  1. I think a decision not to play football is a pretty easy one to make now! With CTE issues and the great unknown of the damage it does, if you can make it to college on scholarship in another sport, you are wise to do so. At a football crazed school like Union it is probably insulting not to play. Somebody, somewhere has done some thinking with their head instead of their heart and realized that education can get paid for by other means and that you can still be able to tie your shoes and recognize your children when you are 60!
  2. This thread is taking on the same feel as the Akers thread...
  3. This post is like the little annoying kid in gym glass, that when you are doing captains choice, is standing there jumping up and down yelling "pick me, pick me" some people will do anything to get noticed. Oh and 26 State Titles don't lie, Gate City is really good at sports!
  4. At least the kids will learn how to block and tackle, and maybe the O-line won't be a sive.
  5. Scott County numbers aren't declining like the rest of Southwest Virginia, if you school is north of a line from Gate City to Abingdon, you are in long term trouble numbers wise. I believe football at lower levels is dying and will like "club" sports in college ( you will have a football club and travel to play other clubs) whether it remains relevant thirty years from now only time will tell..but Wise, Lee, Dickenson, Buchanan, Russell and Tazewell counties will see dramatic decreases in the next decades.
  6. He had the basketball responsibilities before he got the football job! I am glad he is loyal to his obligation and if he were coaching your daughter, you would be too! As a proud alum, reality is hard to take sometimes as a fan and the reality is that GATE CITY HAS NO TALENT, and what "good " players they have they don't have enough of them. Go watch the Little League and Middle School it is just not there! The Gate City fan base is delusional and thinking a coach who has responsibilities can change the fact by quitting his basketball coaching duties is absurd. One day maybe twenty years from now when GC win another state title we can sit around and laugh about the laughing stock we have become, but the some of you react to everything with negativity we may be getting what we deserve!
  7. only when the program is down, DB is going through a really tough spot in football right now, I would expect to gain a couple or a least not lose any.
  8. And God forbid Gate City get a good player from East Tennessee...the world almost quits spinning when that happens!
  9. What percentage of Union's football team is from Lee County?
  10. I don't have a horse in this race and can only offer opinion, but if the school board and the people want this then they should do it..Lee High ain't working. This has been a mess for years and a prime example of sometimes things that never sort themselves out some times old never heal..I wish Lee the best in whatever they decide to do, but once you go back it will be set in stone and it would be nice to have Pennington and Jonesville back, they still hate each other anyway! maybe they could undo the Union merger and have Appy and PV back! LOL!
  11. With an enrollment of 666 it isn't any wonder Lee High is cursed, there is no way in the world I would have turned in that ADM number.
  12. East and Central both suck, other than bonus points, it doesn't do you any good to play them! Play North and South at least you might get a good game!
  13. I fully expect a max effort from GC, this week is the week of the season! Central and Union. Beat them both and win the conference and put the doubters to bed for another season!

    The talent level for football is at an all time low for them right now, but DB has always been baseball and basketball first school anyway...baseball is king.
  15. Now if they can get to announcers worth a crap everything will be fine..PJ all the time yelling and the other guy is over explaining everything.
