  1. 0-0 - I think first varsity season in football was 2014. Think about that.....yeah I'd say powerhouse.
  2. That looks pretty close. Gunter returns alot, I think 9 on each side of the ball.
  3. It is impossible to know how these teams compare. But having seen 5 games with Canadian, their system, their coaching, and this year especially their talent I fully expect they will win this game. And I don't believe it will be close. They are alot better in person than on video let me tell you. This is a better team than the one that was one play from beating Newton in 2018, in my opinion. I do not believe either Waskom or Frankly would beat Gunter, though it is impossible to know that. Canadian is really good. The combination of offense and defense in scary. Gunter was strong in both
  4. Agreed. Canadian was the better team this year. Good luck against Franklin. I will be there but unfortunately had to get seats on the vistitors side. I am proud of Gunter's young team making it back to the semifinals. But they were not quite good enough facing this Canadian team. I think we will make quite a bit of noise next year.
  5. I'd say forget it - I am obviously not articulate enough to make my point. Move on, nothing to see here.....
  6. No way, of course Newton deserved to be in the and win in the finals. I am just referring to how the seeding is set and the same every year - region 1 against 2, region 3 against 4. This does not have anything to do with Newton or any other team. I am saying since they seed in advance it is LIKE having just 2 regions. Newton would have won those back to back regardless.
  7. Yep, and a great team in region I or II got left out of the finals. If you think about it the fact that I always meets II and III always meets IV, there are really only 2 regions and Gunter vs Canadian will be battling out for region I while Waskom and Franklin will be trying to win region II. And the 2 regions play each other in the final.
  8. I think they need to pick the semi matchups out of as hat. A great team out of Region 1 or 2 has been left out of the finals 4 years in a row and will again.
  9. According to Pigskin Canadian and Gunter would be ranked #1 and #2 in region 3 and region 4. This does not guarantee anything, but it does not appear region 1 and 2 are weak at the top.
  10. This will be the 5th in a row. The prize has been a trip to Jerry World every time.
  11. City View has QB Marks (6'1" 205). In last year's game Gunter scored 14, then City View 27 unanswered before Gunter scored 17 to win 31-27. QB Marks and his brother were in perfect sync for a half. The Marks brother receiver graduated, but Marks is still blowing up the stat sheet. Gunter's secondary has been playing well, as is the entire defense. CV lost some games early but have had some good wins in the latter part of the season and in the playoffs. They finished 2 seed to Holliday (31-13) in their district. This should be a good game. Winner plays the winner of Holliday/Ea
  12. I will go with Canadian, Gunter, Waskom, and EB. I do believe for Gunter, Holliday will once again be a solid obstacle in region II.
  13. Absolutely. My son and grandson and I go every year, whether Gunter is in or not. They run this show without a hitch. AT&T stadium was designed for this. Hope they can do it this year too.
  14. Bells has some good looking kids. I hope they stay healthy. It is a long season yet to come. Our guys and coaching staff had great respect for the Bells team and put in a good effort. Looks very familiar, who knowws?
  15. In 2016 we had some mediocre games like 27-20 over Pilot Point and I wondered if we would even get out of district. Just got better every week and dominated in the playoffs. The offense was new though, but while this year the offense is not new most of the players in it are. The young talent has shown much promise but are making way more mistakes than Gunter teams have been making. To be expected at this point but I fully expect that to improve and if it does we will be pretty good before its over. The coaching staff is excellent. Good about making adjustments. We'll be as good as w
  16. If you want to go there Gunter had a 31-0 lead after scoring on its opening possession of the 3rd quarter. From that point there were a number of starters standing on the sideline. Particularly the starting running back #32 and the QB did not play his defensive back position. WW's two touchdowns were the result of a great throw by the QB as he was running to the sideline but angled back to his own goal (being chased by Gunter defenders). He flung it back across his body and the kid made a play about 40 yards down the field. The second touchdown was after getting the ball inside the 5 aft
  17. The passing game in the state championship game is being judged by 2 bad passes from the sophomore QB. The kid had been pretty dang good and frankly I don't believe we would have beaten Canadian last year without the passing game. This year the passing game is a real threat for a run-first team - about 180 yards per game. Receivers are good, especially a 6'4" kid with great hands and speed - will burn you if you don't give the corner some help. The QB has a cannon and could play in anyone's spread offense and be successful. This helps the running game. Defense has been good, not as go
  18. I haven't seen Bells in a long time. They had a good run last year and are said to be better. I know Holliday is usually a very physical team that can play defense the offense tends to get bettter as the season progresses. Holliday has played a pretty tough schedule. Not sure about Bells, how they do against Holliday's defense will give a good indication. Bells vs Gunter coming in a couple of weeks.
  19. I see where Pilot Point had 600 yards of offense against Castleberry. Hollar had about 350 himself passing and running. Gunter is young and talented but will need a clean game. Week 1 PP played Plainview, OK.
  20. Too early to have much of a clue, but should be a good one.
  21. I am having trouble getting to pages of a thread. If i open page 1 I can't get to page 2 etc. Same user name different computers, different browsers, same problem. Anyone else have this problem?
