  1. As the co-host of Coaches Corner during basketball season let me answer your question. I believe the point Coach Trevathan was making was the big difference between Greenfield's enrollment and Union City's. He may have been calling them 2A because they are 2A in football. The classification breaks are what they are and unless they get a big enrollment bump the next two years Union City will continue to be one of the largest Class A basketball schools. Projections based on enrollments for the next two years have Loretto moving to AA and Summertown & Gibson Co. "on the bubble."

    Loretto enrollment number turned in for this classification cycle was 531. If they stay in that area they are pretty assured of moving to AA in two years. The reason they are still in A for now is they did not increase by 20% which is required to change classifications during a four year period. Classification is done every 4 years.
  4. As it has been pointed out, the site of the region tournament rotates between districts and this year is 13A's turn. I can assure you tournament organizers were not looking at having any "unfair advantage" when selecting UTM as its site. They were seeking a venue that would comfortably hold the crowds and UTM officials wisely see this as an opportunity to get high school kids on their campus. The folks in Carroll Co. & Bethel have done the same. It is an adjustment playing there but it will help whoever gets to MTSU. My suggestion would be 14A consider reaching out to Union for the same type arrangement. DeLay Gym holds nearly 2,000 which should be sufficient for district/region tournaments. Or certainly Oman Arena, which seats more than the Elam Center and hosted the NAIA Women's National Championships for 21 years until 2011. In these scenarios, 14A would have that advantage.
  5. No. This was the final poll. Frustrating for us but we do the best we can. As many on this site have said, the polls don't win you a gold ball but they do serve a purpose in getting recognition for young athletes. I'm sorry Manassas hasn't gotten theirs. I was able to nominate Catthadious Moore for Mr. Basketball & was glad he was named a finalist along with two great players from 14A.
  6. The voting site for the AP poll has had Manassas in the wrong classification all year! Several voters sent them messages to fix the it but it never got done. So please blame the AP not its voters. We wanted to show them love!

    West Tn Class A

    If you look back I was responding to pioneer42 saying he thought TCA would have given Greenfield a good game last year. Just reminding him they played 3 times. Has nothing to do with this year. Good luck in 14A.

    Greenfield beat TCA 3x last year by 16 & 15 in regular season and by 26 in region quarterfinals.

    West Tn Class A

    Something just to speculate about. The number of new charter schools in Shelby Co. is changing the landscape of Class A, lowering the potential cutoff. My projection, based on enrollment figures used for this two-year cycle, is that Gibson Co. will be "on the bubble" of possibly moving back to AA in two years. We shall see.
  14. Westwood is ranked 6th with one first place vote. I didn't vote them #1 but have them in my top 5. Talked to Hillcrest coach when they played in a tournament in Martin after Christmas and he told me Westwood was the best Single A in Memphis. That's the only 1st person info I've gotten so I've voted them both weeks. Added Manassas this past week after they blasted BTW. Maybe some frustration after two close losses to them. Longhorns having homecourt in region will certainly help.
  15. You're exactly right! East doesn't have a strong SOS because of playing a national schedule. Not sure why Westwood has gotten more votes than the teams from the other Memphis district but two from Region 8 are likely to get to Murfreesboro. Humboldt may have a shot if they play well in a Sectional home game.
  16. Just wanted you guys to know I voted Manassas this week. Once again no information sent from the Commercial Appeal or any other Memphis AP members and none of them even bothered to vote themselves! The rest of the voters across the state would vote for Dist. 15 teams if encouraged to by media who'd seen them. As stated before, without info from Memphis media we have to depend on CoachT SOS and it's not that high for either Manassas or BTW. That's why the "eye test" is important and we depend on Memphis media for that. SOOOOOO, blame your local media, not the rest of us. We're doing our best.

    Westview is in search of new Head Coach

    Westview has officially introduced Matt McConnell as its new head coach. McConnell comes to Martin from a stint as head coach at Waverly.

    Well said sir. As a former coach/educator I am all about giving the kids recognition.

    State poll

    Links to DNJ stories on Coach T front page
  20. As a voter from NW Tn I am somewhat familiar with Manassas & BTW but voters in other parts of the state are dependent on other sources. No one from Memphis media sent us information about Memphis teams and the Strength Rankings here on CoachT were not that high. I recognize the polls can be flawed and titles are won on the floor but they are not meaningless or laughable.
  21. That;s why you must look at the entire body of work.
