  1. 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.
  2. Might want to pump the brakes just a little on Franklin not being able to cover and being undersized. They can play some ball and they have very good team speed.
  3. "Because you don't have the athletes to line up and play ball." ??? I think I know what you mean, but this is what football is all about, coaching and playing with the cards that are dealt you. This works for CS due to the type of athletes they have. They're definitely lining up and playing ball, but Carthage will spank them quite handily.
  4. Yes, I get that, and there's a good chance one of them will play Shiner. Wasn't taking anything away from either, just making a comment of what one of them will be seeing. Happens all the time on threads.
  5. I know it's one week at a time, but for the fans of the winning team...do not miss next week's game against likely Shiner. I went to see them last night against Mason and they are exceptional. Of course they have to get past their nemesis Refugio first and that has been a very tough task for them even when they've had superior talent.
  6. When run to perfection, which very few teams can do, it's some of the most enjoyable football I've ever watched. This was the case back when Liberty Hill won their first two titles. My friend and I have watched a lot of HS football over the years, but their QB was so good with his handoffs that we had a difficult time tracking the ball even after watching them play 10+ games. A great offense to watch.
  7. Salado is up and coming, really still establishing themselves as a competitive program. They're only a few years removed from being a perennial bottom dweller. In 2018, Liberty Hill was very well established and had built a culture of winning since the early 2000s and were used to being on a big stage with very successful programs. I don't think Salado is there yet and would be surprised if they can really compete with Carthage. My guess is they may hang close initially, but Carthage will win quite handily.
  8. I went to the game. Natalia was just what I thought they'd be, a typical south Texas team that doesn't compete well once they cross I-10 Franklin is solid and was a lot of fun to watch. I'll definitely be looking to see them again.
  9. I'm not seeing it listed anywhere. Timpson v Leon was on texanlive.com They have a decent broadcast and it's only $10.95 for a one month subscription, so a lot of games from all over the state.
  10. Correct. Holland was probably breathing a sigh of relief to get away from Refugio/Shiner/Mason, but they're not going to do any better with these east Texas teams.
  11. Agreed. I like looking at the numbers like that too. It can turn into a rabbit hole for me if I'm not careful.
  12. Well, now you are. I guess time still heals those wounds. Also subsequent success goes a long way which came straight away for all but the seniors on that team.
  13. Hope you didn't spend too much time on those numbers. Good to have some numbers, but I don't think they tell the story in this case. Poth overall schedule doesn't hold a candle to Rogers' schedule. Rogers played a few poor teams, but also represented themselves well against much better competition than what Poth saw. Also, Poth doesn't like to move beyond the second round. If Poth can get over their aversion to 3rd round playoff games, they may manage to pull it out, but won't be by more than 10. I'm going with Rogers.
  14. I live in cedar park, so looking forward to seeing Franklin. How/where can I get tickets?
  15. Yeah, the Waskom faithful used to be some serious trash talkers. I remember around 2013 when they were going against Refugio they were talking trash like I'd never seen on Smoaky, thinking they were going to hand it to Refugio. They got beat down so bad perhaps that is still in the recesses of their minds making them think twice before doing it?
  16. I think Rogers will take this one. Their record is deceiving with a slow start and strong finish. Also, Poth historically has a difficult time getting out of the second round, if they ever have?
  17. Yeah, I've seen them only a few times, maybe 3 or 4, and have only kind of kept up with them through seeing their results over the years. They're an okay program, just saying that when I've seen them in person my recall is that they were forgettable, that's the only word I can think of that describes them. They are always a 1st or 2nd round departure from the playoffs, which isn't saying much in our age where 4 teams per district get in.
