… and if the Scarecrow had a brain, he could have been King of Oz! If Creek could have tackled a bit better tonight, the score could have been 69-7. Newnan wasn’t going to beat Creek any/no way!

Newnan had a pretty good offense, but it depended heavily on the big play. Losing by 27 points makes it hard to say what you could have done. I do hope the Cougars win their region.

I see that my prediction earlier today came true. The Chiefs of McIntosh put a whippin’ on Alexander, 21 to 7. They played in Douglasville. I have said that this McIntosh team can be a sleeper this year. MHS went 5 and 5 last season, and the group of seniors that Big Mac has this year is talented and it has been a good, solid group since the freshman year when it beat up on Starr’s Mill.

I noticed Sandy Creek was missing some key players on defense and the players that they had in the was very aggressive and over persuing the play. Also I see the defensive backs making some improvement. Once SC get their pass rush mistakes corrected they will be unbeatable.

Go Trojans!

Carrollton 63, Chapel Hill 0. One of the worst high school football teams I have ever seen.
Could have been 100-0 if we wouldn’t have put in the JV for the entire 2nd half.

Calhoun coming up this week. That should be a better game!

Go Trojans!

On Newnan’s long TD runs, Sandy Creek had their two best linemen on the bench nursing injuries from last week. If we stayed with the first team QB we would have had a running clock in the third quarter, but coach took his foot off the gas pedal because the back up needed reps, hence the tipped pass pick six and what would have been a 35 point lead became a 21 point lead. That stated, Newnan is a much improved team from last season and they shouldn’t have a problem winning their region.

Cougars had a chance Creek Rising you talk about your defensive was on the bench. We had a 6′8′ receiver be covered by a 4′10′ man but only threw to him 3 times so on if we had a real offensive coordinator an a defensive coordinator that want let his player play off the receivers 10 yards we might would of had a better chance. But we will look good for the rest of the season.

Sandy Creek was going to beat Newnan. Newnan did not help themselves by dropping 7 passes, and missing 8000 tackles. Sandy Creek is a very talented and well coached team and deserve every bit of recognition that they are receiving. I believe Newnan will win their region simply because of offensive skilled positions and Sandy Creek will win the state for their school.

@Creek Rising, @FayettecountyFan, and @PatriotKen. Y’all seem a little shook! Are you guys having trouble in paridise over their? I was at the game against Plant and could tell that y’all graduated some key players off of last years team. I think Sandy Creek is still very good but definitely too a step back to the rest of the pack in class AAAA. GO TROJANS!!!!

Carrollton will se exactly how far we’ve come this week against Calhoun. Hopefylly we can get all of our players back on the field by then as we had 6 starters out against Oxford and 3 more against Chapel Hill. So Sandy Creek, don’t go giving yourselves that trophy just yet. its a long season with a lot of games to be played.

Go Trojans! Good luck against Calhoun, Chapel Hill’s program has been destroyed by the Douglas County School board feeble attempt to elevate Douglas County and New Chester. The Trojans looked great and you should be proud of your kids, however your system is not busing your talent away from your school. Chapel Hill’s talent pool has been disrespected and sent to the schools mentioned above. Those kids who took that beating Friday night are heroes, please cut them some slack. Politics played a heavy hand in their play.

@The Southside High School Observer, What are you smoking? McIntosh is NOT a good team. They are average at best. You just went up against a better team that had a clueless coach!

Alexander has a great group but the coaching is horrible, just horrible.
