Well the new Olvey Field is nearly finished. Football is just a few weeks out, any predictions on this years season? I am hoping but really not holding my breath!

Yes. Here is a prediction for you. Absolutely No Change but the same dismal season after dismal seasons. Same running Off tackle plays. New Stadium, same old ancient relics. You don't put old wine into new bottles, because the wine will run out, and the bottles will break. Same here in this case. You don't put an old coach who is not even a has been into a new stadium.

We all know what the results will be.

sebekm commented on Tuesday, Jun 26, 2012 at 19:21 PM

So I guess building the new stadium was like putting lipstick on a pig?

hollabackk commented on Tuesday, Jun 26, 2012 at 19:31 PM

Nice to have new stadium. Thats all i really can say. They have a cupcake schedule so this Walsh's chance to prove everyone wrong.

Ive posted some links below that High School football fans might be interested in...Check out Camdens schedule, its brutal...

Camden has a brutal schedule... Especially being in Region 1.

SportsFan31313 commented on Wednesday, Jun 27, 2012 at 19:12 PM

Anyone know how many seats that this new Stadium will have?

SportsFan31313 commented on Thursday, Jun 28, 2012 at 15:04 PM

sebekm,

Maybe. Time will tell. I could only hope they augmented the number of seats. If they can get back the winning tradition, this could be a cash cow for the County, the School, and the program. Example: Sell Student Tickets to the student for a certain price, and for the Adults, sell only Season Tickets for the home Games. Do you know what type of revenue could be raise when Bradwell Institute Play the Cross Town Rival Liberty County? The hype, the prestige, County Champions and bragging rights between the two. Each year.

sebekm commented on Thursday, Jun 28, 2012 at 19:42 PM

I know next to nothing about local high school football - actually only pretty much what I read on these blogs and in the CC. My daughter went to Bradwell for one year way back when (1985-86), and I do recall that they had a winning tradition at that time.

I would expect that the "cross-town" rivalry should be able to generate a lot of interest - I guess as you say assuming they get back to a winning tradition.

Someone asked about parking at the new stadium - didn't they put a bunch of parking BEHIND the stadium?

SportsFan31313 commented on Thursday, Jun 28, 2012 at 22:19 PM

I don't know about the parking either...

JimmyMack commented on Friday, Jun 29, 2012 at 14:16 PM

The answer to parking is: no, nada, nothing, fuhgedaboutit...I brought the issue up to the attention of the BOE. They placed a "practice" field behind the 7.5 million dollar stadium and did absolutely nothing about the parking issue.

However, as SF3, Jwade, and holla have made note of so accurately....Who is going to go watch a losing team? So ... I guess Parking is really a non-issue for BI.

SportsFan31313 commented on Saturday, Jun 30, 2012 at 10:53 AM

Guess parking will be on the practice field then on game day.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jun 30, 2012 at 12:04 PM

Hi SF3. You are probably right about the practice field and the odd thing is that if it is opened up for parking it will be filled by followers of the teams playing B.I. rather than the locals.

I remember full stadiums, standing room only crowds and hometown "caravans" to other High Schools during BI's glory days. Many times the BI crowd out numbered the home team's attendees.

Ah...the memories...."Ain't it funny how the night moves..."

Sad.

hollabackk commented on Sunday, Jul 01, 2012 at 08:33 AM

I look for the stadium to be packed Aug 31 when Bradwell plays Liberty County but after that we will see. Yes, they should of built a parking area but when you think about it, this his how Liberty County has always done things. We build somthing, see its not sufficient,then add on or build another. Example, The Courthouses/annex, water dept, highschools, little elementary and middle schools. Etc.

I just read in the Sunday Sound Off section of the Coastal Courior where someone called the new stadium "The University of Georgia Stadium"... 7.5 million dollars is alot of money but in this day and age of highschool football stadiums, thats a bargin. Most schools spend that just to renovate their stadium, not to build one.

The link i posted above with the video is a 60 million dollar HIGHSCHOOL stadium for one highschool. It makes most DIV II college stadiums look like highschool stadiums.

Lighten up Hinesville, B.I. Football was the one thing that this town was known for in the 80's. Its time it was again. That new stadium was very neccessary. It should have paved parking though.

SportsFan31313 commented on Sunday, Jul 01, 2012 at 22:11 PM

The person who said that must have not attended any football games out of the area. Take a look at some of the Stadiums in the Metro Atlanta Area, Valdosta, Lowndes, and ETC.... Vadosta Stadium even have Stadium Seats in some sections instead of the regular aluminum bleachers. It made Olvey Field look like a practice field. I could only hope that this is the beginning of something great.

Jasonwade74 commented on Wednesday, Jul 04, 2012 at 21:26 PM

Sad but I see the stadium being empty most of the season... Unless you bring winning back to BI football I do not see an issue with the current lack of parking because no one will come! maybe they did plan it

Bradwell Institute - OPEN

SportsFan31313 commented on Thursday, Jul 05, 2012 at 20:30 PM

Hollabackk,

I have been speaking about Coaches being fired for losing seasons long ago, to make a point. The problem is your BOE members who dos not think that Bradwell Institute Football or any other Sport Program at Bradwell Institute is nothing but an excurricular activity. They can not see beyond that. This is BIG Business. NO one want to attend a Football game knowing that there are repetitive dismal season after dismal season. No one will waste there money by donating to a dismal program. You want to sell tickets? Win games... Bottom line.

SportsFan31313 commented on Sunday, Jul 08, 2012 at 13:47 PM

Jimmy D,

I remeber all of that too. Full to capacity home games with standing room only, Hundreds of BI Fans traveling to away games two hours away to support, and cheer for the Tigers Football Team. Huge Fan base and great support. But BI had a mcuh better cadre of coaches, Athletic Director, and great football program. Those days are long gone. Now you are dealing with disconnected BOE members, and a good ole boy system. Until Walsh is gone, you will continue to have dismal seasons after dismal seasons of footabll.

hollabackk commented on Monday, Jul 09, 2012 at 10:45 AM

Sportsfan,

I know you have. I was just reminding them its ok to let someone go, it happens all the time. Atleast 61 times this off-season alone.

Im an "88" grad of B.I. so i remember the town shutting down on friday night and the huge crowds. I remember when i couldnt make it to game I could hear the roar of the crowd at my house.

Sadly, this town and generation may not know what Big Time highschool football is about again and thats sad, especially for the students. Highschool and college are once in a lifetime experiences and sports are part of it. Everyone wants to be able to bragg on how good the team was when they were in school.

SportsFan31313 commented on Monday, Jul 09, 2012 at 13:39 PM

Hollabackk,

You know, it shocks me, and it saddens me to actually listen to, and see that BOE members and the Good Ole Boy system now supports absolute failure. These kids are not getting a fair chance of moving on the next level as it used to be during the Glory days of Bradwell Institute Athletics. They would rather keep their personal friend (Walsh) there and see these kids go no where than to gracefully make Walsh step down, and bring a new exprienced Coach with a positive track record to bring back the winning tradition back to Bradwell Institute. "OUR ALMA MATER". These kids will have a better chance in moving on to the next level with Walsh gone. I realize that Walsh has remained in Class AAAAA (Due To Student Enrollment) thereby playing other teams. However; he could have scheduled a stronger strength of schedule. But even with those teams that he has scheduled, I really don't believe that he could win against those schools to include the Savannah Teams. These are teams we could beat, and not even have to practice for. I really don't believe he could pull out wins over Liberty County, Glynn Academy, Charlton County (Non Region Game) Groves, and Ware County. The others maybe a toss up. But I'm not sure about Richmond Hill, and the others remaining teams. They, (Richmond Hill) did have a good season in 2011. Windsor Forest (Crushed Bradwell In Hinesville last year 34-24) Bradwell lost to Savannah High in Hinesville and in Savannah (that's Two Years in a row 2010, and 2011) Jenkins Of Savannah Hammered Bradwell 31-5 in Hinesville. I don't know about Effingham County but they are better than the Savannah Teams. So there you have it. For Bradwell Institute to have have a successful season in 2012, it would have to have a miracle worker at the reigns while Walsh is there. So in my opinion, you could surely believe that they will have a repeated season like it was last year. The best I have them at is a weak maybe 5-5 and I maybe giving them too much credit.

hollabackk commented on Tuesday, Jul 10, 2012 at 19:39 PM

The sad part is 5-5 is considered a success around here now. Not to mention if you manage to be the 4th place playoff qualifier..lol

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Jul 11, 2012 at 11:00 AM

How in the Good Lord's Name cannot winning and losing count when rating a coaches performance? That is utterly ridiculous. SF# and Hollaback are right. We are in BI highschool football hell and the only thing that will get us out is hiring and firing.

I suppose if we go 0-10 for the next 12 years, with an empty stadium save for the visiting teams the powers that be MAY consider winning and losing included in a coaches job performance. I really do not know.

SportsFan31313 commented on Wednesday, Jul 11, 2012 at 12:40 PM

In Georgia High School Footabll across the State, .500 ball is unacceptable every where in the State except for Liberty County. If it was'nt so, then you would not have the above current openings being filled by other Coaches.
There is absolutely no doubt, that there is a good ole boy network there. The only way to bust that ring up is to vote out BOE members that support Walsh, and vote in new BOE members that want success for Bradwell Institute.

That will fire Jim Walsh Jr. by not renewing his contract or removing him as the Atheletic Director, and Head Football Coach. They could also send him to the classroom having him teach academics, Hire a new Atheletic Director, and Head Football Coach with a positive track record who will be held responsible for the success of the program. It's understood that during rebuilding years, you will have losing seasons at times. (No more than two losing seasons in a row) But to have unsuccessful seasons after unsuccessful seasons for many years in a row, even to an unprecedenting 2-8 season that No Head Football Coach at Bradwell Institute has never done at Bradwell Institute other Walsh, is down right disgusting, and unacceptable.

SportsFan31313 commented on Wednesday, Jul 11, 2012 at 13:25 PM

Hollabackk,

Analyzing the Region Games, I predict Bradwell losses would come from the helms of Glynn Academy, and Ware County. Other potential losses may come from Windsor Forest, Jenkins, and Groves. If I am correct on all of these loses, then it will be another dissapointing season and Bradwell Institute will have a another missed opportunity to make the post season playoffs.

Well, for that to happen, Walsh has got to go.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jul 14, 2012 at 13:09 PM

AMEN brother. However, I believe Walsh is in it til retirement.

SportsFan31313 commented on Saturday, Jul 14, 2012 at 13:54 PM

I certainly hope that you are wrong.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jul 14, 2012 at 13:59 PM

Me too SF. But look at his age and everything else including who else would hire him? I think we are stuck wid him til the end.

SportsFan31313 commented on Sunday, Jul 15, 2012 at 12:21 PM

Which is even more reason to get rid of him. It is time for a new era of a more technical coach. I mean really Jimmy D. It is time significant change in the Athletic Position and Head Football Coach Job at Bradwell Institute. He simply does not have what it takes to win. It's so evident as of the past mediocre to dismal seasons.

Tiger5 commented on Friday, Jul 27, 2012 at 09:01 AM

The stadium holds 6,100

hollabackk commented on Friday, Jul 27, 2012 at 17:29 PM

Tiger5,

please tell me 6,100 is a mistake for the new stadium or maybe thats the total for the home stands.

The old stadium held 10,000 didnt it. I believe to host a playoff game, your stadium has to hold atleast 8,000.

I remember when Bradwell had to play "home" playoff games in brunswick cause Olvey field was not big enough.

SportsFan31313 commented on Friday, Jul 27, 2012 at 18:53 PM

Well I was hoping that this new Stadium would have seating for at least 10,000 Fans or at least with room to augment seating at a later time. I don't know the seating capacity of the old Olvey Field. I'm currently out of the area, and I have not seen what the new Stadium look like. Well at least since the spring of 2012. But I did contact one of my colleagues who did see the new Stadium. My colleague stated that from what was seen so far, it looks good, and that it remind you of the Statesboro Blue Devils Womack Stadium, just a larger version of it.
I played against Statesboro in that Stadium back in the day, and from what I can remenber, the home side of Womack is nice, with a synthetic track surrounding the field. Stations for Track / Field events were / are also located in the Stadium. But the Visitors side was a little cheesy. I was hoping that this new Stadium will have equal seating on each side, and the Stadium be fully enclosed. (More like a Bowl).

SportsFan31313 commented on Friday, Jul 27, 2012 at 19:15 PM

Hollabackk,

I remember that too when Coach Ron Beechum's Bradwell Institute Tigers Football Team had to play against, and beat Nick Hyder's Valdosta Wildcats at Brunswick Stadium, in the quarter finals. They had to play there because Olvery Field did not have the seating capacity to seat such a capacity crowd, and fan base.

Thanks for the link..............

hollabackk commented on Friday, Aug 03, 2012 at 07:18 AM

I went by the stadium the other day it will clearly hold 8 to 10 thousand. I must say it looks very nice. A huge step up from that garbage we had before.

It is somthing to be proud of. They did a great job with the budget they had. I see this same company did Valdosta and Lowndes stadium also. Link is below.

Tiger5 commented on Friday, Aug 03, 2012 at 22:34 PM

Jasonwade74,

That is the same web-site I used for my information. It looks like it holds more than 6100, but I don't know. Perhaps the plans changed from their inception.

SportsFan31313 commented on Sunday, Aug 05, 2012 at 16:30 PM

Well That is great positive news to hear. Hopefull this successful project is the root and beginning for positive change for Bradwell Institute Football.

It would also be great to give the new Stadium a nickname. Here are some examples:

Thompson High School: "The Brickyard"

Parkview High School: " Big Orange Jungle"

Elbert County High School "Granite Bowl"

Just left BI scrimmage, I arrived at the start of the second qtr. BI 7 Wayne 0. I then watched the same ole BI football that we have seen the last few years. Confused players,no intensity or sense of urgency,miscues,coaches with no passion etc. It was pathetic. BI did not pick up 1 first down in the second or third qtr. BI was a much bigger team and Wayne County ran and threw at will.

I left when the score was 28-7 Wayne, with about 2min left in the 3rd. I Couldnt take anymore.
If this is the product that is gonna be put on the field this season, its gonna be a long season. This coach has put this program in the gutter. He has dismantled a program that was respected across the state when he took over 19yrs ago. If the powers that be think this is ok they need to realize that successful sports programs are part of the education process.

I really wanted to see this program get turned around. I thought that this might be the year with the new stadium and weak schedule. Massey predicts BI will go 2-8. Those computers just might be right after what i just saw tonite, even if it was only a scrimmage.

Hollabackk,

Bradwell Institute Football Team always had size, strength, and speed. What they are severely lacking is heart, and a adequate head football coach. Well you can see taxes going up much higher to pay for that new Stadium because the fan base wont be there to purchase tickets to watch the game. If you predict hem to go 2-8 this year, then I gave them too much credit. I said this for more than 3 years now. Walsh has to go. But your BOE wont listen to reason. So it is time to close your wallet. Don't waste your money on a dismal program.

For whatever reason, in this age of revenue and taxes, I cannot for the life of me understand how it is the BOE cannot see the relationship between dollars and winning. They spend 7.5 million on a stadium that they possbly cannot fill and offer up no parking!

Out of touch does not even come close to describing them.

You are absolutely right Jimmy Mack....

Why can not more College/Universities do this?
October 25, 2012
I remember seeing this on the news a few days ago and never really heard anything else about it. In Texas, Gov Perry challenged Colleges and Universities to offer 4 year degrees for under $10,000. Now I understand that there is a scholarship that goes with this and you have ...
