  1. Thank you! That doesn't seem to be as much as a game changer as I had thought.
  2. http://www.nwcaonline.com/nfhs-releases-rule-changes-for-2019-20-season/ Can someone please explain the change of the stalling call and how it will affect a match?
  3. I believe the rule is 45 minutes from the last strike. if 10:40 was the last one then start time would have been 11:25
  4. As a former coach, I hate the idea of a non-game. BUT, if the weather absolutely did not allow us to play, I would much rather take a no contest for a non-region game than lose a day of preparation for a region game the following week. Especially if the non region game had considerable travel. Just my opinion.
  5. By "rolling" i meant finding success and getting some W's. No I don't believe they will beat Maryville. I am not sure of the rest of their schedule, but I don't seem them beating West or Oak Ridge either. HOWEVER, young teams tend to improve very fast, and usually are completely different by the end of the season compared to the beginning. Right now I would predict them to finish 4th in their region, but being very competitive by playoff time. If they play either of those two teams mentioned in their region in weeks 8 9 or 10, then I do think they may have the ability to pull of an upset. Only time will tell on that though. Regardless- I do predict them to get a W this week!
  6. It very well could be! If so, look for that to be a close one up until kickoff at 7:30
  7. Probably looked less impressive because they were playing a tougher opponent. Halls wins the next 2, drops 3 in a row, wins the last 2. Finishes 7-3 and 3rd in region 2. If they improve each week they may even pull out a 1st round playoff off win on the round against Region 1's number 2. Congrats Coach on a successful first season.... However I wish your schedule was a little less predictable.
  8. I think Fulton gets a win this week and starts rolling for the rest of the season.
  9. The same way Halls "stoled" the sophomore WR from Gibbs? Let's cover our own tracks before we start pointing fingers. Transfers happen all across the state, I wish they weren't as common as they are now, but the fact is that every school takes in kids from different zones at some point. I know I am going to regret quoting you, because judging from your grammar, I believe (or hope) that you are still a student at Halls.
  10. Did not know that! any other notable moves across the state? Besides 8th grades going into high school, I don't follow the middle schoolers, so all those kids would be new to me anyways.
  11. Is bates the kid that was at Beech, then went to Baylor? If so, where is he now?
  12. Powell/Fulton thread. Find an AC board if you want to down talk their program.
  13. I pick Powell in a close one.
  14. I think this may be Halls's toughest game yet, but believe they pull out another W. Cummings seems to be taking full advantage of an easier schedule made by the last joker. If they win this one I believe they will be 5-0 going into the Powell Game.
  15. I don't live that way, but I disagree buddy. I was at the central/crocket game last year and those boys looked to me like they believed they were going to win, and they played like it. Had they gotten a couple of breaks, they very easily could have. You're closer than you think.
  16. - I agree with you completely about Rosser/Central and why I have them in the top spot. My friends in the other sport I follow told me that Cleveland went after him heavily and I know that community can put quite a bit on the table. -Fulton will be young, but they are still the team in Knoxville that absolutely nobody wants to play- and that's for good reason. They are always athletic and I expect that to still hold true. -I get the impression that you are a "powell guy" and know Coach Lowe personally. He gets hated on a lot by a lot of people, but it can't be denied that he is one of the best coaches in the area. Most people are saying they are the pre-season top team, and had central not won the gold ball last year, I would agree with them. -Agree with you completely about South Doyle. They will be as athletic as any team in Knoxville, however they have struggled to maintain their success and go deep in the playoffs the last couple of years when they have had the ability to- maybe this year could be their year? -Oak ridge is a mystery to me as well. From what I was told, last year was supposed to be their year. Take that with a grain of salt though, as I only have a couple of sources that way and rarely see them play. -Knox West- See what I just said about SD. -it was I that mentioned Halls and I was really only bringing them up to round out a top 10 (them being 10). I mentioned them because I had heard that before all the coaching changes that this senior class was one that they were excited about, they have a new coach that's proven he can win in this league, and they did almost pull off a major upset in the first round of the playoffs last year. I agree with you and don't think they are quite on the same level yet as the others, but I predict they will win at least 1 game this year that they aren't supposed to win. -Again, with the NET, I respectfully disagree, No I wouldn't bet money that a musket bowl team will make it to the semi's. However, i do believe they are closer in comparison than blazer leads on.
  17. Central did lose quite a bit, but I have the number 1 on my list for the sole reason that they are the defending state champs, and to quote my favorite wrestler, "To be the man, you got to beat the man".
  18. Blazer, I know you are normally very reliable with your information and your predictions. However, I also know you very much enjoy down playing your area. From the NET, I would argue Crockett should be in the conversation after their season last year, especially if that QB is back. I would also think that Boone and TN High aren't very far behind them. If i were to rank the east half of the state (Region 1 - Region 4) in 5A, I think it would look like this: 1. Knox Central 2. Powell 3. Fulton 4. Crockett and then close behind (but not sure in what order) you have Oak ridge, Rhea County, South Doyle, TN High, Daniel Boone and maybe even Knox Halls (supposed to have a strong senior class).
  19. This friendly debate/topic has officially been ruined by grown men who rely on insults as a debate strategy. Very mature guys....
  20. Blake Ridenhour 2009 state champ at 152 was tournament OW. I think that is your best from the past 10 years there if there are no multiple time state champs. And still believe Jake Young from the same year is your best at 171. Jake placed 3rd his freshman year (behind Brandon Wright 2Xer from Houston and Creagan 2xer from BC- would have been 3X had he not lost to Wright), won it his sophomore year, got Inj his junior year, and then won it his senior year.
  21. Since when do we compete as regions?
  22. Well since everyone else is giving their opinion, I'll throw mine out and see what sticks. . . Dual season.... *3 divisions divided equally A- 50 smallest schools AAA- 50 largest schools AA- 50 middlest schools (yes you read that right) *All 3 divisions will have 8 regions *Top 2 from each region goes to state duals *A wrestler must report from your school for 8 of the 14 weight classes for your team to be eligible for state duals (ie you must wrestle at region- no forfeits or coinflips to decide region champs). Individual Region/State... *All 3 divisions combine (and if you're feeling snazzy- add D2) and make 8 sectionals. (Region 1A, Region 1AA, and Region 1AAA make Sectional 1. Region 2A, Region 2AA, and Region 2AAA make Sectional 2. Etc) *Top 4 from each sectional goes to state. *Teams may enter as many wrestlers as they want at sectionals, but will have to predetermine their point scorers. *Teams will have a total of 14 point scorers, and may have multiple in a single weight class. (Ie if you have 2 studs in the same weight- they can both score points, your trade off is you will not have anyone scoring points in another weight class) *The wrestlers you dignified as point scorers at sectionals, will be your point scorers at state. *All 32 spots at state will be seeded by a committee. This committee will be made up of 2 coaches from each sectional.
  23. 171- Jake Young from Ooltewah should be considered and 160 Brandon Wright from Houston (He may be more than 10 years though).
  24. Can any of them hang with Wooten? I watched that kid pin the BA 220 in about a minute at Halls and then turned around and did the same thing to Blackman's 220 in the finals of the tournament.
