Increased population. Get rid of the good ol boy history of TN players and coaches and go to nut cutting programs like our neighbors all around us do. Stop taking the players to DQ after getting beat and expect more out of the players that are in this state. The top programs in this state don't care who you are. They care about whether or not you produce or not. If you do, you play. If you don't, then you get cut. No hard feelings. Nothing personal. Just business. TN is full of good ol boy players and coaches. Not all of them but a lot of them.

There's no good ole boy system when it comes to football. If you're upset because you were always picked last in dodgeball, and never got to start on the football team, it's probably because you sucked.

Everyone of you are smart enough to realize that the OP named the 3 most populated states in America, and then asked why we don't produce as much talent as they do, correct?

The state's talent is underrated. The population argument is a loser. If that was the case please explain why our neighboring states of Alabama and Mississippi produce more top talent every year.

Folks - it involves the emphasis and orientation of the kids to the sport at an earlier an age. The major states start younger with organized leagues throughout their states - not just in a couple of cities/areas. Most all of them have state sanctioned middle school programs in every school that can field a team. The S&C programs start quicker and by the time they are in HS they are well on their way to meeting their full potential.

Mississippi and Alabama don't put out much talent...not saying that they don't put out more than Tennessee but overall they're not one of the top states that produces

But I agree with you to a certain extent....I think it's a mixture of population and emphasis on football

Examples being Tennessee and New York...emphasis is there with Tennessee but not the population...population is there with New York but not the emphasis
