Guess Grayson will be off the radar the rest of the regular season discussions. They do not play a team with a winning record the rest of the year until playoffs. I hear they have been struck with the injury bug so it is probably a good thing they get some players players healthy again.

Big games this week between MLK and Stephenson. Best coached team wins it. Coaching I think MLK has upper hand.

Collins Hill the real deal or winning off the legs of their running back? We find out this week. I think P. Rodge is better all around team and will win it.

Parview versus South Gwinnett would have been a really tough game but Grayson knocked the QB for Parview out for regular season it is no match. South Gwinnett will win this game. Parkview was looking like the first or second seed, now they may not make the playoffs.

Where is the AJC state rankings? I have been hearing a lot of local Gwinnett chatter and seeing in the local paper that Grayson is pretty beat up and may be limping into playoffs. Not sounding like #1 ranked team in state to me but still top 5 and a threat to go deep. Time will tell.

Fitzgerald will valdosta Early county bobcats this friday, they will not know what hit, after the hurricane is over then they will be able to access the damage. Thomasville at cook, thomasville better bring their A game, cook is a very good team and getting better as the season rolls on, brooks is gonna have to step up against berrien this week.

Thats why everyone celebrates when East loses. Because of thier fans. I bet it is killing yall over at the “Boneyard” that Hiram is having a better season than you.

Hornets Fan—True. But they do show up when it is in county games. We had more fans than Paulding County at their homecoming and the South game we had a great turnout. We will see how many show up when we play @ Sprayberry. That we be our biggest test to see how many real fans we have.

The next two weeks will determine the Decatur’s playoff possibilities. I think that the defense will contain Abernathey. I am concerned about the Decatur offense. It will be a shootout for epic proportions. Bulldogs on the upset hunt if the Wildcats take them lightly. It is the first Bulldog home game in 4 weeks and 5 if you count the bye. Big hype and equal size venue. Sic’um dogs woof woof. Good luck Guys

After Friday’s humiliation of the Hoyas, East will just about have a playoff spot locked up. I’m sure the list of schools that have made the playoffs every year in AAAAA is pretty short, but we do belong on that list. Those much larger schools like Harrison K Mount and N Cobb are starting to get used to losing to the smallest school in the region year after year. And we like Hiram. Anyone in Paulding is okay with us, especially if they aren’t in AAAAA.

Hoya Chuck…

There you are I was starting to worry about ya!…

Should be a good game, I hope BOTH teams have taken care of the problems they both have had so far. EAST needs to hand out some “PAYBACK” for last year so I am counting on that being the motivating factor as well as this year its at “THE BONEYARD”!!!
So with that said I think this game deserves a COUNTDOWN…

25+ hours and counting…TICK…TICK…TICK…BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!
GO RAIDERS!!!

Honestly brookwood mom nobody thinks yall will lose to the pathetic central gwinnett knights. that would explain why nobody bothers picking the game. the highlight of the knights season was losing to the #2 team in the nation Byrnes (S.C.)

31…

You obviously DO NOT know Paulding County fans…or EAST fans!!! EAST is the ONLY Paulding County school that competes at the AAAAA level. Hiram, South Paulding, North Paulding & Paulding County all play at the AAAA level.

SO it’s great that HIram is having such a year as they are this year…if Hiram gets by Sprayberry this week and baring a total MELTDOWN by Hillgrove against Osborne next weeks game between Hiram & Hillgrove should be something to see as the winner should have the lock on their Region…

Talk to people around the county and most will tell you they pull for BOTH teams as they represent our county so well!!! Many of us were in the same boat…I had a son go to Hiram (and play for them) but my daughter graduated from East Paulding!

So it’s fine to say GO RAIDERS!!! AND HORNETS!!!!!

Ep and Hoya guys – Don’t look now, but when Cherokee beats South Cobb tomorrow night they will be 3-3 in the region, and on a three game winning streak.
Loser of your game better watch out.
Could you imagine???

P ridge has historically been much better later in the season than st the start. remember last year when we started out 0-2 (lost to harrisson and lowndes) and ended up beating top 10 nationally-ranked grayson in semi’s and went to state championship? and in ‘06 we lost 2 early games and also ended up in the championship?

Suwanee 0wnz: Do you honestly believe that collins Hill will probably beat the ridge? If there was a NG-CH game tomorrow instead, who would you predict to win?

Cannon— Ive heard some things about East may be moving down to AAAA because the AD for the county, Culvert, wants everyone in the county in the same region. So the good ole Hiram-East Rivalry will kick back. Oh its been too long.

Here’s a good game – Harrisson vs. valdosta… who can do worse? The only way that either will make it into the second round is through pity points.

So Mr. Carvell, if that is indeed your name. Can you tell us anything about r5-AAAAA 3-way tie breaker?

wolverine fan, etowah came into the boneyard and got they’re undefeated streak ended last year, the series is tied 1-1. just shut up. EP will beat Harrison tomorrow at the boneyard. EP is the most consistent team in 5 AAAAA. They have constantly been near the top of the region. Cherokee is an embarrassment to the region. They need to go back to AAAA and stop pretending. They got embarrassed on television by EP my senior year when EP made the number 2 play on SPORTSCENTER’S TOP 10. McEachern is on a one season streak, they’ll be back to the same losing indians soon. Etowah and EP are the two teams of this region that will always be constantly fighting at the top. The other teams just kind of come and go every now and then. Again, Harrison will lose tomorrow night at the boneyard against East.

I honestly don’t think Peachtree ridge is that bad. They had one bad game, but that doesn’t eliminate them from going deep into the playoffs.

Are you kidding me? They got dominated by Lowndes which lost to NorthSideWR. North Gwinnett, on the other hand, beat the returning champion top ranked team fromalabama and still has a perfect record. PR doesnt stand a chance against North Gwinnett or Collins Hill for that matter.

SERIOUS LOWNDES HATER

YOU CANT COUNT PECHTREE RIDGES LOSS TO LOWNDES BECAUSE THEY PLAY DIRTY. REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR WHEN GRAYSON BEAT THEM? THEY STARTED A HUGE FIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD!!!! LOWNDES NEEDS TO LEARN SOME RESPECT AND IM GLAD THAT NORTHSIDE FINALLY KICKED THEIR BUTTS.

cmon now ptree ridge definately does not suck. they are probably a top 8 team in ga. they have talent as well. they were ranked #7 in the nation in the preseason for a reason people. after they lose to NG in the region 7 finale they can still make a playoff run. nobody likes to play this team in the playoffs. kind of like lowndes or camden. they elevate their game in the playoffs for some reason. the lowndes loss should be written off as a bad game. really just a bad 1st quarter. and North Ga is gonna win state this year.
