  1. Thank you all for your love and dedication to this country. For all of us who didn’t serve, make sure you go out of your way to shake a vets hand and thank him or her. I put this here instead of the political forum. It can get a little hairy over there. Just like we all love high school football, we should all show thanks and respect to our vets. My wife’s grandfather is a 103 year old WW2 vet and it makes him feel 70 years younger when someone thanks him. It’s important, so do it. God bless you vets.

  2. There are a few things wrong with this for me. First, you aren't comparing the same thing. Setting aside whether or not one agrees with the mercy rule in 6-man, it is a higher scoring game inherently. Also, generally speaking, the reason schools play 6-man football is because they don't have the enrollment to play 11-man - ergo, they don't really have much in the way of playing backups and even then, if the other team just isn't very good, it doesn't stop the scoring anyway. This is not to say that I agree with the mercy rule, but merely to point out that you are comparing two very different games from a scoring perspective. Second, when a team wins by 85 in 11-man, it makes a few waves. People hear about it and talk about it. If the margin of victory is higher, it makes the news, so there is not some epidemic of 85+ point blowouts happening that needs fixing - otherwise, they would not be noteworthy when they happen. Third, a mercy rule deprives playing time for kids on the winning side that otherwise not get to see the field. Remember, we are talking about KIDS playing a GAME here. Some of the more dominant teams can put up 60 points in a half - and for the most part, these teams send in the second team in the second half of these games and might get one or two more scores. These kids would not get to play if you add a mercy rule. Fourth, when the winning team sends in the second, third, JV call-ups after having the game in hand, a mercy rule would deprive kids on the losing side the chance to play football against a squad more on their level. There is not much fun in playing against a team who doesn't allow you to gain a yard while scoring on you every third play. If the mercy rule existed, that's all those kids would experience. Let's be honest, the teams that are losing by 85 points are losing big to everyone. If there were a mercy rule, none of them would get to play meaningful football. Only when the backups come in do they get to experience running a play that gains actual yardage. At that point in the game - down by 40, 50, 60, etc. They might as well be down by 100. The score is arbitrary at that point. The mercy rule would only add insult to injury. You're not good enough to finish this game, kids. Sorry. That's not a message I would ever want to send to kids who just want to play a game. So, no - it is not time for a mercy rule. EDIT : I have gone back the last 10 years looking at the rankings for the largest margin of victories in all classifications of 11-man football. Using 85 because that's the number you used - the number of games in ALL classifications of 11-man football for the last 10 years that had a margin of victory of 85 or more is 18. This is a tiny number. In 2020, there were 1,085 11-man football teams in Texas. Generally speaking, each of those teams plays 10 games. This would be 10,850 team games. Since two teams play in each game, the actual number of games would be half that - so 5,425 games. Plus there are 567 (63 per classification * 9 classifications) playoff games played each year for a total of 5,992 games per year - - times 10 years, and we get close to 60,000 11-man football games that have been played in the last decade. Of these 60,000 or so games, in only 18 of them was the margin of victory 85 or more.

  4. Austin is an absolute train wreck of a city. Thanks to being overtaken by communists, violent crime is skyrocketing. If the UIL wants to use some of the $$ they rob from schools every year to build a multi-sport complex to host events, great. But there’s at least ten cities in Texas better suited to hosting it than Austin.

  6. Each year before the bi-district round of the UIL state playoffs the question about the number of teams in the playoffs is brought up. The reasoning behind having 4 teams from each district is to make sure that deserving teams assigned to a very difficult district will have a chance to advance even if their district record is not one of the top two in the strong district. So, the stats from this year's first round are as follows: 5A D1: 25% of the 4th place teams won over a district champion. 25% of the 3rd place teams defeated a 2nd place team 5A D2: 12.5% of 4th place teams beat district champions. 43.75% of the 3rd place teams won. 4A D1: 31% of 4th place teams beat a champion. 37.5% of the 3rd place teams beat a 2nd place team. 4A D2: 12.5% of 4th place teams were succesful. 43.75% of 3rd place teams came out on top. 3A D1: No 4th place team beat a district champion. 43.75% of 3rd place teams won. 3A D2: 18.75% of 4th place teams advanced. 37.5% of 3rd place teams moved on. 2A D1: 6% of 4th place teams won. 37.5% of 3rd place teams advanced. 2A D2: 12.5% of champions lost. 31% of 3rd place teams beat the runnersup. In 6A D1, 31% of the 2nd ranked teams won and in D2 the number of 2 seeds winning was 40%. Overall, 5A and down saw 26% of the lower district places winning. The lower ranked team won 31% of the time when all classes are considered. *I'm not a math guy and I could've made a mistake or two in the calculations, but overall I think we can see that in a winner take all or two teams advancing we'd have about 30% of "deserving" teams sitting at home.

  12. lmao. He did the same last week as well against Tyler. I actually thought, after listening to the whole broadcast, that this was Brent's best called game in years. I would imagine last Friday was his last one. After all the games they called, what is 40+ years I believe?, do wish they would do something to honor him and Johnny. Brent and Johnny Pressbox or something along those lines. Those boys live and breathe Lobo football, even if their age has hampered the broadcasts in recent years.

  13. I’m just praying that our Lobos understand that this game IS a REVENGE game for Lancaster. A lot of those kids from last year remember what happened last year and we would be foolish to come into this game thinking ahead to next week and get “McNorthed” again. It CAN happen and it WILL if we aren’t 100% focused on what’s in front of us right now - The Lancaster Tigers. If I am not mistaken, they have Duncanville’s former offensive coordinator as their newHead Coach this year so, I expect a more extensive playbook this year with a few more wrinkles that we’ve NEVER seen before. John King can NOT afford to let this game get close by any means and start trying to exchange “blows”. Lancaster has too much team speed offensively for us to get into the tit for tat touchdown exchange. The mindset needs to be to deliver Lancaster total humiliation from the jump!

  14. Man looking at the region match ups looks to be some good damn games! Hell would it be crazy to say the state champ is coming outta this bracket?? I think Lobos have a punchers chance but they have to be able to run the ball and protect the play-action. And also again...shout out and respect to mcnorth for softening up college station for their next opponent. 49-0 really showed this region the blueprint for beating CS...

  15. This 103 years young soldier stormed the beaches of Normandy. He has all kinds of cool memorabilia. He respects the English, thinks the French are light footed, and would not pee on a Russian if they were on fire. 3/4 of a century later, he still has a hard time talking about buddies that didn’t make it back across the big pond. I said “big pond?” one time early on in my marriage. He said “the Atlantic dumb ###!”.

  17. Laying all jokes aside .. me and my daddy is just grateful and blessed to be able to go to a game, much less a playoff game.. last september we lost my momma .. and I pretty much gave up on everything.. didn’t care about doing anything.. and for sure didn’t feel like going to a football game.. without God I’m not sure where I’d be tonight, or if I’d even be here at all .. i thank God for being with me .. cause I still miss her everyday so much .. we all do .. so im just excited to be going Friday night with my daddy to checkout the tomato bowl .. win or lose I’ll be happy good luck to both teams !

  22. I posted this on Facebook and thought I'd share it here too. Carthage fans, not saying it would have made a difference but one clear advantage CS had on us was the energy of the crowd. I remember seeing our boys trying to get the crowd going and for the most parts our fans just sat there. CS built off the energy of that crowd and played great football, but watching on Ctown's side was a boring atmosphere. That's the only way to put it. Felt like a regular season game IMO. I'm sorry but this was a disgrace. Always had been to me and we missed an opportunity to help our boys.

  29. If they had a dome in Austin… I think it would be a conversation worth having. But they don’t. Sitting out in the elements for 3 games a day for 3-4 days in December doesn’t sound all that appealing.

  30. West Rusk doesn’t get to 12-0 and into the 3rd round if they are a bad/soft football team or whatever else negative people want to throw at them. Daingerfield doesn’t get to 10-2 and the 3rd round if they are simple/just out athleting people or whatever else you want to throw at them. The 4 teams left in region 3 are all VERY good football teams. It’s the only region left with all 4 district champions. You’d be hard pressed to find a more loaded regional final 4 in the state.

  33. I think road losses to top 15 teams with the back up qb are treated differently regardless of conference. Like no recruit is changing his mind on OU right now because like A&M its a ranked team road loss... Its not like losing to a 1-8 team at home is what I'm saying.

  37. BTW, for those of you who aren’t aware, Larry Allen was honored last month by being inducted into the Carthage Athletic Hall of Honor for his 30-plus years of being the Voice of the Bulldogs on KGAS. Having attempted some play-by-play announcing of Carthage football more than 40 years ago, I marvel at Larry’s ability to keep detailed statistics while also doing the play-by-play. Congratulations to Larry on this recent honor!
