I am admittedly not the biggest football fan in the state, be it NFL, College or High School, but it struck me that there were 31 high school games Thursday night in which one team scored zero points.
Several of the games had big scores by the winning team too, like:
Isabella 63, Central-Coosa 0
McGill-Toolen 59, Robertsdale 0
Sparkman 58, Albertville 0
Hatton 56, Tharptown 0
Mobile Chr. 55, Excel 0
Andalusia 50, Bullock Co. 0
Wadley 48, Donoho 0
Vinemont 44, Brindlee Mountain 0
Catholic-Montgomery 42, Slocomb 0
So what does a coach (winning OR losing!) say to his team after a lopsided score like that? "...this is just week three of the season, so there is time for improvement"?
And, by the way, in pro games:
The lowest possible score is 0-0 and has been achieved 73 times, though the most recent scoreless tie came on Nov. 7, 1943. The most points any team has scored in an NFL game is 73.
And other NFL record scores:
