  1. Might not look like a blowout because the Anna and Celina coaches will have the class to not run it up too bad but it won’t be competitive after the 1st quarter.
  2. Does he still have the fire or is he just looking for one last payday? He is in a great situation to succeed. Especially if the district remains close to the same as now, not much competition except maybe Melissa but they are hamstrung by their HC. I expect it will be LJ and SOC going at it most years in region 2 until one of the two HC’s hang it.
  3. Padilla all state teams have ZERO credibility. It just quid pro quo scheme for him to get subscribers to his hack publication.
  4. He is a hack. Is basically a caricature of himself. The big ole cowboy hat and giant ring that evidently he had no part of winning is ridiculous. He adds no value to broadcast.
  5. You would think would want to move up. 3A-D2 is like peewee ball in the grand scheme of Texas HS football.
  6. Sorry sir. Didn’t mean to make you angry. Just saying Gunter could compete up a one division and still win state but not up three divisions. Im sorry if that is offensive to you but it shouldn’t be. I used the Melissa scrimmage just because that was a recent example of them trying compete 3 classes up and it wasn’t competitive. Kudos to them for even taking that scrimmage. I do remember Gunter putting on Melissa but it wasn’t the state championship year but a couple of years later. Melissa was at least a division or two above Gunter at that time and Gunter still spanked em. All this is said to complement Gunter not disparage them. Edit: Gunter did beat Melissa the state championship year but also beat them after the state championship year.
  7. I know I am probably in the minority but it just seems there is too many di I agree Gunter would do we’ll certainly at 3a-d1 and even 4a-d2. I remember they scrimmaged Melissa during covid year 2020 when Melissa was 4a-d1 and Melissa very much dominated them. Gunter is in such a great geographical location drawing from the growing suburbs they are going to be very good no matter what division they play in for a long time. You would just think they would get bored but I guess winning is never boring. I know I am probably in the minority but it just seems there are too many divisions and moving to a single division in each classification would make for better competition. If you want more teams that can be state champions then current system is better but competition suffers.
  8. Gunter ought to seriously consider playing up like several other schools across the state do. They have made their mark and really nothing left to accomplish at 3A-D2. I know the parents of the kids on the team love blowouts but my guess is the kids would like stiffer competition then maybe once a season. From this spectator’s standpoint football is only fun to watch if the matchups are at least in the same ballpark talent wise so there is really no need to ever watch Gunter because you already know the outcome.
  9. After seeing Melissa, LJ & SOC play I give the nod by a pretty good margin to SOC in regions 1 & 2. They are big, fast, disciplined and surprisingly effective passing game. Melissa has a nice team but are undisciplined, way too many flags and honestly I don’t think their D is that stout. LJ like Melissa with just an above average defense. Don’t know anything about Emerson but seem to be taking care of business. They are definitely on the radar now.
  10. I guess I saw a different LJ then you guys saw last week. Offense is very good and defense gave up some garbage points at the end to make score looks closer then the game really was. Their stud LB didn’t play much of the third or any 4th qtr. That was against a team that was ranked #3 in a higher division. Unless Argyle comes out as a completely different team then last week I have to believe LJ wins. Argyle did not look good at all last week and didn’t really flash anything to give a lot of hope for a one week turnaround.
