How are they already looking for games for next year when they don't know where they will fall in the new alignment, who will be in district with them and whether it will be a 6 or 8 team district?

He is probably just trying to get a head start on games, its hard for Newton to get games to the earlier you start looking the better. A lot of teams already have a scheduled together more than you think do anyway.

I am pretty sure that teams that don't get a tentative schedule in place before realignment end up scrambling to get opponents to play them in the slots they need filled. That's how you get teams traveling an absurd distance to play one another or not having a full schedule. I bet there won't be a ton of 5A or 4A teams lining up to get their butt kicked by a 3A team. Doesn't really do wonders for the prospect of keeping your job as a coach.

We end up traveling an absurd distance to play "district rivals" like Navasota.

A lot of folks have to get a huge start on this as some schools have difficulty finding schools that will play them.

There is one 4A team that is ready to give it a go.

I wouldn't mind seeing Woodville and Newton play. Newton would obviously be the favorite to win, but I think it would be a more competitive game than most people think. 

I mean... 40 something to 14 kinda competitive?

That is good to hear.  Both the Eagles and the Mustangs have problems finding opponents so when they can get together, it is a great game that makes both teams better in the long run.

Not true, WOS has LCM, Nederland, Silsbee, Jasper and Bridge City hopefully line up.

I still think Newton finds their way on the schedule. Would probably benefit more from playing them then pretty much every team other than Nederland .

As sad as it sounds.. Newton vs WOS would be more beneficial to each other (as far as game preparation) than most of the other schools the 2 of them usually play pre-season.

And I mean sad that WOS may have to play a 3A school to get a competitive game.

It's all fun and games until you lose a key player or two for the year in what would later be called a "meaningless" pre-season game against a tough school.

I'm just saying... Everybody is gung-ho about playing tough competition in non-district and getting better right up until the point at which they lose a couple of key players to injury before district.  Then everybody is like "we would be going to state but the stupid  coach keeps scheduling teams that we have no chance of beating, and now we're missing __________, ____________, and ____________.... those kids will probably not even get to play college ball now.  And for what?  So that the coach beats a few good schools and can move on to a better job?" 

I've seen it all before.

    • ALCS- Astros vs Yankees
      Better known as the kitchen sink mob.
    • Port Neches-Groves @ Beaumont Central
      Well here you go then. Alot are picking this to be a blowout. I will assure you it want.  From the start I picked PNG to win the District and I said a couple of weeks ago that they would beat PAM. They will struggle against central.  The strength of central defense is there secondary. Png wrs will see more man coverage then they have seen all year. And press coverage will bother them.and PAM showed wat not to do wen u get a lead.conserverative on both side of the ball.lets not bring up refs lol. But if png is able to run the ball on them.long nite jags. 28-21 either way. And it want surprise me if central won.
    • Lufkin 50 Beaumont West Brook 7/FINAL
      Thank goodness boy wonder didn’t start for WB. No telling how bad Lufkin would have won.
