  1. The PG that had 18 yards against Gilmer’s D? They are 1 dimensional. Carthage is too well coached to EVER get beat by a 1 dimensional team. Gilmer was effectively 1 dimensional offensively tonight with a QB who has never played QB. And this was a 1 score game with 6:00 min left and a totally blown INT call. Carthage is playing basketball Monday if Gilmer had a QB like they have the last 2 years. Rumors that Scott has said this is the best team he has coached? LMAO. That team 2 years ago was by far and away light years better than this team. Connor was the difference in this game tonight, and he has developed a TON since last year. Nobody touches Carthage this season. Ring #9 awaits fairly easily. If thens, wishes and nuts… etc. Gilmer has tons of talent. Carthage is Carthage. They develop their talent better. Congrats and go get #9. Gilmer has a chance if they had gotten a fair shake tonight. Would it have mattered? Who knows. But they passed their one and only test this year. Cap tip.
  2. Great game Carthage. As always, great program, maximized their talent and deserves to win the game. That said, the UIL can find ways to allow 2-3 win 4th place teams to “make the playoffs” (follow the $), but CANNOT figure out how to seed a tournament properly, (no way this was anything less than a Championship caliber game), or find officials who blow calls this badly. It is an embarrassment. The UIL makes MILLIONS state wide off the backs of these kids. And this is the level of “fairness” they get? Seriously? And if Carthage loses in the playoffs with a call THIS BLATANTLY BLOWN on a possession in the 4th quarter in a one score game, I would be agreeing with any arguments they would be making about a game changing call. It doesn’t get much worse than this.
  3. This will be the state championship game. It will be an absolute bare knuckle brawl. Unfortunate that this game happens in round three. It is certainly an advantage for whoever gets the winner, because both teams will feel this one like no other this season. Carthage has not seen on film what they will see Friday. And this years Bulldogs squad is very, very good. But this contest will be on another level. Think Gilmer / Gladewater 2014… but the winner will have to survive to get to the ring. The rest of the state is laughing… along with the UIL. And if you guys in Austin are reading this board? You suck. Period. Playing this game in week 3 is a travesty. Buckle up. This is gonna be a car wreck.
  4. Smart $ is simply focused on SURVIVE and ADVANCE tomorrow. 1-0 is the only record that matters every week now. #WarReady
  5. Only everybody wearing a black jersey with orange trim tonight. This is the playoffs. 0-0. ANYBODY can beat ANYBODY on ANY given night. When it is win or go home, NOW is all that matters. And Rusk is NOW.
  6. A lot of people in East Texas may not know all of the connections here. Former Gilmer (now UTSA) coaches, Jeff Traylor and Matt Turner early in their careers were at Jacksonville. Both McCown brothers played for them there. In fact, ET QB legend (and future Head Coach himself) has often cited his relationship as a player with Coach Turner and Coach Traylor. And few know the powerful impact Josh has had on the Gilmer kids and program (current coaching staff included). Simply stated, most Gilmer folks consider this game a FAMILY AFFAIR. (I just wish the second generation McCown was wearing black and orange this whole time!) There is nothing but love, gratitude and respect here in Gilmer for all things McCown, Canady, Rusk, Jacksonville, Alto, Nach.. etc. The Buckeyes will Have their hands full tonight, rain or not! But we will also have our hearts full of love, respect and gratitude… knowing that the success we have had as a program here in this century would have never been possible without Jacksonville ISD, the Danny Long tree, and kids named McCown! Hide and watch folks. The generations of football stories that are yet to be told well into the next century will “touch base” tonight in Tyler. #FootballFamily
  7. My personal apologies to NL ISD for assuming the lights were “turned off”. (That already happened to us this season, so a little “butt hurt” assumption on my end). I am told there was a power outage across the entire area that happen to hit Paris grid, and it was NOT “turned out”. Again, apologies for the erroneous assumption and best of luck to NL.
  8. SH loss to NL says it all. Sad. SH has given up on football.
  9. Refs were beyond incompetent, and the “game” was a waste. But North Lamar pulling a “turn off the stadium lights” less than 5 minutes after the game ends should result in lawsuits and firings. You IDIOTS are going to get somebody seriously injured. Kids are loading equipment out of the stands and onto buses, equipment, etc and fans who drive 3 hours should be expected to stay and speak to their children who are players band members, drill team, etc. This was truly a wasted trip on all fronts. North Lamar ISD, your school board and administrators should be embarrassed at such a classless and dangerous stunt they pulled turning out the stadium lights. We have no control over who the UIL puts in our district. And you can get as frustrated as you want at your “team” on the field. But you can change a life if just one person steps off the bleachers wrong in the dark. Nobody drives 2 hours to watch that sorry excuse for a game in that sorry excuse for a stadium because they want to. They do it to come and support kids. Ours and yours. We bring a visitors side of revenue to your town with a good attitude and good sportsmanship. The reality is, Gilmer could beat your team 100-0 if that was the goal… but instead every kids plays and plays hard. The kid that scored with 1:00 left in the game has been in JV all year, works hard and deserves to run to score every time he touches the ball. If you think that is “running up the score”, then you obviously know nothing about this sport. The fact is, turning the lights out while people are in the process of leaving is purposefully a DANGEROUS act of criminal negligence. And whoever did this should be fired immediately.
  10. Spring Hill game from what I understand. But lots in the way of unis coming from the Buckeyes as the playoffs approach.
  11. They cannot help themselves. After all, everybody knows that David Smoak started this website so Carthage fans can relate everything in the world back to Scott. Just ask them. They will tell you. Or better yet, start a thread involving the Buckeyes. They will come running and SHOW you! Carthage = Karen
  12. No worries… that is just Carthage fans. They are Smoaky.com’s version of Californians. They will move in uninvited and take over your thread, raise your property taxes and bring all of their brainwashed views with them. We have mad respect for Lindale and y’all have a great bunch of kids, a great coaching staff and a fantastic town who loves and supports your kids in all of their activities. We love being there and it was a great game. Mega Kudos to LISD from Buckeye Country. (We should all just wish we were from Carthage… then all we would have to do with our time is troll around and find threads that have nothing to do with us, hi-jack them and fulfill our mission of making everything about “The Dawgs” too!!!! But shhhh… they are all over on the Cowboys thread now playing 6 degrees of separation between Cooper Rush and Coach Surratt… don’t interrupt them. Because any delusional idiot knows the only reason the Dallas Cowboys are not 0-2 right now is because Jerry Jones recognized that nobody from Carthage was in attendance last week!) Go get’em in that District of Doom Eagles!
  13. I don’t think anybody wants any part of the Lobos this year. Coach King took his lumps last season with all that young talent, knowing exactly how it would make them this year. And they are now coming into their own. Downright scary as far as HS teams go. I think this year is Longview vs WHOEVER, and WHOEVER will have lots of long and quiet bus rides home. Give me 48-13 and the L keeps on rocking.
  14. For one, I am glad Gilmer is NOT D1 and in that District! But having watched all the teams in this district play from last year (The Buckeyes pre-district schedule was basically like Gilmer was in the district!)… I can say this district is the bEastTexas version of the SEC West! Wow…. But as our friends on the Lindale staff talked about before our game Friday night, it is more about “Matchups” than it is about anything else. I think Lindale will have an advantage in the trenches with just about every game they play. That O-Line is dominating. And Thurman and the RBs run hard and tough. So as long as they stay ahead of the chains, I think they are 10 points better than Henderson (who is nobody’s “weak sister” btw!) Henderson is going to need Lindale to help them by beating themselves, I.e turning the ball over and making mistakes. And neither of those things are something I think Lindale will do too much. Lindale 31-15 over Henderson. I think there is a real chance some craziness ensues over there, like CH beating Lindale, Lindale beating Kilgore and Kilgore beating CH for a 3 way tie! But I also think no matter how the order goes, all three teams will wind up facing each other again later in the playoffs. They all have the ability to survive and advance all the way to pretty near Turkey time!
