  1. Mavchamp or other knowledgeable Marshall fan, Is this true about a freshman starter at OT? How many sophomores or freshmen start for the Mavericks?
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Was there anything for public consumption at today's Chalk Talk at CHS?
  6. Sorry, I intended “8-9” to mean 8 for 9, not 8 wins & 9 losses. Also, “8-8” to mean 8 for 8, not 8 wins and 8 losses. My bad.
  7. The Bulldogs are 8-8 in state championship football games under Coach Surratt, 0-1 under Coach Sleepy Reynolds, and 8-9 overall.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. My prediction is that regardless of Friday night's results, there will be a lot more traffic next week on the Carthage-Marshall game thread on this site than there is on this one.
  11. 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.
  12. I forgot to add that Bogie was also the only three-year starter at QB during the Surratt era.
  13. Blake Bogenschutz was a starter as a redshirt freshman at UTSA until his career was ended by concussions. He was also voted by his teammates as a team captain…in his second year on the team.
  14. I believe he is still at Tulane. He was last year and got some playing time as a true freshman.
  15. Another 2-play scoring drive for CHS. This one goes 33 yards. Scoring play was a 22-yard reception by Noah Paddie. With 5:09 left in 1st quarter, CHS leads 21-0.
  16. TD reception of 46 yards for TE K.D. Bell.
  17. CHS scores in the first minute of play on a 60 yard pass to Montrel Hatten. It was a 73-yard drive consisting of 2 plays. CHS 7, PHS 0
  18. CHS injured safety will be replaced tonight against Pittsburg’s slot-T offense by a fourth linebacker. Three of the CHS starting defensive linemen tonight are sophomores.
  19. If right, you've got a scoop (as Howard Cosell used to say)
  20. El Campo has also knocked Carthage out of the playoffs twice during the Surratt era. The first time was in 2012, and the thought of it still hurts. 2014 was the other time; they were just better that year, which was probably Coach Surratt’s weakest team. BTW, I have nothing critical to say about El Campo.
  21. Looking at the current results, perhaps a poll wasn't necessary for this thread. Or maybe the Pirates should have been given some points!
  22. I read this last night in DCTF in an article about Dallas South Oak Cliff. Does it remind you any other team you're familiar with? "There's a swagger to the Golden Bears...they have a much more lax pregame routine that often contrasts the boot-camp style of some other top programs."
