  1. I've driven thru both towns ... theretofore, I'm going with Tatum .... Well, let's see what the book says ... Lumberton is averaging 256 yds per game passing (14TDs) at 24 Att per game and 139 yards per game rushing (5 TDs) at 27 Att per game
  2. The District of Doom starts district play with a 12-15 record ... however, 4 of those loses were to currently undefeated teams. And who would have thought L-E would be undefeated at this point? .... maybe it's the fact that three of their wins were posted against opponents that are currently a combined 2-10 ... but a win is a win and two hundred years from now who'd notice.
  3. Depends of whether Athens' QB is healthy and plays this week ... missed this week vs Kaufman.
  4. Don't know, but I figure most everybody has a chapter in their book that they don't want read out loud ...
  5. Just looking around on Thursday nights ... when you get to the point where 4A JV games are being worked by 3 and 4 man crews, you definitely have a shortage ...
  6. The so-called District of Doom came pretty close to being Broomed ... maybe Week 2's schedule will be more inviting.
  7. Final: K 24, L 17 Buncha folks wrong on this one ...
  8. somebody's reading too many of their own press clippings ....
  9. Been involved in it twice ... neither had the desired outcome.
  10. The varsity part got about 9 plays in before a lightning delay ... they finally gave up about an hour later
  11. SS is still learning and yearning ... kinda a long way from being where they need to be ... new coach/staff and coming off an O-fer is a tall order to change in a brief span ... Jax in somewhat same scenario but have QB that will probably make the difference in this one. SS has a young, small RB that shows some talent last year when I watched him ... didn't really get rolling though in the Lindale scrimmage ... at times, didn't look like the same kid as I remembered. Jax must improve on D to be in the hunt long-term ... not giving up 39 ppg like last year would certainly be a plus.
  12. The Palestine - Kaufman scrimmage got only 9 plays in before being called after about an hour delay.
  13. Kind of a toss-up ... depends a lot on continued development of K's new QB - though good quality RB returns to help carry O while QB develops. We shall see how this plays out ... it's early and early means that odd-shaped ball can take funny bounces, Just hoping everybody on both sidelines stays healthy ...
  14. Jax-K Zipped thru it real quick this morning ....this is what I think it looked like Controlled ... Jax 1 (long pass) and K-1; Backemups 0-0 Other ... Jax 2, K 2 (one a long run); Jax added FG What I took away from it ... Between the tackles on both sides of the ball is not Jax strength yet Turnover issues - Jax had three INT (at least one a potential pick-six) and one lost fumble; K had one Int Defense for both will need to improve ... which I expect they will ... Jax D showed a little more intensity than what I remember last year ... All-in-all, it is too early to be making assumptions on either bunch ... I'm just glad Friday nights are back. Doesn't look like many Jax fans made the trip.
  15. https://www.newsnationnow.com/us-news/sports/texas-referees-abuse-fans-parents-players/ The Umpire Strikes Back
  16. Depends on whether the community power structure kids are putting up good numbers.
  17. I can pre-date that ... I came at the end of the tackle-twill era .....
  18. Yea, but you might put the wristband flip-top people outta business and ruin the economy .... and then what would the signaling one or two assistant coaches have to do while on the sideline during a game? ... tis a lol
  19. Good point - Of that, I have NO doubt ... we were running it as far back as the early Sixties when I was in Jr. High and when ole Shep was justa newborn pup ...
  20. Good observation ... though his wrinkles tend to center on wingback motions (2nd Back Thru and Weakside Quick Pitch) ... example: the one play I have seen him use that other Wings don't usually include in their basic package is what we usta call The Second Back Thru ... have only seen him run it versus even fronts ... Is very similar to Scott Phillip's Split Back's 2nd Back Thru ... he liked it also versus even fronts, but he would run it against odds if they pinch the tackle to help on the inside dives. I have always assumed that their 2nd Back Thru concept came from the early Bellard Wishbone ... no confirmation ... just hadn't seen it earlier than that. I believe Barrett was originally from Weatherford and I know he went to Tarleton ... so I am assuming he is one of the classic leftovers from the West Texas Wing-T bunch that once dominated the scene. No one can argue with his success, although some have contributed his district championship dominance on the school's long association in the Ft. Worth UIL district. Doesn't matter though ... I like to watch him at work, I'm just glad I'm not sitting across from him on the chessboard every Friday night.
