    Akers Out at GC?

    I'll back you up on that.

    As the Early Signing Period came, I, and I think most of you would as well, would like to know about kids going to play at the next level. Anybody have any info? And keep it classy. These kids deserve their shots at college ball, not shots at bringing them down. Congrats to Cam Allen on his signing as a Purdue Boilermaker.

    Changes for 2019

    First two, I'm fine with. Last two, not okay. You ruin any Cinderella hope. This past years Richlands squad or Blacksburg's 2016 State Championship team would not even make it in those brackets. they are probably only considering it with so many 1 and 2 win teams in the east still making the playoffs. Maybe go to 6 with top two seeds getting a bye week like in the NFL.

    Podcast Q&As

    Any rumors circulating thru the coalfields? Coaches resigning/retiring/moving onto other jobs? Players transferring? Should Purdue University give Cam Allen a look at QB? Possibly a Deion Sanders/Charles Woodson type that lines up at WR and Special teams in addition to DB duties? To build on Big Winners question about Fuente, what does Bud Foster's situation look like. And OC Brad Cornelson. They put up big numbers at TCU and then Memphis. At times, especially 3rd quarters, the play calling got more conservative than Fox News around Election Day.

    Chilhowie Field

    Yeah, they only use it for baseball games, The true king of athletics at Tazewell (insert sarcasm). 🙄 Back on topic. Chilhowie should have at least have gotten a say. I think its just poor PR the way VHSL went about it, but as cityofRaven put the VHSL does not care about anyone's feelings. It will still be a good game regardless. I see Chilhowie winning but in their closest game yet. They will have to battle, which is something they haven't had to do. Look for Chilhowie starters to play their first full game of 2018. Galax will put up a fight bc they are the most battle hardened team in the coverage area. But this is the year of the Warriors. Frankly, this is probably the beginning of the end of State Semifinals being hosted by home teams. I don't think they will touch regionals. I do believe once it gets to state semifinals, you are going to start seeing games moved to neutral sites, closest to the home team for "home field advantage". I could even see teams with turf losing hosting rights, not for fairness, but bc the VHSL said so (insert Stone Cold Steve Austin voice). It sucks frankly but its just a sign of the times. I also just realized how many memes and Late 90s/ Early 2000s WWF/WCW pro wrestling catchphrases I could have included in this post. 😅

    Podcast Q&A

    Will Mance return if Richlands falls to Graham on Saturday? I know he is sitting at 199 in the win column. Asking for a friend haha With the Narrows-PM scuffle, Who do you hold responsible for the actions committed. Its easy to say the Head Coach, and in some circumstances it is true, but Coaches don't play the game. How much is a player held responsible? Can you say something nice about Tazewell?

    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?
