    Guys, if he was saying sexual stuff to high school girls, he deserves to be fired. End of story. This isn't about #MeToo or anything else, it's about protecting young girls from being sexually harassed or objectified by a teacher or someone in authority. It's not appropriate and it's not okay. If he didnt, then he has every right to defend himself. But the number one concern shouldn't be his job or status as a football coach, it should be keeping creeps or worse out of schools and away from young people.

    Guys, false reports of rape are extremely rare. Somewhere from 2-10%, and the 10% is a dubious number. Most agree the number is closer to 7% max.

    COACHING IN 2019

    It's with a heavy heart that I must announce, after praying and discussing it with my family, I will not be returning as head coach of the Tiburon Landsharks for the 2019 season of offline dynasty on NCAA Football 14. I won't rule out coaching again in the future and I will certainly miss the kids and the community, but between work and personal life, I've found that adding coaching to my schedule is too taxing when considering how many important things there are in life, like Red Dead Redemption 2. Ultimately, I want to be able to take some time to go hunting, catch some fish, and maybe take a trip to Tajiti. Just have faith, stick to the plan, and eventually another opportunity will arise. Probably somewhere in Scott County.

    2019 schedules

    I missed this before and can't resist commenting. Galax doesn't duck anybody and has arguably the toughest Class 1 schedule in Virginia year in and year out! Radford - Have played every season since 2005 - Radford was the 2018 Class 2 runner-up - Only regular season loss was to Galax 41-21 @ Radford. Glenvar - Have played every season since 2011 - 2014 Class 2 state champion. Altivista - Played 2013 and 2014 - Won 2 consecutive Class 1 state championships in 2013 and 2014. Giles - Played from 2013-2016 - 2014 Class 2 state champion. Northside - Scheduled for 2017-2020 - Class 3 quarter-finalist each of the past 2 seasons. Martinsville - Scheduled 2019-2020 - Solid Class 2 program with rich tradition. Graham - Played from 2011-2016 - 2018 Class 3 state champion. Fort Chiswell, Grayson County and George Wythe are all district opponents. If you'll notice, many of these games overlap seasons, meaning Galax played many of these teams in the same season. There's something to be said for being battle-tested!

    This settles the debate as to who the best pitcher in 2A is. It’s the one who one-hit an opponent and struck out 16 of 21 batters to win a state championship. Congrats, Richlands!

    I would have to say Robbie Newman's 43 yd HB option catch for Jonesville to tie the 1988 championship game with 1:22 left (only his 2nd catch of the season) was the most important single play in SW VA. It was one of the most unlikely plays I have ever seen succeed and it led directly to a state championship in a school's very last game. As for a play that set up a dynasty it would have to be the final play of the first half in the WV AAA championship game vs Parkersburg. Bluefield ran the Halfback pass where the QB hands off and circles out to receive the pass. The play tied the game at 7-7 and gave Bluefield momentum at the half and they went on to win the game and they have rarely lost that "momentum" since that play. It was the first of 11 championships and many successful seasons since.

    Auburn defeated Rappahannock 1-0 (2OT) Galax defeated Northumberland 3-0 It’s an all MED final in Class 1 soccer! They split the regular season meetings with Auburn winning 1-0 in Galax and Galax winning 2-1 in Riner. Galax won the MED final 3-2 and the Region C final 2-0. These two teams have played 11 times in 2 seasons, all competitive games!

    Greatest/Most Impactful play..

    I think Ben Brown ripping the ball away from the Va High running back "Brown" in OT a few years back and returning it for a TD is one of the greatest plays in Blues history. I also agree with Ryan on the super hit and the super finish at SD, but there are so many others, ( the fake punt in the 2006 Championship is another one that comes to mind, who would think 4th and 15 and you fake a bunt, are you kidding me) GO BLUES!!!!

    Really they are the favorites in Region D. Best team from Wise/Pound since Pound went to state. I’m not sure how teams are going to defend them if you put McAmis and Hayes on same side of floor.

    I don't disagree but like any uprising, "movements" have to begin somewhere. While neither example you give is socially acceptable, they do deserve a very different punishment. My issue is, like anything else in modern society (including your example), a movement intended to give voice to and empower women has been perverted for political gain. Differentiating between the two isn't terribly difficult but most people are too lazy to do so. They would rather take the silly Facebook meme and believe it as absolute truth. Groupthink is an epidemic in our society!

    The perception (steaming from the Kavanaugh hearings and other public examples) is that women "aren't believed", and nothing could be further from the truth but young women seem to be getting this idea that they shouldn't report these types of things(rape, inappropriate touching, suggestive comments, assault, etc) because they wont be believed. There is also a HUGE difference between an accuser being believed and a accused perpetrator being proven guilty. I read some of those comments on social media regarding the young lady peaking at the school board meeting the other day, "no one believes her" and "the powers that be don't believe her" when that's not necessarily whats going on. The sad truth is claims need to be investigated 100% of the time, but that doesn't mean that convictions will occur 100% of the time, and the accused cant be punished based on accusations - removal from a teaching position based on accusations is a different situation than being found criminally liable

    Heard Central has a lot of size this year. They are playing great in team camps and playing as a team. With Hayes and Isaiah both on the floor, they will be hard to stop. Also have a lot of size under the goal.. Better watch out for the Warriors this year!!

    You can't lump political garbage in with real life. Nothing that happens in today's political landscape is based in reality! It's designed to divide the country along political lines. Our country isn't built on the traditional two-party political system everyone knows (republican / democrat). It's built on the two-party system of divide and conquer!

    Effects 88.7% of rape victims are women on average 68% of sexual assaults go unreported 98% of rapists will not spend time in jail Juveniles accounted for 16% of forcible rape arrestees in 1995 and 17% of those arrested for other sex offenses 1 in 4 women will face sexual abuse in their lifetime Since 89% of victims of sexual abuse are female and factoring in the above information, what would you expect? This is how any "movement" begins.....to bring attention to glaring disparities in the way humans are being treated! #MeToo is not perfect but it's a start and it's not going away.

    That's not the way it is anymore. Teams like Alabama or Penn St. that stick to one helmet and never change are the minority now. Kids love flashy and new. And that starts in high school ball.

    On Thursday, Slemp said the comments, stapler-throwing and alleged hitting of the student were all inappropriate. Given the student’s testimony on the stapler incident and the length of time that had passed between the alleged hitting and its reporting, Slemp said neither incident could have been prosecuted, “We do not set policy for schools or school districts,” Slemp said. “When something is brought to us, we examine it to see if a victim has been harmed in a way that is criminal in nature. We recognize that this conduct is clearly something that the school board or administration should address. However, inappropriate action does not always rise to the level of criminal activity.” Copied word for word from the article. The criminal investigation found his behavior “inappropriate” but not rising to the level of a crime. Not exactly “not guilty” and certainly not the behavior that should ever be allowed in our public school system!

    They have attempted to bunt a lot throughout the game. A few strike 3 bunts foul even. This isnt a bush league situation but a style of play for Madison I would believe. Plus its 1-0 in the title game, you do whatever gives you the best chance to win.

    The 1981 Snow Bowl was Graham hosting Tazewell and an unthinkable long pass and catch from Eddie Neal to Lee Crimes in heavy snow, thus winning the game. Of interest, the Tazewell defensive back slipped and fail leaving Lee Grimes with wide open terrain down the middle of the field. That DB for Tazewell was the super talented Jimmy King, a multi star athlete and former John Battle Baseball coach who won 2 state titles and he coached football. Now, he's of course the principal at John Battle High. In 1981, Graham had a first class jobbing at Martinsville in the state semis in which 2 officals were actually intoxicated, yes... they were literally intoxicated. Graham lost 15-6 in probably the worst one sided officiated game at the High School level I have ever seen, and that includes all sports. Martinsville lost 20-6 the next week to powerhouse Tabb in the state title. Around Bluefield over the years, some will tell you that the Graham of 81 left a state title on the field. (I've heard this from a few including to former Graham assistants. Graham has a solid team, but Tabb was the real deal in the early to late 80s and Graham would have had a lot of stuff go right to beat Tabb, but they should have beat Martinsville. Graham outplayed them and got absolutely jobbed. One other thing about Tabb in 1981, they only played 6 teams in regular season. They played 10 regular season games, but played 4 teams twice. Now, thats weird.

    Galax did go 6-4 in 2015 and won the Class 1 state championship over Riverheads. Several small schools in our area as well as across the state schedule quality competition but many pad the schedule with Little Debbie snack cakes. Essex and Riverheads have always scheduled quality opponents and the results speak for themselves. Haysi and Clintwood never ducked anybody.

    Greatest/Most Impactful play..

    For PV, the most remembered offensive play is probably their last offensive play from scrimmage in the 1989 finals vs. Lunenburg. On defense, either the final 2 point conversion play in 1985 vs Lunenburg or the final play vs Appy in 1997. On special teams, probably the blocked field goal on the last play vs Madison in 1982 which produced PV’s first state title.

    I'm not sure about the whole transferring him from the high school down to the elementary/middle school either. As a parent who has a daughter going into middle school in August, I would be outraged by that move if that were the school she were attending. I know I said earlier in the thread that I though Jimbo was an a-hole, but not that TYPE of a-hole, it's quite hard to argue when 16 people have come forward now.
