  1. District 12-5a Div 2

    Yeah, that win against Santa Fe is looking better and better
  2. Why would Dayton not try to get a play off with 19 seconds left in the 3rd and down 16? Are those coaches playing to win, or just to end the game? They aren't exactly sticking with PNG, but the game isn't quite out of reach. 
  3. Santa Fe 27 Crosby 20/FINAL

    That's tough. Rooting for ya'll. Though, maybe Santa Fe is just that good? They are going to be a tough out for PNG 
  4. Crosby @ Santa Fe

    Crosby comes out furious after losing a winnable heartbreaker last week. Crosby 42 Santa Fe 14

    Re: 100+ teachers and/or coaches being laid off. This is why I never judge coaches for leaving schools for better opportunities. People have to worry about their own families and prospects. When the coaches and the schools negotiate, they do so at arm's length, and nothing is expected from either party beyond fulfillment of that contract. Schools (college and high schools) burn their employees all the time, either through mismanagement, or just plain stupidity. If a coach has a couple bad years, everyone is calling for their job. But we are often much more ready to condemn coaches when they choose go somewhere else, as if they have "let down the kids," or the school, or the community, etc. If a coach or a teacher thinks they have a better chance to succeed somewhere else, even if it is only because they think they can get more money, I say more power to them -- For all they know their school will be bankrupt next year.

    100% agree -- I hadn't ever thought of it, but let's just have a D as good as Nederland's. We have a really good offense. Our offense, year in and year out, can score on most teams in the state. Let's have a D like Nederland. This is one of the more insightful observations I've read on this site.

    I think Crosby must have punted in their first series, because we scored first and they had the ball first. I'm not aware of PNG getting any interceptions or fumbles. Crosby's QB completed just about everything he let out of his hand. He is going to a ridiculously good QB, already is a really good QB. I think he is a sophomore, but I might be wrong. Our defense did enough to win (that is, slow them down a little bit), but we are going to have be much better. I think, in our defense (no pun intended), defenses across the state have gotten worse. Look at the Big 12, which is populated with hundreds of Texas players, and look at how bad the defenses have been over the last several years. Some of that is a function of how hard the spread is to cover for high school kids -- It requires a very technical, smart approach to defense. Some of that might be a function of where teams are choosing to put their best personnel. In any case, teams with good defenses are rare. Very rare. West Orange is the only team I can think of off the top of my head with a consistently good defense. PAM usually has a solid defense. Everyone else has a vulnerable defense. I don't know how to fix it, and I certainly wouldn't know how to coach it.

    Dayton knocked us out in 2011 and in 2014. We finally beat them in 2015, by one point. 
  9. District 12-5a Div 2

    Crosby can beat Nederland. Nederland is not invincible. If I were a Nederland fan, I would worry about how they haven't really been tested in district yet. Crosby tends to play well against Nederland. Not saying it will be easy. The road to district championships goes through Nederland, most years. 
  10. PNG@Dayton

    Nothing but respect for Dayton. They knocked us out the playoffs in 2011 and 2014. I don't know what the series record is, but Dayton is scary, no matter what season it is and no matter what their record shows. PNG wins in a tough game against a team with nothing to lose. Let's hope both teams escape injury free. 
  11. Barbers Hill 49 Vidor 34/FINAL

    I'm excited for this game. Both teams are better than the record shows. 
  12. Port Neches-Groves 48 Crosby 45/FINAL

    Hahaha Ahh dang I didn't mean that Crosby-PNG is a "rivalry" at the PNG-Ned level. More of the broad definition of the word. Like Vidor's made-up rivalry with Nederland. 
  13. Port Neches-Groves 48 Crosby 45/FINAL

    Those Crosby football helmets are awesome. 
  14. Port Neches-Groves 48 Crosby 45/FINAL

    For sure -- I hope it didn't sound like I was correcting you in any way. Trolling Nederland is to be encouraged.
