  1. Greetings and Salutations SPORTS FANS. I didn't get to attend Saturday's game but I THOUGHT I would have 3 choices on listening to the game. As someone said earlier, Homers, BIG HOMERS, or IDIOTS. Well I tried HOMERS first, you could barely hear Larry Allen in the booth, sounded like they were 30 yards away from the microphone. Then it went COMPLETLY OUT so that left me having to choose between GILMER broadcast or Gilmer-Lover Broadcast on 105.7. Tried Gilmer broadcast a bit since I was already on the internet until I couldn't stand it anymore and reluctantly went out to my pickup and tuned in 105.7. Weren't near as bad as what they have been in the past so it was tolerable. Anyways, I'm not going to say what Carthage's problem was in the first half. Many of you KNOW what the problem was it just seems no one wants to admit it. But I've seen Coach Surratt work miracles before so I hope he can do it again this season. Speaking of season...ed. These DAWGS are pretty salty now. Everyone knows if you want to beat Carthage you had better do it EARLY in the season before Surratt and staff have these guys running like pistons in a V-8. His teams are like small snowballs at the beginning of the season rolling down a large mountain covered with snow. Once that snowball gets to the bottom of the mountain it's as big as a house and knocks anything in its way OUT of the way. Now that these DAWGS have seen what they are capable of it's going to be tough for anyone to beat them. 90 % of it is the overcoming one's self and the belief that you are giving it all you have and are not capable of anymore. In Scott Surratt's system then they start learning field work and technical skills of their respective positions. Towards the playoffs they start mastery of their skills. This is what set Coach Surratt's teams apart...in the playoffs they are playing at College level ball usually.
  2. WOW, you almost nailed in on the head CRAWFORD
  3. Funny as heck, listened to second half of game on KYKX and ole Porkskin Bob and other character are freaking morons aren't they?? Dudes got Gilmer bucknuts so far up their rectum He couldn't resist saying "AND GILMER WINS 55-37!" as they ended their program. Looks like the Buckeyes got a blackeye. Way to fight DAWGS. Coach Surratt, classy as always. Showing the Upshur Rurals how to be classy but it won't help In the long run. You should have just punched it in.
  4. Yeah, that's they way they spell REDNECK in Center. You know they lead the state with unsolved murder cases too? Because they are NO DENTAL records and everyone has the same DNA!!
  5. Don't you mean looking for your second cousin in the cornfield? We know you CENTER guys like donkeys too. You know what you get when you spell CENTER backwards right?? R-E-T-N-E-C
  6. Waco La Vega 32 Carthage 3 last I heard. Going to concentrate on my brisket now. May the Football gods be with you DAWGS.
  7. Yep. Great season DAWGS. But you got a tiger by the tail on this one. These boys are good!!! And the reason why no respectable OC wants to go to Texas. These should be TEXAS commits.
  8. I'm afraid La Vega has the better talent tonight. Let's hope Surratt can find a way to slow them down and get some points on the board at least.
  9. ACTUALLY, most of this was NOT shot in the town of Carthage. Most of it was shot in or around Bastrop, Texas. But there are a lot of cut-to scenes that are of Carthage. When Jack Black is seen in the first of the film driving and singing he is actually going through a strip of Bastrop on highway 21 that burned during the drought of 2009 I think it was. The Welcome to Carthage sign he goes by was PLANTED there for the film. Very good movie and very true to what actually occurred as well for the most part. I didn't know Bernie Tiede personally because I was a member of the Methodist Church out in Deadwood and I was away in the Marines by the time this took place in 1997-1998. But it was a real shocker to hear of Mrs. Nugent found in her deep freeze I assure you! I actually broke the news to about 5 area newspapers and news outlets of them about to start filming the movie when I stumbled on an article about Richard Linklater filming it soon. Lots of the people in the film posing to be people from Carthage were actually people from Carthage. Except for that crazy older blonde gal, that was Matthew McConaughey's Mother. Got to see the movie debut in Carthage Twin Cinema and two of the actors (our friends in town) that were in the movie actually stood up after the movie was over and answered questions and told about their experience making the movie. It was truly awesome to get to hear about the inner workings of Hollywood. Poor Danny Buck Davidson (The prosecutor) sure took a LOT of flack about looking so much like Matthew McConaughey. LOL. (He didn't). And Yes that "HANDS ON A HARDBODY" event was a real BIG deal in Longview for a few years, prolly until Danny Buck pulled that criminal roundup gig with it. But I do remember hearing about them arresting people at it one year.
  10. Because Smoaky wanted to advertise that the show is going to be on the air and he made a new thread.
  11. Well after just taking a look at Celina's schedule it looks to me as though the toughest team Celina has faced was Monohans and Monohans didn't really have that tough of a schedule other than Argyle...Snyder>>>>? So I think this game is a toss-up now.
  12. Now I'll buy that one. L.E. appeared to have a real good team this year. Good luck Buckeyes!! However, I know you guys lost your Head 'Mechanic' this year and once you lose him the bolts start rattling eventually.
