    The Rangers are one of the fortunate one's in MLB. Bally has already cut ties with most of the MLB teams that they were carrying on a regional basis. The contract with the Rangers had only 1 more year left on it so Bally decided to honor the last year so we will have Ranger baseball in 2024. Bally said they will not renew the contract with the Rangers after that which makes one believe that they will totally shut down next October.

    Maybe not... https://www.si.com/mlb/rangers/news/texas-rangers-could-get-broadcast-rights-back-before-2025

    Soft people.  Maybe we should offer free counseling for the refs after every game.  They can complain about how they were misgendered by the coach.

    Get off the message board and come join us. We could always use the help.

    Longview moving to 6A, could be in a 9 team district possibly....

    I could see that....Both Rockwalls, Both Forney's, Legacy, Royce City, Longview, Mesquite and Horn.

    I could also see a 7-team district where the Mesquite schools get shuffled with some Dallas schools.

    Royce City is opening another school soon at it should be 6A very quickly as well.(not sure the exact ETA)

    I think Lee, Legacy,  or whatever you want to call them can win this game. It just depends on the coaching sticking to what works and not trying to let everyone touch the ball. That's what happened against Royse City. Throwing an interception on 1st down when you are clearly running the ball down their throat. Running a jet sweep with a receiver who is not jet sweep material and he fumbles. Luckily 0 came through on the offensive side and defense stepped up when it mattered. 

    It was the first game i have not attended this year. Happy they won. Hard to believe they could be a playoff team...even harder to believe that with a win, they would host a playoff game! New coaching staff are great people. Hoping they are in it for the long haul.

    I need rockwall heath to handle business so legacy can get in.

    I think it would be very hard to figure a scenario where Legacy does not make it....with wins over Horn, Mesquite, and RC...it would take a lot for them to be on the outside looking in. Most likely, their game with NF this week is for who is the higher seed that goes division II and gets to host a playoff game.

    I guess RC winning their last 2 could possibly put them in a tie with Legacy and Heath...if both lose out.

    So, Heath winning this week would set the playoffs....that would make the game between Legacy and NF a true seeding game...and Would put Rockwall and Heath 1-2 in the D1 bracket due to both Rockwall schools being larger than NF and Legacy.

    JT wins this. Lee coaching staff is doing the same thing as the previous staff. They are trying to run the ball down teams throat like Jamarion or Bryson is in the backfield.

    I recall a lot of JT fans was saying Lee got all our players. What players do Lee have that can help out JT? NONE.

    If JT beats Lee like I think they should. JT picks up a couple of wins against the Mesquite schools. I can see them going 4-6 or 5-5. That's a move in the right direction. They played hard last night. Lee on the other hand. 0-10 to 2-8 maybe. 

    Legacy tried a lot of deep shots last night. QB overthrew most...and others were into bracket coverage. If the O-line can gel and give him time and allow the running game to pick up steam I think they will be alright. On the scoring drive, the offense was clicking. New system. A lot different than what Willis ran. That Lufkin running back committed to Notre Dame is very good. 

  7. If we are not able to recruit more committed long term officials the state of officiating in 10 years is going to be very interesting. Most of the older officials have been committed to officiating for a long time. They study, learn the rules, and have lots of experience on the field. The newer guys that come in don't typically stay around long enough to be considered veterans. Hopefully we will be able to to stem the tide, but it could get worse before it gets better.

    Saw where one team had to change their sub-varsity games to Wednesday and Varsity games to Thursday!! Is this going to become more prevalent as the season goes??

    It should not get worse throughout the season. Varsity officials are chosen by the coaches back in the spring. Coaches mostly at smaller schools have known for months that they would most likely not a have a crew for a particular Friday night. They just wait until the last minute to move the games. We actually have a good number of officials right now, but we would love to have more for next season. The problem is getting officials that want to start and lead new crews. Hopefully we will have some guys step up. I believe this current week was one of the hardest to cover in the Tyler/East Texas area for the season.
