2020-21 East Texas 5A Sports Thread


Recommended Posts

Have mentioned this a couple of times and no one has had much to say about it, because I guess they believe those high school seniors will remain loyal to their school.  IF they start the season in the spring, you WILL have some starting players, who would have played in the fall,  NOT be there for a spring football season.  They graduate early in December and head to college for college spring ball. They have nothing left to prove in high school or will stay to take the chance of getting injured. Maybe a couple of the best players for a team that you need and are counting on.  

Food for thought.

Someone from Whitehouse complaining about class and sportsmanship... That's irony. Sports or not.

Well "those" you spoke with really weren't paying very close attention then. While it wasn't a large score disparity it wasn't really that close of a call especially statistically.  Marshall

I posted this on another thread.... what do ya'll think?

It could buy us some more time perhaps.

Who says we have to be done before christmas????  NFL and NCAA play through the holidays.

Week 1: October 9th
Week 11: Dec 18 (end of regular season)
BYE WEEK OF CHRISTMAS
Bi-District: Jan 2 (everyone must play on Saturday)
Area: Jan 7-9
Region Semis: Jan 14-16
Quarterfinals: Jan 21-23
Semifinals: Jan 28-30
State Championships: Feb 3-6

thoughts?  

I would love for it to happen, but I just can't see it with basketball and soccer going on at the same time tbh.

I just want to play this year. No doubt. Seeing California switch to a spring schedule gives me hope that we might do something similar, but who knows with the UIL.

With some junior colleges are moving football to the winter/spring of 2021.......

Would something like this work for UIL if they had to????

Basketball- January to March (shorten the non-district portion of the schedule.  Jump in to district pla quick)
Volleyball- Jan to March
Football- Feb to May
Soccer- April to June
Baseball/Softball- May to July

---------------

The biggest problem with any form of football in the spring is how it impacts the fall of 2021.....

Could be a really short turn around for teams that play late into the playoffs.  Would only give a few months off between the two seasons...... that could be an issue for some. 

But other than that..... seems odd...but workable

Thoughts.....

Should've said something to this post instead of the other one. I love the schedule, though I think they would want to keep football and volleyball together.

When would track season be? I won't lie I don't follow it all too much. But I would imaging Feb to May would destroy the track season itself with so many competing in both.

Soccer in July would be hot hot hot, but one season wouldn't be the worst idea.

Spring football, I would think they would just do what they did this year. Make everyone take the extra scrimmage week etc.

So 5A/6A start on weekend of Sept 24th-26th.

First round is Dec 10th-12th.

State Championships will be in January.

I assume Longview's game with West Monroe is going to be called off now. I can't imagine Longview and Temple will meet at AT&T anymore either.

I'm guessing Marshall's game with Carthage is off now too with 4A and below starting on time.

Schedule mania coming up.

Whitehouse and Texas High have already posted on twitter they're looking for Week 2 games. Not sure who they had scheduled in those spots.

My big wonder is if they're gonna adjust the district schedule at all?

I don't remember when the Dallas county mandate was up, but we have what? West Mesquite, Highland Park and Wylie East that are in Dallas County? That could still make an impact on our season for sure.

This is pretty significant for the Metro area schools.

Pine Tree has a 4A scrimmages and 3 4A games. Jacksonville and Hallsville have several too. Those teams are scrambling this morning I would think. 

Just saw PT is looking for weeks 1 through 3 on twitter.

District 9-5A just needs to plan on playing 7 district games and forget non-district games. It would allow “ make-up” dates if play is suspended and have a better chance to having district playoff representives. Seems too late to schedule no district games in East Texas as many of those opponents are 4A.

Another thing I hadn't thought about, 2A-4A will be limited on stadium choices for the playoffs with 5 and 6a still playing regular games.

Might have to do a lot of home flips for playoff games I would think.

Interesting wording for basketball this year...

No Regional tournament, on top of tournaments/showcases.
