  1. Interesting…but no mention of Region 1. They will have a team playing in the semifinals.
  2. Isn’t it the Ragin’ Cajuns, the school in Lafayette, rather than ULM?
  3. CHS under Surratt has played a few games on Saturday. China Spring at The Star in 2016 and Giddings in Corsicana in 2008 are a couple of examples.
  4. The Van Alstyne Panthers are 7-4, with only 1 win over a team that is now over .500. They have won 6 of their last 7 games. VAN ALSTYNE Lost 36-39 to Pottsboro, a 3A D1 team that beat Gladewater 33-14 in bi-district Thursday Won 30-26 over Frisco Lebanon Trail, a 5A D1 team that was 1-9 this season Lost 25-68 to Anna, a 4A D1 team that is currently 11-0 Lost 15-45 to Sulphur Springs, a 4A D1 team that was 7-4 and lost its bi-district game last night to Dallas Carter 33-37 Won 32-27 over Krum (3-7) in the district opener Won 52-35 over Sanger (7-4), which lost its bi-district game last night to undefeated Caddo Mills 55-69 Lost 14-35 to Aubrey (9-2) in the game that ultimately determined the district championship Won 53-10 over Farmersville (2-8) Won 38-13 over Bridgeport (4-6) Won 65-18 over Gainesville, which won its 5th game of the season last night 35-24 over Sunnyvale in bi-district Won 55-28 over Quinlan Ford (5-6) last night in bi-district The Panthers average scoring almost 38 points per game. They allow more than 31 points per game.
  5. How many freshmen suited out for CHS last night, and how many got to go into the game? Names and positions would be appreciated.
  6. Second sign that a bi-district game isn't going to be competitive: when the second biggest topic is where to dine before the game
  7. Sign that a bi-district game isn’t going to be competitive: when the biggest topic is whether the freshman QB, who has never suited up for a varsity game, will suit up and make his varsity debut.
  8. Did the Panthers really give up more than 61 points to the Pirates? Lol
  9. Pirates have scored an average of 23 points a game. Pirates have given up an average of 33 points a game.
  10. PITTSBURG PIRATES (2-8) LOST to Mount Pleasant 16-22 - 1 of only 2 wins for the Tigers LOST to Carthage 22-51 - bi-district preview LOST to Tatum 28-42 LOST to Frisco Independence 13-24 LOST to Anna 12-47 - 1 of 3 undefeated teams the Pirates have played WON over North Lamar 31-12 - ultimately the game that put the Pirates in the playoffs LOST to Pleasant Grove 0-35 WON over Spring Hill 61-14 LOST to Liberty-Eylau 30-41 - Pirates had a lead late in the game LOST to Gilmer 14-44
  11. Didn’t Quinlan Ford beat Bullard 42-35 in Week 3?
  12. When these two teams met in the second week of the season, CHS won 51-22. CHS led at halftime 45-0. The Bulldogs' starting offense was taken out in the next-to-last series of the first half and didn't return for the remainder of the game. CHS QB Connor Cuff threw for 217 yards and 3 TDs in less than a half. He had 8 completions on 9 attempts. The incompletion was a dropped pass. CHS WR Montrel Hatten had 87 receiving yards in less than a half.
  13. Other than 1971 & 1972, my late dad did the play-by-play in the 70s. The man sitting beside him to provide analysis changed from time to time; one of them was the late Jack Roberson. In 1971 & 1972, when I was a student at Panola Junior College, I did the play-by-play with Dad providing the analysis and keeping the stats. Just as during all three of my years playing, the Bulldogs had losing records during those two years. That was a long time ago!
  14. Have you noticed they never fail to correctly identify Noah Paddie when he has the ball? Perhaps that's because their boss is Noah's grandfather...lol
  15. The Bulldogs haven’t trailed for a single second thus far this season. Starting QB Connor Cuff hasn’t taken a snap in the 4th quarter of the last 9 games.
  16. Carthage hardly ever runs two plays in a row from the same formation. If their opponent has a weakness (or weaknesses), Coach Surratt will find it (them) and attack it (them). He has enough “riverboat gambler” in him to keep the opposing defense continuously guessing about what’s coming next. He is a master at making adjustments…and that’s not confined to halftime. His offense can both run and pass at an elite level, leaving the opponent to have to “pick their poison”. He insists that his team always play hard. I suspect any defensive coordinator who has had to face his offense would echo and expand on the above.
  17. If Coach Surratt and his staff had been coaching Henderson that year, the Lions would have won state.
  18. They have the potential to be in the top 3 or 4…but it all depends on what they do from here. I think the 2008, 2017, 2019, and 2020 teams rank at the top. The 2008 team, the first state championship team, probably didn’t have the defense the others did (including this year’s), but they had Dwight Smith at RB, and he was unstoppable. Keaontay Ingram was the RB on the 2016 & 2017 state champions, and he is now in the NFL. The 2019 & 2020 teams had O-lines that averaged close to 300 pounds per man. Arguments can -and probably will - be made for others.
  19. Win #200 for Coach Surratt - quite an accomplishment!
  20. I imagine we’ll see that play again this season…maybe multiple times!
  21. I doubt we’ll see that play again this season.
  22. I believe Van’s varsity QB this year is a sophomore… and his dad is the head coach. Sounds like an interesting situation shaping up.
  23. Yes, he was the Offensive Coordinator after Coach Chris Smith (Smitty) left for Southlake Carroll to work for Riley Dodge. Last month, Coach Mac was posthumously inducted into the Carthage High School Athletic Hall of Honor. He coached there for 37 years. Prior to his death, he was also inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fames of both his high school in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and his college, Angelo State University. At the time of his induction into the latter, he was only the second basketball player ever so honored. Full disclosure: Coach Mac was my brother-in-law.
  24. After the second of those 2 consecutive losses, the Bulldogs went on a 40-game winning streak. Liberty Hill snapped that streak in the 2018 state semifinals. Carthage then went on a 41-game winning streak before losing last year to China Spring. They are 90-2 since losing the first 2 district games in 2016.
