Re: How do you watch a game?

Re: The State of Officiating... serious questions. Discuss.

My humble take is that I let them play more under the bucket than probably most. But if ur arm extends it’s a Foul. No question. Out top not real contact allowed unless defense has the position. Also I’ve seen it a hundred times. There might b a push n the back but ball goes out of bounds. The team ...

Re: Official Suspended by OHSAA

I don’t want to seem like a stick in the mud but seems pretty cut and dry to me.
Home should wear white.
By not enforcing this yes official should b penaltized.
Is it the end of the world, no, But jersey color is a big one to let slip by.

N-Y /Trimble. Traditional rival

Re: What makes some schools good every year and some not so good every year

I really think in my area (TVC) it’s what I call generational players. The last names don’t change. Trimble for example. Core group are same families. And when other teams have good years it’s names that have been there before. I use Trimble for this example because they Good year n year out. And th...

Re: TVC Expansion

The problem with FF is they too small for Ohio and too good for Hocking. Athens is trying to beef up their sched and I think will try even more n next few years. If Vinton can keep their turnaround they don’t want a smaller school either. NY put them on non conference schedule so why add them to le...

Re: Ohsaa making Cheerleaders pay to cheer?

It’s very simple. In football no limit to number of players (plenty of room on sideline). Should b same for cheerleaders. In basketball it’s limited to 15 (lack of space ?). So limit basketball cheerleaders for same reason. Problem solved

Re: Region 27 #6 Fisher Catholic @ #3 Trimble

Not sure how much truth, but heard they are bringing n industrial fans and helicopters to dry field by Friday. And Sat morning the local fire dept volunteered to wet it back down along with all local alumni stomping up all grass. Like I said. Not sure if my sources are correct or not.

Re: Week 9 Trimble @ Southern

This game will be over in first quarter the next 3 weeks tomcats will be trying to figure out how to stop Lucas Trimble's lack of any real competition down that way could really hurt them in a slugfest with battle tested Lucas. No slight to Harvest Prep, but I believe the region comes down to Trimb...

I watched VC play Athens. I honestly think they are 1 missing piece away from beating NY. That being said it’s a big missing piece. NY by 2scores

Re: Athens in the TVC: The Numbers

If the original argument was Athens is too big. Then I’d like to see the numbers for Trimble on Hocking side. We all know they aren’t way bigger in school size than ther league. Just better. So maybe Athens is just better with better coaching.

Re: Indications Point To The Elimination Of The High School Football Kickoff

I understand you don’t want to take away the onside kic. Especially late n game. So why not start with no kickoffs in 1st half. Get the ball on 30 yard line? after a score. Then give team option in 2nd half to kick or give opponent ball on 30. Not perfect but maybe a compromise

Re: Trimble (4–1) @ Waterford (4-1)

Trimble wins this game. I have no rooting interest in it but will be there cause winner will win league and have a home game in week 11. Waterford is good. But from what I have seen the Tomcats will just wear them down over 4 quarters. With all that being said. If Trimble decides to put the ball on ...
