  1. How can you expect to win a game when you allow the opposing team QB to throw for 500+ yards? It's time for a manhood check!
  2. One would expect an athlete to improve over 8 years of specialized weight training and working with specialist prior to the NFL Draft.
  3. Coach Grier at Sherwood High School just stepped down.
  4. hahahaha, all I have are bad memories, December 4, 2014! I wish I were that slow!
  5. Anything under 4.8 is amazing speed, you will be moving at a faster pace than everyone else on the field with the exception of that freak D1 athlete but that's why they are that freak D1 athlete in the first place. All college coaches know that hand times are not accurate which is why they want your kid at their camp so they can run their own times. One of the articles I linked in my earlier post addresses the issue of college coaches inflating times, college coaches and camps are part of the inflated times problem. As for whether not to promote the times, that is an individual choice. I would advise attending a football camp with electronic timing like Nike-The Opening. They are hand timed on the start and laser timed on the finish so even then, there is human error involved but it is done the same as the NFL combines. I personally promote my 40 time as 4.12 because I am a unicorn.
  6. Just to add more fire to this ridiculous speed argument, let's take Tavon Austin as an example. I think everybody on this board will agree that Tavon had elite football speed. He was the fastest kid on the field and it showed, head and shoulders above the rest. After high school, Tavon is put into a D1 college football program with the best personal trainers and diet an elite athlete can get. Surely everyone on this board will agree that Tavon will be stronger/faster in college than in high school with all of those amenities at his disposal. After college, Tavon goes to Florida to be trained by a world renowned speed trainer whose entire job depends on getting NFL prospects ready for the NFL combine. After many months of training, Tavon will be able to produce the fastest 40 time possible that he has ever been able to produce, he is at his peak on combine day. Tavon runs a 4.34 NFL combine which is ELITE SPEED! This is many years removed from high school when he is bigger/faster/stronger and professionally trained. Logically one could conclude that Tavon was not running a 4.34 in high school and was probably not running a 4.4 or 4.5. I am not saying he was slow, what I am saying is too many kids have their times inflated so much that when we truly get a kid with a laser timed 4.6-4.7, he is considered slow by key board jockeys which is ridiculous. That kid will probably be the fastest kid on the field with 4.6-4.7 speed. Also, be careful when using 100 meter times, they are not a good indicator of 40 yard dash times. Here is a great article about all of those high school kids who could run a 4.4 in high school but not prior to the NFL draft which flies in the face of logic considering these guys are at their peak before the combine. https://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2013/3/1/4038740/2013-nfl-combine-high-school-40-yard-dash-times Here is another article about high school speed on the football field. This one may be hard for unicorn hunters to read. https://www.outkickthecoverage.com/reality-you-cant-run-a-sub-50-forty-022414/
  7. 4.2 speed is unicorn speed. It doesn’t exist except for in people’s imaginations. Show me a coach with a stopwatch and a handful of kids with 4.4 sub times and I’ll show you a coach that doesn’t know how to time the 40. The 40 time is the most over-used/inflated stat out there. There are articles out there about 4.4 high school kids who are slower at the NFL combine. Why, because they have unicorn times!
  8. Even though that call is never made, that one was easy to call. OL-man wrapped both arms around his RB and dragged him 5 yards to the endzone. 2 different guys threw the flag on that call that hardly never gets called. It's one thing when there is a scrum but that dude single handily carried him to the endzone. That guy should star in an Allstate Commercial...Your in good hands with Allstate..hahahaha
  9. You can't block below the waist any player who starts the play outside of the box. The kid who made the illegal low block was lined up outside the box and the kid he blocked started the play outside the box so neither is allowed to make a block below the waist. The box typically includes OL and DL at the snap of the ball. Those guys can block below the waist as long as they are blocking as an individual and don't have help from a teammate hitting high, that is a chop block. Chopblock is the wrong word usage for this penalty. LB's starting the play on the second level cannot be blocked below the waist. Offensive backs and split out receivers cannot block below the waist.
  10. I also noticed Linganore running most plays to the left side, they were definitely targeting that side with a lot of success on their productive drives. I wish I had the stats for Butler, specifically each run, which side and how many yards. I bet the majority were left.
  11. Here is an interesting stat showing how the momentum shifted to Linganore. Starting with the Linganore TD at the end of the 2nd quarter, Linganore had 350 yards of offense. They only had 17 yards of offense before that 1st scoring drive. Over the same time period that Linganore had 350 yards of offense, MM had 201 yards of offense. If I am a returning MM player, I am on the field learning how to kick extra points. If MM wants to win next year, they have to be able to kick extra points. Relying on 2 point conversions every-time is way too risky at the end of the season against the type of teams that make it that far into the playoffs. I didn't pay close enough attention to player numbers for MM? How many of their linemen play both ways. I ask because they were getting gashed on numerous drives.
  12. I was sitting about 15 feet away from the radio crew but I could not hear what they were saying but I did notice they seemed to be more animated with their body language. I just figured it was due to the TD as the crowd was going nuts celebrating. I did not notice 12 men on the field. What I noticed was what looked like 5 men in the backfield and that is what I though the flag was thrown for. When they waved it off, I just figured they they determined one of the guys was close enough to the LOS. I didn't find out about the 12th man until I was home on my couch enjoying an adult beverage. The 12th man on the field was not obvious to those of us in the crowd and I had 2 high school coaches from other teams standing right behind me. Both also though the flag was for 5 men in the backfield. One of the coaches was there to scout both teams and the other coach was from a school in the Baltimore region, I can't remember the name of the school but it was one of those charter type schools.
  13. You are correct, I mistakenly used accumulated points instead of Point Average.
  14. River Hill would have been a 6 seed.
  15. I agree! However, this ridiculous playoff format had 3 of the top 4 2A teams knock each other out in the 1st and 2nd rounds. There will be upsets in a 1-16 format but you won't have 3 of the 4 top 2A teams meeting each other in the 1st and 2nd round. It is bad having an Oakdale and Walkersville team sitting home in round 3 while a team like Glenelg makes it through. Glenelg would have lost to both teams and in a 1-16 format, Glenelg would have faced Damascus in the 1st round and been knocked out early as they should have been. Call me crazy but I want the best teams in round 3 and 4, not the Glenelg's of the world!
