  1. Ole Miss wins the World Series keeping the title in the SEC and the state of Mississippi.
  2. Mayfield, for the first time in 3 years, finally has a team that has the chance to be very relevant in the title talk. A few uncertains are out there, we lost alot of housing from the tornado but hopefully we retain everyone. Im excited about out LB group the most. I expect the QB play to be pretty good and we have a RB that is one of the best we have had in a long time. THE WR's will be a good group. The group I wish I knew more about is the line play. I have heard they should be pretty good but I will have to find out more to know how I feel about that group.
  3. Good hire for the Racers and he is familar with the area the MVC is prominent in
  4. That's about all I know to say right there, we assume the media is getting it right.
  5. I would like to announce that the new Head Football Coach at Mayfield is Joe Morris. Morris was a ununanimous choice by the school board and he brings a very impressive resume. Morris was also named as the new AD. I think they made a good choice and the program should be in good hands. 🤣
  6. I have been hearing Jonathan Smith over here for Cracken. No idea if there is any validity to it though.
  7. Would love to see the Racers take out St Pete for the Cats. Way to go Racers!!!
  8. Maybe it will be Don Shula or John Madding!
  9. I told snake that I could have sworn I type "in Dew time" and thought the auto correct got it. It's all good Colonel. 😄
  10. In due time it will be told to the public.
  11. I have not got words to express the gratitude from us all, thank you!
  12. Just to add a little more drama for you guys, his wife is from Milan and his cousin Jeff was the long time head football coach at Milan until a couple years ago when he retired. Lots of family ties there and a traditional TN contender that is only about an hour from Mayfield. Give Joe a chance and it will all come out in the wash and it will all be fine.
  13. To expand on my previous comments, as Deuce said, I am speaking of Mayfield. 64 kids are without a place to live as of now I was told yesterday. Not as bad as I thought but still very significant.
  14. I can't help but wonder what kind of team we will field next year. All the physical componets were undamaged but there will be some families forced to move to other places to find housing and jobs for parents. We lost some of our residential neighborhoods inside the city. Some of our kids maybe living and playing at other schools. Football is not longer even important now.
  15. I tried to send this from my phone but service is iffy to say the least. I went to get water at Mayfield High School and when I got there several of the volunteers said we have somthing you may want, Beechwood water. They led me to pallets of water taken off a BW trucks. First off I needed water bad and 2nd ot was BW water which held higher meaning to me. Thanks to any and all of my friends who up there, it is greatly needed and appreciated. While I was getting my BW water several trucks labeled Franklin Simpson Football pulled up with former FS Head Coach Timmy Schlosser in the lead truck.
  16. I just wanted to check in and tell all on here that my family and self all are safe and learning how to cope with the day to day to day challenges this diaster presents. We had a generator from the go and that has made our quality of life much better than it has for many. Not a whole home gen but a 7,000 kw one that backfeeds into our electric box once you throw the electric main. We were also fortunate being a few blocks out of the debris field so while we had damage, that damage is nothing like what you are seeing on tv. Our biggest challenge is drinking water and water to flush the toilets. The tornado knocked out 2 of the cities water towers, the water plant and sewage plant. The other big issue for me is keeping gas for the genset but a couple stations are now up and pumping gas with generators. Support at all levels has been mind bending. Water and all other essential supplies have started pouring in from communities far and near like the help from Ft. Mitchell and Ft. Thomas, and local communities like Paducah and Murray. Schools like Beecchwood and Tilghman, Highlands and UK, Murray and U of L, ect. There are also many out of state folks here helping from all over the nation. The national guard and arm forces, there are more soilders down here right now than at Ft. Canpbell. They dug 2 massive wells in 4 days and are back today in a attempt to get water flowing again. There are utility companies from all over the US that have sent crews and FEMA is air flighting generators for people non stop and said they could get 3,500 generators here. The airplanes comming and going bringing in supplies is non stop. The roadways are full with convoys of humvees and heavy equipment. The federal response from FEMA and relief organizations is huge. I tried to get food yesterday and not a single restaurant will take your money and they will give you as much as you want. National food chains to out of town food trucks are everywhere and not a single one will take your money. There are more food choices here right now than we have every even had and they are mobile, like Chick-fil-A, ect. This is a horrible tragedy and it will have us down for a long time but the good is everywhere here in they recovery effort. Thank all you for your prayers and to the many that have provided help in otherways.
  17. None of us have internet or power here so getting to post on here depends on getting a cell post out and I’m guessing the system is overwhelmed right now so it’s not that we don’t want to but more that we can’t. I got the Beechwood letter from JAson Buc tonight and it moved me to tears. I wanted to tell all of you all who have posted and done for us how appreciative we are and thank you all. God Bless you all. Football seems so small right now.
  18. I live by the school and it was spared for the most part and is a shelter for now
  19. My family and myself are all safe but some are not. The deathtole is comming. Thanks for all the concerns. Please pray for us. My house had light damage but 4 blocks North is where the debris field starts. I lost a window a tree limb and a fence. 4 Blocks up is undescribable, pics will get out soon. We have no power or water. I have a genset. so I am a lucky one but the water issue and gas is hard to get. A friend in E Prairie, MO is bringing both and I just heard that the state is sending water.
  20. Slow, not at all, they are quick, I would question the Beechwood game as well, they were out manned and laid an egg. I've seen every game every year and alot of the main competitions games on film and would not get caught up in judgement from 1 game. Just look at Herogat's game with Mayfield for example vs Mayfield in 2019. From that game he looked very average. The last 2 years was no suprise for anyone who is a avid follower and the progression to get back to the top would be right where one would expect. If Cartwright can continue to improve, outside the egg vs Beechwood he was pretty good, look at his stats, it will give us the pass and run punch that we have not had the last 2 years and he has the RB in Starks who will be one of the best backs in the state. Looking at what the other big 2 lost to graduation and what I think we have back is why I draw my conclusion. While I am certainly only a armchair QB and its only my opinion, but I have been evaluating with a decent degree of accuracy for the last 30 years. I may be off and certainly I am biased pro Mayfield. Being a armchair QB I can always change my tune if its not going my way.
