I'm pretty sure this is Vidor's first 5-0 start since the 1964 state semifinalist team.

But it's great to see all these OC teams have big wins tonight.

And if not for that Hurricane, I’m 95% sure we’d be 6-0 now.

Yep, big wins tonight for OC.  Mildly surprised at LCM & BC wins.  Full disclosure, if you told me Vidor was going to have 5 turnovers, I’d picked Splendora, so in that aspect, Vidor’s win was a surprise.  WOS & OF, we’ll heck, they always win.  😄

I think this is the second week this season it's happened that all OC teams won.  Still pretty rare.   And you're probably right that 5-0 goes all the way back to '64, (my soph year btw)

That really is a rare feat for all OC teams to win. But that's awesome you were a sophomore during that amazing season.

1964 was a special, near magical season for VHS and the city itself. Will always remember it.  

Yes and on a side note, Vidor wore the best looking football uniforms I’ve ever seen anywhere.

I'm curious, what did the uni's look like then? 

From my feeble memory.
Old gold, not yellow, with white stripes over the shoulder outlined in black, as were the numbers, and stripe down the side of the legs.  Pants secured with a white belt.  Had old gold helmets with the white stripe also outlined in black.  Seems like a black Pirate on the side.  As I remember they wore them one more year.  Problem was the old gold faded some after a bunch of washings and when replacements were bought the new ones stood out.  The old gold was the unique factor.  Most “gold” today is a yucky yellow.  The Booster Club bought old gold sports coats with a black V on the pocket for away games and all players had a white dress shirt & black tie.  Guys looked sharp.

We need to return to a look like that it would be awesome. Not playing Nederland anymore so no need to worry about looking like them. I wish they had a gold uni that’d be sweet. We always accentuate the black or the white but what about the GOLD?

I can only guess that they still can’t get the old gold to hold its color.  Every team I’ve seen with a uniform part gold, the part gold is usually yellow.  That dark old gold was unique.  Btw, to my knowledge, Ned has never had the old gold so we’d still be unique.

@Tim Rigginsmight update my description.  I was out of school then.

Wow, now that you described the jerseys I remember seeing them in The Vidorian for homecoming one year. Seemed like they were looking dapper for the away games! It would be awesome if Vidor could bring those uni's back like these college teams do. But I agree, these new yellow gold colors now days are fugly.

Old Gold pants and jerseys.  Black numbers. Two narrow black stripes, 2 narrow white stripes around the sleeves, (not over the shoulder pads.)  Same type black and white stripes down the outside of the pants.  Solid old gold helmets.  White belts, white socks, black cleats.  (I'm looking at my junior year picture)  '65 was the last year for the gold uniforms, which did look awesome .  Next year, '66, we went to the all black home uniforms with the gold and black checkerboard strip outlined by white stripes over the shoulder pads.  Same kind of design down the pants legs.  In '66 you could also "earn" a black helmet with your play.  Everyone started the season with a gold helmet, but the coveted black helmet was awarded according to your play.  It was a big deal to wear the black helmet.

Thanks for the update.  I was close.  Best looking uni’s I’ve ever seen.

    • That's one projection. Another has Abilene with Amarillo and Lubbock schools and Aledo region 2. 
    • Region 1 District 3-5AD1: Abilene, Aledo, Azle, Burleson Centennial, Cleburne, Granbury, Saginaw, WS Brewer
    • They were pretty good in '15 when they won state AND The Mighty Jack Dallas rightfully won the Willie Ray Smith Award over that qb from Silsbee that nobody remembers. 
    • Game wardens basically have no more authority than any other police officer. They have maybe what some people would consider a detention without reasonable suspicion in that the law says if they see you fishing, they can check your fishing license and your catch.  If they see you hunting, they can check your hunting license and what you killed. To that extent they can check your stringer, your ice chest, etc. Maybe some people think that is extraordinary powers. Generally speaking the courts allow this as a highly regulated outdoor activity and not merely going about your business. We often hear that the Game wardens can go into your home and search without a warrant and other such nonsense. In fact the Parks and Wildlife Code specifically states that they do not have such an authority. Here are a couple of pretty important definitions in the authority to search. They are residence and temporary residence.  Sec. 12.102. INSPECTION OF WILDLIFE RESOURCES. (a) In this section: (1) "Residence" means a person's principal or ordinary home or dwelling place.(2) "Temporary residence" means a place where a person temporarily dwells or seeks shelter. The term does not include a hunting blind. The term does include a:   (A) hunting club or lodge;   (B) clubhouse;   (C) cabin;   (D) tent.  (E) manufactured home used as a hunting club or lodge; and   (F) hotel room, motel room, or room in a boardinghouse used during a hunting trip. These definitions are important in a following subsection that shows the prohibition in reference to these locations and particularly note temporary residence. (d) Nothing in this section authorizes a game warden or other peace officer commissioned by the department to conduct a search otherwise authorized by this section: (1) in a person's residence or temporary residence; or   (2) on a publicly maintained road or way that is.  (A) improved, designed, or ordinarily used for vehicular traffic;   (B) open to the public; and   (C) distinguishable from a shoulder, berm, or other area not intended for vehicular traffic. Note that they cannot go into a temporary residence to search and that it would includes as specifically listed, a tent. You’ll hear people say that they can go into your Home without a warrant yet here is there a code saying they cannot even go into your tent, hotel room,  cabin or anywhere else you used to stay while you were on a hunting trip. I have seen on hunting forums going back many years people saying, the police should  just bring a game warden with them because they can do anything. The premise is that if we think there are drugs in a house, simply bring a game warden and we could go in without a warrant. That is pretty laughable. As far as the 14 days, he was doing more than just mouthing off. He was getting in my way by reaching across from n front of my chest with his arm and kind of pushing me back out of the way so I could not make an inspection. He always did it under the guise of trying to hand somebody a mixed drink or a beer. I even told him that if you need a hand this person that is 3 feet to my left a beer, go around me and hand it to him. He made a point of being on the wrong side and having to push me out of the way to make a sale. I gave him warnings that he could not do that and he continued. I even brought him over and showed him his alcohol license which he claimed forbid me from searching but I pointed out the text that said any peace officer can make an inspection. Although we all know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse, I used what is called confirmation. Although I could have simply made a criminal charge the first time he interfered with me, I wanted to give him a chance to correct his actions and also to explain the law to him and in the case of the alcohol license, actually showed him the wording. Doing so two or three times was not good enough for him and he kept telling me that I was wrong and I had no authority. THAT it would cost his bar 14 days of profits and him time in the county jail.
