    Top coaches who no longer coach

    Roger Seacrest
  2. I think I will like it better. Its still provides opportunity to exchange and its a much more focused source of HS football info than scrolling twitter.

    Who was the best 4A team ever in N.C.

    2004 Indy. Were not challenged and dominated even on off nights. Closest game by far was 4 TD win late in playoffs. 2009 Butler was pretty good too. The Wake teams of the past few years are impressive as well.

    Carson head coaching position

    I think this will be great fit and that Daniel is ready for the challenge. He has had great mentors, paid attention, and will do things the right way. I think Carson wound up getting the right guy at the right time.

    3A West: NW Cabarrus 41, Tuscola 8

    Blake and Wilds-Lawing are really good. I agree that the thing that really sets this team apart is their O-line. They are big and physical. When paired with the backfield talent they have, they can really dominate a game. May be a long night for Tuscola.

    West Caldwell

    A lot of folks would do well to read that post. Good stuff.

  8. Curious question for the amateur bracketologist out there to ponder. If Cuthbertson had drawn a "4" to break the tie in the Southern Carolina 3A, would Marvin Ridge and Monroe have been out? Apparently it didn't happen ( Monroe 4, MR 5, Cutty 6 i think was the draw) but in reading the latest iteration of the seeding process, neither would have qualified ahead of Cuthbertson. There will be a few head scratchers when the brackets are official but this would have been interesting and almost happened. You have to love a good puzzle.

    Preliminary Brackets Posted

    The preliminary is a good draw for the Blue Devils.

    Was there a draw for 3rd in SPC

    I am not positive on this. I think there may be a caveat that requires an order in the conference that will be used to affect the seeding process even for those at-large teams. If so, then there will have been a draw at some point. Similar perhaps to the draw in the Southern Carolina 3A to determine 4-6. The good news is that the folks in Chapel Hill do their thing this morning and send out some brackets shortly.

    Was there a draw for 3rd in SPC

    Don, I think in this case there is no draw and all are seeded as at-large. The conference size denotes only 2 automatic qualifiers. Of course this may have changed and many of the posters that stay on top of the process can probably set us straight. I believe a 6 team conference only gets two automatic bids.

    Running Clock

    The current form of the "running clock" should be shelved. I don't disagree with the premise but the way it is often handled doesn't do the game justice. I would like to see some modifications. Perhaps stop the clock while officials talk, administer penalties, etc. and stop the clock as usual for OB and incomplete passes but restart it once the ball is marked ready for play. That would shorten the blow-out but also allow teams to get valuable snaps for reserves. The current version would allow, In theory, either team to decide that they aren't going to run another play and we could watch the officials chat and walk off yardage while the remainder of time runs off. Just my two cents...

    Adjusted RANKINGS 11/6/18

    The adjusted rankings are interesting. In each classification there are some head-scratchers. The Robinson/Kannapolis ranking is one of them. That one will likely get even more weird after Robinson plays Anson this week. Its all fun to try and figure out which end is up and where everybody will wind up. There are a lot of scenarios/brackets out there and those guys are usually pretty close.
  15. Chip English left West Caldwell for Grissom High in Huntsville.
  16. This is one to watch. Great defense against prolific scoring. Teams that play really good defense and even emphasize defense as a core value have become few and far between. Looks like it might be kind of an "old school - new school" match up.

    This one is going to be fun to watch. Lots of quality in the conference with those top 5.

    Mt Pleasant vs Concord

    Sportsbroadcaster was pretty close in his prediction. Sounds like a pretty even battle of two teams not accustomed to being in the situation they were in. Congrats to the Tigers for getting the W.

    Kannapolis at Mooresville

    Tough loss for the Wonders and nice win for the Blue Devils. An exciting game to watch for fans of high school football. The setting at Coach Joe Popp Stadium is always top notch. In the end, Mooresville made more plays than K-town and the Wonders have some things to clean up. Kannapolis moved the ball with ease at times and the Mooresville run game was better than expected. Looking ahead, Kannapolis has a couple of more tests coming up before heading into what looks to be a tough conference schedule. They have some work to do but have talent and have time. The Wonders can still have a great year if they gain consistency and clean up some of their mistakes and penalties. The Blue Devils have new schemes and solid team speed. Offensively they impress and can move it on the ground and in the air. Kicker and special teams looked good. They have some work to do defensively as most of the I-Meck can be hard to slow down. It was a battle between two teams that can make noise later in the season and will be fun to follow these two teams to see what happens. Hats off to the Blue Devils as they open 3-0.
  20. Which NC teams play well on special teams to the point that its obviously a team strength? At the high school level, i think its often overlooked and offers room for great improvement. I don't see as much film/as many teams as i did in the past and would like to know what you guys see on Friday nights as far as mastery and consistency in special teams play. There are a few teams in the past several years, highly ranked and even made deep playoff runs, but were not very good in the special teams aspect.
  21. Tough matchup for the Tigers. I think Central is a team to watch in the SPC this year and may be the favorite. The Vikings are talented and fast and Coach McClamrock and his staff have them playing well early. MP not used to staring at 0-3 and have their backs to the wall.

    Carson at AL Brown

    Never know what can happen on a given Friday. Lots of respect for Coach Pinyan and his program but Kannapolis should have too many weapons, and more importantly, a team speed advantage for Carson to stay in. Its early in the season but I think this team will become a power running team. The limited success they had a against a solid Marvin Ridge team came in sets including two tight ends and straight ahead attacks. Watching teams develop early in the season is always interesting.
  23. A couple of teams that are at the edge of "top ten", Kannapolis beat Hopewell last week while MR handled South Meck. We will certainly learn more about the Wonders and Mavericks Friday. Kannapolis looks to have more depth than last year, a strong running attack, and veteran leadership offensively and defensively. While I haven't seen much of Marvin Ridge in pre-season, I always expect them to be well coached. Any other thoughts on this match up?
