  1. I hope you're right. That would be great. I grew up in East Texas and it still feels like home to me, so I would like to see Timpson pull an upset. A close game is almost always more fun to watch and it's great for the kids. Wish they'd have played in College Station / Bryan instead of New Caney. Makes it harder to get there for a Thursday night game for those living in central Texas. I'd like to see this one in person.
  2. I'm basing my opinion on very limited information, but if I were a betting man, I'd put up a month's wages that Shiner handles Timpson fairly easy. This is based on 1) watching the Timpson v Leon game on Texan Live. 2) Watching Shiner in person yesterday and last year vs Refugio and also last week vs Mason. 3) Recent years of Region IV handling Region III with relative ease. Timpson looked good, but Shiner is so loaded it's ridiculous. They only lost their RB from last year #33, but they still have a loaded backfield. They are solid across the board.
  3. Only a hardcore doo-fuss would initiate a thread with this title.
  4. So Lynx is not working for MV now, but a previous post said he was "hired." Was he ever actually on payroll for MV? The whole thing seems kinda weird for someone like myself just learning of it now and trying to catch up on it. What I'm getting is: 1) purportedly came to MV to do a documentary for Netflix. 2) At some point was "hired," I guess to work for Briles and MV? 3) No longer works at MV and Netflix documentary never happened. 4) Two HS aged relatives moved to MV and lived with Lynx and played football some for MV last year, creating some brew-ha that resulted in them not getting to play the entire year, but the younger is playing for MV now. 5) Lynx status currently unknown (by me).
  5. What's the name of the Netflix documentary. I might want to check it out. I knew about the kids moving into MV last year and heard some discussion of it on the radio back then, but I didn't know the connection to Lynx and the rest.
  6. Excuse my ignorance on this, what does this mean, Lynx being "the real MVP of the purple tigers."
  7. Not sure Tenaha will live up to that prediction.
  8. Shiner was just the better team this year, but by a lot less than many thought. Refugio represented themselves well, containing Shiner's #2 that ran wild on Mason last week. Certainly tough for Refugio to mount a serious comeback once their #1 (Kelly) went out with the concussion. I was fortunate to be on the sideline and a few things that stood out to me that are hard to know how they impacted the game: 1) Refugio had the ball deep in their own territory with only about 2 minutes left on clock in first half. They threw 3 straight passes, taking almost zero time off the clock. Shiner got it back and scored right at the end of the first half making it 14-7. If Refugio had run some time with running plays, Shiner may not have had time to score and it would have been 7-7 at half. 2) Starting second half, Refugio went for it their first 2 possessions on 4th down and didn't make it. They were near the 45-50 both times. If they would have punted and put Shiner deeper, it could have had some impact. We'll never know. 3) Seemed like the Kelly kid didn't get enough touches in the first half. He's their go-to guy, but I can only recall him touching the ball 4-5 times. One of those he took some 80 yards for a TD. I'll be surprised if Shiner doesn't take the championship and I'll be pulling for them. I do think that Post may have a legitimate shot though as they were solid last year and I hear they brought back almost everything.
  9. I haven't put too much thought into it yet, but I think I like the idea of simply stopping the game and awarding the win to the other team if you have a player or coach on your team swing at, punch, or do any other threaten any kind of physical harm to an official. It wouldn't happen too often, but the action is so egregious, I think it merits an instant and automatic forfeit. Also, the team of refs on that game shouldn't be expected to continue with a game after this kind of action.
  10. This is one time I make no apology for talking about the "kid." He's a grown man and should suffer the same consequences as a man. This is a thug pure and simple. Thug mentality. Make the penalty as harsh as it can be. That ref is old enough to be a grandfather. Absolutely zero tolerance and no excuse could make this even semi-understandable.
  11. Assault pure and simple. Charge, convict and never let him participate in a UIL activity again. There are some things that there should be zero tolerance for and this is an easy one to classify as such.
  12. Not what was being said. They said Gunter would be going against Llano. I said, "Nope. Canadian."
  13. That was a ridiculous run by Gunter QB.
  14. Very good post. Here's what stands out to me. In my adult life, Mack is the only Texas HC that performed as good or better than expected over his tenure. Considering I'm 55, that's pretty sad. If I were a Sooner, I'd have several more names on my list than just one stand alone. Good for OU. Sad for UT.
  15. Why? Seems like a reasonable thing to do considering Mart... It's no slight to anyone, but it's freaking Mart.
  16. Better rest those starters for Mart just as soon as possible.
  17. Chilton is way outmatched. This is over.
  18. Not converting 1st and goal from the one is the kind of thing that frequently haunts a team. That's gotta hurt.
