No it was about Carthage allowing the 3rd string to run the offense and score in the 4th after VA kept their starters in and scored multiple times on Carthage 2’s and 3’s.  I think he used the word “trash” if my memory is correct.

Id like to see 1 hunnit hung on em! Then see how they feel.

Another game to show there are too many teams in the playoffs.  Another chance to get hurt.  Maybe there is some value as a practice game.  How many games are competitive in the first 2 rounds?  

There will be plenty of competitive games in this round.  Just because Carthage doesn't have one, doesn't mean there aren't any.

They got 2nd in their district……So unless you go back 40 years where only district champs make the playoffs, V A is a legitimate playoff team.

To my thinking the purpose of the playoffs is to find a champion.  Two teams from each district makes more sense to me.  I may be in the minority on this I know.  I’m sure there may be outliers that counter this argument.  

Carthage got 3rd in district and won a state championship in 2016.

I just watched on line Van Alstyne versus Aubrey. 
It is not going to be a good game for Van Alstyne. 
They are about the same level as Rusk. 
I am afraid this will get ugly pretty quick. 

Should be at least the traditional 35-0 at halftime I’d think.

Other than being “about the same level as Rusk”, what is the additional scouting report on Van Alstyne (team, not announcers)?

Henderson in 2010 got 3rd as well an won State. Carthage who got first and also won state that year played Gilmer who got 2nd in that district  again in the 4th round I believe to go to the semis. They only took 3 teams then but the 4 team playoffs do have merits.

QB has a good arm and runs the ball out of the shotgun, he rolls out a lot to pass, but small O line and D line. 
The Dawg D line will be in the backfield all night. 
Defense is small and will have a very hard time with the Dawg running game. 
Dawg receivers will run by the secondary.
