Instead they have a chance at a state title and they still might not have to forfeit any games. So apparently if you're good enough at cheating then it's ok.

    I tell ya what you can have them all plus I'll throw in Pinner as long as you can prove they're all high school age kids. That is the one thing that people are omitting when they try to compare Pinner's case with this one.

    My apologies for that, I thought it was humor at the time, but it was not.

    That's true. I guess this case is still undetermined so who knows what will happen between now and then, i think both teams need to keep their focus on the game saturday.

    So I guess you have never seen Hubbard run (please see Hubbard vs. Cov. Cath '04' and Boyle '03') or Nevels (please see Nevels vs. Mason Co. '03') or for more current footage (Nevels vs. Oldham '04')

    Hey all I was asking was for Smith to go public and say it.. don't you have faith in your leader? I just think a public statement would be classy from him since the Boyle faithfull claim to have no objections

    The topic of this thread is that a player is ruled ineligible. He should have been ineligible all year long. But now the Highlands players didnt get the chance to prove they could go through a season and be as successful as they are without their best player who is by the rules illegal. Also the teams they played had to face them with someone who shouldnt be on the team leading them. Its a mess unfair to all the players involved.

    The Highlands fans and players are victims here. Some are in denial that what was done was the wrong decision by whom ever.

    The people who have done Highlands wrong are the people who ruled the kid eligible when it was clearly against the rules.
    And the coach rolled the dice and has left his team shorthanded and unprepared for the loss of Mitchell.

    Now I'm not Chuck Smith, but I would think that he would make some kind of statement like that if Mitchell doesn't play. But I can't guarentee it.

But you take Robbins, Barton, or Rogers off Bell's team its going to have an effect on how good we are. And that goes the same for Highlands.

    I'm not trying to take anything away from Bell or their kids they are an amazing group of competitors. I'm just trying to say that Highlands will not ball up and die because they are missing one of their 'stars'. I believe Bell would be a lot worse off without Robbins than would Highlands without Mitch.

    Mitchell, the best back you had and the one who is counted on to get tough yardage. If Hubbard was as good as Mitchell him being in the program for years, would have been the one carrying the load Im guessing. And Im sure it would have made the defense a little more suspetible.
    Also, last year has nothing to do with this year. Its a different year versus different opponents. aka. Bell County. If Mitchell doesnt cause the fumble and them make an unbelievable leaping over the defender, return for a TD then Highlands are not playing Saturday. He made huge plays in a big game to win the game.

    This is my last post tonight. Highlands, even if they do win Saturday it will mean nothing because they didnt do it the way the rules state for it to be done period!

    Reverse psychology; interesting technique. I think I studied that in my Psych 101 class in college. I take that back I think I saw it yesterday on a rerun of the Cosby show when Theo wanted Rudy to do him a favor.

    Please spare me the drama. We'll be just fine without your tears. Thanks anyway though.

    All Mitchell had was an injunction. Everyone knew this had to be resolved at somepoint. The timing stinks for Highlands, but courts have more important things to deal with.

    Coach Smith doesn't need to be making any statements. This issue is between Highlands, the courts and the KHSAA. All Chuck Smith has to do is prepare his team to take the field Saturday, Mike Mitchell or no Mike Mitchell.
