News and Notes from the Publisher

A few notes from the publisher of South Carolina Pigskin Prep.

Last week was a hard week around here. I had surgery a week ago last Monday and was pretty much out of the loop for the most part. Thanks to Mark Jeffcoat for helping us out on the site and keeping the boards up and going. I am feeling much better except that my beloved Cavs are suffering just a little this week.



This past Monday, we upgraded the boards software and increased the security and filters to weed out a few of the trouble makers. In the process a few people may have trouble logging on and posting. If you do have trouble and receive a banned user message, then email us at and we will fix the problem.


Please include your user name, your password, how you connect to the internet (ie AOL, Charter Pipeline, Roadrunner, etc.) and when the last time you posted. We will fix it immediately and have you back up and running.


If you have been banned and it was for a good reason then we are not offering amnesty at this time. Earlier this week I received a call from a School Superintendent, a Church Minister and and many other people who were very upset with the tone of the boards and the subject matter posted by some. We went through and delted many messages and banned many of the problem children.


The new software will assist us in keeping boards fan friendly.



We experience email problems this week. At one time I had over 1100 emails in my box and I am now trying to go through and respond and answer the request. If you have emailed me and I have not responded then please accept my apologies and I hope to catch up over the weekend. Thanks for your understanding. If you need to email SC Pigskin Prep then please use these addresses and not a message through the message boards.

I am looking forward to my trip to the Reservation Friday night. I will finally stand face to face with the Big Gaffney Indian. Regardless of the records, the Reservation is always special to visit and always a great time.



We will have the playoff brackets and records for Class 3A, 2A and 1A this Friday night. Have a great Friday night, drive safely and enjoy the Friday Night Lights.
