    Is the LT/Dawson game over, yet? Thought it was late in the 3rd Qtr.

    I didn't figure Midway's physicality would has such an effect on JT's offense. LT looks pretty dang physical on both sides of the ball. This is going to be one to watch if both teams hold true to form. Good luck guys.

    Beating a no-defense JT squad is bringing all the Hewitt folks out of the closet?

    This should be a great matchup. Both teams can score a bunch, both teams have a DEFENSE and both teams knock the sh1t out of the opponents...REPEATEDLY.

    Because this is the championship and both teams play solid D, I expect a game in the high 20s, low 30s for the winning team. History shows (with the exception of LT's 48 point beatdown of LV in '08), that 4A, LT's wins were 36-34 vs. HP in '07, 24-17 vs. LV in '09, and 27-7 vs. Ryan in '10.

    LT just hired the superintendent from Midway a month ago, so, this game has that much more meaning to him. Good times up at Jerryworld next Friday!

    I can't believe the season is almost over! Seems like it started just yesterday and here we are 16+ weeks into the season ready to defend yet another State 4A Title. GO CAVS!!!

    Hopefully we will get some good posts from some of the Midway folks. Since I know nothing about Midway, maybe someone can fill us in on strengths and weaknesses. Obviously they do things right there or they wouldn't be in the championship game.

    Looking forward to some good pre-game banter but keep it clean and hopefully we don't get the Village Idiot like we did with whatever that team was from Pearland! That little fellow was trouble. I'd like to be able to see things from his point of view but I can't seem to get my head that far up my a$$.

    Here's hoping for a fun week on the boards and a great game on Friday night!

    I think this game is going to be pretty close. Slobber knocker potential for sure. Midway plays the right way and they have confidence. But LT is still the King until someone takes the crown. It should be a good one to see for any football fan.

    Everyone should be rooting for LT to make history save for the Hewitt folks.

    Yeah. Not saying I've never seen such a dominating defensive effort. I just thought JT had a few more options offensively that would have taken advantage of Midway's aggression. I guess that's what I get for thinking.

    Suprisingly, the year that consistency early on flies out the window for Midway is the year they break through and make it to the state title game. Two years ago LV pulled out a squeaker against them in the semis when they had possibly their best team. This year they somehow get blown out by an average Belton team and then lose to albeit a red hot Waco team at the time, then demolish a very good Stephenville team and a solid Killeen team. I think their play so far in the playoffs has been up to their potential, so right now they are a very dangerous team.

    This might be as good as the 2009 LV-LT title game.

    Shamu, those are exactly my thoughts. I'm thinking those games early on that make you go "hmmmm", were just a piece to the puzzle that is d@mn near complete right now. Even after Midway lost those 2 games, Travis Stewart @ Dave Campell's kept saying that Midway was the road block between Ryan and the championship game. Obviously, they are not just a defensive team...especially as of late!

    I'm thinking the Cavs vs. Panthers Friday night is the feature matchup this weekend!

    Hoping Midway can give LT some good competition, and turn this one into
    a classic for the ages.

    Watching the Cowboys vs. Giants in Jerryworld in a thrilla...7-5...man that's a NICE stadium! Friday can't get here quick enough.

    Ok, I pulled these stats from the Panther site-they are only through the Ryan game:
    First Downs……………………………………………… 200
    Total Team Yards…………………………………. 5044
    Rushing Attempts……………………………………….. 425
    Total Rushing Yards……………………………………. 2590
    Average Rushing Yards………………………………… 6.1
    Passes Attempted………………………………………... 261
    Passes Completed………………………………………... 153
    Passes Had Intercepted…………………………………. 12
    Total Passing Yards……………………………….. 2454
    Pass Completion %……………………………………… 59%
    Fumbles Lost…………………………………………….. 9
    Punt Attempts……………………………………………. 38
    Extra Points……………………………………………… 55/57
    Field Goals……………………………………………….. 10/13
    Number Of Penalties……………………………………. 42


    It looks like they have a balanced attack (2,500 running and 2,500 passing) like LT. When I looked at the Ryan stats though, the ran the ball the whole time #5 Kelly had 158 yards on 35 carries, #3 Robertson had 55 yards on 9 carries. 3 for 9 for 23 yards passing.

    I would guess the game plan vs. LT would be similar in that LT's D will matchup in a similar fashion. Carter will need to slow that running attack down ala the CP/SV game plans and make them pass.
