Camden’s biggest competition was the yellow flag. Every single time they got a play it got called back. They must have had 150 yards in penalties. Very sloppy playing on their part and not taking advantage of opportunities. It almost bit them in the bottom. Coffee has a good team this year. I think they will get a playoff spot. They, unlike Camden, took advantage of the opportunities they had.

The Cats are doing enough to win. They are not polished, yet. By seasons end, they will be ready to go. Although they are playing banged up, they are doing what it takes to come away with the W. Last week we played without some key people and they are on the mend. Kirkland is slowly getting his feet back under him following ankle injury. He played well but was limited.

Williams was his usual self and came up big on the TD pass from the back up Qb, Khaleel Rogers, who was playing due to a sprained thumb on the throwing hand of starter “Mays” Neely. All in all, it was a good win. Rockdale had a couple good plays but the Cats D was up to the challenge and did not allow them to smell the endzone. We still have work to do but we are getting there.

We may not be who we were but we are who we are, Lovejoy Wildcats

Tift played us tough tonight, but in the end they had 167 total yards. Spin the game how you want Tift fans, but good teams find a way to win. Next week ya’ll will be 1-2 in the region.

Congratulations to Camden. A little better game than you expected huh?

That was a helluva game at Coffee tonight. Coffee had it’s share of penalties also. Including a 25 yard penalty after a return to the Camden 47. Coffee was also playing with out 5 starters. Any of six teams in Region 1 can still win a playoff spot. What a great crowd on both sides. The Coffee coaches have made good decisions late in the last two games that ultimately contributed to the losses. Very ironic.

I look forward to the Tift/Camden and the Valdosta /Lowndes games next week. Coffee has to win out to guarantee a playoff slot But I will be rooting for Tift and Valdosta next week. (And Coffee better no let down against Brunswick the way we did against Mundys Mill.) Every little bit will help.

And you know what? It would not be a shocker for Tift to beat Camden next week. And Valdosta should take lowndes. And Coffee had better not relax against Brunswick.

Let’s play some football!

Ok ppl Tifton played hard but I don’t see them beating Camden or Valdosta and they still may not make the playoffs. The score looks like a close game but our defense dominated Tift all night we just didn’t finish the deal on offense and I know some Tift fans will feel like I am disrespecting them and that’s not the case but for the ones who were at the game know we left 21 to 28 points on the field easily and they only had one drive all night!!! We had the ball the whole game and Tift only had 2 first downs the whole second half. We lived on their side of the field just about the whole second half but we just played sloppy and made mistakes that we shouldn’t be making at this point in the season. We did everything u need to do to loose last night with Interception, fumble, penalties, missed open TD passes, and at least 3 trips in the red zone with nothing to show for it including fumbling on the 1 yrd line and fumbling on the 18 yd line and going for it on 4th and goal at the 9 yd line. As a matter of fact did Tift cross the 50 yrd line in the second half cause I don’t think they did but I could be wrong

The Grove played a little sluggish in the second half. We have to play complete games. I understand that when you hold a team to 15 total yards in a half you tend let up a bit, but that is not what good teams do. Got the win though.

Well…here’s ya some gospel about the Colquitt/Tift extravaganza last night. The Blue Devil defense played tough and extemely opportunistic. They earned their McDonald’s Big Mac Friday evening. The Tift offense weren’t anything to write home about. They did have a decent drive in the 1st half…but must have stayed in the locker room at break. Of course, I suppose a lot of their “problems” could be attributed to the Blackhats…but…no need to rub salt in the wound.

The Packer defense played outstanding once again. They gave up one score. They solved Tift’s Tebowesque QB after the initial drive and they banged on the Devils all night long. And when the chips were all in…the Blackhats took the pot. Durn Good Hawgs !!!!!

The Colquitt County offense run up and down the field…but they just didn’t close the deal when they had the opportunities. They had TWO costly fumbles…one was returned 82 yards for a Tift TD. The other was fumbled inside the Tift one yard line. They had a tipped pass for an interception and costly penalties to stall drives. Obviously, this type of play usually doesn’t win you ballgames. But the Packer defense saved their bacon last night. We gotta have a bit better focus on offense ifin we plan on climbing the mountain this year.

But a win is a win…and it beats the heck out of a loss. So go you Hairy Hawgs…and do whatcha ya gotta do…In Living Color. Brunswick in two weeks. I never liked them Pirates. NEVER !!!!

Despite dominating on defense, the Pack was fortunate to get the win. It was intense, with numerous sideline warnings to both coaching staffs. The only reason it was even close, however, were injuries to BOTH of Colquitt’s kickers–causing the Pack to go for 4th downs when normally the FG Unit would have added chip-shot 3’s. Our starting kicker sustained what is probably a season-ending knee injury and our back-up also injured his leg. Uncalled-for penalties killed Tift as they were even sloppier than the Moultrie team last night. The Pack clearly had a hangover from last week’s drubbing of Lowndes. CC has a bye next week before facing Brunswick….

@waynester – I was talking with Ashley H. last night about reclaiming some eligibility and suiting up ifin we needed him to kick…and he said…

“Just shut up Rufus. I like it fine right here in the stands.”

I don’t think he’s gonna do it…(Smile).

@ CoffeeC100 = Sorry but during championship runs you most of the time only have just one game where u do everything to loose but don’t. So unfortunately for the rest of the of the region this game will keep us on our toes and avoid bad mistakes in the redzones. But the game with Camden seemed to be worth the admission and sorry about the outcome but your guys fought till the end and were right their so you have to be proud of that at least. Good luck the rest of the way

Thanks WildHawg – Just foolin’ with ya. Yeah. Last nights game was a doozie. Maybe it will give the young men the confidence to know they can play with anyone. It was one of those games that neither team lost on the field. And Coffee was down five starters due to misbehaving in the Tift game.

The Blue devils may be pretty good. But they play below he belt and the officials allowed them to. And it seems the coach was proud of it.

The officials for the Tift/Coffee game were from Tift County. I did not think the GHSA allowed that.

@ CoffeeC100 = Yeah they do play a dirty. I understand the coach trying to instill toughness but to be dirty is not cool. I heard the kicker might have an ACL tear but right now that’s just a rumor. I hope not cause his health is bigger than football. If its true then that will be the first time I have heard of a kicker kicking a field goal and end up with a season ending injury unless he was targeted. I cant say he was but now a days teams do anything to get a edge. But cheap shots do hurt. Hey I think I read that one of your players was hurt and if so me and my family send our blessings to the Coffee nation and his fam.

@WildHawg2012 – Yeah we had an outstanding sophomore linebacker carted off in an ambulance. From the best I’ve heard he was kicked in the throat by accident and couldn’t breath. Scary but he was discharged Early Saturday morning and should play this Friday. Thanks for the good thoughts.

@ RobFromNorcross == I missed you earlier but I agree on Norcross. They are very much alive and kicking. Playoffs yes. How far ? Then again, that is true for everyone. AAAAAA is anybody’s. Who ever wants it the most will get it this year. Talent level not up to last years. Although there is still a ton of it out there. Should be interesting.
