Well, to be honest, Peabody and McK are the 2 largest 1a schools and Peabody missed the 2a cutoff by about 2 students and McK by about 10 or 20 so both of them dropping down with their recent success would have been a complete disappointment not to have been in the West semi-final bracket.  The same thing could have been said about UC for a a string of years.  It shouldn't even be close against teams like Greenback, South Pittsburg, Coalfield etc when you have a 200 student margin.  That's why I think there really may as well only be 4 classifications instead of 6, especially with the privates mostly in Div II.  SP and Trousdale County had to wade through the alphabet schools in the 90s and through 2012 to get to the semis and the final and more often than not they both did it.

Mckenzie nor Peabody has any choice in there classification ? that being said, they both played the hand they were both delt, and McKenzie has ran the table thus far!!! we all know that south Pitt is not gonna be easy, contrary to some of the smoke and mirrors, BS, whatever ya want to call it, that's being spread on here.. just know, THE MCKENZIE REBELS, will be ready for a fight till the finish!!!!! have no doubt about that.. I hope the best of luck to both teams, and  no injuries!!!! the refs have been great last two weeks and I hope that continues for one more!!! won't be an easy task, but I like the REBELS in this one!!!!!

1st, my response was to a Lake County poster.  Secondly, you ignored the point I made about classifications.  Lastly, Pirates don't roll over either.  They lost last year throwing into the end zone on the last play of the game and lost to UC the 1st time by a field goal with about 3 seconds on the clock.  This stuff about the Pirates getting blown out is the real B.S. because it hasn't happened since 1974 when Brentwood Academy did it.  The last time SP played McK you all were moving up and this time y'all moved down.  This Pirate bunch may get clobbered Friday, but they aren't afraid of playing anyone in Tennessee.

How many starters did So. Pittsburg lose off of last years runner up team? 

Almost all of them. I’d say close to 9 each way. The fact they have made it this far with all the junk they have endured is nothing short of a miracle IMO. Go Pirates but everyone knows the strength was in the west this season

I got to take Mckenzie in this one they beat the two defending state champs to get here and both of those games were dog fights. They are def battle tested.  I think South Pitt has been phenomenal dealing with what they have been through this season having their coach quit on them. I think they have the speed to keep up with Mckenzie but they wont be physically capable of hanging around. If you want the recipe to stopping Mckenzie or Slowing them down then turn the Fayetteville tape on but South Pitt doesnt have those type of kids. Mckenzie really well coach they wont beat themselves. Mckenzie by 3 1/2 scores give me #11 for MVP.

    • I would put Elizabethton 2 and I would have Gibson County in the top 5 somewhere and Loretto in the top 7. Gibson County’s varsity went 6-1 at MTSU and has had a very strong summer camp. Got some improving to do but they are ahead of schedule now. They had the best MTSU camp I have seen since I have been going. Greenville I have heard good things about and could be a top 5 and Huntingdon has played well this summer. Lots of really good teams in Tennessee this year. Also what Page?? And Huntland will give fits to teams in Single A this year.

    • Two teams from the same region have played each other in the state final in Georgia several times. 
    • That’s what we do in Georgia. 
    • If those offense stud athletes are that good make them play both ways
