Re: Sectional Final: #1 Wheelersburg vs #9 Meigs @ Jackson, 2/22

You can still slow the game down in high school and must do that depending on the matchup which in this case seemed to work out well for the Marauders with that strategic move until the 4th quarter. Some people such as I remember when the colleges had no shot clock and teams like North Carolina and ...

Re: Fort Frye adds WV State Champs to schedule

Hadn't listened to a Ft. Frye or Waterford football playoff game till this year. The play by play guy on the radio station i streamed over there cracks me up. He reminds me of a slower paced John Madden from years ago. Very methodical, slow paced, a few seconds between calls, gravelly and drawn out ...

Re: The influence on hiring decisions made by chatrooms/internet

Should have no influence on hiring/firing decisions at any level from the powers that be. If any true professionals let a rant, rave, opinion or idea affect a job decision of a coach in a sometimes thankless supplemental paying position that doesn't even begin to pay the bills @ the high school leve...

Why would Jackson or Chilli leave the FAC to play these small schools? Also Athens will never leave the TVC.
Athens likes that "All Sports" trophy in the TVC every year so they're out.

Per usual, I will be in attendance. It is one of my favorite weekends of the year and I’d only miss it if tickets became hundreds of dollars.
