Karns is 2nd in their 5a region on the back of Bishop. Can't recall the last time they had a season like that. Farragut won state in 2017? and barely made post-season now. Fulton had a good streak a few years ago, but they haven't done anything lately. Has Powell ever won state? West won it 15 years ago or something? Let's think through what your saying and see if it alligns with reality. Halls is playing better than they have in ages. Central won two state championship, lost their head coach, and doesn't appear to be the same. South Doyle made quarter-finals in 5a last year, dropped down to 4a this and finished 4th in their region. If there were a vast conspiracy to cheat, wouldn't the same programs Keep winning every year? In Knox County that doesn't happen. You might be mad at Blount county here, but that of course is a different animal entirely. And neither of those schools play 5a.
