    Sore Losers Sending Bad Message

    NO GOOD REASON TO HAVE SEPARATE PUBLIC, PRIVATE HIGH SCHOOL CHAMPIONSHIPS

    By MARK STORY

    HERALD-LEADER SPORTS COLUMNIST


    In the annals of Kentucky sports history, 2005 A.D. will live long and live large.

    As the year of the Bad Idea and the Sore Loser.

    First, the Oregon Boys in charge of UK football managed to destroy the best thing about college football in Kentucky -- the season-opening custom between UK and Louisville.

    Now, apparently not to be outdone, public high school officials have come forward with another doozy.

    Separating high school sports championships in Kentucky into a public school division and a private school division -- as a group of public school superintendents is actively politicking to do -- is not just a bad idea.

    It is a spectacularly bad one.

    It would have been a good article if he hadn't had the ridiculous paragraph about the UK-UL game.

    I agree. It was a good article but the UK_UL thing was stupid and out of place.

    I bet you are right
    Many of these schools are like colleges and can pick from wherever... and just pray they don't target one of your players.

    Great Article, I love the examples of the public school powers who have had players come from other systems. How can Scott County with an honest mind support this bill as they have.

    Great article. I don't think it's even across the board but I have been in the schools that supposedly lose the athletes and the schools that supposedly get them. I have a REAL hard time believing that there aren't A LOT of Public schools that get as many transfers if not more than some a lot of the Private Schools. The funny thing is that a lot of those schools are the one's that are crying the most!

    I attended a public high school and I think the debate is silly. No two schools are identical. As such, in a comparison between any two schools, one will have an advantage.

    That is no reason to change the current system.
