Rich, my probelm is not with you. It was the other fool calling Powell the new west knoxville and all that crap, You seem like you have some sense. But I hate Powell, not any person in particular, but the general fanbase. Im at the barbershop last year and Guy comes in wearing a Powell Coaches shirt. Of course, im wearing my Central hat. My barber starts talking high school football and asks me how Centrals looking and what I thought about Cody Blanc. Before I could answer, Powelll guy says" Oh Blanc is decent, but hes nowhere as good as Mobley." He then goes on a rant about how Mobley is the greatest thing since sliced bread, gets a haircut and leaves. Thats why I cant stand Powell, for years they've thought they were better than Central. Couldnt be farther from the truth IMO.

Honestly, I've never had a problem with Central fans until I met you on this board. Your statements about the Powell community and fans is the exact attitude you say you despise about Powell fans. IMO, that seems like a double standard. In every post, you've run your mouth about Central this, Central that and how they are going to kick our butts this year and how the Central teams of old would have knocked Mobley out in the first quarter. I didn't see anyone knocking Central and you came out of the blue bashing Powell. If you don't like the way Powell fans act, you should rise above that instead of stooping to that level. I've lived in Powell since 1991 and right now there is only one family I've seen that fits your description of Powell fans. I'm sure you can think of at least one family in Central that fits that description too. Every team has them. You shouldn't label an entire community because of a bad apple you encountered at a barber shop.

Life is short, don't waste it full of general hatred.

Now about the game, we indeed did it twice which I figured we would based on the previous game. Central is not quite to our level yet, but you have a ton of talent that should be exciting to watch over the next few years. Your FR RB is fun to watch and will be tough to stop. Your QB looks good to. I was really impressed with one of his incompletions last night. He got pressure right in his face and threw an out pattern where only his receiver could get the ball with really tight coverage. It was high and outside where our db had no chance. Unfortunately, your receiver didn't catch it, but that was an awesome throw under pressure and the absolute right decision. His running ability is great too.

Our football website had some interesting stats about the two teams playoff records. You stated previously that Powell historically has been bad and Central has been good. You also commented that Powell wasn't good until the rezoning. However, according to the stats we actually have been evenly matched for a long time.

Powell and Central both have 18 playoff appearances since 1990. Powell has made it 12 consecutive years while this is Central's first since 2006. Powell's record is 24-19 and Central's is 24-19 (includes last nights game). Last night was the first time they've met in the playoffs and we share a nemesis that has beat us the most in the playoffs - Maryville. Central has been to the big dance once whereas Powell has been twice and neither team has a state title.

Thought you would find it interesting how evenly matched our playoff records are.

Interesting stats. Im just going off what I saw when I was in school. From 2000-06 Central beat just about everybody except Maryville. Im just stating the obvivous fact that the team this year is the beginnig of the reemergance of Central football. Next year, we will have the best backfield in East TN and if they all stay healthy, that is a fact. Jeremiah Howard, JuJuan Stintson and Josh Poplar. Our Qb you speak of is X, which is also back. lose one WR and one OL. On D, they lose two LB's but gain one cause Poplar plays LB as well. Everybody else is back. I cant say Powell is on a down slide, but I know they lose more next season than Central does. Ownby is great at running and will be better at throwing next year. Also, lets me say that whoever the idiot is that wont throw the ball to that 6'5 WR yall got needs to be fired. Unless his hands are cinderblocks, he would average 800-1000 yds recieving in that district. Next year, Central is back to 8-9 wins.

LOL - you know he's a freshman, right? He's good but makes freshman mistakes. I've noticed we've been throwing the ball a lot less the last few games, but we did throw it to him several times one game. I'll say next year he will be a big part of the offense.

Powell has been to the playoffs for 12 straight years. Not sure why you think they are suddenly gonna fall off. They've only lost one regular season games in 3 years, that being to Oak Ridge this year.

He supposedly showed the EOC (End of Course) exam to students the day before the test was given. I can't believe he would be that stupid. Also heard he gave them the test and walked out for a while. Don't know which story is true yet. Hope he doesn't get fired. That would seriously suck. He's a good coach and if he goes we probably lose our LB coach Dunn. My son loves Dunn and has learned a ton from him.

If he did that, he deserves it.
