Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Ants In Their Pants

Burney senses some restlessness in the Southfield boys basketball program over the fact that the Bluejays have yet to name a head coach and it appears if the hire won't be made until August. I'm hearing a number of players are discussing transferring due to this uncertainty on the bench
That would be a shame because the 'Jays cage crew constructed as is has the opportunity to be very dangerous come tipoff in December.
Now, this is a complicated job-fill there's no question about it. I sympathize with those in charge of what I'm certain is an arduous process. The pending merger with crosstown foe Southfield-Lathrup is surely a factor in the decision and probably plays into the process' length issue.
Regardless, the current roster is bearing the brunt of the fallout from the slow hire. Here's hoping it doesn't derail a potential special season in 2016.
