I've sat here for alot of years and watched these 2 schools bicker back and forth. If we want our kids to grow and succeed, we need to consoldiate. Forget all the old arguments and hard feelings. Circulate a petition. Force YOUR school boards to put it on the ballot. It is 2009, for heaven's sake...United We Stand.

Consolidation cuts jobs and creates larger classes. Neither have proven to make better schools. There are plenty of youth from our area suceeding from both schools.

Please people this doesn't even matter now! We don't play each other anymore. Hoxie is a 3a Walnut Ridge is a 2a. I am a Hoxie fan, but I will support my twin city school in their games also.

Oh how quickly we forget. I went to school at Hoxie in the 70's and the football team was so bad they rarely ever won a game. It was about "20" long years before Hoxie ever won a game against Walnut Ridge!! It was really sad. And I remember very well when Terry Wicker and Miles Johnson left and went to Walnut Ridge so they could play for a winning team. They thought they were "jocks" back then, you know how it is with the "cool people". What a joke, Wicker was a pretty good player and thought he was a ladies man. There was nothing good looking about him but as always it was "who you were". And poor little roly poly Miles Johnson thought he was hott too. The Hoxie boys hated them for their betrayal. It all sounds so stupid now. But back to the matter of winning and losing. It never pays to get too cocky because the tables could turn again at some point and Hoxie could be back on the bottom. I hear things are going downhill at Hoxie again and that WR is growing. There was rivalry back then but it was a lot of fun. It is a shame they don't play each other anymore.

You are right about that! I graduated in the late 70's and when I left we still had not won a game against ya'll. I moved away years ago and haven't kept up, but what year did Hoixe finally beat WR? Was it in the 90's?

Bobcats don't need JOCKS or attitudes, just more new students, athletes and friends.

Yes they did, and so many people know that it isn't the first time they have pulled that. Back in the 70's-80's you wouldn't have been able to dynamite a SHRABLE out of WR schools. You can bet he didn't spend one day or night in that run down trailer. The school wants to claim they have to adhere to the strict rules and regulations of the AAA. As others have said, there are so many ways around those so called strict rules.

The only way to ever settle this is if Hoxie and WR play each other again. End of argument. We should be begging for the rivalry to be brought back, it was good for the kids idc how many fights there were that's part of Amy teenage game. Look at Paragould and GCT, HUGE game they still play it why can't we have ours back? Ppl need to stop crying about who went where and why Shrable is graduated made all state and all start team but he's gone, move on people and let these two schools fight for the Iron Mountain again.

I hope Crisler brings all his coaching success to Walnut Ridge that he achieved in Hoxie.

Each school should take pride in their athletic programs and school spirit. Of course it always feels better when your school is WINNING but we have to be supportive of our teams when they lose. There were many years before Hoxie ever won a football game aganist us. And when they did achieve that first victory against us, it was an exciting time. That win made everything even more competitive and the rivalry was fun. Sure some carried it a bit too far, but for the most part it was all in good fun. I miss the innocence of those days and wish my grandchildren could grow up with the excitement of playing the team just across town. But whatever the case may be, we need to remember IT IS high school football. As adults we need to show these kids that we have self restraint and that they need to do the same. Too many times adults lose their cool long before the kids do. Let's wish Hoxie the best with their games in the next season, just as we are hoping for a great new year of sports for our school. There is absolutely no reason for ill will against each other in these two neighboring towns.

Shame on the adults who are getting on here bad mouthing these boys. I am a BOBCAT and proud of it and I am proud of the students that came to WR because Coach Crisler came. WR does not have to play Hoxie to prove who is best. Let's see who go farthest in the play offs this year. I along with many other WR fans welcome any and all who want to join our team. And the majority of the students at WR are happy to have new faces on campus.

Would rather have Treadway for a coach than the worthless piece of sh!t of a PERSON and COACH that Sears is. Of course most coaches would NOT let a kid or kids play that go to jail the night before a game or one that BEATS Elderly people!!!! What a joke for a coach and a person he is. Real positive ROLE MODEL. No wonder everyone wants out of Hoxie.

It doesnt matter who goes further in the play offs between these two schools. Hoxie is a 3A school that means they play much better teams than Walnut Ridge. I would think that yall would have realized that by now. Hoxie has alot harder schedule than WR. When WR becomes a 3A and plays talented teams they can compare records and have something to brag about. I wish both schools luck!
