules are rules. Yes, it is the administration and the principals' problem when students break rules. That is their job - to enforce all school rules in the handbook and if you had read it, you would know it is there and it is a school rule and does need to be enforced.
