    Is this a bad time to remind Tragic Johnson that Sigler is African-American?

    Kinda funny how this works. 2 people 60 ft apart hitting a tennis ball back and forth is too dangerous, but piling 2000 kids into a school for 8 hours should be safe.

    What happened to being Texans? Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad! Now it’s “self isolate”, and elbow-bump. We cancel the Houston Rodeo? I’m ashamed; I expect this in California and New York. Sucks for all the seniors.

    Ahh the race debate again... Well as me being an African-American myself the stuff you just alluded to does not even matter and why should you even care? The best teams from each region made it wherever they are a predominantly black or white team so it should not matter. Honestly I like to see an all white team make it to state because that should let you know that talent runs deeper than race but I will be rooting for Yates simply because I don't like Dallas area teams wherever it's basketball or other sports.

    *2020 State Tournament Brackets*

    What is it with folks trying to apply race to dang near everything these days? Conspiracy theory with the UIL on the pairings at state tourney??? RIDICULOUS!!! UIL has done their pairings by win percentage for many, many years. Top two teams by win percentage get placed opposite of bracket then the other two teams are drawn/flipped for to see who plays who. Where is the conspiracy? It's completely a coincidence that two predominantly black schools are facing each other in semifinals. That's it. What about the conspiracy theory that could be taken that the UIL, with these pairings, has guaranteed that a predominantly black school will be in the finals? What about that? BTW, Stafford is a predominantly black school. Argyle is the only predominantly white school of these final four schools. Conspiracy theory? Racially motivated decisions? GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

    👆 I don’t care if anyone agrees or disagrees with it, that was a well-written, well-reasoned post. They probably didn’t start it, but Odessa Permian certainly perfected the “recruiting process” during the Oil Boom in the 70s and 80s. Unlike Yates, the big selling point was financial remuneration. Dads got jobs, Moms got jobs. Families got homes. And an above average football program was turned into a powerhouse/dynasty. Bissinger wrote a fantastic book on the town, the program, and the issues of race that still plagued the area at the end of the 80s. Why he didn’t delve more into that aspect of Mojo I guess only he can answer. Because it was certainly there and no secret in West Texas and elsewhere. But no one said Boo about it Yates didn’t invent that wheel (or HF or EC or whomever else you want to bring up about HS “move ins”). They are merely operating under rules that have probably been skirted since the UiL came into existence.

    Lets hope so. The way HS sports is now most kids want to play ball no matter what sport they're playing. The more kids a school signs, chances of more players coming out increases. Look at BC for example, labeled a baseball school because so many kids just play baseball because they have a chance of playing at the next level. I'd be willing to bet if BC got all of the baseball kids on the football field they would be better. Side note, Johnny Dishon and younger brother both played football at BC, 1 went to LSU and the other to Ole Miss for baseball. BRING BACK THE MULTI SPORT ATHLETE AND ATHLETICS WILL BECOME BETTER.

    A friend of mine referenced an article a while back that basically said that no matter which side of the spectrum your beliefs fall, both sides have seen their own savaged repeatedly so it’s just acceptable at this point. It goes back to Nixon, if not farther. Think about it. Nixon was a crook. Carter was a terrible leader. Reagan supported the rich and had Iran-Contra. Bush raised taxes and didn’t finish the Gulf War. Clinton had Whitewater and Lewinsky, Bush started the Iran/Afghanistan wars and was seated when the recession of ‘08 kicked in. Obama gave us Obamacare and reined in growth with anti-business policies.... not to mention the fact that a lot of people didn’t like him because of who he was. Lord knows that Trump deserves tons of criticism, but the amount that he’s given is just too much. Until both sides agree that people with opposing views aren’t “the opposition,” we’ll just keep on electing people just to destroy them, never realizing that we’re only destroying our own fortunes.

    I'll never forgotten what he did in the Region 3 Final a couple of years ago against Yates. He played his heart out and his contribution to the victory was decisive, he was the difference. Near the end, when he'd given everything he had to give and more, in total exhaustion he got wobbly and just folded up collapsing to the floor. I've never seen such effort and total commitment, right up to the point of endangering himself. That's something very, very special that doesn't come around often.

    Lumberton recently won their first ever playoff game in basketball. The school board reacted swiftly by firing the super. The community is well aware that winning starts at the top, so they wanted to nip "winning" in the bud.

    I hear what you are saying but the fact still stands. It is against UIL policy to transfer for athletic reasons. If kids are recruiting kids, and they move because they want to play with their friends, then that is the basis of transferring for athletic purposes. That is what is being discussed. At least from my end.

    Hey HF you have no reason to hang your heads what you’ve accomplished this season was unprecedented. There are a lot of grown ppl hurt by the fact some kids are achieving their dreams and defying the odds. No matter what gets said about your coach I’m sure you know the truth and how he has helped you grow everyday not just in basketball but in life . Keep pushing and grinding because it only gets harder but I know you kids will up for the task. To the the true COACH OF THE YEAR TIGEE RIDEAUX , I know your a competitor inside and out just keep leading your program in the right direction and block out all the negativity. There will always be roadblocks the only way is thru them,around them or over them .

    An assistant men’s basketball coach at Lamar posted this on Facebook. Good, good stuff from a young man about to become a father: “Been in thought The last couple days as I’m sure everyone has. In a few weeks I’ll have a daughter. She will be born during one of the scariest and most uncertain times in our worlds history. And I will have to have conversations with her as she grows up on why the world is the way it is. It might be conversations as to why there is so much hate, and divide. Why certain groups won’t associate with others and a list of other things. About how an unseen enemy divided our world even further than what it is now. However, I hope that in ten years I can tell her she was born during the most proud time in our worlds history. A time that our world and country turned to God, turned to decency and turned to eachother. When politics, and differences were put aside and the world came together for a common goal and prevailed. And in turn those conversations aren’t difficult but they’re prideful, talking about the pivot point in our worlds history! Pray for eachother, pray for our leaders and pray for our future. ‘If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and PRAY, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways. Then I will hear from heaven and I will forgive their sin and I will heal their land’ “

    Everyone about to get a $1,000 check?

    I have a solution. Accept it and buy gift certificates to local restaurants, and then do with them what you like (you could even donate to local “feed the hungry” type charities). Win-win. Besides, while declining may be noble (well, IS noble) in principle, I know good and well you’ve paid more than your fair share in taxes.

    I am glad that you brought up Odessa Permian, them and Ector County ISD were the UIL originators of strategically making decisions for athletic purposes. Those decisions that were made was strickly about race. EC ISD wanted those athletes that were originally zoned to Odessa High to attend Permian after de-segregation, so they strategically re-zoned the district in the 70's and early 80's to make this happen. I have good friends who played football for Permian and their parents and other family members taught at Permian and other schools in the district. I have a lot of knowledge from insiders on how Permian became a football powerhouse. Trust me there was a lot of illegal and unethical practices going on to make that happen. And like you said, no one said a mumbling word about the situation. Buzz's book Friday Night Lights just exposed some of the things that were going on. If he wrote about everything, the book would be probably more than a 1000 pages, lol. He is no longer welcomed in Odessa.

    Democrats have been profiting off of suffering for decades...it's called welfare. Throw your voters some crumbs and promise crumbs for the future but do not offer opportunities that would lift them to the level of independence and risk losing their vote. What the Democrats have been doing for decades is pathetic and shameful. You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before. Rahm Emanuel

    *2020 State Tournament Brackets*

    AAW, I agree with you with on this. The UIL has always used this process of pairing teams for the state tournament. Yates has played both Kimball and Madison each twice for the State Championship and Lancaster once for the title game. All three schools are predominantly African-American schools in the Dallas area. And Yates have played schools like The Colony, Brookshire Royal, and Kennedale which are not predominantly African-American schools in the state semi-finals. Like you said it is coincidental, luck of the draw, or whatever you want to call it when it comes to these pairings at the state tournament. However, racially motivated decisions happens in all aspects of life. So I understand where SportsJunkie is coming from. From politics, business, work, education, etc., race plays a huge part. Some people in America are culturally conditioned to believe that white is superior and black is inferior. That conditioning is believed by both black and white people. Most of the time, people don't even realize that they conditioned to believe this. African-Americans are undervalued, underestimated, and marginalized all of the time. Since this particular forum is strictly about High School sports I will keep it right here. For example kids transfer for different reasons, however the vitriol in the comments I see in these posts for Yates, I don't see when people talk about Argyle, Katy, Aledo and many other schools that have transfers in. The difference in these schools and Yates is that Yates is predominantly African-American and the other schools are predominantly White. They may mentioned the dislike for these schools doing this, but not with the same intensity and hatred. When people get on here and talk about Yates Magnet Communications Progam, they are being condescending thus culturally conditioned to believe that program is not that good because it is a black school and always been a black school since it's inception. However we have national syndicated columnist and news reporters who have graduated from that same program. Most people on this site do not even realize every high school in HISD has a magnet program associated it. On yesterday's hot topic of the 22-4A all district selection, you could see that same vitriol and hate for the HF coach and it has been going on for a while. I don't know the coach and have never met him but when the topic of HF's turnaround came about earlier in the season, I knew he was a black man based on the comments. Anyone who can turn a program that has been a dumpster fire for years into a play-off team in one season deserves to be the COTY, period. Let's not bring up the transfer issue in this, because we all know that many schools have benefited from that. I have been following this site for a while now and I have seen the comments with racial undertones. So let's not act like racism does not play a part on what goes on in America, this site or on the high school level. This site has posters that will go on the political thread and post some racially motivated rants and then come on the sports threads and congratulate the African-American athletes. Which leads me to believe that some are only accepting of these kids for what they can do on the football field or the basketball court. It's a school right there in southeast Texas in you guys coverage area that is guilty of that right now with the acceptance of athletes and non-acceptance of regular students who are both African-American. That issue was strictly about race and cultural conditioning. Plus I have read comments from posters on this site calling certain communities code words like "ghetto and thugs." They were not talking about the white people from these communities, they were talking about the black people from these communities. There have been many issues concerning race in the different communities in SE Texas and in the whole state and it is not just limited to high school athletics. If you would like to have a intelligent conversation about this issue or any other issues in person, I too will be at the state tournament in San Antonio this weekend.

    I guess this would be an equally bad time to remind Tragic that Josh Mitchell (Lumberton) and Bill Barstow (WO-S) are "EUROPEAN AMERCIAN." Look, if you don't agree with the pick for COTY, that's fine. But to try and forward this bull that this was a "racial" vote given that an African-American was selected and by your own tally (which can't even be trusted) two white coaches voted for your favorite is something that is not appropriate for this forum as is indicating it was the case for selection of the all-district team. You want to talk race, we have a political forum for that. Leave it there.

    More embarrassed than bitter. My school district hasn't always been the best athletically, but it's always been a good school district that did things right and we always put academics first. There has always been talent at HF, but we've missed on coaching hires basically since Jeff Keener. This latest hire is a miss too. Those transfers haven't always lived in HF and the new ones won't either and everyone knows it. I'd rather lose with our kids and coaches who do it right than openly break the rules and then brag about how great they are. Nobody is buying it. I'm old enough to know that winning isn't everything. It's not bravery to point out something is wrong. For what it's worth I've made my opinion known to the principal, AD, and superintendent at HF so I'm not hiding behind an anonymous message board.

    This is similar to how United went out last year. A team knows they can’t guard Kasen individually so you pack it in and make them shoot and cut off all driving lanes. You have to prepare to face all kinds of defenses in the playoffs you will see it all. Anyways good season BU ...

    I have said all season long that 22-2A was a beast of a district. Still have three teams in the playoffs and I predict 2 will make regional tourney (guaranteed that one will). They will have a Regional Quarterfinal doubleheader Tuesday night at SFA. District champ Shelbyville will take on Gary at 6pm then San Augustine will face district mate Tenaha at 8pm. If I wasn't broadcasting Silsbee's game Tuesday night this is where I would be.
