  1. Once in my life I want to get to the RRR in THE cotton bowl.
  2. If there was ever a year for DeKalb to get the W this is it
  3. My personal thoughts are I like what Carthel has done with the culture. I like what Carthel has done with the defense. I do not like what Carthel has done with the offense. 2 years in a row you can squarely place the BOTPW squarely on the offenses shoulders due to poor 2nd half performances. Too much talent and too many better schemes/systems out there to consistently be average on offense.
  4. He has an OC. Matt Storm. Been with him for awhile, since A&M Commerce I believe.
  5. McGuire had the gameplan that played to win the game in all 3 phases. On offense, they took advantage of 4th down when it wasn’t ludicrous to do so. On defense, they played a bunch of press man to take away the easy stuff and brought pressure at Card (a backup QB). They never wavered when down in the 2nd half and trusted the plan. Texas should have had the same defensive gameplan as Tech. Dare the backup QB to beat you with pressure in his face and tight coverage. Instead, as has been noted, Texas didn’t consistently send pressure and didn’t consistently play tight coverage. The result? Poor yard per play/attempt sure, but when Tech showed they were content to take the short stuff and go for it on 4th down, that approach was no longer sound. Tech game-planned like a team trying to win, Texas game-planned like a team trying not to lose.
  6. I think Waskom will be too much for EF. If you are EF I’d think your goal is to come out of this one healthy and ready to play out the remainder of the schedule. Big game with Harmony after this which could decide 3rd place.
  7. Carlisle has looked really good. They should be fine in district if they bring their A game. Tenaha has the upper hand for 2nd. Would be shocked if anyone below them knocks them off. Cushing is a step down from the top 2 for sure, but should take the 3rd spot. Mt E and Overton battle it out for the last spot. Not sure who is gonna take that one.
  8. Joaquin always tends to lose a game in district that they shouldn’t. I think this sets up as that type of game. The Rams should win…but.
  9. You are what your record says you are…but in high school ball who you have played does matter. Daingerfield 2 losses are 2 losses that just about everyone would collect in this region. Isn’t this right about the time last year that Daingerfield started dropping 50 on everyone until their QB got hurt? And defensively…who in this district, or region for that matter can put on the field what Timpson and Center did on offense? I think you’ve got a chance to see the Tigers start to get on a roll and get the engine running on all cylinders.
  10. Winner of this one gets a big leg up in the race for the playoffs. Elysian Fields has lost to 2A playoff teams. QC has thumped 2A non playoff teams. Hard to get a good judge on this one.
  11. 34-3 with the backup QB after you withstood UTSAs best punch over the first quarter plus of action. As has been mentioned…UTSA has a really good coaching staff. They have had this gameplan set for a while more than likely and just fine tuned it after watching the first 2 games. Over the course of normal play, they scored 10 points. You can’t discredit the trick play, but Texas played it about as good as you can and just missed the PBU by literally an inch. I know it felt like a bend but don’t break approach on D…but I personally thought it was a good plan. UTSA quarterback is a dude, you can’t just blitz like crazy on him can he can be deadly out of the pocket. You also can’t just leave your DBs on islands all game long either because the UTSA receivers are really good. Looked like Texas plan was to try to keep the big play from happening and dare a below average OL to overpower them in the run game. Harris and his receiving core are power 5 caliber. The OL and run game this year, not so much.
  12. 4 weeks in this is where I’m at barring injuries. 1) Tatum. Nobody in the district can throw it alone like the teams that exposed Tatums secondary. And ain’t nobody in this district got the defense to consistently stop Tatum. It won’t be easy by any means, and they may not do it going 5-0, but I think Tatum winds up with the 1 seed. 2) Gladewater. Still think they are going to be ok. Too much talent to not be in the mix of things. Come out of Tatum healthy and they should be capable of running off the last 4 in a row. 3) Atlanta. Most impressed by their improvement for sure. Don’t think they have the offensive skill or scheme to knock off either one of Gladewater or Tatum. Think they will out physical Jefferson. They’ll have to be locked in, but new coach seems to have them heading in the right direction. 4) Jefferson. One of the more frustrating teams overall. Look like they have a bunch of talent, but haven’t handled good competition well. Think they sneak in but it could very well come down to game 10 against Sabine for the final spot. 5) Offense will keep them in some games, defense will wind up being what costs them. Good enough though on offense that if you make mistakes, they can be in it till the end. 6) White Oak. Bring on fishing season.
  13. As for this game? I’ve got no clue. You can’t really compare scores against similar opponents, even though that’s what everyone likes to do. Center has some really good players. Daingerfield has some really good players. Both teams have played really good defense one game, really average defense one game, and really not good defense one game. If I remember from the North Desoto game thread Center had several turnovers that dug them in a hole. As cliche as this sounds, it probably boils down to who tackles better in space, and who makes the least amount of turnovers. They go about it different ways, but at the end of the day both teams look like they are trying to isolate their playmakers in space in 1 v 1 matchups.
  14. From watching on YouTube when it was streaming, I’d say Timpson does what great teams do better than just about any other team I’ve seen in recent years, capitalize on opponent mistakes. Poor kick/kick coverage? Boom Bussey to the house right before halftime. Turnover? Timpson drives and scores Muff kickoff? Timpson drives and scores. Give them a drive to start at your 40…twice…because of penalties on kickoff? Timpson drives and scores. Doesn’t matter who you are, you can’t make mistakes like that and beat a quality opponent. And Timpson proved they are as of high a quality as they come. There was a common theme to those mistakes. Timpson capitalized. You can play ifs and buts all day, but at the end of it, Timpson capitalized and ran away with it in the 4th quarter because they made fewer mistakes, and made Daingerfield pay for making theirs. That’s what is so impressive about Timpson through 3 games this year. They don’t make many mistakes, and they are so talented that they make you pay every single time you make a mistake.
  15. Really good performance by Timpson. Was glad DF got a live stream working so that I could watch this one. Couple of uneducated opinions: 1) Timpson just keeps coming at you on offense. Didn’t look like they ever got phased whether it was 1st and 10 or 3rd and Long. 2) DF youth/lack of experience showed up at the key spots. QB made some really good plays, also left some big ones out there. Same thing up front. There were times DF won the LOS and there were times in key situations where they didn’t. Case in point, DF gets the ball with 1:10 left in the half and drives down and scores. That was a big boy drive to get it back right before half. Which leads me to point 3… 3) Special teams really flipped the game on its head. I highly doubt DF said hey let’s squib kick it right to the best player on the field. Gotta execute better in that situation. You don’t give up that TD and it’s 21-16 and even tighter than it was, especially when DF wound up scoring 1st in the 3rd quarter. And it was probably out of reach when it happened, but DF muffing the kickoff to give Timpson the short field was the ultimate dagger. Especially when it had came after DF had fumbled going into the end zone their previous drive. 4) I wouldn’t write DF off, they showed glimpses. Obviously weren’t good enough and didn’t play clean enough, but it’s in there. And several people have said it…Timpson is the real, real deal.
  16. One of your better, most sensical posts I’ve read from you on here. Kudos!!
  17. In region 1, someone like a Wall would become a consistent threat. In region 2, it would be wide open considering Gunter has won it with ease for what feels like the last decade. As someone else mentioned, Holliday would probably definitely be in the mix. Considering Daingerfield has lost to the regional representative the last 4 years (3 times in round 4, once in round 2) I would think all roads lead through them (if those roads don’t already) in Region 3 if Newton and Waskom were to drop. Region 4 is WIDE open without Franklin already, so no telling who would step up there. East Bernard has been there in the past.
  18. Good post. Football speed is way different than track speed. And being fast doesn’t make you a good football player. both of these teams have track speed. Both of these teams have football speed. Both of them are quite deserving of their ranking and I would expect both of them to play good football on Friday.
  19. Did you not read what I wrote? Fastest FAT times. Daingerfield ran their fastest times at regionals. Timpson ran theirs at state. If you are going to argue, read.
  20. Surely not that down. MV was probably good for GW. Brought them down off their high of almost beating DF who was breaking in several new starters on OL and at QB. GW should be ok with SH. Don’t think SH has the horses to out physical GW
  21. White Oak continues to get ready for their playoff run in 6-3A D1 with another solid, checks notes, 2A school….🫣
