    3A: Where is the Line?

    Each week BGP produces a top ten of teams in each class. This week 3A looked as follows:

    1. Belfry
    2. Corbin
    3. Boyle County
    4. Elizabethtown
    5. Central
    6. Caldwell County
    7. Lexington Catholic
    8. Western Hills
    9. Casey County
    10. Larue County

    My question is: where is the line as to who can win a state championship and who can't? Can all ten teams win a title? Can only Belfry? Who in between can be winners? Give your answer and your reasons below.

    I think the champ will come from the top 5, and the next 2 certainly could make a run at it.


    While we are talking about 3A playoffs, I don't know if I am the only one but I kind of looking forward to the cross bracketing now that it has sunk in. That isn't an endorsement of the cross bracketing, because I don't think it is the best option for this class, and I think it is going to increase travel time and expense, meaning schools will make less money. I especially don't think the 4 seeds will benefit. If I put all those practical things aside and just think like a fan, I believe I will enjoy the games.

    I think it is going to make the first few rounds more interesting and the playoff run will be fun, at least for Belfry. I know Louisville will be a long trip for the regional finals game, if they make it that far. but I think playing teams with different names on their jerseys than we are used to is going to add some interest. I would rather see Waggener/Belfry in the 2nd round instead of another Russell or Lawrence Co game.

    Mostly I think I am just pumped up thinking about a possible trip to Central. That really gets my juices flowing.

    I think Carpe is a Waggener guy so I'm guessing he's thinking the Wildcats.

    PTownDude is a Caldwell County so not sure why he didn't click on them, unless he's got his eyes on someone else.

    The story is still out on Casey and Larue. 2 of the weakest schedules I have seen to so far. We find out about Larue tonite and Casey on the 20th.
