Your statements are not based on facts. I can't speak for years past, but I can say with certainty this year LC called early and was told the schedule was full. I'm not going to get into a debate about who didn’t want to play who. I have too much respect for Coach Rice and Crews to make this a negative post. I can’t blame WC for playing Loretto or Summertown (which are the only 2 dates that would have worked for both) instead of LC. As for LC playing Obion Co. I assure you that was a desperation scheduling and there were no other viable choices
I try not to be argumentative on here, but everything I said was a fact. I know for a fact that WC wanted the game. WC talked to LC early enough in the process to get it done, and we tried yet again to work it out. I didn't let your statement go by again this scheduling cycle because we all hear the same thing from LC fans over the years about their scheduling issues, particularly in regards to the Wayne Co. game. The excuses are always the same: WC already had their schedule together, we couldn't work out the dates, etc. That might be true once or twice, buts it's not true for 8 straight years. We've played over 50 times since 1950, give me a break.
I'm not saying Coach Sharp is afraid of WC at all. I think he's a great coach. But it clearly isn't a priority for him or we would play. I think that's unfortunate, but let's please stop acting like WC didn't want to play (not that you said that, but it's actually been said on here before) or forces beyond LC's control prevented us from playing.
I look forward to the day when we can work out these scheduling issues, and resume the rivalry.
