My senior season, in 1971, Adidas came out with a shoe called the Adidas Superlite .... they had hard rubber cleats and they came in white ... I think they were like soccer shoes ... My coach gave me a pair because I was one of the team captains ... They weighed about 1/3 of what the old black shoes with the long screw in cleats weighed ... There was a lot of criticism because a few of us were wearing white cleats and we looked different .... I liked them because they were very light and were far better than the old black heavy cleats ...

Do old school folks think coaches need to be dressed for Sunday night church or are the run dmc starter kits acceptable to y’all?
Cap, blue jeans , polo shirt for coaches.
I always felt good when Doomer was misspelling his words on purpose, it made me feel safe

Does this assume Hatten and Bell play or watch?
As Cotton mentioned, having a 90% or better Bell will be very beneficial in slowing down GR’s offense when they go uptempo. It’s all about fresh legs and good reads. For this particular matchup, Hatten is less valuable IMO as Carthage will be able to run the ball like they did vs PG. Having one less WR won’t impact the game plan as much. Basically, I’m saying Carthage can win without Hatten. I’d much rather have a healthy Hatten next week in the big game if it were my choice.

It is the worst I've ever seen. Kids wearing highlighters on their feet. Coaches are allowing it to seem supportive and cool to kids, while saying they have bigger things than shoes to worry about to adults. I don't see it as much in football or baseball. See it a lot in shoe choices with soccer and basketball. It's bigger than most think. Just another movement towards ME FIRST CULTURE

I've mention this and I dont really want to bring it up but Aledo has an uphill battle. Yeah LV is ranked #1. Yeah they have an elite running game. Yeah they have a defense that averages giving up less than 10 ppg. Yeah they have a cult following that travels well. Yeah LV has an extra day rest. Yeah the game is outside. Yeah its gonna rain. But the thing I am most concerned with is the Denton Ryan curse.
Round 1- Denton Ryan loses Red Oak
Round 2- Red Oak loses to Abilene
Round 3- Abilene loses to Burleson Centennial
Round 4- Burleson Centennial loses to Aledo
This trend is very real.
Meaning we will win this week and lose next week? ?
