    I think this game will be a shootout. If Allen can just stop SLC a little bit, obviously Carroll will light up the scoreboard like always but Allen needs to just try to think about maying containing them a little bit. Allen has a great offense too. This game will probably take 6 hours to play.

    figure out a way to outplay the slc defense, which so far has been an option. the allen defense will have to play lights out too, since scoring 21+ is not terribly likely.

    Does Allen have the type of defense that could bother Riley Dodge? I honestly know very little about Allen. Who did they lose to this year?

    Also, they must keep a balanced D. With a breakout game like Tre had yesterday, you now have to watch for the long ball, and the very strong run.

    Its not like they cant be beaten.

    Like I sd in the WF vs. Allen post game thread, have faith in your team(Eagle fans). The only thing Allen can do at this point is play to their abilities and leave it on the field. Its the semis...you got it or you dont.

    Allen better be able to be multi-dimensional on Offense to keep the Carroll D guessing.. if you just pass, pass pass, then you wont win and vice versa with running (the dragon d is too good against the run) The Allen O. is very good and they are going to have to play their best come saturday to keep up with SLC.

    Both teams are multi-demensional, SLC is always good on keeping the chains moving usually with Tre & Riley only though. Allen can run and pass with multiple backs and recievers. Would give SLC a slight edge on O overall and on D SLC is much better as Allen gives up big plays but holds when needed. Look at RR & SW games both with good O but Allen held when really had to.

    So the real way to bet SLC is like Trinty did, jam the recievers at the line, sack Dodge and contain the run with good run defense. Unfortunately, Allen is only so so at that. For Allen to win we need SLC to play like yesterday, 2 INT's & 2 fumbles lost as well as contain long bombs and the run. It can be done. Only Trinity and Katy have done so in the last few years. Would like to see Allen step up and do it next week but guess we'll see.

    This will be a great game as both teams have large followings and SLC looks to be suspect to getting beat. Trinty had them beat until the coach made two bonehead moves, not kicking the FG in 1st QTR and fack punt with 1:27 left. Their defense stifled SLC's O in that game and do not believe they would have been able to come back 10 pts with that time left and 80 yds if he had done everything right, but didn't so all just thoughts of how he lost the game as SLC won 22-21 instead of losing 24-22.

    Allen needs to learn how to defend the pass. I don't get it really. This team knows how to pass really well, why can't they learn how to defend something they're good at?

    Poor execution during practices during the week... Thats why SLC is so good at defending spread O's. Because they face the best recievers/QB/RB and Offense in the state everyday.

    HAVE YOU SEEN THE CARROLL D THIS YEAR? giving up 38 points is a rediculous statement.

    Go back and look at the Rockwall games for both teams..that would indicate how it might go....

    Whoa! No flames, please. It's a joke, sort of. Looks like I somehow hit a nerve there. Didn't realize it wasn't a laughing matter to some of you. Wow, what was it Shakespeare said about protesting too much? LOL.

    yes i have seen carrols d. they have not played the teams allen has played. carrols defense was toasted by trinity and will be hit hard against a better offense. they will give up points in the 30's believe me. this carrol teams is not as good as the past. this allen team is not the same team you have been blowing out the last couple of years. we will see how rediculious it is.
