Of course they don't play. They literally don't. Their starters are out every week after the first quarter because of the absolute dreadful district they're in. Last week would be a weekly thing for us if we were in their district too.

Now, yes, Lancaster is a fantastic squad. They're #3 in the state for a reason. But they haven't played a single team all season that is worth a thing. This week will be just as ugly, playing a team that got in based off a coin flip chance.

But as you said in the previous post, worry about Lufkin first. Our road was always going to be ridiculously tough after we lost to Highland Park. Embrace the challenge and enjoy the season we have.

Beat Lp.

Well, you make some very, valid points. We'll talk more hopefully after the Lufkin game.

Man, I absolutely can't take this nonsense anymore from our "commentators". Brent Taylor JUST came in whispering loudly, ON AIR to Johnny Vaughn about 2-3 minutes ago, "Wake up! Wake up!" Smgdh.......

Lufkin O Line "Hold my beer"

Its truly remarkable what that dude has accomplished throughout his career at LHS. Broke freshmen rushing records....had nearly 900 total yards and 13 TDs as a 3rd string sophomore on that 2018 s

Longview is still 2 scores better than Lufkin even if they show up and play an ugly game. I think the magnitude of this rivalry and the familiarities of the programs will give Lufkin a chance to keep it close early. I’m telling ya though, I do not like Lufkin’s chances at all. I love the pack, and I drink a lot of purple kool aid but this is just common sense. I respect the Lobo program too much to even pretend like this should be a battle for them. I stand by my prediction. 
 

Lobos 49 

Pack 21

Longview just has to not turn the ball over. And not taking the ridiculously stupid penalties we took during the Temple and Highland Park games. Thankfully, we haven't done that too often recently, but still worrisome on that front.

9 false starts will forever haunt me.

I hope you have 19 false starts and 5 turnovers. I’m sure we’d still blow it by calling a flea flicker at the goal line in overtime or something 🤦🏻‍♂️

I hope everyone is safe who travels. 

If Longview takes care of business, they should win pretty handily. That said Longview has been known to NOT take care of business in the playoffs and this season, inexplicably. 

Plus, I have no delusions about us beating Lancaster or Denton Ryan. But first thing's first- Lufkin at Lobo Stadium.

Problem with this matchup is even when it looks like it should be lopsided, it ends up being close. Nature of the rivalry.

I voted Longview in a blowout but can see it being somewhat close as well....but I definitely dont see Longview losing it.

Yep. All bets are off when these teams play, especially in the playoffs. Remember in 2014 when they won the first matchup 44-14 and in the playoffs looked like they were going to romp us again, leading 28-0? They had literally outscored us 72-14 to that point in the season, but then we outscored them 43-14 in the last 2.5 quarters. Anything can happen.

I mean stick that Lufkin roster and coaching staff in North Mesquite gear....this is a route.

Do you reside in the North Shore school zone now?

Naw...several of my cousins played for them since 02. And I really became a fan after they came to Lufkin in the 08 season and invited me (a few of their fans on 6A forum) to a few games in the Houston area. We’re not 6A D1 or a rival, so i don’t see a problem with pulling for them.

None at all. I have family that went to Denton Ryan so I pull for them a lot. We’re allowed to root for other schools lol..

Longview will need to implode to loose this one. 

Agree....not confident at all in this staff and these seniors. Not just based on what I’ve seen on the field either. And Forget that rivalry bs y’all are talking about. I’ll be shocked if this one is close. But it’s 2020....

Just saw that Highland Park has a link for streaming of their game tonight against New Caney. Does that mean our game can be broadcast on Youtube like our other home games?

To see the meltdown from the Lobo faithful if they lost this one would be priceless lol.

I don’t think there would be a meltdown at all. There’s glaring weaknesses on this team. And it’s 2020.

Half of our games have felt like a freakin scrimmage, so I dunno.

Nothing that happens this season shocks me. Other than if Kaden didn’t break Talley’s record Friday.

I think we would surprise you this year. I can only speak for myself, but I am looking at these playoffs in 2020 as an extra game we were allowed to play. For ANY team this year, nothing was promised, for sure. So each week is a different positive addition to this season that I am surprised we got to see. 

WIN, LOSE OR DRAW......

ALWAYS LOBOS!

Yeah... That loss to Jesuit shouldn't have happened (defense uncharacteristically couldn't stop a nosebleed that night). Neither should the Midway loss (2 easy missed kicks in a row). 

Go back even further. Blowing the lead vs West Brook in the first round by fumbling inside their 20. 

Against Consol, 3 fumbles and an INT returned for a TD. 

Against Westlake 7 fumbles and 3 INT. 

Heck, having a punt blocked to deny us state. 

Fumbling twice and not fielding a kickoff against Lake Travis.

Losing to South Garland in 2003 & 2005 (neither should've been close games with our rosters/teams).

Five turnovers vs Lufkin in 2004. 

I get it- we've won a lot of games (can't argue with the results of the 2018 team- they got it done), but we've also lost several that we had no business losing, and I think it was more on us not taking care of business than anything.
