I have prepared some stats for those of you that like to look at those kind of things. Although I am an Argyle homer, I want to be educated for this game as a fan so that I can try to look at the game objectively prior to the game. All DOD friends welcome in the Argyle section to shake those "shakers" with us!

Fairfield
Opponent W/L 84-91
Opponent Average State Rank 426.6
Average Points Scored 57.3
Average Points Given Up 9.2
State Rank 19
National Rank 141

Argyle
Opponent W/L 106-73
Opponent Average State Rank 321.9
Average Points Scored 51.7
Average Points Given Up 12.7
State Rank 11
National Rank 84

By the looks of the above numbers, both teams have dynamic scoring offenses and shutdown defenses. Upon further analysis, Fairfield has not played nearly the teams that Argyle has, on the whole. Fairfield's best 4 wins came against Navasota (ranked 68 in TX), Rockdale (ranked 134 in TX), Connally (ranked 141 in TX), and Sinton (ranked 174 in TX). Argyle's best 4 wins came against Graham (ranked 30 in TX), Gilmer (ranked 37 in TX), Nolan Catholic (ranked 96 in TX), and Celina (ranked 111 in TX). Argyle has more quality wins than Fairfield. Now, this may not mean that Argyle will win, obviously, but it does mean that Argyle has been tested by teams closer to their talent level more often.

Going to keep digging into the numbers... Go Eagles! ... Argyle that is. smile.gif

Good stuff ADK! Many great weeks in the books and a great week ahead! Are you able to attach a poll to the thread as well? How bout them Argyle Eagles?!? With a healthy battle tested contingent at the SC this week along with perfect conditions, I like our chances! And I am not alone in believing and saying that this is Argyle's year!

Argyle by 7

Although Fairfield may be the first team that can take them to the wire this season. The match up in the trenches is priceless. Fairfield's speed can match Argyle's. It'll come down to execution. What a great match up for the State Championship. One I picked would happen in week 2.

This will be Fairfield's toughest test by far. I'm hoping freestone county wins the title.

Played Fairfield in scrimmage and they have some hosses,I think Fairfield has one of those classes that most schools wait for and they have reached the game that everyone wishes for but Argyle is very experienced in playoffs and considered a power but more importantly they are just a talented and great team. Argyle 35-28

Fairfield run has been easier all you have to do is look at the schedule and check the records. Only time will tell if that makes a difference.

Fairfield has took care of business with every game that they have played. They did not control their scheduling. We will see what happens on Friday.

Strength of schedule always makes for an interesting debate. A teams historical past is usually brought into a lot of those same debates as well. But the fact is that 179 other teams in 3A failed to make it to the Championship game. Argyle, Fairfield, Carthage, and Kilgore ALL EARNED their spot. The one's that seem to have the strongest opinion that Fairfield will not even compete with Argyle or that they shouldn't be in this game, have not witnessed what this team has been through and the heart that they played with this special season. They have under estimated no one all season, and I don't think that they will start now. With an outstanding coaching staff and the whole community behind them, they will be ready. Don't make the mistake of under estimating them!

Fairfield is for real no doubt but so is Argyle.Argyle has knocked off nearly everyones favorite to win it all before the season in Gilmer.Fairfield took out the defending State Champs on their home field.Good luck to our Freestone County neighbors as they will play their strongest foe yet on the biggest stage there is.
