  1. I have a friend whose daughter wants to play travel ball in the fall.
  2. That statement is not very fair. In a broad sense, you may think you know what you are talking about. Any board or director that don't care about kids is in the wrong line of, for lack of a better word, work. Speaking individually about the board "not caring about the students" is not a fair assessment. That hits a lot closer to home for some than it does for others.

    7-AA

    Sloppy game for Dekalb? LA issued 8 walks and also hit 5 Dekalb Co. hitters. LA had 10 hits to DC's 6. Home plate ump was tight on both sides but a little tighter on LA IMO. In the first 3 innings LA was hammering the ball. The last DC pitcher did a good job of shutting LA down.
  4. I am 100% in favor of a shot clock. You wouldn't see any 34-32 ballgames.
  5. The game is over and the "trash talking" is just a part of what makes Coach T an interesting website. As a rule, I normally don't trash talk because I spend most of my time trying to predict the future. IMO, this game can be spun however you want to spin it but the best team won the game. That is no disrespect to LA, but a compliment to Bolivar. They pounded the offensive and defensive boards. When I looked on the TSSAA website, I was dumbfounded to read LA was only outrebounded 38-32. #11 and #30 were rock solid guards. LA definitely did not play one of their better games, but most of that was due to what Bolivar did. 32-3 is not too shabby. For the seniors, hats off to them for their careers at LA. Just thinking about this group of kids being seniors makes me feel older than I already feel. I remember C.West from the time he was in the pitching machine league in baseball. I remember JP playing on a couple of the Outlaw teams I helped coach. I remember Ramsey in the bantam tournament and even then everybody was talking about how big he was. I remember Petey playing Jr Pro in the semifinal game against the team my kid played on. WP's team was down 1 with :07 left in the game. The opposing coaches told their team not to let Will get the ball. Well, he got the ball drove the length of the court and got fouled with :01 left. He calmly stepped to the line and knocked down both FT's giving his team the win. As for C.Dunn, believe it or not he played on an Outlaw team I helped coach and was one heck of a runningback. I also remember he was draining 3's like it was nothing when he was in the 4th grade. Chase is one extraordinarily talented player. Oh well, enough with the reminiscing. As I said, it just makes me feel OLDER. Hold your heads high seniors, you played your hearts out. As for next year's returners, work hard and get prepared and maybe another trip to Murfreesboro might be possible. /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
  6. Unfortunately, I did not make it to the game as I had another obligation to fulfill. However, I was told about the chant and that is without question classless. We all, as adults, know that most student sections are going to get a little rowdy at times. We can only hope that the students will use a little common sense when it comes to figuring out where to draw the line. If they struggle with the"drawing the line" concept, then that is where the school administrators must step in. And when I speak of administrators, I am speaking of coaches, the principal, or even members of the faculty. As for the Dekalb kids, it may be an effort to re-organize the infamous "Heada's army." Most on here are probably not old enough to remember that "crew" but believe me they were radical. If you look at their name, it shouldn't take you long to figure out the implication. All students should support their school, but do it in a way that the players, coaches, and the community can be proud.

  7. OK here I go again. LA 75 DC 57 No Mercy /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
  8. OCF, it appears we have this uncontrollable urge to predict the future. I do agree that LA will play much better this time. Thus, I'm picking the Lady Cats: LA 61 SC 59 As for the other semi-final: Upperman by a bunch. No Mercy /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
  9. No disrespect to the other candidates, but White Co. would be wise to hire Houser. He is an intelligent, energetic, football smart young man. He, without question, will put his heart and soul into the job. He has an enormous passion for the game. My son played for him for one year and I can assure you he thought the world of him. He will work his boys hard and by no means will he accept less than maximum effort from his players. If White Co. wants an up and comer to boost there football program, Houser will fill the bill.
  10. I agree with all this except the finals. LA by 7 in the finals. No Mercy /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
  11. Glad somebody knew what I was talking about. No Mercy /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
  12. I will reveal a secret that not a lot of people know about the "hairless wonder." His favorite baseball player of all-time is Hal Morris who played most of his career with the Cincinnati Reds. He also says Hal is the best hitter to ever play.
  13. Let's hire Daniel Caffey to see if we can get a change of venue. Jake Brigance failed in his attempt for a change of venue. No Mercy /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
  14. I remember when Jake Brigance requested a change of venue. He was quickly turned down. But, he won anyway. Sort of what I think will happen in this scenario as well. LA wins the Region. No Mercy /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
  15. Does anybody know the individual point totals for last night's game? The Tennessean does not have it. That's pretty weak on somebody's part for not calling it in. I don't know if that's TTU's job or not. Anyway, if anybody knows the numbers I'd like to see them.
