  1. You think Peabody would be able to consistently defend both the pass and the run? … I mean they are not getting pressured by our pass game … I give Peabody a slight edge but I bet it would be a shoot-out ...
  2. How do you think a Peabody/Lake County game would turn out ?
  3. I asked earlier … I heard we had 11 fumbles … How many did we lose ? … How many picked up or picked off and ran in for TDs? … How many short fields GC have to drive? … 76 yard TD pass called back on first play from scrimmage … How many penalties in all? … 35 points … 500 yards offense … 25 first downs … No way you lose that game …
  4. I hear UC hit them with a 76 touchdown PASS first play from scrimmage that got called back … Along with the TOs how many penalties were called on the Tornadoes ?
  5. I mean the defense is what it is but this is week 5 and the Tornadoes had 11 fumbles? … How many were lost fumbles?
  6. Got to get this lack of defense/too many turnovers business straightened out. I mean no disrespect but the Tornadoes just got beat by a school known for girl's basketball and band … A team that was 0-16 against the Tornadoes … This one is a bad beat … Living in a world where UC is giving up 50+ to Lake County and 60+ to Gibson County … I'm not saying this is up to the level of Gleason beating UC in the Jimmy Fishel days but it's on up there … Lord help us when we go up against Peabody … That said, GO TORNADOES !!! … But dang …
  7. Don't believe it's been said. Series record stands at 16 wins for Union City … 0 wins for Gibson County ...
  8. BTW in the last 5 years: 5-37 BTW in the last 10 years: 26-70 Last Meeting: 2002 UC-39 BTW-0 Perfect Homecoming Opponent It Appears
  9. Carson Cary's mom and dad graduated from Union City so I'm good with him winning it all … I'll be pulling for them and Humboldt …
  10. That's the way you get ready for the playoffs … Nice schedule …

  12. Welp you get your rearend handed to you twice you just got to tip your hat ... Congrats PEABODY Bring home the Gold ...
  13. You know the first match-up with Peabody really doesn't matter . The Tornadoes were down to their third string QB which also meant two of their best defensive backs were out as well. The McKenzie game UC lost saw Kaleb Craig, who has rushed for 2,034 yards this season, have only 48 yards on 15 carries and was playing hurt. You can say excuses but those are facts. Nobody in 2A has played the schedule UC has this season. @ Mayfield (12-0) @ Penns Grove, NJ (11-0) @ Fairley (9-2) vs Jax SS (10-2) and vs Peabody (11-1). Those are facts. UC is healthy now. It will be a different game. If my memory serves me, UC was down 28-14 to Peabody and had the ball coming out of the half. Score and make it 28-21 who knows what happens and that was with a bunch of kids playing out of position. Maybe Peabody is like Dresden was in 2016 and is just better than UC but they have it to do. UC can't have penalties and they have to hold on to the ball. They have to make a few stops on defense. If they do that, they will win. Throw the 7-5 UC record out the window. This is much different team now.
  14. Big, I think they just don't cover Lake County and Obion County period … That's why you won't see LC or UC, OC or SF mentioned in any type of Dandy Dozen or anything like that ...
  15. Plain and simple what beat us was lack of depth … Union City did everything they wanted on offense until the 4th quarter … You dominate the TOP like we did, rush for well over 300 yards, have a kid rush for over 200 yards, have no turnovers and almost no penalties you usually win … Mayfield is deeper and were running defensive linemen in and out and it wore us down late … Mayfield is a great program and they are very well coached, not only at the top but as well as top notch assistants … Those guys don't know what losing is, especially at home, and they showed that last night … I hope we gave a better account of our program than what you Mayfield fans saw from us last year … Good luck the rest of the way out ...
  16. Adamsville beat Lexington 13-7 ... Jax SS beat TCA 14-7 ...
  17. Union City beat Haywood 14-7 @ Dyersburg ... One of the TD drives was 18 plays long ... Doing what we do ...
  18. My name has been in my profile since the beginning … Never was anonymous … I had some great fun with Butchie ( Never will forget the story of the trip to Memphis and the playoff game with Manassas ), Greenfieldfan and the # 1 favorite Legend who woulda bet his house that Manassas was beating the 37-0 Golden Tornadoes in the 2008 State Championship game … Roy Dillard and his "Union County" posts … Funny stuff ...
