    I'm sitting in Cheddars about to eat so I don't have much time but I received a 20 minute and 44 second phone call from one of the "Admin Powers" yesterday on this entire topic wanting to know my and the community's concerns about United football.  And I didn't hold back, I was actually more controlled last night because I only had 2 and half minutes...

    Both.  In Beaumont, both can happen.  A city that produced a champion in '82 and a co-champion in 84 can have schools with deep playoff runs and significant amounts of scholarship offers

    I understand that it might not logistically make since, but a consolidation of those schools seems what’s best from an athletic perspective. That being said, I can imagine the issues what would cause in terms of housing students and creating a functional learning environment.

    According to a recent article, isn’t the defense ranked in the top 3 in the district?

    Sure is frustrating winning football games, a share of the district championship and earning a favorable seed in the playoffs. Yeah, frustrating is a good word for that.

    If Shug was the featured RB, would anyone complain that he got too many carries? Did people flip when JC got 35+ carries per game for PAM, Mosley for Ned or even Bertrand for PNG? NO, because the QB threw 10-20 passes a game so it felt like it was distributed. So PNGs featured back just so happens to be it’s QB. GET OVER IT. Shug has good vision, hits the hole quick and runs hard. Deslatte does same (injured). Conner does as well in the limited action I’ve seen, but he doesn’t have the experience that allows BF and company to be comfortable enough to get him more carries and pick up blitzes, etc. this late in season against (SF, BH and Ned) top three. Beyond that, well...Shug gets 25+ carries!

    FRUSTRATING???? The TEAM just won those games. I don’t care what team or what coach you are if you have RJ, you are going to utilize him to the fullest!

    Yeah buddy - I killed it in the woodwinds. 1st chair as a freshman, had an article in the paper and everything.
    I understand his parents’ trepidation towards his carries in high school, and the potential for wear and tear. I also understand a coach using his best offensive weapon while he has it. Nobody at PNG was worried when Bergeron, Gouhlke or Hemmings was toting the rock 30+ times a game. Some of y’all were begging for this kid to go both ways last year. 
    Point is: Parents want to secure his future - Coaches want to secure theirs.

    I understand that - isn’t RJ one of the top 5 leading rushers in the history of PNG. One could say his ability to run the football makes up a substantial part of that offense due to his God-given talents and hard work. I would assume neither Doty nor Morse were the runners he is. 
    After doing a little digging, I found the following info in regards to Herman and his QBs:
    2014 (Ohio State) JT Barrett: 938 yards/11 TDs 
    2015 (Houston) Greg Ward Jr: 1114 yards/21 TDs
    I don’t believe he’ll run the ball 30+ times At UT, but we’re delusional if we don’t think his ability to run the ball wont be incorporated in the offense.
