  1. From what he has said on his show (and this is not unique to Gilmer, I'm sure), Coach Metzel "takes what the defense gives him." That's his play-calling philosophy in a nutshell (pardon the pun). The way to shut down Gilmer's offense (ahem, Coach Preston...Carthage) is to make the ground game an impossibility and keep us behind the chains. If you can't do that, it's probably going to be a long night.
  2. A narrow definition of East Texas is anywhere pines grow in the wild. There are broader definitions, but in terms of population, it is a very small percentage of the state. So even having only one team out of a dozen playing would still be proportional to our share of the Texas population and maybe even more than proportional.
  3. It is not always a good idea to force Brandon out of the pocket. Time will tell. Celina, being a D1 team already by the numbers, is the solid favorite in this game, but they still have to play it.
  4. The good news/bad news, considering whether you like the matchup, is that this is the last time these two teams will ever meet in the playoffs. It's similar to the Gilmer-Argyle third round playoff game in 2013 at Kincaide Stadium in that respect.
  5. You'll know you've made the big time when they stop calling you China Springs.
  6. Congratulations to your kinsman. He played a helluva game tonight.
  7. You are a very verbose and imaginative writer, but you lost me. As what? Another patsy opponent like Kent State? That's what it'd be at this point.
  8. I think a lot of people probably figured out immediately who buckeyefandom is.
  9. 17-0, Gilmer at the half
  10. I want my money back. This game was not entertaining at all.
  11. He doesn't sound afraid at all. He thinks it should have been 35-0 by halftime if I heard him right.
  12. In 2018, Pleasant Grove shut out Gilmer, 14-0, in Gilmer.
  13. I saw this game online. I think Celina will be Gilmer's semifinal opponent (if we make it that far). I suppose the only stumbling block would be Graham, but I don't see them taking Celina out two years in a row. MaxPreps had Melissa as the second-ranked team in D1 and Celina as seventh in D2. They got it backwards.
  14. I heard from a somewhat reliable source that Gilmer High School had 80 more students enrolled on the first day of 2021 compared to first day of 2020.
  15. Wrong year. It wasn't until 2017 in Gilmer. In 2016, Poppy Brown and the Bux handled PG fairly easily. https://gilmerbuckeyes.blogspot.com/2016/10/gilmer-31-pleasant-grove-10.html
