    Well it took 7 pages before someone from Caketown turned it around and blamed Boyle county for Highlands using an ineligible player. Talk about low. Wouldn't it be nice if some people just stepped up and said yeah we screwed up and now we have to pay the price. I would love for Highlands to play Boyle with Mitchell but that isn't going to happen. I can guarantee you that Chuck Smith and the REBELS had nothing to do with this, it has been ongoing all year long.

    As a Rebel supporter, I assure you we want nothing more than to have Mitchell on the field, legal or not.

    So what if he is still inelligible come Saturday? Play him anyway. What are they going to do, lock HHS up? If you win, you keep the trophy, the heck with what the record books. And if we win, we get the trophy.

    Boo to the KHSAA, I do not fault the decision, but the timing is most inappropriate. What difference does another week make? If this happens after the fact, at least we all know who truly is the 3A champ.

    At some point during the 3A game, I propose a collective boo from both sides to show our distaste toward the KHSAA.

    I sure hope you are not referring to Chuck Smith!! Chuck and TITLE TOWN are nothing but CLASS and have nothing to do with this!!!!

    I think this should be a fair warning that if the Highlands are cheaters remarks keep coming then this thread will not last long and it will be closed. So let's just stop that because it will go no where in the long run and get nothing that we want to know accomplished.

    Trust me Smith has bigger worries on his own staff than to worry about the eligibility af a player on another team.

    I wasn't for sure before and never bothered to check but now at least Lawrence County didn't have the worst record to qualify for the playoffs this year.

    Thanks Highlands

    Exactly! But you're not going to get the sour grapes bunch or the Highlands haters to understand those facts!

    Why did you quote me? I know this and tried to re-itterate those same sayings into Birdfanactics head. Re-read my post again.

    I'm going to say this again: The KHSAA did not cause this to come down so late: the KHSAA ruled about thirty years ago it seems like that Mitchell was inelligible. The courts finally got around to overturning another court's injunction that let Mitchell play. That's not the KHSAA's fault.

    These risks were known going in.
    Stay tuned!

    Again, the KHSAA did not choose the date, so boo the Court of Appeals. The KHSAA filed the appeal weeks, months ago and the Court of Appeals ruled on it today. Bad timing? Yes. Fault of KHSAA? Hardly.

    You are correct, Highlands still has to play for a state championship, so I hope they still do have some fight in them. However, the tribe has spoken, Mitchell has been voted off the island.
