    Exactly. We're not trying to be jerks or anything. Just keeping things real, and the reality is under the current leadership, PI is nowhere close to where it needs to be unless things change. That change needs to happen sooner rather than later, otherwise the damage done will be irreparable.

    The school board and sup are the ones who provided the heavy anchor while providing a boat that is not seaworthy

    Growing up in La Feria, I know all too well how dominant of a football program Port Isabel had. They were the most storied program in the valley. It will be a shame if they become a mediocre program. Good luck to the tarpons, hope they can get their swagger back.

    That's a pretty loaded question.

    Let's just say, my answer would get me in trouble with Chuck. I'd like to keep my record clean, tyvm.

    All damage is repairable in a traditional program like PI but the ? is how long will they allow program to decay.

    Word is they're giving him another year, which to me, is unfathomable. What the powers that be in PI see in this guy is beyond me.

    How long has it been decaying in your opinion? I don't agree with decaying at all. If its decaying like you put it then it started way before any new coaches got there. Maybe it takes another year or two but I say this is just a bump.

    It's really a matter of opinion, but I'd say the hiring of Infante is when the decay really got going. I mean, a 2-8 result speaks for itself after a 9-2 season just 1 year ago.

    In my opinion it started last fall with the only wins against Hidalgo and Progreso . Those teams might have combined for 2 wins this year. PI's loses were ugly. They say attendance dropped as well. They were projected to finish 2nd in polls and only won those 2 games.

    In '12 they made 4th round, 'in '13 they made 3rd round. In '16 they were 9-2 and district co-champs. They battle Sweeney in a close bi-district game. They also beat a highly touted St Joseph team that had Ricardo Miner and Kai. The program had been solid.

    That is my point your making, PI has done well recently so the decaying usage is a little extreme, just difference of words. If the new coaches don't produce the next year or after I doubt PI with so much tradition will keep him around. I hope for PI's sake the compadre system hasn't taken hold.
