The rivalry on I-30 continues this week.
You lost me right there. And it loses me every year
I haven't seen Marshall's new offense so I'm flying blind here. I'll say Marshall but this game could go either way IMO. Texas High did not really move the ball as easily on the ground as I expected. Hallsville's pass defense was pretty bad but that doesn't seem to be a major cause of concern in this game. The Bobcats have a nice QB and that Garza kid is a beast.
Very hard game to predict. It think a lot will depend on who can get ahead. I won't be surprised either way here. Marshall has the kind of offense you can't really prepare for so every team that plays them better take them seriously
Riders by 14!
I know this is the Garrison / Joaquin thread. I will stop with the Sville stuff.
I was just responding to some of the comments about the fiasco in Joaquin Friday night.

Oh no. We're guilty of it too. People say it's always been like this but I can 100% for a fact tell you it wasn't from 2007 to 2010. But I can tell you the exact moment it started back up. Shelbyville made a hire in 2013 and than man came to Shelbyville and almost instantly just pure hatred seemed to manifest itself on everything Dragon related. The man showed his butt on the field after a game was cancelled do to weather and Tenaha wouldn't make it up the next day because they had a students funeral to attend. Right then I personally decided I hated him and if the Lord sent me to the bad place for it I was fine with it and I still am to this day. It just got worse from there I swear on my children that if you watch the 2015 film you see #1 from Joaquin get hit 75% of the plays he was in regardless of when he had handed the ball off. There was a player who's job it was to plant that kid every play and I promise you he was told to do it. The kid would literally hand the ball off and see his teammate get tackled and begin walking to the sideline to get the next play and BOOM he gets ear holed. And it was celebrated by the vast majority of the people in the visiting bleachers. Then as everyone knows that coach ended up doing something that shocked NOBODY and he was gone but the hatred didn't stop. This is just my opinion and I speak for nobody but my self, This is karma and it's well deserved.
I remember all of this and I agree about the coach.
He was a lunatic and carried things way too far.
After he caught the assault/family violence charge he had to resign.
Eventually the charges were dropped and a lot of Sville people wanted him back. To include youth coaches, board members and people from all walks within the community.
For this I have no words.

I wasn't there because of work but I watched it filmed from the Shelbyville sideline on social media and it miraculously cuts off before it gets bad and it makes Joaquin look like the aggressor. The game video was deleted from YouTube but if you'd like a better view of what happened you can add me on Facebook and I'd be glad to send you the game footage of it. This could be a nail in the coffin or it could be a turning point for that program and as someone with kids I pray that it's the turning point because those kids who didn't act stupid and those kids sitting in the stands waiting for their turn to be a Dragon deserve better.
Oh I've seen all the footage! It was bad.
Message me and I will add you on Facebook.

Yoe defense will get better if the two inside linebackers improve and 16 stays healthy. Yoe fans wait and see how the defense holds up against LRA. The district is wide open --= any bodies guess who will finish 1st. Lorena and their run stop defense should be a interesting match up against Franklin.
Yes, Lorena will match up well with Franklin up front. It's dissapointing that the Yoemen had to give up those 2 points at the end of the Lorena game on the safety as points could potentially come into play. All because whomever was running the clock in Lorena has no idea what they're doing. I've run the clock on Thursday and Friday, and it's totally inexcusable to not start the clock in that situation. But, it was wrong pretty much the entire night.
