LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES

09.01.2012 - Coppell 41 Longview 8 - Gerald J. Ford Stadium

FULL GAME LOG

GAME CAPSULE:

Absolutely dominated. That is an appropriate phrase for how the Lobos of Longview felt after last season's 41-8 thumping handed to them by the Coppell Cowboys. In the first meeting between the two schools, Coppell took control early and never left off the gas as they jumped out to a 21-0 lead at the half. Longview's only offensive points on the night game at a last minute hail mary pass, already down 41-2. The Lobos came into the game ranked in the top 10 in the state but suffering losses early and often as star quarterback Bivins Caraway was knocked out of the game with a season ending injury in the 2nd quarter. The season that had such promise and hope for Longview was flushed away as soon as it began with the injury to their quarterback and injuries piled up as the season went along. Coming into this season, many players have seen action, including Junior quarterback Dezmond Chumley. The Lobos come into the game having seen their battered squad still good enough to reach the 3rd round before Austin Westlake ended their run. The loss to the Chaps was their worst playoff loss since 35-0 loss to Klein in the 1983 season. Longview and Coppell will shift over to Allen's brand new stadium, where later in the season the Cowboys will travel back to face the defending 5A Division I State Champions...a team they defeated in the 2012 season. The Lobos are 0-2 all-time in the city of Allen, previously losing to Allen in 2008 (21-7) and 2010 (24-20) at the old Eagle Stadium. Last season's opening loss to the Cowboys was the worst the Lobos had experienced since a 2000 loss to the two-time defending 5A State Champions, Midland Lee Rebels. The next season, coming in as the three-time defending State Champions, the Rebels fell to the Lobos. The Lobos are 3-1 in their previous 4 season opening games, including a 28-25 victory over defending State Champion, Allen at Lobo Stadium in 2009. Longview is 1-0-0 all-time on games played on August 30th, with the only game being played in 2002 against Marshall (a 42-14 win at Lobo Stadium). .

'07 already knows how me and just about every other Lobo poster on the 5A boards feel about this one.

 

We'll lose..just a matter of by how much. Coppell is stacked defensively.

I don't know if you're sandbagging or being serious anymore. [email protected] Trinity fans started this...lol

 

 

Btw...I think the lobos get revenge this year. Coach King will have those boys ready and I don't think the offense will make that many mistakes again. I think the lobos will win it in a close one.

Dunno what sandbagging is Pack. Sorry dude. lol

 

Definitely won't have near as much fumbles. Out of the 6 backs that had carries for us last season, Hasty was the most reliable with the rock. Don't think he fumbled once last season. Athlete has pure RB mechanics.

I know for a fact that there won't be as many mistakes by the Lobos this year against Coppell. They can't. It's a statistical impossibility.

The Mesquite game proved those statistics wrong.

Ah, the ol' Mesquite game. Better known as "the perfect storm".

 

 

Everything that could go wrong, went wrong in that game.

 

 

I just love it when we beat ourselves..

Coppel wins but not as much as last year. Both teams will probably make deep playoffs runs.

I will say this again.........I will NEVER bet against my Lobos, but I am not at all confident that this game is going to have a happy outcome. I believe that we have the talent necessary to take those Coppell guys to school. I am not at all certain that the execution and use of said talent will be enough, this early in the season. Please God, make me wrong!!!

 

 

GO LOBOS!!!

Good point. Having a lot of talent on the team doesn't matter against a team like Coppell, if the execution isn't there. It may take the lobos offense a few quarters to get going in a early game like this, especially if they have a lot of turnovers like last year. I'm hoping that the defense can keep them in it and they win it late. Good luck Lobos!

What's your prediction on the score? you picked a blowout in the poll.

About the same as the LP/JT game 42-21 type game in favor of Dallas.

I'd like to see Longview pull it out and rep East Tex with a W, but I think Coppell comes out on top. Like most have said, it should be much closer this year. Curious to see what Hasty can do.

As said in our thread over on the 5A board....most important thing is to escape with no injuries.

 

It completely wrecked out season last year after just a quarter and a half. Hopefully doesn't happen again.

I just hope we can escape the scrimmage without an injury.

 

Can't tell you how many times that's happened (Clark Orren in 2011, George Polk in 2010 etc)

 

Clark Orren plays for UT BTW, tried out for the team as a walk on last off season and made it. Would've been a beast for the Lobos..

Ditto. We lost a few key players to Westbrook last year...

i am confident we will pull this one out. there will be jitters and lack of execution on both sides bc it is the first game of the season for both teams. But the fact is our offense will be much better than the O that was on the field last year against coppell. There was a lot of inexeprience to begin with and then the injury to bivins just did us in.

 

But that was last year. This year we have experience in all the right places. Some on the Oline, QB, RB, WR. Last year the entire offense was pretty much new!! very different story this year. This offense is gonna score some points even early in the season. The D is where I am concerned but one thing we know is the DBs and Dline will be solid even in the first game. If the D can settle in and get some stops we will win this game.

 

Last year I admit we came in cocky and unprepared which spelled disaster from the outset. This year we will be ready for their blitzs and our guys know they are up against a very good team. They will be ready.
