  1. Never done before in the inner-city? Highland Park. Same city. Eight appearances. Won five, with 3 in a row. Perhaps I'm missing something. I don't know the Dallas area very well.
  2. This was beat to death on another site and perhaps here too, but I don't have time to read through previous posts. How can a program that is self-proclaimed "Legendary" and "The Mecca" let the game be close enough that they would even have to whine about the Refs? Not to mention the "Death Row" defense. SMH. It would be better to show humility and full respect for opponents. I have no connection to either team, but by the end of that game I was so tired of seeing the ridiculous "Legendary" shirts. If you're going to proclaim it, you need to be able to back it up. Lots of teams have won back-to-back like SOC, so no, they are not "Legendary." I'll leave that title to Aledo and Carthage and I don't recall seeing them putting these labels on their shirts and hats.
  3. Those total yards and yds/carry dropped off significantly in their last two games as they came up against better competition. Yards/carry dropped from 9.2 to 6.4, still very good, but going to be tougher still against Gilmer and the passing game isn't there if needed. Scoring / TDs also dropped significantly. Both are to be expected. I just don't see Bellville matching up but I'm always wanting to see a slot-t team do good.
  4. Anyone remember that time Gilmer was going to donkey stomp the slot-t from Liberty Hill in the championship game? There was so much arrogance from Gilmer the week leading up to the game. Having reminisced on that for a moment... I've never seen Bellville. Got to go with Gilmer in this one.
  5. Keep game schedule the way it is. It has been working pretty good for a number of years and is likely the best option. Also, people are used to it and can plan well ahead to make it work for them. I'd hate for them to start tinkering with it and potentially make it worse.
  6. It's just the way it is in a state the size of Texas. There's no way to make it 100% even for everyone. Life is all about choices. You choose where to live and can choose whether to travel to see in person or watch on TV. It's the same for everyone in that regard.
  7. Come on man, you know that vast majority across all sources are saying this is Timpson's game. But, that is why they play the game. I never write a team off.... unless it's a particular central Texas 2AD1 team...
  8. A lot of people? I've seen very few and only 12 out of 80 on the poll.
  9. Like this... Batman, beans, chili = adults talk football for @JohnnyFootball? Yes, now I see how that Aggie education has paid off for you.
  10. Next time hire a decent ball coach and maybe your team will finally live up to its billing. Gotta stop shortchanging them on the pay and you'll get there.
  11. I had to stop at an establishment in Holland a few days ago ... and again overheard a conversation between a few of what I believe were coaches saying once the Hornets take care of Shiner (done), Ganado, and Refugio they are going to give Timpson a real good whoopin'. Couldn't bring myself to say anything to them, just let them enjoy their day.
  12. How do the Aggie faithful put up with getting dooped over and over? I don't care who is covering the ongoing pay to Jimbo, just the thought of an institution of "higher learning" exhibiting such idiocy is so nauseating, I don't know how they can put up with it?
  13. Lorena's strength of schedule looks so much better than Woodville, I think they're likely a heavier favorite than some may think. Only two losses to two quality opponents that are regular contenders in 4AD1, China Spring and La Vega. The did decent with China Spring and played La Vega to the wire. Also with wins over Franklin and Little River looks very good for them. I'm saying Lorena by 21.
  14. Definitely not a funding issue. If I were a betting man I'd wager my right leg that we spend more dollars (inflation adjusted) per student now than we ever have, yet the results are on a downward spiral in too many schools. We've chose to focus on too many things that used to be taken care of by parents in the home and we've also chosen to build extravagant facilities in many districts. IMHO, anything funded by tax dollars should be adequate to meet basic needs. I know this is old school, but old school wasn't 30+ trillion in debt. While that's national debt, it creeps down to every level and many of our districts are in pretty deep debt too.
  15. Looking at these numbers, I give the edge to LRA. I think LRA has played a much tougher schedule that has them better tested and prepared.
  16. Like I just said to bossman, I know Carthage is a superior program and LH was more than fortunate to get that win. All respect to the Dawgs. My annual pokes on Smokey are just for fun. While LH is more competitive than most thought they'd be in 5A with the Slot-T, they could be in for some lean years ahead with a second HS opening next year. Never know how that will impact...
  17. In a rare moment of total transparency, I know Carthage is a far superior program to my humble Liberty Hill Panthers. We were very fortunate to even be in the 2018 game, much less have enough luck to win. Yes, the stars had to align for LH to get that win. They'll likely never play again with the LH area growing, opening a new high school next year with both being 5A forevermore. Also, I'm a Texas High Alum, so I enjoy seeing your coach win all that he can.
  18. That's a 20% increase. Does this mean our property taxes go up 20%? I don't know enough about the system to have an answer to that, but the money has to come from somewhere and my taxes are already too high.
  19. It's all I've got JBizzle. Let me enjoy it. Ring or no ring doesn't matter, 2-0 matters, especially when not given a snowball's chance.
  20. Come on 'cowboy,' lighten up and have a little fun. Still, we both know the head-to-head is what matters. the thread is about preseason matchups and this one was glaringly missing from the long list given by bossman. Dawgs have had enough of the Panthers.
  21. The one matchup that is glaringly missing... Dawgs vs Liberty Hill. (just bc it's no fun watching them get the brakes beat off them by a one dimensional team)
