6 pointsI go through this every week when preparing my show. The amount of programs that don't get their kids stats out there online is AMAZING! I also have a Mr. Football vote, but I use word of mouth as much as anything as a determining factor since I speak to so many Coaches and fans each year. The Stats are either unavailable or only reflect 1/2 of a football game in many instances. I'm not gonna reward a 3-7 team's player who racked up a ton of 4th quarter stats against the other teams two's while dominant team like Whitwell or Cornersville has kids sit out the second half. I really feel the TSSAA should create a committee of media involved STATEWIDE to determine these awards and have no bias to any particular area. Just my two cents.
4 pointsCalling a kid a "thug" based on some chit chat on an internet website is low class. I don't know the kid and you don't either. Bash coaches, bash programs, that's fine. In a society where kids are robbing and killing people I don't think a kid that needs an attitude adjustment deserves to be labeled a thug. You need to examine your own character.
4 pointsWhy’s everyone complaining I’ve won like187 $1000 gift cards this week
4 pointsYes they have a right to protest...but not at work! Too bad owners don't have a backbone. I have a right to wear shorts and a tank top, but not at work...they are at work and people PAY them to work, not "protest"...and exactly what are they protesting?? I honor God first and he's blessed us with freedom and a country that stands ready to help all others...that deserves to also be honored and respected
3 pointsNone of this matters to me but I know for a fact in Benton county each sport supports itself.Through the gate fundraisers or the Band running concessions for both the HS Jr,HS and minor league football I do not know how they do it a Waverly but what matters is the kids.Do they have what they need to play ball and prepare for success at their chosen sports?More importantly after they graduate are they prepared for life? I would say that the kids who played football the last 5 years at waverly will never have a problem with hard work, discipline or authority. The credit for that goes in no small part to Coach McConnell . Say what you want the guy is a winner A lot of folks on here talk tough but Wouldn't ever repeat the talk on here to any mans face much less Coach McConnell's
3 pointsMiddle TN Pole so Middle Tn is favored. Let’s see where they are in December
3 pointsTo echo Sells, great work EVERYONE... Thank you cbg. I am obviously biased but it appears that the Ironman is indeed synonymous with Blackman. Knowing there were proms and ACT's this weekend, along with wrestlers playing their second or third sport of the year, our numbers were awesome. Most of them probably don't read the boards but I want to recognize the ladies behind the scenes that make this event not only successful, but possible. YOU ALL ARE AMAZING. Shout out to Georgia, Kentucky, Alabama, and Virginia.. we enjoyed having you. Special thanks to John Salter for making sure every kid was able to wrestle, even though it meant starting late. We know that's not how you roll! To the TWF, 32 Ironman winners.. kudos. And finally, the refs. You all did a great job. No one will ever be happy... Thanks for stepping up! See you all next year!!!
3 pointsJust saw where Brayden Palmer is going to podium at FloNats! Huge accomplishment! I can’t find any other Tennessee guys on there but I know there are others who made the trip. Does anyone know how they all did?
3 pointsTalking about River? I made t a point to get opinions on the matter before hand. It seemed only fair to include him based on credibility. Not wrestling wasn’t his fault. He’s been injured. And this was meant to find out who the best of the best is at each weight. And you can’t have a list of Tennessee’s best heavys without him. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Lol
3 pointsThat was great. Much respect to Oakland staff and players.
