    $151,000 investigation w/in Hoover (Ala.) High football finds grade fixing and coach Rush Propst hiding income. Apparently coach was also supporting a second family.

    Wow, and people act like Texas football is the only high schools out of control.

    This was the team that was featured on MTV if I am not mistaken.

    Assuming there was any grain of truth written on the earlier threads about Propst, this really shouldn't come as a surprise.

    Remember the line about Barry Switzer when he took the Cowboys job and people questioned whether he could be successful in the NFL? "He never had to worry about a salary cap at Oklahoma."

    Sounds like some 'Bama prep personnel can make the jump to the NCAA just fine.

    I remember watching the first season of Two-a-Days and wanting to bathe every time Propst came on the screen.

    The only way the Hoover district can redeem itself, at least in my mind, is fire Rush Propst and replace him with Jeff Probst of Survivor fame. That I would watch.

    Does not surprise me one bit. There's been rumblings that Propst and Hoover was in some kind of trouble for a while now.

    It's quite an interesting tale, actually... frought with pain and angst, the inevitable "We need to keep him through the season for the kids," two school board members with a dueling cleavage contest and fueled by a message board more screwed up than ours. Oh, did I mention the high school prinicpal who lasted a year -- going in as Rush's college roommate (oops, forgot to bring that up at the job interview) and going out kicking and screaming and telling the world about the hidden second family?

    Hoover has two state sanctions in the last year (spying on practice and using ineligible players in a JV game on Propst's say so) and are facing a third for an ineligible transfer.
    It will not be a matter of If he goes but when.

    Then there's the vice-principal who resigned last week, and was having "an improper" relationship with Probst.

    Yeah, there was some nice cleavage on the school board mammies.
