The Hoover Bucs returning from their 34-7 win over Tulsa-Union.

WTF is this?? And are there no other high schools in Alabama, or what?? [or should I say *Hah Skoo-ols?]

My high school’s football team always rode back in a beat-up school bus…and we were the school district with money. :smiley:


#3

You’re high school also probably was never featured in Sports Illustrated as the best high school team in the country. :wink:


#4

SI voted my high school football team most likely to serve 10 to 20!

No, but many in the area have CONSISTENTLY been up there at or near #1. Cleveland St. Ignatious, Cle-St. Edward, Cle-Glenville, Masillon Washington and their arch rival Canton McKinley (only the best H.S. football rivalry on the planet, which led to the birth of the NFL). I’m in the middle of H.S. football’s hotbed. Maybe that’s why nobody has to travel too far for real competition. Bring on the Bucs!! :wink:

I think you have been watching “O Brother Where Art Thou” too much. Always nice to see people making fun of the way fellow Americans talk. :angry:

My father lives in South Carolina, and he lived in Virginia for 20 years before that. Been there, done that, spoken w/ many a southerner. The truth is the truth…y’all. :wink:

Just for the record: I never said that southerners were backward or stupid; just that most speak with a “southern draw,” which is actually kinda neat (and very true). Don’t be so thin-skinned!! :unamused:

A few tidbits of info on the game.

  1. Sold out in Tulsa in 30 minutes
  2. Supposedly, Univ. of Tulsa offered to have Skelly Stadium (40,000 seats) available after Tulsa’s Thursday night sleeper vs. Steve Austin (that would be Stephen F. Austin), but allegedly, the new Union head coach said no (MORON)
  3. It was a beautiful beat down of Union. Maybe those idiots that have the Union “U” (similar to Miami’s “U”) tatooed on their bodies, and they don’t have kids that even go to Union, will now shut up and realize that there are teams outside of OK that are better (I am dreaming of a De La Salle, Mission Viejo, Thousand Oaks, or Long Beach Poly matchup to get them off my backs about beating a less and decent Clovis team 4 years ago)
  4. “Two-A-Days” SUCKS!! Don’t focus on the soap opera on the #1 HS football team, focus on the games.

OK, so #4 wasn’t really about the game, but oh well. It was nice to be able to sit at home and watch it on FSN and not have to fight 71st St. traffic!!!


#12

As someone with roots in the south, I saw nothing wrong with your statement. Some of the sexiest sounding women are the ones with southern drawls.


#13

I must say that i think the MTV deal has a small little role in that one.

And by the way the show isnt even all that great. :smiley:


#14

MTV = Masochist TV because you need to be a masochist to watch the channel!

**I graduated from Union High School in Tulsa in 2004. I go to Oklahoma State now. Here are a few “tidbits” about the game that you forgot to mention!!

  1. Union has 18 new starters on their team this year
  2. Union has a brand new head coach from who knows where
  3. Union has 2 other new coaches including a new offensive coordinator.
  4. Union held Hoover off almost the entire first half
  5. Union DOES play other schools then just in Oklahoma. We have gone to California and played Clovis…at home and there… and beat them. We TRIED to play De La Salle but they refused to play us each time b/c they were afraid of losing their #1 spot in the nation. We played Arkansas teams and Texas teams… all ending up with a Win for Union.
  6. TU always offers up their stadium to Union. Union’s games are always almost sold out. TU gets money from having these football games held there. Our local game against Jenks (voted best high school rivalry from USAToday) is held at TU. It’s NOT stupid to have a home game AT OUR HOME STADIUM!!! What kind of IDIOT are you to say that we are morons to pass that up? We get the money from it… we get to show off our #1 ranked high school stadium… and we get home field advantage. You obviously don’t know shit.
  7. I PROMISE YOU NO SCHOOL IN THE TULSA AREA WOULD HAVE PEOPLE SHOW UP AT OUR GAMES SPORTING THE “U” Those are Union fans you jack ass! Union is- or used to be up until this year- the team to beat in Oklahoma. Everybody who does not go to Union… hates us. Because Union is better at much of everything else.
  8. I’m glad you didn’t have to beat the 71st St. Traffic… but why on earth would you even want to go to the game. We don’t want people like you on our Turf. I may be an alumni… but I was raised on Union Football. And I will back that school up anytime… anywhere.
  9. This is a rebuilding year for Union… so back off.
  10. I agree, that mtv show sucks. It needs to be more about the games and less about what girl told so and so’s boyfriend something and yada yada yada. But Union received a contract in the mail to be the next season on there.

And Finally- I just want to say to learn your shit before you go and bad mouth another school. We have tried to play tougher schools… Hoover was finally one who agreed to play us. And don’t say we don’t go out of Oklahoma… because we do. **

Bring your little Union football team up to Ohio (or PA for that matter), and the big boys will show you how to play some REAL football. :smiling_imp: :smiling_imp:


#17

I beleive that you will have that chance next (2007) season in the Kirk Heirbstreit Ohio vs. USA Football Classic.

PLEASE BEAT THEM DOWN!!!

Granted, they are now 0-3 and we don’t hear much from them. Of course, when you open your schedule with the #1 team in the USA, followed by the #15 team in the USA, then play the #2 team in the state, it could be ugly.

From the CIF, Union turned down Long Beach Poly, Mission Viejo, and the lesser known Bishop Amat. Now, I grew up just south of Clovis. Beating them those two years (or most any year for that matter) is nothing to brag about. I have also heard that Bellvue(or view, I don’t know) in WA wanted to play Union, but was turned down. Yes, the same school that STOPPED De La Salle’s winning streak. Saying that DLS was afraid to play Union is a joke because they did play Evangel Christian (LA) that was ranked #4 at the time, in LA, and won, played Southlake Carrol (ranked #14 at the time) beat them…do I need to continue?

It is good to be proud of your alma mater, but putting a tatoo of a HIGH SCHOOL logo on your body? Excessive.

New coach, not an excuse if you have the players that Union does. He is going totally away from Union’s strengths. THEY DON’T EVEN RUN A TRUE SPEAD OPTION!!! Big Bill created a pro-style/run & gun system. New coach, while understandable to make his mark and seperate himself from Big Bill, should use the strengths he has. THROW THE DAMN BALL!!! Look how successful Union was vs. Jenks when they threw the ball! Against Muskogee, again, couldn’t run the “option” worth a crap, moved the ball with the spread formations and passing!

One last thing…TU offered way more than they ususally do of the gate. Why not have 25k-30k there rather than 16k?

I also found the one rivalry that I can GUARANTEE is more brutal than OSU-OU…Auburn-Alabama. Now that is brutal…
OK, back to aviation…can this thread be saved?

Glad to hear it. I was so busy this past weekend that I forget who came to Massillon to play in it this year. BTW: I love Herbie (in a heterosexual college football fan sort of way), and College Gameday is the best program on ESPN, no matter where they happen to be in any particular week.

It is good to be proud of your alma mater, but putting a tatoo of a HIGH SCHOOL logo on your body? Excessive.

Absolutely. One of (if not the) best HS football rivalries is the Canton McKinley-Massillon war each year. It’s the reason the NFL was started. Anyhow, there are the normal throngs of HS football fans and alumni of both schools, and you also have the guys who never let go of their H.S. years, still wearing their 30-yr.-old varsity jackets and picking fights with fellow baby boomers from the other side (on the way to the parking lot to get in their '82 Camaro, no doubt).:unamused:

I also found the one rivalry that I can GUARANTEE is more brutal than OSU-OU…Auburn-Alabama. Now that is brutal…

I agree. I still think that Ohio State-Michigan is the best rivalry, but there’s much more raw hatred and brutality between Auburn and 'Bama. My older brother went to Alabama, and he vehemently hates anything or anybody that even speaks of Auburn. It’s borderline psychotic…

OK, back to aviation…can this thread be saved?

Doesn’t look good. :smiley:

I was in the “beautiful” city of Pelham, AL this past weekend and one of the sales guys at the yard wanted to leave early. He played TE for Alabama. Well, the sales mgr. is an Auburn grad and told the salesman that if he wanted to leave early, he had to say “War Eagle”. Needless to say, the salesman stayed.

Pik, I think you’d best pack your bags and get ready to move back to Clovis!

How can you live in Tulsa and be unaware of one of the greatest rivalries in college football? The Red River Shoot Out!!!

Even my PSU grad son in law, who was the kicker on the '95 Rose Bowl team for JoePa, looks forward to the game and the opportunity to call up my Sooner grad son in law, utter “Hookem Horns”, and hangup! :smiling_imp:
