    Best of luck to your boys this playoff run!! Won't lie that I was hoping y'all would go D2!
    I think we would have had a good game. D has picked up their intensity and a number of injured are back. Take it to the bank and get your repeat! I would love to see a Westlake/Longview game.

      Second half is where Longview is just dominated teams this season.

      Lufkin is the only team that has been able to score multiple times in the 2nd half on our first team.

      Last night's 3rd quarter touchdown to make it 35-14 was just the fourth time this season the Lobo first team D has allowed a touchdown in the second half.

      As you've said this past week, Temple might be the best offense we've seen thus far. But I can definitely guarantee this will be the best defense y'all have played up until this point.

        What's been the issue on D for y'all? Just youth?

        Do y'all have any injuries that might cause players to miss Friday?

          OK then I regress to you. lol. Nah we need Luke in the slot. They need to get inventive on offense. Luke has speed. They need to jet sweep him once in a while, half back pass. You can put luke in the slot, outside, RB. Ever since Spradlin ,left and all of his coaches, the offense is in some needed transformation, and stewart need to get some good assistants, not hire coaches from 0-10 teams the yr before.We need a new OC very badly. We have great wr's that slants would work with, but I don't think any have been called.

            That young excuse worked for awhile, but it has got old. we just haven't got any better. We had to change the D from the 4-2-5 we were running because we lost our big front line going from a couple of 300 pounders to a tiny line change to a 3-4. Our guys are tiny, anywhere from 225- 245 maybe. One of our rb's went out early and never returned. We had a soph that has never played this yr start for another soph, so not sure if the guy was injured or what. we have some banged up players, but so do everyone else at this time. What makes me shiver is holding Rockwall to 3 points. Good Lord that is impressive.

              no question about it. This will be the best defense we will have seem, and sadly our d may be the weakest you will have faced this yr.

                    Apologies.Have nothing but respect for Longview. I see Temple and longview as mirror images in tradition, fanbase, When Temple has been good they make deep runs as do longview.Both impressive rich history in TEXAS football.

                      Yes. We must remember Temple has defeated seven door mats and went 1-2 against teams I consider moderately good at the time we played them (Cedar Ridge, Shoemaker, Midway).
                      Even though we defeated Shoemaker we were trailing after three quarters 21-17. That game was not easy, but when we weren't fumbling and throwing interceptions in the two losses we usually scored TD's. Against Longview we must solve our turnover problem or it's all over after the first quarter.

                              Mesquite was the first team to really get some good kickoff returns on us, that I can remember at least. But they were also 2/3 yards into the end zone and he kept bringing them out.

                              Our kicker hasn't made a field goal since the Horn game. But all of them have been from 40+ yards that he has missed (I think only two or three).

                              Our punt return problems have been well documented in our team thread over the season. But we haven't had an issue the last two weeks!!

                                Well, I would probably be a little arrogant too if I thought we had a team that could compete with you guys this year,lol but this truly is a terrible match-up for Temple.
