    Wow, what intensity.

    Guru, I think you have some unsolved issues with Mayfield. You don't seem to want to give them the credit they deserve. For any of their teams. The 95' team was better than Beechwood. Not saying the tigers were bad, they were a good team, however Mayfield was better.As far as the 98' team against Middlesboro, the Yellowjackets were a better team. They, in my opinion, were severly underated that season. When we saw we were playing them we did not know who they were. They sure showed us who they were. In 93'', my senior year, we beat a strong p-burg team that had our # all game. We found a way to win because we had complete team, poor ole p-burg did not have a good kicking game and it cost them the state title.

    Now I have a question for those of you who were at the 94' state title game. I heard that the Beechwood QB threw the ball in the air as the time expired and a Murray defender caught it in the end zone. The officials called it a safety when it was accually a touchdown, that would have given Murray the win. That is what I heard. Now please no Beechwood fans answer because YOU ARE BIASED. Only people who were not fans of either team shoud answer unless you can be completely objective. I am not saying this is the truth, just what I heard. I would like to hear the truth.
    I still think that Beechwood was better than Murray, a whole lot better. Murray just had an unbelieveable game.

    Hop-town beating the 95' team was a fluke. Mayfield was the better team as they were in every game they played that year. Hop-town had a tremendous team and we thought for sure they would be playing for a state title. But the Mayfield team that beat that East ST. Louis team had to be the best ever.

    Unsolved issues? I voice my opinion about a couple of football teams and I have unsolved issues? LOL, I have not gotten personal with anyone and I expect the same treatment.

    You are missing the point, I am not tearing down Mayfield I am building up a couple of other teams since this thread is so lopsided with Pro Mayfield posters. Mayfield has had a lot of very talented teams. The only thing I feel strong about in this thread is that the 98 Middlesboro team was one of the best ever and if they surprised anyone then shame on you because they had a great year in 97 and everyone should have known about them.

    Now on to the Beechwood/Murray game. Yes, the QB threw the ball up and a defender from Murray caught the ball but somewhere in the mix the ref blew the whistle causing the play to be dead which awarded Murray a safety. I think it was an inadvertent whistle that awarded Murray the safety prior to QB throwing the ball in the air. In other words, maybe the ref was wrong to blow the whistle when he did but by rule the refs were correct in awarding Murray a safety and not a touchdown. Also, if that is all your friends told you they are misleading you as to the events.

    GURU,
    thats not all I heard, but thats all I was not sure about, thank you for giving me another side to the story.

    As for your comment about there being a lot of "PRO-MAYFIELD posters", of course there are. The thread is Best Mayfield team ever, not best Mayfield team to lose to your favorite and why is your team better. It is a PRO-MAYFIELD thread. You simply down graded everything good anyone said about the Cards, and that is how I saw it. I am not perfect by any means but I am not the only one here to see that :ie:westsider"you seem to have a grudge against the Cards". What you said was taken to be offensive to Mayfield. At least by me. You may not or you may hate them, all the same I wish the best of luck to your team, the Beechwood Tigers, in the rest of their seson and If they meet us in the finals may the best team win.(if we both get that far.)

    If you would have read what I said you would have noticed that I said the 98' Middlesboro team was better than Mayfield that year. You desperetly need to read the posts in their entirety before you make remarks.

    I think we have a few people that are over reacting to what is being said. I can honestly say from posting with the Guru for several years that he has no grudge with Mayfield and has actually be very pro Mayfield at times. the Guru's account of what happened in the Murray game is dead on. Had there been no inadvertent whistle Murray would have had a TD but the correct call was made though that was a terrible mistake by the official that blew the early whistle. Beechwoods QB made a terrible decision, he could have just taken a knee and Beechwood would have won the game without any of the controversy.

    SEBELL my friend, I no you dont like my take on the 98 game and it seems that I am the only person that feels that way but I do and thats that. I knew once I had decided to post my feelings on that game that I would be taking some heat and rightfully so. As for how can you overlook anyone in a title game, I cant answer that for sure but you must also remember that we have been to alot more title games than MIddlesboro (12 in the past 25 years) that is making an appearance on average of once ever 2.08 years. You have been 1 time so the experinces for us are a little different. I will say it would be great to meet the Jackets on the carpet this year for a little revenge.

    Once again we aint talking about in the last 25 years,we are talking about 1998.and the best team won that year,and before you wanna say middlesboro has only been to 1 you need to look again..they have been to 4 my friend
    1998 beat mayfield 27-6
    1975 lost to scott co 22-20
    1974 lost to owensboro 14-7
    1965 lost to hopkinsville 24-6
    and think about this fact scott co is 4A owensboro is 4A hopkinsville is 3A for years we have been playing schools much bigger than we are ,and if we hadent been we would have won lot's more.........

    On the Murray-Beechwood game ...

    Just a weird play all around. The Beechwood QB (can't remember his name) was on the "L" in "Louisville" when he threw the ball up in the air, this after the clock had hit 0:00. One of Murray's LBs (John Bell) caught the ball in the air in the end zone.

    I swear I saw one official signal a touchdown, but many fans I know said he later brought them together to signal a safety. Murray, trailing 18-14 at the time, wanted a TD but the officials ruled it a safety, and the final score was officially 18-16.

    The officials blew the whole play. One blew his whistle after the clock hit 0:00 and the scoreboard horn went off but before the play had been run to completion. After the game, the officials messed up by saying they blew the whistle because the QB was out of bounds, which was totally false.

    Some Murray fans still feel as if they were cheated out of a state title, but the real reason they lost is because they were inside Beechwood's 25 twice in the fourth quarter and came up empty.

    Hope that clears it up ... mesh with your recollection, guru?

    Sorry to get off thread about that ... but someone did ask ...

    Pretty much, but I did not hear the officials say that after the game. I did hear the QB Greg Hergott (went to UK but left for UC once some kid named Couch showed up) say he only threw the ball up because he was out of bounds.

    This would be the perfect time for an official to chime in and give us the rest of the story...

    How can you say that the 95 tream was better than Hoptown?We camne to Mayfield and won on their home field.As for pure athletic ability that was probably the best Hoptown team ever.They went 12-1 that year and lost to Bowling Green in the regional Championship who later won AAA.As for this year's team they are not as good as the 95,or the 00 teams.(Mayfield)

    In 1998, I was at the game against Middlesboro, and honestly it looked like Middlesboro knew what play we were calling on just about every down. I remember that their defense spent as much time in our backfield as our qb...they were incredible! Mayfield is not overwhelmed very often, but that day I felt like we were just that... overwhelmed. We had no answer that day.

    As for 1995... tremendous game. I felt like our defense stepped up in the second half and began to shut down Beechwood's running game. Beechwood's running back (#33) was really good, but we stopped him in the second half. The passing game for Beechwood was awesome that day. We could not stop #44. It seemed like he had 20 catches that day. It was Mayfield's pass defense that almost got them beat that day. Beechwood drove down the field way too easily for their final score at the close of the game. I will say that in the second half, Mayfield began to put alot of pressure on the QB...and that had alot to do with Mayfield getting the victory.

    In1998 we lost to awesome team, and in 1995 we beat an awesome team

    Someone was nice enough to send me this on the Beechwood/Murray game:

    It was an inadvertant whistle while Beechwood had player possession of the ball (that is, the quarterback in the end zone with the ball). Since the whistle had blown and the play was over his throwing the ball in the air was ignored.

    Beechwood had two options--they could take the results of the play or replay the down. The results of the play were what they wanted, a safety. Game over.

    ==========================

    This is me again, consider this, with the above in mind once the Beechwood QB heard the whistle he threw the ball up in the air because he knew the game was over. If he hadn't heard the whistle I assert he would have never thrown the ball up in the air.
