PHEW!
« on: November 04, 2018, 05:10:20 PM »
Man, didnít think getting the title would be this difficult, but Mitey Mite is a lot different.

We won the D1 title 8-6. Not only was it the first time our ORG has wob a D1 title, but itís the 1st time weíve played in a D1 title fame in our 51 year history (last year we got knocked out 1 game before). So itís definitely a cool achievement.

Our opponent was well prepare & played a great game. They had the best athlete on the field for sure. Our top 11 were prob better than their top 11, but w/ 28 kids & a 10 play minimum, my best 11 rarely saw the field. When they finally did & got a chance to be on the field for extended time, they marched about 85 yards down to the 1, where we took a knee to run the clock out. We def could have scored, but there was 1:05 left & they were out of timeouts. Literally the only way we lose is if we fumble. D1 title game is not the time to make decisions w/ your ego.

On that last drive we had a 4th & 2 on about their 25. I called buck sweep, but after seeing their alignment I didnít like it, so called a timeout. (they were moving their D ALL GAME). This team was just so fast, any outside run was a big risk. They were selling out on trap. So I went w/ Power. Bare in mind, I think weíve ran power twice this season. We run it, get 6. We wound up hitting belly dive for about 10 all the way to the 1 & then went vicotry formation twice.

Anyhow, great year. Finish local play at 11-0. Next we play in Reno & then the D1 champs from Sothern California. No natuonals at Mitey Mite level (Except some $80,000 bowl game. No thanks).

Thank you sir!

Well my 2 best players will stay down. My stud guard & Mike will as well. We also might lost our stud WB & corner cuz his dad is a pro basketball coach (likely to move). So iíll be moving up w/ a lot of young players & only inheriting a few decent players. So next season will be a grind. Iím gonna recruit my but off, try to get back in the hunt. But weíre going to be a slow grind it out team if no new backs show up.

Iím excited about next year though. After years of just dominating, iím ready for a season where every game is an absolute grind.

Ha ha. I hear you, but grinding is way better. Every W means something. Every game is a new chess match. That said, as long as you have a couple good games, dominating can be fine. But when thereís no one? I find almost no satisfaction in those years.

Watch my LT on Belly. This is on our last drive that iced the game. The player he destroys was a really good player. Juzt an incredible block for a 9 year old 1st year player.

Tell me about it.  Sometimes dominating everyone even leads to a lack of respect given to your own team because they "don't play anybody".  I coached my daughter's grade in basketball from 4th grade through 8th grade last season.  A lot of the girls developed into outstanding players and as a team we were pretty much untouchable the last two years in junior high.  Now 5 of them have made the varsity team as freshman this year.  But all we ever heard the last couple years was how we weren't really that good, our competition just sucked.

Often times youíre really good and not playing anyone. Thatís the worst.

Our team this year had no identity coming into the playoffs becauase we were never tested. We really had to discover it during our playoff games.
