  1. Swenson has a good TEAM( with the emphasis on the word team) but what I have noticed is that he seems to lean on his best player more than he should. Take last year in the Cornersville game for example, the kid that scored the touchdown for Huntingdon only touched the ball maybe 3 times the entire game. The rest of the time he relied on Endsley and it cost him.
  2. Wow. The school should send the Giles County School Board a bill for the clean up. That would put a stop to it in the future.
  3. The only thing that irked me was the decision to go for it instead of kick the field goal. I'm not criticizing the coaches work ethic, teaching, or anything else. I know this is a good group of coaches. Letting good teams hang around will get you beat. Especially when the opposing coach knows your schemes inside and out. The head coach cant control flag happy officials and when that starts to happen, along with facing a talented defense, points are at a premium and you have to take what you can get. With that being said, I dont think Marshall County would have had the success that they have had witout this coaching staff.
  4. I'm not bashing the coaches. I think they have done a really good job. My point is that there is a common denominator in big or tight games. This game didnt mean anything as far as playoffs seeding is concerned. It was a chance to learn and get better. The coaches and kids bust their tails and I want to see them succeed.
  5. Also you are misinterpreting what I'm saying. We have been fortunate to have some very good teams since Osteen has been there. You take it as I'm coach bashing and that's not what it is at all. In all of the games I mentioned i can understand what he was trying to do and in all of those games he did the exact opposite of what the situation called for. Stop being such a homer and see it for what it is. It's almost like I tole a Jesus joke in the middle of Bethlehem.
  6. I said it earlier in the thread that yall were better than your record suggested. Yall have played some tough competition for sure.
  7. Osteen had Medley in his first year in 14. It was Medley's senior year. In 15 against Catholic he went for it on 4th and 10 from the 50 on 3 consecutive drives. Catholic turned all that into points. We lost by 19. Why, if you know the other team is that talented, fo you give them a short field and not make them go the length of the field to score? In 16 against Knox Central we had a 24-3 second quarter lead and we try and get cute and start throwing the ball when we had been running it down their throats for almost 2 quarters. Stick with what works. A 2 point win is as good as a 50 point win.
  8. I'm not one to jump on the officials much but they were suspect tonight. Not saying that that is the reason Giles County won either. They put together a game plan and came in and executed it. If the Tigers want to do anything in the playoffs this year they are going to have to clean up the stupid penalties. We get about 3 or four personal fouls a game and that's not going to cut it. Osteen also needs to learn when to put points on the board. We have one of the best kickers in the state and you go for it on 4th and goal from the 6 and not let him kick it????? Do that and a field goal wins it in the end. Remember Osteens first year in the first round of the playoffs against Giles County when we had Aaron Medley? Kid could hit from 60+ and with seconds to go before the half he chose to kneel the ball and go to halftime. The Tigers were getting the ball to start the second half. Why not let Medley try the long field goal? The tigers lost that game by 3. And the coaching blunders continued the next 2 years in the semifinals. The only tight game i can remember them winning was against East Hamilton in the quarterfinals in 15. Good win tonight Bobcats.
  9. Waiting to see how many penalty yards MC had tonight.
  10. Giles County with an impressive drive to open up the 3rd quarter only to have a field goal attempt blocked. The Tigers take over and have a player ejected on the 3rd play of the drive. Rucker rips off a long run on the very next play and after the ball is spotted the home side lights go out.
  11. Sloppy game. Tigers with about 6,000 yards in penalties. Block in the back cost them a touchdown. Giles County has a pretty good game plan so far. Tigers lead 10 -7 at the half.
  12. I know brother. Some people get way to defensive about strength of schedule, rankings and common opponents. None of it really matters. SOS and rankings do not get teams in the playoffs. Take care of the region and it will all sort itself out in November.
