  1. This will be a rare instance of me starting a thread on another school. Riverside deserves some attention, and due to the "Tyner ram train blah blah blah" windbags on the blue cross bowl thread, they likely aren't gonna get it unless they win. So in case they don't.. Last 5 seasons, including this year: 52-16 record. A 14-4 playoff record (.778 winning percentage!). 2 quarters, 2 semis, and 1 championship game. They've knocked out Lewis multiple times, Waverly, Mt Pleasant and Huntingdon. Most of the time these guys are traveling to upper seeds, and winning. EIGHTEEN PLAYOFF GAMES IN 5 SEASONS. Their two trips to semis they lost to the eventual state champ- Peabody and Westview. Averaging a 10-3 record over the 5 seasons, and pretty quietly. They just do their thing. I think they deserve some respect. God knows the 2019 and 2021 games almost killed me. But you have to tip your hat when it's due It's due

  2. Bruce Lamb helped lead another small town team that had "no chance" to a state championship and raised the gold in the end: the 2005 Livingston Academy Wildcats. Their offensive leader? Wilson Cates, who is an offensive assistant at Clay. Gimme the Bulldogs! Also, you'll be able to rob a bank in Celina Friday. Ain't no way anyone stays home for this one.

  3. Congrats to both teams on great postseason runs. East Nashville had to win at Waverly, at Smith County, and at Covington. Pearl-Cohn had to win at Lexington and at Haywood. Good Luck to both teams next week at the State Championships.

  5. I suspected this was coming as the clock wound down in Clarksville in week 11. Maybe earlier than that. Coach Watson and his whole family are just super people, I've loved them from day 1 back when the announcement was made in December of 2018. I'm thankful to call them friends. I'm also thankful for the positives he brought to Gallatin. He did some really good things. Unfortunately the nature of the beast when coaching at most high school programs that have had any kind of success, if you don't win you don't stay. That's just how it works. We want to wish him and his family the very best at where he lands.

  6. Fayetteville was the best Class A team I’ve seen this year and McKenzie beat them by 2 at home so I’ve got to believe they are just as good obviously. Clay is a huge underdog in this one. No one will expect them to be in the game so they won’t have anything to lose! They have athletes all over the field that much is for sure. For those of you that don’t know about Clay County I’d do my research. They had one of their own playing on ESPN tonight for the Tennessee Vols basketball team as a starter! This small school is no stranger to championship games. Most of these boys have one state championship ring already from the hard court in 2021’. So they will show up regardless of how big of an underdog they may be.

  7. Part 2. I'll summarize what I said. Tyner is the beneficiary of a terrible East this year and has beaten a bunch of bad teams and several mediocre ones. They haven't had near the competition that Riverside has, nor the consistency for the last 5 years. Tyner's playoff wins have been over average teams (minus East Robertson), and the 7-5 York team they beat in the semis might not have been a playoff team in several other regions. Tyner fans are super-sensitive to even objective analysis, and believe they should be able to rant and rave about how great their team is, and if you say even one negative it's racially motivated. That's the truth and everyone here knows it. There is no profanity or hashtag spelling in this post.

  8. There are some names that have been thrown out that I just question. The popular name seems to be Wes Inman. But why?? 4-7 and 6-6 does not excite me as a head coach. I know some of his “buddies” are gonna push for him but I see no reason to think this is a homerun hire by any stretch. Just because you have Gallatin ties or played for coach Short does not mean success here. Don’t be shortsighted on other possible candidates.

  9. Haven't we learned our lessons? Yes, on paper, McKenzie has the advantage, but Clay has a lot of what paper can't measure, heart. I know it's cliche, but those kids don't have any quit in them, and that will keep them in the game and possibly give them a chance to win. And, they'll be playing with a rather large chip on their shoulder due to all the predictions. Last year SP had no chance. Three years ago, Fayetteville had no chance. This year, Clay doesn't have a chance. I'm gonna leave it to the boys on the field

  10. Clay county is going to DOMINATE McKenzie. McKenzie has been overrated this entire season and played practically no one. Clay has easily had the toughest 1A schedule in the state. I’d be surprised if clay doesn’t run through McKenzie by at least 3 touchdowns

  12. Not disagreeing with most of that, however I would say player develop (technique, not being “soft”, etc.) falls on the staff. Beech doesn’t have a huge line by any means, however they have a great offensive line coach and a great workout program. They are taught a system at both Beech and Oakland. They become better football players over four years. They develop camaraderie in the programs. That isn’t talent. That’s coaching and culture. I would argue that Gallatin hasn’t had any of that in a number of years.

  13. Tyner has a good team. Tyner beats McKenzie by 2 td’s just looking at how things would match up. Tyner has a monster D line and great speed And that’s not fair to McKenzie to make that fantasy matchup prediction because they have a good team but Tyner is just that good IMO

  17. Great heavyweight battle there. Good to see Lamar Brown get a shot at a title. Biggest difference with these two programs, is there’s one coach you would love for your son to play for, and one you wouldn’t. Figure that out as you want.

  28. You always need to look at POP's timestamp. He has a Jekyll and Hyde type thing going on that usually happens in the wee hours...probably caused (as was the good Dr.'s) by drinking some sort of potion. He "transforms" from IPOPU2022 into IPOPOFF2022.

  29. I'm an outsider too, and I think the answer is both. From what I know, some well-heeled Lipscomb people put their money where their mouth is to build a top notch football program...they questioned why as a faith-based school with similar enrollment numbers they couldn't be BA or CPA. Whatever your feelings are about him, there is no denying that Dilfer has done an incredible job there...it's not just the commitment. They lost what looked like most of their best players from last year and are a lot better this year. I read the article about the Spillman kids...pretty amazing, those kids were bound for LA whether they were athletes or not, they just happened to turn out to be incredible athletes. My son has played sports against Kaleb Beasly his whole life...he could have just as easily ended up at Ensworth or BA, but chose LA long before Dilfer really had it going. Pretty sure the High kid is a homegrown LA kid. So that's a bunch of their best players right there that aren't exactly recruited kids from all over. Dilfer has made them real high level recruits. I don't care for a lot of the comments Dilfer has made to have come and gone in 4 years, but he's an incredible football coach. He will not be easy to replace, even with a big financial commitment.

  30. Teachers did leave for Liberty Creek. Coaches have left for Beech and White House Heritage. Liberty Creek only took 100 students from Gallatin High School. The growth was towards Hendersonville 10 years ago, there is nothing left to develop in Hendersonville. All the growth is towards Gallatin now. Look at all the land around Liberty Creek and Beech, acres upon acres. All that is owned by individuals not willing to sell to developers. What is getting sold to developers? Everything down 109. Look at the statistics released by the county. Gallatin has come in dead last in testing amongst every academic category. You don't have to paint a bad picture when the picture is out in the open for everyone to see. Hendersonville had 1600 students what issues have they had? Same with Beech. Station Camp had 1700 students in 2017. There biggest issue was losing kids to Pope, but Gallatin keeps every kid they have so why are they performing poorly academically and in every sport? Why are kids wanting to transfer out? Obviously Gallatin doesn't control teacher pay... that is a Sumner County issue. But every Gallatin fan runs away every coach they get, and that is not a Sumner County issue. No Gallatin alumni wants that job anymore. Every experienced coach in the area knows not to take that job. Watson isn't even leaving until after the spring semester = no teaching job open. How is Gallatin going to make a good coaching hire when they can't even hire somebody until the Summer? Gallatin has many issues and getting rid of one underperforming coach ain't the answer.

  32. Turn it all off, nothing but propaganda on all the major news outlets, its nothing more than professional wrestling, all these big politicians are on one side, they just yak backwards and forwards trying to divide us. They sit back and laugh at our ignorance. I never dreamed we had so many sheep needing someone to do their thinking for them, its pretty obvious, a lot of us will believe whatever news outlet we tend to listen to.Half the junk they say is really comical if it wasn't so dangerous. Most of us are really in the middle, this far right and far left stuff is for the birds.

  36. They do have D1 signee’s but he didn’t even say they would shutout PC and no one on these boards have even insinuated that. Go back and read your post and how he responded. You were asking if AC can collect themselves after watching PC go 80 yards? He responded with RB did that to them in the first half on a 96 yard pass. AC didn’t panic and collected themselves to play a great 2nd half, scored 29 unanswered points, and win the game. He even said “I’m not saying they’ll do that to PC”

  37. This is a great post general. 2019 was mine and @RHSPanther15’s senior year, we were freshman when Coach Johnny Frost came in and he and his staff have absolutely changed the culture at Riverside. I got to experience him for 4 years and he and his staff are great coaches and even better people. This successes is as well deserved as it gets.Being able to see the program get better as the seasons go on is amazing. I am needless to say pumped for this state championship game!

  38. This very well could be the year that Metro gets the gold ball as EN and PC compete for the rings this weekend. Both teams have a good chance to get wins where in the past, the odds were stacked against them. Alcoa showed they are beatable, and PC seems poised to get over the final hump this season. Love to see both teams win but i think ultimately, only one will get it done. Metro rivals during the regular season, but i am pulling hard for Nashville's public schools this week. Best of luck to both squads.

  40. Metro have the most undisciplined players in the state, metro coaches these days aren’t very good, metro coaches can’t win big games, metro football isn’t good anymore, metro will not win a gold ball no time soon, etc etc etc. Now look at metro with 2 teams playing for a state championship this week. EN and PC have some great coaches and players and having did an amazing job this season. PC lost their first 2 games and everybody counted them out. EN lost their last 2 games and everybody counted them out as well. Now look at them both playing for a gold ball Friday and Saturday.

  41. Absolutely he was. And I never said both teams weren't talking. The biggest difference was that 11 was doing it without getting in the face and making gestures. Football is just a different game from that standpoint in this day and time. Coaches and officials have to be diligent not to let it get out of hand. And I still stand by my assertion that much of it is brought on by the east of bantering through social media.

  43. Haywood seniors, you have a lot to be proud of. Over the past 4 years you have been an integral part of Tomcat teams who have: -won 48 games and lost 8 (winning 10 or more games each season) -won four Region 7-4A championships while going undefeated in region play -made four state semifinal appearances and one final appearance -set a season-record scoring average of 49.6 points per game (2022 season) I would like to thank you for your contribution to the annals of Haywood High football. Your talent, athleticism, and accomplishments have made it a pleasure to watch you play, and I’d like to wish you the best in your future endeavors. Haywood underclassmen, you also have a lot of talent and athleticism, and I’d like to thank you for your contribution to Haywood’s success. Continue to work hard in the off season, and I look forward to another exciting and successful season in 2023. I’d also like to thank Coach Smith and staff for your time and hard work. I know this will fall on deaf ears, but I would like to make a plea to the Haywood County School Board and County Commission. I am a strong believer in academics, but athletics also plays a huge part in the success of our students and our school. Athletics brings our community together. I know there is a lot of money to be spent on infrastructure with the arrival of Blue Oval City, and I know improvements need to be made to our school facilities. Please find a way to use some of that money to make improvements to our fieldhouse and athletic facilities (stadium). You won’t regret it.
