Place has scam written all over

What could be any possible end game in investing in this place?

It's in the middle of nowhere and the only way to attract big time players is with free tuition and elite facilities.

No it won't and there's absolutely zero business models to support this.IMG is a multi billion dollar organization with unlimited funding.A real estate "mogul" from Montgomery or "wherever can't come close to a IMG type program.

It is another SEC high school farm team/minor league. The school will give scholarships to deserving athletes.

Beneficiaries will fund the school. The SEC.

I guess there will be an academic aspect, like getting out of failing public schools, removing your child from a dangerous neighborhood where he might have a chance, isolating him from criminal activity, all of which has everything to do with advancing the education in our little corner of the USA. We have failed.

That said, this a football school devoted to training athletes. That's all it is.

East Central Community College has to be the ultimate directional school.

That's already part of this and I'm sure part of the funding plan.

I don't care who opens up a school or how they get players but I don't see this working. It'll end up like Prime Academy with handlers/agents everywhere and trouble with the academics being accepted by compliance. The academic side is easily doable the right way, like millions of home schooled kids everywhere, but a place like this, with someone like Propst running things, is only worried about football so you know there will be shenanigans and controversy. Schools will eventually be scared to touch the kids because of eligibility questions. Give it 3 years tops.

Honestly, I prefer this model than the average school wasting resources chasing dreams that'll never happen. It reminds me of how Australia approaches youth development in sports. Schools place much more emphasis on winning than developing players the long-term.

Like who? And why on God's name would someone invest in this place especially with someone like Probst?

It makes zero sense

Who do you church going, better than thou, judgement passing hypocrites think you are?

What is so bad about having two families? He didn't beat his wives. He didn't molest his children. He didn't chase helpless women around town, beat them, lose his job, move in with his father at almost 40 years of age, etc...

He provided for his families. He loved his families. So what if he lied a few times and didn't tell one wife about the other wife? He likes pussy; is that illegal?

We have a gnarly, old man creep in Kiffin that sexual exploits every just turned 18 piece of new meat he can hunt down and goes through 70 burner phones a season.

I don't hear you preachers preaching about him being a horrible, detestable, terrible human being at his very core.

All you hear about this Joey Freshwater predator perve is that it's going to be so much fun, such happy, happy times watching him coach and tweet you can hardly wait for it to all start.

Then your type turn around and start laying down morality judgements on Probst. Give me a break.

Sounds exactly like what this place is doing.

Why would a kid from metro Atlanta go there when he could get a free ride to any number of private schools here that have top notch facilities,coaching and academics?

What we in the IT world call Vaporware.

It is supposed to be an "IMG" like school just outside Montgomery Alabama.

The guy that started it tried to get elected to the state legislature 2 years ago. I heard him speak - he was running for state house and didn't know the name of the state senator that represented what would be his district.

When he announced his 'school' he didn't hadn't even started the rezoning process for the land he claimed it would be. He has no school, no stadium, no teachers. It is all paper.

They'll never play a game and some folks may well end up wearing handcuffs before all is said and done.

Ok first off you are completely clueless of who I am if you think I am some "church going, better than thou, judgement passing hypocrite." I dont believe in fairy tales that talk about unicorns, walking on water, and zombies.

Secondly, you would be absolutely correct if you were only talking about what happened at Hoover. I dont give two shits about what someone does in their bedroom or bedrooms.

You must be ignorant to what happened after Hoover. Let me enlighten you I suppose...

In June 2016, the Georgia Professional Standards Commission announced that Propst would be suspended for the entire 2016 season after head-butting one of his players (and bloodying himself) during a December 4, 2015 playoff game. He appealed and was instead given a reprimand.

On March 14, 2019, Propst was relieved of his duties as the high school's head football coach in a unanimous vote by the Colquitt County Board of Education. His dismissal followed an investigation that determined he had violated the Code of Ethics for Educators for (1) legal compliance, (2) conduct with students, (3) honesty, and (4) public funds and property, including giving pills to students “on more than one occasion”

Yeah... I called him a terrible human being because of where he puts his little willy. Freaking idiot...

They prob. won't, but not every star athlete lives in a huge metro area. OJ Howard played in the smallest div. in Alabama, and folks thought he was overrated coming out of h.s. Someone like Demarcus Ware or Terrell Owens could use such a set-up. Hell, the 49ers started two safeties who came from the same Alabama h.s.!

When the cameras click off, the reporters leave the interview area, and it's just Mike Leach and his players on the field, he locks them up in tiny metal shacks if they complain about medical problems.

Left to rot for hours upon hours in isolation for daring to question the Pirate's complete and total command of his "ship" doesn't seem to bother you too much.

I haven't seen you or anyone else complaining and whining about how irredeemable Leach's very soul is and how he is surely a human piece of shite and you can't comprehend how he keeps getting jobs.

What I do see are a lot of double standards. Is Probst head-butting a little retard football player any worse than Leach shackling one in a heat box for complaining about an physical injury?

Yet, to hear SEC Fanboys drone about about Leach you'd never even imagine his human character was just as, if not more, flawed as Probst's. Leach is funny in a psycho, creepo, low- key type of way and he reads books so, it's okay with him.

I can't wait to see you posting, up on your perch, about the worth of Leach's existence because he was ran off from Texas Tech for abusing players.

I went to High school with his daughter and son, from his first family. He is a piece of shite to both of them, and many many other people. Just because he didn't hit a woman or molest someone doesn't mean he is a good person.

Propst has gotten 3 players from the Class of 2020 to re-classify to 2021 so they can be a part of his initial class at USA Academy.

I don't know who two of the players are, but the one that I do know is Safety Javier Morton from Georgia. He was committed to Alabama for almost 18 months before decommitting last August.
