  1. I'm sorry. I don't buy the "this person or that person died from Corona Virus." Just because a person who "tested" positive for the virus and they later died from it, does NOT mean that the virus is the cause of their death. Consider a person who is 90 years of age; has two preexisting types of cancer, type-1 diabetes, and congestive heart failure (fluid build-up in their lungs). To say that the virus was the cause of their death - ESPECIALLY without a full post mortem examination (that's an autopsy for you Sooners out there) - would be like saying that a person who had been bitten by a mosquito and contracted encephalitis died from the mosquito bite, rather than the four gunshots to their chest! Sorry, again, I just don't buy it.
  2. What would y'all think about the NCAA (and thus Texas and the UIL) implementing the new XFL kickoff rules (especially how and where the opposing teams line up on the field? Would it help reducing injuries often caused by the high-speed hits (i.e. blindside blocks, blocks in the back, blocks below the knees, etc.) thus making football "safer?"
  3. Hearing a dem say one thing (i.e. "no one is above the law") all the while their Queen has committed so many felonies, the Prince (Biden) has committed multiple crimes of corruption throughout his political career, or that anything they say that President Trump, we conservatives, or Americans in general should do is the complete opposite of what they themselves do...
  4. The Briles leak was a "test" by powers that be at TISD to test the temperature of the public. They quickly found that he would not be a favorable pick so they have been working other avenues, unfortunately, money has been a big issue, but again (again from information inside the talks) has been some type of issue with their superintendent...
  5. Word is superintendent (along with some salary discussions) may be an issue in attracting a couple of certain high-quality coaches.
  6. While I personally have no dog in the hunt, you were referring to Liberty Eylau's well documented discipline issues, correct?... not some "hearsay" about La Vega, right?
  7. Well, yes. They played a home-home series the last two years and unfortunately due to the behavior of many players the game was indeed called.
  8. By my count at the start of the LaVega-Carthage game, I noted that they (La Vega) only had one senior start on defense and three seniors start on offense (two linemen and Kinne at QB). They have historically and will probably continue to play various kids throughout a game at multiple positions. I agree Regal, that La Vega should come back as the preseason # 1 in 2020. What I would like to know (and can't wait until the 202 DCTF magazine comes out this summer) is what will Argyle, Lampassas (who is projected to be in the same district as La Vega in 2020), and Decatur bringing back next year. I would also love to see La Vega and Carthage play a non-district game (much like La Vega and Liberty Eylau did the past two years).
  9. Well, in that specific game, they may have gone to the UIL. However, I know for certain that in four of the games played the two coaches selected and agreed to the crews that worked their games. With regard to the Mart-Hamlin game, I did hear one coach (from the district Mart was in) that they didn't care what chapter worked their game.
  10. Not necessarily. Only if the two coaches cannot agree on a chapter and crew.
  11. I was looking at the number of starters that they had this year that were underclassmen and I believe that they should back in the hunt again next year!
  12. July 2004 Don't post as much as I used to....I used to too many people off I guess...LOL!
  13. Big game in TAPPS on Saturday...Cedar Hill Trinity Christian (Deon Sanders' son) versus Bullard Brook Hill at Athens. Kickoff at 7pm.
  14. Not sure if you've seen the team from Waco (Connally), but they have four D-I commits and a tough, physical team. That would be a heck of a match up!
  15. Except that they will be from Gregg County, not from Smith County...
  16. Saw him in a scrimmage earlier this fall and he was simply impressive.
  17. I understand it was a joke... ...and they don't give out the addresses, they simply say that the officiating crew assigned to the game is out of the Longview Chapter...or wherever...
  18. Or maybe he just listened to the PA announcer say where they were from?...
  19. CONGRATULATIONS Smoaky on 17 great years of sports information with Smoaky.com!
  20. If one would become a Texas Football Insider, they would not have to complain or search for it! Just sayin'...
