  1. Eye-roll on the "butt hurt" since hardly anything has been said to deserve that. Graham played a great game, good play calling, good skills, and they were fired up and ready to play. Richlands had some players that got gassed early due to recovering from Covid and some just played badly. Energy from Richlands was extremely poor. Congrats on the win! Graham should have a great season.
  2. I cannot say what was said or done during the scramble for the ball - and I’m sure there was plenty from both sides - but I was there and saw the player get hit. The Richlands player was facing the home bleachers celebrating that they had the ball when he got hit in his back and everything broke loose. Also for whoever is interested, the principal and dad of the Richlands player was professional. He was calm, which I give him props for since his son was involved, and he did not approach the GC player. Richlands AD and others were on the field at the same time. Players and crowd were going wild, but adults on the field actually acted like adults.
  3. I think this is another coach from yesterday, but I’d still say you are right and it won’t change anything.
  4. I heard one of the Richlands coaches tested positive yesterday. Anyone know what the protocol would be in that situation? Will they still play?
  5. Since you agreed with BigWinners, here is a copy of my response to him. Seems like y'all just looking to get messy... Peace out and good luck if your team is still ballin'... "Actually, if you read my entire post and without a clear disposition against Richlands, you will plainly see (as in my quote from my post below) that my concern was that this could happen to any students and that I disagree with rules being changed at the end of the season. “ANY team could easily be in the same position that the Richlands STUDENTS” If Ridgeview is in the same predicament, then I hate it for them just as well. This particular thread that you are commenting on is about Richlands, but perhaps you should take the initiative to start one for ANY teams affected by the rules being changed at the end of the season. If you don’t want to read about Richlands, don’t open a thread with Richlands in the title."

  7. IF the rules were changed AFTER the official rules were established AND during the last of the regular season, THEN it is inappropriate. I understand that all of the schools had a representative involved, but ANY team could easily be in the same position that the Richlands STUDENTS were suddenly thrown into during the final week of regular season. Remember the students???? The ones this situation hurts the most??? Set an example, people, and stand up for the kids. If they go out in an early round, then so be it, but why take their round away?
  8. I understand and agree with Covid precautions and game cancellations, and for the most part, our region has been fortunate regarding quarantines and cancellations up to now. (I know there are been a lot of horrible illness and greater consequences, but let's keep the page to football.) But what reason has been given for all of the rule changes? Shouldn’t the rules and criteria for playoffs be set BEFORE the season? How can this happen? For the person who said why play Radford if it doesn’t count… 1-like someone said, for the experience, and 2-the first Graham game was not supposed to count, and now it does… maybe the rules will change again. Precedent has been set multiple times this week.
  9. Yes, game is in Radford on Saturday at 2 PM.
  10. Richlands has improved across the board since their first meeting with Graham, and I don't usually count them out, however, I agree with you. Cox is one-dimensional, and Graham will take the win.
  11. To better clarify because I agree, I could have been more clear. The participants on both the Tazewell and Richlands teams, and even Graham, know each other fairly well. It’s a small area and many of them run in the same social circles and have competed for years both against each other and sometimes with each other. They are very aware of the other’s strengths and weaknesses athletically. I would love to see them come out and see who can play the better football game. I know emotions and adrenaline run high, and all teams have their bad moments, but I was disappointed to see some of Tazewell’s behavior in the last game. They were a lot better skill-wise than Marion, but speaking only my opinion, they are better people than what they demonstrated on the field. If you’ve watched the game, then you will know what I’m talking about.
  12. All of the county players and coaches know who can do what, and I’d like to see a match up based on athleticism and strategy, not kicks in the face. Richlands for the win.
  13. Coach Wells said on the weekly radio show that they worked on that this week in practice, so we should see an improvement on Saturday. I think a lot of the weaknesses we saw last week could be attributed to first game scenario and it was against Graham, but Cox is still going to have to move and react faster. I don't want to be down on anybody's kid, though, so hopefully, that is just a first game thing.
  14. Who is Street? Cox will start and Keen is ready to step in if needed.
