Congratulations, Hornsports!

You got rid of the ads that said, "click to close", but didn't close.  My heroes!  

 

I must admit that those ads were so annoying there was no way I was even going to look at their product, much less buy it.  Thank you, one and all.

 

Hook 'em!

I want an Apple watch--don't laugh.  Just not certain how one would take a call on it.  :-)  Saw a price on it once for $348...not too bad, given that my iphones last forever.  Of course by now the phone may have been priced out of sight, and I'm not entirely certain that I could even read the screen.  Need to see it.

 

Schools expect us to monitor cell phones which irritates me to no end.  When we have 45-50 minutes to take attendance, teach a lesson, check their work, assign and collect  homework, and distribute makeup work to all of the students who have been absent yet refuse to come in to get it before or after school, it seems to me that monitoring students to see if they are texting is pointless.

 

I am inclined to let them fail, but that is no longer politically correct.  Ironically, it gets most of the kids' attention faster than anything else.  Teachers need to spend their time teaching and helping students learn.  Texting is the new doodling.  If they want to doodle during class, it's their loss.

My high school moved to block scheduling almost 8 years ago. Essentially, you go to 4 classes on Monday then your other 4 on Tuesday (instead of 8 in one day). This means each class period is 1.5 hours instead of 45 minutes.

It has been a HUGE hit with teachers and students alike.

    • First half was 12min quarters, 2nd half was 10min.  OL didn't get enough push on run plays for sure, hard to tell from 3rd row at stadium about pass pro.  i thought most punts were pretty good, looked like he had a 60yarder in there.  3 10+ yard runs from RBs all game that I can remember, 1 by Young and 1 by Carter, Carter just isn't impressive.  J McCollough with a few pressures and a coule sacks. Maybe he gets more time a B-Backer?  Collin and LJH both played well. Reece played decent from what I rememeber.  4th Q, Thompson with back to back dimes and then a 20yarder couple plays later.  Overall, first half, we just arnt crisp. Penalties will kill drives again. I just don't think we can recover from a penalty Bc yards seem too hard to come by at this point. OL needs to spend every waking second together. Maybe sleep next to each other in sleeping bags. RBs are opposite of dynamic. Duvernay with 1 very nice deep catch where he got hit and held on. No much else. LJH and CJ are studs. No huge drops on the day. Few close calls on tipped passes. Sam no Shane stood out, neither will take over the game. Neither was bad. Horrible fumbled exchange on RPO early btw Sam and Carter.  Zero sum game, many guys that will play snaps out and Anderson should take over at LT in a couple months.  Hope recruiting went great this weekend! Weather held up great. 
    • Think we're offering Card as a QB or ATH?
    • We don’t like to reach out to kids during their trips. Will reach out once he leaves campus.
    • My five quick thoughts 1. The offensive line isn't much better than last year's version. 2. The defense looks salty. Roach and Hager definitely stood out tonight. 3. LJH is the best running back on the squad, with Yoder coming in second. 4. The two young QB's will be at the top of the depth chart next year. 5. LJH and Johnson will be the offense this next season. After what I saw tonight I am downgrading my expectations for next season. 7 wins in the regular season.
