Those guys don't like how things are rolling now.  They don't even go to booster club meetings anymore.  They were true disciples.  Got preached to every Wednesday.  Now??? The DQ ain't the same anymore.

Hmm, okay. Well I guess times change. I knew I hadn't seen them on here in awhile. Kind of miss reading their posts. They could sure liven up a thread lol.

blackflag79 I am still here, I don't post as much as I did but I still support the Buckeyes as much as I always did.

Do you have a link to the game broadcast? The one I have does not work.

Gilmer up 34 to 14 and about to close the deal. I'm a little surprised but very happy. It ain't over but it's been a much better showing than last week.

Looking better just need to clean up all these unnessisary penalties that are killing us. Bunch of non-sense that should not have happened all night. Way too many flags. Got some tough games ahead of us and we can't play like that against stiffer competition. 

Good game though fellas and just keep driving. Them Buckeyes are looking stronger for sure.

A few quick observations:

1. Difference in the game was Gilmer defense. They had three red zone stops in the first half, and then tightened the screws in the second half. This defense is vastly improved from last year. 

2. Hurt played very well tonight. Glad to see him run tonight. It wasn't often, but just when the Van defense wasn't expecting it. He threw the ball well also. 

3. I like Smith running the football.  Bush is the starter and should be. He's a wrecking ball. Hope the injury tonight wasn't serious. But Smith has excellent acceleration. He seems to be patient enough to wait for the hole to open, and then he makes his cut and goes. 

4. Gilmer did have a lot of penalties tonight. They still need to clean that up. Hopefully the coaches will harp on that this week. 

5. There were a couple of drives tonight that were very impressive by Gilmer. They got Van on their heels, and they just attacked, ran the ball, and didn't give Van a chance to catch their breath. 

Good W for Gilmer. The schedule is about to get brutal for them. I'll be interested in seeing how they play the next 3 weeks.

I thought it would have been closer than this and it potentially would have had we not had 3 starters out with injuries and our big DE sick and not coming back the 2nd half. Having said that though, Gilmer does look vastly improved over last year as opposed to Van not quite up to speed yet even with all the starters. Hopefully everyone is healthy by district and we get the bugs ironed out. For Gilmer, the Bush kid is a beast that any defense is going to have trouble with. Going to be interesting to see how Gilmer and Paris match up.

Van is top 15 4A D1 team and with one or two wins could be a top 10 team. I would plan on a close game or your second half won’t be very enjoyable from the stress levels.  This one is a 6 point game either way.  Will likely come down to the last possession.  Van will kick the FG this year!

Van is no where near a top 10 team

Van still has lots of potential success.  Without the improved Gilmer defense, last nights game would have been much closer.

I did too. Looks like Gilmer may have figured something out. They still have some tough pre-district games against better opponents than they played the first 2 weeks. We shall see.

I told y’all it wasn’t gonna be close 

You were right. Congratulations on your buckeyes win. I was at the boring LE and Carthage game. I may have to go see the Paris and Gilmer game now. Where do they play?
