Hall County High School Football
It was a good night for two Hall County pigskin teams. The Norse gods were kind to the men from the East of Hall. The traveled and plundered new lands in Morgan County. Also, the soaring Falcons had to defend the nest until the last second to pull out a win. Sadly, the North Nation was carried off to nowhere by a purple hurricane, and Lotti’s Lads had no more heat left in them while losing to St. Pius X. The Red Elephants were laid to rest after a long stomp down Hwy 400 by an excellent Alpharetta team.

Coach Hall must step up his falconry skills for a trip to the heart of Atlanta to play the big cats of Carver. I don’t know when this school became an early college, but they must play some good pigskin. The ATL has not been kind to Hall County all year, and this flight will be tricky for the hunting birds. The Carver band will be fantastic, and the fans will be rowdy. However, I like the discipline of the Falcons to win the day.

East Hall VS. Westminster
The horn heads are for sure battled tested and ready to sail on down Hwy 85 to take on the most expensive school in Atlanta. I am sure the uppity fans of the school named after the best dog show on Earth will not be friendly. I doubt the silver spoons will have seen an offense like E. Halls, and I think that will be the difference. Look for the Vikings to plunder there most valuable land ever!

The Dawgs were just donkey stomped down on the plains by a very impressive Aubarn team. The cheaters won this round. Darth Saban had to use all his dark side powers to pull out a win in Starkvegas against an angry pack of liver spot dogs. There was a cat six hurricane down in Miami where the little men of green were sent home with a spanking. The fighting felines from Pickens South Carolina scalped the Injuns of FSU and the bumbles from the trade school came up big in Blacksburg.

Coach Kirby once said, “You are only a week away from humility.” Coach Kirby shows wisdom at a young age. Uncle Percy once said, ” You are only seven days away from getting your Red and Black swagger back.”Basketball is now the headliner in the Blue Grass state, but coach Mark Stoops gridiron thoroughbreds have made for a nice opening act the past three months. His cats are bowl eligible and will have their claws sharpened when they hit the Classic City Saturday.Kirby’s Kennel must remember that the world has not ended and that they still have their future ahead of them. Uncle Percy also said that you don’t want to kick a Bulldog when it’s it isn’t happy.

Musician Ronnie Milsap famous tune “Smokey Mountain Rain” could not be more appropriate in Knoxville these days. The Candy Stripers are busy filling as many sandbags as they can to stop the tidal wave that has hit Neyland stadium. As Phil, Peyton looks for a new coach to don the coonskin hat, the spirits could not be higher in Red Stick territory. Coach Drano Voice, Ed Ogeron, has his Bayou Bengals soaring after being left as road kill earlier in the season. The high tide that they are riding will not help the flooding conditions on Rocky Top and don’t count on any sympathy cards from the Bayou Brethren.

Michigan VS. Wisconsin
The Mustelidae family reunion is going to be at Camp Randall this year, with the Wisconsin Badgers being the ill-tempered hosts. The tunnel tigers are ranked #5 this year, boasting the NCAA’s #1 defense and #19 offense. The Wolverine’s are ranked #19 with the third-best defense in the nation, so they have plenty of potential to wreck the badger’s den. This should mean a low scoring game between two very good teams. However, when the final whistle blows we expect Paul Chryst’s skunk bears to head back to Ann Arbor a-maize and blue.
Lilly’s Losers is in honor of Leonard Postero who created the original Leonard’s Losers. Many fans, to this day, love the wit and humor of his football prognostications.These musing are just for fun during the high school and NCAA football seasons.
Also, we will miss our friend Shaw Carter. He was a better man than all of us!
