@  UVAObserver : (12 February 2016 - 09:19 PM) There's strong medical literature to suggest that as much as 95% of ADHD diagnoses are incorrect. People talk about health care reform, but overprescribing and incorrectly prescribing medication is #1 by a light year over whatever #2 is.

@  Bearcat Bob : (12 February 2016 - 01:39 PM) GMan...we go through the same stuff all the time. I had to terminate the employment of a 24 year old because he missed at least 2 days a week. Our folks only work 4 10 hour days per week. When I informed him of the termination, he was astounded. He said thtat showing up at least half the time was good enough.

@  GMan : (11 February 2016 - 09:00 PM) My day...I've had two phone calls from former employees needing their W-2s because they weren't responsible enough to contact us prior to year's end with their new mailing addresses. The first call, the 23-year-old male had to ask his mother what his mailing address was, then says to her (I can hear him through the phone) "here, you give him the address". Second phone call was for 26-year-old male who had to have his mommy call and get his W-2 because he didn't know how to do it. No wonder this Country is going to Hell in a hand basket...
@  UVAObserver : (11 February 2016 - 04:27 AM) I called VT at 5-13 on another site.
@  UVAObserver : (11 February 2016 - 04:27 AM) I gave BC 0 wins. Called the reverse perfection. I had VT 12th, ahead of Wake and GT.
@  Bearcat Bob : (11 February 2016 - 02:25 AM) I hear Ricky Bobby exclaiming in the darkness that if you ain't winning...
@  hokiebird7 : (11 February 2016 - 12:40 AM) Maybe so but even before season i doubt they would have the last place team with only 1 win...probably 2...looking at it now BC may win zero unless they beat us up there...which could happen
@  Ryan4VT : (11 February 2016 - 12:02 AM) If you pick BC last, you give them 1 win tops. VT at 14th would be 2 wins top.

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 !
