    A/AA State Finals Boyd Buchanan vs CCS

    What an awesome run to the state championship these guys made! To win the last two games on PK's is incredible. They were a pretty thin team (depth-wise) but they showed tremendous heart! CCS was top-ranked all year and heavily favored in this match. They had a great season and are to be commended and congratulated as well. (I think they only lose four seniors.) At least five of these Bucs came up short in the AA state football championship game (American football) against Trousdale County. I'm sure nothing will really make up for that loss, but this has to be especially sweet for Taylor Shull, Ben Beasley, Joey Glisson, Jake Lockert and Clint Babb (did I forget anyone?) who were all key cogs in December. Congratulations to the entire team and to coaches Owens, Walker and Campbell!

    Boyd Buchanan vs Decatur Co. Riverside

    DCRiverside "run rules" BBS by a score of 10-0. Great run for my Bucs but it seems obvious that Riverside is loaded. If my math is correct they won their four games in the Fling by a combined total of 49-5, three of those by the mercy rule. Congratulations to them! BBS made an unprecedented run to the final game. No Bucs baseball team had ever been past the sectional round. To make it to the finals is awesome! It will be hard for the kids to keep perspective on this right now but they will appreciate it more in the next few days. Congratulations to the 10 seniors on this team, all their teammates and coaches Robbins, Rider and Parker.

    Boyd Buchanan Wins Opener

    BBS, making its first-ever appearance at the baseball state tourney, edged Adamsville 8 to 7 in Class A first round action. Winning run scored on a walk-off walk. Wow!

    PRIVATE VS. PUBLIC

    I'm sure the Bucs will be back in the hunt again. The Jackets will have some work to do before we climb the hill to Cookeville again. But, who knows, stranger things have happened I suppose. Thanks for answering my questions. Fair and honest answers, all. I always find you to be that way, even if I disagree with some of your opinions. To follow up just one more time, I have this question: If TC (along with South Pitt and some others) can compete and even dominate the private schools you face, in your opinion, why can't other small public schools do the same or at least be more competitive? It seems most small public schools are very similar. Most are from rural counties without a large population base from which to choose. I get that. But why can TC and SP do it but others can't?

    PRIVATE VS. PUBLIC

    Wasn't ignoring your post, SS, been out of town for a few days, just got back & trying to catch up a bit. My opinion is, and always has been, privates have at least the opportunity to do this. A small private school, that consistently comes up with this many athletes from a small pool of nearby residents, is suspect. The enrollment has to come from somewhere else. If a star athlete walks in the door, compared to the average Joe, who do you think is the likely choice? Will you find this decision on paper? Of course not. Our friendly neighboring private, FCS, boasts of a nine county draw. Does BB cherry pick? I don't know what they do, and won't claim to know. And, no one else is going to admit to anything, so......... As for South Pitt, I'll let them do their own talking. Aside from that, Boyd played a great game Sat. vs TC. The team should not hang their head, they gave all they had, and that's all anyone can ask. Thanks for responding...but you really didn't answer my question, at least not directly. Did it look to you like BBS "cherry-picked" (your term) the best athletes of the two teams on the field during the BC Bowl? No knock on my BBS boys but it didn't look that way to me. As far as "star athletes" walking in the door, it has not happened very often during the twenty-plus years I have known anything about BBS. I would venture to say TC has had more that fit into that category than BBS has had. The enrollment at BBS is down a little from its peak a couple of years ago and I believe they have spots open at virtually every grade level from pre-K through 12th grade...so they really can't be too "selective." They would love to have all of those spots filled because they want to offer a Christian education to as many kids as would like to take advantage of it. The admissions process does not include a bench press test, shuttle run or a 40 yard dash timing...pretty sure about that. I've heard that line about "nine counties" regarding FCS's student base so often that I have begun to wonder if it is an advantage or a disadvantage. You guys never seem to have much trouble with them on the football field! Thanks for the compliment toward the Bucs' effort. I thought they played hard and came up a little short. Frankly, I thought they were outmanned. Congratulations to TC on continuiing your domination of all schools (public or private) in whatever class you find yourselves. Your record is exemplary in that regard. Your program should be a model for all small public schools to follow.

    PRIVATE VS. PUBLIC

    Hey grunt, I asked in a post the other day (a couple pages back) if you thought Boyd Buc "cherry-pick(ed) the best athletes" after you watched them play your TC team? You never answered. What think ye? Once again, congratulations to Trousdale County, a highly successful small public school that has won more small-school state football championships than ANY small private school -- probably more than any two private schools. If they (and South Pittsburg) can do it, why can't others?

    Trousdale Co. vs Boyd Buc

    Your opinion, of course. Perhaps the "poor passing" was made poor by the play of the excellent BBS secondary and the pressure put on by the Bucs d-line. I'd say that "average" defense did pretty well four times from the one yard line in the fourth quarter! Just my opinion of course, but I doubt that the TC team or coaches share your opinion.

    Trousdale Co. vs Boyd Buc

    Congratulations to Trousdale County on a well-deserved and hard-earned eighth state title. IMHO every time TC threw the ball they did BBS a favor. The TC line was great. Their execution was not flawless but it was pretty great! I'm not sure BBS "outweighed" the TC line by "40%" as was previously posted. In fact, with one or two exceptions, I'd say TC outweighed BBS pretty much across the board. Seay was THE difference in the game as I saw it. Anyway, congrats to the Yellow Jackets. The Bucs did themselves proud. I'm sure they are disappointed but they lost two games all year by a total of 13 points to two pretty good, traditionally strong teams, Red Bank (14-7) and today. Pretty impressive season!

    PRIVATE VS. PUBLIC

    Congratulations to Trousdale County on another state title. If you guys can dominate the private schools in your division on a fairly consistent basis with good coaching, great administrative and community support, excellent, hard-working kids and great tradition, why can't other public schools? Did you really feel that BBS cherry-picked the "best athletes?" I'm a true-blue BBS fan, but in all honesty, that's not what I saw today. Once again, congratulations on a hard-earned state title.
  11. Now be careful. You'll be accused of "whining" like some of my friends have been for the last ten years or so...
  12. There aren't any private schools in the girls' state tourney are there? There are a few magnet schools. Hmmmmm?

    Private Schools left in football playoffs

    What are the percentages now? Can anybody do that math? Let's face it. The multiplier was a reactionary policy enacted by public school administrators that was designed to prevent independent schools from winning championships -- primarily football championships. It almost worked 100% this year.
  14. So, in other words, we paid/are paying for TSU to have the right to use LP Field?

    Championship Games in Division I

    OK then. Only one private school left in the division one playoffs in any classification.
