    Well, the genius at the County Health District decided for all 280,000 tax payers that he was flipping the UIL script and not allowing in-person instruction until after September 7th which means at minimum, the 4A and under high schools will miss 3 to 4 games. So for both 2A #1 Mart and 4A #1 La Vega, that's a big blow. Not to mention Robinson, China Spring, Lorena, Connally, Bosqueville, Crawford... Big time programs getting the shaft sucks!

    Similar things effecting teams in Dallas and Tarrant Counties, as well, and plenty others I'm sure. My hunch is this is probably going to change. Some exceptions/concessions are going to be made that allow these teams to participate just like their contemporaries across the state. But who knows.

    Scheduling could be challenging if that was the case. Cameron was scheduled to play Lago Vista until last week when Travis County suspended activities until September 7th. China Spring was the replacement up until that announcement yesterday. We're now locked in with Mexia.

    Read that over 100 games between 4A and 5A got cancelled. 4A's all trying to find replacements.

    UIL should have made a uniform decision to be honest. This was a CYA decision at best.


    Imo UIL should have done away with non district competition.

    That's a big deal. Likely going to see other County Health Districts follow suit. This, obviously, comes on the heals of the Texas AG essentially telling the County Health Departments they had no authority to tell schools when they could open or shut down. They can still provide input, and that input should be thoroughly considered, but they can't shut anything down (except in very limited situations).

    Now they just have to find games. I'm sure a lot of them will play each other at this point.

    Not sure on that. Cameron was scheduled to play China Spring before that order was handed down. Shortly thereafter scheduled Mexia. As far as I know, that has not changed. I'm sure a lot of other schools also scrambled and filled slots. There are probably some schools still looking...you may just get those neutral site type games like La Vega and WOS are doing this year.

    I have not seen a final China Spring schedule but I do know that Brownwood is back on the schedule after having to drop that game. I can't imagine what the coaching staffs are going through...

    After realignment don't schools set up home and home schedules with each and sign a contract for this. Did UIL release schools of these contracts where it appeared that there was cancellations.

    The biggest goat screw in Texas HSFB history. The teams under the original county orders had to cancel numerous games. Now the order might be lifted and those teams might be clear to play, but new agreements have been reached by the original opponents and the affected schools like La Vega and Mart have to scramble to fill dates again.
