J.B. TexasEx's Achievements

  1. I guess it has changed since I stopped officiating in 2018. I've heard of programs selling chain gang spots as a booster club fundraiser. Great view from the sidelines and an opportunity to get close to the game. Oh, well, those were the good ol' days. But, I still think $60 for a couple hours work should entice HS kids. All they've gotta do is pay attention, keep up, and shut up.
  2. The "210" on the left side of their helmets is f'n stupid IMO. Kids today...
  3. Why not? I've had to tell more than one volunteer dad to STFU during a game while working H. If he didn't comply, it'd be on the offending team to replace him with a student manager, assistant coach, or whoever. Disallowing volunteers affiliated with the home team is just dumb. Some districts contract TASO officials - usually the FNGs - to work the chains on Friday nights. This is easier to do for suburban and city schools. It was usually volunteer dads out in the country with 3A and smaller schools.
  4. TASO officials are independent contractors who don't get paid much. A head coach and school can "scratch" officials and crews from working their games, if displeased with performance, but that's about it. Local chapter leadership can dismiss officials for gross incompetence if they're really bad. But, then they've gotta back-fill with unproven newbies who may be even worse.
  5. Having officiated TASO football for 10 years, it's mostly because the pay doesn't make up for the bullshit from coaches, fans, and your local officiating chapters. I never had a game postponed due to "no chain crew", however. Seems like it shouldn't be too hard to find 3 dads or students to volunteer while paying them $50 each to do it.
  6. I like stripes on the pants and TV numbers. Sue me
  7. You spelled "mediocre" wrong, aggy. Especially when reviewing your overall SEC record. 46-35 = 56% Actually, that's better than A&M did in the SWC or Big 12.
  8. Kids value money, cars, and girls more than alternate uniforms. See Bama
  9. You don't say? https://aggypedia.com/aggypedia/aggy-athletics/the-twelfth-man-a-football-phrase-with-disputed-roots/
  10. We really suck if we can't win with NIL and free agency. Who's got more advantages than UT in the new CFB landscape?
  11. Nah Newsom may push for UCLA to share their proceeds with Berkeley like good communists. "It's best for the UC system." He'd be a damn fool to block the move even if he has the power to do so. Stanford, OR, or WA would be ready to take their place.
