Everyone keeps saying that this issue "needs to be addressed"...

Page 3 of Is the way to address this to simply kick the privates out? What kind of message does that send? Advertisement Last edited by 98NCCalum; Sep 21, 05 at ... 74 comments | 2261 Views | Go to page 1 →

    Not technically. District games between publics and privates are not optional as it stands right now. If we are put in a "district" with the public schools, would that mean we HAVE to play them to get to post-season play?

    You wouldn't have forced district games with publics.

    You would have 2 kinds of games: 1.) non optional games against other privates to determine post season and 2.) optional games that don't matter against whoever - just like now.

    Kind of like having a birthday party for a 5 year old, when ony the "chosen" get to spend the night after the festivities.
    In Northern KY, the public/privates have their own conference that they compete in during the season. I believe they do this for every sport and even have an all-sport champion. The NKAC golf tournament was this weekend. They have AAA, AA and A classes I believe.

    It also would allow the private schools to keep building as a division through the regular season until their numbers grow to the point that they are approaching 100 private schools in the state.

    In addition, you may see, down the line, home school students be allowed to form a team and compete in the private school division.

    This is funny and I don't mean to sound sarcastic. Public schools are told by some on here that they need to work harder and be more committed to compete with the private schools but now it seems an argument is going to be "some poor private schools are just not going to be able to compete against these powerhouses." Would that be a double standard being employed?

    Next question:

    Why does NKY have a different district "rule" about private/public district games than Louisville?

    I still don't have an answer to my question.


    I case anyone's forgotten the question:

    Thruth be told they probably don't want to play you in either. I mean district play leads to the post season.

    What do you mean? I don't think they do.

    Let me edit my previous post. The NKAC does not address football, I believe.

    Yes it is a double standard now, and that is what they are fighting to keep. They say they don't recruit, but it is the life blood of most private schools. How else are you going to get students. But KHSAA rules state you can't recruit. Am I seeing double here? Now obviously they are sending letters to middle school kids in catholic schools but why do coaches attend certain games and talk to certain kids after those games, why not talk to the whole team? Because you don't want the whole team but you sure do want that good player.

    In the public schools those players automaticly go to the high school. But if a coach went to another middle school and talked to a kid people would raise the roof. But the privates can go to several middle schools and talk to several kids. So what you have many times is an all-star team.

    There is a Northern Kentucky Athletic Conference, but it has nothing to do with post season playoffs. It is a title bestowed upon teams that kind of signals they are the best in NKY.

    I will say I think publics and privates in NKY get along better than in Lexington or Louisville and I think that is true because there are some very strong public school athletic programs that have prevented the private schools from dominating (other than swimming, golf, tennis, and volleyball)

    Can the private schools lay claim to the ownership, then, of all private gradeshool kids? Because those are the only schools that private schools are allowed to visit. The high schools here in Louisville hold open houses, and it's an open invitation to the community to attend, there's one collective event held at Bellarmine where any and all are welcome to come and get information.

    The ONLY schools the high schools are allowed to go into are private grade schools.

    I would say that the strong public schools have a good relationship with the private schools and not necessarily all public schools.
