  1. Yea after Nick spent the entire preseason arguing with me and others guaranteeing they would make the 4th round at the VERY LEAST I believe his exact words were. 3rd round exits means you beat one legit team in the second round because as district champs of the weak district your in you pull a fourth round team that is probably 4-6 or 3-7.
  2. In a less than average district with second round exits after a lot of hype!
  3. Everyone in that district is probably hoping harmony does go to slinging the pill in the spread. Mark my words, if Harmony goes to spread and starts throwing 20-30 times a game they go from top of the district to bottom of district quickly. Be careful what you ask for.
  4. Well Grace is a private school. I believe technically he can retire from public school system draw his retirement and still coach at a private school unless they have changed that rule!
  5. The lower levels do it all the time. Play not only offense and defense but kickoff, kickoff return, punt and punt return. I understand its hard to go both ways when others in that classification aren't but conditioning is conditioning 1A-6A. I do agree that Jville numbers are down but I have always believed that your studs should play both ways period 1A-6A. I know of a 2a school that prolly cost themselves a state title trying to play one side of the ball. If numbers aren't changing then conditioning needs to. Just my opinion
  6. Webber was there when Quitman won those titles and went to the Regional Finals and lost to state champs Newton. He was then the OC for the two years they played for the district title. He came back after being gone and put back in a run heavy offense and gave his kids a chance to compete instead of the constant 3 and outs in 35 seconds and give the other team the ball right back. Like Valhalla said people can say one dimensional all they want but isn't any different running spread with kids that aren't capable of running it. If you have a qb with a good arm like harmony has in the young seahorn kid you can still throw from under center but still got to have wrs that can catch and a line that can pass set.
  7. Harmony isn't loaded with athletes! They are loaded with strong, disciplined, hard working kids. There is a huge difference! What is the difference in a team being under center pounding the rock being one dimensional and a spread team slinging it being one dimensional? Difference is throwing can be a quick 3 and out. You want to talk about one dimensional? Gunter, Newton, Franklin, Liberty Hill, El Campo, Waskom, SHINER, and China Springs who was very run heavy in the spread had zero problems being "one" dimensional. Everyone thinks you got to go spread to be successful with your 75 percent comment. You got to run what you think is best for the kids you have and I believe Coach Russell did that. Want a comparison to harmony? Quitman! Same type of kids. They used to have hard working disciplined kids and for four straight years they won a district championship and played for two more. They went spread and they became the worst team in the state of Texas 1A-6A cause they thought they had to go spread like everyone else. Coach Webber has come back in and established an offense that is better suited for those kids and they won more games this year than they have the last 10 combined. People have the misconception that you can't throw under center and that is far from true.
  8. I can understand your point but in my opinion its the participation trophy mentality and it hurts today's society. If you want in the playoffs and your in a loaded district then get better. I understand that is harsh but its true. If you aren't the best 3 then sorry your not going to the playoffs. You will have to see those guys again in the 4th round anyways. You want in in a tough district than beat the guys in your district. Because loveofthegame said it very well. MAJORITY are lopsided victories and your just running the risk of injuries but we all have our own opinion
  9. Overall #1 seed (which is your district champs) verse your #4 seed 5A-2A was 111-17. Which means 4 seeds only won 6.6% of the games. 3 seeds had 51 wins which is 19.9%. Used to be the top 3 seeds went and before then the top 2. To me in my opinion the 4 seed will see an occasional upset or two but at 6.6% the four seed addition is just a way for more money to be brought in.
  10. Newton fans have a right to have a little cockiness and swag west rusk not so much. Nick you beat your chest every week and what skins do yall have on the wall? Yes yall have been district champs but 2-3 rounds then an exit isn't something to be overly cocky about! Teams like Newton consider that an off year!
  11. Y’all beat a 4th seed Paris chisum 5-6 team. Of course you won district you dropped down from 3a d1 to 3a d2. Then you turn around and play 6-4 Hughes springs team! What happened when you matched up the next round? You got Molly whopped by Waskom! So yes your under performing you made the 3rd round you didn’t win it! You won the first two rounds against bad teams which is expected! Congrats! You won’t go 4 rounds this year either.
  12. West Rusk will not make it four rounds. They dropped in qualification and have under performed since. Yes they have made playoffs which is expected when you move down in classification the problem is not doing anything once making playoffs. I remember last year it was "expected" to make a deep run and was ousted.
  13. Oh I totally agree that is everyone's goal and I hope for you and the kids it happens but what I am saying is if yall go from 2-8 to district champs in a year..... yall better give this new coach a pay raise!!!
  14. Compete for a district championship???? Is yall's district down or something?
  15. I don't see anyone beating Timpson in the regular season. Only thing that will stop Timpson between now and playoffs is themselves or covid.
