    (Meaning teams in blind-draw districts shouldn't play each other in regular season.)
    Shouldn't HAVE to play each other in the regular season. Plenty of reasons why it is good to play. Historical rivalries, prep for the post season, etc.

    Augusta and Bracken will still be rivalries no matter what. Augusta always has an open invatation to play in the Igloo. And as far as preparing for the post-season, a seeded district game would help you prepare more.

    Why would Augusta go to the Igloo to play when Bracken will not go to Augusta? That is not much of a open invitation.

    This entire issue could be resolved if the state forces every district to seed. A blind draw is stupid IMO and ends up hurting the 2nd best team in the District if the draw goes wrong.

    It's not just the district that tournament that takes a hit, it's also the region. When the best two teams in the district draw each other that means that the two worst teams draw each other. This usually leads to a bad team in the regional tournament and a district winner from another district getting a pretty easy road into the semifinals.

    Until the State forces it, the 38th and 39th neither one will be seeded. If Bracken was in a District with Mason, Harrison, Scott, Campbell, GRC, MoCo or Pendleton (who historically have teams that would beat BC) they would vote for the draw as well. You simply cannot blame the smaller schools of Augusta, St. Pat, Nicholas, and Robertson for doing what's best for them.

    Correct. It is my esteemed opinion that the "quality of the regional tournament field" isn't priority number one when it comes to voting seed/draw.

    I believe this is for basketball. Any school, unless it's changed, can host volleyball, as Augusta did last year.

    I'll call it...isn't this EXACTLY what Bracken County is doing by refusing to play away at these sites ? Holding Augusta and St Pat "hostage" until they decide to see it the way Brooksville does ?

    It’s give and take BirdBrain. If they won’t give us a seeded district then we are going to take our ball and only play them at home.

    It's no loss for those two not to play Bracken County. Let Bracken continue to look stupid in all of this.

    ....because they look like they are holding Augusta and St Pat hostage until they get what they want....or else they are taking their ball and staying home.

    Do people in Brooksville really not get how that looks to everyone else on the outside ?
