I hate when coaches schedule games they have a zero chance of winning: Is traveling to some city or state really worth the embarrassing 40-50 point undressing? Are you gonna remember the museum you went to, or how another football team made you look like an incompetent Pop Warner team?

Or the check your athletic department cashed?

OOS games are typically very expensive and use up all the money given. There are a few instances of bumming it by taking a bus and not staying in a hotel overnight. But that’s a shitty drive. And a coach and AD prostituting their team out for a few bucks. Terrible

Everyone, well a lot of programs want the instant notoriety that comes with of playing OOS.  There was a time when those games happened between neighboring states that were close in proximity OR perennial powerhouses that had something to prove against other powerhouses.  Now it's a free-for-all and it severely diminishes the worth of those games.  I can respect Coach Castle for knowing when to risk it and when to sit his ass down, lol.

Yet you and your buddy Shyster Joe demand teams consistently play these very expensive, and very time-consuming games. If they don't, you call them p*ssies and talk about their coaches not having "the chest" to "challenge" his boys. :huh:

 Not me. I don’t call teams that for NOT playing the games. I will never call a bad team a name for refusing to play a good team. It’s the opposite. The elite teams who play garbage are the punks.

But when discussing a team you think should play OOS, you refuse to acknowledge that, no matter how strong the team is or isn't, the financial costs and extreme travel conditions may explain the lack of OOS game. Instead, it's always that the coach doesn't have "the chest" to challenge his players, that you wouldn't want your son to play for such a man, etc.

I think you are talking about Camden Co or most those South GA teams who play the worst of the worst

It is my understanding that Lakeland had a good but not great Georgia team lined up for a game, and the GA team reneged with limited or no notice. You hear anything about that? 

I did not but it doesn’t surprise me at all considering Georgia is a coward state and what I mean by that they are overrun with coaches and AD’s that pretend to be tough and hard nosed Southern style football but then act like they have skirts on when it’s time to schedule. Most seek out the worst they can find. Only some have the balls to play even tough teams and most likely the coaches are from somewhere else

So my guess is the GA team found a much weaker opponent

I think the team was Newton from Covington, which I had never heard of. They have a home game with Douglas Co scheduled the week they were supposed to come to Lakeland. Not a marquee team, but much better than no game at all, and being stuck with three home games for the season as L has.

What’s the week? The date
