    I watched the first half of Bullard vs Mineola.  Very entertaining game, especially the Pendergrass kid's performance.

    But Bullard doesn't have the athletes to matchup with Carthage regardless of scheme. Small on interior line will definitely affect ability to run their offense.


    Although I haven’t seen any of them this year, I imagine all the district opponents will have trouble running their offense against the Bulldogs’ defensive front. And with 3 of the front 4 being sophomores, this could be true for another couple of seasons.

    The 19 and 20 O lines were the absolute best. It will be hard for any Dawg O line to match them, but time will tell. 
    The 19 group averaged 308 pounds, they destroyed a great defensive front of LeVega in the state championship game. 20 was almost as good. 

    The 2009 group (Cutter Clinton, one of Kemmy Henderson's sons, et al.) also ranks up there.  They had several 3-year starters, as I recall.

  3. The biggest surprise to me about CHS thus far this season is the defense - specifically, the defensive line. All of last year’s starters on that unit were seniors and had to be replaced. Three of tonight’s four starters on that unit are only sophomores. They are doing a great job…and they should only get better.

    Cuff threw 35 passes in the first two games and completed 32. 
    Not sure where LNJ got their information. That means Cuff threw 27 passes in the third game and only completed 10, I will go back and look at my notes when I get back home  

    There is no way he missed that many passes in game three  


    Either the Panola Watchman or Larry Allen, the “ Voice of the Bulldogs “, had Cuff at 30-35 after the first two games. If LNJ is correct, he was 12-26 last week. I believe he started out 7-17 against Cornerstone. If so, that means he went 5-9 after that, which seems reasonable to me…but I could be wrong about last week.

    I believe Carthage would be a legit 4a D1 title contender as well. If they were in our division they would be a legit top 10 team.  Carthage vs Texas High would be a game to see as well. 

    I agree.  It would be interesting to see how the two teams match up.  Additionally, it would be fun to watch Coach Surratt's present school go against his former school, where he was Offensive Coordinator for a state championship team.

    I think I read where Marshall starts a true freshman at OT.  6’6 275.  Curious to see how he handles the athletic DE’’s from Carthage, especially on passing downs.  Inside will be big on big.


    Mavchamp or other knowledgeable Marshall fan,

    Is this true about a freshman starter at OT?  How many sophomores or freshmen start for the Mavericks?

    Both of their backs are talented backs. The freshmen RB that isn't on varsity yet is probably their most talented guy though. I'll be interested to see if he gets any playing time on varsity this season. Marshall has the potential to turn this into a fantastic contest this year.

    Of course everyone thinks Carthage is going to win. It's what Carthage does, and we've already established a large portion of Bulldog nation thinks Surratt is a god amongst all other coaches on the sidelines.

    As long as the turnover machine doesn't hit the Mavs again, Marshall should be in this going into late in the 2nd half.

    As Carthage also has a very talented RB (2nd fastest kid in the CHS program behind Noah Paddie), this week’s freshman game should be a football fan’s delight.

    I am really surprised at how well those sophomores have played, everyone knows the speed of varsity football is night and day different from JV on down. 
    You have to give a lot of credit to all those coaches from JV all the way down to seventh grade. They do a great job preparing them to play Dawg football. 

    Certainly, the sub-varsity coaches deserve a lot of credit.

    I found it interesting when I learned years ago that under Coach Surratt, all of the varsity staff, with the exception of the two coordinators and himself, were also assigned to work a portion of each day with the JV or freshmen.  Half of them worked with the JV and half with the freshmen.  I suspect this is still the case.  The win-loss record of the sub-varsity teams over the years is very impressive; it's not all because of the playing talent.

    Yes, Cuff’s progression as a QB continues and he’s making much better decisions.

    We can all see that on Friday nights, but seeing it on film adds so much detail.

    There are also lots of things we can improve on on both sides of the ball.  Not major issues just small tweaks in pass blocking and run blocking by the receivers.

    All in all, we’re nowhere near a finished product at this point in the season and we’re expected to continue to improve.

    Thanks for the report.

    With as many sophomores as are starting - 2 on offense and 3 (or 4) on defense - the team shouldn't yet be anywhere close to being a finished product right now.

  10. Carthage’s 2018 win over Marshall came 47 years after its last previous win in the series.  The Bulldogs’ 40-0 win early in the 1971 season turned out to be one of that season’s few bright spots for Coach Bill Brasher’s crew. CHS’s wishbone offense didn’t fool many of their other opponents, as they won only 1 district game in finishing 3-6-1. Believe it or not, the tie came in the season opener against the Longview Lobos. (Just had to somehow get their name back in this thread).

    That was a long time ago…PantherNation2015’s father-in-law was a senior on that Bulldog team.


  11. After two games:


    QB Connor Cuff is 30-35, an 86% completion rate.

    He has thrown for 546 yards, which is an average of 273 per game.

    His average completion has been for over 18 yards.

    He has 7 TD passes to 4 different receivers.


    WR Montrel Hatten has 10 catches for 197 yards (19.7 yards per catch) for 3 TDs.


    WR Noah Paddie has 10 catches for 182 yards (18.2 yards per catch) and 2 TDs.


    All 3 are seniors.

    Remember watching Morgan in that first game at Henderson and scratching my head because he was so small.  Could never have imagined how good he would be.

    You may be referring to his sophomore year in 2008, when he was a starting safety on CHS’s first state championship football team. Morgan played QB in the Henderson game that year when that year’s senior starter, Si Blackshire, was  out with an injury. CHS beat the Lions, their former arch-rivals, 33-3 that night.
