  1. Pottsboro and Mount Vernon clinch playoff spots with wins Howe is all but eliminated with a loss -- it would take about a dozen combinations to keep them in the hunt. The Rains-Commerce loser will be on life support The odds are pretty good going into the last week the four playoff spots are clinched and seeding is wrapped up.
  2. It will be longer than that -- Celina's growth has slowed more than I thought it would. Prosper has really siphoned off a lot of growth that I think was expected to head this way. Gunter just crossed 2,000 population and the latest census had them averaging 50 people per year. There would have to be a major leap to get there by 2030. It's possible because Celina added 10,000 and Prosper added 20,500 but I'd be stunned if there was a big push coming just based on the numbers. If I'd guess, I would put it around 2035, only because I'd want to see to the next census growth in the area. to see how much it continues to trend.
  3. As long as the number goes up like it has Gunter is going to stay D2. If it stays close to the same or or whatever reason goes down, Gunter will be D1
  4. It's probably close but it's definitely not clearly -- he goes in backwards so that doesn't help and the official is literally right there. https://www.kxii.com/2021/09/11/gunter-28-whitesboro-6/
  5. They had agreed in the off-season not to play again. Pottsboro had been looking for a Week 3 for awhile, it didn't just start this week.
  6. Sometimes you take a game to fill a schedule -- I'm sure neither really wanted to play but it was a realignment year with Pewitt coming off a state runner-up finish and Celina getting to the second round, losing to the eventual runner-up and bringing back a bunch of kids. It's going to be tough to find X number of games, especially on the fly when you don't know how big your district is gonna be. Celina really got screwed in being in that five-teamer and needing to find six willing opponents.
  7. They are doing a community pep rally and showing off the high school Thursday night, so they moved everything to tonight to avoid the conflict
  8. For realignment two years ago, Sunnyvale was at 583
  9. Melissa is definitely going up; Anna is probably going to be close
  10. No accusations. The numbers are what the numbers are. It's just surprising considering the way things are going since 2015. There is always a lag time on stuff like that -- if Gunter's number stays around 350 or so then obviously the additions to the ISD are coming at the junior high / elementary levels and won't affect the high school until at least 2026, depending on what the cutoff is this time.
  11. Latest census put Gunter at 2,060, up 562 from the last one. Celina's growth has definitely slowed -- it's obvious that Prosper siphoned off a lot of what was headed their way.
  12. No conspiracy at all. The numbers are what the numbers are, and there are always different variables and factors. Considering the success of just about all the athletic programs the past five years, one would assume that there would be more settling there. The numbers in the surrounding districts are exploding -- I think people are going to be shocked at a couple of them and how much growth there has been since the last snapshot day. I'm sure it's a situation like with Anna -- Coach Heath and I talked about it when they were planning to build the new high school and their H.S. numbers weren't very big. But everyone moving into Anna with kids had a five-year old or a six-year-old and a four-year-old. It wasn't grades 9-12. It was only going to be a matter of time and here we are: For the 2012 realignment Anna turned in 578 and a decade later their number is going to close to double.
  13. Number went up 15 last time, so the assumption would be the cutoff goes to 365. Of course I find it interesting with all the growth around plus the success, the high school's only added 17 students over the last two years
  14. There's a better than good chance Gunter goes D-I in February
  15. If they make a 7A, the question will be -- how many of the 245 in 6A go to 7A, and then how many 5A Division I schools move into 6A to fill in the gaps? The math is tough when you have 245 in 6A, 251 in 5A and then drop to 188 in 4A Is 7A going to be the top 123, 6A have 122 and then keep 5A and 4A roughly the same? How much does that setup really benefit anyone? Are you going to evenly divide 7A, 6A, 5A and 4A into 171 teams in each class -- regardless of the travel concerns that would bring up?
  16. I don't think Melissa is a lock to go 5A. They only added 145 kids from 2018 to 2020 realignment and were still a little more than 250 away from the cutoff, which will go up slightly because it always does. Unless they have a monster freshman or sophomore class, they're going to stay 4A until 22024, when they and Anna will move up
  17. As someone who has watched Gunter extensively since this run started five years ago, I think their runner-up team in 2017 has been the best of the group. Just because you don't finish with a title doesn't mean it can't be better than teams that do. Every year is different -- I do think the 2021 version will be in the discussion talent-wise. There were a lot of freshmen and sophomores on the field and they only lost three seniors total off the roster.
  18. 19 of the 55 listed on the state title game roster were seniors Maxpreps shows QB is gone, leading rusher is back but the next three are gone, top two receivers gone and 9 of top 13 tacklers
  19. One of the main arguments against a shot clock is all the gyms that would have to fitted with shot clocks and the cost to do that.
  20. He has multiple years experience as an OC as well as being a former head coach, so I think that's why they went with him The softball coach has been there 16 years and had been the girls coordinator the last couple.
  21. He was not the OC and the head coach ran the defense, since he was the DC before he was elevated to lead the program.
