  1. Are there any schools in SWVA that have not started conditioning? I think today was Tazewell County's first day. I know Bland has been at it since June 22nd. I'm hoping they have enough to make a team this year and get to play a few games.
  2. Bland County submitted paperwork on Thursday; conference calls on Friday with coaches; starting this upcoming week I was told. Really strict guidelines and restrictions.
  3. Try opening the door next time, lol
  4. Big difference between being banged up and injured. Banged up, you play and injured you don't . Banged up to me means you're not at 100% which doesn't constitute a hang nail. You cannot compare an NFL player to a high school football player.
  5. I never said they weren't going to play, you're inferring (or others are inferring) something that's not there. Banged up simply means banged up. There tends to be a fair amount of stupidity these days for sure, lol.
  6. From what I'm hearing there are 4 or 5 really banged up. Graham may be in the same boat as Union having key players banged up.
  7. Going back and reading last year's thread on this same game, a lot of people had Richlands winning because Graham had not performed up to expectations. That was the game Graham really kicked it into high gear and everything seemed to click offensively and defensively. Hoping the GMen seize the opportunity this Friday and perform to their potential. If they do, it won't be a barn burner.
  8. I wouldn't be surprised it GW kept it close most of the game but Galax probably pulls away late 3rd or 4thQ. GW QB is very fun to watch. He's got some speed.

  10. Way to keep it classy (insert eye roll emoji and sarcasm font)
  11. Ronnie Davis , his defensive coordinator. He's got a state championship for softball under his belt already.
  12. It was such a kind gesture towards our band. They even played at a Bluefield College game. I hope other area schools will invite them to perform.
  13. Sounds like Princeton coach needs to get his players under control. If he's perpetuating or allowing this behavior, perhaps someone needs to take him to task.
  14. My advice “Build a Bridge, Get Over It” , “Let it Go”, “Move On” & whatever phrases one can muster. It’s over, bad call, almost any team can argue a bad call at some point or another. 2003 was a game costing call , Friday night, wasn’t. Teams can’t always use refs as an excuse for losing. Sometimes the other team is just better. Refs are human, some are probably are not unbiased as they should be. It’s unfortunate when that happens. Richlands needs to focus on Radford this Friday and put Bluefield behind them. The season must go on....best of luck Blues. I really think Blues can beat Radford or at least make it barn burner.
  15. Then my initial reaction to it being a bad call would be correct.
  16. I was there and thought it was a bad call at the time but if #5 was directly behind Forest then I’m like you it’s a valid procedure violation. The photo doesn’t clearly show #5 to the left. It would be great to have an aerial photo but I guess we all can just armchair ref the call. Either way, that call did not cost Richlands the game. They played hard but Bluefield is just on another level and they had some key players out.
  17. With all due respect, it’s ridiculous to compare 2003 to Friday night’s game. In 2003 the game was won and refs determined the outcome. There was one questionable call in my opinion Friday night. Bluefield had two TDS called back: two sloppy plays that allowed Richlands to score. If not for those missteps, the outcome would have been even more lopsided. Richlands played hard but they weren’t beating Bluefield this year, period. Anyone blaming the loss on refs didn’t watch the same game I did. Bluefield is strong, fast, talent all over the field. Richlands has talent in Webb and Forest. Simmons is decent at QB. They should have a good season when it’s said & done and make playoffs. If Bluefield had everyone in & healthy it would have been a more embarrassing loss than the regular season game with Graham last year. I’m not throwing any shade at Richlands , they always play hard and are well coached. I’m just looking at the entire picture realistically. 2003 is nowhere near 9/27/19.
  18. With VH$L, it’s always about the almighty dollar. Biggest money racket going in the Old Dominion!
  19. I have been to Big Stone Gap as recently as last year when Graham played Union. The train horn(s) blew incessantly during live play. I’m guessing at least the secondary reason being to draw offsides penalty. I’ll concede the main reason is to fire up their team’s defense (at least I would hope that’s the reason) Your suggestion as to why the AD acted as he did Friday night about the air horns is entirely plausible after attending the game at Bullit Park last year. My ears were ringing for days, lol. I’m all for horns, bells, bands, & fans; it makes for a great atmosphere. I’m in agreement with most, live play should not be subjected to a nonstop train horn blowing. Some may disagree.
  20. Congratulations to Union. Graham fought hard to come back but Union was solid not penalty ridden & more disciplined. Bears executed well on both sides of the ball.
  21. It was a thrilling game and if Graham can clean things up they won’t lose another regular season game. If they play like last night, they won’t beat Richlands at home.
