I agree, Bowlin and the UC bunch of so called educators are whimps. they see children away so they can keep their numbers down. That way they can play in an easier division. They have no concern for what they are there for. They aren't worthy to play against Obion County.

Yea the rumors they started about oc coaches died out so they had to turn to a different tactic. Shameful.

Why would UC give up the opportunity to make a huge profit at the gate and concessions by refusing to play OC in football. Who cares who wins the game. Just think about money that game generates for the sports dept. at both schools.

OC schools are on the decline in enrollment, while UC and surrounding schools are on the ascendancy. This is due to OC's poor academic curriculum and OC's trashing American freedom with forced pee tests. UC and Dyersburg have AP; OC merely has dual credit.

You do the math.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that the OC Coaches are going into the houses of the UC players and recruiting them to play at OC?
Mmmm. Now I would be pissed too if I had spent time coaching my kids and right at their peak, another coach bribed them away from me. I just hope that they can deliver all those scholarships that they are promising out to these kids to make the switch from UC to OC.
Just something to ponder.

Last time I checked UC put in freshmen and that's when OC finally scored... OC did have their best in and still lost.

coaches throwing drink and dope parties for high school kids, coaches threatening teachers to pass their players in class or they won't have a job, dismissing school rules just because the star player can do whatever the hell they want too. Lying to kids from what school system to get them to come to another school system..
Nah, we're all clueless on why this happened. LMAO!

This predominately, perennial, pigskin rivalry sells more tickets than just another innocuous, ill-attended, itinerant 1A matchup.(and papers too!)

If it was a team that never had a chance to beat uc there would be no doubt at all that they would play year in and year out. They lost 7 times to oc in their last 11 meetings. To many uc fans that is unacceptable because snobs cant stand losing to rednecks. If Bowling doesnt want to play oc because of moral issues about the oc coaches then I find that very hard to believe. Does he ivestigate all of the coach's life styles that he has on his schedule? He knew that he could take oc this year but he knows he cant for the next few years and thats the real reason why they wont play in the future. When oc had uc down by 36pts last year Jackson put his subs in with 11 mins left in the 3rd quarter and never scored again. Bowling was still onside kicking and throwing the ball late in the 4th with a big lead with his starters. Its just like when they chickened out in basketball for a few years until they got 2 all-americans and then it was game time. The same thing will happen in football. Im glad Bowling has high morals and would never try to run the score up on a bunch of kids to settle personal issues with Jackson. lol They would play Mayfield but they couldnt use the excuse of being a smaller school after they lost and I heard one of Mayfield's coaches might have gotten a speeding ticket so they are morally unstable. lol

Bowlin is no saint and doesn't always have the kids best interest in mind. Ask the kid from oc he took with him to dyersburg several years ago.

You people need to get over it, they are not playing for the sole reason of one assistant basketball coach at OC. When he is gone they will play again. As for the so-called transfers from SF and Ridgemont, their parent lives in UC and the others came for the education (them playing football was just a bonus). Both teams can pick up games next season that would bring in just as much $$$. I have heard that OC in picking up Milan (good luck with that one) and they travel well. UC could pick up Westview and have just as big of a gate. And from what the Messenger Football edition had in it, from my perspective Coach Jackson is already looking for a way out. He wants Field Turf put on the field, and if he does not get it then he is gone. That does not look good because what system would spend that kind of $$$ on a program that has only 2 or 3 postseason wins in school history...
