A lot of people may expect Horn to be a tough out, I agree. Maybe that makes it not an upset. But in my opinion, a 4-6 team taking down a good, ranked 9-1 team would be an upset. It's not like Cove is a 9-1 El Paso team that's not even ranked in their region.

I hear ya! Logically it makes no sense for us to pull for Allen, but we have made some good friends over there since the 2008 game at the double wide. Some epic battles, great fan bases, and yes some good pictionary! Best to yall Saturday night, and say hi when you see the sprinkling of Trinity shirts in the crowd!

Man... there's nothing I'd like to see more than Boyd pull an upset over Skyline, but I just don't see a scenario where this can happen. Please someone... lay it out for me if you see something I don't.

Skyline has one of the stingiest defenses in the area. In disctrict they've only had 14 points (2 touchdowns) scored against them this season. In the mean time, their offense has been prolific.

I'm a huge Bronco fan, but being realistic I think Boyd will fair about as well as Jesuit did against Skyline. That score was 54-7 Skyline.

Again... please tell me where I'm wrong.

Dont fall for it, he is trying to say that a 4th place team is as good as one of the nations best or that 12-5a last place team can play with one of 11-5a best. I am not buying it!

Desoto is going to take Temple to the WOOD SHED, they have too much fire power, speed, and they will Rock n Roll! 56-14 final

My thoughts:

Longview over Temple
DeSoto over A&M Cons
Mesquite over Belton
Horn over Cove.

The first two are, and should be no brainers. As they say anything can happen....I think Mesquite has enough athletes to take Belton.

The only one I can see 125A winning is Cove/Horn game... sorry Horn fans. I am picking you guys to win. However, with the history of last year, Cove wanting to prove last year was a fluke, and the inconsistent play each week from a talented Horn team, has me leaning that this could be the one that 125A wins.

Horn has the talent........but do they play a solid 48 minutes?

Talking about no brainers? Anyone with half a brain should see that Belton beats Mesquite.

I see the two divisions splitting games!!

P.S. Cove is loaded with speed and talent and unlike last year is actually playing consistent other than some occaisonal penalties.

I have seen Mesquite play and they have athletes and a good scheme.

I have been accused of having half of brain :D, however, my gut says Mesquite.

I am not totally sold on Horn as others are, but if they come to play.....look out. They have the talent.

It should be a good game... but then again Cove could return the favor....

2 State Champions from Florida and Tennessee plus Arlington Bowie in non-district. Berkner and Jesuit are very solid teams in their district and they made it look easy in wins over them. Wouldnt surprise me if Berkner and Jesuit both win their 1st round games. Boyd's schedule isn't very impresssive. Lost to FM, who Jesuit beat. Let a winless 4A team (McKinney) score 28 on them.

Berkner, Jesuit, and Bowie would all beat Boyd.

Skyline is the real deal. Just wait and see. Skyline will win it all.

Two out of state teams who aren't very good and would have a poor record in many 5A districts in Texas.

Skyline is the real deal. Just wait and see. Skyline will win it all.Let's see what happens when they play a team that matters. If they make it past the 1st round, they might get a chance to play a pretty good Desoto team. A Desoto team that has actually played some competition.

Jesuit squeaks by Flower Mound 42-41

Flower Mound beats Boyd 44-36

Skyline hammers Jesuit 54-7

Admittedly, the Boyd v Flower Mound game was the ugliest game I've ever seen Boyd play. You just can't turn the ball over 7 times and hope to win, but even as improved as they are, I still don't see how the Broncos pull this one off.

Again... I hope I'm wrong and you are right!

It's possible. Unfortunately, we don't really have a way of finding out, unless Boyd and Bowie both got that far. About all I know, is that Boyd lost to Flower Mound, who lost to Jesuit, who got slapped around by Skyline. Now, I am not guaranteeing a Skyline victory this Friday night. The games still have to be played. But, that's all we have to go on. I definitely haven't forgotten about South Garland beating Longview not once, but TWICE so, anything can happen.

At this point, I think everyone has a chance. After seeing what South Garland did to Longview twice, and what Mansfield did to Abilene High about 3 years ago, I'd say that you definitely have a shot. If Skyline is overlooking you, which I doubt that Coach Samples would allow to happen, you'll win.

We'll see on Friday night.

That's not saying alot..... Jesuit beat Berkner, in OT, and that is the only win Jesuit had against a team with a winning record.

11-08-2011, 02:13 PM
I believe Boyd is a good, well balanced team. Garland knocked their QB out in the 2nd series of the game and forced them into a one dimemsional attack, which really slowed them down. If they can generate a passing offense, their RB, Driscoll, could have a big night...

I think this weeks game will be similar to the game Skyline had with Galand last year - close for three quarters, then Skyline puts them away...

DragonFan0316
11-08-2011, 02:34 PM

What games do you see upsets happening?

Here are some possible ones I see...

Keller Central over SLC
Boyd over Skyline
Temple over Longview
Horn over Cove

I am a little perplexed at why a longview upset is being thrown out there for serious consideration. I know anything can happen but what is expected to happen usually happens. Longview has been playing very well just upsetting the # 3 or 4 ranked team in the state. Temple is a average team from what I think is an average district. i guess we will find out soon enough.

bowiedawgs01
11-08-2011, 03:21 PM
I didn't say I actually picked Temple in my bracket. But I did say upset. If this was a March Madness bracket, why go around picking 8 seeds over 9 seeds and calling it an upset? I tried to pick some that would be real shockers.

As a native Tennessean:

1. Tennessee high school football is nowhere close to Texas high school football.
2. Ridgeway is the equivalent of a 4A team.
3. Ridgeway is not a state championship-caliber team this year, even in Tennessee. They got blown out by a couple of other teams in Memphis, one of which finished 6-4.

dmo069
11-08-2011, 09:34 PM
Ridgeway is barely a top 50 team in Tennessee and ranked in the 1400's nationally. Cocoa is ranked in the 30's in Florida and in the 330's nationally. Not exactly the kind of stiff competition that some would have us believe.

Well, the Skyline/Boyd game was never in doubt. I did get the feeling that Coach Samples wasn't showing his full hand last night though. They only ran about 3-4 different plays all night and, well, when you win the battle upfront, you can do that. Boyd seemed like they only ran about 3 different plays all night themselves. Heard some Boyd fans get upset over some questionable calls. At the same time, Boyd got away with a non pass interference call. Other than that, it was a clean game played by both teams. Boyd gave it their best shot and didn't quit. Skyline took that best shot and could've folded when Boyd was "starting" to pickup some momentum. They held it together though.

Props to Boyd for playing hard and not quiting, and props to Skyline on earning that victory.
