    Yep, can understand that one...and yes we are ready for some football. Should be another great game this week and everyone knows the Eagles are guaranteed to win! Just which ones is what is not known for sure.

    That was pretty funny wasn't it. I am sure he would have preferred they edit that portion out.
    Actually he was concerned that they might have mixed up the game gatorade bottles with mine and we couldn't have Kenny drinking my medicinal elixir.

Looking forward to seeing that battle of behemoths, as the recording my son did of the first broadcast cut off in the 3rd quarter.

    I'm guessing a couple dozen Allen JV/freshman/MS coaches might be spending some film time as well.
    Is there a replay of the game tonight?

    Ditto that DeSoto "U" Dad. I was so exhausted on Sunday. It was such an emotional game. I am just now getting back into reality myself.

    You already have a bandwagon fan from Coppell in your midst. Maybe I will sit in the end zone and be Switzerland.

    I've had a head cold and collected about 10 lbs or buggers to flick during the game at tjw, allendad, bigdaddydog, and any Coppell folks in the vicinity. Gonna be a great game for sure.

    The replay was at 9 am today. May be another if they got enough eyeballs, and have some weak programming that needs to be bumped.

Should be an advantage though to the team that wins these.

    Agree that whoever wins next Saturday shoud be the favorite for the Championship game but of course Houston Lamar & S.A. O'Conner might not agree.

    This should really be a great game with DeSoto's big play threat offense vs. Allen's best defense they have had in years. Both have some athletes on their teams that can score at any give time, big offense & defensive lines, dual threat QB's and the desire to win this one to play for the State Championship. I will have to go with my favorite Allen Eagles to win.

    GO EAGLES!!!!!!!!
    Of course NOT!! LOL!! Go Lamar Redskins!!!!

White and Wilson are the marquee names but damn those receivers were tall, fast and caught some balls that they simply should not have. It is tough to scheme against them because of their 4 wide scheme. You cannot play zone or they will simply run it down your throat. Now what was open and we did NOT do was the short to intermediate pass that was open all FRIGGIN day but we ran into a pile had a huge number of 2nd and 8's and threw long. Kenny did well and our receivers did well but the fact is they are low percentage plays.
    The key to beating them is pushing your wide outs to sideline type routes and getting your slot receivers behind the LB's and under the safeties quickly, hold the ball too long and you get picked or your receiver gets decapitated. It is a short window but is there consistently. That is how we converted so many 3rd downs.
    Allen's defense is better than Carroll's IMO but Desoto is going to get their yards and their points. You can try ball control with the run but that will ultimately fail. Their LB's were fantastic. You are going to have to throw and if you want to keep them off the field the short passes will keep them honest and can open up the run game for brief snippets.
    I think this game is close enough that is may simply boil down to which set of teenage boys can keep their wits about them the best.
    Against Coppell their WRs did a great job with downfield blocking also. You better have your head on a swivel.

    Good to see those lurking finally post here. I knew O'Connor & Lamar folks would be checking things out since both hoping to win this week the same as I've been checking theirs. Hope to see one at Cowboy stadium on the 22nd (if the world survives the 2st & we make it past DeSoto).

    Long time lurker here. This match up forced me to post. I was witness to the devastation wrought upon the briefly-hopeful heads of the Coppell team at Eagle Stadium. Desoto might be the scariest high school football team. . .ummm. . .ever. The only team I might find equally terrifying was that Miami Northwestern Bulls bunch who came to play Southlake a few years back. Similarities abound.
    I've not read all of the posts thus far, but what I have read is largely about the Desoto offense. To be sure, they are explosive. Let me expound on what I saw on that Desoto defensive front. There are 3 players who could walk onto the LSU squad and compete effectively right NOW. #54 is a boulder mounted on a great big rocket sled. Merciless pursuit, great footwork, punishing tackling. This is what makes this game so exciting. Allen's big, physical, dare-I-say nasty O-line battling those bruisers on defense. Neither team has gone against the likes of each other before. Fire up those Richter scales boys. This one's going to be EPIC.
