J Reel and the board are too smart to let that happen. Too much risk. Too much liability. Trust me, it will NEVER happen.

who="pville parent"]J Reel and the board - this in itself is a funny term. That shows the problem. The board and coach are on it together? Trust me with what is getting ready to happen this might not be the tight relationship you think. Also, reel has done a good job but if he can't right the ship see who has to take the blame.

I graduated in 2012 I haven't got a son on the team. I do have a few brothers on the team though. If you actually cared about the team you should've watched a few middle school games. I'm not going to post a minor's name.
People will just have to grasp the fact that seniors of '12 had the best team in a long time. We accomplished more than anyone expected, and overcame great adversity. And im with "dino" on this one lol -turbotitties

The coaches, principal, and superintendent should all be ashamed of themselves tonight. Our kids just got embarrassed. They did not just get beat, they were embarrassed. There is no excuse for something like that. Our children looked like a middle school out there. Then they wouldn't even let them come off the field when Signal started playing their 2nd and 3rd team. No wonder 2 really good freshman are playing for other schools. It is not the kids fault that they were not ready, I thought we had people being paid just like Signal does. I am just heart broken for our kids.

Bledsoe never has and never will be a "Football Powerhouse" we don't have the selection of athletes other counties do!

That is just not true. Last nite our kids got embarrassed by a school with no more students than we have. They just went out when they were going to start a program and hired a team of coaches that know how to win and had always won. True Bledsoe has never been a "power house" but we have won here at times. I was in school here when we won the district in 81 then turned around and did it again in 83. AND that was when there were only 3 levels of schools and private schools played with us too. Our children deserve better!

I live in Dunlap and we support the Indians. We all know that Signal Mountain brings in boys from all over. They hand pick some of the best players. It should not be allowed and is not fair to the teams they play. Tell your boys they have nothing to be ashamed of.

So we are just to say its OK to get run off the field? NO way! That is like saying well at least we beat Crossville. That is worse. Maybe I should say at least you don't play for Dunlap. I don't think it is ever OK to just accept things like that. The fact is the kids that care at all were embarrassed and that is not OK. I will say it again, Bledsoe won 2 district championships in 3 years when there were only 3 levels and the private schools played in them 2. The difference is other places have advanced and taken the things their kids are involved in seriously and it is obvious that the Bledsoe county has not. I will say it to anyone again, the coaches, superintendent and principal should be ashamed of themselves!

Just face it. Bledsoe is not that good this year! They barely beat a Cumberland county in a sloppy game neither deserved to win! It's Football just like life it's not easy and sometimes you really get beat bad! Look at the sidelines for Godsake! There are only a few of the boys that really care enough too work hard throughout the year too prepare for a winning team. The majority of them are lazy and just standing on the sidelines for the fame and glory. It's Bledsoe people Not Signal mountain, Tyner, South Pitts or any other famed football school!

I posted my post to take up for your boys. I hope you do realize that. I know on the field we both want to win when we play each other. But I hope you know we do not like and want to see your boys beaten in the ground by Signal Mountain. They pull in players from all over. Their team is hand picked. We play our boys from our counties. Do you not remember all the trouble they have been in???

Hey football,
Yeah I realize what you were saying and yes I know they got into some trouble. However, we still have to play them and no matter what they do, it still does not give our staff and administration an excuse for putting our kids out there and letting them get embarrassed. AND trust me they were.
Get over it, I agree that we barely beat a bad Crossville team and I have looked at the sidelines. You are right, many of them don't look like they have even seen a weight room. Is that not the coaches fault? Why don't they make kids work out? The coaches are paid a supplement and I don't know how much it is (probably not much) but they took the jobs and they should be making the kids work out and be ready. I don't doubt our some of our kids are lazy, but that does not give the staff an excuse for not having them ready to play against any team out there. It is NEVER ok to just accept being 2nd rate.

Last Friday night BCHS was beaten 48-0 by SIGNAL but the fans stayed with the team until the end.Now one thing that is important is that they stayed did not turn their backs on them unlike some people who reguraly zing the team coaches now how many of those main street QBs actually go to games answer me that.

I am no football expert by any means but I think what is happening to our school and town should be no suprise. When you have a disfunctional Little Blue and middle school people in charge. Then lose people like Onsbey and Mr. Harwood as AD, things suffer.
