  2. This one hurts really bad, rest easy Mike, you were top of the class brother.. never goodbyes always see you laters! Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.

  3. Coach what makes it real difficult is thinking of those he left here that love him ! This forces us all to face our mortality ! Now I say we all go out and follow Mikes example ! Find something we are passionate about, put our best effort towards whatever that is and love it unconditionally, ask nothing in return ! God gave us that Molder Man and allowed him to touch everyone in different ways for a reason ! I know as a man I wanna “fix” everything and this just shows we can’t control much in reality except the legacy we leave !

  4. Joan's post on Facebook: "Well as most of you already know my amazing husband is now resting in the arms of our Savior . I am broken and really can’t even really put two thoughts together but please know I love you all and Mike and I have coveted all calls text and most importantly your prayers. I now ask you to please be in prayer for me and our family as we try to figure out how to do life without our rock! Mike Molder was an amazing, husband, father, Popa son abd friend . If you knew Mike you loved Mike ! He was funny, smart and loved with everything he had ! He has touched the lives of so many people and will be missed . I will always love you . This is not goodbye sweetheart this is I will see you again one day in heaven and we will never have to be apart again."

  5. Ok so most of you know who I am, Peabody Prides wife ! It’s so funny how this all started, Shane had a rough childhood like many,he suffered thru being homeless, drug addicted parents that physically and mentally abused him and some things I won’t put online ! We have made a few million lost it and are building back again, Shane right now is making no money on his current venture, he will though ! Funny thing is most would wallow in pity working 100 plus hours and dealing adversity, not him ! Really funny but he is a introvert for sure, Coach T has been a place where he loved to get peoples blood boiling at first, then he made a friend them another, it’s weird seeing him talk on phone or go hang out with folks, he’s guarded from his childhood ! Long story short , he didn’t help you guys @shockernation you helped him ! As broke as he is he had a meal he could do and it not cost him money “ right now” he knows how much Coach Quinn wants to change lives of his young Falcons, he knows what it’s like to have someone show they care, it changed his life as a young man ! Be able to make your kids smile made his day ! When your kiddos gave him those hand written notes he came back in store read them and teared up ! I didn’t find those awesome gift cards till later, he appreciated them but it was the cute notes and the appreciation of him as a man that got him in his feelings ! Things like this are just who he is and he believes when he is called home to be with the Lord that all that matters is who he helped! He truly is a great man ! Guys more than y’all know you have in your small ways changed his life! So to end my long wordy mush fest I say this , he carries a piece of paper in his pocket for 22 years and re writes it when it fades! I have suffered abuse I will be a shoulder to cry on or ear to listen to those that need me I have suffered homelessness I will lift my fellow man out of this with my last breath if needed I have suffered poverty I will teach those how to break these cycles thru showing caring for their life and teach them purpose ! I won’t be remembered as a famous man A rich man or the best man I will be remembered as a man, a average man than choose to help others and expect nothing in return ! Thanks for allowing me the space to write this GTF Rachel Malone

  6. Stunning news. Even with knowing someone is fighting, it's still a very difficult blow when they actually succumb. Real sorry for those who knew him. He mostly was frustrated with me and my smart mouth but it was all in good fun. He was very passionate about the game and all the communities. The world needs more like him, but God made the call. We will suffer, but he will not anymore.

  7. Best game in the Hole in probably a decade. Great performance by both teams, Owls are a totally different group from the beginning of the year. Just came up a little short. Walker Valley coach with a super classy gesture after the game coming over to the sidelines and giving the fans a thumbs up and waving. Best of luck to the Mustangs the rest of the year.

  8. It's comical for outsiders of places to constantly state , metro has bad coaching and so and so will do better , they have no clue .. the make up of some of these programs are set for failure , nick saban couldn't fix half these schools . It take special coaches to sit and deal with the headaches of metro schools -"and lack of support . You don't think Brunetti , woods, Broome , gore , and several metro coaches couldn't go to Blackman and Oakland and win ? Athletics are important up there and coaches get to coach . How many times a week do you think county schools have to feed, clothed, help parents , be a counselor/dad, be a psychologist, and all around provide daily for more than 50% of their team. I've seen both aspects of it , so you have no clue . How many kids missed practice cause they have to watch their brother and sister cause mom or dad has another job to provide . It is not the same . My hats off to those guys. When I went to a county school and all I did was coach and go home it was crazy, . So you continue to have all your answers behind your screen .

  9. I dont think a lot of people feel like Chris Jones is very imposing. I would bet a lot of posters would be mad enough after what he has done to the program to say it to his face.

  11. The TSSAA rule states it counts as a win for the team which does not postpone, or cancel, for seeding purposes. It does not count as a loss for the postponing team. I understand this rule is quite problematic for people that wish for us to have a loss on our record. My suggestion would be to… A. Just add it in their mind B. Contact TSSAA and lobby for a rule change C. Just enjoy having something to complain about. D. See C.

  12. You would be hard pressed to say a 10 game series between these 2 teams would be far removed from a 5-5 or 4-6 split. Very evenly matched talent wise. I was glad to be able to watch such a great High School Football game. Pivotal moments that defined the caliber of game it was from my perspective 1. LA opening drive setting the tone early, smash mouth football (for a spread team at least) 2. Oakland defense rising to the occasion at the goal line after a costly fumble on the ensuing kickoff, very gritty & hard nosed 3. Oakland defense reaping the fruits of their labor and getting pressure to get the scoop and score, relentless aggression 4. LA's almost quarter long drive to show they can play ball control with their spread attack offense, quite impressive imho 5. A little luck on a play that was poised to go nowhere and a couple of good athletes making a play to go up 14 6. A star being a star on a 75 yard house call, great individual effort and athleticism 7. Defensive halftime adjustment to keep LA bottled up in the 2nd half, Coaching Kudos right there 8. Lack of Offensive halftime adjustment, LA became predictable as game wore on & Oakland defense smelled blood 9. The pass interference call on the go ahead drive for Oakland, way to make the most of situational football 10. The absolute intestinal fortitude of Oakland to win it on the 2 pt. conversion. Straight gumption right there! 11. The desire of the LA offense to give themselves a chance at the 2 yard line with seconds to go. 12. The tenacity and the determination of Oakland defense to define the moment and finish the job, well done 13. In the end, a great exhibition of 2 of the best in TNHSFB, good show LA & Oakland, good show

  13. This one hurts bad. I really thought Mike was getting over the hump when he left us that message the other day. There are no words I have right now to properly express it but thank you Mike for being a part of my life for the past decade or so. Thank you for the show that brought hours of personal enjoyment and thank you for everything you did for Football in Tennessee. My prayers go out to Mike's family and friends.

  15. This is probably way off subject but I want to point something out! The friends I have made over the years on T are priceless. Sure we love to cut each other down and give each other a hard time on here but some things you just cannot explain? I have a near and dear friend who I met through this website and he’s from a rival region opponent Peabody. Words cannot explain the act of kindness that one poster recently proposed to me! A man from another community another school system called me last night wanting to feed our kids before Friday’s game with Halls? I was absolutely dumbfounded and so was Coach Quinn and others in the system here! This act of kindness won’t go unnoticed and I want the coachT world to know how great of a person you are! I value our friendship and enjoy talking with you often! It’s not about the food…just one person’s act of generosity and kindness! The legacy you will leave on this earth will be spoken of for years! Much love from the L @PeabodyPride

  17. Dear 6 pound 8 ounce baby Jesus..I've never heard so much silly whining from grown men. Ok...so here....... 6-1 TC vs 7-0 Gordonsville(with COVID win btw) There.....does that suffice? Make some of you feel better? Good Lord! TC isn't a program that "dodges" folks on schedule. It's an absurd argument.....period. Ask yourself and be honest with yourself..."do I truly think TC would be afraid to play UHS?" Come on now! Win the game? I dunno. Lose the game? I dunno. It's irrelevant. Must say I admire the TC hate lol. Now, can we please move on and discuss the topic of this thread? I think both teams deserve that respect!

  18. If this thread is any indication, that one is going to be GOLD! Since it's for gold, TC will win. For those who are harping on the TC - Upperman NO CONTEST, get a grip. Ya'll do realize that Coacht and other websites don't get their records and results from Blake Satterfield. TC has no say in how the records are reported, regardless, they haven't lost on the field, yet. About Friday's game, it will be a tough one. Both teams can be explosive, yet they've shown some inconsistencies. Defensively, both teams are solid. I don't expect a high scoring game at all.

  19. Geno what kind of mess is this? Nobody said the sos Jones man couldnt coach. The guy came in begged for the job told that Hargis man it was his dream job money wasnt a problem at all and then left in the middle of the night on a bunch of 14-18 year olds that believed in him after only coaching one game. Get out of here with your mess.

  20. Geno Geno Geno, cuz cuz cuz. You know I do agree with several statement you made about real coaching in the past 20 years. Also, when I seen Chris’s offense live and the way he called plays on offense and defense, the way he practiced some thing but never practiced other things, I was real excited because I thought man this is fast, we are in extraordinary shape, we run, we throw, everybody is playing multiple positions, and Chris is a genius of a coach. I remember him saying in his glorified interviews at the Jasper Highlands and other locations that he was ready to slow down basically from the pros and return to his hometown and coach the young kids and mentor the even younger kids and bring excitement to the community. He said, like all the other posters are telling you he said, that this was his dream job after being away for 30 years. When asked if money, meaning the difference between the pros and a 1A small county public high school, was a concern he blatantly said NO. Now I know he worked his butt off getting here late spring without getting paid, but he knew that going into the job. He said NO problem. Then Covid hit during the early season and he hadn’t even worked his first month at the school as a teacher therefore hadn’t been paid yet, but these were all unforeseen incidents that affected every teacher. Again, money was NO problem. If Chris was here I’d tell it to his face but you know what he isn’t even in the country. So he tells the kids then leaves immediately and never looked back. He had this big interview set up like you would get from the pros teams on ESPN. You know what?? Also he met with the community, the parents, and the fans. He quit on ALL of us, even you Geno. Whether you see it or not he did. None of us are saying out of the past 4-5 coaches that he was the worst. You keep throwing up all these feeling you’ve had about Grider & Co for years. I didn’t like alot of Grider’s ways either, but he didn’t quit on those kids. If it was about money and the opportunity came up, then why lie to get the high school (dream) job? Did he not takes tours of the facilities before getting the job? Everybody knows him and Vic Grider didn’t see eye to eye, but neither did you and Grider. Yet you seem to be in Jones front pockets. Hmmm sounds like to me there is a little hatred maybe stemming from the glory days back in 1981-1985. Just saying. Plain and simple, regardless of reasons, he quit on those young men who over a very should few months looked up to him. That’s hard for anyone, but especially for some 14-18 year olds. BTW to any post that got an “upvote” the last couple pages it was mostly me. Thank you all for supporting our kids.

  22. I was sent this message today via screenshot. Normally I just ignore critical posts on this forum:however, I feel it is necessary to let the readers know what the “Creamsicle Crap” is. 3 years ago I began doing a Creamsicle Race during halftime allowing students to run against “THE CREAMSICLE” who was Robbie Lotz. It turned into a fun event involving the student body. I would give prizes away to the winner. In late July this year The Creamsicle’s wife (Kayla Lotz) lost her battle with cancer at the age of 33. Instead of just sending flowers or something like that I decided I would do something involving The Creamsicle Race. So I had Kayla Lotz Memorial Creamsicle shirts made. At lunch the week of home games I sell them to students for $5. When a student purchases one they get a ticket. On Fridays I draw 5 students out to race against the New Creamsicle. Anyone who beats the Sicle gets to come back on Senior Night and race. Whoever wins that race gets $1000 in cash in memory of Kayla who was a huge fan of the CREAMSICLE RACE. I take offense to this being called “Creamsicle Crap.” Anyone who would like to discuss this with me can call me at (865) 621-3065. thanks AD SCOTT CUPP

  23. Here it goes! Prides 2 cents! Means nothing but your getting it , I have seen these Falcons behave horribly last year multiple times and this year once ! These young men are growing as people and men daily, yes they lost to a 3 time GoldBall winning team with the best coaching staff in the state, and did it with class ! If only winning games was Quinn’s agenda then he wouldn’t be a coach ! This guy has a bigger job than winning a game , if you don’t truly understand what a high school coaches job is them just stay silent ! Quinn has Trenton respect ! He’s breaking the toxic cycles in some of these young men’s lives, that’s more important to your community than a GoldBall!!!!!!!!

  24. I’m a numbers kind of guy. So let’s take a look inside the numbers. Lewis Co. is 30-36 all time in the playoffs. That means they win about 45% of the time. They have made it to the semis 2!times. Once in 1979 in the old 3 class days and again in 2013 when they were actually in 3A the largest classification they have ever been in. Now on the opposite side Page is on 16-22 in the playoffs. That’s about half as many wins and less of a winning percentage. Also they have made it to semis 3 time and all as a 3A team. They are now 5A. So the numbers would indicate that they are not as competitive as Lewis co cause they don’t get to the playoffs as much and win less when they get there. Also it shows that they are not good enough to compete in the higher class that they are currently classified for. Anyone wanna take offense to Pizzatard just remember this post and how pathetic his team is. Amen.

  25. I really expected Alcoa to be the last fanbase to be making excuses and complaining about refs. You’re not going to continue running through teams constantly and it’s good to be tested. You all got more penalties tonight because you were a lot more undisciplined than West was. I have absolutely zero issues with Alcoa and have a lot of respect for their program as well as Coach Rankin. When you look at it from a non-biased and neutral view then you can see that nobody was trying to railroad the tornadoes.

  26. Got a call this afternoon with the terrible news. I sure do hate to hear this. I had some good times with Mike back in the day when his son played for cascade and had a lot of battles with Jo Byrns. He didn’t care for me early on but we became good friends for a time. Time went on and we didn’t talk much anymore once regions realigned and he started doing the radio thing. I’ll remember the good times and he’ll always be one of my favorites from coacht! I’ll be sure to do my part to carry on his passion for high school football. We both loved 1A football the most! Thanks Mike!!!

  28. Please use a better example for a coach that Dilfer. He is not all you think. Offer him some serious money and father Ryan can have him. As for me I will take a coach McCadams anyday and I am sure many real Lipscomb fans would also. Dilfer is buying a program with recruits and coach mac built a program with class. Lipscomb has no class now and that starts at the head man. He has to be the focal point of the program. Games are won with leadership, sweat equity along with really hard work and that starts at the very top and Dilfer is none of these.

  30. Ole RIP and a couple of my hired hands reached out to some of them TSSAA Gents to get the official ruling on this topic that you seem to bring up every other hour. The ruling is if a team has to cancel because of COVID and it is a NON Region game, that team gets a NO CONTEST and the other team gets to count a WIN. If the team has to cancel and it is a REGION game, the team that had to cancel gets the L and the other team gets the W. So with that being said, take your W and TC will take a....well NOTHING (No W or L). Call it scared, call it running, or call it a Pandemic Mastermind...BUT Please move on. Maybe if Dana coached football, you guys would win a State Championship! Toot Toot!!!!

It’s a cause for celebration. It is a storied moment that will go down in the history of your program. But, understand, when Trousdale beats you... It’s just another Friday night.

  32. OR effort and execution a lot better at Greeneville against a very good and fast defense, no penalties, over 100 yards running the ball, mostly in the second half and a score against a good defense, so I think the changes made by Coach Gaddis are working and will get better each week. Defensively, missed some tackles and let them make big plays in the first half. but their backs are blazing fast and if they get to the second level, hard to catch. Felt like OR had a shot to keep it close until the 10 point turnaround in the seconds left before halftime, missed FG and then a quick Greeneville drive to score and make it 28-3 at halftime. WIldcats didn't fold or quit and came back with a pretty good second half. Greeneville verified my earlier thought that they were the best team OR played this season, and they have to be the inside shot to win the 4A State Championship. OR moves on to Karns and Bishop, he is the real deal and has been getting 200-300 yards a game, so the onus is on the defense to contain and tackle in space, while the offense needs to move the ball and keep Bishop from getting it.

  33. Taking advantage of mistakes goes both ways, such as the roughing the passer and the fumble already mentioned, along with some other things. Both teams were a little banged up. We're missing two 3 year starters on the line as well. When it's all said and done, Claiborne was the difference tonight. Burnley is just as effective as Calhoun except for passing, and let's face it, how much does that really matter at TC. All in all, I like the way most of our boys responded, and I would've made some different decisions, but I'm not the one making those decisions.

  41. I just would like to see Powell totally dominate a team. Even in the games that they have scored a lot of points, it never seems like they step on another team's throat. They have all the talent in the world and should be able to do this. There is absolutely no reason why a team should score on them with the front 7 they have and the skill players on the back end. Although they are much improved from the start of the season (I went to their jamboree... yikes), I have always said that if Powell had a solid DC that they would be in great shape and could compete for state titles with the talent they have on the roster. I think the current guy is "okay" but if they had a stud defense (like they should, because of simple 5A offenses) that they would be playing into deep November every year. Regardless of the experience of the OC (which is very little), he has the talent to bail him out on a weekly basis. Outside of those two and Lowe, the rest of those coaches are just towel wavers and glorified hype men so they are somewhat irrelevant in the conversation, I suppose. Again, this is just what I have gathered from the footage I have viewed so far this year and in previous years.

  42. You're a real tough guy talking ish about high school kids.........they laid down? You're pathetic. And there's nothing to dispute. I learned a long time ago that you can't argue with an idiot, which you clearly are. I tell ya what, go to today's practice and introduce yourself to the Forrest coaches. Let them know that you know way more about their team then they do. Do you not want them to succeed? I'm sure they'd love the help of the resident football guru. What ya scared of? Do it. Won't hurt to try. But of course you won't, because you're a typical cowardly internet troll/tough guy!!!!!! AKA a clown.

  43. Revelation 21:4-6 KJV [4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. [5] And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. [6] And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. So saddened by this news. Prayers for his family and all those who were close to him. May the peace of God in Heaven be with each and everyone during this most difficult time.
