  1. This is why your soccer knowledge is respected on this board! Nailed it!
  2. Grayson loses a lot of starters to graduation but have a lot of talented sophomores and juniors waiting for their time. Should be an interesting year for them if they can replace the Hollingsworth kid at QB. Denver Brown from Fort Chiswell transferred to Galax over Christmas break. His entire family played at Galax through the years. Will be interesting to see how Dixon utilizes him. This fall will mark the first year the middle school group I have talked about for a few years now will be eligible for varsity competition. I am looking forward to what those kids accomplish. This is a special group if they can all stay together, focused and out of trouble.
  3. Toilet paper should go over the top and absolutely never come from underneath. Anyone that prefers toilet paper come from underneath is a truly disturbing human being!
  4. Elon just hired Mike Schrage as head coach. Schrage was instrumental in bringing JJ Redick, Kyle Singlar, Mike Dunleavy, Jay Williams, Carlos Boozer and Shane Battier to Duke. He also began his coaching career as a graduate assistant under Bobby Knight at Indiana and later coached with Johnny Dawkins at Stanford. He spent the last four season as an assistant to Chris Holtmann at Butler and Ohio State. The guy can flat-out coach and has an incredible track record with guys of a similar skill-set to Ervin. Ervin could have made a far worse decision on who to play for.
  5. Josh Spurlin from Galax signed a LOI to wrestle at Appalachian State. Spurlin finished his 4-year career at Galax with a 133-16 record and 4 consecutive state championships.
  6. I give up. I've inserted a meme into this a half-dozen times and it keeps screwing up. We have had massive network issues all week at work. I would be more productive anywhere else at this point!
  7. I won't swear these are accurate. I got them from local high school marching band schedules. They were likely put together by Band Boosters while preparing for summer Band Camps.

  8. I know several guys locally who left the AOA for the Roanoke Association. They work the Three Rivers, Blue Ridge and River Ridge most often. My brief experience with the AOA left me with the distinct impression, it’s disorganized chaos. My cousin attempted to leave the Roanoke Association a couple years ago to help out the AOA since he lives in Galax. His first 4 games were at Lebanon, Castlewood, Grundy and Lee. Hell of a haul from Galax for a guy with a full time job! He went back to the Roanoke Association after 4 games.
  9. Probably doesn't matter from a variety of standpoints.
  10. We're both wrong! Bill Guthridge was named head coach on October 9th, 1997. He was born July 27, 1937. He had turned 60 a little more than 2 months before becoming head coach. I mistakenly thought he turned 60 after becoming head coach. Gregg Marshall was born February 27, 1963, making him a little over 56 years of age. Only 4 years older than Guthridge at the time of his hire at UNC. My point remains, with so many other attractive candidates, why hire someone nearing retirement age?
  11. Actually, he was 3 years older than Gregg Marshall is right now.
  12. That's what everyone said about Bill Guthridge when Dean Smith retired!
  13. It won't be Gregg Marshall. His name comes up virtually every time a quality job comes open. It's easy to forget or overlook the fact that Marshall makes over a million dollars more at Wichita State than Buzz did at VT and doesn't have to contend with football. And by all outward appearances, VT isn't going to offer a coach what Marshall makes at Wichita State. Plus, I don't see Babcock going after a 56 year old head coach. As an AD, you only get so many shots at getting these things right. Babcock has a great track record in replacing coaches (golf excluded) but the percentages suggest he has to get one wrong at some point. Replacing the most successful basketball coach in school history only to have to replace him in a few years due to retirement isn't a very attractive proposition for Babcock, I would imagine. Ryan Odum has an ACC pedigree and his son is a sophomore at Oak Hill Academy. That would be my best guess. Word out of Texas is Shaka Smart isn't well liked by the ridiculous Longhorn "boosters." He would be another interesting choice. Then again, Babcock hasn't gone "chalk" on many of these coaching hires in his tenure at VT.

  15. I have known this family since childhood. The younger brother has been baseball and basketball coach a decade longer than the older brother has been principal. How does that equate to nepotism?
