The king is dead, long live the king

November 13, 2012

Alabama was knocked out of the ranks of the undefeated Saturday by Texas A&M, and now all the fans of the Big 12 are praying that at least two of the three undefeated teams — Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame — will run the tables. It is time for a Bowl Championship Series national champion that is not from the SEC.
A&M screwed up big time. If the Aggies would have stayed in the Big 12, they more than likely would be undefeated and have a chance to play for the national championship.

Poteau's first-year coach likes how things are going for Pirates

November 10, 2012

The key word that Greg Werner, Poteau High School's first-year football coach, said about his Pirates going into last week's regular-season finale was “improved.”
The Pirates improved on their record from the last two years as they ended with a winning record at 6-4 after a 62-14 rout of the Tulsa Rogers Ropers on Nov. 2 at Costner Stadium on Senior Night.
“It was a good night,” Werner said. “It's always good to end on a win. Not many teams get to end things with a win, and we ended on a win. Everybody got to play a lot, so it was a very good night.”
