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

Why be a douche about it?  Nac doesn’t pick their district.  They compete where they are put... and they dominate.  just say congrats and move on.  Don’t see the point in trying to lessen thei

Longview knocks off Pine Tree, 6-4. 21-6 on the season. Seconded highest win total in the last 52 years for Lobo baseball.

Is that a better game for y’all? WM gave the Lobos some competition. 

I mean it didn't really matter. Louisiana is starting their season in October and I believe they're jumping right into district play.

I like playing West Monroe, they're great competition and one of the best programs in Louisiana year in and year out. They'll be back on our schedule at some point in the future I'm sure.

Better than playing a 9-game schedule for sure.

In Lufkin 👀

You know we're gonna end up meeting in the playoffs the next two years, someway...somehow. Sigh.

Fun times lol. You know I’m still happy from the LSU title regardless..
 

Plus i guess I’m the only one on here not expecting a full season. Definitely hoping for the best though. I miss sports

Sky view of Maverick Stadium.  New turf in complete.  Restroom renovations complete.  New stadium lights in place. 

There is also a quick view of the covered practice facility.  Should be completed in early November before district play is complete. 

Can also see a longshot view of Lady Mav field getting prepared for its turf installation.   Can’t see Mav field, but it’s installation is also underway.

Had to update.   The Frisco Wakeland scrimmage was moved from Athens to Sulphur Springs. 

Another year.... another tough non-district schedule.  The Mavs will face three defending district champs from last season that were a combined (31-4).

For the last few seasons Marshall has struggled in non district only to turn it on in district play.  

The Mavs are (31-2) in district since 2015 with 4 district titles in the last 5 seasons.  

Conversely.....they have gone (5-12) in non district in that same time span.  

That Includes Longview, Carthage, and Alvin Shadow Creek, who were a combined (95-13) when we played them.  

Taking those early lumps is no fun.  But I firmly believe they are part of the reason we have done so well in district.  I also think it’s aided in our two region semifinals appearances since 2015.  

Ready for another deep run in 2020!!!!!!

Little brother of Khalan Griffin, D1 player that was denied eligibility at JT a few years back, now at Longview.

Longview's 2023 and 2024 classes continue to gain even more strength.

I hear a certain coach in 9-5A isn’t playing nice about transfers that are leaving their home teams (mostly in DFW) to come to ETX to play football this fall instead of sitting the season out. 

He doesn’t seem to have a problem with cross town transfers, though.

But I guess that isn’t any of our business.

don't really get why they are leaving? Most big schools will be playing, with the exception of maybe DISD?

Mavchamp....what did you think about DCTF rankings for the district?

With the 50% capacity rule...... getting tickets to some road game could be a challenge for Mav fans.

Luckily ..........we have six home games this season thanks to New Caney moving the game to Marshall in lieu of the kickoff classic game next season down there.

I don't think McKinney North will be much trouble.  Large stadium.... and a long drive.  There should be plenty of seats.

Whitehouse and Jacksonville could be troublesome...... especially if the MHS band travels to those games.... which counts as part of a visiting teams 50% allotment.  MHS band will take up 200 seats.  Add in football and band parents..... and only a couple hundred seats will be left for general admission.  Both games are just a little over an hour drive.... so that's not too far.  Could make things interesting for GA fans.

Hallsville game will be the toughest.  Small visitor's side coupled with the short 10 min drive for Marshall fans.  Could be only a handful available. 

Sounds like some folks will be watching games though some chain-link fences.

Well it’s a good thing that the games will be online for those whom can’t make it to the game.

DCTF:
Marshall
Texas High
Pine Tree
Whitehouse
Nacogdoches
Mount Pleasant
Jacksonville
Hallsville

Honestly.... I think they nailed it other than flipping Texas High and Marshall for the district championship.

Don't get me wrong.... I think Marshall is more than capable of winning the district title, but I personally give the nod to Texas High because of their returning QB and that huge program win they got in Lufkin last season.  

I think Marshall's defense might be one of the best we've had....but until we are settled on the QB position.... I gotta give Texarkana the upper hand.  I could change my mind depending on how the season unfolds for each of us.

Pine Tree I think is a great pick for #3.  It's all going to come down to their defense on their ability to challenge Marshall and THS for the title.  If their defense continues their trend over the last few years..... #3 is their lot.  If it improves.... they could slip into that #2 slot.... maybe even be in the district title talk.

WH is a little shaky for me...but I give them a nod for #4 based on their consistency of making the playoffs.  BUT.... they lost a lot from last season.  Most of their offense graduated.... and their defense was shaky for years.  Going to test the coaching staff this season with all the new faces.

Nac could steal that #4 slot if WH stumbles.  But they have their own holes to fill.

MP needs depth.  Without it.... I think their struggles continue.  Playing both ways makes it hard on defense.  If they can get some depth... I think they can push WH and Nac for a playoff spot.

Jacksonville is hard to gauge.  They have athletes....but it just doesn't seem to be coming together for the Tribe yet.   Hoping to see them back to their winning ways soon enough.

Hallsville seems to have an uphill job ahead of them.  New system.... again.  More turnover.  Numbers are down in football from what I'm hearing.  From the outside looking in it appears the AD has accepted the mantra that HHS is a baseball school... and other sports are getting more love than football.  Hope I'm wrong.  I think the Bobcats are in for a long season.

Guess we will see how it pans out.  I've been wrong plenty of times before.  Been right a few times too.
