As they say, you can throw the records out the window. The Rams are 13-6 vs the Dragons this century. Two of those wins (‘01 and ‘15) came at Ram Stadium. The Rams have won three in a row, including back to back shutouts (31-0 both years) in Shelbyville in ‘17 and ‘18. The Dragons opened the season by routing Beckville before getting blasted by Sabine. The Rams have won impressively over Deweyville and Ore City. It appears that Shelbyville is still a team in search of an identity. Are they a spread team? A single wing team? Can they find some consistency on defense? Meanwhile, the Rams are sticking to the gritty, no-nonsense smash mouth style that has seen them improve their win total every year under Coach Wade Lawson (31-15 since taking over in 2015). These kids and parents all know each other, and a years worth of bragging rights are on the line. The Rams have won 15 straight at home, dating back to the 2016 home opener. Who y’all got and why?

Joaquin took a little longer to get rolling against OC then I thought. Shelbyville actually handled Sabine just fine for a bit before a bad fumble over rule erased what could’ve been a 14-0 lead. Will be a ton of energy in this one. Should be a good gauge for both squads

Usually throw the records out in rivalry game. JOE has several in a row against Sville with shutouts consecutively. Sville gonna stack the box and send the house every play. If Joe lineman can get a piece of the blitzers the Joe can have big plays. Not sure what Sville will try on offensive. Could be close early but Joe experience kids will pull away late IMO

That play was on yalls side of the field so I didn’t get a good look. The one ref did immediately start pointing to the ground. Our first fumble on the kickoff I didn’t agree with at all. I kinda wish y’all would have went up 14-0 so I could see how our guys would respond. Ultimately I think the lack of depth would have caught up to Shelbyville either way. As for the refs both coaches were on the field a lot. As for this game I’ll go with Joaquin.

Villagegenius in my opinion that one fumble would not have helped enough to win the game. As I have said before our D-line for the most part controls the line of scrimmage and with the rotation we have on the line the boys are still fresh in the 4th quarter. This game just proved my point. The second half was all Sabine defense and we were missing one of our better lineman to injury.  I will say that Shelbyville is much improved and if yall can add a passing game coupled with your running back yall could surprise some people. Anyway good luck the rest of the season. Im taking Joaquin in this one.

Once upon a time in a galaxy far far away this used to be a heated rivalry. Not sure if it still is. Shelbyville used to be some of the toughest suckers and meanest suckers to play against. I look for this to be a battle early on. With that being said playing the rams at home these day proves to be a tall order. 

I say Rams win 35-14

Thank GOD we finally have a Shelbyville fan that wants to smack talk. What makes you think they will be too tough for the Rams? The way they’ve whipped out butts since these kids have been in high school? Wait....... no that’s not it. Maybe you’re feeling confident over the beat down y’all put on Sabine........ no that ain’t it either. Let’s hear it.

Fair enough. Presently, Dragons only exist in fairy tales. I’ll take a hard-headed mountain goat over a nonexistent fantasy lizard all day long and twice on Sunday.
