    There is a big difference between being successful at Dixie Junior College and being successful at a High School. At Dixie, Coach Crowshaw was certainly successful, but he had almost unlimited scholarships, very little in the way of regulations or oversight, and tons of talented D1 level athletes who were non NCAA qualifiers. How did he do at Mesa CC? At Cottonwood he faces a situation that will be much more difficult in that recruiting is not allowed, and now without the support of Scott Cate, funds will be more scarce. He will need to do much more hands on coaching to get the most out of the athletes he has. I wish him the best of luck, but my hunch is that he will struggle mightily.

    Crow is an experienced guy and can tell football stories by the hour. Fun guy to be around and the kids will like him. Just don't expect him to remember their names. Best of luck coach.

    He was not "cleared of wrongdoing" he was cleared of "Criminal behavior". Those are not the same thing.

    Regarding the sweep of a beauracrat's pen, it was a knee jerk reaction to Timpview. It's a process being felt by all of the schools in the district, not an issue of money or jealousy as MOMS alleged. Anyone who wants to donate any money or equipment to any Granite District school must now fill out the proper paper work. I fear that because of the steps by not just Granite, but most Wasatch front districts, there is the chance that high school athletics will start shifting more toward club sports. Think about lacrosse and rugby, and comp soccer - none of the have the regulations of UHSAA sanctioned activities. With stricter policies by the districts and ultimately the state, don't be surprised to see a bigger push toward club sports.

    Greg Croshaw is an exceptional coach that will get the most out of his athletes. He is a proven winner. SLCguy, you're questioning his high school coaching experience. Seriously? His experience far outweighs his predecessor's! This late in the game, GSD got extremely lucky to hire a coach of his caliber. Croshaw will win at Cottonwood, and will do so with integrity!

    How can these two new guys 'heal' a program that just had their heart cut out?

    The only constant the last decade, the one who lead the rememberances of BOTH fallen coaches, the one who focused the kids and demanded they put out their best, has just been eliminated with a sweep of a bureaucrat's pen.

    Hey Granite District, I only wish I could fire all of you instead. What you have done to these kids and this program is criminal in its own right.

    And tell me again how much High School Coaching experience Mr. Crowshaw has? Last time I heard, it's different.

    The coach was cleared of wrongdoing. A generous donor tossed out. Apparently, there is a great deal of money and jealousy available in that school district.

    Strap it on Cottonwood kids, you're going to enjoy the ride! Cro is a great coach. Good to see Greg back on the sidelines as a head coach in Utah. Good luck Greg!
