    Richlands at Ridgeview

    If the refs make the correct call, Richlands doesn't get ball back and game is iced. But that's ancient history

    So you're saying Richlands wins if Horn plays entire game?

    I'm not sure Horn would have been enough for Richlands to win. If the refs hadn't bungled that call on the punt, it could have been 49-28.

    Best 2 players are on the same team?

    I agree whole heartedly that we should strive to be a society where we all see each other simply as humans and nothing more. But to get to that state, we need to get rid of words that specifically refer to a person's race in a pejorative manner. I don't think the old name is itself racist, but in a certain light or connotation I could see it being a term that a black person would not like. It goes back to the point that the aggrieved party is really the only ones who can tell us, people on the outside, if the term hits them in a bad way. And no race is a monolith, so maybe some don't feel the term is one that should be removed but if there's a subset of that race that feels it to be defamatory, we can't really argue. I think we should work more on educating those who use certain words and phrases that are inflammatory instead of shaming and belittling them, you catch more flies with honey. I also agree that people can be super sensitive now and like to be outraged for the sake of being outraged, but if you can tune those people out and get to the root issue, we can make progress. *I used the general 'I, we, us, etc..., I am not referring to you specifically bc you seem like a good dude who would never go out of his way to slur another race.

    Fixing the scoreboard should be done ASAP. That's shameful honestly. GC has won too many games to be a school who's damn scoreboard doesn't even work right.

    Richlands at Ridgeview

    Ridgeview does a great job of getting both backs, Adkins and Sexton, involved in the passing game. It's not just screens and swings either, both backs (at least against Union) were running routes like slants and out routes, angle routes to the middle and even more complex route trees. maybe they won't use those against Richlands, but they've shown they can. Sexton killed Union on third down out of the backfield or lined up in the slot.

    I would wager you are white, am I correct? I am as well. And with that being true, it's not for us to decide what another ethnicity believes to be derogatory or racist. As a society, we should be trying to come together and remove all the bias and the hate. If that means some words go the way of the dodo, that's the price of progress. You seem like a decent dude, and I'm sure there's not any sort of intent if you called Norton the older name, but can you see where someone who isn't white being sensitive to a name like the Black Raiders?

    Because with Burton usually having a sizable minority enrollment, using the term Black Raiders could be taken as being racially motivated. There's no way I would use the term.

    Graham vs Union

    Union has one of the better kickers around, Falin can hit from 40 yards (was just short on a 40+ yarder against Battle) and Jenkins can be electric as a returner but the coverage unit is not great. Battle consistently returned kicks to the 40-yard line, and coverage has been an issue all year. Speed keeps most teams from returning for scores but field position is so important and Union can get behind in that area is an issue.

    Graham vs Union

    If Graham had picked up a decent (5-5 or so) 2A school instead of Princeton, I can't imagine 8-2 Union outpoints them for the two seed.

    How could the VHSL justify moving the game when they allowed some of the games last week? Unless the park somehow becomes horrendous, on what grounds could they move the game?

    Graham vs Union

    I don't see any way the game is moved unless something crazy happens. The park drains well and unless it's absolutely a disaster, there's no way Union agrees to move the game.
