  1. Hope you guys win Friday. I agree with you about Unaka. They have the offensive skill players, just a little soft in the line. We ran for 214 yard and they ran for 53. The difference in the game was our 6 turnovers and they only had one. Did you watch the Colts and Dolphins last night? The dolphins ran 84 offensive plays from scrimmage. The Colt defenders were having to take oxygen at the end of the game. Peyton's the best QB I've ever seen but I liked that Wildcat offense the Dolphins were running.
  2. I fail to see how Cloudland is a "lock." Didn't they just get beat by Unaka, who I'm pretty sure is a region team, and they still have to play us and Hampton, I love the fact that you think that they are that much better than us, and their own fans are talking about all the trouble they are having on offense, if you can't score you can't win. I know they are not nearly as big as yall and we've added some wrinkles defensively that could give them trouble, but the fact that they are a "lock" is hilarious!! Cloudland can beat Cosby if they contain No. 5 and they establish a power running game between the tackles. We just don't have the speed to get outside. Bigblue, what other weapons do you guys have?
  3. Attitude. I think that might be the magic word, 91. I think that problem is spread around the camp. Maybe a little "change" of attitude would be the antidote to this season.
  4. I guess I was talking more about respect from opponents like HV. They love to look down on us. I know our true fan base loves and respects the Lander program. I just hope the guys can get it turned around.
  5. It depends on how the coaches see it. I think he done a good job. I'd put him and Tolley as blocking backs and let Cole run it down the defense throat. He had Unaka beat until that motion penalty took it away. It will be interesting to see how this team responds to this nightmare. This has been a nightmare season for Roan Mt.
  6. I guess I was hoping that no one would start this thread, but oh well. One of Cloudland's problems is just pure lack of talent. The QB does the best he can. He can't run or scramble and he has no big play makers at receiver. Houstma doesn't want to dive after any catchable balls. Morgan is too worried about contact, he won't turn up field and get the extra yards. All we've got is Tolley and Cole. They will hit the hole and get yards after contact. The Shell kid really stepped up the other night and Hitchew showed that he can make some plays. The offensive line just won't block. Those guys are going to have to give more effort to get our backs some room to run. Penalties and discipline are going to have to be addressed before this team can get back on track. HV brings a talented team to roan mt. They mix it up well. They like to do a lot of different things on offense. They are solid on defense as well. It would take a special effort for our team to even challenge HV. I'm sure they are licking their chops. Cloudland has no ones respect right now. They will have to earn it. I would like to see some pride back in the community over the football team. I'd like to see these guys step up and fight HV like never before.
  7. Johnson Co. by seven in this one. Two evenly matched teams. Homefield may very well be the difference.
  8. I guess I could agree with that statement, Cloudland should win 2 more games and that would make them 5 and 5. I imagine they have had several seasons like that back in the day. I just think the expectations have changed from back in those days. Cloudland should win 2 more ya say. Who might those 2 be? As if I don't know who your thinkin. Lets use some of like opponents here to help you with your thinking. Cosby ran Union county off of their own field in a preseason scrimmage (I know scrimmages don't mean much but it was a very thorough butt kicking) Union County beat Grainger convincingly who has beaten both West Greene and Chuckey Doak. West greene whipped Cloudland , and Unaka , CD beat Unaka , Unaka beat Cloudland. Hmmmmmm! I see Cloudland winning 1 more game against Hancock and thats about it. Theres no way there beating HV , Hampton , or Johnson County so I know your thinking Cosby and Hancock. Actually, I still believe the game with Cosby will be a close hard fought game. Of course, I don't blame you for your prediction. You guys have a lot of pride and have stood by your boys even though it has been a very tough season. Cloudland football is in dire straits. Kids may start packing up and going to the house, or they will come back to work and start correcting things. I don't know what will happen at this point. I remember my senior season when coach Rob was our QB. He was only a sophomore and we had a 1-3 start to the season. He threw interception after interception. To make a long story short, we wound up finishing 7-3. We have 3 football coaches who knows what it takes to come back from adversity. Coach Potter was our QB my freshman and sophomore years. I remember how much heart, desire, and pride he had in our team. Robbie and Scott were also very tough defensive backs. Coach Oaks has been around Cloudland football since the early 70's. I have confidence that these guys will eventually get our team out of this hole. It will be a big learning experience. I know for myself, it has been very difficult. I hate to lose so bad that I could be tempted to kill the opponent before I'd let it happen. But through all of this, I've come to realize how much I love my community and the football program. If we can get the discipline problem fixed, I think the Landers can surprise some people before the year is out.
  9. And a big congrats to you guys tonight, big win. Iagrre with you about NG, Ihate seeing these same schools getting murdered year after year.Not long ago ,you guys were in the same boat. Really glad to see you making strides. Is West Greene for real or what? I saw where CG beat SG and put 56 pts. on them. West GReene defense is tough as nails. Might be right up there with Hampton.
  10. Cuda, I do agree with you. I'm not at the practices but I would hope that the coaches are trying to teach proper blocking and tackling. I also don't know what that kid was thinking when he tried to jump on that punt when nobody had touched it. Surely, our boys know more about the rules than that. When we scored that go ahead touchdown, a stupid motion penalty brought it back and that was the nail in the coffin. I will say that Matt Cole and Aaron Tolley are horses. These guys should carry the ball at all times. Morgan cannot help us until he learns to run the ball hard and quit dancing and spinning around. I think Trey should be given the opportunity to take over Morgan's role. And this is the first team I've seen up here in a long time where the running backs are more physical than the offensive line. From what I saw, the O-line just doesn't want to put forth the effort to block. I saw several plays where the line was turning around and watching the RB's dragging defenders down the field. Another thing that needs to be addressed is personal fouls. If I was the coach, any kid that drew a personal foul would sit on the bench the rest of the year. I think it makes the team look bad because the player only thought of himself and not his team. Like I said, I am not at the practices and I don't know what the coaches are trying to instill in the players. I go back many years with 3 of them and I know that they are super good guys and I don't want to say anything on here to cause hard feelings. Losing is something I am not accustomed to. I don't even get beat at tic-tac-toe. I guess I expect everyone else to be warriors too. The pride is gone up here. There is only the memory of the good days where we imposed Highlander willpower on the opposition. In order to get it back, we need to come together as a community and support our guys and let them know we are behind them. Then it comes to the players. Those guys have to be willing to be perfect and to take pride in their work. All that being said, I love Cloudland football and want to get it back to where it was.
  11. I think now is a critical time for encouragement. I've done a lot of soul searching and I realize that being so critical on this board or anywhere else isn't going to solve anything. We've got a lot of BIG problems in our football program and they are not going to get resolved unless we come together as one big family and get behind our coaches and kids. We can't keep crucifiying them over these losses. Its going to make things worse. Who else is going to step in and do any better? If we are going to suffer through a miserable season then guess what, I'M GAME. I'm here for the long haul. Whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, by god
  12. Not much to talk about, Bigblue. Maybe they will redeem themselves tonight. I'm curious to see what will happen. Losing to the creek would just absolutely kill this season.
  13. It was good to hear about Cloudland's jr. high pounding the jr dogs. What was it, 40-8? I hope this is a sign of the future.
  14. Drove by the practice field yesterday. Everyone on the team was hitting the sled. Looks like the Landers have worked really hard this week and I hope it pays off Friday.
