A reader wanted to know what I was trying to say in the note about Idalou last week. I just wanted to point out that Idalou has a group of outstanding athletes like many schools have had in the last few years. Lexington went three rounds into the playoffs last season and went to the state finals in football this year. Idalou is experiencing the same type of success with this group of athletes.
Green Bay will play Pittsburgh in the 2011 Super Bowl. Who will win the annual ultimate game? Both teams have outstanding defenses and good offenses. Early indications are that Green Bay will be favored.
The coaching carousel is just beginning to get started. There will be some jobs become available in the next few weeks and the coachs’ moving van service will be working full time. Coaches from Bastrop, Navasota, Abilene and Cameron are in the final for the Temple job. Rosebud-Lott is open, Robinson is open, and one of the four above will be open. This is just the surface of what is going on.
UT had a great basketball win over Kansas Saturday. Texas seems to be on the rise once again. About this time last year the team imploded and staggered to the finish. They blame it on team chemistry. Maybe Coach Barnes can keep the balance needed to be a major success this year.
The Lady Eagles are beginning softball practice this week. Coach Starnes is being aided by Kadie Dodd this year. Kadie played college ball after leaving Lexington.
