  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.
  16. Winona gets it figured out and takes out their frustrations. Give me Winona by at least 14
  17. So Kirt what are you going to do when or IF them hawks soar past them "Dawgs" cause ive seen the dawgs play and not impressed.
  18. If you go read that forum Hawkins is the underdog! Everyone expects Garrison to win by 14 plus so with that said. i got MV upsetting gladewater and Hawkins upsetting Garrison. Winnsboro over Tatum
  19. I have seen both play. Garrison will need to put it all together idc about their strength in schedule bobbled handoffs and snaps don't matter the opponent. They are athletic and big but people are assuming because of Hawkins district they aren't ready. I am a completely unbiased person being from neither town but Hawkins has a good group of kids that are up for the challenge. Everyone thought Carlisle was going hand it to them to. The team that makes the least amount of mistakes wins this game and from seeing both Id have to say it would be Hawkins! Goodluck to both teams this is what its all about playoffs in Texas!
  20. There has been over 300 games cancelled due to one case this year so that is a false statement. Maybe you need to find out the facts of what really happened and check the cases. From my understanding Winona drove all the way there so why would they cancel or be scared on their behalf? If it was THEIR fault they wouldn't of drove an hour and some change both ways and back and had to feed kids im assuming if it was THEIR fault. From both teams records I highly doubt winona was scared to play an 0-3 team that has a combined 6-88 point differential.
  21. Maybe you didn’t watch the shiner game! Shiner has no problem handling Refugio! Shiner lost that game Refugio didn’t win it! Refugio May be here and playing but that was because of SHINER! self inflicted let down! All credit to Refugio for not laying down but dang quit acting like Refugio is unbeatable! SA has just as much potential to win this game they ain’t here by luck that would be Refugio! Refugio May win this game May win it badly but SA May win this game to! Quit actin like this is a no brainer
  22. Your acting like Refugio won that game! Shiner lost that game. Kid fumbled when no one even touched him. They got stuffed on two point conversion. Shiner blew 2 coverages leaving a wide open target. You are betting on the fact that the wolves make the same mistakes! Refugio didnt ROLL shiner. Shiner then allows them to recover the onside kick and then say what you want but a missed delay of game call allowed Refugio to walk away with a win. Yes hats off to Refugio for never giving up but your sitting here acting like they whipped shiner. Shiner made mistakes for refugio to win that game. What if the wolves dont make those mistakes? What if SA gets up and they dont leave those 2 guys wide open for quick scores? I watched that game its not like there was good routes it was just blown coverage assignments leaving a guy open. LOT of luck went in to winning that Shiner game man you don't get that lucky every Friday night or Thursday night in this case. Refugio is a POWERHOUSE and very well could win this game easily but don't be so quick to write these wolves off! They deserve to be here!
  23. I want to bring up a point no one else has yet. SA hasn't had a close game yet in the playoffs. Everyone is acting like Refugio is invincible and that SA is lucky to be here. Truth be told Refugio is a great team but they are the ones lucky to be here. Bad break on the Shiner kids fumble or Refugio is sitting at home two weeks ago. Fumble, missed two point conversion, lucky onside kick bounce and then a very very very controversial delay of game field goal for the win. Quit acting like Refugio has walked through God and everyone. They are a powerhouse and to answer whoever asked why people don't like the Refugio coach is because of the times he has called timeouts to score again while up 50 60 70 points with only a minute or so remaining. I believe this is a good game and I am rooting for the underdogs of SA.
  24. Wrong. Troup going in as the third seed will pull newton second round if they win their first round playoff game.
  25. Grand Saline by a land slide. Quitman got ride of several staff members after going 13-1 in 2005. They had a down year in 2006 where they went 4-6 the next two years after they they played for the district championship both years losing to winnsboro. Had another 4-6 year the year after that then they ran the whole staff off even the ones left from the 2005 playoff run. That staff started in 2000 and most of them were still together through 2008 season and they went 58-30 overall in those 8 years. Since then 2009-2018 they are 17-83.
