You guys amaze me, you really do. You can talk as much trash as you want about Corsicana beating Ennis, but the fact is great teams are not measured on how they do in the regular season, ask the Buffalo Bills, they are measured on how they fair in the playoffs and how many CHAMPIONSHIPS they win. And I really do think a large majority of Corsicana people would rather beat Ennis then win a state title. I have heard Hennigan say that one of his biggest obstacles is getting rid of that attitude in the town and program, he said something to this affect, Its not a Super Bowl, but a lot of people in this town sure do think it is. So continue stating your win-loss record against Ennis, and your HEYAIO sayings, and printing up T shirts, and Ennis will continue to win rings.
Your are exactly right in everything you posted. Great teams are measured on playoffs and SC. I've never contested as to the greatness of your program during Harrells run. Obviuosly our record over the last five years includes short play-off runs.
One very important line needs to be drawn. What the people in Corsicana want and the goals of the team are two different things. I seriously doubt anyone is nieve enough to believe that Henigan, Berry, Wilson, Denbow, etc. ever had agenda that included anything other than state championships. The people of Corsicana sit in the stands and the teams play the games.
All I can say is this, the notions that you have about Corsicana and beating Ennis spur from Ennis's success. I've said it before, only a hand full of people will get a chance to play one of the most successful programs in Texas's modern era. So do me favor, please quit acting like you can't understand why we are so passionate about this game. Heaven forbid you embrace this rivalry which is clearly built out of the respect and state championship that you've earned, and instead brush it off as just another game.
So if we're making blanket comments here, let me make one.
I have to beleive the people of Corsicana have an extreme passion for this game because it seems the people of Ennis, look right passed us as just another game.
On a side note, I don't care if we go 4-6 in the regular season, as long as we win the SC. I've posted on here because I like to argue. I've been told I'd agree with a possum.
