TSSAA conspiracy against W.Tn Basketball

Recommended Posts

Guest snakedriver

OK....so we have the single a championship game at 10 am wed. morning. The TSSAA has always favored it's members in middle and east tn. in all sports.....but I think this is ridiculous. Don't even try to tell me about a "blind draw"..........OK.....if thats the way Mr. Carter wants it.....so be it. I hope whoever wins between HB and Manassas makes these other schools look like the red-headed stepchildren they are this season! Have it your way TSSAA!

Comments please?????

Winner of this game will then play Grace Baptist and Temple...I said in a post earlier this week that those are the 3 teams I'd like to see as a Humboldt fan...Manassas, Grace Baptist, and Temple are the teams that have knocked Humboldt out of the postseason the last 3 years...Now, Humboldt will have to go through all 3 in order to win the state championship...

 

I do think it is a bunch of a crap, but nothing can be done...

Sounds like a mad Humboldt fan to me, if you win STATE you got to win 3 games anyway so quit griping and WIN your games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can honestly say the conspiracy didn't exsist in AA. Both East Schools are playing the Memphis teams.

 

Carter vs. BTW

Fulton vs. Sheffield.

 

But you gotta play somebody!

I totally agree. Humbolt hasn't lost a game all year and their playing a team that's 25-2 in the FIRST ROUND??? C'mon. I'm from west tn and honestly can say that i HATE humbolt lol. but this is the biggest load of crap next to the BCS system that i've heard of in quite some time.

 

I guess it's too common sense for a number one seed in the state to play the lowest seed in the ship...that'd be just too plain and simple

Only reason I'm upset is because I wasn't going to be able to make it until Thursday meaning I'll miss the Humboldt vs Manassas game unless I pull something off...

 

I would have rather played Manassas in the championship but I do like the fact that we will be playing the last three teams to put us out of the tournament (Manassas in 08', substate...Temple in 07', state semi-final...Grace Baptist in 06', state semi-final)...Humboldt will have all the motivation they will ever need... /popcorneater.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":popcorneater:" border="0" alt="popcorneater.gif" />

If you think this is a load a crap, wait til you see them try to seed this tournament. There is no fair way to seed this tournament. You can't go by records because then schools would play cupcakes. You can't go by the AP rankings because then you are leaving it up to the media who have no clue about teams in other areas and you also bring in the possiblity of them ranking thier team higher than they should be so they can get a good seed.

 

Is the blind draw system we have perfect? By all means no. But is it the best system that we have come up with? Yes.

I have never heard of the top 2 teams in the state having to meet in the first game. Wow! It is what it is though. Hopefully the Vikings will come out on top, but I just don't believe the whole blind draw thing...

So all you Middle and East Tn basketball fans think it's right for the top 2 ranked teams in the state in 1A to play the very first game of the tournament??...

 

If Humboldt or Manassas, either one, get to the championship they cannot say they backed into a state championship game appearance....

 

Same cannot be said for the bottom part of the bracket... /thumb[1].gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":thumb:" border="0" alt="thumb[1].gif" />
