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

I dont think you understand our business model very well if you think our cash flow comes just from DFW lol 

Yes we are based in DFW, but I know both Tepper and I make it a point to ensure the state is covered and I think we do a good job at it. Was Lancaster mis-ranked?? Absolutely....thats a miss and I personally had concerns about Lancaster being ranked so high...but it was a miss, nothing more, nothing less

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!

I'll defer to Anti/LoboFan, but my snap assessment is:  Allen: most system experience Grant: most overall talent Tutt: best passing mechanics

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.

Where have you heard us at DCTF say that?? Tepper and I both have been getting the business from Argyle people all week because we both were asked who we thought would win an Argyle/Carthage game and we both said Carthage lol

Was talking previously years. This is no denying this. I don’t even like Carthage and I noticed it.

There may have been a year or two we had Argyle ranked above Carthage early on etc and I'm sure you can cherry pick a time or two here and there...but thats probably more of a product of a slower start from Carthage in that year and Argyle being really sharp early (which they tend to be)...early season rankings are always super fluid....

 

Considering Argyle's post-season success matched up with Carthage's, it's foolish to think those years we've placed Argyle above Carthage or talked about them more...just seems like people remember their perceived slights much more, which is probably more human nature than anything else

Not that your cash flow comes from there but it’s your biggest market and you can’t deny that. Houston is big for you, east Texas and west Texas  don’t bring much in for you as much as those places, so you are gonna plaster your big market teams more just like the NBA and NFL would, it’s purposely done because they are your money makers. But like I said I respect your work, but trust me I understand that everyone has someone to answer to someone unless you are the owner. So we all to cater to someone.

Mr. Chad Elsey is silly, how in the world could anyone with an objective eye and honest assessment of the teams ever believe Argyle would beat Carthage by two touchdowns this season? Hilarious.

Yo yo yo yo y’all it’s Christmas time and you know what time it is!! It’s time for MY prediction, the Christmas edition. Give it to me!

Longview got this bad boy in a win although it will be a close one! Bet expect Hale to ball out! I expect Meredith to show up! I expect that defense to LOCK UP! and you know what John King brings every week with his veteran coaching!

so I expect this too be a close game but Longview squeezes out to comfortable two-three touchdown lead thru the game around the third. 
 

give me Longview 45- Denton Ryan 28! Book it!

Back to the game this thread is about, I picked Denton Ryan in a close one, but want Longview to win if even by just one point.

Maybe the LHS QB can be efficient and accurate and the Lobos can control the pace of the game and get the win.

Ryan has playmakers, but so does Longview.

Exactly...we are a very diverse company, much more diverse than you realize. Editorial revenue is only a small part of our company profile. Would I say from a subscriber standpoint is the largest percentage of our client base from DFW? Good chance, but that revenue pales in comparison to our statewide clients who work with us because of our coverage of the state as a whole.

I don't always agree with DCTF but I am a subscriber and have listened to and read a lot of their stuff and can say that they are always respectful of Longview and give them their props...one of the best convos surrounding the program was the one leading up to the Tascosa game...you could tell they felt the opportunity for Longview as we all did...the rest is history...the follow up coverage after we won the title was awesome...

while they definitely did not pick us this week, they didn't shut the door on a Lobo win but recognized what King and the staff has....this is our biggest test in years and we are a year early...this is going to be a great game tomorrow but it will take our best effort of the year to pull it off
