what's the story? will it be Hico (not now apparently), Abilene, Dublin, Deleon, or are we going to have to flip?

Every one was expecting a quick announcement that the game would be in Hico, but JB probably thinks Strawn would have a Home field advantage there because how often they have played there recently. Maybe they can agree to play there on Thursday since those other teams picked up the Friday 7 pm time slot. Its not like many of the fields in the area will have games being played this week, most schools are playing basketball now.

Geographically, I would guess either Dublin or Comanche since Stephenville is probably more in Strawn's "backyard" while Brownwood is probably more in Richland 's "backyard." Richland played a lot of the 04-05 playoff games in Comanche but hasn't as much since. Is Dublin's stadium big enough? We are in the right ball park as Strawn and Richland played in Early in 2009.

They will probably play in Comanche or something like flip San Saba against Cisco. Abilene is a lot farther for both of them but would be an epic venue.

Play at Blackwell on Saturday. 2hr drive for both (very reasonable), 6man turf field, best concession stand. No field advantage for either school as they haven't played there I believe ever. Blackwell folks are friendly and accommodating. Sure they wouldn't mind hosting either

Robert Lee is a good site for a big game as well

(dont give me the it's out of the way speech either)

Don’t think San Saba is an option

Friday night I guess?

How did you get this news in Borden County? I thought Hico a bit small for a QF but the Semi?

Nor would be Mineral Wells. Especially after they snubbed Strawn - Gordon on Turkey Day.

Yes it is. There or say Glen Rose would seem appropriate.

I heard Darrell K. Royal Memorial stadium but someone else told me it was going to be at the Algerita Professional Multi Sports Complex.

I heard that they playing games down in RS as usual. Whenever JB thinks he's got problems he starts the mind games. I am guessing that the Strawn folks are used to this bs.

I wondered how long it would take before the JB derangement syndrome people would start up again.
