  1. I saw this game online. I think Celina will be Gilmer's semifinal opponent (if we make it that far). I suppose the only stumbling block would be Graham, but I don't see them taking Celina out two years in a row. MaxPreps had Melissa as the second-ranked team in D1 and Celina as seventh in D2. They got it backwards.
  2. I heard from a somewhat reliable source that Gilmer High School had 80 more students enrolled on the first day of 2021 compared to first day of 2020.
  3. Wrong year. It wasn't until 2017 in Gilmer. In 2016, Poppy Brown and the Bux handled PG fairly easily. https://gilmerbuckeyes.blogspot.com/2016/10/gilmer-31-pleasant-grove-10.html
  4. Agreed. Not to take anything away from the legendary Jeff Traylor, but Gilmer in the mid-2000s before the "District of Doom" days was in some very low "power rating" districts. I well remember one night in that era when we were playing a district game against Sabine there. Bux got the ball back with less than two minutes before the half, having already scored about six or seven touchdowns. Gilmer "O" decided to see if they could execute the two-minute drill and score again right quick. Done. No problem. As the game finally ended an hour or so later, the few Sabine partisans left in the sta
  5. Correct. Stump led the Bux to the state championship game in his sophomore year, only to be routed by Liberty Hill in Waco. That should have been the last time Gilmer ever agreed to play in Waco (also the site of a state championship game loss in 1981), but they went to the well one more time in 2016, losing to Sweetwater in the semifinals. I don't think the game in 2008 was as close as the original poster seems to think it was. As I recall (and have verified by reading Joe Dodd's archived game account), Carthage had the game well in hand with a 31-14 lead and Gilmer rallied back to make th
  6. Gilmer won 18-15 in 2015 in the KYKX Game of the Week at Lobo Stadium.
  7. I think you have this school confused with nearby Nevada Community. The only time we ever played Caddo Mills was in the Area round in 2017 in Sulphur Springs.
  8. Terry made one mistake. Gilmer and Sunnyvale have only played each other once before - in 2018. The 2017 playoff game against a team from that general area was against Caddo Mills.
  9. Why is the game in Texarkana again? That's where it was last year.
  10. Hmmm. What might have changed in 2015?
  11. Brent Goudarzi was in attendance and is the only person I personally know who has enough bread to match his current salary. I think he always planned to go into college coaching, though. You can't go home again and all that.
  12. You won by a fairly good margin in 2017, but the woodshed game was 2018. That was Gilmer's worst margin of defeat since the 1970s. https://etsn.fm/carthage-throttles-gilmer-66-14/
  13. I like the stadium down there. My only complaint was that the Henderson band was obscuring a clear view of the videoboard. It reminded me of 2011 IIRC when they decided to sit behind the south end zone at Buckeye Stadium. I remember Jeff Traylor being livid about that. Speaking of past Gilmer-Henderson games, this never gets old. R.I.P. Coach Meeks BTW.
  14. I call "sandbagging" on this one. Only 11 can play on each side. Plus, it is supposed to be relatively cool by Friday night. Any advantage Argyle has from depth is offset by PG's home field advantage. MaxPreps' power rating of PG (highest in all of 4A and 12th highest in the state) is five points above Carthage's and 11 points above Argyle's (if it's any consolation, the Eagles do have the highest rating in Division I, two points above Lampasas). PG is the clear favorite. An upset would be rather shocking, I would say. In fact, in any game they play other than the Carthage one, that
