He cussed his players like a sailor when he was in Lee Co. He said inappropriate things to cheerleaders. He apparently was the same with the female ball players at Lees. He burned major bridges when he left Lee Co. after he cussed the Superintendent. He's just an all around jerk. I wouldn't let him be an example for my kids. He's always been a brat and a bully.

Apparently the oh so sophisticated Mount Sterling folks think about the same thing about Gene as the hillbillies in Lee Co. judging by most of the posts. Since he was raised in Lee County I guess he's as much a hillbilly as anybody else there. I have a little bit of news for you Happy, just because you're a few miles up the road doesn't make you any less a hillbilly than anyone in Lee Co. You've proven by your language that you're easily as much a redneck or more than anyone in Lee Co.

Gene Combs is a most respected coach. He has the mis-fortune of coaching at one of the worst places in the world for whiny cry baby people. Blake Thomas is a really good baseball player, but he is even better person. If all of the kids at Monkey County had his class they might do something. Everyone makes errors. Leave his daddy alone, you just wish your family was as highly thought of as his.

Blake is a great kid and a real talent...but Mr and Mrs, cursing at the top of their lungs during the distric tourney at an umpire (or so called)....no class there.....also the kid that threw his helment and kicked a field goal with it should have been tossed!! Coach Combs should not have been tossed, i heard the conversation.. not warranted!!! Yea say you piece leave your profanity at home..after all thats what got the coach fired!!!!

To the people of Clark County. You didn't beat MoCo the bad calls from the umpires did. The ball that Pokie bunted,it hit him and he should have been out. You have 3 Ump that missed that call. The play at 3rd base was a bad call. Chas was safe but the Ump that cost us from going to the region about 2 years ago, did it to us again. Thats was some nice home cookin. Sorry but the best team on that nignt didn't win.

Like I said GQM, Monkey county is full of cry babies. I was at the game, the play at 3rd was real close and yes the ball hit Pokey on the bunt, clearly visible out IMO. Don't blame this on Clark County. MOCO was the 3rd best team in the district just like the seeds showed.Take care of business during the regular season and you might not have to play Clark in the 1st round. Don't act like some calls haven't went MOCO'S way too. I love the fact that MOCO is having to host the regional and not playing on their home field. Josh Powell and Gene Huffington, we won't even go there.

Combs deserved what he got...IMO he was around too long...sure he has all those accomplishments u all in favor named off (all a state blah blah, 14th region championships, blah blah) here's my question how many lex schools did he beat? How many times did he beat Clark? How many times did he play in a 40th district champ.? How many wins in the 10th region tourney? Now go back before him...05,04,03,01....all went to the regional tournament....03 finals of the region, 04 finals, 05 semis, not sure how far the 01 team went...I think the program has declined but why? The only wins he racks up are against 14th region opponents...I'd love to see his record against schools west of here...if there's even a record.

LOL at all of you who are hating on Coach Combs. I agree, the MCHS school system is a joke & it is all about who you know or what your last name is. I can almost guarantee that the ones on here complaining are the parents of those students who "didn't get played." You're all pathetic! Mister Combs didn't care about who you were, where you came from or who you knew. He played the players who were best at the sport most often. In order for a student to get recruited the BEST players need to be SEEN play. Not the kids who are clearly not going to get a scholarship playing baseball.

Had those of you who think you own this town had left him alone & LET him play the best players, maybe he would have taken the baseball team farther! You think that because you are a big wig in Mount Sterling that your child should get special treatment? LOLOLOL!

Well concerned alum, if you want to talk quality wins, he has plenty of those. Your bias against schools east of Mt Sterling baffles me. In those years you speak of, MoCo had loses to several eastern Kentucky teams. Also, keep in mind that in those years the 40th district was a 3 team district, with GRC, MoCo, and Estill county. That is probably why they had more appearances in the regional tourney. Regardless, they still had ZERO championship victories in that time span, and only have 1 EVER in their history, and that was when they were in the 16th region. A region that you consider sub-par to the 10th and 11th. So possibly, maybe the winning problem goes a little beyond Gene Combs. Montgomery has never had a tradition in anything, other than complaining about losing, as far as I am concerned. As for Combs, he has wins over many quality teams, but since you only consider quality teams as teams that are west of here, I'll give you a few of those.... GRC, Bourbon, Danville, Woodford, Madison Southern, Madison Central, Franklin Co, and Bryan Station.... and those are just off the top of my head. I will say that in the past few years, he hasn't had as much success against these teams, but if you know anything about Gene Combs, I don't know how can say he is not a good coach. Lastly, concernedalum, if you have such a problem with Combs, why don't you talk with him in person? Or with any of sons for that matter? They are pretty good sized men, and I'm sure they would love to meet you... Anyway, if you don't believe me about the wins, look it up yourself, you may be surprised by what you find...

I don't have a problem with gene on a personal level but I don't like his coaching antics. Station is one of the weakest in lex, he had a losing record against all district teams except Paris, Madison southern is weak. I will say the Danville win was a great game...that was the wooden bat tourney correct? His overall record here was 63-83 and 17-25 in district. Has to play Paris twice a year...he's been here since 07 so roughly 12 of the 17 were against them...to me that looks broke and it was time to fix it. How can u get any better playing letcher, lee, Wolfe, bath and whoever else year in and year out? We are much bigger than those a schools. We haven't had a reg season game against Harrison in who knows how long.
