  1. Wow, no talk about AA Baseball - hard to imagine. Who is the favorite?
  2. Have watched Marty Wheeler coach from afar. I can tell you, you guys in Cleveland got a great coach and a great leader of young men. The teams at Covington high have always been well coached and well disciplined on and off of the field. Hopefully people will accept him and his ways, because I promise you, if you buy in, he will make that a winning program year in and year out.
  3. I did not say they were a fluke at all! They deserved to be where they were. You can only simply play the games in the conditions that you were dealt. Stratford played well throughout the playoffs for sure! There was nothing flukey about them. I was simply stating to the guy who was saying that "Stratford smashed Covington's head into the mud" that on a dry field Covington probably has a running clock.
  4. On a dry field, Covington beats this Stratford team by a lot. I can promise you that. The wet field conditions didn’t change how Stratfords big back wanted to run, but Covington’s speeds was 100% negated. I was quite surprise by the special teams of Stratford. After some of the comments on here this week i expected a lot less. They were better than Covington tonight on special teams.
  5. That may be true, and quite frankly i don’t blame him after Stratford’s coaches let his players parade up and down Covington’s sideline all game. If you want respect you must show respect. I can speak for the coaches from my team and they have nothing but good things to say about the staff at Covington. But then again, we tend to show respect to our opponents and usually do not have worry about teams not showing us respect as well.
  6. I agree!! I listened to the game last week when they played Milan and almost had to turn it off it was so bad. The comment about Covington having no class is pure comedy to me. That is the most unbelievable thing i have heard after what i just watched.
  7. I have no dog in this fight, as a fan from a team that is already out, but i was at this game and this statement could not be farther from the truth. If any team was classless, is was Stratford. They spent more time running down Covington’s sideline and taunting their fans than they did anything else. The officials threw quite a few penalty flags on Stratford, but i think they could have thrown one on every offensive snap. The Stratford Oline was false starting almost every snap.
  8. Making the trip in the rain tonight to see this one. Hopefully it will be a good game, but I really think Covington will win this pretty handily. We might see a running clock tonight. Wouldn't surprise me at all.
  9. Covington plays on an all grass field. Conditions have been rough the last couple of weeks with bad weather. Should see some good drying this week. The few games I've seen Covington play this year they have stopped the run extremely well. They definitely would prefer teams to run it instead of pass it. That being said, they had 3 or 4 interceptions last night against Milan. Their defense has played well all year, but seems to be peaking at the right time. Good luck stopping their rushing attack. They line up in the wing t with the qb under center as well as in the shotgun and have 4 guys who can take it to the house on any given carry. Their QB can sling it all over the field as well as run it with the best of them. Should be a good game, but I don't see how Covington loses this one. I watched them play 3 times this year and was more impressed after each game.
  10. Congrats to Stratford. What a great story!
  11. Sounds like a great game here. Looks like the winner is headed to the far west to play Covington
  12. Turn out the lights in Covington. Covington leads 22-0 with around 7 minutes left in the game. I must say, the radio broadcast from Covington is slightly disappointing. More like a comedy show.
  13. I love a good underdog story, but in 3A we all know Alcoa will be there. I also do not put much stock in a team that won 2 games in the regular season making it all the way to the state finals. The winner of the Covington/Milan game will be the lucky (or unlucky) team to play Alcoa in 3A.
  14. Looking forward to seeing what happens in this one. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it over to Covington to watch. Hopefully there will be a local radio station that will carry it or possibly someone will have a video stream of the game this Friday. As to the last post, bad weather the past few weeks definitely has most fields looking rough. Will be interesting to see how that slows down the rushing attack of Covington. I felt that last week the field conditions really hurt them.
  15. WOW!!!!!!! PC fans write another check that the team couldn't cash.....Seems like a trend
  16. Covington wins in a close one. 2nd time to watch covington play this year. Definitely did not look like the same team I saw at mid season. I think that the field condition certainly had something to do with it. Field seemed super wet and it was hard for kids on either team to keep their footing.
  17. Listen I agree that Alcoa is going to win it all again this year, but lets not forget and act like Covington did not have the ball with a chance to tie the game with about 10 minutes left in last years championship. Alcoa is the better team without a doubt, and is a heavy favorite, but they 100% did not steam roll Covington last year. Covington may or may not make it back to the title game this year, but either way I don't think Alcoa is going to beat them much worse than last year if they do.
  18. PC should have definitely beat covington last year. Will be interesting to see what happens this year. I believe Covington is better this year than they were last year. Not sure you can say the same about PC. Will be fun to watch if it happens.
  19. Have been watching Covington from afar while seeing SG play a few times. I really think Covington is going to take care of SG rather easily. I am not sure Covington will play a tough, meaningful game until 3rd or 4th round of the playoffs.
  20. I would agree. Covington probably has the best chance to be there with Alcoa again, but the result will be the same.
  21. Who seems to be the favorite in AA ball this year?
  22. Interested to see who some of the top teams in AA ball are. What are the thoughts?
  23. Congrats to Alcoa on the win and congrats to both teams on the great seasons. I thought Covington stuck around for alot longer than most assumed they would, including me. I think these teams were pretty evenly matched.
  24. Wow.....not sure what Covington was doing there. That should be the ball game
  25. Cant believe that play call. Alcoa had been running it down Covington's throat this drive.
