  1. This makes multiple games this year that teams could have scored as many points as they wanted to. Some teams could easily have busted the scoreboard.
  2. I believe the last time anyone put up 70 points on New Diana they looked for an almost entire new staff. I can't wait to hear what the excuses will be for this one. I'm sure the new Diana faithful and the mayor himself will have some great ones.
  3. Not butthurt at all. Just stating the facts. Can you disprove them TT?
  4. Rebuilding? I seem to remember when someone said that last year on this forum, they got hammered and everything was blamed on the coaches, not the fact that these kids were predominantly sophomores a year ago. Most of them had a year of varsity experience before this year. I think what this year amounts to is let's of folks at BD are eating crow because of the hype of bringing in a big name staff and getting about the same results if the last couple of years. Oh wait, no, a couple of years ago when ND went 3-7, the went into the playoffs. That wasn't good enough for the Eagle faithful then but this year it is all roses, and excuses (injuries/rebuilding) with that sane record and no chance of making the playoffs. Daingerfield would have filled with ND having everyone healthy. What a difference a year makes! Still, ND has good kids but lack a killer/hard nose attitude that it takes to make a football program. ND has had some decent teams over the years. If you don't believe me, go sit in the stands and listen to how they "used to do it" back in the day. Of course back in that day, you could have gone to Pittsburgh, Gilmer, Carthage, Henderson or Daingerfield (all powerhouses in these days) and they would have never known New Diana was anything but a blinking light a little north of Longview.
  5. This game came down to a game of coaching. Neither team has a plethora or athlete but kudos to the OC staff for out-coaching the staff at ND. Five rings didn't seem to matter Friday night. I guess the staff from Diana better get their resumes updated because the mob of Diana will be looking for a scapegoat. Good luck fellas!
  6. If practice time dictates anything, ND should roll for sure. Practicing by 6:30 or so every morning and then again in the afternoon should get you ready. I have seen both teams play and neither will be a force beyond any form of district play. They are lucky this year to be in a weak district and one of them should make the playoffs. I wouldn't spend much on playoff shirts though.
  7. TreeHugger....you are as stuck on yourself as the person who is behind the debacle that has gone on at ND since November. Seems you must have an inside man...unless you are the inside man. Or just someone with an ax to grind because you weren't the athlete you wanted to be, or your kids, etc. I don't know. As for me, since only some people on here have the right to ask questions, and it is certainly not me, this is my last post. I just asked about the baseball coach yesterday and it got removed and I got warned. Goodbye forever Smoaky as it seems there is bias everywhere.
  8. I don't have a spring break, but my kids wanted to see some old friends and it was nice to see mine too.
  9. It's been a while since I have talked to anyone but this past week I spent a couple of nights there since my kids have been on spring break and we wanted to see old friends. I did hear that maybe they have found a DC in Hector? What does that do to the current baseball guy if he comes? Is he already out? I did hear that a couple of coaches have already turned their stuff in too. Was one of them the baseball coach? I was told the same crowd that wanted the old football coach gone also wanted him gone now. Maybe more meetings with the supt? Anyone have any word on any other hires or possibilities that might be coning to ND? I would imagine it will be tough to get anyone to come from where he has been due to money and location.
  10. That is exactly it TexasSt. Get your buddies on the board and then push the supt around to get what you want. The "Do what we say or you'll get fired" good-ole boy inner workings at its best.
  11. Yes capntmo, that is what I got when I called about it. I did hear some interesting things though about one of the Diana bigwigs having a private meeting Sunday afternoon with the supt about who he wanted. Thought it might go another way until then. I'll be glad to use Coplin come in and get things started for the fall though and wish the coaches and kids at New Diana the best.
  12. Been kind of quiet on here. They've had it narrowed down to 2 finalists for 2 weeks and no action has been taken? I'm going to have to check with my Diana people to see what is going on. Either the loud people have gotten their way or Diana has dripped the ball. I'll be checking for an update.
  13. Well it seems as if the committee might as well be made up of 2 from what I gathered over the holidays while visiting friends. One of the committee members has been telling others that he and another committee member (also a board me member) have narrowed down the applicants to whom they feel will best fit the district. Then I heard one of them even was talking particulars and negotiating employment particulars over lunch this past weekend. Not real sure about the ethics of all of this but this process has been a farce from the beginning. If it was me that was being catered to, i believe i would pull my apllication immediately. I'd hate to know I was going to be going to a school to where I was going to be working for a couple of parents in the district. Now it seems ND will very possibly playing on a turf field and running on a new track next year. Granted from what I have seen, the stadium needs upgrades but so do the schools. Half I don't pay taxes there or I'd have to attend a meeting or 2.
  14. Every coach that has coached anything from Little League to professional football knows there will be people that disagree with him. That is just a given. My problem is that he insinuated that the coaches at ND were throwing little hissy fits at people's suggestions. As I said, I bet he has not tried to sit down and talk with them. It is one thing to disagree but from the games that I attended, fans were running down the coaches and the players. Diana has its share of supportive fans, but the non supportive ones by far overpower the comments and suggestions. If play action is a Coach, I will compare him to the magician that gets on TV behind a mask and gives away the trade secrets of the other magicians. It is never okay to stab your family members in the back. And for the record, my sons played for very successful coaches who they felt would go to Hell and back for them. My sons would have for them too. That's what we call respect.
