  1. Games with teams from memphis usually go one of two ways my man: the other team gets up by 14+ and the whole cookie crumbles due to in fighting and lack of discipline, or its a hard fought game to the wire. I see this one as more of the second option due to saulsberry being a good coach. You trying to find beef where there is none lol
  2. First post on the T in a good bit. After watching the BA game on Friday vs mccallie, I have to say Ba is severely out manned up front on dline. They do not have the front to run a 3-4 Like in years past so if a team likes to ground and pound then they can have success like mccallie did. The BA d coordinator seems to be stuck in his ways because even on those great teams from 2015-2017 BA was having to score 35-40+ a game at times to win. Now, even though BA still has athletes on offense, it’s not nearly the same as in the past especially at the WR position group, so it’s gonna have to make the D play better defense whereas in years past they could just get 2-3 stops and win the game on just offense. That being said BA still has the advantage on DaHaven imo Bc of how disciplined they are and their execution on O. If whitehaven can come out and stay in the game up to half and into the 3rd it could get interesting to see how it plays out. Should be a good game and good atmosphere!
  3. not true lol if you are telling me rn that alcoa is in the same area as allen, img, etc you are delusional and have watched no football outside of TN. oakland is wayyyy better than alcoa and not above them on that poll lol. m axpreps is a much better site for ranking teams ik it hurts your pride bc alcoa is in the 300's but its true if a team struggles with upperman high school and let me say that again: UPPERMAN HIGH SCHOOL, they are no where near top 25 in nation hahaha
  4. not surprising lol... some ignorant bs lol... you only say MJ bc they played one close game against oakland l... if MJ played oakland that close what would someone with a even better offense and defense do lmao cmon man
  5. they have not played a team from d2 since 2006. Rankin only plays Maryville every yr bc he has too. He left riverdale bc he realized a lot of his players were going to be pulled from the other newer schools in ruth co and saw the writing on the wall and dipped out. case in point is riverdale has only had one or 2 solid teams since he left and fallen off very bad within last 7-8yrs. alcoa does not play up or play out of state teams. all these just show that Rankin is scared of playing against good quality opponents week in and week out instead of beating up on small county schools and ducks competition but you alcoa fans are so brainwashed bc you think a 3a title in TN is the pinnacle of football achievement in a league that everyone knows alcoa is gonna win every yr in a open zone county. Im done arguing with you bc you are brainwashed believing alcoa is just g*d's chosen team
  6. no they did not lol the top private is the one who wins state at end of yr. a team which alcoa didnt beat that season. stop trying to hijack this thread just bc you have a bias against private schools and any team that is not alcoa. this thread is about discussing the BA whitehaven game not some alcoa bs. rankins moaning is the whole reason there is a public private split to begin with so do not come on here starting stuff "sissy boy"
  7. why didnt you show who beat mccallie in state that yr???... exactly you selectively left that part out lol
  8. not denying this at all. however if you had the combined teams of gville and sc as discussed previously, then you would have a very good amount of speed on that team and could play with people
  9. pipe down my man pipe down. i get you are nervous that maryville's stranglehold and power in TN is slowly slipping away but calm down
  10. lol not against cpa lmao and you are stupid for what you think lol buck up and play some big boys rankin is shakin in his boots
  11. ik BA used to have one in their weight room not sure if they still do. interesting tho ill have to research what happened with them
  12. not denying anything you said bc its true. those deep runs by carthage and championships by gville are always several yrs apart instead of being consistent. however since maynard has left carthage,it seems that the program has drastically fallen off what it used to be. gordonsville it hasnt been as bad but to an extent it has. combining the schools makes the most economical sense as well as for sports and school purposes.
  13. this is comical man. MJ would 100% not beat BA or MUS or mccallie and probably MBA (who you chose not to rank). just bc they played oakland close doesnt mean they would be 2 in state lol. heck greeneville would probably beat them
  14. just like alcoa would if they would ever play the big boys? this not an alcoa board take that elsewhere
  15. Exactly lol people think Ba is scared to go and play people. They have been to olive branch which is basically Memphis a few times not counting other out of state teams
  16. Until smith county and Gordonsville combine schools then the county schools will never be dominant in sports. All that it does is split the resources and talent across 2 schools for no reason other than some baby boomers and their precious rivalry. Newsflash: the younger people there want to combine bc it makes the most sense for the county. Imagine how good the combined Carthage and Gordonsville football teams from like 2000-2012would have been. More than likely would have multiple state championships. Ive heard also that SC doesn’t have a athletics director so that’s never a good thing. That job could be desirable but under the current circumstances then no one would really wanna mess with it. I remember when Maynard was there that stadium was constantly packed out in black and now it’s barely anyone at games and only 30 or so players. It’s sad
  17. Ranked #24????? On what poll? If it’s not the unapproved website website Poll then it’s essentially not worth anything. Everyone knows that Is the real poll that’s the hardest to get ranked on. Alcoa is like 400 something on that one lol. However the 2009 alcoa team is possibly the best one I have ever seen. That team that yr was #2 in the state behind the nationally ranked Barry Brunetti led MUS owls who were like 26-0 his last 2 yrs. 09 Alcoa was insanely good along with cobbs senior yr
  18. No it doesn’t bc it was in 1937. WW2 hadn’t even happened yet. A team from 1937 is not great by today’s standards get real
  19. dude get real some random team from 1937 could not even compete at all with teams today. mediocre teams today would smoke teams like those. lmao the forward pass was still somewhat new then and you think they could play with teams now cmon man cmon
  20. every alcoa fan always uses the ifl as an excuse to duck from argue facts bc they know inside their team does not want smoke with the big buys week in and week out.
  21. I heard you have a statue of Gary rankin you have to face 5 times a day and pray to lol
  22. I’m open to discuss on why this yrs Oakland team wouldn’t have beat the teams I listed. Cmon man haha. #whatgypsysaysgoes
