The guys have had it drilled into their heads to treat Coffee the same as Hoover(hopefully not with the same results!) and forget everything else. Barring turnovers or penalties like the ones that almost cost us the Valdosta game we should be fine. Go Packers!

Thanks Maxwell. you and Slim Jim might be the only ones outside of Tiger Nation who believes Archer can beat Grayson


October 31st, 2013

@Team Tigerblood – It will depend on which Grayson team comes to play – the team that has great athletes and is playing together or the team that looks like a sandlot team that got together and said “Hey! Let’s play a game!” Then add in a rivalry game and all bets are off! I hope it is as good a game as it has the potential to be. See you there!

Good luck to yore Rams Fred. We will have our hands full down on the coast with Camden in the Bottom Right Hand Corner! Hope my Vikings and your guys both pull out needed wins! We’ve never won in the BRHC, but here’s hoping we change that this week.

I have Archer by 7.

But I’m with you Tigerblood. I believe in Archer. So dynamic. You’ve been to their games, are they as good as I’m seeing on tape?

Everyone will find out soon enough. If not this week then the playoffs. I have no connection to Archer, but I know a great team when I see one.


October 31st, 2013

Really, Milton by 8 over Cherokee, If anyone else knows this, we own Milton and to put it plainly we have one of the best QBS in the state and he is only a junior, Spencer Ashley, 70% comp. 2100 yards passing 18 tds 4 ints. Not to mention 2 back with almost 1,000 yds rushings and a receiver over 1,000 and 8 tds. Gotta do alittle more research before you predict. CHEROKEE BY 7.

@Slim Jim
They are as advertised. Humble/Hard-Working kids that dont care who gets the print/credit. Coach Dyer is a phenomenal Coach with experience coaching under Coach Cronic (East Coweta) and Coach Hunter (Brookwood). Friday nights on New Hope Road are a great place to be! WE ARE ARCHER!!!!!


October 31st, 2013
12:06 pm

I went 2-2 on my first time trying. Since we are off this week, I will again venture into the world of prognosticating.
Brunswick will give Valdosta a game. The 2nd season is on the line. Brunswick, 17-14

Camden wants region to continue their run. Lowndes is in turmoil, but winning. Lowndes, 24-10

Alcovy has it’s eye’s on the region crown. Win out and they get it. Rockdale is trying to get in. Alcovy, 28-17

Cherokee and Milton, both need it. Give me Cherokee, 35-28
Etowah and Walton. Etowah, 30-17
N. Cobb and Marietta, Marietta wants to come to 12 Oaks. Not this year. N.Cobb 45-20

Archer is only a 13 point favorite over Grayson? We are talking about the same Archer, aren’t we? Region winner in a landslide. Top 5 State ranking.


October 31st, 2013
12:34 pm

That Northside/WR over WR by 18 is really funny. NS will probably win it but more lie by 3-7 points, NOT 18. If WR had not gotten beat last week, might agree with it, but they now have something to prove. NS, not so much. Would not even be surprised at a WR upset. Anything can, and has happened in this game.


October 31st, 2013
12:58 pm

Whoa AJC, are you proof-reading your predictions? Or, is it that you simply have a weird sense of humor?

NSWR by 18 over WR and Tucker by 27 over MLK?? Really?? No way are either of these close to being correct.

I’m “Divided” because I have nephews that both play for MLK and Tucker so I always pull for both regardless of who they play until they met for the 1st time last year. So in this game I dont have a favorite, but I do have a thorough understanding of where each team is right now and there is no 27 point delta between these two teams. Did you not mean to say 7? even 17 is a stretch! Both teams have issues on offense, but both can be nightmares for the opposing team on defense. No one in this game scores 27 points. I see the winner with a maximum of 3 TDs while giving up at least1 TD.

As far as my old hometown of Warner Robbins, dont think for one minute that they are going to lie down for NSWR. This is more than an in-town rivalry, this is an across the street – barbershop thrash talkin – rivalry. Both teams play like this is the state final every year. No one scores more than 2 TDs here which should only come on “big” plays that catches the other off guard. This is going to be a defensive battle for the ages.

Check your predictions more clearly in the future please!

Personally, I dig the bold predictions by the AJC. If they think a team is stronger, they are predicting the game with conviction.

How easy would it be for them to predict all the games to be close? History says otherwise. Sure would make for boring predictions and talking points. It would also make them look lazy predictions.

It’s not Las Vegas, and it’s not the NFL.

High School games are as unpredictable as any. Good for you AJC for not being afraid to have a stance. If we, as fans, cry about them that’s our problem.

Nut – Archer is a very young program… Not used to the big stage. So if they win by 1 or 21 they are still in a growing stage.. Very talented, they are.. How they handle the pressure of being a fav is all new to them…

On a side note…. Kinda funny or should I say, my how time flies that it was not too long ago the same was said about Grayson.. They are only like 14 years old & Archer is like 4, I might be a year off or so..

You aren’t kin to the Mountain Man that had the old school bus on the tracks at Atlanta Hwy & Phil Niekro are you??? Best BBQ & fresh tomatoes around!!!

If Carrollton beats Creek by two TD’s I’m taking you with me to Vegas!!!
They have played four times and each time Carrollton’s offense did less than the time before.
This must be a computer analysis based on scores against other teams.
Creek wins by 20+


October 31st, 2013
5:49 pm

@creek rising –Like you confidence. Before I saw this I was thinking Carrollton should be at least a 10 point favorite. You’re right! Other than the Championship game in the Dome, the games haven’t been very competitive. If Carrollton doesn’t play too conservative, I think it’s our year. Send me your Amex # so I can book my flight. (by the way are you giving me 20 points)


October 31st, 2013
6:37 pm

Patriots and Trojans: Let’s play the game! My only concerns tomorrow night are whether I can find a parking space, and if Carrollton will have my Pepsi products in their concession stand! GO PATRIOTS !!! (maybe Vegas in 2014).


October 31st, 2013
6:52 pm

Sorry @PatriotKen — I’m pretty sure you’ve got to go Coke! Hope Y’all show up like you usually do. Grisham Stadium hasn’t really “Rocked’ since the playoffs last year. As you know not everyone travels like WE do. Get here early! Park at the Elementary School or Middle School (same road)!!! Looking forward to kicking your …. It should be fun! But, I am really tired of you people LOL

I guess I am missing something about Archer. Maybe I’m wrong, but it looks like not a single one of their opponents has a record above .500. Grayson looks like their strongest opponent to date, so why the surprise that Archer is only a 13 point favorite? Plenty of teams “look good on tape” when they are playing sub-par opponents. Can anyone name a single team they have beaten who is seriously considered a threat? I can give them some credit for being undefeated but it is not like they are blowing away good teams.

Pepsi products? I think that’s against state law, PatriotKen. Maybe you moved here from elsewhere like thousands of others did, but this is the birthplace of Coca-Cola. Glad to see Carrollton is upholding the law. LOL

48-1-1. That’s the record of this senior class at the Creek. They don’t plan on adding any more digits to those last two slots. Sorry also Patriot Ken, I have to agree with Trojan Fan; Pepsi products should be illegal. :)

Whoa! PatriotKen, you need to go back to New York or Boston where you can root for the Yankees and drink your Pepsi products. You are not helping your team win any football games in Georgia.

Yankees are like hemorrhoids. The good ones come down and go back up. The bad ones come down and stay. If you choose to stay anyhow: don’t drink Pepsi products, and don’t ever tell us how you did things up north.

It’s funny that Houston County beat Jones County 38-0, Houston county might have three in the brackets this year!

11:37 pm

I’ll take South Gwinnett over Brookwood and the 7 points, for sure. SG can SCORE! I’m not sure Brookwood can, especially after their showing getting pushed around at the line of scrimmage by mighty Berkmar.


October 31st, 2013
11:39 pm

@Eagle Dad – I’m with you. I’ll take Grayson and the 13 points as well. Grayson at 4-4 isn’t any powerhouse this year, but I think they’ll be competitive.

@wolfpack nation

Allatoona should be favored over North Paulding for the simple fact that Thr game is at Allatoona. Between the three….Allatoona, South and North……each with 1 loss, only north has lost a game out side the top three(new Manchester), and again only North lost on their home field.

I think that Fox 5 game of the week North Paulding @ Allatoona game turns out to be a great game. Could be one of the largest crowds in these parts all year. I see North jumping out to an early lead then Allatoonas running game will get its footing and it will end up with he team that avoids the big turnover will win.

Pack Nation wins its first Region Title 42-35…..and the rivalry becomes official tonight.


November 1st, 2013
8:16 am

I am with ya Fred with which team shows up as to how competitive Grayson will be tonight. The key for Grayson IMO is ball control (keep the Archer O off the field) and cut down on their own mistakes. If they can do that I forsee a competitive game. If not it could be North Gwinnett all over again.

Sportsnut – Brunswick hasn’t kicked a good extra point this season, let alone a field goal!

Where’s Dosta Dog and our friend 57 Cat????????


November 1st, 2013
9:40 am

I’m here, AVikingFan. I’ve been trying all sorts of combinations to enable Brunswick to score 17 points. They can’t do it without kicking FG and 2 EP’s, which they haven’t done all year. Even WITH a kicking game, the Pirates will not score 17 on Valdosta’s defense. We will score at least 30 on their defense.


November 1st, 2013
9:56 am

Flip a coin on Lowndes vs Camden. Camden has not played well (at all.) To be quite honest (and I love Camden, I was stationed there for 7 years and still own a house in Kingsland) they should have lost last week against Brunswick. They had NO answer to Brunswicks offense. They looked awful. God love their QB but my 13 year old could complete more passes than him. Good wing T QB though. They will need to play mistake free football to beat Lowndes. We shall see. My prediction: Lowndes 17 Camden 14. 4th quarter fied goal finishes Camden.


November 1st, 2013
10:02 am

By the way, and off topic, did you guys know that the Boston Red Soxs’ shortstop, Drew, went to Lowndes? They said something about it during the series. Pretty cool.


November 1st, 2013
11:14 am

@AboutRamTime – Ball control as to holding on to the ball and not putting it on the turf! ;-) I’m sure I’ll have to stand in line to find out what the secret is to the tale of two teams we have seen this year. Lot’s of good athletes with good talent. I don’t get it. I wasn’t expecting 10-0 but I for sure wasn’t expecting 4-4 at this point. I sure hope we can hold the penalties to a minimum tonight.


November 1st, 2013
11:24 am

That OL better do better at pass protection than previous games or Tucker just may blow Mlk out. That rmotional rivalry game with Stephenson is over. Mlk will have to show what they are really made of tonight.


November 1st, 2013
11:50 am

@ Fred We need to control it by holding onto it as well. Going into the season I honestly had them finishing 5-5 simply based on the loss of so much talent and how youthful the O line was going to be. Like you said there is alot of talent in the program and I am confident they will be back on track in 2014. As for tonight Grayson has got to show more discipline (self control) as most of the players on both teams have played with each other in GFL over the years. I believe it’s going to get chippy out there tonight and I just hope our players stay clear of that nonsense.


November 1st, 2013
1:29 pm

That is correct!! All three of the Drew brothers went to Lowndes!! As a matter of fact, J.D. Drew and I were in the same weightlifting class together back in 94!! Those were the good ole days…


November 1st, 2013
1:56 pm

Wrong!! There’s been a mistake on my part!! It was Tim Drew that was in my weightlifting class.Not J.D. Drew. My memory is a little off!!
