Football's Second Season
High School Football enters it's second season with the CIAC State Tournament. Thirty-two teams trying to win the Gold. So many times in thses playoffs, the Quarterfinal and Semifinal games are more exciting and competetive than the Championship Games.
Number 1 seeds can fall early. Let's face it - there is not much difference between the 8th seed and the 1 seed.
But in all these games, I seem to be asking the same question. Does anyone play DEFENSE anymore ? Does anyone TACKLE anymore, wrap up the runner?
The scores of not only the regular season games but even the playoffs have been mind boggling.
84-49 Are you kidding me? This was the final score in a Quarterfinal game this year.
I guess tackling has become a lost art. The Championships will be held at CCSU this year. I hope the games are close and competetive. Those kind of games make for great broadcasts.
Listen, I know it's a cliche. They say offense wins games but defense wins Championships and I firmly believe, the teams that win the Gold will have played DEFENSE, because in my mind, that cliche still holds true.
