    An assistant at Baylor? One thing is for sure, he knows how to lose, especially to OU!

    Congrats to Coach Kinne. People have got to remember not to bash the coach after his first year here. I believe it will take a couple of years to get his system into place. So Sherman fans lets be patient with this transitional period. I hope the best of luck to the Coach and staff and to the players we believe in your sacrifices on and off the field. We are very proud of ya'll

    I'm thankful the School Board voted 7-0 in favor of Coach Kinne. That show of solidarity was obviously instrumental in their decision to extend a 1 year, probationary contract. A 6-1 vote would have probably secured a week to week deal. Way to get behind your new Man Sherman.
