  1. Next fall is looking promising however. This spring season may have some cancellations and delays.
  2. I hope they keep the Plus-One option, even if things get back to normal. It could be just that "optional". Sort of like a Bowl-Game for teams. Lord knows, the athletic departments are going to be in a pinch for cash after this year. On a side note: It would be nice if teams were to stream their games online this season. I know, I would be willing to pay to watch, if I had to.
  3. 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.
  4. Unless they play another 0-10 team and feel like they have a chance to win one. Also, the plus one could be optional. Not every team would be able to find an opponent anyway. Maybe both teams could agree to split the revenue also.
  5. I say keep the plus 1. That way everybody geta to play an extra week and quality teams make the playoffs.
  6. I say keep the "plus one" If VA goes to a 4A system. That way everybody gets an extra game and maybe we can give them all a snack bag and trophy.
  7. 4 classifications is the plan for now. Until they realize they make more money with 6 and let everybody and their uncle make the playoffs.
  8. 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?
  9. Nothing to me compares to Graham-Bluefield. However, the atmosphere at Appomattox last year was a great experience. Going to Union and Giles is always a nerve-racking experience for the opponents. The tradition that Appomattox has started over there is a little intimidating. Very fun to be a part of. Graham-Bluefield took a hit when the powers that be ruined the tail-gating experience. Would literally have a couple thousand folks in the parking lot pre-game tail-gating, playing corn hole, etc. . Even so, nothing like 10,000 to 12,000 bitter enemies who go back to being friends after the game is over.
  10. Penalties were a problem with Graham all year last year. It hurt them badly in the state semis. As for that Richlands-Poquoson game, Richlands couldnt get in rhythm because the ref kept standing over the ball until Poquoson got their defense set.
  11. Prayers for coach Smith and his family.
  12. They all finish with a record of 0-0-0. Unless Ralphie takes action.\ Not sure what Galax has returning, but they are always a top pick in 1C.
  13. Still in phase 3.... and the Governor has not even mentioned sports. It's tine to start asking questions and demanding answers.
  14. I say with the political environment in Virginia- the answer is NO. One side wants to keep the country open. One side wants to shut it down. In Virginia, the party in control wants to shut it down. Im guessing no sports.
  15. Bluefield benefited tremendously by not having to play Lord Botetourt, Graham, Richlands and Tazewell. Those would have all been good opponents for Bluefield this season.
  16. We will never know. Im looking forward to that Graham - Tazewell matchup in the spring. Hope it happens.
  17. I tend to agree with Gridiron. I would lean more towards 5-0 then 3-2. How about 4-1? Graham has added a very good coach to the ranks with Yubrenal Isabelle of Bluefield / NFL / NFL Europe fame. Graham has plenty of weapons returning and possibly the best player in the region in Xayvion Bradshaw. The games between Graham, Tazewell and Bluefield would have been good battles this year.
  18. Yes. Not a fan of the short seasons
  19. I feel as if they will get to play. The other states have faired well for the most part. The political climate at the time will determine if the Governor allows it The ball is entirely in his court. If there is a lot of backlash from his base, the kids will play. I may be totally wrong, but that seems to be the trend in other states. Folks standing outside of the VHSL headquarters rallying need to go to the Governor's mansion. The VHSL has plans in place. Those plans mean nothing unless the Governor gives the green light.
  20. After the election. Which may take a while to decide.
  21. Doesn't matter what the VHSL does. They can have all the plans in the world to play tomorrow, but as long as Virginia is in phase 3, there will be no sports. The Governor and State Senate will either have to move us out of phase 3 or re-phrase what is allowed in phase 3. Seems like political posturing to me The VHSL has its hands tied.
  22. They should. They did last weeks game for Princeton too. Good quality and play by play. First broadcast at Mitchell was a little laggy, but I think that was because it was at Mitchell. Last weeks broadcast went pretty smooth. I'll post the link, Im planning to watch.
