I was going to go ahead and say the same thing, but I didn’t because I ain’t Argyle!😂

Correct.  For all the success we've had I try to remain humble.  I remember the down years.  When I was in school and we were in the old 4A,  seemed like we always got knocked out by the eventual stat

Don't wanna sound cocky but Yes, Yes, and No.

Is there anyone that watched the Rusk vs. Jasper game?  Just curious as to the details of that game. Jasper won 42-21 or something like that I believe?

Rusk was up 7-0 at the end of 1st. It was 14-14 at halftime. With 3 minutes left in the 3rd it was 21-20 Rusk. Jasper scored to go up 26-21 after 3 quarters. In the 4th Jasper had a strip sack and ran the fumble back for a TD and 2pt conversion to go up 34-21. I believe on Rusk’s next possession it was 4th and forever around their own 30 and the rugby punter tried to run with it and got nowhere. Jasper scored a few plays later plus a 2pt conversion to go up 42-21. Both teams subbed out for the remaining possessions. I know Rusk ran their last two series with the backup QB, RB, and receivers. 
The big O line and RB for Jasper pounded Rusk’s D all game. Jasper threw the ball 3 times and completed 2 but both were 40+ yards and one was a TD. 
It was a better game than the score indicated but Jasper controlled the LOS so well that it never felt like they were in danger of losing.

Thanks for the run down! Sounds like a pretty good game for most of the way.  If Jasper controlled LOS that well against Rusk I don't see Rusk putting up much of a fight in this one.

Things are starting to become pretty clear for playoff matchups. Looks like Carthage will play Gatesville in the 1st round. Then probably Silsbee in the 2nd round. Silsbee just can’t catch a break when it comes to playing Carthage in the playoffs. Have played them 5 times in the playoffs since 2012 and Carthage is 5-0 in those games. 3rd round game looks like either Salado or Bellville. Not too familiar with either. Then looks like in the 4th round Carthage would play WOS or Jasper unless something crazy happens.

With 7 minutes to go it was 26-21 Jasper and Rusk had a huge dropped pass while inside the Jasper 30 that would have made it 27-26 Rusk

The next 7 minutes skewed what was a back and forth game

We haven't been able to block anyone with size this year and it won't get better Friday. 

This will be Rusk’s biggest problem Fri.  Your QB could do some good with time but he won’t have any.  The Carthage front 7 will be the best you guys have seen all year.  Gonna be tough sledding.

Totally agree! It's been the same thing every game this year. Definitely, won't out athlete Carthage.

Correct.  For all the success we've had I try to remain humble.  I remember the down years.  When I was in school and we were in the old 4A,  seemed like we always got knocked out by the eventual state champ.  I remember losing to austin westlake at kyle field when I was in junior high.  My senior year we had state champ wilmer hutchins on the ropes and then they caused one turnover while we were about to score (it was a tied game at 0-0 late in the game ) and then they unleashed a flurry of points on us to send us packing.  Those were tough losses.

Most folks around the state call that the good ole days.

I also remember getting thumped in district play by henderson at our homecoming to the tune of something like 33-13....Not such good days.

If I could invent a time machine. Now Henderson just trying to score or avoid the game altogether.

So what the standings in this District. I assume Carthage, Jasper and Center have post season bid locked up or looks that way. Rusk and Madisonville getting the last spot. Shepherd petitions the UIL to get out of the District is kinda sad. Also who does Carthage get in Bi District . I bet no one wants to sneak in the playoffs in that District.
