It might have been the same ol' Vanderbilt, but it certainly wasn't the same ol' Tennessee, because I've never seen so many UT fans get that excited earning a win over this much smaller school to their west.
I've eaten and have definitely given my children things to eat at supermarkets before I've paid for them. I've never eaten anything that had to be weighed though, because I guess I felt like I would be stealing the unweighed portion. I never considered it to be a big deal. And by the way, I don't think that anyone would consider me to be obese.
I'm well aware of the definition and spelling of bigot. Your original post actually sort of sounded like you think that Signal should be able to keep all of these good, out of zone athletes. I'm sure East Ridge is happy to get to keep Colton, and for the record, I don't really know Scooter. From your story, maybe a mom reported Tim McClendon too.
Let me educate you TDMan by extending your definition of nepotism to hiring friends as well as family. I'm sure there are teachers and staff at Signal that procured their jobs through some type of connection, but those take more than a quick web search to trace.
Tell Scooter to move on the mountain if he wants his kid to go to Signal, rather than listing his salon as a residential address. At least that's one case where the administration made sure a kid was "in zone". Who cares if that mom stood up for her kid and others? And it's "lose", not "loose".
Signal has a Nashville School of Law attorney going up against a Vanderbilt graduate and a University of TN Law School attorney. I bet Brentwood Academy at least hired bigger guns for their fight back in the day.
I agree with Tarheeljosh. The quote from Patty Lane is lame. I doubt the private schools reported them so why worry about them? Either you did everything correctly, or you didn't. Jealousy has nothing to do with the TSSAA's eventual ruling. And next time, get a lawyer from a better school than the Nashville School of Law.
Is filling out eligibility forms usually the coach's job? I would assume that to be the AD's job.
I thought he was listed at 6'2".
Tom McCullough replaced the former Signal Mountain principal because of a paperwork problem. Now Signal has another one?! He was supposed to bring academic excellence and accountability to the school, but instead ignores the TSSAA's recommended disciplinary action for the football team following the Signal/Soddy Daisy scrimmage scuffle (Soddy Daisy principal and former coach John Maynard on the other hand was commended by the TSSAA for suspending his coaches and requiring community service for his players). Double checking paperwork for a brand new talented transfer should be a no-brainer for an experienced administrator like Dr. McCullough. The administration's failure to do so however has cost Signal the playoffs, and unfortunately, it's the kids that have to suffer.
