  1. The stadium is no longer an issue. Probably one of the best HS stadiums you will find anywhere
  2. Take the regions out of the mix in the first round of the playoffs and let the 3rd and 4th place teams in Regions 2&3 play 1st and 2nd place teams in regions 1&4. There might be 30% of the teams in regions 1&4 left after one week.
  3. I’m not a Carthage fan and I understand people get excited when the colossal giant is defeated but you’re the poster child for a bad winner. If you handle success poorly it makes people think you haven’t had it before. Just saying. BTW if you say “blowing smoke up your team’s ...” that’s a collective group so it’s a singular “butt”. If you’re talking about multiple teams then “butts” would be correct.
  4. At this point any team that doesn’t come out and play their best game all season will be playing their last game of the season. I believe Carthage will be the best team on the field regardless of the opponent but there are teams this year, including China Spring, good enough to beat them if they don’t bring their “A” game.
  5. Bellville’s defense is underrated but their offense is “as advertised”. This should be a good matchup. I don’t see anyone outside of Carthage keeping Bellville’s backs contained. BB by 14.
  6. Let’s not. I’m all for supporting our District teams but I’d rather not play Carthage again. I will pull for my Eagles being in the Regional finals against any other team if you’d like to join me.
  7. I didn’t think it was possible for a Bulldog fan but I don’t believe you realize how good the Carthage defense is actually. Any other team get 7 turnovers against we would score 60+ Much like Carthage’s offense is good enough to win any game because of their defense. Rusk’s defense is plenty good enough for us to win because of our offense.
  8. Yes, you are correct. I don’t know what I was thinking. Rusk beat Salado by 7 which is all that matters. Just so you’re aware, if we (or any team) win every game by 1 point for the rest of the year we will be the State Champion . It’s so weird how the playoffs work. It’s like all of your games before don’t even count anymore.
  9. The only thing those 7 turnovers made me think was Carthage will have to overcome their QB to win it all. Just so you know Bellville is not Carthage. They have great backs but they will have to stop our offense as well. Carthage and Jasper are the only teams who have been able to so far. I believe we can play with anyone in 4A. Sorry to disappoint you but if Bellville is looking at WOS we will send them home next Friday with an L
  10. I wish that could be true. I love my Eagles but there is no way we can beat Carthage. I also believe our chances are as good as any team in 4A, Slim to none and slim has left the building. As far as Celina and Gilmer getting beat it’s kind of irrelevant. The time will be one minute after midnight with Surratt and his evil stepsisters waiting for any Cinderella that gets by those two. Just saying
  11. I was being sarcastic. As I pointed out in an earlier post China Spring has zero chance to beat Carthage.
  12. That’s not very nice. Are you wanting the Eagles to bounce China Spring before y’all play them?
  13. I have no doubt Center will put Rusk in their place in two weeks. A district record of 3-2 will lock the Eagles in 3rd place.
  14. That is correct. I don’t know who will be sitting by who but it will be CS’s last game of the season.
  15. Going 12-1 is a really good year and something to celebrate. Congratulations
  16. Exactly! If the ball is tipped or forced in a tight window and gets picked it’s unfortunate but understandable. When a QB throws it right to a defender he either isn’t seeing the coverage and or he’s confused which is an indication of a defense doing their job. I don’t know where you get your stats but I’ll wait for official numbers.
  17. Carthage is by far the better team but you are delusional if you think Rusk’s defense had nothing to do with Carthage’s offensive performance in the first half. We did well enough against the run to force passing situations gave enough different looks to cause the QB issues. Whether you want to admit it or not we’ve got a pretty good team and I guarantee we won’t be an easy out in the playoffs.
  18. I never understood that decision. Hatten is a match up nightmare for a big corner 1 on 1 and put a 5’8 freshman on an island with him. Never had a chance.
  19. 14-35 Carthage Final. Proud of my Eagles. Good Job and Good Luck Carthage
  20. Rusk fumble. 14-28 Carthage 2:47 left in 3rd
  21. 14-20 Carthage 5:01 left in 3rd
