    From an outsider’s perspective, I think what BF79 is trying to say is the OC either tries to get too cute with the plays by being unpredictable, or he is dead set on a script of plays even if the defense is playing differently than expected.  

    Against teams like SH and NL, it doesn’t matter what play Gilmer runs it will be successful.  Not so much vs teams like China Spring or Carthage.  It appears in those games that if plan A goes to hell, there is no adjustment to plan B.

    They will be the first to tell you, the first 15 or so offensive plays are scripted regardless of what the defense is. They watch enough film to script those plays and will not change them even if the defense changes. Not sure why? Stump used to call the plays himself and adjust on the field. Perhaps they are so scripted and vanilla on offense because of the Soph QB? He can play the position, just seems like the play calling or lack of isn’t helping him.

    🤦🏼‍♂️ literally amazing how soft we’ve become 

    I think it’s more due to these being actual storms, not just rain. Thunder, lightning and possibly hail is a whole different story. Lots of Senior night festivities for some will probably not happen, not to mention the possibility of lightning delays. Makes sense to move the game up a day if possible to avoid all this.

    Not as hard to listen to then Gilmer's announcers for their live streams I bet. All you hear is how fast Will Henderson is and the other usual 3 to 4 players LOL

    Two things:

    1. If I can’t make it to the game, I’ll watch the live stream, just with no sound! I can’t listen to them talk the whole game.

    2. Will Henderson IS fast

    Does Van win this? I think so. Is Paris down this year or is it just the schedule they've played?

    Paris is down this year. Very young team. Van should win this game fairly easy.

    I thought was still supposed to be pretty good.

    SAC played decently against us last season, did they lose a lot of players from last year?

    No idea really. They come in at 1-1, offensively they seem to be struggling. Plus an awfully long way to play Carthage. The Dawgs are starting to get it going. I just don’t think this game will be close.

  6. Gilmer’s homecoming is Friday against Paris. Not sure what is going on in Paris, they normally are a handful with great athletes and tons of speed. They seem down a tad from past teams, against LE, they didn’t have that many players suited up? Thoughts?

    I would have posted during the game but had ZERO reception on the field.

    Kilgore improved from the Carthage game. Bulldog passing game improved, but there were three in-the-hands dropped passes in the first half that would moved the chains. No touchdowns, but first downs. 

    While the passing game looks good, it doesn’t seem to be the balanced offense we’ve seen the last two years. 

    D line looks great. 


    Agree. Kilgore will be fine. The DL, which is their strength, played great! The secondary played good, but the Gilmer receivers just made the plays. 

  8. We know Kilgore is a run heavy team, but how is the passing game? They will get yards on the ground, but I think they will need to be able to pass, especially if they fall behind. Again, I’m praising the Buckeye secondary, if you can’t pass effectively or be accurate, I wouldn’t try it. A lot of CH’s rushing total came from the QB scrambling and just flat out making positive yards out of nothing. I wouldn’t think the Kilgore QB is as fast or agile as the CH QB??

    How bad will Gilmer SMOKE Kilgore, you ask. I didn’t see Gilmer’s first game, but I saw Kilgore’s. They have the athletes to avoid being smoked by Gilmer or anyone else remaining on their schedule. However, if they don’t make some adjustments in defending the short, quick pass toward the sideline, they’ll get beat again this week. Carthage got at least 7 yards every time they ran that play; Kilgore never made an adjustment, from what I could see.

    Yeah, I don’t like the title of this thread. Little early to start with the arrogance if you ask me. CH has a very good team, but those turnovers really hurt them. That game was closer than the score indicated. The 4 picks were legit, the Gilmer secondary is very good and a strength of their defense. The 3 CH fumbles probably could have been avoided. Seemed the QB was trying to run before securing the ball, plus both teams had several high snaps. Kilgore D line will definitely be a test for the Buckeye offense. Could be a low scoring game. Gilmer will need to come out with energy and be focused, if they do, I think they will win by a couple of scores.

    DCTF has Gilmer favored ….. that’s bizarre 

    I just watched the show and Greg actually picks CH to win for a couple of reasons. 
    1. The CH offense returns a lot. 
    2. Says Gilmer’s QB situation isn’t settled yet. Will they find a replacement for B Tennison?

    Well, Gilmer’s QB situation IS settled and has been for years! C Tennison, Brandon’s brother will be starting QB. He’s been groomed since Jr High for this moment. He’s a Soph, so will he be ready? I don’t know. He played Varsity as a Freshman primarily on defense, but he did play a little QB in the 4th qtrs. and was 2-3 60 yds 1 td. while rushing for 307 yds (9.3 ypc). He can definitely step into the starting role as he’s had both Stump Godfrey and his brother working with him for years. My question is still, can the OL work together and give him time? If so, he will put on a show. I bet the playbook will be very conservative this first game. Let’s not forget, Gilmer returns several running backs, including all state Haynes. Look for them to establish that run early and then let Tennison do his thing. I believe Gilmer’s defense overall is better than CH at this point. Hopefully CH challenges the Gilmer secondary as they return 2 all state players. Just looking for an exciting game with no injuries. Regardless of the outcome, both teams will be better because of this game!
