    As a long time official and sports advocate, now is the time for the KHSAA to start seeding of tournaments. I just watched the baseball draw and the 6th and 7th region drew each other again in the first round. The 8th drew the 9th and potentially Simon Kenton, last years runner up.. You potentially could have the winners of 4 out of the last 5 state titles face off in the first round with St X and PRP, currently ranked 1st and 2nd in the state. In basketball, Trinity and Scott County faced off in the 1st round of the sweet 16,, ranked 1 and 2. While it makes for great drama in the first round, it puts the other 14 regions at an advantage by possibly not using their #1 until later in the tournament. The baseball coaches and Bluegrass preps put out a poll every week so we know who the top teams are. Even if you seed only the top four so they won't meet until the semifinals.

    1000 percent agree with this. Pretty good chance St. X and PRP stay 1 and 2 in the state polls through the end of the season, and if both get through their regions, they will play in the first round. Same thing happened last year with Trinity and McCracken County. I'd like to know how many other states use a blind draw to seed any post season tournament. It's come to the point of being ridiculous.

    If not seed, why cant they have rotating regions? Every 16 years it resets, everyone knows years in advance who matches up. Its not hard. Blind draw is the dumbest thing ever.

    I'll vote for seeding right after classification ... if we are going to start following the lead of other states might as well do it right.
