    The elites in both "divisions" should start scheduling each other during the regular season. They can't meet in the state playoffs, so play during the year. I'd rather Rummel play WM than Escambia, Florida or some school in Mississippi.

    For the last two years John Ehret has taken a nice check and opened their season in West Monroe. If both teams win Friday, they'll face off again in the semi-finals. That would be the third rematch WM has faced this season. Pineville, Ruston, John Ehret. That disappoints me cuz our starters most of the season rarely played past the middle of the 3rd quarter.

    For the record I'd love to see this WM team play John Curtis. It would be one helluva game.
    Indeed it would. But, we won't see it because the LHSAA has robbed you of seeing that matchup with their silly "private school" rule.

    I lost interest in Louisiana High School football when the Class 5A and 4A schools voted to force John Curtis and Evangel (and the others) to play in Class 2A/1A. That was the single most chicken shit thing I've ever seen any athletic association do in sports. As far as I'm concerned, all 5A and 4A state championships since then in Louisiana have been and will continue to be bogus (or fake) until this is rectified.

    And it was all because the large 5A & 4A schools in Louisiana (including WM) were tired of losing to Evangel (and J Curtis, etc..). That's it. I can hear them now: "We don't think its fair for these private schools in Louisiana to play us little ole 5A schools....after all, we only have 2,000 students. We think it makes more sense for them to be forced down to play Haynesville (with only 100 student enrollement) instead."

    You can't make this stuff up. Shame on 'em.


    https://www.shreveporttimes.com/stor...tion/17945703/

    Ware and other smaller classification public schools face a staunch test when they line up across from John Curtis, Evangel and Calvary. “You know how many Division I athletes I’ve coached in 18 years (Ware, a Haynesville alum also spent time as an assistant at Haynesville before taking over the Knights program)? One. Devin White will be two. Ten years ago, Evangel won the 5A state championship. They lost one starter, and the next year they were playing us (Haynesville) in Class 1A.”


    The day the news came out that Evangel was reclassified into the smallest class, “Our kids were in the weight room when he heard about it. They were deflated. My first year at North Webster we had a jam-up football team. We beat Kinder in the first round of the playoffs and they haven’t lost a game since. Guess who we get in the second round? John Curtis with 25 Division I players. First time I watched that game film… I started laughing! Did I mention they were 2A? They do a good job coaching but can they coach better than some of us? Nope. It’s amazing how good of a coach you can become with great players.”

    Re: Prep Season 2018

    You are right, HD, and it's sad. But, don't lump all schools into that wimpy category. First, it was specifically Winnfield and Many that led the charge to have the private-public split in the playoffs. They are 2A and since they couldn't beat Curtis on the field, they sued. That is the biggest travesty in all of this. Coaching? Who's that idiot who claims Curtis doesn't do a better job coaching? Clueless moron. Curtis has great players BECAUSE THEY ARE DEVELOPED BY GREAT COACHES!

    I'd like to see a Super Conference in Louisiana High School Football. It would be by invitation only. The criteria is the school has to have a great football program. Wouldn't matter how many students are in the school, and the other sports are not considered. You can suck at basketball and baseball, but if your football team rocks, you will be considered. Of course, many of the schools who rock in football also do really well in other sports too. This conference can be divided into 4 divisions of 10 schools each. In football you would play 9 division games, and can schedule one non-division game for your 10. Then the playoffs will be 16 teams. The 1st and 2nd place teams from each division get in...that's 8, and then 8 at-large berths. We would get corporate sponsors to bring BIG BUCKS to the table. These 40 schools will be rolling in the money! And then all the wimpy-azz schools like Winnfield and Many can still have their regular, lousy state playoffs that no one will care about.

    Colleges will flock to recruit at these 40 super schools. Parents will want their kids to attend one of these super schools. Fans will flock to stadiums to see the super-quality football product on the field.

    And meanwhile....all the snowflakes at all those whiny-azz public schools can be relieved...breathe a huge sigh of relief...they will never ever have to worry about trying to compete with the BIG DOGS! Everyone will be happy!

    Rummel 10 Catholic-BR 13

    9-3

    Jay Roth is like Holtz, playing not to lose. Lousy Shreveport refs didn't help, but it was really Roth's fault. Too damn conservative in the play calling. That kicker/punter for C-BR is frickin' unreal. Drilled a 48 yd FG with plenty to spare. Routinely punts for 50 yds, with a high hang time. Cananove? is his name, something like that.

    Oh well! Raiders are primarily a junior team, will have 16 starters back, including 9 on that stout defense. So, wait till next year!

    So, West Monroe rolls into the Dome off of 4 shutouts. That is remarkable. No, "remarkable" is not strong enough of a term.

    The Super Ants, the 1974 Rummel Raiders' defense, set state records for fewest points allowed, fewest yards allowed....up to that point in history. I don't know if any of our records still stand today...probably not. Our '74 playoff run scores were:

    11-0
    7-6
    0-7 (loss in state semifinals)

    Our '74 regular season included 6 shutouts, in two games the opposition never had a single snap on our half of the 50. Our issue was our own anemic offense, which went 3 and out WAY too often. We spent a lot of time on the field. Yet, we were able to put up some pretty good results.

    But WM is rewriting the history books. FOUR shutouts in the Louisiana 5A playoffs!! Especially today, when high schools are running pretty sophisticated offenses. Wow! I have no words...

    I hope Zachary can score.....just once! This is ridiculous!

    Yes, WMU is ridiculous. A well-groomed team. John Ehret was much improved. Solid talent. WMU just outdid the Patriots. Offense, defense and special teams.
    Oh, and the crowd . . . scared all week by the forecast of heavy rains, the stands of The newer, bigger Don were filled 75% on the home side. When it did start sprinkling virtually no one left.

    Not used to that.

    On to the 'Dome for the Zachary rematch.

    I just hope Zachary can score...once! They might lose 50-7, but at least score.

    Reminds me of a funny line from the annals of sports' history. The Chicago Bears beat the Washington Redskins 73-0 in the NFL championship game. The 'skins' QB was Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh. Early in the game, score still 0-0, Baugh threw a perfect pass to an open WR...who dropped a sure TD. After the game a reporter asked Baugh if that missed TD changed the outcome of the game. Baugh replied, "Sure it did! We would have lost 73-7 instead!" Good to have a sense of humor.

    In the Rebels four post-season games, their offense has scored
    53
    43
    34
    28
    I'll be happy with them scoring in the teens, but higher than Z.

    55-46 final. Two HS QBs who I would take in Ruston in a heartbeat. They would start as a true freshman too.

    According to 24/7 Sports the STM QB has an offer from Tech. He’s only a junior.

    Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing while I was watching.
