  1. The Tigers must improve in the lines of scrimmage if they hope to contend in 6A. That part of their game has gone downhill significantly since the Glaser regime.
  2. I put the following in another thread, but it makes more sense here: The thing that Beatty has done that is most impressive to me is to adapt to the team that he has that particular year when refining his offense. Two years ago, when they had Rondale Moore, a very accurate but weak-armed QB, and a below average offensive line, Trinity was mostly in spread, no-huddle on offense that featured a quick passing game and jet sweeps. This year, they were under center A LOT with multiple TE’s and sometimes a fullback. In the championship game, they ran the ball 50 times and threw it 15. That is not the Bob Beatty offense of just 2 years ago or especially when he first came to Trinity. In high school football, the best programs tweak their schemes to fit the strengths of that team while maintaining the core of their system. They also have answers to situational football. Trinity does this well. Even in years where they primarily feature the spread, they have a short yardage and goalline offense. In years when they feature the power running game, they have the capacity to spread it out. That is good coaching.

  4. Bottom line is that there will be complaining no matter the format. The thing I like most about the imperfect ranking system we have now is that it gives the best teams, no matter their geography, the best chance at making the finals. And that ranking is earned in the regular season.
  5. That was the case for several years in the beginning of 4A football in the state. The state at-large champ played the Jefferson Co. champ.
  6. Agree completely! The Wolford Experiment set the program back years.
  7. Both of the Male games, the Trinity game, and the first Manual game were lost in the lines of scrimmage. That should be embarrassing for the St. X program with a tradition of developing linemen. Surprisingly, the Tigers were not significantly beaten on the perimeter; they were soundly beaten physically. Coach Wallace is a successful coach, but he is a “get the ball out in space” coach. 6A football is won in the lines of scrimmage. Is it necessary to have good skill players? Yes. But it is imperative to win the physical battle. St. X must improve the physicality in the program to get back on top.
  8. Congrats to Coach Bronger. Getting to practice on Thanksgiving his last year is a special treat.
  9. Male controlled the game from start to finish and won the physical battle.
  10. I have no problem with a playoff game played at a home field whatever the conditions as long as the team that has earned the right to host the game wants it there. If the home team wants to move it to a neutral site with better field conditions, then so be it. If a particular team wants to play a playoff game at the site of their choice, then win in the regular season to secure that right.
  11. I have zero problems with how any team handles JV. There are many variables to consider as to what is the “right” way to handle it. To me, it is up to the head coach to handle the JV situation to do what is best for his team. JV is purely developmental. While the JV records are meaningless, the reps are valuable.
  12. I believe North has the better defense of the two. Central has the better offense thus far. I say Central in a close one.
  13. I think this evenly-matched game will come down to whomever plays better on Friday night in terms of making explosive plays and eliminating costly errors. It would not be a surprise either way.
