    I guess ESPN is getting ready to fill those Hockey (are whatever they call that game on ice) slots up with High school football games.

    It's harder to play and 5x as boring. I hope it never
    comes back. Clogs up Sportscenter with too much garbage.
    Next stop....Nascar...one down and one to go.

    So what does anyone know about these two teams? Carroll and Ryan were very highly ranked last season. I was at the game last yaer in Dragon Stadium and for the hosting school, it is truly a zoo with the ESPN folks running all over the place. But it sure comes out well on tv. Would certainly prefer to watch good high school football than ice hockey anytime.

    tex, your panties are sure in a wad today. what's bugging you?
    the harder i work, the luckier i get to pay more taxes so someone unluckier than me doesn't have to work so hard
    No one needs luck or even best wishes when all are pulling in the same direction
    let's get'r done-cs rip
    If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse
    But mostly, the Cowboys have become the Kardashians of the NFL - with no discernible talent, famous for being famous

    Hoover was Alabama's 6A State Champs. In fact Hoover has won Alabama 6A title like 4 times in 5 years and lost once in the Title game. Other words they are pretty much the top dog in Alabama every year. By the way Alabama 6A is like ( 1,100-2,500) kids. Hoover is Alabama's largest enrollment schools with like 2,400 kids. I think they are the only school in Alabama with over 2,000 kids.

    There is a rumor that in 2006 the Woodlands and Hoover are going to play.

    Thanks. I throughly enjoyed the ESPN broadcast last year from Carroll. How about the team from Florida?

    That should be an interesting game. I have consistantly seen Hoover ranked in the top 25 nationally each year. I am not sure about the Florida team. But i do look forward to seeing how HS football is played in a state other than Texas.

    Nease has been one of the stronger teams from Florida. I believe they play in Florida 5A size. But, in Florida the rating system (A, AA, AAA, AAAA and so forth) is kind of screwy because its not really based on the schools enrollment numbers. They base it on alot of different factors that I dont really know what all of them are.

    Some schools in Florida 3A or alot bigger than Florida 6A teams. Its weird.

    actually, its not nearly as hard, from experience of playing both, the only thing thats hard to get down at first is the skating part. hockey isnt an easy sport, but overall, id say football is a tougher sport to play. thats just me.

    I would have to say football probably takes more brains...
    you have to remember plays...defenses....this means this...
    that means that...there is less room for error in football. IMO...
    Hockey is a lot more fun to watch when you have had a few
    adult beverages and it's in person....otherwise...that crap is boring.
