I have no feelings my friend, as if as a Jasper fan I am not accustomed to losing to Carthage (along with everyone else who does). 

I am though sick of the now new "thing " of fake news aka lies. So rather than be part of it, take time to make time to find out for yourself about things.

I read the SETX thread on Carthage @ Jasper and think there was just one post about Carthage recruiting players.

Most of the posts were definitely respectful toward Carthage.

Jasper will be another quality opponent for CHS and help ready our Bulldogs for the playoffs.

lol. I gonna be honest I did not read the article. I will though take it one step farther. Since 1968 when Jasper beat Carthage 42-8  you know what that makes the head to head record for our schools 2

Congrats to them C Dawgs.  Typical Carthage team.  Another well oiled machine.  My best wishes to yall for the rest of the season. Just maybe, we can play yall again before the season is finished

Jasper has beaten everyone they played pretty soundly, you are correct, but they also haven’t played a team that’s got a record better than .500. They are going to have to be big and strong to be a ba

I read it and saw nothing besides respect from Jasper folks. The WOS poster was crying “recruiting” because he/she knows they will most likely get beaten by Carthage eventually this year. Lol

And we still won.  Per this article,  Jasper hasn't beat us since 1969. I guess you could say they're due.  I wouldn't bet on that though.

Since 1968 when Jasper beat Carthage 42-8  you know what that makes the head to head record for our schools 2-2. The two wins for yall coming the next 2 times we played after 1969.  Those years being 2012&2013.  lmao at how that post makes seem way different.

That said, in my 47 years of life I have been a all sports fan for as long as i can remember. During that time I have come to the realization there are times you just take your emotions out of it and tell it like it really is.

Are my DAWGS due? Sure they are,but it's 99.9% that won't get it this time around. Will I be there cheering them on. OF COURSE I WILL. Yes, I would love to be wrong about the out come.

Carthage the past decade or so has sky rocketed to levels that only fans of other schools (my self included) can only dream of.

THAT IS WHAT IT IS........

No arguments here.  No disrespect towards ya'll Dawgs whatsoever.  Jasper Dawgs claimed a state title before mine did...1990 if I'm not mistaken.  We just caught lightning in a bottle when Coach S.  came onboard.  All good things eventually come to an end,  including our amazing run over the last 10+ years. I would love nothing more than to kid myself that this will last forever,  but I'm a student of reality,which makes me face the fact it won't. May the best team win,  and hopefully everyone (both sides) comes out healthy.

I saw that too.  Still doesn't warrant me bothering to create an account there,  though I'm tempted.  When I saw it yesterday it appeared as though everyone else on there just ignored it.  There's always one idiot in every village.

never said all posts on the other forum were ugly.  one post suggested recruiting and there was chatter that Carthages success may be due to some oil boom in '07.  that theory would suggest some kind of unfair advantage Carthage may  have received.  sounded like sour grape excuses to me.  the simple truth is the Carthage school board did a great job in their coach pick and the community has some families that are pretty darn athletic.  one of the amazing things to me is that Carthage isnt a suburb of a metropolitan area and the kiids are pretty much from families that have been there for many generations.

let me help you out my friend.  Carthage's current coach took over in what year?

BOOM = 2007.

But you damn sure right about the unfair advantage though.

having probably the best highschool coach in Texas is an unfair advantage!

Take care!

Again, I didn’t say that anyone was making excuses. I responded to someone saying there were by saying “gotta love preemptive excuses.” It was a general statement. Never said “Jasper fans are already throwing out excuses!” It was a simple comment on someone’s post. Get over it. It’s not like I’m out here shouting stuff about Jasper. If you consider my comment fake news, then you don’t know what news is. There was no news in my statement.

Coach Surratt was untested as a head coach at the time Carthage hired him.  No way anyone could have imagined his successs.  your idea that the Carthage success is tied to an oil boom is grasping for anything.  Dont remember these kinds of comments coming up before any other Carthage game.  I wont continue this as I'm sure folks are getting tired.

Will jasper have a video stream of the game tonight?  

 

Carthage's stream is unreliable at best.  Just want to have another option if possible.

Not a Jasper fan, but watched the Vidor vs Jasper game on KJAS.  Naturally Jasper announcers, but for homers, they did a decent job.  Stream was good.

I never expect any home town announcers to not be homers for the most part. Haha. I just want to watch a stream that doesn't go down 4-5 times a game. 

Carthage's play by play guy isn't bad, but the "color commentator" I guess is what you would call him, he is as homer as it gets.

They both have been doing this gig for many years, and the play-by-play guy is super intelligent. No joke, he was an economics professor at Panola College for years. You talk about sharp with numbers and balancing a budget, personal or business..

Anyhow, really good family and he’s the nicest guy around.

The color commentary is also another very nice guy who is our favorite homer fan, ha!

That team has seen a lot of struggles and a lot of success from our Bulldogs and I think it’s been a lot of fun for them to call the games these last 13 years.

Now if we can get that live game feed to be as consistently good as the Dawg offense we’ll all be happy! 
 

Go Dawgs!!!!!!!!

the fake news is what you made a blind reply to. you said it yourself that you commented because of what house said and did not know for yourself. 

that being my whole point had you known the WHOLE story I bet my house you and I wouldn't have had this delightful conversation.

Take care!

yes, for you not continue would be best, because you don't get it what so ever.

1 + 1= 2

BOOM WAS A REFERENCE TO THAT GREAT COACH CARTHAGE HIRED!

meaning when they hired him the program took off!

meaning they hired him 2007 and they were referring to him being the boom. 

House, you should really try seeing things thru rose colored glasses.
