I think Ryan gets the win. I seriously wonder how Carthage would Match up against both these teams? I know they’re smaller but damn Carthage was really good this year!

Not trying to post too much in your guys thread, I know I’m just a small school fan 😂😂😂. But I don’t have anybody to follow anymore now that Carthage is done. Not ready to be done with HSFB. So the Lo

Bold move I like that. Not saying Longview doesn’t have a legitimate shot but Ryan is #1.

Just to clarify I picked Ryan....by 16...but I picked Longview to beat Lancaster last week...as evidenced in the link...

Oh no, don’t do that! We’ve been down that road before and I was a major contributor!

Longview boys, I will sit this one out.

TCU, us Bulldog fans greatly appreciate the compliment and confidence in our team, thank you!

I dont get the lack of respect angle at all......because some have the audacity to pick Longview to lose to the consensus #1 team in the state all of a sudden there's no respect? I'd say among the metroplex folks Longview has more respect than most out of area teams...this is literally the first time I've picked against them this year lol

Man, we are primarily talking about the lack of respect as far as coverage goes and that includes your boys at FoxSportsSW and the Dallas Morning News. If, we had've lost to Lancaster, y'all would STILL be talking about it today. When we bowed out to Dallas Jesuit unexpectedly last year in the 2nd round, we couldn't stop y'all from posting all types of highlights, commentary news articles both in the newspapers and online. 

All we are saying is this, bring that SAME damn energy you had last year when we lost to Jesuit IF we beat one of your beloved Metroplex area schools especially when we are in the same district with them. Y'all will talk, talk, talk all week and year long about certain area schools who appear to be head and shoulders above anyone as far as talent goes and then for some odd reason when Longview ends up busting y'alls favorites butt, y'alls microphones stop working, you get carpal tunnel syndrome when it's time to write an article where we come out victorious and your local TV affiliates act as if football season was never here to begin with.

You should hear them about Arygle over Carthage that routinely wins the State championship. Obvious bias and this is coming from a fan who doesn’t care for them lol.

Like I have told people DCTF knows where their cash flow comes from which is the DFW. It’s a business I understand you gotta get paid damn some stuff is blasphemous on some of their predictions or rankings LOL. A lot of DFW bias

After having lanscaster as top 3 team in state told me all I need to know about DCTF, strength of schedule doesn’t matter LOL. If you can put up 80 a game on some of the WORST teams in Texas every year then you are a top 3 team in the state in their eyes 😂😂😂. Let Longview Tyler or Lufkin play that schedule Lancaster played and bet you every single one of them would be all up our neck about how we ain’t played nobody!! But if it’s Lancaster or any other DFW teams plays that schedule then it’s considered straight domination lmao 😂😂😂. @Quick

If you see that from the statewide outlets you have a great points, but you can't expect the DMN to talk about Longview much...they dont cover Longview and will pander to their subscriber base. Just like the LNJ or any other local outlet, I can't speak for FSSW as I dont work there but we talk about Longview plenty at DCTF and you can guarantee that if Longview beats Ryan tomorrow they'll get much deserved credit....
