    Is having Permian in the district you'll cover supposed to be a big deal?

    You'd be surprised at how many more resumes you pull in West Texas when you mention Permian. It's very strange.

    Thanks. I'm well aware.

    Permian hasn't been any good since then, either. And football-crazy high schools in Texas are a dime a dozen. This Permian obsession thing is ridiculous.

    Going 12-1 last year and reaching the third round isn't very good?

    Jesus. Chill out.

    Edit: Since the FNL season, Permian won state in 1989 and 1991. Went to the semis in 1994, second in 1995, quarters in 1998 the third round the last two years. That is very terrible for a high school football team.

    It can be seen as kind of ridiculous to some. But it's also a drawing point. Yes, football crazy towns are a dime a dozen in Texas but because of the book, there's tons of people who identify Permian football. So I can see mentioning that name getting more applicants.

    Jon Mark is not the SE any longer. He's been a metro columnist for about the last year or so.

    I know how much pride Mojo Land takes in those third-round playoff appearances. They really celebrate those out there.

    No state titles since 1991 probably irks them to the point where that third-round trip last season doesn't matter much.
