  1. So, this game is what we've been waiting 3 years to see out of Pearl-Cohn? The talk in 2017 was all about what they were gonna do to Alcoa. Covington knocked them out. Same last year, Stratford knocked them out. Finally PC gets there in 2019 and at half, are on a pace to lose 54-0.
  2. That long run by PC made Alcoa mad. Followed up with 2 TFL's. Edited to say: correction - that was 4 consecutive TFL.
  3. Well, PC wanted Alcoa, and y'all got 'em. The saying is " Be careful what you wish for....." With Alcoa up 14-0 after the 1st quarter, this is looking like another Alcoa shutout. Does Pearl-Cohn have a comeback in them? We'll see.
  4. The Sonny-Moore power rankings show Alcoa 148 PC 128 This system then makes Alcoa a 20-point favorite. I think that sounds about right.
  5. Just a postscript to the win last night by PC. The latest Sonny-Moore power rankings had showed Covington one point ahead of Pearl-Cohn. Giving PC 3 points for home field advantage, then PC would have been favored by 2. PC won by 1. Point being - some may sneer at the power rankings, but at least in this case, they predicted the outcome within 1 point.
  6. Congratulations to Pearl-Cohn for advancing to Cookeville. I'll be watching y'all play Alcoa on TV. Congrats to the Charger players and coaches. We had a great year, and we will be back. Outstanding football is a Covington tradition.
  7. For the poster who was asking about live streaming of this game, I found this on the TSSAA website: NFHS Network Games The NFHS Network will be bringing numerous games to fans that are unable to attend games in person via their live video streaming platform. With an NFHS Network subscription you can watch any and all games for one low monthly or annual fee. You can click here to find your game on the Network. The games on the Network this Friday are: Oakland @ Maryville Houston @ Ravenwood Knoxville West @ Knoxville Central Nolensville @ Elizabethton Loudon @ Alcoa Dyer County @ Summit All NFHS Network events are available to watch online at NFHSnetwork.com and through the NFHS Network Live App for iOS and Android. So apparently, the Covington - Pearl-Cohn game will not appear.
  8. Here's a write-up from the Daily Memphian: Class 3A Matchup: Covington (11-2) vs. Nashville Pearl Cohn (13-0) at Glencliff High How they got here: Covington defeated Melrose, 48-6; defeated South Gibson, 14-10; defeated Wooddale, 27-0; Pearl Cohn defeated Stewart County, 42-0; defeated East Nashville, 28-19; defeated Giles County, 28-21 What’s next: The winner will face either Alcoa (13-0) or Loudon (13-0) for the state championship on Dec. 6 at 3 p.m. in Cookeville The rundown: The Chargers are one victory away from their third consecutive trip to Cookeville and like they did in 2017, they’ll have to get past a very good Firebirds team. If they play like they did against Wooddale in the quarters, they have a good chance. Covington held the Cardinals to just 94 yards on the ground while hounding standout quarterback John Jones into a 9-for-31 passing game. Josh McGarity intercepted a pass, giving Covington 18 picks on the season, while Caleb Winfrey recovered a fumble. Offensively, Covington ran for 230 yards and was able to keep Wooddale’s playmakers off the field, most notably on an 85-yard drive in the second quarter. Pearl Cohn will face a similar challenge in terms of skill players; quarterback Martino Owens has thrown for 1,929 yards (completing 66.5% of his passes) for 25 touchdowns against only four picks. He has two terrific targets in senior Cedric Watkins (11 touchdown grabs) and sophomore Barion Brown (10). The game has been moved to Glencliff High in Nashville due to poor field conditions at Pearl Cohn. https://dailymemphian.com/section/sports/article/9154/tssaa-semifinal-playoff-preview-houston-and
  9. Here's an interesting question for you PC fans. How far is it from PC to Glenclif, and how will that extra distance affect attendance by your fans? Would you expect half the crowd that you would get at home, or what? Y'all's attendance at road games this season might give us some idea.
  10. I don't really care who they pick. The game will be decided between the white lines. I think that Covington can compete. Wooddale last week was picked by local folks in Memphis to walk all over Covington. It didn't happen. Our guys know that they can get the job done.
  11. Thanks. If the Chargers can get by Pearl-Cohn I will be available for a trip to Cookeville on Dec. 6.
  12. This was a tough decision. My Memphis Tigers are two wins away from a historic first-ever trip to the Cotton Bowl. My Chargers can book another trip to Cookeville if they can win tomorrow night vs. PC. I have chosen to take the short drive to the Liberty Bowl to see #17 Memphis vs #18 Cincinnati. It's a game of historic impact. i will listen to the Chargers on the radio and pull for them to win without me.
  13. We are 24 hours from kickoff. I'm assuming that this will be a hard-hitting game. I hope that both teams can play injury-free.
  14. Well, Covington has a very good field. However during last year’s playoffs ( all played at home) it got chewed up pretty well. By the time we played Stratford in the semi-finals it was terrible. It had big mud holes and was generally nasty.
  15. I wonder if this is a game of musical fields, like musical chairs? If a team shows up at the wrong field then they have to forfeit. I could see the Charger players and coaches driving all over Nashville trying to find the game location. Let’s see how this shakes out.
