    Rain already playing a factor in Region C

    No one ever knocks the College Football Playoff (or BCS when it was in existence) or the NFL playing the Super Bowl in warm weather or domed stadiums, yet all the knocking of these high schools. Regular season is okay for the dirt, mud, and rain and occasional snow. Playoff games shouldn't need to be decided by weather, only by play. The cold will play a factor anyway. I'm assuming that any school that doesn't have natural grass is tough enough either. So Richlands, Honaker, Salem, Radford, Graham and Bluefield, Princeton, any area college team and many more high school teams are surely not tough enough. Dig up the fields and plant some grass. I wish Tazewell could get the turf since the field is used so much.

    More Heartbreak for Richlands Community

    This is absolutely ridiculous to say. Please stop. And for everyone on this forum, please know that this guy speaks for himself and not for Tazewell as a whole. From here on out, your post should be taken with a grain of salt. You cant back track from that. It was wrong and you know it. I only got to see Devon play once and you could see he was going to do something special. We have had tons of good players and a lot of great players. He was one of the great ones. And I'm glad he was able to switch positions at Marshall. Had his injury history been better, we would be watching him suit up for the Panthers.

    Thursday Super Pod Questions?

    Hope this is not too late. Are you going to do the podcast the same way during the playoffs? Maybe have a coaches corner or roundtable to talk about the playoffs?

    Akers Out at GC?

    Billy Wagner was a good starting quarterback for Tazewell. That's always my go-to when I hear a Tazewell kid say they wanna concentrate on baseball. But from speaking to college coaches before, one of the first five questions they ask is what other sports does this kid play? The list is endless as far as athletes having success in multiple. Also many of you probably have not seen it but I have, Cam Allen at Graham is known for his football and basketball, but I will tell you that baseball may have been his best sport.

    Score Updates: Week 9 (10/19/18)

    Can they somehow petition the Higher ups to play down in AA so this travel doesn't happen?

    Week 9 Pod Questions?

    Just the first one: Multiple platforms of social media. Word of mouth was the main way before and still works, but now there is video and such to back it up. Also, there are multiple camps multiple times a year for one to attend. Its not that D1(or any level) talent was never here. Just more exposure in today's climate. Fantastic questions tho

    Week 9 Pod Questions?

    What would be your ultimate tailgating spread? Also why don't you see more tailgating at high school games.

    The man helped bring the site to us, therefore I forgive him. That and I would rather have Dairy Queen.

    Richlands vs Graham

    Playoff format now, even with its flaws, are light years ahead of where they used to be.

    Why are 2004 and 2013 considered luck up years?

    Graham @ Virginia High

    Possible trap game for Graham looking ahead to Richlands. Not a repeat of last year.
