TOES’ 2011 WEEK 1 NFL, COLLEGE, HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL PREDICTIONS
PREVIOUS WEEKS REVIEW/RANDOM THOUGHTS
Thursday Matt Davis Klein Forest QB and Texas A&M Commit made his return from a torn ACL, and looked just as good as ever against a Cinco Ranch Team that looked really bad their lineman looked really out of shape, and obese way too fat. I know lineman are supposed to look that way but some of them looked like they cant get out of bed much less run over 50 yards but gosh Katy is gonna beat them by 50 points this year. Here watch Matt Davis run over that guy at the 3:45 mark in the video below lol
Katy once again opened up with state ranked and nationally ranked North Shore and Katy dominated them from start to finish. They looking like the favorites for the state championship out of the Houston area
They had the battle of the lakes in Austin and Lake Travis once again owned Westlake, and just like last year did it with their backup quarterback after the starter had been injured, Colin Lagasse was injured early then backup Junior Blake Mayfield came in and Led Lake Travis to a 35-7 victory here are the highlights of that one

HYPE VIDEO FOR THE GAME
As far as this game betting wise goes I was going Oregon all the way, I like Oregon to win this game outright and figuring LSU and the SEC stereotype of being the supreme conference would inflate the line a lil bit, and the oddsmakers would make LSU a slight favorite. Recent events have erased any kinda line inflation towards LSU. The Quaterback Jordan Jefferson and his suspension for a fight in a bar, Russell Sheppard LSU’s number one playmaker is suspended as well for something off the field. So now I dont really feel that there is any real value in taking Oregon (my national championship pick) Now Oregon is only a slight favorite, but when your giving me a team I think will win anyways and then on top of that give me some points to add on top of it, I would of like to bet Oregon big. But thats not the case now. with Oregon being favored by 4 points So I will probably stay away from this one. But I would Go Oregon if someone forced me to.

HIGH SCHOOL GAME OF THE WEEK
THE WOODLANDS HIGHLANDERS vs HIGHTOWER HURRICANES
Friday Sept. 2nd 2011, 7pm Fort Bend ISD Hall Stadium
# 5 Blake Webb, Cooper Woodyard QB/S, Hightower QB Bralon Addison (A&M Commit) RB Josh Wilhite (Wake Forest Commit)
LAST YEARS WOODLANDS HIGHTOWER INSTANT CLASSIC HIGHLIGHTS
Hightower is led by Texas A&M commit Bralon Addison who plays QB for Hightower but will play some other position at A&M. And RB Josh Wilhite who was injured last year and is back for this season. The Woodlands is still trying to find a quarterback between seniors Lance Miles a Kansas State commit for baseball who struggled last week throwing 3 picks against a weak opponent in Monterrey Tech out of Mexico. The other candidate is Cooper Woodyard who played well last week, both will play. They are also trying to fill in for Daniel Lasco who at California now. Randy Cooper looks to be the majority ball carrier but the will struggle to fill Lasco’s shoes and production The Woodlands struggled a lil bit on defense last week giving up some plays through the air. Hightower lost to a athletic Eisenhower team. With Hightower offense and their stability of returning playmakers I will give them a slight edge this year but Woodlands could easily win this one but expect a shootout either way just like last year
FORT BEND HIGHTOWER: 41
THE WOODLANDS: 35
TOMBALL COUGARS vs JERSEY VILLAGE FALCONS
Friday Sept. 2nd 2011 7pm Pridgeon Stadium (cypress)
This is the opening game for Jersey Village so you know they will be up for this game. Tomball is coming off a very embarassing showing against Katy Morton Ranch. Tomball had problems all over the field in their opener. Dropped passes was the main one. QB Dvorak attempted 50 passes completed 30 of them for 60% fixing the drops could have pushed that to around 75% but the drops killed them coming at the most inopportune times,stalling drives and taking away game tying touchdowns. The line stuggled pass blocking up the middle. The running game was pretty much non existent running in between the tackles. .Fumbling the opening kickoff didnt help either(which turned into 6 points the other way). The run defense stuggled up the middle giving up some long TD runs. Just like last weeks opponent Morton Ranch, Jersey Village returns 14 starters off of last years teams. Last year Tomball defense forced 5 turnovers against Jersey Village in the 43-6 victory (I think that was the score). Dont count on 5 turnovers again and a much closer game this time
JERSEY VILLAGE: 21

COLLEGE GAME OF THE WEEK
#19 GEORGIA BULLDOGS (+3.5) vs #5 BOISE STATE BRONCOS (-3.5)
Saturday September 3rd 7pm Atlanta Georgia Dome
Georgia Freshman RB Isiah Crowell, QB Aaron Murray, Boise St. QB Kellen Moore, Safety George Iloka (Fort Bend Kempner H.S.)
Now this game you average SEC team and and the BCS buster hopeful Boise State and when they play these games against BCS conference foes they always seem to have their A game. But going against a decent SEC team I dont think they are gonna beat this one. Georgia has a good defense and their RB true freshman Isiah Crowell I think will be this years Marcus Lattimore. Georgia is a 3.5 point underdog right now, Im guessin that will shrink by game time but if it stays 3 or above I really like Georgia in this one. I just hope Boise State loses so we dont have to hear the “do they belong” talk all year. But the Mountain West Conference will be a good move for them this year but Its kinda repetitive year after year about having to hear about them. As I always say if an SEC team is getting points take them! So I like Georgia (+3.5) in this one.
