I didn't know that was you filming me lol. 2015 State Champs too

No.......you would have still been runnerup. We would have had the Gold ball. You would have had it in 2016. Goldsmith would have probably been back for the title game in 2015.

Bassy is right. I wouldn't want a title handed to us like that anyway. If it was proven true it's a raw deal for the kids from MC, Waverly or whoever else would have had a shot. But it's an even worse thing for the kids that were manipulated for personal gain from a staff or administration. Until proven otherwise Trezevant is your state champion.

 

You are exactly right. The real "victims", (if the allegations are true) are the Trez kids who were used for the purpose of competing for titles, passed through the system without merit, then discarded. The Memphis faithful will probably defend the school and coaches regardless of findings, when they should be offended by the whole concept. 

  Education is the way out of poverty for everyone...football for the .05 percent.

Five hundredths of a single percent?

Five hundredths of a single percent?

I watched an ESPN documentary one time that spike to this. They mentioned that less than 1% of all high school athletes receive a full paid scholarship to compete in that sport in college. Of all of those athletes that play sports in college, less than 1% go on to play that sport professionally. So I would say that trader is probably pretty accurate.

I'd say that wouldn't be much of an overstatement...I specified football, not athletics, and technically a scholarship is education. I'm referring to the very few who sign to play for pay.

I think we meant the same thing. I just mentioned the documentary as a way to point out the very small likelihood that same will actually make their living playing football.
