    Yeah, John, they could die from a drunk driver hitting them while heading to church on Sunday (actually better odds of that). Maybe we should wrap them in a plastic bubble and just admire them from a far. It's people like YOU sir that have driven teen suicide rates to reach an alltime high! Keep preaching your fear! The liberals are listening! Have a nice day.

    Health Department has been granted too much power folks. Make absolutely no sense to issue a 14 day MANDATORY quarantine! We now have Rapid testing where the results can be known in 1 hour! Simple solution here is to mandate Every player planning to participate in a game MUST produce two negative tests over a 72 hour period. If that happens, no reason to prevent them from playing! Am I the only person in this state that can use just an ounce of common sense???

    We need to make sure to pray for the driver of the utility truck as well. Their life has been forever changed and they will endure many days of hostility and blame. Not just from others but from themselves. Let’s pray God touches their life and somehow can give them the faith and a testimony that can point others to Jesus through this. We as a people including myself need to assign blame to tragedies. It doesn’t help, we all sin and fall short of the glory of God. I’m not trying to speculate why this happened, but I can tell you from experience from my former career, all directly involved in this scene will be affected deeply forever, including the person society tends to label, the “other driver”. Ephesians 4:31-32 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. 32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Thinking about myself I could spend a lot more time on Ephesians 4:31-32.

    So because you wouldn't take one player over them they're Mr Football worthy? Look I'm not about to talk down on any kids I'm sure they're fine players and most schools would love to have them. That being said if half of these kids wore a different uniform SP fans such as yourself wouldn't give them the time of day. Your fanbase has a horrible habit of thinking an accomplishment is magnified if someone does it with a P on their helmet. The facts are if you had 6 guys worthy of a Mr. Football nomination you wouldn't have an L on your record nevertheless one from a 2A (a very darn good one) with 1 Mr Football worthy athlete on their team. Simple as that.

    Times of tragedy and loss are frightening and difficult. I pray the Lord touches the victims, their families, the rescue and medical workers, and their community and allows them to have comfort and to strengthen their faith. Just know your brothers in Christ are praying for and mourning with you in this tragic time. Psalms 34:18 The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. John 14:24 Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    I saw a video of one of our boys score a touchdown on the Moore County side. He walks over to hand the ball to the ref by the pylon. There are grown men standing on the track 20 feet away screaming at him like they are going to come out there and fight him. And for what? What did this kid do to these grown men that would make it acceptable for them to treat him that way? And you yourself called us the ghetto/hood tigers after the first game and then later deleted it. We are not perfect but I have personally heard unprovoked racist and horrible things said to and about our boys at multiple places. These classless acts were from people wearing baby blue. People don’t like that they dance when the music is playing or try to pump up the crowd. People don’t understand a culture that is different than theirs so they automatically try to tear it down. It’s unfortunate thing our boys have to deal with. I am proud of them for not responding to the “adults” on the other sidelines.

    If nothing else, i've been blessed by this thread in seeing the number of God Fearing Posters we have on here. We all "hide" behind a screen name on here to talk trash on a daily basis and because of that we don't realize that behind the screen name is a real person. To see that many of you all are just like me, a sinner saved by God's Grace, is truly a blessing. Our community (TC), as probably most everyone's, is also experiencing some difficult times as several families are facing battles with the C word. Hartsville is coming together is a great way and I just pray that God uses each and every one of these situations to further his kingdom, spread his love and let his will be done.

    Time to set aside football for a bit and get in our bibles and do some old school praying. Got some folks hurting bad right now, need to pray ‘em up. I got some sure enough prayer warriors as I’m sure you do as well. Time to make a few calls and get them to work.

    What's all this garbage supposed to mean??? Demands for an apology when even the guy himself says that it may be false, race cards being thrown about, speculations about self imposed penalties and TSSAA probationary periods into future seasons... for what??? Here's what I already know to be the truth... Coach gets fired for poor performance, throws out the race card in the media, and rails against the entire system for being underhanded and him being the "victim". New coach hired with high expectations and much fanfare, but with a small segment still loyal to the former coach, and unhappy with the hire. Team gets transfers, plays well, and is on the brink of being the favorite to go to Cookeville. Allegations are made against the program, and TSSAA investigates. Also a trio of new accounts show up here throwing around rumors and claiming to have heard this junk "on the streets". Now for what I think... Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what the most likely scenario is here, but the great thing is, all everyone has to do is wait and see if Coach Diffee, the Milan administration, or the kids' guardian's have been untruthful.

    Despite all of the hardships we've faced in 2020, we still have plenty to be thankful for. I pray for clean, injury free games, and safe travels for all teams and fans pursuing their dreams of playing for the state championship. Good luck to all and Happy Thanksgiving.

    Nah, we're here. It's interesting reading this "Official" Maryville/Oakland thread that is about 90% Maryville fans arguing with Dobbins Bennett fans. The other 'Unofficial" Maryville at Oakland thread is 100% Maryville fans arguing with somebody from Alcoa. Meanwhile, us Oakland fans are enjoying our popcorn while you guys keep debating each other.

    To add to what you have mentioned, the TSSAA is blocking any streaming service that competes with theirs..... ridiculous! They want fans to sign up and pay for a service that is spotty at best. No commentators, it just follows the ball. This is a slap in the face IMO. I am all for just doing away the TSSAA and starting over with a true governing body that is slim and efficient in its practices. All the cloudy eligibility rules, and having AD's of school serve on the board is shameful.

    we say it so much its a cliche, but its so much more important than the game. without sounding too touchy feely, one hopes their competitive spirit and the collective prayers and support and love from their communities can count for something. it all comes from our Creator anyways. all good comes from Him. one of my fave scriptures is in Romans. Romans 11:36 (NASB) For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever. Amen.

    this is karma for that game. Powell thought they were big and bad, talked a load of crap, and taunted Beech during and after the game they were extremely unsportsmanlike toward Beech at the end of the game, something like i’ve never seen before. blatant disrespect and awful..AWFUL sportsmanship. as far as i’m concerned they got what they had coming to them. Have fun watching from the couch.

    Been meaning to post this but this old geezer has been hard pressed for time. Was originally going to post it in the MC vs SP thread but that one got out of hand pretty quick. I'm not trying to bring that discussion back up, so please don't restart it. This is a post actually giving SP credit. Motto, Sportman, and others have made good points for the reason of SP's continued success. Time for a little history lesson for you younguns and a refresher for you old farts. Since 1997, SP has had a total of 3 coaches. Vic from 1997-2012 and 2015-Current, Ross who never coached a single game, and Tim Moore 2013-2014. MC on the other hand, is a different story. Since 1997, there have been 10 different head coaches for the Warriors. At one point having 3 different HC's over a 4 year span (2005-2008). The year 2006 is when the first domino fell that has led to the gap between SP and MC. Not only did the Pirates arguably have their most talented team in school history, but the Warriors had their best crop of collective talent since 1995. The key difference is that SP and their administration/community was all in on football while Marion County was a school that was divided from the top of the administration and community. Every athlete SP had in their school was a part of their football team, while MC had 12 more athletes that could have made major contributions sitting in the stands on Friday night because coaches in other sports encouraged them not to play football and risk getting injured. The Pirates would then go on to have their best run of football ever while the Warriors would ebb and flow, reaching great success when Larry Ziegler, a former standout lineman for the MC state teams in the 90s and middle school head coach for the players of the 2012-2015 teams, was head of administration. Consistency is key and SP has done it not only in high school, but in the middle school and youth programs as well. With that type of consistency and success, your program is going to attract athletes from other schools. It's just the way it is. Marion County was getting kids from Stevenson and all over the Valley during our years in the 90s. I don't have anything against it, people want to be a part of success. Marion County lost some home grown talent to SP over the years and the same can be said about SP. The Warriors are definitely going in the right direction now and can hopefully consistently put together great seasons again. The Pirates are rolling right on schedule. The point is that SP has a great coach in Vic, who does an excellent job of surrounding himself with good assistants. Their community and school is all in on football from little league to high school. They do a great job of getting ALL of their athletes to participate in football. This old geezer has to take a break after all that, I think I'm going to be sick from giving you fellers all those compliments. Age has dulled the vigor in this old geezer but I will always have a hate in my heart for the orange and black. But I'm the type that has to call it like I see it and give respect on a job well done. Hope you all and Joe Byrns have a injury free game.

    Per my sources, Milan is self-imposing penalties for rules violations and hoping the TSSAA doesn’t levy more. The school is docking itself eight football scholarships over a two-year period and reducing recruiting visits, evaluations and communication after a nearly two-month investigation. More to come.

    A team has Covid and instead of a well I hope they all get better and good luck in the playoffs if you get to play.THIS is your response!VERY TYPICAL.I guess they will be cowards now also.Good gosh.I bet every kid on that team would just about cut a finger off to get to play all their games.You need to learn a little humility and you would think you already have from the past few years.
