    Who goes to the glass house in 1A

    I never said kids transferred because of academics only but that is a big reason for sure. I did say if kids want to go to a better school. they should be able to without any penalty. Look at the gentleman’s post above. He actually moved but stated that he wanted his son to have a better education. That was one of the determining factors.

    Fulton vs Wooddale..thoughts

    Lol! First of all, I have the utmost respect for Jody Wright. He will be a Hall of Fame coach for sure. Second, yes he knows his team better than me for sure but they lost the game. The thread is Fulton vs Wooddale thoughts, can I not give my thoughts on the game? Lol! Your feelings must still be hurt the 3AAA Champion came East. LMAO! There will be more gold coming back East in the fall. Book it! Will you agree that Bearden had a better nucleus of talent than Whitehaven? You questioned me in a earlier post about it. Just curious?

    Why do you think private schools are thriving in Tennessee? Do you think it has to do with academics at all? There are still some very good public schools but if you were to compare test scores the private schools are typically much higher. Private schools in the very near future will dominate Tennessee sports and academics because of attitude like yours. I'm actually a public school supporter but can see where this is headed.

    Fulton vs Wooddale..thoughts

    So you thought playing man to man gave them the best chance to win the game. Did you watch the game? His starting center had 2 fouls in the 1st quarter. HELLO? I played against Jodie his first year as coach for Fulton. I've known him for sometime and respect the job he has done at Fulton. That doesn't mean I can't critic his strategy in that game.

    Hard to question Jody Wright but I would have played a zone defense of some sort. Especially after Page got into early foul trouble.

    I seen Bearden play 3 times this year and was very impressed. Bearden just had a real good mixture of talent in their starting 5. I went 20 for 21 in the state tournament in the big ones contest.

    Geez! Maybe that would make schools become more competitive in academics. People are going to want their kids to get a good education to. What if a kid lives in a school district that is below academic standards? Should that kid be penalized for wanting a better education and he or she happens to play sports? I personally don’t think so but I’m sure you and several others might disagree. What if it was your kid in that situation? Would you still feel the same way?

    LOL! Pointing out that this happens in Memphis a lot. I could go on with examples through the years but that's not my intent. People were talking about CA's team and I was just pointing out the obvious. Like I said in the post basketball is different than most the other sports. I personally believe kids should play where they want to play without any penalties. Some people wouldn't like this but is it not about the kids?

    First of all congrats to CA on a great year! You showed Tennessee that you were the best in 1A this year. Second I'm tired of reading all the whining about players transfering in to play basketball. I didn't hear anyone complaining about Memphis Hamilton last year. They had 3 players that played for someone else the year before. They won 2AA last year. The Memphis school do this ALL THE TIME. Plus basketball is different than a lot of the other sports. What I mean by this is the AAU ball. Most of the players play together or play against each other. So they might transfer a little more than in other sports. Thats just how it is.. I don't have a solution for any of this but all schools are not always going to have the same playing field. Again congrats to Columbia Academy on a great year.

    Congrats to the Bearden Bulldogs on a State Championship. They had a great team this year.

    If that happens then Knoxville will have more gold than Memphis in basketball. LOL!

    I'll take Bearden in 3AAA in what should be a great game. 2AA should be another great game with Fulton and Wooddale. I'll take Wooddale in a real close game. In 1A I'll take Columbia Academy in the last game of the day. Should be a good day of basketball.

    I believe Columbia wins it tomorrow. They don’t really have that many weaknesses.

    Lol! Maybe you know what I'm talking about now. That have a better nucleus of talent and play better as a team. Senior laden team that has been here. Your bias couldn't see that but now you do. Bearden is for real and they should have a chance to win it tomorrow. I actually gave Whitehaven too much credit.

    Murrell is the best athlete on the floor tomorrow, no doubt. The shot he hit against Southwind was unbelievable. That’s the play of the year for Whitehaven so far.
