    Scott Tillman out at Lipscomb

    Truly not trying to be a smart a** but why would you feel that you could MAYBE compete with CPA at some point? Do what you have to do to be successful or fold up your tent and get out of the football business. For the life of me I don't understand the defeated before we begin philosophy.

    If he try's to play with MBA, Brentwood Academy, McCallie, etc... he will get his backside kicked because no matter how good he is with X's & O's he will not have the studs to execute the game plan. Is Lipscomb going to reach out in the Greater Nashville area and recruit the type of athletes needed to play with the big boys?

    I wish them well but this has never been very successful in other states. How many good kids are really going to cut weight for this tournament. Many of the D2 state champions will have just returned from the National Preps.

    Ingle turned the job down after CPA agreed to various stipulations for the program.

    I wish only the best for Chittum but I am only listing the kids wrestling for Tennessee high schools. We have other kids at out of state prep schools that are not being listed.

    Science Hill makes a mockery of our sport

    Would a basketball, football or baseball game be rescheduled due to illness?

    Science Hill makes a mockery of our sport

    If what you are claiming is 100% true then my thoughts are as follows: Forfeiting weight classifications & taking a loss is unacceptable behavior on the part of any coaching staff when they have wrestlers that could have competed. I have absolutely no problem with someone sending out JV wrestlers to gain some experience if the match results will not affect your team. However, forfeiting when you have healthy wrestlers is unacceptable. The fact that someone would pull the stunt of charging admission (even $1.00) is not right and the patrons have a legitimate reason to be upset.

    Incoming Freshman and Transfers

    I received my information from a book that was written by William Welker. Just based on pure speculation I would say that the percentage would be even higher when two wrestlers are evenly matched.

    Incoming Freshman and Transfers

    If the first takedown "DON'T MEAN MUCH" then why do the statistics say that the winner of the first takedown in high school wrestling win 80+% of the time. Just asking because I have always been told that scoring the first takedown in a big match is very important.

    Playoff crowds

    The financial aid was curbed when the split took place and the cry babies still wanted a split. My recommendations will never take place but as a public school kid I will tell you that the message that is being sent is that we are not good enough to compete. I never ever felt that private school kids were ever smarter or better athletes than me and resent the message being sent. Stop being soft and figure out a way to compete. The public school kids have to compete for academic awards, college admissions and jobs when they graduate so why not compete on the athletic field?

    Folks I know that many of you don't want to recognize it or simply are not informed but the TSSAA is not in good financial condition. With the 2017 football playoff numbers down from 2016 and the 2018 attendance numbers down 19% from 2017 it is not a pretty picture. If the organization is ever going to get back on solid footing they must take drastic measures. Like I have said before they should really consider doing the following: Class A Small public schools and no private schools Class AA Public schools and small private schools that do not offer any financial aid Class AAA Public schools and small private schools that offer financial aid Class AAAA Large public schools and large private schools that offer financial aid Return to a District format with only the top 2 teams in each district advancing to the state playoffs. As it is now you only have about 50-55 teams in each division for football. Is that what people really want to achieve is to be the best team of 55 schools. At that rate if you are ranked number 6-10 in the state you are not even in the top 10% of your division. All teams that have a winning record that do not qualify for the state playoffs may play in a bowl game. All bowl games must be played the week after the regular season concludes. Two of the state championship games would be hosted in the East and two would be hosted in the West. The games would be played at the home field of the school participating. If the East hosted the Class A & AAA in 2018 they would host Class AA & AAAA in 2019. The TSSAA would receive 50% of the gate, the home team would receive 25% of the gate, 100% of the concessions and 100% of the parking and the visiting team would receive 25% of the gate. Yes it would be crowded and people would be everywhere but that would create a great atmosphere for high school athletics. When a business is in trouble they must cut all expenses to the bone or they will not survive. If the TSSAA waits to long to make changes they may be down for the count and not able to recover.

    Yes you are correct in that the ship has sailed but let's be honest and say that it sailed because we had a group of VERY SOFT adults making decisions. The only way for this to take place is for the TSSAA to be on the verge of bankruptcy or bleeding large sums of money. Oh, that may be taking place with the 2018 attendance being down 19% over the 2017 attendance.

    The TSSAA has had issues with the playoffs for a number of years but the real problems are just beginning to surface. My advice would be to combine everyone again and reduce the number of classifications for football to four. Play two of the state championship games in the East and the other two games in the West. Games should be played at the home filed of one of the schools. Yes you would have people everywhere and a school would have the option of moving the game to a larger venue but the school would take on the financial liability of moving the games to another venue. Also only take the top 2 teams from each district. You must make going to the playoffs a major accomplishment and a very special event.
