Smith is a joke. To stand by the coach and back him and keep him in power is disgraceful. Not only stand by him, but to parade him around like the second coming. Take him on trips to OSU and who knows what else. Yet, they were quick to fire Shad Benton and that staff when the accusations went down the first time, and rightly so. Yet, that wasn’t under Smith. They had some real leadership and ethics at that time. Far from the current regime. Benton’s situation was far less egregious than this clown’s circus show he brought to Osborne Street.

Basically, Bassett brought in a good many wrestlers to BM, at $7,000 per high school "student" (less per Jr high kid). Unless they all got some kind of "scholarship". Never-the-less, it would be hard for Smith to turn down that kind of potential windfall for the school.

Which is why he is a total joke. Business over the right decision. Greed over ethics. Cheating over honor. Etc. etc. etc.

$7000 per kid x (number of recruits) — scholarships — legal fees for getting caught = ??

Doesn’t seem worth it

You forgot to use Adult Ego in your calculation. That makes it all worthwhile.

So if they would have just brought in 6 stud Russian wrestlers, like they did for hockey, there would be no problem?

Also have to love that the McCort circus of administration and supporters are OK with the suspended coach parading around in full McCort gear at youth tournaments swearing at referees and coaches while coaching on the mat. Disobeying rules about how many coaches and people should be in each wrestler’s corner in what looks to me some strong arm tactic of intimidation for youth that are the opponents. Especially as the announcer on some Flo wrestling feeds of the matches are commenting about how he should be ejected for vulgar language and not following rules. These people are so ridiculous and think they are above the rules…..probably how he ended up screwing up the HS careers of a bunch of kids that have parents who drank the kool aid. Absolute embarrassing behavior by an “adult” coach. Yet, McCort not only sits back with no actions to show a backbone, but even promotes how wonderful this shameful, cheating, lying, and damage causing “coach” has been for their program. Also, the word program is used very loosely, as a program is defined as a group that has been built up at one place and not assembled from greed and the deranged idea of scouring the US for the best talent with the least amount of ethics to try and dominate a small class of PA athletics. Congrats Bishop McCort, you seem to continually outdo yourself as a “district” and “administration” that sinks lower and lower each passing day. Your hockey “program” and wrestling “program” is really putting a spotlight on how prestigiously you conduct business at your academically focused institution. Most likely why your supporters are one of two groups, those from within the school and those from far enough away to only hear the sob stories posted online and in articles in the newspapers. The people around here see, hear, experience, and know better than to swallow that pill.
