  1. Bad enough that a team gets to host their own state tournament but they shouldn't have walk up music & strikeout sound effects unless they do it for all the teams..Should be ran as a neutral site.

  2. Stewarts Creek is in the tourney and aren't playing at their own field. I'll go on record as saying this should never happen at the state tournament. At least the championship is played elsewhere.

  3. We shall see my friend, but I see Rossview winning the team duals again with Knoxville Gibbs being close behind. Clarksville, Tullahoma & Cleveland should be good too but each of them lost some seniors who won a ton of matches. Cleveland does have some young talent coming up though from the middle school as does Maryville. The Maryville girls fielded one of the youngest teams in the state with mostly Freshman/Sophomore and in 2 years they will be really tough to beat if they can hold onto everyone.

  4. I'm honestly shocked fewer people are publicly shaming Powell's coach for being an absolute sleezbag. This dude knew his kid threw over 105 pitches. He KNEW it. And once he figured he could actually get away with it, he even altered the game film to fit the story. Guy has absolutely no integrity, and I wouldn't want my child being led by a man with such little character.

  5. Sad deal when a team does something illegal and it is up to the opposing coach who just eliminated to enforce it.

  10. No offense but going to the Governor wouldn't have stopped it when no one knew for a fact Smith was pitching until they arrived in Johnson City and started warming up (Side note is Smith use to play at Happy Valley in 2019 before moving to Knoxville and played travel ball with a lot of the kids at Science Hill his entire life). Do you believe GC's Coach would have just told his team to walk off the fields in substate and take an L that way? Science Hill had beaten Smith earlier in the year and was his only loss so far. I agree the TSSAA is wrong and the Powell Coach and Athletic director are crooked when there is video evidence of the pitch count. Thats why i feel like the TSSAA is a bunch of crooks and another organization needs to take its place that actually cares about their own rules, enforcing them, and have the players best interest at heart (TSSAA does none of the three and all about the money).

  12. Speaking of TSSAA not making sense, the tournament draw is done in private. It’s not broadcasted and there is no school representative at the draw. The only reason I can think that they do it this way is because they are doing something they don’t want everybody to see.. like making the Eagleville side of the bracket easy.

  15. I think coaches should just keep track of their pitch totals, that simple. We don't need an elementary, buddy buddy system to do it. Heck, we were keeping track of pitch totals 15 years before there was even a pitch count rule. The fact of the matter is, this wasn't an honest mistake, like they had down in Memphis during districts. This coach KNEW his kid threw 110 pitches, pencil whipped the paperwork in an attempt to make him legal for Friday, and when the other coach actually signed off on it (cause he just got put out and had 25 other more important things going on than monitoring someone else's pitch total) he went and intentionally ALTERED his video of the game to make the 105 pitches report look legitimate.

  16. The Scott Hall TSSAA Pitch Count Rule Addendum.... Before the game each coach writes the target pitch limit for their starting pitcher on both teams' pitch count form. If a new pitcher enters the game, that process is repeated. When a pitcher is 10 pitches away from that limit, on either team's pitch count, the coach is notified the pitcher is 10 pitches away. If there is any discrepancy in the pitch count when this takes place, it is addressed. IF the coach wants his pitcher to go past his pre-determined limit, he has to provide a new limit and the process is repeated, again when the pitcher is 10 pitches away from that number. What do ya think?

  17. Well sounds like you’ve dug into much more than I have. Going by scores and how many runs they’ve scored they sure seem legit to me. I’ve also heard they are young and could easily be the A favorite in 2023.

  18. Yeah the Bearden coach just got beat and eliminated last thing on his mind is how many pitches the guy threw especially if it could throw a bunch in his game. Sad they make that gospel when there is video evidence that says otherwise. Sad deal here. If I am Science Hill I would definitely be mad and look at options above TSSAA if there are any.

  19. If all the TSSAA does is rely on two coaches signatures of pitch counts and they don’t check, opens the door for lots of corruption. Sad day in TN sports when the governing body makes a rule and won’t enforce it. Same with the kids swapping schools and house A and house B. I’m sure there is tons of broken rules going on now that never comes to light.

  20. Especially a game of this magnitude, where a team advances to the state tournament. The problem i have with it, the situation with Collierville came up after they lost a game. And the issue was brought up over a JV pitcher, who played a small part in beating them. The Science Hill issue is way bigger because it was brought to light days leading up to the Powell game. It was almost like everyone in east TN knew Powell was going to throw the kid. So Powell had time to cover their tracks. TSSAA did nothing? Houston plays Powell tomorrow, at least they won't have to face this stud, right? His 4th day of rest is Tuesday. How many pitches did he throw against SH?

  21. Ok it was dang 54...I remember the signs and said well we are at least fired up..lol I think Cleveland has more talent than people know but you have to capitalize with good programs and in HS discipline plays a major roll anywhere. Good luck with retirement and good to chat with someone else that has seen that game. Lives in infamy with strong Mav fans! Lol

  22. The way I see it, is if TSSAA charges it's member schools a fee to join the association and is allowed to adopt their own rules to govern, they should take responsibility to investigate potential violations. Not saying that they have a task force to review every game, but if accusations are delivered to them with a reasonable explanation of where/how to discover the truth, the situation should be reviewed and addressed. It seems as the only infractions or violations that ever draw a reprimand are hand delivered with all the evidence in a neat little package, wrapped in a bow by someone else.

  23. It's got to suck making it all the way to state just to have to drive 5 hours to play at a 1A baseball field half an hour from the "host" city. Although not as bad as the time we drove 10 hours to Memphis just to play our games at Bolton. That place seemed like it was nearly an hour away from our hotel, and boy was it a freaking dump.

  25. Great game Caldwell was QB now Coastal Carolina Head coach, Gillum current head coach of Mavs at running back and Curtis La Rue speedster receiver and a Great head coach Kerr. This was a disaster for Cleveland with Nations longest winning streak. They were caught of guard and while the offense scored at will the Defense was one of the best the Mavs have ever put together. 3 and outs for Cleveland was killing them and then the inability to adjust to Kerr Caldwell Gillum and La Rue was an all time great Mavericks win. The Mavs went ahead and held it to send Cleveland home with the heads hanging low. Boy that game brings back memories!!!

  26. Any 1982 ORHS Graduates ALIVE out there??? Your 40th Reunion weekend is September 16 - 17, 2022. The seniors from 1982 were on 1979 - 1980 Oak Ridge Wildcats Class AAA State Championship teams. This Sept. 16 the Wildcats play Lenior City. I can't wait to go see long lost friends and maybe CoachT posters. RWR!

  29. There will be video at/from the Skeeter Dome. I think Scott averaged about $3.00 an hour for all the time he put in doing video for football, basketball, baseball, soccer, 100 yards with ____ , and everything else. He also taught three classes: Level 1: A/V Production I Level 2: A/V Production II Level 3: A/V Production III He also coached a little basketball.

  30. In other news, what a freaking joke they've got going on in Memphis. You've got solid teams sitting at home, while T-ball teams in Memphis get to screw around all spring and make it to sub state, JUST to forfeit. What an absolute joke Memphis is.

  34. Peabody competition in the district will be Lake County. These two teams barring injury will meet twice this year just like last year. Lake County should be much better than last year especially on the defensive side. I know Peabody lost several skilled guys but I also know that Trenton has athletes and will replace what they lost. I know people are sleeping on Peabody but I for one am not. All the pressure is on McKenzie can they handle it? I for one thought that Peabody was better than McKenzie last year but McKenzie seemed to want it more. I am still scratching my head on the fake punt call late in the 2nd quarter. I think that was the play that ultimately caused Peabody the game.

  36. Exactly.It amazes me how every year in any sport a Head Coach doesnt know the rules.Whether lots tranfer,eligibility or even a JV/Varsity pitch count and its costs the whole team advancement.Its all in black and white!Just take some time and read the rules.

  40. I talk about you guys on here but at the end of the day it’s all love. Prayers for the Pearl Cohn Community and the family. MADISON, Tenn. (WKRN) — A community is mourning the loss of a Pearl Cohn High School football player, who tragically died in a car crash. Metro police say 18-year-old Taurus Dewayne Turrentine Jr. was a passenger when the crash happened Tuesday night on Due West Avenue in Madison. According to police, the driver had swerved off the road and hit a tree. She told police she saw headlights in front of her and thought another car was headed into her lane. No-show employee pawns work equipment valued at $24K, MNPD says Turrentine was a member of the Pearl Cohn High School football team. Metro Nashville Public Schools released this statement from Coach Tony Brunetti:
