    I now understand why wb doesn’t schedule alcoa and greenback. They have so many more students than each of those schools and they don’t want to pick on them. Yeah, let’s go with that. Combining both county high schools would allow that team to open up a can of whoopa$$ on everybody.

    Good post! The lack of winning is due to either the players, the coaches, or both. It’s not somebody else’s fault. Hopefully there is an effort to talk to those ship jumpers to find out what can be changed to keep some there. Though it is definitely the easiest thing to do, simply bad mouthing them and the schools they transfer to doesnt improve anything.

    Murvil and alco both have one feeder school (without credit for recruiting). I had thought the combining of those two struggling county middle school football programs was a good thing? Heck, I would even offer that combining the blount county high school football programs could be a good thing after the hurt was gone. I don't know enough about the out of town middle school programs to know who is good and who is not. My kid's team scrimmaged Ocoee last year, and they were the best team we saw. I have no idea how big of a school they are. IMO-regardless of the sport, coaches of youth sports should try to schedule as many wins as losses AND losses as wins (i.e. a 4-4 or 5-3 team will learn more about itself than an 0-8 or 8-0 team). I'm keeping it at 6.5 for now and assume they scheduled well. The good people in LA deserve a winner!

    Just trying to be optimistic, but I’ll take a shot. The basketball team is competitive in most every game they play-both girls and boys. The baseball team must be doing pretty good-they may be county champs this year. To be honest, I don’t follow track or soccer-this is ET after all. The middle school program has been pretty good for several years in a row. Plus I’ve got a fridge full of orange and blue Gatorade, so I’m sticking with my early prediction. 4 patsies and 2-3 hard fought victories. O/U for wins is 6.5.

    To be more optimistic and enjoying the orange/blue Gatorade, I think the govs are gonna surprise people next year. The success of the other sports show that the athletes are still in LA. I think they win 2-3 on top of the 4 gimmes. AND...there will be a banquet!
  6. Things may not be currently racing in the right direction, but murvils got the right guy to sort it out. With only 25 kids on the middle school football roster this year, it may get worse the next several years when it comes to raising funds. Time will tell. There are several issues that must be addressed in the system to stop families from jumping ship. But nothing will be done without acknowledging that problems exist and that is always very tough to do.
  7. I remember playing baseball there back in the day. A Pistol Creek tractor pull could bring in some cash.
  8. Maybe some smoky mtn rasslin at halftime?
  9. 10-4. Heinz 57 here too I guess.
  10. I can’t ever figure who them people are... As for additional halftime entertainment, maybe a hot rod show?
  11. So 14 bucks a game? What could sweeten the deal enough to forget the xtra ticket price? Chair backs? Heated seats for the late season games? Terrible towels? A win vs alco? Guaranteed chicken sammiches? More halftime entertainment? Let’s hear it...

    Big win by the baseball govs tonight. I think they are undefeated. Football team needs to get some of that mojo.

  14. My experience at murvil was good. They let him play baseball in the spring. I don’t think they would have liked missing fall practice though. I would guess you would be treated like any other missed practice-xtra running.
