TRIVIA

Charlton County coach Rich McWhorter can become the seventh coach in GHSA history to win five state championships. Who are the six head coaches who have won five or more? (Answer Wednesday)

Answer to Monday’s question: The head coach in the 2013 state finals who won a state championship as a Georgia player in 1988 was Griffin’s Steve Devoursney. He was a player at R.E. Lee, which in 1992 merged with Upson High and became Upson-Lee.

COACH SPEAK

Set the schedule up so a team can win every year before they hit the field. Why even practice? Who did they play last week? caraboo? who? Great accomplishment, but against many weak opponents that no one even have heard of. GHSA, let them trade schedules with Meadowcreek….. won’t be playing JV in the second half of those games…..play in the corky kell maybe…. IDK…. Play a real schedule and you will get some respect….until then….. Looks good in print and on those rings….. but the truth is they just dont play anyone……. Their schedule is a joke.

Hey Commis.. Does your team suck. Asking, because GHSA could not “arrange” for any team to go to the Finals year after year after year. If there’s a weak regular season sked & you make the finals, Lovejoy would be King of Georgia. If you played a weak regular season sked, you’d get exposed in the playoffs, aka Cobb Co schools. Either way, you Lose. Hater.

Also, how then to explain Gwinnett’s DOMINANCE?? They beat up on each other (aka, the SEC) yet, WIN year after year after year.

Help build your community school – Not tear down others that have worked hard to build up theirs.

Makes you look small.

@AAA commisioner if we play easy teams during the season, then we have a lessor chance of getting hurt.

Give US one opponent that CAN TEST THE GREENGOLDWOLVEDOGS….. You got numerous rings on a real light schedule where there is not any competition. Thats why no one really respects the records or the rings. At all. My team is playing for the state championship an playing in the highest classification with a very tough schedule. The toughest? Probaly not but very tough. Here let us compare it to the college level. You got a football team of the highest caliber like an Auburn, a LSU, even an Alabama type school. Playing the equivalent to maybe a Lagrange, or a Shorter, maybe a a tough school every now and then like a Furman or a Troy state or Ga state…… every week of the schedule. I mean really how dominate are you if you are beating up Middle school programs? If thats the way you want to be known, well thats fine if you want to stay inside the city limits I guess. Self built heroes for sure. But outside those city limits, it looks like a cakewalk with no competition at all. Puts one to sleep. Your scores over the last 10 seasons proves it and the schedules are out there too. Have only played a competitive game once or twice in ten years. SHow me any others where your fans were not bored to tears.
