I'm not buying into this Gilmer sob story. When we played them last year I felt like Kilgore was the better team overall and I believe we were leading through about 2 and half quarters..... and then Gilmer got the ball to their premier athlete and pulled away from us. That's what they do, they find ways to win football games. Kilgore will not underestimate Gilmer, ever.

Never let your foot off the gas.  You gotta remove any hope they may have left of winning.

I think this game is bigger than it might appear to be.  Neither coaching staff wants to be 0-2 on Saturday....but maybe from different perspectives.  But I do agree about maybe CH is an offensive juggernaut this season......and maybe Gilmer was not ready yet so  early in the season to get the stops they needed.  I definitely look for Gilmer to rely on the offense this week, and for their D to do a much better job also.  I did happen to pick Gilmer in the Pick-Em this week.....just cuz it's a home game for them.  All of this looks so much like the same situation Argyle finds itself in this week.  I also picked Argyle in the Pick-Em this week to right the ship and put up the points to win.

Here’s the thing, though, there’s no more Fluellen. Buckeyes, as of yet, don’t have that premier athlete that can turn the tide on his own, even against a superior opponent. The cupboard isn’t bare, by any stretch, but player-for-player (at least from what I saw week 1), Kilgore is a notch above, especially in the trenches.

And also, Gilmer starting 0-2 won’t mean squat, because IF that happens, both losses will have come to top-tier Div. I teams that will play post-Thanksgiving.

Buckeyes will be fine, regardless of the outcome, and I expect Gilmer to go three or four rounds deep too, depending on what round they line up with Carthage.

Gilmer is the away team, game is in Kilgore. Fyi.

Just going off week 1 matchups and how each team performed I'm going to say Gilmer is fixing to see a really really good Defense this week. And not to mention that Gilmer Defense has to defend against another dual threat QB who is pretty darn good his self. If Kilgore cleans up the penalties that hurt them on Defense last week then I believe Kilgore has no issue with stopping Gilmer. Minus any turnovers from either team just gotta say Kilgore has the better Defense to stop a good Gilmer Offense.

Gilmer 20

Kilgore 45
