OK I keep hearing that they stomped the Falcon at mid field. They were not told to go stomp the Falcon. What actually happened was Fulton was at mid field jumping around getting pumped up and GHS then began jumping around in a circle, as they do at every game,getting pumped up as well. People try to create issues when there were none.
Do I feel bad for them? Yes I feel bad that all of their hard work did not pay off with a State Championship win. I also felt bad for South Greene when their girls volleyball team didn't win the state championship. We all need to be proud that GHS made it as far as they did. What they did have is 2 playoff games at home. What that did was bring visitors to our town to spend their money on food, gas, etc. Be happy about that.

No I don't fell sorry for them. Lets be honest they moved down to the division there in a few years ago because they were getting there ass kicked so they moved down to play schools with less kids because they knew they would be able to win. The state titles they won are a joke. How does anyone brag about winning a title after they moved down in division that would be like Bama moving down to play Carson Newman and braging about betting them. That school is a joke and the parents are to blame. Everone wants to look away at the tack that they are the only school that get money for anything while the other schools struggle.

So you obviously have a problem with South Greene moving down this year too? I mean they moved down to play schools with less kids because they can beat them. Same thing right?

you goober..... Greeneville is supposed to play in this conference because of the number of students they have. In case you were not around back in the days .... South Green has some pretty good teams and was always moaning that Greeneville wouldn't play them cause they would have gotten beat. I think Greeneville started playing them in the early 80's and beat them pretty good. South Green did beat Greeneville one year,,,, but a year or 2 later.... South Greene didn't want any more. I am pulling this from memory because I don't want to spend the time to look up dates, scores, ect.

You are an idiot. Greeneville did not move down because they were "getting THEIR asses kicked". They were put (yes, put, as in placed) where they are based on THEIR enrollment. Pull up their records on WWW.greenevillefootbal.com . You will see they weren't getting their asses kicked.

It's not like any of the county teams were conference champions on a regular basis before Greeneville had to drop down. Who'd y'all whine about then?

SENSELESS SCHOOL SPORTS DRAMA.

Sorry your lives are so pathetic you have to live through your children and insult other adults over the outcome of SCHOOL GAMES.

Good job ADULTS. I sure hope these players don't come here and think this is actually how adults in their community are SUPPOSED to behave.

Here are the facts:

Greeneville DID choose to drop down to their current classification.
Greeneville DID choose to play up a classification in previous years.

Greeneville was placed into their district by the TSSAA AFTER they chose to drop into the classification instead of continuing to play up.
Greeneville wanted to be placed into the district that includes teams further Northeast.

The football coach at the time WANTED to drop down.
The boys basketball coach at the time DID NOT WANT to drop down.

Several athletes at Greeneville are supposed to go to county schools.
Several athletes at all county high school are supposed to go to other county high schools.

A higher number of athletes who are supposed to go to county high schools choose to go to Greeneville than those who are supposed to go to Greeneville choose to go to county high schools.

All high schools have coaches who try to promote their program in a way that attracts talent from outside.
Greeneville promotes their programs in a way that attracts talent from outside, but when you have coaches from middle schools speaking to athletes from outside their schools, that is not allowed. They are acting as an agent of the high school when they do, if they are trying to influence kids to go somewhere to a high school. Coaches at GMS are also breaking TMSAA rules when they do so. If they donít openly recruit some students, they do a bad job at making sure that kids who switch schools donít say they were recruited.

Every high school wants to get into that place where they are attracting that outside talent.
Greeneville is attracting that talent in football, but their other sports are generally down from where they would like.

If I didn't know better.... it sounds like you are describing Larry Ricker ..... South Greenes old basketball coach. But he passed a few years ago.

Why would a person feel sorry for them? They played and lost a football game. They had a very good season and lost to a team that will probably win the state championship. Why the bitterness towards them? I have no affiliation with the school but am proud that a local team had a season as good as they did. Just as I was proud of North Greene's girls when they played for the state championship in basketball or the south Greene girls when they did the same in volleyball. Just as I would be if any local team had a great season. It's immature bullshit like this that needs to stop.
I agree. I support any team from our region. I really think it is just pure jealousy and very childish behavior the way some despise GHS.

GHS stepped down so that they could beat the piss out of county schools with their recruited talent. It's the "rich getting richer" attitudes and the " need for greed" parents of GHS students whom have created this poor showmanship their children show. It's a damn shame but it is the way of this world it seems. I do not revel in the fact that they were beat last night. I feel worse because these children are being brought up to believe that stomping on the little man and money can get you anywhere are the key factors in life. Money and bullying do not equal success! The Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to success!
Why would u lump all ghs parents and kids together saying things like"rich getting richer"? You apparently are unaware and/or misinformed of the fact that they are many students who attend ghs that are not rich. You sound like another jealous person then want to try to make your post sound ok bc you end with religion. Come on....really?
