    The coaching staff at South Point just became light-years younger. Coach Tate will be tough to replace. South Point was not as good in 2018 as 2017. My bet is, they will not be as good in 2019 as 2018. With the loss of Coach Tate, that will probably cost them a little more. East Rutherford lost a ton to graduation. Therefore I don't see much competition there. I don't know what to expect from Burns, I know they surprised Shelby last year. and I don't think anyone else in conference will be a problem in 2019. South Point will most likely still be the #2 team in conference but as in the last couple years, second round is about all I expect to see from them in 2019. BACK TO THE TOPIC:. It will be interesting to see where Larry ends up. I would prefer to see him land at an established program. UNC may turn things around quickly but if I were in Larry's shoes, I would want to go somewhere more likely to be bowl eligible. And you are correct, I am not a Tar Heel fan but I pull for South Point graduates wherever they land, even if it's Clemson.

    Still no decision on the EG job? At this point, I would take that as a bad sign. Most people were thinking that they would have their man in place by Jan 1st.

    Twenty Years of 3A Champions

    I would put the 16 South Point team up against any of them. The first few games that year were rough but after they got the bug worked out, dang that defense was awesome.

    Will the retired Panther be back on the coaching staff next year?

    Final CP 2A Power Rankings of 2018

    Sounds like a State Title just ain't good enough for you 98. Does it piss you off y'all didn't get the #1 ranking in 2A? Five out of six and probably one more next year. Some people can't be satisfied. Shelby's dominance may continue another 40 years, who knows. But why can't you just be happy with what they acheived.

    Has anyone heard weather #72 Larry Dowdy is still committed to Ga. Tech. The triple option is gone. I was just wondering if he would be as well.

    It appears the conversion has moved back to FB and away from BS, therefore I will get out of the way and allow this thread return to it's intended purpose.

    Easy Work7, you are about to mess up Tyler12's natritive. As I said earlier Tyler, I think UNC will be better, will have a better record than this past year. Sometimes things turnaround right away but it usually takes at least a couple years to get everyone on the same page, to get all the players to buy into the new system. Again my beef with UNC is the arrogance that seem to come with many fans. It's the ol, Cam Newton look at me, look at me deal. If a school is good, we will know. No one will have to tell us. Likewise when they are "terrible" we will know that as well. It's like you hear people saying, "Well they are better than their record," No, No they're not they are exactly what the record says they are. You can't have it both ways. State can't be terrible because they lost a bowl game and the Heels better than their record cause they only lost games by one score. Bottom line State seldon wins big games and lately the Heels seldom win.

    I'm kinda hurt you don't wanna come up and see things from my perspective, until then though would you like me to send you some pictures? Sounds like it might be at least two or three more years before you get a chance to see for yourself.

    Come on up. It's a beautiful view from up here. From up on the high horse you can see all and know all. You seldom if ever make any bad calls and from the high horse your opinions are the only ones that matter. You would like it up here. I think up on the high horse is one of my all time favorite places to be. Oh, I don't know anything about her momma's side of the family. But I did hear they were from Arkansas.

    If you are over this summer for a cook out, I'll remember that. We usual do steaks or chicken but if you want burnt hotdogs, I'll be more than happy to provide. We don't do fries, but I'll be glad to throw in all the chips you want. It seems funny to me, I was reacting to someone else's post and now it's playground rules. " You can't talk about my mothers, uncle's, aunt on her daddy's side like that, them's fighting words." And sorry bout that, you got me dead to right on that tarbaby thing.

    That's telling me. I suck, my team sucks. If hating schools, because they aren't yours and putting others down is what makes you feel better, I'm not the one who needs to rethink their priorites. Sorry bout my high horse, we are all put together differently. I don't like sauerkatut but for some reason, beyond my understanding, some do. I was trying to stir the pot, but I wasn't trying to scrape the burnt stuff off the bottom. Sorry about that. Happy New Year to you as well.

    You guys with attitudes like that, people who actually hate other schools, are why the rest of us don't like or understand your thought process or your school for that matter. When I watch college bowl games, I always end up pulling for one team or the other. If the ACC is represented that is usually who I pull for. There are exceptions, Irish, Blue Devil's and Tar and Heels come to mind. I try to keep my mouth shut and my opinion to myself, but when I see stupid comments like the one quoted above, well that kind of crap gets my blood boiling. The "We're #1" chant should be reserved for teams that win National Championships or at the very least teams that win conference championships. The were better than you cause we don't drive tractors routine gets old as well. Believe it or not it is possible to support your school, without trashing someone else's.
