A quick glance at the stats show Highland as having scored 73 points for vs having 235 points scored against them.

Those are sick stats, 93!

After the blowout loss to Centralia, it was apparent that the Bulldogs season was over almost as soon as it began.

Now the Bulldogs will travel to Triad this coming Friday and get ripped to pieces! I'm expecting Triad will tear them apart something along the order of 49 - 7 by the half. Coach Bassler usually doesn't like to run up the score against horrible teams like Highland, but since Triad and Highland have a bitter rivalry that dates way back before you and I were thought of...he might.

My guess is if the Highland fans act like Aholes, then Highland can expect Coach Bassler to take off the Kid Gloves and play Smashmouth Football! In which case, Highland will be ripped to shreds, something along the order of 70 - 7 or greater. Perhaps Coach Bassler MIGHT ease off the accelerator and allow Highland a few "mercy" touchdowns. On the other hand, Coach Bassler may send in his second and third stringers at the start of the second half.

Highland will still get their asses handed to them, but at least the Bulldogs won't be sent home with their tails between their legs totally humiliated, demoralized and destroyed.

If I was running the show, I would've tried to hire Ric Johns...the former Head coach of Belleville West and former Offensive coordinator at Triad. Ric Johns has an imressive resume...look it up. Other than having a Head Coach like Johns, there's not much more I can say. At least it would have been a step in the right direction.

You guys have so many issues on both sides of the ball, should the trend continue, expect Highland to be basement dwellers for a very long time.

Meanwhile, Triad will continue to dominate the MVC. Currently they've won the MVC crown 8 out of the last ten years and I fully expect them to win the crown this year.

Triads Dynasty Record: 33-18 (22-3 in league)

Cant speak for everybody but i remember storming the field at your place. I remember a great game and a ton of ppl coming out to watch. I remember lance still out rushing triads whole team that night. Playoffs a few years ago, triad highland first round. Highland wins again ending triads season. Last year 31-0 at half, then the mike buhene show began. Highland 36 triad31. Triad has had the upper hand lately but every great power falls.

As the old saying goes...Ya can't win 'em all.

However, Triad won more games and MVC Crowns than Highland. How many MVC Crowns did Highland win when I was playing and since then? Let me think for a moment...Ah, it's all coming back to me now...NONE! ZERO!

I remember the time we took to the field at your place on October 8, 2004 and stomped the hell out of you to the tune of 62 - ZERO!

Hell, if the rest of the starters and I didn't get pulled from the game, we could've EASILY scored well over 100 points!

Now that you've got me fired up, I hope Coach Bassler lets Triad hang 100 points+ on your sorry asses when you come to our house on Friday!

Numbers don't lie, dude

Triads Dynasty Record: 33-18 (22-3 in league)

Highlands Dynasty Record: 23-25 (14-11 in league)

PLUS Triad won the MVC Crown 8 of the last 10 years

How many Crowns did Highland win during that time?

BBBWWWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA HAHA!

We REALLY don't care about your comments about Highland. You sitting home on a Sat night and posting comments on Highland Topix sounds like you are living the big life now. Way to go Shano!

I'm very disappointed with the Highland Bulldog Football Program. I now know how Barry Sanders felt about being a Detroit Lion. As you all probably know, Barry Sanders quit on the Lions because he was so damn tired of busting his ass and losing all of the time.

As for me and the Bulldogs, I'm done rooting for them. It's a waste of my time.

McBride made some very valid points, and for that, you losers flamed him. The man spoke the truth and had the facts to back up what he wrote.

I'm surprised you creeps didn't insinuate guys like Hickey Thompson and I used performance enhancers also. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves, I know I am! You people talk, and act like losers. Is it any wonder why the Bulldogs perform the way they do? It's because they have the same mindset as you guys.

In my opinion, the program must either undergo radical changes or save the taxpayers money and dismantle the program. The Bulldogs have been the laughing stock of the Mississippi Valley Conference for way too long. Aren't any of you disgusted that the Bulldogs are an annual disgrace in the conference?

Shane is right. The Bulldogs will be ripped to pieces this coming Friday night. You can take that to the bank, losers!

I know former players who have came out and said they were on steriods when playing at triad. Not trying to bash anybody but people do talk. I heard about shane and his steriod thing in college. Didnt know if it was true but if it is shame on him honestly, shane had some talent. As far as the billy greenwald, we all know he hit the roids as well. 6 ft over 215 lbs in hs and even bigger in college. Now he stands 5'9 165. Thats a huge difference. It wasnt a huge secret, cheating is cheating

That is ridiculous..... I cannot believe you just got of this public forum and bashed your own towns High school program. It's like calling the kettle black here Billy, you call someone out on their behavior and yet you get on her at 40 years old and do the same exact thing. Maybe the person did make some good points. Idk I don't follow Highschool football other then listening to the scores, only because my son (who will be a future highland football player) is not at that level yet. Someone made a point earlier in this post, a lot of the good football athletes are NOT playing. I know that for a fact. What happened idk but it's very disappointing.
You have boys don't you Billy, are you gonna move out of Highland when they become the age to start playing? Or maybe you just have girls idk that either? Guess they can be cheerleaders in another town?
I just think it's shameful for you to talk about wasting tax payees money on the athletic program. I pay taxes I say keep it. A lot of these school have middle school teams as well, we can't afford a new field at our middle school. When kids have to play for the highland QB club there is weight limitations on positions they can play. And it just dont make good sense as they get to 7th and 8th grade. I just think it would make a big difference if somehow this community could figure some way some how to get our kids a way to have a middle school team.

Billy did not post that about Highland Football. It was Shane McBride writing that. You do not have to put in your real name and that posting came from Edwardsville (same as Shanes) did and the grammar was exactly the same as Shane's. He is trying to give Billy a bad name and it's a shame you fell for it.

Well shame on me? No shame on the person writing it.... Am I a mind reader? I didn't say anything out of place as a reader, replying to a post. So shame on you for shaming me!

I am so tired of all of the rivalry between these 2 teams. Why can't everyone try to get along for once. That might be too much to ask of some people. Let's face it Triad is a powerhouse this year but some time in the future the role might be reversed and why can't everyone be glad for them. Everyone pays their dues and as teams go they run in cycles. I was there during Billy Greenwald's era and Highland was powerful, I know because one of my son's played for that team. Now I have a grandson playing for Triad and I am just as excited watching him play. I wish Highland could be a better team and come out and give them some competition but as I read in the paper and listen to other parents talk I don't see that happening. I will be at the game Friday night cheering for Triad but wish I could be cheering for a good game instead. I was very proud of Highland last year when they came out in the second half and play their hearts out. I was sad to see my grandson lose but glad that Highland held their heads up and acted like gentleman. I hope they do that Friday even if they lose...be proud of yourself and account for your actions no matter where you are from.
