Class 2A Bulletin Board Material / Re: 82A in 2018

Bearden looses some Sr numbers, but will still retain some talent. The 8 will think that TB was granted another year @ QB when C. Word gets the keys to the car. He will be a dual threat, that reminds me allot of Tanner Gaines on the run.

I've heard some interesting names, but am not at liberty to say.  Maybe when the dust settles...

You have the right to your opinion.  :)  I agree NLR would be a tough matchup for PA.   But I also believe Greenwood would match up with NLR and Benny pretty evenly.  GW vs Benny or GW vs NLR would be a toss up in my book. 

Agree on both counts.  Greenwood was really, really good this year.  And I think you mentioned it earlier, but as much credit as their offense gets every year, their defense was legit this year.

What to make it really screwed up, in all the other sports, is that the 6A and upper half of the 5A will be called 5A.  The 7A will be called 6A.  The lower half of the current 5A will go to the upper half of the 4A.  For instance, Batesville, Harrison and others will be in the 5A Football conferences, but in other sports (Basketball, Soccer, etc) will be in 4A Districts.




Mind blown.

NLR has both of those in spades.  Everything they do on offense plays to PA's weaknesses.  They have a power run game that controls the ball and keeps the other offense off the field.  They are athletic enough at LB and in the secondary to cover PA's receivers, are big and strong up front which would undoubtedly would lead to sacks and disruption of the passing game.  PA would score, but I don't know if they would be able to score enough with limited possessions.  NLR is a much better version of the McClellan team we saw in the finals.

The 2010 game was actually a 3A game (Colts in 3A here).   I was at it.  An almost miserable game to attend weather wise.  Not wet, but 40 degrees and the wind blowing 20 mph plus the whole night.  Advantage to the running team that night which was RC. 

They used their big back most of the night and bruised it down the field. Had been more of a speed/big play team the entire year up until that game.

They were clearly the better team in that game.

Reads like a close game.

Depth matters during a long season.  If the kids are conditioned, which all of these top tier teams are, then depth means nothing.  Unless a kid gets hurt.  On a one game match-up, depth is not important.....size and speed are.  Period.

Well, you heard wrong.
Not the last time you'll be wrong, I'm sure.

Maybe it was hearsay, however, you being able to still fit in your letter jacket is a KNOWN lie!

Yup.  They look good against who they play against.  The problem is their competition ain't that great on a statewide basis when you get past Pine Bluff.  Other than that I don't think they'd beat Bentonville or NLR.  I do think they'd match up with NLR better because NLR didn't play against a spread team like Greenwood all year.   Just as Greenwood didn't play against anything similar to NLR this year.   

I don't hold the 7a teams in higer regard just bacause they are in 7a.  I give them more because they are just better more talented teams (for the most part) when compared to the top teams in 6a.

You obviously haven't seen much live football.  Have you seen West Memphis or Eldo play in person?  What about Texarkana or BennyWest?  I doubt you did.  You're a NLR homer who sat at WMS and watched a couple of games. Have you looked at the schedule of NLR?  Not super solid!  What about the schedules of Bentonville, Pine Bluff or Greenwood.  Greenwood has played or scrimmaged everyone in the top tier of 7a. Year in and year out.  Go look at the records.    NLR and Benny would both struggle against Greenwood's defense.  And there is no doubt that Greenwood could put up points on either team.   Pine Bluff, ElDo, WestMemphis could all hang with Benny and NLR.  Heck, I believe PA, Arkadoo and Warren could give them a great game.  This I do know.  The people that know football, and that know the 7A inside and out, know that neither Benny or NLR looked dominant in that final game.
