  1. The stall ball strategy is exactly why a shot clock is needed in high school basketball. It was kind of ridiculous.
  2. I like Billy's as well. There is also The Other One right there in Grove Center very close to the high school. Awesome burgers!
  3. In case you're not familiar, the gym is actually around back of the school on a different street than GPS will take you. I tell people to put in Providence Road on their GPS and it will take them to the gym. I work next door and can't tell you how often we redirect lost souls. Enjoy! (and stop in at Big Ed's pizza while in Oak Ridge...it's awesome!)
  4. A fave quote of all BHS fans is "It's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog!" I think last night the Dogs just wanted it more. Good for them!
  5. It is my understanding that a #10 FHS & a BHS player got physical after the play. Flag for FHS player. FHS player smarted off to Ref after 1st flag resulting in 2nd flag. He's a smartmouth kid who has gotten personal fouls in other games. Shame. He potentially lost his team the game.
  6. Best rivalry in Knoxville this week...Bearden v Farragut. Farragut is coming to Bearden 8-0 but with a couple of key injuries. Bearden is 6-1 coming off their bye week. Don't know about their injury status. Bearden hasn't beaten Farragut since 2012. (Best high school game I've ever seen, BHS came from behind and won in 3OT). What's the thought on this game? Who's your money on?
  7. Can't wait to see Bearden play Oak Ridge in Regional play. If I recall correctly, Oak Ridge has historically bested the Bulldogs. Thoughts on that matchup this season?
  8. A couple of their key players are under the weather but played anyway. Def not their best night but even battling flu & strep, they powered through and found a way to win.
  9. Hardin Valley is ranked 4th in state in AAA. They've been super strong all season...very consistent play. Farragut is having an off season and are currently ranked #47 in state. Heritage is ranked #21 and Oak Ridge is ranked #12. I know nothing about Heritage this year, havent seen them play. I think it'll be Hardin Valley and Oak Ridge in Regional finals match. I think Oak Ridge will play Hardin Valley hard but Hardin Valley will in all likelihood come out on top. Hardin Valley beat Oak Ridge 25-11, 25-13, 25-17 in regular season play.
  10. I posted this in another thread as well but here you go! AAA Region 2 tournament is tomorrow night at 5pm at Oak Ridge High School. Hardin Valley (#1 District 3) vs. Bearden (#2 District 4) and Oak Ridge (#1 District 4) vs. Heritage (#2 District 3) District 3 Rankings: (according to CoachT) Hardin Valley Heritage Lenoir City Farragut Maryville South Doyle William Blount District 4 Rankings: (according to CoachT) Oak Ridge Bearden West Campbell County Halls Karns Powell
  11. AAA Region 2 tournament is tomorrow night at 5pm at Oak Ridge High School. Hardin Valley (#1 District 3) vs. Bearden (#2 District 4) and Oak Ridge (#1 District 4) vs. Heritage (#2 District 3).
  12. Ruth has posted in the past as though she had absolute knowledge of a situation regarding K2 and coaching high school teams and it turned out she had no idea what she was talking about. I take everything she posts with a grain. Please stop posting rumors and innuendo and stick to topics of which you have actual fact. I have no affiliation with this high school nor with this club, I just get tired of reading all of her conspiracy theory threads.
  13. Am I hearing correctly that Maryville has had to vacate some district wins for player ineligibility? I heard that one of the two players who transferred from Bearden was deemed ineligible to play.
  14. He was discharged from hospital last night. From what I was told, he was knocked out for a bit on field. Someone who would know told me that he has a history of concussions and suffered another last night. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to that young man.
  15. Her arrogance is unreal. While I would hate it for the girls, I hope something happens to Maryville just to put Ruth in her place. I'm all for good competition but good grief...we're talking about high school volleyball.
  16. Wow. I get that you've drunk the K2 kool-aid but that is an unbelievable statement to make. What percentage of the players on the Farragut, Hardin Valley & Bearden teams actually play for K2? Why do you think K2 is untouchable? Do you think the TSSAA gives a flip about K2? I'm not sure how you think a bunch of parents can fight a state-wide regulation just because they don't want to follow the rules? I will look forward to following this story & seeing what happens.
  17. That's ridiculous. How is that in the best interest of the girls on the team other than winning? Most of these girls are already committed/signed to play in college so that's not the motivation. So what is the real motivation other than Hames wanting to use the high school team as his off club season practice team? I hope the Farragut, Hardin Valley & Bearden parents raise absolute h*ll.
  18. Are you sure no one at any of the schools in the District/Region are going to mind that Hames has gone against TSSAA regs to build a super team? That's awfully naive thinking on your part. If you were a coach at Bearden, Farragut, Hardin Valley, etc....you're telling me you'd be ok with stacking the deck like that?
  19. Olddawg...I'm not going to get into a pi**ing contest with you. I am well aware that TN is a right to work state, meaning anyone can be fired for any reason at any time. But I know what I know. Blevins left his team (with other adults) while on a trip to Birmingham Southern summer camp two years ago to go interview at another school. Told the boys he was interviewing. Practices that exceed reasonable time? Surely you know about Dawg Days the first week of practice. Practicing the boys from 4pm-10pm for a solid week and making them run till they puke then run some more in a gym that isn't air conditioned does seem a bit excessive to me. But then again, I'm just a mom, what do I know? What I DO know is he has had more than one player in the past couple of years come to him complaining of an injury and he has told them to (NOTE I'm using quotes here) "you need to learn to play through the pain...suck it up and stop being a pu**y." Two of boys went on to further their injuries resulting in the need for weeks of physical therapy and ultimately ending their options to play. Did he tell them that they would no longer be on the team? Nope, he let them believe they still had a spot on his team (understanding that they would have to earn playing time). On two different occasions, the boys walked into the locker room on team picture day to be told they were no longer on the team in front of all of the other boys. Why do that? How about when he cut his team captain a few yrs ago for breaking a finger during a game? He wouldn't let the captain sit on the bench with the rest of the team and made him go up top and film. Why exactly was that necessary? Why was it necessary he bench his seniors during their last home game a few years ago because they were playing Powell and he didn't want to 'give away' any of their tactics in case they played them in regional tournament? He was playing so many freshman this season because almost ALL of his sophomores and juniors quit. He had no depth of bench. Luckily for him, he had the most talented freshman class in years. Ask any former player what a "noser" is. Ask any former player about running stairs. I myself sat outside in the parking lot on multiple occasions for over an hour after practice was supposed to end because he kept them to run. Want to know what the booster president said at the first parents meeting? "You're just going to have love your boys through it...it's the only way they'll survive." Yes, I really do have enough knowledge to comment.
  20. Olddawg...your conspiracy theory is getting a little ridiculous. I've just chuckled at your thread thus far but seriously? I currently have two children at BHS...both involved in athletics...one played bball for Blevins in recent years. Blevins cut him (which I understood, he didn't develop the way Blevins hoped he would) but the way he did it was cruel and unnecessary. Every allegation alleged against Blevins is true with the exception of putting his foot in that kid's stomach. It's been going on for years. Not sure why it was this year that administration decided to handle it. But the rest of the crap you are posting is just that...crap.
