They walk out of that fieldhouse and these dudes will bleed green the rest of their lives. Thatโ€™s home. Iโ€™m proud to say that Longview, Texas, is my home." Greatness.

  5. So, if a kid had a choice of playing the biggest game of his life in Jerryโ€™s World or The Alamo Dome you think they would pick San Antonio? Donโ€™t think so. You canโ€™t match the experience that you get at AT&T.

  7. I really don't how you can improve the experience more than it already is. A great change was playing 3 games on Saturday instead of 4. You now don't have games ending at 1:00AM. I always laugh at the folks who think they are going to reserve seats for school fans at the championship games. Most of those 50k folks in Jerryworld are casual fans. The hardcore fans show up at the start of the first game and jockey themselves to a great seat. Every year I see near fist fights because folk try to reserve 10+ seats for family and friends. These folks think it's okay to show up 5 minutes to kickoff a

  13. Yes I can't wait to see what meredith does full time at running back. Perry will be hard to replace but I dont see the passing game missing a beat. I was talking to a guy in the mall earlier and he was going on about the talent coming up.

  14. I didn't see anyone jump over anyone, or even jump and push off another player. All I saw was two Newton defenders jump up with their arms up behind the line of scrimmage. I didn't see anything that could even remotely be against the rules unless it's simply against the rules to jump up to block a kick ... it looked to me like that ref was just looking for anything to call a penalty on on that play ... smh

  15. I posted this on another thread, but decided to bring it over hear since there is still chatter on this one. My butt is still chaffing from the insane calls made by the officials. Not just in the Newton game, the Whittington kid and a Highland park kid got screwed out of beautiful catches because of dumb rule interpretations. Here goes!! Another๏ปฟ suggestion is to adopt specific rules for using the replay, review process. They should do just like Major League Baseball. Once th๏ปฟe review๏ปฟ ruling is made, the official on the ground has no say. After clear and convincing evidence is

  19. Forgot to mention that the Lobos also picked up a win over Mesquite Horn last Friday in their 11-6A opener, 61-54, in Mesquite. Lobos now 10-12 all-time against the Jags. https://lobohistory.com/basketball/lobos/gamelogs/mesquitehorn.html Longview improved to 16-2 (1-0) on the season and won their 12th consecutive game.

  21. The only math I used as a coach was the Pythagorean Therum to lay out and mark a football practice field from scratch and the possible permutations possible in matching the right Offensive Play Call vs any given defense or defenses. However, a couple of times when our defense was really, really overmatched and really, really playing terribly in the middle of the first quarter, I kept looking at the scoreboard trying to determine if, at the current rate, there were enough digits on the scoreboard to handle the numbers til the end of the game. Many people say that Chess is a lot like f

  23. Predictive causality is an interesting topic along with associative forecasting. Real Through the Looking Glass type stuff, well at least the larger implications are. Predictive cause and effect? In unrelated news *wink* President Trump just signed a bill ($1.2 billion) that will boost research into quantum technology. Numbers are getting too big. 2.77 billion users of social media platforms worldwide. Hmmm?

  24. I live in the Houston area and you are absolutely correct about the drop in attendance, and to compound the problem the local businesses (hotels, restaurants, etc.) didn't have a clue that the championship games were being held at NRG. I've been to the event at both stadiums and had a much better experience at Jerry's World.

  30. I hope they never change it. AT&T is the perfect venue. Houston, Austin, and San Antonio are all night mares to drive in. You can get to AT&T from many directions to dodge the traffic.

  33. No, simple as that. The kids want to play on a big stage, under a roof, in front of tons of people on TV. Why would you take that away from them just so you have a shorter drive?

  35. Yes sir, Pax, Gunter was very good. They would have played Newton much closer this year than they did last year. This year flew by fast - too fast, but it was very fun. There were some really good teams this year in 3A D2. I realize that one poster does not have any respect for the teams that are out west, but I wish that the smoaky folks could have seen Abernathy and Childress play football. Those two teams had some real power. Very well disciplined, physical, and would lay the wood. I believe that the smoaky fellas who appreciate physical football would have enjoyed seeing those two teams pl

  36. Bands are part of high school football. No one is holding you at gun point and forcing you to watch their performance. Might I suggest you use halftime as an opportunity to use the restroom and visit the concession stand.

  37. They guy who caught those passes was a beast. He is a Dez Bryant clone with more size and is just a sophomore. They were short passes that he took the distance. I can't think of any DB's who would have stop him.

  38. Band is part of football. The band worked hard and supported the team all year, those kids deserve to do their thing in Jerry World too. This is not the NFL, a league that could go broke for all I care and I certainly would not miss them.

  40. Lady Lobos picked up their biggest win of the season to date with a 67-52 win over Mesquite Horn, a big upset in 11-6A play. Win was Longview's first over Horn since 2006, and their first in 18 tries. Longview now 13-5 (1-1) on the season. https://lobohistory.com/basketball/ladylobos/gamelogs/mesquitehorn.html
