  1. It’s hard to imagine Jasper even scoring against WO-S, assuming Cornell Thompson’s defense this year is one of his typical ones. And if Bellville is half as good as everyone seems to be saying, they’ll easily beat Rusk. WO-S vs. Bellville on Thanksgiving weekend appears to be a pick ‘em.
  2. What’s the problem, people? Carthage only beat Gatesville in the bi-district game last year by a single point, not 35 like last night.
  3. Is this a description of Bellville? I don’t know, I’m asking…so that I’ll know whether to pull for them or WO-S Thanksgiving weekend.
  4. BTW, for those of you who aren’t aware, Larry Allen was honored last month by being inducted into the Carthage Athletic Hall of Honor for his 30-plus years of being the Voice of the Bulldogs on KGAS. Having attempted some play-by-play announcing of Carthage football more than 40 years ago, I marvel at Larry’s ability to keep detailed statistics while also doing the play-by-play. Congratulations to Larry on this recent honor!
  5. Without a doubt. Larry puts a lot of time and effort into his role as the Voice of the Bulldogs.
  6. Thanks for pointing out my error. Serves me right for relying on Larry Allen…lol
  7. At #42, Gatesville ranks just below Madisonville (#38), which lost to Carthage just over a week ago 54-3. Yikes!
  8. This bi-district contest will take place in Athens Friday at 7:00 (not 7:30). These teams were matched up in the first round of the playoffs last year also. It was officially a 1-point victory for the eventual state champions, as Gatesville forfeited due to COVID. It will be nice to see these two teams actually get to match up on the field against each other this year. The winner will face the winner of the Orangefield-Sweeny game in the Area round.
  9. Based on the enrollments used in the last realignment, Carthage has 301 (58%) more students than Shepherd. That alone puts the Pirates at a big disadvantage before the game even starts.
  10. I’m addition to scoring a touchdown on every offensive possession, the Bulldogs scored on a pick-6 (King) and a punt return (Hatten) on the first half.
  11. Having never before played Carthage, the poor Kennedale lads didn’t have any idea what they were going to be encountering…lol
  12. Where does Gatesville rank? And Sweeny? And LaMarque?
  13. LE beat SH 21-15. If LE scored 18 points in the game’s last 2 minutes, that’s wild. What happened? A couple of SH turnovers?
  14. What is their season record? what is their most impressive win to-date?
  15. Anything of interest from yesterday’s Chalk Talk that can be disclosed here?
  16. I’m sure at least one of the two is a defensive lineman, as there was some discussion of him on this site last month. I believe he was #54. Who is the other one?
  17. Shepherd is winless in district play this year, and that isn’t likely to change. Shepherd lost to Center by 16; CHS beat the Roughriders by 46. Shepherd lost to Madisonville by 9; CHS beat that team by 51 last week. Shepherd lost to Jasper by 28; CHS beat Jasper by that many points. Shepherd lost to Rusk by 34; CHS defeated the Eagles by 21. All of the Carthage seniors should get playing time on Senior Night this Friday.
  18. If they transferred in from Henderson, please keep it to yourself. Lions70 might not be able to handle that news…lol
  19. Having seen Jasper’s offense, I think they have almost no chance of upsetting China Spring.
  20. Gatesville, unless they come from 13 points down tonight against Waco Connally
  21. Either of these would be a new team for Carthage to play, although Sweeny beat the Bulldogs in the baseball playoffs once or twice in the past few years.
  22. The first two rounds will probably be against Gatesville and…I’ll guess Silsbee. The Bulldogs seem to come up against them just about every year.
  23. As with almost all of your posts, I wholeheartedly agree. Hence, I started this thread without asking the typical question of “Who are you picking to win this one?”
  24. A “few games” means 50 or so, correct?
