  1. I'm in total agreement with that approx 15% threshold for it... I like to see great teams in a playoff because I'm a believer that ANYTHING is possible from an upset aspect when something bigger is on the line. I've been on the downside twice of only conference champs getting auto-bids and then XX amount of teams at-large (as long as those were in a certain geographical region)...had my college tennis teams 20-4 and 21-3 respectively and ranked in the top 13 nationally left out as conference runners-up.
  2. yes, unless they have dropped that...and aside from the 30k capacity...I believe prior to jumping you had to average over like 20k for a season
  3. most of us consider that as south Texas, so another area/region.
  4. When they're ready to go to 16...colleges will be fussing that only 6 at-large to go amongst the "big conferences" will not be enough...will need 24-32. I'm sure the NCAA basketball tournament had a fuss each time to raise the bar to 68 or whatever it is now.
  5. Wil Middlebrooks was a pretty good QB and yes, LJ was quite good too
  6. that's why this is an opinion poll that will be jaded by our home town biases
  7. I may want to go back just a couple years earlier with my player, Gilmer's Manuel Johnson... best team...'14 Gilmer was a great choice...might would have been Gilmer's GJ Kinne team had it not been for a terrible Liberty Eylau game...always felt that team throughout the season should have played full games (starters going past halftime)..."no telling" what national records might have fallen with that team and they would have been totally prepared for that LE team. best game was the Gilmer vs Canton game, the last year Kinne was playing QB at Canton...
  8. my thing, the AD wouldn't be the person enrolling or unenrolling students...or
  9. I think a lot of that was an offensive / total plan issue...if he's totally focused on the D then it should be good
  10. and I heard him in a old SMU historical piece say he, "thought it was weird that they had guy cheerleaders", etc alluded to so few women.
  11. I like the oh so gentle nod towards Eric Dickerson and their great history ...
  12. "he couldn't find a way to get wet in the rain!"
  13. this isn't college, where the coach recruits HIS KIDS... these are Gilmer kids that have played under Metzel in some capacity all along...
  14. and everyone was affectionately "hey Double-ugly"...
  15. "he's about as good as Ned in the first grade reader!" or "he couldn't get out of a wet paper bag!" heard that from my dad...talking about his players for years
  16. if I was a top WR, I'd look at the info...along with the idea that a Jimbo good offense means you throw it 15-20 times a game (awesome opportunity for targets there)
  17. watched game 3 a few minutes ago...pounded Tech
  18. bring on Willie Hargett...oh...
  19. I think with everything that has happened and the added stresses and duties that have gotten heaped on many teachers/coaches/admins...it becomes an easier decision to walk away where many of the above would have hung on and kept "doing what they do" until they felt a little more financially comfortable (if that ever happens) or unfortunately until health may whisper in their ear "it's time". I came to the public school side of things late after 12 years of college coaching and some years in the "business world" before getting "called" again to coach...so I need some more years to "retire" but my wife went straight into this world and could retire about the same time -- her retirement and regular pay looks so much nicer. Our world has changed a lot here and she constantly points at the fact that I could easily go make more at a company and not have the crazy parents that "think we're babysitters" or have to deal with the rules that are changing (ratcheting up) it seems by the semester with the same pay - if not less (when you consider our "year steps" aren't matching inflation).
  20. someone to polish the Gilmer Buckeye logos on the weight room equipment...
  21. what happened for Tre Mitchell to quit? I felt like he was seriously our best player, as I watched.
