    electric grid

    That is another physical impossibility. How are you going to charge the batteries in your electric fire trap if the grid cannot support it. Remember, there are losses of at least 1% at every step, more likely 3%, in getting the electricity to your house, charging your car, then selling the...

    Need 1973 & 1981 All-State Teams

    I know they did one in 1973. I can also tell you no one from GC was on it. The QB from Sterling City was picked is the only one I remember. Sterling City and Borden County dominated. There was Woody Lyons from Smyer who was picked (that guy could jump too! State champ high jumper).

    8-Man - Lets Revisit This Topic Again Because...Why Not

    The same thing happened to Garden City their first 2-3 years back in 6 man. They had enough kids out to make a varsity squad and 2 JV squads. Their last year in 11 man they barely had enough for a 11 man varsity squad.

    A few other private schools, but no government schools. Yes it was Oak Trail Shores in Granbury. I went to a couple of games they played back in the mid 1980's.

    8-Man - Lets Revisit This Topic Again Because...Why Not

    8 man can either be a speed game like 6 man or a power game more like 11 man depending on which size field you play on. If you play on a 40X80 field, it is more of a power game. If you play on a 50X100 field, speed becomes more dominant. I think the Oklahoma 8 man teams play on a 50X100 field.

    8-Man - Lets Revisit This Topic Again Because...Why Not

    OK, I'll finally bite on this one. Everyone knows I like 8 man since I played it when I was in high school at GC. Travel will be a bear for the ones who go. let's suppose the UIL decides below 75 is 6 man, 75 to 110 8 man and above 110 11 man. Based on the latest enrollment figures, here's the...
