@  1inStripes : (26 September 2016 - 11:47 AM) I dont believe I have ever seen a negative word about Arnold Palmer. I wish I had tea and lemonade at the house last night when I heard.
@  sixcat : (26 September 2016 - 11:39 AM) I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Palmer on two separate occasions. He was gracious and made my wife and I feel as if we were the center of the universe at that particular moment. Rest in peace Mr. Palmer.
@  Bigrhsfan : (26 September 2016 - 02:27 AM) A.Palmer was a classy classy man, god bless him and his family !
@  Dick_Vitale : (26 September 2016 - 02:18 AM) I'm sure Rebel_yell will be making another thread here soon.
@  vaprepsrod : (26 September 2016 - 01:57 AM) solid amount of LOL in that Hurley thread
@  bhs7695 : (26 September 2016 - 01:17 AM) RIP Arnold Palmer
@  BigO : (26 September 2016 - 12:29 AM) Don't know about Hurley thread but I had someone like a post I made from 2014. Someone named Donaldkt. Didn't recognize name so I clicked on it and it said no longer a member...yet at 4:40 today they liked my post from 2014. It was a post about snow. Nothing significant. Weird.
@  GMan : (25 September 2016 - 11:02 PM) OK, who deleted the Hurley thread??? I was asked if I did, but it was not me this time.
@  bhs7695 : (25 September 2016 - 08:44 PM) Yes they did when Cousins made a stupid decision to run instead of throwing the ball away.
@  futbolking : (25 September 2016 - 07:04 PM) Did the Redskins really blow a first and goal in the 2nd quarter and let the time expire before half with one timeout in their pocket?
@  HurricaneWar... : (25 September 2016 - 05:48 PM) That's why I didn't take Florida in the pick em, knowing they suck.
@  trumpet1988 : (25 September 2016 - 05:42 PM) And prayers for Fernandez' family.
@  trumpet1988 : (25 September 2016 - 05:42 PM) I'd rather have a weak start and come out strong second half and win. Those slow starts are going to kill Tennessee some games. Or will they? It shows Tennessee is a second half team. Last season Tennessee had explosive starts and let them get away.
@  1inStripes : (25 September 2016 - 02:37 PM) Absolutely awful about Fernandez.
@  Ryan4VT : (25 September 2016 - 01:58 PM) UT has struggled in all four games this year. That's not a trend you want to keep up. It will come back to bite them if they sure that up quickly.
@  honestjohn : (25 September 2016 - 01:47 PM) Jose Fernandez dies in Boating Accident,
@  BigO : (25 September 2016 - 12:26 PM) Lol. Okay.
@  GMan : (25 September 2016 - 11:44 AM) Florida sucks. The only reason they are even rated is because of the SEC bias that runs rampant through the media.
@  BigO : (25 September 2016 - 04:06 AM) Oh, and Fla didn't have 5 fumbles...#wwtfa!!!

Interesting matchup in my neck of the woods. Actually, I am planning to be there for this one. The locals early schedule has been much weaker than the Richlands slate. This is a huge determining factor for me. Obviously, the Blue Tornado squad is not as powerful as past teams; however, they are good and solid and certainly will give the Cavaliers their toughest game thus far. Trust me, the folks in Daleville are already fired up for this one. This is the classic Southwest Virginia perennial power versus an upstart working its way to notoriety in the Roanoke Valley. My edge goes to the tradition that is Richlands football. Go Blues!

Richlands 24
Lord Botetourt 20
Go G-Men!

The Quarterback and Running Back for Lord Botetourt are both very good.  The RB put up some very good numbers last year.  I've heard from a friend out that way that they don't throw the ball hardly at all.  Hopefully Richlands comes to play and can get the ball rolling again.  If we can clean up the passing game and step up our pass defense we have chance of being good.  Look forward to making the trip out to Daleville this Friday.

LB has had some good wins this year against some very respectable teams.  Richlands has had trouble over the past few years against teams from the Roanoke area.  LB by a touchdown.

No disrespect to Richlands, but I have a feeling LB is going to win this pretty handily.  My prediction by at least 17.  31-14.  LB is pretty tough and their RB is a beast.  I would love to see Richlands win this one to keep some notoriety going for extreme SWVA, but I just don't think it will happen.

We are definitely the underdog here. More bad news for us. Colten will not be playing Friday night. Out with a shoulder sprain. LB wins this pretty easy in my opinion. I hope we can make a good showing. If we can't throw the ball we lose big. If we can trow maybe we can keep it respectable!

Exit 150B, take a right off the exit.  Right at the first light onto 220.  Go about a mile and a half.  School is on the left

Oddly enough, I think I know more about Botetourt's team than that of my own alma mater with regard to this matchup.

 

My take is that the Blues will have to play their very best to have a shot at this one.  This looks like the best team that Botetourt has fielded in recent memory and they've got really great momentum coming into this game.  Their offense is clicking and they've played some fairly decent competition to date.  Richlands will need to control the line of scrimmage and keep the Cavs' offense on the sidelines as much as possible.  Doing that will improve their chances.

 

On paper this looks like an uphill climb.  But anything can happen.

Richlands will have their hands full this week and for the next two weeks with Virginia High, who is much improved, and with Bluefield.  When was the last time Richlands lost 2 or even 3 regular season games?

I love my blues,  but with Colton out and River still getting his legs under him as a starting varsity QB,  and with some issues at receiver, and the O line still coming together,  I think this might be a long night for the blues.  They are playing a lot of young players,  but they do they have the potential to be a very good team,  but I am afraid they have just too much going against them this week,  with them playing a good team that has a lot of good talent along with good coaching and at their place. 

  I hope I am way off on this though and the blues give them a good hard fought game !


There's a F5 BlueTornado warning for Southwest Virginia this fall !
