This is just bad all the way around. Something should have been finalized before the season started period. I feel for all the team involved in this. (Highlands, Bell, Boyle, Covington Cath., and the rest)
    How were those kids cheated of going to Louisville? If they wanted to go to Louisville they should have beat Highlands

    Fieldler was winning football games when Williams was the running back.

    Anyways,
    C horn,
    Highlands beat Bell Co. and Cov. Cath. with an illegal player. Its like the best player from a neighboring highschool showing up at Bell County and us playing the season with him. Imagine how much better Bell would be with another impact player. It was against the rules and what they did greatly effected Bell's chances of making it the the championship game.

    Once again, I said PLAYERS. What do you want the PLAYERS to do?

The just got pounded by a superior team and went home losers. I would never cry about losing a game because of a transfer. A loss is a loss is a loss.
    You are right that a loss is a loss, but the rules state that if you transfer that you have to sit out a year. He didnt and now is getting punished, I hate to hear that because he is a great kid and a great player, but I also do feel bad for the other playoff teams that dont get a chance to actually see if they could've won the title!

    bobcat101, Mitchell did not recover the ball in the endzone and mitchell was the one Robbins ran over on his way to his touchdown. Maybe another DB makes that tackle? Talking and speculating is great but lets just let this thing play out and go from there. Bell Co. had a great team and gave the birds all they could handle.

    Now the decision would need to be made by the staff to play Mitchell or not. If HHS would win with Mitchell and later again lose in the COA, the Birds would be stripped of the title. Any of this sound reasonable
    Exactly!

    RebelBred, are you sure that's what the rule states? I personally know of kids who have played one year and then moved and they were allowed to play. One that comes to mind is Jeremy Britt. Didn't he play varsity at Warren East and then move to Danville and was immediately allowed to play?

    I cant speak for the BELL CO faithful, but I doubt after the way they played last week leaving everything on the field and playing there hearts out, that they did not, GO HOME LOSERS!!!

    Players don't make the decision as to whether he plays or not.

    But they are going to suffer the consequences of that decision.
