Notre Dame's Class 3A TSSAA playoff game Friday has been moved off campus and will be played at Finley Stadium.

Stars: South Pittsburg lost its top RB at the time, Corbin Fitzgerald (700 rushing yards), to injury in the seventh game.

The TSSAA Board of Control on Thursday approved the proposed Division I football regions including the four-region, Class 6A division that will have 32 teams with all advancing to the postseason.

Considering GPS coach Jennifer Williams' team won twice Tuesday, she may consider revitalizing the city basketball jamboree as a win-win-win situation.

For the first time since he resigned at Rhea County High School almost two seasons ago, Doug Greene is going back there.

The last two Marches, Central boys' basketball coach Rick Rogers has taken his players — dressed alike in their warmup suits — to Murfreesboro to watch the TSSAA state tournament. But in March 2015, the Purple Pounders hope to be doing more than just watching.

Locally there's at least one group of girls who can rival Baylor's starters this basketball season.

Bradley Central will log a lot of miles, Sequatchie County is going over the mountain, Meigs County is coming back to the Chattanooga area and longtime rivals McMinn Central and Polk County are parting ways.

Since the TSSAA went to its current format for football playoffs six years ago, Rockwood had made trips to Boyd-Buchanan for games in 2009, 2011 and 2012, and all were losses. Throw in a loss at Silverdale Baptist Academy last season and the Tigers were fruitless in all their trips to Chattanooga.

Stars: The Pirates started the year planning to lean heavily on RB Corbin Fitzgerald, but he was injured in their game against Boyd-Buchanan so they turned to Chase Blevins and Triston Adams.

(Tennessee playoff kickoffs at 7 p.m. local time)

Becca Barnes hasn't missed a game in which her husband, Justin, has coached since they got married 10 years ago. Their daughters, 4-year-old Brenna and 14-month-old Brinkley, haven't missed any since they were born.

It looks as if the TSSAA did a fairly decent job this season with its playoff pairings but there always are those items that can be scrutinized.
