You guys are showing calpreps this calpreps that...but look at this.
this years team is only 4 points better than last years team according to the computer....which is malarkey imo.
This teams defense has really stepped up and is pretty fast. The 2015 team with klem is the only team I would argue had a better defense. In terms of offense...this year it’s really special. In years past running the up tempo, GS almost struggled to drive the ball down the field. It was largely chunk plays and there were plenty of times where you could get GS to a 3 and out. It’s the downfall of up tempo. If you get stalled, you just give the ball right back and the other team can eat up clock. It’s been the gameplan of other teams.....but this years team there are simply so many weapons and they have shown that they will drive the ball down the field if you stop the big plays. It’s truly something different this year.
Between delong butler and May at WR, any of those 3 could go for well over 100 yards on a given night. Butler can play RB in place of Spindler...Spindler has really stepped up as a pass catching RB too. This last week we seen a new wrinkle of using the TE a lot more. The OL is also improved over last year in that they are picking up blitzes better and playing smarter.
This is all without even factoring in Allen who spent all off season training at camps and going to 7on7s and is playing like a true upperclassman.
all in all, the computer projections can say whatever but it simply isn’t as accurate as it should be to speculate like we want to. This year’s GS team is much better than just a 4 point spread over last years and that’s a testimony to how much these returning players have worked to get better.
Speculate all you want about memorial vs GS but it’s pointless. I think what we really need to be talking about is this matchup in 2 weeks in the jungle. Last year Heritage Hills smacked GS bad and handed them a 31-7 loss. After the game, Coach Hart was very upset and said on the radio broadcast “whatever it takes, I’m going to find 11 kids who want to play titan football”. Heritage Hills has returned a ton of their team and are locked and loaded.
Memorial Vs GS is for the birds
GIbson Southern @ Heritage Hills is the game we need to talk about. And imo I would probably rank them 1A 1B in this ranking.
