  1. The OP just got "walloped" with words by @graham32
  2. I recall a couple kids with famous names. Nolan Ryan played for Rural Retreat a few years back. Chilhowie once had a QB named Harley Davidson.
  3. It would force the Riverheads' conspiracy crowd to adjust their imagined ADM from 450 1/2 to 500 1/2.
  4. I'd give an edge to the Blues for one reason...Greg Mance's game prep. That isn't meant to be a slight toward Luke Owens. Any coach who can build a winner in Wise is worthy of high praise.
  5. I'm picturing Ryan beside his lovely wife pretending to be excited over a new diaper genie.
  6. I think I've got this, @Plywood_King. Richlands and Graham =the successful older brothers of Tazewell Tazewell=The black sheep younger brother w/chip on shoulder Marion=unwelcome step-brother and nemesis to Tazewell May I add Abingdon; our smug, arrogant cousin who thinks his McMansion and BMW make him look wealthy?
  7. We get all this BEFORE the playoffs begin! 10/25 Graham vs Richlands 10/25 Abingdon vs Ridgeview 11/1 Union vs Abingdon 11/1 Ridgeview vs Pikeville 11/1 Central vs Gate City
  8. Warriors slay the Mighty Bear. Are we in the end times?
  9. This just proves there is no winner when Marion and Tazewell play.
  10. @Canes00 Agree 100% Thanks to VH$L greed, Marion's QB unnecessarily got hurt because they made the playoffs in '11. The kid was rewarded with torn ligaments in his shoulder, a six-hour roundtrip bus ride to Tunstall, and a 35 point beatdown, For good measure, he also got to watch his friends play basketball while he spent his senior season on the bench in a sling.
  11. Any fan not looking forward to the 2D playoffs should be checked for a pulse.
  12. Trenton Adkins will break this record.
  13. @Hokie1Pokie @old_school_blue I made a snarky comment that he had spewed more racial slurs than most coaches, but I do want to clarify a couple of points. First, I'm not calling Dennis Vaught a racist, and, frankly, I doubt he is one. It wasn't my intent to imply he's one either. That would be a serious accusation and there's no evidence for me to make that claim. I do think there's a difference between uttering a racist comment (which is bad) and actually being a true racist (which is far worse). I think DV would have started a card-carrying member of the Nation of Islam if he thought it would've helped him win a game. Many years ago, I was discussing DV with a long-time high school official. He told me Dennis Vaught was one of the most likable people you'll ever meet until it came down to winning a ball game. He said competition would change him from a mild-mannered gentlemen into a raging madman. He said the Vaught was a football genius but couldn't control his win-at-all-costs mentality. Secondly, I don't think anyone can question his football acumen (two titles in five years with two different programs that had never won before). I believe those of you who say he's a good man who made some mistakes. Dennis Vaught left a sad and sordid legacy. We'll never know what might have been, but he was certainly on his way to becoming one the most successful coaches in VHSL history.
  14. I'm guessing the 1% would include the African-American players from the '89 PH-Roanoke team
