  1. Kid from Anna is legit. He shut down Melissa the other night. I don’t know how fast he throws but it is different then anyone else I have seen this year. Melissa is not very good this year compared to the last couple of years. Melissa has lost lots of good would be junior and senior players that don’t play anymore from what I hear because of the head coach or former HC now. Probably why it is former now. Not saying they win state or anything but they sure could use some senior leadership now. As it looks they may miss playoffs or at best finish 4th in district.
  2. Not allowed to run for a school board seat? By who, the board itself? That is pure insanity that you would even suggest that. I can’t imagine the lawsuits that would ensue if someone tried to stop someone else from running for a public office. That might work in Venezuela. Maybe you should move to Venezuela. I kid, I kid. Take care and stay warm and safe.
  3. You obviously haven’t heard the way some of the coaches, one in particular, talks to the kids. There is coaching then there is flat verbal abuse and disrespect. If you’re tied in like it sounds you know who it is. That behavior is indefensible.
  4. “who violates the basic principle in life and that is being decent.” Wish a few of the admin and coaches thought the same way. On second thought I think Blue Ridge should hire them all. Problem solved!
  5. I have no knowledge of what you’re talking about regarding the altercation you are referencing. I just know there is a lot of people that do not like the way the sports programs are run. More importantly the exorbitant amount of money being spent on infrastructure for sports. Desired change has much more to do than just sports. It will be resolved the most equitable way our society has and that is through the election process. If the board turns over in the next few years I suspect you will see changes starting with the superintendent. It will only happen through the removal of incompet
  6. You just epitomized the administration and staff in Melissa with your response. Self serving people with little regard for the kids. The only QB I know about is the one that didn’t live in Melissa for the first half of the season but still played. Out of all other shady transfers that is the straw that broke the camel’s back for many people. The staff is just a reflection of the Superintendent and the AD.
  7. Melissa lost their best returning player for 2021 because of that coaching staff. Although they will spin it differently I’m sure. I would avoid like the plague anyone off that staff in my opinion. Success there has come at feasting on inferior non-district teams and being in a terrible district save Argyle every year and Paris some years. Can’t get past 3rd round after getting to play weak district 6 & 8 opponents. I wound imagine you will see quite a bit of turnover this year and probably a entire staff change in 2022. Townsfolk don’t like the ways things are done in Melissa. Sch
  8. I know Paris would have beat Anna and probably beat Melissa. Should have been ruled no contest. I know at least one school that had a positive case but conveniently suppressed that info so they could play. It penalizes the teams that do the right thing and report positive cases. Even though a splinter in a teenager’s finger is more deadly then the Chinese flu for them at least most schools are being honest.
  9. I don’t know their names just numbers but I think Youngblood #1? Why wouldn’t he play?
  10. I’v been waiting for this one all year. This will be the last game that either team will be tested in district then it will smooth sailing for both until round two or three maybe even until they meet again. As a Melissa resident but no more kids in school now, they are the team I followed closely since the start of this season. Now that 5-6A are back on the field I’ll be watching my nephew for the remaining weeks. That being said I’v been to all the games of Melissa so I’ll try to break down what i have seen. Hopefully RegalEagle could do the same for Argyle for this of that don’t kn
  11. Gunter is only 20-30 miles away from Melissa.
  12. Melissa has a 5a school on their schedule for week 2 so they may be looking. Easy trip for either.
  13. Whats going to happen when some kid on a team catches the Chinese Flu? That will happen. Will they shut down just that team? Any team that they played? The whole district? The whole state? There needs to be parameters in place to determine what will be protocol when that happens because it will happen. Having scared of their shadow administrators and politicians making knee jerk decisions clearly is not working. At this point they need to say play ball regardless of what may happen or pull the plug completely by June 1st. Shutting down a season after 3 games would be more de
  14. Really surprised that LV dominated Argyle like they did. If not for some of dumbest clock management in the history of football by the Melissa coaches at the end of the LV vs Melissa game LV might not have even advanced. Melissa had a chance eliminate LV while they were down with players having the flu and spotting Melissa a 20 pt lead. That didn’t happen and it looks like LV is a team of destiny.
  15. District 7 4A-1 lost 3 teams. Celina, Sanger & N. Lamar leaving Anna, Argyle, Paris & Melissa. Do they just roll with 4 teams or maybe move Gainesville to that district? No other teams really make any sense to add it seems geographically. Celina came out a huge winner. They will roll next year.
  16. Not sure LV even knew they were in a football game the first half last night. They gifted Melissa a 20 pt lead 6 of which was a pick 6. Once LV decided to start playing Melissa’s defense was Swiss cheese. Melissa also had a KO return for a TD so two of the TD’s they had were unconventional. Reality is LV was the way better team but didn’t play well. Melissa’s clock management the last 30 seconds of the game killed them from having a chance to steal it in the end. It was the worst coaching I’ve ever seen. What made the Melissa coaches think the LV coaches were going to allow th
  17. Those defensive stats are way misleading due to who those 7 of 11 are. Any team with an offensive pulse drilled that defense. Frisco, TCA, Paris, Argyle lit that defense up and China Springs was killing it until their starting QB got hurt. Honestly Celina was probably their best defensive effort of the year. Celina has good players but the most vanilla offense you can imagine so not hard to hold them down. Melissa will get throttled by LV next week. They probably won’t even have to throw a pass. I predict Melissa’s offense get shut down too. LV will beat Melissa much worse then Cel
  18. Melissa’s defense is terrible and they for the most part shut down Celina. Don't think Celina makes it to a rematch. That being said with it being rainy on Thursday night it’s probable Melissa gets beat. I think LV ends both team’s seasons though.
  19. Paris can put a tail whipping on them if they don’t have to rely upon their QB to throw the ball. He is reasonably athletic but not in a throwing the ball kind of way. They are also athletic on defense but somewhat undisciplined. Ought to be a very good game. Paris by 14 I’ll say.
  20. Any type of game that makes Celina a “throwing team” favors Argyle by a billion miles. The thing is Celina is just not capable of throwing the ball 20-30 times in a game and have a high level of success. It’s just not how they have been coached. Secondly Argyle shut down Melissa’s passing offense. I think they threw for like 50 yards. Argyle’s DBs manned up the Melissa receivers. Literally got in the Melissa receivers faces lining up 2 feet off them and dared them to beat them one on one and they flat out dominated the Melissa receivers. Melissa’s receivers are no where near c
  21. Argyle is a complete team. I just don’t see how Celina can keep this close. Their offense is so simplistic. They have some talent without question but seem to refuse to use it to its fullest potential and rely on their stud RB. Stop him and you will have shut down their offense. They have a 6’7” receiver against Melissa that was lined up on a CB that was 5’6” and that might be generous. Not once did they test that match up. I can only guess maybe the kid can’t catch. Argyle will shut them down. Arglye against Celina’s D will not be a match up that favors Celina either. Argyle’s O-
  22. Defense wins championships. At least you have to have a little defense these days. Argyle’s defense may be better then expected but I also think people over rate Melissa’s offense a little. Other then the QB who else can beat you on that team? Argyle’s DB’s lined up nose to nose with the Melissa receivers and shut them down. No respect for the Melissa receivers were going to beat them deep. All they had working was their QB to run the ball but he is fantastic just not much to help him last night. Melissa’s D. Where do you start? D-line got dominated, LB’s washed out every play, sec
