    Now just split the classifications into divisions for every sport. 

    It’s better for smaller schools that way.

    I think that's the plan for the next realignment.


    They wanted this implemented immediately and nobody wanted to go back and change schedules and stuff at this late point. There were a lot of coaches in those sports that were caught off guard this was even going to happen. So I think they will keep it like this for the cycle and then split them.

    Are you sure about that?  The bracket sets up for Region 1 vs 3 and Region 2 vs 4 in the semi-final.

    The top two records are split into separate semifinals and they flip a coin between the other two to see who they will face

    You think Whitesboro will be moving up? I don't expect the growth to reach that far north for a while.

    Whitesboro has a really good chance to move up pending where the cutoff falls.

    the cutoff this last time was 545, which was unchanged from the prior one, and Whitesboro turned in 508, which was an increase of 43 from the prior realignment.


    They are trying to pass a bond and as part of the presentation are prjoecting the HS enrollment for the start of the 2024-25 school year as 556. So if the number stays around where it has been the last two cycles, Whitesboro will already be over it with a year to add to it before snapshot day

    Some of these graphics could use some real work, some are very hard to read. 

    The worst are the ones with just logos and no names -- like I know which Eagle you're playing in Week 1 and that Tiger in Week 3

    It would have made more sense putting Beckville in District 11 and having 10 and 11 with 7 teams each .....

    If they can avoid as many odd-team districts they will so there is no rolling bye and everyone is on equal footing

  6. The potential Week 2 is a doozy as well. It's not out there yet because they are each trying to find other opponents. or Gunter might just take a double bye, but if you think the schedule is super tough now....

    You keep being the shill you are for Gunter for your newspaper.  Grab a copy of the yearbooks from the past few years and count how many have been in each class hoss.  I’ll wait while you lick Jake’s boots some more Jason.   That or just keep your head in the sand.  Insiders from the ISD that have no ties to the school will gladly tell you what they did two years ago.  Ask around if you are a true reporter.


    You can literally look at the month-to-month enrollment and see there is no irregularity. There is no spike in either direction that can be attributed -- from october 2022 to october 2023 the high school dropped nine kids to what they turned in.


    Counting heads in yearbooks? That's the smoking gun and no one's used that to take down a dynasty. I have heard all sorts of stuff in regards to this topic and my response is the same -- show me hard evidence that proves Gunter has done anything to manipulate enrollement. Not a coach told a coach told his friends stuff. Text messages, emails, not hearsay or sour grapes. Not somthing people think is wrong but is within the guidelines the UIL allows.


    I can't just go around spouting stuff just because this person says it or that person believes it. I'd like to not be sued and keep my job.

    They have had the numbers to move up for a few years now, it’s just on snapshot day enough of those pesky transfers get un-enrolled for a few days to stay under.  

    Yeah it's crazy how that in the two months since Snapshot Day, the high school enrollment shot all the way up to.....oh they dropped two kids and are down to 361


    I guess they forgot to re-enroll all those pesky extra kids

    I'm getting the stats from the official UIL site as well.  He had gains of 19 yards and losses of 3 for a NET of 16.  Either way, not very many yards, but you're only referencing the positive yardage.  Not sure why the UIL separates out positive yardage from negative - it seems cumbersome, but that's why we are 3 yards off in the second half.  

    No I counted one of those as a two-yard gain when it was a negative-two. I hate how they do those boxes as well and put the yardage before loss first.

    #5 was killing us.  I think we did a great job of shutting him down in the second half, and that was the biggest difference.  By my rough count, I believe he had 12 carries for 150 rushing yards in the first half (2 of those carries went for 43 and 61 yards) - so 104 on 2 carries; 46 yards on the other 10 in the first half, and 10 total rushes for 16 total rushing yards in the second half.   

    The UIL official stats had 10 for 19 in the second half.


    Outside of those two long runs, his longest was a pair of eights.


    Second half went

    If DeSoto doesn’t opt up just replace them with Sherman.

    You missed my point -- why would Sherman fit travel wise with that district compared to just going back with the Friscos if the number of teams in those districts wouldn't make a difference. Your initial non-DeSoto district wouldn't make that much sense

    I would like to see one of two options when 7A hits

    1. Move 1A-3A to The Star and 4A-7A stay at Cowboys....Multiple coaches I have talked to that have played at the Star would love that. It is a great place for small schools. The stands would be packed and a great atmosphere and you would still get the hospitality that Cowboys provide

    2. Start 4A-7A One week later in the season and have The state games one week apart..And yes I know that can push up against Christmas but in COVID year it was kind of fun having playoff games around it and you could put the 1A and 2A back on Thursday

    If you think six-man teams are gonna throw a fit of not being at AT&T, try telling the 2A and 3A schools they don't get to play there

    Isn't there a pick 6 on the goal line in there?  I wasn't at the game, but maybe Bells' score was a pick 6?  Could be wrong about which game.  I'm also fairly sure Gunter hasn't allowed any points in the first half in 9 consecutive games.  Average halftime score of 47-0 in the last 9 games.

    The Bells score was a one-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter


    It was the Gladewater TD that was a pick six.


    So out of Gunter's 62 points allowed:

    7 are on kickoff return and 7 on a pick six, so the defense has allowed 48 points.

    Of those 48: 30 are in the first half with 17 in the first half against Walnut Grove
