    I have yet to figure out why common sense and common courtesy are called common.

    Re: Rush Propst Suspended

    I don’t know what Propst did to get suspended. But nothing short of felony physical violence against a man who could handle him would surprise me.

    He doesn’t think any rules / laws of any description apply to him.

    Colquitt fires Propst last night. No information on what “personal issues” got him canned.

    I only hope that this coach will seek help and forgiveness for what he has done. He should not be allowed to coach or be around athletes again after his record of wrongdoing at Hoover and Colquitt County. It is a sad situation only the Lord can solve.

    Having been around the guy a significant amount, one can always hope but I think it is unlikely at this point. His behavior has been narcissistic for years but now it is pushing sociopathic if he isn’t already there.

    Look at this report- every teacher knows you can’t give a student any medication (unless under the guidance of a care plan established by physician/healthcare provider) even OTC meds. Back taxes, insubordination..it goes on and on. All have an underlying theme-“the rules don’t apply to me. They are there for others.”

    Really good football coach. Really terrible human being.

    Highly interesting article. A couple of observations:

    Doesn't seem that he provided PEDs, at least not PEDs in the traditional sense. Based on the descriptions -- injured players taking a pill at halftime, and looking "dazed and lethargic" afterward, or injured players getting pills during the week -- it sounds more like painkillers. Which, depending on the nature of the painkiller, could be as bad as, or worse than, steroids and the like. Also could have caused the player to exacerbate an injury by playing when he shouldn't have.

    I don't know what Propst gave them. I do know that Aleve doesn't make you dazed and lethargic, but opioids do.

    Most of the rest of the stuff seemed classic narcissism and the feeling that other posters have noted about the rules being for the little people -- inserting himself into the process of hiring his boss, stiffing local businesses on bills, blaming others for losses, insisting on taking the team to a local motel on the night before a game (wth? in high school?), etc., etc. Then the threatening behavior when any of that is being taken away.

    I was most surprised, however, at the amount of the unpaid taxes -- a total of almost $450K. Depending, depending, depending, it would take between $1.0 and $1.5 million in taxable income to gin a bill that high. My real question here is how many years does that represent?

    The article says the issues go back to 2010, which not counting 2018 taxes that technically aren't due yet, would be 8 years. So I'm wondering if he never paid a dime in taxes? Don't see how that could happen, as he would have had taxes withheld by the Colquitt County School System. So did he file returns with fabricated deductions in order to get a full refund of everything he paid? If so, he has a dual problem -- filed false returns, and owes back taxes.

    Did he have outside income that he never reported? Possible, with coaching clinics, consulting and such. But $1.0 - $1.5 million worth -- $125K to $175K a year for 8 straight years? Seems like a lot at the high school level, even the elite high school level.

    And anyway, the IRS doesn't normally sit on their hands for a bill that size. How have they not taken truly draconian measures, what with both of Propst's middle fingers waving in their faces?

    I can't make sense of any of it. I have a feeling there will be a most interesting ending here.

    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Is Propst the real-life Bud Kilmer?
