Excuses for what winning? Don’t think there is any comparison. Was just pointing out the Avery fan bringing up the refs. If you gonna bring them up talk about all the calls. If it’s excuses for winning so be it. LOL

Mitchell has more talent than yancey county. Better qb. Better offensive line.  Better kicking game. Better running game. Problem with mitchell is we all know Mitchell has been out coached since Travis took over. We all say it in close circles. Players and Parents. Joe would have won 2 state titles at Mitchell already.  Cant imagine this game being any different.

Disclaimer: not excuse or one sided comments ahead.

Speaking of officials, last night at Owen was a blast. Never seen a crew talk as much as this one. Flag, 5 minute conversation. False start, 5 minute conversation. Late hit on qb, while he still had the ball. Owen called for holding. 5 minute conversation, then marked off 5 yards from the spot. Just before play starts, whistle. 5 minute conversation, moved back 6 yards. 11 yard penalty? Conversation, oh well let’s play.  Players run out of bounds, keep clock running. 
 

I know I wouldn’t do better, but man it was a comedy of errors. Again it affected both teams. 
 

go Mountaineers

I said it over on the other board, it's hard to play a Buncombe county team, with Buncombe county refs, in Buncombe county. Now, Owen DID have 1 more penalty than Mitchell, but they looked at Padgent after every play. I doubt they looked at Travise twice all night. It was the same at Erwin, and even worse when Mitchell used to play North Buncombe.

I'm just gonna stop you right there. I get real sick of armchair coaches in Ledger. Mitchell county has ALWAYS produced good football talent. We just have never had a coach to get the full potential out of our players. Travise is in his 6th season, and has produced a 64-14 record in that time frame. He is a young coach, and yeah, he has been outcoached a few times. It happens. But, there wasn't a game last year where he got outcoached. I'm their 3 losses, Erwin, Mountain Heritage, and Murphy, the Mountaineers got outplayed. Everyone seems to have already forgotten that last year, we had just graduated 15 seniors, lost 75% of our offense, 50% of our line, and the 2nd best QB in WNC of all time. It was supposed to be a rebuilding year for Mitchell, but yet they held their own against a much more talented Erwin team (aided and abetted by refs), went toe to toe with a pretty equal Heritage, and lost a heartbreaker to a more talented Murphy. On the Murphy game, Travise had an excellent game plan against the greatest coach in NC history. He was NOT outcoached. Mitchell actually played above their potential in the first 3 quarters, but Murphy's talent and depth eventually wore them down in the 4th. Heritage's talent, much like Mitchell's, remains fairly consistent from year to year. To put into perspective, in Joey's first 6 years as a head coach, he went 14-56. Not exactly awe inspiring. Building a program takes time, and Joey has done that, over 20 years. Travise has done that in 6. Daddy ball took Avery to the depths of the underworld, we don't need that horseshit here.

Sorry just my opinion. We hit a dead spot in talent a few years. Not saying travis isn't a good coach. But is he really better than riddle or Barnett or anyone else when they have the same talent. Everyone sees he is to worried about what Robinson legacy instead of coaching the game. The boys see it. Maybe he will get over the hump this year. But 98% of us deep down know Joe has out coached him. Nothing wrong with a difference of opinion.  But we all have said it at work or at the gas station and stands. We all have. We are better than mountain heritage 3 phases of the game. No way they should stop us through the air.  Its coming down to 2nd guessing.  There is no excuses this year. I heard that last year . Not saying I want another coach.  Its just an obvious observation .

Listen son. I know mh has only had a decade of winning. But Mitchells history of winning goes back to the early 80s. Travis is a good coach but we were here long before he put on a headset. Mitchell was known for football when you guys was was having 20 win basketball seasons  and 1 win seasons in football. Dont even start that nonsense. Mitchell isnt defied by 1 person like MH. A mitchell county son built mh football. Talent for talent we have  almost always been the same. It was the coaching . Now its flipped  . Joe has a leg up on us. He has out coached us consistently. Until travis proves otherwise.

Yeah no comment on actual post. Have you seen mitchell this year? Besides hudl? Is reading witchcraft where you are from? I guess we should go on feelings. Not facts. Lets take away. Asheville citizen. Mitchell Journal. Yancey Journal.  Maxpreps.  Cp. Now make a judge of talent.  Well I guess reading maybe is important on judging and talent.

Sounds like you are out of football knowledge now taking another road of being offended.  Melting like a snow flake. No one said anything what you are describing.  You are on here trying to find out about Mitchells football team. Probably even went to maxpreps and seen the stat line. You sound silly.
