    1Prouddog, there you go again spouting M'burg's perfect record vs Musselman. Well no more. Just admit you were wrong and move on. Y'know, Musselman works and plays hard too. How about showing them a little credit?

    Musselman has beaten the dogs in BASKETBALL twice, thats it ! The first time was when Todd Mosby was senior ! Who cares if the refs were bad, their isnt a ref in the state that calls a perfect game!! The dogs lost fair and square so deal with it !!! Anyone who has seen Treyvon Wescoe play more than one game can see when he has the ball he looks like he is fighting in a WWE match, but when he is on defense if he farts its a foul, ridiculous!!! This is BASKETBALL not FOOTBALL, trust me the dogs will loose to a WV team within the next year, so get the tissues ready!!!! If you all cry now , martinsburg will have flash floods if I'm right !!!!!!

    Hey 1proudog, how about your mighty "dogs" play just the players coming from your middle schools and see how successful you remain. Not very I suspect. Fact is your sports programs recruit players as does "the ville", loading those teams every year for the sake of "winning". No team at this level can be as successful year in and year out without there being some recruiting going on. Just can't happen. No amount of great coaching will get it done if they don't have the talent to work with. Difference is Musselman doesn't play that game. They play their middle school players only. You do that and you won't win all the time either. So in my opinion, all the success is hollow and meaningless for that very reason. Tell you what, how about we add up our GPA's and compare them for our respective male teams and see who wins the stat that really counts. I'd bet MY house the 'bull'dogs wouldn't make it out of the section. You game? It's high school sports '1proudog', get a life. Your insulting comments reflect poorly on MHS but it's exactly what we've come to expect from that school. Uneducated folks with no real perspective on LIFE!!!

    Great point Beagle Hound. Especially Berkeley Springs. One of the biggest AA schools in the state.

  • wow

    WHAT, Martinsburg lost a game. We better keep an eye on 1prouddog, he may just jump off a bridge or something. Now on the serious side Martinsburg is young and they won't be down long, too many good players in the pipeline.

  • beagle hound

    The eastern panhandle is on a roll, but considering the population boom vs the dwindling numbers of the rest of the state, the only school with real rights to brag is Martinsburg. The other 6 schools plus BS should be wearing teams out, but they are not.

    j,
    Reading over your post you sound like you root for anybody but Martinsburg. Doesn't matter. I'm one that believes in loyalty and pride...it makes CHAMPIONS!!!....maybe that's why you can't see black and orange?

  • j

    1prouddog what part of I'm a bulldog fan do you not understand there bud. I just chose not to live life with orange and black blinders on like most including you. Where am I getting my information I happen to know a family who had a kid on the team the 99-00 season as a matter of fact the managed to beat martinsburg twice that season. Their series record in boys basketball is dogs 35 apple men 3

    j,
    I'm not sure where you are getting your information. Even if Musselman did beat Martinsburg once before and I really doubt they did...this lucky win means nothing! You have to get off on it because when any Applesauce team beats the Bulldogs in a male sport its a MIRACLE!!! I'm happy you can find some happiness for a change! LOL

  • j

    And it wasn't the first time in school history. First since the 99-00 season.

  • j

    Oh and the game was only moved one day so it really wasn't a make up game. Martinsburg was scheduled to play Musselman that Friday.

  • j

    1prouddog. So you are calling another ten year reign for the dogs. Look I'm a dogs fan but I'm going to look at everything through orange and black glasses. Sure Martinsburg has had a incredible run the 13 + plus around here. Everything comes to a end and it will when know one knows for sure. But I know for a fact a lot of the kids coming through youth league are going to go other schools namely Mussel man and Spring Mills.This coming season I wouldn't be shocked if Martinsburg loses their first game to a team for WV

    • realist

      Why do you think kids will go to Spring Mills and Musselman? I highly doubt that....as long as kids can go to Martinsburg to play football, they will. Sure there's a new high school, sure the high schools districts were altered. But I haven't seen any repeal of the feeder school rule....so as long as kids go to a school that even partially feeds into Martinsburg, they'll want to go there to be coached by the best staff the state's seen.

      • realist

        And seeing as the feeder school rule was created to promote social development, I don't see them repealing it any time soon.

        • realist

          Or should I say.....feeder school loophole?

  • 1prouddog

    People please...this was a make-up game that was called due to snow! Fact is Martinsburg is younger and didn't come ready to play...so what Musselman won for the first time in their schools history vs. Martinsburg....what's that mean? Nothing!...If you Musselman fans wanna crown yourselves because you'll finally beat the mighty Dogs in a hoop game...go ahead! Fact still remains....Washington is the team to beat in the panhandle!....then there's the Dogs, Hooterville and Applesauce...only 2 can advance to region..I'll bet my house it won't be the rotten apples of Mussxxxxx!!! LOL

    JJ I agree with it has become interesting watching basketball around the panhandle this year. It has become pretty even around this area. As far as football being that way I honestly don't believe we are that far away from it being very competitive in this area. With Martinsburg,Mussel man,Jefferson,Washington and the dark horse Spring Mills and going to be able to take it all.

    • 1prouddog

      Keep dreaming j...no football team in this panhandle will be coming close in the next 10 years of beating Martinsburg!!! That's a fact!!!
