    PR has to throw the ball to be successful. SC couldn't do it, don't think PR will. NB can do both on any team. Think it will be tight in 1st half but NB puts them away in the 2nd half. Something like 28-14.

    The team that turns the ball over last in the 4th quarter will lose the 4A title game. I don't see a blow out either way between New Bern or Porter Ridge. Britt is ready to go. I think they will put up more of a fight than people think.

    It is likely to be Butler and New Bern.

    I don't understand why that was brought up. We are confident, and so what, they might be a little cocky. Heard a commentator last night say all the great ones were cocky. When you are 14-0 you have a right to be. I know what I typed. GO BEARS

    Good luck to NB...great team this year, great program...don't follow your reasoning on the ring but that's ok...confidence is good...cocky is annoying...and if you can't see the dis for PR, you aren't proof reading your posts...

    So Curlings should give back his ring since he lost twice? This NB team is UNDEFEATED and blowing out people, this isn't last years team, we beat Havelock this year we beat SC this year. Who is dissing PR? We know they are good, otherwise they wouldn't be here. We had over 300 yards total offense and dropped a ton of catches and threw 2 int's and still won by 17 points. Team finds a way to handle adversity. Yes anything can happen, but I am betting on NB. Sorry you disagree.

    and won what?...the NB team that won the title lost twice and once badly (to a very good Hoggard team), and squeaked by a team late in the PO's...glad there is no bias on your part...you dis your opponent you sometimes pay the price...and SC held NB fairly well also, but don't let that get in the way of your victory parade...I doubt you're the only one watching film...anything can happen - like 7 TO's against Havelock...

    No sir. Was around the team yesterday. Pumped and ready to go, been watching film on PR since early Saturday morning. Our HC has a ring and OC has over 30 years experience and a field named after him, think we are in good hands. They have put up over 600 points and held SC and that high powered O to just 6 points for a reason. NB has been here before as well, these guys have been in 3 straight East finals now a title game.

    PR being underrated...they have great coaching and have been here before...let's hope NB isn't reading their own press...at least in this forum...

    buckeye....

    Love to put up a friendly wager on the PR NB game. NB will win by at least 3 scores. 15-0 here we come. Butler and NB roll to titles.

    Well if there is anything I know, it's that Curlings and Jordan know what they are doing, the team is 14-0, Curlings has won a title and aiming for his 2nd and Jordan is a legend around the area and he gunning for his 1st. These guys know their players. Whatever they are doing, it is working.

    I've also played in games where I our coach would use negative press clippings to motivate a player. It did light a fire under the guy, but he ended up pushing too hard in the game to prove everyone wrong. Threw a couple of costly INT's, but we ended up winning a close game. I can see both ways.

  • piratefball172 Nov 27, 2012
    Sports Legend

    I agree Tyler. All of the teams I have ever played on that were good, our coaches used Hale's philosophy. That is how I responded. As an athlete, losing was my best motivator. I say do what works, but I was just using that as an example. Different philosophies produce different results. A coach has to find the pulse of his team.

  • Tyler12 Nov 27, 2012

    I don't think it hurts to put some negative talk about a certain player or team in a locker room. Didn't say they needed it, but it surely doesn't hurt. These are 15-18 year old kids we are talking about.

  • piratefball172 Nov 27, 2012

    "Our kids, they don't need any extra motivation for a state championship game," Hales said.

    Quote from the Butler coach proves my point from earlier. I can understand why they are nationally ranked and dominant.

    Had to put this up....since Komo has gone MIA. Thought it would be fun to have a best of- of Komo quotes!

    RE: Which teams do you like to win the 4A & 4AA State Titles?
    @bullcity-No one is scared of New Bern, but Hillside, New Hanover, and Hoggard. Laney and Havelock are the only teams that will stand up to them. You a New Bern fan now, Bullcity? If you cant beat them and if you scared of them, join them. The Scots will show the State how its done. IN THE BERN. QUOTE ME. PUT THIS IN NEW BERN'S lockerroom.
    @Red & Black- You keep talking about how I am going to get put in my place. Well, for the second year, I am here.
    @Bear- And about me talking too much? I have only just begun. New Bern wants to dominate this message board? Well Scotland County is here to stay!!
    @ALL New Bern Fans, followers and Posters- Lee County is no stranger to us. We have been rivals for years. And they are a strong team. We know this. The Scots know they have to play. I dont. I am talking and telling you in advance what is going to happen. The defense is going to shut them out and they cant stop our run. Bailey can name the score. We had 40 on East Chapel Hill last week at the half. We can name the score. We are now just like we were last year. We just waiting on the moment when we are ready to turn it on. It's getting ready to get real interesting.

    RE: Which teams do you like to win the 4A & 4AA State Titles?
    We want that too. Its fun whipping an opponent that everyone is scared of. Jack Britt was anxious to meet us. Richmond was too. So we are coming Bears. We are the true ROAD WARRIORS. And we got SWAG.

    Well where was that when I needed it last year? I lost $60 bucks, a pint of B's BBQ, and Brunswick Stew to some old teammates of mine from Scotland picking New Bern. LOL

  • Tyler12 Nov 26, 2012

    I know for a fact it was put in the locker room. Our defensive staff put it up there, among other things.

  • piratefball172 Nov 26, 2012

    I seriously doubt your players could care less what people say about them. They play for each other and for the team. Your fans care more about what is said on message boards. Your team takes care of business where it counts, and that is on the field. I seriously doubt any message board post help ignite a fire. Getting 63 put up on them last year plus a state championship was all the fire they needed. It just gives fans like you ammo.

  • Tyler12 Nov 26, 2012

    Whatever you say. Don't tell me to grow up when I confront you about your statement. Thank you though for that statement, the D saw it.

  • piratefball172 Nov 26, 2012

    And that was based on what I saw in the two games I attended. Every week is a different week, different scheme. Maybe those were off weeks as far as their scheme was concerend. Maybe one team made more plays than the other. You just never know.

    lol grow up..I was just asking about your comment, SC has "way" better Defense. You said it, not me

  • piratefball172 Nov 24, 2012

    Tyler,

    Grow up man. I've never made any disrespecting comments about the Bears or their fans. Your team was the better team tonight. I didn't see the game because I was busy cheering my boys on in Garner. I hope you are not an adult. Win with class, lose with class. At the end of the day like stated before, you don't put on the pads and if The Bears are fortunate enough to get that ring (which I think they will) you won't get one. No one picked Jack Britt to come out East. I respected everyone's opinions and kept it moving. I guarantee the players could care less about the message boards. They don't need bulletin board material. If playing for a title isn't motivation enough then they shouldn't wear pads. The most any of us will get is a T shirt we paid for. Let it go

    RE: Which teams do you like to win the 4A & 4AA State Titles?
    I beg to differ on New Bern way too strong for Scotland. New Bern has a great offense, and I was at the PF/New Bern game. Love the offensive set, but the one weakness I think New Bern has is pass blocking. Pine Forest got lots of pressure on Josh. The one thing Josh is a great at is escaping pressure, and throwing on the run. Very few pass plays he stayed in the pocket due to PF's pass rush.
    Scotland has WAY better athletes on defense.

    RE: Which teams do you like to win the 4A & 4AA State Titles? You girls are quite the pair!! To be so "RICH" in tradition, you have the exact same amount of Rings as we do, 1! That should make us RICH too huh? Yes, Chip is gone, he finally came somewhere where he could ACTUALLY WIN before he hung it up. You guys ran your mouth alot last year too and you see where that got you. It seems you have'nt learned a thing. Like I said, if we meet, we'll show you how strong we are.

    Theu was on here telling people to show him respect. We runnin our mouth now, were you at? We haven't learned a thing I guess, but you guys did tonight! 6 points, is that how strong you are? LOL

    @Thanks Red&Black- The two best teams on the East Coast are playing today. I really think whoever wins this game should probably be considered the second best team in the state. Butler is the best team in the State. The loser of our game should be ranked third, while the winner should be ranked second. East Forsyth fifth and Mallard Creek, who should lose today to Butler, sixth. But Garner, who I think will beat Jack Britt, will be higher than seventh. But they would not beat any of the teams in my top six. Good luck Buddy and I hope you DONT enjoy the game. LOL.

    The Scots have just pulled off heading for the Bern. Expect a packed house because the Scots should bring about 5,000 to the game. New Bern posters should continue to enjoy their undefeated record because in about 9 and one half hours, the undefeated record will be a thing of the past. This is a promise coming from Komo. I do not speak for other Scotland fans. Just Komo.

    @csj2- That is fine. Everyone has their picks. I am not trying to change anyone's decision. If I did not know what the Scots are capable of and I was from Raleigh, I would pick New Bern. Looking at their scores and their win over a team that defeated us. I am not surprised at your pick. New Bern is a fine team that has dominated every team they have played this year. But so did Goliath. And yes, I am guaranteeing victory at New Bern. I did this back in week 4. I said we would be in New Bern. And I said we will win in New Bern, just like in the Boneyard, in Raider Stadium, and in Caruso. We will win in places were visiting teams just dont win. We are the Fighting Scots. And we still have a chip on our shoulders because we are always the underdog. We want to dominate. And we will.

    Don't see how you can "guarantee" a win against this New Bern team especially at their place. I'm sure it will be a great game but cannot see this as a slam dunk for Scotland. I have no dog in this fight but I'm going to predict--not guarantee-- a New Bern victory at home ;) Good luck to both teams

  • komoshaq307 Nov 20, 2012

    Our performance was good against EESmith. They were conference champs. They defeated the same Pine Forest team New Bern beat almost by identical scores. We played a conerence champ. NB has had it easy. Until Friday. We will see how they respond when the Scots jump all over them. New Bern cant handle speed. You have not seen speed yet. And New Hanover did not have that much speed. And R&B, aint no holding back Friday. You get the total package. And yes, Chargerfan will be hard to contain. He is so PUMPED.

    @bullcityvillage- When I guarantee, take it to the bank. Vegas has New Bern as 12 point favorites. I got the house on my boys from Scotland. I told Vegas I dont need 12 points. Give them to the Bears. Bear Meat November 30. Tailgate party in Chapel Hill. Bullcity, bring some of your Hornet players and coaches so the Scots can show you how to whip a Bear.

    @Tyler-Caruso is not ready for this. It has already been determined that your speed cannot keep up with our speed. Now dont use the New Hanover game as a basis for anything. If you are judging our performance against New Hanover, you are in for a shock. Now I am just trying to warn you because I dont want my message board buddies to go into shock Friday night. You boys one day will learn to take me a little more serious. Just because of the way I express myself on this board does not mean I am joking. I was not last year and I am not this year. The Scots are going to take over New Bern. I guarantee it.

Don't run to the bus, don't cover your head, come to the NB side and eat your crow! These NB boys are BAD!! You thought NH was big and bad? Ain't seen nothing yet boss man.

If I tell you tommorrow is Easter, run to the store and get your Eggs. Run to Belk and get you a Easter suit. The Buck stops here Bears. Its over. Just like Alabama and Oregon, you guys going down. And after the Scots whip your boys two in a row, I got one question for you. "Who's your daddy"?

    Just a thought. By winning the 2012 4A State Football Championship the Fighting Scots would be the first North Carolina team to win Back-To-Back State Titles with two different head coaches. Hmmmm.

    Yeah. I knew all the time. I was just going to see how far I could take it. Good luck. I really want to stay home. But I want to see Scotland-New Bern. And its only fitting that this year it will be in New Bern since last year the game was at Scotland. We will probably throw some more left jabs before Friday. LOL.
