    Regardless, the best thing to do is to let the teams play w/o Mitchell.
    It is a crummy way for a lot of teams to end their season losing to HHS, but there will never be a right answer for this.
    It just needs stopped from the get go in the future and maybe this will allow the coaches in the future to JUST SAY NO.
    I pretty much agree. There is no way to fix the past. Could something like this affect Dale's job? This scenrio will clearly carry on long after the state title game is over. Dale put them in this position.

    I think letting Bell play in the finals would be an acceptable answer. That may not be the actual outcome, but aren't you still rewarding Highlands by letting them play in the championship even they used an inelible player to get there?

    No.

    If you do that then CovCath would file suit. And so on.

    As unfair as it sounds, they did it for situations like this, ifits still the regular season its not to hard to unravel. But once the playoffs start things get complicated when dealing with these situations, fair or not this is the procedure the khsaa decided to use. It the easiest way to deal with the problem. Not fair by any stretch of the imagination, but probably the only way they can go at this point.

    Ineligable players in the playoffs dont count for some reason.

    I just got back from Highlands and the rumours are flying. There were 2 lawyers in our group who said that the appeals judge who ruled against Mitchell today was from Boyle land. There are 2 Northern Ky appeals judges and it wasn't one of them. i can't believe Smith would stoop so low. Go Birds :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    If Bell can't play for it, then I think that Boyle should just be awarded the title. That's just how I feel. After today, that should be it for suiting up for Highlands, they used an illegal player to come past other teams, and Boyle shouldn't be forced to say 'We were the best legal team in AAA!' which they would be if the game were played and Highlands won. The string of Highlands messing up the AAA bracket should end now before further damage is done.

    I've asked it once and I'll ask it again. Does the KHSAA ever, EVER, consider these kids?
