Lovejoy and Tucker will be a track meet of a football game. I think Tucker prevails because they have been consistently in this type of big game atmosphere. Looking forward to watching it on TV tonight.

Good luck to all the teams playing this weekend and hoping for no serious injuries.

See you tomorrow night at the Dome!!

Posted this in the comments board in the game preview article but I’m moving it over here just to stir the pot as the conversation continues…

Compared some of what I’ve seen from both teams, some stats which can be a little misleading (Tucker’s D, for instance during the regular season, gave up most of its points in the second half, long after the starters had taken off their pads; most of Northside’s offense came on ONE play). Biggest difference, as we have seen over the years consistently. Lovejoy has fine team; Tucker has a PROGRAM. On my radar screen, Tucker looks like a 24-0 or 24-7 winner. Special teams play and Tucker’s propensity for shooting themselves in the foot with stupid penalties (how many false starts against Northside? 7?) could make it closer. Lovejoy may stop one or two of Tucker’s backs… Northside shut down Minor and Rivers, Landry ate them up… but they’ll have their hands full chasing all four. Hard to see where Lovejoy’s offense will put points on the board.

So, there you go… Let the chest beating continue. Good luck to both teams; it’s an achievement to get to the Dome. Hoping for no injuries. We want to see both sides at their best.

Lovejoy 21 Tucker 7 You heard it here first! Lovejoy will shut them down just like Northside did. There offense only scored off of a fumble at the 30 yard line. They never had a sustained drive against Northside. I predict Tucker will not score against LJ!

@ eagle1 Did you even watch last week’s game? Or has your bias made you color blind to the point that you got the two teams mixed up. Both offenses had their problems at different times against superior defenses. I saw a game between two teams that were fairly evenly matched; yes, a bad break cost Northside the victory but that happens. Nothing I’ve seen convinces me that Lovejoy plays at the same level as either Northside or Tucker.

@HSballfan. I agree with much of what you said. The one thing that worries me though is Lovejoys special teams play they have been outstanding all year.I hope the game does not come down to Tucker needing to make a field goal or an extra point for the win. I believe in the end Tucker has too many weapons on offense. Lets not forget the quarterback who is also an outstanding runner. and Tuckers defense is as good as any in the state.

Well at least Grayson talking smack in a rap to Walton will not get students shot. If I were Grayson I would be careful which schools you DIS in your rap videos. They are funny and cute but I am sure there are some punks that will get very angry over your songs.

can’t belive all these tucker fans that think they can actually win. stop kidding yourselves, it’s embarassing.

@rwdekalb I share your concerns. If Lovejoy’s D is as good as advertised and Tucker struggles for points, they cannot afford half a dozen false start penalties, fumbles or special teams screw-ups. When the playoff brackets were released, the one opponent I feared the most was Flowery Branch, because of Coker. If you look at the teams that have given Tucker the most trouble over the years, they were the ones with strong QB’s… Creekside with Berry, Ivory of Northside, the tall kid at Statesboro. Lovejoy does not have that; their defense will have to win it for them.

@A person SMART enough to know — They did not “DIS” Walton at all. Is was all about Grayson getting to the DOME and making it our year. There was not trashtalking or if you even think there was it was so mild. The Brookwood Where You At had more trashtalk but they are Grayson’s region rival. You need to compare the videos

If I was a Grayson football player, I would track down the skinny punks making the stupid videos and stick them in a trash can along with their videos. Video punks, you’re making Grayson look like a pack of street thugs with no CLASS. Plus, you don’t want to give your opponent anything to build on when getting ready to play you. Video punks…you’re just plain stupid.

It will definitely get a little tougher. They’re ranked in the top 25 in nation in some polls, but if they played in AAAAA week in and out they wouldn’t be the power they are

They love the POP WARNER LEAGUE. You saw the pride of the principle at half time. Win or lose, them boys need to move up to prove to me that they’re a real dominant football team.

I thought that Calhoun intercepted the ball earlier but then Buford had it at the 20 on the next play. The announcers said that there were 2 personal fouls on the play. Calhoun still would have had the ball if that was the case.
