Thanksgiving Truths in D1

If you look at the data - particularly the points scored against a team, I'm thinking Abbott may well be better than Rankin, Jonesboro, Garden City and Irion County.

Happy and Westbrook... Maybe not. The next couple of weeks is going to be some good ball. Whoever comes out on top will surely have earned it. There are 5-6 teams that could pull it off.
I'm not cutting Abbott down but if they have played a weaker schedule then yes they will have a higher points scored number.

I’m sitting here reading these comments and it kinda makes me chuckle, I mean no disrespect to anyone playing but can you really call yourself a champ when there’s two divisions instead having one like we use to, I remember back then you had to go through everyone to be called a champ nowadays it seems like they made it easy for schools to get championships, how I wish they would have it like they use to from way back when, then and only then if you won state you could say I beat them instead of saying this team had an easy schedule or whatever the case may be, anyway good luck to all the teams out there play strong and stay safe.

Man, do I wish they would play each champ in one final game, even if just for bragging rights.

Maybe not overrated but definitely under tested. Like I said previously I hope they are everything they say and more. I hope IC and Jonesboro are as well cause I’m telling ya the west has definitely been in battles all season. They know how to respond when punched in the mouth. That builds tons of character and trust in a team. Hard to beat talent, coaches, character, trust and belief. To be clear I’m not saying Abbott deliberately had an easy schedule we all get that scheduling is tuff. Districts are what they are, you either have talented teams or ya don’t. I think some people here think that some of us are disrespecting Abbott. Not the case at all. I say it again I hope Abbott or Jonesboro or IC can win state. I’m an East guy. But overall this season in my opinion the west has had the tougher schedule
After watching them play tonight, I’ll say it… Overrated is the correct term. No disrespect to Gordon, a very young team who gave them a fight, but there are multiple teams out west who would wipe the floor with Abbott. In the East….May, IC, Jonesboro I feel could all handle them easily. Not impressed at all. IC/Jonesboro will determine who represents the East

So ya, that's ridiculous now a days with so many small schools but I do see your point. Would be hard to have bigger districts and more district games than regular season games but it could be done. Will it ever happen, No.
