Ok, my prognostication on this little game: I have no idea scorewise.......... But I believe Gilmer will win. But what I do have faith in, is, that this Buckeye team is going to leave the mistake bugaboos behind. They are going to come out with a solid attitude about themselves, they are going to be focused, and more fired up than they have been in any game this season. We are going to be playing with a little chip on our shoulders, and shut up our fans, (me included) who say we aren't playing up to our potential, and lacking focus. The Bucks are "fixin' to" kick it in high gear and put their game into peaked out mode. And we are going to play with that style of play for the rest of the season, no matter how long that might be. That,,, is what we are going to do. Let's kick some Cardinal hiney Buckeyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My only concern is Gilmer might underestimate a team it has beaten by a combined score of 123-0 over the last two seasons. That might be some sort of school record for worst two-year beating of an opponent.

 

Nah, that would be the years 1927 & 1928 against Henderson

 

1927 - Gilmer 52, Henderson 0

1928 - Gilmer 101, Henderson 0

 

A combined score of 153-0 in two seasons.

This is exactly the type of team that can beat Gilmer. They won't make mistakes, they will be disciplined on defense, they will control the clock. Think Pleasant Grove but better. Gilmer struggled mightily against them. I will cheer for a Gilmer win. My daughter doesn't get home from college until Saturday and she wants to see the Buckeyes play. But if Gilmer isn't careful they'll lose this game.

Melissa is a very young team that is made up of mostly under classmen. Melissa tends to get complicit at times because of their youth only starting 5 seniors and out of those 5 only 1 started last year. They are starting two freshmen on offense and defense with 2 or 3 sophmores and then the rest juniors. In Melissas loss to Prinecton they lost in the last 7 min of the game when a turnover snow balled on them. Then it was 10-7 at the half against Celina. In the 2nd half Celina made some adjustments on defense and Melissas young team had a hard time. Not to meantion Melissas qb got injured in the game but played through it. Even though the score looked bad the game was closer than it appeared. Against Aubrey Melissas qb was still playing hurt which caused the offense to struggle only scoring 21 points. There is no doubt Melissa had more atheletes and could have won the game if the qb was 100.%. So in saying that it is what it is and here we are. The Cardinals are physical but small and they play very hard. Gilmer is the favorite and rightfully so but this is not the same Melissa team that Gilmer beat up on the last few years. If Melissa comes out and plays a good game and Gilmer makes some errors Melissa can win this game. However that is a monumental task for the Cardinals. The Cardinals went from 1-9 last year to 8-3 and should be honestly 9-2 if not 10-1 in the 2nd round of the playoffs this year not a bad turn around. It will be fun to watch the Buckeyes again as yall are great program with class.

I think Gilmer wins. Sounds like Melissa's youth and inexperience might hold them back. I know Coach Nally (Melissa's OC former Frankston HC) offense is tough to stop. I saw it for 4 years straight and he is one of the best in my opinion. Could be a close game.

How is your defense?

 

Looks like your offense is pretty good, but the D is lacking. That is pretty much Gilmer this year. If Gilmer does not have any turnovers, we can simply outscore Melissa. If we have turnovers and penalties like we have had for the past two seasons, Melissa has a dang good shot and probably beats us.

If you have any info or insight into Celina would you go and post on the Gladewater/Celina thread? Looking at the stats they look unbeatable. Anyway I don't want to hijack this thread so if you don't mind posting on the other one. Thanks

Defense is hit and miss. Hard hitting but young and prone to giving up big plays from time to time. The defense has gotten better as the year has gone. Against Celina the defense ran out of gas because Celina's 300lb + oline was banging on them. Melissa is up and coming, im putting everybody on notice Melissa will be the next Argyle and next year you will see what im talking about.

Having seen Melissa play several times this year, I honestly don't see how Melissa could beat Gilmer. It's not going to be the rout that it was the previous two years but close. Melissa is a very young team and at times they play like a really young team. Stated earlier Melissa scored in the Princeton game w/ 7 mins left to make it 14-12 and then the wheels fell off and they ended up losing 35-12... Don't be fooled by the scoring number they've put up a lot of points against weak competition. Haven't scored more than 21 against a team with the same talent level as them.
