Prop #20 and football schedulesSince schedules are done in advance what impact will Prop #20 have? If you are Beechwood, for example, can you just drop Newport Central Catholic and Covington Holy Cross from your schedule no questions asked? Should you? Anyone?Advertisement

Oct 21, 05, 12:40 AM #3I would think if it's a school that voted yes. Then they will have no problem with just dropping a team.
But for the schools that voted No, would there be sancitons or actions taken against them in the future if they did not drop the private schools? I dont know, just wondering that.
I don't see how anyone can just drop a team they have become use to playing. You would have to think the students/coaches/players have come to know the opposing schools well enough where they may feel some sort of remorse.
I'd say teams will be dropped from sch. and those teams will just play the games they have to. But not all schools will do this.

In reality, this ruling doesn't mean much to district games. Those districts will remain in place until this action becomes law and that may be quite a few years. However, I wouldn't hesitate to drop a team that voted for the split from a non-district game. For example, I would hope that Coach Lampley has already sent the letter to notify Manual that we will not play them in 06'.

Oct 21, 05, 06:59 AM #5I know that X already has some sort of an alternate schedule for next year if things snowball. I know it could take years but I feel if it is going to happen it will happen quick. I am with LSU on the fact that we should not play any non district teams and kill the one's we do play, No Mercy, like in the past.

Deimos, you bring up an interesting point. I wonder if there will be any retaliation between public schools voting yes and public schools that voted no. Could another set of boycotts be on the horizon?

Oct 21, 05, 07:23 AM #7According to what I've read, I believe the districts remain intact, and all members oif a district must continue to play each other. It is only when playoff berths are announced that public and private will be segregated. In the district you mention it would look like this perhaps (my best guess):
Bellevue #1 seed public
NCC #1 seed private
Beechwood #2 seed public
Holy Cross #2 seed private
Dayton #3 seed public
Ludlow #4 seed public
Bracken Co, a hardy handshake, and maybe hope for eliminating independents next.
BTW - the 1a private brackets would include all private schools in that class:
Fort Knox (not sure of public/private status)
Louisville Holy Cross
Covington Holy Cross
Evangel Christian (opted out of state playoffs to date)
Oct 21, 05, 07:36 AM #8If the public schools decided not to play Owensboro Catholic, who would they play considering there are no other football playing private schools within one hundred miles of Owensboro?

I'm glad you brought up Owensboro Catholic. Being an O'Cath grad I was feeling that prop 20 hurt O'Cath the most. I know that the Daviess Co schools and Owensboro city school voted yes to the prop. Why would O'Cath want to play them anymore and give them the huge gate we bring in every game? Coach Edge might be looking for an alternative schedule as well, but I don't know if he could find ten teams to fill the schedule. This whole thing is ridiculous.

I have a feeling that more SW Ohio schools will be getting calls from KY high schools in the near future.

As GT stated, I am sure good teams such as Beechwood and Highlands will keep CCH and NCC on the schedule no matter what, face it, they are good teams and help out both Beechwood and Highlands by giving them great competition.
I am not too sure about HC, depends on what they have coming up, But I would like to see more Beechwood Vs GCL North match ups.

I don't believe that prop 20 said anything about regular season play. It only seperated post season play. I for one would hope that great games like Male vs X would continue and would expect them to. Probably even get a Male vs Trinity game in. They just won't compete together in playoff games. Lexington public schools would be crazy to not play Lex Cath if there was no playoff implications. They would make some good money at the gates. In Western Ky. maybe Hopkinsville and Christian Co. would start playing UHA again in the regular season in basketball. Knowing they were not going to compete agaisnt them in the playoffs.

Thats great, but what would they do for the other 8 games? I do not know of any other private schools in Indiana or Illinois with football teams that would be any closer than traveling to Louisville.
Oct 27, 05, 03:53 AM #14There has to be some redistricting done doesn't there? Take the Highlands football district. With only 4 teams, one being a non public, if 4 teams advance to the public football playoffs where does the 4th one come from? I believe the KHSAA staff is doing an "impact study" to determine how Prop 20 will have an impact on all sports. Issues like the need to redistrict will be looked at in the study.
