  1. And you won't see a defense like that again. The best defense I've seen since is 2015 Katy, but they weren't even close to doing what that '83 Daingerfield team did. Add in the 1980 Pittsburg Pirates and the 1975 Big Sandy Wildcats to the list if you want to include inside their own classification. It's all subjective anyway. Other states don't have to follow UIL rules. Most of those schools on the list can legally recruit players, making it an uneven playing field when comparing them to Texas teams.
  2. My vote goes to this year's team overall. This year's defense was by far the best I've seen of any of their previous teams.
  3. I don't know about "grown folks" talking on here a lot of these times. Think TCU44... ...but I agree with you on the rest.
  4. The Bulldogs are looking a little this when they know they have to play Gilmer again.
  5. This is a game for the state championship. I don't think "billboard material" is needed. If you're not motivated enough already you have not given the game enough thought. We already know what Carthage brings to the game. It's not rocket science. Gilmer will have to play out of their mind to stay within striking distance. The Buckeyes will have to establish offensive rhythm against the best 4A defense in the state, while getting several stops defensively. I like what the new coaches are doing at Gilmer. I think we will be very good for as long as we have them. I hope the Buckeyes
  6. Where is TCU44 when you need him? All we need is for him to pick Carthage to win and we're assured a Gilmer win. Both teams worked very hard to get here, and deserve the opportunity. It's been a long time since these two teams met in Week 5. I know both teams have improved since then. If Carthage has improved "as much" as Gilmer has, all I can say is "uh oh!" I'm just hoping we can put 4 quarters of our best football together for this one. If we don't we will likely get blown out of the building. I would absolutely HATE to see that happen. Honestly, I think this is the best Ca
  7. We're still getting ahead of ourselves a little. Graham ain't no slouch of a team obviously. Our focus is only on the Steers, and that's where it should be. By the way, Pigskin Preps has Graham as a 2-point favorite.

  9. Not all Buckeye fans think that way, mike. Carthage is actually on a whole other level than any 4A team in the state. It will take for Carthage to have a few turnovers, penalties, and also near perfect play by any team left to compete with them. I think because of the familiarity, though, that Gilmer would play them better than the other two teams that are left. "Extra prep" had nothing to do with their win against Gilmer earlier in the season. The Buckeyes were outmanned in that match up. Maybe a little more experience will help the Buckeyes play them closer than the earlier match up, b
  10. Man, I guess I'm just old school. I like paper tickets much better, not to mention they're much quicker than scanning a phone. I think the Buckeyes will do whatever it takes to win. If the offense gets into a good rhythm early, I think the Buckeyes start pulling away. It's good to see the "Black" back in the Black Flag Defense. A good rhythm offensively and a few stops defensively is what it will take. I like that there weren't as many penalties in the CM game. That's a good sign. There's still points being left on the field. All the teams from here on out are very good. We just have
  11. That sounds good to me. Maybe we can make Carthage sweat at least a little if we both get there.
  12. Gilmer 38 Caddo Mills 14 Final The Buckeyes totally dominated the game, as did Carthage.
  13. Thanks for chiming in. I was wondering if a Hawk fan was going to break it down from their viewpoint. I know when we played y'all, BT had a couple of INTs -- 1 in the PG end zone, and another in the PG red zone. He made a couple of poor decisions in that game, but he settled down in the second half and started using his legs and arm to move the ball down the field. Our defense made some halftime adjustments and made it extremely difficult for the Hawk offense to consistently move the ball, save the one Hawk drive where there was a fumble recovery by Gilmer that was given back to th
