  1. 129 more people have died so far today, putting the total number at 637. The first death was 25 days ago. And those are the ones we know about, becausse those people have been tested. There are roughly 30 million people in Texas. As of today, 13,235 have been tested.
  2. You've got a 25 percent chance of winning the state title -- 50-50 in the case of the 1A and 3A teams -- and you tell me those kids wouldn't play without a practice or any games. They got that far, they want to finish it.
  3. I talked to a softball coach and they said they could see softball doing it where Monday/Tuesday is bi-district, Wednesday/Thursday is area, Friday/Saturday is region quarterfinals. Apparrently the UIL is waiving the weekly game requirements once they get back to action, so something like this would be feasible. I think you are underestimating the kids staying ready.
  4. Not yet. They have given themselves a month from now to see how things are going. If we get to April 20th and it is not trending in a positive direction, I think that is when they will pull the plug. It would be difficult for baseball and softball, especially baseball, to get done in a timely fashion -- mid-Juneish. But if everyone got back at it on May 4th, you could finish the boys basketball tourney, do the full soccer playoffs and golf, track and tennis before the end of the end of the month. Baseball and softball are going to end up being winner-take-all games in each round so they can do multiple round of the playoffs per week.
  5. Some of you guys can't be that dense -- the reason there aren't a high number of documented cases is because there hasn't been a large number of tests done. If you have 30 million people and test 100 and 3 of them have it, it doesn't mean the 29,999,900 don't have it. And you can test 15 million people and 500,000 can have it, it doesn't mean the other 15 million are in the clear The first case they knew of was March 4. In a week that number went to 21. Since that time, five days, the number is up to 57. You know how many people they had tested, in the state, as of Monday? 200 of out that 30 million. That's a 28.5 infected rate for the ones they know about. Keep that up and it means 8.5 million people get it. Cut it in half and that's still 4.25 million.
  6. At minimum, the UIL will halt all activities for the next few weeks, with an eye on a April 6 return. Baseball games missed won't be made up -- I could see softball doing double-headers to make sure everything gets played but it will end up coming down to each district on how to handle it The other sports -- track, tennis, golf -- won't be largely affected for playoffs since the district competitions are in that first week after the 6th to stay in some sort of normal schedule.
  7. Then that is on Howe for not appealing. Pottsboro did what they felt was better for them.
  8. They liked the travel distances for district 4-3a better than 5-3a.
  9. Pottsboro knows it's a long shot, but all they can do is say no. If they get a yes, then it's worth the ease in travel
  10. Celina might stay down one more time, if the cutoff takes another big jump.
  11. Prosper's new school, Rock Hill, will be a 5A Division II school until the next realignment and then they will be 6A. They will probably be 6A when they open the school but that's a whole nother story
  12. Celina isn't that surprising -- they were only three over the cutoff last time. They added 42 kids and the number went up 75
  13. Era's district was a five-team last year. Campbell dropped out and did independent six-man.
  14. I don't understand this thinking when third and fourth place teams, regardless of the sport, continue to win in the playoffs. Just because it's the way we used to do it when there were half as many teams doesn't work these days.
  15. Texas High would be out. The worst John Tyler can do in a three-way tie with Sherman and Texas High is -1. They won by 16 and could lose by as many as 17. Texas High is at -3. They beat Sherman by 13 and lost to John Tyler by 16. Right now Sherman is -13. That is why Sherman has to win by at least 11. They would go to -2 and be ahead of Texas High for the fourth seed. If they win by 13 or more, John Tyler is the four and Sherman is the three.
  16. John Tyler has clinched a playoff spot. Sherman would clinch a playoff spot with a win and a West Mesquite win or a win by at least 11 points and a Texas High victory. John Tyler would be ahead of West Mesquite or Texas High on points if either school was involved in the three-way tie with Sherman and John Tyler. Tyler is playing to avoid the fourth seed.
  17. The max for that district is 14 points Whitewright needs a win, a Cooper loss and a Chisum loss to get in.
  18. Cooper can clinch a playoff spot with a win and a Blue Ridge win or a loss and a Chisum loss and a Whitewright loss. Chisum would be eliminated with a loss and a Chisum win or a loss and a Chisum loss and a Whitewright win.
  19. You don't vote against it if have evidence and a really good reason to vote that way. You know why? Because the next time it will be your kids dealing with a vote and you don't want the schools you've voted against in the past to deny the eligibility out of spite and retaliation Any vote that goes to the UIL committee is a 50-50 shot at getting overturned. I've seen cases I thought would get upheld and didn't. I've seen ones I thought would get overturned and weren't. And if the DEC denies, there is no downside to appealing. A 50 percent shot is better than 0
  20. If you don't know about Argyle's athletic success, you havent paid attention to Texas High School sports for the past decade
  21. That one seems pretty straightforward to have to go to UIL Committee
