  1. Agree 100%. Small schools will struggle to keep up with the larger schools in all facets -- academics through extracurriculars to auxiliary departments such as transportation. Wish someone could tell me how it is fair, or how it is even legal, that a child in one of the city schools or, especially the affluent bedroom communities - how does a student who attends one of those public schools get thousands more spent on them (in per-student state funding) than a kiddo who lives somewhere out in a rural area? How can this possibly be constitutional (where's Scott McCown when you need him??)
  2. Who all is gonna be there?
  3. Paint the car! My personal favorite, though, ... "ya plant a cocklebur, ya get a cocklebur" You guys oughta be around here Saturday, the 9th. The alumni game is gonna be played at Kemp on that day. It's gonna be hilarious ..... can't wait to get my popcorn and coke and get me a spot on the rail ....
  4. Sorry ... I can't take credit for this one --- someone far wiser than me is responsible for this one ...
  5. Sorry Colmy -- not the starter, but we've got us a good one. District meet last week I was in charge of certification - since there is no certification for this one, I may just install myself as the chief of Mexican food -- that sounds like a good job for me, doesn't it?
  6. Will have to let you know, Billy ... if I'm not mistaken it's gonna be Mexican, but I don't know serving time yet.
  7. Regional Qualifiers meet Thursday, April 22, at Eustace High School. Starts at 3:30. Varsity Boys and Girls. Great facilities, great medals, great meal at a meet that is ran off very well and very expediently. Contact Chuck Powers at [email protected] or call AD Doug Wendel at 903-425-5158.
  8. I'm surprised they HAD 4.
  9. The more obvious question, to me, is this -- Why in the world would anyone leave Daingerfield to go to Mabank?
  10. Congratulations to Coach Jackson - he'll have Poteet up and running in no time. Still wonder about "what might have been" had Randy not gotten the total shaft two years ago .... good luck, Randy. Poteet got them a good one.
  11. There ya go! Bring on the flex quail! Think Timmy P can be persuaded to leave the bright lights of the big city??
  12. Didn't Lone Oak throw the ball all over the place against Winnsboro? I guarantee you Edgewood is as adept at throwing the ball as Lone Oak, if not better - they may not stop Winnboro's running game, but I don't know if Winnsboro will stop them either. Either one could pull this off -- and it doesn't matter to me who wins - I am from neither place - but if you think it will be a Winnsboro blowout, I have to disagree ....
  13. Canton and Van will battle it out for the top spot. Winner of this game = district champ. Loser will finish second with one loss and the rest of those teams - Eustace, Mineola, Kemp and Wills Point will have to battle it out for the leftovers. Any of the 4 could win against any of the other 3 on any given Friday, I suppose - could come down to a district tie-breaker for the 3rd place finisher.
  14. Scrimmage filled. Thanks.
  15. Both Eustace and Mabank, if both stay in 3A, would be closer to Athens, Bullard and Brownsboro than either Canton or Wills Point. The Highway 175 district looks to pretty much stay intact, I would think, unless either Mabank goes up or Eustace goes down, or both. You can figure that Kemp, Crandall, Kaufman will stay the same unless they get pulled in along with Ferris to the 2 DISD 3A's. Both Wills Point and Canton have been with this group before. Could see Mabank, Kemp, Ferris, Crandall, Kaufman, Eustace, Wills Point, and Canton back in the OLD 12-AAA from about 8 years ago. Lot of that will
  16. If anyone is interested and is having a problem getting through to the athletic office, please e-mail me at [email protected] Thanks.
  17. Wills Point HS needs a 9th grade game for Thursday, September 20, 2007. Prefer home game, but can travel if needed. Contact Mark Bachtel, AD, at (903)873-3654 or (903)873-2371.
  18. What was the deal about not having cell phones on the field? 1. $12 adult admission - $6 for students. A family I knew came for Saturdays finals - $42 for a man, his wife, and 3 kids. State meet admission is only $10. 2. Pole vault should have started at 9 on Friday - it finally got underway at 10:30. Made everything else that day late. When you make plans for events to begin when they are supposed to and they don't, it messes everything on your schdeule up. Example - not only could those vaulters have got an extra hours sleep, but because it started late, the running finals were lat
  19. You are right -- it was pretty bad.
  20. Along this line, went to White Oak last night - 18 teams there - Varsity Boys and Varsity Girls and was DONE by 9:15. Had to wait maybe 5 minutes for packets. I realize that this was varsity only - but still, with 18 teams, that's like having 10 teams Boys and Girls JV and Varsity. LOVE going to White Oak -- they have great competition, they don't waste your time, and they feed you some really, REALLY good sausage and beans. Great early-season meet ----
  21. OK -- watching the game right now and Westlake is dominating so far. I have 2 questions: 1. Does Westlake not have a dress code, or hair code? Have seen several of their players and there are several that have full beards; the QB, who by the way is playing extremely well, would be sent home at my school till he got a haircut. GUess things are much more liberal around the state capitol. 2. Would someone PLEASE tell FSN to lose the loudmouthed lady sideline reporter. She's KILLING me -- have missed 10 snaps at least by having the camera on her and her random interviews. She seems to rath
