I'm not white knighting anybody. Of course Ivins has the right to be pissed, he went through the correct procedures and got a null response then kicked out the stadium. The football staff should be helping him get his credentials, not arguing with him, but THEY aren't the ones in the wrong here. This whole situation falls on the shoulders of the AD not doing his job.
Agreed. I think Ivins was specific about saying he was upset with the higher ups and not the coaches....then this coach nobody knows started spouting off so he reacted. I'm assuming whatever coach did invite Ivins will be annoyed with that coach. I get it from both sides and I think all blame falls on the AD as well.

After the asshole coach resplied to his initial message like a dick. That coach should have been smoothing things over. Ivins was just escorted by the police out of the stadium...that's some bullshit.
I wasn't there to see everything, maybe Ivins showed his a$$ and disrespected the coach. Either way there are rules to follow. Mr Ivins must have done something that the police saw fit to escort him out. I know for sure getting mad at a coach and taking it out on the kids is ghey

The **** you talkin about? People on here said they witnessed it. You honestly think that Ivins showed his ass? How many of these events does he attend every season with no incident? That's dumb as hell. He got mad at a coach because that coach looked like a fuckin idiot on Twitter. Ivins even said that he tried to apply for credentials with the AD and gets no response. You have your narrative...so **** all the facts...

Nah the ***** is this fool at the HS hinting at pissing someone off could cost him more than entry into the game. Total jackass comment. Who the hell threatens a reporter that is giving exposure to the kids?
Sounds like he was giving him advice. Obviously Ivins got beef with someone at MN. That has enough pull to cost him his job. I don't think it's the coach. Ivins should be thanking the coach for looking out. Instead of being a a$$

I read that coaches Twitter feed. He'd be fired in a day if he coached where I grew up just based upon his posts and likes alone. I am not saying he should be one way or the other but does his feed seem a little aggressive seeing as he's a coach of teenagers? Like would it piss player's parents off?

Not a good look for MNW. In the end 247 is a prime recruiting site losing that exposure is only hurting the kids. If what the coach said is true and they are ignoring him for a reason then that is a B*tch move. I'm a grown man if I have a problem with any man I can walk right up to him look him in the eyes and let him know what time it is. Ignoring/not responding to media requests when you are a public official is a fireable offense in my opinion.

these 247 writers are reporters looking for a job correct?
I mean didn’t one of our own cis staffers get hired by gators 247?
I’ve always been suspect of ivins after a comment he made on the big 3 roll up.
When cmr was putting together storm 18 he said something on the big 3 roll up like “I have no idea how or why they are signing the guys they are. They just signed Brian Hightower who is from California. A guy they should have no business signing”
I couldn’t believe he was saying that. I know it’s hard to have a reporter be an actual fan but damn.
I also don’t trust 247 at all. The way they’ve down played everything from everyone else but but blow up anything that happens here is so obvious.
The Grace and AQM thing was front page on the 247 home page for like 10 days.
The fact that the founders of those sites are all sec grads makes it even more suspect.
You basically have a monopoly on a lot of recruiting information controlled by sec fans.
You think saban or Kirby doesn’t get on the phone over there and asks what is this kid saying what has he told you guys?
Also what a dumb ass thing to say that he won’t give a kid a good review for som sht he had nothing to do with.

More South Florida ego maniacal, peacocking youth football idiocy. These dopes, in their zeal to flex their misplaced egos, forget that they are HS football coaches, who should be looking out for the kids’ best interests and not trying to show their 39 Twitter followers their e-beefing skills. Grow up, and deflate that misplaced ego a little.

Both sides are wrong. It’s not in your kids best interest to piss off someone that could give the lesser ones more exposure. No need to embarrass him with the police escort.

Ivins is wrong for saying he will now punish any future NW kid because of the coaches/administrators. He’s lost his objectivity now. We knew that journalists write favorable or negative stories based on personal relationships but now we have written evidence of bias. I can get being upset but he crossed the line with that comment.
I don't think that is what he meant...hence why he deleted the tweet. But, if he can't see them play, how can he recommend them to anyone?
