    4A #4 Franklin-Simpson vs. 2A Metcalfe County

    It's an unexpected battle of unbeatens when the Metcalfe County Hornets travel to take on the 4th ranked Franklin-Simpson Wildcats. Franklin-Simpson enters off of an impressive, albeit truncated win over Caldwell County, a 14-6 decision that was called at the half. But that they're 2-0 isn't unthinkable. Metcalfe County, on the other hand, won only two games last season. The Hornets have not started 2-0 since 2007's state semifinal run, and in fact had not won either of their first two games since 2008. Chances are that the Wildcats will reintroduce them to the loss column, but what say you?

    I like Franklin Simpson big in this game at home. But I do like that Metcalfe is having a good year and hope they continue to do well in 2A.

    Homecoming for FS this week. Gotta be as early a homecoming game as I can remember. Sometimes it can be a distraction, but I think the Cats have too much talent for Metcalfe to handle. I'll say FS 48-6.

    If FS plays their game they will be fine. If they get to caught up in homecoming, a huge system-wide week long party, they could be in some trouble.
    I trust that the staff will have them focused and we will see a Homcoming win and the a great concert at the Stadium by The Jimmy Church Band.

    Metcalfe only has around 25 players. They have a very good QB and solid and a solid ball club, but I think the numbers hurt them and FS rolls to a big win.

    I look forward to keeping up with Metcalfe this year, unfortunately this week they are up against a very strong Franklin team. Hope for both teams to stay healthy and continue to have a great season.

    Last year's game at Edmonton had a large point spread but the Metcalfe kids scrapped and battled every minute of the game. Probably took a trip down to Dumas Walker for a bottle of Ski and talked about the licks they laid them Franklin boys.

    Did they have a slawburger and fries with that Ski?

    Ironic that I went through Moss, TN today. Never had been there.

    I did not see the slaw burger home. .
