How does a little 3a team like Smith Co beat Sparta 35-0 and CHS has to score late to get a squeeker of a win? There is no way CHS would even be close to being able to beat Livingston.
This was a win for these boys. Let them feel good about it. Good grief do you feel good about bringing them down. I want these boys to feel great about this win. Yes, I would have loved to beat sparta by 100, but that didn't happen. So be happy with the win. These boys deserve some postive output instead of all the negative. I understand this team might not be as good as some of the teams in the past but guarantee you that they want to win just as bad.

<quoted text> what you don't understand is the fact that CHS is no the only football team in this community. Or in the Putnam county school system. UHS and MHS are both 2-1, so not everyone is just a cav fan and supporter. I know plenty of Cookeville kids goung to CHS and they deserve respect too.
I never said anything about these other schools I am sure they have there backstabbers just as well the point I made goes for any sports program the kids need the support of the community as well as the parents. I think its really sad that people post such negative coments on here about these kids and coaches. most of these people posting these coments probabley never played sports and if they did they were probably sitting the bench most of the time because they didn't have the drive and determination to win a spot as a starter it takes more work tham just dressing up in a uniform to have a starting postion on the feild in less u go to mhs or uhs where they don't have a lot of kids anyway feel free to respond if u want. Go CAVS

I don't think anyone would bee negative tward the cavs if they didn't bring it on themselves. Read back threw these post. Saying "6a is so great and look at our hard schedule"." We would kill Upperman, Smith Co, Livingston". You have to earn respect to get respect.

there you go again " UHS or MHS don't have many kids". I will gaurentee if you combined the schools of UHS and MHS they would still not be half the size school of CHS, but they would dominate you in every sport. UHS could in most sports now, but adding MHS for depth, would be even better. Why? Because the silver spoon kids and politics have ruined CHS sports. Its sad when the biggest school in the county has the worst coaching staff and worst team in football, when they have the best facilities and most money coming into the program. And the other guy is right. CHS has 2300 students, Livinston has 900. But LA would stomp the Cavs if they played. Its such bs at CHS.

I got sum news for u bro they may be able to beat them now but when I played they couldn't hold a candel to us. let me tell u somthing els cookeville has had sum of the best player in the reigon and I no because I was the best player in the region in 02 I won every award u could win I was region 3,5a deffensive mvp. player of the year not mention I was frist team all state nose guard and if u really think any of thoses schools could beat CHS u have lost ur mind. U have forgot to factor in the rival aspect of the sparta game and that any team can win on any nite if u under estimate the other team by the way coach cook coached me and that's one of the reasons I was as good as I was. bet u never even played as said before not all the kids have a silver spoon sum have to earn it and I commend them for it and this coaching staff may not be the best but they won't be anything without our support

hate to tell you this, but yourdistrict sucked then, and sucks now. If CHS still played in the Boro, how many district champions would they have? Zero. After week 2, CHS's district was 0-12. Now I think the district is 2-14. So don't brag about being all district, 15-20 kids are each year in all 30 districts across the state. By the way, what college did you go on to play and start at? And yes, I started at Tech 93-95.

I really am getting tired of ur post u need to quit being a coward and put ur name on ur post u no who I am ur post make no sense every school has it politics the bigger the school the more politics u have, its a fact of life get over it if u want to play ball earn it put up or shut up that's what I did and worked and it will still work y'all are bunch of titty babies want to play but don't want to work for it.THIS COMMUNITY is always with the team when they r winning and r always stabbing them in the back when they r loosing nothing new I went through it but I am a true fan for life I also coach caviler youth football and am trying to turn that program around so I no what its like to deal with parent who think their kids should play a lot more than he dose but if they want to play they have to show me they want to that's how it works.. go cavs

played at Riverdale 88-91 before coming to Tech. And yes I was all district and all state and had some D-1 offers. And no OVC is not glorified high school football. That shows how much about Football you know. Maryville might be glorified HS, but not 1-AA. I will put my college and hs accomplishments and records against anything you got.

playing in the mid 90's makes someone irrelevant? I guess cause Nick Saban played ball in early 70's means he is washed up. Your full of SHI* I know not to send my kid thre the Cookeville peewee system if your a coach.

" don't talk down or disrespect", you arte trying to talk down to a guy that has played twice as much football as you ever have. You are disrespectin a guy that his HS won more playoff games in one year than you did in four years. You lost all credibility when you called D-1AA OVC glorified hs football then bragged about trying to play at Maryville. You obviously don't know shi# about what your talking about. 4 years at Riverdale, 4 years Tech, 1 year in the CFL. I will compare my knowledge and stats to yours any day. When I played at Riverdale, Good Cookeville kids like Locke transfered down there to play because CHS was to currupt. Bottom line is, nothing has changed since expect for a few more wins because of eaiser district. Anyone that knows and follows football can tell this.

look at the score verse a 5a school 56-0. Look at what 4a Dekalb did with the same Sparta team you struggled with, DC 58 Sparta 7. Bottom line is, your wrong and I am right. Until CHS makes changes and quits all the politics, the will continue to be a embarassment just like their district is.

New year, new kids, new coach. Is it going to be a perfect season? No. It is transition year. You would be stupid to think it would be a perfect season. Give Coach Cook a chance. A true cavalier fan is going to support their team through the good and bad. Think about the players. Did you ever stop to think how this negativity affects the players? Obviously not or you wouldn't be talking about Coach Cook on topix? You would do the adult thing and speak to Coach Cook hinself. But, that would require maturity on your part.
