  1. Really they are the favorites in Region D. Best team from Wise/Pound since Pound went to state. I’m not sure how teams are going to defend them if you put McAmis and Hayes on same side of floor.
  2. Should be in the state tournament. Saw them all weekend at UVA Wise and they’re long with athletes. Hayes has improved more than any kid I’ve seen in recent memory. Wouldn’t be shocked if they won M7 and Region D, loaded bunch.
  3. Why switch helmets all the time? You never saw PV or Appy switch, stick to tradition or at least establish one.
  4. Lot of politics going on here. It led to running Williams out of town in basketball will it in football too? JIB better pray that Fischer takes the basketball job if not that coupled with this move would have your two main programs going from regional contenders to also rans.
  5. Union survives 5-3. Grayson left a small village on base. Hunter Anderson with big time pitching. I’m sure if GC had it to do over they’d walked Baker. His homerun was the difference and they had a base free. Not sure we’ve got anything for Lebanon but man what a hell of a ride this has been. I’d never dreamed they’d be a game away from the state tournament when this year began.
  6. Yes, everyone knows you. Hope to see you there! Go Bears! You do well supporting football and basketball, I’ve not seen you at a baseball game all year?
  7. Union hosts Grayson Monday. I expect to see you there, we’ll need all the fan support we can get.

  9. Then what is the point of playing or attending any of these games? So Battle is 1, Union 2, GC 3, Central 4? There seems to be no point to any of this.
  10. What a God awful setup. You can finish second in the regular season and fourth in district tournament and be the one seed? No wonder nobody can keep up with this stuff.
  11. I think it all changed when Abingdon came in. They did away with regular season automatically gets one seed because Abingdon could win and you could be giving the one seed to someone who didn’t win regular season.
  12. Unless the M7 changed their point system that’s not accurate. Union would outpoint JSB with a win or a JSB L.
  13. So if Union beats Abingdon or GC beats JSB, Union is the M7 #1 for regional baseball? Not going to lie, I didn’t see this one coming.
  14. Do any of these players have college offers? If so where?
  15. He throws harder than Moore. That’s what concerns me from a Union standpoint. I always forget Abingdon, I’ve not seen them. I’m referencing the 2A schools. Key to beating Grayson is contact. Their defense is shaky.
  16. Union would much rather play Graham. Grayson has a strong baseball tradition and one pitcher who is better than anyone in M7.
  17. Seems to be the trend at PV/Union the last 10-15. When football is rolling b-ball is just ok when b-ball is rolling football is ok. Reminds me of the Tyler Vernon years when he didn’t play football but the b-ball team made the state tournament.
  18. Maybe the kid just wanted to play basketball?
  19. Evidently the officials voted out their assigner and longtime official Johnny Poole is the new man in charge? Will this have any impact on the officiating?
  20. Aaron Williams interviewed this week from my understanding. He put in an application at some other places but from what I’ve been told he really wants the Abingdon job. He could make them dangerous in the M7.
  21. Will this lead to any players transferring to Union?
  22. Best coach in SWVA history, not even sure it’s debatable at this point.
  23. Baseball is the most competitive sport in far SWVA on the male side. I expect that to continue this spring, our area has produced some really good players recently. It’s interesting to watch around here, many have adopted this launch angle philosophy which has led to great success for the better players and has led to complete failure for the others.
  24. Rarely if ever discussed on here but man what a run these last two years. Back to back trips to the Final 4 and to do it after losing all they lost last season. Pretty incredible, I wouldn’t be surprised if Wise isn’t a sellout Tuesday.
