Aledo vs. Lake Travis

This is a big match up against two 4A powerhouses. If my Jackets weren't playing I would definitely go see this one.

This aught to be a banger alright.  We'll just have to wait and see if Aledo has enough gear to pull this one off.

It is Friday night @ 7:30 at Bearcat Stadium.  It should be more than full.

Aledo is good but last year they got lucky against LT. LT had 3-4 starters out that game including their starting QB. LT by 7. Hard to win at Bearcat stadium though... won't be surprised if Aledo pulls this one off.

"Lucky" was not what Aledo was last year at LT.  Our guys came to play.  It was played the day after a 4 inch rain on grass.  Jonathan was not able to cut quickly without falling down so runs had to contain only slight angles.  Our pass defense was great last year and they would have only scored maybe one more touchdown with Brewer.  They were shut down completely in the second half.  A dry turf field would have more than difference for an Aledo win.  We also brought thousands to Austin and took away the home field advantage.

This year our defense is in the developing stage with some holes.  We should score much more than last year but they will also score much more.  I expect both teams to score 40 and the team with the fewest mistakes to win.  We will definitely pack the place.  I wonder if they will also.

Aledo was also in position to score again, first down inside the 10 with plenty of time.  Victory formation was called and they took a knee on consecutive plays to end it.   They won with class and pure determination.

LT is favored again this year in most polls.  Padilla has them by 9.  There is always a huge difference between winning and losing.  Had we won 48-47, we would probably be favored (although not by much).  They also do not realize how good the Jackets are this year.

Good points, but don't kid yourselves. If Bishop or Gray or both were out for a big game against a good opponent and lost, wouldn't you say it was because you had your key players out?

Lake Travis is good, Aledo is good. Should be a really good game. I think Lake Travis has something in store for Aledo this year though.

Looks better for us if Aledo wins.  I sure wish this was a Saturday game, but I gotta be at the Wood Burning on Friday night.

I hope Lake Travis beats the bearcats!!

Boots, it is posted in the Media section.  It is $10 for access to that section, but maybe you fall into that "special" free upgrade for coaches and Boots (or maybe he will want $100 from you  ??? )
