Alabama’s defense isn’t that great..

Alabama isn’t so great after all, huh?    — The Texas A&M Aggies make you all  so called College Football know it all’s think twice about that twice.   —  The Crimson Tide are not  great, but they’re real good.  They got outplayed by a better football team.   They had some mistakes.     And that defense that some say could go up against an NFL team?   Yeah, not anymore.   Let’s get real, this is College Football here.  The Best Collegiate football team would get slaughtered by the best NFL Team, heck maybe even the worst pro team.     The best College team only has a handful of  potential draftees, that’s it.     There have been only few rosters in College Football history that have a legit  future first round NFL Draftee roster.

–Not to mention the speed’s of  the two game’s are different, that’s what would get them more than anything.

— Ultimately though, the reason why a match-up like this in the best College Team vs. an NFL team wouldn’t ever happen is because believe it or not, but their are people that think the best College team could win.   If this were to happen, we wouldn’t ever hear the end of it.

But let’s get real here, it wouldn’t really happen.    College Football is overrated compared to that of  the rough and tough steel defenses that play in the National Football League.        You all remember the Baylor/West Virginia game, correct?

Geno Smith had seven touchdown passes in that game.. let me just say that none of  the NFL’s elite quarterbacks would ever throw for that many in ONE GAME.    — Not Drew Brees.  Nope, not Peyton Manning.  Not Aaron Rodgers.  — Not even Tom Brady.   That says a lot.   Then again, not really.

HALTOM CITY:      Birdville showed they can respond in delicate game situations on Thursday night, defeating the Panthers. 

Birdville  committed 20 turnovers in Thursday night’s  North East Lions Club Tournament game (Round one) vs. Paschall High.     — Despite an at times, sloppy offense, the Hawks got some big scores when it counted the most, and their defense, according to Coach (Jeff) Fitch is what helped them win this game, more than anything.  “Our defense helped make our offense”  Fitch said.

— There was a point in the game where  neither team could get a score, and that point came in the fourth-quarter.     — All the sudden, almost out of  no where, the Hawks started hitting some shots.   It started with Crane, and then Kendall Johnson.      That’s what put the game away for Birdville (2-3), who beat the Paschall Panthers (1-3) 45-41 on Thursday night.       And it’s situations like this, that will help guide this team through the season.     They  needed  to prove they could respond, and they did.   It’s games like the one vs. Denton Guyer, and Tuesday night’s heart-breaking last-second loss to Fossil Ridge that show they can respond.    — And as long as they can do that, they should be just fine.             Birdville will play Haltom for tomorrow night’s round two tournament game at the Thomas Coliseum.

Wizards win *yawn*

The Washington Wizards bought their first win of the season tonight.   By doing this, they avoid worst start to a season in franchise history.     — With the win, they are now 1-13.    If this were the NFL,  and if they were the league’s worst team at 1-13, ouch is all I can say.   — Still, though even in the NBA’s  long 82 lingering game season, 1-13 isn’t  a pretty sight.   They still have plenty of basketball to play.    This isn’t the NFL, and they have a chance.   There are 69 games left.   — I’m not saying the Wizards are going to win these final 69 games, but.. I’m just saying in the NFL a 1-13 team only has two games, and would likely finish either 1-15, or 2-14, yeah, or something like that.    Anyway, the bottom line here is that the Wizards got the win.      — But there’s just one more thing… why am I writing about the Wizards now?    …. Good self purposed question, I can’t figure out why.

Hawks lose close game to Fossil Ridge

Birdville vs. Fossil Ridge: 

Written by Site Editor Thomas Brunt: 

HALTOM CITY:   Coach Jeff Fitch said it wasn’t a must win game.    His team didn’t play like it was one either.  — It was only their fourth game of  the new season.      They we’re coming off a closely contested battle from their last-game in which they only lost by seven to a really good team.  “Every time you play an athletic team, it helps you” said Coach Fitch before the game.          —  It helped them out somewhat, but the Hawks defensive game showed up more than their offense,  and this, and  16 turnovers isn’t going to help you out much.     Though, it should be noted the Hawks only had three-second half turnovers, as oppose to 13 first-half  turnovers.   Sophomore guard Andrew Sorrells  led the team in something he probably didn’t want to, as he  had 4 turnovers.

— However, despite these turnovers, the Hawks were in it the entire game, as the two team’s  struggled to get ahead with a convincing lead at any-point.    But turnovers, like they had earlier in the game, haunted the Hawks, as they turned it over on a crucial possession in the final seconds.      The Panthers, much to the Hawks misfortunes capitalized on the turnover, going the other way and scoring the game-winner with nine seconds left in the game.      — Birdville got the ball down the court and was able to get one last-shot at it, and it was a nice look, to, however it didn’t go in, as the buzzer sounded, the Panthers squeezed on past the Hawks in this one, 32-30.   “When you hold someone to 32 points, you’re supposed to win” Coach Fitch said.   “We missed a lot of makeable shots”  he added.      — While this one wasn’t a must win, it can be looked up as a game they could have won, but they can only move on and continue to improve and play basketball, as there is 28 games remaining, and the Hawks have shown some moments of  greatness so far this season, even at 1-3.

Birdville hosts a tournament at the  Willy G. Thomas Coliseum on Thursday (11/29-Saturday (12-1).

COLUMN: Notre Dame hasn’t changed the land of College Football at all..

Now that Notre Dame has gone undefeated and has received their first #1 overall ranking in a long-time, everyone is thinking that the dominoes have fallen, and with a major impact, that’s shouldn’t be the real case here.    You think one team out of the top 25 BCS Standings/Pols is going to change that much?

— Think again.   Smell the coffee, and wake up.    If I re-call, currently the number two ranked team in the country is  Alabama?

— Correct?    They’re an SEC  School, correct?   Georgia?  Well as of right now, they’re ranked number 3, SEC School, check.      Missing anyone here?  Yep, Florida #4.   Is that all now?   Nope,  LSU, and than Texas A&M comes in at #9 (of course with Johnny Football).     That’s five SEC School’s.    When you stack competition that has consistently wound up on top against a recent struggling school who must I remind all you  people big on ND barley beat a sloppy Pittsburgh Panthers football team in triple overtime.

Now correct me If I’m wrong, but… I’m pretty sure an SEC School would DEMOLISH Pit.    Notre Dame didn’t do that.  They squeaked by.   This is exactly why any SEC school would knock them off.    This is also exactly why not that much hasn’t changed in the land of  College Football, because SEC team’s like they have been in year’s past, are once again at it in with a chance to go to the BCS National Championship game against an unlikely 12-0 fluke of  a team in the Fighting Irish.

 

COLUMN: Cowboys are… a trashy good team?….

The Dallas Cowboys may be bad, but the Philadelphia Eagles are just plain garbage.   — And a lot of  Eagles fans are pointing their fingers at  Eagles head-coach, Andy Reid.   — Whether or not this is the right thing to do, I  can’t personally speak for  Eagles’ fans.   — Now, as I was saying,  both team’s aren’t that great, in fact at times the Cowboys have played like garbage, but not the entire season, at least.    Philadelphia’s 3-8 record can speak fore

itself, as they’ve basically played like trash all season long.     — That’s why Andy Reid’s head-coaching job is on life-support right now.

Say what you will about Garrett’s own failures and missadeventures as the Cowboys have had another thrusrsating season, but it’s been far from the  meltdown in the City of Brotherly Love.    — Than again… at times… the Cowboys seem to look worse than they really are, or are they really this bad?     I’m not sure.    I’m confused.  Can’t decide.     There’s one way you can say for sure about this team.   Call them a roller-coaster ride.   The Cowboys are going to finish 8-8.   — You know it, stop denying it.   It’s the truth.     Dallas hasn’t  proved that they can do any-better.   Their best isn’t good enough.    Even when they knock off the defending World-Champions in the Meadowlands in week one in impressive fashion, who do they think they’re fooling?    — Apparently, everyone.     Well, fast-forward to week 13 and that’s not exactly the case anymore.    —  The Cowboys are as good as being capable of  playing like garbage vs. the Eagles.   —  Than… technically… they’re aren’t really good.      Not at times.   But, they are capable of  being a good team.   It’s just not their true indentity.      You know the Cowboys, win or lose, they’ve got a strong fan-base, that stays true to the team a lot of the time.      But some fans, much like the team, are a roller coaster ride.    — And they wouldn’t want it any other way.
