Re: 100 Year Anniversary - Mason vs Junction

Punchers won 49-7 but it was a more competitive game than that. Junction has some talent, and they had no quit in them, even when the score got out of their control. Also, they were disciplined and played with class, other than one incident. They won't be an easy out this year.

You have to appreciate these old rivalries. Not many big city rivalries left due to growth, so it's up to us country folk.

Re: Does Talking Trash Work???

If the team you are trash talking has pride, I think it has the opposite effect you desire. I've seen an entire game change over a player standing over the other teams QB and talking trash and showing off. The team rallied around their QB and scored the next 3 touchdowns to win, and that was a playo...

Re: 100 Year Anniversary - Mason vs Junction

Been hearing the same thing - still, they only have the senseless, last minute loss to Christoval and a 2 TD loss to Johnson City (6-1) against 4 wins, and they do have a bunch of athletic talent. Typically, this will be their best game of the year because this is their biggest game of the year - ju...

Re CC London, remember when Calallen was terrorizing the area and was the hot place to move? Looks like London has taken that mantle.

Re: 2015 Week 1 Top Tens

So no relationship between success at sub-varsity level and varsity? Gotta call BS, unless you just rode the overgrown, mature running back who quit growing. No one is crowning anyone, but learning to play well and win under the pressure of high expectations is important.

Mason's 2014 JV beat a strong Wimberly JV to end a 9-1 season, then practiced 6 weeks with the varsity. This year's Sophs lost 1 game in three years of FB, so I think that is a wash with Shiner. Returning varsity players? Yes, Punchers lost some really good players and leaders, and some can't be rep...

Regarding the key plays at the end of the game, the photos and video show it was a fumble, beyond any doubt. As to the disputed call, I understood the call was Hands to the Facemask, not grabbing the facemask. I believe the replays verify he did hit the Mason QB in the facemask, so the call is also ...

Re: Ozona at Brackett

Having seen them both play Mason I'm thinking close game. Brackett has better athletes, but Ozona has some tough kids that won't quit, like the QB. He got smacked around all game and just kept on coming. Might come down to turnovers, penalties, and special teams.

42-0 at the half, Punchers. Purple swarm on defense, Brackett has no answer for offensive attack, whether by land or air. #4 is game, but I don't think he's used to this level of quickness and violence.

MaxPrep ranks Brackett 5th, Mason 14th

Quite a difference in those rankings; I assume the Punchers will be 7+ point underdogs in this one, even though it is at the Puncherdome. I don't keep up with the south Texas schools like I used to, so I'm not sure what to make of their record. Thoughts on this one?
