    ^I hear ya, buddy. We used to have our family reunions at Kings years ago. Always enjoy going back to Kinston, visiting the Neuse, etc. We steered way off the thread...lol

    Good luck to Hunt, jsh....very talented team you have. Cleveland is relatively new but Hunt's program reminds me of Garner in that they consistently win & put themselves in the chase each year. That's all ya can do & hope for a little luck along the way. Ready for round 2.

    Kings has a sandwich called a pig in a puppy. Basically a bbq sandwich in a huge hushpuppy instead of a bun! I never go to or from the beach without stopping for a couple!

    Yep...can't go wrong either way. I forgot all about Wilburs in Goldsboro, been there many times on the way to the Coast. Kings in Kinston off Hwy 70 is another good one. Been there a few times as well.

    that was the Ed Mitchell I was talking about that beat Bobby Flay. Wonder if he has retired?
    @Bishop
    its a toss up between the 2 but lots of folks here at home prefer Parkers to Bills. Can't go wrong either way. Id take Bs over the bunch including Wilburs. Highly recommended but get there early. Bout 1 the food is gone and the doors are locked!

    The PIT in Raleigh is excellent. I heard that the cook there that beat Bobby Flay in a cook off is no longer there. Food is still good though. Lets not forget Wilburs in Goldsboro either. Thats some good down home BBQ also.

    A co-worker of mine told me about B's...he's been there a time or fifty according to him (ECU fan). If I remember correctly, they ran a nice segment on B's several months ago, don't remember the exact date. Bill's in Wilson is my personal favorite but we're planning on getting to B's at some point. This isn't thread related but there's nothing wrong talking about football & BBQ. IMO

    Ed Mitchell's is a great story with a sad ending in Wilson. Running his dads store, he cooked a pig for the family after his dads death and sold the left overs in the store. Folks that bought some wanted more to the extent the store was turned into a restaurant. He expanded only to see his under construction building ruined by a hurricane and when it was finally finished the bills wouldn't allow him to compete price wise and the customer base that built the business couldn't afford it any longer. He won a huge pitmaster contest in NY and others. By far his BBQ was superior, and I feel very fortunate to have been able to enjoy it. Sorry to the Triton and Conley fans for us that hijacked this thread.

Nash over Hunt then he's probably a legit fan. I wouldn't claim S. Nash for anything...Not even to make you mad Bishop5 lol ;) Oh and good luck Friday night.

    @scousler Triton's schedule will be a little tougher next year. Unfortuanetly we have to play our county schools mandated by the school board. With the conference realignment next season and Western Harnett being in the conference we will be playing the likes of Grays Creek, Rocky Mount, Cape Fear even though it will be a rebuilding season for us after losing 24 seniors Triton will still have some talent returning and some good players coming up from JV. It will be up to the coaches to get these kids rolling in the offseason. It should be an interesting year for the Hawks next year.

Joyner is one of the best RBs that i have seen in my yrs of watching hs football. BUT.. on the other hand, If you are any implication of Cleveland, South Johnston,etc, your team of choice fan base.

    No disrespect, scousler, but I'm sure Coach Morris understands all of that stuff about playing better teams. Ever heard of building a program? I'm sure Cleveland's schedule will get tougher in the future but we do thank you & others for your concern. They're a 2nd year program in terms of playing a Varsity sched....RELAX!

  • scousler Nov 6, 2012

    No disrespect meant to fans of Triton, Cleveland, or S. Johnston. All are capable of winning playoff games. Triton, being the oldest of the 3 schools used to play a very tough schedule - now, not so much. None of them played any top shelf teams other than themselves. Havelock plays at least 2 4A schools a season, and usually one, if not both, are very good. You don't get better or know what kind of team you have till you play good teams. Rolling up forty points against bad/average teams doesn't count for much. My only take is that it's hard consider teams from that conference as favorites in playoffs when teams that do play tough schedules - like DH Conley, Havelock, Hunt, Eastern Alamance, Cardinal Gibbons, Chapel Hill, Orange, Northern Guilford are out there. Cleveland may finally earn some state wide respect if they can clear their bracket and advance to the state title game - but given who lies ahead - I rate them as the biggest longshot to do so.

    @Mojo

    It depends on what's posted & how it's presented. It doesn't bother me when others pick their teams or other teams to beat Cleveland or Garner. Quite frankly, I don't care. Games are not decided on HSOT. However, when others post things that are not accurate, I have an issue with that.

    Ex. accusing Cleveland of kicking an onside kick when, in fact, the kid shanked it by accident. Cleveland kicks the ball short most of the time - strategic move.

    Just an fyi.....I'm all for good conversation/debate. In addition to that, we have free speech in this country & you/others can criticize the RAMS all you like. I'm gonna defend them when that happens & I would expect you & Hunt fans to do the same for your team.

    Lastly....pretty sure RAM fans discuss things away from here that they need to improve on. Don't see the point in pointing out their flaws on this site as I'm sure high school kids are reading this stuff. Agree with you....ALL teams have areas they need to improve on. Good luck Friday, Mojo.

    @ Bishop..I dont care if another fan base picks their team over Hunt. It makes for good conversation and debate as to how the two teams stack up but I dont take offense by attacking the poster or question his knowlege of my team, hey he may know more than me, and thats cool. I can admit Hunts weaknesses every team has em. I just feel that better discussion can be had if we focus on the teams and not the poster.

    ^Maxpreps id'd the Havelock game as a forfeit regardless. Really doesn't matter as they lost anyway but it is still id'd as a forfeit. That's why I posted above that they should probably be 11 - 1 overall. (If not for the prior issues)

    ^Not looking past any team & never do. DHC is much better than people think. They should probably be 11 - 1, they had the 3 forfeits, etc. Another poster indicated that they lost to Washington but that L was after the ineligible player stuff, which makes perfect sense as they were likely flat, had to play through a bad situation. Rest assured, we know Conley has a fantastic team but I'm going with the Rams for obvious reasons. We have a pretty good team as well.

    @bishop
    Mr Biden, my comment was in no way intended to knock on Cleveland. You're obsession with Hunt is flattering. I made a simple observation and you decided to turn it into something, again. Since we only watch I think fans can concentrate on more than one game that's still days away. One would suggest that I'm not the one looking past my teams upcoming opponent. As far as those mutual opponents, maybe if Hunt had shown the class Cleveland did running an onside kick up 45-0 instead of sitting their entire 1st string after the 1st quarter the margin of victory would have been greater. My apologies for making a positive post about your upcoming opponent.

  • ewimberly3 Nov 4, 2012

    Just a note about scheduling. It is my understading that Harnett County teams, Triton, must play the 3 other county teams for non-conference. This is a Board decision. I do not think they will change unless they end up in same conference after realignment. When all were is the same coference they did play a tougher schedule. This rule saves $$$.

    Hunt beat Eastern Wayne 44 - 12, Cleveland beat 'em 69 - 0
