Long time viewer, but as you can see first time to post.

Noticed that there are no posts about this years Plano Senior High team. I know they lost Meager, Burkhead, and Lott, but nothing about this years team? Just wondering. Did see they did well in a scrimmage last week.

Tough district with Allen. Those guys are good!

If there is one thing I know about Plano, it's that no matter what they lose, they are still Plano and there's plenty of kids that can play ball over at 2200 Independence Pkwy.


Welcome to the board 5A Fan.:)

The two running backs stole the show. Not as impressed with the QB. Where was the other QB from the scrimmage? I don't think there was a passing touchdown the whole game.

You would've seen a LOT more Plano posts this time last year. ;) Hey, there are a lot of bandwagon Wildcats out there I will admit.

As NHB alluded to there is finally a great website to follow Plano football. This year's team returns 4/4 starters but the losses were obviously big ones. QB seems like a bright spot with two promising arms. Michelson gets the start tonight. WR looks like another strong area, along with the defense. Of course many of us Plano fans are taking a wait and see approach on the latter after last year.

I expect this team to surprise based on practice reports and reviews... along with a lot more discussion over here as the season progresses!

Bravo! Most people's 1st post is a real gem where they lay the biggest load of opinionated steaming stuff before they realize that others have opinions too.

Welcome to the board! Just pretend that everyone knows you and that even the ones that you disagree with the most are members of the Church you attend. Plano will reload this year and be right there challenging for a playoff spot. I have a lot of respect for the Plano team!

guess I will use this thread to make my first post as well (long long time viewer, avid poster on a since deceased HS football forum).

Besides the 0-10 year plano is always a tough opponent for most opponents, even Allen. I remember a year where Plano was written off and they took us(Allen) to overtime. I believe it was 2004? Maybe I am mistaken. Great game, good times. Best of luck against imac. I myself am about to leave for longview, really cannot wait for that first snap.

Thank God for AlGore's internet invention and KVCE. I've been able to follow the 'Cats from Sanaa, Yemen and Muscat Oman and Cuzco Peru, and that really uncivilized outpost, Houston.

The 'Cats got ref'ed in 7 on 7, but what I saw was impressive. And it seems like during the scrimmage w/ Mesquite (wife's team) the 'Cats showed that 1990/s style defense. If the OL has some game, we are going deep after week 10.

PWF will be on for more soon, I know.

IMac 14
Plano 13

Very tough loss (aren't they all) for Plano tonight. Lots of drops, including a couple in the endzone. 2 short misses on FG's and a blocked XP. Defense played great, but so did IMac's in the red zone. Aside from the first play from scrimmage - an 80 yard TD scamper by the QB - defense looks light years better than last year. Not any room at all for IMac's RB's who I understand are very talented.

Plano had at least 3 chances to win the game in the 4th quarter, deep in IMac territory and were taught a tough lesson in "how to lose a game."

I agree. IMAC defense stepped up in the 4th. We had more than ample opportunities to win this game and didn't get it done.

Congrats to the Cards on this one. We need to get better and I think it will happen. Also happy to see a much improved looking defense.

Agree with that. Defense is much improved. They woke up after that first play off scrimmage and started coming together. A big bright spot. On offense, disappointed in the dropped balls and just not being able to hold onto the ball. Man, the QB was getting H-I-T. I don't know how he was getting those passes out. He could throw a nice ball & moved in the pocket well. The kicking game needs some work; hopefully it was first game jitters. It will be a tough game next week; the Cats better be ready.

Congrats Irving Mac. Good luck with the rest of the season.

IMac has a couple of very good running backs... but we knew that. :):notworthy

The Plano D looked very good after the 1st qtr, it's amazing that they played as well as they did in the 2nd half after being on the field most of the game.

Two VERY costly fumbles from guys trying to fight for one more foot when they should just go down... they had the 1st down anyway.

One TD drop was bad, the other the receiver tripped just as the ball was arriving and he still nearly made the grab. Still, you have to make those plays to win. Kicking game.... strong leg, not very accurate. Why do they have the practice net on the sideline... just sayin.

Both QBs looked good. Michelson throws a nice ball (barely missed Holt in the 1st qtr too) and hangs in the pocket. The line was doing a good job.

They will be getting Merril and Burns back which will help.

There were a LOT of juniors and sophomores on the field last night

iMac got the win, but there is a lot of good to be taken from that game. DeSoto.... yikes.

Do kids from the feeder high schools ever get moved up to play varsity for the Sr Highs, or do they stay strictly JV until 11th grade?

Students in the feeder schools are allowed to play varsity for the senior highs. Rex Burkhead is a good example. He went to Jasper and played varsity at Plano for 4 years.

Also, in a few years, the feeder patterns of the high schools will be changed. The word on the street it that McMillen High School (new high school in Murphy) and Williams will be zoned to Plano East. Then formally East-zoned Clark will go to Plano Senior, as well with Vines. Then Jasper (my alma mater, which is split with Schimelpfenig Middle School and Rice Middle School going to Plano and Robinson Middle School going to Plano West. However, I predict that Schimelpfenig will shift to Clark, as it's much closer to Plano than West itself. Rice is actually equidistant from both schools.) and Shepton going to Plano West.

This should even out all the Senior High Enrollments... as West is currently the smallest and will see the largest increase of students with the re-zoning.

There are actually fewer Sophomores this year than last year! I think 4-5 fewer (but that could always change). Last year, a few Sophs started the entire season and the rest had significant playing time. The junior class is pretty good; there just isn't anybody on here tooting their horns. There are a good group of seniors as well. Let's not overlook them. Since the Senior class was so large (the biggest in a long time) and experienced last year, there weren't a lot of underclassmen that got experience.

Your comment made it sound like half the Varsity team is Sophomores. I only saw a couple play Friday.

Any ideal how much increase? Reason I ask is will it move West ahead of Allen in enrollment? If so we'll be Div II almost guaranteed every year. I like the possibility of going Div I or Div II like it currently is.

No idea. Jasper has roughly 2000 students. Currently, an estimated 667 of these students will attend West following their tenure Jasper. Taking SMS out of the equation and rezoning it to Clark (assuming all Middle Schools have the same student population, which they don't, SMS is the smallest, so the actual number will be a bit higher than what I come up with) and Jasper will have about 1,334 students. Factor that in with Shepton's current enrollment (1,525) and West's campus enrollment 1,904 and that will bring our total enrollment to 4,763. Allen is 4,857... so us eclipsing you in enrollment is a possibility, given any other zoning changes they might make and the fact that my calculations were based on the theory of all the middle schools zoned to Jasper having the same enrollment. Not to mention this will also drastically increase our on campus enrollment as well.

Yes. Plano's enrollment will increase, but not as much as West's will since we're getting a full high school zoned to us, not split like it was before. Same with Plano, but they had the majority of Jasper as well, so they'll increase a little. Too lazy to figure out how much, though.

Interesting...so should stay the same for enrollment sequence, i.e. PESH, PSHS, Allen, West? Since Allen now has 16 elmentary and 3 middle schools feeding the high school. So should be the same order for awhile is my guess.

No one said anyone was a lock...just with 3 larger schools it is harder to make Div I. Espcecially all other things involved, 7 school district (4 make playoffs and 3 don't), Jesuit beng forced to play 5A when barely a 4A school, Boyd just went above 5A cut off, etc.

If I remember correctly, there were 2 sophomores last year - the Skinner brothers.

I didn't mean it as a slam to the juniors, there are quite a few of them as well. In fact, I think it looks good for Plano the next couple of years. The Srs on the team this year are very skiiled too.

There are sophomores splitting time 50/50 - offense and defense - and Merril will get a lot of time when he's back. Agreed, the majority are Juniors.

Mostly East cluster. There only three (at most) residential zoned plots of land zoned to West. (The area in between Spring Creek Parkway and Windhaven, along Parker and Preston and a smaller area at Hedgecoxe Road and Robinson Road, though that may be Frisco ISD, I am not sure.)

From Planofootball.com:

The Plano Wildcat fans may be among the best traveling groups in the state. They need to be this week when Plano travels to DeSoto, McCullough says.

“That stadium, it’s like a pep rally atmosphere for them down there,” he said. “We’re going to need Plano support, but we know we’ll get it.”

Too bad both ya'll games have to drive the metromess to get to as both should be fun tonight. Still looking for a closer game...Good Luck to everyone tonight in 8-5A, and I guess hawks too.

Thanks for the best wishes. Good luck to the Eagles as well. We are playing Male skeeters tonight. They don't sting. :D

Looked like those skeeters were biting until some one got them in the 4th quarter.:D

I thought I was joking with the which Plano team would win first but now my bet is West and Senior high and East won't be until they face each other and one has to win.:eek:

Plano West will get a win next week- I agree. But don't count Plano out yet. Plano is pissed off and hungry for a win. And this is the Wildcats home opener. Granted, Hebron is scrappy as hell. And Hebron is obviously playing better than Plano at this point. But my gut instinct tells me that Plano finds a way to win this one- a very, very close win. Go Cats!!

West won 55 - 35, though the game was not nearly as close. West was up 55 - 14 midway through the third quarter and took the starters out, and judging by the stats, North Crowley left their starters in, so the 21 they scored after that was vs the West backups.

Good to see the first team defense hold them to only 14 points, hopefully it's a confidence booster and we can carry it over into the game against Naaman Forest. Sean Ballard, who moved to running back ran for 225 yards and Michael Pruneau (the best QB we've had for as long as I can remember) has been making every secondary we play look pretty bad. 237 yards on 12 completions, and best of all, he only had 4 incompletions. Good to see that the Wolves are going deep. Our best wide receiver is a sophomore who is average over 20 yards per catch.

Good to hear that they won... and dominated as well. If the offense keeps playing like they are, and the defense plays like they did against NC, look out.

PESH is so difficult to predict. The Panthers have a tendency to self destruct, lose games that they shouldn't, and never recover (ie. PESH vs Wylie 2007, PESH vs. Jesuit 2008). One thing is certain- the Panthers will bring their A-game to the Plano/Plano East matchup this year. And it will be a hell of a game. Regardless, I'm definately hoping PESH makes the playoffs this year.

Plano will have to do 180 degree turnaround in this game to have a chance.

Wylie is always really scrappy. The Pirates would literally have to self destruct for the Cats to win. Plano has just looked horribly flat, undisciplined, no leadership, etc, etc. Still a chance for a turnaround though. You never know.

Ok, I haven't posted in a while, but this West game made me sick. Real disappointed in Plano tonight. The "new" offense is horrid. So predictable. Absolutely no running game & just throwing the ball up in the air & hope for some luck. Who said the new "it" kid was a runner? West's defense gives up 500 yards against Boyd and yet they hold Plano to 20 points. This isn't going to last. Plano's defense left the middle of the field wide open, arm tackling. The score doesn't reflect what a beating Plano took by Plano West. With more than 8 minutes left in the 4th quarter & West just trying to take knee, they offered Plano the game & Plano refused the offer. I don't know what the stats were for Plano West but it looks like the ran the ball more than normall when it looked like they could throw at will against our defense. But the biggest disappoints, was Plano's offense. If Plano wanted to throw the ball, why didn't they put their passing QB in? Is the kid hurt? What I saw in the Hebron and Temple game, the kid can throw the ball. It's obvious they didn't have a running back on the field. What's the "new" QB doing back there? He doesn't even know how to spike the ball. A linebacker in at running back has to run up under center and spike the ball. Give the team a chance! You got to have a running and a throwing game. I say put the real QB in the game who can throw the ball and let the running backs run the ball. Somebody needs to correct the real problem which is the line and poor defensive tackling. P.S. Time is running out.

WildcatFan2
10-10-2009, 12:23 AM
You must have left the game early?

The QB didn't see the call for a spike and the other kid did it.

The "bad passing" I saw was very early in the game when the kid hadn't settled in yet. He threw some great balls hitting receivers in stride. He also had a lot of pressure. When they tried to block Jeffcoat on on one... fail.

No there wasn't a running back in the game, they went with 4 wide outs the majority of the game, that's why there was "no running game"

The defense played very well. There was one deep ball that was misplayed, there were also a LOT of good plays to break up passes. Late in the game, they were dragging a receiver across the middle and he was usually open. The defense was on the field a lot, they were worn down. BTW... they stopped West when they had a first down on the 15 - after the QB hit the receiver for a 40 yard gain on 4th down, but he couldn't hang on.

Pruneau is good, when he had time he made the play. West just has a better team this year, Plano will finish the season strong with a chance at the playoffs.

I didn’t leave early, should have... allot of old fans did the ones that have been coming for years and years!! That was as bad as I’ve ever seen a offense that Plano has put on the field in 34 years that I personally witnessed ... totally predictable horrible running game... throwing the ball with our "we tricked them" running QB. Long passes instead of moving the chain type throws, short throws he might complete easier… finally did throw some when it was too late. We did score on two "Hail Mary’s" … West caught 3 of them too, so that completion % of those wasn’t that bad I guess.
The defense missed arm tackle after arm tackle, did break up a few passes in the secondary but gave up 4 tds thought the air. Plano does not run nickel or dime pkgs (extra DBs) EVER??? West could have thrown the ball all night if they wanted too, the middle of the field was wide open all night. West beat Plano by a greater degree than the score showed, in almost every area of the game.

This is what I saw as well.

Poor fundamentals all year as well. This team is too young and not well enough coached to make mistakes and be able to come back from them.

Also, Plano had TWO opportunities to kick off from the West 45 yard line. Did any of the coaching staff ever consider a high kick about 30 yards and making a jump ball out of it? NO, just blow it into the endzone.

Poor decisions, play, and coaching all around.

There was "no running game" because Plano went with an EMPTY BACKFIELD most of the night. I don't think Merrill even played except for special teams.

Those "hail Mary's" are called a fade. One interception was on a double reverse, halfback pass, another was when the backup had to come in for the last play because Kuzu's shoe came off... the int was a non factor in the game.

Before we start bashing the current coaches you have to realize that Jaydon is rebuilding the Plano Football program from the ground up. He is the guy that has incorporated fundamentals and contact back into practice. He doesn't just talk about them when the newspaper reporter is around like the last coach, Jaydon actually is working on that stuff in practice.

Yes, he had some talented players last year, and yes some traditions are still in place, but JM has had to revamp the whole program including rebuilding; the QB Club funds, pre-season workout design, practice design, parent trust, teachers trust, players attitudes ect...because, putting it nicely, behind the scenes, Brence left an unorganized, mismanaged, pile of crap for Jaydon to clean up. Give him a break, the clean-up will take more than one or two years.

Yes, he had some talented players last year, and yes some traditions are still in place, but JM has had to revamp the whole program including rebuilding; the QB Club funds, pre-season workout design, practice design, parent trust, teachers trust, players attitudes ect...because, putting it nicely, behind the scenes, Brence left an unorganized, mismanaged, pile of crap for Jaydon to clean up. Give him a break, the clean-up will take more than one or two years.

I am aware of the situation and get what you are saying about rebuilding the program and the time it takes to get it done.

My disapointments are that while I finally do see a bit of actual hitting again, many fundamentals are still missing. I realize JM cannot coach every position either so his staff needs to do some polishing up as well as teaching heads up basic play.
I guess I am just impatient and want to see the days again when at least the consistency is there year in and year out. At a minimum, playing solid football, I don't care if we are outmanned in size, speed or whatever as long as the competitiveness is there.

Back in the Kimbrough era, not much contact (to the ground tackles) happened in practice. The mental aspect was very strict, execution, technique and discipline were the focus. Drills, drills and more of the same drills daily, it was blocking and tackling 101 daily with zero tolerance for not executing.
That’s what JM went though in his playing days in Plano and that is also his demeanor today. I feel sure thats what is beginning to be enforced once again. That is also what built the Tradition and good teams year after year, even if they were undersized or young or whatever. He will get it done, that’s who he is from head to toe, a PLANO WILDCAT for life. He knows what it takes he’s lived it.

There was "no running game" because Plano went with an EMPTY BACKFIELD most of the night. I don't think Merrill even played except for special teams.

Those "hail Mary's" are called a fade. One interception was on a double reverse, halfback pass, another was when the backup had to come in for the last play because Kuzu's shoe came off... the int was a non factor in the game.

These are high school kids, not the Cowboys. :rolleyes:

1. There were no running backs in the backfield because the only reason the new QB was in was because he was a "runner" so he was the single back. There wasn't even that much empty sets.
2. Those were not fades! Fades are in the back of the endzone. Pretty much jump balls. There was a seam, a post, wheel and screen. Most of those balls were also what is called a "duck". That may be too much info for you. But, hey, that's football terminology. Comes from years of experience. I called those balls as they were. Thrown up into the air & praying for the best. To the kids credit, the seam was a nice ball to #24. Other than that, not impressed. You can't rely on throwing up hail marys every play.

I agree they aren't the Cowboys, although they are playing like it at the moment.

I have not watched any practices since Jaydon took over. However your right on about Kimbrough's practices. He was a stickler to detail on the offense and Coach Woods was a stickler for the defense. People forget that Coach Woods was Kimbroughs DC for most of the 80's and was very instrumental in making plano the team of the decade in 5A. However I don't see the "Kimbrough" effect when it comes to x/o's strategy. Jaydon has some great qualities however his coaching style is no where near what Kimbrough brought to the table. When I played for the Cats back in the 80's he was landryesque in his demeanor.

The fades were fairly well thrown, the one to Holt was a little short and he nearly made a great grab. There were several deep sideline throws that were dropped over the receiver's shoulder.

It's rather hard to "have a running game" with an empty backfield. They had a few plays with #10 in the backfield, then shifting out.

One deep middle "jump ball" was a reverse. The ball to Robinson on 4th down was a very nice throw with a defender in his face. The QB didn't do a bad job. IMHO But hey, I'm not Football Jesus. :notworthy

They tried something new. West's pass defense is not that great if you can neutralize Jeffcoat.

I would love to watch the game again, we obviously saw two different games.

10-13-2009, 04:03 PM
You must have left the game early?

The QB didn't see the call for a spike and the other kid did it.

The "bad passing" I saw was very early in the game when the kid hadn't settled in yet. He threw some great balls hitting receivers in stride. He also had a lot of pressure. When they tried to block Jeffcoat on on one... fail.

No there wasn't a running back in the game, they went with 4 wide outs the majority of the game, that's why there was "no running game"

The defense played very well. There was one deep ball that was misplayed, there were also a LOT of good plays to break up passes. Late in the game, they were dragging a receiver across the middle and he was usually open. The defense was on the field a lot, they were worn down. BTW... they stopped West when they had a first down on the 15 - after the QB hit the receiver for a 40 yard gain on 4th down, but he couldn't hang on.

Pruneau is good, when he had time he made the play. West just has a better team this year, Plano will finish the season strong with a chance at the playoffs.

I have NO idea which game you watched. :rolleyes:

What surprised me a little was the play calling from Plano. The wind was blowing pretty good making throwing against it somewhat problematic. Plano tried several trick plays throwing into wind which did not turn out well for the Wildcats. West just better this year on both sides of the ball. Young Wildcats will benefit from this year's struggles. No shame in playing hard and losing to a better team.

No doubt Allen is a great team however, Plano teams under Kimbrough were so much better prepared in the fundamentals and game plan that what we are seeing. Unless we have superior talent aka 07 & 08 teams we don't excel unfortunately this current coaching staff is average at best. Even with Kimbrough in his prime we probably still lose that game however the effort and execution would of been so much better.

How do you lose to MacArthur & Temple?

I have to admit I was a little disappointed with the Plano team last night but have to admit you guys told us this here.

Now as for next weeks game Plano can win if they stop Boyds 6 plays and come up with more then the 4 or 5 I saw last night that ya'll kept running. Boyd only does 6 plays really:
1&2. Griffin run to the left with possible pass if there if not runs.
3&4. Griffin run to the right with possible pass if there if not runs.
5. RB up the middle.
6. Pass across the middle.
Griffin is very elusive so defense has to maintain him.

Good luck to you guys but will have to play better to beat them than last night. Think this does decide the playoff spots for 8-5A.

If I could I would turn down the 4th playoff spot. 4-6 should not be allowed. It's like Notre Dame turning down an invitation to the Poulan Weedeater Bowl because of their 6-5 record a few years back. Why bother.

However, they have a good chance beating Boyd & Jesuit unfortunatley. I think the Plano at Jesuit is for the 4th spot and the last game of the season. Sad, so Sad.

They are not a playoff team !! They have talent, but they are running plays that does not showcase those talents. New concept find 10 plays that they can execute everytime with their "Young Undersized" team and run those plays. On defense you cant cover recievers and backs with LB's, yet thats what we do every week...hasnt work too well yet. They have talent they can win with but they must prepare a game plan with plays they can execute everytime to their talents, and not wholesale change week to week on who they think they are that week, its a joke !!

Griffin rarely runs to the left. Even when under heavy pressure from the right, he will break to the left get to the line of scrimmage and then cut it back to the right. I watched him run or get flushed out of the pocket 27 times against West. Three plays were "student-body left." Two other plays were where he received heavy pressure from the right and he took off to his left. Both plays he still ended up on the right side of the field. The remaining 22 plays went to the right. Watch him, if he has the option and he makes a cut on a run, it will be to his right.

You can almost forget about the other rushers. They MIGHT touch the ball 3 times each per game. No, either Griffin runs it or he throws it. REAL PREDICTABLE.

Couldn't agree more. They had the right formula at the beginning of the season on offense: a respected passing and running game. They should have been focusing on fixing the real problem: the fundamentals on the offensive line and defensive tackling. There were just a few players on defense that I could see really tackle (and I'm not talking arm tackle) on Friday night. One was #7 and the other was #17. I saw #17 at the beginning of the season but haven't seen him much since. The defense also didn't put much pressure on the Allen QB. (But, ya gotta give credit to that mammoth offensive line they had. Where can we get some of those guys?) It was nice to see the passing QB come in the game during the 3rd Quarter. It actually looked like Allen began to respect the pass and #19 was able to make some good runs. #9 also caught a pretty pass in the endzone to prevent the skunkaroo. So, some things did go well. We didn't get skunked. Somebody tell me why a linebacker was playing running back when they have #19. I also saw a fullback playing linebacker who I haven't seen play that position all year. I just can't figure these coaches out. It's like a chicken running around with it's head cut off. I have to agree with the Allen poster who said it only looked like #19 and the backup QB were playing with any heart. But, I would have to add #35, #7 and #17. And armchair, I agree, there are some coaches who can win with this group. A good program doesn't have this type of fluctuation. This season is very telling of the coaching staff. This group of boys (from Soph to Senior) have been very successful at every level of football until this year. I'm not saying it isn't some of the boys part; but a coach has to coach and teach the fundamentals and be consistent on the discipline. They just seem to try a quick fix or a tricky dicky like they did with Wylie. I don't see the fundamental discipline of coaching happening. I think some of the trust & confidence in the coaching staff has declined this season. It's unfortunate; because I thought the new HC would turn the program in a positive direction with honesty, integrity, enthusiasm and discipline. However, I've been seeing some of the same traits that were despised in the old coach coming out. That's really unfortunate for the boys and team when they lose confidence in their coach. I hope it can work itself out. Can we beat Boyd? I think we can, but not with the "wildcat" offense (predictable & ineffective) we are using now and not with the poor tackling and broken coverages I'm seeing on defense.

Wildcat fans,

Sorry to butt in on your thread. Just wanted to comment on how good you JV team looked last night. Plano JV looked like they were on their game... and I've never seen the Boyd JV look so bad. As bad as they were, they didn't deserve to win.

The two games I saw were:
Boyd JV Blue took on Plano JV and lost 33 - 7
Boyd JV Red took on Plano Vines and lost 27 - 14 (as I recall)

If the Boyd varsity comes out tonight flat like the JV did last night, Plano takes this game easily, and you guys are one step closer to the playoffs. If not, well... your current JV shows a lot of promise for the upcoming years.

Yes it is true, and yes I think you are correct.

They've even been blasting the the Plano fight song over the auxillary field loud speakers during football practice. My son says it's like football practice in the Twilight Zone. They just keep playing it over and over and over in a continuous loop. I guess the logic is... get em to where they never want to hear it again. To me it seems counter productive but hey...

It was a good win last night. The kicker has a great leg and showed it last night. The defense played good. There were too many penalties at the end that we need to eliminate. I liked the man coverage. The boys handled it well & put a lot of pressure on the QB. The offensive line came together last night as well. It was probably one of their best games of the year. When the real QB came in, you could sense a difference in the team. For sitting on the sideline for 3 games and then being able to come in and immediately move the chains and lead the team to score 2 touchdowns says something about the kid and what his teammates think of him. It raises the question, why did they even change the offense. Some of his throws were unbelievable. It was good to see #33 back running. He is a playmaker. The running game opened up for the first time since Wylie. That had a lot to do with the passing game being effective. The offense was much more diverse and not as one-dimensional as the last few games. Still a few questionable play calls. I thought the officiating was questionable at times. If the CATS can keep up this momentum, they can beat Jesuit.

I agree with PWildCat, the change at QB was the difference along with #33. Play calling still ???? Still predictable and not constant to what they are being giving on the field by the other team… Defense still needs the Nickel/Dime Package in obvious passing situations.
Boyd is way way over-rated, no offense really just a very athletic kid running around all over the place trying to make plays…similar to back yard football.

Agreed. How much do they work on in non district? There are a lot of guys who started or played a lot against IMac that aren't now. IMac was a win that was basically given away... dropped passes in the EZ, missed field goals, 2 big plays in the 1st Qtr and nothing else from IMac... Same with Temple... had the game and there were some costly mistakes. Again... non district.

Playoffs are based on district play. If they beat Jesuit, they DESERVE to be there and I'll be there cheering them on the same as if they had gone undefeated.

No doubt they should have won at least a couple more games. Problem is coulda, woulda, shoulda won't get you very far.
I have been critical all year basically because of being non-competitive in too many situations. Now, I'd like to see this team step up with a playoff spot in their own hands and get it done against an opponent that they can compete against.

Then, no matter what happens, start seeing some yearly consistent good play and coaching and at least get the program back on an even keel. I just cannot see any excuse for not being a solid team each and every year. Its been a long enough wait.

If you are planning on going to the Jesuit game next week at Haggar Stadium, you'll want to get there VERY EARLY. The stadium is similar to Allen's (porta-potties and all), except it does not have the added seating in the endzones and along side the permanent bleachers that Allen has.

Parking is extremely limited. You have to have a parking pass to park at the stadium/school. In addition, I've heard that some of the local business around the school will tow if you park in their lots. Best bet is to park at the church (St. Rita's) slightly north of Jesuit on Inwood. The church has ample parking and is rather empty on Friday night.

I have a feeling we will run into a situation similar to the Hebron game in 2008 where Plano fans who show up at game time get locked out of the stadium because there is not enough seating. PM me if you need more info.

I talked to a lot of folks at the Boyd game who said they wouldn't go to Jesuit because of no seating, parking, etc. Given that, who know how many will or won't show up.

Even though I have been harsh on this team all year, I have to hope they make the playoffs. I know this team has no business being there, but for selfish reasons, I want to see them get whatever experience they can out of it, only for the long term expectation that the program will turn around.

That's a load of crap. Jesuit's seating is not all that bad. Neither is their parking. You just can't expect to get there 15 minutes before kickoff and expect to not have to walk. I got to the Wylie/Jesuit game an hour early and had no issues with parking, and by time the game started - Wylie's side was about 3/4ths full.

I was there last year for the Boyd game and will be there tonight for the JV game. My recomendation is to get there early, park at St Ritas and don't forget your portable stadium seat if you own one. Those old wooden bleachers are full of splinters and if it rains, they'll be soaked like an old sponge.

Seriously, no one here is kidding when they call it a 2A stadium. In fact, I think I've seen better 2A stadiums. For those of you who visited Boyd for the JV game last week... well Jesuit's visitor side is not much bigger than the Boyd auxilary field seating, but Boyds facility is much newer and in much nicer condition.

Jesuit is nice enough to bring in those toliet trailers (like you see at golf tournaments). So at least that is one step above a porta-potty.

On the positive side, the Jesuit folks do their best to be a good host. Everyone I encountered was extremely friendly and helpful the last time I was there.

Was at Haggar Stadium tonight and... Good news... the benches are aluminum. No wood splinters unless you go bare footed. The floor is still old wood and you can feel it flex under you feet.

Bad news is, the lighting is pretty poor. I don't remember the lighting being so bad last year, but it appeared they had some bulbs burned out. Maybe they'll get that fixed before next Friday.

In general I usually enjoy watching games at Jesuits stadium. The parking is not ideal, but good enough. Getting there a bit early is not a bad idea. It does have an older feel to it which is not a bad contrast from the uber stadiums once in a while. The winds can be a factor. I 2006 when SGP played them late in the season, I remember Jesuit kicking off and the ball literally halting in mid air and perhaps even reversing direction back towards the kicking team. It did go ten yards but not by much!!

FYI The entire stadium holds 4,000 fans. In the visitor's section, there are 1,000 seats (for fans, band, and drill team). There are approximately 50 parking spaces for the entire stadium.

The game was scheduled for a 5A stadium. Regardless of what your standards of a 5A stadium are, the fact is that Jesuit is a 5A school. If we had your tax base and ability to sell bonds, you can bet we'd have a shiny new stadium. However, as a private school whose first commitment is to academics, building a stadium to your "5A" specifications takes a back burner to things like building enough classroom space for the school and installing new technology in every classroom.

All this is accurate except for the ending. I've never seen people turned away from a Jesuit home game, even when the crowds approach double the capacity as the did when Jesuit and Lynch played at home sites. Plano was fine back in the 1980s and they should be fine on Friday.

You can rationalize it all you want, but a 5-A venue has at least a seating capacity of 9000 and adequate parking.
If it is all as great as you say, then why did you feel the need to "host" Allen at SMU? It all would have been a lot cozier at your place.

Of course they were when Jesuit releases only 1500 seats and Plano buys them all then of course Plano was fine in the stadium.

1. There were no running backs in the backfield because the only reason the new QB was in was because he was a "runner" so he was the single back. There wasn't even that much empty sets.
2. Those were not fades! Fades are in the back of the endzone. Pretty much jump balls. There was a seam, a post, wheel and screen. Most of those balls were also what is called a "duck". That may be too much info for you. But, hey, that's football terminology. Comes from years of experience. I called those balls as they were. Thrown up into the air & praying for the best. To the kids credit, the seam was a nice ball to #24. Other than that, not impressed. You can't rely on throwing up hail marys every play.

I agree they aren't the Cowboys, although they are playing like it at the moment.

I feel bad for the 89 team that went 8-1-1 and no playoffs because the lost the tie breaker on pentetrations and the 85 team that went 8-2 and lost a coin flip to miss the playoffs.

I was in high school in 1989 when Plano didn't go to the playoffs with an 8-1-1 record. I can still remember leaving Eagle-Mustang stadium after tying JJ Pearce and finding out later that there would be no playoffs because the Mustangs advanced on penetrations. Very disappointing.

However, I am very excited that the Wildcats made the playoffs this year. I agree that the system is watered down. I also disagree with having a two division playoff system and Allen being in DII. But, it is what it is, and you take what you can get. I'm glad these kids get to experience the excitment of going to the playoffs and not be on the outside looking in. Plano can beat Duncanville. It will be close, but it can be done. GO CATS!!

I think Wylie will be in 8-5A again next year. They'll probably be the 2nd smallest school in 5A competing with the largest schools in 5A, but that brings on the fun. I'd rather be in one of the most competitive districts than get thrown back in with HP and endure another 12 consecutive losses.

Wylie implemented the Wildcat against Plano West, and it seems to be working very well. I hope they perfect it for next season!

Maroondog, during Boyd, we only had the ball one time in the 3rd Quarter and we scored. Boyd controlled the ball the remainder of the 3rd Quarter. During the 4th Quarter, we drove down & scored 3 points (besides killing the clock). Not to say we shouldn't have scored again in the 4th.

As for Jesuit, I didn't get to see it in person, but heard the radio broadcast. It sounded like the 2nd half was riddled with penalty after penalty. Like Personal fouls on long runs after the plays over with. Quite a few holding calls. Since I wasn't there, I don't know how legit the calls were; but it sounded like those penalties stopped steady drives. When I checked the penalty stats, Plano had significantly more penalties than Jesuit. They've got to get that under control if they are going to get past the 1st round. It sounded like the defense had a great night & the offense had its best outing.

I agree, we've got to learn to finish the game. Hopefully, these last two games will give them some momentum to beat Duncanville. It won't be easy; but they are coming together.

Since I wasn't there, I don't know how legit the calls were; but it sounded like those penalties stopped steady drives. When I checked the penalty stats, Plano had significantly more penalties than Jesuit. They've got to get that under control if they are going to get past the 1st round. It sounded like the defense had a great night & the offense had its best outing.

I agree, we've got to learn to finish the game. Hopefully, these last two games will give them some momentum to beat Duncanville. It won't be easy; but they are coming together.

LOL. That's an understatement. Holding, PI, PF- was to the point that it was almost predictable.

They can't do that against good teams. They can probablly get away with it against Duncanville, however Trinity will run them out of Jerry World.

Agreed. Hopefully, the Cats will get things under control against Duncanville. I don't even want to think about playing Trininty yet. :eek:

and from the same ref on Jesuit's sideline. I swear the guy had to ice his arm after the game.

D'ville will have a lot more speed.

Nice 2nd half for Plano against Duncanville 28-17 win. First quarter was a nightmare 4 turnovers and down 17-0 with 5 turnovers in the first half.

Plano's play calling was TERRIBLE. Trying to get two cute with the play calls almost cost Plano tonight. What is JAYDON doing going 5 wide? Jared K is healthy and its amazing what happens when you feed him the ball. Big runs in the second half.

However, Duncanville's offense was horrible, very slow and the QB #17 couldn't throw and the running game was anemic. Give credit for the Plano pass rush and run defense though. Got 4 INT's as well.

If Plano want's any chance to beat trinity they must think run first then pass and not turn the ball over at all.

Nice comeback, congrats Plano with a good win you guys are growing up. :notworthy

Totally agree. Why run a reverse on 3rd and 2 with 4 minutes left? Run Special K up the gut and he gets 5 yards. They also need to figure out how to disguise that WR screen. EVERYONE knows it's coming.

Also liked the double reverse, throw back, pass... er... fumble. What the heck play call was that?!?!?! You've turned the ball over 3 times... go back to basics.

The kids showed a LOT of character to keep fighting and get the win - nice job!

Plano hangs around for one more week. Oh well, the Wildcats season will be over next week. Their 2010 season should be much more promising than 2009.

Its not over till its over. I agree though 2010 looks much more promising than 2009. Heck we might even stay within 20 of Allen.:D

Wildcats showed me some grit last night. Would have been easy to fold the tent but they stayed with it and got it done.

1st half an absolute nightmare, 2nd half turned in the Cats favor. Duncanville not elite either, but it was a playoff game and actually meant something. Plano defense looking good, agree about play calling?

Congratulations all around. It just gets tougher from now on.

I agree about the play calling. Need to keep it simple and stick to the basics. This offense can't handle complicated plays.

Anyone know if Plano is home or visitor against Trinity? And what side of the stadium do you enter?

I heard that Trinity is home. You enter through the giant doors at either end zone. Then you can go either right or left to the appropriate side.

Thanks and good luck to you, as well. Be sure to bring a snow shovel in order to dig your way through the trash left behind by the fans during the previous two games.....

Real and fake reverses all night. Very true! And, don't forget the pass on the reverse, as well. We're 3 - 3 on that one.

Mr. Brown is indeed fast. Toss up who is faster though: Brown, Carter or Hubbard.

I wouldn't worry too much about it. We are small and slow, but otherwise match up very well. :(
