    The Texas High School basketball game ended 100-0. The winning coach refused to apologize and was fired. Should he have been? Who was to blame for the blow-out?

    In Jr High, I was on a team (second string) and we beat a team 3 time in the same season. 72-12/72-12/74-14 (i can only remember this because the margin of victory never changed over three games). We didn't try to run up the score, they were just terrible and we were really good. We worked hard during practice and our offense was designed to score quickly.

    We didn't whoop it up and try to embarrass the other team. The second and third teams played half the game. We just played and left. Two of the games were on their court.

    The losing team hadn't won a game in 4 years. If I was going to nail anyone's butt to a wall it would be the fool who scheduled the teams to play each other. That was asinine, not to mention cruel.

    That's how I see it, too. The winning coach isn't to blame, and didn't do anything wrong by winning.
