    The economy, and especially the automobile market, is about to see a huge turn for the better in Loris, if history is any indication...

    Rome wasn't built in a day. Sure the same is true of Loris. (Except for the actual town itself. That probably could be constructed/reproduced within a very short span of time.)

    Well tonight would be the final game for lots of seniors and next week the playoffs would have begun. Sure hope they let our boys play. Are there still 36 states playing right now while VA kids sit by and wave goodbye to their season / senior seasons for some of them.

    Trenton Adkins top 5 choices are...

    Hes going to a place where he wont get lost in the shuffle and with potentially (most likely) changing positions its a good fit vs the P5 schools. Best of luck young man!

    I was there when they played Greeneville in the playoffs a couple of years ago. This clip doesn't compare to the atmosphere of that night, but it gives you an idea of it.

    I say it all the time. Tennessee has the perfect system with 6 classes in football, 3 in everything else (4 beginning next year). And all 3/6 classes are divided evenly with about 50 in each 6 classes in football and approximately 80 in the 3 in everything else.

    The year that UNION went to APPO, it was cold as blue blazes, we had our butts kicked, thats all I remember, your crowd was loud , but they had alot on thier mind ,as that morning they had lost a student athlete....later that SAT/SUNDAY night our cheerleaders mother was murdered. The APPO community honored her the next week with a FLAG at half staff, very classy.I will say this ,your coach,community and team have much to be proud of and our prayers for coach SMITH will continue until he recovers.ROWDY maybe not , but CLASSY -YES

    He absolutely has ruined it for them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If we are not allowed in I help paint the field for the games and I believe I can get on the chain crew if needed. Exactly. Never been to Grahams stadium but in seeing pictures there is no reason the "25" is the same as put 25 in Appomattox's stadium. I'm sure the VHSL will try to make it so they can keep Ralphy happy and say "since it's a VHSL event....."

    I think it should be based on the capacity of the venue. It is ridiculous to throw out a number like that. Also, since Graham plays their home football games in West Virginia, will the same rules apply?

    Union is the rowdiest home fan base I’ve ever witnessed. That dang train horn 😂😂😂😂. The atmosphere for Graham/Beaver game is unsurpassed! Thousands at a HS football game in SWVA/Southern WV is amazing! Ain’t nobody getting rowdy if King Ralph doesn’t lift his 25 person mandate! That’s not even enough for every player on home team to have one parent. He’s ruined sports for our kids!

    WV begins playoffs next Friday, and as of now in AAA, 10 of the top 20 teams in the final poll will be shutdown due to Covid, including 4 of the top 8 teams. If they play the playoffs without those teams, 1) it will be a shame for those kids that made it and don't get to play, and 2) Princeton will make it further into the playoffs than ever before...

    The whacky WV football playoffs...

    But those things are going to happen. We knew they would with Covid. I guess we just accept it. The virus hits when it wants to hit. TN and WV have made adjustments on the fly, even if 5 minutes before kickoff. We knew there would be cancellations and things and this is more due to Covid 19, not the people running the state athletics organizations. I applaud them, they have tried to drive on with a season and they have put there foot down to keep the public safe, even if 5 minutes before kickoff. It's not an easy juggling act, but it's just that, it's a juggling act.

    It would be neat if each region got to host the title game on a rotating basis, but that truthfully is a logistical nightmare and the VHSL has had a pretty good showing with having the neutral site games with multiple played on same day. I think we would need to see the actual class numbers but five could work. I just don't see why the VHSL is so intent on reducing classes. There's more revenue in more classes and I believe it gives a fair champion. The difference between having a pool of 100 athletic kids and 500 athletic kids to fill out a team is a gigantic gap. There's no way Norton or Hurley should be expected to compete with Goochland or RE Lee for a state title. If you shrink divisions, it would be possible to see Burton (220 kids per 2018 ADM, may be smaller now) be expected to play a team like Richlands (680) in the playoffs. Right now, the gap in 2A is around 255 kids and 1A is around 300 kids, depending on if you wanna count real outliers at the bottom like Highland, which registered 57 kids. Council was listed at 108 while the highest was Northampton at 453 (Riverheads right behind at 447). That's a big gap and fewer means even bigger gaps. I guess you could go 0-499, 500-999, 1000-1499, 1500-1999, and 2000-all. But that's still asking Twin Springs to compete against Graham (who I believe will be under or right around 500 kids at next numbers) and Tazwell (who is right near that 500 line) competing against places like Abingdon and Northside. in that scenario, if a school like Tazwell or Giles wins a 2A title, they've damn sure earned it lol

    Well for the most part Tennessee has had a rousing success to go ahead with their season and are only two weeks from completing it.

    I think its solved then. I've read this thread for arguments of 4 and 6. It seems like this discussion everywhere seems to have strong pro's and con's with 4 and 6. Like I wrote earlier, split the difference and go to 5 classes. 5 is easy. No change needed, you don't need a nickle and 1 penny (6 classes) and you don't need 4 pennies (4 classes), you just need a straight up ole nickle, lol. With 5, I still think it's good enough to where the playoffs and state titles are not devalued, and I think if you have 5, a team that was likely going to win a state title with 6 classes will still win it with 5 classes. Now, if you want some real cool stuff that will never happen again unfortunately because of money. Return the state championships back to the local schools. We used to rotate every 2 years when it was like this with the East getting 2 years of field and the West getting 2 years of home field, etc. Lets have those state title games back on the homefield's of Giles, Graham, Union, Richlands, or Rustburg, William Campbell, Riverheads, etc. Wishful thinking here.

    Absolutely on both accounts. But the VHSL has never been a shining beacon of common sense, so who knows how they'll decide streaming rules. In a year where teams have been CRUSHED financially and most local businesses are in no position to help out fundraising wise, letting teams run their own streaming operations seems to make so much sense. I don't know what agreements the VHSL has with streaming outlets like NFHS, but I don't believe they cover every game, esp in our area. If their prior obligations aren't gonna cover a game, let each school stream it and have them decide to paywall it or sell ads on a FB live or something. Or, leave it up to each respective district. Allow the SWD or M7 to determine how they'll handle streaming knowing it's super unlikely the state will allow full bleachers. If the M7 wants to give home teams first dibs or allow each school to run their own streams (which is pretty simple in 2020, you don't even really need announcers) and the SWD wants to do the opposite, let It happen in for this year only. But every school should be exploring streaming games regardless, it's too easy to do now to leave that potential revenue just out there.

    After reading opinions on here. My personal opinion is a 5A system with A 12 team playoff (top seed in region gets a bye) and teams not qualifying for the playoffs have an option of a plus one game against an opponent of similar skill level. Could be a rematch or somebody not on schedule.
  28. 1 point
    I wouldn't hate that. I do believe it's better to see the occasional bad team make playoffs over a very good team getting left out but if you wanted to keep the playoffs at 8/16 and allow non qualifiers to schedule an extra game, that seems like a good compromise.
  29. 1 point
    I say keep the plus 1. That way everybody geta to play an extra week and quality teams make the playoffs.

    It didn’t make a lick of sense then either. On very rare occasions, a school can overcome a 5x enrollment disparity. By matter of scale, it would be equivalent to putting T.C. Williams in the Southwest District. Once in a generation, you may be able to beat a school that size at something. But ethically, it’s a sham.

    But it isn't always transitive between states because some take the sport much more seriously and some states have huge cities that have gigantic talent pools. Illinois has more people than Georgia but GA football is miles ahead on the whole. I understand your point and it holds true if both states value the sport the same but football is becoming even more regional now. NY has a ton of people but they don't produce the talent that comparable Southern or even Midwest states trot out.

    Give me your opinion on rowdiness.

    Great VA atmospheres in no particular order past and present... * Bullitt Park (PV & Union) * Riggs Stadium (Appy) * 5 Star (Lee) * Legion (GC) * Lawson-Fitchco (JIB) * Ralph Cummins (Clintwood) * Richlands * Graham * Lebanon * Appomattox * Giles * Radford * Parry McClure * Hurley * Honaker * Carroll Dale (JJK) Out of state.... * Anderson Co (TN) Probably the best pregame entrance I've seen. * Greeneville * Dobyns-Bennett * Knox Fulton (TN) Players enter through the aisles in the stands. * Alcoa (TN) * Elizabethton (TN) * Maryville (TN) * Kingston (TN) * Gatlinburg-Pittman (TN) * Belfry (KY) * Bell Co (KY) * Dorman (SC) * Byrnes (SC) * Valdosta (GA) * Camden Co (GA) * Vero Beach (FL) Best atmosphere we've found in Florida so far. * Cocoa (FL)

    I thought Appomattox was awful...oh that's probably cause y'all spanked our ass everytime we came there lol...I preferred the matchup we had in pearisburg in 2013 a lot better lol But the atmosphere to me was outstanding...about the same as the atmosphere at Giles home games when we were good...especially the playoff games...rowdy fans and great football

    Trenton Adkins top 5 choices are...

    I guess thats the decision he has to make, does he want to play the position he wants or does he want a shot at the NFL. Thats a decision only he can make. Imo he can play D1 RB, but there are gonna be guys more suited to the position. His frame lends itself to OLB, Safety, maybe Hback imo. He reminds me of Jalen Hurd from UT: can he play RB, yes. Is that his best position? No. Granted Hurd is bigger but similar build and running style. Im far from a college recruiter though.

    This is the one thing that really really makes me scratch my head. Like dude's the 4th Highest Rated Recruit to ever walk thru the doors at Toledo and they wont even give him a shot to run the ball??? In the MAC i feel like he is very very Capable of running the ball in that league. You dont have the numbers he's put up and not be able to play RB at the next level imo. Havoc no doubt happy that they got that ESPN slot we will get to see in some MACtion. I will say tho he could have a longer future at Db especially if he wants to play in the League

    The fact that the MAC gets the spotlight on ESPN on Tuesdays and Wednesdays couldn't hurt either I suppose.

    Yeah its its Official. Covid hurt his recruitment pretty heavy as well as having no film this fall has hurt. With this being a free year for all FBS and FCS Teams its made free Scholarships VERY Limited. Happy he has a place to call home at the end of the day even tho is not a P5 home like his talents project imo

    Biden/Harris

    The real question is the timing of which Trump and the new USPO General is now doing this. He's had 3 1/2 years to so call "fix" the issues at USPS and now 2 1/2 months before election he's decided to fix the issue. It's pretty obvious that this is a political move, considering he's been claiming without a shred of evidence that there is rampant voter fraud going on.
