Opening Drive (Nov. 22): Drenched in drama

Will you need rain gear tonight, or will the skies let up enough to allow things to be settled on the field in calm conditions?

Who will break through to the Class 4A semifinals, DeKalb County or Nolensville?

Which way will several rematches go this time around?

Will there be a representative from the midstate in Cookeville in Division II-AAA?

Those questions and more will be answered tonight … on the field.

The time for talking is over. This time next week, we’ll be trying to recover from turkey and Black Friday shopping excursions.
