  1. The yearning for enlightenment has been an incessant companion, fueling an insatiable thirst for knowledge and understanding. Given your extensive coverage of football and the apparent breadth of your expertise, I am inclined to seek your esteemed opinion on the matter: who, in your estimation, emerges as the favored candidate? Furthermore, since the mantle of head coach has been vacated, upon whom would you bestow the mantle of leadership?

  2. Yeah. Worst kept secret in this coaching cycle. He wants to watch his son play next spring at Mississippi State. And good on him.

  6. The individual in question appears to engage in prolific posting without a discernible purpose. It is my conjecture that, in offline interactions, they derive considerable satisfaction from their own verbal expressions.

  8. Florida tried urban/rural split two years ago. 4 urban classes, 4 rural classes. Didn’t work. Next year they will have 7 regular classes, 1 urban class for small schools only.

  9. I think this is a good move for them. Bring an experienced coach who is familiar with the program and the kids, so as to keep off season work going without interruption, and be able to prepare for next season, as far as further penalties, I believe the TSSAA said that the fine and game forfeits would be all. This is good damage control and good that it was done promptly.

  11. Bounder, you are correct. And it is so easy today. As a civilian today, I can check my 6th grade grandson’s grades in real time. 46 years ago as a young head coach, I knew who were my weak students and would do a weekly check. A decade and 1/2 later as an administrator, I would ask guidance for attendance, and grade reports as I did my own discipline reports. 5 years later I could run all those reports in a few minutes. today Text one the Secretaries and they can create a red flag report only printing the names with D’s and F’s or attendance and discipline issues. You are not even dealing with a whole team. The only problem with modern technology is someone who might not want to know.

  15. There's going to be more fallout from this. It's not over. A criminal investigation is also underway. Additional school counselors have been fired. As far as coach flip flops is concerned, a lot of people knew he was flirting with disaster. He was recruiting failed athletes from other schools. Grades and discipline issues that got otherwise good athletes kicked off other area teams were playing at CHS. Grades, addresses or transfer rules be dam ed. It was just a matter of time. It's a culture issue at the school. I've heard an assistant coach and teacher for another sports team was let go for not breaking up a fight on campus between 2 girls. Supposedly he's only there because of coach flip flops, they're close. That guy's kid, who's a great athlete in the school, will probably transfer out to. There's just so many layers to this . I'm not sure the director of all Anderson county schools doesn't get bit by this somehow. He's the one who wanted, pushed for the principal at Clinton in the first place. He initially denied anything had been uncovered when a local station broke the story. He had to back track his statements. It's ugly in Clinton right now folks. Add in the fact that there's such a huge rivalry with ACHS across the river, it makes it bitter for clinton fans if they say anything. Especially given the dominance that ACHS has had over Clinton for 20+ years in almost everything.

  16. It must have been bad then. I may not have been there for that one. I was at Bean Stadium when Jasper had the Pirates 35-0 in the 2nd qtr and Vic had to tell Ross that they had to cut the stadiums power off because of a fire on a power pole many blocks away in the pouring rain lol. Even tried to postpone the 2nd half. What few Pirate fans were there took the opportunity to sneak out at halftime under the cover of darkness.

  18. I’ve noticed he uses that military card quite a bit. Just cause you served in the military doesn’t exonerate you from doing stupid deeds. I served 6 years in the US military, but I’ve done quite a bit of, and continue to do, a lot of dumb shi$ in my life.

  22. Everyone in Clinton knew that they sold out to win at all cost. The Clinton community saw what coach Keith was doing bringing in players. They knew something fishy was happening but was holding their breath that the dam didn’t break. Unfortunately, it broke big time. There’s a reason the principal resigned as soon as this broke, he knew what was about to come out and no doubt he was involved in the grade changes by pressuring the credit recovery teachers. I’m sure he was feeling the pressure of meeting graduation rate plus he wanted football to win. The Clinton football program felt the pressure to win in football especially with the success the school across the bridge was having. I’m sure Clinton always felt like they had to measure up to AC. I’m sure there is some fine teachers and staff at Clinton High School, but unfortunately the greed and jealously sunk the ship at Clinton High School and the football program. It will take years to shake this situation and move forward. The next head coach will have a nightmare to fix and try to undo the damage. I bet the coach will try to burn it to the ground on his way out. He knows the whole story along with principal who resigned. Staff members careers were shattered because of this. Best of luck, to Clinton High School as they move forward.

  29. I would think most private school kids are “white collar”, so if going by that, sure. Also, I wouldn’t call Farragut kids very blue collar, and they’ve had some really good ones. I do understand where Sheriff and ORC are coming from though. At the end of the day it’s really about the individual. I’ve played with some super tough kids that folks would consider having grown up in pretty prominent families.

  30. My esteemed interlocutor, regrettably, I find myself bereft of your contact information. Moreover, it behooves me to clarify that I do not currently occupy the esteemed position of coach. Were I to hold such a position, rest assured, trepidation towards yourself and your team would find no foothold within my disposition. Permit me to opine that Gallatin's achievements appear, in my estimation, notably devoid of commendable accolades, save for the distinguished presence of Volunteer State, where my progeny, with admirable distinction, attained scholastic honors. Securing the contact information of the newly appointed head coach upon their assumption of duties should pose no undue challenge for me.

  31. Sheriff, I know for a fact KCHS has help on the way. Their incoming class 2028 is LOADED! Many won't believe it, but KCHS is in process of building something special. Their 2028 class are straight DAWGS! if they can add another complementary class back to back its gonna be trouble. You heard it here first.

  32. Perhaps it is within the realm of possibility that the comprehension of my discourse, both by yourself and others, may be circumscribed by the boundaries of intellectual acumen. Might one contemplate this notion from such a perspective? Allow me to clarify that my intent does not lean towards disparagement, save for instances where provocation is directed towards myself or the esteemed troupe of the Trousdale County Yellow Jackets who proudly find domicile upon the hallowed grounds of CREEKBANK. In contemplation of the candidates under discussion, it is conjectured that individuals such as Gregory, Woodmore, Vetetoe, Eden, Hackett, and Cothron may emerge as contenders. Regrettably, it is deemed improbable that Shoulders shall express interest in this pursuit. Speculation arises regarding the potential candidacy of BJ West, albeit the implications of familial ties with Lafayette introduce complexities to such a scenario. The enigma of Dr. Clint's deliberations looms large, fraught with the weight of a formidable decision yet to be made.

  33. Might I inquire whether Gallatin has ever wielded significance worthy of consideration? I am inclined to redirect your focus towards matters more pressing, such as the welfare of your own football team, rather than ours. It is not without reason that you refrain from arranging future encounters with us.

  35. Eagleville hosting shows laziness on the part of the TSSAA and a complete disregard for the appearance of impartiality. Absolutely nothing against EHS. Its not their fault TSSAA is lazy. I understand EHS staff work the games at Eagleville, and they don’t want to miss the EHS games. However this isn’t rocket science. It would take less than 1 hour to cross-train EHS and RHS volunteers at the opposite sites. If Eagleville (or any host) makes the tournament, flip their game site and have the volunteers flip sites for the days their school plays at the opposite site. Magically the school’s fans would be present to watch the their kids play and the kids at least lose some familiarity and home field advantage. It takes almost no effort and is a ~15 minute extra drive.

  43. Gratitude abounds for Blake Satterfield, whose five-year tenure as the head coach and exemplary ambassador for Trousdale County and its educational system has left an indelible mark. His strategic leadership during playoff seasons was nothing short of remarkable. Anticipating that his future endeavors will be equally impressive. Perhaps the board members will refrain from undermining the incoming coach as they did in Blake's case.

  44. "Some student’s grades were changed to help them with college and sports participation, other students, who the administration deem undesirable and they “wanted out of the school” , were changed to remove them from the Anderson County School system." This has to be a massive lawsuit waiting to happen.
