  1. I just want to clarify a few things I've seen posted here from our Amarillo friends. A) Longview is not a "Metroplex" team. That is an offensive term to us. We are 120 miles away from the Metroplex. We play Metroplex teams in district and tend to beat Metroplex schools in the playoffs. Matt Diggs does not cover our team. He knows about us because we beat the teams he covers. B) Longview does not run a spread offense. Longview runs a pro-style offense. They don't run the hurry up. It is very methodical. There's no one player or particular concept to key on. And I will agree th

  2. I'm kinda old fashioned,if you harm my family...I'll make you pay personally and no amount of reasoning can protect you from me...I am charged with the protection of my family and that includes their education and upbringing.As saddening as it sounds,I will,even at the cost of my own destruction,exact retribution for your crimes against mine . And there is no place to run or hide to evade this enevetibility... If every human out there knew that there was zero chance of escaping a brutal retribution for a crime committed and witnessed by others,there would be less violent crimes by silly e

  6. That's great to hear man. I love seeing programs with great coaches that can get great things out of their kids. I honestly feel like we under-achieved this season, as I think we did in 16. People here are content with a 4th round exit, but I feel like our team could have accomplished to much more. I don't ever want to feel content, because that means I don't expect improvement. We played a tough pre-season schedule but we should have competed in all those games. We did get a few things figured out in the post-season, but still showed up Saturday looking like we didn't want to be there.

  7. This is an ubsurd statement. Players are taught at a young age what the triple option offense is. Especially in East Texas because there is still a lot of teams in East Texas that still run it. Might not be out of the wishbone, flex, or wing but can be run out of shotgun, i form and of course power i. Which of course my alma mater MP ran out of in the 90s. Longview i think might still run a variety of the triple option. And Longview's corners are very fast. Im pretty sure King will have them ready for your offense. Take for example Georgia Tech and Navy. They run out of the wing t triple

  8. Hell every now and then, we'll even run some triple option stuff too just like older John King teams did. Haynes has a few TD runs on option plays this year. Longview has the most diverse offense in the state. Have not seen a team any classification run the number of sets Longview does all year.

  11. Taggart is one of those "In the right place at the right time" kind of guys. He is kind of like that Corporate guy who just happened to meet the boss in the bathroom by accident and left an impression that got promoted before he got fired for poor performance. I mean, he "had Oregon on the way up." and he "Got the guys to South Florida" but he didnt really do anything with them...

  12. Man up the receivers, account for the other skill players, clog the gaps inside and force them to abandon the fullback dive part of the option, spy the qb, man up the pitch man, be disciplined.... easier said than done, but there's a reason not many true triple option attacks make it this far... I agree that we need a hat on the qb EVERY PLAY. I expect a few broken assignments but it is doable. Lister and writt will need to have their best games of the year And these guys are true gamers. I'm excited for another great game.

  15. Nac. only had like 9 Seniors(only 3 starters), everyone else was Sophomores and Juniors. 5-5 after a 1-9 season is a 4 game improvement and a playoff birth. JV wasn't great, but most of the good sophomores were on Varsity. Haven't heard a word about anyone going anywhere as of yet, there has been rumor for the past 3 years he was leaving after each year. I would guess he at least finishes off the group that are going to be seniors next year. When he does decide to "re-retire" it will be from coaching only, I am sure he would remain the AD.

  16. Yeah, I don't think you finish top 4 and you don't make the playoffs. You got smashed at home by a very mediocre Kilgore team that half our district routed this year. Maybe this is true in past years but definitely not this year.

  17. There have actually been a few signs. Hey Lobos tell your girlfriends you'll be free next SATURDAY LONGVIEW??? more like LONG shot. I don't see any harm in these honestly, but I've seen what happens when teams say/do disrespectful things towards the lobos and I'm sure the players have seen these by now.

  18. Lord....this is the main reason i don’t post in the political part of the forum anymore. No reason to come in this thread and post about BLM or anything else like that. This kid lost his life from his own family member. Not sure what happened, but some little agenda shouldn’t be pushed right now. Keep that mess in the part of the forum. Prayers to the football team, Fort Bend community, his friends and his family. Terrible news.

  22. Also consider Army, who IS a strong team this year who took Oklahoma into overtime. GT beat Virginia Tech, and I'm pretty sure they went 0/1 passing in the game. Yes, the triple option is great at neutralizing a talent disparity. It uses a lot of double team blocks, reads, and misdirection. That's why the service academies run it- they don't have the future NFL talent on their rosters so they have to do SOMETHING to level the playing field.

  25. This is simply my humble opinion and nothing else. For Tascosa, this game is State! We do see Longview as the best team remaining. You have to understand that even the most ardent Rebel fans didn't see this coming (where we are at today) and we are excited and maybe a little over zealous. Amarillo hasn't had a dog in the hunt since 1992 and West Texas in general has been about as dry as the drought we have been having over the past 20+ years. Having said that, Tascosa is proud, and we have finally proven to ourselves that we can play on this level. All three of the last teams we have pla

  29. Correct. I like you, man. You're not like some of the other fans who, when challenged on their points, immediately retreat to a straw man of "LONGVIEW ARE GOD'S GIFT TO FOOTBALL AND TEHY WIN BY 50" like some others. You're right- we can talk ourselves til we're blue in the face and it'll mean nothing come Saturday.

  31. 1986 was the last year we played Kilgore. Not sure how accurate that post is about him playing Longview, but if he did it would’ve had to of been in 85 or 85 cause those were the only years in the 80s we played. Longview had many losses that year, including a loss to PT. But still somehow made it to the quarters against Plano. I know lots of Lobo fans feel we were screwed out of that one.

  37. The reason I fell in love with Lobo football was because I love smashmouth football. This team is special in that they can and will play smashmouth, but can also do other things. we can talk about trying to stop the Tascosa running attack, but has anyone been able to stop Longview's running attack. I mean if they even dared to get meredith a little more involved, I can only imagine how dominate that 3 headed monster would truly be.

  38. One thing everyone is not talking about. Longview has a GREAT offense of their own. Great offense! Best in the storied history of this program. Tascosa will have to stop them.

  39. This is true! The Rebels are not the same team that struggled with Abilene for a 7 point win! My fear is that Tascosa will view this game like Ryan and will do well until challenged! The defense is MUCH better than when they started. LB Moore has grown into his role and is extroidinarly dangerous. Boogy feeds off teams thinking Doerue is simply a decoy and the more they challenge him, the harder he plays! Question is can Longview stay focused and disciplined enough to stay on assignment regardless of what they see? If they can, they will stop the triple-o, if they can’t, we will see the

  41. The point I was trying to make with the fake QB example was that a lot of coaches now want to run the flavor of the month offense, even if it means running an offense that your kids are ill equipped for. I agree you aren’t going to win any games with the kid I described but yet I see it on a yearly basis now. I don’t agree that you don’t need to have speed to run the spread effectively. The whole point is getting guys in space and being able to use their speed. That’s really the only way to use that space. With all the power versions of it now you don’t necessarily need a QB that is a fa

  44. Since district play started, and including playoff games as well, Gunter is beating teams by an average of 35.6 points per game. The teams they are beating are winning their games by an average of 6.6 per game. So, Gunter swings these games by an average of 42.2 points. Canadian is beating teams by 33.7 who are used to winning by 5.9 - for a swing of 39.6 points. Since Canadian wins by an average of 33.7, and Gunter "swings" their opponents out of their average game by 42.2 points, that would favor Gunter by 8.5 points. Gunter wins by an average of 35.6, and Canadian "swings" thei

  46. Poor job or not and money or not. Center is a small 4A. Not a Big 5A/6A in a big ISD like Dallas Or Houston. No way they hire a qualified HC. A good coach isn’t coming into a situation where he isn’t over the entire program. Whether that be a seasoned vet or younger coach trying to climb the ladder. There are to many variables that go into winning (hiring/appraisal of coaches, off-season program, ect..) that he cannot control with him not being the AD also.

  47. They must get the numbers back up. They have only had 2 teams the last 3 seasons and that is unacceptable at the 4A level. There are so many games lost for the young kids in those 3 years. It was not that long ago that they had over 100 out for football now that number is in the 70 range. Have heard a very bad rumor that hey are splitting the AD/Football job and the AD might be a coach of another sport. I sure hope this is not the direction they choose because the Huntington blueprint of days past is not what you need to follow.
