  1. I've occasionally be called the horses mouth but more often the other end. Here is the guidance from TSSAA. Games cancelled due to COVID 19 shall be treated as follows: Football - TSSAA Regulations require teams to play a district/region schedule for playoff purposes. Regular season standings and the building of postseason brackets are done by TSSAA staff which creates the need for consistency on how cancellations are handled. Therefore, the following procedures are in place when a team is unable to play due to a COVID 19 outbreak or school system mandate. 1. Region Game- The game will go on record as a no contest for the school that is unable to play due to the outbreak or school system mandate. The school that could have played will receive a region win and overall win in the standings if the school can not replace the game with a new opponent on the same week it was originally scheduled to occur. If the school that could have played does replace the game with another opponent on the same week it was originally scheduled to occur, the school receives a Region win in the standings and the outcome of the game will be used in the overall standings. 2. Non Region Game- The game will go on record as a no contest for the school that is unable to play due to the outbreak or school system mandate. The school that could have played will receive a win in the overall standings if the game is not replaced. If the school that could play does replace the game with another opponent, the outcome of the game will be used in the overall standings.
  2. Wonder what kept Westview from shutting down their practice with reported cases as well. Allegedly as I understand
  3. That is the look of a man's dial up modem not connecting
  4. I was told today from a TSSAA Executive member that TSSAA will be putting out guideline on 15 July.
  5. You forgot to say in my opinion or IMO or IMHO. According to the Tennessee Covid -19 Unified Command data Maury county has had 379 confirmed cases, 5,474 cases that tested negative and 3 deaths where as Shelby County has had 12,176 confirmed cases, 145,016 cases that tested negative and 202 deaths. While certainly not at the bottom of the list it isn't the #1 most cases by a long shot.
  6. Interesting data. Of the deaths recorded of HS and college age people the virus accounts for just over 1% or in another light 99% of deaths for that age group have not been related to the Coronavirus. The percentage is even smaller for MS aged children. So the discussion point is if schools are opening on time (not all may be opening on time with in class services) and they are not requiring masks in the class rooms, is the TSSAA guideline for conducting athletic activity risk mitigation or risk avoidance?
  7. The story originally didn't clarify that the rebel soldier on the tassel was not from the school but: The journalist has updated the story to reflect the graduate who received the tassel bearing a likeness of a soldier told WATE that the high school did not provide the tassel, nor did every student receive this tassel from Jostens, the company selling graduation attire.
  8. Red, was the news story accurate see below link https://www.wate.com/news/maryville-red-rebels-petitions-circulating-to-change-keep-name/
  9. Tennessee Health Commissioner Lisa Piercey said the Unified Command Group, which oversees the state’s ongoing coronavirus response efforts, identified Wilson and Hamblen counties as new COVID-19 hot spots because of a rise in virus cases and deaths. It's not the masks its the fact that the county has been designated as a hot spot and may impact Wilson County Athletics due to a risk avoidance mentality. Shelby County took it one step further and regressed back to Phase 1 business plan model. It is best to approach this as a macro issue and not just football. The players interact throughout the community. We saw 2 programs in Middle Tennessee last week report players and one coach testing positive. (I know what is the big deal it is the dead period) Yes they practice outdoor and play outdoor but they don't go to Wal-Mart outdoor or walk around in a bubble isolated from the population. As a fan I am encouraged by everyone's optimism, as a coach I am pessimistic that things will be back to normal when school starts.
  10. Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto has declared a State of Emergency for the county effective and is requiring all residents to wear a mask in public the death total from COVID-19 in the county increased from eight to 15 in the past two weeks. The first one of you chowder heads that say its ok its the dead period needs to self select and go play in traffic. https://www.wilsonpost.com/news/hutto-declares-state-of-emergency-for-wilson-county-masks-required/article_660c6838-b63b-11ea-a4fa-e3fa4e0b2bbd.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share
  11. Columbia Central High has suspended summer football workouts through July 5 after a player tested positive for COVID-19 and I learned today that Dresden suspended summer football workouts football because of COVID-19. I am losing faith that football will occur this fall. I have my fingers crossed that these are anomalies and not reliable indicators.
  12. A few of my favorite verses talking about soldiers and war from the Bible Matthew 24: And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. Psalm 144: Of David. Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; he is my steadfast love and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield and he in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. Ecclesiastes 3:8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace. Deuteronomy 20: “When you go out to war against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and an army larger than your own, you shall not be afraid of them, for the Lord your God is with you, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. And when you draw near to the battle, the priest shall come forward and speak to the people and shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel, today you are drawing near for battle against your enemies: let not your heart faint. Do not fear or panic or be in dread of them, for the Lord your God is he who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies, to give you the victory.’ 1 Timothy 1:18 This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare,
  13. I tried to PM you but the board site is saying I don't have that capability right now. The last date of info from Whitwell that I have is from the morning of Thursday, May 7, 2020.
  14. I spoke with school leadership about 3 weeks ago and was told they are still looking. Not waiting, not in negotiations but still looking.
