    I meant it more along the lines of the fact that Louisville schools typically don't venture out of Jefferson County much. Having to go across the state is a completely different routine - the whole day is different. You just never know how they'll respond.

    I think it depends on how much time you allow yourself between when you arrive and the opening kickoff. And, how you spend that time. I've never been a good traveler. Anytime we had a long bus ride when I played, it took me a while to rid myself of the malaise I felt from being stuck on a bus for a couple of hours or more, crammed into those seats.

    I still thought Russell would finish 6-4 after the 3 early season losses, win district and win a game in the playoffs.


    The Russell defense has really improved a lot over the season.

    I never thought Russell would be favored in the 2nd round.
