  1. Yep. But that does us no good, if we don't have the time to get the ball to them.
  2. Probably not near enough, but it comes down to matchups, sometimes. We expect Carthage to win, but that ain't stoppin us from also expectin the Buckeyes to give it their best effort and hope for some lucky breaks. Playoffs have a way of giving us unusual winners and losers at times and maybe this will be one of those times for us to steal a win from the Dawgs. Gotta see how it plays out, but yeah, Carthage should win.
  3. Aubrey has a speedy #1, just like Gilmer. Their #1 is not quite as fast, but probably faster than anyone we have seen yet. He gets around end, he is gone, just like our #1. We need to contain better than in the first half of last week's game and then not let them open up the middle of our defense. Yeah, right, like our defense is gonna magically shut down another team, especially in the playoffs. We will have to be happy, to just survive another week, if we are lucky and luck factors into a lot of playoff games.
  4. Sunnyvale beat Carter, but after seeing Sunnyvale last night, I could see Stephenville maybe having some trouble with Carter.
  5. I think their coach had to give him some breathers, cause our defense absolutely wore him out, letting him run wild, with big, long runs around the ends, in the first half and right up the middle in the second half. Anybody get his rushing stats? Seems like he may have run for 200 yards. We were sure thankful, every time they sent in #16, to give our defense a breather. Peterson (#1) is just a sophomore.
  6. Our Gilmer Dudes are way, way way, worse and it ain't even a close comparison. The Carthage announcers will have to step up their homerism considerably, to compete with our broadcasts.
  7. Looking like last year, all over again for Carthage. Opposing QB that they cannot stop.
  8. Not looking like Carthage, these last few minutes.
  9. NFHS seems to have about a 1 minute lag on my feed. Long wait to see the Dawg TD.
  10. Gee, I guess Carthage can plan on playing round ball, after this coming weekend. Sounds like PG is absolutely loaded. Were all of these D1 players out with injuries, when they played Gilmer?
  11. Pleasant Grove seems to be this years Pittsburg. Put in a new system to get the most out of the personel you got. Pittsburg had a nice run in last year's playoffs. This year, Pleasant Grove seems to have changed their offense, mid-season to improve their efficiency and options. I do not see the change making any difference against Carthage. They might be more dynamic on offense now, but their defense will not be able to contain the Dawgs. Then you have the Carthage defense and well, checkmate. Just did not see any "wow" atheletes playing for PG, when Gilmer played them. They have had 2 to 3 of those on each team the last few years. Make no mistake and do not underestimate them. They are still coached very well by Gipson and he will get the best out his players. I expect another 21+ point win by the Dawgs.
  12. Yes, I feel like the calls/non-calls/bad-calls were even for both teams. That interception/non-interception, would not have been a difference maker. What could have been a difference maker and swung the momentum over to Gilmer, was the long fade to the home sideline that Carthage intercepted. That has been a Buckeye bread-and- butter play all year. You couild tell the Dawgs had practiced defending against that play a lot. The safety came over in perfect position for the interception. To me, that was THE play that could have put more pressure on Carthage, had they not intercepted it. In the end, both teams showed why they were ranked #1 and #2. Good game and I look forward to Carthage finishing out with a perfect season and another championship.
  13. Our punt and overall kicking game really sucked against Rusk. Sometimes a team with a great punter can tilt the field in their favor. That happened when LE knocked Gilmer out in the first round. Will Middlebrooks was a amazing punter and pretty good QB. No, Gilmer does not have the best special teams, just good athletes, like Carthage. Some games, our special teams are the GOAT and sometimes they play like a 7th grade B-team. Our announcers make me cringe and roll my eyes a lot, as well. Take our broadcasters as fun entertainment and laugh at the outlandishness. 'Bout all we all can do, cause they ain't gonna change.
  14. Probably will not be close BUT, you should remember that this year's Buckeye Seniors were in that 70-14 game 2 years ago, so they should have a little more to prove, this time around. Yes, Carthage should win handily. I'll be there to support our team, even against tall odds against us.
  15. Not much to say except, Gilmer has been in more State Championship games in the last 2 years, than Carthage.
  16. You're saying we have a chance? Have you not been reading what the Carthage folks have been warning us about what is gonna happen?
  17. Gilmer's QB is young and learning, while making mistakes when under pressure, which is often because the offensive line has not seemed to jel this year. So, you are spot on about our offense being weaker than the defense. Offense can still hurt you, but the stiff Carthage defense should keep us under their thumb. Our main hope is that our defense can slow down the Dog offense, to keep us in the game and create turnovers. This is, if both get by this week's opponents.
  18. We all remember that time the Buckeyes played a 4 loss L-E team in the first round of the playoffs. Take nobody lightly.
  19. Yes, according to the Pittsburg ISD website. That's how I plan to get 'em.
  20. Misery surely loves company, as times have taken a turn for the worse at San Augustine, Groveton and Grapeland. I cannot remember all three being so down in the same year. Who else is missing from this group of hard luck or hard times teams?
  21. Probably all of them. We live in a different world from the one many of us grew up in, where only sailors and marines had decorated forearms.
  22. Yep. Tall and skinny if you can believe that. Went to Kilgore College before Oklahoma. Back when Groveton vs Alto was almost always a huge deal.
  23. Did they even get one first down in the first half?
