  1. I guess people forget about his very mediocre stint in Marble Falls? Nothing against the man personally but wasn't Cameron Yoe, Southlake AND West Lake winning before he was there. Oh, and hasn't Southlake and Cameron been successful since he left?
  2. I wouldn't necessarily say it's not as important but rather more competitive with admin in the DFW than it is in SETX. They're in a situation in a lot of DFW schools where they have to build to compete with the Joneses in getting kids in. A lot of SETX schools still have guys that "played back then" without anything like that and don't realize that facility upgrades are things that are important. A lot of school personnel also only think it'll service football but it'll take care of other sports throughout the whole year. They preach they want what's best for the kids but it's all about conv
  3. I hope you're right. I've seen really good coordinators take head gigs and struggle not because of coaching but because of gene pool.
  4. Most DFW schools have them...not all. If there's anywhere in Texas that schools need them the most I'd say SETX does. Y'all know as well as I do the weather in the fall is all over the place.
  5. I just looked at the THSPA website for the last 2 seasons and couldn't a find a boy's name associated with Warren. Places like Warren need powerlifting to be able to try and get their kids competitive and to try and build something on the boy's side that has some success. They could also use that on the girl's side as well. I hope they're able to find a person that will buy in and help to overcome the inadequacies of genetics and apathy. When you've got a gene pool that can't compete as they get off the bus you've got to have heart and work ethic and when you have a track record of w
  6. That Barbay is the receivers coach at Central Michigan.
  7. The main problem with all of this is Warren opening this late. Even if there was a change in a "reasonable" time table it was going to be hard to find someone with a proven track record that would want to come in and try to get something going but with it now being June 1st good luck. Whoever ends up getting there, the community AND admin needs to understand realistic expectations and what Warren in is.
  8. There's another Lance Dale that I know of that coaches in Cy Ranch. He's really the one I was in reference to.
  9. And I'll point to the fact that those schools have guys up front that can play as well. I'm just pointing out that just because a team has success in 7 on 7 it doesn't always translate into success on the field. You are also bringing up big schools that probably run their base offensive passing concepts in 7 on 7 which can be an extension for them. When was the last time Jasper or Newton lined up in the fall and threw the ball 25 plus times and had success? That means they're most likely running something they won't even put in for the season. Again, it's a great way to get
  10. I thought it's always on or around October 15th every year.
  11. He's too big time for this. He's a Splendora kinda guy.
  12. Last I heard he was at one of the Cypress schools as o-line coach. I know he was at Bellville before Tarkington and Bellville's been winning way before he got there and has still been winning since he left. I'm not knocking Stan but let's look at what's really going on at the places he's been. Tarkington did to him what they do to just about every AD. One or 2 people with "authority" want something else because they think they can do and get better.
  13. I've never seen anyone that was let go from a place continually show up the way Stan has to Tarkington events so I would say, yes, I agree with that. As far as record it wasn't that long ago they beat Mexia in the playoffs but they had a few cats that could roll. They typically don't have those kinds of kids.
  14. I just did a district wide staff search on their district page and there is no Keel showing up.
  15. My question is how long high-stepping and twirling the purple towel is going to last in Humble.
  16. I'm going to say the number one issue in Tarkington is the people of the Prairie then the things you speak of. The only people that are more entitled than the community there is the community in Splendora.
  17. I get that, but if you don't have the guys up front then 7 on 7 being a gauge for success is a moot point.
  18. 7 on 7 has to be the most overrated gauge to what teams are able to accomplish going into a season or to show what they've done in the off season. It's good for competition, don't get me wrong, but isn't there a group of Hornets that won the 7 on 7 state championship but was lucky to win 4 games the next year?
  19. That's one of the darkest football stadiums I've ever seen. I remember playing on the Prairie in the late 90s and early 2000s and thinking the field was a POS. I think the only thing they've fixed was more clover on the field to try and fix the pot holes.
  20. My sources say that if 7 on 7 is any indication of what's to come it might be an uphill battle.
  21. Interesting. I know the supt reached out to get him from PAM. I wonder what direction they're going to go?
  22. It's a shame there's not a certain BC alum that's not still in the area. He'd make a great addition to WH.
  23. I've been to a handful of DFW track meets this year and I can tell you the only male coaches I ran into that weren't tied to football were the distance guys and the retired coaches that did pole vault. I may have been on the wrong side of the DFW to witness that which you speak of.
