It is time to give some thought to ending the football program at Towns County. After years of winless seasons and scores of life long injuries to our players from the win at all cost attitudes from our coaches, we need to bring an end to it.
The only winning season was bought and paid for with our tax dollars when we "hired a coach" who just happened to have a great QB son. We also brought in a bunch of High paid Gym teachers who we still have on the School payroll. Then we scheduled only teams with losing records that year as we have every year since. Take the Gym Coach money, Hire some PHD's and raise the bar.
My suggestion is to take the money spent on Football coaches and football in general and use it to make Towns County the best school in the state to get an education. Spend the money on academics. Continue to have sport programs that we have enough students to support. Soccer, Lacrosse, Baseball, Golf, Tennis, volleyball, softball, basketball, How about Rowing (we live around a lake) track and field. These are sports that can be played with 10 or less players. If we spent a little money and effort on these programs we could turn out competitive teams.
Not only would this increase the level of education our children receive it would bring work at home families to our area to take advantage of our schools. These high paying Internet based jobs would feed our local economy and help dry up a saturated housing market.
The only down side is the small minded parents who try to live their lives though their children by exposing them to lifelong injury playing for the football team would have to get over it. Instead of saying "My boy plays football" they could learn to say "My boy attends one of the best schools in the state and plans to go on to college" "The play Lacrosse and baseball and actually win games." Our school has many teachers with Masters degrees and PHD's which we in Towns county feel is more important than hiring more Gym class and study hall coaches.
The tide is already turning. There are enough good athletes this year in High School not playing football to put together a team that would probably beat our current team. The problem is, even if they all did play we could not compete in our conference.

On one hand, you may be right. Hiwassee Dam, for instance, doesn't, or didn't, have football. The boys who want to play do so with Murphy HS. On the other hand, TC would probably be competitive IF they played schools with the same size enrollment, which they don't because there aren't any, or many, within travel distance.

In a contest between David and Goliath, the money will always be on Goliath because size DOES matter.

Great post. Right on target. Heard two boys went down Friday night with injuries that will end their playing days. I say take the football money and build a pool. I also heard several PHD's got passed over last year for local idiots. Maybe the new super won't cave to the habits of the past. I know she has a bigger set of stones than the past ones did.

The young kids should not be coached by their relatives. Too many kids that start to play ofter find themselves sitting it out, get disheartened and quit while daddy's boy tries to play. Also, funds need appropriated for kids uniforms, equipment, etc., some parents just can not afford the expense so good players never get a chance. Build from the ground up.

"we 'hired a coach' who"?

"bunch of High paid Gym teachers"?

"Hire some PHD's"?

"The play Lacrosse"?

Hey "Thinker", do you think you're an idiot? Well you are, Dumbo, you clearly are. Give yourself a bunch of "PHD's" in sheer mind-boggling stupidity, Dipstick.

Too Bad

Anyone here catch the game Friday? Towns scored with about 10 seconds remaining to go ahead then kicked off and Copper Basin ran it all the way back to beat them. I felt sorry for the kids. Many were crying on the sidelines. It was not the coaches fault. A couple TC players stood and watched the ball carrier run by them. They were still celebrating the lead and forgot to play the last play.
It is a prime example of not having enough players to field a team. Copper Basin is a horrible team and a small school. Smaller than Towns County I think. Both teams were playing kids both ways. Both teams will be lucky to win another game or a game this year. I do think Towns County has a team scheduled that has not won in several years. That should be a real barn burner. Who can suck the least.
Time to bring an end to TC football. Turn out the lights.

Actually, Basin is about the same size and has WON BEFORE THIS GAME.. I can't say the same for Towns. I think God never even put lights in your head. Get a life and stay off topix with your useless spew of idiotic rants.

The coach is responsible for the actions of the players on the field. If they were not focused he is responsible. If they are not diciplined he is responsible. If he is playing dog tired two way players at the end of a game, while fresh legs are on the sideline he is responsible. If he can't kill 10 seconds on a clock to win a game the team is in big trouble.

Oh you is in trouble now. They is gonna dog pile on you like white on rice. The coach haint to blame. Why he got 5 plays for them boys to learn and thats all run left, run right, interception left, interception right, interception down the middle. Now ifin them boys can get that it haint the coaches fault. Sides they was a celbrating cause thats the first time they have been ahead oops no first time they have scored in what oh say bout two years. A score ought to be considered a win.

Look at it this way, Our boys were the silver medal winners every week. They Placed every week. They were the runner-up. I agree with Thinker it is time to shut the football program down. They play a team next week that has only beaten Towns County over the past few years. They have lost every other game. It should be a real barn burner.

I am just wondering why it is that you people even care? You trash talk these boys and their parents. If you do not have kids on this team, then why does it matter to you?
