AA blog: What we learned Friday

Here’s what we learned Friday in Class AA:

  • No shockers occurred in the top 10 Friday, with the eight teams that played going 8-0. The closest game was between the No. 10 Vidalia Indians and Bacon County, though the Indians pitched a shutout, winning 14-0. No. 1 Lamar County squared off against the only other team with an undefeated 1-AA record, Bleckley County, but coasted to a 44-7 win to all but take the region for a third year in a row.

    Will GAC win it all?

  • So much for a rivalry. The No. 8 Bowdon Red Devils made easy work of Bremen at home, winning 48-22. Bremen had a 5-2 edge in the series since 2005 heading into the game and prevented Bowdon from completing an undefeated regular season in 2008. Now, the Red Devils (9-0, 7-0 5-AA) are just one win away from their first 10-0 season since 1995 and their first region title since 2005. However, the title won’t come easy – after a bye they’ll play the Heard County Braves, who moved to 6-0 in the region after their 43-0 win over Temple. The Braves play the Spencer Greenwave Owls next week, who are a win away from their first winning season since 1977.
  • In 3-AA, the Dublin Fighting Irish are officially back on track. They slipped to 2-8 last year for their first losing season since 2003. But this year they’re 6-2 overall and 4-0 in the region after their 42-14 win over Harlem. They face Laney (6-2, 4-0) next week for what will essentially be the region championship. All other teams in the region have at least two losses.

Good to see Calhoun has legit competition this year. GAC looks as good as anyone in AA but if Lovett gets their QB back the GAC/Lovett game at the end of the season will be one to watch. The winner of that one wins it all.

Calhoun, GAC, and Lovett would all just be “next” to the steam roller soon-to-be State Champions Lamar County Trojans.

GAC averages 51.2 pts/game, Lamar County 42.6. On defense, GAC allows 10.6 pts/game, Lamar County 11.2 pts/game. Lamar County would walk home with the heads down

Please the best team on the same side as GAC or Lovett in the playoff brackets are the Brooks County Trojans We are the team to Beat and if you don’t believe it me then just watch. That game from last yr against Calhoun was a major fluke we are playing for a purpose BC3 this title is for our fallen Trojans lost July 9, 2013. So I Guess its gonna be Lamar County Going against Brook County In the Dome For The State Championship……………… Now @Bwolves go play foolsball cause that basically what your Talking FOOLSBALL not Football………

Yea we can give all of our opinions about our teams but it will come down to who makes the least amount of mistakes because I know those Trojans will be well coached and if everyone stay healthy I am betting on the Trojan horses from Lamar county I watch theses young men practice almost every Day those coach in practice like it is a game situation. When you have coaches that are perfectionist these guys are very detailed about every play how it should be blocked and so on and so forth. We are blessed to have players and coaches like this”we are going in and going hard” go Trojans!

Calhoun in dome last 5 years this year will be 6 in a row. The way they are playing there is no one in AA can beat them. Example was when Brooks brought a hammer to Calhoun last year for the playoffs and ended up getting it hammered on their head. Shame on the coach for letting the players display that hammer. Understand winning is a tradition at Calhoun not just everyone once in a while. Like Benedictine where have you been for the last five years.? Not in the dome like Calhoun

You can reward these teams for not losing, but after GAC or Lovett loses, you would be nuts to not have Calhoun #2, and Lamar is not going to beat the Jackets either, more like last year. WW has nothing to offer.

Benedictine will not make it past Calhoun to see Lamar again. The winner of the semis between Calhoun and Lamar will take the championship. Right side bracket as a whole is terribly weak. The coin toss will determine this years state championship. If Calhoun goes to Lamar, results will be different than 2012

You can’t take nothing from none of the teams in the top 10or 11 it will be a tough journey for the Trojans from Lamar once the playoffs starts but we will come out on top

I think all yall sleep because these tigers are ready to go and i dont see anybody stoping them. We played jefferson and rabun which where two good teams. We blew the brakes off both of them and they both went with a long ride home. I see the same for the playoffs!!!!!
