Storyline: Webb lost last week to Maryville, 28-7, and Baylor rolled in its opener, 51-6 over Howard. If Baylor quarterback Nick Tiano is as sharp as he was last week -- 5-of-8 (with three drops) for 155 yards and four TDs -- the Red Raiders will be tough to handle.

TSSAA Division I coaches and athletic directors from high schools in the southeastern part of the state met Thursday at Chattanooga Christian School to discuss football classification proposals and the possibility of a split between public and all private schools.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Even though the debate over a potential public/private school complete split was never mentioned openly during the two days of the TSSAA Board of Control meetings, the subject was discussed during the closed-door session, according to one board member.

Coaches and athletes in southeastern Tennessee and northwestern Georgia often lament the fact that there is very little in-season competition between area high school programs in the two states. The TSSAA and the GHSA are on different reclassification cycles, so scheduling interstate contests proves difficult.
