Brentwood was one of the best teams in Middle TN this year and Houston just beat them 28-0. :bored:

No disrespect but Williamson County was not nearly as competitive as they have been in years past. Houston is better than some folks think/ give them credit for but Bretwood was not the world beaters some thought either.

Brentwood lacks in the physicality department.  Good athletes, but less physical.

Oakland by 20

Oakland's championship reign comes to an EMPHATIC end, this Saturday! 

Houston 24

Oakland 17

-------------------------

Houston is disciplined, well coached, stout in the trenches and solid in all 3 phases of the game. 

Oakland will be forced to throw the ball more than they're accustomed.  They will be unsuccessful.  They will lose. 

After a 20-year hiatus, the Gold ball will return to the Suburbs of Memphis -- the City of Germantown's other Public High School, Houston.

Don't think either team is going to be throwing it that much Saturday with rain in the forecast for the day before and day of the title game

After watching each team's semifinal each time I'm hear to give my (slightly biased) opinion.......

Houston offense v. Oakland defense: The match-up that the inclement weather will affect the most. I like that Houston sprinkles in a little but of everything,  little bit harder to get a read on their tendencies. Houston does throw the ball more, but most of these passes were to get the ball to their playmaker on the perimeter. 

Sisa is a handful, he can dissappear behind all the size Houston has upfront hits top speed pretty quickly and if he gets past the initial level, only way he's going down is if you got the angle on, not a lot of east-west movement, once he gets the ball he may make one cut then hits it.

Houston does a really good job getting the ball to their playmakers quickly. Oakland has faced better QB's but Houston's is no slouch, he did float one on a obvious passing down, hopefully Oakland can force Houston into those type of situations. Sisa gets most of the praise but #7 hurt Brentwood more than once and #9 is a solid safety valve when things break down. The shovel pass Houston ran in the first half was a beauty

 

Oakland offense v. Houston defense:

Should be a great matchup. Each line has plenty of size up front. Really impressed by the discipline of Houston that sniffed out screens by Brentwood a few times. Had Baylor Hayes running for his life all night, felt like they were blitzing but alot of times they were just bringing 4. Brentwood was able to hurt them a little over the middle, maybe that's something Oakland can exploit on a 2nd or 3rd & short.

Team speed is as close I've seen to matching Oakland since Center Grove, even if you got them dead to rights on a play, they recover really well. Biggest question I have for the defense is can they hold up to Oakland's running game when so many starters go both ways. Thats hard to do. Wouldn't be surprised to see go tempo a few times just to see if they can tire Houston out a little 

Other factors: 90 percent chance of rain for both Friday and Saturday, this is the kind of game that seems to favor Oakland, not sure how many times Houston will want to risk a quick or shovel pass in those conditions.

I'm sure Houston will refute any idea that their nervous, but there will be a point during the game where it hits them that they are playing for a title,  for the entirety of Oakland's roster, all they've ever known is playing for a gold ball, aside from a couple. This is also a 5 (6 if you count the time change) hour trip for Houston, that's a long time to be on a bus

Factoring all that, I'm taking Oakland,  24-13

    • Barney, it's sad that you truly think you know everything that occurs out at Heritage, with all due respect, sir, you do not.  Players leave programs every single year from every school, losing or not. We can just leave that alone. No leg to stand on there.  You can talk to any player that is still needing this coach to do things for him and if he's been "coached on what to say enough" he won't say one negative thing about the program.  I'm not sure who is pushing a 'narrative' of losing as it seems the other athletes and other athletic programs seem to be doing a dang good job at Heritage. Winning seasons, record setting seasons and more. People who know you aren't going to divulge information you are probably going to talk about, they aren't going to admit their faults, the screw ups, and what's being hidden under the rug.  If you only knew a sliver of what goes on in the classroom and locker room at that school, you'd know why the respect, the social media backers, the 'hype' is fading.  But go on, Barney, talk your talk, everybody lets you do that. Use your past cliches and reminiscing of the good ol' days to try and talk around and never circle back on your replies.   
    • Better yet, go ahead do a match by match hypothetical against #41 - 50. Enlighten us with your knowledge of Fab 50 teams and all the kids on their rosters.
    • That’s because without looking you could not name 5 teams in the Top 50 not named Wyoming Seminary or Blair Academy. Our results at the national level would say otherwise. 
    • Upperman needs to stop fouling. Half of White County’s points coming from foul line. Holding WC to 16 in a half not too shabby. Have to do it for 4 quarters though. 
    • Wasn't things so much better for you all when they went 0-10 or when your 1,500 yard rusher (Wright) left to go play at Alcoa or when Jett left to play at Maryville because they got tired of the azz beatings and the humiliation they felt from all of that losing. Could you imagine if Coach OZ brought a cattle prod and stuck it up to your son's tail end at practice or made the offensive linemen push a station wagon while the coach was in the drivers seat mashing down on the brakes. If you think Coach Oz is a bad man then I guess you never heard of A.J. Wilson who coached for Walland most of the 50's and early 60's. If I hadn't of heard those stories from such credible men such as the late Benny Dalton ,Don Story and a host of other great friends from Walland that played during that time I wouldn't have believed it. They all just laughed about it while telling it but none had anything bad to say about him. Just like your QB that started the last two years at Heritage, he only had the best to say about Coach Oz and how much he helped him when I talked to him a few weeks ago. Coach Oz is what the doctor ordered for Heritage, a little "Shock and Awe" and the resistance still out there pushing their narrative and praying for a loss every week.
