    Positive Attitudes

    Why don't the people who want this to split start their own league. I know I said this before, but again if the people who want to play St.X and Trinity need to vote against the split and stay in the KHSAA or start their own league.

    The bottom line is this.... Some people need to quit making excuses and find ways to compete. Yes, there is a way to beat St.X and Trinity. It is simply called out working them. There are many athletes in Louisville and I know they do not have the best athletes out of Louisville. As a matter of fact, how many kids actually go on and play college ball from these two schools. More than some, but if you look on signing day I see a lot of Public school kids signing. I will say this if you find ways to beat these guys as much as you do finding excuses that you can't beat these guys, I bet they wouldn't have as many state titles, but until you out work them you don't have a chance.

    I know that I poo-pooed this idea before. But now with this piece of garbage proposal, I think this would be a fine idea. Let the teams in who wanna be in and put you as the commissioner. I think you would find many of the better teams would want in and who could blame them.

    I know there exist issues between Private and Public schools and their athletic programs, but kicking out the privates is an absolute joke and doesn't fix anything. If we had a ton of private schools, I could see a possible split as in some other states. But we are nowhere near any reasonable number that would make that even a consideration. I am proud to say that I didn't see any sponsorship from my county, either side North or South.

    I can't believe that I am saying this but let's start it up now. I am on board for the RPHSAA

    I'm not sure about our sqaud but I'd definitely like our squad to be in.


    Is sqaud a french cuisine?

    I want to start by saying that I do not agree with this proposal.

    Now it response to your out work them statement. Do you honestly think the kids at T and X work harder then any other 4A team in the state? If you do you are crazy. Secondly in response to your talent level statement at T and X. T and X may not turn out the number of D1 kids that most of the public schools do but that doesn't mean as a team they don't have better players at all the positions. Let's compare X to Henderson. X doesn't have a QB that matchs up to Fidler nor do they have a WR that matches up to Chris Lamar but that is where it pretty much ends. Their linemen overall are better. Their RB is overall better, at least now he is that Rainey is out. Their LB are probably better. Their kicker is better. Their punter is better. Their players may not be D1 prospects but I will take a team full of NAIA prospects over a team with 1-2 D1 prospects and no one else any day.

    You just told me nothing. Yet you found another excuse(s) why you will lose.
    Good Job you are very good at doing that.

    IMO, the work that's lacking needs to be put in by some adults and develop youth programs. I think everyone's putting too much emphasis on hard work at the high school level. I'm sure everyone works really hard when they get there. 8-10 years prior to that is what I think they need to work on.

    You mean...***gasp***like the Catholic Schools Athletic Association, that oversees the sports programs at the grade school level, where ***gasp*** kids are offered the opportunity to participate in flag football starting in 3rd grade? Blasphemy! Good youth legues would create an uneven playing field....which, in all seriousness, is the biggest difference between the players on private school teams, and most of those on public school teams. THAT's the biggest advantage for at least the Catholic Private schools....kids that have participated in organized sports from ages as early as 6.

    Yes, but I said it while being much more polite.

    I'm tired of being polite. I'm furious! The time for polite passed when this proposal was put forth YET AGAIN! Now, the gloves are off, and it's time to "go to the mattresses". :fight:

    There is no reason for the Henderson County's of the world to not be able to compete. At last enrollment count, Henderson had 2,182 students, 1084 of them boys. Yeah, St. X has in the realm of 300 more male students, but you're telling me that Henderson can't find, or better yet, train enough of these guys to be on a competitive level? St. X, Trinity, etc. are good because of both numbers and a good program to get players ready. Get a good enough coach and staff, and any 4A school should be competitive.
