    Thoughts on this?

    Not only do we not know all the details, we don't know the truthfulness of the reporting. The school had not commented when the story broke, just "little Johnnies" mom reporting her son had to be hospitalized and "reporters" standing outside a medical facility talking about what she told them...

    State championship future

    All valid points which is why there are divisions in the first place. It was never up for debate. I simply noted that I wasn't a fan of the split in a previous post and somehow that's been misconstrued into a divisional split elimination was being considered. It is not, it won't be. Every...

    State championship future

    All this back and forth about what could/should be done about the divisions is moot. The divisional split is not up for debate. If a school wishes to play 11- man football there is already a vehicle to accommodate that. I'm not even sure that the site for the state games will change, just...

    State championship future

    There are some districts approaching that now, and don't worry, the divisions aren't going anywhere..

    State championship future

    Coach, I'm not suggesting it should or will be moved. Just stating my personal preference IF it is to be moved. I know the divisions are here to stay also. I've had "skin in the game" so to speak for three of the last five years and I attended almost every year whether or not I did.

    State championship future

    They have taken the top two to the playoffs for a while now, even before the division split.

    State championship future

    Nothing for anyone to argue about here. The Coaches Association will make the decision and wherever the games are played those of us that choose to attend will be there. I personally have sat in snow and rain as well as very cold temperatures at playoff games this year. I'm an old man, but I...

    2022 early predictions

    Three out of four picked for the finals is impressive.

    Coaches with most Championships Appearances?

    Not to be argumentative but I believe it's 11. They also lost to Balmorhea in 2020.

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

    I would say this: a coach or school board member who would stubbornly hold on to the notion that they could compete with schools 2-3 times their size is not only absurd, but definitely not acting in their students' best interests, which of course should be job #1 for each. I know it's...

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

    What would the number be if the enrollments were say 105 to 135?

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

    I am not against 8 man at all, just not in favor of diluting the political clout these small schools have now gained through their increasing numbers.

    Most PATs

    Not sure where the stats come from or how far back they go but I know for a fact that Shannon Hopkins kicked 18 consecutive over two games back in the '90's for Strawn. Also had four field goals over 40 yards, two in one game against Trinidad in a game played at Covington. Strawn won by three...

    Is it just me?

    Just noticed this morning that all the playoff games are tagged "Published By UIL". Another example of our tax dollars at work. LOL. Just like all government entities everything they get their hands on turns to 💩, I wish I didn't feel that way but past experience tells me I'm right.

    Future Changes (Suggestions Welcome) 2022-23 Edition

    In peace? I'm not computer savvy enough to know who's who other than by screen names, but very few posts stay on subject and the common highjackers are well known.

    IC vs Abbott

    Would be nice if it worked. As noted in earlier thread NFHS is VERY undependable.

    Is it just me?

    Little bent here. I've had NFHS for over a year now. Worked great until this weekend. Out of 5 games tried watching since Thursday only one worked properly. I know others are also having issues. I never had a problem at all last year. The one difference I see this year is the broadcasts...
