  1. If there is no football in Virginia, but Tennessee has it, I wonder if some of the potential college prospects end up moving across the border?
  2. I’m surprised this picture hasn’t surfaced on here yet.
  3. I'm going to go ahead and predict that he reaches 3,000 before halftime against Central in the 2nd round of the playoffs.

  5. What are your thoughts on this one? I haven't seen Abingdon in person, but I've been told that they have a hard time stopping the run. If that's the case, how many yards does Adkins run for this week?

  7. I hate to tell you, but this one won't come down to a field goal in double OT.
  8. There is a major difference in a backup scoring a touchdown and leaving your starters in to run up the score. One thing of relevance that isn't mentioned is how much time is left in the game. I could somewhat see an argument if it's late in the 4th quarter, but if it's even early 4th it should be fair game for them to still try to put some points up. One youth league that I used to officiate in had a slaughter rule once a team was up by 28 points in the 2nd half. The trailing team got the ball at the 50 and kept it until they scored or turned it over. The chains were brought back in if they reached the 20. There were times that I liked this rule, but then other times it would kind of backfire. Most coaches would sub if it got to this point, but others would keep their defensive starters because they felt like the other team had an "advantage" because they got to keep possession of the ball.
  9. What are your thoughts on this one? Does Ridgeview bounce back in a big way or are they still down after last week's loss to Union?
  10. To say that officials are highly compensated is laughable to me. When I was an official, there were several times that I would leave my house at 3:00 and not return until after midnight. Most schools were nice enough to feed us, but there were some that didn't. On the nights that we didn't get fed, of course we had to stop and get something to eat on the way home. Add to that the cost of gas to and from a game that was sometimes a two hour drive, one way. Oh I almost forgot the verbal abuse that is lashed out at you during, sometimes before and after, the game. Most people have no clue what goes into being an official. All you see is what happens on the field on Friday night.
  11. I'm sure they are referring to Sproles. Hill is good, with a lot of potential, but he's not reached stud status yet.
