    Thank you for replying in a rational manner. Why would Highlands have to forfeit the regular season wins then?

    What was Mueller suppose to do???? The court said he could play so he let him play. Now the court says he can't play so Mueller won't play him until this gets overturned again by the end of the week. If I was Mitchell's dad and a court said my son could play and Mueller wouldn't play him I would sue Highlands. What was Mueller suppose to do??????? :mad: :mad: :mad:

    You yourself said these are rumors, so you go out on limb and blame Smith for something that I'm sure he had nothing to do with or at least none of us would know if he did. I'm sure he has been practicing all week and watching film in hopes to win instead of being on the phone with a laywer.

    Now, like I said, while I don't think it would be fair to allow Highlands to continue to play, it's also unfair to call Highlands cheaters.

    Not so, BF.

    The temporary injunction did give the OK for Mitchell to play, but was subject to be overturned by the higher court. Which happened and which also means that the injuction was never valid. So we revert back to the original KHSAA ruling of ineligibility as the prevailing ruling on the case.

    These risks were known going in.

    It was more complicated than that and both parties knew it. Mueller knew the whole time that the if the appeals were overturned this could happen and both parties knew the appeals would keep coming so it was a huge caculated risk. Also I would like to see where a court would favor an upset dad over a prominent coach who doesn't want to jeopardize his team.
