    I am sure if BG had not converted the 4th and goal the "officials" would have called blackmon for something.

    The BG players were quoted as saying the blackmon players did not give them proper respect (also that they had class and were the better team despite being outgained 327 to 192 yds), what did the blackmon players say? I never saw any of that.

     

    Only person from a Blackman perspective that they interviewed was Shadowens. But based on what I saw on twitter and now in the paper, im sure the comments would not have been pleasant. I find it incredibly hard to believe that Blackman truly deserved all those penalties while Bowling Green got squat! When was the last time you saw a Blackman team lose its cool? I never have

     

    Talking trash is part of the game, but based on what I heard last night, the game was dangerously close to getting out of hand.

    Shad was just on the high school show on 104.5, I just caught the very end but the officials were a major topic of conversation from Matthew's segue. Any one catch the interview?

    Wow , if those Zebras are ejecting Blackman Players , will those players have to miss the playoff game next week ? Wow , if so this could be a costly game even if they pull out the win .

    I was a neutral observer tonight. I am a fan of BG's biggest rival, but wasn't willing to drive to Cincy to watch us play. So I decided to go across town to see this game. I have no love for BG, but they were the classier team tonight.

    I was taken back by the way the players AND coaches from Blackmon carried themselves. It started pre-game when Blackman ran right through the middle of BG's entrance to the stadium. It continued in the first half when players would taunt BG players after they made a nice play. This boiled over to halftime when the players taunted the BG crowd and when confronted the COACHES got in a shouting match with those trying to get their kids to calm down.

    The officials had no control in the first half. They decided to clean up all of the tainting and trash talking (needed to be done). Blackman never adjusted. They continued to taunt and when they were called for it preceded to argue and whine. They earned every one of those unsportsmanlike conduct penalties. The coaching staff should be ashamed of the way they allow their kids to act. It probably cost them the game tonight.

    I have seen a few TN-KY games over the years.  I no longer go to watch games in KY because of the officiating.  It is brutal.

    Thanks for your post and perspective. I only listened to the game on the radio, the announcers (from Middle Tenn) did not mention the taunting (I don't anticipate the announcers are going to be nominated for any sports Emmy awards in the near future by the way).

    My opinion on what I witnessed last night "what a rat hole!" You call an un-sportsman like on Shank (one of the nicest kids you will ever meet) the ref said "don't push me and threw the flag" Then they don't throw the flag on their guy when he hits Juan a good two seconds after he's out of bounds on BG sideline. Shad is a bigger man that I am. I would have loaded the bus at the half and headed to the boro cause you ain't gonna win that one. Sometimes you gotta beat 11 and sometime you gotta beat 16, last night it was 16.

     

    On a positive I liked the way we battled and the Fant kid is a stud. :popcorneater:

    Ok.  I've posted very little this year choosing to stay out of all the arguing that goes on on this site but I was at the game and I feel a need to respond to this post.

     

    As far as Blackman running thru Bowling Greens entrance onto the field - It was unintentional and due to the poor setup of Bowling Green's field.  For those that were not there, there was no visitors side.  One big Home side.  Blackmans fans probably had about 1/3 of one side of the field.  Therefore Blackman set up to run out on the field in front of there fans which were on that side of the field.  Bowling Green sets up to run on the field from the other side and runs at an angle right toward the visitors bench.  They both happen to run on the field at the same time and therefore run right into each other.  Completely unintentional by both teams so this should be the end of this being an act of disrespect by Blackman.

     

    The most classless part of the 1st half in my opinion was Bowling Greens coach who was very demonstrative the whole 1st half while yelling at the officials and also going into halftime.  He was the one that almost incited a riot with his actions at that time.  It was him that caused Coach Shad to come over to the official who was being yelled at by Bowling Greens coach and caused some kind of words to be exchanged.  This is what fired up Blackman's team and had them extremely geeked going into halftime that Bowling Green seen as disrespectful.

     

    As far as all the personal fouls on Blackman, All I know is the officials appeared to be ready to call them on us all night, but evidently it was pretty difficult to get one called on Bowling Green.

     

    I will say there was a couple of classless Blackman fans yelling a lot at this game.  I had never seen or heard these guys before and am not sure why they were so vocal.  I did not like hearing that from them but unfortunately you got some of these in every crowd on every team.

     

    Otherwise great game between 2 really good teams.  The Fant kid for Bowling Green was the best player on the field in my opinion.

     

    Go Blaze!!!
