    I think the KHSAA needs to do a better job of advertising. You can now put ads on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat etc. to try and get a younger audience. Also could do TV commercials

    This all became irrelevant last Friday. Julian has bigger fish to fry now.

    How do you think that affects the KHSAA? I'd imagine those schools would all join, right? Other than some potential realignment headaches, not seeing the big issue for the KHSAA.

    Monday - 8 girls games starting @ 8:30/10:00/11:30/1:00, empty the gym, start back @ 5:00, 6:30, 8:00, 9:30
    Tuesday - 8 boys games with the same format as above in the girls
    Wednesday - 4 girls games just like it is now, 12:00 & 1:30 then 6:30 & 8:00
    Thursday - 4 boys games just like the girls above
    Friday - Girls semifinal games @ 12:00 & 1:30, Boys semifinal games @ 6:30 &
    8:00
    Saturday - Girls Championship @ 2:00, clear the gym, boys championship @ 7:00

    What's everyone think??
    You're taking the teams who advance out of school for a full 5 days and adding the expense of hotels, etc. to those same schools. This could be a reason they want it as short a period as possible.

    KHSAA foots the bill for the hotels of the teams, nothing added there plus the KHSAA gives a nice reimbursement on the food also so that's not a problem. 8 of the teams will be going home after the first day in both tournaments so I don't see a big problem there either, teams that win on the first day could easily return home since the games are centrally located in Rupp, don't see a problem with any of it, would love to see them try it 1 year!!
