  1. Let's use this forum to help teams fill out their football schedules for the 2011 and 2012 seasons, if possible, by hooking up teams who have the same dates to fill. For instance ... Does anyone need a Week 1 game? In Mayfield, Ky., where Mayfield and Graves County high schools are located, those two schools host the Jackson Purchase Alliance Bowl. The date in 2011 is Saturday, Aug. 27. The date features a doubleheader with Graves County (Ky. 5A; enroll 1300) and Mayfield (Ky. 1A; enroll 350) alternating as hosts (which is not a big deal since their stadiums are w/i sight of each other and right off the Purchase Parkway). The 2011 games will be played at Graves. ... Madisonville-North Hopkins of Ky. has already signed on, so only one team is needed. Cordova and West Creek have reportedly shown interest, but neither has committed. ... It's a 2-year commitment, and the team will play Graves one year and Mayfield the next. ... Trousdale played in it the last 2 years, losing to Mayfield in a high-scoring thriller 2 years ago and then routing Graves this past season. So, let's see if we can get a team to fill this date, and let's get other teams together, too.
  2. Union City and Lake County boys are playing in the Time Piece Roundball Classic at Graves County, Ky., High School Dec. 19, 21 and 22. Pass along some info on both teams, and let me know how you think our Tennesseans will fare in Bluegrass country! Here's the schedule: Time Piece Roundball Classic Dec. 19, 21, 22 Graves County High School (Boys only) Sat. Dec. 19 Session I 10 a.m. Heath vs. Saltfleet (Canada) 11:30 a.m. Union City vs. Graves County 1 p.m. Murray vs. Lake County Session II 5:30 p.m. Union City vs. Heath 7 p.m. Graves County vs. Murray 8:30 p.m. Saltfleet vs. Lake County Mon. Dec. 21 Session III 5:30 p.m. Heath vs. Lake County 7 p.m. Graves County vs. Saltfleet 8:30 p.m. Murray vs. Union City Tues. Dec. 22 Session IV 5:30 p.m. 5th-6th place game 7 p.m. 3rd-4th place game 8:30 p.m. 1st-2nd place game
  3. Well, I'm planning on going to this one. ... I've been to classic Union City-Huntingdon games at historic Paul Ward Stadium -- an outstanding football venue, btw -- and I'm looking forward to this one. ... Might even have to bring the camera and snap a few shots.
  4. Well, I'm a little disappointed that this thread has strayed from its original intention, which is Trousdale County vs. Mayfield. ... It should be a great game, maybe one of the best in both states this season. Trousdale, despite a few injuries coming in, has great skill players and does an outstanding job in the wing-T. The players' hard work in the weight room has certainly paid off. Several players have become good at several different positions, which creates depth while keeping the top athletes on the field. Again, weight room work and conditioning comes into play here. And, it's pretty cool to have a head coach 16 games into his tenure w/o a loss. Mayfield is a much better team than the one that was 7-6 last season. The offense stepped on the practice field the first day of preseason drills as being two TDs better than last year's bunch. The Cardinals have amazing skill people and will try to keep TC off-balance with a nice mix of run and pass. The team has become equally effective out of the I-formation and the Tony Franklin spread set (btw, he was a Mayfield assistant in the mid-90s). Big play is the goal on every snap. Like most all games do, it's going to come down to who controls the line of scrimmage and who can make plays on defense. Defense will be critical b/c both teams are so skilled and efficient on offense. So, if possible, let's bring the discussion back to Trousdale vs. Mayfield. And, come Saturday night, find a way to get to Graves County High School in time for the 6 p.m. kickoff. ... Coming via I-24 thru Ky and down the Purchase Parkway? Well, you'll get to Mayfield and pass by Exit 27, then pass by Exit 25, then look for the big school on the right. One of the huge campus buildings has an Eagle on it with the words "Eagles Nest." That's GCHS's 4,500-seat gym (it is a basketball state, after all). Take that very next exit and go right. Take a bus, take horse-and-buggy, take two and call me in the morning but find a way. It could be one heckuva football game. Game Of The Century going in; Instant Classic coming out. ... Hey, that's pretty good. I might have to use that.

  9. You know, I've always liked the top-loaders. So, I really like Gibson County and Martin Westview. Believe it or not, I've never been inside "Central Station" home of the Obion County Central Rebels. If you cross the state line into extreme western Kentucky, you'll find that Marshall County, Graves County and Mayfield all have nice arenas with plenty of seating. ... In fact, why don't you get on up to Graves this weekend for the 2-day 3-session, 10-game First Kentucky Bank Shootout. Westview's boys and girls, Manassas, Briarcrest and Maplewood will all be there. See, even in the Bluegrass, they know where REAL basketball is played. /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" /> OK, back to the topic. Gibson County and Westview, and I like Trenton, too.
  10. Union City ... built all wrong b/c some artsy fartsy politician some 30-plus years ago said the town needed a civic auditorium tacked onto the school. So, they cut it into the gym, which barely seats 1,000 (I don't care what they say) and has never been big enough for sub-state/sectional games. bleachers should have been replaced 10 years ago, maybe 20, and the court is too small, even by junior high standards, with front row so close that people walking to and from their seats during a game actually have to dodge the players on the court. And, oh yeah, to get from upstairs to downstairs and vice versa, you can't just walk up and down a set of steps in the bleachers. You have to go outside the playing area. ... It is not worthy of a 5-time state champion team. It's not even worthy of a bad team. .... Needless to say, I've never liked it.
  11. Take it from someone who knows a little about the Graves gym and school: Purple's right. Get there if you can. Stay for the whole event in fact. Two days of pretty good basketball, but certainly get there to watch Manassas. And, come down and say "Hi!" to me. I'll be the big, tall guy with the camera.
  12. I love the teams that wear the Maryville helmet year-in and year-out. The best around. Wish they were able to play a national schedule (one game a year maybe, like in the Ohio vs. USA challenge).
  13. Actually, it was his son's choice, and he supported that choice. If he deserves an award, it should be for supporting his son.
  14. And, no, we're not expecting a state championship next year. We know these things take time ... say, 2009! /roflol.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":roflol:" border="0" alt="roflol.gif" />
  15. First item: With one very notable absence, of course Second item: More interesting, as in who's gonna finish second.
