  1. Today
  2. Never heard of that name.Is he a transfer or new to the team?
  3. Had to expect that to happen. Hard for a guy to go from coaching D1 basketball to coaching DA in one year. Drew was still getting paid by Vandy to sit around for a year.
  4. He went back to coaching with Coach Drew.
  5. Add Preston Warren's name to the list of Wildcats working out in order to dominate in 2020. Get ready Oak Ridge fans the Wildcats are on a search and destroy mission.
  6. The choice at East has been made. Now will he accept?
  7. Yesterday
  8. How about this: Season starts one month later than normal Only play region games (probably max of 7 games) Nobody has an "off" week Then start the playoffs based on region results Yeah, it's not perfect, for one thing not all teams have the same # of region games. But you have to hope that someone at the T$$AA is at least contemplating some kind of plan.
  9. Per Bernard Childress, the spring fling will be June 9-12, 2020 if we are permitted to play.
  10. I have some issues with it. First, we need to have caution and precaution right now. I agree that we need to keep our distance from people and limit where we go and what we do. But it is not for the government to force upon us, nor is it for the government to shed the Constitution for 'our own good.' As a matter of fact, the founders laid it out so that the government couldn't tell us what was for our own good but to lay out our rights. Rights that didn't come from government but were given to man from higher above. If we give up these rights just for now, will we get them back? Certain rights were taken during the Great Depression and both World Wars and most were given back. Some were not. It happened again after 9/11 when president Bush started a program of spying on our calls and emails. He said this would be given up but for now was a matter of our own security. These measures were important, I agree, but they were not given up. It still goes on. With this requirement by the Governor, one that people are urging the President to mandate as well, it feels like we are willingly - although slowly - allowing room for the republic to turn towards tyranny. Something the founders tried to prevent. I know that isn't the case here. But what is to say that sometime down the road something else happens, and you know something else will. What is to prevent the government from taking more and more rights and not giving them back? When we allow a little here, what is to prevent them from taking a little more there? All for our own good of course. /Soapbox I do think though that this is a tricky situation when you do have people that do not take cautions and put others at risk. How do you stop it, but not infringe? "Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Benjamin Franklin
  11. What happened at Chester?? Howard was there 1 season.
  12. With Shaw leaving this late in the process and taking all 3 of his boys, can’t see this being a job many people want. Does Coach Kevin take back over the program? Do they give it to another assistant? Any other names of interest? My son thinks a lot of his team mates will now focus on football. Terrible timing for our program!
  13. Republic has dropped football. Will there players try to go to their zoned schools now or be "influenced" to attend elsewhere?

Welcome to a new feature that we at TOM are very proud of, the High School regional rankings. For the next couple of weeks, we will release rankings of eight different regions that will cover the entire nation. Why is this needed, you may ask? These rankings will allow us to focus more attention on wrestlers from around the country that could be considered overlooked at this time. With talent clustered in certain areas of the nation, there are plenty of quality wrestlers from outside those “power-states” or regions that may get slighted. And don’t worry, we’ll have rankings for those areas too! Our fourth installment of the regional rankings will focus on the Southeast Region. This area will include wrestlers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. For these rankings and all others, only wrestlers that competed in the state tournament series (aside from Ohio) will be considered. They will only be ranked at their weight from the state tournament, as well. This will only include high school wrestlers, even if their state allows seventh and eighth graders to compete at the high school level. Also, wrestlers from private schools will be counted in the state of their school, not their home state. Once all of our rankings have been released, they will be found here. So, with all of that out of the way, enjoy the Southeast Regional Rankings! Weight/Rank Name School Grade State College 106 1 Spencer Moore Walton-Verona So. Kentucky 2 Nick Corday Baylor School So. Tennessee 3 Kai Owen Tampa Jesuit So. Florida 4 Cole Hunt Dalton So. Georgia 5 Mark Samuel Laney So. North Carolina 6 Cooper Haase Kissimmee Osceola Fr. Florida 7 Hayden Whidden Lake Gibson So. Florida 8 Blaise Albarado Thompson Jr. Alabama 9 Matthew Eberly New Kent Fr. Virginia 10 Peter Henderson McAdory Jr. Alabama 11 Trevon Gray Oscar Smith Jr. Virginia 12 Reese Jones Ola So. Georgia 106 is a strong weight class that features the only wrestler in the region that’s ranked in the top-three nationally at their respective weight in #1 Spencer Moore. Spencer rolled to his second straight Kentucky state title, finished sixth at the Super 32 and earned a spot on TOM’s All-Sophomore team. #2 Nick Corday also was among the top 20 in the final rankings, while #3 Kai Owen spent a bulk of the year in them. The two squared off at the Prep Slam and it was Corday who prevailed 2-1. #4 Cole Hunt and #5 Mark Laney both finished the year unbeaten and claimed state titles.

  15. Well now that Republic has officially dropped football and the new Green Hill High School is taking their schedule for the year, how does that effect the region standings for the fall? Too late to add a team to the region this year.
  16. Here is a snip out of the Guv's shutdown order - is the reasoning behind this order troubling to anyone else? I guess it's not martial law if you call it something else. “Over the last few weeks, we have seen decreases in movement around the state as Tennesseans socially distance and stay at home,” said Gov. Lee. “However, in recent days we have seen data indicating that movement may be increasing and we must get these numbers trending back down. I have updated my previous executive order to clearly require that Tennesseans stay at home unless they are carrying out essential activities.” Data from the Tennessee Department of Transportation analyzed traffic patterns for March 2020. While safer at home measures and further restrictions on businesses showed a steep drop-off in vehicle movement from March 13-29, data beginning on March 30 indicates travel is trending upwards, again. The Administration also analyzed data from Unacast to understand cell phone mobility and determine movement trends among people. Unacast indicates the movement of Tennesseans is trending toward pre-COVID-19 levels. “The month of April stands to be an extremely tough time for our state as we face the potential for a surge in COVID-19 cases,” said Lee. “Every Tennessean must take this seriously, remain at home and ensure we save lives.” During the news conference Thursday, Governor Lee strongly urged everyone to stop panic buying and hoarding of groceries, reiterating that our existing food supply chain will allow for everyone to shop normally. “We need you to understand that staying home is not an option, it is a requirement,” said Lee.
  17. "On Wednesday, governors in Alabama and Georgia announced that, due to concerns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, school systems would remain closed for the remainder of the semester, thus ending all spring sports for those states' main athletic associations" The count is up to 11 states that have cancelled sports. Indiana closed yesterday. "However, with concerns continuing to grow, spring sports seem less likely to be played and Childress added that now the TSSAA is even discussing an abbreviated football season, as well as other fall sports, should the spread of coronavirus remain a concern into the summer." Hope dims for prep sports in Tennessee to be played this spring due to coronavirus pandemic
  18. Every athletic director that feels as if he/she can get away with dropping a sport will do so and use the virus as an excuse. This is why it's imperative that ALL sports other than football & basketball fundraise like crazy to endow the scholarships for their sport. Over the past ten plus years I have been preaching to anyone that will listen that the very survival of NCAA D1 Wrestling will be based on money. If a school has 9.7 scholarships endowed and the monies cannot be used for anything but wrestling the school will not drop wrestling. Some wrestling programs have even taken this one step further and are now working to endow the coaching salaries which is very smart.
  19. I would think the AD could schedule.
  20. Looks like Green Hill is stalling as long as they can because of the possibility MJ gets to play in the tournament in May. Probably did not want to put Coach Allen in the position of having to answer questions about a new school and team when he is still coaching at another school. With that being said you wonder who is doing the scheduling for next season with no coach in place.
  21. https://www.timesfreepress.com/news/sports/preps/story/2020/apr/02/hope-dims-prep-sports-tennessee-be-played-spring/519765/#.XoaCtYT9Rnc.twitter ^ From that Hargis man in case you missed it.
