    They are going in the direction of classification and that in my opinion is a mistake. The state should be as it is now. Great venue. True champion

    I am glad to see it. No one should be worried about the state going to classification, khsaa is not going in that direction at all. I read thru all the comments this morning and also read the article online about the Allen kid from Pendleton County. This was a great article, which addresses many issues in our state and high school basketball. The comment that stands out the most to me is someone said the 5 best from my school versus the 5 best from your school. That is what is used to be, even the article in the paper refers to how kids now move around, looking for an easier path to the state tournament. The kid at Bowling Green last year as an 8th grader now somewhere else. Times have changed and they are not going back to "my 5 best". It is now the best 5 I can put together this year at my school. Most schools that fall into this size group will be in favor of this tournament. And maybe there will be some of those games where 5 kids grew up together in one community and the same for their opponent. I attend the sweet 16 every year, and when you watch the teams play; you eventually hear someone around you talking about where the kids all came from, sad. And yes I know not all teams fall into that category, but it takes away from the tournament to me. Just like not having programs anymore at the sweet 16 takes away from it as well. Bottom line, if you like the idea, support it.

    Disagree. KHSAA doesn’t even want to listen about classification. These allows them even more to ignore the topic.
