The 2 6AA going to be Tough

Earle got added for Football this cycle.  With Hazen it got to be a slobber knocker.

Earle returns 9 on defense & 8 on offense plus we will unleash a  250lb rb.
Plenty of speed and depth on the lines. I doubt Hazen is going to blow through Earle

Saw a Lonoke County newspaper article that covered recent graduations.  Lonoke graduated 138 while Carlisle graduated 44.  Don't see a benefit for either team when they play opening weekend.

I agree.  As much as I want this old rivalry to thrive, the fact of the matter is that Carlisle is on the short end of the stick.  Lonoke has over three times as many kids in each class, 10-12, which means they have more depth, more athletes, etc. 

I know they draw lots of money for the game and I know that Coach likes to play tougher opponents, but with this being the first game of the year, it can really set the tone for the rest of the season.  I'm not saying they need to play a complete cupcake, but at least someone that they can more closely match up with and have a decent chance at winning.

At least for one cycle anyway. Kids have been working really hard for coach Knowlton. I figure it's gonna take every ounce of that hard work.

Yes,  Carlisle dropped England to pick up Lonoke. This would be a better matchup year after year.

So rumor from some unnamed source stated that Hazen butterflies have only had 5-10 in the weightroom during the workouts in the summer.  They feel they are going to walk the league and be shooed into the number 1 seed for the playoffs.  8)

That is rumor bc there has been on average of 21-24 kids there in the weight room everyday....

Know nothing about CC or Bearden but Brinkley, Marianna and Marvell are glorified scrimmages.  Hazen beat DA by 40 last year and unless the new coach at Carlisle brought some speed with him, those two could be easy wins.  Clarendon got better later last year but their numbers are down so who knows with them.  Given that schedule, I could see Hazen winning 7 games without playing their best.

Each year is different for sure but have they closed the gap on a team that beat them a combined 95-6 last year?

And des arc beat hazen like a drum the 2 years before that. So what is your point?

That the talent level at small schools tends to be cyclical and right now, Hazen is on an uptick. Nothing more, nothing less.

Des Arc is the strongest team in 2A.

Carlisle will be the most improved team in 2A

Clarendon will beat anybody on any given Friday.

Earle & Hazen think they have it easy they’ll get knocked on their butt

Curious about Clarendon's numbers since they were mentioned in the 8 man football discussion.  Anyone know?

Saw Carlisle play Lonoke last year and that was one of the slowest teams I've ever seen.  Can't teach speed so that could be a problem again this year.

DA is by far not the strongest in the 2A but they have improved well had a major change in the summer and I am proud to announce new bleachers will be installed so no more wood all metal.
Carlisle is going to have a different attitude this year for sure but same wing t offense could hurt them
Clarendon is a toss up they have the athletes to play with the best but do not have discipline
Earle will be Earle
Hazen will be the king until they are beaten I think DA and Earle knock them off their horse.

Boys it’s about that time of year again. Time to strap them cleats on and y’all better tighten up them shoulder pads because hazen is in it to win it again. Y’all thought y’all had it hard last year, most people returned and they are hungry

Here's how I think the top 5 will shake out:

1. Hazen
2. DA
3. Earle
4. Carlisle
5. Clarendon

I think 4 and 5 are interchangeable.  Carlisle is breaking in a new coach/new system and I'm just not sure they have the depth or athletes to achieve any higher than 4.  Luckily, outside the top 5, the conference is pretty bad, so I don't think they will fall any lower than 5. 

Overall, I think there is a huge gap between the first three teams and the rest of conference.  And I'm with Sonofasailor...unless the new staff has acquired more athletes, the Bison will struggle with speed.
