  1. Looking forward to getting out and seeing some high school football spring practices. Anyone know when their teams will start spring or know of any scrimmage dates.
  2. Maryville hit the field yesterday for the first time this spring. Word from the Barber Shop that Heritage will start their spring practice today.

    Maryville vs DB... most players in the NFL?

    I was really surprised that Jay Guillermo didn't make it to the pros especially after being on a National Championship team and being All-ACC his senior year as a center. But then again what do I know, I'm a dog.

    Govman if your counting this season this will be year 41 of WB Football. 1979-2018 is 40 full years. So one of you are ahead by one year if you are counting this up and coming season. These figures do not include the new common core or toilet paper math they use today.

    If the team focuses on 7 on 7 then where do the linemen fit into this equation.

    Great TV exposure could bring in new jobs and transfers if nothing is on the other channels that night, Who knows maybe the owner of Amazon could be watching in that night, he still hasn't found a new location yet. You never know.

    I personally despise 7 on 7 drills and it's a total waste of time. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad if you took a lineman or maybe two and rushed the QB soon as the ball was snapped giving them only a second or two just like a real ballgame to make a passing decision. That would allow the defensive linemen an opportunity to get involved in drills also. Seems like I may have went to the first year or two of it at Maryville College but between that and the jamboree their both useless as titties on a bullfrog.

    It's funny you mentioned this because I was talking to Coach Story about the first year game being 17-0 this morning at Hardee's and he quickly changed the conversation to the next year when Maryville won 62-14. His very words to me was that WB was so awful that we had our third string in and they still couldn't stop us. He had the funniest look on his face then said what do you do in a situation like that, "tell your kids not to score".

    Back then the game was built around defense completely and so many rule changes have happened over the years that it's not even the same game as it used to be. That Maryville team went to the AA Championship that year and lost in the last minute when driving the ball deep inside the other teams side and fumbled the ball over on a sure bet drive. The player that fumbled the ball had went to Lanier the year before and smashed every record in the books there but somehow ended up at Maryville which made all the natives pretty mad at William Blount. Maybe that fumble was WB's Karma in the end.

    The very first game William Blount played was against Maryville in 1979 40 years ago at WB which the Rebels won 17-0. If a bunch of boy's from Friendsville and Lanier and a few skallywags left over from Everett weren't afraid to take on Maryville the very first game then why should this group be. If Maryville ends up being the toughest game then get it over with and it gets easier from there.

    My guess would be the Principal this morning when he saw the headlines in the local paper and somebody had to throw cold water on him.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to paint you up like a villain but only trying to explain that he wouldn't mention anything about a player. The whole point was to let Barnaby Jones know his sense of clues were way off. A friend of mine posted that Morristown Meme on facebook that evening just as you saw it and I got on Coach T and saw the new Mo Town East Thread that had only one post that was a day old waiting for a reply. So I did what me or you are famous for so I figured I would add a little foot traffic into the room so the guy wouldn't just hang there. Didn't mean to set the guy on fire like I did though. I can tell from your post that you have been burned in one way or the other by Shad so it's payback time which have been pretty funny. You have definitely upset the applecart at WB or they wouldn't all be lined up whining to Coach T. Like I said earlier in a post that I will not say anymore that would insult the fans of WB because I do pull for all the teams in Blount County.

    The message board on Coach T has nothing to do with the problems with William Blount. 90% of everyone I ask if they read it have never heard of it and most of the other 10% tell me for the most part that it's a group of adults that can't believe they're out of high school and won't move on with the rest of the pack their age because their caught in some kind of time warp. Then another group that are on it like coaches making sure someone hasn't got on here and pushed the envelope off the table. There are a few fans on here but for the most part only the posters and damage control coaches. Also while we're on the topic of Mr. Young I can certainly assure you he would never do something your claiming. He would take it right to your face if he had a problem. He has done a great job with the middle school and turned what was really looking bad at one time into a very respectable football program. You sure don't see anyone on here arguing or posting anything negative about that unless they were maybe jealous for some reason. I can also assure you Mr. Young would never call down a player or a kid if he were the shadroach and I can promise you that. I for one am very proud of the great work he has done and hope he stays long as he can go.

    moonie that is a good question? Word was running ramped last year Hammontree was going to leave but it looks as if he is staying put. Most of his starters will be back since there were only seven seniors left at the end of the season which is good news but the middle school only had 23 players on the team which wasn't very good and that is the bad news. I've always said this that Eagleton was where some of the best football players come from and the time back in the early 90's when the county dropped their football program which was really Heritage's feeder program it totally destroyed Heritage Football ever since. Even though they restarted it back years later the damage was done. You can look back on Heritage won loss records since then and that is where it all started from. I would love to see them get back on track again but many have tried and many have failed. My biggest complaint from last year was that the coach dropped JV and freshman teams soon as the season started. Sure they had a lot of kids quit but they still had enough to play JV. That really hurts the future of a program when so little got a chance to gain any experience whats so ever and you have starters going both ways playing the entire 48 minutes.

    There for a minute yesterday I thought Pete Schweddy must have moved to town.

    Good news today is that there is nothing negative in the paper about Blount County Schools, the bad news though are for those that have been bad tippers lately.

    Only two I know of and that is Jim Cowboy Hill and Danny Spradlin.

    The whole thread is a squeaky wheel and CoachT who is a great guy ask for it to cease which I will comply. He doesn't need a bunch of headaches and problems with what all he has been through the past few years without us burdening him with post that have sent a group of whiners and complainers to his doorstep.

    You might say the squeaky wheel got greased yesterday.
