  1. Yes, the school system needs to ante up and support McConnell and his entire staff. From the outside looking in, I can never remember Waverly being so hard to beat in football. Sometimes school systems don't know what they have until the guys are gone. I made some people over there mad a year ago talking about this, and for that I apologize. But I could see this coming. It is a repeating theme at mid-size public schools.
  2. Congrats to Peabody for representing the west side well. Sounds like it was a great game. Congrats to TC for getting that far. That's no easy feat to be state runner up.
  3. Have heard that about Tiger High also. Hope you guys get back on track and we'll have a rumble in the jungle.
  4. This is a good job, especially with Robertson over there. AND there is a lot of potential for them to increasingly bleed talent off of the Big Red Tigers.
  5. Riverside fans saying "Go Waverly." We're pulling for you, but be sure and carry your lunch boxes. You sure got your work cut out for you.
  6. Yep, prolly the biggest frosh class we've ever had.
  7. Got 24 fine freshmen coming up, just stomping to be part of the high school program. Looks like we should be strong for a few years anyway.
  8. No excuses here. Waverly beat us twice fair and square. Done deal.
  9. Yep, and will be for the Peabody Waverly winner at Cookevegas.
  10. We should be about the same. Few seniors but they have been key in the success this season. Senior quarterback, coaches son, has started four years. one at Moore Co. and three here.
  11. Pulling for Waverly from here on out. Representing Region 6....................And Frostie should have had Region 6 Coach of the Year.
  12. Looks like the season is over for my RiverRats. A good one for sure. Hat's off to Waverly. I hope you guys win it all.
  13. Loading up to go across the river. Go Panthers!
  14. If the ground is as soft in Waverly as it is on the west side of the river, we'll have a mud pit tonight at the Hampton.
  15. Waverly is not arrogant but they have just cause. They have beaten Riverside by an average of 21+ in the past five years. A couple of the games were actually closer than the scores, but they traditionally score more on our guys in the second half. I was surprised Riverside got out to such a lead on them when they played our Rats at home in mid-season. I was also surprised when Tiger Town teed off on us in the second half, roared back and took the lead, not to give it up. That was a different game story - same old ending. Will Riverside get over the hump Friday night? We'll see. Really looking forward to a good game between two quality teams.
  16. This time of the year the teams that can and do pass tend to advance. That has a lot of weight on why the hard running, eight in the box West TN teams keep getting knocked out by the East and Middle TN teams. I know Peabody is tough and well coached, but I'm going with UC because they have more of a passing attack. I think that's one reason they have been so successful. They are not your typical West TN team.
  17. Wavo had some great teams in the late 80s and early 90s I think, while Camden was really down.
  18. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. This is the best team Riverside has ever put on the field in school history. This is the best team Waverly has ever had since I can remember. These are the best teams both schools have to offer. Riverside has gotten progressively better as the year has gone by. Has Waverly? If the answer to that is "yes," we all know what will happen next Fri. If the answer is "no" Katie bar the door.
  19. Yes, most people in this end of the state have a lot of respect for Coach Sharp. I've been across the field from him as a fan at three different schools over the past 20 years. He is hard to beat when his team is having a bad day and impossible to beat when they are having a good day. And yes, RS is slept on most every game. We are in the middle of nowhere as far as press goes. We are too far west for Nashville to report on and Jackson only talks about us when we are playing Lexington or one of the Jackson private schools (in the past).
  20. Yours would have been one of the first classes to go all the way through the "new" school.
  21. Hats off to the Lewis Co. Panthers. They got behind early and kept it close until the final buzzer. They never gave up, and kept calling time outs late in the fourth to try to get some points. They are a fine program and very hard to beat in high school football - year in and year out. Their facility is as nice as any public 2A school I've been to. They were a lot harder to beat than they were three years ago when we played them at Riverside. Those young men have grown up! Wish the best to the Lewis Co. seniors and am sure they will go far in school and life.
  22. You know you love Riverside Big Ed; we do more business with Fed Ex than any other high school.
