    Newport (Cocke Co.)
  1. Cocke County 48, David Crockett 28 early in the 3rd quarter.
  2. 1. Jeff. Co. 2. Morr. West 3. Morr. East 4. Sevier Co. 5. Cocke Co. 6. Seymour 7. Cherokee 8. South-Doyle
  3. Pats should be the main beneficiary of the new region format. Dropping Bearden, KDB, Campbell Co., and Science Hill and joing in with this region should vault Jeff Co. to the upper 4 every year.
  4. This game was a surprise to many that attended Friday night. Being down only 6-0 at the half, the Cougars still had a glimmer of hope for a monumental upset. The Cougar defense played well most of the night until the lack of depth took its toll midway through the second half. If the Cougars offense could have generated any yards at all, it may have been an interesting game. The PA man was everything he was hyped up to be - made the game more entertaining! I am very proud of the Cougar faithful that made the trip to Blount Co. - we made a lot of noise in a losing effort. With the development of some younger players, next year's Cougars team could be very good. We lose only about 5 key seniors and have alot of talented juniors and sophomores hungry for next season. The Cougars should certainly make the playoffs back-to-back, which will be huge for Campbell Co. I guess this the the part where I should wish the Govs good luck next week at Bearden. Sorry, but I can't be a hypocrite. The Bulldogs are in our region and have a class program. In addition, their OC is a former Jacksboro Middle School coach who is a class act. The Govs coaching staff pulled an Urban Meyer on the Cougars by throwing the ball deep downfield with less than 5 minutes to go with a 21-0 lead . . . like the Gaytors, I hope the Governors get what's coming to them. Call me a sore loser, but that last drive was in poor taste with the game already decided.
  5. What is the deal with Clinton? At the Jamboree they looked impressive. A very athletic QB, fast & strong RBs and a pretty big O-line. The Maryville game was no surprise - after all it was Maryville. But the AC score surprised me somewhat, especially after what Fulton did to AC. I hope they don't play tonight like they did in the jamboree or else the Cougars could be in trouble. On the other had, if the Cougars can control the trenches, they may just pick up a very important W going into their open date.
  6. Campbell Co. vs. Jefferson Co. has developed into a very heated rivalry, (one-sided, but fierce). As I watched the play-back of the game, the intensity of the hitting on both sides was very evident. From watching the film, it showed BOTH teams competing very hard in a smash mouth game. The film showed BOTH teams being the victim of some questionable calls from the officials. It appeared that BOTH teams did some posturing and mouthing after certain plays. Remember, these are young student athletes chocked full of testosterone and are fiercely competitive. To blame the loss on officiating or a phantom fumble/goal-line stop is not becoming of fans from a program with the pride and winning tradition that Jefferson Co. enjoys.
  7. Who are the players-to-watch for Powell? Is there offense balanced or is their strength the running game?
  8. THe thing that most impressed me about the Cougars in their 33-6 victory in Week 0 was the pursuit to the ball by the defense. The gang-tackling was so strong, it was very difficult to determine who to give credit to for the tackles. Very fast and aggressive Cougar defense this year.
  9. There is very little info about Powell this year. Powell is usually a playoff team, but some on Coach T have indicated they may not be as strong as usual. Does anyone have info on this year's Panthers? Strengths, weaknesses?
  10. In the early season matchup at Clinton, the Dragons rolled to a 28-0 victory over the Jacksboro Eagles. HOWEVER, the Eagles were without their starting QB/LB Bradley Hicks. Since Hicks returned the 3rd game of the season, the Eagles have been impressive. In addition, 3 of Clinton's score came on big plays of 60+ yards, including a recovered fumble returned for a 68 yard TD. I must admit I was surprised with the ease the Eagles defeated the Robertsville Rams (37-14) last week. If the Eagles bring the full team effort exhibited vs. the Rams, it should be a very interesting and hard fought contest. Once again, it is power vs. speed. If the Eagles can manage the clock and churn out the yardage and keep Clinton's outside speed contained, I feel they may pull off another big game. Eagles in a close one!
  11. Reports indicate that Chris Johnson skipped practice due to an unavoidable personal matter that was scheduled in advance that Coach Wells reportedly knew about. If it is confirmed that Wells' suspended Johnson for an unavoidable personal issue, the I-75 South pipeline may start flowing again like the days of old. Several Jacksboro Eagle Middle School footballers are watching this with great interest . . . To make matters worse, two current JMS footballers who are now Mavs (one Sr., one Frosh) are talking to the Eagle players about the virtues of the Anderson Co. football program - the recognition, absence of favoritism, playoff opportunities, weight room program, off-season workout regime, etc. This situation is so sad, because Coach Wells has worked so hard to turn the Cougar program around. With a very talented JV/Freshman team, the Cougars are poised to make noise in Region 1 if the talent stays at home and focuses on football. However, it is disapointing that very few Cougars and coaches were at the Eagle playoff game last Tuesday. Maybe some of them will make an appearance this week as the Eagles take on Robertsville. You can rest assurred some of the Maverick folks will be there.
  12. Thanks, bud. We just talked to some Cougars fans and they said the game was delayed due to rain and lightening. It appeared from the simucast that a middle section of the bleachers had collasped. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
  13. Why has the game between Campbell Co. and Dobyns Bennett delayed? I quit watching during halftime and the game has not resumed. It appears that perhaps a portion of the bleachers collasped on the visitors' side. Does anybody know any details?
  14. Jacksboro has a strong defense and a pretty good power rushing attack. Robertsville has eliminated the Eagles the last 3 years in the playoffs, but this time the game is at Jacksboro. Both teams defeated Horace Maynard rather easily, Jacksboro 24-0 at HMMS the 5th game of the season and Robertsville won in the 1st round of the playoffs 34-6 at home. Power vs. speed. Should be a great match-up, but without knowing hardly anything about Robertsville, I like the roll the Eagles are on. Jacksboro in a nail-biter.
  15. We're still here Peeblee, but you know the old saying "If you can't say anything good, don't say anything at all". I am very disappointed for the team this year. So many of them work so hard and give so much, it is sad to see the support for them faltering. I am going to feel like a "fair-weather" fan this week. Instead of making the 3 hour trek to DB, I am taking the night off to celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary. Here's hoping me and the Cougars both get lucky!
