    Coffee County 2019

    There isn't a reputable HC around that will touch that job, so not sure what you were expecting

    I'm not gonna act like i know everything that went on, but Rankin went out of his way to stump for Thomas McDaniel when Oakland became open, and changed the trajectory of that program. In a way he's responsible for 2 powerhouses in RuCo. That is the not the act of someone who's a bad person. Rankin is really good at what he does and HS coaches don't get paid nearly enough, so I absolutely understand constantly pushing for pay raises. He left Riverdale in excellent shape, they had a team that should have won at least another title (maybe 2). But being so eager to move on from that era, Riverdale sowed the seeds of their own demise and the rise of Oakland over the last decade

    Class AAA Sectional Matchups

    If you want to win state, your gonna have to go through them anyways. Nobody remembers where you finished unless you got a gold ball in your case. Ask Brainerd

    Class AAA Sectional Matchups

    I'd rather go down against the best. Nobody is going to remember how you did unless you win state. Big chunk of this team will be back next season, assuming Anderson or McDonald dont decide to just focus on football

    Class AAA Sectional Matchups

    If if if. Oakland's best player transferred to a prep school before the season, yet they still found a way to get to this point. You want your district to get respect? Then you have to win in March

    Oakland v. Whitehaven Part II?

    Region 3AAA

    I think the same can be said for most Region 4 teams, especially when Bradley is the host. One of the toughest places in the state to win at

    Never said they were superior. But playing in the larger levels has it's own set of challenges, just like playing in the lower classes has it's different set of challenges. There are great players/coaches at every level, and defending one position meaning your criticizing another. I do enjoy the lower levels a little bit more bc their traditions/environment remain intact but with the larger schools, you get to see more of the kids who will be playing on Saturdays and maybe even Sundays

    Not sure how this got turned into a Oakland conversation when you specifically said TC would be filling up the trophy case if TC were in Gallatin's shoes. Calling people blowhards when your instantly assuming TC would win at the same level in 5A/6A under a HYPOTHETICAL is a little hypocritical. Not against small schools, but bigger isn't always better and presents it's own set of challenges and are not held under a microscope like bigger, high profile programs

    Being a 5A/6A school presents some challenges too. Your under a microscope alot more than TC ever will be. The number of teams in 5A in the hunt every year greatly outnumbers what TC will have to deal with. More high end talent means you have to manage egos/drama at some points during the season. Gallatin also has had to deal with areas counties around them growing exponentially over the years, a problem TC does not share since 2A is mostly rural schools Being in a bigger class means you also have to manage expectations sometimes bc there is a good chance you face a team that is better. You guys were ready to run off your coach this season, exactly the kind of hysteric behavior some TC fans have accused Gallatin of. It's not black and white, if you have Gallatin's talent your still not winning any titles going against championship level teams in 5A or 6A.

    TOP 10: Assistants in 6A and 5A

    Stephen Jackson, Oakland DC. He gets overshadowed because of the talent and the reputation of his boss, but the only reason he isn't a HC is by choice

    I'm going to start calling you Cheeto, in honor of our President that you seem set on copying in the way you post

    Lol no. Rankin isn't coming back to RuCo to get his butt handed to him by Oakland every year

    If it's who I've heard, interesting hire to say the least. I figured he would retire at his current program
