  1. Pikeville AT Pikeville! Yikes!
  2. Saw this on the Twitters. Radford is an unexpected game. 2021 Gate City Football Schedule 8/27 Richlands A 9/4 Radford H Saturday 9/10 Abingdon H 9/17 Marion H 9/24 Union A 10/1 Lebanon A 10/8 OPEN 10/15 Lee H 10/22 JSBattle A 10/29 WCentral H 11/5 Ridgeview A
  3. I think Burton will be a good game. Looking forward to it.
  4. I enjoyed playing all the KY schools. Paintsville, especially, was a great challenge. They had athletes everywhere, specifically, football players everywhere. Very impressive team. However, I did not enjoy playing the KY refs. Maybe if we could play at a neutral site with TN refs??
  5. Disappointed as we may be, this has definitely been a problem over the years, lots of schools saying no to Union. Outside of KY schools, I'm unaware of the coaches saying no to anyone. Tenn High was on the line a couple of years ago, but they couldn't get open dates to work out. Science Hill too, but they didn't want to come to BSG. The biggest problem with Tennessee schools is the embarrassment of getting beaten by a VA school less than half their size. And most of the ones that are the same size have either refused to play, are not practical distance wise, or wouldn't really offer much of a challenge. Wouldn't mind seeing the Bears play Bluefield if it weren't for the distance. That's the only reason I don't care for the Graham match up. Well, that and the powerpoint/playoff issue. There are many, many Tennessee schools that would offer great games AND are less than 2 hours away. Maybe next cycle.
  6. Absolutely! Bigwinners LOVES Riggs Stadium. Lol
  7. Well, it is a nice stadium! 😉
  8. Definitely good for TW, not sure about Union. I'm OK with Burton because of proximity, and I know they return a lot from a solid team. I'm thinking they could have found someone in TN to play, but I guess not. I can only surmise that they scheduled safe in an attempt for homefield in the playoffs. Graham and Central will be their stiffest competition, and both away. Abingdon lost a lot, so not sure what they'll be like next year.
  9. That was the only positive take away I had. No KY schools!!!!
  10. Talk about a nothingburger, Union's schedule for Fall 2021. 🙄 Aug 27 Lee A Sep 03 Richlands H Sep 10 JI Burton H Sep 16 Graham A Sep 24 Gate City (Homecoming) H Oct 01 Thomas Walker A Oct 08 Ridgeview H Oct 15 Central A Oct 22 Open Oct 29 Abingdon A Nov 5 John Battle H
  11. The .75 kids are all a result of tragic shop accidents, too horrid to discuss on an open forum. The. 5 kids are Mer folk. It varies as to whether the fish half is on the top or bottom. Kind of a hodgepodge, really. The .25 ones are just a head in a fish bowl looking thing, like the ones on Futurama. A result of the "Study of Medieval Torture Devices" class being a little more hands on...or, should I say, "hands off" than it should have been. Still not sure why kids keep signing up for that class. Although, Professor Reginald Stumpy did get Teacher of the Year again, so there's that. Clear everything up?
  12. I don't know the ins and outs of GC basketball culture, but I agree. Very surprised by that choice.

  14. 300 if we're lucky. The very bottom of 2A, which we won't be far from, could be playing schools with 480 more kids.
  15. Based on ADM figures from March 2020, schools in blue will be dropping classification. Schools in purple are 50 kids or less away from dropping down. That's not a huge number to lose, especially in SWVA. Union has lost over 80 kids since the 2018 ADM. Class 2 may get the worst out of this deal. Terrible solution.
