  1. Congratulations Turtle, thought you might like this blast from the past when they won the state in 2001.
  2. When going to the other side to take a crap at Alcoa always remember to maintain eye contact and establish dominance.
  3. If our leadership had put some kind of impact tax on all the people moving here from other areas and slowed this invasion down they would have had all the money they needed. Instead they allowed those people to move in and flood an already overburdened infrastructure buying up our properties driving prices through the roof and not getting a red cent for the damages they have caused. When someone sells a home in California for $2 million and comes to Tennessee and buys the same thing he had there for $600,000 an impact fee of 25 to 50 K would have paid for all the problems they have burdened our infrastructure with. Our leaders have no insight apparently on the future problems they have overlooked that will come back on all of us. If you are a lifetime resident of Blount County and you sell your home you cannot buy back what you just sold. I could write a book but we all know what's going on. This will all come tumbling back on everyone that lives here eventually and I hope I'm not around to see it.
  4. The original goal post from the old Everett High School last played on in 1976.
  5. Makes you wonder how Knoxville will pay for all of theirs when the time comes. Not sure the Haslam's would have any more vested interest since they've sold all shares in the Pilot.
  6. Congratulations to Alcoa's AD for being on the ball and bringing it to the attention of the school board that the field may not pass an impaction test the next time in getting the funding for a new field to be installed here shortly. I was under the impression these fields were to last longer than this but you can look at one that is 8 or 9 years old and has a glaze look across the field. Didn't realize there was a impaction test on these fields so some of these schools better be ready when the piper calls because $750K is a lot of money.
  7. This is just stupid silly how long all this took when they could of got this all out front and done with and moved on. During all this time you would have thought they were doing a large background check, Ancestry DNA Test and a anal probe before KCD was satisified.
  8. Heritage lost a lot of good players from the year before last and had a lot of youth playing for the first time. Heritage overall before the staff that is there now has been the biggest dumpster fire in the East Tennessee High School Football area for much of the past 35 years. Heritage did shutout Lenior City 35-0 and actually played some good football against a few decent teams towards the end of the year. I wouldn't count out this DC, just saying.
  9. Shad wasn't really that bad of a coach. Don't think he had ever experienced anything like William Blount. He came from a school that had a lot of money support at Blackman and had the ability to do things there he couldn't at William Blount. Actually he did a good job at Eagleton the year before last. Catholic has money to get what he needs like a DC that Heritage can't match.
  10. Last season during fall scrimages I went and watched them play against William Blount and I could tell from that scrimmage they would finally end that losing streak that went on for five years or 45 games from what I saw that day. I'm sure this coach is trying hard to build a foundation for this team which was easy to see. Rome wasn't built in a day and neither are high school football programs that have laid in ruins for that long. The biggest question at Sequoyah is how much can a person take of the poor leadership that runs the school system before they can't handle it anymore and leave.
  11. The defense gave up 35 points a game if that's moving in the right direction but I won't be a smart azz about it because they were young. If they lose someone on staff there I'm pretty sure school won't be shut down a day to grieve over it. Coach Oz would be happy for anyone moving up the ladder in their career and knows who to call next if that were to happen. Any coach that has been at the level he has been knows to always be ready when they have to make that call.
  12. I'm pretty sure he will find someone just as he did when he put a staff together two years ago. This past year was a really young team but managed to score 290 points on offense. Go back two years ago and they scored 85 points for the entire season and got mercy ruled 6 different times. The only benefit going to those games was discounted concession stand food in the second half as time flew off the clock. Take it from Barney, Coach Oz knows more in one of his finger nails then any of us Coach T quarterbacks know in our entire body. This man walked into one of the biggest messes in Tennessee High School Football and blew air into a lifeless cadaver and brought it back to life. Go back and watch that Central game from last year where most teams would have given up and those boy's didn't give up and came back. Even though they lost they came an inch of pulling it off. Never thought I would live to see the day anyone could go out there and do what he has so far.
  13. The New Word of the Day at Austin-East is "Freight". I've been hearing they got their man and waiting on KCS to approve their offer "Freight" Days now.
  14. I certainly know of everyone that has coached there.
  15. This is Todd Helton not to be confused with Todd Helton. Congratulations on taking over at Carter.
