7 pointsRUMORS FROM THE MARYVILLE METRO AREA * Shad is negotiating for a position as Night Assistant Manager at Happy Wang's Chinese Massage Parlor. * Passiveaggressive is confused with all the pressure on Opiate producers and would like his Congressman to have the pharmaceutical companies quit making diuretics because it creates more work cleaning the urinals. * Maryville H.S. will schedule a out of state nationally ranked H.S. team next season from Cali, Tx or Fl. Afterwards will hire a damage control team formally used by Hillary Clinton to explain the loss. * Maryville coaching staff will appear on 60 minutes to explain how with so many State Championships so few of former players end up on Division 1 teams and of those who do never make an NFL roster. * The Glory Club of overweight 30+ year olds that still wear their State Champs ring will be meeting at Bubba & Pearls Buffet Thursday night to reminisce about the glory days and discuss Gastric Bypass. * Rebelwoman will hold cotillion classes and the art of fine dining manners at the VFW on Hobbs Rd in Alcoa she requests attendees wear their best bib overalls and wear deodorant. * Greyrider will star in the Community Theater Actors Guild in the stage version of Broke Back Mountain. He will tell people "I just can't quit you" for months afterwards. I don't like repeating rumors so you better listen closely the first time. More as my sources report in.
2 pointsHonestly and speaking from the heart, I am glad Mr. Spradlin recovered. So many do not. A testament to his strength and fortitude. God bless him.
2 points@FridayMainEvent i think the second year illustrates that just because you're a large school doesn't mean you're going to have a good football team. Ultimately did this "study" to show that too many teams make the playoffs. either need to take less per class or have less classes. I personally think 4 blanket classifications across all sports for division I would be best.
2 pointsLol...I do too..but in reality, I don't care if it's a one point win..my motto is: "survive and advance"!!
2 pointsJust imagine how good #14 would look if he had #13 to go along with #8 on Offense . The Kid is ready .
2 pointsSeems like they made a good call here in the east.
2 pointsWhat you're seeing is the result of consolidating the community schools into two big schools and decades of repeated poor decisions by adults.

2 pointsI will trust you on this. Looking back at the handbook, it is not very clearly stated and can be very confusing. It is, however, completely unfair and stupid to determine three-way tiebreakers like this. Relying on non-region games is awful!! Region standings should all be determined by Region games! Period. Use points against vs. tied teams first....then, use total points against the entire region if needed. That will almost always break the tie. Fairness and common sense...memo to the TSSAA! Hope we find out what Hillsboro will do for the playoffs....play at Vandy? at TSU? at Hillwood? who knows? Also, will TSSAA mandate they play the playoff "home" games on Friday night as they should? None of this stupid Saturday afternoon junk.
2 pointsI'll Clear everything up about the #3 Transfer. Byron Gillespie (Played at Greeneville from 93-96 and UTC afterwards) is Both Jordan and Jaevon Gillespie's Father. Mother has Legal custody of Jaevon. Byron Sold his house in Knoxville and moved his son to Greeneville so he could play his Senior year with his half brother and be coached by their Uncle Broderick Gillespie who is the ILB Coach at GHS. Cant blame a dad for wanting his son's to play for his Alma Mater, play together, and be coached by their uncle
