Storylines: Every game a test that gets bigger in scope and in consequence. This time, a familiar conference foe comes to town the we know very well. We know what their strengths are, what their weaknesses are, and what they plan to do, which is run, run and run some more. Eastern’s plan is grind the tempo down and the defense down with counters, iso, traps, and buck sweeps, then lull you into a pattern and fire a 30 yard pass downfield to extend their drive to eat clock and score. This game will be about three things for David Bailiff to get his first conference win in the Lone Star Conference.

  1. Play assignment defense.
  2. Score quickly and put distance between the Lions and a Greyhound squad not geared to play catchup.
  3. Make Routine plays and continue to improve on playing disciplined football.

Those things happen, and I see The Lions starting 1-0 and being 3-0 by the end of Saturday Night.
