    Marion at Tazewell

    I have been both disappointed and surprised. I only saw the Richlands game, but it seems as another poster said, they have taken a step back.

    Marion at Tazewell

    What is the story with Tazewell? I honestly expected a giant step forward this year, even with the young team. Maybe my expectations were unrealistic, but I would have predicted 5-5 or 6-4, with a playoff berth. I wish them well, as with other Tazewell County and area teams. On a side note, both Richlands and Graham, have performed about as I had expected.

    Tazewell @ Richlands

    I was very surprised by the outcome tonight. I thought Richlands would win, but in a much closer fashion. Based on what I saw, I thought the score could have been much worse. During the first half especially, Richlands stopped themselves more than Tazewell. I have no doubts that there will be brighter days for the Dawgs, and I wish them the best. However, based on what I saw, I certainly don't believe victory in the next two years is a foregone conclusion. I was impressed with Tazewell's skill position players, but I am not sure about their line, depth, and development. Richlands had some underclassmen contribute tonight, with many returning to the offensive line next year. Tazewell may have their best chance soon, but I wouldn't be so bold. Congratulations on a hard fought game by both teams.

    Beattie Feathers was NFL'S first 1000 yard rusher and Virginia High alum. I read about him years ago.

    Week 2 grudge: Union @ Richlands

    Congratulations Bears! Good luck the rest of the season. I am very impressed by the patient playcalling, and how solid the program has consistently become. We have been very blessed in Richlands, but you seem to have our number. Tip of the cap to you.

    Cross-bracket or not?

    I agree, but was basing a hypothetical situation using results comparison of a close game vs a blowout.

    Cross-bracket or not?

    Just for discussion after competitive games today, IF Union is in fact the second best 2A team in the state do you prefer the current and original format where the top 2 teams meet in the semifinals or the previous format that meant more travel, but the possibility of meeting in the finals?

    Week 11 podcast questions?

    1998 9-3 Greg Mance. I can't remember 1997, but believe it was 3-7.
