  1. I have a feeling if he doesn't do well him and the principal will be in trouble. I cant believe that this guy was the best they could find. It may be a long year. And hard to watch but i will still be there until i get run off for raising cain on the coach.

  2. Meigs and Jasper will both have good teams. It should be interesting in rounds 2-3 this season. Someone from region 1 or 2 is getting smashed in round 4 though.

  3. The new update for mobile phones is great! Thank you CoachT and IamOz (if he's still around) for doing what you do and giving all of us this platform. From across the country I'm able to keep up with my team because of you and I know there's many more on here just like me. Again thank you!

  4. I have no dog in this fight. I’m not a Powell or a Henry Co fan although I respect both. From reading the last few pages it appears you just made a casual statement to add to the conversation and HTV decided to cop an attitude with you. It’s a shame that people can’t have a conversation on this boards without being jerks to each other.

  5. Really would be interesting who the mastermind or the backer to this operation is. This is a story about a team who's coach got fired for going to take a whiz during a test and then the program slides into the bowels of ale for six long years especially after hiring that idiot from Chattanooga. Now we have a Transfer Portal on Steroids bringing in kids from everywhere. Somebody got to be stroking some checks somewhere or it's the one of the best coaching jobs I've ever seen because Powell is a place you want to get your kid out of not into.

  11. I'll start by saying that this thread is clearly biased. Both men are deserving of their accolades through the years. Gary Rankin = 453 Wins (395-45 from 1990-2020). 16 State Championships. 6 State Runner-Up Finishes. George Quarles = 250-16 in 18 Years. 11 State Championships. 4 State Runner-Up Finishes. Both men are terrific football coaches who have won at the state's highest level. I find it to be sad that some of you get on here and say "one can win and the other can only win if/because....." ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? In life people hate what they are most jealous of and at the end of the day Alcoa is a football program that people are jealous of when it comes down to it. People who say Rankin only wins because Alcoa has 6A talent playing at a 3A level need a history lesson. Rankin coached in 9 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAMES when he was the head football coach at Riverdale at the state's highest level. Rankin coached in Rutherford County before it became watered down with the additions of schools everywhere. He coached at the state's highest level before there was a public/private split. Saying that he "only wins due to talent" is stupid.

  14. Alcoa is not the same Alcoa of old with only the “small school” community talent to chose from. I sat in the stands for many games when they had to play a lot of their players both ways. It is not the same anymore. You have just as many skilled bodies as Maryville does and more than most schools 3A or 6A. I think Alcoa is a great team and I have a ton of respect for them until they cry “oh gosh darn we can’t compete with those big ole schools.” It doesn’t matter if you have 100 kids on your roster if they aren’t talented. If you have 11 on each side that have alittle bit of talent you are ahead of most schools no matter what class they are in.

  17. I get so tired of hearing people cry about recruiting on this site with no proof. It has gone on as long as I can remember. People will accuse with absolutely no proof. When you accuse of recruiting you are talking about all parties. Parents, kids, coaches, school admin. etc. it takes a real bum to get on here and accuse of recruiting and attack someone’s character with no proof behind an anonymous screen name. If anyone on this site ever has proof that someone is recruiting take your proof and turn it in. If not shut your pie hole and leave kids, coaches and all other ms alone.

  19. OK? What does that have to do with you assuming a poster is from Greeneville. He gave his opinion on a Greeneville thread. You keep that Big Target on your back because we are coming for you, especially with what we have come back and what Betsy Graduated. Don't forget Greeneville out gained Betsy by 107 yards in that last game and return all but one starter on O and 2 starts on D. Let me hear who you think is going to replace Hughes, Morton, Morganstern, Garland, and Erwin? Whoever step into their place will not be as good as those 5 who have started for Betsy the last 2 years

  20. I think part of what you said about Alcoa will be correct. They will be young but only on the defensive side of the ball. They lost a lot there. On the offensive side practically the whole line returns including the two mammoth tackles that will play college ball anywhere they want. The qb Buckles will likely win Mr. Football. Most of the Alcoa fans on these boards are very excited about their offense this year and will probably be better than last year. They defense will have to grow up quick but will be just as good as any other defensive unit in 3a. If they don’t win 3A with PC and Milan gone and a Covington team have graduated a TON, I will be shocked.

  26. Powell doesn't need nor want me to "defend" them. I honestly haven't talked to anybody there since early spring. Not going to go in to the "whys" other than to say sometimes people get burned one too many times and it's just time to move on. That's where I am. And as I said, I support young folks in sports at a lot of schools. I still have friends coaching at more than a few area schools. I want to see them do well, including Powell. A good sports program is a source of great pride for this community, and any community. I am simply not close to the Powell program like I once was for a lot of reasons. My issue is with the continual finger pointing, unsubstantiated charges, and petty jealousy that some on this forum have when it comes to Powell and it's transfers. And the irony is that most of that comes from supporters of schools who themselves have benefitted greatly from transfer students coming in to their own programs, but of course, their programs are as white as the virgin snow, so they couldn't possibly have done anything to skirt the rules in facilitating those transfers (rolling eyes here). But Powell is breaking every rule in the book, according to them. My issue is with the hypocrisy of those individuals. I can handle a lot of things, but hypocrisy isn't one of them. Walter Nolen is obviously a tremendous prospect. Just look at his offer list. And he is obviously going to be noticed by other schools during this move. A close contact tells me that all parties involved have been in dialogue with the powers that be in the TSSAA throughout the entire process to be sure that the rules and guidelines have been followed. With the family moving in to the Powell zone, by the book it's a slam dunk eligibility case. No different than if they were moving in from the Halls or Karns zone. And I really don't know what the parents job situation is, but some might be interested in learning that it's not against any TSSAA rules for parents to get new jobs when they move. What a concept! And especially in this day and time when pretty much every employer out there is begging for people to come and work for them. And as for the "grouchy ole man" charge, yeah, I proudly wear that badge. I have been around too long and have seen too much to put up with those who believe their schools are as pure as the driven snow, while another school is breaking all of the rules like nobody else ever has nor will. I've asked many times for specifics, but nobody wants to provide any. Yeah, shocking, I know. I use the ignore feature to my personal pleasure on this forum. I suggest that anybody who has issues with my direct and no nonsense style of dialogue do the same with me. I won't be offended in any way.

  30. Doing as well as possible. It's going on 3 years since my better half was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's. I haven't been to a game in two years, but thank goodness for Diamond Clear Media. Bubba and I are going to try to go to the jamboree, then I'll settle in with my Diamond Clear. There's just something about that night that makes you feel good about the start of the high school season.

  34. Wrong. Maryville "applied" to move up to the 32. It wasn't that a team declined and Maryville had to play up in the 32. When a team did decline, Maryville moved up. THEY CHOSE TO MOVE UP, unlike Alcoa. Maryville was 15 or 20 schools deep in the 5A. If any of those 15 or 20 had wanted to go up, they would have gotten priority over Maryville, but they didn't apply to go up. I agree that it was an effort to get the Rebels out of 6A and it didn't work. https://tricitiessports.com/tssaa-appears-ready-to-adopt-super-proposal-for-high-school-football-on-p71604-116.htm

  35. Thanks man. I agree we were better that day. 99% of posters thought it was going to be a mercy rule bc of what SP did to every other 1A team they played. My point was you don’t have to be better all season if are the better team that day. Good luck to y’all this year. I think we both have a really tough schedule. I’m hoping to see y’all in person against Milan.

  36. Stacmot, I love reading your post because you keep it real. I am a Dyersburg fan and agree with you 100%. The defense has a lot of work to do if the team hopes to make it out the 2nd round. We are notorious for doing well in the regular season only to get bounced in the first or second round of the playoffs. Hopefully Coach Decker being back in town on the defensive staff will help us with defensive adjustments and getting the kids in the right spots to make plays. Time will tell!

  37. Exactly. It’s a money maker especially for Alcoa. The Maryville game gate probably matches or beats all the other games combined.

  38. I will aree to some extent Barn,those 2 wins came against Grainger 2-8 and either Claiborne or CGap which also was a 2-8 team.In 2015 they scored a total of 13 points in 2 games and were scoreless in all the others and werent close to competing against any team all blowouts.So yes in the back of my mind I am saying "This is GB!"We are not a Sweetwater any time we play them we roast them and we are not Union County,we have scrimmaged them a couple times and beat their brakes off.What worries me a little is in 2013 we had a 3 way scrimmage with Polk and Union at Polk right before season, 2 of our best players didnt even play one was my youngest son who was a Sr had a bad shoulder at the time.Union had 1 series with Polk and 1 against us.Their kids were puking and whining the whole scrimmage and were in terrible shape.Next thing we saw was the whole team Coaches included loaded the bus and left!Just plain quit thats the part that bothers me.This fellow was their Coach at that time.Maybe things have changed and he has learned a little bit more over the past 5 or 6 years.We wont accept those actions here.So to say I'm worried yes I am!,Will I support our boys yes I will as I always have.This is a wait and see season.I cant wait to see what we have but we have another tough schedule as always.That first game against Boyd is gonna be a tough one to start with!!

  41. Dude just knows the Devil's little sister, Betsy isn't the top team this year. He's already making excuses an they haven't even lost yet lol. If he had faith in his team he wouldn't care about what other team's have because he would know what his boys are capable of. There's a reason this clown is on a Greeneville fourm. He knows what's coming...

  45. I think part of it was that everyone had heard all year that it was a lock for sp to win it. One assistant had made the remark that the only thing that would keep them from winning it all would be covid. The main thing that won that game for Fayetteville was winning in the trenches. The other thing and most sp fans that will be honest will agree with this: Coaching. Over the years sp has lost games that they probably should have won but poor play calling cost them. I will admit that it is a little satisfying knowing that Marion beat Fayetteville and they win a state title by beating sp (Did I say that outloud?)

  46. All you posters need to quit hiding behind a name saying Roy is Coach Stone. IT IS NOT HIM! Seriously, folks. Even Roy keeps telling y’all he isn’t him. So please just stop. If you know Coach Stone himself, then why don’t y’all just go see him face to face and call him Roy. Quit hiding behind names. Again, IM TELLING YOU, ITS NOT HIM!

  47. No offense to Murphy, but all he's doing is collecting information these staffs give him. This guy is putting himself out there covering the entire state (which is an impossible task). You don't have to agree with everything they say, but be grateful there are people like him and FME who make an attempt to cover TNHSFB, though they make no profit from it.
