    I can't understand how the refs blew the call on the muffed punt. That's basic stuff.

Then they won in overtime. That is great coaching.

    It's great coaching if it works. It's great that it did, I love endings like that.

    Check out the video. Pine View scored on a 60-yd TD pass with one second left in regulation. Amazing game.

    Juan Diego is a private school and they normally dominate. Nice to see them lose.

    I heard this about Juan Diego. Not sure if it's true. They run that wishbone system and let each class play together to gain chemistry and don't play any players up. The senior class this year didn't lose a game from 9th grade up. This would be their first loss.

    60 yd pass and caught with 3 defenders crashing around him. Almost like Andrew George w/ two Ute defenders.

    Also, the 2 point conversion was a crazy play too.

    Holy crap! 63-14 with 11 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Blue Springs is demolishing Lee's Summit. Wow.

    63-21 is the final. Gotta love HS football. Last year these two teams combined for a final score of 86-64...in football. LOL.

    Anyway, 22 game win streak for my Wildcats. Semi-finals are next.

    Idaho is the bomb. There are a few posters who hail from here. go to www.idahosports.com and look at the brackets. Tommorrow one in county named after 16th President Ia Div II semifinals will be played. Our school had to travel up there last year. A Christian school that I guess can recruit is pretty dominant in our conference this year. I seen several of there fans walk through gate without paying. Gate left open where there was no ticket taker. I could crawl over fence too. Have accidently paid for more people by not asking for change on 20 dollar bill.

    They petitioned to stay DII but if enrollment goes up can't do the post season. Courd e Lane should win 5a, Skyview of Nampa maybe 4a, Gooding Shelley that ought to be a game. Declo could do ok. Hagerman has been steamrolling everybody this year in 1a Div I. See complaints when people preview games at Idaho sports. www.sportsboards.com good place to rant and rave too. Idaho semifinals this week and Championships next. Most will be crowded in Holt I think.

    Blue Springs is up to 13 in the MaxPrep composite rankings. We face Eureka tonight, whom I've never heard of, but they're 11-1 and in the semis. So apparently they don't suck, however they are ranked just #28 in the state. Should be interesting, especially the unis, both teams' mascot is the Wildcat and both have purple and gold colors and both use the K-State Wildcat logo. I expect a win tonight, and don't think it will be close. Lee's Summit, which we demolished 63-21 last week was a top 10 team.

    The other semi features Hazelwood Central and Rock Bridge, they are ranked 10th and 13th in the state. They are St. Louis teams and I don't know much about them other than one of the Hazelwood schools (East, West or Central, I forget which though I think it's Central) is perennially very strong. In the state of Missouri the power teams year in and year out are Rockhurst, Blue Springs, Jefferson City, and Hazelwood Central. I'm sure I under-representing some St. Louis teams, though. Anyway, I expect a Blue Springs - Hazelwood Central final next week. It's HS football though, so anything can happen.

    Blue Springs beat Eureka 42-14 in the battle of the purple and gold wildcats. We face Rock Bridge in the MO state finals next week. Rock Bridge beat Hazelwood Central 36-33. Rock Bridge was ranked #13 in the state. Should be a good game, but I expect my Wildcats to repeat as state champs. I have a real hard time believing St. Louis HS football is anywhere near the caliber seen in KC.

    I think the matchups might favor Timpview. It seems that East's main strength is their power run game and Timpview's strength is their front seven. Yesterday Timpview held Woods Cross to 97 yards and 7 first downs, much of that coming once the game was out of reach and subs were in the game. Most of the Timpview D-line and linebackers have D-1 offers. But East is also incredibly deep and talented. Should be an amazing game.
    Swish. Timpview beats East in a thriller, 33-28.

    Gabe Reid had a monster game for Timpview, including the game-clinching sack at the end. Son of former Cougar Spencer Reid. Rumor has it that he got an offer from Utah after the game. Just a junior.

    That has to a crushing loss for East. Second year in a row they lose to Timpview in the playoffs and they seemed to have everything going their way this year. They have huge athletic players and set several state records this year on offense. They jumped out to a quick 13-0 lead and it was 25-21 for East at the half but they were held to only a field goal in the second half.

    Timpview wins 6th title in 7 years. They have played in the championship game now 11 times and won 10. Several of Timpview's front seven will be playing for BYU next year. Hopefully, Isaiah Nacua will be one of them.

    I still can't over how big and athletic that East team is. But they got out-coached today. All that talent but they are one-dimensional with only 12 yards passing.

    East is 33-4 over the last three years. Two losses to Logan and two losses to Timpview. Can't win the big games.

    We usually deal with this thing in Utah called "snow" that usually falls in November/December. I don't know if y'all have heard of it or not. And if there isn't snow, the temp is usually pretty cold. While it's fine to play a game in occasionally, it's probably not exactly conducive for HS kids to be out practicing in it 4 days a week. Unfortunately, our HS don't have indoor football facilities to combat the cold weather.

    Yes, we have seen that snow stuff a few times. It usually leaves the next day.

    Folks just need to understand Texas prep football or Friday Night Lights. Here's a two minute youtube video of my local team the Allen Eagles. They're undefeated and defending 5-A division I Texas state champions; have won their first two playoff games so the field of 64 is now at 16. Play again this weekend in Baylor's stadium. Their starting center is LDS and has verbaled to BYU. Their Jr. starting QB is being billed by some as the next Johnny Football and will probably end up signing with Texas A&M - Aggies have offered and is the son of a former Aggie QB.

    I am planning to take a trip to Arlington to see the 5A championship games. I expect Allen will be there given how they have been playing and being ranked #1. It should be fun.

    There is a Hawaiian family in my ward that has been taking the discussions and are set to be baptized next month (in Hawaii). Two of their sons play for Bishop Gorman (the family moved here so they could play there). The boys have been pretty quiet in church for the most part, but yesterday in priesthood the older boy stood up and invited the entire ward to the state championship game in two weeks, "if God blesses us to be there." They still have to beat Palo Verde next week in the semis. If they make it, I will be in the stands with my son at Sam Boyd.

    There are still so many good teams. If Allen beats The Woodlands next week (don't know much about that Houston area team) they will probably play Dallas Skyline. I think Allen can win those two but Skyline has a very good offense. Then Allen will most likely have DeSoto or Southlake Carroll waiting for them in the semis. DeSoto is as good as Allen and it's always difficult to defeat the same good team (Southlake Carroll) twice in the same season.

    The next 5-A District I champion will come from that side of the bracket - the winner of Allen vs DeSoto/Southlake Carroll.

    Yeah, I agree...

    Allen should beat the Woodlands. I think Dallas Skyline beat them at their home. Dallas Skyline is pretty good but not as good as Allen. They beat Plano by a couple of touchdowns. Allen kicked the crap out of Plano in district play. So I suspect Allen will win Region 2 if they stay healthy.

    Southlake Carroll and Trinity get to beat each other up this next week and the winner of that (most likely Carroll) will get to lose to DeSoto for Region 1. I hope that Caroll doesn't beat DeSoto. Allen has had bad luck playing them in the past. The semifinal game between Allen (ranked #1) and DeSoto (ranked #2) should be a good one. Yes, the winner of that I suspect will be the state champion for division 1. I suspect they will be playing Houston Lamar. The other good team coming out of Houston is Katy but they are in division 2.

    I think you are spot on. Allen has beaten Southlake Carroll the last two seasons in non-division play. But has yet to defeat them in the playoffs and Southlake has knocked Allen out about 4-5 times. But I think Allen has finally turned the corner on Southlake but they are closely matched.

    I wish Katy were in the Division I bracket. On second thought, maybe not. I think Katy was playing better football than Allen last year in the playoffs and would have beaten Allen had they played. Their OL looked like it was a BCS OL and their stud RB is redshirting at Nebraska this year.

    I know everyone is interested in the MO 6A finals, so in the interest of everyone, at the end of the first quarter Blue Springs 7 - Rock Bridge - 0

    I wish Katy were in the Division I bracket. On second thought, maybe not. I think Katy was playing better football than Allen last year in the playoffs and would have beaten Allen had they played. Their OL looked like it was a BCS OL and their stud RB is redshirting at Nebraska this year.
    I just got back from watching HP go down to Denton Guyer at Allen's temple of the football gods. Guyer had a heck of a 4th quarter. I noticed the Eagles are down to DeSoto in the 4th quarter. It hasn't been a good football Saturday.

    I suppose the day got better when Allen overcame a 15-point deficit to defeat DeSoto (42-35). Sometimes it's just good fortune that seperates two outstanding teams like having a short punt bounce off a blocker in the final minute. I couldn't believe the number of penalty flags thrown on both teams (100+ yards against each team).

    Allen plays Pearland in the Division I 5-A finals at Jerry World/Cowboy AT&T Stadium. The other game, Divion II 5-A, is a rematch of last year's championship game: Katy vs Cedar Hill. Although I have a lot of respect for Katy, I'm rooting for Cedar Hill so Allen can claim they beat the other division's champion. Cedar Hill's only losses were against Allen and DeSoto.
