  1. I’m GUESSING Duane moves on after this year. I don’t see him sticking this out if the cupboard is as bare as everyone is saying. A coach like him won’t have trouble landing in a better situation.  
  2. Lipan

    Actually they played Three Way. It’s a tiny ISD outside of Stephenville. 
  3. They might come out of Region IV because it is generally the weakest region, but I was extremely unimpressed the one time I saw Liberty Hill this year. Silsbee would run them out of the gym. Decatur is an interesting team who looks to be the favorite out of Region 1. They have a 6’7 or so post that can play, a guard/forward who is solid and they play really solid team defense. Most importantly they play really well together and are extremely, extremely well coached.  I think they had a better team two years ago. They were district champs that year, Argyle finished second and we know how tough they were at the state tournament.   Anyways, Silsbee/Decatur would be an interesting matchup similar to the matchup with Silsbee/Argyle two years ago.
  4. Was that A. Farias led team? He could play.
  5. Hardin and Anahuac fluctuated between 2A and 3A in the 90’s and early 2000’s.  EC stayed 2A.  
  6. They had some kids they could go from 2000-2004 ish. Think they moved up in class around 2004 which slowed their success, then the loss of Joubert obviously hurt.
  7. Saratoga West Hardin

    No it was after that around 2001-2004 or 05.  They had a couple of 8-2, 7-3 type seasons which is about the best there ever had in back to back seasons. Westfall didn't get there until 04 or 05.
  8. Saratoga West Hardin

    Nah. Their best years were right before Westfall when they were still 2A(now 3A). District champs(tied with East Chambers I think) one year, and runner up another. Loss in playoffs to state champ Garrison. They should have done more, much more when they dropped to 1A and Westfall was the coach.  Letsinger and Copeland are about as solid as you could find in 1A in this area at that time, and a first round exit is all they had to show for it. 
  9. It kills me to see Allen win in anything, but their coach does an excellent job with them.  Still think Guyer was probably the best team in Texas this year.
  10. Give me..... Lipan Bowie Thorndale Northwest(in a close game) Silsbee(in a close game) Allen  
  11. Northwest has one of the better point guards in the Class of 19, Avery Anderson. They also have a man child OU football commit who is their 6th man. I think they are the favorite to win, but Memorial can beat them.
  12. Excited for this game. Rematch from a playoff warmup game a few weeks ago in which Bowie won by 15 or so. Should be a low scoring, fundamental affair. Bowie is coached by the elder Boxell, who won state a couple of times with Ponder. I think he wins it this year too.
  13. I think the winner of Brock and Bowie tomorrow wins state. And I think Bowie may surprise Brock tomorrow.
  14. Agree. Bo Outlaw could play a little bit too.
  15. That's fine, but didn't Jones leave last year yet K'Ville still thought enough of Coach B to keep him around for this year? If they wanted to get rid of him last year after the season would seem like the time to do it. I don't have enough interest in Kirbyville to continue this conversation, just think it's pretty damn unprofessional the way it was handled. Good luck to all involved.
