    Globull Warming, er, Cooling, er, Climate Change!!!

    Bearkat ... My rule is when anyone is predicting the end of the world or some other calamity which will end life as we know it, always take the over on the bet. They may be right some day, but you'll win most of those bets.

    Who could or should add football

    If you're worried about injuries and fatalities, maybe you should put the kibosh on cheerleading. As someone once told me, any padding in a cheerleader outfit wasn't put there for safety purposes. A number of years ago, I did a presentation on starting a six-man football (non-coaching issues)...

    Wimberley Six Man Info

    A number of years ago, I was in Wimberley and came across an article that said they had a 6 man team (40s-50s?). They went by another mascot name (the 11-man HS team is the Texans), If I can find the info, I'll try to post it.

    UIL Reclassification and Realignment Information

    For my 2 cents worth (and perhaps overpriced at that), I'd prefer a 6 team district over a 4 team district. Problem with 4 team districts is you have to make it to week 8 healthy because you can be 7-0 but if you lose those last 3, you're sitting at home. At least with a larger district...

    So what? If the call isn't made, it's not a penalty. And you really have to slow the film down to see, perhaps, a split second movement by Kramer. I suggest that if you ran many plays that slow, you'd see the same thing. After 50 some years, memories fail :). And under the rules at the...

    Was watching the NFL network Saturday morning (after midnight) and they had the Ice Bowl special that was done by Don Meredith's son. Although I am a (1) Lifelong Packer Fan (2) Packers Shareholder and (3) Packers Season ticket holder, having grown up about 40 miles from Green Bay (11 years...

    Who could or should add football

    Another school that would be a good six-man candidate is Tilden-McMullen (South Texas). I know there were some parents that wanted to start the game a number of years ago and I was invited to meet with them and appear before their school board, but nothing came of it. The school (in the...

    Sink hole under Richland Springs trophy display

    I used to tell Jerry Burkhart that the school district probably needed to float a bond issue for a new trophy case. It probably collapsed from the weight of all those trophies.

    Questions about Private Schools in 6-Man Football

    Again, I've been out of the loop with private six man for a couple years. But many private schools are PK-12 schools, so comparing a school's enrollment for 13+ classes vs. a UIL school 9-12 enrollment is really apples to oranges. When I was involved in Seguin Lifegate's program. we had a...

    New privates in the 6 man ranks

    I know Pasadena FIrst Baptist was a six-man school for awhile, didn't they move to TCAL for awhile and also play 11 man. I believe the other three were crowded field football schools in the past.

    A Long and Rambling End

    Granger .... I hadn't been doing my little end of this for anywhere near 28 years, but I understand when it is time for things to come to an end. Your service and leadership in building six-man football in Texas to the point where books, television shows, and movies, as well as live televison...

    Congrats to Vance Jones!!

    Congratulations to Coach Jones on another state title and the Bears on their state title. Congrats as well to Coach Burkhart and the Coyotes. 9-2 in state title games is a record a lot of schools and coaches would kill for. And then, Granger Huntress on the broadcast. A six-man trifecta!
