  1. Can’t argue with the success of the coaches that have moved over from Pickett County.
  2. I’ll just use the statistics that came out on February 7th 2024 GITNUX MARKETDATA REPORT 2024 Home » Market Data » Crime And Safety Statistics Report: Memphis Crime Rate Ranking Statistics Last Updated: February 7, 2024 Written & Summarized by: Jannik Lindner Highlights: Memphis Crime Rate Ranking Statistics Memphis ranks as one of the most dangerous cities in America. The overall crime rate in Memphis is 109% higher than the national average. In Memphis, your chance of becoming a victim of crime is 1 in 12. In 2017, Memphis had 653 reports of rape, one of the highest in the nation. The city of Memphis has the highest number of aggravated assaults among all other cities in the US. Violent crime in Memphis increased by 10% in 2021 compared to 2020. Property crimes in Memphis have a rate of 64.41 per 1,000 residents. Memphis's murder rate increased 52% in 2020 compared to 2019. In 2018, Memphis had 186 murders, making it the highest murder rate among major US cities. There were 12,114 vehicle thefts in Memphis in 2019. Memphis has the highest rate of firearm assaults among 50 largest U.S. cities. The number of homicides in Memphis increased by 11% in 2018. Memphis areas experienced a 5.3% increase in major property crimes like burglaries and car thefts in 2019. In 2018, the violent crime victimisation rate in Memphis stood at 84.4 per 1,000 people. For you I’m sure it’s very safe but for the majority not so much. I love Memphis spent many a nite down on Beale Street! Nashville ain’t got nothin on those bands down there. Fact! Bbq is the best hands down. Sometimes I think my posts come off like I’m biased or bitter towards something or someone and that’s really not the case.
  3. Cookeville/Tenn Tech is centrally located with a great venue and a safe place to bring the family. However I do see your point about rotating venues.
  4. No offense, but Memphis is not a safe place to walk down the sidewalk let alone host a state tournament over 3 days.
  5. Because it needs to be centrally located. Otherwise have it in Bristol then the west teams can travel 6 hours instead of 3. Makes just as much sense as what you said.
  6. If Insell didn’t have the recruiting machine back in the 80’s, 90’s and early 00’s I wonder how many state titles White County would’ve had?
  7. I’ll take the field against Dyersburg. What you want to put on it?
  8. Upperman will be back next year and will be better. Where Fultons best players were seniors, Upperman’s best two players were a freshman and a sophomore. So the future is bright for them for sure.
  9. Fulton was on a business trip. One goal and mission accomplished. This organization is a class act from the coaches down to the players on the floor. Love to see this kind of professionalism and humbleness.
  10. Looks like Alcoa has some good basketball players as well. I stand corrected!
  11. Would pay to see Fulton vs Douglass
  12. My mistake on the State title in football it was their region title I believe they had to vacate. Bottom line is this school is mirroring the old Temple school in so many ways when it comes to boys basketball. Now how they started out or when is of no concern. How they ended and what they were doing when it ended is very similar to how this school is starting out. There ARE similarities between the two. Temple didn’t all of a sudden get good at basketball in the early to mid 2000’s by doing what they had been in the 80’s and 90’s. And you’re correct ALL private schools recruited and still do. My point in all this is this school is playing in Div 1’s lowest classification while doing what private schools do and that sir is against the rules.
  13. Fulton just too good and too experienced for this young Upperman squad. The two best teams will meet for the championship tomorrow in AAA.
