So you are not allowed to comment on SGHS Football on Topix anymore. So much for Topix being about free speech and open discussion about relevant topics in the community. Censorship is the first step in loss of freedom and Topix is no better than the Greeneville Sun anymore.

Agree, there is talent on the team but the coaching is subpar. The thinking was when they were moved down to 1A it would take care of all their problems. No, they do not even look like a good 1A school now. Maybe they should consider doing away with sports and concentrating on academics and letting the players go to other schools who know how to coach and motivate. It is interesting to note the last state champion from South Greene did so as a member of a West Greene sports team with a West Greene Coach. The handwriting is there on the wall but nobody in the community cares or can't read anymore.

Jones could not coach a wet dream. He has no clue. Larry ricker is rolling in his grave if he saw what that school has become.

4 receiver scheme with a quarterback who can't get the ball to the receivers and not the best of hands on the receivers. Then pack 3 backs in the backfield to try to hide the fact you are trying to run the ball. They have talent but no clue how to maximize it. Hint, Hint, 3 teams have now beat you with the Winged T.

Really ? Have you watched a game ? They are not having fun. They are embarrassed and getting discouraged. This is hurting there chance to get a decent scholarship. Someone needs to step in about coaching. And yes I blame that no good piece shit principal. Softball coach 2 years ago had team signed up to play in all kinds of games and tournaments for practice and she said no..that's bullshit.

Why is it that when SG starts losing you have to hear their fans whine an complain. What about all the times you were winning? The shoes on the other foot for a change and you cannot stand it. You have rubbed the mighty SG in every other county schools faces for years. Well guess what, KARMA is a bitch, get some of it. Its way past due!!!

SGHS has won outstanding awards sooooooooooooo get over it. Yeah sports not so good. Jones and Gregg need to be replaced. But the school is doing as good as GHS in a lot of other areas. Remember it is about getting an education.

Dr. Cindy Bowman is a good principal. She has proved that more than once. Kids are just lazy and lack drive.

You make a good point. South Greene has led all 3 games at half time but lost the second half badly in all 3 games, that is coaching, an ability to make adjustments, and conditioning, and when you cannot out condition a team who only has 16 players you are in serious trouble. The rest of the season does not look that good. Hampton, Cloudland and West Greene are all losses unless the team improves. Unaka, Cosby, North Greene and Hancock County are all very weak single A football teams, so they do have a possibility of winning 4 football games in one of the weakest single A regions in the State. What does that say? South Greene is at the bottom and I mean extreme bottom of football in the State of Tennessee. Is this acceptable, evidently the answer is yes.

I agree, Dr. Cindy Bowman is the best principal any other high school sports team in the county could hope for at South Greene. She has done to the sports program at South Greene what no other county high school could do in athletic events participation, she has destroyed the program. Congratulations are in order for her for a job well done, she must have really hated South Greene when she was an athlete at GHS.

Lets be honest with ourselves and take a good look at this. For the lst 6 years the feeder schools for South Greene have been awful at best with the exception of last year at Debusk in football. Before that they were awful and no offense but was coached by a lady for a couple of years. Camp Creek was coached a few years by Bandy Thompson for gods sake and have used 5th graders to fill their team. The coach at Nolichucky throws the ball all the time and runs no resemblance of anything South Greene does. Glenwood has 14 players this year after not having a team for a couple of years.. Now to this years squad they have a few athletes the Waddell kid who unfortunately got hurt the Shufflers kid, Lightfoot is ok. Their line is slow and not very strong therefor can't hold blocks, their linebackers give good effort but are definitely undersized, their secondary is scared to hit anybody just to name a few. You mix this with some questionable coaching and it adds up to disaster. Game 1 they had 4 turnovers and lost, Game 2 they had 4 turnovers and also dropped right in the hands a touchdown with less than 3 minutes to go in game to win game, Game 3 they played without 1 of their 2 best players and once again turned it over. I am neither a fan or a critic of the coach but I am a realist. The truth is our feeder programs are lacking, we really don't have as many athletes like we used to and no Coach Jones isn't Coach Ricker. But in no way can you put all the blame on the coach,he hasn't missed a tackle or block, hasn't turned the ball over, dropped a pass. We're jut not very good were not very fast or very strong and for us to get better we have to change our feeder programs and we have to work a lot harder than we are in the weight room all year round.

First, if you are Truthspeaker then I am definitely your opposite. Coach Jones on numerous occasions has gotten penalties which have hurt his team, so he is part of the problem. In the last game he called a timeout with a minute and a half left in the 1st half and the team was on their own 20, 3rd down and 10 to go. That kind of decision making can hurt your team bad, fortunately this time it did not hurt the team. Late in the game he made the worst decision of all when he chose to go for it on 4th and 5 from around the 50 yard line, failed to pick it up, gave up field position and the opposing team scored the winning touchdown. Give me a break about feeder schools, the last team which beat them is using home schoolers to get to 16 athletes, they beat South Greene with 3 good athletes, 1, 4 and 11 and a QB who did not hurt his team. Their coaching was far superior. I will add 38 was a good kicker who hit a 48 yard field goal, but Jones again had an opportunity to send his kicker in to win the game at a much shorter distance and decided not to. He has two kickers, I would have at least given one of them a try. He is coach, of course he knows best.

Like I said no doubt part of the problem lies with coaching mistakes but to say its all his fault like you are trying to do in your whole post is mistaken. You obviously don't want to analyze the whole program or find that improvements need to be made in other places. Let me put it this way. Whoever in your opinion is the best coach around couldn't win 4 games out there this year. Now go ahead and continue to lay all the blame in one place and in 10 years after their is a new coach unless they are willing to make some changes for these players leading up to high school and in the offseason conditioning then you will see the same results. This is just my opinion I would love to see SG win every game.
