    Richland Springs vs Calvert

    A few years ago no one thought they had a chance against Borden County when they met in Strawn. Borden was in the middle of a winning streak and found out that they were not in shape and had a hard time with Calvert's speed. Calvert beat them at the end. Calvert has always been one of those...

    Richland Springs vs Calvert

    Calvert is well coached and will make a game of it. RS hasn't really been test much, playing mostly weak teams.

    What's the return of Burkhart 'worth' RS?

    UIL needs to clean up RS recruiting, it teaches kids that it is ok to cheat , if it means winning. RS is damaging HS sports, student athletes, and UIL should be ashamed when they look the other way. What is Burkhart worth, nothing when it comes to teaching life lessons about honour, and honesty...

    Does Six-Man Need Richland Springs to win its 9th Title?

    UIL needs to get serious about enforcing recruiting rules. When students see schools cheating or badly twisting the rules it sets a really bad example that will carry the rest of their lives. Ether make recruiting legal or hammer those schools that violate the rules. Those that cheat and twist...

    Can someone explain what the heck happened in the Calvert-BC

    Back 40 years ago in 11 man we started every practice running 2 miles which took less than 15 min to increase endurance in big games. Being a little tired better showed weaknesses that could be worked on. This wasn't the only kind of conditioning that we did by far, but an important part. I...

    Can someone explain what the heck happened in the Calvert-BC

    I was at the game and BC had superior team in almost every area, but they were in poor condition for the long haul. You could see them slowing down as the game progressed. I doubt that they have a XC program or this wouldn’t of happened. If they had run three miles before practice once a week...

    still need a teacher

    This year there will be over 2000 teaching positions that wont be filled in Texas. The numbers for the next several years show the shortage getting much worst. Esp in math, science and tech. Schools may have to treat teachers better and open their check books to get and keep teachers.

    End of oil boom effect?

    Anyone care to speculate how many schools will go six man over the next couple realignments as it appears that the west Texas oil boom is in full retreat. If the sanctions on Iran are lifted, some in the know say we could see oil in the 30s a barrel range. When the oil field workers exit, the...

    Head Job

    Coach Grimes is a class act. I have great respect for him and his family. Calvert has some really good long term teachers, like Cotton, Trotter, and Babers, among others. Most problems at Calvert can be traced to the administration and the mostly white school board who do not have the schools...

    Why some sixman teams can't compete.

    The real problem, many schools want instant gratification. You have school board members and movers and shakers that wants their kid to be the star. They do not look at the long game, it takes several years to put together a 1st class program. One may get lucky and walk in on raw talent and have...

    Richland Springs VS Calvert Rematch......Thoughts

    I thought it would have been closer. RS won the 1st half. Some that think Calvert has poor coaching may want to re-think that. The Calvert coaches inspired their plays to come out and turn things around and put it to RS. They out hit,out worked RS, and played with more passion. In the 3rd...
