Team Bullied in 91-0 Rout?

Article excerpt

A parent at a Texas school that lost a football game, 91-0, filed a bullying complaint against the winning coach.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Aledo High School coach Tim Buchanan learned of the online complaint against him Saturday, the day after his team beat Western Hills in a Class AAAA matchup.

State law requires Aledo's principal to investigate the complaint and prepare a report, but Western Hills coach John Naylor told the paper he disagreed with the bullying allegation.

Buchanan's team, a powerhouse in suburban Fort Worth that has put up similar numbers against other schools, averages 69.3 points a game and is on its way to a 7-0 record. He pulled his starters after 21 plays, and the clock ran uninterrupted beginning in the third quarter.

"It wasn't good for anybody," Buchanan said. "I've sat and gone over and over and over it on what we could have done differently. The score could have very easily been 150 to nothing."
