  1. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    Graham the last two years called teams out before the game and talked trash after big plays during the game - which I personally didn't mind to see, because as a player you can get under the opponents skin and get their focus off & plus it hypes you up to play that much more. & for fans it makes for a better atmosphere for the game when both crowds are getting into it because the opposing fans act like their boys are doing bible study in the locker room at halftime. That being said, the last two years the G-Men DID have discipline problems. Graham had some great players graduate the last two years but in my opinion they weren't the best leaders. I'm all for trying to intimidate the other team before the game and talking trash during the game but when you're (allegedly) taunting the fans/band/cheerleaders that's showing your focus isn't fully on the game and you're taking it too far. I never seen anything happen like that but I did have a problem with the 2 or 3 personal fouls it seemed that Graham would get every game because a few players would play like they were trying to get on SportsCenter's Top 10 plays and either come up with a taunting foul or late hit, etc. I've seen almost all of Graham's games this year and I can assure you the problems aren't there anymore. This season (before last week) I can only remember one personal foul and that's when Cam Allen made a big hit and dislodged the ball from a Marion receiver and stood over top of him a little too long. Last week I said there were a few dumb 15 yard penalties but when I watched the tape on it you could see why they were upset - a Grayson player unnecessarily earholed Mike Mason on a INT return at the 15 yard line when the the return only made it out of the end zone to the 1 yard line. It's still dumb to get the penalties but I could understand why you're upset and playing chippy after seeing your team mate motionless on the field and taken off on a gurney. Cooke, Workman, & Vineyard (among others) are the type of leaders you want on your team. They celebrate big plays but not at the expense of their team. Them being the leaders they have been is one of the main reasons that Graham is where they're at now. In my opinion last year's team was more talented top to bottom but this year'a team plays like a TEAM for 48 minutes. also - I doubt Tony said anything like that and if he did it would've been in a joking context. I'd bet my house that he doesn't have a hotel booked in Appomattox.. but it's smart to start that rumor. I understand why whoever did, did.

    Will only be embarrassing if they lose Saturday, if they win he looks like Bear Bryant lol
  3. Head Coach?

    10 in football. they have more state championships in all sports combined than any other school in WV, unless someone has passed them in the last couple of years
  4. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    I'm not sure what they think about grass but graham has only played 2 games all year on grass at Lebanon and Fort Chiswell. The other 10 were on turf. * but the $60,000 Tazewell County paid for Graham to play at Mitchell Stadium doesn't include practice time so Graham does practice everyday on grass next To the high school.

  6. 2017 SWVA Coach of the Year

    In my opinion I think a coach of the year award should be awarded to a coach with a great record who led their team to "overachieve." We all expect Bluefield, Union, Galax, & Graham to win 8, 9, or 10 games. What most didn't expect this year was Marion start out 8-0, Ridgeview host a playoff game at 9-1, or Narrows to have home field advantage throughout the state title game. Carroll from Marion, Mullins from Ridgeview and Lowe from Narrows would be my top 3. But I'd give my vote to Kelly Lowe at Narrows. They lost a player that went to play at VT and still went 9-1 and locked up home field throughout.
  7. 2017 SWVA Coach of the Year

    McDowell too. But speaking of coaching, Mount View has a good young coach (around 28-29 years old) in my opinion. His name is Larry Thompson. He's originally from Louisiana but after Katrina moved around and ended up playing in college at Concord, then somehow ended up in Welch. Not saying he deserves a coach of the year award but he's got Mount View competitive in most games which was unheard of in the years before he took over.

    I'd at least invite you to Applebee's to finish watching the game. Not to eat though, because trust me, you don't want to eat at the applebees in Bluefield.

    I ran out of likes, but thank you! another question if anyone knows.. does sprint have LTE in BSG?
  12. Round Two Score Updates

    Is more than 4 hours for both teams. Probably around 4 hours 10 mins for Mingo and 4.5 hours for Bluefield. I don't have a lot of knowledge of why they keep it in wheeling, but It always made sense to me to play the state championship games in Charleston. They have a real nice stadium there but I know WV enjoys everyone traveling north to the panhandle. Back in 2007 I think it was Bluefield played James Monroe for the state championship. They could've played the game in Princeton and had a half hour drive for everybody but they both had to drive all the way to wheeling lol
  13. Round Two Score Updates

    Between the tolls and casinos I don't know if I would make it back from wheeling
  14. Region 2D Championship: Graham @ Union

    I didn't make that trip so I didn't know had happened. Saturday will be my first trip to BSG. Somebody give me info on seating, parking, places to eat? I plan on leaving early that day.. anything in the area to do or see? I like history, so anything like that?
