  1. I know what you’re saying but we have just started a new cycle of non-district games to play for the next two seasons, and Liberty has been horrible in the past two seasons. Therefore, it’s a cupcake game. I know the current situation Liberty is in, and the news you’re telling me, isn’t nothing new to me.
  2. You said something about giving Haywood a compliment for scheduling Olive Branch and kind of threw a shot (when I know you weren't trying to) at everyone else for scheduling cupcake teams. However, Haywood plays Liberty this week, which is a cupcake team, with a lot of icing on it.
  3. I know a lot of football teams want to use the “next man up” as a cliche for their team, but you can’t necessarily say the “next man up” as a reference when a lot of people have Holt down for consideration as a finalist for Mr. Football. Luckily for Holt, UTM offered him, but it does suck for him as well because several FBS schools will be highly interested in the kid if he had another big season. In terms of the game, I was going to go with Haywood in the 35-24 area, but with Holt out, I doubt the Indians will score 20. As weird as this sounds, North Side can still finish top-2 in their district, depending on if they can beat Hardin County or not for the championship game.
  4. “Haven’t seen the sped Haywood has” .... we have only played 1 game??
  5. Thank you guys for scheduling us for the 2019-2020 seasons. Appreciate it, and we are not scared of playing teams that are in higher classifications than what we are currently in. I do think we will get wore down at times during the season, but it'll worry me a lot in November. Thanks for the improvements to our stadium as well. We haven't had any improvements in more than 15 years, and obviously it was much needed.
  6. Jackson Sun only covers 13 counties throughout West Tennessee. The only county that is up north that they cover is Weakley County. I believe they exclude Dyer and Obion Counties as well. That’s the reason why they don’t cover Lake County
  7. It's okay broski, these two extra practices is not going to increase Milan's favorites to win state.
  8. I agree with you in terms of steaming games, especially in rainy weather. But I don’t agree with you in terms of what’s on TV for that night. I looked at the Friday nights college football schedule, and the only marquee matchup that’s worth staying in is UCF @ Cincinnati. I don’t think anybody will skip a high school football game just to watch Tulsa @ Michigan State in the first week of the season. Everybody now has the luxury of recording games/shows now. I am somewhat confused when we are talking about attendance going down. Is it the average of the attendance in a football, or the total attendance (from all schools in Tennessee) going down? If it’s average, I can see it because there are more schools now than there was 10 years ago. I can’t buy into the “total attendance” because I would figure there are now 9 classifications in Tennessee, and everyone seems like they’re a playoff team, so it doesn’t make sense to me that the total attendance will be going down.
  9. Yes and I agree, but I think if this time is developed well, they should be in the mix for the playoffs. They can take care of their easy schedule and beat teams that they should beat or be in those games. The Scott’s Hill game will prove to me (probably all of us) of how much improvement they have. Making the playoffs is a win for this team and the community.
  10. I looked at Humboldt's schedule and it is fairly easy, but I have no problem for them having an easy schedule based on the current status of where the Vikings are at. Their first three games is Memphis East, Halls, and West Carroll. They should win 2 of 3 if all goes well. They should win at least two of the four between Lake County, Fulton County, Greenfield, and Gleason. If they beat South Fulton, then they should have the confidence to stay in the game with Scotts Hill. Needless to say, I won't be surprised if Humboldt goes .500 if all goes well. And if they make the playoffs, then that should at least bring somewhat excitement back into the program.
  11. Yes, that was going to be my next game. I think it's more intriguing for South Side because they will be the "underdog" in that game that could potentially win it if their players developed well this offseason.
  12. I pretty much took a quick glanced at everyone's schedule for the 2019 season, and there are some interesting non-region games. Yes, there are some games that you expect (Milan/Peabody and Haywood/Henry County) that really aren't intriguing anymore other than rivalries or the fact they have played almost every year for the past 4-6 seasons. So here's my games that are interesting. Hardin County @ McNairy Central. Could McNairy Central take the "next step" in 2019 and can Hardin County finally win their region? Union City @ Lake County. Lake County fans are excited to play Union City, and they are confident they can beat them. However, will Union City be the Union City we usually know or will they go back to being a .500 team like they were in 2018? Middleton and South Fulton. One school is less than a mile away from Kentucky, and the other is less than 5 miles away from Mississippi. It's an interesting game based off traveling. Scotts Hill @ Humboldt. Why Humboldt? If Humboldt just improves week by week in 2019, they have a chance to beat Scotts Hill. This is a game in late October and could potentially determine the growth of the Vikings. Gibson County @ Westview. It's a matchup that I think is interesting because Gibson County is probably the better team, but Westview's Quarterback will probably be the best player on the field. Also, this is a game in August that fans will tell how good their team is when they leave this game. If there are anymore, feel free to share. Let's have fun with this!
  13. We are talking about attendance issues here, not classification issues. Here's my two cents on what I believe is what's going on, especially in West Tennessee (I don't know if this will relate to y'all Middle/East TN folks). Our teams that were powerhouse teams, aren't currently powerhouse teams anymore. Example number one is Camden. I haven't been to a Camden game in a few years, but they haven't been to the second round of the playoffs since 2015. In addition, they had a 2 win season sandwiched between 6 win seasons. It wasn't too long that we can guarantee Camden as a 8-10 win regular season team, with an opportunity to play on Black Friday. Second is Lexington, they are down and down bad. Lexington's stadium is big, but I would hate to see the revenue money they have brought in compared to years past. Humboldt is bad. There's no excitement in McKenzie. Westview is not a good football team. Ripley has been bad for years now. South Gibson is, ehh. And these schools are "one-city schools" like they're not competing with other schools just to get every penny they can get. Truth is, there are programs that were really good a decade ago, they aren't good anymore. And fans aren't going to spend money watching bad product, just like fans aren't going to spend money watching a bad money or go to a bad concert, they just aren't. I don't think this has to do with classification issues, we are talking about attendance, not money.
