Do you think there is any chance that we have any major upsets this week? While a 5 seed beating a 4 is technically a upset, does anybody believe that we can have a 6, 7, or 8 sneak up on one of the top 3 seeds?
Watch Dexter vs Freddy Coach Pixley Will have his players ready! Dexter always plays well this time of the year
i really have to agree with BG on this one. the only upset that i can see coming is freddy/dexter. won't be surprised if we see some more though. i'm less of a homer than you are BG.
I was going to say Dexter as well, because despite their record they do have a lot of talent, they're just young. However, word is that the team has pretty much checked out. That combined with several injuries and losing one of their best defensive players before last weeks game will probably keep them from being able to pull off the upset. Hopefully I'm wrong though.
Have to agree with Daddy. While the Blackcats are tons better than last year, game experience the Bearcats have been gaining over the season has to account for something. Coach Pixley seems to be able to get the most out of the talent he has.
The other upset special I see is NMCC overcoming Potosi. I didn't see much when I saw NMCC two weeks ago, so the big win over Portageville is perplexing to me and Potosi lost to a down DeSoto squad.
In Class 4, I think the Festus - Cape game may be an upset for Cape.
I just got the feeling that the 4 & 5 seed games in all classes may be the best games this week.
I think all you are crazy as a bat from Hades. No way Dexter beats Fredricktown. I would say Dexter is awful, but that's giving awful a bad name. Dexter just doesn't have the talent this year. Its not the coaching, its the talent and Dexter has none!!
REDDIRT DOG, I fully expect Dexter to show up and play as hard as they always do. There is no quit in these kids. I see no evidence the kids have checked out mentally. True, we have had some key players injured and suspended recently, but we actually had one of our best games offensively last week against Malden. Coach Pixley will have the Bearcats ready to play against Freddy this week.
Jolly Dump, you have no idea what you are talking about and that's putting it mildly. Come back when you have something intelligent to say. Until then, you're just showing your ignorance. Not to mention a total lack of manners. Try to remember these are high school kids you are talking about. They work their guts out and deserve better than that.
I've seen dexter they have talent! Now I haven't seen them in 8 weeks but I'd say they have gotten better
Yeah a 1-8 record is all kinds of talent! Sorry that my expectations of the word talent does not include a 1-8 record with the only win against a more awful Kennet team! And I am not calling out individual players, the team as a whole has no talent and you are all more blind than a cave bat for thinking 1-8 is talent. Freddy is going to walk all over Dexter in that game simply because Freddy has better talent. I think Pixley is a very good coach, but unfortunately this year he doesn't have anyone to coach! Meanshile Fredricktown does! Preacher Man I now know just how unintelligent you are for backing such things that Dexter will upset Freddy. Dexter beating Fredricktown--now that is ignorant!
"I want to ask that EVERYONE on this website stop saying teams or players "stink", "blow", and end the general bashing that has become more and more prevalent over the past few weeks. I really don't want to see another one of Crader's articles where she basically has to put everyone in the forums in their place. It also adds nothing to the conversation and brings down the general IQ of the discussions being made. Let the teams hash it out themselves over the next few weeks just how good (which apparently ranges anywhere from only state champions to every team which fields enough guys depending on who you ask) they are. Most of the people on here are adults. To the adults and even those who aren't, have the maturity to act like one. This place is a lot more fun when it is civil and the ribbing is friendly. Anyway, that's my take."--I wrote that in my column Sunday. I'd say it applies in this situation.
Just keep talking Jolly. The more you run your mouth the dumber and ruder you sound. Have you even seen Dexter play? Is it possible you can't see that good players can play on a struggling team? Do you understand that this is a young team with only four returning starters and two of them went down early with season-ending injuries? I could take the time and explain some other things to you, but why bother? I doubt you would understand it. And by the way, the first person to disagree with you on that "talentless" football team is Coach Aaron Pixley, that "very good coach" you mentioned.
Jolly Dump I know Dexter is lacking experience this year but all I was saying was if there was a game that could b an upset it could b this game! Freddy is not playing there best ball right now and Dexter has nothing to loose! And at the beginning of the year I had a habit of saying things like awful, stink , sucks! But sideline is right! You could use other words like I do like Less experienced or being young! But I look for dexter to return next year for sure!!
Thanks BG. I appreciate it.
I have to disagree with you my friend Bleed. The only bad play the Blackcats have done is the second half in Ste Gen. We could argue defensive strategy used by the Blackcats in the NoCo game, they got burned leaving a good passer with targets only in man coverage. NoCo is a VASTLY improved team, they played a defensive set that took FredMo's deep threats away.
I can tell right off Jolly Dump isn't from Fredericktown, he can't spell it properly.....
NoCo took their deep threats away, but had no answer for the run game or Justin Sawyer.
I would have to agree on the coverage scheme, they haven't played zone in weeks.
Green, I think they are playing good football, have lost 4 games, 3 state ranked. They were in all 4, even the SG game despite the final score. They have two key starters back from injury this week as well.
They will not be looking past Dexter, especially after the last two years.
I think Jolly Dump is from Dexter and just giving the Bearcats some fuel.
Talked to Coach Henson today, he says Dexter has a really nice, quick QB and a couple nice recievers to throw to.
Preach, who are these kids so I can keep an eye on them?
All Madison County MVP would be correct where I am from, or the area I am from. And I have seen da BEARcats play several times this season and they have been more cat than bear in every game I've watched. That is because they are young and inexperienced, ie less talent. But that does not mean I should say any team is awful etc. For that I apologize. Bleed Green and Sideline at least have ways of putting me in my place without resulting to needless name calling, unlike a man who calls himself preacher man. I don't ever want to attend a church where the so called preacher mocks his congregation with childish names.
AMEN!! jolly dump
yea i said freddy would walk all over dexter back in 2010 and it bit me in the butt... dexter's record was trash then too. so i'm not saying a freaking word this year about dexter losing this game.
Dexters kids will play hard. They have one of the top 5 receivers in the semo area in the Young kid. Their TB is pretty good as well as their QB. I don't know what their record is now but I do know they will play hard and if they get a lead, they could get a little amped up and play right with Fredtown.
Jolly, I appreciate the apology. I too apologize for offending you. I never want to tarnish the image of the great congregation I work with.
AMC MVP, Dexter's QB is D.J. Dowdy. The WR's are Chase Young, Ethan Stevens, and Austin Aldridge.
Dexter had PHC 8-7 at the half. They are not a bad team, just young. I can very well see possibly having to play Dexter again in the district semi-finals. Freddy is a good team but this time of year anything can happen.
First off, I have not seen Fredricktown but once, so I cannot at all speak for them. I have, however, had the opportunity to see Dexter several times. They are not as young as last weeks Malden team which started only two seniors (not to mention four freshmen), oh and all but maybe two do not play both sides of the ball all night. If a coach has not been able to coach a team up by week nine, I would suggest there are at least a couple of issues that should be addressed; team chemistry, talent, or the unspeakable idea that maybe running the same 9 plays that you've executed for the last several years should be tweaked, added to significantly, or thrown out all together. Each new year brings new players which brings new talent that may need to be utilized in different ways than before.
As for the offense, if Malden was its best night, I'd say they have no chance of beating F-town. Dexter was never in control of that game, one touchdown was from a kick off return versus their JV, another scored against their JV, so how many does leave scored against a legit varsity squad.....1.5, oh and they gave up 58. Stats alone say if Dexter beats F-town, then yes it would be a big upset.
Just a side note on coaching a team up. I do not believe that Portageville is a "naturally" stellar team. I think they are a great example of taking a good team and making them a really good team by coaching them up and changing the program. That is how in my humble opinion, great programs are made. We have some great programs in our region.
Mobrigade, I'm not disagreeing with all your points and I share some of your concerns. IMO, we need a coach whose sole responsibility is the defense like we had last season. As for Malden, they have had a great season and have a really good team, but if they had played a schedule comparable to Dexter's, they would have 4 or 5 fewer wins.
Malden played up too. And you're right, Rick did a great job with the defense. It's ok to be down a couple years, that happens, my main gripe is that a team must adjust or make changes. Malden picked up a third class 3 team (one that beat Dexter, but was thumped by Malden).
Mobrigade, as I said, we share the same concerns. Still, even though we lost big to Malden, had we put up the offensive numbers against Bluff, NMCC, and Charleston as we did in the Malden game, I have no doubt we would've won all three of those games. And yes, Malden did play up more, but they still only played one Top 10 team, whereas Dexter played four Top 10 teams plus a Class 5 school in Poplar Bluff. Again, I'm not trying to take anything away from Malden, just pointing out that their strength of schedule was nowhere near comparable to Dexter's.
Not taking anything away from Dexter but to say someone is coaching up a team that just got beat by 30+ is absurd. It would be different if a team started 0-5 and won 3 of last 4 but this team only beat a team that beat EP. Not exactly something you can hold your hat on. And to say a team would only have a few wins is awfully petty when they beat your team by 30+.
sorry meant to say kennett. my bad on that
I got confused because of the lack of wins. Dexter only beat Kennett who only beat EP. Sorry.
dexter is kinda like park hills and herky for freddy though. no matter how untalented either team is, it's usually a REALLY good game. i'm not saying i think dexter WILL beat freddy. but i ain't putting my foot in my mouth again this year.
Daddy you have no problem this year or for the next 2-3 years! There will be no coaching up when it comes to Dexter
Everyone on this website knows I'm the guy who never counts a team out against any opponent and that doesn't change in this situation. There is always a chance that Dexter pulls out this win. However, I think we are undervaluing Fredericktown right now and that some people are trying to find any upset and this is the closest people are seeing to it. The only team who has held Freddy below twenty points this year was PHC who have a very good defense. The Blackcats were close to beating PHC and Maplewood, played Ste. Gen well, and barely lost to North County. Three of those teams are state ranked and the other is a good Class 4 team (arguably the second best in their district). They also blew out another good Class 4 team in Hillsboro and blew out NMCC 42-6 only two weeks after NMCC beat Dexter. The Bearcats are better than their 1-8 record but with their youth, injuries, and what they have shown this season, I don't see them keeping up with Fredericktown. I'd say the Blackcats win by two or three touchdowns.
I remember a couple years ago when the ole sideline starter was throwing armchair zingers at cape central fans in that 600+ comment forum. Back in his HS days anyway!
I know I am new to commenting on this site but I have been reading for a while and I just want to say a few things to those who read this daily:
1. sideline, cheese, and beef are pretty reasonable. Everyone is a homer but those guys keep it straight for the most part.
2. BG is ridiculous! He thinks Ste. Gen could beat Nick Saban and Alabama!
3. Upsets outside of 4-5 games will be tough to come by.
4. The new format is great.
5. Chances Dexter can beat anyone... Zero
6. Chances Monroe and Cville get beat before MRH...not good!
7. One of the potential best games on Halloween...Charleston at Malden
It was like the wild west on here back in those times. Had to fend for your territory.
The Truth- I agree....Sidelinestarter- glad someone chimed in w F town point of view, I again, concur.
Ain't that the truth, problem is now they doing to much learnin in the skoo!
I wasn't in school during the 2010-11 season though. Wasn't part of that high school group.
Appreciate "some" of the respect shown to Dexter. Sideline starter hit the nail on the head that some are understating the talent Fred-town has. They have a **** tough QB, running back and will try to out-weight room you on the front. Plain and simple Dexter has some kids starting varsity that would have a hard time getting JV minutes. It's one of those years that a program (in the SEMO area) will have every once in a while. Just too young and too soft. Preach's boys are tough as nails and hit the weight room hard but Coach Pixley just has too many softies. Give them another year in the weight room and throw them out on the field next year and see what happens. Until then, in my opinion, this a 3 or more touchdown game. Hope I'm wrong. Good luck to all SEMO area teams.
I agree with everything you said Truth! There's very few people I view as credible on this site, but those three normally have a pretty good grasp of football in SEMO.. While the Malden/Charleston game should be very entertaining, I don't see either really posing much of a threat to Caruthersville.
As far as the Head Coach of a team agreeing or disagreeing I would HOPE that he believes in his team. Even I don't, I would hope the coach does.
Fredericktown is very aware that Dexter is an upset threat. Watched practice some yesterday and it was very intense and wild, as usual. They are an ethusiastic bunch. I know they are very dissapointed to have 4 losses right now.
As for sonny's comment, Gremminger is a beast. I know the area has had some great running QBs, but I can't remember many who run like a fullback they way he does. And his partner in the backfield is a ferocious blocker. I never imagined that pudgy 2nd team QB I coached in MS would turn into this.
One more time. Anyone who concludes there is zero talent on a struggling team needs to take a course in logic at their local university. To give just one example from Dexter. Chase Young has already signed to play baseball at UT Martin. Anybody who has seen him play football knows he is a great player as well and his stats show that he is one of the top WR's in Semo. Again, everyone needs to remember these are high school kids we are talking about. Most of them work very hard and none of them deserve to be belittled, even by those who want to hide behind cliches like "just stating the facts" or telling "the-truth."
Now, I did not belittle Malden. I said they have had a great season and have a very good team. What I did say was their strength of schedule is nowhere comparable to Dexter's. What's petty about that? If the Green Wave played Ste. Gen, PHC, Sikeston, and Poplar Bluff, how many of those games would they realistically have won?
As far as Dexter goes, I think I know this team about as well as any non-coach in town. I know about their struggles on and off the gridiron. They are better than their 1-8 record. We have had close games with Bluff, NMCC, and Charleston that could have gone either way. This year's team is young, inexperienced, and decimated by injuries. We have JV starters playing varsity minutes because of all the injuries and other issues. Two of our returning starters went down early with season-ending injuries and a third starter missed half the season. That said, no one is excusing poor play or some questionable coaching decisions this year. Mobrigade makes some valid points here. And Sonny, thanks for the kind words about my two boys.
I think everyone knows Fredericktown is a big favorite at home against Dexter. All I can tell you is that the Bearcats will show up and play hard as they have every game this year.
Finally, there are a number of posters who know what they are talking about in addition to Sideline, Cheese, and Beef. Guys like BuckMajor, REDDIRT DOG, BillShakespeare, The Daddy, and Zachattack are intelligent, well-informed, and witty to name but a few off the top of my head.
Thanks Preach! Haha Just joking I know I'm the most Hated!!
You've come a long way BG. Keep it up.
Wait until Bball starts up. Sideline will have reinforcements. Sikeston nation will flood our home everyone calls Semoball...lol
I don't think its important whether or not Malden would defete any of teams because they played a football game against Dexter and absolutely destroyed them. And mobridge is correct in the fact that the only TDs Dexter scored were against Malden's JV special teams and secondary. 4 TD margin was a destruction and in all reality it should not have been that close. Every year people like to overhype the Bearcats, and the same things people were getting fired up against is the same thing that is going on in this conversation.
Is Chase Young going to play? I saw in the previews that he left the game last week with a leg injury and was in a boot.
Just to clear something up, Dexter's first score was a rushing TD in the first quarter when they were down 7. I doubt the JV was in JUST yet. The second did come from a kickoff return but Dexter was only down 11 at that point so, again, I doubt the JV had been subbed in. The next touchdown was a long pass to end the half when the cats were down 21. It is conceivable that the JV was in but very doubtful since it was still the first half. The final score came in the 4th with the cats down 31 so that was likely the JV but still the first 3 scores were not so to say that Dexter only scored on Malden's JV is inaccurate. This info came from an article written about the game so I can't personally confirm any of this, I'm just repeating what I read. Not that it matters. Dexter got rolled because they are not a very good team this year. The players are young, weak, and inexperienced. That's not a slam on them. It's just stating and unfortunate fact. They will most likely improve by next season.
Jolly, if you're talking about strength of schedule comparisons, why doesn't it matter? Yes, Malden beat us handily. Who ever denied it? And who over-hyped Dexter this year? I myself said before the season they might go 5-4. We all knew the challenges that faced the Bearcats this year. The truth is that Murphy's Law has prevailed this year for Dexter. I could give you a laundry list of problems a mile long both on and off the field that have just taken their toll on the team this season. But there's no quit in these boys as anyone who has seen them play will tell you. They have taken their lumps and learned from it this season and will be that much better for it next season.
But you are both wrong in saying we only scored on Malden's JV. Just one example: Dexter scored a rushing TD in the first quarter of the game. Was that against Malden's JV? If either you or Mobridge say yes, I'm asking you both for the proof.
AMC MVP, Chase should play Thursday night.
I think Sikeston win tomorrow, but loses next game against Cape or Festus!!!
Also hope Ste. Gen gets eliminated early so BG will disappear into the sunset. At least until next year,,, I would rather hear from the guy from Scott City about there basketball team. At least he had his own thread and didn't ruin all the others with his talk about only his team.
Looks like I have another fan! Hope u ain't a stalker
Dude can't u come up with your own material? That's been used and already established months ago!! How about you think about it over a bowl of Mac and Cheese while you drink your government issued powder milk!!
According to numbers on the jersey and the roster, half of the kick-off team is in fact JV, the last touchdown was against JV, the other two as stated before were legit offensive varsity against varsity touchdowns (the varsity starts four freshmen and several sophomores). Again, I'm not saying the players will not get better I am sure they will, but if you look at age and experience, Dexter and Malden are going to be close. I do not live in Malden, I am simply disagreeing that Dexter is the upset game to look for and gave my reasons as such attempting to keep my rhetoric hospitable to the players. In my humble opinion I believe coaching staff needs to look at making some major changes in scheme and etc. and judging from the past, that will not be the case. There are some players on that team with some great talent, but need to be put in a position they can win in. Last week that team started shutting down before the half, trash talking is always present in football, but players calling other players names that should never be used was (some teams have issues playing team with different demographics)....you could hear the quarterback screaming at a lineman in the huddle to shut his mouth from the stands (quarterback seems to have a level head on his shoulders). Not sure what game I'll watch tomorrow night.
And I for one mobridge, from living in Dexter for over a decade, can tell you that kind of language is any every occurance in Dexter. Granted not everyone uses those words but a good portion of the town does. And obviously I don't have to point that out that Dexter didn't win 4 or 5 games, but I will anyway. They only one game and no matter how you slice the pie its just not good. I am willing to never post on this forum again if Freddy doesn't win by 20. I will just disappear into the midst if that point spread isn't met.
I think most points have been hammered on while Dexter is having a less than average season, you should still go out and support your team and not be a bandwagon jumper depending on their success because true fans will support them no matter what. I know that this team will not be down for long and I really would have liked to seen them at full strength this year but they lost 2 guys with season ending injuries at the beginning of the year. They lost almost all of their offense from last year and any team is going to suffer because of that inexperience plays a big factor in a teams success and this team had little to no returning starters.
Mobrigade, I am not questioning much of what you say. I have said for five years now, our offense and defense need to get more creative. One thing I will disagree with you on is that the team starting shutting down before the half of the Malden game. You don't know what was in their hearts. Moreover, how can you say that when Dexter scored on the last play of the 1st half?
Jolly, everyone is disappointed in the results of Dexter's season, the players most of all. But predicting a 5-4 season is hardly over-hyping a team.
If you had told me before the season that Dexter was going to beat Kennett, New Madrid, Charleston, Malden, and Poplar Bluff for a 5-4 record, I don't think that would have been farfetched considering where all of those teams were coming from off of last season.
Earlier in the year I predicted NC to knock off Farmington when everyone was on Farmingtons bandwagon. Now I have to change my view even though NC won the first matchup. It is very possible that Farmington turns the table this time for a few reasons. One, Farm has vastly improved and two, NC's best RB will sit this contest out. Could be a nailbiter.
I agree that I don't think Dexter will ever quit. They never have in any sport I have watched. None of those kids will quit. But its not being a band wagon jumper just because you don't think the team is good. I said some about the Cardinals after they blew the NLCS, but that doesn't mean I stopped supporting them. I would like to think of myself as one of the most passionate Cardinal fan there is, but I will still say what's on my mind.
Lets just hope no matter who wins what, no one gets hurt and all fans have a safe trip where ever they are headed. Bottom line is that everyone here loves a collision sport that is uniquely an American sport like no other. Good luck tomorrow night and God speed.
I'm thinking about going to the Cabool vs. Portageville game, heard their going to have the Blue Angels fly over lol.
well AMC MVP, that narrows it down to about 3 people you could be. i think i know who you are now after 2 years.
I'm Joey Lewandowski
No real upsets in the first round I think. Hayti over St. Vincent is the only one I see and that's a 4-5 game. I see some in the next round or later. Sikeston and C-Ville might be upended. I think Charleston could give C-Ville a run if the injuries don't clear up. I also see Hayti over P-Ville in the second round as well.
I am Legend.
Football playoffs finally start tonight! Who's excited, anybody!? andybody!? Leave all that BS outside, we're gonna celebrate all night, let's have fun tonight, no fights, turn that Dre track way up high, making you dance all night and I got some real heat for you this time, it doesn't matter if you're white or black, let's get crunk 'cause Buck's back, don't need no hateration, holleration, in this football game, let's get it perculatin' while you're waitin', toucdowns scored for me!!

Heading out to the game. Good luck to all the teams tonight and everyone have a safe trip to and from the games.
Cheese good luck to you as well! Sky's not looking to great right now! Hope all is well 3 hrs south
Sorry to all of you who called me unintelligent, dumb, and those other pleasant words. You guys were in fact correct. I had no idea what I was saying when it came to the Dexter-Freddy game. I said 3-4 TD win by Freddy. I was wrong. Freddy will win by much more. 42-0 at the half. Sorry again for the ignorance.
It was ugly, and not in a sloppy way. It was an absolute beat down.
here's p diddy...
Nice six seed
I do not think Preacher has any words to eat. He was just defending his team after what Jolly said. I would have done just the same thing. In the end Jolly did predict that freddy would win, that doesn't mean dexter doesn't have talent, just that freddy has more. Come on man, no need to start stuff.
I didnt appreciate the name calling. It is what it is.
BTW, I also made the comment I would never post here again if Fred-town did not win by at least 20. So another reason for my victory celebration.
Jolly, I have no idea how old you or "The-Truth" is, but one day you may have a son who plays high school football. One day that son will walk off the field for the final time as a senior heart-broken over a tough loss. One day you may have to console that son like I did tonight. If or when that happens, you may learn a little compassion and a little less sarcasm. Congrats on your victory celebration.
I'm not gonna say what I was going to say, there is no need to, just look at the scoreboard. Maybe next year they'll be coached up better, meanwhile they can learn from such a humbling experience, we've all been there, it's just that some of us don't act like we haven't.
Preacher, the shoe fits on the other foot too, explain to a senior playing both ways that gets beat why ppl (students) are using words that he learns in school were used in the 60s a lot but not appropriate now, some things change, but some towns don't. I wld sure hope that with a handle like Preacher you wldn't condone this, but there are far more who do.
Mobrigade I really don't understand your point. I don't condone any kind of profanity or racist language under any circumstances. Such talk has never been appropriate. Are you insinuating that my oldest son uses such language on the football field?
I'm saying his team does, I am suggesting that due to your handle you do not endorse such behavior.
Sadly Mobrigade those bad attitudes and language still exist everywhere. But what does that have to do with the point I was making to Jolly and "The-Truth"? What kind of "fans" call their team such awful names and celebrate such a bad defeat and season?
New Madrid to upset Potty. They must take their own fireworks
Jolly Dump and mobrigade, this is a sports forum and I have not found one logical or debatable subject or topic from either one of you guys. You all want to come on here and bash teams I am really getting sick of it, read here...this is at the top of the page on the main page of this forum.
This is the place for respectful disagreements, constructive criticisms and spirited discussion about high school football. However, as you discuss a coach's third down play call or a heart-breaking missed extra point, we ask that you keep in mind that the players are students first and athletes second. We want coaches, players and fans alike to be able to talk about teams and games together, without any unnecessary negativity.
What part of that do you not understand? Enough is enough you are either a child or a used to be has been player that has beef with someone on this team. If you are going to talk this much crap please put your name out there.
Mobrigade your post's have been structured and have alot of thought into them. I just seen something about race in your post and just thought negatively about it. But Jolly you need to grow up lol.
NMCC comes back from a 21-0 deficit to beat Potosi 28-27
Beef how about you just mind your own business and stay out of mine. I made my comments because people were making the comments that Dexter had a good chance of upsetting Fredericktown and I was making the point that Dexter did not have the talent to do such a thing. I am not the one on the forums who went around and called people dumb, unintelligent, etc. because other people didn't agree with me. I only used those lines AFTER I was attacked in the first place. So for you to call me out while ignoring the other posters is out of line.
And I apologized for the remarks I made about using the words awful! So again for you to call me out after I apologized is out of line. I apologized for my negative words. I live in Dexter and have lived in Dexter for some time now. I do not hate the team or dislike the team. I am a realist and I could not take the people (in my opinion) were over hyping the team. So when I said Freddy would by 20+ that didn't add to the conversation? Please beef, grow up!
"I think all you are crazy as a bat from Hades. No way Dexter beats Fredricktown. I would say Dexter is awful, but that's giving awful a bad name. Dexter just doesn't have the talent this year. Its not the coaching, its the talent and Dexter has none!!"--Jolly Dump.
This is the comment that started it all. It was rude, insulting, and demeaning and I did call Jolly on it. Now Jolly wants to come on here and pretend that he was the victim and was just responding to others who attacked him first. There's an old saying that those who can't take it shouldn't dish it out!
Preacher I apologized for those comments! And when I apologized for those comments that should have been the end of it. Not for someone to come along a few days after the incident and bring it up again. Am I correct? And saying crazy as a bat out of Hades is nowhere near the things you said! But after we apologized to each other that should have been the end of it.
Yes we both apologized and that was the end of that between us. I was just setting the record straight as to the order of events. In your response to Beef, you said others attacked you first, when the truth is that you fired the first shot.
Preacher believes in burying the hatchet. (In your back).
You're just wrong BIG G. As far as I was concerned, it was over after the apologies. But then Jolly came back and had to rub it in and do his "victory celebration." When Beef called him on it, he tried to claim he was unfairly attacked first. It just wasn't so, so I set the record straight. Read the entire thread and you will see it for yourself. So, BIG G, why would you post something like that against me?
Preach let me say this I don't know u from Adam but I believe your a good man and a man of Christ! My whole life I cared about what people thought about me and tried to defend every move I made! After 27 years of my life I decided to not care anymore about people's opinions and do what I believe is best for me! People are gonna think what they want u can't change that I know I tried! All u can do is trust yourself and the big man upstairs and if u do that you will b just fine!!!!
I view the entire thing differently about Beef's comments, but whatever. I have no idea who BIG G is or why he would say anything like he did, because I don't even know Preacher Man. I know many pastors in the Dexter area and I'm good friends with several of them, but I do not know one who still has boys in high school. I understand the passion and your reasons Preach, even if they are not my priorities.
Thanks Preach for the compliment the other day. I just now read it. I really appreciateit, and I really like getting on here and having good spirited conversations about high school sports!
Just jerkin your chain dude. You old folks gotta chill a little.
Preach no one is questioning your beliefs or faith in your team. Those are to be admired. I would say only "mistake" you made was underestimating a very good Freddy team. Nothing against a dexter team that struggled but that Freddy team us very talented and very well coached
Not sure how speaking generally of demographics got me lumped in the naughty post with Jolly, but nothing personal was intended. I thought my comments were amiable, oh well, for what's its worth, nothing personal meant.
Hey mobrigad, sorry you got associated with the likes of myself.
Lol, no doubt
Everyone loves their team but when one over states their teams ability one can expect negative comments. People are passionate and that's what makes this site work
Because they were already bad enough without throwing a freshman qb to the wolves
99% of players at the freshman level just aren't ready to play varsity football. Couple that with having a weaker program with no way to protect him and your likely to get the kid injured. I don't presume to know if at 14 years old, Stevens was ready or not. I do know that Compton was ready, their QB was not doing the job, and McDowell had already pulled the kid up to JV so he was basically the 2nd string QB. NC at the time just did not have alot of options then. I'm glad NC is 7-3 and getting better. Makes our win over them this year that much sweeter.
Truth, I don't think I underestimated Fredericktown or overestimated Dexter. I said all along they were a big favorite at home. True I hadn't seen them play before last Thursday, but I had followed them and knew how good they were. Gremminger is the best QB we played against all season and the Blackcats have the talent to win districts.
I saw a comment somewhere on this forum about a controversial call in the SV Hayti game and now I can"t find it. Was I dreaming?
I was curious as to what happened as well.
From my perspective, a Hayti player fielded apunt on the 2 or 3 yard line then took a couple of steps backwards into the end zone. The ref blew his whistle and called it a touchback. I thought that was a safety.
BillShakespeare said he was there and was not happy with the call. Though St. Vincent is his team, he is normally unbiased. I'd like his detailed take on what happened.
