So..

This game is:

1. Great American Rivalry Series GOTW

2. FSSW Texas DQ Big Game Of The Week

3. DCTF Game Of The Week

Pretty sure the local outlets have it is GOTW as well.

Safe to say there will be cameras everywhere, shaping up to be even bigger than that 05 matchup.

Same outcome. Lobos by 24.

I sure hope JT runs and stomps on our Logo and points at us tonite...

Man, I understand your frustration but ONE day you are going to have to take off them green colored glasses and learn to be humble about this era of Longview Lobos especially with John King at the hel

right now the I feel I'm closer to 40. If JT scores 60 I'll buy you Von Heat C4L 99 pair of Gucci shades! Aint buying Dace nuthg cause I know he prolly sporting 5 pair right as we speak...lol

Dang, bruh... What was said that triggered you to the point of melting down and straw manning a 24-point victory for the Lobos?

 

I might come up for this game... Longview vs JT was always one of my favorites, even when JT was having those really bad years.

That JT team looks loaded with athletes, as they always are. Should be a fun one to watch.

 

I dunno... I just don't see JT as the bitter rivals the way I do other teams. Might be because in my 4 years at LHS they were just so down. We beat them 3 times as Freshman, twice as Sophomores, twice as Juniors, and once as Seniors. And after that first year (where the scores were relatively close), none of the games were a blip on the radar. And of course our Varsity beat them those first years too, although one or two of those games were kinda close.

I get that. Longview is a rival of JT only because of her close proximity and how many times they played each other lead is JT's biggest rival.

Right. It's like Marshall and the other East Texas schools... All of them are "rivals" just based on the locations of the teams and the fact that we've played most of them since the 1910s and 1920s. I remember there was an article where Lobo fans were saying their biggest win when they were in school was when they beat JT who was really good. A lot of the players from the 1997 team consider the win in Tyler the best win other than the Killeen Ellison (ranked #10 nationally) game.

 

Again, I guess the hate isn't there for me because I just felt bad for JT, especially in 2004. There weren't many fans on the JT side (go figure, when the team was 1-8) and Kendall Hunter passed the 1000 yard mark on the season... Even the Lobo fans applauded him because there just weren't people in the stands to cheer for them. That all changed a year later when JT got really good, though. They had fans in droves at Lobo Stadium for the big game that sadly never materialized. I feel the same way about Marshall... After our Freshman year, the game was just never close so it's hard to really get up for the "rivalry". Lufkin and Lee were the big ones that gave us fits those years so there's more "hate" there.

Never fun to watch kids play their hearts out and 20 parents in the stands. I'll always cheer for them and say good play when they do something good... They pay the price on the field and they deserve that..

You're a true fan.

 

Again, I always say I'm personally GLAD JT is back as a strong team. I feel like the Longview vs JT rivalry needs to be a good game. In 2006 and 2007 there were some good games. And in 2003 JT should've beaten Longview. Same with 2007. When two historic programs loaded with athletes and talent go at it, it should always be a good game. Throw in the hype and district title implications and you've got one of the biggest regular season games in recent memory for us.

True. And I'm glad Kendall Hunter got to play in front of packed houses the next year. When JT played Lee, it was full to the brim. So was the Longview JT game.

I was living in Wisconsin. Then they are having their bad seasons. I moved back in September of 07.
