The East seems pretty black and white. Bell is going to get Fleming/Mason and roll into the semis, and Belfry looks pretty securely onto round 3, with only a toss-up at Russell/Ashland in the mix.
The West, on the other hand, could get wacky. While P.T. looks like they will emerge and be RPI #1, it is not inconceivable that you get something like a Bardstown Round 3 home game if they knock off E-Town, CAL gets revenge on Desales and Taylor with a healthy Goodin upsets Glasgow. The what-ifs are very tantalizing.
What is a near certainty is that Bell County will go nearly an entire season all the way to the state semifinals without a real challenge, and that my observation is that the mountain teams rely upon great big strong kids and running the ball, whereas the teams in the West are all about speed, balance, and finesse. I'm sticking with my prediction that the 3A titelists with be teams that throw the ball well to complement a run game and play frenetic defense.
