  1. The good news is that both of those games are definitely winnable.
  2. I think Jasper may stay in the game through most of the first half, but Carthage wears them down in the second half and pulls away. I don't really predict scores but I think Carthage wins by at least 20. Just my opinion.
  3. I guarantee that the Bulldogs win this game! Any takers?
  4. I don't think any kind of Jobu spell is gonna change anything. He already rolls it to BT about half the time...
  5. Just wake me up when the Buckeyes have the ball...
  6. I concur, this game will likely be a blowout, but the Buckeyes have a lot of stuff to work on. I just hope they play four good quarters instead of two.
  7. I'm anxious to see how the Buckeyes respond after getting beat by Carthage. I hope it woke them up to the fact that they can't get off to slow starts against ANYBODY and expect to come out on top every time. They absolutely HAVE to improve defensively, and it's imperative that they don't get themselves in a hole early like they have every game this year. The longer you let teams you should be beating soundly stay in the game the more confidence it gives them. I would love to see the defense step it up and improve each game, and the offense has to stop putting themselves in 2nd and long, an
  8. Football is all about matchups. Gilmer didn't have the physical size and strength in the trenches to match up with Carthage. Carthage dominated in the trenches, hence the blowout. Gilmer had some chances but kept making mistakes on offense. The Buckeyes didn't have an answer defensively for the Dawg offense, though. I think PG matches up better with Carthage physically, but I just don't see them being able to consistently stopping the Dawg offense, nor do I see them sustaining many scoring drives. Unless the Dawgs turn the ball over a few times, I think Carthage pulls away, especiall
  9. To be the best you have to beat the best, and that's why we schedule Carthage. Back in the Traylor era, we wouldn't schedule a team in pre-district if there was a chance we would meet them in the playoffs. Win or lose, this is a good matchup for both teams. I would absolutely love to see the Buckeyes win this one. We have a lot to clean up to get where we need to be as a team. If we do somehow beat the reigning champs, will it signify that the Buckeyes are back to the contender level? I think so. There's really only two teams on our schedule in the past 4 years that have been on the
  10. I wholeheartedly agree. It's either fix the snaps, or find somebody who can. I'm pretty sure he is getting a healthy dose of snap practicing in. He has gotten better, but it still happens a little too often for my taste.
  11. I do think the Buckeyes will win, but it won't be a cake walk like some seem to think, unless they fix some of the mistakes they have been making. The mistakes that are obvious are the continual bad snaps which throw the timing of plays off, fumbles on special teams, and some penalties at inopportune times. The defense usually starts slow by giving up a lot of yards, but at least they do make adjustments at halftime that actually work. The good news is we are 3-0 even with the mistakes, and if they are fixed, we will definitely be a contender for a district title and more.
  12. Gilmer had 3 TDs called back in this game. They eventually scored on all of those three drives, but the penalties were definitely a problem and needs to be cleaned up.
  13. i would definitely be surprised if it were that close. I think it would say more about Gladewater than it would for Spring Hill, because, for whatever reason, it seems like the Bears seem to have some bad games every season in the past. I don't think that will happen under Jonny's watch. I think the Bears will be much more consistent throughout the season now.
