  1. Interesting, but two thirds of the state is picking Boone over South in the big ones.
  2. The biggest intangible in middle school regardless of the level of coaching is the players themselves. Interest and desires change overtime. That stud 5’7 150lb linebacker in the 8th grade with the 8.5 shoe and shaving ends up 5’7 and 175lb. Senior. On the other hand that short fat kid that can’t move with size 12’s might end up 6’3 275lb. With quick feet.
  3. Stan is very private. Whether retired or coaching elsewhere, I wish him the best. We go back to when he was in college and I was a very young coach 40 years ago. Thanks for the responses.
  4. Is Coach Ogg still the defensive coordinator?
  5. I'm a Topper grad too pardner :)
  6. I think DB has a new AD with Greeneville Connections.
  7. The last time DB was voted a state championship. Apples and oranges. Not trying to diminish all their state championships, but that is not how it is done anymore since fall of 1969, 50 years ago. They are a historic program that has fallen on hard times.
  8. If you don't make a profit (our sport), you are relegated to the rear of the line. I have used the the dollar sign for the TSSAA myself at times, but the number 1 thing they provide besides a blue print for the structure, rules and enforcement of High School athletics, they pay a great deal for Catastrophic Insurance. Catastrophic insurance left to the individual school would result in most schools dropping many sports particularly the contact sports. They are a business. Who Isn't? They have offices (very humble), staff, salaries and insurance themselves. We rundown the TSSAA, yet spend thousands on our kids to improve them, while screaming at refs, yelling at coaches and then often get upset over the price of a High School ticket all the while we will spend thousands to go to a bowl or Super Bowl game. Yeah the Center could be improved, but people have forgotten how bad our sport was treated in Chattanooga as well. I apologize for the rambling up front fellas.
  9. Couple a years ago or so, Pigeon Forge beat The Brothers up in Johnson City in a dual. Foreman takes what he has..... a small school in the mountains that didn't even know there was amateur wrestling 15+ years ago and he has made them champions. Job well done Greg.
  10. They could win it, But GHS was without Shuffler at the GIT. With Shuffler that is a big shift ( is he hurt). Plus Shelton held a top guy out of the tourney for discipline reasons (a lot of respect that way)
  11. We probably agree much more than our writing may indicate. I would like to see all 3 together and Im glad I don't have to make that decision.
