  1. Congratulations Sparta. Y'all just got a lot better
  2. Franklin County was very soft up front. Took terrible pursuit angles on Defense. Coffee County was faster and more physical, but had stupid penalties calling back 2 TD's and also turned the ball over 2 times. Both teams will be lucky to finish over 500. Because Stone Cold said so.
  3. Coach Dodgen would be a huge pick up for White County. People in Woodbury have gotten spoiled. They forget what the program looked like before he got there.
  4. Mark Lynn played on scholarship at MTSU back in the early 80's. Other than him and Micah Williams I cant think of anyone who played D1 Basketball. The problem at Coffee County is the AD. He is out of control. You get 2 years to win state at Coffee and if you don't Skipper will fire you. Just look how many Baseball, Football, and Basketball coaches the man has fired in only 4 years on the job. heck he's fired half the people he's hired. What a mess.
  5. Better show up about 2 hours early if you want a seat. Go Lions!
  6. Due to new staffs at Oakland and Blackman I think they go 9-1
  7. Coach Shadowens is a class act. The fact that Rutherford County has now lost Mcdaniel and Shadowens makes me believe that Murfreesboro wants to move from Athletic success and put more money into other areas. What I do know is Shadowens is a class act and they have lost a good man who does things the right way. A lot more of those kids in that building will respond to a HC than to a Principal. I think Oakland would be stupid not to hire him, and I also think Signal Mountain would be a good option for him. Good luck to the Coach and the Blaze football supporters.

    Cannon County looks to be off to a solid start going 8-3. Gonna be an interesting April
  9. DialItUp


    Cannon County has a pretty interesting team. 0 Seniors and only 4 Juniors. Strong showing against Dekalb. This is a group who has alot of potential to improve. Best of luck to everyone in 8AA this season.
  10. Coffee County Scott Farrar- Started 2 years at OT for UT in 76 and 77 Chris Elam- Most Rushing yards in a Season, 1997 All Star, more than 2,000 rush yards in 1997 Jake Nunley- Back to Back 2,000+ yards in 2003-2004.

Dominance over Coffee County. Wallace Wade- Coach at Fitzgerald and Clarke Military School in Tullahoma, winning a Championship in 1920. Went on to win 2 National Championships as Coach of Alabama. Duke University Football Stadium is named after him. Married a woman from Tullahoma.
  11. I am biased but I sure would like to see Sissom from Cannon County get it for AA. This is her 3rd year in a row being nominated and the young lady has had such a fantastic career. I would love to see her get the recognition.
  12. I played in the wing t in hs. My senior year we had 2 1000 yard backs and our qb threw for over 1500. The truth is, any offense, when executed correctly, can be successful. A previous poster mentioned the success in Georgia with the wing t and that is an excellent point. I personally think that the spread allows you to adjust for your players better and provides more balance whereas the wing t depends more on the run game. But I feel like as long as you have strong athletes and they understand your system and execute consistently you can win. In the end, maryville could've ran the power I, the run n shoot, and everything in between and they would've won state. The same with Alcoa and Fulton. Superior coaching and superior athletes with a tradition of excellence. X's and O's come way after.
  13. Alcoa made a STATEMENT in this game. What a performance. Congrats to Upperman and York on a great season. No shame in getting beat by Alcoa. Not too many teams better at any classification and maybe none are better coached. Looks like Gary Bob will be bringing another trophy home.
  14. I expect this to be a fantastic game. Alcoa is 100% the favorite. Upperman deserves to be respected though. Connor York is a great kid and an athlete that is a privilege to watch. Upperman also has very good linemen and the Butler kid is a solid back. I would be shocked if Upperman won, but anyone who doesn't think it is possible hasn't seen these boys play. Alcoa is Alcoa though so they should win. Good luck to both teams and congratulations on 2 fantastic seasons.
  15. Cannon has looked very solid already. Faulkner and Sissom have played outstanding. Good 5-0 start with blowout wins already against Rhea, Coffee, Grundy, Van Buren, and Sale Creek. They play Warren on Tuesday. District play will be fun to watch for sure. Probably the toughest district for womens basketball in the mid state this year at AA.
  16. After seeing Cannon, I really like what I see. Very tough Defensively and good outside shooting. Forced nearly 30 Turnovers against Coffee. Cannon isn't very flashy, but they will be a handful for anyone they face in the district. Just hard working blue collar type kids who can shoot very well and play outstanding defense.
  17. So any rumors about the job?
  18. Whoever, the next Coach is, I hope he experiences more stability than Coach Davis. In 3 years, Davis had 3 Principals, 2 Athletic Directors, 2 Superintendents, 5 Defensive Coordinators, No telling how many different position coaches, and this past year he lost his FB and RB due to their bad choices. The community never fully got behind the man because he didnt live there and he wasn't winning right away, and within maybe 6 months people started calling on him to be fired. He has numbers up and put several players into college that never wouldve went without him. What Coffee County wants is someone who will move in to the town, kiss their butts, let them run all over him, and still win 6 or 7 games a year. Coffee averages a new coach every 3 years. I understand why the firing happened but you have to have some stability in order to be succesful and the man never spent more than 8 months with his own DC. Also whoever the new coach is needs to be allowed to hire whoever he wants, which is a luxury Davis never had. There are too many claws in the program from people who don't know football, but think they are Nick Saban. We live in a town where we will shove the football team off the field to listen to the band play. This is not an attractive job to anyone with experience. Our only hope is to try and grab an up and comer, provide some stability with the administration, and let the man work and do things his way and just hope he doesn't leave. Too many good coaches have had below average records at Coffee and gone on to be successful. The kids there now are no less athletic than that 07 team, but they were Price's boys and grew up in that program and went on to have decent success. You can win at Coffee if there were ever some stability.
  19. Ive always felt schools like Warren County, Franklin County, and Coffee County should achieve more than they do, but if I had to pick 2 schools that consistently under achieve that would be Cookeville and Lebanon. These are schools who should be able to compete with anybody. Lebanon used to hold their own with Rutherford County, but now they havent had a winning season since 2006. Cookeville is an average team who always benefited from easy district schedules and STILL couldnt get past the first round or 2. Cookeville should be a consistent 9 or 10 win team in my opinion. Both schools brought in new coaches this year with great pedigree's and if Harp and Maynord can't turn these programs into contenders....it makes you wonder who can.
  20. Well for me, It was a toss up between Greeneville and Fulton and I looked at their schedules and I just feel Greeneville was more dominant. Fulton does have a fantastic team and they seem to be the popular pick this year, but I still think Greeneville will bring it home.
  21. If you look at stats, its a no brainer that it should go to Conner York. If he isn't at least a finalist that would be a shame.
  22. These are mine. None are a real stretch, but these are the favorites IMO. 1A- South Pittsburg 2A- Trousdale County 3A- Alcoa 4A- Greeneville 5A- Knoxville West 6A- Oakland DII A- Knoxville Webb DII AA- Ensworth
  23. MTSU will enter C-USA next year. It is definitely a step up in competition. How will they fare? Here is their schedule with Home games in BOLD. W WESTERN CAROLINA NORTH CAROLINA MEMPHIS FLORIDA ATLANTIC BYU ECU NORTH TEXAS MARSHALL UAB FIU SOUTHERN MISS UTEP My prediction is 6-6 with W's against Western Carolina, Memphis, FAU, North Texas, UAB, and FIU.
  24. I think it was a solid hire, but he will never match the unrealistic expectations of the UT fanbase. UT fans just need to hope they can stay above Kentucky, because if Mark Stoops gets it going there, UT and Missouri will be hanging out at 6th and 7th place in the East for a while. Just my opinion though.
