Page 5 of I think since both teams had pretty easy wins this week, then it is fair to go ahead and start this thread. Any thoughts or predictions?... 185 comments | 3017 Views | Go to page 1 →

    It's funny,
    I keep hearing Belfry fans talk about "the last five years" and "since 2001" and on and on.

    These are not the kinds of things I'd expect from Belfry folks.

    I have always heard that a team takes on the coach's personality and I think the Belfry team has....Class
    Coach Haywood and staff always display tremendous class.

    It's too bad some of the class around the program hasn't made it to everyone.

    I would guarantee the players and coaches aren't gloating about games in years past.

    Pikeville has its fair share of fans who act the same way, every team does, you are singling out people who are gloating, I havent gloated once, refer to post 78 and you shall see I think it will be a dogfight!

    I didn't single out anyone.
    I just made a statement.

    You felt the need to respond, why do you feel the need to defend your posts???

    Good luck to both teams!!

    Why do you feel the need to post something talking about the Belfry fans referning to the last 5 years. The proof is on the field, and thats where those last 5 (W's) came from, not a message board or some gloating fans on BGP!

    Class????

    How about saying, "you know what, you guys have beaten us the last 5 years, and maybe we'll change that Friday night"?

    Instead, your only remarks are that it is classless for us to bring up the record during the last 5 years. If stating the obvious, the truth, the record, the bottom line, or any of the above is classless, then so be it.

    But I think its childish if you can't take a little ribbing about the team's records this century, or Belfry's overall lead in the series.

    If you can't, what's the use in calling the Belfry vs Pikeville game a heated rivalry anyway?

    A little starter course for those who have no recollection of any football played before 2001.

    Yes I have to agree it was a "Great entertainment value" these last 5 years. That 25 bucks I paid at the gate for these last 5 Pirate victories was well worth every penny! And hopefully billyrayjoebob we will keep 'em coming!

    Boy, I'm glad most Belfry fans are as Classy as their team and coach not like others who must have moved in, transferred in, or swam the river and now are hangers on.

    Why fuss amongst fan bases? When it's all said and done...the best team has usually won in this series. Pikeville controlled the 80's...Both teams split the 90's and Belfry has dominated the series over the past 5 years. It all comes out in the wash. Both fan bases have tremendous programs to cheer for...and IMO, both fan bases truly respect both programs. Pikeville and Belfry have ALWAYS REPRESENTED PIKE CO AND THE MOUNTAINS WITH CLASS. We can argue programs until the cows come home...but the bottom line is that both are tremendous and well represented.

    Friday's game will be another smash mouth classic....Belfry's terrific trio vs. Pikeville's Man child (Harmon). Sit back and enjoy it......because life's too short not to.

    Great post. BUT, Pikeville brings a lot more than Harmon to the table. It isn't Harmon vs. trio...

    What does Pikeville have? I am really interested in what they have this year, we hear alot about Harmon, and we know about Mayo, I was hoping he would make it back for this game, but seriously give us a breakdown of what we can expect come friday?

    Believe me....I know Pikeville has alot more than Harmon....but IMO, he makes everyone else better....and Belfry will need to neutralize him and make Pikeville utilize their other weapons. Harmon is a dangerous 1st down back...that is consistently averaging 4-7 yds on 1st down plays. When he does that..Pikeville is very dangerous, because of their supporting cast. However, if you can contain Harmon on 1st--then you're forced into situations that will play into Belfry's strengths. So, controlling the LOS is the single biggest thing to watch IMO...because that'll dicate what direction P-ville goes in.

    Rowe, Bryant, Shurtleff, Gibson, Tibbs, Walker, Elliott, to name a few. Their size/strength as a whole has nearly doubled since last year. They are ALL juniors and seniors with much experience, and they will determine the outcome of this game at the LOS! I'll bet you people will change your tunes about these boys being "pushed around because they are so small". It simply ain't gonna happen.

    I suppose I am "the fan" who is saying Belfry will win in a cake walk.

    I believe I said that Belfry could play a "somewhat sloppy" game and WIN (not win in a cakewalk!)

    What is my definition of somewhat sloppy? Putting the ball on the ground several times, kinda like we did against E-Town in 03 when we fumbled 8 times and lost 4.

    I am certainly not saying Pikeville doesn't have a solid team who will compete, but I just think Belfry is better and has been better, especially on the LOS for several years past. I think its a trend that bares mentioning. As far as those who thinks its "classless" to mention the 5 in a row, I do so BECAUSE this is a rivarly game! I do the same thing to Prestonsburg every year after we beat them. I guess I consider Pikeville and Prestonsburg "big boy" programs who can handle this. You won't hear me calling out East Ridge or Magoffin Co. about Belfry's winning streak over them.

    As far as I'm concerned, "class" can be maintained without having to say "Good luck to both team! Yay for football"

    Whatever.

    If Belfry puts it on the ground 8 times they will not win this game.
