Tim Buchanan, the coach of the No. 1 ranked high school football team in the state of Texas, whose Aledo squad destroyed an opposing team 91-0 last Friday, has been cleared of bullying charges. The charges were filed by the parent of an opposing player following the lopsided loss. Here is a look at the complaint obtained by the Associated Press: “Picking up my son from the fieldhouse after the game and taking him home was tough,” the complaint read. “I did not know what to say to my son on the ride home to explain the behavior of the aledo (sic) coaches for not easing up when the game was in hand.”One section of the complaint asks to list the names of any witnesses to the bullying. Wrote the parent: “everyone in the football stadium.”The parent put no blame on Aledo players, and instead praised them for good sportsmanship and wished them good luck. On Wednesday, district administrators concluded that after a detailed investigation, there were "no grounds" to support the outrageous complaint. “Basically, there were no grounds for bullying during the game, prior to the game or after the game,” Buchanan said. After the game, Buchanan said he felt terrible about the huge margin of victory, citing the fact that he removed his starters after just 21 plays, and agreed to use a running clock in the entire second half. Aledo, a three-time state champion, has won each of their four district games this season by an average margin of 77 points. Via Sports Illustrated
